FF7

Jacob Jackson

So I want to replay FF7 is it better to emulate the PSX version or pirate the newer PC version?

Is the music ok in this PC version ( in the older version even with the right soundcard it was hit or miss), is it the original PSX music or some shitty remix?

Are graphics ok or does it look horrible like the FFIX PC version?

Not really interested in mods as most of them are made by complete faggots and Advent Children cucks (character model mod for example looks like trash and just makes characters stand out like a sore thumb on those cartoonish backgrounds,).

Is the fan translation good( the fact that they let some XXXSasuke_ValentineXXX original the character faggot anywhere near the project kinda raised some red flags for me)?

Lamenting how Squeenix is gonna rape the remake is also allowed in the thread.

How hard would it be to just emulate the original Playstation version? Might as well just do that.

whats wrong with the FFIX port? did they fuck it up somehow?

If mods aren't your bag, there's almost no reason to play the PC version. The music was only fixed in an update, so if you do go for the modern PC release, mind what version you download. Graphics look kind of ass because it's all just upscaled PSX assets, but with smooth menus and text boxes.
The easiest thing to do is emulate the PSX release. No mods, no complications, just werks, upscale if you want.

Are the load times improved with emulation?

Their is nothing inherently wrong with FF9 PC port but it still never fixed the battle load times so the game is still ultimately garbage. Personally I suggest saving your money and playing it on Emulator with upscaled resolution.
The PC version of FF7 is capped at 30 FPS garbage but it can be "fix" with mods. So it depends on how invested you are in playing the game. Personally I suggest saving your money and playing it on Emulator with upscaled resolution.

If you want mods, use the PC version, update the music, update the models smooth textures out, add optional shit too.

Play the PS1 version of VII, if not on a CRT then in Mednafen. The PC version of IX is fine.

Brandon Taylor

This goes without saying, but make sure you play the english version. This is one of the few games out there where the english version is undoubtedly superior to the japanese original. And all because they redid the animation for Sephiroth's Supernova attack.

Ayden Kelly

Are you saying they changed the menus/ui to something modern or just talking about the result of upscaling? The former would look terrible. Does any version of the game actually recognize your custom configuration for controls in minigames and such? I liked to put confirm on the square button but it's a pain to have to switch back and forth.

Xavier Gonzalez

the english loc was made by the cuck who works now at treehouse, who also fucked up fire emblem fe with his sjw agenda. This is also the reason why squall in ff8 says so often 'whatever' because he was to lazy to translate it correctly.

there is a new re-translation out, but it is a hell to patch it. Keep this in mind when playing ff7.

Ethan Wright

Pretty sure 7 was translated by Jap interns and not any actual professional translators.

Nicholas Garcia

Any specific things you know of that they fucked up? It's obvious that the translation is low quality and some things the game says are outright wrong (like some of the instructions Cid gives you when defusing the bomb) but I don't know if there's anything more subtle or censored.

FF7 didn't really have noticeable load times.
update the models smooth textures out
Replacement models look like shit, and I don't know what textures you're referring to. The only texture on the field models is eyes. And no amount of filtering is going to save backgrounds exported for 640x480 display at 1920x1080 or above. Same issue applies to the copious FMVs.
Some people like graphical mods. For this particular game, I think they create an unbalanced appearance.
Note I haven't played the updated release from 2013 or whenever. The screenshots I saw looked like they at least replaced the font bitmaps for a sharper appearance, rather than upscaling. Pic related is off the Steam store page.

I find that emulation always has some kinda of issues, framerate, glitchy audio and etc,
I played it originally on a emulator and to this day I still think the battle start was actually glitchy like that
the only exception to that was mednafen, which I've tried recently and nearly had a shock to see that the game is not actually laggy like that

If you look at chan archives, you'll see that people have been typing like this since the inception of this site. The thing is that text looks cluttered inside the input box so people choose to break it up. What might look like a paragraph ends up being a single line when posted. There are all sorts of ways to find reddit, but this isn't it. Also, this sort of talk manages to derail threads that are good content because autism speaks. Please kill yourself.

Not quite but it does take place in the same world as Chrono Trigger. The "BC" for time periods that take place in the distant past actually means "Before Cloud" and Jenova is really Lavos.

I know, it's stupid. I would much prefer it if FFX is really a prequel of FFVII and Kimahri Ronso was Red XIII's forty-seventh great grandfather or something while Rosemary's baby was his forty-sixth because, in my headcanon and since we don't actually ever get to see Rosemary's baby: I like to think that the baby was a half-human half-ronso hybrid who was conceived when Kimahri had to impregnate Rosemary while masquerading as Satan because he needed his own son to fix his space ship so he could return to Spira because he was surveying mako deposits on distant planets to find a suitable location for Shinra's (that little kid with the gas mask in FFX-2) dream project, Midgar.

I'll most likely get a Sony Trinitron somewhere in the range of 21"-25" for cheap.

David Lopez
David Lopez

can't go wrong, but I'd advise you not to turn up on other brands like JVC. JVC made some really great consumer stuff and usually had the options you'd want like component, s-video, and numerous composite inputs. Silver trinitrons are easy too. I'd suggest craigslist, facebook market, and the let go app and check locally, you'll probably find some easy scores for cheap/free.

Isaiah Price

You can queue them. The complaint is justified.

Check dumpsters for people throwing out CRTs, happens all the time. They're always beside the dumpster and never inside it.

Camden Bell

There are a lot of offers for CRTs in my area that range from free-15$. Transporting it and getting a stand that will fit it and my old consoles will be the most expensive part.

I like those "Better Homes" brand 4-cube organizers from wal-mart. Manages to hold my saturn, ps2, wii, and 90lb CRT on it pretty well. It's made out of particle board but held it together pretty well. Stylish and minimalist too.

Sometimes Reddit spacing happens naturally. Maybe the formatting dictates it; if you're giving two spaces, you're separating paragraphs with different ideas or themes, or trying to give extra emphasis to something.

I know, it sucks that you've got a low-tier TV that's worse than a shitty shader at 1080p, and can't even figure out how to take pictures without shitting up your image with moire patterns.

Brandon Wood
Brandon Wood

not my photos, but it's really obvious they aren't similar.
shitting up your image with moire patterns.
not visible if you're viewing the photos at their full resolution, inherent to the arrangement of detail in the image when scaled (and pretty much all CRT) but you just aren't particularly bright and just like to talk about things with no real knowledge of them.

Carter Cook
Carter Cook

Open them in a new window and maximize them. If you can't see the moire patterns clear as day, to the left of cloud in the first image, and to the right of cloud in the second, I think you seriously need glasses. You sure are one smug kid for someone who doesn't know their ass from their elbow. Sorry you fell for the CRT meme, lad.

I see what you mean in the first photo (likely scaling artifacts), but these things are not visible in person. You should know this if you grew up with these things, but I remember people born in the late 90s have been posting here for some time.

Hey, still looks better than emulation. Sorry you're too poor or live in a box and can't afford a real setup, have to have everything consolidated to a single $400 budget "console killer" PC.
