This one:

Back in 2001, he also created one for the Zelda Oracles titles:

I'm just wondering whether these programs from so long ago are still accurate and reliable. And how did he make these programs with the technology back then? Did he really crack the game's code entirely and figure out how the passwords are determined?

I would imagine the games were datamined and he copied the password algorhythmsor something

these games haven't been updated so the codes should still work unless some change to the website somehow threw it off which I doubt

The GS fanbase was awesome to be a part of back in those days, so I would trust something from back then implicitly. >_>

As part of the fanbase back in those days, I can attest to this.
Eclipsing power is, at times, not only the instrument of demons, but also of gods.

Now that you guys mention it, we were pretty great. Oddly inclusive for what is imho a rather niche game

Yeah, we were one of the most active boards with a large user base. I think this board was one of the top ten GBA boards until GS3 came out--top ten here on gamefaqs when you would click GBA back in the day. There was even a social board, but I never posted there.

To be fair, Golden Sun was actually a hit on the GBA, so it was not exactly an obscure game that no one knew of. It was definitely one of the best RPGs on the device, so its popularity at the time is understandable.

The password generator works in that it'll get you items and events that you want (one of them has to be left unchecked, I think the Feizhi event?), but I remember it never accurately giving me the stats I inputted into it regardless of what I did. If you care about stats more than items, just play through a normal GS file and transfer that instead. If you want dual Sol Blades to further break TLA's end game, use the generator.

I've never used a password generator for the Oracle games so I can't comment on that one.
You felt your sins weighing down on your neck.
