For any beta testers, friends of beta testers, and so on, leak = ban, and the Compendium can't really protect you if SE subpoenas your name or decides to prosecute. We will document to the best of our ability who's thinking about leaking. Even a fake leak = ban. You were asked to comply with the C&D and warned.

This must mean the hack still exists, then. >_>


Of course, I know you really can't publicly announce that if it does.

Well it's supposed to be deleted.  But there's no way to know for sure, seeing as how a select handful have the beta's.

To reiterate:

CE was not even a ROM. It was a standalone modification. The user needed to have a backup of Chrono Trigger SNES on their hard drive and apply the mod to that backup. Any file that says ".smc" -- the extension for SNES backups -- is patently false on its face.

CE was fine-tuned by a few beta testers. While I e-mailed them two days ago and asked that they comply, I have no way of physically forcing them to.

ZeaLitY and agent12, to the best of their abilities, have deleted all copies and ways to get copies of the hack.

It's not a ROM, as was explained. Anyhow, all known copies of the game were destroyed. Unfortunately, because Crimson Echoes had already been in beta testing when the CE team got the C&D letter, numerous people had their own copy of the nearly-completed game. ZeaLitY has instructed beta testers to destroy their copies, but of course we have no way of knowing for sure if they have done so. What we can be sure of, like ZeaLitY said, is that anybody who leaks this thing will be banned, and, more than that, will be identified to Square Enix, and then they can mull over the SE's lawsuit threat.

If the people who actually spent years of their own time and energy making this game are willing to comply with SE's demand--as shitty, ungrateful, wrong-headed, mean-spirited, and money-grubbing as that demand may be--then the rest of us should strive to be at least as generous and mature, and accept that the corporate beast has spoken and Crimson Echoes is broken.

postcount vs the amount of time you have been here and posting style save for one very long epic post you made.  

But its somewhat of a hollow accusation, just strange that more than one person came to the same conclusion.
