    ePSXe works wonderfully well. You can find the proper system bios file if you're resourceful.

    Also, you can use a built-in cheat system if you're lazy and/or want to give yourself abilities that aren't normally offered in the game, like assassin skills.

    I re-played the game with this emulator a few months ago. Was a lot of fun :bowdown:

    can you just PM a link to one of these files? I owned a PSX, I owned FF:Tactics, plus you don't need that kind of stuff to play SNES roms :hs:

    The BIOS file will be the same regardless of which emulator you decide to use... unless, of course, it comes with the program. In any case, the one I recommend is scph1001.bin ...


    It works just peachy. As for "saving" your games... you can create a memory card file on your HDD or do like I did, which was save/load the game state.

    ePSXe like the others said

    Get a ROM, a BIOS and use save states to save your game with, you can use the regular in-game saves too but save states are kick ass. F1 to save, F2 scrolls up the 5 avail. save states, F3 loads.

    I tried that, the one for Gameboy Advance?

    I got done with about 6-7 battles and haven't seen or noticed any story whatsoever...it kinda just seems like a run around and fight shit game.

    the one for DS is a little better than that, but the original Tactics has a certain charm about it that stands out, and adding anything or subtracting anything from it would destroy it as a game.

    Yea I've played through tactics about 10 times so far, I still have the original PS1 cd. :bowdown: Calculators are the shit.

    The thing about Advance (one or two) that disturbs me is that you learn skills through weapons, not be merely attaining job points. I remember in Tactics I would surround a chocobo and just keep attacking him for like 6 hours straight and get over 1000 job points. :bowdown:

    Also lancers come down immediately.. they don't hang in the air anymore for a turn or so when you use a jump skill. I also don't like all the different species in advance, I was fine with humans, thanks.
