I just want you to know how happy having the final psynergy learned at 42 makes me. Matches the actual length of the game much, much better. That change slipped past me in earlier version notes.

I really had to. Not only to avoid the endgame grinding to dullahan, but also because the power/level ratio of base power psynergies decreases after lv ~35 in vanilla, while unleashes spike in power.

V1.71 is on the way and will see a lot of tweaks to classes, mainly stats, with 2-3 psynergy sets affected.
Also includes tweaks to a few psynergies and pieces of armor (5 to 10 each) and I finally decided what to do with Cosmos Shield.

UPDATE: v1.71 is up.

Changelog:

Many class tweaks: see class doc, linked from the opening post of this thread
Items: Tweaked Xylion Armor, Luna Shield, Flame Shield, Cosmos Shield, Iris Robe, Titan Gloves, Greaves, Silver Greaves
Other minor fixes to equipment
Aura series, Dragon Fume, Searing Beam, Spark Plasma, Tempest, Scourge, Thunderhead, Dullahan are stronger

About class and psynergy changes (on the doc Blue is for improvements, Orange for worsenings):
Every mage's WRD dropped by 1 tier or more to put the max at 115%, then i started to make tweaks to even out stat totals.
After that the most significant changes were due to specific class comparison: I compared all the mages' classes capable of MT healing and tried to make the sum of damage + healing as similar as possible. Miko with Arcanist, Jenna's Guru with Druid, and Pure Mage, Guardian and Incantatrix together. Those comparisons caused the psynergy changes listed in the changelog. The most notable one is Aura, which is A LOT stronger (like +40 BP to the 3rd tier)... The only way I had to bring Incantatrix up to the Miko's level (and still wasn't enough, that's why the Miko's PP multiplier dropped by 5%).

Also, both Guru had to become stronger (they were the worst of the duals), so more PP and a slightly better psynergy set. Jenna's inquisitor lost raise for impact to avoid having all her 3 duals capable of reviving.

About equipment: Added minor bonuses to the very underwhelming luna shield and flame shield. Titan Gloves now boosts Venus Power by 30 (+5) cause a venus only mage lacks a non cursed staff and has to fall back to gaia rod. The other are boosts to warrior-mage hybrids. Xylion armor boosts power by 25 (+5), Cosmos shield brings a boost to Jupiter Power AND max PP and this allowed me to switch the Greaves' EPower bonus to Venus. Iris Robe and Silver Greaves are minor changes: -5 atk and +5 Me Power respectively.

UPDATE 2: TLA Patch reuploaded, i forgot to update the descriptions for the 3 shields i tweaked.

Hey Caledor,

Where is the doc located? Can't seem to find it.

Thanks!

The doc is the class chart, linked from the first post of this thread


UPDATE: Another walkthrough has started and I already had to stop before Dekhan to fix enemy groups. In the area around Dekhan's entrance you can encounter drone bees, trolls and skeletons, which are enemy that belong to the Madran half of Indra (after Dekhan), which is clearly wrong. From the next release, enemies around Dekhan's entrance in the Dalian half of Indra you'll encounter the enemies you're supposed to, like punchy ant, wolves and bats

Howdy all,

For (long)ish reasons I played through The Broken Seal with a different hard mode mod, but I'm not liking the version that that author created for The Lost Age.  Sad

So I think I'd rather check out GS Reloaded for The Lost Age instead (though I have played Caledor's old mod circa 2015). That presents an issue for me with transferring data to The Lost Age since I don't want to replay TBS again.

Would any kind soul be willing to share their clear .sav file from GSR TBS? (One with all djinn, extra psynergy items, all events done, etc.). Password works too, but I presume that is more challenging to type up.

Alternatively, are vanilla clear .sav files compatible? Would I miss out on any mod unique items this way?

While you'll never miss out on exclusive TBS items cause there aren't any, you will miss out on the modified stat growth of the characters, like PP and especially Luck.

So here's my endgame save from TBS played with my mod. It's as good as a normal run can be, it has all the important lategame stuff, characters are at a fair lever for the reunion, and carries the stat boosting items (i use them in TLA after i decide on the endgame class setup) for maximum freedom.

PS: passwords become trivial once you figure out how to use the golden sun passwords tool and VBA's memory viewer. Google it, download it and read the Readme. It will teach you how to save & load a dump of the password in TLA and save you from inputting it manually

Beautiful. You're the best Caledor!

EDIT: I gave updated details on why I'm switching mods midway on reddit if anyone is curious: https://www.reddit.com/r/GoldenSun/comments/93bx8k/mods_reloaded_or_fallen_star/e3hs2k7/ . It's more about the other mod, so I didn't want to quote it verbatim here. I'll update it again with my thoughts after I finish GSR TLA. I gave you a shout out for your help.

EDIT2: Btw Caledor, I didn't receive the bandit encounter. No biggie, but fyi to anyone else wanting it, keep that in mind.

@Apprentice57: sorry about that, but i think you can still fix it by editing the .sav with a save editor (there's a checkbox to tick) and update the password in TLA before reunion.

