What exactly is the point of saying "First" if you are anonymous?
anonymous or not its still sad
Maybe it makes them feel good about themselves or something? loljk jk
it is better that people care about being first than not caring at allit shows how much people love you
haha so many comments and no one saidSECOND
SO MUCH HYPE.
I'M SO EXCITED!
I'M SO.... MUCH HYPE!!!!
ALL CAPS NOVEMBER!!!
OH MY GAAAWD
one person is still working on itfinish quickeryour units purpose is to die in your service
But the remaining tester is playing a casual mode run...
You're pissed as much as I am aren't you?
And when will the last one finish his run ? :D
A casual mode run seriously? I really hope something has stopped that person from doing anything lately because there is no excuse otherwise.
Collage? Pretty sure that is a legit excuse.
People complaining about the last person piss me off.
If I cared enough to get pissed off, people complaining about the last person would also piss me off >:(
I wonder why
Well in hindsight I feel like an ass... I really should have phrased that better and more like not being an ass.... Also Collage? really Anon that is not how you spell it.
Sure it is, he was held up making Collages of sprites!
Don't be, the last person is an incredibly lazy asshole who's barely contributed anything to the project.Sincerely,That Person
Ahhhh!! So excited! Can't wait to play!
thanks for all your hard work on the translation, it is VERY much appreciated.
Is Agro that last guy? Cause he said he'd be done today.
Nope. Agro is one of the six.
I'M FLIPPING. AHHHHH!!!!!!!!
HYPE!!! SO EXCITED, CANT W8 2 PLAY THE GAME IN ENGRISH!!!1!!11!!!
I was hopping this would come out before the Wii U!
"this would come out before the Wii U" is a strange adverb to place after "hopping". ...Why are you hopping?
Because it's a secret Easter bunny rabbit conspiracy theory.
So what is taking Vincent so long?
He's waiting for the last tester.
aw,and i was all ready to capslock vincent's name over and over,thought it was him that was still playing it
Vincent is one of the most diligent members of this project, fool
He's also the reason you're getting a patch at all, so you know, you should offend him or something...
*shouldn'tgoddammit autocorrect stop taking away my wit
yup, if he didn't exist I don't think I've had met TheEnd or Agro and then this translation would have no translators and well that's a bad thing ^_^ [s]not to mention he got NTG to go ham on the graphics[/s]
I eagerly await this patch!! :D
i cant wait!!!!!!
I was hoping to have it before thanksgiving break, but I guess if it's out around the second half I'll still have a decent chance to start playing it before it's back to class. Just hoping that last person finishes up sometime in the next day or so.
I just hope he finished today...
YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!OhMyGodOhMyGodOhMyGodOhMyGodOhMyGod!~(^-^)~ ~(^o^)~ ~(^-^)~ ~(^o^)~
I like boobies and Fire emblem. :3
...me too... are we brothers?
I suggest playing FE13, then
i'm getting ready to harem run that freaking game.....*drools*
LOLOLOL TheEnd utroll
WTF? FE 13 artworks looks the worst of all.No significant boobies at all.....it may attract lolicons though.
...are we gonna have a nono discussion?please say no
Hey, don't rush him you guys. If they want to do a casual run, let them do a casual run. Thanks again for all the hard work you guys! Can't wait to see the completed patch. Something to look forward to this Thanksgiving break. :)
By casual run, I believe they mean a run on the casual game setting in which your characters who "die" come back at the end of each chapter.Not having played the game, I can see this taking a while if there's a lot of text involved in them coming back, or if he has to kill them all off each chapter or something. But that's just speculation, it's not like I actually know. I still want him to hurry up.
I sence another troll coming up...
Fucking casuals, man.
I've been wearing out my F5 over here. Can't wait!
Don'tCome back in a week, instead
Y-you boku wa kisama tachi...!
DESU DESU DESU DESU DESU DESU DESU DESU DESU DESU DESU DESU DESU DESU DESU DESU DESU DESU DESU DESU DESU DESU DESU DESU DESU DESU DESU DESU DESU DESU DESU DESU DESU DESU DESU DESU DESU DESU DESU DESU DESU DESU DESU DESU DESU DESU DESU DESU DESU DESU DESU DESU DESU DESU DESU DESU DESU DESU DESU DESU DESU DESU DESU DESU DESU DESU DESU DESU DESU DESU DESU DESU DESU DESU DESU DESU DESU DESU DESU DESU DESU DESU DESU DESU DESU DESU DESU DESU DESU DESU DESU DESU DESU DESU DESU DESU DESU DESU DESU DESU That enough "Desu" for you?

