This proyect stills alive?

Considering Mikey said all of these things within only the last few months and he’s been working on this project for 6+ years… yeah it probably is. He just has a different development style from other creators.

I guess I should say something about the development of this project.

Depressing text

The project started almost 12 years ago, since then, me and my friends have been working on it. We have started over at least twice in the span of those 12 years just to make improvements in the story, and to use better engines.

The thing is, that we are adults. We have responsabilities and less time to work in side projects, that’s one of the reasons the development has been very slow.

On top of that, the pandemic affected us. I lost my job last year because of that, my friend, who is the main writer, is busy with his master degree, and Atey has personal stuff to deal with too.

This will sound rough, but, this project is not our main priority.
That doesn’t mean we’ll throw 12 years of work to the garbage, someday we’ll finish this project.

In the meantime, sorry for making you wait.

TL;DR:
Personal stuff is slowing down the development.

Hope you get well soon

Great post. I only said 6+ years because I wasn’t certain of the exact timeframe, but I was fairly certain I first saw Crossover around 2012. Crazy how it’s been well over a decade since you started. Keep at it! I love seeing how the project evolves along with your skills and life advancements!

Also… sucks you lost your job because of covid.

Some progres, yay~
SkillsTest_01
Ch. 9x is done, the first gaiden chapter with simple requirements.
Ch. 9 has a base conversation that gives the hint of how to unlock it.

I’m doing some experimental concepts with this chapter, like having a temporal team that will only appear in this chapter, and multiple endings.
There’s only one way to lose in this chapter, and that is allowing the enemies to take the gate.

And speaking about a temporal team, I made a simple ASM code to prevent units from trading:
SkillsTest_02 SkillsTest_03

Why?
Because I like to watch the world burn.
Because some players would simply give everything to Ike in the final turn.

And that’s it.
Next update: in 2 months… maybe?

I finally got a job, I’m adjusting my schedule to work in the hack again.
Hopefully I can do some progress more often.

This is the greatest plot twist of 2021. Glad for you, Mikey!

Yay ~ this project still alive ~

Facebook reminded me how old this thing is, let’s see the cringe.

Anime characters in a hack?
My teen self surely was a freaking weeb.
These two were supposed to be Hannah replacements, but since that mechanic isn’t present in FE8, they were cut.
And when the base was added, I decided to put Anna instead, she can be multi-purpose and fits better than random anime characters.

imageSkillsTest.emulator_02
Atey did a excellent job changing my old Lucius splice into a unique character.
imageSkillsTest.emulator_01
And she did the battle animation too.

imageimage
Oh, that’s an scrapped idea.
I was planning to do an Ace Attorney-like event, but it was too complicated… a bunch of conditionals… that was a nightmare, I don’t know what was I thinking.
SkillsTest.emulator_01
The AA characters stayed tho.

CG1
Some CG were cut too, because they didn’t make sense in the new story…

image
Oh… memes…
99% of these were cut thank god

Ah yes, I almost forgot this was supposed to be a playable character, but the creator of that character left the project and we replaced that slot with Soleil.
SkillsTest.emulator_02
Gameplay-wise, Soleil was a better option, because the only character that could use lances at that time was Florina (Ephraim joins very late), not to mention that we had an excess of magic units.
Kanningu is still in the hack as a NPC.

Well, I have improved this thing over the last 12 years, and I’m still working on it.
Currently I finished all the world map intros (Up to Ch. 10), and I’m halfway thru Ch. 10 (I’m working on the ending now)
Maybe I can release a demo once I reach the chapter in which the FE7 version was left (8~9 chapters from now)

Minor Update:
The maps up to Ch. 18 are already done because they didn’t need any changes.
I have to update the scripts because there are 3 characters that weren’t present in the previous version.
Here’s one:

The other two don’t have portraits yet, but we’re working on that.
And I have to adapt the events from FE7 into FE8.

That’s all for now.

I am very curious (╹◡╹):heart:

Ch. 10 and 11 are done.

But I have found some issues that I don’t know how to fix…
Arena
Spell animations don’t load in the Arena, even the native ones (including the arrow animation)

SkillsTest.emulator_01
Thanks to @Tequila this has been fixed.

SkillsTest.emulator_01
The game freezes when trying to use a skill scroll or a stat boost item (which now use the same system as the skill scroll) in the prep screen.
This bug is present in the current Skill System.

Also, I haven’t tested all custom animations, but some play a random sound when they miss.

Does someone know how to fix these issues?

Sorry for the long absence, I was dealing with [the virus] for the past couple of weeks and that prevented me from continue working.
Luckily my case was mild, but still it was a painful experience…
I have no damage in my respiratory system, and I’m fully recovered.
But I also had some unfortunate events… I won’t get into details of that, it’s something very personal and I’m still trying to recover from it. I only mention it because it’s part of why I was absent, but I won’t talk more about that.

Well, that being said, Ch. 12 was halfway done before all this happened. The map and the script are done, and I’m working on the events.
Also, new character joins the party in this chapter.

I still have some personal stuff to deal with this weekend, I’ll resume working next week.
