Good day, CX fanboys a--*cough cough* Oh, woah. Hold on a second, let me just clear all this dust away. Hot damn I've been really bad at mirroring things over from the main site and our social medias to deviantART. My bad.

Ugh wow it's been over a year? Oof. Sorry about that, everyone. Good news though, we have an update! Or rather, a news update. Killer wanted me to do this whole copy pasta but his intro was super cheesy and lame. I mean really, fanboys and fangirls? What is this, the early 2000s?

For those who aren't aware, we are primarily active on our Twitter (@mmbncx), and on our Facebook page. These two, in addition to the Official MegaMan Battle Network Chrono X Discord Server are the best places to get up to date information on what is going on as of late. I will definitely try my best to be better about putting smaller updates here and there as we have them, but in the meantime, if you're not already aware of those three methods of keeping up with the project, what are you doing? Go go go, follow us on Twitter, Like us on Facebook, and join our Discord.

And now we will return to Killer's lovely update.



Time for a status update on the project: MaxRock fell quite ill towards the tail end of 2018, and has taken a small break on the project, doing a minimum amount of work per day. Without going into personal details, he's had some bad physical health since birth and from time-to-time it impacts his abilities. Don't worry, he's not in any serious life-threatening condition. In fact, he feels a bit better now. He also wants you to know he absolutely hates his situation, too. But because he is feeling a bit better, I got him to implement some features that we were holding off on.

We want to give Chrono X's Internet Areas more of its own identity, so we'll probably move away from the Battle Network 3-esque semi-placeholder tiles. What do you guys think? Make sure to vote in our poll!

There's quite a bit more we did, but they're more overall optimizations introduced by our dev tools and not exactly interesting to show. Content-wise, the other parts of the game are being done in piece-meal for when Max is ready. This is big, since in the past we used to wait a while for spritework. Demo 5 brought us some new helping-hands with regards to pixel art, we've been loving that. Here's something we showed on a stream at one point:

You should know who this is if you played the demo. But while Max is working on his own thing, there's no reason why other members of the team can't do their own content and make progress.


We would like to thank everyone who reported bugs in the multiplayer on our Discord and all of the reported ones have been looked into. We still want to add more multiplayer features that didn't make it into Demo 5 (such as cut-in) and other niceties. There are logic/code changes planned to make future NetCode experiences less bug-prone and overall a better experience. That will take some time, but we're willing to go that far for quality.


We haven't forgotten about the Android version! Around the middle of 2018, we discovered that YoYoGames' SDK needed to meet Google's requirements for newer Android phones. The proprietor set out to make those changes, but as of this post, adjustments still have to be made. There isn't much we can do about that, so as of now it's on-hold until it's ready.

Add onto that Max's earlier health issues, and you see why we had to re-focus on priorities. Not to worry, the Android version is definitely NOT cancelled. We want it just as much as you guys.

Anyways, that's pretty much it. Make sure you follow us on our many other Social Media platforms to get the most up to date news, and until next time, this is Winds, signing out.

Hiya~ MaxRock's here.
I still can't believe our little V5 trailer got over 80,000 views...and it's still growing! That's the kind of attention we were hoping to get, and it makes us even more excited to deliver our game.

Our testers were very helpful in telling us of small improvements we could make, but we didn't get to make every tweak that we wanted. I'll explain our future plans in a second, but if you can't wait anymore...

=====MMBN Chrono X DEMO 5.0.0========
Download Link

If you have any questions on setting up the multiplayer, please read the enclosed guide. If you want to submit a bug, you can use our Discord or our Forum, but please try to give a lot of details about it so I can address it~

So now, when first build of Demo 5 landed, what's next? Well, let me tell you about...

Demo 5.1, it's planned features and Android Verion port of 5.0.x!

-We want to add something similar to Online Matchmaking in 5.1 to help streamline the connection process. Our biggest advantage is not needing Hamachi, and we want to fully exploit that.

-Official Chrono X tournaments is something you can expect, as well. Perhaps you'll even get chip rewards from the devs? Time will tell.

-A very vocal group has asked us to implement a "Cut-in" feature for PvP called TFC, where you can interrupt a person's dimming chip with your own. Implementing it before 5.0 would have taken quite the time,  so it was pushed into 5.1~

-Chip Balancing! We wanted to redo quite a few of our old BattleChips now that the Chip Library has been mostly ironed out. Chips like HydroPump, BackStrike, MaelStorm and Hangar will be getting very interesting changes for 5.1

-General System Tweaks,  if you notice some small things are smoother in 5.1, that's why~

-More HelpBBS quests. We need to add about 7 more, which didn't make the cut, unfortunately. They have good rewards, so maybe it'll change the meta just slightly enough to keep it interesting.

-RiffMan SP! He'll be in 5.1 after I add the Records menu I didn't have time with all the other things I had to do for 5.0 release, haha

-Quick Me.M.E.N.T.O. will be getting a nice buff! Quick Me.M.E.N.T.O. was made in the old days when we didn't have much, so it's current state isn't as powerful as we would like.

-Better drops! There are a lot more chips to get, but we'll be improving the Green Mystery Datas a little bit more in this well as some super rare items.

