That is true, but I chose bold to help ensure that the notices and warnings are noticeable for those who are a bit newer to GS hacking. I usually have to reread something to notice that it is in italics myself, at least in fonts like Verdana or Arial. I can switch to italics if you think that it will look better, but I am worried about whether they might not stand out enough or not.

The problem is putting them in bold makes them stick out more than the links themselves. Which is... annoying. No one looks through the list to find notes. They look through the list to find links.

Ah, good point; they are now italicized. I might search for topics again tomorrow to make sure that I found more of the important ones.

Oh, and I did add another topic to this list: Hidden Data.

No one? I'm sure I would probably look for notes. That is, as long as the notes contain a summary of the most important information found there. (So I don't have to keep shuffling through pages.)

For example, if I wanted the code for GS2 Debug. I wouldn't have to click an extra link.. Apparently I would right now, though. But not really, since I already have it memorized anyway.

What the hell are you even arguing? None of the "notices" given have anything to do with that. There are links provided with the title of the threads, a summary of what is there, and in some cases, an additional note about the content in the link being for advanced hackers. Now if you care to start making sense sometime in the near future, please do so.

?? Arguing? I'm sorry if it came across that way. I do think italics is the most preferred. I was just stating how I don't fit the "no one"in looking for notes.

Okay, I have posted a new topic that relates to abilities in TLA. It will probably become obsolete after one or two versions of the editor, but it is useful if anyone wants to create new EPAs and stuff. When topics become obsolete, I will either use Strikethrough tags or just remove them from this list.

Oh, and now you can also apply Mold and Eddy's effects to any spell that you want... Among other things.

Figure I'll drop this off here. The rooms you need to go to in order to collect your entire party when starting a fresh game, using the debug menus.

Two options here:
The first is to just go to each of these rooms, in order, and complete the task or event in each of them - 264:3, 264:4, 263:3, 263:5, 265:2, 237:4. This method is probably more straightforward, but takes a little longer.
The second option is to set the flags A0A, A0B, A1F, and A24, then warp to 263:5, and continue from there. This actually saves quite a bit of time, since the 263:3 cutscene makes you wait a long time afterward before regaining control.

You can do this as soon as you're able to move with jenna. Don't forget you can hold down the B button and whatever your fastforward button is on your emulator to get through cutscenes faster. After collecting your party, save your game and use the save game editor to adjust your djinn, then reload and debug warp to wherever.

Note: Avoid exiting south of daila (location 2:2) unless you already have echo (flag 037, set automatically with savegame editor), and avoid collecting piers or completing the moapa battle, as each of them will mess with your party. There are probably flags you can set to avoid this for the latter two as well, but I haven't checked them out yet.
Note2: By setting the flags A21 and A23, you can trigger the contigo event in 237:4 to get isaac's team without acquiring all of the GS2 crew (and keeping jenna overworld sprite!). If you unset flags 004-007 beforehand, you can have a party with only isaac's team. If you do this without felix as your overworld sprite, you'll need to use the warp menu to get out.

Other random flags I found:
022: Toggles overworld music. 0 for default, 1 for joined party music.
01E: Toggles hard mode. 0 is default.

edit: GLORIOUS! It seems that the event at warp 4:99 (the starting event of the game) actually removes felix from your party. It does not reset the party. I only tested this when I had felix, jenna, and sheba, but presumably it works for the others, too. Not that useful, really, but cool nonetheless.

Great, thanks for the find! I will go ahead and add this to the first post.

I have another idea. Should I create a topic that links to custom work? Like icons, sprites, songs, etc.? Not sure if it would be very useful right now, which is why I am asking about it.

Hey. Sorry for the double post, but I have a request if anyone can find the time. I updated these two topics recently, but would some of you be so kind as to search for more topics (or patches for the other topic) that I could add? Between the two, there have only been a total of four new additions since July.

Thanks for reading!


Edit: And it won't come without a reward either, haha. I have an idea for two new topics, and might get around to posting them in a bit.

Well, you didn't add the Death Curse turn modifier patch and the Jupiter Healing animation patch, that you did not.

Oh, and before I forget, you also didn't add the voice acting patch for GS1.

Would Treasure Guide and Storybook Flags Guide be feasible?

I'm actually planning on making the Storybook Flags Guide a little more detailed than this, but anyway. (Like perhaps if the story flags are organized by area, I might list which flags go to which area, maybe. And then from there, I might list what each individual flag does.)

Oh, actually... I've got an idea for something that might be added later. I'll make a post and/or edit once it is ready.

August 07, 2017, 05:13:26 AM
Salanewt: To be honest I've been thinking of expanding the battle turn section and also adding code for PCs to have more than two turns in the AI overhaul, but I probably won't allow anyone to have more than four.

August 06, 2017, 12:04:14 AM
Fox: Hmm... What if Agility could be recodded to allow for multiple turns per round? Obvious, calculations could be made in a way that depending on your Agility, you could like get a different number of turns each round. (eg. 1 turn this round, 2 the next, 1 turn again.) Obviously, To ensure 2 turns all the time, you should have at least double the opponent's agility,.... erm...something. So... you/or enmy could be so fast, the opponent can't even make a move, unless turns are capped.
