Chrono Trigger - No Music

Hack of Chrono Trigger


This mod removes the background music in Chrono Trigger. Thank you to Pseudoarc from the Jets of Time Chrono Trigger Randomizer Discord server for providing the initial Python script that was used to silence most of the game’s music and some of the sound effects. Readmit expanded the script and changed things within it so that it would keep the sound effects and remove all of the music; however, the pendulum sound at the game’s title screen could not be kept. This mod is compatible on both emulator and original hardware, and it is also compatible with the Chrono Trigger Randomizer.

Does exactly as it's supposed to!

Reviewed By: Uberdubie on 27 May 2023

Does EXACTLY what it’s supposed to. Nearly all sound effects play without the music, and with no issues. I’ve been looking for more hacks that do this, and it’s greatly appreciated!

I make compilation videos for (mostly) various retro games, put them to my own soundtrack, and post them on various social media sites. Some of them go viral, and make me some nice side income. This is relevant to the review because I VASTLY prefer using footage with the sound effects included, but without music. And for most retro console games out there, most reading this are likely very aware that this isn’t all that common – ESPECIALLY in JRPGs.

Are the purposes for this hack pretty niche, and thus most people will have no use for this? Of course. But I see no need to discount a hack’s usefulness with that as a justification. Yes, we all know this game has one of the greatest soundtracks out there. But for people like me – this hack is PERFECT, and incredibly useful!

Thank you for sharing it!
