My challenge/gift to all FF8 lovers (BETA)
« on: 2009-09-29 15:15:56 »
How much time has passed since you last played FF8?
Maybe you want to play it again but... it's always the same thing... gets a little boring...

So, what could we do to make it more interesting?


I though that myself and I've been "working" for the last few days for something cool.

What if you start the game at Disc 4 instead of 1? - that's my little challenge


I've prepared a NTSC game save for PSX FF8 that has the following:
- Start at Disc 4, Edea's House
- All characters with their initial levels
- Extra Edea and Seifer enabled (or Laguna and Kiros instead, optionally)
- Same items as if you were starting a new game (I only added "Magical Lamp", since there's no way to get it on Disc 4)
- 5000Gil
- Quezacoatl/Shiva + Ifrit and Cerberus GF (you wouldn't be able to get them otherwise)
- No magic for no one
- No cards
- You are not SeeD (no salary)
- (Once you get Tonberry, you'll) Access to all Shops (needed for Rinoa/Zell limit breaks)
- GFs haven't received any AP
- Time 00:00


I used the debug room to jump over events and runned from Bosses so GFs/Chars didn't get any Exp/AP
Then I've reset the battle counters (wins/run aways/etc).

Because I jumped too much stuff this save has some "bugs" (thread title says "BETA")
- Cannot change characters in field/save mode - FIXED (Check bottom of post)
- Rinoa can't use "Angel Wing" - Easily fixed once someone finds a code for it


Use the gamesave with your favorite PS1 emulator and have fun!
Link to save - http://www.mediafire.com/?sharekey=b5989241f8ffb136d956df2962098fcbe04e75f6e8ebb871
(If you're using Linux I recommend using PCSX-Reloaded, which has support for codes)


Code that will fix the char change in field - 300781A9 000F
Just enable it, go to the world map, save and restart the emulator without codes. Done.

Code for fix the Laguna/Kiros resetting to Edea/Seifer:
80077C38 0009
30077C39 001F
80077BA0 0008
30077BA1 001E

To enable/disable Edea/Seifer or Laguna/Kiros:
80077C2C 0001 - seifer/laguna
80077CC4 0001 - edea/kiros
(change 0001 to 0000 to disable it)

Very interesting.  Would it be possible in the code to have Seifer/Edea as playable characters?


Also, theoretically can't you get the magical lamp from chocobo world?  That would make things even harder lol.

I don't think it's possible to get Magical Lamp from Chocobo World... But how will you even emulate a pocketstation in ePSXe or other emulator? (does that even exist?)

Anyway, here's the code for Edea and Seifer:

80077C2C 0001 - seifer
80077CC4 0001 - edea

I already found the fix for the character change in world map. But Rinoa still can't use Limit Breaks...

Haha - I already defeated all bosses from Ultimecia's Castle

The only GFs I don't have right now are Bahamut and Tonberry.


I'm heading to the Island close to hell...  :evil:

According to http://www.gamefaqs.com/console/psx/file/197343/4929 you can however i have never actually got it that way so i'm not sure it is possible.  I have gotten at least one Pet Nametag though.  I was thinking in terms of the pc version and it coming with chocobo world.

Maybe it's (remotely) possible with Angelo Search...
But these 2 ways of getting it would be too much difficult (more like impossible). You can always sell the item you want...  :wink:

I've just updated my save, It's a new file now and already has Edea/Seifer.
The 2nd save has Laguna & Kiros instead of Edea/Seifer.

The Rinoa's Angelo issue has been fixed (was top-priority)

Any other issue can be fixed with a code
