Hey all, how has it been?

It seems even as the years go by I'm still drawn back to this place. I came here excited to get into the editor, make some cool hacks, learn some code... yet, it seems in the end I didn't really do any of that. Instead, I just posted. I was always interested in the idea of hacking, but somehow I never really got into it. So I gave my thoughts and read the thoughts of others. And then, eventually, I left. I don't know when or why, but I did. And still, I feel drawn back. Maybe it's the forgotten aspiration to hack a few cool tweaks into Golden Sun... but, of course, that's not it at all. Instead, it's the nostalgia about the experiences I shared with everyone here, and about the relationships which formed between us that, I hope, weren't entirely one sided. Names and faces have changed, some have come, others gone, but I still remember some of the original names: Atrius, Jamietheflameuser, Salanewt, Role, Charon, Charleysdrpepper. And, there are more, I'm sure, so forgive me if I don't have an entirely perfect memory.

But, if we're honest, I probably wouldn't expect your memory of me to stick. I only have, what, 174 posts here? And somehow I think this forum is so important? The majority of my posts were in 2010, and most of the veterans have posts in the thousands, so what makes me so special? I've had far more posts in other forums, but I haven't felt the same way with them, so what gives? Maybe I feel such an attachment because this forum is a relic from before I moved from a big city to the middle of nowhere. Honestly, I don't know at all. In fact, this whole post is just a recycled version of previous posts I've already made in the past trying to become a regular again. So... we'll see if history repeats itself again.

Every time I try to clean up my bookmarks I take a look around to see if anyone's still hanging. And, surprisingly, here you all are, if the memories weren't an excuse enough to keep me from erasing this site.

I don't know if I'm back to stay, or if this will be another unfulfilled excursion to the GSHC, but for now I'll be here.

Oh hey, welcome back! I may as well mention that four of the six original names you listed are different right now (I'm Salanewt for reference, and I might be again soon enough). Been up to anything fun lately? It's nice to see you around again.

I remember... Still afraid I might get the names Matrim and Menaus mixed up.
I would be the "Charleysdrpepper"... Since around 2011, I went by Teawater here, and in 2014, I became Mr. Foxy as I am now. (Well, Fox.) Fox is supposed to be temporary.

Heheh... You reminded me of this song:

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.

Been up to anything fun lately?

Right now, not much. I just finished high school this year, and now I'm working out exactly what happens next. I've gone through high school on the supposition that I'd go straight to college and get a degree in electrical engineering. Now, while I still have an interest in a career in that field, I've also taken a comparable interest in economics and in becoming an entrepreneur. Before that, though, I should also mention that I'm Mormon (specifically LDS), so I'm certainly going on a mission. For now, though I'm helping with my family-run business, so that'll give me some time to sort a few things out.

Yep! I guess that just leaves Jamie? Wonder if he'll come back and say something... Although, I haven't seen much activity from him lately. :/

But I do trust that he is definitely one of those that would revisit at some point. (Most likely.) Edit: Oh wait. He was last active yesterday? Wasn't he? XD Nevermind, then.

Fox: I must say... life can be complicated..... when you have question(s) (via email) ... and it seems like they sort of get ignored. :D ; Fun, (And sometimes, a person may respond, and completely not answer the question.... so like... 3-person conversation.) Hahahaha!!
January 15, 2018, 07:26:16 PM
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.
January 15, 2018, 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.
January 15, 2018, 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?
January 15, 2018, 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
