Oh, I see what happened. I had been going through Location Events packets, while you had done Locations.

Your approach covered Crono's Room, while mine got {052} Ending Selector.

I'll need to do some research before adjusting the Blackbird further.

Sorry it took so long, life has been pretty hectic.
Here is 8thy with the end of time split, after story point d3 the end of time becomes 1CF.

As a suggestion I recommend playing through and making note of which maps actually need 8thy moved up for the sake of your sanity and this project's completion.

Example: Magus on the Blackbird required moving his script to the top  on only one single map to function properly.

Two selfish question:

1.) Is it possible to merge 6-character patch with 8-playable character patch (when 8-playable character patch is completed)?
2.) If so, hypothetically, is testing need to get 8th playable character to the finish line? What would that look like? Visiting each map at various points in the game to see what crashes and what doesn't?

I ask because it would be insane if this was functional and could be implemented into a hack like Crimson Echoes.

1) 6 character names? Yes, easily.

2) I'll organize my notes.

I say all this, because if checking maps and documenting codes/errors, I can probably help with that. If that's what it takes to get to the finish line, let me help! :D

If we want to speed it up then we just need to play through and make note of which maps break the caterpillar formation and address them specifically.

Getting it to play friendly with existing hacks is a whole other story.

I figured it's nigh impossible. But worth asking, haha... Worse can happen is that it doesn't happen! :D

I'm doing what I can to maximize compatibility with existing hacks, but applying it will still take some heavy lifting.

Well I can definitely test that out, if you guys want help!

Unless Mauron has worked on it further the link I posted above should be good for testing.

The above poster has only one post. Risky click.

Having an 8th character slot in Chrono is my holy grail of hacks, and I saw an opportunity to help with that. The filesize is exactly the same. I'm sure IHBP could confirm that.

Okay, now you don't sound like a bot. Just offering caution; we get a lot of spam bots here.

Anyway, welcome to the Compendium! :D