-Demo 5.1 will come after I have had a nice little vacation. Perhaps in Fall, perhaps in late Summer. There are a lot of little changes we wanted to do that aren't stated here, but they're minor enough that they'll add up to a much better experience~

Android Version:

Android Version will be coming after you all had some fun with Windows's 5.0.x. There are still few design decisions we need to set in stone before we release it.
Keep your eyes on our social medias in the next month or two for a date it's being released~

Well, that's all for today! Have fun playing!!~

It is with great pleasure that we bring you the trailer for MMBN Chrono X V5! We toiled away, rewrote the entire game quite a few times, but we're finally here. You can now enjoy NetBattling against your friends in a PvP environment, and enjoy the continuation of our awesome story. The Android version will come sometime after the 18th, but the PC will be on time. That release date at the end? Guaranteed.

Many, many thanks to KilikTheGemKing for editing this wonderful trailer. Check him out at: Twitter and YouTube

Killer, out!
Hello everyone, how are you all doing?

I'd like to apologize for for the lack of update on our dA page. We've been rather active on our other social media platforms and have kind of let this page fall to the side. We recently were a part of the Team BN's winter marathon and while I had wanted to advertise it here, I got so caught up with holidays and preparing for the stream that I just never got around to it. Really sorry about that, guys. Rest assured, however, that once the holidays are over we will have the segment uploaded to YouTube and once we do I'll make sure it gets posted here.

As we reach the end of 2017 and make our way into 2018 I really want to step up our presence on social media. So hopefully we will be a lot more engaging with the fans leading up to, and after, the release of Demo 5. Can't give any details on what all we'll be doing yet, but hopefully by the end of 2017 or early 2018 we'll be doing more than just semi-frequent news posts on dA and weekly polls on Facebook.

Speaking of Facebook, we recently posted a small reveal on our Facebook for those who don't follow it. It's nothing too major but I wanted to make sure you guys got to see it here as well. I personally really enjoy this bit of the cutscene, and I know Killer does as well.

You had one job!

That's all for now. If you don't already, you should follow us on Facebook and Twitter. Also, we have a Discord now as well. It is the best way to stay in touch with the devs and also get your CX news a few minutes before it gets uploaded on our social media. Feel free to come pop in and say hi, maybe stay awhile. It's pretty cool.

Until next time, everyone. Happy holidays!
Hello everyone, it's me, MaxRock.

I just recently got electricty back, and a stable net access 2 days ago.
First of all, I would like to thank everyone for all kind words and mental support I received in the past days. It means a lot to me You guys are the best!.
I would now want to take some time to correct and add few things to what other team members wrote in previous updates, as there have been some missinformations.

For those who don't know, on the night between 11th and 12th august, the region that I live in got hit by a "storm of century".
Such a thing never ever happened here before, plus the officials, despite getting a warning note about the storm, have not informed anyone...
The heavy rains and strong wind (150kph/~93mph) known as "MCS" devastated lot of forests and towns, cutting most of them, mine included, from outide world for many days (For example, in my area around 1k of electricty poles got damaged).
It's estimated that the storms brought down over 8 million cubic metres of lumber across 45k hectares of forest, which will take 2 years to clean up, and decades to recover the biosphere for which my state is famous for.

As for my property damage, I was a bit more lucky than neighbours, and rest of the town, who got trees all over their houses. My flat got mostly damaged by the strong wind, and the rainwater getting into 4 rooms at once, as there was nothing "guarding" the building from the wind's way.
The damage would be probably smaller if not the fact (which rather not everyone here knows) that I'm physically disabled and that there was no electricity already when it was happening, meaning I had only my smartphone's torchlight and 3 candles to help me. The wind pushed against the windows bending them with such a force, the rainwater got in as there were no windows at all...
Luckily the windows didn't fell into the rooms, but due to the windforce the lintels got damaged. The water that got in damaged the walls and floors a bit (the flat still smells like a wet concrete, and mold appeared around the windows and in corners).
From other things, due to the water damage, I lost all the spare PC parts in the basement (including spare monitor), fax machine, shelf the TV stands on, some of books and carpets in living room, hifi pioneer tower, guitar pedal and few other minor things. The wind also damaged my garden and things I had on my balcony (for example a pressure cooker and flower pots which flew away and their whereabouts are unknown). My main PC got water damage too, or to be more specific, its PSU did. I got it to work again, althrough it seems the usb ports now like to disconnect plugged in devices at random. Due to the power failure going for days, I also lost all of food I had in fridge, which was a bit of a problem to me. I struggle daily with an intestinal tract that can't properly absorb nutrients and food allergies, and all stores cept one were closed, so I had no choice but to eat food which was poisoning me. All this, despite not sounding that bad, left a mark and it will take some time for me to recover.

Now, I would like to to apologize for the chaotic updates on the matter done by the rest of team members. I know they tried their best with the little info that came to them, but in my opinion they made it sound confusing (for example,mentioning that my PC getting damaged was the worst damage, while obviously it's not it).
I also quite don't understand why they set the poll #226. I, of course, don't blame them for that, knowing that they had good intentions, but it made me feel uncomfortable.
I was always taught that a person is worth as much as the hard work they put to achieve goals, thus, despite being disabled, I never really liked to ask anyone for help, trying to solve all problems by myself, hahaha. So, please don't feel like you guys owe me something and have to help. Like I mentioned at the beginning, your mental support and kind words are the most important to me.

Saying that, I put Chrono X on a "semi hiatus" for a bit, where the amount of work I spend working on it will be limitted to the bare minimum, until I get things on my end sorted out.
Of course it means you guys sadly will have to wait longer for the Chrono X's 5th demo to get a public release, which, from bottom of my heart, I'm really sorry for...

At the end, for those who are interested, I leave links to news sites mentioning this event:

That's all for today, MaxRock's out~
