MOVE THIS TO THE NEWS AND ANNOUNCEMENTS.

I'm giving everyone a warning:  A hacker seems to be going around various GS communities and baiting people into being hacked.  This hacker hacked a few people's computers over in The Adepts of Weyard around the time a prominent hacker that ToK had problems with, Grim Reapist, returned to try and stir up trouble.  Although they are similar, it is unknown if it is the same person.  However, given that the incidents are related both in nature and occured at a similar time, it may be that someone is actively targeting GS Fan Communities.

Guys, we need to be on the look out for ANYTHING suspicious.  I know this is a hacking community, but we're for hacking into the game, not into another person's computer.  There's a few things to look out for:

The bait and switch in question: http://s2.zetaboards.com/The_Adepts_of_Weyard/topic/5086166/1/
The intro topic of the hacker: http://s2.zetaboards.com/The_Adepts_of_Weyard/topic/5084167/1/
Topic the returning hacker started in ToK: http://s9.zetaboards.com/The_Temple_of_Kraden/topic/7202264/1/
Another topic they started in ToK: http://s9.zetaboards.com/The_Temple_of_Kraden/topic/7200139/1/

If you see ANY intro topic with similar grammatical nightmares, any topics that look like outright flames with links back to their sites, or anything that you even THINK might be a trap, stay the hell away from it, report it IMMEDIATELY, and warn other people of what's going on.

This is a very serious matter, guys.  We cannot afford to drop our guard, ESPECIALLY given the nature of this community.

So wait, we can spot them because they use bad grammar, what if they make no mistakes in there text, and these banned people seem like people that just made accounts to cause trouble... or am I missing something? Whos computer has been hacked?

No, this is something in common.  I'm saying that you need to be ware of things like the Bait and Switch.  They posted a link back to their site, and that's how one member's PC got hacked.

It was Alex, I believe.

Isnt there a way to disallow users to post links until say they have like 10 posts, This would discourage people to waste time posting ten times

Atrius'd have to answer that.  I'm but a lowly mook now, remember?

So we're on the lookout for a dood who spells words wrong all the time? Got it! This is kinda funny, a hacking community being hacked. Irony at it's best ^-^

Why is someone hacking Goldensun fansites? It's a bit weird.

It's not just that, though.  If it were just bad grammar, then that'd be too broad.  It's a certain... er, style of bad grammar. BUT, more importantly, it's the context of their posts.  If you see someone make a post like the one in the trap, REPORT THE CRAP OUT OF IT, and warn people not to fall for it.

This is the first time I've ever heard of a hacking community being hacked. It would be funny, but I kind of care about this community already.  I can't be of too much help in catching them or keeping them at bay, but I do have two friends that can hack people's PCs. If anything happens to put this site at risk, I could probably ask them for help. They might think it's fun. (That and they approve of me finally getting around to hacking games...).

I'm pissed off that they would use the anonymous thing on their posts though. Obviously someone with too much time on their hands... anonymous isn't meant to target little communities, let alone ones that hack. It's mostly just a meme too, but there's a code and whatnot to follow, and that guy broke it.
Makes me wonder of the guy is a 4channer.
...Though at least it would have been slightly more amusing if it used l33t.

Huh...?? a computer hacker? Just don't look at me I am maybe a bad english speaker
but it is impossible that I am a hacker and besides about 70% of Filipinos don't know how to use
proper english grammar.

Thanks for the info about the hacker

I'll just jack in my net navi,Megaman.EXE to the net to look for the hacker :)

Hey, don't worry, your grammar is much better than the person in question.  Furthermore, you haven't made any topics aimed at stirring up commotion.  So long you've not done something to stir up trouble, you don't have to worry about being suspected.

Also:  Pffft.  Everyone knows that Blues/Protoman.exe is better. XD

Okay.  I admit it.  It was me.

.  .  .

Yeah, if only it were that simple...

ANYWAY...  That's just wrong.  I mean, I've had my computer hacked twice before, (that damned April Fools thing from last year), but when it gets to a personal level like this...?  I mean, it's one thing to send out a virus ridden file for a game, a movie, or other commonly downloaded thing, but when you make a WEBSITE that's virus ridden, and THEN exclusively posting links to it on sites for a specific crowd, you've crossed another line.

By the way, Role.  I have an idea that might make it to where we don't unconsciously assist said hacker...

You just posted about ALL their tendencies.  Well, if they decide to come here, wouldn't they see that eventually and change their "style?"  What I think is that maybe Atrius, (or whoever the moderator is here now), should send a form e-mail to every member here so that they can get the news without publicly posting, which might allow the hacker to get the jump on more people.  And, since ToK and the other sites have already encountered the jackass, (pardon), they could leave them out if/when they do the same thing.  The reason why I ask this, (besides the obvious), is that people might not see the threads that you and others have posted about this issue.  I, for one, didn't see it for a good 3 days after it was posted!

Just a suggestion...

