  • Final Fantasy VII on PC - what does this have that my original discs don't? VictorySaber

    I have got my original Playstation Final Fantasy VII discs in a box at home, and for the past 5 years have been meaning to go back and play the game but of course I never get around to it (at the weekend I just finished Dragon Quest VIII - obviously I have a backlog). Having seen a few FFVII posts on here and noticing the sharper graphics I found it is available on PC: http://www.finalfantasyviipc.com/en

    what does this have that my original discs don't?

    What are the differences over the original game? As far as I can see there are 36 "achievements" (?) and a "character booster" (one-click cheat mode which I'd not be interested in). It claims that all I need is an internet connection* to play wherever I am... surely I'd need to download it? Or is it all hosted in the cloud and I could play on my mobile phone?

    *under Cloud Saves button - "Whether you’re away from home or simply using a different computer to play, enjoy FINAL FANTASY VII wherever you are. With cloud save support in FINAL FANTASY VII you can continue your game progress right where you left off, all you need is an internet connection."

  • (Whether it is worth it for you, only you can say. If you've not played it in the years you've had the discs sat at home, why would you play it now with a download version? It'd save you the hassle of having a Playstation set up, or an emulator -- but whether that's worth the price tag is something only you can decide.)

    The minimum system requirements on that site are:

    • Microsoft Windows XP/Vista/7 (32/64-bit)
    • 2GHz Processor or faster
    • 1GB RAM
    • DirectX 9-compatible graphic card

    If you have an internet connection and a suitable PC, you can download the game again and play it from where you left off by taking advantage of the cloud save storage. You will not be able to play this version on your mobile phone. The "with just an internet connection" part is strictly talking about transferring save files between computers with the Square Enix Cloud Save function.

    Finally, this version is the same as that found on Steam. If you already use Steam, then it may be preferable for you to buy it from there.

  • I was wondering if is it possible to use my original PSOne saved games (in particular, from Final Fantasy VII, VIII, IX and Tactics) on the digital games downloaded from the PlayStation Store. Obviously after transfering these save files via the PS3 Memory Card adapter.

  • I've been hunting for some PS1 game saves as my PS1 memory cards died. GameFAQs has many more saves listed for the Original PS1 save format rather than the PSV format. The PS3/PSP require PSV format to work, and I don't even know what to do with the gme files GameFAQs lists for PS1. I know I can use the Sony Memory Card adapter for physical memory cards (and I own one) but that doesn't help me here unless I can somehow copy .gme files with the adapter from my PC, then to the PS3. If I can do that, that solves the problem as well, but I don't know how/if I can do that. How can I convert

  • First, see here: (PSN - Final Fantasy Tactics) ...and here: (PSN - Final Fantasy Tactics - War of the Lions) I don't have a Sony system, but I do own an iPhone. From the App Store, I have downloaded and I am currently playing FFT-WotL. From what I can tell it's the same as the original, with a few tweaks for it to work on a touch-based device. There aren't two versions within the Apple App Store. I'm curious, what are the differences between the two PSN versions? Can someone clarify?

  • isn't that much fun playing someone you don't know, since you cannot flame or anything^^. All this (and more) made me look for a FIFA community where leagues and cups are organized. Where you can rely on opponents that really are giving everything to win the game, have a good internet connection without any latencies etc. I know that leagues can be joined within FIFA but all public leagues are just dead I'd imagine you pretty much end up with deficiencies listed above... Having all that said here comes the question: Is there a FIFA (for PC) online community which organizes leagues and cups? I

  • I'm replaying Final Fantasy VII since it's re-release for the PC. Currently my party consists of Cloud, Red XIII and Vincent. I have all their ultimate weapons and they're all currently level 63. I've noticed that Cloud and Red's strength stats are around 98 and 76 respectively, yet Vincent is at 49. As a result of this, Vincent's attack damage is pretty low when compared with Cloud and Red's (around 600 per hit, vs. 1500-2000 from the others). Is there much I can do to bring Vincent's attack up? Where can I find more power sources?

  • assassinations. I would appreciate any help. This is my first time ever playing on a PlayStation. I usually play PC games. I have enough knowledge that if I need to edit the save game file on my my computer... of anything. I'm about 50% through the game and I wanted to invest on the BAWSAQ. So I created a PlayStation network account from my phone. Then I hooked up the Internet and tried to sign in. But apparently someone had already used this account with a different login. So I created a new account on the PS3 and copied my most recent save over. Now I am getting the error message: "You did
