    so, whats new? better still, how does it look in motion?

    is it enough to justify playing again?

    serious though, any good?

    This is more about the demand of modern OSes I believe. Whatever the case, I heard the controller support is still very sub par.

    Did some more research and decided not to buy it. No support for higher resolution, no real changes made, rubbish PC music still in it and easy achievements.

    I see, I was under the impression this was the games first outing on the PC platform due to the amount of song and dance being shown.

    Wow that sucks, expected it to be a slightly upgraded version since they programmed achievements in there, they couldve at least fixed the music.

    I hope those controls that pop up are not default and can be changed.
    Music sounds low quality maybe thats the way it was captured?

    Controls should be able to be configured in the menu like the PS1 version..

    ..and no that is what the music in the original PC version sounded like..one of the complaints.

    I hated the music in the PC version I think they upgraded from MIDI to a recent more better version at the time but MIDI was awesome for PSOne games etc I think putting the short cuts like max hp gil will take away the best experience to the game but you dont have to use I suppose then again i think if you use it you cant earn the achievements.

    If I recall correctly on the 4th disc of the Ultimate Edition in the UK there were sound bank files that if you owned a Creative Sound Blaster 16 AWE then you were able to use those files to change the music to the sound of the real instruments and it sounded absolutely stunning. Unfortunately not many people knew about this.

    With the re-release I can see this game being modded to hell and back graphically again.

    Just bumping this old thread as a heads up.

    This version of the game is now available on Steam, knew I was right to hold out.

    Yep but on the steam forum is sa tutorial how to swap them over and it is infact higher quality than th ePS1 version when yu do.

    http://steamcommunity.com/app/39140/...8001158763901/

    Problem: PSF and Midi do not entirely represent the original master
    quality of the OST.
    Solution: I have creating looping ogg from uncompressed official OST. I did this by hand. The result is music which is even higher quality than the PS1 itself. To make this pack a tradeoff between quality and size, I used Adobe Audition to create a target ogg of 192 kbit/s.
