I love the synergy typo example.  You can hear the writer mispronouncing the word as they type. XD

Are you using the batch for TBS, or for TLA?  Balanced Age has a patch for both GS1 (TBS) and GS2 (TLA), so you'll want to make sure you're patching the right game with the right patch.

Check dullahan's resistances maybe?  Might have typoed them and accidently made him vulnerable to it... :/

No, I think they were saying that Remedy should be flagged to work in fields/dungeons as well as battle.  That's just a flag to toggle.

@Character/Party Editor = Yep! Those are part of the elemental levels,  but are also combined with the djinn levels...

So... the gist is:
Step 1: Calculate a class type. (GS1: By Primary/Secondary elements ; GS2: By Primary/Secondary elements, item classes, and Jenna/Piers have different base classes.)
Step 2: Scan all classes from end to beginning for matching class type.  If there's a match, the elemental levels are checked. If you have those, then that's your class! Otherwise the scan continues.
I think he means the ones digit in those values.  When you try to change it so that opposing elements are the lowest values instead of symbiotic, it throws the whole class system out of whack.

Edit:  Oops, thought this was on front page.  My bad.

Hello, everyone! I'm new to the forums. I'm a huge fan of the Golden Sun series, and I found out about this forum while googling for revamps of the GBA games. I'm really interested in playing mods from users here. I'm still confused how all of it works, but I'm really excited to replay revamps for Golden Sun. Have a good one!
I personally recommend Caledor's works.  It's well worth the playthrough to experience all the changes in the games - The Lost Age in particular.

We're just not going to agree on this then.

Eh, easiest thing to do is make Iris useful - a 6-7 djinn cost Iris does that.  At double the cost, it's pointless.
9  The Editor / Golden Sun Hacking / Re: Three Ideas for Balancing Summons on: August 13, 2017, 09:44:15 PM
Whereas I fundamentally disagree - if a reward is useless, then it's not a worthy reward, especially if the price of the reward is facing a boss as cheap as Dullahan.  Why bother fighting it?  Once you know how pointless the reward is, then there's no point in even bothering unless you're doing a completionist run.  Might as well have been given a crumpled piece of paper saying "you beat dullahan, good for you", since that would be equally as useful as a reward.
10  The Editor / Golden Sun Hacking / Re: Three Ideas for Balancing Summons on: August 13, 2017, 04:15:21 AM
But see, here's the thing; you need to beat Dullahan to GET to Iris!  Is it really OP when you don't have it for the guy who's toughest anyway?
But it's not.  It costs too much to be useful.  If it was OP, then it'd be too cheap for the effect.  What good is a prize that's never worth using?
11  The Editor / Golden Sun Hacking / Re: Three Ideas for Balancing Summons on: August 12, 2017, 09:52:26 PM
I think Iris' secondary effect is straight up excessive.  It's almost like they made it that powerful to justify the extreme cost.  I'm fine turning it into a front row only percentile recovery.  Perhaps drop revival effects for PP recovery.  How's 50% HP recovery and 12.5% PP Recovery sound for a 7 cost summon?
12  The Editor / Golden Sun Hacking / Re: Three Ideas for Balancing Summons on: August 12, 2017, 08:17:18 PM
Honestly, the turn gating is something I disagree with.  There are better ways to handle summons - one of the biggest things you could do is basically make enemies faster so that summon rushing can be punished.  Plus, this basically makes any summon that costs more than 5-6 even more useless than they already are.  Balancing summons would need to go both ways, because some just can't justify their cost.
13  The Editor / Golden Sun Hacking / Re: Three Ideas for Balancing Summons on: August 11, 2017, 06:07:27 PM
Level helps when it comes to pacing out the game.  IMO, that's where it's most useful.  "What level do I expect the party to be in this area?  I'll make foes be around that level."  Apart from that... Ehhhh?  I always figured Agility made more sense for flee rate, honestly.  Level really only matters for determining guaranteed rate of flight - if you're above X levels over the enemy, flee rate should just be 100%.
14  The Editor / Golden Sun Hacking / Re: Three Ideas for Balancing Summons on: August 10, 2017, 08:55:06 PM
Hmm...  Good point.  If it's impossible to flee, it'd be a bit too strict.  What if we have a different formula for when you're facing foes of a higher level vs a lower level?  Like, using the old formula if it's a negative value, but the *15 version if it's a positive value?  That way it stays kinda tough if you're underleveled (as it should), but if you're higher level and foes are just kinda trivial, then fleeing from them should be trivial too?

I mean, considering GS' pacing, it's not too terribly hard to get to a higher level.  I don't think I ever had a first run in any GS game where I wasn't overleveled the first time I played through it.

