Well, it is about time we got to something that isn't complete :skull::skull::skull::skull:. I'm starting on this right now.

cba with the challenges though.

Hey, everybody, make sure you get the super life-saving potions off the first Red guard that is easily obliterated as soon as they get off the train. It's very fortunate for us this place's initial defense are the weakest guards Shinra could find.

Edit:

Yeah, I started. I really got going on this number fast.

What emulators are you guys using? I'm on pSX, since it's actually been updated in the last seven years, but I definitely can't get it to look that pretty. Just not sure if I want to deal with ePSXe's finickiness.

No pix yet, but I'm not too far. I'll probably take a while to get through this but I'm going to try some of the challenges.

LunarWeaver
03-02-2009, 06:26 AM
I'm using the PC version.

Aerith's Knight
03-02-2009, 06:26 AM
You have to make sure to use the correct plugin for ePSXe, namely Pete's.

But yeah, doesn't look too good.

You can always just dl the PC version, I posted the patch for vista on the previous page.

Shoeberto
03-02-2009, 06:51 AM
Nah, I just decided to go with ePSXe. Just hate how when you change your config and launch the game, you have to exit the emulator fully in order to change anything again. It's pretty tedious.

Aerith's Knight
03-02-2009, 06:57 AM
Yeah, I know. I only really use it for FFIX, because I don't have the actual game of that one. :p

Goldenboko
03-02-2009, 07:26 AM
And the final verdict is... the emulated version won't work on my computer without deleting things which I'm not going to just delete at a whim. If anyone can help me with this ePSXe, that'd be nice... xD

Aerith's Knight
03-02-2009, 07:40 AM
Go to google and search Pete´s plugins. At the download site should be instructions on how to install it into ePSXe.

the rest, is how they say, obvious.

I'm getting some dll error when I try to run ePSXe. :-[ I don't know how to fix this and playing on the actual PlayStation is for chumps.

Goldenboko
03-02-2009, 06:38 PM
The dll error requires you to download something, this (http://forums.ngemu.com/epsxe-discussion/106182-zlib1-dll-not-found-fix-here.html) to be exact. The problem is, after that, when I run the game I got some "No WLM" or something like that error. And by then I was just fed up D:

Vermachtnis

For those who pay attention, you'll notice that there is no end-quote on that comment, indicating that there is more to come. ;)

I'm a little too paranoid to participate in most of these challenges, but there is one I'm willing to do.

Where be my Kishi Star?

My high score is 9144, BTW. Still haven't been able to break 10k, but maybe if I work at it more. Which I'm not willing to do due to the time constraints.

I enjoyed Tseng slapping Aerith across the face and Tifa exclaiming, "WTF!" I'm quite immature enough to find something this stupid funny for the rest of the game. Especially once I name Cait Sith STFU.


Edit: I also didn't realize Prez Shinra has a cigar in his mouth until this playthrough.

That is not a fake screenshot. It is not even that hard to obtain, as long as you are able to hit the target that is worth 4960 points: the airship propeller.

Welcome to AK plays FFVII! :)

Commence Chapter 1!

http://i239.photobucket.com/albums/ff114/pinkblurlover/1_1.jpg

You start off by being showed a cutscene where two gaurds get beat up by girls, while our hero waits until the fight's over. Some black guy shouts at me, so I might as well come out and pillage the corpses.

http://i239.photobucket.com/albums/ff114/pinkblurlover/1_2.jpg

1. Who am I talking to? The fat twitchy guy in the corner, or the one that looks like a girl?
2. Why am I even listening?

http://i239.photobucket.com/albums/ff114/pinkblurlover/1_3.jpg

Brilliant remark there, maybe ask it before you go on the secret terrorist mission next time. It explains why it takes so long to open a freaking door though.

http://i239.photobucket.com/albums/ff114/pinkblurlover/1_4.jpg

That's because I didn't give it to you. Go away, I don't like you.

http://i239.photobucket.com/albums/ff114/pinkblurlover/1_5.jpg

Instead of weather phenomenoms, I decide to give him a more down to earth name such a Richard.

..but you can call him Dick.

http://i239.photobucket.com/albums/ff114/pinkblurlover/1_6.jpg

Where are we supposed to go? There is like 3 feet of space here. Maybe if you didn't have Jessie Mcduds working on the door there, we would've been inside by now.

