Welcome! --Shockstorm (talk) 02:17, September 16, 2012 (UTC)

I don't know why you're adding pictures to BH's FFX walkthrough, but please stop, as it is against the rules to make significant changes to someone else's walkthrough without their permission. -- Some Color Mage ~ (Talk) 09:33, January 13, 2013 (UTC)

Hey, are you listening? You require BlueHighwind's permission before adding all those new images to his FFX walkthrough. -- Some Color Mage ~ (Talk) 09:47, January 13, 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for the great quality FFX images, but please licence them in the future.—Kaimi (999,999 CP/5 TP) 15:22, January 13, 2013 (UTC)

Understood! -- Monterossa (talk) 17:15, January 13, 2013 (UTC)

Want to learn how to categorise images? :)[edit source]

When uploading images you are supposed to categorise them. This is done the easiest by just typing them into the summary box when you are first uploading. When uploading an image is supposed to have both a license and a category/categories. When uploading screenshots you can just type in {{Screenshot|Final Fantasy X}} and it will automatically give the Screenshot license and categorise the image to Category:Final Fantasy X Screenshots category. Aside from being a screenshot the image may also belong to Final Fantasy X Character Images, Final Fantasy X Location Images, Final Fantasy X Summon Images, Final Fantasy X Battle Images... etc etc. You can see all subcategories at Category:Final Fantasy X Images. To add a category you can type [[Category:Final Fantasy X Character Images]] to the summary box when you upload.

To edit categories of images after they have been uploaded, you just go to the fileview and click edit. You can see the Categories on the right hand side of the editor in the default wiki skin (just make sure you haven't collapsed it from the little arrow). You can add or remove any categories here.

Every article and file and template also has the categories at the bottom of the page and it has an add button, but you can only add more categories here, not edit the old ones.

Don't worry about the images you have already uploaded, but in the future if you could categorise them it would be grand.Keltainentoukokuu (talk) 17:53, January 23, 2013 (UTC)

OK, Thanks for your suggestion. Monterossa (talk) 09:14, January 24, 2013 (UTC)

FFXIII-2 Weapon Images Request[edit source]

Would you be so kind of getting weapon images for Final Fantasy XIII-2? It would be a good idea to upload them over the existing PNG files also adding the others I didn't upload, also limiting the captured screenshot to the in-game menu render of a character wielding a weapon. For Noel I'd like you to capture both his sides for the both blades' colour visualisation. Unless, of course, you could extract the in-game data and get models for the weapons themselves, but that would require Xbox 360 version to my knowledge.—Kaimi (999,999 CP/5 TP) 15:18, February 13, 2013 (UTC)

Done. but not sure if I've missed some of them. Monterossa (talk) 21:33, February 13, 2013 (UTC)
We seem to missing a few Bowswords. Namely Nagaraja, Fellowship Arc and Odinbolt. ETA: We also need In Paradisum, for Noel, I just noticed. HarpieSiren (talk) 21:41,

February 13, 2013 (UTC)

Would it be possible if you could upload the ones Kaimi already has? Yours are much better in quality and size. (Sorry Kaimi but your images are a bit blurred) 12:46, February 14, 2013 (UTC)
I'll do it later. Monterossa (talk) 15:48, February 14, 2013 (UTC)
No, it's alright, Mr(s). Anon! I took them from a YouTube video as it was pretty stupid that that game was released over a year know, and we don't have the weapon images yet, even though they might be in-game renders.—Kaimi (999,999 CP/5 TP) 13:12, February 14, 2013 (UTC)

I must request that if you upload screenshots that serve no purpose but to be stuffed into a gallery and thus not important enough to serve an illustrative purpose in the main article, you probably ought not to upload it. - +DeadlySlashSword+ 21:54, February 14, 2013 (UTC)

Licensing[edit source]

Hey, Kaimi's having a bit of a whine while he's going through some FFX screenshots you uploaded, so in his place I thought I should let you know; when you're licensing a screenshot, you need to follow it up with a pipe, like so- {{Screenshot|}} and the name of the game after it. So you'd be putting {{Screenshot|Final Fantasy X}} and it automatically gets put into the appropriate category. Hope that makes sense, get back to me if you need any help, yeah? EDIT- I've just realised Kelt has already told you this. In that case, you might wanna make sure to just remember these things next time. ^_^ Tia-LewiseRydia - Young battle.png 19:59, March 24, 2013 (UTC)

Ok, I'll do it. Monterossa (talk) 20:06, March 24, 2013 (UTC)
I'd like to remind you about Tia's advice. We already have overcrowded Category:Music Media category, and now you're also overcrowding the Category:Screenshots, and for me alone it's hard work to recategorise the images and the music media files. If you're unsure how to do it, please review the history of recent file changes I made and you'll (hopefully) will understand it better.—Kaimi (999,999 CP/5 TP) 11:54, May 30, 2013 (UTC)

Final Fantasy IX[edit source]

