I don't have anything right now, but this thread should totally be pinned.

This list says that Chrono Cross was released as a GH game in '03.  I very specifically remember buying my GH copy of it in May of '02 (there are other details I remember that very specifically put it in mid-May '02, for what that's worth...)

Edit: Come to think of it, Squaresoft (as Square Enix) re-released a fair number of their PS1 games as GH games in '03 (FF7-FF9, FF Anthology and Chronicles, and Xenogears are the ones I know of;) perhaps there was another re-release of CC under the Square Enix label?  Mine has the SquareSoft label, though.

I've found a few minor errors among CC characters' pages. Most are related to the Character's weapon and a link to the worng page.

They didn't seem any important to me, but, according to the chaos theory, reality as it is might be completely destroyed in a distant future due to such details. Thus, here I go:

Mel's page indicates she uses gloves. Her actual weapon is a Boomerang.

Irenes' page indicates she uses a Lure. Her actual weapon is a Pick.

Norris' and Starky's pages indicate they use Shots. Both actually use Guns.

Radius' page indicates he uses a Rod. His actual weapon is a Staff.

Janice's page correctly indicates she uses a Carrot. However, it's linking to the wrong page. The correct page would be this one.

In NeoFio's page, the Home World section says:
"Turnip was presumably killed before birth when Viper Manor was brought down before 1020 A.D."
I suppose it should be about NeoFio, not Turnip, although they're both vegetables. Right?

That's all. I hope I've helped, even if it only makes difference hundreds of years in the future, when some old lieutenant will need to know Mel's correct weapon to impede the fourth world war.

Thanks a ton. Yeah, the Cross bios are subject to those errors since I rapidly completed those entries with the aid of a template.

Warning: this topic has not been posted in for at least 120 days.
Unless you're sure you want to reply, please consider starting a new topic.


Although I am well aware of this, perhaps I should have contacted maggiecarp, non?

I will most post some quick mistakes here, please refer to next post though as it is more "neat". Thought I would do this real quick...



EDIT: Orcha appearing in 2 Chronology dates fixed!

I bolded the words that should be changed in the underlined headings and put what it should read.


Edits for Chrono Cross Condensed Plot Summary


Settlement of El Nido (1 edit change)

"The Viper Clan was responsible for its founding, and probably immigrated from mainland Zenan with others."

immigrated > emigrated


Serge and the Frozen Flame (1 edit change)

"FATE took advantage of Wazuki's corruption, and bega to shape him to FATE's will. Lastly, while the storm was down, the split Dragon Gods briefly came together to create a seventh piece, called Harle."

bega > began


Chrono Cross Begins (1 edit change)

"She succeeded, and a new dimension was fissioned off from the main one; the main is now called Another World, and the new one, in which Serge lives, is called Home World."

fissioned > "fissioned" (since it is not a real word...)


Schala's Freedom (1 edit change)

"Using a Time Egg, the same device by which Crono was ressurrected in Chrono Trigger, Serge ventured to the Darkness Beyond Time, where the Time Devourer resided, and freed Schala."

ressurrected > resurrected


The Lost Storyline? (2 edit changes)

"Signs point to another overaching storyline that involved Serge binding with the Time Devourer itself;"

overaching > heart-wrenching


"Chrono Cross Ultimania mainly supports this notion, claiming that the Arbiter of the Frozen Flame must mediate between his fellow lifeforms and Lavos, or else he will inevitably bind with the creature and spell destruction for other humans."

lifeforms > life forms OR life-forms (editors discretion)


Serge's Perspective (3 edit changes)

"This information is later expatiated by accompanied apparitions. Serge learns that the time research facility Chronopolis created El Nido thousands of years ago after a catastrophic experimental failure drew it to the past. The introduction of a temporally foreign object in history caused the planet to pull in a counterbalnace from a different dimension."

expatiated > elaborated on (editors discretion)

counterbalnace > counterbalance


"Thousands of years later, a panther demon attacked a three-year old Serge."

The letter "a" is not needed here... (editors discretion of course)


--------


End of edits for CC Plot Summary. Let me know if this was helpful.


EDIT: - cleaned it up a little... :picardno

Magus22, several of your corrections are themselves incorrect or unnecessary:

1. “Fission” is a legitimate intransitive verb and does not need to be changed.

2. “Overaching” should be changed to “overarching,” not “heart-wrenching.” They're completely different ideas.

3. “Lifeform” used to be two distinct words, but nowadays it is widely accepted as a single compound word.

4. “Expatiated,” hah! I didn't know anybody else actually knew that word. For the record, “expatiated” would work just fine, but “elaborated upon” would definitely be more accessible to a general audience. Note, however, that it's “elaborated upon” and not “elaborated on.”

5. Regarding “a three-year-old Serge,” this is one of those cases where a legitimate construction could be built out of the indefinite article, the definite article, or  no article—and each construction would be distinct from the other. The most common, however, would be the one that's already there: the one with the indefinite article. This kind of phrasing is used as a form of emphasis. The no-article version you're suggesting is actually rather archaic; to modernize it you'd need to move or eliminate the “three-year-old” qualifier, and in so doing you would eliminate the emphasis, which is why it would be a distinct idea.

The lion attacked Magus22. (Emphasis is gone!)
The lion attacked very unhappy Magus22. (This is the one you're proposing.)
The lion attacked a very unhappy Magus22. (Simple, straightforward, effective.)
The lion attacked the very unhappy Magus22. (Slightly different construction; more emphasis on the object and less on the action. In this case, the “the” resonates unfavorably with the “the” earlier in the sentence.)

Hope this was some help to ya! Thanks for updating our encyclopedia.

"The Viper Clan was responsible for its founding, and probably immigrated from mainland Zenan with others."

immigrated > emigrated

I'd have to disagree on that one. 
immigrated - "probably immigrated to El Nido from mainland Zenan"
emigrated - "probably emigrated from mainland Zenan [to El Nido]"

I could be wrong though, since El Nido is already referenced with 'its', so I do not know if that makes any difference.

edit: I could also be wrong in that I interpreted your post backwards and that the article originally said "immigrated" and you changed it to "emigrated', as the article is now.

Not sure if this is the correct topic to post.

Just keep a reminder in case someone might forget it.

The character '土' in CT retranslation script should be '士'.

Isn't this piece called "Last Battle"?

Hmm, I just checked their website, and didn't see an English title for it. So are you sure "Rust" is not a mistranslation for "Last"?
