    I wonder how many people will complain when Cecil changes, is his change classed as a spoiler? It's shown in the openning video.

    Biggs and Wedge are on the Death Star run with Luke Skywalker in Star Wars (IV I suppose, a new hope) but always I to me.

    The longer this topic goes on the further this Biggs and Wedge thing goes, if we go much deeper the fed's will close this forum down before we discover just how far this goes. Maybe just maybe it wasn't Adam and Eve, Maybe it was Bigg's and Wedge, I've said to much the walls are watching.

    so, does anybody know how auto-potion works? it was given by rosa but i have no idea how it works

    about rydia being weak, i take that back
    turns out you could set her to atk with item->rod and it does an ok strong attack without using any mana. she really helps out the party
    (how could anybody have known.. i had to read the strategy guide on gamefaqs to learn this)

    btw, there's been talk about slow frame rate during battle? i use dstt and it's smooth for me. maybe it only happens to certain cards? (r4?)

    So far I like the game for the most part (dislike mentioned below), I've never taken the oppertunity to play through FFIV before so this is entertaining and it seems good to me so far, bit high encounter rate tho but it's okay.

    As for slow downs, only seeing minor slow downs when there is several effects in play during battles, like when there is six enemies and you cast something flashy on all of them, but it depends on the animations of the enemy and your party I guess. I got a CycloDS with a 4gb KINGSTON Japan, works great.

    Now to the "bad";
    I don't mind difficult games, this one is definately harder than FF III DS to me (which is cool), but some of these bosses got horribly broken moves that sort off take the fun out of the game to fight, to me anyway.

    some parts were meant to be played with a certain strategy
    the mom bomb part: you were supposed to cast protect on everybody, set all to defend and get edward to hide. nobody should die in that round, just cast cura on everybody afterwards

    Pretty sure I didn't have Protect yet at that stage and everyone did defend with exception of Yang since he used Brace instead which is superior to it, everyone but him still died.

    Right about...here.
    I think I remembered seeing a question thread made for this but since I see more activity in this one I thought to ask here instead. Oh, and I haven't played any of the FF4 games before this. >_<

    Was Cid a playable character in the original? I thought he was just an NPC in this game.

    I think people generally forget that you can use some weapons as items and it'll cost you no mp for casting a spell. This would be quite useful for the Dark Elf part.

    Also, is the Simply and R4 the same? It works just fine on the R4 with the newest firmware. Try updating the firmware if you haven't.
