In no particular order...

  • GameFAQs, Neoseeker, and Supercheats:
    • For being the most amazing FAQ-hosting sites I know.

  • CJayC, SBAllen, and Devin Morgan:
    • General sucking up to the GameFAQs admins. =P

  • [Multiple Users]:
    • For mentioning the missed Crimson Sphere in Chapter 2.

  • [Anonymous]:
    • A real-life friend of mine who allowed me to borrow his Japanese FFX/X-2, then later his U.S. release of them, too. He has chosen to remain anonymous, and I will respect his wishes in that. But, nevertheless, thank you!!

  • A I e x, SinirothX, & SplitInfinity:
    • While they were never involved directly with this FAQ's creation, their FAQs for the original Final Fantasy X and X-2 were what made me able to 100% the original PS2 versions of those games. That level of knowledge is hopefully shown within this FAQ, and I am hugely indebted to them for that.

  • Alexia Foy:
    • A very effective strategy for fighting Paragon and Trema consecutively!

  • Alysse Thompson:
    • Noting that I forgot about the Red and White Rings' inherent Fire and Blizzard spell-giving abilities when writing the Boris strategy in Chapter 1.
    • Correcting a typograpgical error in Chapter 1 - Zanarkand.

  • Aschelia:
    • Noting that, in a party, you can only have one Small/Yuna/Rikku/Paine Creature with one Medium.
    • Noting that I slightly mixed up the details on unlocking the Grand Cup.

  • BlazerPhoenix:
    • The trick with the Besaid Key and resetting,

  • Cassandra Asselstine:
    • Correcting a controls mix-up regarding Last Mission.
    • Suggested elaborations for Floors 10, 60, and 70 in Last Mission.
    • Details on the Tonberry Treasure Trophy.

  • Eric Festa:
    • Noting that, for the Demon Cup, the monsters only need to be leveled up three, not five, times.

  • The Final Fantasy Wiki (http://finalfantasy.wikia.com/wiki/Garment_Grid):

  • goodknife:
    • Noting in a message board topic about certain accessories you can steal from the Founder in Last Mission.

  • Marco Oliveira:
    • Refuting my presumptious notion that Cat Nip was as abusable in FFX-2 HD as in FFX-2.

  • Microsoft & Microsoft Excel:
    • A LOT of automation throughout the guide. This includes the details on enemy bribery, the myriad stat growth charts for Dresspheres and Creature Create enemies, the Mix List, and so on and so forth, immensely cutting down on the work I need to do. ^_^;

  • nemes1s:
    • I referenced his Perfect Game Walkthrough for the original Final Fantasy X-2 a number of times while making this. I also obtained the percentages for completion by area from his guide.

  • psxnitro:
    • Noting I forgot to list the Mascot Dressphere as the first prize for the Youth League Cup.

  • Rafaelo Raymundo:
    • Noting I forgot about the SOS Berserk/SOS Slow abilities attached to the Cat Nip, which were a meager attempt in preventing its abuse.
    • A Chain-oriented strategy for Chac.

  • Ryan Cross:
    • Minor clarification for the Invincible.

  • SBAllen (yes, again =P):
    • The suggestion for the 100% Completion Checkpoint boxes.
    • Confirming nemes1s's Perfect Game Walkthrough for FFX-2 as being compatible with FFX-2 HD (despite a few mathematical errors).
    • Noting the telescope guy in Kilika; speaking with them apparently yields an Invincible later on.
    • Suggesting to note the whole Yellow X thing with the Experiment boss and digging in Bikanel.
    • Noting the warp in Mt. Gagazet.
    • Confirming the Gunner's Gauntlet glitch to work for FFX-2 HD as well as the original.
    • Mentioning that I should note the whole thing that you now see regarding the Heady Perfume and the Gold Hairpin in Chapter 2.
    • Corrections regarding vaguity in my vernacular.