I noticed on your userpage that you have a userbox for FFIX hatred: could you tell me what makes you dislike the game? Personally, I think this is the best FF and have some very complex characters, e.g. Garnet (<333), great maps, e.g. Bran Bal, and lots of player interaction with the game, e.g. sword fight between Zidane and Marcus, and most important of all...It hos tons of moogles, kupo!—Kaimi (999,999 CP/5 TP) 21:19, May 31, 2013 (UTC)

It's one of my least favorite FF because I don't like the setting of the game. It looks like Disney world with animal humanoids everywhere. I don't like Kingdom Hearts series for the same reason as well. I like Garnet and some theme songs but still don't like this game much. Monterossa (talk) 21:38, May 31, 2013 (UTC)
"It looks like Disney world with animal humanoids everywhere."–I am not sure what animal humanoids are to do with Disney; FFIX's people are original creations while Disney's animals and such are basically animals with mostly differing designs from the 'base' look. Well, my dislike for FFXIII-2 is something similar to your dislike for FFIX: I hate the story of FFXIII-2 even though I love the characters, even the new ones.—Kaimi (999,999 CP/5 TP) 21:56, May 31, 2013 (UTC)

FFV iOS[edit source]


FFV iOS Images[edit source]

I'd like to ask you to not overwrite pre-iOS screenshots of FFV with the iOS ones: we just don't do that. If you'll look at our screenshots for older games, we don't overwrite the old screenshots with the ones from the newer version and upload them with an appropiate tag. Just in case you don't know, use the iOS screenshots through the articles, and dump the pre-iOS ones to the Gallery section of each article. A bit off-topic question, but is the OST in the iOS port remaster, or did they carry over the old music files?—Kaimi (999,999 CP/5 TP) 15:35, June 1, 2013 (UTC)

Sorry about what I've done. I will not overwrite them anymore. The iOS version uses old tracks from SNES (or PSX) version, which I like it more than GBA tracks. Monterossa (talk) 15:47, June 1, 2013 (UTC)
That's fine, just wanted to point out how we handle remakes' images. Also, how much does SNES and GBA versions of tracks differ?—Kaimi (999,999 CP/5 TP) 15:51, June 1, 2013 (UTC)
I'm not sure but I think the GBA tracks are lower quality and they're not as good as the originals. but this is just my opinion. Monterossa (talk) 16:08, June 1, 2013 (UTC)


YOU EDIT CONFLICTED MY UNDO! xD Tia-LewiseRydia - Young battle.png 17:55, June 1, 2013 (UTC)

You made a girl mad. :P Run, run, or you'll be well done. :P —Kaimi (999,999 CP/5 TP) 18:38, June 1, 2013 (UTC)
I was undoing the vandalism to FFXIII's article and you edit conflicted me :P Tia-LewiseRydia - Young battle.png 19:13, June 1, 2013 (UTC)
but I didn't edit it, I just undo it :D Monterossa (talk) 20:44, June 1, 2013 (UTC)
It still comes up as an edit conflict :P Tia-LewiseRydia - Young battle.png 20:48, June 1, 2013 (UTC)

FFV iOS[edit source]

Hi, I was looking at the FFV iOS screenshots you uploaded, do you have them for iPAD or something really large? And do you have FFIV for iOS as well? :3 s̅̅s̅̅o̅̅r̅̅c̅̅̅̅e̅̅n̅̅i̅̅v̅̅i̅̅d̅̅ 09:14, June 4, 2013 (UTC)

Yes, I have the iOS version and playing it on iPad so the screenshots are very large (2048x1536) I have to resize them to 1280x765 before I upload them. maybe I forgot to resize some of them but I can't remember. Monterossa (talk) 14:54, June 4, 2013 (UTC)
Hmm, how do you resize them? JBed (talk) 15:00, June 4, 2013 (UTC)
Actually, could you upload a screenshot (on the wiki or elsewhere) where you don't resize the image and then save it as a PNG? I'm interested in whether the game uses anti-aliasing. JBed (talk) 15:06, June 4, 2013 (UTC)

Uncompressed FFV iOS Screenshot.

I don't think it uses anti-aliasing. The graphics are pixelated on large screen except for the texts. Monterossa (talk) 18:08, June 4, 2013 (UTC)
Ah thanks. Yeah, it just looks like it blurs when they resize it. I was hoping they sized it up with nearest-neighbour to just increase the size of pixels therefore maintaining the edges, but they don't. Oh well. JBed (talk) 18:14, June 4, 2013 (UTC)
Holy crap! ...That unresized one is HUGE... Well I was asking because this wiki needs bigger FFIV iOS character renders...s̅̅s̅̅o̅̅r̅̅c̅̅̅̅e̅̅n̅̅i̅̅v̅̅i̅̅d̅̅ 08:59, June 5, 2013 (UTC)
You want to crop those character sprites? I can take screenshots with every job for you. Monterossa (talk) 11:22, June 5, 2013 (UTC)
No...I meant FFIV. s̅̅s̅̅o̅̅r̅̅c̅̅̅̅e̅̅n̅̅i̅̅v̅̅i̅̅d̅̅ 19:05, June 5, 2013 (UTC)

