My FF8 disc 1 seems to have a pretty nasty scratch on it causing the openning movie to hang up. This happens on both my regular playstation and in the epsxe. I've looked all over the net for a regular game save at the first save point without cheats applied, and i can't seem to find one. I've checked the gamefaq ones, and the most promising looking one had it's earliest save as being an hour in and at lvl 50+:hdbash: . So i was wondering if someone could post a link to a memcard save or email me one at [email protected]. I would be forever in your debt.

i can't get past the opening movie, so i can't even start a game unless i get a save at the first save point from someone else.

no hushypushy, i think FF series on PSX (VII and VIII) would like as to watch the opening movie. and squaresoft didn't want us to skip it. we can't do anything (press the buttons), but just to sit and enjoy the fmv.

ah, you mean THAT opening movie. i thought you meant the one even before you get to "new game" :p

so anyway, neithon, have you ever played FF8 before? if so, just tell me what you want me to name your characters and ill play it to the first save for ya. if you've never played it before, you might want to try repairing the disc (disc doctor or the toothpaste scrub), borrowing a disc from a friend, or selling back your used game to teh store and then buying a used one back.

Yeah, i've played it before, i bought a copy of ff8 when it first came out and beat it soon afterwards. I haven't played it since. I just want their names to be the defaults.

Now i need to find a save of the chocobo minigame for the pocketstation thing, with the save for a ntsc copy of the game. or find a dex drive to get a copy of my own.

Dunno if anyone even still reads this forum, but I went looking for a Final Fantasy 8 First Save File because much like neithon, for some reason, my FF8 First disc wouldn't go past the first FMV.

I have downloaded the save file that HushyPushy originally made for Neithon, and now I can play my game again.
