Sorry to hear that Jamie, hope you can come back!

Eventually!

Hello norn...

Anyway, keep in mind that spam is quite a lot more restricted here.

What do you mean by more evaluation? Do you mean in the story?

No, not really. I mean, like, why would they create the time portal? How? What did it look like?
4  The Community / Creative Works / Re: The Fallen Tactician on: March 07, 2010, 06:43:04 AM
Obligatory-

Garm is the Sacred Twin black axe of Grado. Garm is S-Ranked, meaning a unit must have an S-Rank in axes to use it. Due to the fact that a unit can only one S-Rank, a, say, a Warrior must choose between S-Ranking Bows or S-Ranking Axes. However, I slightly lied. Lyon can S-Rank both Dark Magic and Staves. In Fire Emblem 6: Fuuin no Tsurugi, a unit can S-Rank all possible weapons it can use. Therefore, a FE6 unit, to be specific, a FE6 Paladin, the best of which is Zealot, could use Garm, Audhulma, and Vidofnir. I'm sorry, I slightly lied again. A FE6 unit could not use Fire Emblem 8: The Sacred Stones weapons. However, it can use FE6 weapons. Therefore, it can use the Armads, Durandal, and Malte. However, it can not use all three at once, unless the game has been significantly altered and the Paladin has three arms. But that's slightly off-topic, I digress. We are talking about FE8 because we are on the FE8 board. The possible wielders of Garm are, in order of appearance, Gilliam, Franz, Garcia, Ross, Kyle, Forde, Amelia, Duessel, Gerik, Dozla, Caellach, and Fado. Quite a large portion of FE8's cast can use Garm. However, many of these units can only use axes post-promotion, therefore increasing the difficulty of getting them an S-Rank in axes. It can be done easier, however, if you use the Devil Axe. The Devil Axe gives 8 times as much axe weapon experience as most other axes or most other weapons. However, the Devil Axe is very heavy and very innaccurate. Also, it can backfire and do damage to the user equal to the damage it would've done to the opponent. The Devil Axe is risky but it has a good potential benefit for the user. Garm gives a +5 bonus to Speed. This is good because many of the potential Garm wielders could benefit from the boost. In appearance of order, I mean order of appearance, they are Garcia, Ross, Kyle, Duessel, Dozla, Caellach and Fado. None of them have good Speed. The stereotypical axe user often lacks Speed. A notable exception to this is Dart from Fire Emblem 7: Rekka no Ken. Dart has an impressive Speed stat, so giving Dart the Garm axe would increase his Speed to make it quite high. I'm sorry, I slightly lied again. Please punish me in a kinky way. Back to what I was saying. Dart cannot use Garm, despite the fact that the only weapon type he can use, let alone S-Rank, is axes. Why, you ask? Garm does nto, I mean, not, exist in FE7. However, Basilikos does. Basilikos could be considered an inferior version of Garm. I'm sorry, but I am digressing from the point I am trying to make. Please reprimand me if I do this again. Garm is acquired upon completing Eirika's Chapter 15: Scorched Sand or Ephraim's Chapter 14: Father and Son. Interestingly, the son does not appear during the Chapter. I'm sorry, i, I mean I, slightly lied again. The son, Lyon, appears in conversation scenes before and after the main conflict in Father and Son. However, I am slightly digressing. Upon completion of said Chapter(s), Garm, along with Gleipnir, are added to the main character's inventory. However, something interesting happens when the main character's inventory is full. I am sorry, what happens isn't very interesting. Something truly interesting does happen when the main character's inventory and the Supply convoy is full. In the first instance, you will have to send two of the main character's items to Supply, and you will have to discard two of the main character's items in the latter circumstance. This creates the interesting paradox where the sacred relics of Grado can be simply discarded. This is interesting because such powerful items, two of the eight used to defeat the feared Demon King, are merely thrown away.I'm sorry, I slightly lied again. Only seven of those items can be used against the Demon King. Latona, the Holy Staff of Rausten, cannot be used against the Demon King because it is a staff that heals all of your units except the one who uses it. However, it has little strategic use because getting one of your units to S-Rank Staves is worthless. I'm sorry, I digressed yet again. Please discipline me, Master.




Now, I really like the concept, and I've only read the first chapter, but it's not very well executed. The most obvious is the varying tenses.

Compare:
Quote from: present tense
Athos seems to accept his fate however
Quote from: past tense
Mark and his friends' journey was close to an end

Some sentences could be rewritten to make little sense, for example:
Quote
Athos was the first to recover from the shock of the dragons and to try and do something to stop them.
Could be improved by saying:
Quote
Athos was the first to recover from the shock of the dragons' appearance, and immediately attempted to stop them.

Some are grammatically incorrect:
Quote
At that moment. Bramimond then appears and with Ninian.
Could be replaced by:
Quote
At that moment, Brammimond appeared with Ninian.

Some are just fugly:
Quote
Surprisingly, she was able to use her ice dragon powers which she kills two of the dragons and severely weakens the last one.

And some I would like some more evaluation, like the concept of the time portal.

Other than this, it seems quite good. The plot is quite original, and I'll probably end up reading the rest... eventually.

7  General Hacking / Non-GS Hacking / Re: Mario Sun Topic: Player Characters on: February 24, 2010, 12:19:17 PM
I personally find 4 as the best number, since it makes it easier to work with... but so far it's going for 8...

This. A story with a maxed-out poarty of 8 would be overly complicated, and I can't see most of those characters getting enough... I forget the word...

