Battle Order
Final Fantasy X is the first Final Fantasy to feature the Conditional Turn-based Batlle(CTB) System, where the time passes only when commands are performed in battle. The order of Allies and enemies is displayed in the window in the top right hand corner of the screen. The order may change depending on what a character or enemy does in battle.

   Switching Charatcers
To switch characters in battle press the L1 button to bring up a screen with the inactive characters. After selecting who you wish to switch in, that character will be brought into battle and can act immediately.

   Trigger Commands
Trigger commands are special commands that become availible in certain times of battle. To access trigger commands press the left directional pad, and then select the the desired command.

   Overdrive
The overdrive gauge charges up when ever the proper conditions are met. Overdrive modes determine these conditions. When the overdrive gauge is full the word "Overdrive" pops up above the battle menu. You select the overdrive like you would a Trigger Command.

   Overdrive Modes
Overdrive modes determine the conditios that need to be met in order to charge the overdrive gauge.You can select the Overdrive mode of eachcharacter in the overdrive section of the main menu. You get more modes by fulfilling the required conditions of a certain overdrive a certain amount of times.

Mode NameConditions

There are many more Overdrives to learn, so experiment in battle to learn them.
