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.

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

tino_animate: Hello everyone. Ive just recently replayed Golden sun and TLA. I got really inspired and I'm interested in creating a prequel of Golden Sun. Unfurtunatly i know bery little on how to do it bit im willing to learn how. I need a few people to help me. I'm sure we can create a very well story based on what we know of the games. Anyone interested?

AZVRE: Im pretty okay, what about you?

Fox: I think the nine is doing a cirno on me, though... Anyway, how is everyone doing today?
October 16, 2017, 01:12:20 AM
Fox: onesixtwo*
October 16, 2017, 01:12:00 AM
Fox: Okay... Meanwhile... ah... 162 being a number that has made itself known to me.... I look at the relationships of the numbers.... 162  1+6+2 = 9 ; onesizetwo = alphabetical order = 9 characters ; Distance apart analysis: os = 4 = 1[6][2] , st = 1 = [1]6[2] , ot = 5 = [1][6]2 ; ost = original sound track?
October 15, 2017, 06:31:17 PM
AZVRE: ah okay :D i thought i caused some trouble
October 14, 2017, 07:49:16 AM
Fox: Oh i know... You were messing with yours, and the description says mine. It's kind of a funny bug. :P
October 13, 2017, 08:18:31 PM
AZVRE: I did not edit your profile tho. Just to erase that confusion ^^"
October 12, 2017, 04:49:56 AM
Fox: e.g. this art = http://forum.goldensunhacking.net/Themes/Jupiter/images/catbg.gif (etc.)
October 12, 2017, 04:48:58 AM
Fox: I have a question: Where did the art for the headers come from? (Like the backgrounds to each of these things... "Affiliates", etc... Asking just incase it inspires me to do something... but if Charon made it, then that's cool too.
October 11, 2017, 04:23:02 AM
FoxWas thinking about having something for the editor anniversary, but I believe I had to change my mind....
October 10, 2017, 12:58:36 PM
Fox: That's alright. ;       @AZVRE's profile: "Current Activity:  Editing the profile of Fox." ...Eh... That looks weird.

Atrius: Sorry about that, the auto bot detection is still working, but it also requires an admin to visit the site regularly.
October 04, 2017, 04:17:40 AM
Fox: Yeah, it does bring a small amount of activity. Not good quality activity, but it's still activity, nonetheless.  Now if we can get them to randomly post pictures and vdeios!
October 04, 2017, 02:10:48 AM
Majora: If nothing else, I like how they're copying the content of real posts at random. Interesting to see how they adapt to seem more authentic
October 03, 2017, 08:29:38 PM
Fox: medico6601 = Most likely another bot. :(
September 26, 2017, 03:32:24 PM
Fox: by ten* Excuse me.
September 26, 2017, 03:32:12 PM
Fox: Oh yes... Also multiply all levels by two. (So actually, an adept will have levels of 54, 3, 2, and 1, rather than 5, 0, 0, 0.... if going by those.)

Fox: ...I mean the theory also saves space on the Status Screen.
