Whats been making me mad is how the news has been making the illegals look like the good guys and for some crazy reason have more rights then us??? Sure getting past our border is an achievement, and their reward should be launched back back over the fence by strapping a rocket to their leg and firing them over.

 illegal: but i have a baby!
zman: its OK don't worry.

*zman straps the baby to the illegal*
WOSHHHHHHHHHHHhhHHHHHH!!!!!!!


O and those @#$ holes who think we will mix up people who came across legally.
if you can't speak English, your either a baby, a foreigner, or an illegal. those who can't speak English shouldn't even be a american citizen, in fact I don't think you can become one with knowing it.
*zman rages some more*

Aye, they are villainizing law enforcement and trying to make the criminals seem sympathetic.  The media tends to lean liberal, even CNN is about a 3:1 Liberal:Conservative lean.  I think Fox are the only ones who don't do this, though they lean closer to 2:3 (though they claim 1:1, I'm not too sure about that).  I could go on about media bias, but that should be for another topic.

To be honest, it really irks me when people give sympathy to illegal immigrants.

Now, unlike Role's situation, its not really an issue where I live, because most Canadians come in legally. But you see, my FATHER had to go through a bunch of bullshit just to be able to LIVE and WORK in this country, and it pisses me off to a great extent that people from Mexico and other central American countries can just dilly dally into here and get a free pass because they're poor. Yeah. Sure. My dad came from England.

But you know what?

He lived in poverty, just like the people coming in from south of the border. Oh, but since England's not considered a "poor country", he doesn't matter, does he?

If they really want to live here so bad, they should go through all the same damn hoops that my father did. They should work towards permanent residence like my father did. And even then, if they broke the law, they'd be outta here - like my brother almost was (he also is an English citizen) a few years back for refusing to pay his taxes. All I really want is an equal interpretation for everyone - if you're going to open the floodgates, feel free to do so, but you better do it with everyone and not just give a select few people sympathy.

By the way, by letting all the people in freely will NOT fix the problem with Mexico, just move it here. Which doesn't do anyone any good. If you really want to fix the problem, fix it by going to the problem's source. But we can't run Mexico for them, so the best we can do is encourage them to fix it by themselves by keeping a strict and UNIFORM immigration policy.

In the past migration overruled immigration regulation resulting in the establishment of many civilizations across the planet.  You could say illegal immigration has been used by different groups to forcefully or tactically acquire land that belonged to their opposition or neighboring tribes/countries/kingdoms/etc.  In the present we just happen to have a bunch of relatively stable authoritative groups to maintain most of the borders, both natural and declared, existing around the world.

Boom.  Topic outta nowhere.

I'd argue that our borders aren't that regulated, and that powerful interests don't want to prevent illegal border crossings--they want to criminalize those who cross over, and in doing so enslave them.

Salanewt: New patch up; waited until now to make it because it's such a basic change, but it's here now.
February 25, 2020, 03:20:41 AM
Salanewt: Hey! Yeah, we can now make recoil damage in GS. Would you mind if I ask for a link to this video? I'm really curious. :P
February 24, 2020, 09:38:49 PM
Foreclosure: Alas, I still gotta play BoF dragon quarters. I saw on a video you guys can now make recoil damage in golden sun. Is it too hard?
February 17, 2020, 04:54:34 AM
Fox: I guess one thing this game has going for it is the Day and Night cycle.
February 17, 2020, 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.
February 17, 2020, 04:48:20 AM
Fox: (And I only recently got Karn, the fourth PC.)
February 17, 2020, 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.
February 04, 2020, 08:06:18 AM
Salanewt: We're more active on the Discord though.
February 04, 2020, 08:06:01 AM
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
Fox: Probably not?
December 24, 2019, 06:51:08 PM
Luna_blade: I suppose this is the last Christmas of this forum? 
December 24, 2019, 06:50:51 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