Well, regardless, thanks for the info.  I'll keep my eyes open for anything related...

Well, if our Admin would actually get on and put this where it's supposed to be, or maybe if my power wasn't taken from me to begin with, this could have been put in an area where people could see it.

If they come and people fall for it because they didn't see this, don't blame me, I'm not the one with power. [/stab]

If I get hacked or a virus, the only person I blame is myself for being stupid enough to click links from folks I dont know or if it comes down to someone impersonating someone else, there new posting habbits should be quite clear..... I dont store personal data and all my files are backed up so if i get any problems.... Reformat and i have a clean system.

I never look at the news topics anyway (and im not the only one), If theres anything important its usually discussed in the chatbox and thus people will see and heed the warnings, if not then again its up to them to make judgments.

Few days away without even signing on, rare for him lol, Lets hope hes just busy

Wow, you're naive.  You think that's all they'll do... just hack in for the lulz.  Here's a hint:  Most hackers DON'T.

Fox: I must say... life can be complicated..... when you have question(s) (via email) ... and it seems like they sort of get ignored. :D ; Fun, (And sometimes, a person may respond, and completely not answer the question.... so like... 3-person conversation.) Hahahaha!!
Yesterday at 07:26:16 PM
Fox: (path) 1 text=(address) char=(address) free=(address) ; << Well, closer to this... but yeah... even if I do choose to have defaults in the code, I could still use this method for overrides.
Yesterday at 07:24:28 PM
Fox: So like (path) 0 text=(address) char=(address) len=(number) ; (path) 1 free=(address) ; Or something. But that's just a quick example.
Yesterday at 06:59:14 PM
Fox: Hopefully. I was wanting to make it so you could put in the addresses/etc. as one of the arguments in the path. Hm?
Yesterday at 03:37:07 PM
KyleRunner: Nice! I hope you'll add compatibility with others games (GS1, Mario Golf and Tennis) soon.
January 14, 2018, 11:40:09 PM
Fox: Okay. Posted (in Downloads section) an initial cutdown version for now, for my text compressor. Basically to separate the code from my Editor for anyone who wants to mess with it. It only supports GS2, because I still didn't add the addresses/etc. for the other games.
January 14, 2018, 05:01:00 PM
Fox: Okay! Going to need to think how I want it to work. Initial thoughts is maybe have a number of arguments in the filepath thing. And have a number of shortcuts (files) to be used as examples. Assuming there are no problems.
January 14, 2018, 10:38:24 AM
KyleRunner: Well... I'm used to editing text ina a text editor, so... yes! Thanks in advance!
January 13, 2018, 11:38:43 PM
Fox: (Text editor = Text Document like notepad.)
January 13, 2018, 11:38:21 PM
Fox: Would you prefer during the text editing in a text editor? (Like what gstoolkit lets you do?) I could probably make a separate tool or something to compress it.
January 13, 2018, 10:10:02 PM
KyleRunner: Ok. Once I finish my Lost Age translation, I'll try a Mario Golf one. Thanks. (But I'll need help).
January 13, 2018, 10:03:17 PM
Fox: If you want to make it "permanent" (part of a hack), then you'd edit code in the ROM that writes to this location of the IDs you'd want to change. (You can find these locations by using a breakpoint debugger like SDL-H or no$gba.)
January 13, 2018, 10:00:11 PM
Fox: Reload/switch = Recommended to be done through Debug mode/warp menu, ofcourse... since doors seem to appear as if they were disabled? ; 03001238:01 and B+Start to get to warp menu.
January 13, 2018, 09:55:39 PM
Fox: @Kyle Runner = It might be, but you'd have to use the correct addresses for Mario Golf, rather than for GS2 as I have it right now. ; @raijinken = Yes. 02000454 = ID of leader. (Change this and reload/switch room you are in, enjoy.)
January 13, 2018, 02:23:29 PM
raijinken: Hey guys, is it possible to somehow change the lead character on the map? Was wondering. I remember there was a cheat to use Jenna, but what if I wanted Isaac, or Piers?
January 13, 2018, 02:10:03 PM
KyleRunner: Hey, Fox *
January 13, 2018, 02:09:37 PM
KyleRunner: Hey, is your text editor compatible with Mario Golf (GBA)?
January 11, 2018, 08:33:13 PM
Fox: But if it isn't an oversight, I still can't imagine it being that useful.
January 11, 2018, 08:28:24 PM
Fox: part, ofcourse.
January 11, 2018, 08:28:15 PM
Fox: 0200274C = Hmm... Stuff happens here when you use Cyclone around bushes. (These cause tile replacements, and setting event 0 to those tiles.) - And I guess this kept here so it can be scanned after battle. (To re-update the map.) So here is my fun thought (assuming if it is even possible, or even convenient if so.) ... Are there any events from other maps that could be disabled do to using Cyclone on bushes + Retreat glitch? I'll need to do some testing to make sure this isn't an oversight on my
