This is my first post, but I've long been a fan of the work done at these forums; FFT's among my favorite all-time games and I love having new ways to play it. It seems like most modding action happens on the PSX version of the game, which makes sense, but the PSX version's main downfall for modern gameplay is the lack of non-stretched widescreen support. If I recall correctly there's a patch for WotL to make the 16:9 look better than it did originally (alongside the slowdown fix).Anyways, I was hunting around for patches and found out that just a few weeks ago, someone seems to have discovered a widescreen patch for the PSX version. You can find the original post here.This guy has a (Russian) webpage where he has some of his codes assembled into patches -- which means he also has a Final Fantasy Tactics PSX widescreen patch! (You'll need some kind of translation in place if you don't speak Russian, but the patch is the fourth download link listed and is for the US version.) Buuuut the patch is called "Nose Version", because... the guy also wanted to add noses to every single avatar in the game.Love the widescreen; hate the noses. Does anyone here have any interest and ability to use patching tools to create a PPF patch that just applies the widescreen fix? Having this, in conjunction with any of the comprehensive QoL improvement patches we have these days (Lion War, Cerabow), could produce the best possible versions of FFT available barring, say, decompilation or remaster (and I don't have a lot of faith in the quality of a remaster).I'd do this myself but dabbling with some of the tools required makes it clear I don't really have the time or baseline skillset to pull it off, so I wanted to share the info in hopes some enterprising someone takes an interest...
