Hello, we are Chinese developers that working on rebuild FE9 with FE8 and we want to reproduce all the material in FE9. Now we have done with FE9.

Congratulations! you guys finally find our released page. It’s not trolling in fact, we don’t have patch but the whole game file. Anyway, I think you can play fe9 in gba.

Thanks for Adthor, we have the patch now. We are building it based on Chinese version, I am not sure it works for Japanese. You can try this:

Don’t hack our rom!

3.0 is the last version of Fe9-re, we are moving to Fe10-re now. We want to rebuild fe10 with inherit save file, which means your effort in Fe9-re will be inherited to Fe10-re. So enjoy it!

Description

Fe9-re inherits all the systems of Fe6-re, including voice, bgm, occupation, mining ability, three ranks, villager transfer, pirate fighting, forging, the town is exactly the same as Fe6-re, and the champion is the same. It’s just more energy than it, and the heraldic inheritance store and clothing store may be opened in the future.

The energy shows that Fe9-re is the first game to invest in energy. Energy is used to activate active skills. The method of energy increase is to actively attack people. Orcs increase every round and increase active attacks. When reaching 30, you can incarnate. The energy behind the incarnation will drop whether it is being beaten or actively hitting someone. When it is lower than 5, the incarnation will be automatically released. The orc incarnation is inexperienced, and the human form also has the means of attack. The energy is greater than the opponent’s physique to rescue or let others travel.
Finally, the difficulty is explained. It’s a very important one.

Skill System

All your characters have the skills, pay attention to them. The skill system will helps you a lot. And you can use book to learn the skill same as Fe9.
Also, we have combat skills. When you select a weapon, push right or left, and you can use the combat skills. They are the same as three houses.

Maniac Mode

Maniac mode should be the most difficult mode in the current revision. There is professional restraint in it. If there is nothing special to challenge, don’t try. Maniac mode enemies will use combat skills. A soldier who has no chance to kill, use After the battle, the damage and kill rate will be there. The enemy’s attributes should be all green in more than ten and twenty chapters. Besides, it is quite difficult. It is harder than any revision you have played, and it may be optimized in the future.
Difficulty and difficulty, everyone knows the difficulty of playing re, this difficulty is the same as re, it is difficult to think for yourself. Ike should be fine with the ending.
On the basis of simple and difficult attributes, the enemy’s all attributes are deducted by 5. The choice of a pleasant game is particularly simple. It is unparalleled if you practice one.

The game is not only one difficulty, choose carefully. You can scold someone if you can’t beat the Maniac mode, but don’t scold me. There is a simple difficulty in it, so it’s too much to scold you.

Big Map Move

Instead of linear process, we add the map move part in fe9. After you finish chapter 12, you can go into three houses to buy/sell weapon, change class, go to gold mine, make weapon, level up and down, and so on. So the difficulty will change after chapter 12.

Garreg Mach Monastery

Let me explain what you can do in the monastery.

  • Quick Move: talk to three houses people to move fast, from corner to corner.
  • Bar: will let you buy food, level down item, villagers class change item.
  • Mine: go to the top of the map, you can go to the mine to earn money. You cannot get exp from here, and the item is randomly drop. The ore includes silver, gold and Mithril.
  • Smithy: talk to Lysithea, give her the ore you get, for example silver, and choose the weapon you want to smith, then you can get one.
  • Union: let you change the class to villagers.
  • Arena: 5v5 to get exp.

I think a similar project is also in development: Sacred Radiance Demo (FE9 Demake) by LagSpike and Stephano

Not sure how the two compare…

Are you and your team planning on translating this project to English?

I assume you are one of the team or the person who made this hack. Having finished this hack, I have some… things to say about this. First thing first, I’ll admit this is a pretty good rendition of fe9. Indeed it may not be 100% identical because gba limitations however, there are some additional features that may enhance the experience of playing this hack.

I’ll start with the positives

The Good Parts
1. Aesthetic

This hack is aesthetically beautiful… somewhat. The UI, the battle animation, the portraits (ofc it’s nickt’s afterall) the map tileset, it’s all pretty solid with some bug there and there but nothing too gamebreaking except for one instance which I’m gonna talk about later.

image
image

the CG cutscenes, while only a picture, is actually pretty neat.

image

2. Mechanics

image
The addition of Combat Arts. While there are some drawbacks to it, this can spice up the combat aspect of the hack. although this might become a problem soon…

image

image
Buff mechanic; I assume this was taken from Super Robot Wars which you can use SP to get a certain buff like higher hit/avo/crit rates, atk/def buff and so on. In this case however, this SP will increase 5 points every turn or every combat initiation. Some of the buff requires 30 SP, while some can go as low as 5. Every unit have different types of SP and when it’s used it works similarly to nils/ninian status dances.

image
as with most chinese hacks, there are some character which literally have 5 different promo option and some that are straight up promotes once. Don’t worry you can always reclass in this game. (as in demoting your unit into a mere villager which… isn’t that good in restrospect.)

