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.


if squallbutts was a misao category i'd win every damn year
Will I be able to put my hands on Kyer pants? :D
Wait...what? o.o
So have you figured out a release date or will you be releasing another demo.
if squallbutts was a misao category i'd win every damn year
I don't have a specific release date. It'll be done when it's done, but right now I'm finalizing graphics and things like that- final stretch basically.
I'm asking about hentai :D

Comon FF7 was so boring that way... ;>
i get to the scene at mcdonalds and it repeats if i go back and it says something like cant find face/graphic or something like that after it finishes second time. For some reason thats the only scene i get cause i go to find levi hes not at his house and i cannot get into any of the houses.
if squallbutts was a misao category i'd win every damn year
...Did you try pressing Enter on the doorway of the blue house? It's the map straight after the maps with the high rises. It should definitely be accessible after you finish the McDonalds scenes. Try pressing enter on both sides of the door.

I'll fix that repeat issue. I forgot to consider it since the switch that blocks the entryway happens after the mission with Levi, and his house is on a much earlier map :x
there are also some areas like the plane lower lvls that you can walk across counters and also desks and furniture in both kumos apt. and levis house not major but a little annoying. IN the scene in the forest Kumo is nowhere in sight but his dialogue still runs. all i see is the girl that looks like rinoa. Also lol if you talk to shadz from the side after you "rescue him" he has no clothes on. Also who is kyer? she never talks.
Thought you said FF13 wasnt in this game. theres a lightning cosplayer in the game. In the fight with clarese she attacked and it said something like a nomethod error or something. Good game up until that error. Error happens if miri use reg attack too.
I can't switch characters to change materia.
I think i know why the error pops up. correct me if im wrong but doesnt FF7 & FF8's Battle system only allow 3 active party members and FF9 allows 4. If thats the case you need to fix it so the game recognizes which Battle system you use. I have 4 ppl in my party but im using FF7's Battle system and miri doesnt show up in my party selection screen. Now i took Kyver out and she doesnt show up in party selection but miri does. Now Kyver doesnt show up at all. But now i find the nomethod error under the materia shop list. Nothings there when you open it but if you try to select it theres an error. *sigh* Now the materia is there after i went back into the game. im guessing the materia shop nomethod is a random error. On another note: the Battle arena Event is also repeating if you go back into the room where the BA went "haywire".
Nvm me about having 4 party members. idk how i got kyer at the begining of the game when i was supposed to get her in event square. when i try to sleep at the in in the Gold Saucer the screen goes out but doesnt come back in. Idk why i slept at the inn when the save point was right there to heal me :P. Wow this list is getting long but during events i somehow get miri character whern its supposed to be me controlling kumo on ragnarok and miri is standing somewhere else. idk how your testers missed all these errors. Also the hud from the motorcycle event is still up on the screen even after i finished it and on the bridge during the motorcycle event you can go of onto the water and get stuck. Now *sigh* for some reason when i tell shadz im ready to go it kicks me off the ragnarok and i cant get back on and i guess its stuck cause i tried reloading but it never takes off. i guess im finished with this game unless i can somehow get the ragnarok to take off cause i cant get anywhere without it. if you talk to the Battle arena guy from the right he doesnt have the battle arena option and thats where also i got the nomethod error regarding materia.

wtf why is Kyer in your party- probably left in by accident. Kyer doesn't join your party until later. That's why you have the error regarding 4 members. The game should disallow 4 members, but scripts are ignorant and mean. Cosplay Crisis is a 3-member party game (like FF7).

Drew, Q & W. It was covered in the materia tutorial.

Commandezero, thanks for pointing this stuff out :p most of it seems to have been missed by my testers. >:/

BTW where was that no method error with materia? It's because the call for the shop has been written incorrectly. Most places have it fixed but I must've missed it.
Been playing the Lite version for just over an hour now and am really enjoying it, all good times and no bugs. Good work!
Kyrsty, there are some weird things going on. When I first got control of Kumo, I opened up the menu. When I closed it, Kumo said he can't leave until he gets dressed. So I left anyway, because real heroes don't need clothes. Anyway, I found myself in a seemingly endless stairwell where I found two piles of infinite Energy Drinks... I got to the top and then the stairs were broken so I had to walk all the way down. So I talked to the Squall guy and my clothes magically appeared, but then promptly disappeared later. Then I traveled west and talked to the train guy, who told me I needed $10 for tickets and then the game locked up. Not crashed, because the music still played and all the NPCs were still walking around, I just lost control of Kumo.

How'd you get out of the room without changing? There should be a loop in the event that makes you take a step back into the room. Blargh.

As for most of what you mentioned, yeah, the stairwell is long but so are most building stairwells. There are elevators on the 24th, 8th and 3rd floors.
And I'll fix the energy drinks -.-'

As for the game locking up, I'm not sure why it did that. I'll check the event and see if it's a move route problem (probably).

I was meant to take the Lite edition down, because it's still littered with loop bugs it seems.

Jaben, I'm glad you're enjoying it! :)

By walking out. Nothing really stopped me. I did trigger an event that makes me step back, but it was by opening/closing the menu. Nothing actually stopped me from walking out.
I love the ideas(tasty bites sparking the imagination..maybe even alil twisted? :>> but with bright sparks of creative "heroes" light) you have for your creations and im downloading crisis(final fantasy mixs residentevil holy f***ing A!! :>>>) now to give it a try and hopefully BloodRose and darksoul(those two games sound amazing) have downloads in the near future.

sorry to hear about the stroke of hdd badluck but i know you will overcome.
I got a problem. I don't know if anyone else got it, but when I defeat the first boss at the beginning and the black screen comes nothing else happens except only the music is playing for me :O

That's how the demo ends. Sorry. The full game should be out pretty soon.
