It's so nice of you to highlight all this. The top runners get a lot of the spotlight, but then you have the guys in the background putting in a serious team effort to help everyone out at this chosen challenge. It's really lovely to see how collaborative speedrunning really is.

If you ever grinded for the 99x warp spheres in the Omega Ruins, it's pretty apparent that RNG seed is a large part of being able to pick up all the chests, even if you retry tons of times, it will only be possible if you actually save your game, reset out and load another file to completely reset the seed

What's so crazy is that this is something almost everyone I know who played this as a kid could feel but couldn't explain. The capture quests specifically. It was just kind of known that sometimes you don't get certain encounters and sometimes they happen constantly. Its really cool to see the mechanism laid out like this.

This explains so freaking much. Since this game came out I played it for at least 6-8 times on different Versions. The last Version i played which abolutely baffeled me was the HD Remaster Version on the Switch. While Monster hunting i couldn't for the life of me get some enemies to spawn. Especially in the Forgotten Cave. I did experience similar behavior in the other hd Remaster Versions. But never as obvious as in this one. I quite soon figured out, that i had a RNG issue here an tried to alter it but ultimately could'nt really get rid of this problem. Don't get me wrong ... I do know that certain enounters are really hard to get and my patience was enmormous. But this playthrough was in a different leauge. There have been several occasions where i noticed that the game didn't seem to have many RNG values compared to the original. That its only 256 ... Hell i didn't expect it to be THIS griveous ^^ Thanks for making my suspicions true with this amazing video and a huge shuoutout to the speedrunning community of this gem. On of the best FF ever made

This is why I love the speedrun community. Yes they are competing for top times but in the end everyone pools all their research, tips, and theories on how to save time and generally help each other and congratulate each other when a new time thought impossible is achieved.

It's nice when it is like that, but there is a lot of toxic butthurt that results in gatekeeping which directly impedes the collaboration you're talking about. The "speedrun community" is not just one community, and even communities for individual games can become fragmented. Some people just suck at competing in a productive way.

If you're playing on an emulator, you'll definitely notice that the enemy encounters are somewhat "scripted", because using a save state you'll discover that the next encounter is always 100% the same. Now, I've learned that this is true thanks to this video! So it's seeded then, and to top it all, it's not just one but that many?? This is mind blowing stuff.

@Avi Stryfe well that's only a feature which has been tacked on in these remasters, probably so people can't softlock themselves when coming to places where they are way too weak and can't level their party properly. You haven't had that in the original games.

I'm also fascinated and even blown off that there is alot of stuff in this game that can lead to a game changer just by how fast you go from bootup into the game f.e. I never thought a ps2 game to have like a million of very different stuff you can get or even manipulate with good knowledge. Awesome video that has been put together here

Speedrunners continue to intimidate me with the absolute depth of research they will go into to save even a single frame. Nevermind BEYOND that. And their ability to notice the tiniest inconsistency in a cheating speedrun, or little details that might have massive implications for completely different things. I have nothing but respect for all of you who take this hobby so seriously. It's truly a thing to behold.

This video really reminds me of when I spent my days watching a runner by the name of Invarse try to crack at getting the Ghost whenever he began to get off-pace by Gagazet.He tried to get the drop despite the rare possibility of happening. It's cool to see that this exists now, and that the Speedrunning Community for FFX is getting some well-deserved attention now, ha.

this is an amazing video! I love seeing all this development from the speedrun community. I wonder if any of this technology could be used for old school challenges like No Sphere Grid Shinryu or Dark Anima for example.
Rossy 8 aylar önce
Of course. You could use it to manipulate any item bribe or drop you want, as well as specific monster encounters for an area you have to run through. You'd essentially use the logic of forcing a No Encounters armor drop on a Ghost to whatever item you may be looking for. You could potentially go as far as to sitting in a basic fight before Dark Anima to cycle through the part of the RNG table that handles enemy AI decisions so that by the time you fight Dark Anima, you force her to do attacks that are most favorable to your party, which could allow you enough time to defeat her before she can use an attack that would wipe your party. :D

It took about a year of learning assembly language and reverse engineering to get to the point of knowing when a Ghost would appear. Granted now that I know that base knowledge, applying it to another game wouldn't take as long, but it was a grind, that's for sure! Having tools like Cheat Engine is a huge help so you can watch the game memory in real time to see what's happening. And if you know the type of data you're looking for, you can see what part of the game handles that data and how it handles the data. Then you can continue from there and see if there's a way to manipulate the game to have it handle that data in the way you want it to for a preferred outcome.

the POC with system clock and ram manipulation kinda reminds me of when i used to play FF8 a lot back in the day. i liked having Selphie in the party for her Rapture and The End attacks, plus i typically do a limit break only run to make it more fun for myself. one thing i noticed is when i decided to fight Omega Weapon and start using Selphie's slots is nearly every attempt i would see The End pop up shortly after activating it. i kept my save file before the fight and would reload just to do it again, and every encounter would have The End available. so now i wonder if there's something going on there with the play time, or encounter accumulation or something manipulating her slots results

My favourite thing about this is how one runner was doing a run, and other runners were like "Hey, I want to help this dude out!" instead of wishing bad on him or something because 'oh no what if he tops our times' and stuff. It's super cool to see them just work together to get everyone faster runs, instead of keeping things to themselves for records. They're rivals in a sense, but very friendly and chill ones that *want* to help each other get better, and it's just super nice to see that.

