Beta testing progress

TheEnd

No trolling this time around, as I've already posted my farewells; however, I figured a weekly update would be just fair. Besides, the previous post already has way too many replies.

The current scoreboard is roughly like this:

"I've finished my run" - 2 people
"I'll finish until Monday" - 2 people
"I'm still halfway through" - 2 people 3 people
"I just started and I keep running into game-breaking glitches what is this" - 1 person nobody

Names withheld to protect the innocent.

No, we don't have any news about the release date; it still should be out this month. Have a good day.

UPDATE: "I'm at like chapter 13, (...) and the glitches were probably a result of cheat codes so :|"

  8. Why is Blazer so hated? :(

    1. He's not, Blazer is loved by pretty much everyone in the community. Then again I can probably say that for every member of the team after all the hard work and effort they are putting in. Blazer is just very busy and quite possibly is running into a ton of bugs for some reason, that's [s]probably[/s] not his fault and doesn't mean people dislike him :P.

      Delete
    2. Blazer used to do everything then quit for his real life so we troll him/her/it about it out of love.

      Delete
  9. keep up the awesome work guys im sure everyone is excited as me to play the finished project

    ReplyDelete
  10. Is Blazer unfortunately running into an army of bugs... or are they just intentionally targeting him for quitting early.

    ReplyDelete
  11. So, Blazer just doesn't give a shit about the beta or is he really running into a lot of bugs nobody else got?

    1. What is wrong with you?

    2. What do you mean?

      Delete
    3. ... you know I was going to say "you're wrong, I DO give a shit about the beta" but giving shits isn't really a positive thing when you think about

      but in all seriousness I'm up to chapter 13 and I'll have finished today so I can start my next playthrough by tomorrow probably

  14. hey TheEnd, what's your favorite FE and how do you think FE12 compares to it, gameplay and plot wise?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. FE4 is my personal favorite, FE12 would be my 2nd or 3rd. (I haven't played Awakening, though.)

      Since FE4 is very different from the rest of the series, it isn't easy to compare them.

  15. I'm guessing I can't be apart of the beta testing? D:

  16. So no cheat codes, got it.

  17. >Sees expected release of this patch.

  19. Are you going to have to test ALL the support convos? Becayse if you are, do yourself a favor and use the Bond Drop, for the sake of your sanity.

    1. bond drop + no item decrease cheat code = win

  20. Hey! I'm so excited for this patch!
    Reading through some of the comments made me feel kind of bad though... You guys are devoting a huge portion of your time to this project for the benefit of all of us. I dunno... I just thought people would be a bit more grateful, but that's how the internet is, I guess.
    Good luck on your testing!
    SO EXCITED FOR THE PATCH! :D

    1. Waifus in 12 are Catria, Norne and Katarina

      Delete
    2. Okay, I did Catria's A in my first playthrough with a male MU, and I don't remember any romantic implications at all. She basically just talks about her unrequited love for Marth. I could be wrong though, it was about 2 years ago.

      Delete
    3. It's very slight
      "I'm okay now, thanks to you"

      Delete
    4. Katarina's the obvious one. And Norne is like that with FeMU too.

      Delete
  23. I finished my run... since I cannot edit blog posts, I'll just do it through a comment.

    "The current scoreboard is roughly like this:

    "I've finished my run" - 3 people
    "I'll finish by Monday" - 1 person
    "I'm still halfway through" - 3 people
    "I just started and I keep running into game-breaking glitches what is this" - nobody"

    Now time to let you guys tweak the little Engrish there was and then a full *finialized* version should be out in the near future.

      You should probably put that away for now. Wait until it's out; then whip it back out.

    4. Uh, I think you're using that phrase wrong, Anon 3. He actually IS referring to Anon 2's dick.

  24. Okay...so I am a few chapters away from beating Thracia 776. Having played 1-4 and 6-11, I am almost caught up. I am working on completing Thracia so I can get started on FE12 and then onwards to FE13. Just so you know, with this translation patch, you are making this fan very very happy. Thank you, all of you. Sincerely.

    1. Thracia was my least favorite IMO. Story was scarce, characters were underdeveloped and cheap mechanics and fake difficulty make too many strategies depend purely on luck. It's pretty much impossible to beat it without a death (unless using save states).

      Delete
    2. It's no wonder

      Remember Leaf loses his entire army in FE4, after all

      Delete
    3. Thracia is Thracia. If you do your homework a little, you can maximize your efficiency. There are a lot of great resources out there to make your non-save state play through work with no casualties. Or just play on Elite Mode and stomp the game. There are plenty of dudes on your team that can own pretty much any situation once buffed with Elite.

      Plus I thought that Fatigue was an interesting twist on the series. But even that can be thwarted with S items. As for the rewarping Dark Mages, they can go fall in a well.

      I managed to recruit Xavier, but was 2 armors shy of getting the member card. So, I came out of that notorious part unscathed. Onwards to Chapter 19!!!

      But again, I am not a language snob, but as someone who has very little free time, I don't want to spend it staring at characters I can't read. I would like to enjoy the games in my native language of English to get the full effect. So with you guys translating 12 and NOA/NOE translating FE13, I am all set!!