Whatever, just look at Mia or Piers, very shallow characters, and look at Ivan- very serendipitous meeting..

And having an amount between 4 and 8 would just look ugly >_>

EDIT: Backstory.

I don't think this deserves its own topic so-

9  General Hacking / Non-GS Hacking / Re: A present for Sala on: February 19, 2010, 06:15:29 PM
So basically... it's a Mario Game with the GS engine? I love it!

Well, there are a couple of things I might add, but keep in mind I've only ever played Superstar Saga and Partners in Time.

Mimics could easily become Thwomps, building up on the "?" block idea.

There could be a bit of a problem with the puzzle like dungeons, as a whole new series of sprites would be made, and, seeing a jump element, one would likely wonder- "Why don't I just jump onto the pillar?"

Well, here are my two cents on utility psynergies:

Reveal:Torch (Fire)

I can't see much allocation for a reveal psynerg, other than causing the surrounding dark and using a "Torch " psynergy as a light and giving the surroundings a redd hue. I think it's possible.

Whirlwind: Burn (Fire)

Simple. You burn grass instead of blowing it away, as we have no wind element. Unless I'm mistaken. Which is quite likely.

Hand Set Psynergies (Move, Catch, Lift, etc): Variety of Names (Jump)

A Luigi sprite, or whoever, replaces the hand image and jumps to the object, doing whatever the psynergy normally does.

Naturally, some can be kept like Frost or Burst, but yeah, most of them won't make much sense.
10  The Community / Tech, Gaming and Entertainment / Re: Pokémon! on: February 09, 2010, 11:13:50 AM
I've got something important to say-

The greatest combo ever.

Hippowdon for Sandstorm.
Ninjask: Protect: Speed +1, Sub: Speed +1 Attack +1, Protect: Speed +1, Baton Pass
Aggron: Head Smash

As long as Ninjask doesn't get outsped on the first Sub (highly unlikely- +1 with base 160) or ouprioritsed, and taking it's x4 Stealth Rock weakness, you get guaranteed +3 Speed and +1 Attack. If no Stealth Rock, guaranteed +5. Baton Pass into Aggron, who has a base 180 defence, 60 +1 (sandstorm) Special defence, and a 225 base power move (Head Smash) taking into account STAB, now with +1 attack. Give Aggron SubPunch for defence and decent coverage, and Magnet Rise to cancel out its 4x Ground weakness, and you've got one broken sweeper.

^What he said.

Welcome to the Golden Sun Hacking Community, yada, yada. Hope you have fun!
13  General Hacking / Project List / Re: My somewhat odd hack on: January 31, 2010, 08:17:29 PM
Well, not skip, but temporarily walk around it to get to Garoh.

So, do you think it will be a good idea?
14  General Hacking / Project List / Re: My somewhat odd hack on: January 31, 2010, 12:29:58 PM
Okay, so I've been thinking. (oh sh-)

Well, the Temple has recently had a large uprise of "Let's Play"'s, right? So why don't I make a Let's Play for this? I mean really, I don't think I've made a single contribution here, and this could possibly get quite a few more people to try out the hack, and maybe a couple new members. So far, I'm only up to Garoh, and I've skipped the desert, so I won't be backtracking much.

Of course, you're free to disagree.

EDIT: Of course only being able to get up to Lemuria would be a problam, as well as potential glitches... Hey I can use a save file from this patch on a later version of it, right?
15  Golden Sun Resources / The Classic GS Editor / Re: New Feature Preview Topic (Happy Anniversary GS TLA Editor!) on: January 30, 2010, 04:47:09 AM
Am I the only one that finds the off-topic discussion debate argument complaining flames hilarious?

No, no you are not.
16  The Community / Creative Works / Re: Role, I found you the perfect fanfiction! on: January 29, 2010, 07:39:20 AM
The thing is, that WHOLE THING is true, well, except for maybe that last part. Well... actually, I was only there long enough to see the last hacking, but...

You know that guy who seems to have written just about every article on the GS Wikia? Yeah, he wrote all that, so it seems pretty trustworthy...
17  The Community / Creative Works / Re: Role, I found you the perfect fanfiction! on: January 28, 2010, 06:37:08 AM
He's also saved the Temple from countless hacking attempts.

Just saying.
18  The Community / Introductions / Re: Hello on: January 26, 2010, 01:21:51 AM
Yep, and I really am Ulta.
19  The Community / Creative Works / Re: Role, I found you the perfect fanfiction! on: January 25, 2010, 02:21:15 AM
Well, first of all, I have no idea what yandere and yangire are ;)

And go around the Temple more, you'll see why he stopped writing it :D

Apparently he's still planning to continue it though.

Fox: I guess one thing this game has going for it is the Day and Night cycle.
Yesterday at 04:51:46 AM
Fox: Also, I noticed since the very beginning of the game, that usually the dresser drawers (whatever you call them) have items in them.
Yesterday at 04:48:20 AM
Fox: (And I only recently got Karn, the fourth PC.)
Yesterday at 04:36:01 AM
Fox: Was playing Breath of Fire I.... and I must say.... that game's pretty bland.... listening to the same songs basically everywhere... and multiple NPCs saying the exact same thing.  Most of it plays about the same... a maze with common useless items in chests, maybe you'll get one or two fine equipment, but yeah.  ... I want to check #II again later, the game I remember playing like... over a decade ago.

Salanewt: Oh hey! It does, yeah.
February 02, 2020, 06:42:38 PM
Mastermind: holy crap this place still exists?
December 24, 2019, 09:33:09 PM
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

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.)