For the ability and status images... I have a lot of works to do in real life at this moment so maybe I'll do it someday. Monterossa (talk) 06:59, August 14, 2013 (UTC)

I've tried to capture some ability screenshot but iOS has a little delay time while taking screenshots so it's hard to do so. maybe it's easier to capture them from Youtube videos. 07:46, October 27, 2013 (UTC)

Load Captain[edit source]

I saw the Load Captain pic you uploaded - so you have FFIV for iPAD too? Can you take shots of the character renders? s̅̅s̅̅o̅̅r̅̅c̅̅̅̅e̅̅n̅̅i̅̅v̅̅i̅̅d̅̅ 16:38, June 12, 2013 (UTC)

I'll play FFIV after I finished V. Monterossa (talk) 17:28, June 12, 2013 (UTC)
There's no rush....oh, I forgot, if you could also take shots of each and every NPC in FFIV when you can. s̅̅s̅̅o̅̅r̅̅c̅̅̅̅e̅̅n̅̅i̅̅v̅̅i̅̅d̅̅ 10:50, June 13, 2013 (UTC)

FF15[edit source]

Declaring you hate it and making a template so you can display your hatred for it and Nomura just because we haven't seen any female party members yet. Congratulations on setting a new standard for idiocy on the Wiki. Here's a plaque, a ham, and a congratulatory phone call from Magic Johnson. Drake Clawfang (talk) 11:07, June 13, 2013 (UTC)

As I scroll back to the top of your talk page, my apologies for this. I do tilt my head at your choice of likes and hates, but man, I must have been in a dick mood that day last year. Drake Clawfang (talk) 22:35, October 11, 2014 (UTC)

Caius Ballad in LR:FFXIII[edit source]

Is there any official information regarding Caius's inclusion in LR:FFXIII? I ask because I saw you adding his namr to the {{tl|LR}} template and wanted to ask before starting an unnecessary edit-warring that could cause.—Kaimi (999,999 CP/5 TP) ∙ 17:22, July 11, 2013 (UTC)

Toriyama confirmed it during the interview at Japan Expo, there's a reference url that I added to Caius article. Monterossa (talk) 17:25, July 11, 2013 (UTC)
Thank you. Interview is in French which I don't understand though and I think there might a new information or two...—Kaimi (999,999 CP/5 TP) ∙ 17:27, July 11, 2013 (UTC)

You can do it while uploading by using the Summary field. :) Type in {{Screenshot|<game>}} to the Summary field to file it away at the game's screenshots category, and any additional categories with [[category:<category here>]] to do it all in one go.

Permanently Missable[edit source]

What is your purpose for moving it? Drake Clawfang (talk) 22:40, November 1, 2013 (UTC)

Isn't it has been discussed on its talk page? the article is not only about missable items but also included missable characters, summons, etc. Monterossa (talk) 22:53, November 1, 2013 (UTC)
Yes, but the talk page also explains it is still a list. Unless you plan to expand the article, which is fine (or want to continue discussion for expanding it), it should be moved to List of Permanently Missable Content or a similar title. Drake Clawfang (talk) 23:02, November 1, 2013 (UTC)
ok, I moved it to List of Permanently Missable Contents. Monterossa (talk) 23:05, November 1, 2013 (UTC)
To nitpick over grammar, that actually is grammatically incorrect, in this context content isn't pluralized. But that side, thank you. I agree with the new title, I just wasn't sure what you had planned, an expansion, retool, etc :) Drake Clawfang (talk) 23:08, November 1, 2013 (UTC)

Hi Monterossa....

I'm really sorry for the deletion of the page "Spellblade (Final Fantasy V)".... It actually wasn't me, somebody hacked my account...

Once again, really sorry about that, and thanks.

Font in FXIV:ARR[edit source]

Hey, Monterossa. I'd like to ask if the font present in this "Quest Accepted" image is used in when initiating all Quests in FFXIV:ARR, or only in "Lightning Strikes" FATE? If only in that special FATE, then are there other similar popups using that font?—Kaimi (999,999 CP/5 TP) ∙ 10:08, November 19, 2013 (UTC)

Yeah, It has "Quest Accepted", "FATE Complete", and "Quest Complete". I captured all the screenshots and will upload them soon. Monterossa (talk) 10:31, November 19, 2013 (UTC)

Corneo[edit source]

I see you've reverted my edit. I am a native Italian speaker, and I can assure you that corneo does not mean, and has never meant even in the past, horny, as in "sexually aroused". It is an ancient form for "cornuto" (as in "horned", "with horns", "something related to horns", "horn-like"), and almost only used in scientific texts, because in everyday language cornuto has a negative meaning (cheated on by the partner). An example is "strato corneo", i.e. stratum corneum, but this has nothing to do with the FF7 character.

