Love the Mod so far. I wonder if the Domingo Egg still has a use, since it's still in the game :)

I have played the first 2 battles yesterday and I love it so far, such an awesome new spin on my all-time favourite game. I love the fact I don't have to grind in this mod (opposing to Runesamurai), because that way I can just enjoy the mod as is.

The incorporation of the teammembers into the story dialog is so well done.
I also love how you use former-but-not-this-time-joining party members. I am so curious who joins next, who does not, where do they appear etc.

Your work on the graphic side is impressive but I am used to it since your Graphical Update mod :thumbsup:

Here are my 2 favourite moments so far (heavy spoilers, really, Don't look in here if you haven't played up to Battle 3!!!!!, you have been warned :angry: :angry: :mwahaha:)

WARNING: SPOILER!

I wasn't saying make it so we have to grind. Just that we should be able to if we want to. I find it tyrannous to make it so we outright can't.

Also: (Spoilers for fights that come before you can promote your characters)
WARNING: SPOILER!


EDIT: I could've sworn the King of waral appeared in his usual spot so you could buy things from him. But now he doesn't seem to anymore in the newest update.

DOUBLE EDIT: He appears normally after you promote your team.

Overall I do love this mod. Great story, great characters, epic cutscenes. It's an all around awesome and kickass mod.

Updated the mod, hopefully this will help with those who were having trouble at chapter 6 and receiving the sword of light later.

I end up finding this update after I already received the Chaos Breaker. Now I get to have an extra Sword of Light lol.

So I just found out about this mod, and I wanted to give a quick post to express just how happy it makes me. I've been avoiding reading too much of this thread because I'm afraid of spoilers, so until I've played more, I just want to say what incredible life and excitement you've breathed into one of my favorite games. I'd started to feel like people were beginning to forget about this great series, but now here I am playing through this mod with all the magic and wonder I had going through my first playthrough of the original game as a kid. Bravo. Can't wait to see what happens next and what new enemies and characters I run into.

Thanks a ton!

Indeed. It's truly an outstanding mod. Easily one of the best I've ever played.

I do miss having some of my old favorite characters on my team but this is still certainly fun and awesome. The story is awesome and the new cutscenes are awesome. Sega would be proud.

I started playing this mod fresh, and I have to say I'm impressed! But after Waral battle I encounter a (bug?). I promoted all the characters but when the game has to render Amon battle animations (no sprite is showed), the game stops and just freezes. I just advanced keeping her out and stand without doing nothing. But I don't know how long can I get doing that, because if an enemy target her, the game stops, if some other character interact with her, the game stops too, everytime Amon battle sprites are involved. Can this be solved? Thanks

So I havent gotten around to playing this but I have watched someone play it and in the second ship battle after leaving Waral the Frost Harpies seem to cast some high level Freeze spell but it only costs them 1 MP. They have a decent chunk of max MP so I feel this low cost must be a bug?

That is intended, it more or less functions like a critical attack, similar to the vanilla enemies used to employ like the gargoyle and wvyern. They have a 25% chance of it activating.

Hey guys, just updated the mod, seems there were some issues with one of the characters starting with their promoted battle sprite, causing a black screen after promotion. Issue was resolved.

If you have already started a playthough, you can safely replace the .bin file with the new patch version and your playthrough should be fine.

I can confirm, the battle sprite-related error no longer exists. Thank you.

Perhaps what I should've said earlier was "strict" not tyrannous. That's what I meant. For what it's worth I do apologize.

But on the plus side this does help encourage more tactical gameplay and helps add more of a Fire Emblem feel to it.
