I'm pretty sure it is, and it's part of the SeeD mod that isn't out yet.  It, along with the large text and other Icons, etc. are the hardest piece to the puzzle, so I figured I would release the Alpha without them, as it might take me another week or more to get that last part in. (but oh, what a part.)

Here's a preview:
(http://www.13tomidnight.net/FF8/seedreborn/iconfl_mastersample.jpg)

This is the main part I'm using from the old SeeD mod, but I had to re-create a lot of it and there are still minor alignment issues... just need to figure out where they go, etc.

This mod seems to cause minor glitches or artifacts or whatever you call it in the text itself in form of small black lines or dots, which can even be seen in your own screenshots if you enlarge them but other than that, awesome mod. Good work and cant wait for the beta release. I'm very grateful for all your hard work guys. Keep up the good work, let's get closer and closer to perfection. Cheers.

Edit: Oh btw the Pet Pals won't work properly for me. Shows no image, only text. Hope this will be fixed in future releases. Once again, keep up the good work, you rock.

I'm gonna wait for the beta release before i start another complete run through FF8 from start to finish :D Hope it will be soon, but take your time to get it right.

Thanks!  Beta will be sweet if it works properly ;)

Also - if you can tell me where the artifacts are, I can find them.   Please make a list of any others you notice. 
Most of the time, it's a misaligned letter or it's because my drop shadow is one pixel too far to the left.  Something I've already fixed would be: every time you see a number 5, there is a line through the next letter or number you see -- this is actually the left side of the number 6 - so I've fixed a few that I've noticed issues with... like the lowercase letter 'u' bleeding into the 't' frame on the right side, etc.

Please make notes of any other text artifacts you see!
The next mod will also very likely have a few of these artifacts (beta!) but if we work together to catalog the issues, they will all be handled eventually :)

I'm going to go check on those pet pals images right now.

I catched two bugs, Mcindus!  :-P :-P :-P

On the one hand, some characters aren't replaced (I promise I'll upload a screenshot as soon as I can). This gives a weird sensation because you have some letters very defined (modded ones) and others blurry (the old, non replaced ones)

On the other hand, and I'm not sure that it's SeeD related but I'll put it here, when you read a magazine (don't know their english names, but you know, the ones you need for learning Zell's limits, for example) you'll only see the text, but not the background image.

I'll keep reporting things I see if you like :D

Edit: Remember I'm using Spanish version :-P

Screenshot as promised! You see some letters (most of them in some cases) aren't replaced?

At the moment there is a problem with the hashing algorithm that is resulting in hundreds of these issues throughout the game. My goal with the next release of Tonberry is to fix all that so there's no need to report them at the moment because they will completely change in the next version.

I should be able to port all of these changes over to Project SeeD for the original release for use with Aali's driver soon :)

I'm pretty sure the spanish version is calling different pages for different letters and textures... the issue is that there would need to be a special exception made in tonberry for each of the different languages... AND I would have to re-do a master texture page for each of the main languages.  I only have access to the English version myself... so I wouldn't even know where to look.  I'm sure it's just a .TEX file named something based on the language it's in... and the icons would probably have their own .TIM file, but this would be a beastly project.

What you say makes sense since spanish has more simbols (ñ for example) than english alphabet. However it should still replace some letters, isn't it? For example, a b for a p, or a x for an m... whatever.
But yes, in short you have to be right because it always replaces the same letters, the a, the e, the M... always the same ones.
You think I need a lot of knowledge to adapt it myself...?

Problem with non-english versions is that they all use a single 256x256px texture for the icons (icon.tex); this file is located in ff8\data\*language\menu\ while the english version uses 4 divided 256x256px "upscaled" textures in ff8\data\eng\menu\hires\. I've tried the characters/GF avatars and start screen with the french version and it works fine so I guess this icon.tex is the only unreadable SeeD Reborn texture so far for non-english versions.

Yes, since Mcindus told me he cannot support all languages (for obvious reasons) I've been investigating a little and the texture you're talking about is that one (however I don't know why is palletted with yellow):

(http://i57.tinypic.com/28r0bau.png)

BUT that confuses me. Why then it replaces certain letters? And the right ones, not another letter! I posted a screenshot in a previous post... here is it :D

(http://i62.tinypic.com/9rkuib.jpg)

I ALWAYS replaces "a" "e" "M" for example but never do it whith "S" "u"... and most of them hahaha. I editied Mcindus textures, specifically the "a" from "sysfld00_20.png" (the white fonts, and edited the a because is one of the replaced ones). Then I put it on Tonberry's textures folder and.... It works! The change is made! So it's actually using letters from that textures.

What do you guys think about this? Is it posible that the game uses some letter from a texture, and the rest from another...? There's something wrong here...

There's 2 divided textures for fonts: sysfld00 and sysfld01 (2 folders with 8 *.png files each for SeeD Reborn). It looks like the only folder working is sysfld00 because all sysfld01 letters remain untouched. Not sure about the german and italian versions but both sysfld00 and sysfld01 works fine with the french version.

Are the icon.tex files working for the french version? Do they share the English version (4 seperate quadrants)? 
If SeeD Reborn isn't working with it I wouldn't mind trying to tackle the french version, but I would need the 15 different palettes that get dumped into the debug folder in Tonberry.  If you're interested in going forward with a version in the future, you could .rar them up and send them my way and I could try to tackle it with Omzy in the future.

Only the english uses the 4 separate quadrants 256x256px icon files (iconfl00.tex, iconfl01.tex, iconfl02.tex and iconfl03.tex inside the hires folder); those files are inexistant for the other languages, instead of that the game use the single icon.tex 256x256px file in the root folder of main.fs (this file is also included in the english version but unused).

Actually, it is used for a few small things in the English version -- they're just few and far between.  iconmasterfl in my folder hierarchy is actually icon.tex - so it really shouldn't be that hard for Omzy to hash them once I create special folders for each language.

I would LOVE it if you could dump the debug information from the French version into a .rar file that I can upscale!  I already have JaMeCheHi's Spanish version put together and ready to hash while I work on upscaling it.  Lol... the sysfld01 file that he can't access literally only has ONE character that is different between the versions... it's silly :P

The problem with dumping into the debug folder is that you will be sifting through so many duplicates, your head will spin - but it's currently the only way for Omzy to know which file has to be replaced.  I put some information on the Tonberry thread about getting all of the palettes to populate while you play.  I would just have a save ready to go and do NOTHING but try to get palettes to populate - otherwise you are going to have gigs of files to sift through.

Just watched a little bit of your newest playthrough, and I must say this is looking really good.  Do you have any plans to mess with the letter spacing?

THANKS! :)

I am always looking to improve the mod, so if you see letters that are consistently too far to the left or right, then let me know! I'm always updating.  In fact.. I just updated the OP to v3.2

If you mean, change the spacing in Deling - not really unless I change the font to something interesting enough to warrant the change.  Right now, the lowercase 'w' is really pissing me off (tiny spacing!) and some of the capital letters have extra space around them.
============

NEW RELEASE! Check the Original Post! v3.2
- fixes to menu border
- minor text alignment/shading fix

Yes, since Mcindus told me he cannot support all languages (for obvious reasons) I've been investigating a little and the texture you're talking about is that one (however I don't know why is palletted with yellow):

(http://i57.tinypic.com/28r0bau.png)

BUT that confuses me. Why then it replaces certain letters? And the right ones, not another letter! I posted a screenshot in a previous post... here is it :D

(http://i62.tinypic.com/9rkuib.jpg)

I ALWAYS replaces "a" "e" "M" for example but never do it whith "S" "u"... and most of them hahaha. I editied Mcindus textures, specifically the "a" from "sysfld00_20.png" (the white fonts, and edited the a because is one of the replaced ones). Then I put it on Tonberry's textures folder and.... It works! The change is made! So it's actually using letters from that textures.

What do you guys think about this? Is it posible that the game uses some letter from a texture, and the rest from another...? There's something wrong here...

So you fixed the problem? i have the spanish version too, and the same problem.

We're still working on it. I gave Mcindus the needed textures, now is up to him and Omzy to do the rest. But now Omzy is with some stuff in real life so I think we will have to wait at least a few weeks.

I've noticed that the screenshots Mcindus put in the first post have a much smoother background than me. Did you noted that too?

Post by: JeMaCheHi on 2014-07-21 23:58:17
That happens because english version uses a hires textures, and the rest of languages use a lower res texture (actually, the texture in the post you quoted), so that icons aren't been replaced. Mcindus is working on that texture and will eventually release the spanish version, just give him time :D

I recently spoke with Omzy and it looks like we might be able to get a spanish (german and french as well) version out there in 2-3 weeks.  It's been hectic for all of us this summer - especially Omzy - and I'm just glad we've come this far as quickly as we have!

