Site Updates / Re: CuteLucca Auctions CT Collection
« on: June 26, 2009, 04:39:23 am »
Im actually sad to see someone sell that collection. If I could I would just donate the money.

Funny how anyone who says that never has the money.

Personal gripes;

Not a fan of the new equipment names. They don't seem in the spirit of CT, and some of them seem too outlandish and try hardy. Also, armors should've been clearly labelled as such, rather than "Inferus" for example, have "Infernus plate" or mail or vest in it same with helmets.

Crono with a tech similar to Braveheart would've been great, I really think he got the short end of the stick. Maybe it's just because I'm a fan.

Weird question;

Why is Crono barely used in the play through, and why didn't he receive any new techs?

Welcome to the Compendium new people, and thanks for the feedback! Darkken, uber job on the sprites as usual, you're our hero man.

As for people like King Guardia and Doan having Time Traveler's Immunity, I always imagined they just ended up in Reptite zoos or something during those timelines once they were Gated in. The Xamoltan might have caught them, but finding a time traveler while traveling through time oneself would be a really "needle in a haystack" situation.

For Crono and Marle, keep in mind that they've been married/together for approximately 5 years at this point. Romantic relationships tend to get less sappy over time, or so I hear...?

I think what he meant was that Glenn and Cyrus wouldn't be unknowns in his era because of the King.  I didn't think about it before but that is a god point to bring up, huge plot hole.

Yeah, not a fan of Andy myself, but aside from the lack of Joel Goddard and Conan/Max banter, the show is largely the same.

By the way, good choice on Crono talking, he finally has some life to him!

Glad you like it :) For those who don't or who find it surprising, here are the main reasons why we made him talk:

1/ He isn't the main character of CE. The game is kind of like FFVI as there's not obvious main character. All the PCs, except Ayla, have roughly the same amount of screentime and importance in the story. So the player isn't really playing "as Crono" this time around.

2/ He is a married man. That's a pretty huge difference between CE Crono and CT Crono, and we had to make him talk to develop this part of his character.

3/ Part of the point of CE was, simply put, to say goodbye to CT and hello to CC. You can't say goodbye if you're mute.

Yeah, I'm kind of bummed out about the complete lack of Ayla screen time, and it doesn't look like she was rescued at all, despite the fact you didn't fight the King. Sadly I'm not digging it so far. It is supposed to get better from what people are saying.

On the the other hand, I could think of a lot better things to spend $150 000 dollars on then a ROM hack. Honestly, I wouldn't even want to put $45 into "the pot" to support "the cause". If we are speaking honestly that is.

Hey, talks are still ongoing.  Let's not worry about any talk of "martyring" anyone just yet.

With the douchebag outted as having lied to SE, and their C n D being written while having the wrong idea bout the project, maybe they'll soften their stance a bit.

I mean, it's like a fanfiction mod of their game.  This isn't a whole new animal like Chrono Resurrection (to any SE who may think that)  It's existence isn't going to threaten the property or their livlihoods.  They'll just be looked at as bullies going after modders by keeping stuff like this down.

Hell, I'm actually more interested in playing CC because of this game, this game would probably earn SE more money rather than take their money.  It's not like, "Oh dear, I played CE so I'll never buy any new SE games."  Actually, the more time people spending obsessing over anything CT-related, the more likely they are to spend money on CT-stuff.

Hopefully SE will understand that.  For now let's try to keep things more mature about SE and be less fanboyish, at least until things are finalized.

Also, our main enemy right now should be that doucehbag, not SE.  We'll have to wait and see how SE reacts to all this news before having a final analysis of them.

Square isn't printing CC anymore, so the only copies of it you'd be able to play you would be getting used. Square would make no money off of that at all.

When you get old enough to go to college, make sure to take some business courses.

I'm quite insulted. I'm 21 and about to be a college senior. I hate when my radical socialist beliefs make me a pariah, but I suppose it can't be helped.

Yeah it really can't, especially when you imply that people working in a creative field should be working for free...

Not talking about a new mod, I'm talking about all the greedy content creators who will flee the industry when we reform copyright law the way it should be. I'm talking about making movies, TV shows, music, and games, in place of all the people who were just in it for the money who are gonna leave.

Come to think of it... you're right! Working for free does sound magical...

What did Chrono and his friends do when they saw the horrible future?  Did they simply accept it as too impossible a task to try and change?  No, the fought to change it- and they accomplished their goals.  It was tough, it was dangerous but by golly, they did it.

