Chrono Trigger - Time's Illusion Update!
« on: April 23, 2007, 11:39:26 pm »
Well, as you all know, this project has been in development for some time now, but was halted for a few months due to school work.  But after a long while, we've been kicking it back into gear hugely and are trying to get a demo released as soon as possible!  The date we are hopefully setting is the middle of summer or the end of it, due to all the graphics hacking, music hacking, and tech hacking that we have to do.  But anyways, here's some screenshots that we have.

- The picture, i'm not sure who made it, but I am greatly indepth for whoever made it.

Also, there's an IPS patch posted.  It replaces Lucca with Schala a bit.  Her walking in all direction is done, and her running front is done.  MUST HAVE AN UNHEADERED ROM.  Feel free to leave any comments and criticism.  That is all for now =)

looks great, don't see schala as a fire type though.

I never got around to changing that.  I forgot where the offset was for those graphics, so just ignore those.

Looks like la are in one font block. The VWF patch they're using doesn't allow extra text in menus; just in regular dialogue.

Too bad we don't get to see the naming screen.
He also has a screenshot with her named "Damien".

the % was changed to la and the # was changed to en.  I really don't feel like trying to make the whole text support 6 letters ._.

I had no idea either, but Shinrin posted some screens and let me try it out. Someone at ROMHacking.net made it as a favor.

If your talking about font, that one was just one I made a little bit.  All I did was shortened the letters by 1 pixel in width and some in height.  It's really not that hard.

- This is what the alphabet looks like when you use Tile Molester.  You lower the columns until this.  I think you have to change it to 2-4 bit plane.  Can't remember which, but that's about it.  Also remember, it's 1 straight column.  Not a multitude of columns.

Well, I've encountered a problem. I removed the header of the ROM file with Temporal Flux, I patched the ROM with Lunar IPS. But hell, the patch didn't work, it just starts the normal Chrono Trigger. How can I overcome this problem?

It starts off like a normal Chrono Trigger.  Lucca is changed to Schala somewhat.

Geez, Justin, couldn't you at least have given me a couple of hours on top of the news page with the CTNP Demo Chapters release?  :p

Otherwise, nice work.

Haha, not a problem.  I'll have another update soon anyway when the contest rolls out.  Just don't trump me then and all is forgiven.  :)

Take care!
