Hints

Shortcut on one of the Laguna Experiences:
Before you reach the Galbadia Garden, you have to go through a forest. Squall, Zell, and Selphie will go through a Laguna Experience. First go to the part where you go right or left (where you have to beat some Esthar soldiers). Take the right route. There will be a ladder. Climb down it. Run down the walkway to the next screen. Go forward and go left. You should be in a crystal room. Keep on going straight after you go through the door. Then go to the right. After that, go up the set of stairs. You will be in a crystal room again. Go straight to where the ladder is. This will put you outside on a cliff. Then you will be attacked by about 15-20 Esthar soldiers.

Beat Omega Weapon:
Okay, everyone knows that Omega Weapon is the hardest enemy to beat in the game of Final Fantasy VIII on Playstation. There is a way to bring him down in a few quick steps. 1. Make sure your party has Selphie, Squall and Zell. 2.Make sure either Squall or Zell has Aura spells. 3. Make sure either Squall or Zell has protect. 4. Make Squall or Zell cast Aura/or/protect on Selphie and make the other cast either aura or protect, 5. With a little luck selphie will get THE END, once you see this hit it and Omega Weapon will be down in a simple way. Then when you go to the tutorial, and then info you will have the Proof Of Omega which shows that you are the strongest fighter in the world.

Stronger GF's:
First you teach your GF the boost move, (some GF's May not have this such as Carbuncle) then in battle when one of your characters dissapears hold Select and in the bottom right hand corner there will be a botton that has a square on it. Then contiusly press square untill it has an X over it then stop, the X will eventually dissapear then continue.

Heal All Parties Members & GF's With No Items:
In disc 3 (before going to Lunatic Pandora),if your party members and/or GFs have low HP,and you don't want to use any items, land at the Esthar Airstation. Take the lower pathway from the Airstation and go to the save point where there is a symbol on the path. If your people and/or GFs are hurt at all, when your at the save point, a green light will surround you for about 5-10 seconds. This green light has the same effect as a COTTAGE! All of your party members and GFs will be healed and you didn't even have to use any items out of your inventory!

To Aquire The GF Diablo:
The get the GF knowns as Diablo use the item Magical Lamp after you save Dollet from the Galbadian Solders. Save before you face him because he is very strong with hp around 8,000. He is weak agaisnt ice techniques so make sure you have Shiva, blizzards, blizzaras, and blizzaga.

Very Easy Experience:
This is a way to level up your guy 5-15 levels at a time; First you must have Odin. Second go to the island closest to hell. Then run from all the battles you encounter. Odin should appear and kill off the level 100 monsters. The more you run the more he will appear but watch out because if you run too much your seed level goes down.

Easy Final Boss:
First of all, you need every GF. This might be hard if you didn't use draw on the people ( or things ) from the past. If you've already done that (all of this would be done by finding the ragnarok. It is somewhere in the southwest or southeast. It will show up on your full screen map. Use the chocobo to cross the water). Afterwards, train your main party ( I use Zell, Squall, and Irvine ) up to level 100 and try to get their best weapons. Before going, get as much Aura and cure as possible. Once you get to the sorceress, just let all of your secondary party die. Do this by just healing your primary party. Once you get to your full party, battle like you would against a normal boss, considering she has a fairly low amount of HP. After she does her buisiness, she sends out an awesome looking GF that fights you. If you have it, use meltdown. Demi works pretty good too. Use one of your party members to supply HP and give Aura. Go all out until he changes. He should make little ! things. If he doesn't by the time you kill him, then don't worry ( it takes a long time to kill him, but you might still not see any ). If it does happen, use one person to focus on them. On the true form, every time an Aura runs out, use another. Keep using limit breaks until it goes into the long dream sequence. The end is kind of entertaining though. Good Luck!

Infinite Potions:
Potions are quite useful. To get infinite potions, have Rinoa in your party and go to Timber City. Go to a road which is to screens away from the train station of Balamb Garden to Timber or the opposite. Then you will meet a man who admires Rinoa. Tal with him. He will talk a lot, then leave you with a potion. Then he will go. Repeat this non-stop to get infinite potions at the beginning of the game. Note: Sometimes the man won't be there. If he isn't, simply get out of the screen, go in the hotel, and then come out. The cheat should be working like normal again. Second Note: This cheat is very useful at the second mission because you don't get much salary yet, and potions are quite expensive in your eyes. But later in the game you won't need this, because you should be pretty loaded and won't need otions, but Hi-Potions.

Free Pulse Ammo:
Note: This can only be done once, so don't miss it when you reach that section! You know when you control Irvine at Fisherman's Horizon, judging the instruments the others will use? Okay, don't judge and head to where you battled the rotten, stinking, rusty Galbadia fighting machine, where you see the mayor get's scoffed off. Remember the place (the abandoned railway track) where you peeked on them? There was a house along the track. Okay, control Irvine into the house. You should see a scene. After that scene, talk with the galadian soldier and the old man. Leave the house, and enter again. You will meet the galbadian soldier, half-dead crawling on the floor. He was beaten up by the old man. Talk with him, and he will say nothing. You should receive about five of each kind of bullets for Irvine's limit break. Then you can return to the mayor's house to continue the instrument judging. Note:If you still don't get the bullets after talking with the Galbadian soldier, talk a few more times and you should receive the bullets.

Obtaiming Odin:
Odin is probably the wierdest GF of all. He has not only one but two forms. In Centra, you will find the ruins of a old building that is in the shape of a diamond. You can only get here by the spaceship you get in disk 3 or the Garden you get in disk 2. While there you will find a stair way going in two directions. Go up the one on the right. You will come to a room where you will go to a block. It will rise and you will come to a place with two ladders. Go up the one on the left. You will come to a room where you push a button. Go back down, and right in front of block elevator there will be a platform. Press the button in the middle and a stair case will appear. Go up the stairs and you will see a bird with one eye. Go up to it and take out the eye, there is a ladder near where you enter. take the eye to a place up ahead and you will come to a statue on a dome. Climb up the ladder and place the eye in. then a number will appear. Write down the number because it is different every time you play. Take the eyes back to the bird and place them both where the birds eyes are. Then a door under the bird will open. Go in and Odin will be there. You should have at least 12 - 13 minutes left. You must attack with your strongest attacks before the time hits 0.00. If you run out of time, he will use an attack that kills anything. After defeating him, he only comes when he wants to. But he kills the monsters instantly. to receive his second form, you must have him before you get the spaceship. Seifer is attacked by Odin, but Odin fails and kills himself. at the end of the battle, Odin comes back as a new GF and almost permanently kills Seifer. You will then be able to use him for different attacks.