Monterossa is of the same nationality as you, so I wonder why you both disagree with each other... Tia-LewiseRydia - Young battle.png 12:39, November 21, 2013 (UTC)
This matter has already been discussed in the article talk (here first, then a second time by me, here and here), but nobody fixed the page. If you look here, it confirms what I'm saying. You seem to imply I'm lying, so go check for yourself the usage of the word corneo in some other web pages in Italian. Simply writing that Corneo is Italian for horny is at best misleading.
I never said anything of the sort. I'm curious as to where the disagreement comes from. Tia-LewiseRydia - Young battle.png 14:35, November 21, 2013 (UTC)
I just said "corneo means horny in Italian", didn't say that it's a slang. But if you think it's going to be a misleading then we should clearly explain it in that section. However, do you think that Square chose this word as the character name on purpose? Monterossa (talk) 14:47, November 21, 2013 (UTC)
Dunno. I think they probably did chose an Italian sounding name on purpose, but why exactly Corneo? Could be because it sounds a bit like Corleone, or maybe they checked for the Italian translation for horny, found corneo among the other things and chose it. If they chose Corneo because they wanted to hint at his sex-starved personality, well, they chose wrong because of what I explained before; unless they wanted to point at his hair, which, with a stretch of imagination can be seen as a horn. This is clearly just speculation on my part.
I'm not sure if we can put personal opinion or speculation on the article. better ask moderators. Monterossa (talk) 16:04, November 21, 2013 (UTC)
I know, I was just answering you. The point is, writing only that corneo means horny in Italian is misleading since it does mean horny, but not the kind of horny the reader that knows Don Corneo is more likely to think about, so if it's reinserted I think it's better to add a little explanation, maybe just a clarification about the correct translation without any speculations.
I've removed it until a decision can be made. Also, Mr/Mrs Anon, please sign your posts with four tildes like this- ~~~~ Tia-LewiseRydia - Young battle.png 17:50, November 21, 2013 (UTC)

Image Preference[edit source]

Please upload files in PNG format and JPGs tend to be of worse quality and, oftentimes, to see the image clearly one needs to open the file in question 'individually' (in other words: in a new page in full view). Thank you.—Kaimi (999,999 CP/5 TP) ∙ 18:08, November 21, 2013 (UTC)

OK. Monterossa (talk) 18:13, November 21, 2013 (UTC)

FFX HD Remaster English Menu Screenshots[edit source]

Where did you get those shiny English-localised menu screenshots for FFX HD Remaster?—Kaimi (999,999 CP/5 TP) ∙ 22:39, December 30, 2013 (UTC)

Hacked. There're English menu files on the Japanese version disc. It required a jailbroken PS3 to modified the game data. Monterossa (talk) 22:46, December 30, 2013 (UTC)
Ah. I actually thought that there was some sudden news and was looking for them, but to no avail. Thanks for them, though.—Kaimi (999,999 CP/5 TP) ∙ 22:51, December 30, 2013 (UTC)

Would you be able to get English names for Psychic and Festival-Goer dresspheres for FFX-2?—Kaimi (999,999 CP/5 TP) ∙ 15:06, January 1, 2014 (UTC)

OK, I just read about how to obtain those dresspheres and it's very simple. Monterossa (talk) 15:13, January 1, 2014 (UTC)
The Festival-Goer is "Festivalist" but I can't get Psychic yet. the colesium is too hard for level 3 characters. Monterossa (talk) 15:48, January 1, 2014 (UTC)

Screenshots[edit source]

Those FFX/X-2 HD screenshots you're uploading, they look amaaaaazing. Like so many of them would make great wallpapers. Superb contribution for the wiki.Keltainentoukokuu (talk) 16:11, January 3, 2014 (UTC)

Thanks :) Monterossa (talk) 21:49, January 3, 2014 (UTC)

Actually, you could upload other six characters Provoke ability from FFX HD as from what I recall each of them has his own Provoke pose. And I think spell poses could be SS'ed too, but I'm not sure if community would agree with having a bit more screenshots regarding these two things.—Kaimi (999,999 CP/5 TP) ∙ 22:01, February 4, 2014 (UTC)

FF14[edit source]

Could I bug you to do a bit of expansion on a topic regarding the game? The page for the game's Ultima Weapon incarnation implies that the primals of FF14 have Astral Flows, but currently that page only covers FF11. Could you please turn it into a parent and add FF14 info? :) Drake Clawfang (talk) 05:56, January 6, 2014 (UTC)

Lightning Saga Retro-spective Trailer Screenshots[edit source]

Thanks for those trailer screenshots, but there's no real need for 1280×720 screenshots since they are just super large pixels. I think that screenshots of 640×360 are good enough.—Kaimi (999,999 CP/5 TP) ∙ 15:56, January 29, 2014 (UTC)

OK, I'll resize them and re-upload again. Monterossa (talk) 16:02, January 29, 2014 (UTC)

Allusions template[edit source]

As much as I understand the purpose of Template:Allusions, why did you chose to make it an ordinary box as opposed to a navbox? I personally feel like navboxes would be better. However, the Translations pages have a similar navigation template, so I suppose I won't say that your template is 'wrong'. I guess the template does have good reason for existing, I just don't know why it shouldn't be a navbox.--Technobliterator 17:11, February 20, 2014 (UTC)