You are clearly not someone functioning in reality. Again, comparing real life situations to a video game... pretty laughable. I think you fail to realize while it's all well and good to say "reach for your dreams", the teams "dream" right now is most likely to get out of the situation they're in... Being in a lawsuit with a major corporation, especially involving one of said companies IP's, is not good, it's the kind of thing that changes your life in a horrible way, forever. Maybe Square-Enix's dream is to have it's property not tampered with. And you keep suggesting to call a bluff? How is SE bluffing? They said we will sue you, and it will suck, bluffing would imply that they don't actually have the resources to do so. On the contrary, it would probably take up 10 minutes of their time, and not the tiniest of fractions of their resource pool.

Honestly, if I was in SE position I could see myself doing the same thing.

And to say that Square's "corporate bullying" is getting to them, but to then say;
"If that is your mentality then your mentality is like that of a kid in high school who gets bullied all the time but is afraid to stand up for himself out of fear of being hurt, or like that of a slave who fears the master's whip should he attempt rebellion."

"Mark my words- years later, when you've turned your back on all your work, which has been reduced to ashes while SE goes back to releasing certain games (FX 10-3) only in Japan and acting like dicks all-around, you're not going to be happy about this. You can try to trick yourself into talking about how your 5 years of destroyed work was briefly a "symbol" on some gaming sites and praise yourselves for avoiding the wrath of Kahn/SE and keeping a site safe (whose information could all easily be copied and transferred elsewhere), but deep down inside you'll never be able to forgive yourselves if you allow SE to steal so much of your lives and your dreams and yourselves away from you."

Is infuriating. You yourself are trying to push someone into doing something they don't want to do. You're trying to come off as some idealist shining light in the darkness of corporate whatever, but you're just being a straight up classic hypocrite jerk.

The CE team has gone through enough recently, they certainly don't need to put up with your insults.

Glenn27 can you shut up? Honestly?

  Do you even know how the real world works? You're spouting off about Dreams and Zeal and junk while people who were creating something for all of us are contemplating the idea of getting their lives ruined. FOR A VIDEO GAME! You haven't put in any actual effort to help with the hack, and the lawsuit wouldn't effect you in anyway. Yet you selfishly ponder the idea of someone releasing it on their own without the consent of the creators of the project. Why? Because you want to play it, you've been going to their website everyday, and you've been checking the compendium forums for an update, so you can effortlessly click with your grubby little fingers and reap the rewards. To say that it would be some kind of action against Square Enix is complete and utter bull. You and everyone else here whining and begging to anyone on the team who will listen to release it anyway is just out for themselves. So THEY don't feel like they've wasted their time watching and waiting, rather than actually HELPING. Maybe if all the people coming out of the wood work now too support them helped them in the beginning and actually went out and learned how to sprite or make maps it would've been released already. But you didn't, you just waited.  This isn't a movie where good triumphs over evil, because there is no evil here. It's two sides of grey protecting themselves. Chrono Trigger is owned by SE, if ANY kind of mod or hack is released it is a FAVOR of them onto us. Is there anyone thanking the legal and production staff at Square when a fan work gets successfully released? No. Like a previous poster said, if I had put as much time as they did into the original Chrono Trigger I wouldn't want anyone tampering with it either.

  Grow up, get over it. It's a game, a video game, if THAT is the thing you are most passionate about, out of everything else that could be in your life, you need to seriously sit down and sort your life out. To the entire Crimson Echoes team, and all other dev teams that have had projects halted because of current events know that 100% of the logical thinking people who live in the real world support your decisions completely and whole heartedly.

Dark Serge: I'm going to call it a day and simply agree to disagree on this issue for now. Perhaps I won't hate CC as much if I give it a more recent playthrough and appreciate it for what it is rather than what my expectations were. Fair enough and to be honest, I was planning on doing that anyway because it's series canon. Although you started off arrogant, at least you were mature enough to actually debate with me on the issue rather than spout utter nonsense. I'll respect that much.


*Removed my sig because I feel it's kinda stupid now. I had some fun making it, but it won't do anything but either piss people off or make them a tiny tidbit happy.*

I don't like to drag up things, but I think that's a really big thing of you to do DS.
I was one of the people that thought that sig was kind of backward, like you don't like CT at all. My opinion of you is reversed as of now.

That FF9 font is pretty killer, much nicer than the DS font.
