Happy Japanese Dark Dawn release date day everybody!  *pulls out the almighty ban hammer, and drops it on a desk in front of everybody*  Now that the game has officially been released I'd like to remind everyone of the usage of [spoiler] tags on these forums, as well as general courtesies when it comes to spoilers.

Spoiler etiquette/rules

- All spoilers should be placed inside of spoiler tags
- If you're creating a topic for discussing something that is a spoiler, warn people by adding "*Spoilers*" or something similar to the beginning of the topic title
- Don't talk around spoilers outside of spoiler tags, Example: "Wasn't it cool when that guy did that thing to that other guy who turned out to really be a you-know-what?"
- When in doubt, spoiler tag it

How to use spoiler tags

- [spoiler=reason]Content[/spoiler]

This is the basic form of the spoiler tag note that setting a reason is optional, and the reason itself should never actually be a spoiler.  Let's look at an example:

[spoiler=chapter 8 of wizardyguy's Harry Potter fanfic]Zombie Dumbledorf kills Harry Potter's distant cousin's room mate's ex-girlfriend's uncle.[/spoiler]

which gives us this:

Spoiler for chapter 8 of wizardyguy's Harry Potter fanfic:
Zombie Dumbledorf kills Harry Potter's distant cousin's room mate's ex-girlfriend's uncle.

When to use spoiler tags

So what would qualify as a spoiler?  Well, this topic is kind of fuzzy different people have different ideas of what constitutes a spoiler, but as a general rule think major plot points, places, people, or special items/abilities that might have been a bit surprising/unexpected when they're revealed, and might ruin that feeling of surprise for someone else if they learn about it too early.  If in doubt you should treat anything that hasn't already been revealed about the game in the previews as a spoiler!  It's much better to err on the side of caution, and mark something that isn't a spoiler as one, than to not mark something that is.

I will be enforcing the use of spoiler tags, as well as keeping spoilers out of topic titles.  Most infractions will just result in a verbal warning, but if I see multiple continuous infractions from the same person it may result in a temporary ban.  This will be effective for spoilers relating to Dark Dawn until further notice, it will be at least several months after the release of the game before this policy is no longer in effect.

Does anyone else have anything to add to this?

Salanewt: Oh, yeah there isn't an animation overhaul for GS1 sadly.

ryancaesar12345: GS2 Animation Overhaul w/ Baseline  ips patch in golden sun 1?
July 03, 2019, 12:03:06 AM
Salanewt: There actually is a Jupiter revive... if you're using the Animation Overhaul patch. I think Caledor made a standalone patch for GS1 too, but you'd have to ask him.

Fox: So like... (just a thought)...  If we designed a script to compare times for speedrunning something... goalChance represents stability (I think?) ; If it is 100%, answer results in infinite, which means you can't have 100% stability. (Meaning you'd basically be skipping all item drops/etc.) 
July 02, 2019, 07:06:08 AM
Fox: (I still want to make sure the equation is correct, though... as it did include some guessing.)
July 02, 2019, 07:04:47 AM
Fox: Was thinking .... tosses = ln(1-goalChance) / ln(1-chance) = "chance" being a single-toss percentage probability (0.00 - 1.00) , goal chance being if you did more tosses...   So that's an interesting logarithm.  Just came up with it after some research/thinking... and could maybe be useful for general use.

ryancaesar12345: jupiter revive animation any?
June 24, 2019, 08:05:17 AM
Fox: Such a patch would mean you need to be careful with item drops, coins, exp, etc. Because those things would then no longer be an infinite supply.  Whether or not one uses it depends on what they want to do with it.
June 24, 2019, 07:55:01 AM
Fox: (High enough being based on the area you are in.)
June 24, 2019, 07:54:02 AM
Fox: I had a thought today. What if I look into making a simple patch just for lulz.  One that works the same way as using Avoid, but it lasts from start to finish, and can't be disabled.  Avoid only works if your levels are high enough, though... so thought is to keep that as is.

ryancaesar12345: hi guys i have new update in Golden Sun 2 Lost Age Revise Mod.ips try this. :)
June 24, 2019, 01:54:16 AM
ryancaesar12345: where's that link?
June 24, 2019, 01:53:56 AM
ryancaesar12345: i have no account in discord.*
June 23, 2019, 08:44:52 PM
Salanewt: Although in the case of Wish, you could probably just use Breeze instead.
June 23, 2019, 08:44:36 PM
Salanewt: Yeah, it's a messaging program sort of like Skype. I find that it's much easy to walk people through some of the basics of assembly, since that's what you'll need for most animation hacks.
June 23, 2019, 09:39:10 AM
ryancaesar12345: discord? im not good in asm or assembly.
June 22, 2019, 09:37:26 AM
MaxiPower: gpnna update my thread on progress of my character art if anyones interested. :P
June 21, 2019, 07:51:44 PM
Salanewt: Hey there! Animation editing can be tricky, but I can share some notes with you if you pop in on our Discord. Are you good with assembly?
June 21, 2019, 02:59:40 PM
ryancaesar12345: and how to change a death curse turn in hex editor?
June 21, 2019, 02:50:00 PM