Strange that the most powerful organisation on the planet couldn't capture this bumbling group of idiots.

http://i239.photobucket.com/albums/ff114/pinkblurlover/1_7.jpg

I decide to name the Black dude Bert. Because a name with such a gay vibe just sounds right.

After introducing himself, he seems to start telling me how to run. Are you serious? I'm a mercenary that doesn't know how to run? I'm not really growing all that confident about Dick.

http://i239.photobucket.com/albums/ff114/pinkblurlover/1_8.jpg

So I head inside and get attacked by this crazy octopus-dog hybrid about the same size as Dick himself. I haven't watched much cop shows, but it seems like Dick is going to get ripped apart.

But no! He does 6 damage? 6!?

Obviously, Richard slices the dog in two and cell him at the local chinese take-out for some gil.

http://i239.photobucket.com/albums/ff114/pinkblurlover/1_9.jpg

So we get inside and Bert starts giving me a speech about blood and some sort of tree sex, and I hear Richard say the first decent thing of the day.

http://i239.photobucket.com/albums/ff114/pinkblurlover/1_10.jpg

Wtf? Did he just go in me? How did a 6 foot black guy just go inside me?...

...maybe we shouldn't ask that question.

Either Bert is some sort of ghost or I was really right on the money with the name.

http://i239.photobucket.com/albums/ff114/pinkblurlover/1_11.jpg

You know, I'm all for micro-management, but couldn't you just tell each other the codes?

AVALANCHE doesn't seem to be the smartest group, but what do you expect anyway from a group with such a name.

http://i239.photobucket.com/albums/ff114/pinkblurlover/1_12.jpg

Make up your mind. Is it a switch, or is it a button?

http://i239.photobucket.com/albums/ff114/pinkblurlover/1_13.jpg

Bert came out of(or in?) me talking about the time he had a colonoscopy.

http://i239.photobucket.com/albums/ff114/pinkblurlover/1_14.jpg

After a little talk he suddenly seemed to suffer from an extreme case of Parkinson's disease, while standing in provocative positions.

Don't look Richard! You'll just spur him on.

http://i239.photobucket.com/albums/ff114/pinkblurlover/1_15.jpg

Turns out Bert has a 50mm chain guy grafted into his arm. How the hell does he even control that? Mind control? Secret button?

Never mind that, where does he keep the ammo?

People bitch about the gunsword, but I find this one to be just as ridiculous.

Anyway, after beating the crap out of the little machines with a 400 pound sword, we save the game.

Next time in Chapter 2: Will Dick escape the reactor in time? Will several soldiers gang-rape him in an alley? Will he enjoy it?

Tune in next time at AK plays FFVII.

Yes, all my playthroughs are PC versions. Only way I can make screenshots.

My PlayStation version strategy guide says that the propeller is a valid target (although worth ???? points), but looking it up online, it seems that it wasn't a valid target in the PS version due to a glitch in the programming, but was added again in the PC version. Apparently it was a target for the Japanese version as well.

Some people say that it is in the PS version, but nearly impossible to hit in that version due to a change in the screen dimensions. In the PC version, as the coaster moves around, the zeppelin propeller passes at the very lower-right corner of the screen. If you move the target as far down and to the right as you can, and ultra rapid-fire the laser button, you will hit it most of the time (I sometimes miss due to not being fast enough on pressing the laser button). But the only way I have seen it hit is by that method, even though it is on screen for quite a while at other times. It is simply too small and moves too fast to target at any other time. So a shift in the screen aspect when it went from PlayStation to PC might have caused it to line up perfectly in the PC version, which is why only PC players are effectively able to hit it. Anyway, it makes getting the Parasol (which was renamed to Umbrella in the PC version) and the Flayer much easier, as due to poorer controls on the PC version, getting high numbers is very difficult.

This is funny to me because I was so incredibly bad at English when I first played this game. I though Hooligan was the name of the guy standing there. They capitalized it didn't they? :p Why can't I push hooligan? I want to push hooligan! :mad2:

If you want to get the Elemental materia from the mayor, you have to guess his password on the first go. I found this helpful bit.

Note: Method 2
--------------
This one's easy, and comes from BrutalAl. Walk to the upper right room, also
known as the 'Space Dev. Research Library', which has a blue floor and green
shelves. Check out the file on the LEFT of the MIDDLE shelf.