Hi! First of all, thank you so much for your work Mcindus. Keep it up!
I'm using the Spanish version and, just like the rest, some letters are changed whereas others aren't after applying the mod. However, what isn't changed at all is the menu background. It's obvious that it's received some love too in your mod, but is it an English-only change for now? How can we change it?

Cheers!

Here is a preview of the French version:

(http://www.13tomidnight.net/FF8/seedreborn/frenchsample.png)

It was the first step towards completion - being the texture with the least amount of changes.

This is the template I'm using for the other languages, so they should be easy!

All menu headers never got translated in french (but they did in Final Fantasy IX). The french words are not that different: Name=Nom, Time=Temps, Choice=Choix, Num.=Qte. (abbreviation for "Quantité"), Item=Item/Objet, Magic=Magie, Status=Statut (badly translated to "Situation" in the main menu), Help=Aide, Target=Cible, Attack=Attaque, Ability=Compétence, Wait=Attente, Elemental=Elementale, Bullet= Balle(s), Cards=Cartes, Price=Prix.

Squall's limit "Trigger" and "Hit" got translated but "Perfect" was left in english wich is quite inconsistent; personally I'm okay with the english words.

Are these universal french? or canadian french? or?  I want to make sure that these are what would be used in a real square translation.  If this is what they use in FF9, then that's a huge bonus.  It's a lot more work, but the top field really shouldn't be that difficult.

@5way: I'm aware, and I probably worded that poorly. I meant I would love to see this mod change the fact the English names pertained.

Either way I might just buy the Steam version. My wallet's not gonna like it, I've bought too many games recently. But oh well.

@LeonhartGR
I think some of them are in the Chocobo World menu (when seslecting Chocobo World next to the memory cards slots).

@Mcindus
Some of the menu headers text strokes looks darker than others (G.F., Notice, Triple, Double...)
"Command" = "Commande"
The accent mark for "Défense", "Elémentale", "Spécial" and "Durée" or remove them all (I'd prefer that way)
The "A" junction icon still; maybe using the font from the menu headers ?
"Fast/Slow" translation = "Rapide/Lent"

The darkness/lightness isn't something to worry about.  I'll be fixing all inconsistencies later.  On that note, I will keep out all accent marks from words in caps. Thanks for the extra words! I'll put them in next.

Estado is Spanish lol.  Some sprites are called up only in certain languages (like the japanese on the left - which was more of a consistency experiment than anything).

Some of those icons were really hard to make out before ;)

Spanish Version Progress:

(http://www.13tomidnight.net/FF8/seedreborn/spanishmaster.png)

I made a few changes to the translation here.... JeMaCheHi - any suggestions on re-translating?  The T. jue and T. Res seem kind of lame to me... should I make T. Jue into Duracion? and what about Time Remaining? Does any single word work or does it have to be a phrase?  Any help will be greatly appreciated!

German Version Progress:

(http://www.13tomidnight.net/FF8/seedreborn/germanmaster.png)

I'm a German noob, so can someone please help me with these translations? I wanted to be more thorough than the original game, but I may have botched it.  How does this look?? Any suggestions?

But what about the "Time" at the end of the line that means "Time Remaining"?  Could I use Juego for "Play" like they do in the English version? (or "Game" like in the German version?) Then T. Res could be Tiempo.

Does that make sense in Spanish? Or just the English translation?

"Aprieta!" is only on screen when you trigger squall's Renzokuken and have to hit the 'trigger' button several times in order to score the limit break's "Perfecto!"
The idea of it being a real "trigger" is that squall has a gunblade - and on PSX, you hit the 'trigger' button R2 (or R1, its been a long time.)

german version "WAHL" to "AUSWAHL",  "FAHIGKEIT" to "FÄHIGKEIT", "FEHL" to "VERFEHLT" if it's to long "MISS", "BESONDERE" to "SPEZIAL", "TREFFEN" to "TREFFER"  ;)

also "Nv." is also "Lv." in German, "notice" or "Bescheid"(not used outside of a sentence with the exception being legally...) is more likely "notiz" or "erkennen" I don't recall how it's used in the game but I think it was either as help or when you scan an enemy the first means "note" and the second "to notice"

I also do not remember how "Num." or "Menge" is used... if it's Number as in this is number five it would be also Num. in German if it's a number for the amount though it would be "Menge"

"HP" is also called "HP" in the German version of the game but TP should be fine since it's a transliteration "LP" as in "Life Points" would also be acceptable incidentally the same in German "Lebens Punkte"

I don't know when "bullet" or "Kugel" is used but kugel is correct but means the same as "ball" (same word in German btw.) as in a spherical object... so maybe "Munition" the german word for "ammunition".

we call items in games also "Item" as in an item you can use like a potion not for example items on a list. so I'd change "Objekt" actually back to "Item"

Fast and Slow and many others like bullet are actually in English in my dumped files (got the german disc version) make of that what you will^^
PS: the "Ausloer" was seemingly done for concern of space in the file -.- like much stuff if you get it to work "Auslöser" would be correct, though I think trigger is meant to be imperative.... which would be more like "Lös Aus!" transl. "trigger it!"

also I'd like to remark I'm royally greatful and will do my darndest to support your project so tell me if you need anything

Bitte hilf ihm! Ich habe kaum Zeit mich um Final Fantasy 8 zu kümmern.

By the way we could stay with 'Trigger' for 'Auslöser'. It has become slowly a German word. (It's a wrong translation because we are talking about the trigger of a gun and this would be an 'Abzug'.)

and yeah "Fahigkeit" was in the original files^^ it's still wrong and we were talking about the changed version of McIndus which is "Fähigkeit" which is correct IMO

"HP" is also called "HP" in the German version of the game but TP should be fine since it's a transliteration "LP" as in "Life Points" would also be acceptable incidentally the same in German "Lebens Punkte"

I don't know when "bullet" or "Kugel" is used but kugel is correct but means the same as "ball" (same word in German btw.) as in a spherical object... so maybe "Munition" the german word for "ammunition".

we call items in games also "Item" as in an item you can use like a potion not for example items on a list. so I'd change "Objekt" actually back to "Item"

Fast and Slow and many others like bullet are actually in English in my dumped files (got the german disc version) make of that what you will^^
PS: the "Ausloer" was seemingly done for concern of space in the file -.- like much stuff if you get it to work "Auslöser" would be correct, though I think trigger is meant to be imperative.... which would be more like "Lös Aus!" transl. "trigger it!"

also I'd like to remark I'm royally greatful and will do my darndest to support your project so tell me if you need anything

This was extremely helpful, thank you kabooz!  I have implemented most of the changes - Menge is actually a quantity listing, so it seems right... "Auslöser" is a direct translation, but they all seem to be.  Square was really driving home the idea that you pushed a trigger on your controller to make squall shoot his gunblade... lol.  So I think I would like to make it Abzug if that's ok with you guys? Unless Trigger is more appropriate?
But there was one thing I wanted to clarify -- TP in this case is meant as Trefferpunkte... or "Hit Points" and from what I was looking up online, it seemed more accurate.  Should I just use HP?

Bitte hilf ihm! Ich habe kaum Zeit mich um Final Fantasy 8 zu kümmern.


Also - anyone out there who is using the german version - I still need a few palettes to finish the translation, so if you are willing, PM me and we can get through Omzy's debug process together.

I'm not sure what context they are in either... I think they are status effects from the spells... so not the spell (noun) but the effect of the spell.  Would the current translation work for that?  Or would it be better just to leave it "Fast" and "Slow"?

OMFG, this thread is burning. Sorry about my absence, it's been hard days...

For me, this is a pretty amazing work, Mcindus. Really, I can't stop looking at the texture xD. I have to do some comments about. "Golpes" should not use exclamation marks (¡!), because is the result of renzokuken's hits (you know, when you finish and it say "4 hits" for example. "golpes" is "hit") If you don't quit that ¡! marks the message will be "4 ¡Golpes!" which will look very weird. Actually, it's a mistranslation, because hits means "success" in that context but it's translated as "smash"

 I also would change "Espere" for "Espera". In the original it wasn't translated, but "Espere" is like more a formalism, and "Espera" it's more coloquial.

Finally, "¡Completo!" could be changed for "Adquirida", which was the original, but this is IMO the less important of that three things.

About what necross said (substituting "aprieta" for "presiona", or changing T.Juego for Tiempo) and the mistranslation with "Golpes". I think is better to stick to the original texts, not "retranslating" the menus.

And... I think that's all, thanks again for your hard work Mcindus, I envy your skills...

