FE13 Announced for NA!

Blazer

Sorry for the late post: I was so hype it didn't occur to me I should even mention it here

Fire Emblem Awakening got a "leaked" announcement, later confirmed by Nintendo of America's twitter account, for a release in North America. Nothing else is really known, but that's good enough news for me: I've been excited out of my mind!

Finally, my Fire Emblem fanaticism has been rewarded! :D

  2. I heard rumours that Treehouse is doing the translation again. They were responsible for FE7-10 so we can look forward to another stellar translation job.

    1. So much hype.

      I believe Treehouse did the Advance Wars: Days of Ruin localization as well, for NA. If you compare the EU and NA scripts, it should give you a good idea of just how GOOD Treehouse is at their work.

  16. I'm assuming you're going to release the patch on the day Awakening comes out, and then we have to decide which is better, this or Awakening. AND THEN WE DIVIDE INTO TWO TEAMS, THE ONES WHO THINK THIS IS BETTER, AND THE ONES WHO THINK AWAKENING IS BETTER. AND THEN WE HAVE A WAR. AND THEN THAT WAR IS FIRE EMBLEM 14! I SUPPORT [X]!
    (History books must document the [X] as the winning team, so that i can predict it)

  19. Nintendo! Shut up and take my money! I am probably buying a 3DS and flash card. The flash card is for when I beat the game. I will download it and hack my ass off. But I AM buying the game just to raise the sales. Next to that, I started playing Shadow Dragon when you guys told us that you were getting pretty close to completion. And I also recently convinced my girlfriend to play Fire Emblem. (Not true story, she started playing because she wanted to troll me so I couldn't play. Then she found out she actually liked it.) Although we both didn't like FE11, we are REALLY looking forward to play FE12's translation. This game is so much more promosing, with WAAAAAAAAY better growths.

  22. Are the old Fire Emblems still worth getting. Im talking bout FE2, FE4 and FE5. How do they compare with FE7 to 10

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. most of the snes ones are pretty good(albeit most of em are VERY hard and have translations.
      they're kinda dated compared to the newer ones in gameplay and graphics(but at the same time,has things that the newer ones don't have,with the exception of fe13,like playing with the children of the characters) but i find them pretty fun still,i mean,it's pretty much more fire emblem,i'm fine with that.

      Delete
    2. FE4 and FE5 are amazing in my opinion. FE4's generation system is really cool and it is a very unique game in the series gameplay wise. FE5 is really difficult, but with capturing, fatigue, and the cool Gaiden chapters, its a great game. I personally find both FE4 and FE5 superior to almost all of FE7-10. Maybe FE9 is close though. Don't get me wrong, I love the GBA games and PoR (not a fan of Radiant Dawn), but I just really like Jugdral.

      FE3 is a decent game, but Shadow Dragon is superior to Book 1. Book 2 is obviously not needed after this finishes.

      FE2 is actually pretty cool, but you have to be ok with grinding and some dated gameplay stuff. I enjoyed it for its unique qualities, though admittedly, I used an easy patch because I didn't want to grind much.

      And FE1..don't play it unless your trying to be hardcore and play every single game. With Shadow Dragon and even FE3 Book 1, theres no point. Its super dated...beating it was more painful than fun.

      Oh and you didn't mention FE6, but if you liked FE7, you should enjoy it too :)

      Delete
    3. Thanks for the info ^-^

      I dont get why you didnt like Radiant dawn though. It was the best in my opinion since it was actually challenging.

      Do you guys know where I can get the translation patches for them

      Delete
    4. try googling "Fire Emblem Translation Patches" lol

      Delete
    5. ^ That would help ;)

      And I didn't like Radiant Dawn for a few reasons. The story was complex but not in a good way, the lack of supports erked me, and the weird availability of units really bugged me (I love Tormod, so that sucked.) However, I never played its hard mode so I can't speak for the difficulty, and I love FE5 for the difficulty so maybe I'll check it out.

      It's still a good game like all of the FE games are, I just prefer most others to it (Except damn FE1 and maybe FE2)

      Delete
    6. I can vouch for Hard Mode being pretty damn difficult. Also that whole thing about being Japanese Maniac in disguise etc. etc. Part 3 and Part 4 Endgame are probably the easiest segments though.
      Part 1, especially chapter 6, is an exercise in patience if you're trying to use units other than Micaiah, Sothe and Volug. Everyone else dies too fast...well, so does Micaiah but she one-shots most things also. I think I had an easier time in Thracia actually thanks to scroll abuse.

      RD is my favourite though, mostly because it's got the most polished gameplay in the series, imo (except Awakening I guess?), and despite the supports being non-existent, the writing is sharp and the conversations are fun to read.

      Delete
    7. radiant dawn is like a ruined cake.
      you can see interesting and cool ideas on the story and gameplay (especially on the skills) and the graphics just got a lot better, but then it all goes downhill with the butcher of the support system,the story being a mess(especially the transitions from radiant dawn to any other actually competent team),non-royal laguz being pretty much terrible(since they almost don't gain xp),too many units that HAS to be deployed,and of course,the aforementioned weird availability.

      Delete
    8. I actually quite enjoy the twists in the story RD and Genealogy of Holy War (FE4), especially the tragedy of FE4 is quite emotional.

      One last question, how do I make it work on no$gba? I booted up the game and all I see is some kanji on the lower screen (I'm assuming it's some kind of error message).

      Delete
    3. 1. Options -> Emulation Setup -> NDS-cartridge Backup Media -> Flash 512Kbytes
      2. Options -> Save Options
      3. Reset rom

      This should be enough.