I think it's kinda pointless to have a navbar just for something that needs only one group of content in it and it will have just a list of game titles. Monterossa (talk) 17:18, February 20, 2014 (UTC)
Your point is valid there. Unless the navbar was expanded to include things such as the Translations. Then the navigation is expanded, looks neater, and is honestly more practical.--Technobliterator 17:25, February 20, 2014 (UTC)
You're right but you need to ask the others about merging those bars. Personally I don't see why they should be merged. Monterossa (talk) 17:28, February 20, 2014 (UTC)

Article Creation[edit source]

I'm sure I'm not the only one who think like me (a bad choice of words, sorry, can't think of better), but your "Run (Theme)" article is not really in line with the ACP. That article you created covers tracks that share the same name primarily in English and nothing really else aside of playing in dire situation like escapes and such. They don't share a central melody which is key component when creating an article.—Kaimi (999,999 CP/5 TP) ∙ 18:35, February 26, 2014 (UTC)

Licensing and Categorising[edit source]

Dude, I will seriously consider hitting you with a wet trout if you keep forgetting to license and categorise your images ;) Tia-LewiseRydia - Young battle.png 23:58, March 24, 2014 (UTC)

Oops. sorry about that :) Monterossa (talk) 07:36, March 25, 2014 (UTC)

XIV Enemy Abilities[edit source]

I was just wondering if we were ever going to have a list of the XIV enemy abilities. Apparently there's no links to one, and it's not listed in the template. Do you think it would be too big/difficult to keep updated? I mean, would it be worth making it? Someone argued against having enemy ability lists for the MMO games in this thread, but I think that's been the only discussion about our XIV coverage. I haven't played the game, and I think you're the only active editor who plays it here. So I was wondering what you thought about that.

Hopefully that makes sense. I wish I could talk to you in Italian, but I've just started studying it and I barely know anything, lol. Eventually I'd like to visit Italy and try to trace some of my ancestry back. Might take a while to get to that point though :p --Shockstorm 00:22, April 2, 2014 (UTC)

I think it's too hard to do as we only have 2-3 FF wikians playing the game. this game (and XI) has a very large database so they have many database sites for it and it seems impossible for us to cover everything. we still have many missing enemy articles (at least we should start creating articles for the bosses).
and I'm also an Italian descendant so my Italian isn't that good anyway. Monterossa (talk) 09:05, April 2, 2014 (UTC)

FFX/X-2 HD[edit source]

I've done it for Rikku's Mix (Final Fantasy X), but for now I'll upload location images from X-2 first, ability images later. Monterossa (talk) 06:52, April 10, 2014 (UTC)
eh? maybe it's a mistake. I'll re-check it again. Monterossa (talk) 07:02, April 10, 2014 (UTC)

Worst hero subpage[edit source]

If that's the case then just delete it. Monterossa (talk) 18:31, May 13, 2014 (UTC)

File:FFVI GBA Raid on Narshe.png[edit source]

Where did you find the latest image you uploaded over the old one? I don't believe it's true to the original and may have been edited as the overall appearance is much smoother than the old image despite them being of the same location, event and being of the same game version. Surely it should look a little more pixellated? Tia-LewiseRydia - Young battle.png 11:51, July 6, 2014 (UTC)

probably because of the anti-aliasing feature of the emulator. Monterossa (talk) 14:51, July 6, 2014 (UTC)
What does that mean? And which emulator do you use? Tia-LewiseRydia - Young battle.png 10:56, July 7, 2014 (UTC)
most emulators have "filter" function that make old games look better. I'm using VisualBoyAdvance but I think the other emu have this function too. Monterossa (talk) 11:00, July 7, 2014 (UTC)
I use the same one. I actually never noticed any change myself, though my laptop isn't all that great, it might be a screen issue there. Tia-LewiseRydia - Young battle.png 11:06, July 7, 2014 (UTC)
The filter is set to "off" by default so you have to enable it like this: http://i.imgur.com/Sjo8vQF.png Monterossa (talk) 11:13, July 7, 2014 (UTC)
I see. That's interesting. I wonder whether it's best to leave it off for taking screenshots, if only to maintain some consistency. Tia-LewiseRydia - Young battle.png 11:26, July 7, 2014 (UTC)

Licensing and Categorising[edit source]

License and categorise your images, please. Tia-LewiseRydia - Young battle.png 08:29, August 29, 2014 (UTC)

And this one. Tia-LewiseRydia - Young battle.png 10:49, September 13, 2014 (UTC)

FFIV PC on Steam[edit source]

So, I assume that you have FFIV on PC, right? How are characters controlled without touchscreen? Do you just mouse click on the buttons to do stuff?--Magicite-ffvi-ios.png Technobliterator TC 11:45, September 28, 2014 (UTC)