@YoungLink4. Thanks for the report, I found a few other issues in TBS though, so it might take a while to release a fix

Ok so it's totally a side effect of porting the advanced reviving patch from TLA to TBS in v1.70

I might need to do that part again from scratch so in the meantime please downgrade to v1.68 from here: goo.gl/2gvKmR

BTW this also implies that the bug is TBS only

Patch for TBS updated to v1.71a, which fixes the Cure Poison bug (couldn't heal poison in battle).

The bug happened cause the advanced reviving function spilled over on the cure poison effect function, which is right after it, overwriting its first 2 instructions. The bug was fixed by saving some space in the advanced reviving function, which allowed me to restore the lost instructions.

I couldn't replicate any of the issues in TBS with the Crystal Rod. So i'd say try patching another clean rom and see if it works.

Mud in indeed repeatable instead, guess I forgot a flag of some sort when i swapped it with Chill. I'll have to investigate cause that obviously shouldn't happen.

Hi Warden. That doesn't happen on my copy so please try a different rom and let me know how it goes.

Anyway, v1.71a for TLA is up and fixes the mud bug reported by Supremezero

Hi Warden. That doesn't happen on my copy so please try a different rom and let me know how it goes.

I ran into the same issue as Warden when playing through.  The issue itself seems to be some kind of fatal error and I'm able to get it to occur consistently by having enemies use Smoke Bomb or Weaken so far (only just made it to Goma Cave in TBS).  I'm wondering if it's applicable to any type of debuffing ability.

I've repro'd this across three different TBS ROMs.  Curiously, playing the un-patched ROMs is no problem—I'm only seeing the issue occur when playing a patched version of any ROM.

Hope this helps for now.  Happy to provide any additional detail as needed!

EDIT:  Tested a couple of different emulators and I think the issue is isolated to mGBA.  I can only repro the problem using that emulator—all others work just fine.  I'll post back if I find anything different or new.

I think literally everyone here uses visual boy advance either the old one or the vba-m port, at least on windows

Omx7: A shame that I only recently discovered this website. Hopefully, we see Golden Sun 4 in the near future.

Fox: Golden Sun Slacking Community = I like that, Misery! Perfect April Fools joke?

Salanewt: Oh hey Atrius, long time no see!
August 12, 2019, 11:37:45 PM
Fox: (Someone else discovered that, not me.)
August 12, 2019, 11:33:42 PM
Fox: So um. It looks like abilties in the class editor are being put back in as a byte for GS1?
August 12, 2019, 08:02:58 PM
Fox: Also, it seems most of us have moved to the Discord. In case if you were wondering where the forums activity went. Maybe come by and check it out. But it is just a suggestion, you don't have to.
August 12, 2019, 07:57:02 PM
Fox: I figured that was a possibility. If you are guesting, it is hard to know how frequently you check back. It's great to hear from you, though. :)   What have you been up to?  Is Forgotten Dreams still being worked on, or has that been cancelled? (I'd guess you don't have much time for it. It's been years since we've last heard about it.)
August 12, 2019, 12:48:12 AM
KingAmiti: Still great work Atrius :)
August 11, 2019, 06:45:03 PM
Atrius: This place was a HUGE part of my life, and even though I don't have the time that it really deserves to take care of it, I will love it forever, and never forget about it..
August 11, 2019, 05:16:34 PM
Atrius: If anyone wants to make a replacement site then go for it.  Although I plan to keep this place up for the foreseeable future, it isn't really maintained anymore.
August 11, 2019, 05:09:10 PM
Atrius: Sometimes he comes by and looks around without logging in.
August 08, 2019, 11:52:33 AM
Fox: Does Atrius still come here? He hasn't logged in since last year. Maybe it is time to create a replacement site so we can have our full encyclopedia... Then again, I'm too lazy. Especially to get all that done by myself. :/

Salanewt: Oh, yeah there isn't an animation overhaul for GS1 sadly.

ryancaesar12345: GS2 Animation Overhaul w/ Baseline  ips patch in golden sun 1?
July 03, 2019, 12:03:06 AM
Salanewt: There actually is a Jupiter revive... if you're using the Animation Overhaul patch. I think Caledor made a standalone patch for GS1 too, but you'd have to ask him.
July 02, 2019, 07:34:13 AM
Fox: So like... (just a thought)...  If we designed a script to compare times for speedrunning something... goalChance represents stability (I think?) ; If it is 100%, answer results in infinite, which means you can't have 100% stability. (Meaning you'd basically be skipping all item drops/etc.) 
July 02, 2019, 07:06:08 AM
Fox: (I still want to make sure the equation is correct, though... as it did include some guessing.)
July 02, 2019, 07:04:47 AM
Fox: Was thinking .... tosses = ln(1-goalChance) / ln(1-chance) = "chance" being a single-toss percentage probability (0.00 - 1.00) , goal chance being if you did more tosses...   So that's an interesting logarithm.  Just came up with it after some research/thinking... and could maybe be useful for general use.
June 25, 2019, 02:51:42 PM
ryancaesar12345: jupiter revive animation any?
June 24, 2019, 08:05:17 AM
Fox: Such a patch would mean you need to be careful with item drops, coins, exp, etc. Because those things would then no longer be an infinite supply.  Whether or not one uses it depends on what they want to do with it.
