Oh... Is there any way that we can compress/decompress graphics into/out of Golden Sun without the editor (which is not quite at this stage yet)?

Have a nice day.

Can VisualBoy Advance cope with ROMs bigger than can fit in a GBA cartridge? Is there room in Golden Sun 2 for extra characters, Psynergies, musics, sprites, enemies, etc.?
A rom can be expanded to 32 MB. Luckily, Golden Sun is 8 MB, and the Lost Age is 16 MB, so there's plenty of new space for all that fun stuff.

That is a good thing. From what you say, there is enough room in the Lost age to be able to duplicate the data and put it in the game. This would be pointless, but that means that much more can be added (as well as the places from the first game). I wonder how developed Golden Sun hacking will be by Christmas...

Oh yeah, I was wondering... If I want to insert a midi file, then do I have to use Anvil Studios?

Have a nice day.

You can't really expand the amount of party member characters to be higher than 8 though, not without a lot of work.

Whoever does do it though better release a patch >=D

@Salanewt - You can use any midi editing software, I just prefer Anvil.

Oh, thanks Charon, but I was talking about inserting a midi that has already been extracted from a game (like those on a website).

Have a nice day.

Oh yeah, I am prepared to do a lot of work so I can add more characters (at least until Yoshi is in). In fact, I might forget about adding characters and just replace Piers (but there goes another (almost redundant) character).

Well, I one of my goals this summer is to learn as much as I can about ASM, so yeah. If I can, then I will use ASM to get more characters. Also, if and when it is possible, then I am going to add more graphics for Jenna, and make it so you can choose which gender you are. Who knows, I might make it so Kraden follows Felix (or Jenna if previous idea was successful) around everywhere they go, even on the world map.

So, I was wondering... Other than that one link that I posted, are there any other websites that I can go to that explain ASM hacking (preferable GBA, but SNES or N64 will be fine as well)?

Have a nice day.

I'm thinking about doing some transformations with ASM, and using it to apply it to all of my Pokemon Sprites. Any good resources?

Are you talking about adding to your Jupiter hack, or to add to Golden Sun?

Also, are you talking about graphics or no?

Have a nice day.

Yes, I am refering to my hack and I am also refering to graphics. The main issue is figuring how to replace the old data.

Oh yeah. I can not currently think of any other sources right now, sorry. I am still a novice hacker (not amateur), and I am still reading this tutorial website. However, I will try to help in the future (or with other things).

Have a nice day.

If I can make it work, I might even add an argument for individual Pokemon, but that's a LOT of work. o.o

I would imagine so.

Oh yes, how do I apply the ASM patches to ROM files?

Please and thank you.

Have a nice day.

Finally, an ASM question I can answer o.o

There are ASM compilers. You write the routine in a text document, then you load it in the compiler, and it will make a .bin file with the ASM code. Copy and paste.

Remember, ARM and THUMB codes are WORD based, and THUMB code pointers must end in either 1, 5, 9, or D.

If you're replacing an old routine, find the old routine's pointer, then repoint the pointer to the new routine.

Fox: Okay, so that Summon Night games adds the fram number to the seed, before generating another seed via mul/add....  (GS1-GS3 never adds the fram number.) ... So um, that makes sense! ;  Summon Night:  ((seed + frame) * 0x343FD + 0x269E3C) >> 0x10 ; Which is also on the list here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Linear_congruential_generator
December 12, 2017, 11:10:45 PM
Fox: Yes, and there could be contests. Maybe ones where 1st/2nd/3rd place get a cash reward, but eh. Dunno.... Kind of thinking about making a topic about how people got their job, and what was their experience. (e.g. Did they use references of people already working in the job, and various other things.)
December 09, 2017, 04:24:14 AM
Majora: Import old forum posts for reference, perhaps take posts containing important info like documentation away from the old stickied forum post model and make them into their own pages on a site with an in-built search bar. Might help with SEO, too. If nothing else, perhaps whipping them into PDFs and hosting them via Scribd? The possibilities are boundless when it comes to restructuring a site
December 09, 2017, 04:20:02 AM
Majora: Just a nice idea to have even if it doesn't come to fruition. Updating, modernizing, always a good idea. Could probably do something pretty nifty using a good Wordpress theme
December 09, 2017, 04:15:45 AM
Majora: Would be kind of neat to do something like that for GSHC. Could change it up a bit to show all tweets/instagram posts/facebook posts/golden sun subreddit posts all in one sidebar. It would be cool in that it gives the site it's on (and the topic in general) appear more lively and active, which is a plus
December 09, 2017, 04:14:19 AM
Majora: That does sound interesting. One cool thing I've seen some sites use is a sort of unique take on a sidebar option that acts like a social media integration (like, "See GSHC's latest Tweets"). It displays activity from a variety of related sites, such as Reddit, Twitter, Instagram, etc.
December 09, 2017, 12:58:53 AM
Fox: And the way it'd work via code is not that all users would instantly get nicknames the minute you register... but rather, the moment you view a name if it doesn't have a nickname, it gets one. (My Thoughts.)
December 09, 2017, 12:53:55 AM
Fox: (I was thinking that it would be "Name (Nickname)" ... The nickname is what you first known the user as, and you can change that yourself... and the Name is what the user wants to be called... Something like that.
December 09, 2017, 12:47:56 AM
Fox: So like... for starters, one idea I had was to make it so anyone can name anyone... much like how it works on Skype, and you (the namer) would be the only one to see it, and such...
December 09, 2017, 12:45:02 AM
Fox: Would need to be carefully thought out and tested, though.
December 09, 2017, 12:43:02 AM
Fox: I'm thinking I could make it so that name changes can happen whenever... (Without any limit)... Since I believe there's a way to do it with minimum confusion. (I think.) Hmm....
December 09, 2017, 12:31:36 AM
Fox: (I mean an offline version... at least initially.)
December 09, 2017, 12:25:01 AM
Fox: Now that I have thought about it a bit more, would I be right to assume that GSHC would be one of the most interesting websites to administrate, or no? It's sad to see not much going on with it. == I almost want to make a concept website at some point. :D Anyway, how is everyone doing today?
December 06, 2017, 12:12:59 AM
Fox: Like... Start using Github or something... Do like how many of those other projects such as Citra (WIP 3DS Emulator) does. Etc.
December 06, 2017, 12:08:12 AM
Fox: No idea. I just wish OpenGoldenSun would release it as unfinished, but oh well.
December 05, 2017, 06:52:09 AM
MaxiPower: Bummed out that the open golden sun project is dead it seems with no actitivy in close to a year at this point. Is there any hope left in any other projects?
November 27, 2017, 10:25:28 AM
Fox: (When I say research, mainly refering to the data in the game, though checking websites can count to a degree.)
November 27, 2017, 09:52:27 AM
Fox: Maybe. But Dark Dawn is meh, hahah... I still research it, though, because data can be interesting.
November 27, 2017, 05:28:36 AM
Portakin: I'm here! This game is underrated!
November 25, 2017, 08:03:23 PM
Fox: .... and the email listed in that post makes me think we should just make a new rules topic with most of the same information. (So the old ones can be sort o archived.)
