RNG and Music Issues Fixed in New Final Fantasy X / X-2 HD Patch on PS4

final fantasy x x-2 hd remaster 09-04-15-1

Square Enix has released a new patch to fix some key issues of the PlayStation 4 version of Final Fantasy X | X-2 HD Remaster.

The new patch has resolved the following issues:

  • The “Random Number Generation” which ensures that monster encounters and the abilities they use happen randomly has been corrected.
  • The issue where the music would restart from the beginning after a random encounter has been corrected, so now you can hear the beautiful pieces of music that make up this soundtrack all the way through.

Whenever you next boot up Final Fantasy X | X-2 HD Remaster, the patch will be applied.

    Hell of a long time to wait for a patch to fix some serious issues. This game should have been delayed. Shame on Square Enix for releasing it in this state and also for taking so long to fix it.

    Very true. But who was really gonna cry about it. Very few people would be playing this for the first time. I’m just glad they patched it so I can pick it up at some point.

    Are the graphical improvements good on this version? How did they deal with some of the low-res textures? Those stood out on the Vita version so they’d surely stand out a lot on this version.

    On ps4 version they redone even way more re-textures in many places. It looks awesome on ps4 especially with the added Ambient occlusion

    Do the faces look awful like in the other remakes?

    Faces are same but because of the added Ambient Occlusion and shadows it’s hides the previous flat full light faces more and makes it look more natural looking… So it’s kinda a improvement.

    Really? Interesting. Did they retexture the Aeons? Those looked quite poor in the Vita/PS3 version.

    Pretty sure they did, look up some ps4 aeons on YouTube maybe

    I’m sure plenty of people would be upset about buying a game that’s broken for 4 months.

    I am of the opinion that re releases of 10 year old games should be bug free. Hell this is a re-re release from the ps3.

    How broken was i though? Not having fully randomized enemy encounters doesn’t sound that bad?

    Can you skip cutscenes in this version? Inability to do that in the ps3 version grates on me.
