Intentions : I know there's a lot of guides out there to help you along with getting this trophy, but none are specific enough to my tastes so I made one real time for you all. If anyone can confirm my questionable (Optional?)s, or have any input let me know! Enjoy!

 

Exploit detailed at the end of the guide only works on versions of the game before patch 1.03. You can still get this trophy if following this guide from the start and there is still room for error!

 

If you'd like to see how this all works, check out this wikia to see exactly how each option affects you and by how much. http://finalfantasy.wikia.com/wiki/Date_Mechanics

 

Here are the starting point values for each character. The goal is to finish all the events below putting Barret in the lead.

Aeris 50

Tifa 30

Yuffie 10

Barret 0

 

Anything that says (Optional) requires you to do something to initiate the dialogue that is not story related. If you see something that does not say (Optional) as the next step you can rest easy and wait for it to come to you.

 

(Optional)Buy a flower from Flower girl(Aeris) after blowing up reactor

Select 'Nothing...hey..."

Then select 'Don't see many flowers around here'

Then select 'Buy one'

 

(Optional)On the train after the alarms go off Jessie explains the security system. Talk to her again.

Select 'Looking forward to it' -3 Tifa

 

Tifa notices you have a flower in the bar

Select 'Give it to Marlene' +5 Barret

 

(Optional)Unecessary, but if you talk to Tifa behind the bar

Select 'I don't feel like it'

 

When Tifa asks if you're going to walk out on her

Select '...Sorry'

 

(Optional)The next morning, talk to Tifa before talking to Barret

Select 'Barret's snoring kept me up....' +5 Barret

 

On the way to sector 5 reactor get through the train without being caught by the security system. +5 Tifa, +5 Barret

 

After defeating airbuster

Select '( Be strong )' +2 Barret

 

While being chased by Reno and Shinra, Aeris falls down and get's attacked

Select 'Hold on a minute!' then run upstairs and push 'the wrong barrel'. Push the top most barrel. -3 Aeris

Wait a moment, then select 'Hold on a minute!' and push the right most barrel. -3 Aeris

Wait a moment, then select 'Hold on a minute!' and push the bottom most barrel. -3 Aeris

 

At Aeris' house she asks if Tifa is you're girlfriend

Select 'Yeah, that's right' -5 Aeris

 

While Aeris is guiding you to sector 7, she stops for a moment

Select 'Take her home.'

 

*STOP*(Optional)Check the trophy guide for details on the 'Consummate Cross-dresser' trophy before proceeding

After being selected as Don Corneo's date, interact with him.

Select 'Umm...'

Then select 'Yes, his name's Barret' +5 Barret

 

After viewing the scene with president shinra, the party lands in a sewer. Speak to Aeris before Tifa +3 Aeris

 

(Optional?)At Aeris' house, walk upstairs to see Barret. Marlene bets Aeris liked Cloud

Select 'I don't know' +3 Tifa, -3 Aeris

 

After saving Aeris from the chamber with Red XIII

Select 'Barret, take care of her!' +2 Barret

 

Once it's time to select a party, include Barret and Red XIII. +2 Barret

 

(Optional)After talking with the president, you're in a room with Tifa. Talk to her.

Select '( Kinda hard )' -1 Tifa

 

After approaching the door in the same room

Select 'I wonder how Barret is doing' +3 Barret

Then select 'I wonder how Red XIII is doing'

Then select 'I wonder how Aeris is doing'

 

After the wire sequence, you land outside of midgar. Put Barret and Red XIII in your party. +1 Barret

 

(Optional)If at this point or any other you decide to pick up Yuffie, make sure you pick the correct decisions in conversation the first time. This is not required, though Yuffie is tough to be the chosen date so this decision will not throw you off. In fact, picking up Yuffie makes it slightly easier to date Barret.

