Oh, no problem. I'll probably do a full run through of all the items in the editor after I finish this playthrough.

Never forget why you started playing.

Major Releases v1.72 are UP

This is the result of the first - almost - full playthrough i've managed to do in these 4 years.

The changelog is already on the download page, but i'll paste here a slightly more detailed version as well

Spoiler for Hidden:
Jenna's Inquisitor line loses Volcano, gains Raging Heat
Jenna's Guru line loses Beam, gains Juggle
Raging Heat line and Fiery Juggle are slightly stronger (BP 185 and 155)
Mud's base power down to 80 (from 100)
Vine's base power down to 70 (from 80)
Fury's base power down to 160 (from 170)
Gasp's base power down to 150 (from 160)
Slightly tweaked a few learning levels (mostly MT healing and high-end spells)
Minor stat fixes to many early to mid game weapons
Price tweaks to most weapons
Vial, potion, mist potion are weaker and cost less
Cookie is weaker (6 -> 4)
Contigo, Shaman Village, Lalivero sell Vial
Fixed overworld enemies around Dekhan Plateau
Enemies in Dekhan Plateu, South Indra, Madra Catacombs give more Exp and Coins
Jupiter Djinn in Yampi: -3 SPD (L10 Sheba outspeeds it now)
Briggs, Pirate +atk
Boss Hydra slightly weaker (less AoE, more venom)
-10% Exp/Coins by enemies from Izumo to Magma Rock
Crystal rod drop rate from chimera mage down to 1/128
Agatio and Karst are much stronger
  +30 PP each
  Death Scythe is now Mars-based
  Heat Kiss deals damage (BP 110)
  Stun Muscle x1.5 -> x1.6
  Cage deals damage and Stuns (BP 120)
  Agatio replaces Eruption with Pyroclasm
  Agatio knows a stronger High Impact, loses standard attack
  Karst loses her standard attack for Enfeeble
  Karst replaces Healing Aura for Cool Aura
Flame dragons are slightly weaker
  Flame Breath's BP: 170 -> 120
  Karst loses Fiery Blast, Break, gains Death Scythe, Enfeeble
  Agatio loses Rolling Flame, gains Giga Impact, Debilitate
Fixed a few descrptions and inconsistencies between TBS and TLA

From the top we have:
  • Minor buffs to two of the most underused classes of Jenna
  • Minor nerf to Mud and Vine (especially Mud, he was too good in the midgame). Gasp and Fury followed for power/level ratio
  • Various balance fixes to different parts of the game, be it enemies or item stats
  • A follow-up of the nerf to PP restoring items
  • Cookies nerf: the reason is in the base HP/PP ratio
  • Buff to Agatio and karst lighthouse version, nerf to their dragon version, respectively the easiest and hardest normal bosses of TLA

Almost full playthrough cause i'm not touching again the superbosses: they've been tested way more than other enemies and there won't be balance-only changes for them ever again.

@Varden: please note that i've done a quick check of descriptions in TLA and fixed some, in case you still want to do your own check

Patch is for English version only.

I don't play with the English one (the one i release here) cause I'm Italian and i have my personal Italian rom patched with the mod.

EDIT: this was an answer to a post that somehow disappeared

Hey, so I played through both GS Reloaded mods, and I really enjoyed both of them.

though, to be honest, I didn't play TBS much differently than vanilla up until Deadbeard and Fusion Dragon. With those two, I put Ivan and Mia in the Wise classes for Dual Wishing, Break, and Dull, with Garret and Isaac as Black Knights, Garret with Gaia Blade and Isaac with Wicked Mace and other Cursed Gear. Deadbeard was absolute cakewalk, especially when he ran out of PP, though Fusion Dragon gave me hell until I remembered Tonic could dispel Haunt.

TLA was much more enjoyable to play than Vanilla, however, my party ended up weirdly lopsided. Piers and Jenna were the most useful, Piers being able to take hits and decent supportive capabilities with his newfound power thanks to his new classes, and Jenna being flat out the best character in both vanilla and this mod.
Jenna wound up being a blend of Ivan and Mia, taking the best of both worlds in her Miko classline, while Sheba felt like Diet Mia rather than a better caster than Ivan.
Felix feels like Diet Garet more than Diet Isaac, while Piers is taking Garet's valuable bulk and pumping them to greater extremes and adds in more supportive capabilities with decent healing psynergy, good support psynergy, and Liquifier in his Archon (5 Jupiter 4 Mars ) Classline.

