This mod is garbage but I've actually found FF9 to be too slow to play in twenty six teen.
Skipping those long ass battle intros / speeding ATB fill / just removing Trance would be nice.
I don't think many of you bothered to read what I wrote. As said, you can set the fps to anything you want. If you don't like it at that speed, you turn it down to something else.
It's really fast there because I was tooling with it. Here's the game at just an extra 25 fps and with a full party.
Superior version is superior.
The actual problem is that it never pauses the ATB when all the long animations are playing out, so you end up queuing up your commands behind like three other combatants at any given moment. If you actually want to make decisions accurately, you have to turn on Wait mode, then idle in a submenu constantly to let everyone else's turns play out.It's definitely slow. The game would have been better served as a pure turned-based game because then it would have been faster. The ATB actually does a huge disservice to the game. It gets worse towards the end when chimeras start countering too. Some people might be okay with it but after six games it somehow got worse. It made me appreciate what FFX did with its battle system. FFX-2 going back to ATB did it right.
3 is a really really good game. Amazing for the NES/Famicom era. It's easily in the pantheon of greats, keeping in mind what era it hails from.
I think it's too easy to judge 3 because the only version most people have played is the disappointing DS/Steam/mobile one.
There's a setting in the remaster to skip the battle intros (though it doesn't work on scripted battles, just random ones). There's also a setting to increase battle speed, though even with that maxed out they're still a little slow.
You know a game has awful gameplay when people have to fast forward through it.
Anime and movies in 60fps actually looks good, tho
The load times on FF9 are slow, and the "panning around the arena" introduction to FF9 battles are slow.
The battle itself, is not slow.
No, but I don't appreciate about 10 hours of my 50 hour playtime being spent looking at slow combat animations or sloooow camera pans.Nope. Don't agree at all. I finished the game recently only a few years back for the first time, so no nostalgia goggles or anything. Battle speed being too slow wasn't even something I thought could be a complaint until I saw this thread.
From your use of word "catastrophic" it seems like you were expecting Bayonetta combat speed from FF9.
