Good morning everyone, I'm a newbie here.
Discovered the Ys series, curious about it, I bought some titles on Steam, including Chronicles+. The first one has been a real adventure and I pursued every achievement, since I liked it a lot. I started on nightmare mode since the beginning, since there was a hint into the achievements section. Now all I have to do in order to finish the game is to beat Dark Fact.
The problem is simple: is there a trick to defeat him? He's just too fast, the hitbox sucks and most of my hits aren't counted and the damage isn't enough to kill him before the tiles start to become few. I've already seen videos and it seems so simple, but once I take the controlof adol again, I can't reach him. Adol seems just... slow, and controls are weird. I have all the right equipmentl, I guess... silver armor and weapon, attack ring and Gemma's talisman. Any hint? I'm really in despair... Thanks in advance.

Sorry for the delay in answering. I only check here every now and then. I tend to... forget for a few months.
I take it by now, you've since long beaten Dark Fact ( and also judging by the 1 post ), but in case you somehow haven't and this reply sends you an email reply;
You need to predict his movement. Yes, he is fast, but he always moves in a specific pattern and can't change his direction. He bounces from side to side. Therefore, you need to make quick calculations in your head "Can I get over there to land a few hits in? Can I corner him and get more hits in before he outruns me?"
Now I'm certainly not someone with a flawless track record at beating Dark Fact, sometimes I beat him on the first try, and other times I sit there for 20 minutes with frustration brewing. But that's basically the trick to beating him.
And as far as I know, rings have no effect in Ys 1 / 2 during boss battles but I could be wrong about that. I don't remember, but I don't think they have.
