			Programmers Door Preliminary Run Through(Prologue)

	For those just starting the video game Chrono Cross, one of the multiple
endings you can obtain when in New Game + mode is
a developers ending of sorts. However the strange thing about this ending is
there are no actual programmers anywhere to be
seen, only developers and story writers who did things for the battle mechanics.
When you walk through, you basically have a
choice of talking to everyone in the ending, and doing various little funny
intricate sidequests. Many of these sidequests were
pointless little advents of wasting time, that is until recently when the truth
was discovered. As you enter the development ending
take two flights of stairs up to the top, there you will see a mysterious
"door". Yet if you attempt to check it with the cursor, it will
exclaim it is "Completely Locked". This door is known as the Locked Programmers
Door, the biggest secret and oddity in the
developers ending and now you have seen it with your own eyes, and most likely
have memorized how to get to it. This door has
been the main focus for over a period of many months, as no one, especially not
the developers of the game, would release any real
information regarding it. It was a secret that most likely was meant to remain
one. Only the help and info lines would regard the
developers ending and the programmers door, and even then they all said it was
"because they couldn't change the scenery" making
the entire reason the door was left. In this FAQ you will discover the truth,
what the programmers were intentionally hiding, and what
really was behind the Development Ending and mysterious Programmers Door which
sat with no place to go. In addition, this guide will
give all information and retrospect regarding the Programmers Door, and every
secret and chronological gimmick that comes with it.
One could say this is the definitive Chrono Cross Programmers door on the
internet, and in this respect, you'd be right. While it was never
really shown, the Programmers Door quest is an intricately woven pattern of
intrigue and mystery, tightly bound together in one single
package. Information in this FAQ comes from "The Locked Programmers Door(the
FINAL installment)" and other heralding topics which
have carried this infamous trilogy through, and are saved to the authors hard
drive on disk. If any data is damaged/altered by any other users
or hackers in any way which has been permanently ingrained to hard disk, there
will be legal and other wise harmful acts investigated accordingly
under state and federal law.  Mainly the contents and purpose of this FAQ is to:

- Provide a walk through of all the various insightful side quests which were
hidden in the Development ending, including all add ons and additions
pertaining to
- Provide sets of codes created by the gameshark which can be used by everyone,
to unlock and unfold the mysteries of the Developers ending right
before their very eyes
- To give insight into the minds of the programmers, who created this mysterious
ending and set it up the way they did on purpose with regard to keeping
of their secret
- Give a detailed on site map of the Development ending, including how to get
where you need to and where to go to accomplish which task or event in
any given order
- Show the truth once and for all behind the Chrono Cross Programmers door, and
why it was locked away for so long

After reading and understanding everything, continue on

************************Walkthrough to the Programmers Door and Development

	The hardest thing to understand about the CC Development ending is it is
totally sporadically random, and events you accomplish, never occur the same way
twice. And since every time you go through the game you take a different path or
branch, it can have strange and abnormal effects on the way the ending is setup
For instance once you get to the ending, the man in front of the door will say
something to the tune of: "There are many different people in the world. Find
yourself and then you may be able to discover whats inside. .......... is for
However, if you are to travel through the ending while completing certain parts
of the story which deal with Serges identity you advance the plot in a totally
different way.
If you decide to complete the game in such a way where Serge has issues ever
completely agreeing with people or discovering his dark side, it effects how
things go. The idea of
and purpose of the way this game is played in these circumstances, is to see
that Serge finds himself. For instance, using Harle to obtain the Black Relic
will skip an entire important
story segment. Now go back to the man who stands in front of the door. He will
be saying "........" with nothing else coming from his mouth. Thus since
"........." is for specification, what
you have done believe it or not, is changed the outcome of the game where Serge
has found himself and taken on a new "him". The strange thing is Serge is not
the only person it
applies to. When you go to the music room, you may recognize a mysterious
shadowy figure standing near the door. Approach it and it tells you to leave but
it is Kid. You learn in the game
that Kid is actually Schala, and she likes certain kind of music, the kind that
brings up the past for her. The analogy behind these avenues is simple:

Story A1: Serge treats others in a way which he himself usually lives as during
the game, Harle takes the black Relic, Serge recognizes his purpose before
entering the Sea of Eden.
Man in front of door changes his speech to "............". You may wonder what
or how it occurred.

