I actually have the PS1 release of FF IX, which friends got me for a birthday, and I have yet to play it.
For those who don't know, PAL PS1 games run slower than other versions.
Can you increase the speed like you can in FF VII and VIII?
Although VIII, even with the speed maxed out was somehow really slow.

Yeah, I've watched some videos. I've become spoiled. I can't handle the slow tempo of VIII/IX anymore, lol. I don't even think a speed-up option would help, since I don't think that would make it any more fun.
It also always struck me as weird, because the ATB has become a farce in those games, as the Action element would be totally lost, since you have loads of time to think during the long animations.

Slightly off-topic, but tangentially related: I'm still not sure if I want Dragon Quest IX for exactly that reason. The game looks AMAZING, but the fight system is not really my cup of tea...

^ A little clipping there, but no biggie.

Anyone play FFXIV?
Since I've been absent I've played it quite a bit, currently learning to do the savage content, can get clears from 05s and 06s no problem. But I've been very unlucky with trying to clear 07s.... and lets not get started about Kefka.

So, uh. I'm writing a fanfic about my favorite and first FF from way back in '97 (cough: :buster_sword: ). I'm just wondering if this thread is active enough that I should post an AO3 link once it's finished? (CloTi and Zerith shipping in it because I've loved them from Day 1. I don't have a problem with Compilation of FF7 in theory, but my little fic ignores all that to zone in on Post-game.)

On that note, I highly recommend all FF7 fans check out the Beacause fan translation if you haven't. It 100% clarifies important plot points since the PSX translation sadly suffered from 1 guy looking at notes of Japanese text with no other context. (That's my understanding, at least.)

Replaying FFVII really emphasized, too, how it was going to be the same game as Xenogears before both games became their own. The main character having an identity crisis and his child self as "the coward" (Fei's words) being the voice of reason...
