[FE8] FE:BR (MOBA Emblem) (1.04)

Choosing an already chosen weapon rank after a map clear repeatedly will scale into visual corruption (does not corrupt file) to this point.
MOBAller-13

Not a very threatening bug, but just felt funny to see as I attempted to look through, which made me ask myself - what will happen once you max out all weapon ranks?

1 Like

well this is certainly not intended, does look pretty though. i wonder what causes the glitching since you shouldn’t be gaining any weapon levels if it’s at max rank. something is probably overflowing somewhere.

currently, you should only be able to hit max weapon rank on every type of weapon if your tactician is hitting the level cap + you answered the questions at the beginning of the game. otherwise, there will be one weapon stuck 50 weapon level exp from S. i’m pretty sure that green units can’t gain weapon level exp, so there shouldn’t be a scenario where a player maxes everything legitimately /and/ can level up again.

I actually was wrong on what I said and mislead myself on that - the bug that crashes the game is actually caused by the tactician’s third combat (on their phase).
Been playing extra maps and found the crash issue again when having weapons equiped, and thus realized that the crashes happen on his third combat (the second one has a visual bug where the Tactician dissapears completely when attacking)

As an extra note, due to Luck’s cap being 40, pressing +Luck while capped will not trigger the block message, which can possibly lead to lost levels.

it might just be because i just woke up, but i’m very confused here lol. could you possibly get video of this happening so i could understand it better (preferably the whole map from enemy hero select to the glitching)? i haven’t personally come across this particular bug yet and i’m not confident in how to replicate it.

i forgot that the luck cap is handled by a separate patch, for now i’ll just edit the tactician level up event with the 40 luck cap in mind. patch in OP has been updated this change.

Roy doesn’t have a lv10 cap (being able to reach lv20), additionally, Mani Katti, Rapier, Reginleif and Wolf Beil’s description say “Effective against Infantry” and not “Effective against armor/cavalry”

with the help of LeskLyfeld, i’ve squashed a whole host of bugs. the issues with the tactician level up event have been (hopefully) solved.

  • you can no longer attempt to “skip” leveling up by pressing start
  • roy’s level cap has been set to 10
  • tactician level cap has been reduced to 30
  • tactician level up event now gives +3 instead of +5 to a stat
  • new npc has been added to the castle that can reset your tactician back to level 1
  • added journal entries for McCartney and the Reset flame
  • softlocks from summons attacking with s rank weapons fixed
  • achievement added

if your tactician’s level auto-rolls back because of the new patch, talk to the Reset flame to reset your tactician’s level. otherwise you may encounter bugs down the road. the link in the OP has been updated with the new patch.

in other news, serious work on the upcoming map has begun. the map design itself is nearing completion, so eventing everything has started. a lot of stuff is still in the testing phase but i can reveal a couple things.

  • 1 out of 4 of the new characters is done
  • the new character’s class is one that has not appeared in the hack yet
  • the new map is the first map where you can deploy two units (other than your tactician)
  • the new map features a new mechanic

release date? maybe before the end of the year.
as always, if there are any bugs i missed, i will patch them as quickly as i can.

the fe:br discord server is finally up and running, here’s an invite. the link has also been added to the OP.

my intention with this discord server is to recruit people willing to test maps/characters/mechanics/etc before they’re released publicly and to provide a space for players to give direct feedback that i can easily sift through.

finished patches will always be publicly released here. i have no intention of ever locking finished patches behind the discord server.

for those interested, i supposed i’ll talk a little bit about the current changes in the test patch.

  • revisiting previous maps (teleporter/map select) + resetting your tactician has been simplified and moved to your throne, accessible by visiting
  • map 5 (hourglass courtyard) is in a “playable” state (several things have not been programed in yet, more details in the server)

throne ghost

i’ll continue to work on 1.03 and try to get it out before the end of the year. thanks for the feedback so far.

Hello! It’s finally time to show off the long awaited 1.03 update. Saves from 1.02 should carry over to 1.03 with no issue. The patch is a little late because I’ve been playing a lot of the new kaycee mod for inscryption working hard on adding new features!

Map 5 - Hourglass Courtyard

This map introduces a few new mechanics like 2v2 battles and ghosts/summoners (akin to the towers on the way to the core in MOBAs). Learn more about these mechanics using your in-game journal upon arrival.

4 new heroes are waiting for you to take on and add their power to your team. 1 hero from the beginning of the hack makes a return. Can you guess which characters made it in just based off these map sprites?

2 v 2 on Every Map

When revisiting any previous map, you are now given the option to do a 1v1 or 2v2 battle.