Well in story A1, Serge acted differently between Story B where you actually
have to fight the time devourer to get to the developer ending(during new game
+)and meet the man at the door.
Therefore, the story which effected the change was not in the story leading up
to getting into the development ending, but the one from the preceding. Thus as
many different ways as it's
possible to complete Chrono Cross, as many different strange odd and
unexplainable events occur inside the development ending. This is the strange
thing about it.

Story C2: Kid takes on the role of Serge and throughout the game completely pays
attention to others, ignoring the duties of herself, Kid is saved by the Hydra
Humor from Norris, is rejected by Serge
when trying to join in Termina. Walking into the music room and playing her 3
favorite tracks, 21, 64, and 15, Kid suddenly does not appear in her shadow
form, but instead presents herself in a red thief
costume, you see first at Cape Howl. Again the way it happened is puzzling.

Well once again in story C2, Kid was primarily giving orders rather then taking
them, she was making the role of Serge be her domain, something that is not
normal to the CC flow. But particularly
when her thieves outfit came up, it represents her own pride and gleam as a
thief, giving out the orders rather then taking them. But according to the songs
she heard, it caused her to want to take
on this role so to speak. It's very interesting because almost all secrets the
programmers have left in the developers ending are like this.

After experimenting with the criss crossing of storylines, it's time to pay
visit to the main center: The music room. Here you can do a number of things but
they must be in order and in no way
should you not follow the instructions.

Enter with Serge's Spectra Swallow Equipped and enter in and out of your menu,
checking the Status. Once you get back out, Kid will be in her orphanage costume
wearing it from the top down.
The reason this occurs is Serge's identity is taking on a color or station of
passage which Kid remembers, causing her to immediately come out of the shadows
in that particular orphanage outfit.
It's very interesting how the programmers have outlined this and when looked at
closely you can only guess how well it was done:

Regular swallow: No effect, kid stays shadow
Mastermune: Same as previous
Copper swallow: Same as previous
Stone swallow: Same as previous
Silver swallow: Same as previous
Spectra swallow: Causes kid to appear in original Orphanage costume

After this event occurs, Kid will now appear off screen to be nodding her head
up and down to the music as if a beat was going on in the room. At this point
you should take the time to play the
musical tracks carefully:

21- Kid will usually like, nodding her head sporradically. Keep on it for as
long as possible when she's not nodding particularly if you have met the
requirements previously for her thieves outfit
15- This track Kid really likes, she will nod her head a lot and very often to
the beat of the music, but there is no way to tell when she'll stop or start
saying no again so carefully pay attention too
65- This track which is basically the fire burning theme of her Orphanage, will
get her very distraught. Do not play it unless neccesary
09- She seems to like this track regardless of what time you play it at

However it is important to note one thing: Regardless of your preset actions,
anytime Kid nods yes more times, the track is good, and must be kept for the
effect, any time she shakes her head no more times,
on any given musical piece it means the track is bad, and must be changed as
soon as possible. What the programmers were doing here is hard to follow, but
with the right details you can stay on track.

Most likely after the required have been completed, Kid will next change to her
Thieve's Outfit, which is red.

It's at this point you need to continually play the crystal theme(52) which
reminds herself of Schala and the entire fiasco with Lavos, in order to cause
her to sporadically change into her white gown.
This part gives you access to a new state of Kids character, and it's integral
for the planned patterns
If Kid has successfully turned into her white gown, you now have the chance to
give her leeway enough to pickpocket the guy next door.
You may have noticed how she constantly talks about nonchalantly, that she is
not trying to steal from the guy in the corner. In reality she
is, but without getting this far it is impossible to make her steal successful.
The point of continually playing the tracks, until you feel Kid has
found herself(her schala self that is) is because it makes it possible for Kid
to pickpocket the man in the corner, giving an item which does not
appear on any menu, just like the key of the ghost ship. The trade is obtained
in almost the same way, but without the exact timing, and knowledge
of preset events it can be extremely difficult triggering it. That is why this
FAQ is here to help in any way possible.

Remember that as you enter or exit the menu, Kid will have the chance to then
change her outfits and get closer to pickpocketing the man. Keep on
continually entering in and out of your menu, as it is one of the fastest ways
to speed along all changes.