I hope you found all the bugs thanks guys
I think we found most of'm if not all of'mfixing them is something else...
Step it up senpais, I really want to play it.
Thanks for the update. See you guys next week.
Did the last guy finished yet at least ?
I'll update the post when he does.
That's THE question !
He probably did but they are keeping it a secret and release the patch in a couple days and make everybody climax at the same time. It will be a world wide circle jerk!
Thaaaaaaanksssssssssss guiiiiiiiiiiiseeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee for all the work you've been doing!can i has patch nao pls?
Seem like the wait have to take longer. Goodjob! The Heroes of the Shadow.
>"I'll definitely finish up this weekend" HYPE
SO MUCH HYPE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
oh my gaaawD!!!!!!!
Tell me WHENNNN!?!?!?
hey! i have a quick question.is it gonna be able to run on a flashcart suck as the r4?
We have tested it on a few flashcarts. If it runs the Japanese rom, it should run the patch too.But even if you're out of luck, there's always No$GBA (which can run this game just fine on a 7-years-old PC).
I personally use Desmume it's far more reliable for DS these days due to the fact (as far as I know) that No$GBA hasn't updated in years and well frankly either way DeSmuMe is just better.
R4? Get a DSTWO you pleb
Desmume is obviously more reliable - if your PC can take it. I know, that shouldn't be an issue in 2012, but you'd be surprised.
i have problems with desmume on the majority of games but mainly with sounds some games have unplayable fps (8 and below). overall i can get most of the games i want on it, but if i can play the game on no$ i will since it is a much less intensive program, and i can listen to music when i don't want to listen to the game.
I've got Desmume and it has a tendancy to crash a LOT on my computer. I'm not sure if this is normal.
desmume is superior to no$gba by a milemake sure you're getting the newest version etcetc basic stuff,the newer ones are much better.no$gba is lighter thoughnow sound problems on desmume? that's new
How do I stop desmume from laggimg?
i get lag on quite a few games on desmume but one thing that can help is bring up task manager and put priority to high so it will take over the processes that dont do anything important and take the cpu power to its maximum ability
if you're running windows, turn off unnecessary crap and things like Windows Aero which take up processing power. I think flashcarts are generally the most enjoyable way to play but Desmume should always emulate things fine; no$GBA isn't as great of an emulator in terms of quality, but it's simple enough that it should suffice (at least from what I've heard... I've also heard it has sound issues and crap). I'd definitely try to get Desmume running though, it's not THAT intensive of a program... my computer isn't that great and I could have the game opened and running while hacking, soooo :|
Still, if your computer is having trouble with Windows Aero in this era, that's kind of sad :\ Or your machine is just old so. Honestly, one of the main reasons I prefer Desmume is because I can zoom in. Goddamit the ds screen is way too small for a computer.
I'm using Desmume because, unlike No$GBA, it has a built-in AVI recorder. But often when I'm playing, the whole screen black out for a few seconds, and I get a message saying "Nvidea windows device driver has stopped responding and was succesfully recovered". At best, I can resume the game after that. At worst, my whole laptop crashes.
I use No$GBA + No$Zoomer, which is much better than vanilla No$GBA. It's enough to run most DS games just fine. The only problem I've encountered using it for FE is the title screen music is choppy.
Klingy, that isn't a Desmume issue - it's a Nvidia driver problem. I remember downgrading my driver to get rid of that. You should look into it.
I had a sound and lag issue while playing Shadow Dragon but on desmume there is a way to change certain settings to get rid of that.
I can hardly wait :(
it's the weekend already :(and there's still like a week for the patch to go live aaaafffteeerdamn casuals
Okay, funny story to share. I was just playing the DLC "Assassins" mission, you know, to tide myself over and...Kleine died to a 4% Crit from a BanditEremiya got a 6% Crit with NosferatuGharnef got an 8% Crit with ImhulluAnd Athena, who had 36% Crit with her Wo Dao... NEVER GOT A SINGLE CRITICAL THE ENTIRE MAP!!!WTF.
