Arriving tomorrow. Can someone tell me the best six classes to use if I want to pretty much play the entire game with only Basch, Balthier and Ashe in my party?

Does this game have a preload option?

I preordered but didn't see an option for it during the weekend.

I mean it says so in the OP. You doubt what it says there is true or something?

With only 3, you want Ashe as a White Mage + Time Battlemage. Basch would be your main melee DPS, so you probably want Bushi + Knight. For Balthier, that leaves Black Mage, and Monk pairs very well with black mage.

Just like in FF8, cast blind.

Great OT. I was at a very cold midnight launch for this many years ago.

With all the side content it would be way over 100 on a first playthrough. All the hunts and bosses like Yiazmat will take a while.

If you want absolute number-crunching min/maxing (and knowing you, you do), I'd look to the link posted a few post above this. God tier job comboes described there.

Yes, each character can pick any of the 12 jobs when they join, but you cannot pick a 2nd job for any character until after a certain point in the story.

Probably uncompressed assets, and there is three different versions of the OST entirely included in game, the original PS2 Synth, the PS2 OST high quality version, and the Remastered OST done specifically for this remaster by original composer Hitoshi Sakimoto. It's safe to say the soundtracks are ADPCM and not compressed either.

OP doesn't include all the enhancements for the remaster, including 2x and 4x speed, map overlays etc.

Otherwise great OT!!

I'm so excited to dive back in (I'll probably finish ME:A first), but it's definitely a bummer that there's no downsampling for 1080P.

Any chance we get that patched in later?

Lovely OT Flutter.

Picking up the game on release but won't be able to play until next Monday, but I do then have 3 days off work to play it. Ridiculously excited to get stuck in to it!

1080p FMVs certainly didn't help either.

Oh gawd! I forgot this was coming out TOMORROW! It's so weird having Diablo, Crash, Tekken and now FFXII on my PS4. Nostalgia overload.

Speaking of classes, can anyone suggest the best combinations since we can choose 2 now.

EDIT: Also cannot wait to finish this and here "Kiss Me Goodbye"!!!

What was it before? 6? It was a pretty annoying mini game, so cheers to more QOL changes.

the original game on ps2 was heavily heavily compressed, hell its why the audio had some weird sound if you paid enough attention back then.

I believe it's just 1440P for 4K displays with no changes to 1080P displays. I'd be thrilled to be proven wrong!!
