Hello,

Now that I have a proper phone I've been playing golden sun 2 on MyBoy emulator, to remember old times  Happy and I just found that you guys have developed such an amazing editor to get all kind of weapons and powers in the game. However, I have downloaded "Golden Sun The Last Age Editor" and I don't magane to load the ".sav" file I have on my phone. It just allows you to load a ".gba" file and, when I do so, I select characters and it just gives me the initial powers they have, the equipement and stuff but they don't appear with their current state (objects, level, djins, etc.) on my save file.

I wonder how could I load the sav file to edit what I already have, rather than starting a new game from the beggining. Or if there is another way to do so, I would appreciate If you could explain. If I'm not explaining myself please tell me.

Thanks a lot in advance!

Atrius's Editor (and mine), only are for editing the game (.gba) itself, with the purpose of making a hack... (And yes, that includes initial stats, but not current stats, since that's player data.)
.sav files, which aren't supported by our Editors, are player data, which is used to store information of a person's progress in the game.

There are, however, other people who have made .sav editors, though. I know of at least two.

P.S. = And it's not The Last Age. (Or well, maybe it is in a way, but not the title.) You can basically ignore this... minor nitpicking. :P

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?
Maybe that's the wrong kind of force. *smirk*

Thanks a loooot!  Mercury Djinni

I downloaded the first Save Game Editor you linked and it worked just fine. It's exactly what I needed. I'm thinking that actually I could use a combination of both editors (yours and this other one) to make the game more interesting  Idea

And sorry for the mistake in the title XD

You are welcome.

Sounds good to hear. However, Atrius and me are two different people... so whatever is meant by "mine" as far as any useful editing could go is a little confusing, considering I've only ever given minimum features like the text editing... which I say is better than Atrius's version since you can search for text much faster, and the text is compressed with char tables rewritten to be properly compressed. (Compressng without doing so, could mean loss of compression... And by "char tables rewritten"... has nothing to do with changing/correcting format issues, but compression the way it is supposed to be compressed.. (as it is and was done. Except I had to code the rewriting of the char tables myself.))  (Referring to my C# editor.)

That's okay. I just found it somewhat (humorous-ish?)

OK not your editor then, but the one in which you contributed ;)

Thanks again!

Fox: Really don't see the point in the Crystal or even the crown conversation, but whatever... (I mean, if you want to do it, then just do it. - Doesn't need to be at GSHC, because there are no longer clan leaders at GSHC.)

squizzy44: We all need to band together to take down Crystal.

Fox: Your clan?  You can't edit it manually, so you have to tell an admin so they can do it. There's actually a topic for when you pick a clan... but uhh... I've no idea if an admin will see it via that, though. (Kain will certainly see id you ping him on GSHC Discord.)

Fox: I still wonder if a Tret glitch for speedrunning exists... I don't think I looked into if the PC was on one of the other layers. (Which basically the second layer edits @-0x200 instead of @-0x100... in the event you are going up (y-axis) out of bounds.) Hm.

Salanewt: I don't know of any, although if there were then we'd have to send it as a patch file. I think someone is working on it at least!

Salanewt: Lol. I mean, I am thinking of adding a banana item to GS so...
March 22, 2019, 09:48:42 PM
Fox: Ooh! Sala's back!  I think he wants a banana.  All this banana talk must have attracted him.
March 22, 2019, 08:56:52 PM
Fox: :O I just notice I have no Coins to buy bananas with! (You know, the coins feature this forum has.)
March 04, 2019, 08:45:44 PM
Fox: Aw.  I kind of want to suggest dressing up in a banana costume.  No wait, that's a bad idea.
