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.

Is it just me, or is it confusing to keep track of which one is Levi and which one is Kumo? I swear, during the bombing mission sequence, it was Kumo that had lines that were pointing out the Cloud references. I dunno. Maybe it was just me being confused?

If I ever get to this bug these people are talking about, where the character cannot move, you know what I would do? Use the Control-Key method of movement. After which, I may try and figure out what the beef is.

Of course, I'm aware that the Control-key method of movement only works if one has the game engine, with the game running in "test play" mode, but it's a method to circumvent problems like this.
Whenever she decides to log into the site again she will see that people are encountering an error. She will most likely fix it WHEN SHE HAS TIME. Constantly posting will not get the error fixed any quicker(and you look like a whiny brat).

Marrend has offered a solution to anyone who gets stuck in this manner.
I've been waiting for a response from Krysty since 3rd January -.- ...I'm gonna leave the game installed in my PC jjust a bit more
Pretty sure Kyrsty's not got access to the internet right now guys.

You can transfer your savefile, but I wouldn't recommend it because there were some changes to the beginning and code. Feel free too but if it results in glitches, odd behaviour or your computer blowing up, don't blame me XD.

It's just that I levelled up most of my materias a lottttttt so I think I will find it hard to re-level the materia to the point i had them to.I mean most of them are nearly level 3 :3
I'm happy to see SorceressKyrsty hasn't abadoned this ...hahah it's halrious to see how far she has come from the conecpt idea to this point ^_^" even though it's glithed filled it amazing to see her detemintion even after reading at one point she lost the desire to finnish...seriously gurl ur amazing (well i hope i gave u some oompth even though u alreay know this hahah)
Just downloaded; been conscientious and read the readme file before doing playing. I have played dozens RPGXP games, I have those .dlls in the system32 folder, but when I try to launch the game all I get is the 'Failed to load script' message. Any suggestions?
