No Helmet Lucca Patch
« on: September 20, 2021, 09:52:55 pm »





Howdy ho! I've been writing a tutorial for PC sprite insertion and used an old design I had from a dream splash circa 2017-2018. Anyway, this is my first successful PC sprite insertion and I'm looking for beta testers to test Lucca out. If you're bored, give her a go and report any bugs here! Or you know, just have fun with a slightly different looking Lucca in your game!

(Attach .ips to an unheadered CT Rom).

Feel free to use her, just credit me :)

Expect PC sprite insertion tutorial in kajar labs eveeeentuaaalllyyyyy.

And the entire compendium weeped because i just gave Lucca new clothes and didn't put Schala in.

Will totally steal use with credit for the hack I'll probably never make.

Edit: BTW, have you considered a matching portrait?

Feel free to steal!

OOo the matching portrait would be very nice! I'll have to put that in!

I take it this is based from her appearance in the last anime cutscene, when she finds Kid, no?

Still, that's neat.

Yep, very based off of the ending cutscene! I was going to make a little rom hack involving her finding Kid in the woods! - Still might one day, who knows! Thanks!

Update:
I will be putting up a new patch with bug fixes for Lucca running left and right involving her hair doing funky things, as well as changing her portrait, overworld sprite, and face icon. :)

Tested this. It doesn't seem to have any conflicts with my hack.

Is this being worked on still?  Looks really cool, was hoping to patch this into my rom to make replaying the game again a bit more interesting.

Thank you! :D

It is! I've been fixing up some minor glitches involving Lucca's hair and I am inserting a new portrait, overworld sprite, and face icon. Finding a portrait that doesn't look like garbage once I shrink it down has been the real challenge!

I could just make my own portrait but im bad at face portraits

What about this one?

Crop the image so it's just her head. Maybe darken the image a little so the color palette better matches the rest of the Chrono Trigger cast of characters?

Double post. I adjusted the saturation a little and tried to make it a little less crisp to better match the official art from 1995.

Her hair is lighter in the spritework, so not sure how much would need to be tweaked.

If this does work, we'll want to confirm with the art owner that we can use it, since it isn't official art and I don't want to be "that guy" that stole someone's hard work.

:)

I don't mind being the one to reach out, though.

EDIT: I have the author (https://twitter.com/hosoyoh/status/1300798574586859520) but no Twitter handle. I think I found an email and have sent him/her an email.

EDIT 2: I reached out to hosoyoh via email and already got a response.

Dear <Boo the Gentleman Caller>,
Thank you for contacting me.
If you want to post my fanart with credits, that's fine.
Thank you very much.
hosoyoh

So we are clear to use that art if we want, we just need to credit hosoyoh in the readme file in the package.
