Chrono Compendium / Crimson Echoes receives a C&D letter from Square-Enix

10 May 2009 4:56AM EST - Update by Carnivol

ROM Hacks News

Chrono Trigger romhack project “Chrono Trigger: Crimson Echoes” and “all other Square-Enix-related ROM hacks” has apparently received a Cease & Desist, as suggested by both the latest newspost found on the Chrono Compendium and at the project’s official website.

The following is what was recently posted on the frontpage of the Chrono Compendium:

On May 8, we received a wide-reaching cease and desist letter from Square Enix, Inc. As with Chrono Trigger: Resurrection and Chrono Trigger Remake Project’s letters, we have uploaded the letter for viewing here as a matter of public interest.

We have decided to comply with Square Enix’s demands. Most of the Chrono Compendium webpages and forums will be unaffected by these changes. However, our compliance has the practical effect of ending the Compendium’s support for ROM modification projects of any kind, with regard to copyrighted Square Enix works such as Chrono Trigger, Radical Dreamers, and Chrono Cross. We have already destroyed all known copies of Chrono Trigger: Crimson Echoes and other modifications and projects. We have also shut down and made inaccessible any discussion boards used for the development of ROM-hacking fan projects on this website, including:

  • Chrono Trigger: Crimson Echoes
  • Chrono Trigger: Prophet’s Guile
  • Retranslation of Chrono Trigger
  • Chrono Trigger Re-amped
  • Chrono Trigger Rebirth
  • Chrono Trigger Azala Style

The official Crimson Echoes website website was updated and now only shows the following:

Chrono Trigger: Crimson Echoes was a fan project modification of the Chrono Trigger ROM begun in late 2004. Development continue thanks to a dedicated group of fans through 2009. By May 2009, the game featured ~35 hours of game play, 10 multiple endings, and 23 chapters, much like the original Chrono Trigger; it was around 98% complete. The plot featured the original cast as they struggled against a new villain risen from the legacy of Zeal.

The team planned to release Crimson Echoes on May 31, 2009 as the first feature-length fan Chrono series game, and an unprecedentedly exhaustive work in the ROM modification community. On May 8, 2009, Chrono Trigger: Crimson Echoes received a cease & desist letter,along with all other game modification activity (even research) at the Chrono Compendium. In compliance with the letter, the development team ceased development on the game, and existing modifications (including Prophet’s Guile) were taken down.

We thank those fans who followed the game’s development, and also those who poured countless hours into the vision of a fun, new Chrono game, made by fans for fans without copyright claim or intent to make profit.

We understand the frustration. I sincerely hope this action is a sign that Square Enix cares about the franchise and intends to produce future titles, and not merely a shortsighted legal exercise that will further alienate a tired, neglected fan-base. Signed ZeaLitY, Saturday May 9th, 2009

Super Mario 64: The Missing Stars Released!

06 May 2009 12:34PM EST - Update by messiaen

ROM Hacks News

This is the first ever “complete” hack of Mario 64, featuring brand new levels and missions. The game has been changed in many aspects, offering a fresh gameplay experience.

Main Features:

  • 38 stars in about 10 levels
  • A Day/night cycle replacing (most) act selectors
  • Choose to play as Mario or Luigi
  • Modified enemies, objects and bosses (too many to list!)
  • Custom music, including one original song (the town “night” music)
  • A new final boss fight which involves a new Mario powerup

There are also many ‘behind the scene’ modifications that make make this hack work: extended memory support, a new collision pointer system (lookup tables instead of hardcoded pointers), modified script commands and a bunch of other hacks.

Some hacks used in this game were written straight in C using a GCC compiler targeting MIPS and a set of header files/linker scripts to allow interaction with existing game code and functions. Source code for most modifications will also be released soon.

Phantasy Star IV Bug Fix Released by Sixfortyfive

20 June 2009 6:33PM EST - Update by Sixfortyfive

ROM Hacks News

All versions of the original retail release of Phantasy Star IV had one particularly nasty bug: when you leveled your party to 99 (the maximum), character stats would be applied incorrectly. Many stats were reduced or swapped between characters, and several attack skills could be wiped from your characters’ memory. Furthermore, the Japanese version had another bug: when Chaz (Rudy) learns Megid, it replaces Nazan. This romhack is a simple patch that fixes both of these bugs.

