Dawn of Ishmeria

Hack of Gemfire

Description:

It is a dark time. For centuries, Ishmeria faced internal conflict between petty principalities. Now, a generation before the Gemfire wars began, it is shortly before the evil wizard Zemmel’s arrival. Will they combine their power long enough to defeat him, or will all of Ishmeria fall to his greed?

Due to the time period (if vanilla scenarios are years 201, 206, 211, and 216, DoI’s scenarios are 176, 179, 182, and 185), fully three-quarters of the officers are all-new, and the rest have their face updated to show that they’re much younger here. Fifth units have also been rebalanced; the gems are closer to each other in power, while for the rest prices make much more sense. If unit X costs more than unit Y, then unit X has an advantage – whether higher numbers, better range, further movement, or even flying ability. There aren’t any “50 gold for a 100-HP unit” issues here!

For your convenience, two IPSes are included, one for the headered version (1,049,088 bytes) and one for the unheadered version (1,048,576 bytes).

Special thanks go out to Gamefaqs’s Gemfire board.

I, DragonAtma give Koei Tecmo full permission to use this mod however they’d like.

As a huge fan of the KOEI SNES library, mods like this one go a long way to breathe new life into an old favorite like Gemfire. I’ve been enjoying Dawn of Ishmeria alongside the hack for alternate scenarios in Romance of the Three Kingdoms 2 for SNES. Highly recommended for strategy game fans!

Thank you DragonAtma. Hope to see more KOEI SNES hacks from you in the future.
