I have a lot of questions I would like answered, so I made this.

My First question is, I downloaded some Hacks from here and I need to know how do I use .ips files?


Hey there, welcome!

For .ips files, you will need a program that can use them. I personally use Lunar IPS (LIPS) most of the time, but there are other tools like IPSelect that are good too.

Feel free to ask more questions as you have them! If we take too long to get back to you then you can try the Discord for faster assistance.
Oh yeah baby, £ me harder.

Fusion is just a cheap tactic to make weak Adepts stronger.

Yoshi's Lighthouse is a hacking website in progress. Why not check it out if you like Yoshi or the Mario & Luigi games?


Thank you!
I was also wondering if how to get the gstla editor for android.

In the event you only need to patch a single ips file, you don't necessarily need an IPS patching program. Since VBA has Auto-patching (if enabeled), which means that if the ROM and the IPS are in the same folder with the same name, VBA will patch it. (Not on the file itself, but on the copy it loaded.)
. (e.g. gs2.gba and gs2.ips)

No idea. I only built it (gsmagic) with PC in mind.
But the program is open sourced, so if any changes are needed to make it work with Android, then by all means! :)
Just as clueless with Atrius's editor as well.
Maybe when I get another smart phone... or repair the one I messed up probably a year ago or so (probably won't bother? :Shrug:)...., I could probably consider looking into it.... or maybe I wouldn't need those. It's stuff I'd have to figure out.

Refer to Yoshi's Lighthouse for any M&L hacking needs...

Sometimes I like to compare apples to oranges. (Figuratively) ... They are both fruits, but which one would you eat more? (If taken literally, I'd probably choose apples.)
Maybe it is over-analyzing, but it doesn't mean the information is useless.

The only GS Discord servers with significance are:
Golden Sun Hacking Community
GS Speedrunning
/r/Golden Sun
GS United Nations
Temple of Kraden

Can you believe how small the Golden Sun Community is?

2+2=5 Don't believe me? Those are rounded decimal numbers. Take that, flat earth theorists! :)