.-------------------------------------------------------------.
|If the file is this: |Then password is: |
|------------------------------------------|------------------|
|2 Economic report: Space Dev Program | BEST |
|1 Results of failed space mission "YA-79" | KING |
|1 Breakdown of SOLDIER members by class | BOMB |
|10 New plans for urban planning | MAKO |
'-------------------------------------------------------------'

Comes from Absolute Steve's FAQ. Now I have more materia than I did before and my E-Penis is much larger.

Cloud heard Aerith dies in this game and is surprised she's still around.

http://i68.photobucket.com/albums/i29/LunarWeaver/untitled18.jpg



Just leave already, goddamn.

http://i68.photobucket.com/albums/i29/LunarWeaver/untitled20.jpg



Everyone tells Barret to get the smurf out so much, Aerith assumes that must be his last name.

http://i68.photobucket.com/albums/i29/LunarWeaver/untitled21.jpg



After putting Aerith in her proper place, Barret asks what they should do about their current crisis.

http://i68.photobucket.com/albums/i29/LunarWeaver/untitled22.jpg



Tifa shouts the answer from up the stairs.

http://i68.photobucket.com/albums/i29/LunarWeaver/untitled23.jpg



Cloud wonders why everyone is so honest with him. He begins to think they're buttering him up to get what they want.

Finally got ePSXe working the way I wanted last night. Also ran into a weird glitch that was fixed by a more recent version - in the 7th Heaven, when I'd use the elevator, it would automatically bring me back up when I hit the bottom.

Haven't made much progress at all, suffice to say. I'm being kinda lame and just using default names. I'm going to try to get the date with Barret for sure though, I've never done it before.

Maybe just to spice up the names I'll take suggestions for what to name more non-vital characters like Yuffie and Vincent... any takers?

FFVII runs perfect for me in ePSXe 1.5.2, minus the pause that happens instead of a transition before battles. I could, probably, fix that problem with a change in my configuration settings, but I don't feel like looking it up (right now).

I searched Google for the settings I'm using now. There are a lot of forum threads on the internet that address common problems with Final Fantasy games on ePSXe.

Well, pSX emulates perfectly to a fault, including the PS1's low internal resolution. So if you're not trying to scale up pSX's rendering resolution too high, it'll look pretty great, but without any kind of post-processing (like ePSXe's plugins can do) it quickly gets pretty uggified.

also: Monda, try getting ePSXe 1.7.0. 1.5.2 is extremely outdated and might give you some hiccups. Also, some of Pete's plugins (http://www.pbernert.com/html/gpu.htm) have specific hacks to fix the battle swirl in FF games. If you have a decent graphics card I'd go with his OpenGL2 plugin.

I almost always emulate games at their original resolution, so that would explain why it's not an issue for me!

In a spoiler tag due to length :p
Step 1:
Translate all of Future Esthar's theories into a coherent chain of thoughts that can be understandable without even playing FF VIII. Then, a pattern emerges that will result in the appearance of a hidden number when carried out starting with the number of belts that Lulu from FFX wears (this trick was planned by square from the start). This hidden number is the exact time that must be of the in game clock upon scene when Aeris is killed.

Step 2:
Analyze the concepts behind Tetsuya Nomura's character designs. Once one fully understands them, they will see a number that is the hidden theme in all characters. This is the number of Hi Potions that are needed for the revival of Aeris.

Step 3:
Do not trade away the Mythril. Keep it and resist the urge to get Great Gospel.

Step 4:
Aeris must be KOed when completing the temple of the ancients, and her level must exactly match that of the high potions obtained in step 2.

Step 5:
After the party gains control of Cid, feed the fish in the City of the Ancients the Mythril. Because of the playtime at Aeris's death, the fish is actually alive and awake, so he gets out of the way. Go down and where the white materia is you will find an item called &*%^th

Step 6:
When you reobtain Cloud and Tifa, go to the sector five church, and use the &*%^th as well as your high potions on the Aeris ghost. You only have 1 shot at this or you can't ever revive her. This will trigger a boss fight with the Fate Keeper, who has seven times the HP of Penance and can only be damaged by the buster sword. When he is defeted, the &*%^th will vanish and an item called Fateth will be found.

