Chrono Trigger DS Analysis / Re: My Thoughts on CTDS
« on: April 22, 2009, 08:40:14 pm »
As for the time in battle...I'm pretty sure you can set it up to be on Memory so that your most used actions in battle will be right there each turn & even whenever you enter a new battle...That's what you're supposed to really make use of if you're going Active over Wait...

And I do take advantage of that, but it doesn't really help the touchscreen buttons. My beef is mostly with after you pick what you want to do (attack/magic/item), the list of monsters (or characters) to do it to is like a four corners thing, when the original was like a vertical list. Also, the monster selection buttons are smaller and slightly moved away from the attack/magic selection buttons. I would have liked it to be a bit more intuitive for quick touching, is all.

Really that's the only problem I've had so far, I think. And I only notice it because you battle so often, but I level up a ton before going anywhere new (not into speedrunning RPGs) so I battle a whole lot.

I play on Wait, without menu memory, just because I like to be able to take my time. Like you, I have a tendency, of getting at least a couple levels ahead of where I need to be. Then in most normal monster battles, I just spam the A button and have everybody regular attack. I do like using the touchscreen to get to menu options faster, and just as a different option for choosing attacks and what monster to attack...

It's extremely disappointing to go through all this thread and see "attachment deleted by the admin" on every post for 5 pages between pictures... That being said, some of the ones still up are quite good.

But look at Serge. 5'11 or something and 128 lb? I'm 5'8'' and 123, so that might not be saying much...

Holy crap. That boy needs a sammich.

3 day lag time double post??

I debated on getting a DS, and then when I was looking at games on eBay and saw a new version of CT, that pretty much sealed it for me. Got a nice DSL. Unfortunately, I'm waiting for another copy of CTDS, as the first one I got was a cheap China ripoff that corrupted save files. But eBay got me my money back, so I'm not too irritated. Before the save files become completely f*ed up, I was able to play a decent bit and got to right before Tyranno Lair (love the DS sleep mode). I thought the arena was pretty cool, kinda like a CT themed pokemon.

Other DS games I have: Tetris, Ninja Gaiden, and Star Wars: The Force Unleashed. Tetris is good if you like other versions of it. There's some new game types that add to playability. Ninja Gaiden, I haven't gotten too far into, but it's similar in graphics to the Xbox version (NG, not NG2), but slightly dumbed down for the DS. Controls, almost entirely through the touchpad, are kinda difficult to get. Force Unleashed is very straight forward and lacking in challenge (you can't walk off ledges; many battled can be won by just spamming the lightsabre button). If your a Star Wars fan, I'd go for the game on another system.

I've also got a DSTT card coming so I can use my DS with homebrew organizer apps and such.

Thanks for the welcome, fellas. I have the CE demos. DLed them a couple months ago, although I haven't finished them yet. Looking forward to the release. RD has also moved from "someday" to my to do list. I also plan to wander around and see what else I can find in the labs... Free time during finals will have much from the Chronoverse, I think...

That is one of my favorite BJJ motivational posters... although to be honest, I can't say that I ever saw the spelling error before... :D

And there is no such thing as a Judo chop.

I would love to see CC make it to the DS so I can play it without buying another system.

At first I thought maybe that this was gonna say that SE had made a link to the Compendium on a Chrono section of their site, but now I'm scared...

I downloaded the sample chapters a little bit ago, but I read through them today. They are very well done, and even if Square doesn't give the go ahead for publication, I hope you at least release it as a fanfic pdf or something.

I was debating on buying a DS, but as soon as I found out about CT for it, the debate went out the window and it became a matter of "when".

Normally I don't make these "hey, look at the newbie" threads, but thought I would this time. I've lurked around here a bit, but never dove into the boards too much. I was reading the DS spoiler thread which came up on a search and decided to register.

Basically, CT has been my favorite game ever since I played it on my friend's SNES soon after it came out. Never really had a chance to play CC, but I think I've found a remedy for that... Played the CT ROM off and on once I discovered emulation. Recently decided to buy a DS and found out about the CT port for it, so that rekindled my flame and I found some of the ROM hacks here like "Prophet's Guile" and "Crimson Echoes".

Right now, I'm currently waiting for my 2nd purchase of CT for the DS to get here. The first one I bought came from Hong Kong, and while I've had a number of dealings with buying good stuff from there, this time, I got screwed, as the saved game data would corrupt. It would somewhat work at first, but then it just completely went out on me, and I got ebay to give me my money back and go after the seller when he wouldn't respond to my emails.

Enough of that. Hope to see some more awesome stuff from the folks on this board.
