Dunno what the current status of this discussion is but it is definitely NOT like that in the original version. They never go in the ground when diving, they stay above and rise back to their normal height. I have also never seen single ones glitch like they do in the Steam version.
I don't remember whether or not we've welcomed you, but welcome -- and awesome introduction! Well, it's on my Steam wishlist, just like the PSP version is still on my Amazon wishlist... but it certainly seems as though you've dedicated a great deal to it. I can't guarantee *when*, but I will support/invest in more XSEED some more in due time.
I was really surprised today when I loaded OiF to see if the update really got the game rid of all the bugs! At the title screen, I thought "what's those vertical lines doing there?", but then I loaded a save game and, after a couple of seconds, was like "hey, this doesn't seem stretched!" I played for a little bit, and not only were all the bugs gone, but it really was true widescreen. So, congratulations Sara and everyone involved! Can't wait to play Origin like that, and meanwhile I got a new incentive to play through OiF again.
Most common response: You don't HAVE to use the New Game+ features
that aside, W-Boost & the improved HP upping items gimped the challenge of the PSP version and I wouldn't want those in the PC version. Nor would I want the PSP's shitty resolution and reduced polygon boss models ;P