I don't think there's a mouse support. I'm playing with my controller and it works like the older versions. Monterossa (talk) 12:42, September 28, 2014 (UTC)
Oh, keyboard/controller input? Ah, okay. That should probably be mentioned on the /Version Differences.--Magicite-ffvi-ios.png Technobliterator TC 12:46, September 28, 2014 (UTC)
both keyboard and controller are supported, and the players can remap the buttons they want. Monterossa (talk) 13:04, September 28, 2014 (UTC)

FA nomination[edit source]

Due to Serah's article having stubs and incomplete tables, the nomination has been removed. That's not to say you can't put it back up, I've removed stuff before in similar situations, all it needs are the problem areas fixing up and then once that's done it can be nominated again. If you or anyone else knows how to sort it feel free :) Tia-LewiseRydia - Young battle.png 12:05, October 10, 2014 (UTC)

That's alright. thanks for letting me know. Monterossa (talk) 13:23, October 10, 2014 (UTC)

Last Mission[edit source]

Your userpage says you have the HD version of FFX/X-2. Would you be able to expand this stub section and create an appropriate enemy page, please? Drake Clawfang (talk) 22:26, October 11, 2014 (UTC)

too bad, I've never played LM yet. I quit during Ch5 of X-2 because it's too boring. hope I can continue it soon. Monterossa (talk) 05:19, October 12, 2014 (UTC)
Okay, thanks anyway. Also, I bumped the X-2 character box forum, seems no one ever noticed that really but it does warrant discussion and coverage. Drake Clawfang (talk) 17:37, October 12, 2014 (UTC)

Favor[edit source]


Dark Knight[edit source]

Where are you getting the claim that Dark Knight in XIV will be a job crystal of Marauder? For the record, I know Dark Knight is in, but I haven't seen anything anywhere about it being linked to MRD. -- Some Color Mage ~ (Talk) 05:41, October 19, 2014 (UTC)

It's not. I just got fooled by some hoax site. Monterossa (talk) 06:09, October 19, 2014 (UTC)

XIV request[edit source]

Would you mind/be capable of making an OGG file for "From the Depths", Sastasha's background theme, for the Wiki? I've been working on that page, and it's pretty good, that's one of the few things I'm missing to make it a proper page. Much obliged. Jimcloud 04:36, November 8, 2014 (UTC)

sure, File:FFXIV From the Depths.ogg. Monterossa (talk) 06:14, November 8, 2014 (UTC)

Featured Article[edit source]

Sorry, but I had already made the project page for Blitz and you voted for Warring Triad two minutes later, so your vote was removed. Of course you're always welcome to suggest an article for next month. Tia-LewiseRydia - Young battle.png 16:11, January 1, 2015 (UTC)

no problem! Monterossa (talk) 16:14, January 1, 2015 (UTC)

Type-0 Postcard[edit source]

That image you suggested for FI, where did it come from? Is it just something the director put out for New Years? Drake Clawfang (talk) 15:46, January 4, 2015 (UTC)

I think it's from Tabata himself. Monterossa (talk) 15:50, January 4, 2015 (UTC)
Okey doke, thanks. Drake Clawfang (talk) 16:03, January 4, 2015 (UTC)

File:FFXIV Before the Fall.png[edit source]

Getting a bit tired of this now. Your work is highly valued and we wouldn't have many images without you;however, you have been asked by various staff members at least five times to license and categorise images you upload, yet I nearly always find images from you here. I won't be doing the work for anyone anymore, but rather I will just outright be deleting the images if they don't have licenses or categories within a few days of me leaving a message. I'm considering this my final warning to you before a block is taken into consideration for failing to listen to staff. Tia-LewiseRydia - Young battle.png 17:59, January 8, 2015 (UTC)

I'm sorry. I shouldn't make you angry, it's not good for the baby. I'll be more careful. Monterossa (talk) 19:03, January 8, 2015 (UTC)

PCSX2[edit source]

I'm not sure about how to fix that issue but you can try FRAPS software so you can capture screenshots into a PNG (or other formats) with one button, similar to how F8 key supposed to do. Monterossa (talk) 09:58, January 16, 2015 (UTC)
and you can backup the "inis" folder in PCSX2 directory before trying to change your emu settings. so if you messed it up you can easily go back to your best settings. Monterossa (talk) 10:01, January 16, 2015 (UTC)

Jump Phonecards[edit source]

Hi! I saw the phonecards you recently upload, and I'd like to add they're not made by mangakas, they're fanarts using the mangakas styles. I don't know how to edit the info, so I'm just leaving it here. Sorry about my English, and thanks for the hard work!

do you have anymore info about these phonecards? I'd like to know if they actually have sold these phonecards in Japan? Monterossa (talk) 14:18, January 19, 2015 (UTC)
I'll try to find something else, hold on!

