As you all know, Atrius' Golden Sun Editor allows to change innate psynergies in TLA, like Move, Retreat and such.

What some people probably don't know is how it handles that: it completely rewrites the portion of the code that assigns innate psinergies with a new functions that loads them from somewhere else in the rom. This happens the very first time you hit the Save button on the editor, whether you changed innate psynergies or not.

The bug is in that function: while trying to link back to the original code it skips 1 instruction. This causes the text in the game to load at the slowest speed when you start a new game. It is fixed by changing the bytes at 080ADF26 from E011 to E010.

EDIT:
1) this (extremely minor) bug will be fixed for the next version of Reloaded
2) this function is also what breaks an italian rom. The BL's bytes found inside it are hardcoded but the function the BL targets is in another place in the italian rom. This makes the game freeze in a black screen at boot, before the nintendo screen. I can't believe i finally found the cause for that issue. I think it's been a nightmare for at least 7 years now (can't tell when i started modding anymore) on my italian rom.

Salanewt: Updated it to provide more info that I forgot to mention.

Salanewt: I'm still trying to iron out IQ 2 but I'm pretty sure it's entirely random targeting.
October 13, 2018, 03:16:29 AM
Salanewt: Oh yeah, I posted some more info about enemy IQ.

Luna_blade: Though Momo rings a bell it seems I came here after you left
October 11, 2018, 12:49:41 AM
Fox: (If that makes sense.)
October 11, 2018, 12:48:33 AM
Fox: Yeah, I guess so.  More just saying that's a good place to get answers to GS related questions at the moment.

Crystal Sonata: I did before, but I guess I could try it again
October 11, 2018, 12:41:32 AM
Fox: Not much at the moment. This forum seems pretty quiet. Perhaps you'd be interested in joining the Discord for GSHC that seems to have more activity?
October 10, 2018, 11:16:53 PM
Crystal Sonata: Any projects going on? I need a distraction from the daily grind and I'm interested in hacking GS again.
October 10, 2018, 10:02:53 PM
Fox: Thanks, and good to see you too!
October 10, 2018, 10:02:10 PM
Fox: A few people I'm sure... Most likely the regulars of the past. Such as Atrius, Charon, Role, Salanewt....
October 10, 2018, 03:11:17 AM
Crystal Sonata: I find myself wondering who still remembers me here. Obvs you do (Good to see ya Tea)
October 10, 2018, 12:46:11 AM
Fox: On second thought, it might be because you haven't posted much as Crystal Sonata.
October 10, 2018, 12:41:12 AM
Fox: And your intro isn't that bad. - I imagine most people would say the same about theirs?
October 10, 2018, 12:39:39 AM
Fox: :O - You've been gone so long, I think I forgot you were Momo.  Interesting.
October 09, 2018, 10:23:39 PM
Crystal Sonata: I just revisited my dark past on here and ouch. Someone delete that introduction thread please, the cringe.
October 09, 2018, 08:26:11 AM
Crystal Sonata: Aaaaand, she re-appears yet again. My life keeps dragging me away from the internet sadly.

Luna_blade: haha oof.
