Hack of Chrono Trigger

Description:

This Chrono Trigger updates the script of this wonderful game to modern standards, while keeping the nuanced but lovable translation and characteristics of the original script.

The hack combines the loved, quirky translation of the original SNES version, with the more extended script of the DS version, to create the best Chrono Trigger version. Compared, as well, with the Japanese original, for many lines where meanings were initially lost (mostly funny lines from era to era, but also some… surprises).

Apart from that, scenes were added that add a bit more interaction between the characters and NPCs (Lucca and Melchior, for instance). Nothing major, but small things here and there to make the journey more worthwhile, and explore having different characters in your party.

Last, and bigger in scope, more direct references to Chrono Cross story; the Frozen Flame was added as an element in Zeal, and a possibility of what could have happened with Schala, Zeal, the Flame, Dreamstone, the Mammon Machine, and the Gurus. Mostly Chrono Compendium based, but also a bit of the author’s own (original-material based) theory-crafting. Look out for the references, and figure out how the Ocean Palace incident and the fall of Zeal are explained in this version!

The core gameplay is kept from the SNES original, with mostly SNES original names. No extra content from the DS version added.
