Tried pressing every button, nothing seems to be working.

I've Googled around trying to find an answer to this and it seems like it might not be possible to turn it off (on various releases of the game). I'm not 100% sure, though.

Unfortunately, you can't. Not on this version. PS1, you could.

How? Can you do it on PC? Never heard of it, but it has been a while I played on PS1.... now I'm playing the 2013 Steam version.

It was either the PC or Steam version that changed the format of the menus and controls that got rid of that feature, and the rumble.

The way to do it on the PS1 version was to tap the L1 Button. However, I just tried it on the Remaster, and it does not work.

Pretty sure it’s L2 when you have the cursor over an enemy. Not playing so can’t check.

Just tested your theory about 30 times, and the answer to the OP is still that you cannot disable the red "Target" marker from enemies in this version of the game.

The PlayStation version back in '99 had the L1 Button as the way to remove it, and that is both by in-game testing, and the manual itself stating it on page 5.

Not on the PS4 Remaster. I have the game up right now, and have pressed L1 to no reaction from the game other than adding a second window for targeting the enemies. It did not get rid of the red Target indicator.

This just toggles the grey help box that displays target names on/off.
