Changing disc speed accounts for the emulator's bad load times to make that one specific achievement doable. Changing an emulator setting to force a game to run in slow motion to make a perfectly doable achievement easier for you is definitely cheating. People did that for Super Mario RPG's 100 super jumps and had their achievement reset.

Have done the mainline FF games (I-IX) and the snowboarding minigame cheevos were ok, completing each 90 point cheevo within 5-10 minutes. Echoing what Elbody said, did you know that you can hard turn using L1 and R1?
rlxldk 29 Aug 2022 06:07
I know about L1 and R1 turns, you are good at this mini game, I'm bad. What else to discuss here? I play on phone and maybe this is problem. I complete it in my way and I don't consider it as cheat. Shitty cheevos regards shitty methods. I don't have anything to add here

An excellent set, everything worked fine. 3 cds covered with many challenges

I just tryed an ISO with "Spirit bug fix" applyed and works fine. The ISO stills reconized by Retroachiements.
From RomHacking:
"As the name says, this patch fixes a bug with the Spirit value, which is used to reduce magic damage through the global Magic Defense parameter you can see in the Status screen. Magic Defense is supposed to be your character’s Spirit and the magic defense from the armor equipped. For some reason, the game totally ignores the latter value – returning a simple 0 – and only uses Spirit."

Would be nice Iif these RetroAchievements worked both with Duckstation or RetroArch PCSX ReArmed [core]

With Final Fantasy VII (USA) [NTSC] in .ISO or .PBP formats

The list is more for people who speedrun, exploit, or their 10th time playing looking to do uncommon things. I think you'll alienate a lot of new ones but some of these I'm glad are there, others ... not so much.
Catmadman 4 Mar 2023 00:24
We need the "date with Barret" achievement and "master of the subjects" achievement
RossWyatt 9 Mar 2023 07:50
All he did was slow the game down to make an achievement easier, it's no big deal. If this was TrueAchievements, that method would be a valuable guide that gets upvotes and everyone would be doing it.

Is there a more traditional set?
taterz 20 Jul 2023 03:08
no such thing as traditional sets, too many of the devs put in alphabet soup challenges in their sets because...just because.

add support for the spanish fan translation

I really don't see why people complain about this set. I find it pretty fun. The low level achievement sucks, but maybe just don't go for it?
Jonnicom 25 Sep 2023 21:05
I realize this is an incredbily niche question, but are there any trophies you can miss when switching discs? I am playing on Steam Deck and will have to load up the game in a separate session when switching discs becomes a thing in order to continue the game. There aren't any trophies that trigger upon disc switch or before you can save?
MauricioReis 25 Sep 2023 21:46
No, no "one session" achievements happen between disc swaps. Just remember not to sell your initial equipment for the "Ancient Steps Retraced" achievement and, of course, not to lose materials, enemy skills, side quests, and everything else.
Jonnicom 25 Sep 2023 21:48
Thanks for the quick reply! Starting my first time ever playing tonight!
Jonnicom 29 Sep 2023 04:49
I just have to share my opinion on this set as someone who is playing the game for the first time ever - this set sucks for an introduction. If you were to start your run as I did, the first trophy you have access to is a speedrun, and after that there are many that, unless you know the game, you can miss because you only get one shot (like the 20 crunches for example.)

I'm sure for people who've played this game for 20 years at this point, they find it a challenge and perhaps fun.

For a new player, this set is pretty bad at optimizing a playthrough purely to experience the game, which is what I think a set should encourage.
JackSamEss 29 Sep 2023 06:49
I'm sorry you haven't been enjoying the set for this game. Sets for "retro" games are probably going to be skewed towards people who have played the game before and not prioritizing a new player experience. Moreso since the achievement developers are likely to have a mastery of knowledge related to the game. I tend to see a mix of unmissable story related achievements and more creative achievements in rpg sets.

I'm thankful for all the time people put into making sets because it gave me new ways to experience old games from my childhood. I would recommend to any first time players to go in as blind as possible and just play the game. If you enjoyed the game and still crave more then do a second playthrough.
JSanchez97 29 Sep 2023 18:58
@JackSamEss is right.

New Players just should focus on play game at their way, and just getting fun and enjoy story.
Archievements like this, should be for those who beat the game multiple times, and want a real-deal challenge.

Myself, never beat the game, although I played it several times (The furthest I went ingame, was the bone canyon, after Gold Saucer) and of course, I'm not pretending get full set of thophies on a single run.

In a nutshell: This is not for Newbies on FF7, Just enjoy game at your pace.
Jonnicom 30 Sep 2023 06:27
Yeah I want to apologize for my use of saying it sucks. I was more wanting to express that it didn't fit the idea I had of a fun set to play for a new player. Respect to the programmers of sets. I wouldn't know wtf I was doing.