3. Growth Rates & BST

You can see growth rates and total stats (BST) in this hack. As shown before, the UI is changed and these growths are pretty much copied from vanilla fe9 with some changes on their bases.

image

image

4. Base Conversation & Supports

image
and I don’t know how this works but this hack also has base conversation. There’s even an option to recruit Sothe for example, just like in vanilla game. Although I can’t read this but I think it’s kinda cool.

image
the support works like regular gba games where you have to grind turns with them sticking together. Sadly I can’t ship Mia and Ike even though the options are there. BUT…

image
you can actually see the support bonuses from a separate screen. Awesome!

5. Base Chapter

image
Due to this hack being made in fe8 engine, there’s a world map. And because it’s a Chinese hack, there will be some kind of City/Town where you can resupply, grind, and do other things.

image
and yes, it’s the same map as with fe6re just with some additional house that can be visited like the blacksmith.

That’s pretty much it from what I could find enjoyable about this hack.
Pretty interesting gimmick for sure however…
This is where the complaints came in,

The Bad Parts
1. Maniac Mode

image

it is straight up impossible. look at this stats on the generic brigand on ch 1. literally no one could double this guy let alone putting a dent on his hp. but that’s not all…

image

the AI is smart enough to use their own combat arts against our army which leads to everyone getting screwed in just 1 turn. that’s chapter 1!

also I was already 13 chapters in when I had realized that titania could change her weapon, but eh I’m already too deep into hard mode to bother doing maniac mode

image

I’d also like to mention that the next chapter is night impossible unless you grinded ike on ch 1 with him soloing the chapter. that and the enemies are still capable of using their combat arts which makes dodge/tanking straight up impossible.

Therefore for the sake of this review (and my sanity) I will be looking at the hard mode of this hack, which honestly is still pretty hard.

2. Laguz Unit

image

Laguz, when transformed, double their base stats. However, they DON’T give/gain exp when killed/kill an enemy. this will be very apparent in Jill’s boat map and endgame maps.

image

The only way for laguz characters to gain exp in anyway is either by being attacked in their human form, or by using the laguz stone which serves as a magical projectile when used. Essentially their laguz form are just gonna be chipping away enemies health and tank hits with no gain in any way. Added to the fact that their bases are mostly really REALLY low which makes a lot of them feel useless from other unit.

3. Unit Bases

image

look at this titania. look at that base HP. she gets downgraded from a Seth to literal Isadora. I assume that’s the intended way to balance her but I’m not done yet.

As you can see from titania’s stats up there, while the growth rates aren’t changed, their bases do. a lot of units are nerfed especially their HP. Laguz units are the worst contender in this. Not only they have shit bases, they also cannot gain exp in their laguz form. although stats are double when they transformed, that’s still doesn’t matter when they have such low bases.

image

…why

image

Speaking of bases, let’s talk about enemy bases. Every boss in this game is a literal joke, even Ashnard himself (which I’m not gonna spoil). Most of their stats are lower than the average enemy unit and can be killed easily. Even in maniac mode the bosses are relatively easy to deal with than the ambush spawn. I guess the real bosses were the ambush spawn itself xd.

4. Map & "Balance" Changes

I don’t have any complaints about the map design since it’s just copied from vanilla games with a bit of an adjustment to fit gba tileset, however there are few that I want to talk about.

Ch. 11 Blood Runs Red

image
One in particular is this. Yes, the black knight literally has an aggressive AI set on him which made this less of an anti turtle and more of a ticking gameover. Oh yea, did I mention that he has FULL 6 move mobility and could literally swoop all of your units in one round?

Ch. 23 The Great Bridge

image
This map thankfully doesn’t have pitfall trap, however its size was enlarged which could fit a lot more enemies. Alright so, this map in particular is so fucked up which made me think that siege weapons are a crime against humanity. Oh yea ambush spawn too.

image
All because of this cursed weapon. One of the most powerful siege weapon in hacking history. Sure it can’t double but when it hits, it hits HARD. Oh yea, by the time the second half of the game came around (ch 16+) enemies are gonna be really strong so… if the constant barrage of enemies, laguz, and ambush spawn doesn’t kill you, this one might just be it. Oh and lastly, every enemy is set into aggressive AI so… the ballistae can move and swoop your unit if you’re not careful.

