I can see why others might've been disappointed, if they'd been looking forward to the time Alex finally showed his hand...but I thought that ending was PERFECT for him.  I mean, Alex was cool and all...but he spent basically two entire games freeloading off of what everyone else did.  He...

--------------------
1) Has Saturos and Menardi do most of his dirty work for him, never even bothering to help them with their fights against Isaac and co.

2) Abandons Felix and co. the moment he realizes that they can't do everything for him.

3) He attempts to steal Piers's ship; then runs away the moment Piers gets back

4) He later threatens Felix and co. to hurry up and light the lighthouses...except, he can't actually do it himself. Instad, he has Agatio and Karst drop everything they're doing to sail AAALLLL the way to Champa; all because he can't do his own bullying.

5) Tells Agatio and Karst that he'll back them up against Isaac and co...then turns tail the moment the two parties actually meet.

6) Never attempts to help anyone light Mars Lighthouse.
--------------------

IMO, the ending is perfect for him.  The guy goes out exactly the same way he came in; TALKING a big game while doing absolutely nothing.

And what really made it perfect (and hilarious)?  The Wise One dropkicks him out of the ending while doing the EXACT same thing to Alex that Alex had been doing to everything else; speaking very politely to Alex while insulting him at the same time.  And somehow, the Wise One does it without even being that mean about it.

I personally LOVED the scene; but I can see how it might've rubbed others the wrong way.. What do you all think?

Daddy Poi: I'm having a thought. So I know Atrius's editor is slow at saving sprites.... So I've been thinking.   I am considering another console program.  This time, for importing and exporting sprites/animations. Image files (for sprites), binary files (for animation data), and maybe binary or text files for Settings. Would certainly be cool if it works out. - Console programs are fun, when you can (at least temporarily) cheat out making a full interface editor for them. =P

Daddy Poi: Tried to list those in order of importance, but anyway....

Daddy Poi: GSHC, GS Speedrunning, /r/Golden Sun, GS United Nations, ToK.  Sixth one is border-line I'm not sure.

Daddy Poi: (low as in <100)

Daddy Poi: So while there are quite a few GS Communities out there. There are only up to maybe ~6 Discords worth even the consideration of joining, I think. Most of the rest of them have a fairly low member count. (Of which I can tell?)

JupiterDjinn: Just got the reply. Ok my question is: how can I get the tea editor on Android, because I already have an emulator. But no computer.

Salanewt: Nice work hiding the searchbots Atrius!

Salanewt: I was wondering when I said that stuff! May need to work it out with Kain.

Daddy Poi: (The simplest being to not accept char IDs pass 255, I think.)
19, March, 2020, 05:33:15 AM
Daddy Poi: Heheh.... I'm just testing. You pretty much gave it away. Hahah. It seems to look fairly convincing, but I'm sure there's an easy solution to preventing it.
19, March, 2020, 05:28:50 AM
Atrius: Whelp, there it goes... Just what I didn't want.  Have fun with that I guess...   
19, March, 2020, 05:20:25 AM
Daddy Poi: So like. Replace the "e" with another "e"? Alright. Gotcha.
19, March, 2020, 05:04:41 AM
Daddy Poi: Good work.

Atrius: Nah, any member could change their name to what I did, there's a trick to it.  I just fixed it so that now the Cbox will use your new name if you change it though, so... That part of the problem is fixed.
19, March, 2020, 04:41:53 AM
Daddy Poi: For which? It may be that normal users can't change their names to used names, but admins can?
19, March, 2020, 04:39:57 AM
Atrius: Sorry if the Cbox keeps breaking, I'm trying to make that be less of a thing.
19, March, 2020, 04:02:04 AM
Daddy Poi: Looks like ID Fraud. You're under arrest. :D  Oh wait.
19, March, 2020, 03:57:56 AM
Atrius: Yup, that's a thing.
19, March, 2020, 03:57:08 AM
Atrius: Just testing something, for science.
