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.

Runners in healthy speedrunning communities tend to organize their priorities as, for example: 1. I want to be the one who breaks the minute barrier. 2. I want that minute barrier broken, period. Personal glory matters, but _community_ glory matters too, and everyone can contribute to that, even if they're not one of the top 1%.

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.
Hextator 28 gün önce
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.

@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.

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.

I'm so fascinated that there is still such a huge community looking for anything and everything to get a speedrun as fast as possible by any means neccessary. 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

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 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 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

@Gaming Dualities I'm pretty sure I've already watched it. I've watched season 1 and 2, plus the 3 ovas for tournament, and whatever you call the episode about Su Mucheng brother's past. I really like the animation but I personally prefer the Light Novel over the anime maybe for the fact that it's got all that nitty gritty details from dungeons to social interactions and it seems to do development of side characters better. But I've read all of the light novel over the course of like 3 years so the story stuck with me.

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.

I absolutely admire this community. How do they find out all of this and how to manipulate the game. Amazing!!
Rossy Aylar önce
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.

Awesome video! I had no clue you could get No Encounter gear that early in the game, always thought it was post-game only. I remember being 10 and getting my first ever piece for Auron while grinding levels in the Omega Ruins. I was super excited and went to save right away, neglecting to put it on because I wanted to continue grinding. After all, I was only 10 steps away from the save sphere, what could go wrong? Back Attack -> Great Malboro -> Game Over lol

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

I assume this (extended further knowledge of seeds) can be also used to crack the 99 Warp Spheres? Because I recall that people already observed some time after the HD release that there is more pattern to the mini-quest than on the PS2. Awesome stuff all in all!

This was just on my recommendation for like 10x so i just went ahead and watched it.... but damn, it was a quality f*cking content.

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]
Rossy Aylar önce
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

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.

@Pavees Fox Ok, explain gaming, woodworking, metalworking, chemistry, writing, music, general arts and crafts, and so on. Even just forum crawling and the sort. Are those also pointless/a mental illness to "obsess" over? What is a valid "pay off"? What's the end goal? What's "healthy thinking"? I'd *really* like to see what your response would be to all those other "pointless" non-productive activities... most of which unless you dedicate entirely, will never make you money. And often are a varying level of drain on your money at best. And at worst can harm or kill you.

None of those are productive (unless you go into a dedicated job for them, and sometimes even then not very productive unless you get lucky...) and yet plenty of people do them for fun, and very often. By typing your your comment and wasting your time on people, you're wasting your life, for example. Also assuming they dont play other games, and dont have lives. Speedrunning is *also* a hobby, if you missed that hint. "And and it took me only 1 minute to come here, write the comment and thats it, while those guys waste day after day to analyse one game like total morons just to win few seconds for a speed run that maybe only a handful of people care about." And yet again proving you missed the entire point. It does not need to be "productive", because it's fun. Just because it's not *your* fun does not mean that it's completely pointless... Otherwise you might as well drop EVERYTHING you find fun, throw out all social connections, and get back to your fucking job, and shut up and do something with your life instead. Oh, but wait, you find something meaningless fun as well... Do you play games? You do realize those points and kills and skills are completely pointless right? They'll vanish when the games themselves and any sites videos are uploaded to shut down in the years to come. You dont gain anything other than momentary satisfaction before it drops to mediocrity when you "win" or kill someone, it's pointless and nobody cares about how you killed the most players in a 5 minute stretch. Or alternatively if you have a hobby like woodcarving: Do you really think anyone gives a rat's ass how you cut a chunk of wood in a funny shape? It's a useless skill that only idiots learn because they have no actual job in their lives, and have a sugardaddy to leach off of for supplies. These sound fucking stupid right? If so, that's exactly what you're saying about speedrunning as a whole. If you somehow dont find it stupid sounding... maybe you REALLY need to visit a doctor or something, in the near future, normal Humans dont think that way. Please, tell me what IS actually productive with your life, and more importantly, what IS the actual "end goal" of being productive? And dont tell me it's to "be famous" or such, because it wont really matter for shit because you'll be *dead,* even if you succeed somehow (you wont).

