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.


How long until this game is finished? :)
if squallbutts was a misao category i'd win every damn year
I've said it a lot, but soonsoonsoonsoonsoonsoonsoonsoonsoonsoonsoonsoonsoonsoonsoonsoonsoonsoonsoonsoonsoonsoonsoonsoonsoonsoonsoon

I'm testing and bug repairing.
Massive congratulations on finishing :>

Yeah it completed,have been waiting for the complete version for a awhile.Just downloaded it.
I must have made a mistake when I extracted the files I'm getting an error "unable to find file graphics/titles/001-splash-01.

Have you decompressed all the folders? That's the first graphic the game asks for and I've had others run the game fine. You should be able to actually go into the graphics folder and find that graphic in there.

I am also having an issue with playing. I think I unzipped everything properly, but I get an error: "RGSS102E.dll could not be found". Do I have to do anything with the .dll so they can be found? Thanks and congrats on being done!

EDIT: Wow... I feel really special. Almost an entire 2 seconds passed before I realized where I messed up (didn't copy the .dlls to the system folder). Sorry for being so special!

EDIT2: Actually, copying them to the system folder didn't help, but putting them in the same folder as the game made it work. Just thought I'd share in case anyone else has the same issue.

Alright ^^. I think I might add an extra page on this profile with the game's readme and put that info into it.
I'm an idiot, i missed the graphics file when i was extracting
In case anyone else has issues with extracting, it could also glitch due to being double foldered. What I mean by that is, theres an audio folder within the audio folder, and then that folder has all the stuff. I had to manually take out the extra folder to run the game.

Anyways, back to what I came here to say. This game so far is absolutely loaded with passability errors. Is this one of the things you couldn't fix? I can either keep a list of every passability error I find during it, or if you have no way to fix them, I can leave them unmentioned. I needed to check here first due to the sheer amount of them, and the fact for some of them, there easier to explain with a screenshot.

Tell passability to go fuck itself.

Whenever I tried to fix on place another error would crop up, you suddenly couldn't get places, blah, blah, blah. I probably spent more time trying to fix passability then anything else. Half the time I COULDN'T fix it because the tileset was bullshit, and if I made it impassable other crap popped up.

I hate passability SO MUCH. You do not understand how much I hate passability.

Feel free to keep a list. I probably won't be fixing it any time soon.
Ahh alright. I had a feeling it was one of those things you were having trouble with. Part of me wants to keep a just in case list for ya...but the other half says I shouldn't bother due to the sheer amount.

I think I will the list just in case though...as my bug testing half prevents me from not doing so. I'll keep a seperate passability error section in notepad, away from any other bugs I find. It's definetly not a common tileset, so I can see it being buggy.

I do like the nice touch with going down the stairs. I grabbed the items on the way down, and even found the gym message since I tried to go into a room (every single time), and even found your broken staircase. So yeah, despite the passability stuff, I do like the game so far. If anything, my one complain besides the passability stuff would be the dramatic changes in scenery. It takes quite the huge jump at times from one map to the next. Anyways, I'll get to all that once I'm done testing, since my notes are in notepad. Didn't want ya to think I was being too critical though.

Yeah I tried to fix the changing scenery up a bit but there really wasn't a lot I could do besides making a bunch of new maps and areas...which I didn't want to do. I did stretch some of the later stuff out a bit so the transitions don't feel so sudden.
Walking out of the abandoned house in the Tokyo Back Alleys appears to glitch you into an impassable area to the left of the Cure materia on the ground. Considering that you get a Gate Key item inside, I'm guessing that it's important to go in there.

(The first time this happened, I was walking back to the save point after beating the alley three-enemy boss and realized, 'oh, hey, I never checked this door.' That really sucked.)

Alright, I'll patch that. Should have it up in a few minutes.
Don't forget to check your mail occasionally. I sent my first set of bugs on over a couple days ago, and I've been slightly busy, but the next batch will be coming soon. I'll update my game with that patch while I'm here lol.
Thanks for the prompt fixes! I decided to take a break while waiting on that, so it's good to have something to focus on for periods between exam prep again.
I continued playing past that point. I still can't seem to exit the back alley house without getting stuck in the same place, even after downloading the fix, but I continued on regardless. But after the Gold Saucer events, I seem to get stuck on a barrel when entering the back alley through the subway. Since I have to pass through that area, it seems to be a game-breaking bug.

I think I may have forgotten to save that change...alright. I'm uploading a second patch with a fix, and I'll reupload the game tonight.
