What's this? Impossible for PAL? So once again, the non-US fans are screwed over. Not that I care about this in particular, as I lack the inclination to make the effort to obtain Excalibur II -- SN Cocoon Sig 21:57, June 5, 2010 (UTC)

It's because the PAL game (50Hz) is 1/6th slower speed than the NTSC game (60Hz). PAL sacrifices the refresh rate for better picture quality. In retrospect, the Excalibur II time should be increased to 14 hours for PAL, but it didn't and so it is more nigh-impossible to get than it is in the NTSC version.

I know that; I did read that bit. The issue is the fact that they didn't reprogram the game clock tick rate or, as you suggest, reassign the target time. As an English player of games that have initial western releases in the USA, I have to put up with the majority of those games having US spellings (exceptions are welcome but rare). I can deal with that. But I object to fundamental flaws like this that crop up because they can't be arsed to do the localisation properly. Or at all, in some cases – there's still no PAL release of Kingdom Hearts Re:CoM!</anger> -- SN Cocoon Sig 22:55, June 5, 2010 (UTC)
Do you really think you could reach the destination in 14 hours? It's still ridiculously hard. Jeppo (Talk | contribs) 22:58, June 5, 2010 (UTC)

WHERE!?!?! Edit

Where does it says In-game that you need to have 12 hours to get excalibur 2? also where DOES it says that there is a Excalibur 2 ?XzarDragon 16:31, July 19, 2010 (UTC)

Actually, a librarian in Daguerro does vaguely allude to its existence, but that's all the info you get. The game gives no clues as to Excalibur II's location, nor the time limit. Zodiac Spear in FFXII, anyone? -- Sorceror Nobody Flan 16:42, July 19, 2010 (UTC)
There's an Excalibur II card. That should be enough to make any Tetra Master player wary. No clue about how to get it, though. KujaRhapsodos 16:46, July 19, 2010 (UTC)
It happens a lot. These kind of things are hidden deep in-game, and attainable only with the help of a strategy guide. People need their pennies. - Henryacores 16:53, July 19, 2010 (UTC)
Oh, yeah. Card, too. Forgot about that. Also, failing strategy guides, there's always a certain website, doubtless one you are familiar with, which has an invaluable wealth of information :P -- Sorceror Nobody Flan 17:12, July 19, 2010 (UTC)
Yeah, right SN. As if IX isn't 5 years older. - Henryacores 23:53, July 19, 2010 (UTC)
Well yes, but that isn't really a problem for anyone nowadays... unless they plan to time travel into the past just so that they can experience the world without FFWiki :S -- Sorceror Nobody Flan 15:08, July 20, 2010 (UTC)

check this Perfect game guide http://www.gamefaqs.com/ps/197338-final-fantasy-ix/faqs/41181 , check the FAQ part , it says THAT YOU can get Excalibur II after a overflow of the clock and someone has proved it , can we add this?

I suppose it does mean you CAN get it, but I consider and bug exploit to be cheating... Final verdict; I'd say yes, but clearly mention it is by exploiting a flaw in the coding and not a legitimate strategy (unless someone says otherwise, it's not a large concern over the last bit, just my opinion)

Technically, he used a gameshark to test it, so can that really be classified as confirmation? However there is one person (espiritduo) leaving his PlayStation running in order to confirm it.

Just to clarify, the overflow does NOT happen after 256 x 100 hours as sometimes assumed (and had been put on this page). The displayed time is calculated from an internal timer, which counts in 60ths of a second, and overflows when it reaches 2^32 (around 2 years 98 days, as the linked FAQ states). 2.25.110.106 15:26, December 1, 2013 (UTC)

Interesting. But is it possible to collect it after the overflow? 79.68.210.125 21:33, April 20, 2014 (UTC)
