I've posted a copy of the news article that is still in submission below.

As stated in the article, I'd love some feedback after 2 years and over 12 hundred downloads. Did people get past the shitty shittiness of the dialogue changes to enjoy the rest? Did anyone enjoy my shitty jokes, references, reinterpretations, etc?

Thanks to all those that have took the time to download and play! :D

"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."


Ps.... I don't suppose there have been any temporal flux tutorials created???????????? <3

I hope you enjoy! If you get offended, sorry. If things get too difficult to start, get the rusty blade. :D

I enjoyed more the retranslation from the Japanese version. and I do not replay RPGs just because you text changed. But Chrono Trigger is a amazing masterpiece and I want you to play it with the original japanese uncensored text
Captain Tsubasa 3 , 4th most downloaded Spanish translation.  Possibly the first Jap to Spanish translation instead of English to Spanish. There is no English version yet

Played it a bit after testing my project. Got to where Crono hops through the portal and I got raped from having 1 hp after a Gato fight. I actually like most of the text changes I saw, a good deal of it's pretty damn funny, though I wish more of it was changed up.

All in all, definately better then my time trying to play Devolution.  :thumbsup:

It's more than just a text hack.

Yes, exactly like SOM entirely. Except for in method, effect, story, placement, purpose, dialogue, attack power, status, sprites, animation, to whom it may be equipped, leveling up possibility, ability to cut grass, or voices telling you to get it from the stone in the water. So... no? Lol.

It took a couple of weeks to get the broadcast software to work properly for me, but it's up. I have the beginning up on twitch (link in original post) for any interested. Highlights to come.
