Chrono Trigger Platinum

Hack of Chrono Trigger

Description:

Chrono Trigger is rather easy for most of the game. The author figured that someone ought to rectify this!

This is a hack that simply makes Chrono Trigger more challenging (albeit not to an extreme degree), and thereby more fun (according to the author!)

Because Chrono Trigger was already pretty well balanced, this was an easy hack to implement compared to the other Platinum hacks which took the author literally years.

  • NOTE: The patch requires a headered ROM. Applying to a non-headered ROM will result in corrupted enemy data and an unplayable game.

Here’s a precise breakdown of the changes -

  • Doubled Offense of normal enemies until the Future and quadrupled Offense of normal enemies thereafter (except those with an Offense of 1).
  • Made all normal enemies in Magic Cave and Magus Castle have 16 Water and Shadow Defense (except where stat was already higher than 16).
  • Doubled HP of bosses and normal enemies in prison scene.
  • Doubled both Offense and HP of Uber-Mutants, M-Machine, Queen Zeal semi-final and final, Yakkra XIII, Super Slash, Flea Plus, Great Ozzie, Son of Sun, Flame, and Lavos final boss.
  • Made Ruminator Charm nothing.

Patching problem fixed!

Reviewed By: Erudition on 18 Apr 2016

Ok, problem is resolved. The headerless SNES rom (which bizarrely matched those checksums) was the issue, sorry. Game is fully playable if you add a header and then apply the patch.

Thanks for making your platinum versions of RPGs, by the way. I enjoyed FFVII’s and will now enjoy this one!
