GhebFE/GhebSaga - 'newest' patch downloads

#1RandomTag529Posted 2/25/2012 11:57:13 AM(edited)
That's not to say either of these are new, as it's been 3 years since GhebFE's been updated, and about a year and a half since there's been an actual release of GhebSaga.

I'm posting these because there's been about 3 different "final" versions of GhebFE floating around, each with their own unique flaws, and they can be hard to troubleshoot. Most prepatched versions (which are illegal and not to be linked to) don't even include the version number to tell what it includes. Meanwhile, most older versions of GhebSaga that are linked on GFAQs or throughout most of the web have been deleted.

I've taken the liberty of updating the included readme files for each patch a bit, mostly to clean up patching instructions, which were notoriously troublesome. Hopefully this'll be a bit easier for newbies, although I imagine most people interested in these hacks have already played them.

GhebFE v0.97 - A hack of FE8. Join Gheb and his companions as they crusade against the imposter Gleb. Complete, as far as I'm aware, though perhaps buggy. The author's expressed interest in cleaning this up at some point, but he never did.

GhebSaga v0.381 - A hack of FE7 and the sequel to GhebFE. I never really played too far into this one, but as far as I'm aware it's some sort of bizarre GhebFE/Portal crossover. Complete partly through Chapter 29; progress on a v0.40 may still be ongoing, but the author hasn't posted anything about the project since last summer.

I take no credit for either of these; both were created by Aitos Saibankan/game_adict 46/Furry YunSeong.

I don't really know who's interested in this stuff anymore, but if you have any questions, I'll stick around to help. Note that you will need a clean FE8/FE7 rom depending on the hack, and the only legal method of obtaining one of those is by dumping it yourself. Neither myself nor anyone else on this board will provide you with illegal download links.

So that patch of GhebFE is good then? I can't remember which version of GhebFE I played, but it would freeze up and stop working once I completed Chapter 19. It may have been a problem with the ROM though. I can live with a few bugs, just as long as enough working pieces are there for me to beat the game.

I've never had the time to play through the whole thing, but as far as I'm aware the final versions should get farther than chapter 19.

It looks like the v0.97 patch for GhebFE introduced a bug which reverted Gheb's preferred axe to a D-rank sword, and gave Gheb an E in swords, meaning he couldn't use it, and was useless for a while. I made a quick fix for both of these bugs (and haven't playtested far enough to know if those are the only new bugs), which should be patched onto a GhebFE v0.97 ROM and NOT to a clean Sacred Stones ROM. Use the UPS patcher included with the GhebFE v0.97 patch.
