In all due time I'm sure someone will put the original UI back in. I will agree with you that it is indeed way too big but its only a minor thing. This version is still amazing and indeed the best version despite this minor flaw

I'm wondering if anyone can/will mod the original art for the pre-rendered backgrounds back in. The backgrounds not having been improved really stands out compared to the models, and look how good the original art was before it was compressed for PS1!

hate how it takes almost literally a quarter of the screen

you'd think they'd keep it the same size or if they were resizing they woulda made it smaller than it is in the finished product since they were going for mouse controls,who the heck needs humongous buttons when you have mouse precision..?

It's a mobile port in the 1st place and that is what i hate the most about it. The huge buttons are so that you don't missclick when using a touch pad, also the movements with the mouse are because you must be able to play it on mobile.

I love the new graphics but in between the horrible menus, horrible analog movements and cheats i would rather play the emulated version of PS1.

FF9 is my favorite final fantasy but I'm not rebuying till the original combat menu is back. I'm not going to have the character on the far left covered up 80% of the time. Nope, won't do it. I tried going back to ps1 ff9 and I just can't handle the pixelation anymore.

I've grown too accustomed to 1080p that having the character models at 240p or whatever doesn't work for me. FF9 and 8 used to look awesome when I still played FF12. But now I can't do either.

the majority of the original hi-res art has been lost so that's never gonna happen.

however there's a dude on neogaf who has gotten some f***ing ridiculous results by putting the psx backgrounds through some filters. here's a comparison between the lost art and his upscaled version.

original hi-res art: http://i.imgur.com/MvzPHKB.jpg
upscaled psx art: http://abload.de/img/retroarch-0425-140802qnsg0.png

looks pretty damn good imo. here are all his replies that had upscaled images:

http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showpost.php?p=201922455&postcount=736

so while an original art mod will never happen maybe somewhere down the line somebody will replace these low res backgrounds with upscaled images.

also there's some posts somewhere in that thread about progress on a ui mod.

Good cause I love IX but I hate this large UI in combat. For example in the beginning versus the starting "enemy" you can barely see Blank unless you are waiting on all characters for their ATB to charge. So lame.
