    Cool I'll check them out. I never personally owned a playstation (my brother had one). I've had Nintendo Consoles and the first Xbox.

    One of my friends stayed at my house and left his playstation there. I don't know if it's a 2 or 3. Sounds like if it's a 2, I can't DL. Hopefully it's a 3.

    I know I'm resurrecting a thread, but I didn't want to start a new one just for a video. This is a video I made showing the materia setup I devised to be able to defeat Ruby Weapon and Emerald Weapon. It is the only one I know of that features the defeat of both Ruby Weapon and Emerald Weapon in the same video under 10 minutes without any parts cut out.

    My favorite FF is FF7, then FF8, then FF9, then FF6. I've played FF1 a little, never played 2, 3, 4, 5, 10, 11, 12, or 13.

    [YOUTUBE="ROzfvj3v2VU"]Ruby and Emerald Weapon Massacred by Cloud[/YOUTUBE]

    Description:
    Cloud single-handedly defeats both Ruby Weapon and Emerald Weapon.

    No cheats of any kind used
    No KOTR or any other summons
    No Limit Breaks used
    No 7777s
    No Final Attack
    No Revive or Restore or any other magic (including Enemy Skill)
    Hero Drink (medicine) is the only item used (no dazers)

    This is the PC version of FF7. I have a custom OpenGL graphics driver, created by Aali, to give it higher resolution and a translucent battle menu.
    Link here: Custom graphics driver for FF7/FF8 [v0.7.8b]

    I also have seifer's FF7 Retranslation Project version 001 installed. It retranslates things to make it accurate to the Japanese version.
    Link here: [WIP] FFVII Retranslation Project

    None of these mods change the gameplay or difficulty in any way. Cloud, Ruby Weapon, and Emerald Weapon are exactly the same as the PSX and unmodified PC version.

    Idec Sdawkminn,

    Very cool video. It's been quite a few years since I've fought the Ruby and Emerald Weapons, so let me see if I understand the video properly. (Also I'm used to the PS1 version.)

    First you take a lot of Hero Medicine. (Does that boost Strength?) Then it looks like you have counterattacking materia with materia that heals you when you do damage. Also you use Enemy Skill materia to do "4x cut". Is that your basic strategy?

    Also let me say that I'm impressed you could defeat the Emerald Weapon in just a few minutes using only Cloud. I would have thought you'd need three characters regardless of what strategy you used. Thanks for sharing your video.

    Hah, the Mimic/Command Counter overload tactic. So game-breaking.

    I didn't learn about that trick until about 10 years after the game was original released.

    Been a huge fan of this franchise for a long time now, but I'll wait until some more discussion starts up in this thread again before I start going into any indepth detail on that.

    Hero Medicine boosts all stats, but only for that battle. It doesn't effect the Emerald Weapon one. I do it because Ruby Weapon's defense is so high that normally my hits would do in the 1,000-2,000 range.

    I have Command Counter with Mimic a bunch and 4x Cut is a Command Materia. However, HP Absorb doesn't work with Command Materia that replaces the normal Attack command, so I have to link it with Master Command to achieve the effect.

    Having the other characters doesn't make the battle any faster, oddly enough. It actually makes it slow since Emerald Weapon will do Emerald Beam and make his eyes appear sooner and those take longer to kill.

    Yeah, but at least I don't use Limit Breaks or KOTR. That's how most people use Mimic/Command Counter.

    Otherwise the video would have been 20 minutes longer, right? Hahaha!

    Im actually playing Final Fantasy 12, my first Final Fantasy game, on my recently bought 2nd hand PS2.

    Im finding it a little dull.

    Does it get better as it goes on? I have very much enjoyed other RPGs such as Skies of Arcadia in the past.

    Depends. If you're really into playing rpgs for story, then you will find the game to be lackluster. However, if you can appreciate the gameplay elements as much/more than story elements, you'll find FF12 to be top notch. What it lacks in story it makes up for in gameplay, and the overall vibe and style of it all grows on you with time. I think it was harder for me to warm up to it at first because of the previous style of FF games I'd become accustomed to. But eventually I grew to like it so much that I played through it twice. The weapons, battle mechanics, and environments really draw you into the game. The music isn't much though.
