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.

Untitled Project X[edit]

Current Untitled Project X features:
  • 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
  • Texture dumping and injection for modding (many available on NexusMods, although an account must be made to download files larger than 2 MB. An eye retexture for Tidus is here.[1][2])
  • Cutscene and dialogue skipping for Final Fantasy X
  • New optional FFX boosters: Distribute AP to inactive party members, and have permanent Sensor regardless of equipment
  • Button prompts for PlayStation/Xbox 360/Xbox One controllers, button remapping support and mappings for F1 - F5, and a soft-reset function
  • True fullscreen mode and fixes for DPI scaling
  • Intel GPU bypass and other performance fixes
  • PSN Trophy sound on achievement unlock
If severe stutter is experienced, turn the Reduce stutter option off by changing Reduce=true to Reduce=false in the main configuration file.

Game Boosters[edit]

The game comes with 5 exclusive modifiers, or "Game Boosters", to alter gameplay. Pressing F1 through F5 will activate them (by default; 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 3 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).

Paramteter 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.