Enemy Intel Images[edit source]

I see it silly to put the Enemy Intel images into the table. Gallery would be a much more suitable place. Also, it wouldn't make the enemy infofox as tall as it already is.—Kaimi (999,999 CP/5 TP) ∙ 12:05, March 12, 2015 (UTC)

yeah I noticed how horrible it looks and stopped adding them. Monterossa (talk) 12:46, March 12, 2015 (UTC)

Type-0 Images[edit source]

They look great. You're like the only person on the wiki who can take screenshots of all these games, so props. Type-0 is so much darker (like, the colours) than all other games though. o_o Maybe that's intentional to go with the theme.Keltainentoukokuu (talk) 17:52, April 4, 2015 (UTC)

Thanks. but I wonder why no one else upload some screenshot? isn't it easy to take screenshots on PS4? Monterossa (talk) 17:58, April 4, 2015 (UTC)
I would take screenshots, but I'm not really familiar with how to do it.--Magicite-ffvi-ios.png Technobliterator TC 18:00, April 4, 2015 (UTC)
I tried to capture ability images in the past but I found it very boring to do (don't want to accept the task and end up cannot do it). I'll try to get Ultima though, and then focus on capturing event screenshots. I'm sorry about that. huge respect for you, Xeno, you always upload all those images that'll make me sick just by trying to work on them.
another reason is that Type-0 battle system is a real-time fast pace combat. if I try to capture stuffs during battle too much I'll be dead lol. will try to take some good pictures for summons though. Monterossa (talk) 08:20, April 20, 2015 (UTC)
I'll have to reach the endgame first and unlock those spells. people will be sad if you leave the wiki for real. :( Monterossa (talk) 08:29, April 20, 2015 (UTC)

About logos![edit source]

Hello! I saw you uploaded some high quality images from the logos. They are not official, so I don't know if it's okay to uploading them since they are technicaly fanart. Here's the artist's page:


Thanks! (I have no account, just a lurker)

If they are indeed fanart they should not be on the wiki.Keltainentoukokuu (talk) 15:16, April 14, 2015 (UTC)

Sorry for the late reply. I found those images on Google and didn't realize they're fanmade. please delete them. Monterossa (talk) 02:50, April 16, 2015 (UTC)

Nope. never thought about it. Monterossa (talk) 01:14, April 24, 2015 (UTC)

Battle infobox[edit source]

Hi! Any particular reason you widened the infobox? Some infobox images get stretched outside their original size, affecting the sharpness. Of course, I can always reupload bigger versions. --CrappyScrap (talk) 07:57, May 1, 2015 (UTC)

can we make it customizable? 250px is too small for some articles. Monterossa (talk) 08:22, May 1, 2015 (UTC)
It's not a big deal, really. Cheers, --CrappyScrap (talk) 13:53, May 1, 2015 (UTC)

I am so so so so so so sorry I hope I don't get banned but I accidentally uploaded a non final fantasy photo to the wiki, do you have the ability take it down and if you do can you please take it down? Much thanks. ThePhoenixDown (talk) 13:39, May 21, 2015 (UTC)

Don't want to get banned, typo ThePhoenixDown (talk) 13:40, May 21, 2015 (UTC)

relax. unrelated images will be deleted by moderators. they don't ban people for a small mistake like that. I'm just a regular user btw. Monterossa (talk) 16:08, May 21, 2015 (UTC)

FFXIV Triple Players[edit source]

On the page, you listed "owned cards", but you only listed a few cards for the players, and not the full deck. What do you think should go there? The full deck for each player (as found on http://ffxivtriad.com/npcs ) or only a few...notable ones? I'm not sure what your criteria for players' owned cards is.--Magicite-ffvi-ios.png Technobliterator TC 21:47, May 25, 2015 (UTC)

It supposed to be their full deck. most sites didn't have info about it when TT was implemented so the table was left unfinished. Monterossa (talk) 00:39, May 26, 2015 (UTC)
Ah, right. I'm going to struggle to add the info myself if/when I get around to it...oh, and btw, grats on becoming a moderator!--Magicite-ffvi-ios.png Technobliterator TC 13:18, May 26, 2015 (UTC)
Thanks for supporting me. Monterossa (talk) 17:06, May 26, 2015 (UTC)

Sorry for posting it in the wrong forum. But can you help me with my question? What are the different crest for each castle at Ivalice in Final Fantasy Tactics: War of the Lions?

I know Gallione has the white lion, while Zeltennia has the Black Lion. What about Limberry, Fovoham, Lesalia and Lionel? Would you mind helping me?

Sorry, I don't know. Monterossa (talk) 07:53, August 30, 2015 (UTC)

FFVI Steam[edit source]

Hey Monterossa, was wondering if you'd be able to get stuff like the Steam icons/emoticons/etc for the new FFVI release? My PC isn't Windows, so I can't get it on Steam myself to find the info. Thanks!--Magicite-ffvi-ios.png Technobliterator TC 18:44, December 8, 2015 (UTC)

None of FFVI items are showing up in Steam market. I think we have to wait until they release the game. Monterossa (talk) 19:17, December 8, 2015 (UTC)
Maybe. Gotta unlock those magics first. No promise though. Monterossa (talk) 06:56, December 26, 2015 (UTC)

Hi. Sure, I LOVE FF5, and FF6 even more so! I just don't edit my Talk Page enough.