Wait, just remembered: A Roro clone died to a fluke crit from a Mage too.
LOLyou're a funny guy[s]did you hack the RNG or something?[/s]
Nope. I tend to have pretty strange luck with FEs in general. Boy this is going to be fun wheen I actually start recording my LP... (I'm really annoyed I wasn't recording this run, to be honest.)And believe me, I was literally throwing Athena into battle after battle trying to get a crit. There were times when she doubled with the Wo Dao and still didn't crit on either!On another note, this was the first time I've seen its ending, and it looks interesting. Katarina meets an orphan girl who is also named Katarina, and Kleine seems to talk about her backstory. Can't wait to see it in English.
THIS JUST IN:I now have undeniable proof the RNG hates me today:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g5WywvU1wXUJust watch.
Uh, maybe I missed something, but you took an unlucky crit that killed your full-health unit?Because that's like, "Magical Fire Emblem Moments 101".
This happening right after that series of weird crits I mentioned above was the last straw.
It's almost Done!...Is the party planed?
I'm so excited. :)
Is that anime girl wearing a shirt?
who is she?
An anime girl.
Knowing TheEnd, she's from a Falcom game, not an anime. I don't know WHICH, but I'm pretty sure it's one of them.
Actually no, that isn't from a Falcom game
Really? Surprising. So what IS it from then?
The closset thing i found had cat ears! Damn it japan!
my birthday is on the 30th and i think this will be a great gift! thanks!
I was just curious with the final chapter of DLC for Awakening being announced, and upon seeing how hard it will be what kind of reward do you think will be given upon completing it. Based upon it being the final part of the Ultimate Training chapters it will most likely be a Spirit Talisman. My question is who could it be? I have heard some people saying it is going to be the default male My Unit from New Mystery of the Emblem, but I don't think this is going to be true. It would defeat the whole purpose of My Unit in the first place, this being an avatar for the player in the game that can be customized to one's own tastes. I believe for all the hell that one will have to go through to beat this episode, the reward better be something better than Chris. I think that for the difficulty of the episode and it being the final DLC to be released, I believe that the character which will be obtained maybe none other than Link himself.
What do you mean by this TheEnd?
That guy already posted the same comment on an earlier post. But personally, your reward had better be damn good, just looking at those stats makes me lose bladder control. Then again, this is literally THE hardest thing in the game, and probably the last challenge most players will beat. Meaning any reward would fall into simply bragging rights territory.
That means that hopefully for next week's weekend we could have the patch in our hands!Great job you guys! And ma'ams also XD
Next week's weekend is far too long for what is left to do...Hopefully tomorrow or monday the patch is already up...or we will actually end up reaching the 27/11 date on more than a month to finish the game for a test run...
Huh, 27/11 would be exactly one month after we started the beta test.
They said they'd finish within 1-5 days of the end of the beta test. Assuming the beta test is finished by Monday, we'll get it by Saturday at the latest. I can live with that.
Yeah, and most probably I could not manage to get the game patched until weekend due to work, home, etc.Who I want to fool? I'd drop everything the minute the patch comes out and I'll burn my DS playing this game XDDD
ERMAGERSH FER EMBLERM!!!Why yes, I am just that pumped!!! WOOHOO!! What a wonderful Thanksgiving surprise this will be. I can just picture flopping in front of my comp after eating a huge meal with family and playing through FE 12 in glorious English.WIN.
Did the last person finish?
I was looking through my old games today (because I was bored and procrastinating doing coursework (which is now finished, so don't yell at me!)) and I found one of my first FE7 games (the one with Eliwood and Lyn)...I was amazed at how tough some of my characters were. I had managed to make a team of five units that could solo the final level (except the Dragon, of course);I had a level 20 Swordmaster Guy, who had 50% Crit with a normal blade, and a 75% crit with a Wo Dao or a Killing Edge, who hit everything and got hit maybe one time in three.A level 20 Assassin Matthew who had a 40% crit rate with a 60% with WD/KE who got hit maybe one time six. A level 20 berserker Dart with 40% crit rate, 50+ health and defence high enough so that silver swords did 10 damage to him (and they never attacked twice without Brave Sword). A level 20 Troubadour Priscilla who dodged four attacks in five and always double attacked with every magic I gave her.A level 20 Paladin Lowen who was tougher than Marcus was at the beginning of the Eliwood story. And that's not even mentioning the Lords that I *had* to take into the levels (I pay special attention to my lords, because a weak lord is a liability). I have no idea how they got so tough, but then, I'm not about to complain either. XD
You guys are awesome, not only for doing this giant project. Your attitude towards us, the fans waiting for it, and your management of the blog is superb. We are very proud and grateful of your work, you are a magnificent team.