EDIT: Wait a minute... what are "Rapido" and "Lento"? I didn't notice that this existed. In the original tex file they are a "+" and "-"

EDIT2: I'm stupid, I perfectly know what that symbols are u.u They are used in the preferences section, when you choose the battle speed and all that stuff. For english I think it work well the "Fast" and "Slow" words because they are little, but for Spanish, "Rapido" is a long word and I fear it will overlap with the border of the screen, and "Lento" could overlap with the text on the left

What would Golpes be then?  4 what?  4 successes? lol.  4 strikes!  maybe?  I'll drop the ! marks, but I'd like to have a better word there.

The reason I used "completo" is because in the english (and other versions) of the game, this means 'fulfilled!' meaning you've met the requirement for the ability.  Is Adquirida "acquired"?  It works, but it seems kind of loose.

I would like to fix some of the issues, but not everything.  I like Aprieta because it literally means 'press the gun trigger' correct?  I'll leave T. Jue and T. Res because it seems to be the best fit for size reasons.  Also - if 'rapido' and 'lento' don't fit, I will probably change the words to '+' and '-' again, but I like being as close as possible.  I think the reason they didn't use longer words than "fast" and "slow" is more because of the pixel/text ratio rather than the length of the word... it should have enough space unless i'm off in my grid in photoshop ;)  I very well could be, so we will find out.

Man you actually know Spanish? I'm a little surprised with your explanations!

Golpes is ok, it's only you should remove ¡! marks. It can be seen as "successful hits" "golpes con éxito" so golpes is fine.

About Adquirida/Completo, do what you feel is better. I'm a nostalgic and I think it should be better like it was in the original. The both should work fine.

And don't forget to change "Espere" for "Espera"! :D

By the way... Why did you use the word "Estado" in all the translations? Is an error?

Mcindus, JeMaCheHi, what about changing "golpes" for "impactos"? Since you're triggering the gun in the blade, that makes sense. Also, could you elaborate on the "completo" word? What are you referring to when you say "you've met the requirements"?

As for the "rapido" "lento", I'd leave the "+" "-" symbols, or add an accent in "rápido".

As for the "rapido" "lento", I'd leave the "+" "-" symbols, or add an accent in "rápido".

I'd really leave golpes since golpes and impactos have practically the same meaning, and golpes is the original. As I told MCindus before, I interpret Golpes as "golpes con exito" or "golpes con disparo", you know. If we had to stop in every mistranslation, we'd have to change a lot of things xD

About "Completo" he was referring to when you complete a GF hability (Guardian Force, another mistranslation in spanish xD). When you select an ability, you can see how much PH you need to complete it, and when you complete it, it appears "Adquirida". In english appears "Completo" and MCindus argued that it is because you met the requisites (the PH needed) to complete the Ability. We could spend hours and hours discussing that, because it's all about points of view xD I think you actually acquire the ability, not complete it. Well, it's hard to explain and I'd do a lot better in Spanish xD

@Mcindus: Man, I'm working in that pallette but I cannot find the way to get it. I'll try doing the Zell's special moves (don't know their english names) and see if it works or something...

EDIT: Ooops sorry Leonhart didn't see your message. That's an interesting thing indeed... Anyway, why do Mcindus include it in all languages textures?

@Jemachehi:  I'm glad that we're having thIs discussion.  It brought up a lot of really great points.   I will go with all of the changes... and switch completo to adquirado.  It seems like Spanish was translated really well whereas German and French had some missing bits.  I really side with you that nostalgia matters in a huge way and want to keep things comfortable and familiar.  Thanks so much for all your input!! 
Also- Estado is in all versions so I just kept it for consistency. Same reason I included the Japanese.  :)  I actually think the Spanish and french versions are closer to the original anyway.  Man, id love to upscale the japanese version...

It's "adquirida". (It ends with "a" because in Spanish "a" is feminine and ability is a feminine noun.

Yeah, nostalgia is a BIG point here hahaha. And yes, Spanish translators did a good job with FF8. They were pretty creative in some aspects like magics. In english you have Fire Firara and Firaga. We have Piro, Piro+ and Piro++. However, they took some liberties when translating names. For example, in the whole world we have "Ultima", but in Spain they decided to translate it as "Artema" because of the japanese pronounciation I guess. Thus, "Ultimecia" is called "Artemisa". The "Ragnarok" here is called "Lagunamov"(this could give us conversation for a whole thread xD). I think they translated the game directly from the japanese version... Very interesting all that translation curiosities. We should even open a thread to talk about this hahahaha.

Ooops... sorry for the offtopic n.nU I'm having a long long insomnia night hahaha.

Getting back to the topic: I cannot found what you told me, Mcindus. Maybe I'm searching for the wrong image? I don't know what I'm missing...

the german version is actually translated really well (text wise), I think most of the not translated expressions like "fast" and "slow" instead of "schnell" and "langsam" were because of space constraints in the palette files.
never played the Japanese version, so I have no idea what quality the translation has but FFIX and FFX were great to an interesting length, they re-translated the Japanese version to be closer to it in German I think XD

It's due to memory issues. The problem has nothing to do with this mod but with Tonberry. Check Tonberry thread to look for solutions.u

@Mcindus: Man how is the translation going? I'd like to tell you guys I'll be (and have been) pretty busy now and won't come here so frequently as before, but you can mail me if you need something. This is BIG guys, we'll experience the smoothest Final Fantasy VIII in all history!

It isn't like the italian translation gets messed up, the translation is fine. It's the textures, they don't get replaced so I still have the old menù textures...

Btw, it seems that the save files don't bother if you switch between italian and english translation, so I will play in english until there is a fix and then I will switch again in italian.  8)

Had to post here.

I found this site thanks to Mcindus' youtube videos showing off the fantastic mods for ff 8.
Since installing Seed Reborn, Project Eden and Tripod (along with the awesome roses and wine audio mod) i have started enjoying FF 8 all over again.

Just want to say a huge thanks to those that mod this game as a LOT of modding attention goes towards FF 7, dont get me wrong i love 7 too but 8 does tend to get left out in comparison.

This is officially one of my new fav sites so thanks again and please keep doing what youre doing!!

Awesome mod! Just one thing,  I have noticed that there are xbox controller buttons in the images but they are not loading in the game,  other parts are loading but not those,  is there a way to turn them off or on? Do I need to edit an ini?

Hello! I've been a lurker for a while on this forum, but I wanted to say that if you ever need someone to test the french version, I'm here ^^
Congrats for all that awesome work! :)

f*ck... sorry about my absence this long time... I've let you down with testing but it happened really hard things in RL... I'm completely shattered just now.
What files do I need to test it? I've looked in the main post but didn't found anything.

It's okay - life has happened to me too, but it hasn't been so bad - just difficult.  I've been slowly chiseling away at these translations (the palettes are the real time consuming part) and Omzy has also been very busy, so the Translation Project has been idling for a while.  I just got some really great news in a PM, though - so now I have to kick some ass because things might be coming right around the corner!  You may be just in time, JeMaCheHi.

Hello everyone,
I've already contacted Omzy and Mcindus for this. I'm generating the hash codes and textures for the icons right now. I've already completed the french version and need the other languages original icon textures. All i need from you is the content of the "debug" folder in tonberry when you play the game.
Actually for the french version we have 1 texture with 9 variations.

Hi everyone,
To use Seed Reborn with french Final Fantasy 8, do as follows:
1)Download Tonberry and Seed reborn from the first page of this topic. Read carefully how to put the HD textures in the game.
2)The folder for the icons is :FINAL FANTASY VIII/textures/ic/
Create a new folder called "iconfr". Then inside it paste the image below and name it iconfr_15.

3)The folder for the hashmap is:FINAL FANTASY VIII/tonberry/
You have to add the below lines to hash1map in order to use the texture.

FRENCH ICON:
Code: [Select]
iconfr_15 15435301983241370623 yellow-green surrounding
iconfr_15 15905287678778407935 negative grey PS buttons soft blue soft purple red/yellow green background
iconfr_15 15507359577279298559 strong blue menu texts and loading bar dark grey soft yellow
iconfr_15 15328826926474984447 negative red
iconfr_15 15471330780260334591 red
iconfr_15 16047941066145135615 double and triple
iconfr_15 18283188282030029823 black
iconfr_15 16122886527473417215 white
iconfr_15 15977354068909358079 numbers


EDIT 2014-09-28: Here is the 1024*1024pix texture!
(http://fc03.deviantart.net/fs70/f/2014/263/f/3/iconfr_15_by_shunsquall-d7zv7q1.png)

How to use Seed Reborn with other languages ?
1)In the tonberry folder, change the "debug0" folder into "debug". Then run the game. Once the game has started, open the party menu (click on "V" on your keyboard). Navigate through some categories just to let tonberry scan the textures. Then click on ALT+TAB to switch from the game to your desktop.
2)Open the tonberry folder and switch back"debug" into "debug0". This is how you tell the program to stop scanning the textures from the game. Don't forget to do this otherwise your computer will slow down a lot!
3)In the debug0 folder there are different categories of "bugging" textures. Look inside the "nomatch" folder. You will see several strange textures. Those textures are not recognised by tonberry because they were not listed in the hashmap. Search for the icon textures. They all look alike but with color variations ( yellow, grey, red, blue, purple, white, black). There are at maximum 16 variations of the icon texture.
4) Send me them by private message.