They're not really rivals. It's a literal team effort, and they're all working toward the goal of minimizing the play time.

When the failed ping happened in the Discord, I didn't even realize this was about FFX. I've been watching a tiny bit of FFX Speedruns through Cereth and CaracarnVI. And I've waited few years before watching how the world record progressed. And that is incredibely funny because at the time I was around a lot for Earthbound AC runs and with my exams. I actually watched the any% world record in the middle of my exams instead of preparing for it. He didn't achieved the sub 10 yet but it was his first time he got the peaceful item in a reasonable amount of time (Like 14th or 15th encounter) and also seeing he didn't go for trio of 9999 for bosses like Sin and just go "Bahamut with full strengh runes goes brrrr" just boogled my mind and wanted to see the history of FFX records. This video is almost that and I loved it.

I've known the RNG for this game has been really weird ever since Darkkefka did a video pointing it out several years back when the HD remasters first came out. He literally showed off the fact that he knew exactly what was going to happen and the exact damage numbers right before it all happened so it doesn't surprise me that people dove deeper into this and figure out how to abuse it for speed runs

@Akita Mkay, that makes sense. Point being, FFX HD could have had a skip. In hindsight, I should have said FFX-2 PS2, since I'm pretty sure skipping cutscenes was added. More apt comparison. Though, skipping cutscenes would also skip the code adding the progress to your completion making 100% requires no skipping... and you couldn't skip main/important cutscenes... so, y'know.

I'd basically stopped watching FFX runs after the Caracarn sub 10hr so this is super cool to see To my understanding the Fire Gem strategy fell out of favor before he started going for No Encounters, and the most modern strategy was to mostly rely on Bahamut's ridiculous scaling (off Yuna's strength) anywhere you'd otherwise be using trio of 9999. Did it make a comeback in light of the RNG manip or something?

Like you could be watching any other Speedrun, I don't get twitch becuase there is soooooo much to watch and so many people live, who do you choose. Love you ❤️🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿

I unintentionally cheesed my game with an exploit that causes Auron to do automatic max damage on his Celestial Weapon (wasn't speed running, but I'm a filthy grinder) It has a function where if he's low on HP, his damage increases. I had filled out most of his sphere grid which means his total HP was actually much higher than the default cap of 9999, but I couldn't find an item for him with an HP Limit Break stat, so his HP was stuck at 9999 and the game registered him as constantly being low on HP, resulting in his damage always being at 99999 on his Celestial Weapon. (this made every boss fight from Yunalesca onward extremely simple, some were one shot) [I did this on the remastered version on the PS3, not sure if it's the same on PS4]

Yup! Auron's celestial weapon is the only one that works backwards like that. Everyone else's celestial weapon actually does less damage the lower their HP. It works that way for all versions of FFX. :D

@Skybreaker1337 Thats mad, I couldnt even beat the Dark Magus sisters when they ambushed me :L

Then you start hunting Dark Aeons and realize you have the standard power level for them. 8 Million HP with a party that doesn't have multihits still gives me PTSD. And then comes Penance with 12 mil HP...

I mean if you grind enough to have maxed celestial weapons and >9999 hp before Yunalesca, it's gonna be pretty simple either way

I thought boneworks any% was hard, jeez. This is another level. We have a lot of RNG but this is mind-blowing.

So much detail on the people looking into this! Really brings this scene closer to people who aren’t familiar with it. It makes it much more interesting?

68 RNG values?! With one seed?! WTH, Squenix?! No wonder save scumming was so hard. lol Also interesting that the HD port broke the seed generator. There's an allegory in here about changing things you don't understand, I'm sure of it.

I think it's worth saying that the 'frames since boot of system' _would_ need replacement with something when moving to PC... but it wouldn't have been hard to preserve a decent amount of randomness with even a basic RNG call to the OS.

The video was amazing and I loved it! Just sad the the 'game breaking technique' was not something to let you skip cutscenes :(

It makes the game much better to replay! I love the cutscenes, but it gets annoying when you already watched it many times xD

Unfortunately not, but there is a no cutscene mod out there for the PC version!

I remember that it I used to go elsewhere to find certain monsters in any kind of random encounter rpg when I got the same over and over again - because I wanted to complete my ingame encyclopedia for example - I never realized how deep a mere observation can go - I was simply thinking "They got the stronger enemies deeper in the dungeon" or "This looks like a place where the fire elementals might appear". This "reverse engineering" might actually also apply to other rpgs hunting for similiar important loot.

FFX is one of my favorite games of all-time, and there are people out there that I can't compare to when it comes to the love for this game. 😝 Not to nitpick, but the thumbnail should be .38%.
