Fire Emblem: Reborn Dimensions, Olethian Princess

#1

No, seriously. Even though this was posted on April 1st, this is a legitimate hack. I will probably be completing it and making it publicly available.

A long time ago, a man named Mig64 released Fire Emblem: Different Dimensions Ostian Princess, an infamously bad hack featuring broken difficulty, messy pallettes, and memetically awful dialogue. Reborn Dimensions seeks to fix these problems with the original hack, telling a new story based vaguely off of the old one that uses many of the same characters. FERDOP uses humor and concepts from the original Different Dimensions, as well as new ones from my imagination the Fire Emblem community. And loads of placeholder portraits, bad splices, and worse dialogue, written by yours truly.

So far, Fire Emblem: Reborn Dimensions is complete up to Chapter 7 (although Chapters 6 and 7 could use some improvements). That chapter, and everything before it, is publicly available for play.

Have fun! I hope I’m making an experience that can turn the maligned original hack into something fun, new, and unique.

It’s pretty good so far, I must say.
If you need any help with mugs or maps, let us know. :smiley:

Version 0.2 is up! It includes Chapters 2 and 3, as well as changes to the first two chapters. I recommend starting a new save file to experience all of the new content.

#5

Congratulations on the update.
I’ll be giving this is shot later.

A brief warning: In Version 0.2 of the hack, the ending event of Chapter 2 contains some dialogue that should not be there. Lilian and Zach speak to a pair of characters who were removed from the game. Just ignore this dialogue; it’ll be gone in 0.3.

But seriously, Version 0.3 is finally out! This version features extreme changes, including:

  • Three new chapters: 4 and 5 added, as well as a completely new Prologue.
  • Skill system, including custom skill lists for every playable class!
  • Loads of custom music, including map themes!
  • New portraits and battle palettes for… some characters!
  • Knights with 5 Move! (Not as relevant, but still cool.)

The OP includes a link to the UPS patch for 0.3. I recommend playing through the hack again from the beginning, as old save files might not even be compatible with the new version.

Also, I have a request to make for anyone who wants to play this hack. For beta-testing purposes, I would like a save file with the following specifications:

  • Files at the start of Chapters 4 and 5, both on Hard mode.
  • The following items are obtained from chests or villages: Swordreaver (Chapter 3), Crescent Edge (Chapter 5).
  • Mundo is recruited.
  • No playable characters are dead (aside from a specific, mandatory death).
  • Zauber, the boss of Chapter 3, is not killed.

If you can’t or don’t want to do this, that’s fine. It would just be helpful for me in future playtesting, and might help me release 0.4 a little quicker. That said, thank you for playing my hack anyway, whether you send me this save file or not!

Random fun fact: This hack isn’t entirely dead! I plan on putting it into FEE3, and hopefully finishing the hack.

To tide you over, here’s some progress screenshots.

Thanks to @DerTheVaporeon, we finally have a proper portrait for Lilian! I was getting very tired of seeing FE7-colored Lilina during serious scenes.

One thing you may remember from the original FEDDOP was the Bolt tome. A brave tome that strikes with lightning, it was quite a powerful weapon for both player and enemy units to use.

This tome returns in Reborn Dimensions, Olethian Princess. But let’s just say…


it’s gotten an upgrade.

Damn, this looks nice! I’m honestly glad to see this hack getting attention!

But could you change Enemook to Guncannon and Kapool (yes, two of 'em)? It’d be a cool nod to this LP: https://lparchive.org/Fire-Emblem-Different-Dimensions-Ostian-Princess/Update%2010/
Many thanks, and good luck!

Also, tell me if you still need that save file! I’d be happy to procure it for you!

I’m thinking of giving Enemok the Gun Cannon as a personal weapon. I’m thinking it’s a weird bow with 0 Might and 100 Crit or something. (Probably a terrible idea. I’ll balance it out later on.)

But yeah, I’ve seen that LP. That was how I first learned about DDOP.

I already got a play testing save file, and I doubt I’ll need another one until 0.4 releases (which will probably be around the FEE3 submission due date, coincidentally).

Are you gonna give promoted Lilina the RedBean animation?

That’s what I’m thinking, yes. I haven’t made any custom animations, and a recolored version of that would work well for Lilian.

I’m thinking that her legendary weapon (this is a Fire Emblem hack, of course there’s a legendary weapon) is actually a sword, not an axe. Partially because I feel like it adds a neat gameplay element, and partially so I can say “No…this Sword is retarded,choosing an Axe user?”

VERSION 0.4 IS FINALLY OUT!

Feel free to play it if you want. It has:

  • A whole bunch of new portraits for characters.
  • More custom music!
  • Slightly more game balance.
  • Two new chapters: 6 and 7. Both of which need some polish.
  • The first promoted boss in the hack who you’re actually intended to kill.

You can use the download link in this post or in the OP. Either way, I hope you enjoy playing! Feel free to report issues or send save files to me here on FEU, or over Discord (RandomWizard#1805). Have fun!