  • Volund Michi:
    • Noting the location of the Festivalist Dressphere.

  • Square Enix:
    • For the excellent series that is Final Fantasy!

  • Me (KeyBlade999):
    • For making this FAQ. =P

  • You, the reader:
    • For hopefully enjoying this FAQ.

Version History

  • v0.20:
    • Split up the FAQ between FFX HD and FFX-2 HD. Currently, FFX-2 HD is done through about half of Chapter 2.
    • Time: 2:33 AM 4/11/2014.

  • v0.30:
    • A rather unproductive weekend. >_> Chapter 2 is complete, at least.
    • Time: 4:28 AM 4/14/2014.

  • v0.50:
    • Chapters 3 and 4 completed this weekend.
    • Time: 1:51 AM 4/22/2014.

  • v0.60:
    • Close enough to being done with Chapter 5 (basically just the end to be done). Then I need to do Last Mission and screw around with some other stuff to be comfortable with calling this "complete"...
    • Time: 3:17 AM 4/28/2014.

  • v1.00:
    • AFAIK, this FAQ's walkthrough can be considered complete: I finished up Chapter 5 and Last Mission to what extent I could. I even put up a small checklist for the areas that contribute to 100% completion. I also applied some supplementary info for Last Mission, mostly Dressphere growth formulas. I also began working on a detailed Dressphere section and have gotten all of the stat charts and formats down, and most of the generalities for most Dresspheres as well. ... Amazing how this one update more than doubled the FAQ's size, just a few KB shy of my FFX guide.
    • Time: 2:41 AM 5/1/2014.

  • v1.05:
    • Error and format corrections. Also beginning to work on the Dresspheres' abilities. Most of the night was spent automating Excel to deal with the bribery and Lady Luck dice simulations.
    • Time: 3:44 AM 5/2/2014.

  • v1.20:
    • Completed the sections regarding all of the Dresspheres, a Blue Bullet list, a Mix list, Garment Grids, and a Trophy Guide.
    • Time: 2:45 AM 5/5/2014

  • v1.25:
    • Working on the Creature Create section.
    • Time: 3:32 AM 5/6/2014.

  • v1.30:
    • Creature Create is virtually done. All that's left in this FAQ are the Creature Create stat charts and the in-depth statistical details on regular main game and Colosseum enemies for now. Even so, I'll first clean up the rest of the guide. Right now, progress is going on getting the in-depth bestiaries completed; the one for the main game is done, and a regular one for the Colosseum is complete, with its in-depth one to be finished by the end of the weekend. After that, the stats should then be listed alongside boss data, and then I'll look into those stat charts.
    • Time: 1:15 AM 5/8/2014 ~ 2:43 AM 5/9/2014.

  • v1.40:
    • Finished up the enemies' in-depth stats for both the main game and Colosseum, and applied those to the boss strategies within the walkthrough. Began work on Creature Create growth stats, albeit in a separate file for my own convenience (~40% complete there). Also elaborated some on Last Mission.
    • Time: 10:05 PM 5/11/2014.

  • v1.50:
    • I'M FINALLY DONE!!! *party blower* Over the course of a long month for X-2, and two for the whole compilation, I've finally managed to get everything detailed that I felt appropriate, the last of these being the Creature Create stat growth charts and comparisons among the creatures, adding almost 1,700 KB in raw file size. (Though, then again, GameFAQs changed it recently so that most FFAQ formatting isn't counted, thankfully.) With this, I am finally happy to call this FAQ complete. ^_^;
    • Time: 12:18 AM 5/14/2014 ~ 10:15 PM 9/14/2014.

  • v1.55 ~ v1.60:
    • Updated minorly for a missing Crimson Sphere. Sorry it took so long, but I've not had the game in forever, so verifying your claims was hard. Also, later minor updates and suggestions.
    • Time: 7:12 PM 7/25/2015 ~ 5:41 PM 9/20/2015.