I think Swordmasters ( and Assassins as well ) became pretty bad after the nerfs on their criticas bonus on promotion and on Killing Edge on FE8 and forward. Don't know about FE13.I remember the awesomeness of Guy, Matthew, Jaffar, Rutger and Fir critting forever. It's not like there weren't units could do more and combat better if wasn't for their crits.
Swordmasters were at their flat-out worst in Shadow Dragon. I swear whoever changed their class bonus from crit to HIT was a troll. Seriously, that's just awful. Added to the face concrete defence mattered more than evasion in that game due to the new formula, and SMs kinda sucked.This game improved them greatly, however, by simple virtue of changing the hit bonus to Dodge instead. Not only that, but Speed matters now, much more than it did in SD. Generals are actually really bad on the higher difficulties, because despite their high Def, being doubled by everything actually makes them LESS durable than lower def units with higher speed! In short, SMs are a lot better here, and I'm pretty sure they are in Awakening too.
They removed crit bonus for Hit and Dodge ? Wtf...Didn't used one on my only SD run...I believe their high crit was the only reason people ever deployed them. Because other then that they are locked onto swords and are extremely weapon dependent ( Armorslayers, Longswords, forges, etc ) than any other class.
Swordmasters were my favorite class, was loved the feel this gus had. Until the nerfs started rolling in...They can still have their ubber crit back but with a lot more work. On FE8 they reduced their ratios, but on PoR and RD i remember having 100% crit chance with Zihark against some enemies with Gamble skill + Killing Edge...which sadly reduced his chance to hit to 50% to 60%, and you are gonna rage with the misses...On Shadow Dragon Killing Edges and even the Wo Dao can be forged, Wo Dao up to a critical rate of 50% by itself! But i think it's a shitload of money...So now you have to go through a lot of work and trouble just to do what was the class diferential in the game...
The Swordmaster's real talent lies in his instant C in swords and gigantic speed base.
The Swordmaster's stat caps for STR and SPD are also really good. 24 STR and 30 SPD means you'll be doubling for a lot of damage.
SMs are amazing in this game simply because they're the only class (besides maybe Zerker) that consistently double in the Loony modes. Their high base sword rank is also pretty badass, as it somewhat compensates for their decent-ish STR and allows the ladies to equip the Lady Sword and easily bumps peeps like Sirius and Myrm/Merc Luke to A Swords.
What was the updated status about? The progress tab hasn't changed and nothing else was added. The only thing that it could be about was 1 more person said they finished. Was that it or was I expecting more...
the updated status is,calm downit's the start of the weekend still
"I'm still working on it" changed to "I'll definitely finish up this weekend" for that one person. That's the only update, but we should be thankfull for little stuff like this.
Soon friends! Soon!
What patch type will it be (IPS, UPS ect)?
IPS don't work for this big files. XDelta is best with DS ROMs.
It's most likely going to be UPS format.
Trip report time!Go download the patch version currently available on this very website, and take a look at what type of patch it is. Then write a 500 word essay on why certain file types are better than others when creating patches.
Quick Question? Will the patch make the rom a larger file size? i dont see why it would but i have the old patch and my r4 is well.. full, i have 3 games lying in wait so i want to plan. anyway, thanks for all of your hard work.
Actually, it makes the rom smaller. 84MB or so.
Probably due to only needing 26 letters and 10 digits as opposed to 1000+ kanji.
DS roms pad things out with junk data to make it fit into the size of the kart it's in exactly. 64MB, 128MB, 256MB, blahblahblah.These files can be trimmed to just the files used in the actual rom, but most patches do it as part of the patching process. This The 84MB trim was probably off of a 256MB cart, the game itself only taking a little bit above 128MB.THE MORE YOU KNOW.
No, no, the game gets trimmed down to 84 MB from 128 MB.
