Title: Boost the Text Speed of Xenogears
Post by: Felipefpl on March 02, 2021, 01:04:43 pm
Does someone know any tool that makes the speed of the text displaying in the dialog boxes faster? Like 2x or 3x faster. It's annoying as hell having to wait the text to be written, specially when the game has A LOT of text like Xenogears.

Use the Gameshark code mentioned here (https://ffhacktics.com/smf/index.php?topic=11638.0). The 1.1 version is the one you want.

And if anyone tells you you're hurting the intended experience of the game, kindly point to them to playthroughs of the Japanese original, where the text scrolling is significantly faster and saves over ten hours of playtime on a normal playthrough.

If I was the person making the hack, I would make sure that the text speed hack (which I would make to be like the original Japanese version) would be compatible with the four hacks of the game that we have on file. Just food for thought.