I NEED these textures to generate the hash codes into the hash1map.

This is awesome, Shunsq - thanks for putting it together.  This will work great until an official version of SeeD Reborn is released - as there needs to be several different pallettes involved for some of the animations to work properly, etc. but I do like your Master version.  I have all of the files for all of the languages to be hashed, btw.  With the help of some people, we found most of the files to be hashed for the different languages and I had sent the files to Omzy - but he's been very busy.  I suppose at this point, I could send them to you so that you can hash them.
I'll send you a link by PM.

Hello guys. Is there any way to use Xbox 360 button icons instead of Playstation?
And to change generic and confusing button names in the game? So to have X, Y, A instead of B1, B2, B3, etc..?

For the second problem there is a simple and useful mod for Final Fantasy VII. I'd do it myself, but I'm not able.  :-\

Hi all,
I've generated the hash codes for the italian version. As you can see sometimes there is one hash code for several palettes ; that's because the grayscale is the same for several palettes. For Tonberry we use only ONE texture with all the color variations. For example there will be 1 texture for both the blue icons, the red icons, the purple icons and the yellow icons. That's why for the french version i only have 1 texture.

To XxXManuXxX and other italian users: You can already use Seed Reborn if you add the lines below in the hash1map as explained on my previous post. The only difference is that you create a folder named "iconit" instead of "iconfr". Inside this folder paste your textures named "iconit_.."

ITALIAN ICON:

For Tonberry we use only ONE texture with all the color variations. For example there will be 1 texture for both the blue icons, the red icons, the purple icons and the yellow icons. That's why for the french version i only have 1 texture.

Actually, you would need to have 4 or 5 master palette files because of how the game handles different palettes for different calls.  For example, the red gradient is pulled up for game loading and limit break meters, but the blue gradient is used in the game menu.  If you don't have at least two different palettes to call from, you never get the different palettes, and you're stuck with blue for everything.  This 'ONE' texture with all variations will also eliminate some cool animation effects that the game uses by calling different palettes in a row.  I know I went overboard by replacing all 16, but it ensures that there is nothing missing in-game.

I just finished all 16 palettes for the Spanish and French versions.  Moving on to finishing Italian and German now.

To Mcindus: Tonberry can't distinguish 2 palettes with the same grayscale.That's why i only have 1 texture for several palettes. Are you sure there may be multiple palettes for the same icons? I have to play the game a longer time to spot all those variations. Anyway if needed you can use different "master" files if they have unique hash codes.

To XxXManuXxX:
Are there other italian users with the same problem? Can you tell me what is the path to your tonberry and texture folders? Have you updated the hash1map?
IMPORTANT FOR ANY MODIFICATION OF HASH1MAP.CSV:
When you open hash1map there will be a prompt which asks you how to format the file. Choose all the columns and set them to be texts. Also set the comma to be a separator.l  If you don't do that all the hash codes will be modified with 4 zeros at their end. This is a limitation of excel( and of free equivalents).Indeed you can't write a number with more than 15  figures. If you  try to write 16 figures it will be changed to zero. The only way to prevent that is to format the data as text instead of "standard".

You won't notice a lot of the changes because you've already replaced a master file, and since you're referencing that, the game won't bother pulling up the other palettes since it has something universal to pull from.  For example, when you load the game, the loading bar should be red, not blue.  Then, in-menu, the gradient is blue, not red.  If all your loading bar gradients are blue, then you are referencing a duplicate that you shouldn't be.  I think there shouldn't be so many duplicates.  We need to ask Omzy how he did the English version, because it's "future-proof" -- meaning that it functions as a replacement of the .TIM file and will replace textures that no one knows it needs yet unless there is no upscale available, I believe.  There should be a replacement for each of the 16 files to match the hashes from what's been extracted and if it's an issue with greyscale files being too similar, the upscales can have minor difference in hue (that aren't noticeable) but should be able to be read as different palettes.

Let me PM you the different palette upscales I have so you can test them In-Game. (if that's ok with you)

This is from one of my Italian Palettes - you can use this to replace anything you see missing/wrong in Shunsq's.

Thanks, mate. Seems to be something else wrong, but it's in the game, not your fault or Shunsq.
ESTADO is spanish for italian word STATO. Maybe they didn't utilize it in the game, so left it unaltered.

PS: why are there Playstation icons if the game doesn't use it?
I'm getting mad to try how can change B1, B2...names.

Post by: Mcindus on 2014-09-23 17:59:45
I just updated the file, so you might want to re-save it.  I fixed the sizing/shadow of the word "TEMPO".
Estado and De aren't used, so they're just universally on all of the releases since the spanish version is the only one that uses those pixels.

Currently I don't know of any way to change the B1, B2 names.  If someone finds the hex code where the game is looking for them, we can then probably have the game look at these files for the buttons instead.  When that happens, I'll also make an XBOX360 button map for SeeD Reborn as a replacement - but I'm no programmer and don't know how to do it myself.

Hi Guys! I'm Italian too and i'm into the same issue. I've tried to add the italian icons fallawing shunsq's guide (created new folder called iconit within ic, pasted there the file and renamed as iconit_13, then added the lines in the hash1map.csv using the notebook) however the game can't that.

Tell me if i can help you in some way

Do the files still have .png in them?  Make sure you didn't remove the suffix.  Not that it's everything, it's just something to try.
Other people are having similar issues, but I'm not sure what to do to fix it.  These questions are really for Shunsq

The official translations will be available (hopefully!) next month, so if these arent' working for you, you can always wait for the official release.

Hello everyone,
I'm sorry for the italian users, the codes i supplied were wrong. It will be fixed  by tonight. The problem came from my version of GIMP as it destroyed the transparency values from a 32 bit bmp. So when i applied the algorithm it delivered a wrong code. I had to downgrade GIMP from 2.8.14 to 2.8.2 before it worked.


It will take me a long time to check all the hash code( german, italian, spanish) that i generated this week. So please be patient.
Thank you all.

You're awesome, Shunsq! Thanks for taking on the roll since Omzy's been so busy! 
I have testers for each Language version in mind who are the people that helped me dump the textures for the mapdata we've been using.  Let me know if you need help testing the hashcodes.

Make sure you disable the Steam overlay in "settings / in-game" to prevent these crashes.  If you've already done this, it could be an issue with the upscaled palette.  Do you have SeeD Reborn v3.2?  This was an issue in SeeD Reborn v3.alpha - but I had thought we fixed it.  It could have just been a random crash.  Make sure you also have the latest Tonberry, because Tonberry used to have memory issues.

Google Translate?  I think it missed a few words, but let me try to help. 
Shunsq posted a temporary translation for SeeD Reborn in Italian and posted code that didn't end up working.  He will fix it soon, so be patient. 
At that time, we may have a 'Beta' version for the languages (including Italian).

Tonberry should be updated in the next 1-2 months (or so, depending on life) to include all translations [Spanish, French, German, and Italian] in an official release.  Omzy is also working on fixes for the graphical glitches people are experiencing in Project Eden and Tripod, but that may take longer.

Hello Shunsq, just for information I've followed all the steps you give us for the french version but it seems I can't have it working properly ^^' (the menu looks like the pictures have been shuffled randomly :p ).
I've tried to use various csv editors just in case, without more success.

I guess I'll just wait patiently until SeeD Reborn's next version or an update from you :) (or if I found I've done something wrong, if so I'll keep you updated ^^' )

Hello everyone,
I'm working on an new program in C to generate the hashcodes for several files at a time. I just have some problem to handle 20 digits per hashcode. If there are coders there a little help would be nice.

For the italian users, it seems that the codes i first provided were OK.It was a false alert. Anyway i need more feedback from you. Is there any of you who succeeded using them?

For the french users( 5way and eukanel), do you both failed using the hashcodes i provided? It is strange because it works great for me.
Eukanel , can you make a screen capture so that i see what is being "shuffled"?

Regarding the editing of hash1map.csv, if you see a bunch of zeroes at the end of each hashcode it means that you  opened the file wrong. Again, open it with excel or any alternative(libre office works really well). Separate manually each column and format them as text. When you save keep the format as csv.

