Our stance on "repro carts" AND Updates!!

Just an FYI...  ( We know it's been a while...)

We DO NOT endorse ANY reproduction cartridges of Chrono Trigger: Flames of Eternity!! >:(

Flames of Eternity is UNDER CONTINUED DEVELOPMENT! Which means when you buy one of these repro carts, your game WILL be outdated eventually, and you WILL NOT be able to update it.

You're also getting only HALF of the experience! Flames of Eternity is DESIGNED to be used with the Chrono Trigger MusiCompanion program AND the included soundtracks that go with it! That's updated and NEW music that you can NOT get from a 16bit system.

These carts are providing us with NOTHING being given to us for each one sold, our countless hours are basically being stolen not only from us (Enhasa Enhancements), The RubyDragoons (retired group), and Kajar Laboratories (retired group).

Because these things CONTINUALLY pop up, our work is ONLY going to be officially released on GBATEMP.net now. A WONDERFUL emulation website.

You can obtain officially made SNES Pis with Flames of Eternity loaded onto it for you so that you can play it on your TV like an ACTUAL console (Not to mention that you can add your own games to it!)

We have NOT stopped working on the game, these things take time, and again, we are not a professional game studio by any means, we're a small group of hobbyists and a maker working on this in our own free time.
 As evidenced by this video:


We have not stopped development. WE HAVE A TITLE SCREEN NOW!
So here's a bit of a teaser for you.

We're still working on the additional dungeon in 2305 AD.

So for those who have waited and followed us faithfully, your patience WILL be rewarded!

Share and enjoy!

  10. Hi, I would like to know if anyone would be interested in a CTM Edit that I would like to upload with Giro & Midnights Permission. Basically I'm gonna edit the CTM such that the music flows better and doesn't end unexpectedly to allow for more fluid & immersive gameplay. Im sure that it would improve the experience of FOE. I also intend to change some of the tracks on the CTM since I "No offense" felt that it didn't capture the chrono essence & feel. Guys lemme know if you want it. It would take a reasonable amount of time but in the end i'm sure it will be worthwhile.

    1. I for one, would welcome this very much! It'd be neat if the community shared their own personal song selections (assuming others have done as such) in case others wanted to try out various soundtracks. Of course, I imagine it'd be up to each person to track down the MP3 files on their own unless the person sharing went the extra mile and provided them for download. All in all, I like this idea quite a bit...you have my vote good sir!

  12. Any possibility of porting the MusiCompanion tracks into an MSU-1 version of the hack, so we can play FoE with the intended music on a real SNES using an SD2SNES?

  18. Looking to purchase a legitimate copy of this (i.e. from you guys) that will be playable as a cartridge on the RetroN 5. Is this a planned reality? I'd rather not purchase any of the copies on Etsy based on your lack of endorsement (and more importantly, lack of payment from the Etsy sellers).

  19. Awesome game. You should set up an email for suggested changes. I noticed the dialogue was a little lack luster at times. If you'd Like ideas on improvements, you definitely get the community playing your games involved.

    1. bump, i check the site they said they'd release the new patches from now on and found nothing...only thing stopping me from playing this game was the fact that there was no intro lol every game needs an intro/title screen.

  22. why cant i board the epoch without it freezing?

  23. Is there a reason why the music is missing elements and is royally screwed up after you go to the Ocean Palace after recruiting Ayla? When the scenarios start where you collect the Rainbow Shards the music goes completely shit. Even after the scenarios are over the music for all the areas are screwed up for the remainder of the game. Are you aware of this or am I just going crazy?

    1. when they swapped some instruments around, it went over the limit of total bytes allowed for any given song, this is an issue on accurate emulators and real hardware. Sadly the developers haven't been around here in ages. With a little bit of work you can change back the samples with a hex editor, rom map, and a clean copy of the game.