Step 7:
Throw the fateth into the lifestream at Mideel. Aeris will rise from it at level 7 with all limit breaks as well as her true ultimate weapon, the Wisdom of time, complete with master Restore, Barrier, Life, Ultima, Knights of the Round, and full Cure materia.However, her name is also changed from Aeris to Aerith. Even if you named her something else, it will be renamed Aerith. She takes a slot of the party and never leaves again. She also glows because the lifestream is radioactive and glowing Aerith has red eyes. And longer hair. Cloud also decides to dye his hair black for the rest of the game.

Step 8:
The revival scene causes a glitch in the game, so you must then save the game, and on the same memory card as the FF save must have 7 perfect files of Spawn: The Eternal. Failure to do so will result in your Playstation exploding.

Step 9:
Enjoy Aerith. she has a max of 777 HP, 77 MP and is always stuck in your party. Also Sephiroth will cast Traitor on her at the start of the final battle, causing her to constantly heal him, as well as her being immune to all attacks. Defeating Sephiroth will result in a pin up picture of Aeris and Quina as a reward on the The End Screen. You will then be treated to the true ending of FF VII, where a chocobo lays an egg that contains a letter that states that the the Final Villain for the next Villain is none other then Gogo from FF VI. Also it is rumored that it even shows the true identity of Gogo, but this is yet to be confirmed.

After beating the crap after the first two guards, I decide to mess with the config, fast is the only way to be baby.

As long as you have one designated mage (I used Tifa because she had the weakest attack), you can just attack him from the FRONT so he doesn't counterattack, and he'll quickly run out of ammo, from there, the battle is easy. He'll always just use his rear gun and ram attack, and won't be able to turn around, basically the battle will be piss easy.

I have a question regarding this All characters to 99 (including Aerith) challenge. Does Aerith have to be 99 in the same file as all your other characters who are 99? Because, I was thinking of doing this challenge, except I didn't want to have to level 2 of my characters to 99 way early and make the game way, way too easy. So, if I beat the game and get all Characters to 99, and then make a second file in which I level Aerith to 99, would I get the gold star?

I was creeped out when Cloud and the others found the corpses and blood trails during the aftermath of Sephiroth's attack - especially because the background music was very eerie (I hope I don't have nightmares tonight).

Hours of trying!

It's good to know which targets give the most points. Be sure to shoot the cacti (there are three or four of them), the yellow/orange boulder (200 points), the bunny balloon (70 points), the boat (point value varies), the big UFO near the end of the ride (1000 points), and a light on the left side of the track right before the ride ends (200 points).

You'll have to memorize where every target is/comes on screen!

I got Beta. Yes. It took forever, power-leveling to be able to defeat the Midgar Zolom first thing, but I did it. All my characters are like level 23 with level 2 limit breaks (Cloud=Lvl 3 limit break), before even heading through the marshes. This is a good thing though, because I decided to go through with the Level 99 Aerith challenge.

Right now I am stuck with three frogs in front of me and three frogs behind me. They all used Frog Song to turn me into frogs and put me to sleep. When one hits and makes me a human again, another automatically uses Frog Song to make me a sleeping frog again. And so it goes over and over, impossible for me to do anything. This is a big bag of bull:bou::bou::bou::bou: and hooker boots.

The Wutai sidequest is a lot of fun. I'm glad that I did it during disc one; during my last playthrough I did Yuffie's sidequest during the second half of FFVII, and it felt weird to me that Yuffie was willing to steal my party's Materia after everything that happened. Horrible!

This game is depressing, though. Aerith is my favorite party member, and I prolonged disc one as much as I could (without getting bored), so I could keep her as long as possible. She's so cute. =(

At least Cait Sith has a replacement! Tifa isn't an adequate replacement for Aerith.

I'm almost finished with disc two. I plan to finish Sephiroth tomorrow!

By the way, I wasn't aware of this bug, and it cost me hours:

When you want to breed your Black Chocobo with your Wonderful Chocobo, and Choco Billy tells you to talk to the two Chocobos you want to breed, talk to your Black Chocobo first. If you talk to your Wonderful Chocobo first, you won't get a Gold Chocobo - no matter how many times you try.

