Chrono Trigger Envy Hack Twitch Playthrough
04 March 2015 7:42AM EST - Update by topcat
The author will be doing a playthrough of this hack that he made a couple of years ago. There were mixed reviews with a lot of negative feedback based on difficulty early on. These mostly came from people that were offended by the dialogue so they did not bother to get the Rusty Blade from Melchoir. Oh well. Though it is admitted it does take too much grinding to get the money for it, The author was not able to further edit the project after the final release, and did not want to do it all over again. It’s not a perfect hack, but it is a full one and, in my opinion, one of the better and more in depth available.
The author noticed that, as of this article, there are 1,277 downloads. WOW! The author never thought that so many people would play this game! The author would love to know how many enjoyed it! Any feedback after these 2 years would be awesome.
Anyway, The author will be playing this on Twitch, so any and all aspects can be seen. I’d love for folks to join me. This will show that the increase in difficulty is in fact slight, it just doesn’t allow for speed runs or minimal playthrough. One must actually PLAY Chrono Trigger, as if it were the first time. No playing on auto pilot like so many of us cult fanatics have come to do after almost 2 decades of replay.
A link to the channel is provided in relevant link (under the article) and the project page (somewhere) for those with any interest.
Chrono Trigger - Envy Hack
05 March 2013 9:35AM EST - Update by topcat
Chrono Trigger is one of the most beloved RPG’s of the SNES era, and arguably of all time. It is the story of 3 teenagers that, while venturing through different eras in time, discover that the future lie in ruins due to an attack from a monstrous, evil beast named Lavos. They set out to save their world and future by defeating this monster. Along the way they travel to many time periods and make friends that will help them in their quest.
This project began in November of 2012 and was just a way to test what could be done w/ the editors that were available. It was set to be an update to the author’s preferences. As the game is viewed as “kid friendly” being that any reference to alcohol is changed to soda or lemonade in the pubs. This project was designed to correct that and make the reality of the game more consistent with real life. Due to learning of what bugs these programs can cause only as they come up during testing, this release is the fifth go through of the project, ie version 1.5 In the end most of the dialogue available in the game and in the endings had been changed one way or another. With a few ideas and desires for “better” weapons and armor, all of the deleted equipment has been made available in the game. As this was not done w/ temporal flux, the only way to put them into the game is via enemy drops/steals, so no treasure chests have been added or changed. Some of the already existing equipment in the game has been changed as well, either by name, parameters, or both. Also, enemies have slightly increased hp while giving less exp & tech points. Enough to make gameplay a little more challenging, but not enough to be considered a “hardtype.”
This hack contains spoof elements naturally as the author is a vulgar comedian. There are cuss words, adult situations, sexual references, and humor that may be offensive to some. It is not overdone, and the dialogue should not come across as “forced” to fit a joke in. Player discretion is advised.
