Description: This is a randomizer for Golden Sun. It randomizes key items, djinn, summons, classes, PC stats, and equipment characteristics. It also features use of Retreat in the overworld to facilitate backtracking, and dialogue suppression to speed up cutscenes. The exe is will most likely work on Windows and Linux. If if does not work for you, you will have to use the source code:
https://github.com/MarvinXLII/GS-Randomizer

CHANGES TO THE BASE GAME:

Several changes are made regardless of any options chosen:

Additional default psynergy: Garet knows Growth and Avoid; Ivan knows Whirlwind; and Mia knows Ply.

Avoid costs 0 PP, toggles on/off, and works anywhere at any PC level.

Retreat costs 0 PP, works everywhere (except Colosso and the Tolbi boat), and works like Teleport in the Overworld.

The Bilibin Barricade is removed to make a dot on the World Map for Crossbone Isle. After your first visit, you can easily return with Retreat.

Various modifications are made to Lalivero, primarily so that after completing Venus Lighthouse, an item (Black Orb by default) will be collected from Iodem and you can still leave Lalivero.

ITEMS:

The item randomizer shuffles key items: Catch Beads, Empty Bottle, Dragon's Eye, Orb of Force, Douse Drop, Frost Jewel, Lifting Gem, Boat Ticket, Anchor Charm, Mystic Draught, Cloak Ball, Halt Gem, Cell Key, Red Key, Carry Stone, and the Black Orb. Instead of the Killer Ape dropping Douse Drop, one of the following bosses will drop one item: Kraken, Toadonpa, Storm Lizard, or Deadbeard. The game is beatable once you have completed Venus Lighthouse and have the Black Orb.

DJINN:

Djinn and their stat bonuses can be shuffled.

SUMMONS:

Summon costs can be shuffled by element (e.g. Boreas could cost 4 Mars djinn), and attack power can be randomly rescaled by up to 20%.

CLASSES:

The class randomizer shuffles psynergy either by swapping skillsets between classlines or by completely randomizing them. Levels when psynergy are learned can also be randomized (either shuffled or rescaled by up to 20%). Stat boosts can also be shuffled between classlines.

N.B.: Shuffling psynergy levels is not everyone's cup of tea. You can acquire powerful psynergy really early, making bosses a bit too easy and random battles too tedious with high PP costs.

EQUIPMENT:

Equipment is randomized by who can equip what along with price, attack, and defense. Other options to shuffle unleashes, effects, uses, and curses are included. Text descriptions are updated, giving priority to unleashes, then effects, then uses. Detailed description in game will always include effects. Check the cheat log for uses.

PLAYABLE CHARACTERS:

PC elements and their stats can be shuffled, and their starting levels can be modifed as needed.

DIALOGUE:

There is an option to suppress most dialogue during cutscenes. This mainly lessens button mashing, but also allows you to speed through cutscenes in turbo mode.

RANDOM ENCOUNTERS:

These can be turned on and off with Avoid, i.e. when off, cast Avoid again to turn them back on. To reduce grinding, money and experience earned from battles can be rescaled from 0 to 99 times. This only applies to random battles, not mandatory boss battles, in Lunpa, on the Tolbi Boat, the Storm and Tornado Lizards of Suhulla Desert, and in Crossbone Isle. A few of the enemies in Crossbone Isle are found elsewhere, and the scalings still won't apply to them (at least for new). These enemies are well spread out, so it's not as problematic as you might think.

MUSIC:

Music can be shuffled. Right now it only works for towns, caves, overworld, etc. not in random battles.

PROLOGUE/DJINN TUTORIAL:

These can both be skipped. If selected, you start at the farewell cutscene in Vale. The first djinn (Flint by default) will join your party as soon as you walk by it.

UPDATES:
-- 9/18: Fixed possible class randomizer softlock (no Whirlwind/Gale at Goma Cave)
-- 10/5: Fixed Lalivero bug (receiving Black Orb from Iodem)
-- 11/14: Now includes class psynergy, more equipment options, PC stats, and overworld Retreat. Improved gui.
-- 12/7: Updates equipment text for unleashes, effects, and uses.
-- 12/21: Music shuffle & QoL updates (prologue/djinn tutorial skip, avoid toggle, exp/coin)

@bpat: Sorry for the slow reply. Generating exe to run on Windows from python isn't perfect, so there are a few possible causes I know of.

1) PyInstaller exe's are known to give false positives in various antivirus software. This probably isn't your issue if the blank terminal opened.

2) This exe is specific for 64-bit Windows. There might be tools out there that run a 64-bit exe on 32-bit Windows. My solution for 32-bit exe on 64-bit Windows is to run a Linux terminal on Windows, but I have such little experience with Windows that I can't guarantee that it works the other way around.

3) Sometimes the exe is slow, and you might just have to wait 10-30 seconds with a blank terminal before the gui pops up. I didn't notice that for this exe, but it happened a lot to me when testing the gs2 randomizer exe.

How do you run this randomizer? When I try to run the executable I get a blank terminal window.

Hmmm. What do you mean by patch?  It's supposed to modify a clean rom you provide and output a new rom named "patched_seed" that should work on its own.

I generated the exe with 64-bit python 3.7. You shouldn't need python to run the exe yourself.

Thanks for the comment. It worked on both Windows and Linux for me but failed on a fresh installation of Windows. I uploaded a new version using pyinstaller with 64-bit python to make the exe, and that seemed to do the trick. It worked just fine on the new Windows installation. Let me know if it works for you.