***DO NOT USE THE SAVE POINT IN THIS AREA OR ENTER THE MENU***

Approach and talk to Yuffie

Select 'Not interested' +2 Yuffie

Approach and talk to Yuffie

Select 'Petrified...' +2 Yuffie

Select 'Wait a second!' +2 Yuffie

Select 'That's right' +2 Yuffie

Select 'Let's hurry' +2 Yuffie

 

After the flashbacks Barret starts to leave the Inn.

Select 'Wait a sec'

Then select 'Beautiful, just beautiful!' +3 Barret

 

(Optional)At the house just right of the Inn at Kalm the person downstairs, make sure Barret and Yuffie are in your party. If you do not have Yuffie, put Red XIII in your party.

Select 'You're full of it' +2 Barret, -1 Yuffie

 

(Optional)Upstairs in the same building

Select 'Yeah, maybe' +2 Barret, -1 Yuffie

 

(Optional)After entering fort condor, just outside the first cave. go up the ladders and talk to the first npc you see. Ensure Barret and Red XII are in your party.

Select 'I guess so' +5 Barret

Then select 'All right' +5 Barret

 

(Optional)Once you are on the cargo ship, if Yuffie is in your party, do not give her a tranquilizer(you can still pick up the materia she is blocking after selecting a party later)

Select 'Nope' -2 Yuffie

 

(Optional?)Immediately after, talk to Aeris meandering in a soldiers outfit

Select 'I dunno...' -2 Aeris

 

(Optional?)After ascending the stairs, climb the nearby ladder to find Tifa also in a soldiers outfit

Select 'I don't know' -2 Tifa

 

After Barret jumps into Wonder Square to get away from the party, talk to Yuffie. This event is the one benefit to having Yuffie in your party(thanks to vZA87 for this information). If you don't have Yuffie, choose Red XIII for no change.

Select 'Go Together' +3 Yuffie, -2 Tifa, -2 Aeris

 

When choosing a party with Cloud and Barret in Coral Prison, choose either Cait Sith or Red XIII.

 

(Optional)Before entering Gongaga town ensure your party consists of Aeris and Tifa. After entering the southern most home you'll meet Zack's parents. Upon leaving the building Aeris and Tifa will be standing outside. Do not speak to either. -3 Tifa, -3 Aeris

 

(Optional)After entering Cosmo Canyon, ensure Barret is in your party when prompted to make a party. The third character does not matter.

Follow Red XIII up the stairs and converse with him. Follow him into the weapons shop afterwards. Go up the stairs and through the cavern door straight ahead, there you will find Barret. Speak to him.

Select 'Go on' +3 Barret

Select 'And then?' +3 Barret

*Pre-Patch 1.03* You can select 'Yeah, whatever...' and speak to him again so you can repeatedly select 'Go on' for points, though the points accrued this way may or may not affect the trophy and I do not recommend you exploit this as an option as it may void the trophy.

 

Here are the final point values after making every decision above exactly, assuming Yuffie was in the party.

 

Aeris 29

Tifa 27

Yuffie 19

Barret 53

 

Barret is decimating the competition and wants Cloud bad at this point. So if you made mistakes, feel free to use the wikia posted at the top and subtract/add the differences from this end point value to make sure you're still going to make it!

 

After getting the additions of the 'Tiny Bronco' and 'Cid', you are able to visit Wutai, but let's hold off on that and go straight to the gold saucer to make sure we get this trophy.

 

Head to North Corel and into the Gold Saucer. After retrieving the Keystone from Battle Square, try to leave. This will Initiate the date sequence. If Barret pulls you out of your room, you probably did something right :) you will receive your trophy after reaching the main area with Barret.

Very nice guide !

 

I've read somewhere that you could do this line multiple time to decrease relationship with Tifa : (Optional)After talking with the president, you're in a room with Tifa. Talk to her.

