Yakuza 0 Forum  /  In regards to the PC version
  FroobFroob

For the launch of the PC version of Yakuza 0 real soon what i'm planning on doing is just enabling PC as a submission option to the existing leaderboard. From what we've seen from early reviews it doesn't seem like too much differs and it doesn't seem like higher FPS is causing anything that console can't do. If it turns out that there are things that pc can do which console can't (Like say skip cutscenes that console can't) then i'll seperate the leaderboard via console and pc, but for now it seems like it'll be fine to have them both together. The PC version has a FPS counter in the options by default which shouldn't need to be on, but if we have to limit future PC runs to 60fps (like for example with Nier Automata) then at that point it'll become a requirement, but for now it should be fine being off.

In regards to mods, my thought is to have them banned until we can review whether or not mods alter the gameplay in anyway, such as speeding things up illegitimately or causing other advantages that shouldn't happen. Once we know the full extent of whether stuff like model swaps or soundtrack changes don't impact gameplay then they might be allowed, but for now mods will not be allowed.

IGT will still not be brought back as I don't see it changing from how broken and easy it is to manipulate as on console. I'll do some testing and if they've actually fixed IGT to be an accurate representation then i'll enable it for PC runs. But for now, real time stands just like console and the other Yakuza games.

Text skipping actually seems to be slightly faster than on console. Gonna investigate that and see what comes of it

I should hopefully re-enable pc submissions in the next day, apologise about the delay my pc crashes whenever I play slightly intensive games on it and this is no exception. I'm doing some testing with the help of someone else in regards to the text speed, hence why it's taken so long so my apologies. I'll highly likely just be re-enabling PC as a submission tomorrow as I've got one more segment to check. Cutscenes are all the same unskippable and skippable ones as on ps4 so that isn't a problem.
