Which would you guys prefer?
« on: January 09, 2011, 12:15:13 am »
Since I've done this little reboot, I have a few gameplay changes I can make before I get too far in development. Here's my question to the Compendium:

Would you rather the HP cap for PCs be in the thousands, or max out at 999 like in Chrono Trigger? Same goes with magic.

It doesn't matter to me. I was just playing CT a minute ago and thought 'I can do that!'.

Thanks again, guys. :D

Considering it's after CT, it'd be kinda cool if everybody had around Lv70 stats, as though they were from a full CT playthrough already. But that would require changing every single enemy to be stronger so the hero doesn't just womp everyone right from the get-go.

On the other hand, the 999HP 99MP cap feels waaay more Chrono-canon-ish while you're playing. I'd stick with it.

I'm gonna go with the 999/99 caps.

It just feels... right.
Plus, it's hella easier to balance...

I love that you ask us - the fans / players - for our opinions on various matters.

I'm just happy there's still people around to continue this labor of love for Chrono Trigger and making a nice addition to it's series, since Square Enix fails at life.

What happens when people make a good fangame is something wonderful.

Because you get a game made out of pure love for the source content. Something that is made just because a follow up is important to that person or team.

This is why I love fan made content.

I agree with everything the past several posts have said! Imagine you have spend years making a game you're not interested in at ALL. You're not gonna do what most would call a "great job", right? So the opposite must be true, assuming the die-hard fans are also talented.

Luckily, that's the exact case we're dealing with right now. I love being a part of this time-traveling community :-D

I still find it amazing (in a great way) that such fan games are made with a lot of effort to the point if you downloaded them and didn't know you'd think they came from the original developers. I really am excited to watch the progress of these new projects. I fell in love with Crimson Echos and to see related contributers working once again to avoid CnDs to get it done is... well... amazing and inspiring.

Power to the Fandom!! MWAHAHAHA!!!!