My Wonderful Chocobo was closest to Choco Billy, so I always chose it first. I reset my game dozens of times, thinking that a gold offspring was just a very rare occurrence, even though both of my Chocobos were S Ranks, and I fed a Zeio Nut to them in each attempt. I was really frustrated, because the GameFAQs guide to Chocobo breeding implies that getting a gold offspring requires only a few tries, if both parents are S Ranks, so I did some searching on Google and discovered the said bug. The first time I chose my Black Chocobo first I got a Gold Chocobo. =O

I released my Wonderful Chocobo, so only special Chocobos are in my stables, and I keep four Poor Chocobos in the fenced area outside. I think they're happy!

She went back in time and became Yuna.

leader of mortals

I guess I'll just post it here...

Step 1. Get 3 gold chocobos, 1 has to be S class and 1 C class. The other doesn't matter.

Step 2. Mate the class S gold chocobo with the chocobo that doesn't matter with a carob nut. This chocobo should be a gold chocobo, but there is a small chance it will create a normal chocobo. You need the normal chocobo. This normal chocobo must be raced to A class.

Step 3. Mate this A Class chocobo(it's stats should be pretty high, so it isn't hard) with the C class Gold chocobo with a Zeio nut. It has a very low chance of becomeing a Brown chocobo. This chocobo is a special chocobo. This chocobo can dive underwater, well above the area the sub dives to.

Step 4. You must then go near the materia cave that had KotR, and if you dive underwater you will find a monster here. He is strong, but not much stronger than the enemies at the crater.

Step 5. After you kill him, he will drop a Chichobo Lure. This will allow you to catch new types of chocobos, and you can re-breed them. The only change is that all the normal yellow chocobos will now be white, and you can breed them he same way that you breed the other special chocobos, but they won't change colors(the blue, green, and black chocobos can still climb over shallow waters and mountains like normal, but they will still be white). What would be the Gold Chocobo will instead be a Red Chocobo. This chocob can dig underground. SE actually thought someone would find this out, and when no one did, they put it back into FF9 as dead peppers)

Step 6. Go to Junon, and go about the length of your chocobo away from junon(out into the ocean) and dive. You will see that the sea floor slopes up, so go down to where your default depth hits the floor, and dig. You will find Sapphire Weapon's head.

Step 7. You must then take the head to the northern crater, and when you land inside the high levels of mako will cause the head to fade away. It then starts to control the lifestream and attacks the party. You don't need maxed stats to win, but it won't be easy. It is stronger than any other boss you have faced before, but it is far from impossible. I would recommend being level 99 with final attack-Life(The weapon absorbs all elements but Earth)

Step 8. After winning, you will find a new cave. This leads to an area underneath the area south of the crater. Guess where that is... The City of the Ancients.

Step 9. After you go through the semi-long dungeon(sort of between the crater and Mt. Nibel if you take the long way), you will find a special cave under the city where aeris is laying on an alter. Apparently she fell through the ground under the lake she was dropped into, and she was found by the ancients(they are actually the people from the temple). They then put her on an alter as a way to show gratitude. You then learn more about Holy and Meteor, and how Holy will not be able to stop Meteor. Aeris then starts sinking, as she drops into the lifestream. You hear the "scream of the planet" as she bursts out, alive. After you question her and such, you learn that the lifestream entered her body and the process of life worked in reverse(when someone dies they go into the lifestream, but when the planet starts dying, it goes into a human, or some crap like that:p), and that aeris is alive again! YAY! She joins back in your party!!!

Step 10. Beat the game, everything goes normally until the end where Cloud sees Aeris's hand, it actually is Aeris. Then when you watch Meteor comes down she says that she is the only one to stop it and then the lifestream inside hr bursts out, having her body fade away with it, as the lifestream in the earth burst's out too. The rest of it is like normal.

I put it in spoiler tags to be nice...

Awesome eyes on VII at last! I was waiting for this one!

Okay I am playing this now and I am trying to complete the game just using the Enemy Skill materia (which I've done before) BUT I am also trying to run away from EVERY battle apart from the bosses and the ones where I need to learn a new skill.

I am saying the only commands allowed in fights are 'Limit & Enemy Skill' but for those who don't have an ES materia yet I am allowing them to use 'Attack, Limit & Item' commands. The only exception to the ES Materia Only challenge will be the Manipulate materia's to learn Big Guard, Whitewind etc and Chocobo Lure to learn Chocobuckle.