Yep, I have no zeroes after the hashcodes ^^' I double checked a lot of time with exel/libre office/ron's editor, etc :p
Here are "screenshots" with my camera: http://imgur.com/a/EcMPS , as I don't know how to take them in FF8 ^^'

Hello Enkanel,
Can you check what is the size of the replacement texture? Tonberry only works with 1024*1024 textures. I think that you downloaded the texture at the wrong size. First right click on the image and then choose "afficher l'image" ( "show the image" in english i think). Only then click on "save image as".

The problem doesn't come from the hash codes as it replaces the texture with something. It's the "something" that is not correct.

Post by: Enkanel on 2014-09-28 10:05:13
Hem hem, the source of your image is 894*894 ^^'
I've taken it from the right click thing and if I quote your post to get the link, it's the same one :P and it's 894*894 ^^'

ps: I can see the same issue with the italian version ^^

edit: I tried to resize the 894*894 to 1024*1024, it's ugly as hell but it works, so we just need the original 1024*1024 picture :)

Enkanel: You were right, the textures i uploaded weren't 1024*1024pix. My bad  ::)! I fixed the problem. Go back to page 6 to have the correct size texture!
Italian users: I got the hashcodes back in page 6. And i uploaded a 1024*1024pix texture.

Hi guys, this is a video of me playing with Seed Reborn on the FF8 italian version https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tz-n5ALrfJE
This is how i've modified the hashmap http://imgur.com/eEhoFQo
When i've opened the .csv file with Excel i didn't get any prompt to modify the colums etc.. so i don't know if that could be the problem. I've added the last 2 lines for the fonts because i thought that those could be the one missing that didn't change the numbers in battle screen, etc.. but it didn't work.

In excel you paste it in 1 cell. Then there is a little icon that appears next to the cell where you have options to paste the data. Open the "paste assistant" and do as i said ( paste as text, separate the columns manually). If you didn't see the little icon you can do as explained there:

Here's the problem i modify the colums to be texts and i set the comma as a separator, but when i go to save the file a prompt appears and it says me that it can't save the file as .csv because characteristics would go lost. If i accept to lose those characteristics it saves the file as .csv but all the hash codes get those 5 zeros added in the end, if i choose to not lose those characteristic it saves the file as .xlsx

In the menu select the columns ( they must be grey) before changing them from standard to text. It is just a technical problem. If you seek on the net you will find a solution.

In a successive try to edit the file, during the upload of the video i've succesfully avoided the prompt error that shows when i try to save the file by saving it as .xslx and then changing the file formati into .csv but it didn't worki anyway.

You've done great until 0:32 in the video. Why don't you clic on the same button as for the start of the video ? Select all the data you pasted then instead of choosing the comma as a separator choose the space.

I don't know what to say, i've done exactly like you've said now, and when i go to save the file it says that if i save it as a .csv i'll lose characteristics.
It's f*cking embarassing, i'm feeling so stupid right now <.<
EDIT: Finally i've made some progress, i've edited the .csv file using notepad and now the mod is partially working. Actually the white borders in menu and the ATB in battle are working fine, even the names of the characters are ok.
Nearly all the numbers are not changed, icons and title of elemental and status defenses aren't working either, maybe it could be a problem of the palette, i've no idea.

when you save as a csv, you are only supposed to lose things like cell width, bold, and other formatting related stuff. It should not change the actual content of cells.

I've done it!
After editing the .csv file with notepad, i've begun to change the hash codes values.
Basically i had to change all the "iconit_" that Shunsq provided us into "iconit_13" for every code.
Now the problem is the blue gradient but it's not a big trouble for now.
I hope that my experience could be useful for others italian players.

Here is the video tutorial: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F5BdB-OTXmE

English instructions:
1)Go into Final Fantasy 8 folder, open the "textures" folder that you've added when installing Tonberry and create a new folder called "iconit" inside the folder named "ic";
2)Copy the .png file that Shunsq uploaded on the forum into "iconit" folder and name it "iconit_13";
3)Open the "tonberry" folder, located in Final Fantasy 8 folder. Inside there is a file named "hash1map.csv". Open it with Notepad; *
4)Copy all the codes that Shunsq uploaded but edit them, changing all the "iconit_" numbers in 13, and adding a "," as separator between the title and the codes;
5)Save the file and the mod should work fine.

Italian instructions:
1)Nella cartella di Final Fantasy 8, apri la cartella "textures" che è stata creata lì installando Tonberry e crea una nuova cartella chiamandola "iconit" all'interno della sottocartella "ic";
2)Copia il file .png che Shunsq ha caricato sul forum nella cartella "iconit" e chiamalo "iconit_13";
3)Apri la cartella "tonberry", situata nella cartella di Final Fantasy 8. All'interno c'è un file chiamato "hash1map.csv". Aprilo con il Blocco Note. *
4)Copia tutti i codici che Shunsq ha caricato ma modificali, cambiando tutti i numeri finali di "iconit_" in 13, ed aggiungendo una "," per separare il titolo ed i codici;
5)Salva il file e la mod dovrebbe funzionare correttamente.

*The file "hash1map.csv" that i open inside "tonberry" folder is edited yet, so i show you that i modify an original copy of it that i've save on the desktop as backup.
*Il file "hash1map.csv" che apro dentro la cartella "tonberry" è già modificato, quindi vi faccio vedere come si modifica lavorando su una copia che avevo salvato sul desktop come backup.

I hope that is understandable, it's my first video tutorial, if you want me to make any changes say it without any problems.

Ok, thanks. The problem is that the Shunsq .png file is little wrong with "vibracioni" instead of correct italian "vibrazioni". Don't remember if it has other wrong parts.
Mcindus uploaded a correct version of that file, but it's all grey, without various colours like the Shunsq one.

The "vibration" texture is unused, unlike the PSX version when pausing the game it only display "pause".

Thanks Kujax, it finally works for my french version. Only thing missing was deleting spaces and adding a "," as separator between the title and the codes in the hasmap.
One palette seems to be wrong along with several gfx artifacts and a missing texture for the grey letters:

Thank you Kujax for the tutorial!
I didn't think there would be so much trouble in modifying the hash1map. Personally i prefer using a sheet editor like excel but if  it is easier to use notepad, why not?
5way: The blue/yellow texts artifacts come from the textures iconfr_15 and iconfr_21 that have the same hashcode. Omzy didn't solve the problem yet. Concerning the missing fonts copy the following line to hash1map:

sysfld01_13   18410706480546887167         big fonts white

A little explanation about Tonberry: As you may have understood there are 2 other csv called "collision"and "hash2map". The first one is a list of textures that are bugging because they share the same hashcodes. The second csv is an attempt to correct the "collision" problem, with the colliding textures having proper codes. The problem right now is that i don't know how omzy generates the hash2map codes; i will ask him when i feel the need of it. Right now you can  already play the game with HD textures even if they are all grey :-P.
But don't worry, there is a trick. Name all the lines "iconfr_15". It tells Tonberry that all the codes call iconfr_15 instead of the other textures in/ iconfr. That's why i did only one texture for several purposes ( blue loading bar, blue icons, purple icons, red "miss" and "target", golden star,etc...).

Forse mi sbaglio, ma credo non sia necessario copiare tutte quelle righe scritte da Shunsq in hash1map.csv. Se guardate bene, ci sono molti codici identici che hanno di diverso solo la parte iniziale "iconit_". Però mettendo sempre iconit_13, immagino non sia necessario copiare varie volte lo stesso codice.
Esempio:
iconit_18   15507359577279299071
iconit_19   15507359577279299071
iconit_20   15507359577279299071

Come vedete, eccetto la parte iniziale, il resto è identico. Quindi se mettiamo sempre iconit_13, il codice possiamo scriverlo solo una volta.

The "vibration" texture is unused, unlike the PSX version when pausing the game it only display "pause".

Thanks Kujax, it finally works for my french version. Only thing missing was deleting spaces and adding a "," as separator between the title and the codes in the hasmap.
One palette seems to be wrong along with several gfx artifacts and a missing texture for the grey letters:

Vibration is unused, and until someone finds the code to change the buttons to textures, we will probably never see it in-game.

The hashmap codes you have are pointing to the wrong places, 5way.  For instance, the blue palette should not be used unless your party member has a status effect.  This might be an issue with how Tonberry handles the pixel locations (shunsq's greyscale issue he was mentioning) and will be fixed for the next release of Tonberry, but according to Omzy, that might be a month or two (if we're lucky).  This might NOT be the same issue, though - because Acquis! is showing properly.