Here's another idea - what if relative level looks at total level and not average level?  It'd make sense that it's harder to get away from a horde of enemies than it would be to get away from a couple foes.  What do y'all think?  Nevermind, that might make it too easy due to how rarely you face at least four foes.
15  The Editor / Golden Sun Hacking / Re: Three Ideas for Balancing Summons on: August 10, 2017, 08:32:26 PM
Looking at that, you get 100% after what, ten level difference?  If we used (Relative Level * 10) then it'd max at 5 over, and if (Relative Level * 15) it'd max at 3-4 over.  I think either of those two would be a better modifier, and I'm leaning towards the last one (*15) myself personally.

Fox: I must say... life can be complicated..... when you have question(s) (via email) ... and it seems like they sort of get ignored. :D ; Fun, (And sometimes, a person may respond, and completely not answer the question.... so like... 3-person conversation.) Hahahaha!!
January 15, 2018, 07:26:16 PM
Fox: (path) 1 text=(address) char=(address) free=(address) ; << Well, closer to this... but yeah... even if I do choose to have defaults in the code, I could still use this method for overrides.
January 15, 2018, 07:24:28 PM
Fox: So like (path) 0 text=(address) char=(address) len=(number) ; (path) 1 free=(address) ; Or something. But that's just a quick example.
January 15, 2018, 06:59:14 PM
Fox: Hopefully. I was wanting to make it so you could put in the addresses/etc. as one of the arguments in the path. Hm?
January 15, 2018, 03:37:07 PM
KyleRunner: Nice! I hope you'll add compatibility with others games (GS1, Mario Golf and Tennis) soon.
January 14, 2018, 11:40:09 PM
Fox: Okay. Posted (in Downloads section) an initial cutdown version for now, for my text compressor. Basically to separate the code from my Editor for anyone who wants to mess with it. It only supports GS2, because I still didn't add the addresses/etc. for the other games.
January 14, 2018, 05:01:00 PM
Fox: Okay! Going to need to think how I want it to work. Initial thoughts is maybe have a number of arguments in the filepath thing. And have a number of shortcuts (files) to be used as examples. Assuming there are no problems.
January 14, 2018, 10:38:24 AM
KyleRunner: Well... I'm used to editing text ina a text editor, so... yes! Thanks in advance!
January 13, 2018, 11:38:43 PM
Fox: (Text editor = Text Document like notepad.)
January 13, 2018, 11:38:21 PM
Fox: Would you prefer during the text editing in a text editor? (Like what gstoolkit lets you do?) I could probably make a separate tool or something to compress it.
January 13, 2018, 10:10:02 PM
KyleRunner: Ok. Once I finish my Lost Age translation, I'll try a Mario Golf one. Thanks. (But I'll need help).
January 13, 2018, 10:03:17 PM
Fox: If you want to make it "permanent" (part of a hack), then you'd edit code in the ROM that writes to this location of the IDs you'd want to change. (You can find these locations by using a breakpoint debugger like SDL-H or no$gba.)
January 13, 2018, 10:00:11 PM
Fox: Reload/switch = Recommended to be done through Debug mode/warp menu, ofcourse... since doors seem to appear as if they were disabled? ; 03001238:01 and B+Start to get to warp menu.
January 13, 2018, 09:55:39 PM
Fox: @Kyle Runner = It might be, but you'd have to use the correct addresses for Mario Golf, rather than for GS2 as I have it right now. ; @raijinken = Yes. 02000454 = ID of leader. (Change this and reload/switch room you are in, enjoy.)
January 13, 2018, 02:23:29 PM
raijinken: Hey guys, is it possible to somehow change the lead character on the map? Was wondering. I remember there was a cheat to use Jenna, but what if I wanted Isaac, or Piers?
January 13, 2018, 02:10:03 PM
KyleRunner: Hey, Fox *
January 13, 2018, 02:09:37 PM
KyleRunner: Hey, is your text editor compatible with Mario Golf (GBA)?
January 11, 2018, 08:33:13 PM
Fox: But if it isn't an oversight, I still can't imagine it being that useful.
January 11, 2018, 08:28:24 PM
Fox: part, ofcourse.
January 11, 2018, 08:28:15 PM
Fox: 0200274C = Hmm... Stuff happens here when you use Cyclone around bushes. (These cause tile replacements, and setting event 0 to those tiles.) - And I guess this kept here so it can be scanned after battle. (To re-update the map.) So here is my fun thought (assuming if it is even possible, or even convenient if so.) ... Are there any events from other maps that could be disabled do to using Cyclone on bushes + Retreat glitch? I'll need to do some testing to make sure this isn't an oversight on my
