This is sort of a personal project, with the goal of adding comprehensive support for same-sex marriage to Fire Emblem: Awakening! This includes not only allowing character of the same sex to reach S support and, if tied to a second generation character, have children, but also new straight and platonic supports that should have been in Awakening in the first place. The project will also attempt to add new support conversations for all of these support options, in-chapter cutscenes for the new parents, and overall making the game treat same-sex marriages correctly, though this is still a work in progress. Get the latest release here! If you have the NA version of Awakening, the easiest way to install this is to drag the romfs folder into the same location on your computer as Awakening's romfs and allowing it to overwrite the files. For more instructions go here! Note: If you have the EUR version of the game, rename the folder m/E to m/U. If you have the JP version, simply put the contents of m/E directly in m. Also, normally, children of same-sex parents won't show up as siblings. You can fix that through some quick save editing I lay out here! Changelog v 0.3.0 Warning: Spoilers inside! Revised the following to be inclusive of same-sex couples: All characters' tile convo dialogue Tharja/Noire P/C Gerome/Cherche P/C Chapter 14 script Replaced the "my love" voice clips from the C-A of Sumia and Chrom's supports (this one was just annoying me haha) Added S Support Conversations for: F!Robin x Sumia F!Robin x Cordelia M!Robin x Frederick M!Robin x Virion M!Robin x Stahl M!Robin x Vaike M!Robin x Kellam M!Robin x Donnel M!Robin x Ricken M!Robin x Gregor M!Robin x Libra M!Robin x Henry Added Parent/Child Support Conversations for: F!Robin & Gerome F!Robin & Inigo F!Robin & Noire F!Robin & Nah F!Robin & Yarne F!Robin & Brady F!Robin & Laurent F!Robin & Kjelle F!Robin & Severa M!Robin & Lucina F!Morgan & Frederick F!Morgan & Virion F!Morgan & Stahl F!Morgan & Vaike F!Morgan & Kellam F!Morgan & Donnel F!Morgan & Ricken F!Morgan & Gregor F!Morgan & Libra F!Morgan & Henry v 0.2.2 Warning: Spoilers inside!

All removed support options restored, all support options in previous version maintained (though it may interact wrongly with old save files containing certain pairings, which I will explain in a later post). Many, many more added. See the complete list of support options not in vanilla Awakening here. All characters except the Morgans (for fear of messing up their paralogue) given functional male and female reclass options to pass down to potential children. @TildeHat's file which unlocks every support in the support log in "extras" and puts in pretty much every support option conceivable-- useful for easily viewing conversations. Text and dialogue changed in many places to either appropriately gender Robin or refer to parents in a gender neutral sense. Note that this is far from completely fixing everywhere the game may misgender characters. Chapter 11 (Partial, Chrom "getting married" text.) Paralogue 12 (Made so that theoretically the Morgans will gender Robin correctly, though obviously as of now there isn't a way to test this) (Haven't tested) Children will gender you correctly in barracks Lucina tile convos Morgan (male and female) tile convos Morgan mentions fixed in other miscellaneous places Support Conversations M!Morgan & Inigo Parent/Child M!Morgan & Gaius Parent/Child M!Morgan & Chrom Parent/Child M!Morgan & Priam Parent/Child Sumia & F!Morgan Parent/Child Lissa & F!Morgan Parent/Child Lucina & F!Morgan Parent/Child Emmeryn & F!Morgan Parent/Child Olivia & F!Morgan Parent/Child Noire & F!Morgan Parent/Child Nowi & F!Morgan Parent/Child F!Morgan x Laurent M!Morgan x Lucina Lucina & Chrom Parent/Child Lucina & M!Morgan Sibling F!Morgan & Owain Sibling F!Morgan & Cynthia Sibling In addition to new support options, some new support conversations were added in!