If you exit the programmers music room, at any time, and do not take time to
equip that weopon you will be started over and Kid will have
reverted back to shadow next time you enter. This frustrating setback is what
sets apart it from the rest of the quest.

The key has no use, talking to various people they will not say anything about
it. We now believe the key to have some other form of a use, but that is in the
speculations in the next section. Read below now to get the barebones on the FAQ
surrounding the programmers door:

Using the Gameshark tool enhancer, we were able to create codes to open every
single door in Chrono Cross. These codes can be used on any gameshark as long
not 2.1 or below.

*******UPDATE******** It seems hacking in the developers room using Gameshark
PROs has become more of a chore then we anticipated, with constant PSX freezing
up glitches which
make it impossible to consistently hack. Before the week is out, we will most
likely all be using PSX Mod chips just like me so that hacking in the
development ending is no longer a pain or struggle,
and everything can be done with much ease and restful breath.

*********************************Theories regarding the development

	In all accordances of what we found, it seems that the key was likely
going to be originally a part of a trading game, this as far as people could
speculate to its actual use or purpose,
after all a dummied out item like that found in the development ending made
little or no sense, even though all of the development ending made little to no
sense. Still though a key not on the
menu was the strangest thing so far, and if indeed meant to go somewhere, where
coult it actually go???? What speculation had run rampant for ages, for how the
key could be used or possibly
replaced. Maybe traded away??? It seems like a key never really in your
inventory would not go anywhere. But then again perhaps not???

	The "costumes kid wore" were actually based upon what equipment you had on
in every instance. Well after checking this several times we verified it is not
true. Specific equipment
limited to the "Spectra Swallow" is the only change that can be physically
effected. Otherwise, playing the music tracks, and how you play the games are
one hundred percent in back of the
effects and strange events that go in the development ending.

	Crono could be gotten by talking to certain characters in order in the
development ending. Though many suggestions illude to this, the corny and often
pointless discussions which changed the accent of characters,
lighting in the rooms, and speech patterns of the individuals had little or
nothing to do with anything else other then jest. One could speculate on forever
there was a connection, but as far as hackers have dug through
this CD it can't amount to more then that at this time.

	You could *never* open the Programmers door in Chrono Cross and nothing
was around that area, because Walk Through Walls regardless of how many times it
crashed/glitched up proved it.
This was proven not to be true, we hacked and completed all the codes including
the ones to open the programmers door. Granted the animation for any of the
doors is not in it, that's a graphic modification
we're still in beta stages of testing with.

	At one point in the game Marle was found here. This is definitely not
true, after scouring every inch of the second CD, no NPC data whatsoever could
be discovered on the infamous Marle.
While surely a great imagination and thought of glee to have this possible, it
most likely was not, with no mentions of it anywhere whatsoever.

	The programmers ending originally had programmers. Not true. No one in the
developers ending was ever a programmer, only a developer strangely. At one
point there was never any
sign of the programmers. For one reason or another they were never intended to
be a part of this game, or were they hiding out???

******************************The truth exposed regarding the Development

	The truth is aside from all the theories, the Development Ending was
originally the Debug room for Chrono Cross. This room was locked away and
dummied out on purpose, by and for the
programmers so they could run their pre beta testing systems, and debug the game
without any nosy gamers messing with their controls. They locked away the rest
of the Debug Room behind the
Programmers Door itself, making an insane twist of plots and sequences leading
up to it which no gamer could figure out, only a programmer. The inside of the
Programmers Room looks like this:

	Inside it is completely black, walls are front to back and you can walk
around the room just like any, the stairs will stop in that part of the room
however, not allowing you to continue. We found a way
finally around this however, with an existing Room Modifier code we hacked. With
it we were able to scour every Room ever in there of CC, including any removed
and otherwise still beta type rooms.
Unfortunately, none of Crono's NPCs were found inside, but many are still a
wonder to behold, and leave many intricate memories of what the Debug Room was
But just for the record, I am posting Divine Dragon Lloyd's rare Sprigg
Doppelgang NPC codes here anyway, along with his authorization on the project
which he made.
Even though Crono wasn't found, it doesn't mean it isn't possible we'll get him
in the future and update this FAQ, as well as the others with information and
all codes pertaining to it.

