CT2 - Probing For Interest
« on: August 18, 2017, 03:17:39 pm »
So, I've been brainstorming with myself (aka daydreaming) about various things, and I'm just curious- who would be interested in creating a 16bit Chrono Trigger 2 game? (I know, Crimson Echoes exists.)

What I'm thinking of would be a next generation thing. Basically it could start with Crono/Marle's kids. It would require new sprites (that would be largely based on the old ones), the creation of new environments, of course, and a new story line (my expertise!).

In my mind, the gameplay, the feel, would all be heavily, heavily based on Chrono Trigger. It'd almost be like, another one. And who could argue with that?

Anyway, if anyone's interested do let me know, it's at least worth a conversation.

I'd be interested in any fan project that came up. If you decide to do a ROM hack, I'll lend my technical expertise.

Ha, actually, I want someone to do the ROM hacking. Unless it's easy?

What i think this would require is:

1- a story (why i want to do this)
2- environments (can steal/modify old ones)
3- new sprites (can modify old ones)
4- actual gameplay, i.e. monsters and bosses (ROM hacking?)

If your using a Chrono Trigger ROM as a base, all of the above would be ROM hacking.

Creating new maps is a matter of drawing in Temporal Flux, inserting new tiles requires more effort. Sprite work is still tricky at the moment. It's on my todo list for plugins. Monster stats are easily changed, but AI is on my plugin todo list, probably starting soon.

I have seen and maybe try two fan game at CT2, one them are get error at Cronos room...
(rpg maker ... i donīt remeber at what ones)
But... Somewhat... i hope that there are program which can do it like CT... without any patch...
Rpg maker 2k3 make default at almost... but ct them are that map, not other...
Or CC like battle system... I donīt know what one battle system is better...

And are you take ideas at that NDS version, Nes or use it to think between CT and CC...

I'd play a CT2 even if it was unofficial.
