Hello, hackers :)

Me and Sagie from Sunrise are going to do a Golden Sun marathon on Saturday for Extra Life.

Extra Life is like a gaming marathon to benefit Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. Last weekend, thousands of gamers worldwide played games for 24 hours to raise money for Extra Life: Save the Kids, all of which went to Children's Miracle Network Hospitals all around the world.

We are going to do our bit too: from 5am to 5pm CDT on Saturday (10am-10pm GMT) we will be racing to see which of us can complete the first Golden Sun game fastest. This is not a speed-run, we're just ordinary folks, but we'll be racing and trying to raise money for these kids.

Please consider donating to this cause, and checking out our race on Saturday. You can donate at the link below--the suggested donation is $1 an hour, so just $12. It's tax-deductible and all of it goes to the kids. You can also check out our Twitch stream when it goes live Saturday morning. We'll upload everything later too for anyone that misses it.

To donate see our Extra Life page,
To watch us on Saturday here is our Stream.

Even if you can't donate, please help us by sharing this info with everyone you know, especially other GS fans. We'd love it if you'd come watch our stream and cheer us on.

I'm sooo going to check this out!

Do you have a turbo controller? Might want to get one, for the prologue, since you will be mashing the B button to skip dialogue.

Great, I hope to see you there.

Actually we're skipping Vale and Sol Sanctum, for the sake of trying to get the rest done in 12 hours XD Or at least as much as we can.

We are planning to keep the fund raising going by tackling TLA in 6 hour bursts. This time we want more people to join us and stream along side. We also want to donate to a different cause and are discussing who.

If anyone is interested you can join the discussion here: http://s7.zetaboards.com/GoldenSunrise/topic/9196064/1/

Otherwise once everything is decided I'll swing by again to let you know.

We decided to raise money for Médecins Sans Frontières (Doctors Without Boarders) who are an independent humanitarian medical aid organisation. They are committed to providing medical aid where it is most needed, regardless of race, religion, politics or gender and also to raising awareness of the plight of the people they help. You might have heard more recently about the work they're doing fighting the Ebola outbreak.

The plan is to invite everyone to "run along" with us as we play Golden Sun: The Lost Age. We will be racing to beat the game in a number of 6 hour bursts. Starting on the 22nd of November from 9am-3pm CST (3pm-9pm GMT) though these times may change slightly.

We want as many people to play along side us (streaming if possible) as we can get. We ask that everyone taking part donates at least $5, but anyone can watch along even if you can't donate. We're going to have a big skype chat with everyone whose playing (streaming or not). Those that want to transfer data from GS1: we will be providing our passwords (approx. lvl 25), you can use your own, but for fairness' sake please do not use data with characters higher than level 30.

Also I've volunteered to go a bit further to thank donators: those that donate more than $10 (whether they participate or not) will be sent a specially designed thank you card along with stickers to commemorate your contribution (provided they are willing to give an address, which will not be used for anything else I swear).

If you want to take part please either pm me here or email goldensunriseadmin@gmail.com with the name you have/plan to donated under, you're twitch/skype account and an address if you want a thank card. We'll get you on the list and send you updates on this event including future dates. I personally promise if you email us we will not use your email for anything beyond the scope of this event.

I'll keep dropping by with updates as they come.

You could also suggest Post Office Boxes (P.O. Box), if people feel too afraid to give home addresses... that way, I think your privacy can still be maintained... It might be possible to get the stuff in the PO Box to be re-directed to your home, but don't know, or don't remember what I read once. ; I think PO Boxes cost money, however.

Remember kids! Before you go on that interview, remember to wash your hands in teawater! *Coughs on hand* (Excuse me, I just coughed up a little teawater, so they're still clean!) You wouldn't want that hiring manager to be unimpressed.

May the force be with you!
Shoo! Why does it smell in here?

Hmm, I wouldn't really know how to set that up, I could look into it, but there's the added issue of sending stuff abroad, I'm based in the UK.

Me neither, just thought it might be worth mentioning. Just in case. (Although, the pricing may make it a bit of an inconvenience. Not exactly sure of the prices, but this one shows it in the 3-digits in British Pound...)

Oh, this is really nice! I would definitely consider donating if I weren't broke. And having fun is definitely a good way to raise money for charity (and getting others in on the fun is even better). I might try to figure out this streaming business, but I'm going to be pretty busy for a while.

So yeah, I hope this charity event goes well!

Oh yeah baby, £ me harder.

Fusion is just a cheap tactic to make weak Adepts stronger.

Yoshi's Lighthouse is a hacking website in progress. Why not check it out if you like Yoshi or the Mario & Luigi games?

Even if you can't donate it would be great if you came and watched to support us, if you can.

If you need any help with streaming: I'm no expert, but I've worked out the basics.

Even if you can't join this 1st session one of us could always transfer our save file (we're streaming using the visual boy) and you might be able to join on a future week.

So just a reminder:

-This is happening on Saturday at 9am-3pm CST, if anyone wants help working out what time that is for you let me know.

-If you want to play then you should donate $5 between now and then and also let me know your twitch and skype accounts so we can add you.

-If anyone wants a thank you card please donate $10 any time in the lead up to the event, during or for the week after and some how get your address to me, via pm here would probably be easiest. (I'll try to circulate a mock up of the card later today)

-Please everyone: come and support us if you have time on the day, even if you can't donate.

So far we have 5 people who want to play, others are waiting to see if they'll be free, lots of people have shown support though and will be watching us.

CST = Central Standard Time?

My time zone is EST (Eastern Standard Time), so for me, I'd probably add an hour? Whether I at least visit on the day, is unknown, but there's a likely chance I'll at least take a peek. Even if as a guest/not logged in.

Yeah it's +1 hour for you :D

Sorry about the links, I copy/pasted the post from another forum that shortened them, fixing now :)

I've done a mock up of what the thank you card might look like:

Front:


Inside:


If anyone wants to provide a cute GS picture to go inside the card please post it here or pm me. Sagie, who is better with the words will be telling me what to write inside soon XD

Any feedback is welcome.

KyleRunner: "difficult thing about the army": I'm very good at taking orders, so I don't have issues with autority or discipline. The most difficult thing is to be away from my family sometimes. I lived an entire year away from my son, so I'd say that was the most hard part by far. Now it's great!

KyleRunner: Well, it was a destiny kinda thing, but I was very happy when I decided to join. It was just like I thought it would be (not in the beginning, though). I'm very pleased with my decision.

Fox: That's awesome!  Trying to figure what question I want to ask Something about how you felt when you made the decision to do the army, and whether it was different than your expectations/etc.

January 25, 2018, 09:56:19 PM
Fox: Hard to explain without a diagram or something... but I could decide on that later. Right now, it turned out I dreamed of something! Something to do with going into the dark dimension... and to go between light and dark, required some energy (energy sphere/warp portal?) to be on... I forget most of the details of the dream now, but it's like you could get trapped in the dark world. Er...
January 25, 2018, 04:56:04 PM
KyleRunner: Can't understand... but... nice!

Fox: Third approach idea = Scan char tables and set up an array that helps to quickly jump over bits that are scanned in the char tables.... to kind of mimic an actual tree a bit better/ and reduce unnecessary scans.).... (untested, but what to know what it's speed is like.)
