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.
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!
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?
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.
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?
Classic, beloved gameplay!
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
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
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.
