Ok, tell me I'm not the only one who thought this was just plain awesome, who else enjoyed running around as Jenna at the beginning of Lost Age?

Then once Felix joined the team, I was like aww man, I want to play as Jenna.

Then later in the game, we get Isaac's team, and guess what, you still have to run around as Felix.

My point here, is there anybody else here who would like to be able to choose what character they want to run around as on the map, much like in FF games?

I sure would of liked to use Jenna instead of Felix on the map up until Jupiter Lighthouse, then maybe switch to either Isaac or Mia.

At the very least, I wanted to choose between Isaac and Felix. In the end, Isaac was still considered the game's hero, seeing how he was the main recipient of the Golden Sun's power and all.

I thought there was a cheat to let you choose who run around as.   Maybe I have simply remembered incorrectly?
I'm so happy I could just tear out your intestines and strangle you with them!

Well, you can hack the sprite of the character you want into the spot that's normally used for Isaac/Felix in GS1/GS2. That's all, I think.

The only "cheats" I remember were the ones that let you rename everyone. o_O

Like Merc said, I know for a fact you can move the characters around from their normal positions, but I thought I remembered doing something to change the main little dude you run around as, a few years ago.  But if I did it was a while ago, and I could just be confusing GS with another game  :89:

Okay, two things:  First, most FF games do no such thing.  They're just as bad at making you play as the "main hero" as GS.  It's only 3-6 that do otherwise.  It's the Tales of games that have always let you do it.

Second:  Of course we do!  There's just two problems.  First, only Felix and Isaac have the sprites for it.  Want Mia on the world map?  Well, prepare to have it look silly/stupid when she tries to do things like go up stairs or climb a ladder.  Because there's no sprite data for it, it tries to call something that isn't there, and thus graphical glitches occur.  Second, there is no support in the code - you'd have to write it all from scratch, and that'll be a pain and a half.

I wanted to play as Jenna...In my perspective I wanted to listen to Jenna's theme play when battling EVEN if you had Isaac or Felix in the party.

I just wish they gave Mercury Lighthouse a better theme....ANYWAY......
Yes. It's true. I'm attracted to Males. Now you can all rest easy now that I confirmed it. Now we can all get back to our merry little uneventful lives now that I spouted this pointless fact that I spouted.

Have a GREAT day~

The problem with it is that it isn't the Mercury Lighthouse's theme - it's shared with a couple other places.  It just... doesn't have its own theme, sadly.

Aqua Rock is one, just saying.

I wish Saturos's theme can be used in battle.

But it has an iconic use, while the others are simply events.

The Generic Lighthouse theme is used in several locations, which is why it's usually just listed as "Lighthouse Theme" instead of Mercury Lighthouse specifically.  Both Mercury and Babi lighthouses use it, for example.

That theme rocks the house! Saturos's theme really sets up the feel for the boss battle on the lighthouse! Playing as Jenna feels like the prelude really, which is what it is. The "game" I believe, starts when Idejima washes up on the southern continent. You play as Isaac in the first game and Felix in the second game. I would have preferred to change sprites to Isaac, but we all can't have the game image our version of perfect, unfortunately!"

I agree: There should have been a choice between Isaac and Felix.
