When does the game open up? Playing through it for the first time and I just beat Reno last night. When do you get to the world map and start really moving the plot along?
He's part of the newer generation, have some patience with him. Never showed a youngster some music to be asked about when does the song begin? (just cuz the first 30 seconds didn't have any vocals)
I'm also playing this for the first time.
OP, make sure you set the ATB system to be active during animations and increase the battle speed by like a third. It makes the game so much better holy shit.
I think this advice should work okay in FF7, but be sure not to set the speed too high. You need to remember that enemy ATB fills even during attack animations. So with max ATB speed every monster is pretty much guarenteed another turn every time any attack animation plays. Causes battles to take for fucking ever. In FF9 you're actually better off LOWERING the ATB speed to get through battles quicker because the animations in that game are fucking stupid slow.
Is it okay if I have Knights of the Round before I fought the robot in the sub base paired with Preemptive materia to kill it in one turn?
What about using Knights of the Round on Diamond Weapon and ending the fight in one turn?
Is this approved?
The first time I played FF7, I was pretty young and thought the whole game was gonna be like Midgar.
>Mfw getting to the world map for the first time
That's weird, I bought it a while ago for like one euro (although the box isn't in great shape). Didn't play it much yet, though, but I hardly ever hear anyone talking about it. It also never shows up on JRPG lists even though the quality seems to be on par with some other PS1 classics.
It's weird, though. A game like Digimon World is worth a bundle and everyone seems to know it, but Jade Cocoon went under the radar. PS1 RPGs are usually worth tons anyways, so what happened?
I should really play through it sometime.
Why do you want to know this? The magic of this game is its mystery. Even long time players are still finding things out about it today. My advice is play through it at least once without seeking out any more information, then look for secrets on following playthroughs. Honestly, you only get one shot at a first playthrough so just sit back, take in the music, the environments, the atmosphere, the story, and enjoy.
It gets really great right around the time you reach Nibelheim. There are plenty of arduous dungeons throughout the game but things just seen to get more enjoyable when you reach that town and the story picks up.
