Random title all the way!!!

 

So a small hobby of mine is just modding, you know. Breaking things and junk. So it wasn't 5 minutes after arriving in the mail that I broke the Project Zero demo and found a few bits. Hopefully some more is hiding in there but for now I figured I'd show and share for the sake of just knowing, speculation and ideas. I don't know if it's been acknowledged already or if anything is new, either way I find it interesting :) maybe you do too.

I'll post anything else I find interesting sometime assuming all is good here :)

That is so interesting!  A FF1 with Type-7 film has turned my world upside down.  I'm dying for them to release a game that finally has Moon Incense because they seem to love it for some reason.  Thank you so much for sharing, I love hidden stuff like this.  :'D

Wow, so they attempted Moon Incense in two games and it never made it into the final version of either? Really weird! I love to hear about stuff that never made it into the game, like FF4's unused files, so thanks for posting this! I'm intrigued by the scrap book, too; I wonder what their intentions were with that.

It took me a moment to comprehend type-7 also. I had to check to make sure I wasn't missing something :o. But it is quite something and I think if it was accessed via gamesharks on console it would make the game a fun challenge by using type-7 all the way through. Hehe you can also turn the flashlight off :I

You mean the blood-stained one? O.o

I'm using pcsx2 and a few memory editing tools. By finding your film quantity you can get the inventory, which gives you debug display, which gives you player co-ords to find, which gives you access to other rooms, so on and so forth. xP 1 thing just leads to another, try it sometime!

 

It's really a difficult question with the moon incense. Back on the old forum I posted some other debug stuff but also asked about the moon incense. I knew it was useless but with a little bit of editing I was able to use it from the inventory. All it did was heal me and that could either be it's actual purpose or just a default reaction the game has to nonfunctional items :/ there's really no way to find out right now. For all we know it could just be a dummy item used to develop while the rest of their team is working on something. Either way it's interesting stuff and it makes me wonder if it's in any of the other games.

I've seen the same one (without blood stains obviously) in anime and Japanese films. It's a bit of a common prop (at least I've seen it a lot in the films I would see) yet you can buy one.

Might be drivel but these are the file names for Moon Incense and Moon Grass if someone wants to translate it. But it probably won't be any different O.o

ITM_REISEKI

ITM_GEKKAKOU

 

Moon Incense has auto-equip/event use properties the same as the flashlight and camera, or a key. It probably would have been used as an event item instead of an inventory thing. So it probably was just a debugging item used to trigger scenes in the game before the actual item was finished. I'm going through PZ3 right now but as far as I can tell there's no "moon" items, it's strange also because it feels like they don't want people looking haha. There's such a drastic change with the inventory in 3, where as 1 & 2 are literally the same. A lot of the changes are purly there to make it harder to find :I maybe they're onto us!

 

Also, Moon Grass has it's own property that no other item does... so who knows. When I edit it to be used it has a crazy sound effect and just heals me for a ton.

 

Someone should just straight up email tecmo and ask what the items do.

"reiseki" is most likely 霊石, which is "spirit stone", which I guess... they would have grabbed from the actual Spirit Stone item? Since it's apparently supposed to share that image?

 

"Gekkakou" would probably be 月下香 which is an actual plant (tuberose to be exact), or if you separate it out into different words 月下 means moonlight/under the moonlight and 香 means incense.

 

/random language trivia

 

(Anyone want to dive into the Japanese version and find the Japanese names just to make me happy because I've been wondering for so long? orz)

That was quick :D good job. So yeah it might just be a spirit stone then, probably also lost in translation. It might also just be left over from PZ1 O.o.

 

I'd help with getting the japanese names but unfortunately I don't have a copy. It would be nice to find out :) I'm interested also.