On a more lesser note, stuck on FFVI. I just beat Demon, and now I can't work out how to get to Goddess and Fiend.

Hi! I'm KirbiMiroir! (talk) 14:05, January 9, 2016 (UTC)


Do you have the PC version? I can give you my savedata that has all the abilities learned so you can capture everything. Monterossa (talk) 09:17, March 5, 2016 (UTC)

DFF2015/Arcade[edit source]


Where's the link? Monterossa (talk) 01:49, February 5, 2016 (UTC)

I'll help with the translation page then, and leave the screen capturing to you :D Monterossa (talk) 02:23, February 5, 2016 (UTC)
Didn't you translate them already on Ramza's page? Monterossa (talk) 02:28, February 5, 2016 (UTC)
The attacks section on translation page will be a big mess if we put everyone's moves on the same table. can we split each character's moves into their own table? Monterossa (talk) 02:32, February 5, 2016 (UTC)

FFVI battle articles' gallery section[edit source]

Would you be extremely offended if I reverted this and other similar edits? The screenshots I uploaded pretty much covers everything, and my extreme OCD makes me suffer whenever I feel the layout of the article suffers... --CrappyScrap (talk) 16:43, February 8, 2016 (UTC)

Images of the latest release take precedence usually.Keltainentoukokuu (talk) 20:42, February 8, 2016 (UTC)
I wouldn't mind if someone replaced them with Android screenshots altogether. But I spent a lot of time on the layout of those articles, especially the galleries, which I made comic-strips that basically cover everything, in a chronological order. I'm not trying to be a dick and/or a nitpicker, and I mean absolutely no offense, but I honestly think the galleries made more sense the way they were. --CrappyScrap (talk) 21:52, February 8, 2016 (UTC)
Shouldn't we add images from the latest version of the game to the wiki? not replacing it but it should have images from both versions. But if people don't want them I'll stop adding them to the other conflict articles. Monterossa (talk) 01:38, February 9, 2016 (UTC)
Yeah all versions if we have the images. Then we can see the version differences first hand.Keltainentoukokuu (talk) 01:59, February 9, 2016 (UTC)

All versions are covered here on the wiki. After checking those conflict articles, I can't believe someone went and deleted the SNES images that I uploaded. Fenrir9 (talk) 02:12, February 9, 2016 (UTC)

It's not about version, it's about the way things were originally arranged. I don't see the point of having more than one screenshot of precisely the same dialogue, and I don't necessarily think newer version screenshots should precede old ones either. If we're going to talk about precedence, I think continuity and the layout precedes the need to squeeze in duplicates to show each version.
I apologize to Monterossa, who probably didn't need all this paragraph riding on his talk page. If I knew this would become a community issue, I would have addressed it elsewhere.--CrappyScrap (talk) 06:45, February 9, 2016 (UTC)

Voice actors?[edit source]

Say, I was browsing around, and I was surprised but pleased to discover a number of pages for voice actors, many of which were created by you. I know that we never used to have pages for voice actors? I guess the rules changed? I couldn't seem to find any discussion about it, though. Any particular rules I should be aware of regarding pages for voice actors? ProfessorTofty (talk) 01:28, February 19, 2016 (UTC)

Yes, the rules changed. But only voice actors who voiced more than one FF game can have an article. Monterossa (talk) 02:26, February 19, 2016 (UTC)
Okay, good to know. Thanks! ProfessorTofty (talk) 07:26, February 20, 2016 (UTC)

RE:FFX/FFX-2[edit source]

Done, for the X-2 abilities menu. I don't think the accessories menu has any sub-menu. For enemy abilities, I'll upload some of them if I can. Monterossa (talk) 03:28, May 27, 2016 (UTC)
What's the difference? You mean the PS2 Inter version? I think the images from that version should be uploaded anyway. They're different and very hard to find on the internet. Monterossa (talk) 03:37, May 27, 2016 (UTC)
Yeah... even as a FFX series fan, going through X-2 again is brutal. But I'll do it for the wiki! Monterossa (talk) 03:44, May 27, 2016 (UTC)
It's not that I don't like the game but having to check on every detail to make sure I didn't miss any tiny bid of 100% completion is annoying. Monterossa (talk) 03:50, May 27, 2016 (UTC)
Ouch... looks like a big pain to put them back where they were. Monterossa (talk) 08:53, June 10, 2016 (UTC)
For these new images, can you tell the uploaders to do it? or ask them if they have any plan to use these images. Monterossa (talk) 09:54, June 10, 2016 (UTC)

FFX HD PC Omega Ruins Chests[edit source]

Hi, in the article about Omega Ruins, is written "The exception is the PC HD remake version, where players can reroll to get the 99 Warp Spheres by using the save in the ruins". Can you confirm this strategy? --Siegfriedmk (talk) 16:06, June 10, 2016 (UTC)

I'm not sure who add that claim to the article but I think it probably is an exploit related to the auto-save feature. I'm still early in the game so I can't confirm that. Monterossa (talk) 16:28, June 10, 2016 (UTC)