      Delete
    4. OMG MY EARS!!! There's some kind of horrible static!

      Anyways, that seems to have worked so thank you very much. :D

      Delete
    5. Don't worry, only two tracks in the game (opening and ending) suffer from that.

      That only happens no No$, though. If your PC can handle Desmume, you should consider using it.

      Delete
    6. Okay, thanks.

      But now I'm not getting any sound effects (like selecting a unit, moving the cursor, etc...)

      Man, this would be so much simpler if my Laptop could handle desume... :(

      Delete
    7. Those two sound glitches might be the greatest issues No$ has emulating this game, though (other than savestates, if you're into using them).

  25. Found a "first 77 minute" playthrough of awakening on YT.

    1. Go to the "downloads" link at the top. only the first link is specific to FE11/FE12: the other programs are... other programs I use to hack FE11/FE12. The main ones, anyhow, I use some others but they won't be of much to use, I don't think.

      After that, do googling, gbatemp.net, and experimenting. Likely, it won't be easy. :\

  34. __Okay, I had this idea and also "this" understanding as a User of Computer -Don't know how script goes, but know it controls every aspect of a computer- for a program to translate games.

    __The Understanding__
    You know how programmers & hackers say its not that easy to translate a game. I realize this while trying to edit games...I want to implement my ideas of certain games.
    I've open up a couple games -Not calling myself a Programmer- with programs and notice a picture -Character Map- with the alphabet, symbols, numbers & others. I started doing this after getting bored with "hacking" games.

    I've also used Cheat Engine -A Memory Hacking Tool- while cheating to Pokemon and my method of hacking the Item Type was by finding the Item Amount or by rearranging Item Types in the slots. At one point I by accidently found -Changed characters- the hexadecimal that controlled the Item Name.

    I realized after remembering what certain people refer to as a Texture Map or Character Map. Why games are so hard to translate.
    Because what we see in the game are Words of Writing & Language, what is programmed are not sentences or pictures of full words, but Characters which equal a Hexadecimal and then programmed what, where & when to show up. And the Hexadecimal is made not just for the upper case, but for lower cases, the numbers, symbols, punctuation marks & even spaces.

    __The Example__
    Hexadecimals [Below]
    00 01 02 03 04 0A 0B 0C 0D 0E
    A B C D E F G H I _
    Characters [Above]

    BAD_DEED
    BAD = 103, _ = E & FEED = A443
    00B3 4012 = 1
    00B3 4013 = 0
    00B3 4014 = 3
    00B3 4015 = E
    00B3 4016 = A
    00B3 4017 = 4
    00B3 4018 = 4
    00B3 4019 = 3

    In order to translate you need the Hexadecimal in its Characters in its formal word.

    __The Idea__
    So the idea was to make a program that takes the User -of the program- would input a guild line of what equals what then the output would give out the characters and all the User -of the program- would have to do is copy and the words into google translate.
    After you just copy and paste the words into the program and then input the guild line for what equals what when inputting -the words would turn to hexadecimals and all the User of the program would have to is put the hexadecimals into the script.
    Oh and this is just version 1, I have ideas for version 2;Features such as Remember where I copied from bookmarks, Add Tab of Separation, built-in Online Google Translate App or Translator.

    __The Layout__
    Function
    - Boxes; Click on and type into

    2 Boxes in each Tab
    - Top for what characters look like in Hex
    - Bottom for words in sentence (What Hex looks like in character)

    Tabs
    - From Game (Green Background & Tab), To Translation (Red Background & Tab), Tab of Separation (In case you want in or output needs to be put back in at different place)

    Buttons
    - Near Top Box called Output to Translation (Shows words in bottom) & Hex = Char (what Hexadecimals = Characters)
    - Near Bottom called Input to Game (Shows hex in top)

    Menu
    - File > Save, Save As, New, Open & History
    - Bookmarks > Listed with image preview [Save screen show & script line]
    - About > Credits and etc

    __My Wish...Though a Joke__
    I can't program cause I'm not a programmer so I sometimes wish there was a least 1 or a team programmer who would listen me & make programs (In every User's dream) though I think some are worthy.
    But hey certain may need to be added as from a Programmer's knowledge

  35. You say that you will use the English names from FE11 to maintain consistency. But will you base them on the American or European version of the game? Eight of the names are different between the two versions (as seen on this page: http://www.serenesforest.net/fe11/name.html)
    I personally prefer the European names, as those are the ones that seem to me most common. (they are for example the ones used on the FE-wiki and on Serenesforrest's list of characters for the FE11)
    The European version also translates Larabel (the japanese name of the shopkeeper in all fire emblem games) to Aimee, like the rest of the series does, and who dosen't like recurring characters?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. We're using the American names.

    2. I agree with Vetle, why not? Shiida sounds/looks better than Caeda, and Medon sounds/looks better than Macedon (it sounds like Macedonia godammit). Also Akaneia>>>Archanea.

      Too late to change that now, I guess.

      Delete
    3. Well, I kind of expected you to use the American ones. It's really no big deal anyway, I'm just glad I'll get the game in English at all.

  36. Have you guys considered just releasing a V1 now and a V2 with all the perfection in place later? I'm sure most of us would be satisfied with the story translation as it is at the moment.

    3. I'm just as hyped if not more for this translation and FE:13. The hype is tearing me apart. Though it is like saying, "Yeah, I'll take the game, even if it is buggy as hell and doesn't function right... I just want the story." I rather have the final product that will live up to the hype and not disappoint than me being stuck with a half-assed/incomplete version that leaves me hanging and not enjoying the maximum output/potential. Of course the game might not be buggy in this case but, I think you get the idea I'm going for.