Select '( Kinda hard )' did not try it cause I missed that interaction -_-

 

I pretty much followed the same route, except that I picked Yuffie, refused to give her a Tranquilizer in the Boat from Junon (decrease) but then picked her in the Golden Saucer insteand of Red XIII, mostly because Yuffie was a non factor for the race at this point but I wanted to lower even more the relationship with Aeris and Tifa (who both get a decrease if you pick Yuffie in the GS but doesn't if you pick Red). Anyway that was my 2 cents :D

Using the glitch in Cosmo Canyon does add points to Barret but if you do it too many times it throws it into a negative value. Meaning that you still go on a date with Barret but the trophy will not pop. I found this out the hard way and had to do a second play through last night. I followed the same dialogue choices and made several saves. When I did get to Cosmo Canyon I did the glitch approx. 5 times and continued on. I received the trophy the second Cloud and Barret go to the yellow station room.

 

As a side note, using the boosts (all three of them), I was able to get from the beginning of the game to the trophy in 3 hours and 8 minutes. The flashback in Kalm is probably 1/3 of the time...

I followed a guide that lists exactly everything yours has, got the trophy, and I didn't use the Cosmo Barret glitch, so I think this is good to go. (I also didn't pick up Yuffie until after everythng)

 

Just one thing, maybe you should be a bit more specific when presenting some of the sequences. For those of us who have played this a million times there are no problems, but "wire sequence" might not mean much to new comers. Also I think you should mention the affection points everyone starts off with, (Aerith 50, Tifa 30, Yuffie 10 Barret 0) plus all points increase/decrease/none for each interaction, so if someone screws up, they can try to fix it up a bit in future sequences.

I could not find anything that says you can replicate the decisions with Tifa. I know you can select the same thing multiple times but whether or not it gives Tifa points is beyond my knowledge.

 

As far as the gold saucer goes I'll go over my numbers again and check to see if it should be changed or mentioned. That is a good tactic though as Yuffie generally doesn't get any points and is a more difficult date to catch and this reduces the easier dates to catch. Thanks for your input ^.^

I cannot rely on the negative factor as I do not believe that it would choose Barret over someone else while his value is negative. Generally any negative number resets to 255 in this game. I'm not saying what you're saying is false, I just do not wish to have people rely on glitches that could potentially block this trophy for them. I believe that even though you used the glitch to date Barret, you would have dated Barret even if you didn't use the glitch.

I think that the constant mention of 'climbing the wire' was enough to call it a 'wire sequence' as I want to have as minimal spoilers as possible. I do not include the points because it's a walkthrough. This isn't offering optional paths, it's a strict path to follow. If you do miss something, this guide is not intended to redirect you. If you do mess up, it's designed so you can continue regardless of mistakes made. It gives you the best possible outcome. Though, in case people do not know about other guides I do agree the point system used in this could be good knowledge, so I will link the wikia's point value guide to my guide.

Question for those who've accomplished this. I missed out on buying the flower from Aerith, will this hinder any chance I have of actually getting this?

 

Also during the part where you're headed to Sector 5, and you aren't suppose to get caught by the security system. Does that mean beat the timer as it goes down?

About the flower, if you do everything else right, you can exploit the Barret Cosmo glitch a few times and it should work, assuming the glitch doesen't lock you out of the trophy. (which it shouldn't)

 

And yes, the sector 5 section, you do have to make itto the end of the train before the timer expires.

Great to know, so I'm on a solid track then. Thanks for answering this Dancing.

You can still get her limit breaks. I did I grinded them some time after the date when the game doesn't allow you to take her out of the party.

But you can still use Aerith before the date, just make sure to check the guide so you know when to NOT pick her, and when you SHOULD.

 

Sweet thank you!

Right. What I wonder is, how the hell did people figure out these numbers existed?

 

Also this guide needs to be a sticky, especially as this is probably the most annoying trophy in here.

 

The numbers were retrieved from the pc version, checking out the data/code in the files and what not. Someone was able to determine this.

I would make it your last trophy. Don't stress about it. Eventually with x3 speed and 'god mode' and not caring about anything else, you can probably snag this trophy in 3 hours or less.
