So that's it?  Let the 4channers and Something Awfuls remake something Kajar Labs (not the Compendium) put so much time and effort into butcher it beyond words?

Who knows?  Maybe they'll get a C&D letter from Squeenix and take it up their collective butts.

Yes.

The C&D was rather pointed as it is; I doubt Square-Enix's legal department was in the mood for trivial semantics when they wrote it.

Maybe. At least if they do, no one from the Compendium's head will roll as a result.

Even so, now with this newfound knowledge of copyright laws on intellectual property, what's stopping us from giving it another shot?  Is it because it might take us another five years to do so, and Squeenix will be waiting in the shadows, and it'll be Deja Vu all over again?

If you want to do a fan-made Chrono game or a ROM hack independent of the Compendium, and you've got either the resources to hide your ass or the balls to stand up to any C+D letters you get, then by all means do it :) Just don't get the Compendium involved...

I doubt these guys will butcher it, they're trying as hard as they can to replicate Crimson Echoes as it could've been. I also doubt a C+D will stop them, as they're much deeper underground than the CE team ever was and are only talking about their efforts on the shadiest of channels.

If Square's vindictive enough they might come after the Compendium even if it's clear the Compendium wasn't involved, though I hope that wouldn't happen.

I love how those involved with the "remake" of Crimson Echoes pretend like they're not one of those involved with the "remake" of Crimson Echoes.  LOLS!

If I was a good enough hacker to be involved with Flames of Eternity, I'd be working on reviving Playable Schala right now, not Crimson Echoes.

Oh, and you people would have hundreds of Schala nude sprites to enjoy.

arent we not supposed to talk about this kind of thing?
i mean were all kind of bitter still.
but why pick an old scab and make it bleed more instead of letting it scar up and have it be a memory?

Why not?

If they're supposedly more underground than the Compendium is, then they shouldn't be worrying about whether or not they'll finish the remake.

Besides, it's not they'll care about some C&D letter to halt their progress.

Which is precisely why they're doing it, and we aren't.

i guarantee you, with the amount of work involved in restoring it, most will go nowhere. i just highly doubt that a 2bit 4chan/sa troll is going to go very far in actually fixing and giving the game justice.

Meh, I saw Kando post in this thread last and figured he would have some lowly thing to say about the FoE team. I'm too lazy to go back in the thread to actually see where our project came into this but anyways. The FoE project is making great progress by self-learning everything. Hell, i've even picked up on spriting from just messing with things. Anyways, i'll be in touch.

all i know is from when you guys started up till about 2-3 weeks ago when i last got a progress update, giro was still "dumping the text."

and the text i've seen where he added in the "old english accent"...

I don't think "Ye" was used enough.

hey, feel free to surprise us all man.

It's kinda sad how it seems that our projects seem to be going against each other as some sort of nonsensical competition. Yeah, Giro was working on the text dump for a while, but it's mainly because I had been without a computer for a while. We're making changes to the game such as the playable Schala because it would make a little more sense since Ayla is supposedly pregnant with her second child. Anywho, FoE is going to be {almost} the same as CE besides for a few minor changes. And yeah, I got onto Giro about the massive use of the word "Ye" :/ And still, even though progress may be slow, it is still progress.

Also, while I'm here, The reason for the name change is to help avoid SE trying to pull anything against the Compendium by saying that they had something to do with it. And no, the FoE team isn't a bunch of trolls, It's a select few die-hard Chrono fans who really want to see this get out there.

Well, I wish you all the best of luck. Any venture is a good one at this point...up to the point where you get the Compendium involved, in which case, I trust you know when to stop.
