After extensive testing I give my blessing to the current build of this hack. There are really only three outstanding issues:
- Some doorways being able to be skipped over with the sprint shoes, which will never result in a soft lock (the user can always get out of it), but can be annoying.
- Glenn's human pose in some scenes leaves the user knowing that a human Glenn update is planned and just not implemented yet.
- That super secret 600 AD bug that you've got to be an specifically trying to break the game to recreate (leave this one, I really want to see if anyone else happens upon it).
This feels like the version where Chrono Trigger plus really became an open ended game, where the clear ready-made path is always available and clear (well accept that you are supposed to go to the present instead of the distant past right after getting to the end of time), but you can tackle a whole lot of things out of order if you desire, even skipping numerous plot points if it's new game plus or you really know what your'e doing. Also the 1999 region is incredibly well done with loads of side quests and events that are both rewarding in terms of plot, characterization, and power ups.
There are several things I would like to see going forward (some of which are clearly already planned, like the Glenn human form), but I just want to thank ThegreatBen for all his work on this hack. This is up there with the likes of Mega Man X3 Zero project, as one of those passion projects that goes through countless iterations towards making a definitive and superior game in every way to the original.
