Hello, let me just start by saying that I'm new to the forum, but not to KH. Well I've just completed my normal difficulty run of KH1, but I didn't do any of the Final Mix stuff like fighting Unknown, I'll save that for my proud run. I'm ready to start the proud run but I noticed when attempting synthesis the first time round that it was COMPLETELY different from the original game. I've already looked at the synthesis guide on this forum, but what I'm looking for here is a strategy on how to avoid that last desperate scramble for materials. How can I make it so I can get most of the items when they become available?
