Everything… is everything in our existence just a replica of someone elses?

Your identity defines who you are. But what if you couldn’t have your own identity, or it was being eclipsed by someone elses? What would you do about it?
Kumo Atsureki is your typical 19 year old…if typical 19 year old did mercenary work for a living. His latest mission, however, will trigger a chain of events that will not only force him to face the past and define his identity, but uncover deadly secrets that have laid buried for generations. What is the C-Virus? Who is behind it? These questions and more await you…

Cosplay Crisis is a Final Fantasy crossover fan game that has been in the works for the last three years. Boasting custom battle graphics, Final Fantasy VII’s classic Materia system and remastered and remixed tracks (including Maybe Blue Fields Await and Still More Fighting), Cosplay Crisis is a unique Final Fantasy experience taking place in a new albeit similar world.

Cosplay Crisis is a complete full-length RPG (stemming upwards of 9 hours in length depending how you play). If issues DO crop up, please check this list of unfixable bugs before ranting at me about them ^^''

-Anything with materia.
-If you save on the world map once you have the Ragnarok, close the program, and re-open it, your ship will be back in Tokyo. For the love of christ, don't do it!
-The 'Blasting Zone' animation appears over the Battle Status. I fiddled with it far too much as it is, so I left it.
-There's some issues with the item menu and the battle status when in battle. I have tried MULTIPLE TIMES to fix this, and haven't been successful. I'm sorry guys, I'm not a programmer, and I couldn't figure out what was wrong.
-Some bosses in the final battles don't appear immediately. I don't know why that happens- I've tried fiddling with it but couldn't fix it.
-Common event skills don't update the battle status straight away (1000 Needles and Shock). I tried to fix this, too, but couldn't fathom a way to fully refresh the battle status through the common event call...so it has been left.
-If you try to save when CC is lagging or you have a ridiculous amount of saves (depends on your computer- my one is quite powerful, so I have about 45 saves and don't get this) the save system MAY hang. I recommend playing CC without anything else open so it has lots of RAM to chew through. RMXP's fault, not mine. The anti-'script is hanging' script didn't play well with CC, before you suggest it.
-If you use a Kumo/Levi limit break while critical, the characters won't reappear immediately. I'm not sure why this is, and haven't got a clue how to fix it.

Addressing something important

Hi All, I bet you're all wondering where this notif is coming from and why.

Recently I've waxed nostalgic over the game, as it's now less than six months to the game's true 10 year anniversary (2.2's upload date was Feb 2012 I think), as well as some new people coming into play the game. Although it has been 10 years, it seems Cosplay Crisis still attracts new players from time to time, even though they don't interact with the gamepage.

This brought to my attention something: the use of the word "r*tard" in the game's intro. This is a pretty serious slur, and I had entirely forgotten about its presence, but seeing it I felt a pang of guilt and disappointment in my younger self.

I obviously don't speak like that anymore, and while I could make the excuse of it being a 'different time' back then, honestly 2011-2012 it was still a pretty shit word to use. Kumo, the culprit, isn't exactly a thoughtful noodle about it either, and I have a vague recollection of putting it in to reflect the fact he can be kind of a dick, but regardless of my intentions it has no place in the game at all, and especially not one that is not countered or addressed as being shitty by the rest of the cast.

So, if you saw it and felt hurt by it, by my use of it, I apologise, deeply and sincerely. It was wrong, I was wrong to use it, and I completely understand if you choose not to forgive me for it, because there are no excuses. Please do not try to excuse me in the comments here, nor do not accept the apology if this meant nothing to you - it is not for you. I should've known better, and that's the long and short of it.

My gut tells me there are probably other examples somewhere in the game. I could very much just upload a version with those pieces of dialogue removed, but...given the state of the game, I might as well do another bug purge, fix up mapping errors, and repair any incongruities in the narrative, if I'm in a position of obligation to upload. I still remember exactly what the plot was, ten years after the fact.

So consider this a formal announcement of an Anniversary Edition/3.0, which I'll release 10 years to the day of 2.2's upload. More likely than not, I'll still have bugs. The fact the game runs is a miracle in and of itself. But it won't have frankly alarming and poor word choices which'll be nice.

I'll save any further details for later, as the first part of this is really the important bit, but feel free to ask questions (or request features?) in the comments below.