Ch. 24 Battle Reunion

image
This map… oh boy, what do we got. we got green units that will die in 3 turn baring Geoffrey, the black knight which literally moves, and the clearance bug on the last turn. No way to rush in head first since most of the enemies were relatively strong af and they’re all aggressive.

image
What is the clearance bug? basically on the end of the map turn, when a unit does a convo past the survive turn limit, and then seizing the map; sometimes the game treats it as the enemies are the ones who seized the castle, therefore a game over occurred. I had to restart this map due to this and it was not fun at all.

Ch. 25 Strange Lands

image
Next up is the Boulder map, where things went from 0 to 100.
see that sage? that’s a siege tome sage, 4 of them in fact.

image
Oh that’s not just any regular tome they’re holding, this shit is so broken doubling isn’t impossible; learned it the hard way.

However, while a Boulder mechanic isn’t applicable in fe8 yet, there’s another nasty surprise on this map. If you think you can just turtle up, then this one will gave you PTSD.

image
I present to you, the golden bird (or laguz royal generic). This isn’t an anti-turtle incentive, but more like a ticking game over. At this point the only unit who can defeat it are Ike and Rolf. A mere 2 unit. Even then I had to rig a crit for Rolf cuz he isn’t doubling any of them, and Ike can’t just one round it either. Oh yea since they’re a Laguz, they don’t gave exp in any way. High Risk Low Reward.

Ch. 27 Moment of Fate Pt. 2

image

At this point, this is when the rom started to tore itself apart and revealed that everything has been held down by a duct tape. On the duel with black knight, the map is so buggy units are practically invisible. Thank god he’s basically a pushover cuz you’re defeating him with super Ike.

Ch. 28 Twisted Tower

image
Next on this map is just straight up bullshit. Dragon laguz can attack from 1-2 range, there are lots and lots of other laguz which just wastes your weapon. And there are 3 initial golden bird generic. Oh yea if that wasn’t enough there are siege tomes & berserk/sleep too.

image
Oh also, on like the 8th(?) turn of the map there are 4 golden bird reinforcement, 4 of those! And they came again on the 10th turn if you’re slow which made them stacks. The only unit that could kill them are still rolf (crit rigging) and ike which… let’s talk about him for a moment.

Unit Balance

image
Similar to dragon roy from fe6re, this version of ike can change form into super ike (as I call it) which increases his stats and change ragnell into super ragnell with yet also broken stats.

image
Just like with true binding blade in fe6re, ragnell can change based on ike’s transformation. However, this comes at a cost. To balance this, Ike can only transform once per map, yes once… while roy’s fe6re could just freely transform with his dragonstone (if you chosen it). Also super Ike could only wield a single weapon type that is the super ragnell, which has 10 durability. Once it wears off, he’s practically offense-less. To counteract this, I bought repair kit which increases any weapon durability to 10 each use (3x). Meaning, you can’t just toss him to tank Enemy Phase cuz not every enemy are gonna die engaging him.

image

Thankfully regular ragnell has infinite durability making regular ike isn’t that useless, however the engame enemies are so strong you gotta be smart on how to utilize his transformation. Which also means regular Ike isn’t as broken as super Ike who can one round every enemy.

image

Last but not least, here’s another bug, this tibarn here has 0 hp. literally 0. Once he gets hit, the game breaks. I get that you want to make him invincible but this isn’t how you do it, honestly.

TL:DR this hack is pretty fun. Sure it isn’t 100% faithful since gba limitation but still, it is a pretty good demake of fe9. Also I played this in hard mode so I assume the post game content like 3rd tiers are locked behind maniac mode. And I played the first release of the patch (April 2nd) so as time goes this hack probably has been patched / fixed in newer releases. That’s all, sorry for my bad grammar.

In fact, the hack version is outdated. We have fixed some of the feactures, like the balance of class. You are right, the maniac mode is challenging compared to the original one. The difficulty is compared to FE IF. So feel free to try the eaziest one, which we think it is normal.

I had no idea that there was already a full GBA version of FE9. :upside_down_face:

May I know where to download the patch?

Thank you very much for your time and effort! :+1:

ah I see, good to know that it has been fixed in the next update.

btw I just happened to found this hack online few months ago and got around to finishing it this week. so yeah, my experience might not reflect the rest of the game at this point xd

We made so many versions to fix the bug and unit balance. But we think the most interesting parts in fe9 are laguz units and ike. They are more powerful than others so we want to keep it in fe9-re. Ike can clean map and finish fe9 in his own, that’s why we call him butcher in chinese.

Is there a release patch out? I’d love to try out my favorite Fire Emblem game on gba!

Do you intend to provide the patch?
