Strobe lighting and the scent of musty old books rises from within the fog...
Eisenalex : (16 August 2018 - 02:07 PM) 8 and 10 were my favourites. 10 mostly because I love Choushirous storyline so much.
Chou : (16 August 2018 - 02:09 PM) As much as I dislike the flashlight, I'm kinda anxious to play his chapter. I wanna know how his story ends up. As long as the kid's school stuff doesn't take too long, hoping to knock out chapter 9 tonight!
Chou : (16 August 2018 - 02:09 PM) My mind is still stuck on the end of chapter 8 though... Misakiiiiii T_T
Eisenalex : (16 August 2018 - 02:11 PM) I know what you mean. What I disliked the most about the flashlight was that it took too long to regenerate. It happened way too often that I had to stop in the middle of the fight and run in circles until I could fight again, lol.
midwinter : (16 August 2018 - 02:16 PM) I think Chapter 9 is my favourite
midwinter : (16 August 2018 - 02:17 PM) Not to be spoilery, but it has some really cool locations
Chou : (16 August 2018 - 02:22 PM) argh that happened in the backyard part when all those ghosts regenerate! I couldn't keep up
Chou : (16 August 2018 - 02:22 PM) and !!!!! new locations?!
midwinter : (16 August 2018 - 02:22 PM) yes! be free, my child, you are no longer stuck in the hospitals
Chou : (16 August 2018 - 02:24 PM) Omggg... Do the kids really need to go get their school schedule tonight and meet their teachers....?  :que:
midwinter : (16 August 2018 - 02:24 PM) definitely not, education isn't that important
midwinter : (16 August 2018 - 02:25 PM) < dispenser of wisdom and good advice
Chou : (16 August 2018 - 02:28 PM) "It'll be a real adventure on the first day, guys! Discovering the unknown!"
Eisenalex : (16 August 2018 - 02:32 PM) Are they supposed to meet their teachers before they start going to school?
Chou : (16 August 2018 - 02:48 PM) Yeah. Their school is different and they don't get their class schedule until tonight. GRowing up I got mine in the mail so I could call my friends and see what classes we had together.
Chou : (16 August 2018 - 02:48 PM) So tonight we go, they get their schedule and their locker #'s, and get to go and see where their classes are. Which is nice since there's only like 3 min breaks to get from one classroom to the next
GregZerO : (16 August 2018 - 04:56 PM) I need to replay FF4 and visit all those beautiful unsetting cozzy rooms again.
GregZerO : (16 August 2018 - 05:07 PM) Listening to the soundtrack again I remembered this 8 bit version of Tsukimori song a friend from school made this for me and uploaded it on youtube. https://www.youtube....h?v=k0ZlvwD2Sws
GregZerO : (16 August 2018 - 05:08 PM) not sure if i ve shared it before  :thinking:
midwinter : (16 August 2018 - 05:12 PM) i don't think you have! that's awesome <3

I was inspired by midwinter to see if anyone would be up for a forum challenge?  The requirements to encounter the Hand From Floor ghost are quite a slog, but I've made an award and will give rep to anyone who goes to the trouble!  I thought experiencing something for the first time in a game we're all familiar with could be fun, even if we've already seen it.   :icon_tengai:

There won't be any rules or deadlines, feel free to join in if you've faced it before (maybe we could decide a name for him?), other than providing a picture to show us your findings.  Instructions to find the ghost below:

Sounds fun, moreover I've never encountered it. It seems like a very rare random ghost encounter, there are no specific rules either. I believe it's called 「床から伸びる手」 in Japanese version of FF1, and it roughly translates as 'stretched hand (that came) out from the floor'. I'll check Japanese PS2 version later today (can't play in broad daylight) and probably will do the same with EU version next week.

 

There is actually an another instruction video on niconico

I'm sorry for double post, I'm sure that someone could merge it in one.

 

I finally got it (it's called 'Hands from Floor'). Luckily, I didn't have to play too far from the beginning. You can encounter it during 1st Night, just proceed to Burial Room and wait there for random ghosts. After hordes of Broken Necks, Bound Men and Female Heads (Floating Woman will most likely swing by, too) this ghost hand will reveal itself, but it won't rush at you like other ghosts. Instead, this hand will be lying silently in wait for Miku to step on it, so it could get a nice excuse to grab Miku's leg. After Miku is done shaking it off, ghost hand will try to get away, and this is the exact moment when you should shoot it. For me it spawned here.

 

Here it is (don't mind the time, it's crazy, because I played it on emulator)

HA! Finally got it. I thought I'd screwed up somewhere, because I kept hearing the music but could never find it. And at one point the music cut out and was replaced with something like a mosquito whine that rose in pitch as I got closer to where I assume the hand must have been lurking. I never managed to get it to grab me, so I used louischou's technique of waiting for it to appear in the Doll Room and then snapping it through the hole in the floor.

 

All of which is beside the point. Here is the hand ghost and I claim my five pounds:

Sorry for the crappy phone pic, and sorry it's taken me so long, I kept forgetting! Also, I'm not sure why my PS2 thinks it's 5th July. >_>

It never spawns in the same place. I tried to catch it the other day and I found it in that place (Burial Room) only after several attempts. By attempts I mean this really freaky sound alerting player that hand is nearby.

 

Could you tell me how many random ghosts have you fought to get to ghost hand? I'm starting to think that 'random' is not the most correct word to describe those encounters with ghosts. In my case they always come out in specific order and ghost hand is always a 14th ghost:

  1. bound man
  2. broken neck
  3. female head
  4. broken neck
  5. broken neck
  6. bound man
  7. female head
  8. floating woman
  9. bound man
  10. female head
  11. bound man
  12. bound man
  13. female head
  14. hands from floor

That's weird, I was making a tally as I fought them, but I only fought twelve and Hand from Floor was the thirteenth. I can't remember what order they came in, though.

I have faced the only hand that isn't annoying!

I was doing redoing my walkthrough I did of the game anyway,(good way to get lots of points on a fresh new game!) so I decided to face the hand too.

Weirdly enough, I had to keep changing rooms and could never find it. Until I went into the doll room.
