Heroes of Shadow Revival

Aveyn Knight

Hi folks, I have two things to share:

1) The new Heroes of Shadow are coming to an internet near you.

2) I've added a new tab onto the website.

3) 1 and 2 are related.

It's still early stages, so I'll keep you posted with new info as things progress.

  2. Have you guys thought of translating some of the older games? I don't think FE 4 or 5 ever got a complete translation...

    ReplyDelete

    1. I can't speak for the team, but FE4's patch is all but complete and is just missing some of the ending, which I've heard is a pain to code.

      Personally I'd like to work on FE5, but barring some odd memes, that game's translation is pretty solid too.

      The only issue is the lack of menus, which again I wouldn't want to touch (and actually I did make my own menu translation years ago for a side project, so I know how annoying it is).

    2. (Soledai from SF) Wait...? FE5's translation had memes? Wow, I had no clue, and like, what are they?
      ...Also, if you were to work on FE5 for whatever reason, I think I would join you with that even though I'm talent-less (If you'd have me)

  3. Yay, this is the moment I've been checking in on here daily for, a whole new chance to pick on Blazer for an indefinite period of time :D

    1. lolwut? pick on me?

      you can do that whenever you like :P

  4. Yes! Checking back every day after release was SO worth it! Thanks guys, you're awesome!
    By the way, I had a question for you, Aveyn. Serenes Forest doesn't have a Game Script for FE12 yet (the text is there on the game's index, but just black, not a link), but you guys already have a script, right? Forgive me if I'm wrong, but... doesn't that make it a little bit easy to add?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. not really. the script we use for hacking and a practical script are formatted pretty differently. For one, the "hacking-script" is riddled with lots of different codes and... jargon, I suppose. It's true that it's easy in that the text is there, but it'll still take a lot of time for it to be converted/formatted, implemented, etc., and Vincent's a busy guy, sadly :(

  5. Do you guys need an editor for the awakening official comic?

    1. if someone's professional... why not? :P we can handle ourselves otherwise though

    3. i think you need to edit your editing actually

      holy shit

    4. Um, I can't speak for Pandorakun, but that second one has some pretty glaring errors in it...

      Delete
    5. Oh, sorry that one is really old...

  6. 8DD

    I know Awakening finally localized some of the FE12 characters' names. Will your translation reflect that in an update?

    ReplyDelete
  7. Have you thought of bringing out a patch for FE12 with European names? And now that there are some more official names known (Legion).

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Former, no: this is an N.A. localization, we don't have the time, resources, motivation, etc. to make multiple patches, sorry.

      Latter, i.e. updating the names in the game because of new name localizations from FE13, we've thought about it, but we won't be able to do it for a while due to various reasons (time, no one around, not all the names are out, etc.), but maybe several months from now once all the DLC is out and once everyone gets settled down (maybe in the Summer) there might be some work on it. No guarantees.

      Delete
    2. I do hope the names eventually get changed. It would be awesome, if you guys ever find the time. :)

      Delete
  8. Have you thought about translating other games? There are some needing pro hackers.
    A brilliant Summon Night X as an example. A lot of the translation is complete but since the main hacker abandoned the project they stuck at 0.001 patch with nothing but the menu translated.
    Check it here: http://gbatemp.net/threads/summon-night-x-tears-crown-translation.301158/page-11
    I check it everyday sob sob sob~ (just like your site)
    You can find the translation docs at the bottom in case you're interested.

    1. I'll take a look at it, thanks for the heads-up. I don't think anyone here really has any time to add anything to their plates though, sadly. :(

    2. lol I didn't even understand the first comment but okay

      (I'm not as bright as people suggest :P)

  10. I'm bored and I miss Blazer.

    Do you have anything small to update us on? :D

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. lol hi

      see a few comments above someone mentioned the Summon Night X Translation?

      well, if you look at some of the last few posts, you might find something interesting (look at who posted there and what he is doing there :P)

      regarding this, there is nothing, sadly, work on the new content Vincent poked at seems to be on a general hiatus from the translator's side, and we don't plan on updating the FE12 names anytime soon, sadly

  11. I heard these guys need help if you're interested-

  12. Are you going to be releasing the text editor you used?

    ReplyDelete
  13. Yes, I am also interested in the text editor. Is ninetenlord going to be releasing the editor?

    ReplyDelete
  14. I know that this is not related to fire emblem, but if any of you are interested, Skyblade is working on an translation patch for final fantasy type-0, if any of you guys are interested, you could help translating the patch.