Will we be able to apply the patch to the menu patched rom or just the RAW rom?
I suggest using a raw rom.
I kept my Raw Rom just for that I tested it with the menu patch to be safe but it always pays to have a spare.
buenas noche ;)
Any particularly amusing bugs or glitches found during beta testing?
Are we there yet? :D
The last person's done. All that remains is waiting on the final tweaks. So that's basically dependent on how much free time Vincent happens to have right now. Keep him happy folks; you don't want the project delayed because some people had too much hype flowing out of their orifices. (Get your minds out of the gutter, GOD)
ALL OF THE HYPE GUYS.But seriously, thanks a lot for the patch. I've been lurking here from time to time and I wish you guys all the best for bringing us this game.Also, I must say some people in this project are blessed with fine taste. Not only are you FE fans, but you also love Falcom, the best company there ever was (TM). My respect to thee, sirs. And hey, if XSEED ever bails from doing SC, come and save us (what's a 600 page script right! lolol).Cheers!
Yeah, if they like Falcom and FE they must be pretty good people. You know we are counting on you to step up from the shadows and deliver, in case the official means fail us, right? Just like Batm- uhh, heroes... heroes of shadow. Seriously though, thank you HoS team, for all the hard work.
did you find other bugs in the downloadable chapters or the bs ones?
HoS TEAM, I demand you to stop reading the comments and get to the final tweaking! Have my endless stream of thank you for your hard work.
Vincent is the one doing that, and you aren't seeing him posting here.
because....he has the patch all done and is laughing at us right...nowso evil
It's possible, he's such a tease
It's the final countdown! 5 days at most! But I secretly expect it to be done tomorrow.
So am I :3
Why secretly expect it to be done tomorrow when you can expect it for today? :D
This is golden
I know you guys are the last people who need reminding of this, but it might be good for other people to realize that the team only gets ONE chance at a first release.I'm sure bugs were found during the beta period, and I hope that all this hype doesn't stop you (Vincent) from taking your time and doing your best at solving these bugs. You guys really have displayed a professional attitude all throughout this development and I would hope that it'd extend to your released product, regardless how much more time it takes.That being said, the fact that seven people with wide-ranging playstyles were able to play the game from start-to-finish bodes really well. SO EXCITE.
Well it looks like things are going well and I have to agree make sure everything you found is completely fixed before you release although I expect that from this awesome team.
Hey, HoS team? I just wanted to tell you you're all awesome, and thanks for all your hard work.
Thank you for all your hard work. I'll be waiting for the final patch.
You guys is straight ballas.Real love.
Just a few more days and I AM READY!!!!!!! Thanks for all the hard work guys.
It's the final countdown!
At my Thanksgiving dinner with all of my family, im gonna stand up and stay, "I would like to give thanks to the Heroes of Shadow translation team..." and name all of you guys off by name.
EXCITING~ love you guys and your hard work
You know I really want to know who that last person was to thank him for finishing as quickly as he did. He could've taken much longer but he quickly worked through. Now onto business once this comes out I will be busy for quite a while.
i'm pretty sure they know we're all thankful,no need to be all srs business and/or smug about it brojust F5 and hope vincent decides to upload the patch :3
is it bad that I had to press f5 to see what it did
So I have a Question for TheEnd. Did you guys find any major bugs and also did you patch them before you finished the run?ok... that was 2 questions.
That's a yes to both of those questions.
My body is ready.
Im in no big rush is i got kakusei and love it! The english version is going to be great! but even better that all the dlc is being released for the english version. So only thing left to say is hut up and take my money DLC
yo guys,read this wall of hate while you're waiting:http://serenesforest.net/forums/index.php?showtopic=27311it's basically this guy ranting about fe7's absurd plot.i couldn't stop reading after i started
That was absolutely amazing. Phenomenal.
I usually try not to think too much about the scenario because I fear of finding plot hole and stop enjoying the game. But god that is a lot of plot holes. Makes me wonder if I should have played this game untranslated :P
Beta testing is finished??? Great news for an otherwise horrible Monday!!
AYYYYIIIEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!EVERYBODY IS FINISHED!!!!!!!!hehehehehehehehehe
FINAAAAAAAAAAAALYYYYYYYYYY !! XD 5 days from now hehe
Great news ! Thank you so much for the work.
