Aha, if you own the PSX version in some form, can you also see if you can get those concept art pictures stored in the Extras menu? I tried and failed to do that earlier, and it's been on my to-do list for awhile.

I'm currently checking out the pictures.

YES! THIS GIVES US A CUTTING EDGE OVER OTHER CHRONO CROSS SITES

Ooooh, yeah. I'm going to place them all in one image like I did with the CT art and announce it with this news post.

I uploaded the pictures of the characters (the vertical banners from the menu) and I'm currently adding them to the characters pages.

Oh and I underestimated the numbers of the images, they are actually 8,367 (mainly unuseful textures and stuff) plus the videos. The pain with PSX Multi-Converter is that you can't extract all the images at once (you have to extract each of them one by one), and I can't seem to extract the video sequence (can just convert individual frames...).

Or maybe these features are available but I don't know how to use them, I don't know :x

I stumbled upon an interesting image though :


It looks like a slot machine or something. Maybe it was supposed to be in Fargo's ship, or perhaps it's actually in the game somewhere?

Nothing that I remember, but I am only up to the Garai fight.

It reminds me of those matching picture card games...I think a few of the Dragon Quest/Warrior games had that kind of mini-game in them...at least 7 did...I have seen or heard nothing of that though...Wierd...

Aside: DW7 was the only one to have that game.

It couldn't be that style of game for one reason: there are three each of the rabbit and fish icons, but two of the rest. These games always have two of each icon.

I don't know what kind of game would use that combination of pictures. That is very odd.

There are actually 3 other images but I didn't felt the need to post them. I didn't noticed that there were two of some icons (instead of three?), though... so I'll post all the pictures, in case it brings ideas or something to someone.

They were in this order :



Edit : I've just realized that the Dragon Tear is not a Key Item (or is it?), although there's a Key Item pic of it :

I looked through the Key Item pics, and I just noticed that the two Hero's Medals from the games are very dissimilar.

Also, now from those wacky pics it looks like there are three of most of them and five fishes and five bunnies...How...odd...I wonder wtf that's all about...We need one of them flashing Bat Phones from the old Adam West Batman, only it needs to be...like...a Kato Phone or something...

Actually, I believe you do get the Dragon Tear as a key item at one point.

As for those pictures, I'm at a loss. A slot machine is my best guess, but it could have been wallpaper or something.

If you switch the two outside smaller pics with each other it looks exactly like the upper left corner of the first pic.

Okay I've uploaded the characters portraits (the icons from the dialogue boxes), including the NPCs (I guess RPG Planet already had them but hey...)

There are 2 portraits which I don't recall being used in the game :
 



The first one looks like a young Lynx, but I don't remember it in the game (maybe it's Serge-as-Lynx?).

As for the second, I don't know. I've found 7 of those kind in the disk, all put next to the NPC portraits (which themselves are next to the PC portraits). Maybe they were for some characters which were dummied out. Somebody who can read Japanese could probably help for the symbol.

That Lynx pic does look very Serge-ish.

Maybe they were going to have Serge talk as Lynx during the scene right after he changed.

Adding something to step 2 called the Image Index. This will be a listing of all images on the Compendium, sorted by game, type, character, etc. This will become an unimaginably useful asset to Chrono fans searching for sprites, art, and screenshots.