Seth’s stats and skillset still suffer from the level 99 bug. However, considering the minor role in which he plays in the game, this should not be of much concern. Leveling Seth to 99 does not affect any other characters.

Mortal Kombat II - Hidden Characters

05 March 2009 3:35PM EST - Update by MottZilla

ROM Hacks News

Mortal Kombat II features 3 hidden and unplayable characters Smoke, Noob Saibot, and Jade. If you attempt to play as them with Pro Action Replay cheats the game will crash as none are programmed for human control. This hack addresses that issue and fixes all crashing issues making them all playable. It also adds in game codes to pick a hidden character so no cheat device is needed. A few things were not addressed yet and will be added in a later version. Note that Kintaro and Shao Kahn are not human playable.

Wily Wars SRAM patch

26 February 2009 1:19PM EST - Update by Peter Liberty

ROM Hacks News

To quote from Mega Man PC:

The ROM version of Wily Wars doesn’t save properly: you need to rely on savestates… to access the final levels. To go around this, MottZilla has created this patch: it transforms the game’s internal saving method to a format more commonly supported by most Sega Genesis emulators. The end result: you can now save the game normally!

Pandora's Box 3rd Anniversary

14 February 2009 4:17AM EST - Update by Lenophis

ROM Hacks News

We’re back, and we have news! Pandora’s Box is now in its third year of development. During the past two years, there have been many features implemented. The list includes restoration of the game’s button configuration screen, a music box, Strago learning magic the way he should have, and then some.

We’ve also dabbled into many engine tweaks, the first and most prominent of them being a complete overhaul of the physical damage formula. This change is part of the massive balance overhaul we are still doing. Other engine tweaks include some additions to the battle and engine cores, as well. To get an idea of those changes, you can view the playlist set up at Youtube.

With a balance overhaul also comes many bug fixes, and in fact many bug fixes. To keep some sanity, a complete list of bug fixes was put together at Mnrogar’s Den. These bugs are being fixed to level the playing field on both sides. This will no doubt cause some gripes, but the only thing I can say to that is “if you want to play the broken system, play the broken game.”

But, enough about the past. We’re here to stay positive, and talk about the future. And that future is now. So, what’s new? To mark the occasion, we are proud to show another new feature recently implemented, a Doom Gaze radar (this is 60 megs!). This radar works like how you would expect a radar to work. If you get close to Doom Gaze, he will show up on the minimap. It will make finding him to be much easier than it ever was. Note, a Youtube version of this movie was made, but the quality of it turned out to be bad enough that the minimap was far too grainy to show off what this did. It has since been removed. Various and numerous attempts were also made to get the filesize of this movie down to a respectable level, but all attempts also made the minimap too grainy to show off this new feature.

“Use a screenshot, fool!”

That won’t show you how or when it works, despite anybody’s best efforts to do so. Either bite the bullet and download or simply ignore it. And yes, as a dialup user, this is a very hard thing for me to say, but I’m at wit’s end about this.

Anyway, another new feature, though not nearly as flashy or even as fancy, is one that will make dialogue nice. For whatever reason, Final Fantasy 6 never had a center tag, it instead used a tab tag. Well, we decided that the tab tag needed to go. In its place, a center tag. Ok, crappy job of building that one up.

Those that have been in RHDN’s IRC channel may have noticed me continuously bugging everybody for possible ideas that we could implement into the hack. Gemini did step forward with one, an item that will increase encounter rates. Specifically, this will double the encounter rate. A perfect gift for all of the masochistic grinders out there.

Finally, there’s something we’ve been wanting to show off for a while now. Earlier in development we toyed with changing some of the character spritesheets. One such example was a revision to Mog. We have since expanded on that, giving some alterations to Celes and Edgar.

On a sad note, I am reluctant to announce that I do not believe we’ll be able to get anymore new music into the hack. Those that have assisted in the past seemed to have moved on to bigger and better things. To counter this, some have suggested that we learn the inner workings of the SPC700 to get more songs in. However, we feel that delaying the project for another many months to learn the chip just to get a few more songs in is not worth it.

To wrap this up, I’ll say that we hope that 2009 will be the final year of development. I won’t put a date on when we’ll be done, because adding pressure will not ensure quality. We thank those that have been patient with us during this project’s development.
