I've noticed in a couple of posts that people mention 'FFX - International'. What is that? Just another version? A director's uncut? Someone please explain this to me. I feel like I'm left out...

In FFX-international you can find:

- The Dark Aeons ( very dangerous foes )
- A bigger Sphere Grid
- New ability ( for example: Ribbon which can neglect all bad statues )
- New Mini-boss
- Extra Ending about Tidus that has some connection with FFX-2

In short, it's a better version of FFX that the US are stuck without...

Urk. Now I know why I can't find the Ribbon ability anywhere.

Ribbon can be costumized onto aromor, for this you will need 99 dark matters :S which is a pain in the lower side of the back.

I had 99 Dark Matter from the monster arena guy and don't remember that ability showing up. I think it's like Maestro said: that ability isn't available in the US version.

Ribbon ability isn't in the US.

International if like the Kingdom Hearts: Final Mix. japanese gamers always get the good stuff.....

How can you tell wich one you have.

can you only tell by the items

I guess that would be one way to tell. Or if you can't find the Dark Aeons anywhere, that would be another way. Also I would guess that the International Version probably says "International Version" on it, either on the disc, the CD holder it comes in, or both.

Perhaps there might be a copy on EBay? The only problem is that you also have to have a PS2 that's capable of playing it.

Maestro - you mentioned a bigger sphere grid. Are there new abilities?

Vivi FF

Yeah, I heard that Wakka gets a new ability in his SG section called Extractor or something that enables him to gain Ability Spheres... I'm sure there's a couple more...

By "Ability Spheres," do you mean spheres that allow you to activate other characters' abilities, or just the kind of Ability Spheres dropped by monsters? Because, I mean, you know, if it's just regular Ability Spheres, sure, they're a little hard to come by early in the game, but it isn't too hard to get them and once you're able to buy Ability Distillers, you can just get as many as you want.

Yes, there are new abilities in FFX-Int, for example: Full Break, releasing all four "Break" effects at once just like Auron's Banishing Blade Overdrive.....also, it has the same succes rate though just like Armor Break, Magic Break, etc while Banishing Blade "always" works, so long as the fiend has at least a 1% weakness to a Break.

Also Quick Pocket, The item-using equivalent of Quick Hit. This is quite usefull when you fight some annoying fiends like Dingos in Monster Arena ;)

hey
Other then the quick pocket they sound sweet, if i was goin to use that type of skill, you could just use haste then an item, and either way, most of the time when you use an item in FFX ,they give you another turn before the boss or monster., man i never new what aurons attack did, i just always though it looked cool, what did you say it did again, to the monster it is used on????

Just the regular ones you can get w/Ability Distillers... I think it'd be kinda easy if they were the other spheres...

Each of Auron's overdrives adds a special effect in addition to damage. (Except for the last one, I don't think it has a special effect, it just does a lot of damage.)

- Dragon Fang - Strikes all enemies . Get the button combinations correct to add a slight delay effect.
- Shooting Star - Targets a single enemy. Get the button combinations correct to eject them from battle. If the enemy is ejectproof, then it just does damage.
- Banishing Blade - Damage to one enemy, plus get the button combinations correct to add Armor Break, Power Break, Magic Break and Mental Break
- Tornado - Major damage to all enemies. Get the button combinations correct to have Auron throw his canteen into the Tornado like a grenade, for extra damage.

Note: As Maestro said, the special effects will work as long as the enemy is not completely immune to them.

Edited to add:

Hmm, sounds kinda lame. Maybe useful very early in the game, but otherwise not particularly helpful.

Heh, wow! I didn't realise there was so much but, this sounds a lot like the version I have.

First I'll say I have the original PAL version which is sold all over Europe, and that cost me 39.99(my pound sign isn't working ^^).

I have come face to face with at least 3 Dark Aeons
When I had a go at Expert mode I noticed the Sphere Grid being a lot bigger and had a totally different style


But I still have not discovered about the other things you have mentioned there Maestro. I sure hope I can ^_^
So I haven't missed anything at all have I?
