Time to kick off the new year!  CROSS  >>>  [1]  Before Christmas, Mitsuda previewed his arrange version of "A Narrow Space Between Dimensions". You can download it by clicking here. Thanks to Jérémie Kermarrec and Chrono'99.  [2]  The Chrono Cross character feature is finally out. Find it here.  >>>  TRIGGER  >>>  [1]  RioRock has uploaded two chapters of the OAV manga; find them in this thread[2]  According to this, Chrono Trigger DS hits Europe on February 6.  [3]  Gamestop has changed the Napoleon Dynamite joke blurb for Chrono Trigger DS to reference Sarah Connor and Marty McFly; check it out here.

MODIFICATION  >>>  [1]  FaustWolf has released a comprehensive guide on inserting new tilesets (or location graphics) into Chrono Trigger. This is dynamite for the modding community; grab it here[2]  I've added Luminaire85's work in progress Blender plugin for importing Chrono Cross models to the modification section; you can download it here[3]  FaustWolf has uploaded an improved version of his sprite graphics offsets spreadsheet; grab it here.

CHRONO RESURRECTION  >>>  Zeenbor has allowed the Chrono Compendium to post twenty pieces of unreleased concept art for Chrono Trigger Resurrection. Head to the Fan Art page and click "Chrono Resurrection" on the right table of contents to check it out.

FAN ART  >>>  [1]  A fan named Glen has created an 1920x1200 Chrono Trigger wallpaper to celebrate the New Year. It's possibly the first of its kind! Find it here (fixed).  [2]  Sooperkreep is at it again; this time we've got FATE (yay; she's rarely covered) and Magus[3]  ChronoWeapon rounds 2008 out with Happy Nu Year[4]  Here's 9900GilJerky with Harle[5]  On the fan fiction side of things, Zephira has posted the prologue to "The Cats Came Back" here.

SITE  >>  [1]  The Encyclopedia Beautification Project of 2008 has wrapped. The prose in some older Chrono Trigger location and character articles has been fixed to remove passive voice and other excess that my 2005 brain habitually excreted. Images have also been added to the upper right of some entries to make them more aesthetically pleasing.  [2]  This means we're finally ready to do the Analysis Review. First, we'll do it for the six analysis forums, pretending that Chrono Trigger DS doesn't exist. Once that's done, we'll implement regular DS information to the encyclopedia, at which point we'll do a second Analysis Review incorporating DS. Staggering them this way ensures we don't have disparate, out of date information lurking around the encyclopedia, and that we treat DS with up to date temporal principles. [hidden]

http://www.chronocompendium.com/Term/Rate_the_Characters_of_Chrono_Cross took 5 hours to assemble, ugh...Korcha sucked so much that his image was starting to implode by sheer force of vacuum. Sticking Guy on there stopped the process, thankfully.[/hidden]

Wrong link. Leading to "Happy Nu Year" fanart.

Please fix. Getting curious.

I have to say for the Resurrection unreleased art, I like the one with Crono's back turned to the viewer in the dark, and Marle. Marle's I REALLY like, and I mean I really like it.

Oh, baby, I can't get over the fact that a fansite for a videogame series that's been practically abandoned for a decade is still producing these kinds of updates. It's really, truly, amazing and awe-inspiring. The advent of Chrono Trigger DS has certainly helped revive the community, but still...

Yeah. We're probably starting to make fan sites for active series look bad.

Hah, no comments about the surreal qualities of that feature yet...

The HD link is fixed.

Lol wow those models for Ressurection are crazily good! I mean just look at Crono's cat in 3d! To me I can honestly say its Kingdom Hearts Quality. Geez I guess I have to practice more 3D studio max to actually get anywhere. Ugh! Still Good Update.

Hello!

After much work, I've found my waaaaaay old screen name from like 3 years ago (hence the 1-2 posts, lol).  Anyway, I hope you like the HD wallpaper (yep, its me, Glen).  I look forward to posting more on these boards.  See you all around!  :D

The Chrono Cross character feature is finally out. Find it here.

Wow, that was awesome...I almost forgot about that whole thing (look at them member names!)...It should include how many total votes each character got though, I think...

It's more fun to read because I'm currently replaying Chrono Cross, and for the first time I chose the Nikki path.

I always liked Nikki for GrandFinale where he actually uses his guitar as a weapon (usually by breaking it over the enemy's skull!)...and then I love that he just immediately has an identical guitar right afterwards...spooky...where's that ninja roadie? >_>

I forgot we did this... Interesting reading through these again. I can't believe I even wrote that well at one point.

Prince deserved that 1999.

Gamestop has changed the Napoleon Dynamite joke blurb for Chrono Trigger DS to reference Sarah Connor and Marty McFly; check it out here.

This one was actually up long before the Napoleon Dynamite one, back when the site was taking pre-orders on the game. Stupidly enough of me I didn't think of linking it. Still great though.

The Encyclopedia Beautification Project of 2008 has wrapped. The prose in some older Chrono Trigger location and character articles has been fixed to remove passive voice and other excess that my 2005 brain habitually excreted. Images have also been added to the upper right of some entries to make them more aesthetically pleasing.  [2]  This means we're finally ready to do the Analysis Review. First, we'll do it for the six analysis forums, pretending that Chrono Trigger DS doesn't exist. Once that's done, we'll implement regular DS information to the encyclopedia, at which point we'll do a second Analysis Review incorporating DS. Staggering them this way ensures we don't have disparate, out of date information lurking around the encyclopedia, and that we treat DS with up to date temporal principles.

Sounds like a great plan.

http://www.chronocompendium.com/Term/Rate_the_Characters_of_Chrono_Cross took 5 hours to assemble, ugh...Korcha sucked so much that his image was starting to implode by sheer force of vacuum. Sticking Guy on there stopped the process, thankfully.

This made my week.

I can't believe I wrote that poorly at one point.  Too many short sentences, one after another and such... oh well.

Was anyone else here not too thrilled by the Arrange preview?  It's a nice string orchestration, I suppose.  Nothing really quite as great as some of the original tracks on the OST though, like Scars of Time and Jellyfish Sea. Though I'm still interested of course...
