Key points

Based on the International editions of Final Fantasy X and Final Fantasy X-2, which added additional content to both games.
Players can only skip some FMV cutscenes in Final Fantasy X, no way to skip in-game cutscenes and certain FMVs. In-game cutscenes and FMVs can be skipped in Final Fantasy X-2 and Last Mission.
Compared to the PS2, some artistic changes are implemented to the characters. For example, Tidus and Yuna have reshaped faces (which some players feel reduces their facial emotional expressions), Yuna's hair is sometimes darker, Wakka has a more muscular back, etc. While some changes are harmless, some players may dislike some of these aspects. Some texture mods have been made to alleviate this, although the underlying polygonal structures can't be edited.
New to the PC version are various boosters to control the rate of enemy encounters and speed up battles, among others (see below).
This release adds an auto-save mode; all three games are now saved in a separate slot when entering another area (X, X-2) or ascending one floor (Last Mission).
Frame rate is capped at 30 FPS. No way to change without breaking the entire engine.

Essential improvements[edit]

"Untitled" Project X[edit]

An easy-to-install, auto-updating mod that adds several long-requested features, technical fixes, and general enhancements:
  • Adds in a togglable 8x speed, which can skip through cutscenes in Final Fantasy X
  • New optional FFX boosters: Distribute AP to all characters after battle, and have permanent Sensor regardless of equipment
  • Texture dumping and injection for modding
    • Many texture mods are available on NexusMods, although an account must be made to download files larger than 2 MB.
  • Button prompts for PlayStation/Xbox 360/Xbox One controllers, button remapping support, mappings for booster commands, and a soft-reset function
  • Option to unlock Seymour as a playable character in battle (you can't develop his stats at all, so this is mostly a novelty)
  • Enhanced achievements: plays the PSN or XBL unlock sound (customizable) on achievement unlock, and displays rarity statistics
  • Additional audio options, such as Japanese audio support for non-Japanese text (and vice versa), as well as the option to mute on focus lost
  • True fullscreen mode and fixes for DPI scaling
  • Intel GPU bypass and other performance fixes
If severe stutter is experienced, turn the Reduce stutter option off by changing Reduce=true to Reduce=false in the main configuration file.
To disable the on-screen display (yellow text in top-left corner), press Ctrl+ Shift+O.

VR support[edit]

Issues fixed[edit]

Unable to play while offline[edit]

The update released on March 3, 2019, introduced a Steam API bug that prevents the game from working while in offline mode of Steam. This update was later reverted on March 27 when the developers were made aware of the issue.[6]
Update the game through Steam to fix the offline issue[6]

Random crashes[edit]

Use the 4GB Patch

Flickering textures when using MSAA[edit]

Disable MFAA on the NVIDIA Control Panel and set the AA mode to "Application-controlled"

Other information[edit]

Game Boosters[edit]

The game comes with five exclusive modifiers, or "Game Boosters", to alter gameplay. By default, pressing F1 - F5 will activate them; they can also be remapped.

Key Booster Booster effect
Final Fantasy X Final Fantasy X-2 Final Fantasy X-2: Last Mission
F1 Turbo Speeds up gameplay on the field and in battle. Cycles between double speed, quadruple speed, and off. Does not affect menus or cutscenes, and disables sound effects and voices while active.
F2 Supercharge Characters gain full HP, MP, and Overdrive at the start of their turn. Characters regenerate HP and MP extremely rapidly during combat. Character gains a portion of HP and MP at the start of their turn.
F3 Encounters Toggle the rate of enemy encounters between normal, greatly increased, or none at all. Not available.
F4 Auto-battle All controllable party members automatically use the basic Attack command each round.
F5 Hide HUD Toggles the HUD on/off. May also remove some other overlay screen effects (e.g., the hazy/film filter during dream/flashback cutscenes).

Parameter Changes[edit]

The game also comes with three cheats (or "Parameter Changes") that can be accessed via Esc. Note that these cheats will be permanently activated for the save game it was used on, and may trigger some achievements (as they aren't disabled when these are turned on).

Parameter Change Effect
Get all items Gives 99 of each item in the game, excluding key items.
Unlock all skills Unlocks every skill for all characters.
Max Gil Gives you as much money as you can carry.
In Last Mission, only the Max Gil booster is available.
