While not possible in the vanilla game, it's something I could hack in.

Actually I've already done it, the Valkyrie bow is an ice magic attack in this hack, seems to work good.

Still not sure if it's actually something I wanna do though.

So is this version ready to go?

Gotta check the HP overflow power up, though all other new side quests are bug free at this point.  The Black Omen and all tested areas work great with the bot minion.  It does sometimes get auto targeted if you have a character equipped with the berserker, but there's nothing that can really be done about that.  Lavos doesn't seem bugged in any way I've seen anymore.  No game breakers anywhere.  Only thing I haven't tested at all is if that all the endings still work, or the new changes you just made to the optional Nes difficulty patch.

What did you do to make the Valkyrie bow do ice magic damage?

Great news that its big free, btw congrats on beating it on such a low level, never thought you'd beat Magus.

For the Valkyrie bow I just edited it in Hi-tech, weapon perk Magical Attack, and ice elemental.

Ok, I see what you did. The Element is set on Marle's control headers, and the magic damage is activated on the weapon itself. This approach works fine as long as you don't need more than one element per PC. If you want to give Marle a Lightning bow as well, it would need a hack.

If I hadn't been able to use Ayla, who came in at a higher level due to your latest patch on leveling not being in play yet, it would have been impossible.  Needless to say I did not do the Nes difficulty hack.  And the battle plan for most sections was often Robo use shock, Frog and Ayla use slurp kiss.  Okay time to go buy more ethers.  Then once I had access to the red, white, blue, and black plates, most battles were strategically simple until the Lavos Spawn.  Magus coming in at level 50 was a requirement there.  Even so, beating the one so I could get to 1999 to do the side quests took so many tries.  The amazing overpriced equipment sold in the mystic's shop was key to getting me to Zeal though.  Honestly the droid was the biggest help.  I was basically playing the "stay alive while it makes the kill" game for most of the Black Omen.

The note prior to the 1999 portal still refers to killer robots, even after dealing with the virus.

If you take care of the virus, but didn't first beat up mother brain, then The Guru of Time still eludes to a side quest in the future that you can not longer complete.

Nice job with the update! Going to be delving much more into this hack in the coming days.
For now, I will just leave a small consistency nitpick I noticed at the start:
Chrono's mom is called Gina at first when waking him up, but then it's MOM again when he walks down stairs.
Also, her name is not all caps, while Lucca's mom LARA and others are in all caps.

I assume the intention of calling her Gina at the start is to establish that's her name, but it feels a bit weird having his mom be named right off the bat for waking him up, just to have it become MOM again right after. I think it should be MOM still for waking him up, because to Crono it's Mom and not Gina. And the caps thing, I'd say either one way or the other.

Ya that makes sense. There's probably bound to be a few things that need tweaking here and there.

I am, though none of the coolest parts would have worked without Mauron's help.

It was a pleasure.  As soon as you enabled no magic runs just because I asked for them, I knew that if I put forth the effort to help that you'd give me what I really wanted (a definitive and objectively improved version of Chrono Trigger).  Loved this game growing up, and love what you've done with it.  And I'm sure we both have notes for things we want to see in an eventual 3.0 as well.  I'm a perfectionist, a programmer, and a hobbiest artist.  I can safely say you share that spirit sir, and if you're ever near Chicagoland hit me up and I'll buy you a beer.