Also, thank you for pointing out the blue palette glitch -- it's just misaligned, and since I can't test myself, I'm glad we're handling this process now!  I will modify the palettes accordingly and send an update to you very soon!  The palette that is not being pulled up for the numbers is "iconfr_28".  I think that "iconfr_28" and "iconfr_24" may need to be flipped around in your hash codes.  Try that and let me know if there's an improvement.

Have you tried the sysfld_01.png hashcode change that Shunsq recommended on his post to fix the missing dark text palette?  Does it work?

Definitely looks better but now critical (yellow) and dead (red) status remains grey all the time (same during encounters).

Can this be used for italian version too?

Tranquillo, è dovuto al fatto che le utilizziamo un solo master file per le icone per ora, alla release ufficiale della mod sarà sistemato.

Engilsh: He was saying that in menu the gray colors are a little lighter than how they look in the main page screens and that there are some horizontal lines in the menu and in the atb bar. I told that it's caused by the fact that we use only 1 palette and that will be probably fixed when we'll have the official release, is it correct or did i just say anything stupid?

In order to replace the fonts you also have to insert these lines:
FRENCH/ITALIAN/GERMAN
Code: [Select]
sysfld01_13   18410706480546887167
sysfnt_13    17221747309193035775

Code: [Select]
sysfnt_13 18446744073709551615
sysfld01_13 18410706480546889215
sysfld01_14 18410706480580509183

Copy the above lines into hash1map.csv located in FINAL FANTASY VIII/tonberry/. Please follow  Kujax tutorial on page 8 to understand how to modify hash1map.csv. You can also use excel or libreoffice to open this file.
Here is the video tutorial: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F5BdB-OTXmE

English instructions:
1)Go into Final Fantasy 8 folder, open the "textures" folder that you've added when installing Tonberry and create a new folder called "iconit" inside the folder named "ic";
2)Copy the .png file that Shunsq uploaded on the forum into "iconit" folder and name it "iconit_13";
3)Open the "tonberry" folder, located in Final Fantasy 8 folder. Inside there is a file named "hash1map.csv". Open it with Notepad; *
4)Copy all the codes that Shunsq uploaded but edit them, changing all the "iconit_" numbers in 13, and adding a "," as separator between the title and the codes;
5)Save the file and the mod should work fine.

To use them, create a folder named "ic" in FINAL FANTASY VIII/textures then a subfolder named either "iconfr" for french users, "icongr" for german users, "iconsp" for spanish  users and "iconit" for italian users. Inside this folder copy the textures of your language (wait for Seed Reborn next release to have all the textures).

Temporary method to use Seed Reborn without all the textures:
At this stage the textures for all the languages are not released yet, but you can use one of the textures on page 3( for french,german and spanish) or page 7(italian) of this topic. Download it, make sure it is 1024*1024 pixels, and name it "iconfr_13","icongr_13","iconsp_13", or "iconit_13", depending on your language.Then in the hashlist above, replace all the "icon**_**" by "icon**_13". That way the program will replace all the textures with "icon**_13.png".

Nice Shunsq, thank you. The codes are exactly the same for the italian version so for us there's no need to change them.
Now, let's hope that Mcindus won't have troubles for the new palettes.
Hype!

NICE!  Thanks for all your hard work, Shunsq!  This is huge - and now we can test all of the languages!  I'm still working on German and Italian palettes (life is crazy at the moment!) but Spanish is ready to test!  French is currently being tested (and modified) for a temporary release!

Omzy still has some issues to fix with Tonberry, but until then, these palettes should work as a great temporary SeeD Reborn pack.  Some colors won't change properly (like when you lose health or get a status effect) but we're working on it!  Until then, enjoy this update!

Spanish testers, please send me an email at [email protected] so that I can set you up with the palettes for testing!

I can't remember exactly, but doesn't the decoy President (the one Timber made) have his lines appear as greyed out? Maybe that's interfered with the actual transparency of the box itself?

Thank you for the feedback 5way!
I've tested it myself today and i saw the same errors as you. The fact that the background is not replaced cames from my program. I fixed it and updated the hash1map on this page. In fact the other languages had the same issue, even if nobody noticed it  ::)
The grey icons are due to hash codes "collisions", when two palettes have the same code.

Thanks, menu gradients are now working fine.
I forgot about this additional issue: there's no color difference (besides of the "-") whether stats junctions are available or not.

(http://image.noelshack.com/fichiers/2014/41/1413049118-11.png)


Also the "Double" and "Triple" palette needs to be added (I've already noticed Mcindus about it).

I love the progress!  I'm working on the new palette that you found but it has to go in all of the translations so I might want to release this version without that palette.  I will make one for you to test ASAP.  There are bound to be more missing palettes! keep a look out!) Also - the borders of your gradient boxes are too light and are pulling from the wrong palette.  Probably another issue with hash collisions that Shunsq mentioned.  I have a feeling that the Magic Junction window stats are also having this same issue.  The original Tonberry had this issue with the different text colors until Omzy coded them properly.

This is ultimately something that Omzy or someone who is good at programming (because Omzy released the Tonberry Source) has to modify in the .dll's of Tonberry.  If someone can compare how Tonberry handles the English version of the hashes via the .dll and compare it to how they are currently being handled, we may find our solution.  I am no programmer - just a problem solver.  If we have anyone out there who could help move this along, please let us know!

Hello Cloud LeonHart,
Thank you for your help.
For the text problem add this line to hash1map.csv:
sysfld01_13   18410706480546887167         big fonts white

I already mentionned it in page 8.

For the background which is not replaced, there was the same problem with french icons. I updated the hashcodes for all languages yesterday. Have you used these new codes ?
If you can't write/read english well, you can use google translate or reverso.

Hello Shunsq
If I have used codes from page 8 but still the same thing, happening also I added the code that I've put in your message and remains the same.

What is your texture name and in which folder is it ?
It should be FINAL FANTASY VIII/textures/ic/iconsp/iconsp_13.png

And what about the fonts ? Are they still blurry ?
Could you send me the content of your debug folder ? If you don't know what i mean read the following (page 6):


How to use Seed Reborn with other languages ?
1)In the tonberry folder, change the "debug0" folder into "debug". Then run the game. Once the game has started, open the party menu (click on "V" on your keyboard). Navigate through some categories just to let tonberry scan the textures. Then click on ALT+TAB to switch from the game to your desktop.
2)Open the tonberry folder and switch back"debug" into "debug0". This is how you tell the program to stop scanning the textures from the game. Don't forget to do this otherwise your computer will slow down a lot!
3)In the debug0 folder there are different categories of "bugging" textures. Look inside the "nomatch" folder. You will see several strange textures. Those textures are not recognised by tonberry because they were not listed in the hashmap. Search for the icon textures. They all look alike but with color variations ( yellow, grey, red, blue, purple, white, black). There are at maximum 16 variations of the icon texture.
4) Send me them by private message.

I NEED these textures to generate the hash codes into the hash1map.

Thanks for dealing with all this Shunsq.

I've spotted game crashes when opening Combat King magazines (vol. 2-5) and all Weapons Monthly magazines, I believe it has to do with the D-pad arrows textures.

CloudLeonHart and all spanish users,
Due to a simple "ñ"  the sysfld01 and sysfnt hashcodes are different from english/french/italian version :P
Please add the following codes to hash1map.csv:
Code: [Select]
sysfnt_13 18446744073709551615
sysfld01_13 18410706480546889215

Regarding the background i can't figure out why it is not replaced  :?.

Hello Rynoa,
In your textures folder you have only 1 texture named iconfr_15. First, in your hash1map.csv erase all the unnecessary "iconfr_15" after the "iconfr_28"( those codes are obsolete). Then rename all the remaining "iconfr_XX" into "iconfr_15".
 
What's the meaning of all that ? Tonberry scans the textures loaded on screen and associates a hashcode to each one. Then it reads hash1map.csv to check if the code is listed. If the code is found, it searches in the textures folder the texture to use. I told you to rename all the "iconfr_XX" into "iconfr_15" so that all the hashcodes refer to  "iconfr_15" located in your textures folder.

PS: don't send thumbnails, i can't see anything on it.

The two models shown are 2 different levels of detail ( each one as specific mesh, UV coordinates and texture).

To use this texture mod, download the following file:
https://www.dropbox.com/s/9ybqfgnxh91bqex/sq.zip?dl=0 (https://www.dropbox.com/s/9ybqfgnxh91bqex/sq.zip?dl=0)

In Tonberry folder, change "objfile.csv" to "objmap.csv". I think Omzy ( creator of Tonberry mod) did a mistake when creating this file. In objmap.csv add the following lines:
Code: [Select]
sql_13,2126409215

sqpant_13,4214484565
sqpant_13,4214353493
sqhead_13,836294143

In tonberry texture folder,  paste the extracted "sq" folder. You'll have 3 folders named sql/ , sqpant/ and sqhead/. Each one contains only 1 texture.