For anyone between the observation tower and the motorbike battles, there is a rather annoying glitch that popped up. I've already pmed her it in my third list of bugs and I'm sure she will get a patch up asap.
I can't beat the first battle against the motorbikes.
If you have the glitch where the graphics are messed up, click on the latest blog, and download the patch 6 slots down. Otherwise if you are simply having trouble beating it, just be sure to use healing items/cure materia. I personally found the battle to be rather easy.
Am I missing something here? The game starts with a scene where a bunch of characters are standing around a car, then the game jumps to the bridge and the battle starts. I have no abilities except for Plasma Burst, which I can't use and no items. The motorbikes kill me in about 2 rounds.
That sound's really odd. My guess is that whenever she reuploaded the game, she forgot to change the starting location. Where your at now had a glitch I've been helping her fix.

Well, we will find out whenever she checks back here.
if squallbutts was a misao category i'd win every damn year
i am a dick, please ignore
Yeah, but don't break the page while in your rampages D:!
I'm a dog pirate
Demonlord, it might be best if you stop, based on the evidence at hand.
Yeah, I was just trying to help her fix up the game, but seeing it's stressing her out this much, you might be right.

Edit; After a couple minutes of thought, I think I will. I was sticking to pm's for the more major stuff, but seeing as most of the bugs are minor things (only a couple major game breakers), it would probably be for the best. A bunch of minor bugs won't kill the game, and it's not worth if it it's stressing her out this badly.

Can I do that for you? I hate ungrateful bitches! hahaha

I'm just playing, relax.

Demonlord5000 is a well known dedicated tester, he's just trying to help, dear. :)
She's over reacting based (probably not considering how many times she's reuploading this thing) on the amount of bugs she missed and having to reupload it with Australian Internet if I may add. It's just frustration on her part. I had this issue with Princess Princess too and I almost exploded (Tho mine is just 71 mb). So really.

I remember one of the bug reports being a minor spelling mistake and she exploded having to update the game again and decided not to until something major happens again.

So yes, that comment was absolutely unnecessary.
It's cool... on my part, I'm just messing around with the situation.

Women feel more anxiety than us men cause of all the hormones and shit lol...

Woman: where's the baby! where's the baby! I need to go shopping! XD

I have women in my life, I understand.
Circumstance penalty for being the bard.
Please nix the misogynistic comments. That is very not cool.

This. It's just annoying to look at.

I have recently been lurking on other RM sites, and I feel like there is a LOT more passion on this site. Krysty, you should take a break from this game. You worked extremely hard on it to finish it for us, the fans. Take a breather and do something you want to do! It's no longer worth doing if you're not having fun doing it.


Enjoying myself while playing!

I'm sorry about getting so frustrated. I've had a lot going on recently and I am overreacting a tad, I would've edited my post but my browsers are being a tad screwy right now. CharlesGabriel, I don't really appreciate being patronized and stereotyped because I'm female. There's a lot of other factors at work here besides my gender.

I do plan on taking a bit of a break for a while- I've learnt a lot from this game and hopefully next time I won't have the same issues. A lot of things are basically because of how long this game has been in development- old code, remapping, teleports that go to old exits, etc. Like I said in IRC every time I try to fix something something else breaks.

I'm glad you're enjoying yourself. I know about the current error with Kumo appearing in the intro when he shouldn't because I forgot to set the correct graphic (I was testing the error with Crazy Motorcycle) but I think it's minor enough to leave it as it is.

I'd better be off. Puddean is nagging for I, Sammich, to watch Supernatural, and I think I'm going to oblige!

Well, I'm just glad to see your back to yourself. I know ya need a break after all this, so I'll just put it like this. My testing is on hiatus till further notice. What I mean by that, is that I know you have other projects under your belt, and it's gonna be a good while before you ever want to touch this one again. Just let me know whenever (if ever), you feel like working on this again and I'll give ya a hand. It can be a month or a year, if I'm still around, the offer stands.

Also, don't let the minor stuff I found get ya down. I consider myself a skilled tester, and I tend to find an overbundance in any game I test, not just yours.) The minor things don't really hinder the gameplay all that much, and when it comes down to it, you made a good game with a good story, and I unfortunatly picked it up after battles were made easier :(.

I don't know if it helps, but here's my philosophy with minor stuff. One has to be able to go back and laugh at there own mistakes, lest we overstress ourselves. At any rate...I'm rambling a bit, and I guess what I'm trying to say, is just take a break from game making for awhile, kick back, relax, and be glad ya released something. Enjoy supernatural (I used to watch that myself).
