Title: 2020 Update
Post by: ZeaLitY on September 14, 2020, 12:41:31 am
Lots of exciting stuff below, but as a result of this update, Material Requiring Translation (https://www.chronocompendium.com/Term/Material_Requiring_Translation.html) is starting to break the bank. If anyone has contacts or ideas for getting translation assistance, please reply. Even if we have to death-by-a-thousand-papercuts this thing, it'll be wonderful to start getting some steady, even if microscopic progress. How many secrets still lay in wait for English-speaking fans?! (Also, the albums and doujins update will take longer—VGMDb enabled viewing all works attached to a particular franchise at some point in the last few years, and apparently we're missing like 300+ different fan arranges in the encyclopedia. Life is pain.)

[PRERELEASE]  A truly massive update has taken place on Alpha Screenshot Page (https://www.chronocompendium.com/Term/Alpha_Version_Screenshot.html), the tragically-named repository for prerelease screenshots! We've combed all the great recent scans on Twitter and have expanded and reorganized the page to index them all; check it out!  [MOCKUPS]  Reld has done some fantastic investigative work into the early screenshots and mockups! First, check out recreations of some of the more interesting mock-ups featured on the Alpha Screenshot Page (https://www.chronocompendium.com/Term/Alpha_Version_Screenshot.html), near the bottom. Second, check out the V-Jump video section—there is now a discussion on the probable name of the bridge shown on the overworld. I'd never even realized those Prerelease tombstones had been used on the bridge's field map!  [VIDEO]  Cabbusses's Retro Obscurities has also put up a backup of the Brut Press Volume, December 1994 coverage of Chrono Trigger as well; find it on the page under the Video section!

[TRANSLATION]  Shea Melvin has graciously translated the V-Jump video special on Chrono Trigger! The interview features most of the main developers (including Akira Toriyama) hyping up the game, with most of them talking about the capabilities of the 32 Megabit cartridge. Many thanks to Shea for this; check it out here (https://www.chronocompendium.com/wiki/index.php/Supporting_Material_Translation#Interview_Dialogue).  [CE]  trig has rescued the old Youtube annotations from the Crimson Echoes Memorial playlist; grab them here (http://chronofan.com/Black/Other/Crimson_Echoes_Annotations.zip).  [CT TRANSLATIONS]  But that's not all! Turkish, Spanish, Catalan, and Polish translations of Chrono Trigger for SNES have been uploaded here (https://www.chronocompendium.com/Term/Chrono_Trigger_Translations.html).

[ENCYC]  Many miscellaneous updates have been made, but chief among them are Mauron's contributions to the Chrono Trigger monster pages, which now list accurate weakness/resistance percentages to elements, as well as stamina stats (though most are 10). A page has also been added for the unused Magus enemy. Check it all out here (https://www.chronocompendium.com/Term/Monsters_(Chrono_Trigger).html).  [REFERENCES]  ForTex brought us the news that Another Eden made a field map of a beach that pays tribute to Opassa Beach, from Chrono Cross. Check it out here (https://www.chronocompendium.com/images/wiki/a/a5/OpassaAnotherEden.png).

[CROSS HACKS]  Remi Negest made a patch to fix the Pip element grid issue. Note, it only works on savegames before the glitch has been triggered. Download it here (http://chronofan.com/Black/Other/ChronoCrossPipFix.zip).  [2]  Prizvel has made a patch to restore the Wraith with Ghetz's shirt to the Viper Manor sewers; grab it here (http://chronofan.com/Black/Other/Wraith.rar).  [CT MODDING]  TheMage and Mauron have brought us this wonderful sprite insertion guide (https://www.chronocompendium.com/Term/NPC_%26_Enemy_Sprite_Insertion_Guide.html)!  [2]  Mauron's made some significant updates to the Tech Data Notes (https://www.chronocompendium.com/Term/Tech_Data_Notes.html) page, as well as Menu Data (https://www.chronocompendium.com/Term/Menu_Data.html). Also check out Vehek's PSX research here (https://www.chronocompendium.com/wiki/index.php/PSX_ROM_Notes)!  [3]  Likewise, we now have a guide on adding the last few enemy offsets as functional enemies! Find it here (https://www.chronocompendium.com/Term/Adding_Unselectable_Enemies.html).  [4]  Plugin updates! HiTech 32 (http://chronofan.com/Black/Other/HiTechBeta32.zip) - The Rest (https://www.chronocompendium.com/Forums/index.php?topic=12793.0) (also updated/uploaded to the static webhost)

[OFFICIAL ART]  Acacia Sgt has ripped the source images in lossless PNG for the bonus art featured in the Steam version of Chrono Trigger! We've also added V-Jump scans from the Alpha page where better-resolution art has been located. Check it out! (https://www.chronocompendium.com/Term/Official_Art.html#Steam_Version_Art)  [FAN ART]  Hit the page (https://www.chronocompendium.com/Term/Fan_Art) and look for new art by: batensan, chrono.source, cym0rg, gabrielf, Sailor Phantom  [FAN ANALYSIS]  New pages! [ Fates of the Chrono Trigger Team (https://www.chronocompendium.com/Term/Fates_of_the_Chrono_Trigger_Team.html) ][ Prometheus Circuit (Function) (https://www.chronocompendium.com/Term/Prometheus_Circuit_(Function).html) ][ Polis War (Timeline) (https://www.chronocompendium.com/Term/Polis_War_(Timeline).html) ]

[REMIXES]  First up is OCReMix, but too many remixes have come out since 2016 to list individually here—hit up these chronological CT and CC pages instead: Chrono Trigger (https://ocremix.org/game/16/chrono-trigger-snes/remixes?&offset=0&sort=datedesc), Chrono Cross (https://ocremix.org/game/17/chrono-cross-ps1/remixes?&offset=0&sort=datedesc).
