Pm.arc Poor Maggie

This is the archive file for Poor Maggie. While used, it contains some unused resources.

Poor Maggie

Talk

Filename Translation Description
talk01.bck Talk 01 Talk

You normally cannot talk to Maggie while she is poor, as she only appears during cutscenes. Though it is possible to talk to her in one of the character test maps, it doesn't trigger this animation. The fact that the animation exists suggests that either she wasn't supposed to be kidnapped until sometime before the second Forsaken Fortress trip, or that you could talk to her during her fortress imprisonment.

Syan.arc Chan

This is the archive file for an unused chandelier that appeared in the Spaceworld 2001 trailer.
