PSX FFT Hacking /

Integrating the retranslated text would be the most time-consuming, because you can't just dump the PSP's text in - the text windows are too wide to fit cleanly much of the time. You'd have to go through all of the dialogue and rearrange the line breaks, and all that sort of fun stuff.

From there, you would decide whether or not to add dark knights, Balthier, et al to the game, and if so, who to remove from the roster in order to get them to fit. Or do some ninja ASM hacking to add additional character slots, either way. Adding the new items would at least be quick and easy.

Was the first image taken on the normal or original setting?

Original, which sadly does not always run games at the original resolution.

It's stretched both vertically and horizontally. Vertically to cover the resolution increase, horizontally to maintain the original aspect ratio, then the border expanded horizontally. It's the same effect as playing the PSX game on PSP with zoom at original aspect ratio, just with extended horizontal borders instead of black columns. In fact, the images even match up perfectly as such.

PSX, though POPS sadly resizes this image to provide proper 4:3 aspect ratio, as the original resolution should be 256x240
PSP, which forgoes dithering for the Vaseline effect of resampled zoom

Or, they could have just done like Disgaea and simply resize the boundaries rather than stretch and zoom the screen itself. It's just sloppy. I should also add that the effect lag is not a negative of remaking the title but a failure on the part of the production team. There's no reason for it to be there.

I've been working more on the PSP version lately, just for the extra party slots to toy with. If there's ever a quick and easy method for resizing the party roster on PSX via patch, then I probably wouldn't ever touch the PSP version again. I hate most of the retranslations of proper nouns (when the hell did Squeenix start this holy war against the letter 's' in favor of 'th'? It's maddening!), effects causing the game to slow to a crawl is inexcusable, and the Vaseline stretch of the picture to fit PSP's resolution I find to be absolutely hideous. I'm mostly appreciative of the retranslated dialogue, and the additional items and characters are nice to keep around, but that pretty much covers all the good things I can find to say about it.

As an aside, always take DAX's retirement claims with a grain of salt - he's 'retired' from PSP hacking half a dozen times, now.

The sound is quite a bit off for effect animations for me, and it's not just the effect that's running slow, either. Music continues to play at normal speed, but the effect's sound will stutter while the video speed is cut in half.
