Hi, I'm using FEditor Adv.  I am using the Class Animation Creator and Class Animation Manager.

So, I've been dabbling into hacking recently.  I've been trying to add a friend's animation into the game in replace as Lyn.

So far, I have been able to successfully get the idle frame in and it ran fine.  Obviously this isn't enough to make an entertaining hack, since you need the animation in as well. 

When I get to the animation I have a little trouble w/ the parsing and/or content related script I've made.

The problem lies between c04 and/or C1A

Standard Attack Code so far:
/// - Mode 1
3  p- standing.png
3  p- attackanim.1.png
3  p- attackanim.2.png
5  p- attackanim.3.png
4  p- attackanim.5.png
3  p- attackanim.6.png
3  p- attackanim.7.png
8  p- attackanim.8.png
3  p- attackanim.9.png
5  p- attackanim.10.png
3  p- attackanim.11.png
3  p- attackanim.12.png
3  p- attackanim.13.png
3  p- attackanim.14.png
4  p- attackanim.15.png
16 p- standing.png

When I copy and paste a template in, 'c04' is indeed, 'c04' and not 'C04'.  However, everyone else uses 'C04' (capital C)
So I figured it was the problem to why I kept getting parsing errors.  In fact, when I changed it to C04, I got a system error.  And it wouldn't even tell me what line was wrong.
So leaving it as 'c04', there is a parsing error on line 11, content being, C1A.

I'm kind of lost here, and have fiddled around with as many variation I could.  Any and all help is appreciated.


If there is any more info required please let me know, since I'm really new at this, and- although I read the rules and stuff, I just don't know many of the terms yet.


If no one here can help you out, you can check out Serenes Forest, which is a somewhat popular Fire Emblem community with an interest in romhacking. Be forewarned though that its community, especially its romhacking one, can be snobbish and hostile at times to anyone who, according to their standards, cannot pull their own weight or who are not making an awesome project for someone else.


Hi, thanks Celice for the response.

Unfortunately, I have already posted a topic about the problem there, but haven't gotten a reply.  Of course, I'm not trying to be impatient or anything of that matter, I'm just asking around, so i can et back to work as soon as possible. 

That being said, I also did find a thread about the same problem, almost entirely, and it was not solved.  Instead the users just attacked the user for his choice of sprites, or something or other, so I definitely see where you're coming from saying what you did.

Hopefully, I can get some help here.
I have also posted the question on a site called FeShrine.  So we'll see how things go!

Thanks again!


I went to look for your thread, and it's possible that no one saw your edit, unfortunately. At least, that's what I'd hope. Maybe try asking over there again, just in case? You could always make a new thread or something to make sure someone sees your plea :beer:


I appreciate it! :D  Blazer has answered my question over at FeShrine.
I've been dabbling further with hacking fe roms for about 2/3 days now! :D