If someone else runs 32-bit Windows and this doesn't work, let me know and I can post another exe for that.

Fox: Even just plain Editor work can make some difference. = At least these forums are indexed on the Search engine. I was also curious about whether to um... go through all the topics on these forums and take all the important stuff out/placed into a folder for a bit of organization. Would be a bonus since if something ever happened to this forum, or if we ever wanted to start afresh again, it wouldn't be that difficult to do so.
December 24, 2019, 09:23:03 PM
Fox: One thing is for sure. This place has become completely dead. (Mostly because of Discord.)  = I don't think much will happen with this forum unless I, Salanewt, or someone else does a thing.
December 24, 2019, 09:18:05 PM
Fox: Probably not?
December 24, 2019, 06:51:08 PM
Luna_blade: I suppose this is the last Christmas of this forum? 
December 24, 2019, 06:50:51 PM
Luna_blade: Yay thanks for the coins
December 19, 2019, 04:39:45 AM
Fox: Okay, another thought... "gsmagic" could be the code name/project name... and "Golden Sun Magic" could be the more formal official name... (As in using both names.)  -  I still need to look into these other games as well... so who knows if it could be better to call it Camelot Magic if those should ever be supported to a decent standard.  Would probably be a long time from now, though. As I can be pretty lazy.
December 18, 2019, 10:01:39 PM
Foreclosure: gsmagic is fine
December 17, 2019, 05:44:32 PM
Fox: Also. I call my program "gsmagic" and not "GSMagic" =P (Not asking for correction/I being silly)... Had to call it something, so picked something short.  Maybe I should rename it to Golden Sun Magic later. *shrug*
December 17, 2019, 05:35:04 PM
Fox: (And "Golden Sun" instead of "GS" to reduce confusion that would likely not be there anyway... when "Golden Sun" doesn't take up much space to start with. (Imagine being new and thinking GS meant GameShark, or some other oddity. Ew.)) - All just thoughts...I'm still going with most of this not mattering that much, though.
December 17, 2019, 05:12:55 PM
Fox: "Misc. GS Hacking" = That name looks odd, so I'd probably just go with "Golden Sun Hacking"
December 17, 2019, 05:08:05 PM
Fox: I tempted to also suggest the Editors can go in the first category. Since the Editor is the reason this place exists in the first place. (I think.)
December 17, 2019, 04:53:19 PM
Fox: (combined = Not meant to be taken literally... but rather.... to generalize things more, since it apparently looks like we don't need the extra space no one is using.)
December 17, 2019, 04:48:49 PM
Fox: Worse still... we've only used those for Golden Sun content.... and there's not much there.
December 17, 2019, 04:45:53 PM
Fox: E.g. Maybe everything in "Assets & Discussion" could be combined with "Creative Works".... I don't feel like sound and art apply to general hacking anyway... that only comes into play when you have tools to insert them.
December 17, 2019, 04:40:26 PM
Fox: categories and/or forums
December 17, 2019, 04:36:48 PM
Fox: Everything else seems to be about right, though. Perhaps some categories could be combined(?), but doesn't really matter that much.
December 17, 2019, 04:33:03 PM
Fox: (I still think The Community section fits best at the bottom. =P)
December 15, 2019, 05:10:04 PM
Salanewt: Heya! I'm planning to get the demo up today, but if you can't wait then it's already available on the Discord.
December 15, 2019, 04:12:27 AM
Fox: (Then sell the badges on the Trade Center for a very high price... and give a lot of active people coins to buy them with, so they can basically transfer the coins to me if they want something... Gosh I could be a naughty hoarder. =P)
December 15, 2019, 04:06:19 AM
Fox: I'd buy up all the stock for each item too... but man... I think I'm too lazy for that. =P
December 15, 2019, 04:01:24 AM
Fox: There we go. That should be all of them.
December 15, 2019, 03:25:32 AM
Fox: Duplicates will still show up as separate entries on the profile as well. Interestingly enough.
December 15, 2019, 03:18:25 AM
Fox: (Well, one of each badge, at least.)
December 15, 2019, 03:18:08 AM
Fox: Now I can buy up the whole shop. :3
December 14, 2019, 08:58:08 PM
Foreclosure: Guys, I really want to see the AI overhaul demo... please fast! :D hehehe
December 14, 2019, 08:57:33 PM
Foreclosure: I sent 2 thousand coins for ya bro
December 14, 2019, 01:31:38 AM
Fox: In my opinion, even with the old system where it was set up so you could only coin people once per hour... I think it would have been far more fair if we could have also coined ourselves hourly.... since people have favoritism for certain people.... I feel like that could mitigate it some. At least to get badges that people care about the most. - Unlimited coining sounds like a step further than that, which is interesting... :)
December 14, 2019, 01:12:00 AM
Fox: Do note, that people can't coin themselves... but I feel if you got someone who's willing to transfer the coins you give them back to you... it is as though you have that coin option on yourself anyway....
December 14, 2019, 01:07:29 AM
Fox: Go to any of my forum posts, look for where it says Coins... under that, you'll see [increase] , clicking that will give me coins. You won't lose anything for doing so. Click it as much as you like... Under that, you should see Send Money (a faster option if you got the coins). Use that link to transfer your coins to me of any amount you want. (e.g. Put in 2000, means I get 2000, you lose 2000... but if I've already given you 2000+, you don't really have to see it as actually losing anything.)
December 13, 2019, 03:42:39 PM
Foreclosure: How do I return favor, sir?
