[FE8] Sacred Echoes [VERSION 1.0 OUT, 18 MAPS]

Hype! Glad to see it’s back, and with a promise of more for FEE3 2019. One of my favorites despite being short (well, when I last played)

I have a question.
How did you implement the worldmap path and node expansion?
To achieve these, I think it is necessary to expand saved data and work memory.
How did you implement it?

I have added more than the base number of world map nodes, but there are enough nodes in FE8’s data to implement all of Valentia’s locations through Act 3. This release only covers part of Act 2, so I have not yet expanded the work memory for saving it. (I am using aera’s save data expansion already, but space in work memory seems to be the main limitation for now.)

I’m still researching this, so I will let you know when I have a discovery.

There are documents about where the Worldmap Path is stored.

This vanilla routine has a bug where drawing the same path ID again consumes more ID.
For example, if you make an orbit around the continent, the road to the final will disappear.
If the road is not drawn, reset it and start again.
However, if you save without drawing, it will be clogged.
Then you have to start over from the beginning.

Since I encountered this FE8J midori and FE8J kaitou, I investigated.
There was a note in your hack that resetting might improve this phenomenon, so I wondered if I was encountering a problem similar to this one.

I made a patch to fix the problem.

However, this patch cannot increase the length of the list.
In order to increase the Worldmap Path, I think we have to make various improvements.

Would you like the opening movie of Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia? I am pleased to add it for you if you like it. It will take up about 8M free space.

That would be really cool, and I do have the free space for it (at least right now).

  1. Send me the latest patch if you have a WIP version except the current released version.
  2. Which voice language do you prefer? Japanese or English?

I’ve made a small update with some bugfixes, the next major update will be focused on getting support system overhauled and conversations inserted.

@MisakaMikoto - thanks so much for inserting! I’m not sure how to download the patch without a Baidu account though, could you give me some directions?

Is there any major planned differences from Echoes itself? Maybe some restoration of some OG gaiden features or art?

how to patch the ups file downloaded from the Dropbox link to a gba ROM?
And which gba rom I should use?
