Chrono Cross: Every Window Frame And Where To Find Them

A common feature of classic RPGs that is greatly missed in many more modern games is the ability to customize your UI. This often took the form of color changes or font options, but Chrono Cross took it a step further and added multiple message window frame designs to choose from.

While you start with a few options to choose from, most of the frame designs in the game must be acquired. Some are ostentatious, some are bizarre, and some are easy on the eyes, so it's worth getting as many as you can to see which you like the most.

All Frame Locations

There are 15 frame options available in Chrono Cross, three of which you start the game with. To change frames, head to the Customize menu, and for the Window Frame option, select Custom. Press the confirm button and you'll open a selection menu with every frame you've acquired so far.

Here's how to get them all.

It is not possible to get every frame in one playthrough as two frames are mutually exclusive. You'll be able to get Guldovian Stitch if you choose to save Kid, and Tropical Paradise if you don't.

Images of each frame coming soon.
