Web Host
Founder of Golden Sun Hacking Community, and programmer of the Golden Sun The Lost Age Editor.

With the help of Charon he keeps the site running smoothly by handling the majority of the coding, and back-end work on the forums & website.  His main job however is the development of the GS TLA Editor.  Being the only person involved in it's creation he handles every aspect of the program's development from dissecting GS's data formats for research, UI design, programming, and anything else you could imagine.

Although he's been programming in various languages since around the age of 10 Golden Sun was his first attempt at any form of ROM hacking.  His other hobbies include drawing & 3D modeling.  He is currently stationed at Eielson Air Force Base, Alaska as a Technical Applications Specialist in the United States Air Force.

Fox: @Gameradar = I like that approach.... 30 second video ad for one ad-free day... as an option.... Interesting? - Of course, keeping to using an adblocker is also an option... but the point is how they made it almost sound encouraging. :P

Fox: Recent research is making me worried that it might not be vulnerable enough to do anything with it. Not absolutely sure, though.
July 14, 2017, 06:12:12 AM
Fox: Well thanks. While it does appear to be a vulnerable glitch, we still need to find a way to succefully abuse it. It's a bit complex, so I'd be amazed if someone actually finds a good method! :)

Ark: Game crash: successful. Shoutouts to Fox for being amazing

Plexa: I'll play around with this stuff on stream in 20 mins or so. No idea if I'll find anything or if I even understand properly what you're doing - but we'll see!

Fox: Initial process of elimination. (When taking into consider if whether you can retreat in a map or not, and if the are contains at least two map code files....) ... I'm left with these to look at: Lemuria Ship, Gondowan Cliffs, Gabomba Statue, Jupiter Lighhouse, Mars Lighthouse, Anemos Inner Sanctum ; Not much room for luck if my hunch is even correct at all... 
July 11, 2017, 08:11:16 AM
Fox: Oh yes... Map code files can be shared across maps, but I don't think the same map code files is used for all maps of an area... So.... I will need to do so testing to verify my hunch about whether NPC Script glitching could even be a thing... or if it is just me imagining things....

Fox: of the commands*
July 11, 2017, 07:41:11 AM
Fox: That is to say... if I recall correctly... that NPC Scripting (idle scripts, I think.)  ... is basically custom code (aka: Not asm/arm/thumb)... and I do believe _at least_ one that commands.... might deal with flags (assuming if I remember)... I need to confirm my hunch, though... but finding tricks to even do script code properly will probably be next to impossible.
July 11, 2017, 07:16:12 AM
Fox: case*
July 11, 2017, 07:16:06 AM
Fox: Wait... If that's the cause... and if the NPC's script pointer ponits to map code data... then.... what could that mean... umm... *confused on whether I'm even onto anything or not. Maybe not.*
July 11, 2017, 07:08:02 AM
Fox: (I mean when loading the Retreat Map after glitching.)
July 11, 2017, 07:05:43 AM
Fox: I guess it is like this? = GS1 will load the objects from the Retreat Map / GS2 will load the objects from the map you were in ....?
July 11, 2017, 05:48:44 AM
Fox: Growth Vines and Frost Pillars, oh my! == Was just thinking of a scenario where you wouldn't have a water adept for Frost, but would need a Frost Pillar to get where you would want.... but eh... maybe I can't think....
July 11, 2017, 05:31:52 AM
Fox: I think Area-based flags are used more.... but Psynergy-related objects can often be in room-based flags.
July 11, 2017, 01:50:52 AM
Fox: A random thought is what if there were ever x/y position values for an object there, that when interacted with, sets a number based on its location... Eh... I have quite the imagination.
July 11, 2017, 01:38:10 AM
Fox: If there is anything, I don't expect much, unfortunately.
July 11, 2017, 01:00:24 AM
Fox: Are there any cool glitches taking advantage of the 0x200-0x2FF flags? Room-based flags that should be reset when switching rooms.  So may have different purproses in different rooms. (I don't think Retreat Glitching and Resetting the game would reset them, though.)
July 10, 2017, 11:37:53 PM
Plexa: If we could find a way to manipulate the retreat pointer then we could get Kite before beating Sol Sanctum :D

Fox: warping to final boss*
