I've noticed that no one ticks using an emulator on this speed run game, are you not allowed to emulate this game whilst speedrunning.

It is very rare for somebody to use emulators, if isn't for practice. Especially with the pc version being so easily available.

Are you interested in running the game?


yes but im not sure my computer will run the game properly, i have a lot of trouble with my computer running certain games on steam as its only a laptop


As far as I know running the game on emulator is not any easier on the PC than running the PC port, I might be wrong though.

I don't see the GPU, but the processor seems decent. Should work. I have to say tho: Win10 and FFVIII are not the best friends.


so can i speed run it on emulator then?

If you were to do a full run on Emulator, then i would add it to the board, yes.

You should know though that Emulators have usually a low loading speed, so you will notice a time-difference.


I have the psx emulator, and also i have the steam version, but i wanna to complete the game first, i never played this game, so i have the need to play it with calmly first.

I have a minilaptop, with 2gb ram, a Intel celeron of 1.44 ghz, and a intel graphics integrated. the final fantasy 8 runs good in my minilaptop playing on a emulator

Removal of Pre-Manip for PSX

Hey everyone!

We have decided to make a change to the ruleset for the PSX leaderboard. From today, the use of pre-manipulation will be banned and cannot be used in submissions. This is to finally bring PSX in line with the rest of the platforms, which had banned pre-manipulation.
