Make A Really Terrific Hack: MARTH

Happy International Hack Release Day, or April Fools if you prefer. Two weeks have passed since the competition started, so about two more weeks remain. It’s not too late to start making an entry if you haven’t started yet.

Remember, the deadline is the 16th. Let this post serve as a reminder if you’re falling behind.


Hey, how do you want us to submit our entries? Should we DM you the patch, or just post it here?

Message me the patch. You’re also welcome to post it here in the thread as well.


Looks like I’ll be the first public submission then, if anyone else wants to try it.

NOTE: This chapter contains spoilers for the ending of Four Kings, if you care about that.

Taking place a year after the end of the Four Kings main story, I made a little one-off map about Zoe, Cindy, Vin, and Patty. I approached it the same as designing the trial maps in Four Kings, so there’s some light usage of skills, and the usual personal weapons. Enjoy!


I am also going to take the time to toss up my one up here as well, hehehe. It was submitted properly a bit ago.

I just treated this a bit like a mid/late-gameish chapter of sorts I suppose.


Where’s Fado?

  • Press A on Fado to win the chapter.
  • Selecting the wrong person or taking more than 10 seconds will enable fog for the turn.
  • Every 5 turns, the puzzle is scrambled.



There is one week remaining, so it is time for another reminder. Several submissions have already been received. If you haven’t started yet, it’s not too late.

The deadline is 11:59pm GMT on the 16th: that’s Sunday. Good luck to everyone.


7 Chapter-0
Here’s my submission. Credits and an installation guide can be found in the readme file.

7 Chapter-37 Chapter-9


Two issues that prevent me from submitting right now.
One is that I genuinely do not know how to send a direct message.
The other is that apparently I can’t reply with links so I can’t send the patch.
The former is obviously a fixable issue but is there anything I can do about the latter?

You have to post more to be able to message users and send links, once you get the “member” trust level you should be good to go, just engage with the community some more

The reply I sent seemingly fixed both issues, as now I have the member level, I think?
Anyway, this is the public submission of my hack for this, in case anyone is interested in trying it. Also my first hack, so it’s not too great, but nonetheless I hope it is somewhat enjoyable.

If there are any problems with the link, the patch, or anything else related to this reply or the hack, please let me know.

I come out of retirement (or something) to offer you guys, once again, the experience of not playing Fire Emblem. Although I guess this time Vesly is joining me on that, the more the merrier.

Today I bring with me a hopefully fresh take on a classic board game.

This hack features...
  • Cute graphics! So cute that I had to post the title screen twice!

  • A Fire Emblem twist on snaking and laddering!

  • Stunning character development! Such a moving plot!

  • And a triangularly advantageous, weapon swapping, tactical board game action twist, for up to three players!

  • Also cool music by Alusq! But that’s hard to provide pictures for!

Credits listed on the readme file.


Did someone say not playing Fire Emblem? Clay no more!


Something strange is going on at Renais Castle! Traps have appeared all over the place, and Ephraim’s explosive personality has caused him to leave in frustration, leaving it up to Eirika to solve this problem. Will she be able to Sweep this mess under the rug, or will this powder keg blow up in her face?


  • Mined-blowing puzzles!
  • Classic, beloved gameplay!
  • Infinite* replayability!
  • 5 boom-bastical audio tracks!

Of these contest submissions, won’t you play Mine?

Trader Raiders is a FE8U submission; apply .ups patch to the appropriate ROM.
It’s a pretty standardish chapter, but I had fun making certain parts of it! If you’ve played Long-Lost Friends, there’s a lot of gameplay stuff that’s carried over from that. However, even if you have, there’s some new items to play with in this chapter!




This is your 24-hour warning. If you’re still working on a submission, please spend your last day wisely. No extensions will be given.
Overall, I’m very happy with the turnout. The full entry count will be revealed when submissions close, but this is shaping up to be a big contest. Thank you to everyone who entered for their time, and good luck to all entrants.


I had alot of fun making this map, as my first experience romhacking. The map has 11 playable units, each with one personal skill. The only enemies that have a skill are the stationary boss on the seize point and the Ranger reinforcement boss

Thanks to all the people who answered my random questions, and the large amount of f2u assets this community provides.


Oh wow, so many more posts since I last checked in.
My chapter is just about ready, but I realized that I’d never made a post so… figured I should do some prep work to make sure I can post links lol
I wish everyone luck and hope I have time to check out some of these awesome looking levels


Closing Act.emulator-4

  • Play as a bunch of peasant rebels in way over their heads
  • Overcome superior foes with status effects, buffs, debuffs and AoEs
  • An excessive variety of weapons and items
  • Everyone comes with canto+/shove for quick smash and grab

All credits in the folder.
Shoutout to Vesly and Retina for helping me with technical issues, and to Bpat, Loog, Kyrads. Roze
and TorT for playtesting to refine the hack.
Roze made several player portraits (for a 1 chapter hack!), absolute legend.

The MARTH submissions are looking absolutely fire, definitely interested in giving them a spin.


Tower Defense (FE8U)

  • Buy units from forts
  • Players only attack on action phase
  • Units continuously attack on the action phase until the wave of enemies is defeated

As a one chapter hack, this is a proof of concept. If anyone’s interested in developing this further (eg. more chapters), message me and we’ll collaborate.



We Are Legion

You play as Legion. Your goal is to defeat Marth.
Whenever any Legion unit attacks, if both units survives, the target becomes Legion while keeping their class, stats and items.
Have fun turning the cast of Archanea into Legion clones!

Download Download and patch to FE8U. From my testing, mGBA sometimes has weird lags, so I recommend using VBA/VBA-M.
