Other Topics and the Prerelease / Re: Longing of the Wind instumentation

Damn. Someone ought to pull off something similar to the DKC Remaster, and try using MIDIs and replacing the instruments with the original samples in high fidelity.

Welcome tot he party. That has all the samples. However, a real effort to identify them, or the libraries they belong to, hasn't taken place yet, apart from a single sample:

Welcome tot he party!

Would you consider that sword the Masamune?

This is...hilariously on the nose, like wtf? I thought we'd have some vague links we'd have to prove out, but this is kind of ridiculous. I feel like even the vague parts can be boiled down to "Kato is for SURE either talking about this era or that from the original series."

It's like you can almost play adlibs with this thing and just substitute Chrono series terms for the bolded parts. Yeesh. I wonder if this is like his personal revenge against the cancellation.

Like, if this is supposed to be Phantom:

Looks kind of like FATE? And can this thing at the bottom be anything other than the Dragon God:

Will delete this in 1 week. Went ahead and uploaded as-is because I'm waiting to move for work until after the election (temporarily back at my parents), and things are just too busy right now to get Perfect Dark/Winny/Share EX going to try and find, index, and download the other remix doujins on the Japanese P2P realm right now. It's missing the new CT/CC official releases, too. But it has everything on there otherwise.

Jeez, so it's still updating, These mobile RPGs are like their own little world, separate from everything else. I can't really wrap my head around it. Yeah, anything you can throw out would be cool.

Site Updates / 2020 Update

Lots of exciting stuff below, but as a result of this update, Material Requiring Translation 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, 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, 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[CE]  trig has rescued the old Youtube annotations from the Crimson Echoes Memorial playlist; grab them here[CT TRANSLATIONS]  But that's not all! Turkish, Spanish, Catalan, and Polish translations of Chrono Trigger for SNES have been uploaded here.

[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[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.

[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[2]  Prizvel has made a patch to restore the Wraith with Ghetz's shirt to the Viper Manor sewers; grab it here[CT MODDING]  TheMage and Mauron have brought us this wonderful sprite insertion guide[2]  Mauron's made some significant updates to the Tech Data Notes page, as well as Menu Data. Also check out Vehek's PSX research here[3]  Likewise, we now have a guide on adding the last few enemy offsets as functional enemies! Find it here[4]  Plugin updates! HiTech 32 - The Rest (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!  [FAN ART]  Hit the page and look for new art by: batensan, chrono.source, cym0rg, gabrielf, Sailor Phantom  [FAN ANALYSIS]  New pages! [ Fates of the Chrono Trigger Team ][ Prometheus Circuit (Function) ][ Polis War (Timeline) ]

[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, Chrono Cross. (Don't worry; they've still been added to the encyclopedia.)  [DWELLING OF DUELS]  [ 'Wings that Cross Time' by sigmabeta ][ 'Trial and Errors' by Soniferous ][ 'Singing Mountain' by newip ][ 'Omen of Antiquity' by Careless Juja, Brandon Strader ][ 'Atlantis Burns Under a Lunar Eclipse' by Rifftus ][ 'Queen Zeal's Bedroom' by Team Pixels ][ 'Tango in the Sewer' by Hat ][ 'Time - Lavos - Chance (original - Moiré Effect)' by Katamari

That's all for now. Pop into the forums to see what else you may have missed! And check out that bLiNd Chillopolis WIP in the remixes above; just incredible!

These games are supposedly what became of Chrono Break. Another Eden was written by Masato Kato and contains his vision for the game, while the rest of the Chrono team (Sakaguchi, etc.) ended up putting their ideas into FFDII. Unfortunately, we can't find good plot summaries anywhere to actually theorize what the games would've been if they were still in the Chrono franchise.

The APKs can be found on Google and emulated on one's PC (no need to buy/play them on an Android device, I think...)

Anyone else been following these?

I started getting in on the action and contributed to the February group buy, which is starting to yield protos:

Waiting for the X-box series to come out with a couple Unreal Championship 2 prototypes that'll no doubt yield some unique stuff. Still holding out hope that an old-overworld Chrono Trigger proto will surface.

Haha, just have to ask, is the Spanish version a certain dialect? Al fin hice algun progreso en mis estudios de español, y me pregunto si la traducción tiene unos mexicanismos geniales...I might as well replay the game using that version next.

Oh nice! I forgot, but was this the first time it had been translated to all the other languages (than Japanese/English/French)?

...Man, my memory is completely gone; the English translation used was also the DS Tom Slattery one, right?

While we're on the topic, I've been needing to post this here, courtesy of Cabbusses's Retro Obscurities:

Uploaded for preservation purposes, and if YouTube doesn't like it, they can shove it.

Original NicoNico URLs:
This seems to no longer be present on NicoNico.

A rip of a Brut Press volume from Dec. 1994. Contains previews for various Super Famicom and PC-FX titles.

There's Chrono Trigger coverage in the first third—nothing jumps out visually, but the instrumentation!! There seems to be an actual non-SPU demo version of the Battle 1 percussion, plus the actual SNES songs featured sound rough or have different instrumentation. There is also moving footage of a couple test battles (one of those Black Omen monsters on Zenan Bridge, plus Gato on the Blackbird).

I'll get this uploaded and on the page as well. And on Material Requiring Translation  :o

Question for prizvel: I think a couple years ago, I saved down the ISOs from your site. But is the site offline?

I can host them on the Compendium if you want (Chrono Cross Single Disk RU, Time's Anguish + Single disk RU, Debug Room Mod 2.5f)
