I agree with VardenSalad that decreasing Lucky Medal drops would be bad. Perhaps additional shop items later in the game could help with the too much money problem.

The more i think about it, the more it seems i won't ever reach a satisfying solution.

Coind drops from enemies are already extremely low from the western sea onwards, changing prices will only give minimal results overall (cause you increase the price of free stuff as well and you always get 75% of that back when you resell), and i think i'm out of space in shops: I already added zodiac wand in Shaman village, Kikuichimonji in Contigo and Viking Axe in Prox.

I might have 1 rusty weapon to reassingn, and i'm thinking of using it on the Lightning Sword: this will probably give the best results out of any other change i can do since it's a net -13k coins.

I'll probably still do the price rebalance cause until now i always winged it and following a function seems more proper.

EDIT: Other things i'm considering: make Ker's Weight forgeable from Darkmatter, swap Laevateinn and Rune Blade, put the first in a chest in magma rock, the other from mythril silver (to space them out more).

This is all minor stuff though: the change i feel the most it should be done is to have a lv ~37 jupiter mace. But to do that i also need another lv ~33 mace. I can make the latter and upgrade the Hagbone mace. Maybe upgrade Thanatos for the former?

Anyway, i think i'm running out of items i want or need to change.

Are status effects from weapon unleashes luck-dependent? Aren't you basically RNG-ing twice at that point?

yes and yes.

Statuses are effects in the editor, and they're shared by abilities: djinn, unleashes, psynergies, items are all "abilities".

Still, most effects from unleashes are not that important (the boss is usually immune to the effect), i wanted people choose between damage from unleash or the debuff from EPAs like odissey.

The problem is not the time it takes for a single playthrough. It's the ideas that pop up in my head while i'm doing one, cause they force me to start again. Changing character growth forces a restart, so does swapping djinn, weapons, changing healing effectiveness... basically any change that isn't about endgame balance only. I think i've started a  TLA playthrough at least ten times in those 3 years, and each one of those could've been the last one. Yet sometimes i had to restart from TBS.

If you're looking for testers or other help, I have some time to spare. Might make things a little easier.

Thanks for the kind offer, but i really don't want people to play the mod only for the sake of reports, or it'll feel like a chore. I think you should play it if you want to enjoy another run, not only for the sake of feedback. Also at this point the feedback i need the most is my own lol.

I'm going to play it either way of course, just wanted to offer the help :D

I'm encountering a problem with Golden Sun Reloaded and I'm hoping I can at least alert people to it or can help me troubleshoot.  I primarily use mGBA for emulation and I'm trying to play Reloaded on it.  It runs phenomenally until a stat debuff happens, the game freezes up and I can't continue play.  It happens 100% of the time, no matter who's side the debuff happens.  I first encountered it in the 3 Thieves fight when one of them used Smoke Bomb.  It happened again when I attempted to cast Poison on an enemy.  It also happens when Ghost uses Impair, but not when Ooze uses Sticky Goo.  I can't progress without worrying about being unlucky, but I imagine that this will continue and make some bosses unable to be defeated, as they'll just freeze the game before I can do it.
I swapped over to VisualBoy Advance to bypass this, as I don't seem to encounter the problem then, but it runs very poorly, I'm not sure if it's my settings or what.  I have audio lag, where sound effects are delayed, but I also have audio speedup at random intervals.  Everything also sounds very choppy, and visually mGBA looks a whole lot better, so I'd prefer to use it. 
I use a US/Europe ROM, and I'm on a Macbook Pro 2012. 
The Reloaded hack is great!  I just can't play very long due to the possible bug.  Any ideas?  I hope people are still active on this thread.

Given your hardware no Gameboy Advance emulator should have lag or audio trouble.
It is likely your setting in VBA that make it behave strange.
Make sure "Options>Emulator>Synchronize" is on as well as "Options>Frameskip>Throttle>No Throttle".
For the visual look, check the "Options>Filter" menu out. As well as "Options>Video>Render method".
With the filters you can apply a few effects the whole of the screen, like scanlines or smoothing out.
When looking at render methods, make sure VBA uses one that your system supports well and full. If you have screen tearing make sure Triple Buffering is on in Render Methods.

Hope that helps!

In addition to what Luna said, if nothing works try with an older version of VBA. I never liked the releases from 2.0.0 onwards and i'm still using the 1.8.0 myself. As for the stat debuff thing... i'll probably look at it when i'm done with the current TLA playthrough.

Thanks for the help.  I've tried an older version of VBA, it was 1.8 I believe, but the audio issues got worse and worse no matter how I played with them, but they synched correctly at least.  But now it's heavily artifacted and sounds terrible.  I've tried troubleshooting as best I can, but no avail.  When I tried the latest version of VisualBoy advance again, it just crashes when it tries to load any ROM, I don't know what's up with that.  Runs great on mGBA still, but I keep encountering the bug.

I'm doing a few tests with mGBA and it looks like the issue does not happen on TLA (trying both v0.63 and v0.71beta on Win10) Could you please confirm this? If positive the solution might be closer than what we think.

EDIT: Or... try the ips patch i've added. It must be applied on top of the latest reloaded patch for TBS and it should somehow fix the glitch. Now i just need to find out why (lol) and if there aren't other issues.

That little patch worked like a charm!  I was able to test it by casting Poison on the enemy party and by also having a Ghost cast Weaken on my own party, both times it would freeze previously but not with this patch applied.  I can test TLA later, but I'm a little busy at the moment to be able to sit down long enough to try some things.  Thank you so much for the rapid help, I'm so excited to keep playing now!

Glad it works but keep your eyes open for other strange happenings though. What the patch does is literally bypass a jump (instead of doing A -> B -> C, it makes A go straght to C) and ATM i have no idea why it was coded with the double jump on the first place. It could be either a dumb mistake of mine that is ok to fix or something that i shouldn't have touched.

I used to get audio issues with TLA as well but I switched to VBA-ReRecording on Windows 10 which works perfectly.

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.

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.
June 24, 2019, 07:55:01 AM
Fox: (High enough being based on the area you are in.)
June 24, 2019, 07:54:02 AM
Fox: I had a thought today. What if I look into making a simple patch just for lulz.  One that works the same way as using Avoid, but it lasts from start to finish, and can't be disabled.  Avoid only works if your levels are high enough, though... so thought is to keep that as is.

Salanewt: Although in the case of Wish, you could probably just use Breeze instead.
June 23, 2019, 08:44:36 PM
Salanewt: Yeah, it's a messaging program sort of like Skype. I find that it's much easy to walk people through some of the basics of assembly, since that's what you'll need for most animation hacks.
