1  Golden Sun Hacking Community / Feedback / Coins on: June 07, 2017, 03:41:17 AM
Some things I've noticed, unless I'm being dumb and I just don't see it.

Being given coins doesn't give you a notification Edit: Never mind, found it in the profile settings

You don't get any indication that the hourly cooldown has passed
2  General Hacking / Project list / The Golden Sun fangame to end all fangames (hopefully) on: June 06, 2017, 04:40:07 AM
So I've been thinking of the Golden Sun series for quite a while, and I think it's high time we had some new material.
Camelot looks like they've given up on the offer to make a new one for enough request, and I don't think they'd be up to it anymore.
Nintendo also hasn't even mentioned the games in six years besides virtual consoles.

So with the development of Open Golden Sun, I think we should take matters into our own hands, and make a game that makes the six year wait worth it.

I propose:

Golden Sun: The Convert Dusk

Setting-

Golden Sun: The Convert Dusk (or GSCD or TCD) is an episodic adventure taking place hundreds of years after the end of Golden Sun: Dark Dawn. The world is in a new golden age, but the dangers of alchemy begin to resurface, and the heroes learn why alchemy was sealed in the first place as they journey to return the world to a balanced state.

Concepts-

The fundaments from Dark Dawn return, but not they way you'd think. Instead of being true "elements" they are two sides of a whole, and can be wielded by anyone.
 Luna"Luna", the fundament of shadow, represents: cold, solitude, calm, healing through recuperation, and damage through deterioration
 Sol"Sol", the fundament of light, represents: heat, company, excitement, healing through invigoration, and damage through overwhelming
Neither has an alignment towards morality, only approaches to the world.
In addition there are no luna or sol spells, nor are there any luna or sol adepts. Instead, elemental psynergy spells, djinn, and summons may be aligned towards one fundament, giving radically different effects than usual for the element.

Due to the events in Dark Dawn, a new game mechanic will be introduced, the eclipse event.

What is an eclipse event?
An eclipse event is a mechanic that benefits the player in battle through careful planning, although you may just get lucky.

When does an eclipse happen?
An eclipse event can occur at random, but is very rare, only happening about ten times through the entire game.
Alternatively, there is a meter that shows up during battle. This meter looks something like this:
 Unknown Unknown Unknown Neutral Unknown Unknown Unknown
When you cast any fundament-aligned ability, the meter fills up.

For example:
Isaac (not a party member) casts vertigo (venus-luna)
 Unknown Unknown Unknown Neutral Luna Unknown Unknown
Garet (not a party member) unleashes blind!  Mars Djinni (mars-sol)
 Unknown Unknown Sol Neutral Luna Unknown Unknown
And so on

When the meter increases, so do your chances of activating an eclipse event! In fact, when the meter is completely full your next turn is guaranteed to be an eclipse event. But be careful, filling up one side of the meter much more than the other can lead to consequences.

What does an eclipse do?
Glad you asked! It's not like I wasn't going to answer it whether you like it or not.
During an eclipse event, two of your party members will be able to combine attacks for one turn. This can range from super-buffing someone for one powerful attack, to combining a spell with a summon. Hopefully, this will greatly increase the strategy in battle and make for some amazing memories.

Story, party members, and more mechanics soon.
3  The Community / RP Section / Tabletop RPG on: June 04, 2017, 09:33:12 PM
Since there's a distinct lack of RP in these forums and I have no current projects, I would like to make a tabletop RPG ruleset in the style of Golden Sun. Hopefully, this will open up RP to people who previously had little interest and/or introduce the world of Weyard to people who have had no interaction with Golden Sun.
If it's alright, I will be using the current RP character system (credit to Rolina) and the Golden Sun Reloaded hack (credit to Caledor) as inspiration for mechanics.
Please reply if you have any interest or ideas regarding the RPG
4  The Community / Introductions / Hey guys! I'm new here, thought I'd introduce myself on: June 04, 2017, 01:03:39 PM
I haven't been a fan of the Golden Sun games for very long, but that's only due to lack of knowledge. I'm relatively coding inclined (but then, who here isn't?) and I can't wait for Open Golden Sun so I can make my very own fangame. I hope I can be of help, or at least provide some humor. And thanks for having me!

P.S. If anyone knows any quirks of this forum, can you please let me know? I once was on a forum that didn't let you search when you were logged in.

Infitek: Do you know if there any custom Alex battle sprites available on the internet ?

Salanewt: Updated it to provide more info that I forgot to mention.

Salanewt: I'm still trying to iron out IQ 2 but I'm pretty sure it's entirely random targeting.
October 13, 2018, 03:16:29 AM
Salanewt: Oh yeah, I posted some more info about enemy IQ.

Luna_blade: there is jjppof's html5 project...
October 12, 2018, 06:19:17 AM
Luna_blade: Though Momo rings a bell it seems I came here after you left
October 11, 2018, 12:49:41 AM
Fox: (If that makes sense.)
October 11, 2018, 12:48:33 AM
Fox: Yeah, I guess so.  More just saying that's a good place to get answers to GS related questions at the moment.
October 11, 2018, 12:42:28 AM
Crystal Sonata: I did before, but I guess I could try it again
October 11, 2018, 12:41:32 AM
Fox: Not much at the moment. This forum seems pretty quiet. Perhaps you'd be interested in joining the Discord for GSHC that seems to have more activity?
October 10, 2018, 11:16:53 PM
Crystal Sonata: Any projects going on? I need a distraction from the daily grind and I'm interested in hacking GS again.
October 10, 2018, 10:02:53 PM
Fox: Thanks, and good to see you too!
October 10, 2018, 10:02:10 PM
Fox: A few people I'm sure... Most likely the regulars of the past. Such as Atrius, Charon, Role, Salanewt....
October 10, 2018, 03:11:17 AM
Crystal Sonata: I find myself wondering who still remembers me here. Obvs you do (Good to see ya Tea)
October 10, 2018, 12:46:11 AM
Fox: On second thought, it might be because you haven't posted much as Crystal Sonata.
October 10, 2018, 12:41:12 AM
Fox: And your intro isn't that bad. - I imagine most people would say the same about theirs?
