nightmare975, I think that just means you have a headered ROM...isn't there a headered patch? Well, either way, I'm sure you could just go out and find another ROM...

I voted "Too Short", but in a good way. There was, like said, a lot of clipping (Crono going through things that he shouldn't and what-not) going on, but it's nothing big that I'm sure you guys are on top of...I've noticed that I haven't seen DDK around online much anymore. I'm guessing he's really crankin it out, yeah? Either that or he, like, is out having a life...whichever, I guess :?

I loved the new music. I like the old music, but w/a new game, why not have new music? Especially since it's good. It'd be cool to hear some of that cool ambient stuff of Mitsuda's from RD in the game though...maybe.

EDIT: Plugging ROM sites? You know better than that. R_D

I voted that it was too short... I did enjoy it, though. The demo is nicely put together, and had a nice feel to it, but was simply too short for my tastes. The new music was great, also.

I'm looking forward to the full version, though! *Starts salivating over just thinking about CE*

I voted that it was to short, but It was okay. I liked the way that you had the clipping of all the characters. The only two things that I didn't like was Frog's accent and Magus talking... He's talking like a retard, no offence. Like talking to himself to much and stuff. I mean, he's supposed to be like the semi quite person too Oo

Thought I would have liked to see more than just Truce, I know it's all in good time (this IS a demo, after all), so I didn't vote for that.

It looks great so far, and the only complaints I have are ones you already know of (Crono's picture doesn't really fit IMO, NPC dialogue is a bit strained)

Sorry for double posting, but I have have a few things to say about the demo now that I've finished it.

1:The statues in the hero gallery are kinda bad. The Lucca one especially. :x

2. If you use the turbo button, the game wont make the animations for the sprites. I don't know if that is fixable though.

3. GOD DANGIT WHAT THE HECK ARE THOSE PORTRAITS! Those portraits are totally ugly! If you could, please change them!

4. Zaperking is kinda right, Glenn does talk kinda funny. I didn't see a problem with Magus.

5. The new places are really cool, but you need to find out how to design a new ferry animation to go to Medina or later, Choras.

I can't remember anything eles at the moment, but it really is a good job!
Oh and thanks V_Translanka, I did need a new ROM.

I meant the first Zenan continent place, but I also never got to finish the demo, so I guess that complaint is null.

Yeah, I was disappointed that you hardly fought in the demo.  Seems on the right track though.

Oh yes...  Apparently, you are given the Red Katana or something to give to that Knight.  Well, why make this an inventory thing, and why make it one of Crono's sword?  When I went into my inventory, I equiped it asap, and sold the other one.  Then when I finally gave him the sword....  Bye bye Crono's weapon.

Sentenal, doesn't that first comment kind of nullify the second...I mean, the sword's gone, but it's not like you need it, right? :P Oh, and why wouldn't you have forseen that problem...I mean, didn't you know you wouldn't be able to keep the sword you were supposed to give to someone? I admit it should just be a Key Item (or w/e they're called, I forget)...but still...common sense should weed out the losers! :lol:

Yeah. I felt like a fascist, but I'd rather be safe than sorry.

My point was that I didnt think I would give him the Red Katana, because what would a Knight want a Katana for?  A Frog-Sword-type would have been a better choice.
