After getting the leather cap from Karis I was just tapping the screen randomly while checking Matthew's base stats. Except, when I exited the status screen, the character select part, I ended up in a battle with a dim dragon. After dying I just ended back at Isaac's house. Here is a link to what images I could get: http://imgur.com/a/qAZV4.
Does anyone have an idea how this happened?

Edit: Just happened again, before talking to Karis, when I closed the menu after equipping the padded gloves. It seems to happen randomly when closing the menu.

Edit 2: Seems to also happen when selecting a menu option. I pressed 'A' on the logbook option and I got sent into another dim dragon battle. Might be happening more often for me since it's being played from a flashcard on a 3ds.

That's cool.

Not sure... unless some code got loaded over top of old code or something.... if you can replicate it and explain how it can be replicated, I might could look into it, though.

Would have been nice to know where you would have been if you had successfully defeated that enemy.  At least to see if this could be useful for the speed-running community or not. (Most likely would have returned to where you were?)

@Isaac's house = Might be based on what is stored as map and door number for when you're defeated... which was probably set way before the glitch.. so might not be related to the glitch.  I'm assuming you got the Leather Cap before Patcher's Place? - Yep. Since it's just Matthew there.

--
I noticed some glitching through emulating on Desmume.. (Not sure if same happens on real handheld.)

Such as when you enter battle and see the PC table on the top screen... there can be an awful palette that's used. (Makes it look ugly.) - I suspect it is the same palette as the screen that shows djinn and has a background for the elements. But I did not verify. - Although, this is pretty rare glitch, so I'm not sure how it is replicated.)

Also, there are places you can get stuck in the collision... (See attachment, although, not sure if you need to pause or not.)

(I use to have the screens above/below, until I realized side-by-side is probably better when zoomed in. :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*

Fox: What value do you see at 08000468? (Or 00000468 in hex editor)  0801319D or 08F9EE50?

KyleRunner: "there is an easy fix by changing a pointer back to what it was suppose to be"... Hmmm... How?

Fox: Bootleg*
July 27, 2018, 10:09:03 AM
Fox: There are two ROMs that can be found on the internet, one may have the MEGAROMs boot load stuff. (So not truely clean.) ... If you get a screen while booting the game and holding L+R (I think it was?), then you know you have it, and your ROM is not truely "clean"... it is unfortunate, but there is an easy fix by changing a pointer back to what it was suppose to be..

KyleRunner: Well... here's The problem that needs solving: my GSTLA translation patch only works on a clean rom, with specific CRC. 
July 25, 2018, 07:59:37 PM
Fox: I am not sure I understand? If there was such a program to "clean" a dirty ROM dump, what exactly would it do?
July 25, 2018, 12:37:42 PM
KyleRunner: Hello, guys. Could someone teach me how to "clean" a dirty Golden Sun rom dump? Is there a program or something?

Luna_blade: Nice to see it is back!
July 23, 2018, 11:01:36 PM
Fox: Yes. I was expecting it to be a little while longer, but it is great to see that Atrius delivered.
