Metroid Fusion (J) English Easy, Normal, Hard mode saves + Gallery w/8 JP Only Endings

Metroid Fusion (J) English Easy, Normal, Hard mode saves + Gallery w/8 JP Only Endings 1.3c

I just noticed that I accidentally uploaded this to the Switch section. I've taken that one down and reuploaded it to the, proper, GBA section.

Originally uploaded on 10/01/2021:
Yet another alternate version to the 1.3a save file. This one only has the 8 endings in the Gallery that can't be unlocked in the modded English save. The files are cleared new game files, and play the intro cutscene on load. Further explained below:
"This is a savegame for the (J) version of Metroid Fusion. Since the original US and EU releases didn't include the additional "easy" difficulty, its only possible to play that difficulty in the (J) version.
I changed the language switch in the savegame to use the otherwise unselectable english language text.
I haven't tried playing further, but everything seemed fine until the first savepoint.
I saved at the earliest time possible in the game, which is like 2 minutes in."

Using redfalcon's notes for an English code (code below) I made a new save, used the debug menu to unlock the endings, hard mode, then made new clear game files, and changed all the files to english. The result are these Easy, Normal, Hard saves (in that order) modded to the hidden English setting, with the Gallery, and all 13 Endings unlocked. It's now saved at the Ship with a 00:00 time, it will now replay Intro Cutscene. The file select menu is still stuck in Japanese, unless you were to use a patch, and the English code would glitch it up a little on that screen, but once a file is loaded the rest of the game is in English, even without a patch/code. The 2 patches I'm aware of "fusionj-english2.ips" by Grahf, and "MF_J_engInJap.ips" by biospark from [Metroid Construction], do translate the file select menu, though they don't allow access to the Child Mode endings, nor does this save, unfortunately.

Normally, the Japanese version of the game has 2 versions of the Japanese language selectable Japanese with Kanji (Known in-game as Adult Mode), and Japanese without Kanji (Child Mode). In Adult Mode, it's only possible to get the 5 endings which were also present in the (U) and (E) versions of the game, though they didn't have a Gallery to view all the endings that have been unlocked. And the Child Mode has 8 Japanese exclusive endings. However, the hidden English setting is only able to get the 5 Adult Mode endings.

Using the Debug Menu AR code from [The Cutting Room Floor] I set the conditions to unlock all 13 Endings in the Gallery.

Using a RAM map on [Data Crystal] they reference an "Intro story played flag" at memory address [3000015] which ended up being [3000019] in the (J) version, as their RAM map might be based on the (U) version, and this one was a bit offset from all their data points, I was eventually able to get the saves to play the intro cutscene on load. I was previously having issues getting it to load and save the cutscene. It ended up only being able to load it when the file was in the state to load the first objective text, then using memory address data as the CodeBreaker code [33000019 0000] shows the cutscene on load. Then, mashing through the cutscene and objective text to get to gameplay with the code on seems to auto save this flag to the file, reset without manually saving, and it's then able to show the cutscene on load without the code on. If you were to manually save there, then it won't replay the cutscene on load. It also doesn't seem to work on brand new game files, since those files seemingly don't want to auto save at the objective text and a manual save doesn't load it, even with the code on.