I feel like the Tier 3 Party Heal Psynergies for Heal and Wish cost FAR too much PP for how little they heal relative to the massive HP Pools the characters boast and how much damage endgame enemies deal. I have Ker's Weight, Big Bang Gloves, and a Dark Robe on Jenna for 181 Venus Power in her Guardian (5 Venus 4 Mercury ) and she heals about 440-ish HP with Potent Heal for a hefty 48PP cost. at Lv.48 (829HP being the lowest and 1017HP being the highest) against the Flame Dragons, the superbosses, and Doom Dragon, 440-ish HP isn't enough to really justify 48PP. I feel that 38PP would've been a better PP Cost, and Pure Wish sitting at 48PP would've been reasonable over a tremendous 53PP cost.

Sentinel was a bore to fight since all it did was spam Spark Plasma and Break. Balrog was an interesting battle, but having summons like Zagan, Moloch, and Maegaera under your belt can make Balrog extremely deadly to face. Star Magician was easily the highlight of this mod, as I had to switch around my party and take out the Balls as fast as possible (thank god Fury Ivan has Rolling Fire to oneshot Recovery Balls). Dullahan is too much of a pain to beat for too little reward. Once I found out the Mind Ribbon was a Psynergy Item instead of a "circlet" with massive PP Regen and MaxPP Boost, I just used a glitch to get Iris and call it a day.

Now for the party:
Jenna - Guardian 5 Venus 4 Mercury
Even in this mod, Jenna is still the best character in the game. Like mentioned before, she's a blend of Ivan and Mia, taking the best of both worlds, and then some.
Her final equip set is Ker's Weight, Demon Circlet, Big Bang Gloves, Dark Robes, Quick Boots, Trident, Angel's Ring, and Silk Bustier.
10/10. Not using her is heavily handicapping yourself.

Piers - Archon 5 Jupiter 4 Mars
This mod has done wonders for him. Now he has Classes to actually use his Warrior Stats and equipment, and his stats sacrifice speed for wonderful bulk. I love his Archon class as it has Liquifier for an ever useful Defense Debuff, Dull & Guard to help out with reducing damage, and Boon for emergency single target healing.
His final equip set is Alecto's Mace, Mythril Helm, Riot Gloves, Erinyes Tunic, Ninja Sandals, Running Shirt, and War Ring

Ivan - Fury 5 Mars 4 Mercury
Ivan has ascended from best Support to 2nd Best Mage, and Fury is practically made just for him. Rolling Fire, Planetary, and Thunder Mine make use of his solid attack score, and he boasts Volcano, Plasma, and Ice for fantastic elemental coverage. Atropos' Rod with Selene's Armlet and Dark Robes gives a whopping +55 ElePower to Mars, Jupiter, and Mercury, making his AoE spells devastating. Fury gives him Impair and Weaken, though I feel that Break would've been more useful than one or both of these debuffs.
His final equip set is Atropos' Rod, Demon Circlet, Selene's Armlet, Dark Robe, Ninja Sandals, Golden Shirt, and Angel's Ring (I used cheats for 2 extra Angel's Rings cuz I really love the Cursed Mage gear~)

Garet - Jonin 5 Jupiter 4 Venus
Ah, Garet. How good and useful you are in this mod. With enemies hitting harder, having extra bulk is super handy. Garet has the bonus of being able to hit really hard in return. I made him a Jonin primarily for Impact and Ward, though the stats may have had a hand in my decision as well.
His final equip set is Sol Blade, Warrior's Helm, Riot Gloves, Valkyrie Mail, Ninja Sandals, Sol Ring, and Running Shirt.

Isaac - Shogun 5 Mars 4 Jupiter
In TBS mod, I slapped my Jupiter Djinn on Isaac for Paralyze. Stunning Battle Djinn was a HUGE help for dealing with the amount of damage they could do, and keep them from fleeing. Because of the nifty Ailments under his belt, I had him focus on those, which led me to making him a Shogun.
His final equip set is Darksword, Fear Helm, Terror Shield, Demon Mail, Ninja Sandals, Casual Shirt, and Angel's Ring

Mia - Worldwaker 5 Venus 4 Jupiter
I didn't know what to really do with her, since Jenna exists and does Mia's job better than Mia and then some. Just kinda stuck her in Worldwaker and never used her again except in extreme emergencies.

Sheba - Pure Mage 5 Mercury 4 Venus
She was basically Diet Mia, spamming Wish until I got Isaac's gang. after that, she became my back-up Party Healer in the event Jenna couldn't use Heal.

Felix - Paladin 5 Mercury 4 Mars
He filled the same role Isaac did in TBS, Jupiter Djinn for stunning Battle Djinn. Once that wasn't needed, I genuinely had no clue what to do with him, so he ended up as a Paladin.

I don't think I ever touched the Class Items, as there wasn't much incentive to do so, especially since I needed to make one duplicate of the 3 class items so there wouldn't be someone with a wasted distribution of Djinn. If it were possible for you to craft a whole new Class Item and Class line for it, then that would greatly encourage players to try them out.