@Anoahmous Sorry but, i'm gonna have to agree with Omni, you're kind of a clown. "you're obviously too stupid to realize that pathological liars are too busy manipulating people irl to bother with a TRvid comment section." Read that back to us, slowly. "pathological", what is the definition of that again? A Pathological Liar usually lies about things, even if they dont have anything to gain from lying about. What would stop them from lying on TRvid, that they arent stopped by in real life? Infact, arguably it should be the reverse. "lmao you're just a contrarian." pot calls the kettle black "I just said you should stop reading so much into stuff. I know your type and they're annoying as fuck." oh he's a type now... cool. By the way, since you're too stupid to read the implied context... "bro I'm guessing it's cause they don't want people to realize you can beat the game in under 5 hours of actual gameplay" implies that the game is short, and doesnt have enough "meat" on it's bones to be good. AKA "This game sucks lmao, they just pad it out." The person who he'd been talking to before admitted that wasnt the intended implications and they both came to a relatively civil-ish agreement, before you showed up to "save the day"? "nah dude, nerds are the "um actually" type geeks are the cool ones." so bash the guy who said "you can beat the game in under 5 hours of actual gameplay" for going "um ackshually, it's mostly padding." or are you being Contrarian just to be that way? "You're a waste of time." yet he clearly isnt.

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

Yeah the rng is probably already set for that encounter at this point in the save file. Could be infinite reasons as to why though 🤷‍♀️

@CodeguruX ffx was one of their best selling games. So explain how it can be shit! Yes I agree that game after got worse and worse over the years, but the top 3 final fantasy titles in most pll eyes are 7,8, and 10(by most pll I mean pll who been playing ff games since at least the near end of the PS1)

No. X was shit. Enix shit. The first Final Fantasy to suffer from the merger, but undoubtedly not the last. FF games are simply unplayable now. Their gameplay is not longer a battle system, it's just an action game with RPG elements. The industry since then has self-corrected by bringing turn-based RPGs back into the foreground in many indie titles, some of which even gain mainstream popularity. But the damage has been done. Once you open the door to allow jock gamers to enjoy your game, you have killed your core jrpg audience. Notice how I haven't mentioned SquareSoft yet? Because they're the biggest fucking morons ever for alienating a shit ton their audience by their little gay slap fight with Nintendo and their eventual exodus to Sony. Had they not made that asinine mistake, they wouldn't have needed to be absorbed by Enix. But making business decision on emotional reasoning is a mainstay in older Japan, and fuck them for it.

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.

I'm kinda impressed RNG seeding had been ignored for that many years. I follow Pokemon speedrunning casually, and rng seeding is an ever-present element in the game and has always been taken into account for every run. I'm not talking the merits of these amazing speedrunners and researchers down, but its a bit disappointing that previous best runs didn't take rng manipulation into consideration whereas in other games it was how the best runs were achieved

First time learning about ff speedrun. Their patience is amazing but with such randomness, and having a turn-based fighting system, I don’t understand the competitive aspect of it. The world record holder basically spends more time on the game or gets luckier

Yeah pretty much. Or at least is generally *better* at it, if less time practicing. You can have someone who's spent 10k+ hours running the game, to have this guy with barely 1k+ just burn through it with worse RNG but still get a better time, usually because of researching, routing, and execution. While i dont think it's *quite* as extensive as other games, by far Execution and routing can make up for an absurd amount of time saves.

I just started this game. I got the remastered version and I love the graphics. I'm not big on graphics usually but I'm in the first city at the very start and it's a pretty game to look at. I haven't played a Final Fantasy game since 7-8 and that was probably 20 years ago maybe? I was a teenager back then. I figured I'd play a newer Final Fantasy. I know there is the PS5 thats out but I'm on a PS3 and it's blowing my mind the way games look. I missed like 2 or 3 generations of videogames. I'm about to turn 39. I just beat Dark Souls, Metal Gear Rising, and Batman Arkham Asylum before I started Final Fantasy X.

The last console I owned was PS2 (with FFX), and I've played on PC since then. I'm not sure how long it would take me to figure out how to use modern controllers and navigate movement in modern console games. XD
