*I’ve already noticed a little glitch that doubled up some dialogue and removed another set. Hopefully the rest of the game functions. I was a little rushed to make it, I only saw this competition a few days ago.

*There were a lot of glitches, I already updated the file to make it a little more playable for anyone wanting to check it out but I’ll be patching this up completely soon.

*File updated to version 1.0, glitch-free. Give it another shot if you played it once already!

This was such a fun excuse to both be a great celebration to one of, if not my favorite game of all time and to really mess around with hacking aspects I haven’t done before! A bit more fancy eventing, some new graphical aspects I messed with, and just nice to work with movement skills when your main hack doesn’t have skill systems.

This absolutely isn’t made to be [for Omori fans] only, but my attempt at capturing its energy in a bit of a distilled fire emblem style.

Project HBR: Lonely River

A one-chapter side story; a short peek into a much larger tale, seen from the eyes of a newly appointed lord hoping to prove that she’s more than what her peers give her credit for.

Features
  • A story-centric chapter with plot and narrative as its first and foremost focus!

  • Recruitment conversations are no longer mutually exclusive! No need to savestate to read every possible recruitment dialogue.

  • An achievement system! The chapter comes prepackaged with 8 possible achievements to alter the way you play the chapter—allowing you to self-impose extra restrictions or objectives to your liking. Achievements are all completely optional, but the ending cutscene will be changed for every achievement that has been obtained.

  • FE4-style Holy Bloods to break game balance in two!

  • BIONICLE music!

  • A few prototype assets made in preparation for a far-future project!

Patch

I played through every publicly available MARTH submission, which might be a tad too much FE in the past two days. Great work to everyone who submitted. (Does this count as patting myself on the back?)

Edited to put everything in spoilers. (Thanks for the heads up, Epicer.)

Some highlights

A few highlights:
manakete and warps-3!

Played manakete and warps with a few pals over discord. The nice art and the weapon triangle twist on the formula made it a good time. I lost both times though, which means the game must be biased and rigged.

The Breakout-6
The Breakout felt like its target audience was specifically me. Prison break, funny units, funny weapons, canto+, vision quest reference, really has everything I wanted.

Where's Fado-5
(Thank you Vesly, I live for this kinda of stuff.)
There was quite a few submissions that really stretched interpretation of FE chapters, such as where’s Fado. Really impressive stuff! I had a lot of fun with them, especially as nice breakups since there’s only so much FE I can consume in a short period.

WeAreLegion-0
I didn’t know what to expect from We are Legion, but a zombie apocalypse simulator was definitely not it! That was a cool surprise.

Trader Raiders-26
As it turns out, no amount of additional quality of life in Trader Raiders will solve skill issue. Took me around 15? attempts to get a deathless clear, but taking advantage of the high number of new player options made each attempt felt like I was doing a little better. Incredibly satisfying to finally pull it off, though it necessitated a rescue use and was very close.

thefunny
At some point, I guess my emulator decided I was here for too long and just said ‘here’s infinite move units.’ Very helpfully, I have no idea how I produced this bug.

Any idea when the judging is going to be completed and posted? (Or if it has, where can I find the results?)

Judging is currently in progress. Currently one judge has completed judging and the others have begun. Results will be released when all judges have completed all projects - there is no time frame for this.

I’ll probably get most of the entries played through in a few weeks at the most, I’ve been getting very little free time recently so the process is a little slower than I’d like.
Hopefully all of you won’t be waiting on me! So far I’ve been liking the hacks!

I have a question, is it against the rules to publicy release a different version that the one submitted to the judges?

The reason I’m asking is because I have kept working on my entry to make it better for the public release, and I want to know if I should hold that until the judging period is over, or is alright to release it to the public whenever I feel is ready?

Just to clarify the submitted version would also be made public, but it will have a disclaimer mentioning it is an version kept for historic porpouses.

Releasing an improved version is fine. You will still be judged based on your original submission.

It’s been a while, but I finally had time to put together a post for my MARTH entry. (I got it in on time, just not out to the public)

So here’s my entry, Tactics of Taming.