Codes work for all sharks, except 2.1 and below.

This part of the FAQ will be updated constantly, with add ins on Cronos, Darios,
Fleas, and any other once accessible NPC in the game Chrono Cross.

******************************Questions and Answers
How do you get into the development ending??
Complete the game once, then on the second time using new Game + beat the time
devourer with only Serge.
How do you get to the Programmers Door??
Walk straight up the stairs when you enter the room, and on the next floor lies
the door.
How do you get into the Programmers Door??
Input the gameshark code provided in this FAQ, and walk straight inside.
How do you use the Room Location modifier??
Input the gameshark code provided in this FAQ, and find Serge in any room.
How do you use the various character in battle codes??
Input the gameshark code for sprigg's doppelgangs or battle animation already
provided in either of these FAQs, put the relief charm
to active, and simply start the battle. You will see that character in fighting.
How come I can't activate the debug room and do whatever I want??
The debug room is deactivated, no longer working for the average gamers use.
It's desolate and abandoned, it was only
during the debugging of the game that the programmers had it in action. Further
updates and continuations of this FAQ or versions
will provide more information regarding our success in getting everything in
fully activated again.
How do I see the insides of these rooms??
Most of the rooms will be black or not active so that isn't really a question
that can be properly answered. But, regardless
walk around the area and see what you run into, it does have things. This main
part of the FAQ will be updated with many Gameshark PRO hacks,
and otherwise codes that are made as we continue to progress in the development
room. However, as stated above we will first need to have everyone
obtain modchips for their PSX, to eliminate all the crashing/freezing glitches
which occur in hacking without one.
Are there any other FAQs being done currently??
I'm working on several, currently almost complete and fully ready to send off my
Radical Dreamers FAQ and translation, and in pre beta development
of a lost Aeris Ressurection Subquest guide, but that is for the video game FF7,
and has nothing whatsoever to do with what we are doing here.

indeed a lie. He did finally admit to it, but it's not all bad, after all we did
discover removed scenes. And Japan did get differences we have now almost
completely corrected. Thanks for writing.
From "Hi Zelda, nice to meet you! ^_^ my name is Alex, i'm

Mode Codes for GameShark ? I have GameShark version 2.3 if you have it, can you
give that codes for me ? 2) Can I play all the music track and all FMV (Full
Motion Video) in Chrono Cross with that Debug Codes ? if the answer is yes, how
to do that ? thanks for your attention, i will be very happy if you can help me,
because i like all the music and all the movies in Chrono Cross ...i hope, i can
played it like in FF8 debug room ^_^ OK....thanks a lot for your help. ALEX."
Good questions, thank you for writing. The codes you see in this FAQ work for
ALL sharks, except 2.1 and below. If not I can get you a code porter which does
it automatically, just ask me anytime!! Yes, if you put in the quantity digits
for the FMV/scene for instance, the ones in this FAQ. It is not like the FF8
debug room.
From "Hello,
I was reading through your Programmers Door FAQ for Chrono Cross (which was
very, very well written) and I came across something interesting. When you
talked about different paths in the game for Serge and "finding himself", you
mentioned that you can use Harle to get the Black Relic, thus skipping a whole
story section. This confused me because I didn't know it was possible to skip
the black dragon fight. I've read through your FAQ for the game and haven't come
up with a solution. I know that you probably get a lot of e-mails but if you
could try and clear this up for me I would really appreciate it. Thanks for your
Wow great question!! First of all the requirements are you have to have a party
of all Demi Humans. You must not have visited Marbule in Another world before
hand, and you must be ready to visit the dragons. As long as Harle is in the
lead of the party, and the other characters are demi humans, and you did NOT go
to marbule before hand which is the most common mistake especially when getting
trap elements the demi humans will welcome you with open arms. They will not
turn you away and you can walk all around Marbule peacefully. When you go to the
cave of the Black Dragon, Harle will have a chat with the others, after which
Harle will say she will talk to the dragon. She talks to it while it's sleeping,
and calmly picks up the Black Relic. You can do this before beating all the
other dragons or after, however what makes the difference is whether you went to
Marbule before hand or not. It HAS to be done on the first visit to Another
