    Fire Emblem: Old Mystery of the Emblem
    A world without Kris

    Fire Emblem: New Mystery of the Emblem - Heroes of Light and Shadow (henceforth FE12) is somewhat of a divisive game.A remake of the third Fire Emblem game, FE12 adds a large amount of additional content to the game, including an unskippable eight chapter glorified tutorial.
    Most visibly and notably is the addition of a self-insert player character, known by default as Kris. This character is forcibly inserted into many scenes, often stealing the spotlight from Marth, the game's original protagonist. The large cast of FE12, greatly expanded from FE3, largely devote their conversations towards praising Kris for every small feat he accomplishes. Even without Kris's presence, the remake script has been significantly cut down in comparison to the original's. Many large scenes of plot and world development are relegated to optional base conversations told to Kris. Many long-time Fire Emblem players utterly despise the self-insert's glaring presence. While it can be argued if the original and remake have better gameplay, this is not the case for the story.

    The original story is superior. And this patch serves the purpose of restoring it. Kris has been purged from all main story cutscenes, and missing details that have vanished from the story of FE12 have been restored back into it. In addition, some optional patches to cut out more of the remake-exclusive content or to restore the original game's weapon balance have been included.

    Apply "Old Mystery of the Emblem.xdelta" to a clean Japanese rom of FE12.
    OR
    Apply "Old Mystery English.xdelta" to a rom patched with v3.01 of the Heroes of Shadow translation.
    Do not attempt to apply both at once! The result will be the same regardless of the patch applied.

    This hack has several optional patches; their details are described in the readme. Apply these patches to a rom patched with the base patch. These affect the gameplay in various ways.
    The base patch does not change gameplay in any way. It exclusively edits the story.

    A spreadsheet comparing the Fire Emblem 3 and Fire Emblem 12 scripts is included as a bonus.
