    Default Eyes on Plays Final Fantasy IV!

    We've all been anxiously waiting to play FFIV (I know I have), and with the release of the European DS game as of yesterday, now we can. Due to this late release date, Eyes on Plays will be extended into October. Probably October 10th. This might change though so keep an eye on this post.


    Anyways, this is it! Here is the obligatory stuff.

    1. When you begin the game, please post a digital camera picture or a screenshot in this thread of your game that has your party clearly visible on the screen. You MUST do this to be eligible for participation in the Challenges; we have to be able to see the names, classes, etc. of your party so we can compare it to your finishing party, and make sure you don't just stick in a memory card or load up a save state without putting in the effort.
    2. That's right, you must also post a picture from the END of the game in this thread with your same party being displayed. This way we can confirm whether or not you met the criteria for any/all of the challenges: what level your party is, what class they are, etc.
    3. You CAN play the game on an emulator, and you CAN give us a screenshot of that. Just don't go talking about where you got the rom, mmkay? ADDENDUM: Also, don't go using frameskip on us. That's just plain wrong.
    4. You can achieve as many challenges as you want, and yes, you will be able to show off your winnings in some manner once this event is over.
    I myself have not played FFIV before so the following challenges may change if another mod who knows better decides to change them. Again, keep an eye on this post.

    Gold Star Challenges

    * Obtain all call monsters
    * Obtain pink tail
    * Level 99 Dark Knight Cecil
    * Single character (Cecil)
    * For non-GBA(and I'm not sure about DS) versions:
    LV 99 Palom, Poram, Yang, Cid, Edward or Tellah

    Silver Star Challenges

    * Two front/three back always formation
    * Paladin Cecil only allowed to equip bows
    * For non-GBA(and I'm not sure about DS) versions:
    LV 99 Fusoya
    * Completion of game

    Good luck!

    Seeing as this is the only game so far that I actually own, I'm doing the PS1 version of it

    Wheee! I'ma play the GBA version. According to my other save file it took me about 11 hours to get to the moon, which is pretty close to the end of the game, so I'm not expecting this to be too time consuming. xP Those of you who can't run, though, will probably take a bit longer. :P

    Personally, I'd keep this open until the end of October, so your next one is only a month long, and it'd help with your ultra long grinding challenges. Especially as long as level 99 Dark Cecil will take.

    Hooray, I've started already. xP I've played for all of ten minutes. There's not much of a need for a picture, but here's one anyway:

    This one of my favorite games of all time. I've probably played it more times than any other game. I've played SNES, PS, and GBA versions. This time I will try the DS version, which looks awesome.

    Of the challenges I will try for the all call monsters and pink tail ones. I don't want to do any of the restrictive ones since this is my first playthrough of this version.

    I'll post a screenshot later.

    That's my preference as well. It might happen.

    I'm considering Emulating so I can get screenshots, my question is though (without asking where to get them), how safe is it typically, to look for a download an emulator?

    Found a safe emulator, although I probably won't be able to beat the game in time with my other crap, I'll try, screen shot soon ;0

    Ugh, damn it! Why do we have to start this now?! I just got Mushihimesama and I want to play that! ;-;

    Anyway, I'll be playing FFIV on SNES emulator (Japanese version, not FFII US).

    Eventually.




    Eventually. *goes back to meandering through purple waves of bullet hell*

    I'm going old school and whipping out the SNES version.

    I said in the last plays thread I'd continue naming my characters after EoFF people's so any volunteers go now before I'm forced to be creative with my naming.

    You can name Rydia after me. 'Momiji' can be used for either gender.

    I'll be getting the DS version as soon as I can and then go go go!
    (since I have already played SNES, PSX and GBA versions)
    I'm expecting a lot of Kain goodness from this game.

    As I'm not sure when I'll actually be getting the DS version, I'll just play it safe and go with the SNES version.
