Final Fantasy VII Forum  /  No Powersoul category?

I was wondering if there could be a No Powersoul category. I often enjoy having more fun when speedrunning is more challenging.

Most likely not, because there is not really a demand for a no tifa category. Feel free to just start Routing and speedrunning it, if it is what you enjoy doing but I recomment do not tie this to whether or not it will receive its own leaderboard since that is most likely not going to happen.

I want to run the FF7 for Sunday, but it is sure that there are parts that will kill me, I can save the game before and continue, so that the game is valid for the moderators, I will play it with psxfin.exe which is my question

and I also need to know what mode is psfon.exe is digital without disk with saved starting, and if I can die more than once

I think the newest category option that's viable are. Variations of the no materia menu%

You can submit to PSX Digital Any% NoSlots for as long as the saves you create are made during the run and not beforehand and are virtual memory card saves. (using a savepoint)
Savestates using the quicksave function are not okay.

ok then it can be saved with the original game save not with the saved from the top menu of the psxfin.exe, so I can send the run if they kill me at a point in the game and I go back and finish the game.

Yes you can do that.

There was a few runs done with no Powersoul/Tifa and it's not really more challenging, the run is even easier I'd say, but yeah, runs with a low amount of runners are usually not added except if there are good reasons for it.

Yea I saw you running it back then and I agree. Mostly the challenge in the noslots strats is the chance for a fast but maybe riskier strat using tifa. Balancing tifas hp, or getting the maximum turns out of a paralyse phase using accurate atb wait tricking in order to kill the boss fast. Now without tifa , the fast kill is off the table so back to simpler strats. Its more like everyone at full hp spamming molotovs or aqualung making it safer, simpler and slower. It would just stretch noslots fights for not much in returm I feel.
