Fire Emblem 6 - Verum Sui (Complete)

This Hack is not for the Weak!

First ever completed Hack! ^-^

Rebalance/ Difficulty Hack of FE6

First off, I think FE6 is a great game, and while the game has its flaws, I believe all it needs is mostly minor adjustments. This is an attempt at that. I know what you’re thinking, another balance patch, however, I understand that most Balance Patches tend to do a little too much where the game doesn’t feel like FE6 anymore, and just feels like something else entirely. I do my best not to stray too far and keep it as close as I can to FE6. Most of these balance changes are conservative and if not, are within good reason.

Another reason for this hack is to make it more challenging. A problem of FE6 is that it has a tough early game and then past Ch 7 (Minus a few Chapters like 11A & 14), the game ends up becoming a bit too easy. This hack addresses that, making the mid game tougher, and making late game on par with the Early game difficulty. Even the early game has changed a little to make it a bit more challenging as well.

Also, the thing about this is that I don’t use cheap ways to make it difficult, like utilizing ambush spawns or giving enemies inflated stats. No, in fact, this hack gets rid of ambush spawns almost entirely. This hack uses other various methods, like map design, puzzle like enemy placement, inclusion of more side objectives, earlier spawn rates of enemy reinforcements, and more that make it more challenging. IMO, this hack induces strategic play similar to Conquest, tough but reasonable, no bs.

Here’s a list of some key changes…

Weapon Triangle is +/- 15

+5 Hit to a good chunk of Lances & Axes

Removal of Ambush Spawns (All Player Phase except a few like Ch 21)

Removal of Hard Mode Bonuses for Recruitable Characters (Mainly to nerf characters like Rutger, Miledy, & Perceval because their simply too strong)

Buffs to most characters, mostly to balance out the cast a bit more

Buffs to certain classes like Archers & Knights

Thieves can promote into Assassins using a Hero Crest

Additional promotional items that can be acquired in the mid game.

Early Promotion for Roy (Ch 16/ 16x)

And more!

While some of these choices might be a bit too much, (removal of hard mode bonuses on recruitable enemies, weapon triangle enhancement, slightly better hit rates on axes), I believe doing these changes makes the game more interesting. If you’re interested, see below for all the detailed Changes.

Congrats on completing the project! Would you mind sharing how you changed Roy’s fixed promotion? Been working on an FE6 hack for my own use and that’s a big necessity. Any help would be genuinely appreciated :slight_smile:

Thanks.

Do you mean the chapter he promotes? If so, it’s under the end event of Ch 21/21x. Just simply copy/ paste the commands that force his promotion onto the chapter you want.

Then just make sure you delete those commands from 21/21x. Which reminds me, did I delete them? Shoot, gotta check when I get a chance.

Forgot to delete the Roy Promo commands at the end of Ch 21x. Updated the patch to Version 1.01 to address that.