MCINDUS,

This MOD is AWESOME!!!

Goodbye ugly washed out textures, hello clear clean lines and vibrant colors!
Thanks for cleaning up the GUI, this by far improves the overall appearance SOOO Much!

It's like playing it for the first time again!

If only Squaresoft were still around and making games like they used to, in the before time, the long long ago. The days before Enix took over and making a quick buck became more important than making a masterpiece.

Thanks Mcindus, and also thanks to the other modders for breathing new life into my favorite games!

How can I swap the PC button prompts, B1 B2, etc.. to the PSX style ones, Circle Square, L1, R1 etc...

I see from the screenshots the PSX button textures exist, wondering how to replace or swap them in game.

Honestly, I think the black font looks ugly on that background. Should be better a dark blue font, or the default font that Square Enix used.

I hope the project isn't dead. Last post from McIndus is from a long time ago.

How did you get yellow fonts working? Looks like all palettes are showing correctly for you.

I just redrew the original. no longer does anything. I can upload my work in PSD.
Latin letters need to align
P.S.
I no good speak English, so I use a translator

That's what I was trying to resolve with using Berrymapper... Those are the english hashmaps; the yellow (critical), grey (K.O.) and blue (status) textures works great with the english version (same during encounters).

That's what I was trying to resolve with using Berrymapper... Those are the english hashmaps; the yellow (critical), grey (K.O.) and blue (status) textures works great with the english version (same during encounters).

But you got it working? I'm also having some unalignment issues in battles and menus:

(http://i.imgur.com/CKdZAZc.png?1)
(http://i.imgur.com/FeONoI2.png?1)
(http://i.imgur.com/jvKldTV.png?1)

As you can see, all the bars (loading bars in battle, or loading savegames) are splitted because Tonberry seemb to misalign the little segments which composes the bars. Also, most labels in menus are a little displaced, always in the same proportion, a little to the left, an a little to the top. Also, battle numbers for damage and restoration are displaced a little upwards. The color for character's HUD doesn't change. Never. However, the restoration damage is showed correctly, in green color. Mcindus, I sent you an MP aeons ago, please give me a touch when you're available again, it seems you're a lot busy this last month.

Maybe we should tell omzy about this hashing problem with different colour palletes. Maybe he could calculate the hash using some color information or whatever, I don't even know how the hell he gets the hash.

And a little offtopic, please: Some of you guys are using an English version and a local version of FF8 too. Is there anyway to have the English version if I got the spanish one in Steam? I'd like to start sharing some of my findings but can't since most of you here are using the English version. (offtopic end)

Nice work rufoos but why didn't you compressed the edited the files when importing to Deling? Your *.fs files are unnecessary bigger now.

JeMaCheHi, You can use the english ff8.exe and the spanish data files with some tweaks but the *.exe contains some english text like ennemies data, triple triad text, draw points text etc. It'll required some work to translate it.

In the french version only the character's name display the correct color (for critical, K.O. and elemental status) and the numbers of HP during battles always stays white, definitely a hasmap issue. I'm waiting for Mcindus SeeD Reborn update, hopefully the colors will be restored.

As for the alignment artefacts it is due to the *.png textures which needs to be "pixel perfect": I've upscaled the original textures @4x using nearest-neighbor interpolation and everything looks perfect so you must edit the *.png textures having the original in the background for reference.

Also, the green "restore damage" is really weird because there's no *.png texture for it... Somehow the game automatically converts the default white damage numbers *.png texture to green.

I should post this in Omzy's thread but here it goes:
Unlike FFVII, there's only one kind of font texture: normal display is during battles menus (100% wide) but in the main menu the game will shrink everything to fit the smaller space (narrow) problem is that it seems to be nearest-neighbor interpolation and even with @4x textures it looks awful... Is there a way for Tonberry to use bilinear interpolation ?

compressed - I forgot about it
"Also, the green "restore damage"" - need edit iconflmaster_13.png and 15 too
I do not know how it all hashed. I would like to know how.

Translate? But I want to use the full english version. If I use the english exe but spanish files, you guys won't be able to test the mods I do to field.fs or battle.fs for example.

So I have to edit them all by hand? I thought there was a hashing problem too. I'll try it and tell you then. About bilinear interpolation with tonberry... why don't you take a look at its source code?

Yes, you have to edit all *.png files by hand in any image editing software for all alignment issues... for example when adding a smooth stroke sometimes you won't be abble to see the objet going outside of his box, use a strong green or pink background to verify along with the @4x upscaled original texture as a reference; the only hasmap problems are the missing/incorrect palletes. Tonberry is working just fine.

I have to reallocate every single element in the texture? For example reallocate each number individually. Because if that's the case... didn't work for me. Or maybe I'm stupid, which is another posibility xD

The english version of ff8 has a different file structure than the other versions(french,italian,german,spanish).In the english version you have iconfl00/01/02/03.tex and iconflmaster.tex, whereas in the other versions you only have icon.tex.For the english version Omzy implemented a specific algorithm in Tonberry that distinguish the palettes even if they have the same hashcodes :  it takes one specific pixel from iconfl(or iconflmaster), makes the product of its RGB values and determiines from which palette it comes . It's not yet implemented for other ff8 versions. If i succeed compiling tonberry in codeblocks i could modify tonberry, but it's not an easy task.

Good news fellow non-english players: you can use all the palettes with a trick i've just found!
1)Rename all your textures "iconflmaster_XX.png"( with XX varying from 13 to 28) instead of "iconfr/it/ge/sp_13.png".
2)In hash1map.csv rename the textures only as "iconflmaster_13.png"

Why does it works?
Indeed there is a specific code Omzy wrote only for iconflmaster to see the differences between the palettes that may have the same hashcodes. But since iconflmaster.tex is the equivalent of icon.tex for foreign versions then the algorithm works also on icon.tex. The trick is that it reads the value of color at the center of the cross symbol ( pixel X=206, Y=103).
I've tried it and it works like a charm! Anyway there are still problems of texture misalignement. Mcindus might correct this.

NOTE: For unknown reasons the menu crashes FF8 when you try to configure Zell's limitbreaks. It seems to come from the button palettes ( iconflmaster_17).

O_O OMFG.   Thank you Shunsq!!! I will put out FULL versions of the translations very soon! I'm working on fixing the alignment for all translations and they should be available to the community as a big fat holiday present.

This is huge news for the translations :)

Zells limit break glitch is a serious one, but one thing at a time... first I will pump out more translations.

Also - it looks like in Tonberry vs. Aali's driver - that in Aali's driver, any layer that isn't 100% opaque is ignored.  In Tonberry, anything that isn't 100% Transparent shows up as 100% Opaque.  I have to go through and fix this -- which is what 5way has been pointing out.  I like your idea of a bright green/pink background to contrast for a fix. (like I have for the magazine item pictures).

I will be working with Shunsq and Omzy to update Tonberry with the new hashings for this project -- and hopefully the Squall re-texture if the other characters have been hashed in time.

Mcindus, have you noticed the distorted (narrow) font and icons in the main menu as well?

The border of your grey gradient is pulling from the wrong palette... and the blue and the white have reverted back to their old palettes.  maybe if you try to go back to the original hash codes that I sent you (just forwarded from Shunsq), this might revert back to what the game is intending to do without the manual fixes possibly interfering?

EDIT** use the updated iconflmaster_13,xxxxx - I just think that the two that I had you switch before are in the wrong order now.

Hmmm... now you talk about grey gradient... I noticed that in spanish version(or at least in mine) it's not being replaced correctly (look at the screenshots in my previous posts in this page).

On everything else... congratulations guys, you made it again. I really like your finding, Shunsq. However... what happens with the spanish "ñ" char....?

I think I'm not expressing clearly or maybe I don't understood you. You say we should replace our files with the orig Ok, I didn't understood you, while writing I noticed how stupid was my assumption xD I though we had to replace the translated files with the english ones (and that's why I asked "what happens with ñ"), but what you say is to RENAME the translated files. Now everything takes more sense hahahaha.

After i shrinked it to 1024*1024 pixels there was no crashing anymore. Just one thing important: In hash1map.csv leave it as iconflmaster_17 and not iconflmaster_13.

Oh, sorry about this guys but... I forgot to mention that mine didn't crash at zell limit's screen after changing to iconflmaster n.n" However, mine is also twice bigger than it should(2048x2048).
I have also all hashes as iconflmaster_13, but I can change it to iconflmaster17 for that one if you want to test anything...