    1. I'll look into it, but no promises or anything.

  15. Funny, I thought I was on Heroes of Shadow, not "tinypic TM THIS IMAGE OR VIDEO HAS BEEN MOVED OR DELETED". Weird.

    1. lol maybe I'll ask Vincent to do something about it

      though probably there's not much to do XP

  17. So, concerning the revival... Is that still happening? I hope it's still happening.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Are you guys going to update the patch with the english names released in FE13?

    ReplyDelete
  19. Aight, i have a question. My Ds hinge broke (again) so i am upgrading to a 3ds. I have decided that rather than get a an r4 for 3ds, i will get carts of the games. Here is the question: I am correct that there is still no way to apply this patch to a Japanese cart of this game right? I will be sad that i can no longer play this game but as games are ROM bases, i assume there is no way to patch a legit cart

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. yes if not impossible, VERY difficult. Why would you bother doing that anyway lol. If you wanna support the franchise go ahead and buy a legit copy, doesn't mean you have to discontinue using a flashcart to play :) (own all fe titles since gba).

      Delete
    2. While it is true i could do that, i wouldn't be able to understand it. Could be worse, i can still play but yeah

      Delete
    3. Also, forgot to say this, but 3ds flashcarts work differently from what i can tell and conflict with the 3ds updatinig thing ( i could be very wrong but that was my understanding) my ds lite is unusable. I could play on pc emulators i guess, there would be massive lag but better than nothin

      Delete
  20. Fire Emblem Proscription,Opposition,Regeneration,Purification, Invasion but in english they are for Java but the author is russian so
    well maybe you know where I could get them in english tell me they are games for mobile.

  21. Something tells me this project is dead, dead, dead...

    1. Well, it's finished, so I wouldn't say DEAD, but... yeah, seems that way. Blazer's been on at least once this month though!

    2. But-but-but... what about the revival?

      Delete
  23. Be cool to see what they've got cooking in the oven this time. good luck guys, hope to hear from you soon, keep up the good work.

    ReplyDelete
  24. That's awesome, I'm patiently looking forward to it :D

    By the way, have you made any cheat codes where you can recruit characters at the end of a battle automatically without actually speaking to them?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Any Action Replay codes for the Japanese version should still work. If you can find such a code, go for it, but I don't think there is one. I don't know how such a code would be made. Anyway, the HoS aren't responsible for cheat codes.

  25. Can i just pay someone to this on an R4 card for the 3ds
    Contact lshender@aggies.ncat.edu if your interested

    1. Seriously? It's easy. Like, really, really easy. If you already have the card, it's not complicated. Google is your friend.

  26. Hello,
    I am currently translating Tingle's Love Balloon Trip. I know you mentioned above that you don't want I be part of the project, but I was just wondering if you could answer a few questions I have about rom hacking.

  27. So...is this still a thing? It's been a year and no news or anything.

  28. Does anubody know how to patch the Rom on a andoid device?

    Replies
    1. I found an Android patching program here: http://gbatemp.net/threads/rom-patcher-android.351767
      I haven't tested it, so I make no promises, but it claims to work.
      Of course, the obvious solution is to just patch it on a computer and put the patched rom onto your Android directly. But since you didn't, I'm assuming that's not an option?
      Try that program first, but if you can't get it to work I'll upload the patched rom to Mega or something.

      Delete
    2. The problem I keep coming across with the patcher apps is the translation patch doesn't show up whenever I'm choosing a patch but any other patch for my roms does the same goes for this one. I can select the FE rom but not the patch

      Delete
    3. Well, I have no idea what that's about, but I uploaded the patched rom to Mega.
      https://mega.co.nz/#!HZdkga7S!5JGOaFW-0HuixrxdtztxxX8AQ1ADuPKe8wrdCgcJ51k
      Remember to load the save included in the original patch folder to unlock the DLC.

  29. Hello.. I do not know if anyone visits this site anymore, or if I will get a response, but I need help patching t ROM. Ok, so I look into to patch, and I see the "DRAG CLEAN ROM HERE" box. So I read the read me stuff, and when I attempt to apply the ROM to the "DRAG CLEAN ROM HERE" box, I get the notification "error, patch format is not supported" I believe I get this error message because the DRAG CLEAN ROM HERE box ends in .bat, when usual translation patches (as I've noticed) end in .ips. am I doing something wrong? Please help

    1. I'm pretty much the only one still here, and I'm not staff or anything. To be honest, I have no idea why you're having this problem. But if you'll look a few posts up, I posted a link to Mega that leads to the patched rom. Just download that directly. And remember to load the DLC save included in the patch folder.

    2. It works! Thank you so much, I literally spent hours on end trying to get this to work. I apperciate your help! You sir, are going places

    1. I don't think any of the Heroes of Shadow still check this site. You'll probably have better luck contacting Aveyn Knight/VincentASM directly. This address was posted on his website, Serenes Forest:

      Good luck.
