Atrius: I'm trying to fix the site, but it might take a while.

It seems the SQL database had grown larger than our hosting company allows.
I've cleaned out all of the unnecessary log data to get it down to an
acceptable size, but haven't received a response as to why normal
functionality hasn't been restored yet.

I was looking for the sprites of Hydro's and Lunpa's map from TLA. No result...
I guess I took the picture earlier (for my map) from GS wikia http://goldensun.wikia.com/wiki/Hydros#Story...
But I noticed the heads of the party members overlap with the map. So I thought: "There are probably some clean sprites of these maps."

Does anyone know where I can get them?
I checked http://www.goldensun-syndicate.net/sprites/ and http://www.spriters-resource.com/game_boy_advance/gs2/ already.

It is not a big problem, as I will rip them straight from the game by using the Savestate Encyclopedia, but I think it is strange.

I'm also wondering why nobody ripped the nothern reaches yet... It isn't on any minimap also.

I have now ripped the sprites using the OAM viewer.

I also noticed two other things:
Why it was probably not ripped before:
The maps are sprites. And all the rippers who use Layer disableling may not have been able to get clean rips of these sprites (because as said before the heads are in front of it).

And my new rip reveal another unseen landmass of ancient Weyard!

Last thing: I'm asking someone to contribute these to some kind of sprite database.

...yes. I mean not seen because someone's (Jenna) head is in front of it.

(how do I post images using [img]?)

It may not seem like it's that much, but every pixel might contain a whole city. Especially since we don't know both maps are on the same scale.

Shoo! Why does it smell in here?
Maybe that's the wrong kind of force. *smirk*

So I just finished trying to recreate the Northern Reaches by changing colours and stuff... (from the orignal 8100x8100 rip map)
It looks @#$%, but it gives us an idea how it looks. Idea

The problem is that even though we have this map, we still don't know how big the total North is.

B.T.W. I keep forgetting that the middle continent (the seperated one on Hydros' map) is actually Indra and NOT Lemuria.

Fox: I am thinking a lot of this might be because of Discord?
May 01, 2018, 09:56:08 AM
Fox: Yeah, this forum is more dead than ever before.  February and April have 0 new topics. (All other months prior have more.) And March has lowest number of new posts. (It'd be dumb to count the very first month this site was created.)

Fox: Yes. The best tool is a hex editor. Well.... VBA, VBA-SDL-H, no$gba Debugger, GBATEK, and my documentation.... to use these to learn how the code/data works. Best method because it maximizes your editing ability... and then there is my program gsmagic that I was working on. Still in its early stages, though. (Even after year(s).)

April 19, 2018, 11:29:46 PM
Atrius: @Fox, I tried, but for some reason Mario Golf won't boot, and Mario Tennis crashes when you patch out the text compression, and I'm not sure why...  The normal text loading functions in them are basically the same as the ones in the Golden Sun games.