All in all, these mods were absolutely fantastic, and the only thing that could make me happier than a Golden Sun 4 would be a balancing mod of similar ideology for Dark Dawn. Though I can understand if you'd rather not touch upon that, since these mods alone took a VERY long time to reach where they are now lol

So I started replaying TLA with this mod under Hard Mode and holy moley is it Hard. But it's hard in a fun way. Happy

Thus far I have yet to hit a painful roadblock, though King Scorpion nearly halted my tracks until I remembered about Djinn. I've been so used to never needing to Unleash Djinn, so having to remember they're always available for use is gonna be key lol Venus Djinni Set

As far as random encounters go, the Trolls are concerning when you first reach them, as they can easily oneshot Jenna & Sheba, possibly Felix too, with a Power Charge. Fight

Unless Inside Air's Rock is supposed to be AFTER Piers, the new enemies there WILL viciously tear through players upon arriving before getting Piers. Those Brutal Wolves truly live up to their name, as two of them tore through Lv.13 Jenna & Sheba with 2 Fierce Fangs to both girls, doing almost 95 damage per Fang. Also the Mimic at the start of Air's Rock simply cannot be beaten upon the earliest arrival at Air's Rock. If Inner Air's Rock is supposed to be AFTER getting Piers, then I'm just gonna have to do without Maha's Djinn Jupiter Djinni Set or the Hypno Sword...Artifact  Sad

Even under Hard Mode with this mod, Tamer isn't worth using at this point, despite its wonderful bulk on Felix, and Pierrot was only handy for Deluding the Chestbeaters (with Felix Poisoning them) + spamming Juggle around Madra to earn both cash and levels. Sad

As things are now, I'm being heavily pushed into using Jenna under Venus Venus Djinni for Cure + Cure Well, Felix under Mercury Mercury Djinni for similar reasons, and Sheba under her Jupiter Jupiter Djinni for Boon, since having one healer can easily cost me a party member or three, and Sheba's been burning through her PP absurdly fast trying to patch up the damage we take.

Um... ...Now that I think about it, Gondowan Cliffs are more dangerous than inside Air's Rock... I might be stuck in Osenia for quite a while longer lol  Sweat Drop

Still gotta take down Briggs before Gondowan, so we'll see how that goes Happy though honestly I'm not /too/ concerned about Briggs, given how much easier the King Scorpion was once I started using Iron Venus Djinni to negate Sand Breath's debuff and for its Sheer Claw to do less than 100+ damage Exclamation

Will give more updates on Hard Mode under this mod as I slowly advance through it Happy
Really loving the sheer challenge it's giving me. It's even more of a challenge than my Karis Solo Run of Dark Dawn where I even beat the Ancient Devil, Ogre Trolls or whatever they're called, and the Star Magician with just her Joy

Finally beat the Air's Rock Mimic. I had to hit Lv.14, put Jenna under Jupiter for Paralyze with Blessed Ankh and Guardian Ring to hit 8 Luck, Sheba under Venus for Sleep, and Felix under Mercury for Cutting Edge. Had Jenna & Sheba cast Paralyze and Sleep respectively to disable the Mimic while Felix did nothing but spam Cutting Edge. Jenna alternated between Impact on Felix and Volcano, and Sheba used Punishment until the Mimic woke up/was no longer stunned.

Visiting Gondowan Cliffs was a good experience. the Monsters there are stronger than Inner Air's Rock's Brutal Wolves (Flash Ant dealt 100+ damage with a Flashing Punch), but not overwhelmingly so. Lv.14 Haruspex Sheba with Blessed Ankh and Guardian Ring has 11 Luck, so I'm gonna be banking on that for the tougher enemies.

Gonna clear out Air's Rock so I have Reveal, Maha's Djinni, and the Hypno Sword, then it's off to take down Briggs. Thanks to Maha's Djinni, I'll be able to stick Felix back in Tamer to toy around with that some more. I still think a new 4th Item Class would help fix any concerns of wasted Djinn distribution. Assuming you can and you do make a 4th Item Class, perhaps you could stick it some place between after the Necronomicon and before Poseidon, so we have ample time to toy around with those classes, and don't have to deal with someone being stuck with a useless djinn distribution.

I've got several notes since the last time I edited this post, but idk if this thread is still active... Um...

Fox: That would be cool to have, yes. Where the text in the ROM is uncompressed. - The huffman compression used in the gba games is not used in the nds game, so perhaps that may be one reason it wasn't done. I think it is some generic compression thingy. If someone did do it (and make the entire ROM uncompressed), perhaps I would be more inclined to work on my dark dawn editor. Hm?
