512x386 is x2 the native resolution of the game boy advance. 543x399 is something that you shouldn't be doing as it's not an integer multiple and thus looks like blurry rear end. Speaking of blurry rear end, GBA games don't have the resolution or color depth for .jpgs. .png is much crisper and a must for a sprite-based game like this.

Examples!





VBA can record itself losslessly if you need a recording. Not like lossless GBA video should be that large anyway.

Follow this advice.
As the images are they are quite an eyesore. Also use nearest neighbor resizing, never anything else.


But jesus that's a lot of text.

You could just use lpix.org/sslptest then share the link.
Otherwise you can mirror it on your forum of choice.


Failing that tell them to pony up :10bux:

You may not like the way Funds ranking makes you play, but the game would be trivially easy without it.

Some of us aren't tactical FE savants :colbert:.

Especially since I play FE like a gambler, just rolling those to-hit dice.



What I'm saying is FE hard mode is hard for me.

I think I might have tried that with my first version of the table of contents. That's what ended up only linking to the top of the page instead of to the actual chapter post. But possibly I just don't understand what you mean, can you give an example?

Click on the Link that is on the quoted user's name.

I don't either. It's dumb as hell.


I appreciate your dedication to actually trying a new strategy after a random crit rather than just doing the same thing again and hoping there's no crit this time.

There are ingame ways of manipulating the RNG. It involves 90 degree turns in unit moves.
So Malth could've just done the same thing with a bit more RNG randomizing moves and not got a crit.

By the way, does anyone know if it's possible to upload batches of screenshots to lpix.org at once?

Tech support thread it's in the OP, in short get Rightload with the Lpix plugin.

Tempted to emptyquote.

But yeah, we could definitely do with more non-swordie lords. Hell, even if they are awful, a bow lord could be kind of interesting since you'd have to find a use for them instead of permabenching them like you would any other archer :v:


...I wonder if people would like Hector as much if he came with bows instead of axes...

If he retained his amazing growths and got another weapon out of the plot-promotion then by all means yes.
I'd imagine he'd gain axes, he'd be like a reverse Fighter.

Hahahah you're right.


Let's compare an Iron Bow to the other ranged weapons.

An Iron Bow costs 540 gold for 45 uses.

A Hand Axe 300 for 20 uses.

A Javelin costs 400 for 20 uses.

Let's divide this to cost per attack.

Iron Bow: 12 gold per attack

Hand Axe: 15 gold per attack

Javelin: 20 gold per attack

But is a bow even going to be used 45 times?
In fact I think archers are the only class that you can just give a better-than-steel weapon and just forget about it.

About Ephidel, there was a fanhack that tried to deal with what would happen if he did survive, horribly maimed, burnt and even more insane and unstable. It was covered in the FE megathread and iirc it was a pretty good hack.

If a Swordmaster has a Wo Dao I never let it attack pretty much. Always snipe that thing.

Or park a unit with Defense and laugh at the 3 damage crit.