In 2v2 battles,

  • Both you and the enemy are able to bring two heroes into battle
  • Enemy creeps/heroes/tactician are stronger
  • You start with 2000 gold instead of 1000
QoL Changes / Bugfixes

Countless small changes have been made since 1.02 to improve the overall experience, here’s a few of them.

  • Revisiting maps has been simplified and moved to your throne, accessible by visiting
  • All menu related events have been updated to remove the possibility for visual glitching
  • Multiple events optimized and shuffled around to alleviate some of the longer loading times
  • Difficulties serve a purpose outside of just a different colored file and -2/0/+2 stat changes
  • Added option to change the current difficulty, accessible by visiting your throne
  • Bags of gold now sell for their full price instead of half
  • Fixed issues with some characters’ default enemy palettes
  • Fixed bug where any unit having an S rank in any weapon would cause the game to hang when they entered battle (thank you 7743)
Difficulties

Casual

  • Tutorial map is mandatory
  • When a new mechanic is introduced, a tutorial pop-up will appear giving you a brief explanation
  • After the tutorial pop-up, a new entry will appear in your in-game journal, saying the same thing plus usually a little more
  • Default game mode is 1v1
  • Enemy creeps/heroes/tactician are weaker

Balanced

  • Tutorial map is optional
  • When a new mechanic is introduced, a new entry will appear in your in-game journal about it
  • Default game mode is 1v1

Painful

  • Tutorial map is optional
  • When a new mechanic is introduced, a new entry will appear in your in-game journal about it
  • Default game mode is 2v2
  • Enemy creeps/heroes/tactician are stronger

Hopefully these changes will help both new players and people looking to do speedruns/challenge runs.

tl;dr game coded weird, if you notice your save file change color when saving on a map's prep screen, it's okay it's not a bug

The difficulty shifts dynamically depending on a variety of factors and in-game choices. When you choose your difficulty at the beginning of a file, or when you change it from your throne, you are actually setting your “Default Difficulty”. Your default difficulty is used when you are visiting a map for the very first time. When you are revisiting a map, some of the options you’re given will alter your current difficulty. At the end of the map, your current difficulty returns to your default difficulty.

2v2 Challenge Mode

Stacking the enemy buffs from 2v2 and Challenge Mode, you’re able to take the enemy tactician to level 15. You’re going to have to plan ahead and use proper item management to take down this foe. This serves as the ultimate challenge for each map.

As always, I’ll do what I can to clean up any bugs as they pop up. I’ll update the link in the OP right after I post this.

Massive thank you to 7743 for fixing the issue with S rank weapons softlocking the game.

This is a really creative idea and actually looks like it works well.

I like this hack very much, and I want to know if tihs have new heroes or new maps after 1.04. I am from China ,I want to translate the hack’s language to Chinese. Can I get a permission from you about this hack? My English is not very good ,please forgive me for any grammatical errors.

there will be new heroes and maps after 1.04. should be at least two new maps.
i’d love to get this project translated into other languages. i’ll send you a message.

Hello! This game is really great! :grin:
When in the enemy’s turn, if one of our heroes gets killed, and the enemy’s director dies by the striking back of the other hero of ours, the dead hero will get lost. :thinking:
I’m not sure if it is a bug. :thinking:

hey thanks a lot!

When in the enemy’s turn, if one of our heroes gets killed, and the enemy’s director dies by the striking back of the other hero of ours, the dead hero will get lost. :thinking:

the ups in the OP should be updated with the fix (any hero that’s waiting to revive when the enemy tactician is defeated will respawn after the Congratulations! screen). so going forward, it should no longer be an issue. i’m currently working on a fix for any heroes already affected by the bug. i’ll try to get that out as soon as i can.

My friends mentioned that it seems that the enemy’s hit rate is higher than our hit rate. It is said that the hit rate is 20% higher than normal. Is this an existing setting or a bug?

hm i’m not sure if that’s a bug or not.
i know that enemies get promoted stat bonus if they’re in a promoted class. so player nmd trooper sue vs enemy nmd trooper sue, the enemy sue will have higher stats. other than that, i don’t know what could be causing the 20% higher hit.
what heroes/classes are affected?

:+1: :saluting_face:

My friend mentioned if it was because we were directing the stars to the enemy,

after removing both tacticians’ leadship stars, the dorcases (dorci?) are back to an even playing field.
dorcasstars
it seems leadership stars are just borked. i am using a pretty old version of the skills system patch at this point so that may be the culprit. for now i’ll be removing everyone’s leadership stars. the .ups in the OP should be updated with the fix.