The problem is I don't know if it's possible. I think I will end up getting stuck on Dyne. When I get to him I will need to use Barret with an Enemy Skill materia which will just have Matra Magic, Flamethrower, Level 4 Suicide and Laser. I tried a few fights with the Midgar Zolom in hope to learn Beta, but it's just too powerful at the moment and I don't think I'll be able to get that until I've learnt Big Guard.

So I've got a level 12-15 Barret with Level 4 Suicide (which won't work on Dyne) Laser (which won't work on Dyne), Matra Magic and Flamethrower. You think it will be possible?

You can get Beta!

Use a Tranquilizer on Cloud, put him in the back row to be safe (I can't remember whether Midgar Zolom has physical attacks), and, I think, equip Elemental + Fire on his armor. He should survive Beta, but there's a chance that he'll be knocked out of battle before Beta is even used. I'm pretty sure that my characters' levels were also in the teens when they defeated Midgar Zolom.

Crimson
03-24-2009, 09:01 PM

No. :(

Lmao!


You have to beat it I think. Also what usually happens is that the Zolom kicks two of the party members out of the fight and then tries to kill the final one. Also it doesn't use Beta until it's health has been depleted by a certain amount and Beta is usually powerful enough to kill your entire party by the time you first fight it.


Use a Tranquilizer on Cloud, put him in the back row to be safe (I can't remember whether Midgar Zolom has physical attacks), and, I think, equip Elemental + Fire on his armor. He should survive Beta, but there's a chance that he'll be knocked out of battle before Beta is even used. I'm pretty sure that my characters' levels were also in the teens when they defeated Midgar Zolom.

Yeah Zolom does that nasty bite attack. I tried most of those tactics but due to my Enemy Skill Only challenge the Elemental materia is banned. I think with my low levels the only way I can manage to learn it is if I had Laser to whittle away it's HP and a Fire Ring to protect against Beta, but I can't get both of them until I've beaten Dyne I don't think. Damn you Dyne!

Linking Elemental materia to a Fire materia usually helps with Beta.

I was reading the FF7 guide, and then it asked me to rename Aeris. I did so, and was sucked into the game and given Cloud's Wolf thing, which gave me the power to make wishes. My first wish was to revive Aeris. That is how Aeris was revived. Check.

Though I didn't realise it initially, I was losing a part of myself every time I made a wish. Luckily my friend Cloud and his luckdragon, the Highwind, were looking out for me as I went on my journey. They stopped me taking over Midgar, and even helped me get back to my own world. Job done. Game completed. Everybody base level with the standard equipment. Check.

All the above is totally true.

i just finished ShinRa Mansion and i have Beta on both my current ES Materia, got it on the first right after leaving the ranch, then as soon as i got the buggy i went back and got it on my second...
you do have to kill the Zolom in order to learn the Beta Enemy Skill you can not run from battle or you lose it, it does not cast the skill untill it's HP reaches 1000... putting the ES Materia holder in the back row and giving them Fire-Elemental in their armor slots helps a lot too also whenever the Zolom gets close to 1000HP make sure the one with the ESMat keeps their HP over 660 and stays in defensive position, when it cast Beta just cast it back and the fight is over... run for shore, heal thyself... it would definately be harder in an ESMat only challenge guess you're out of luck till much later... too bad cause Beta is like an instant "I Win" command early on...

Although I didn't get to participate in this as much as I would have liked, it looks like you guys had a good time. I will be sure to make the tally of who completed what challenge.

Don't forget to check out Eyes on Plays FFVIII.

If you are willing (and a little patient) to go farther in the game, you'll get a Fire Ring, which renders Beta a moot point when it comes to the Midgar Zolom. You're going to get at least 1 character knocked out, so make sure you put Elemental-Fire in the armor of the 2nd one (I used Barret), and it also helps to have Sense (so you can see the Zolom's HP). In addition, having a couple Limit's ready to go will also aid you in this task.

If you are trying to do this prior to going through Junon, good luck. His normal attack is at least 200-300 HP off, and Beta's going to hit even the Elemental-Fire combo for around 500-600 HP (or 900-1100 on a non-protected character. And YES, you MUST kill him. If you simply die and have a person "blown off" so you don't get a Game Over, the Beta will not be there!

Or you can just come back when you are like level 50 or so and wax the snot out of him. LOL
