Atrius: I'm trying to fix the site, but it might take a while.

It seems the SQL database had grown larger than our hosting company allows.
I've cleaned out all of the unnecessary log data to get it down to an
acceptable size, but haven't received a response as to why normal
functionality hasn't been restored yet.

Good point... Can you remind me what the difference is?

I'm assuming they're basically the same, but referred to in different ways.
-The CPU that executes the instruction set.
-Files that require the instruction set. (But isn't the instruction set itself.)
-Etc.

May the force be with you!
Shoo! Why does it smell in here?
Maybe that's the wrong kind of force. *smirk*

the little v is a reference to a whole CPU architecture/serie. Like the X in a intel architecture number X000.
ARM7TDMI is one of the CPU's in the v4T set. Very old.
This is a good list:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_ARM_microarchitectures

Oh and apparently, the CPU of the DS is even older than the GBA in comparison.
ARM7TDMI: 1998 - GBA release: 2001
ARM946E-S: 2000 - DS release: 2005.
Damn.

Thanks... Although, in the original post (previous page), I wasn't referring to it with the v, however, that is nice to know about.
I was just simply referring to it as ARM7/ARM9, because that's the way I've seen it labeled. Any of the more extreme specifics, I haven't looked into yet. (Don't really need to know it for hacking, I suppose... I think terminology has been one of my weaker points so far...)

Damn.
The GBA was released in Japan on March 21, 2001.

Interesting... However, that may sound reasonable....
-Cut costs by using an older system you were already testing before the new architecture...
-The GBA could have been made before release.../ Millions of GBAs could have been manufactured before "release"....
-And nobody can know when new bugs are introduced in new versions... (Of course, the GBA does have bug(s) anyway, but...)

There's a Python class that has people using an older version of Python instead of the newer one... so it can be thought similar to that as well.

And to an extend, that is not really bad. Especially in the CPU world there are to many different terms going around, often synonymous or way to detailed.

Yeah it is. Most console also use this principle. (PS3 excluded they had their own special CPU made, which turned out to be a very awkward thing, but getting a hella lot of topic here).

Update: I'm almost done with a very small assembly demo.

I agree...

WORD is probably one of the big ones... Some groups think it is 16-bit, others, 32-bit. - Really dislike how that terminology works...

Pfff yeah what nonsense that is.
Especially in x86. Every instruction is bound to a word size, but some can deviate. Sad

KyleRunner: The "Start In" field is not editable... I'll try making new shortcuts
May 08, 2018, 09:51:08 PM
Fox: If all else fails, you canmake new Shortcuts to do the same thing.
May 08, 2018, 09:49:53 PM
Fox: Export Properties > Shortcut (Tab) > Target / Start In ; Target (for Export) should be: (filename) 0 , and for Import: (filename) 1

KyleRunner: I can't change the path in properties menu...
May 08, 2018, 01:27:19 AM
Fox: You may need to edit something in properties, though... so it uses the exe file in the same directory.
May 08, 2018, 01:24:59 AM
Fox: It is suppose to be a shortcut, yes.
May 03, 2018, 11:48:05 PM
KyleRunner: Fox, the "export" function in your text editor is just a shortcut... Could you please fix it?

Drake baku: My feel as well, I posted a little as well since my return, but silence was all that followed... At least the forum is a great source for data when hacking GS/ GS2, currently looking for something I have read a long time ago cause my PP recovery psy is not working
May 01, 2018, 09:58:04 AM
Fox: I am thinking a lot of this might be because of Discord?
May 01, 2018, 09:56:08 AM
Fox: Yeah, this forum is more dead than ever before.  February and April have 0 new topics. (All other months prior have more.) And March has lowest number of new posts. (It'd be dumb to count the very first month this site was created.)
April 25, 2018, 09:02:13 PM
Fox: Yes. The best tool is a hex editor. Well.... VBA, VBA-SDL-H, no$gba Debugger, GBATEK, and my documentation.... to use these to learn how the code/data works. Best method because it maximizes your editing ability... and then there is my program gsmagic that I was working on. Still in its early stages, though. (Even after year(s).)

April 20, 2018, 02:46:36 PM
KyleRunner: Atrius!!
April 19, 2018, 11:29:46 PM
Atrius: @Fox, I tried, but for some reason Mario Golf won't boot, and Mario Tennis crashes when you patch out the text compression, and I'm not sure why...  The normal text loading functions in them are basically the same as the ones in the Golden Sun games.
