Quote from: Spooniest on March 28, 2019, 08:30:21 PMYou can't really remove any of the characters in Chrono Trigger. They're like Jenga Pieces in a game that is near its end...take one out, and the whole thing collapses.This reminds me of the Playable Aeris hacks for FF7 that people have suggested making/possibly made (I don't keep up with RHDN like I used to). To me, it's a neat trick, but it kind of attacks the feelings generated by the original storyline in a way that I feel makes it not Chrono Trigger.
Quote from: PowerPanda on March 28, 2019, 01:49:51 PMI honestly cannot see how anyone would feasibly add an 8th character to this game without redesigning it from the ground up. It's not just animations; it's not just adding weapons and armor; it's not just the limit for techs; it's not even the character select screen not having room. It's that every Player Character is initialized in EVERY. SINGLE. LOCATION. Switch to a new screen? Your PC is reloaded. That requires 5 bytes per character, which doesn't sound like much until you factor in that there are 503 locations. That's 2,515 bytes of additional event space, plus repointing the starting byte of every event.
Quote from: Mauron on March 29, 2019, 01:04:24 AMI've been working on an 8th character patch for some time. Editing the location events is tedious, and you also need to reorder the objects so the 8th character comes before all the NPCs, or the caterpillar system will get messed up. Fortunately it's not hard with Temporal Flux, just time consuming.- The graphics loading had to be modified to load data from banks other than the ones that originally held PC sprite data.- The main menu icons were originally sprites, and had to moved to the background to allow some menus to function properly.- The only thing necessary for the character swap menu is removing Gaspar. The menu was already set up to scroll if more than 4 PCs are in reserve.- Parts of tech data need to be in order, so that needs to be expanded and relocated.Fortunately some parts of the game's data were already done with 8 characters in mind, which helps some.
