Oh yeah, I forgot about this topic...

Anyway, that does seem like a good theory, but I think it might also have something to do with importance/rarity of item (well, maybe not rarity). For example, the Shaman's Rod is an important item, can not be sold, and it can not be re-obtained. The Wooden Stick can. More items will probably have to be tested.

Or maybe it is a combination of the two...

Have a nice day.

While editing items, you can select item effects in the four separate boxes.
Just to clarify, options 0-6 add a static value to the selection, whereas options 7-14 are multipliers.  Currently options are listed on the list twice, you could change the name of 7-14 to make sure people know the value is a multiple as opposed to a static value.

Actually, that's one of the first things that I mentioned, marking which are multipliers and which are just added.

In this thread Atrius asked what the four odd boxes to the right of the enemy group editor are for.  I'm not sure if this has been pointed out yet but they have to do with how the enemies are sorted.  The only combination I've messed around with so far has been 2/0/0/0, which puts the strongest enemy in the center, with weaker ones surrounding it.  I've tried a few others but I forget what the number combinations were, one of the combinations ordered them from weakest to strongest, left to right.

Although it's hardly ideal, F4 puts it into fullscreen.

Just a quick note/request...

I noticed that, even if you set the HP of one of the playable characters to above 1999 when they level up, it hits 1999 and doesn't go any higher.  I tried setting the max HP at 9999, (by editing the HP-per-level of each character), but when I transferred data from GS, Isaac's and Garet's HP values, (which exceeded 1999), stayed at 1999.  Now, my request is this: can we make it possible to edit the max values of something?

Thanks!

Garet can NEVER have as low of a speed as he's supposed to have, the game always gives him at least three at level up, meaning that with 100% Anti-perfect levels, he's STILL way higher than the target.  It's the opposite with his defense - even with 100% Perfect level ups, it is impossible to actually reach his target defense - the target at level 99 is what, five higher than the max possible?

This has nothing to do with refining features, however.  This is something that needs a patch to correct it.  As for your issues with the HP cap, I'm sure that in a future version of the editor, Atrius will have a stat cap modifier, so we can alter the stat caps up to the max possible level for the type of data value they have.

I never mentioned speed...  O_o

That's good to hear!  I was trying to make a slightly different version of my Viros Umbra difficulty hack by using a Final Fantasy-like set of values, mainly for HP, PP, Attack, Defense, and damage.  It took me forever to figure out how I should modify the values for each monster and ability, but then realized that if each monster has a lower/higher attack value, the abilities wouldn't do as much damage, anyway...  I don't know where I'm going with this...  >.<

Anyway, that was off topic...  Again.  I really need to work on that little problem of mine...

This one is serious there is also a problem in the enemy group editor:

           Actually this one will really ruin a day. If you change the leader in a group (that's the first enemy in a group)
           the previous enemy group leader will also change. Examle enemy group 1 has a leader of wild wolf if you change
           the leader in grou 2 into ruffian the leader also of grou 1 will be change into ruffian.

Maybe its nice to fix this because editing enemy groups will be difficult with this.

Also some abilities have the same name like gale(djinn) and gale(psynergy)
Maybe its nice to put (psy) in some abilities or other marks to make editing easy and can reduce error in hacking.

Weird, I never noticed that before.  I'll look into it.

@ i_am_isaac:  Wow, thanks for that!  I was wondering why my putting Star Magician, (a weakened form, anyway), into a Treasure Isle monster group was making him appear in all the groups that had the replaced monster as the "leader."  This explains a LOT.

Either way, isn't this the wrong thread?  This is for making existing features easier to use, such as suggesting a sort feature, to sort existing enemies by various stats.

Basically, for enemies, you'd have:

Sort by:  Index Number, Level, HP, PP, Attack, Defense, Agility, Luck, etc..
and then:  Ascending, Descending

This makes things easier to look up.  Same for Items:

Sort by:  Index Number, Item Type, Attack, Defense


THIS is feature refining.  It has nothing to do with reporting possible errors, there's a thread for that.  As for issues with the game itself, that what you make threads for...

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.
Yesterday at 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.
Yesterday at 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?
Yesterday at 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
