Key points

Based on the International Zodiac Job System version of Final Fantasy XII, which overhauled the original game's character-development system and added numerous quality-of-life improvements.
Features support for 60 FPS gameplay, 21:9 aspect ratios, and multiple-monitor setups.
Exclusive to the PC version are boosters which maximize LP and gil, as well as the ability to play both New Game Plus and Minus without having to first finish the regular game.
Full Resolution Ambient Occlusion has a noticeable performance hit on AMD graphics card compared to Nvidia's offerings.[1]

VR support[edit]

Issues fixed[edit]

Game runs at double speed[edit]

Disable VSync[3]

This issue (unrelated to the F1-F3 keys, which adjust the speed of the game and are working as intended) can be caused by having a high refresh rate monitor. Disable Vsync in game. If the game crashes when disabling Vsync, go to Documents\My Games\FINAL FANTASY XII THE ZODIAC AGE\<number>\GameSetting.ini and change VSync=On to VSync=Off

Press F1

The game has an option to run at different speeds by pressing the F1-F3 keys. Press F1 to return to default speed.