They assisted in and continue to make many new discoveries about the game which made some of the features of this hack possible, as well as just giving me help along the way with pretty much anything I could think of! They also coded many of the supports for me, and helped me to work out glitches on others! @TildeHat @TildeHat @TildeHat is the gift that keeps on giving. They made many huge breakthroughs such as discovering how to put in new support conversations and how to add more supports to static.bin. @rambon99 is amazing, they took it upon themselves to not only code every Parent/Child and sibling convo for M!Morgan and the bulk of F!Robin's new first gen S Supports, but also some other things which I haven't had the opportunity to parse through yet! @funkylandia who made a support conversation-maker which, while still a wip, aided in seeding up and simplifying the process. The various people who wrote, revised, coded, and just looked over these support conversations. u/krakonkraken @devixer @rambon99 u/asaver @hbreckel @pick-a-god-and-pray @phrenotobe @argonavistactics @DeathChaos25 And everyone else who has provided help, encouragement, and support along the way! Original Post Hi everyone, I'm new here. (And pretty new to ROM Hacking in general). If anyone was interested, I used Character Editor 1.1 to add in quite a few same-sex S ranks (and a handful of new straight ones) into Awakening. Note that this only changed the support levels and none of the text, so new supports will have no dialogue and characters in same-sex relationships will be referred to as the wrong gender in some places (such as female partners being each others' "husbands" according to the status screen). Also, any of the new Chrom S ranks will cause the "Maiden" cutscenes to play in Chapter 11 and 13, but Lucina (and the other kids) will still work normally. In terms of endings: M/M pairings are loaded twice with no dialogue, F/F ones aren't loaded at all, and the game kind of freaks out and loads the solo Kellam ending if you paired FeMU up with another woman. I'm not sure what happens with MaMU yet. Here's the download link. (Warning: Attempting to access a Second Seal with Sumia!MaMorgan, Sully!MaMorgan, Cordelia!MaMorgan, Tharja!MaMorgan, Say'ri!MaMorgan, Flavia!MaMorgan, Tiki!MaMorgan, Sumia!Owain, Sully!Owain, Tharja!Inigo, or Tharja!Brady will make the game freeze. Thus, unless you're going to help me troubleshoot, I'd use this file instead which makes it so that those aforementioned kids don't inherit classes from their second moms. Make sure you rename the file to static.bin.lz). All you need to do is replace static.bin.lz in romfs/data/person with this file and it should work. If you need more detailed instructions, check out this post over at Serenes Forest. List of new S Supports: Warning: Spoilers inside!

And there might be a bit of bias in my selections. Oh well! Unfortunately, as I found out by experimenting with Character Editor, the game crashes if you alter the overall number of supports a character has. So, as a result, I had to remove some supports and get... creative with new non-romantic supports. I tried to only remove ones that people wouldn't miss, but I did end up making some difficult choices. If you were attached to any of these pairings, you could always try to add them back in yourself using Character Editor. Warning: Spoilers inside! What I Removed: Chrom x Maribelle Chrom/Vaike Frederick x Tharja Frederick x Cordelia Virion x Nowi Virion x Tharja Virion x Miriel Vaike x Sully Stahl x Miriel Stahl x Panne Kellam x Lissa Kellam x Olivia Ricken x Cordelia Gaius x Sumia Gaius x Sully Gregor x Olivia Libra x Cordelia Henry x Cordelia Lucina/Cynthia Donnel x Lissa Donnel x Tharja Donnel x Cordelia Anna/Tiki Inigo x Noire Brady x Kjelle Gerome x Severa MaMorgan x Noire MaMorgan x Kjelle FeMorgan/Nah Yarne x Lucina Yarne x FeMorgan Laurent x Lucina New Non-Romantic Supports: Virion/Kellam Vaike/Henry Vaike/Donnel Miriel/Panne Miriel/Cordelia Kellam/Gaius Nowi/Tiki Donnel/Ricken Donnel/Gregor Inigo/Yarne Cynthia/Nah Gerome/Yarne MaMorgan/Laurent So with that all in mind, have a gay old time! I don't know if I'll attempt to hack some of the dialogue/text as well, but if I do it won't be for at least another week or two. ...Also, here are some more screenshots, in case you want to see them.
