If you have played Final Fantasy X, either its original version for PS2 or its remastered version for PS4 and PSVita, you might remember Thunder Plains and its lightning dodge challenge to get the Mars sigil.

It’s quite challenging and it might take a while. I once got it (and I have a PS2 memory card to prove it), but I was not in the mood to do it again on the remastered version.

That’s why I decided to build a simple machine to do the job for me. Because constantly processing inputs to produce outputs is what machines do best.

Just by using a LDR, a servo and an Arduino you can dodge lightnings like a Pro too.

You can download the script and the schema in Github


By building this, you can avoid not only 200 lightnings but as many you like, I did 1066 in a few hours.


Happy gaming.
