TheJake : (31 May 2019 - 09:27 PM) In FF4, are spirit points only used for the shop?  It seems like you just need these crystals for upgrades, but I'm not 100% sure. :P
Kicksville : (02 June 2019 - 01:29 PM) The save point shop and the post-game shop after you're done (for costumes and such)

I found the end of hist final chapters is very shocking.


Well, after knowing that Fatal Frames usually had "bad", "not that bad", "good enough" and "good" endings, I hoped that his could be fixed by playing in hard mode, but this is not true.

Probably FF4 was released not fully finished, because of bugs and etc. By the way, could someone answer me on this also?: http://www.gamefaqs....wers?qid=372430


But about the main question... Err, was the Choushiro a ghost in the beginning of the game?

I found it kind of suspicious that he ended his journey in same place where he started it.

So it's kind of recurrence, like the ghost was fulfilling his duty again and again... and after falling from roof he will wake up again and start to search for Ruka?

Or was that just a coincidence?

Yeah, he was dead from the beginning. He was on the island in 1972 on the Day Without Suffering, which is when he recorded this tape. Then he spotted Haibara and followed him to the roof, and Haibara killed him, just the same as in Choushiro's last chapter. And yeah, that's why at the start of the game he wakes up on the ground in front of the hospital. There's some debate over whether he and Haibara have been repeating this cycle over and over again since the DWS and Choushiro just doesn't remember, but I don't think the Ruka parts of his quest began until Ruka actually came to the island and Sayaka called on him for help.


I don't think they ever intended to "fix" his story on different modes, because, well... he's dead, so there's not much you can do about it. In the end, it turns out his story is also about recovering lost memories, just like Ruka and Misaki, but unlike them he doesn't realise he's forgotten anything. Things have to play out the way they do for him to understand what's happened to him.


About the GameFAQs question, that does sound like a glitch. I'd assume it's because when you're in Room 412 before, the door never actually needs to be unlocked, you're just transported straight to the hospital, and since they probably assumed nobody would go all the way back, they never bothered programming it to unlock. Just guessing.
