Sweet Merciful Crap, I'm Screwed!
Apparently the Final Boss to FFIV PSX is much different thant he one in the SNES version.
Apparently there were originaly two versions of the game in Japan, Easy and Hard, the one shipped over to the Americas as Final Fantasy II was the easy version. Apparently the Chronicals version(the one that i'm playing) is the hard version, so instead of a 1 stage boss, it's a two stage boss
and what a pain it supposedly is....
Not only does it cast a 2000Hp damage per person attack spell, it's been endowed witht he most powerful spells in the game, and counter attacks each time the player attacks, not to mention it has a PHD in causing status ailments.
My only hope is to be LVL 70+ and to throw valuable weapons at it...and to use Cure 4 out the wazooo
apparently that seems to be the only stratagy that works...or the only written one I found at gameFAQS...and in the guide...
Anyone ever played the Hard Version?
Because I apparently have alot of leveling to do then...
X-Death has nothing on this guy NOTHING!
What you just found out about this? Some of the FF games were dumbed down when they bought to the states. FF4 was deemed too hard for American players, so we got the dumbed down version and it's missing an Easter Egg that the Japanese version has.
FF6 was also said to be dumbed down too. About the hard bosses, hmm, I suppose you just level up until you're strong enough to beat them.
I got 8 as my first final fantasy Game, then I got 7, then Anthologies, and i went from there as the new games were released...
Besides I didn't own an SNES
So yes I did just find out...
about mid-way thru IV I am...
But all the re-issues and remastered editions have their original content and difficulty intact along w/ extras
so what ever was taken out was put back in
so no spoony bard made an appearance in FF6
So you're a post FF6 player. About that FF4 Easter Egg, I remember it has something to do with the characters meeting the creators the game. Speaking of spoons, if you managed to get one from Yang's wife, use it. That does 9999 damage.
If you mean the Game Creator's room in the rally-ho pub

kinda like that scene in spaceballs when they insert the VHS copy of the movie, during the inital movie...
But also I figured out a way to clone weapons in-game similar to the clone item trick in FF7...
So if I clone excalubur or some other high powered weapon which would cause 99999 damage when thrown that could help with the boss battle signifigantly...
I dang never heard of no FF4 on PSX, what is this crazy?
Wait...I heard/know FF6 is related to part 4, you mean part 6 on PSX?
Final Fantasy Anthologies has Final Fantasy 5 and 6 on it, Final Fantasy Origins has a remasted Final Fantasy 1 and 2, Final Fantasy Chronicals has Final Fantasy 4 and Chrono Trigger...
usualy you can get them around 20 bucks for each collection, considering they're all greatest hits...
The only one that hasn't been released is Final Fantasy 3...
so tired now..after 3...
Now I'm in a mood to play Final Fantasy now, lol. Just that it's too late, I'd play some and tutor you for some power ups, etc. I got Part 8 and 9 though.
Over the weekend we'll see.
I only have IV,VII, and X-2 to beat
I beat all the rest...
X-2 I've been very meticuluos about considering I'm gioing for 100% on my first initial try..
sofar I've done everything and am at 47%
and I just need a Golden Chocobo for VII to aquire Knights of the round, then defeat the final boss...
I never did buy Chronicles or Origins, but I know FF7 wasn't "dumbed down" for the US. Ruby and Emerald weren't in the Japanese version.
Good luck on 100% in one try on X-2. It's not impossible, but it's a real pain. If I calculated mine correctly I finished the first time with 99.8%. Then when I went back to get the missing .2% I skipped over a bunch of crap and still couldn't get the perfect ending.
Actually the story goes that Square had to make two different versions of FFIV when the Japanese gaming community started banging their heads against the wall. Respectively, these are known as "Hard Type" and "Easy Type". When the game came out in the US as FFII, what we got was a heavilly edited version of "Easy Type". From what I heard, Easy Type was also included on the original Japanese release of Final Fantasy Anthology (which is why it got skipped in the localization process). The version on Final Fantasy Collection is the original "Hard Type" version and is uncensored. That doesn't mean the bard is no longer stingy.
I've been following the guide, when I'm at a number where it's a round number and not a decimal I save it to two files
