Final Fantasy IX

Never heard of that before, but that looks pretty cool. It's a shame that the image has been brightened so considerably, but the payoff of the enhanced backgrounds is clear.

Been meaning to replay the game at some point, so this would be a nice way to do so.

I saw that a while ago while they were just experimenting with it.

It's quite impressive on the whole, but the quality it comes out with for the backgrounds is quite inconsistent. They use that picture of Conde Petie on the main page because that looks really good. But then quite a few other ones (look at the black mage village scenes) just look like a standard photoshop filter's been used.

I figure give it another 5 years and the tech will probably have improved to fix that. If they can get the whole thing looking as good as that Conde Petie shot, I'd be sold. Lol even though they can't technically sell it. Square Enix should hire them to release it officially.

Gizamaluke! My first playthrough I had no Quina, no Rei's Wind, but I did have the Butterfly sword. I probably spent 15 hours grinding around that dang bell, with failed attempts at the boss every hour. I died SO MANY TIMES.

The strategy guide of course directed me to PlayOnline so many times I stopped referencing it long before Black Waltz 3.

I had burned all my money on items and sold equipment to keep doing that, so when I discovered the Synth Shop, I rightfully decided it would be faster to start over than grind up the necessary funds to fix it, lol.
I miss my first run, I knew nothing about the tent trick other than seeing my own team get hit with the bad status ailments lol. Did no chocobo hot and cold, so I had no good abilities.


Listen closely, there is meaning in my words.

I did a run awhile back where I got all possible items and treasure save Excalibur II, defeated Ozma, got Dragon Crest and Frog Drop powered up to deal 9999 damage, and get all characters their abilities.

At that point I resolved to not play FFIX for a long ass time :mon:

There are soooooo many missable items in this game. The most I think of any FF.

i never got the excalibur ii or defeated ozma (and probably a bunch of other stuff), do the boosters they added for the ports make those things easier? i think i have it on my ps4 atm so i might go and try to do that at some point
