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.

Atrius: @Fox, I tried, but for some reason Mario Golf won't boot, and Mario Tennis crashes when you patch out the text compression, and I'm not sure why...  The normal text loading functions in them are basically the same as the ones in the Golden Sun games.

Drake baku: All of a sudden fox his editor gets errors. When trying to start it, thing worked fine yesterday...

Fox: @Mario Golf/text editing = Nope... And it may be awhile yet. I think I looked into it before... (at least for GS1)... but usually is the case when I come across a particular problem, that it can delay a solution for an extremely long time.

KyleRunner: Fox, what about that tool for editing text in Mario Golf? Didi you finish it? If not, can you make a version of gstoolkit compatible with it?

Fox: I saw we need an event this April Fools/Easter... because two holidays are in one, why would we not want to miss having something special? (Unfortunately, there's no one here to make an event be successful.)
March 12, 2018, 02:18:17 AM
Fox: And since that's the case...  I have thought of another fun experiment idea. - What if we had an auction on who should run this site, and waited for 10 people to bid and also for a bare minimum of 24 hours. Who would bid the highest, and how much would that bid be? - The idea is more for lulz (Maybe for April Fools?), and a theory to get an idea of how much the site might be worth as well.
