The other day I found this oob stuff in jupiter lighthouse: https://www.twitch.tv/videos/157338573

I've been trying to track down the flag/addresses that indicate this kind of skip could be used elsewhere. My rudimentary brute-force RAM search has turned up nothing lol

The other day (When studying stuff on your last topic), I saw code putting data in the flags as bytes... I thought that was odd, but thought nothing of it...

Now, after thinking about your thing for a bit, it just occurred to me.... that that was the way it transferred the coordinates to the next room.

The flags are at 0x380 (8 bits for X position), and 0x388 (8 bits for Y position)
0x020000B0 = Address of where those flags are if you choose to edit from memory instead of flag menu.


And those are in area based flags, so leaving Jupiter Lighthouse altogether will reset them back to 0.



Map 286 (Mars Lighthouse) has it at 020000A8! (0x340) - Possible to use for a skip?? I don't know. -

286:11 =  Number does NOT get set to 0 after landing. ; Only works with door 11. (So unless you can manipulate the number (Like maybe keep it at 00 00), and get this door some other way, may not be manipulative?) And since the number doesn't reset to 0, Retreat glitch not useful??

Jupiter Lighthouse isn't based on door and simple requires the values to be non-zero. They are 0'd after landing.


Ofcourse, Mars Lighthouse example isn't about cracked ground, but rather falling through the darkness....

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*

Mars lighthouse is falling down after the Sol Blade puzzle. Ironically, that information isn't cleared when you fall down! If you get an encounter after falling down (but not leaving the room) then you get warped back to where you fell down lol

Update: Disappointingly it doesn't appear that this behavior is useful anywhere else. I only found Mars Lighthouse and Anemos Inner Sanctum to have this behavior. Mars lighthouse fails because retreat glitching and falling down sends you to the 0,0 door near Madra while in Anemos you can successfully store information to 0x020000B0 but no room will trigger loading that information.

Maxipotter: I have no idea who MaxiPower is I have used this user name everywhere for at least 15 years O.o   I should really get a more serious one but meh.

Fox: I wonder who Maxipotter is? Why does the name sound too similar to MaxiPower?

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?

KyleRunner: Could someone please create a GSTOOLKIT compatible with Dark Dawn? I'll try to translate that one to my language as well (as I did with the first two games).

Salanewt: Okay, minor announcement I guess. We just looked over some pre-release footage of GS1, and noticed that one of the unused and unlisted animations we discovered in GS2 (and GS1) plays in that footage. "Brine" is actually an early Fizz.
