Hi,

I was wondering if there is a compiled topic for where data/code lays in the rom.
I this is what I am looking for?

This is for the GS2 ROM? The mention of GS3 is irrelevant for this document, right?

EDIT: I also read that the source for the editor was released at some point, but I was unable to find it.
Where would I go about looking into that?

Thanks,
ayah

Yep! That was like one of my first hacking docs.... and eventually I created one for GS1/GS3... links to those are also in my signature.
Of course, the first real game I've actually did extensive research on was Superstar Saga, but that was when Salanewt and I were making topics at YL for each thing... later, some PIT/BIS...  So didn't really use a Google  Doc for it until much much later. So at this point, it seems fair to say that I'm most knowledgeable on GS2's data when it comes to data in games.

Atrius made his program open sourced starting with 0.5 Alpha, that can be found in the News & Announcements section of the forum. There was a point in which I tried to modify his editor a bit... etc.) But anyway, ever since then, I have discontinued my own work on his editor... and have started my own. (The plan is my own will also stay open-sourced, so don't worry.)

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*

Ohhh in News and Announcements.
I was searching the Editor section and even googled v0.5, but just could not find it.

I take it your Editor is still in design stage.
There is no repository up, yet?

There's a GSHC Discord. I usually post updates/versions on my gsmagic program there when I have something to say. (I can go on long hiatuses sometimes.)
I did post one or two version on this website, though.
It's a bit of a mess, so I'd like it to be thought as nothing more than an experiment/alpha versions for now.

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*

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..

MaxiPower: Hello World

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?

Atrius: @Fox, yeah... I was expecting it to take 2 weeks at most...

Luna_blade: is it normal that I can see all clans?
July 24, 2018, 08:25:41 PM
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.
July 23, 2018, 02:30:46 AM
Majora: Thank you for getting the site back online!
July 21, 2018, 09:19:06 PM
Salanewt: Time to upload that "EXP gain when KO'd" patch I made a month ago.
July 21, 2018, 09:18:48 PM
Salanewt: Oh hey, the site's back up!
