My name is LucasTizma (though I go by Michael Potter in the real world).
I'm a long-time Final Fantasy Tactics fan—indeed, it's my favorite game—and the recent (if not disappointing) ports of this wonderful game in recent years resparked my love for it. I'm probably not nearly as hardcore as a lot of you guys are, but I adore this game with all my heart. I've played through it four or five times, and I listen to the OST very regularly. As far as I'm concerned, there hasn't been a true sequel to this game, so it's all I really have from the series.
Just the other day, I thought to myself, "You know what would really be amazing? If someone took the new localization of FFT from the PSP version and patched the PSX version with it." Lo and behold, I found this site! I'm super excited to start going through all the threads and hacks this community has created, and it's great to know that such a strong fan base for this game still exists.
I was deeply saddened by the pathetic job Square Enix did with the PSP and iOS ports of this game. As a matter of fact, I couldn't even finish the first battle on the PSP version. The slowdowns weren't even the worst part to me. It was the bastardized sound effects. Sadly, as I expected, SE did the same crappy job with the iOS port. Even on my iPhone 4, the speed of the game is inconsistent. Worst of all, of course, is that they used the same terrible sound effects from the PSP version, so it's a no-play for me. :-\ The music and sound effects are 100% part of the FFT experience for me, so without it being just like I remembered on the PSX version, I can't tolerate it.
Anyway, enough of my ranting! I look forward to hanging out here.