Hey McIndus! Let me know when you start working on the Greek version so as we will revise some things. About ELEMENTAL use the phrase ΣΤΟΙΧΕΙΟΥ ΦΥΣΗΣ. Also can you correct the VII to VIII on my fonts? Thanks!

I still need to finish your icon palettes - life has just been busy!

These are the places you need to edit.  What I highlighted are the two locations with the other side of the "VIII"
If you still need me to fix it, you can send me the white palette of your sysfld00 and sysfld01 files.

I tried the german version a little bit, but i got an exception and the game crashes :'(.
Something like "Unknown exception occured".

It happened two times:
1. in a battle (can not say what exactly happened before the exception)
2. when i got Seed Gil and the text on the bottom pops up

The second situation let me think that SeedReborn is the problem.
I have to test if the german version cause the problem.
I try the english version tomorrow and look if the same exception occures.

Turn off the steam overlay in Steam/Settings/In-Game/ -- this should solve your problem.

Sorry for my bad english.

I had this idea a while ago -- is there any point in the game in which it uses green text for anything other than the selection buttons? because if so, then when that text pops up, it will just be a jumble of those PSX symbols... so this might be a problem at some point in the future....
However, I'm going to take your idea one step further and do the English version of the PSX controls and do the xbox 360 controls as well.

Thanks for the great work!

Hey Mcindus, I've had this small issue for a while now and thought I'd bring it up. There are random points in the game where certain parts of your mod(text, text window, etc.) reverts back to the original. I'm just wondering if this due to it needing more codes or if other codes might be interfering with it. Sometimes it happens, sometimes it doesn't. It isn't really all that big. Just thought I'd ask.

I'm just wondering if this due to it needing more codes or if other codes might be interfering with it. Sometimes it happens, sometimes it doesn't. It isn't really all that big. Just thought I'd ask.

These may be issues where there isn't a hashcode present and it's reverting to the old version.  Also - it may actually be due to a collision with the hashcodes - and if that's the case, only a better hashing system can solve the problem.  This happens to me when too many textures load, or there's an exception from Tonberry that's read before it can load the other textures involved.  I have fixed a bit of the issues by moving codes around, but if it's not a consistent error, then it's most likely an error in hashing.

Main post updated with Tonberry v1.6 hashmap file!

Hey there !

First of all, thanks for all the mods, I can't imagine how much time you've put into this. I just installed every mod you suggested in the Steam guide with Tonberry 1.6 enhanced (Seed reborn, Project Eden, Tripod, Horizonpack and Button controller).
Got a small problem though, some lines (from Steam) disappeared, the ones that were added to the Steam version : the "Do you wanna quit ? Yes - No" one, the commands that appear in a table just before the title screen, ... I just see the frames ! The Squaresoft logo is also all buggy. Eveything else in the ingame menus look fine at the moment.
I'm playing on the English version, but it was the French version at first ... Not sure it is related or not. Changed the version through the Steam properties before installing the mods.

Anyway, thanks for everything !

EDIT : Just tried putting the game back to French and add the French Language Pack in Seed Reborn. Still got the exact same issues (lines missing, squaresoft logo buggy).

Try putting 'collisions.csv' and hash2map.csv from Tonberry v1.5 in:

Wow. It worked. Thanks so much, dude ! What's the explanation to this ?  :o Is there anything else to move ?
Anyway, you seriously rock. Seriously.

EDIT : BTW, since I'm at it, just a lil' question : I noticed the textures my world map are far less detailed compared to your screenshots in the Horizonpack thread. It seems like it is the same models, but with a far worse resolution. Not sure if I can change anything about that ?

glad it worked!  actually - the horizonpack textures are mostly 'upscales' of the original. Balamb is the only full replacement, currently.  I will have two versions in the future... one Vanilla 'upscale' version, and one completed 'replacement pack' version.  But until then, we get a taste of both.

hey guys , I'm working on a translation project of the client English in Italian.  I'm doing it to make compatible the seed reborn and other mods that do not work in the Italian version . I'm doing it for modders that at least do not have to do the Italian version which is more complicated to do. here are some screen.

Looks fantastic at 1600 X 1024 or bigger

but at any size smaller, artifacts begin to appear. :/

It looks exactly the same at any size smaller then 1600 X 1024, I tried several resolutions from 720 X 480 all the way to 1440 X 900. I'd prefer not to have the game take up my entire screen. Is there anything I can do?

When I click download I get a file called Setup_ODM.exe. Is this correct? I thought this was manual install.

You should get a .RAR file. That setup file is probably from the adfly link. Wait for the counter to hit zero and then click the "Skip Ad" on the top right corner of browser and the real file should start downloading. If issues persist, I'd recommend using an ad blocker.

ai ja nao tem o que ser feito, ja que é uma traduçao nao oficial. acaba por ficar nao condizente com qualquer mudança no jogo. e pelo o que sei, a traduçao nao teve nenhum update a anos ne ?
alias, tenta deixar o jogo em widescreen e letterbox. ve se tem alteraçao entre esticar a tela ou deixar as barras pretas lado a lado. tambem faz teste de resoluçao. tentar usar os varios patchs de resoluçao que existe, o GEDOSATO tambem
maldita square enix, nem pra traduzir serve. vamo ver no ff 7 remake e no 15 quando sabe la deus sair no pc


Is there a version of the game in Portuguese?

nope, only unofficial patch translation
and it is not updated since a long time.(most likely abandoned) that is the very cause of the problems

Realmente Israel...eu tinha chegado a essa conclusão.

Mas falando sobre o GeDoSaTo...estranho que eu instalei ele conforme as instruções do pessoal, mas não desbloqueou as outras resoluções, a maior ficou [email protected], veja:

Porém, se mantenho o GeDoSaTo em execução o jogo abre mas fica travado em tela preta. Se fecho o GeDoSaTo o jogo roda porém em 640x480(em janela).
Enfim, te agradeço pela ajuda, quando você começar a jogar o FFVIII e estiver funcionando tudo beleza você me orienta!  :wink:

Valew mesmo! 8)

Eu já estou achando o trabalho do pessoal fantástico!
Mas de fato sinto falta de um patch de unificação, tipo se o pessoal fizesse um .rar já com todas atualizações correntes na página inicial seria uma boa.
Creio que ainda vamos ter muitos mods fragmentados por causa que são várias pessoas e cada uma implementando em projeto diferente.

Israel, descobri o problema da resolução!
Para mim foi apenas desmarcar a opção: Keep Aspect Ratio nas opções Settings

Então, funcionou!

pensei que o gedosato anulava o launcher oficial igual o 7heaven mod faz. eu prefiro uma tela achatada do que aquelas barras pretas lado a lado. pra ver animes e filmes antigos eu deixo as barras pretas, mas jogos nao da

Hi, I had a go at using your mod using the tonberry enhanced 2.04. I managed to get part of the mod working, with the menu's looking very nice (thanks for that) but the character faces don't seem to have changed. I copied all of the texture files into the texture folder, and I added the seed reborn thing into the tonberry hasmap folder.

is this some kind of bug with tonberry or have I done something wrong?

You actually need to have Rebirth Flame by Fated Courage for the better character models :)  SeeD Reborn is only for the text.  You will also need: Tripod (card game upscale), ProjectEden (field background upscale), HorizonPack (worldmap upscale), Lunar Cry (enemy upscale), and the NEW Apocalypse (Bosses upscale).  I also recommend RaW, the FF8 music mod.

Hey there, I've found a little texture problem in the junction section for the characters. I'm using the german menu overhaul http://1drv.ms/14jREt7 (http://1drv.ms/14jREt7) from norwin.

All textures working fine, there is just a problem with two icons. In the picture from the added link below, you can see that two icons for ST-J (ZU-K) got some extra pixels. I've tried to change iconflmaster_15.png, but this file seems to be fine...even iconflmaster_13.png. And I don't know how to fix this  :/

First of big thanks Mr. Mcindus for all the awesome FF8 mods :D !!

i followed the tutorial , installed the french language pack & i'm using toneberry 2.04 enhanced , i've copied the hash1map.csv to directory "Final Fantasy VIII/toneberry/hashmap" without changing anything in the csv file.

Therefore i have an issue with font on the french menus and subtitles of the game that has some letters  that are modded but some are not :/  i kept deleting everything redoing the same steps again but nothing seems to change

here's some images to show how it looks in the game subtitles and menus missing font mods :

(http://i.imgur.com/xAfAstf.jpg)
(http://i.imgur.com/C4F8Wzk.jpg)

Edit : i found the issue comes from me i forgot to put the French toneberry 1.6 csv file "SeeDReborn_FR_hm.csv" in "Final Fantasy VIII\tonberry\hashmap"  sadly it wasn't mentionned in the steps for installing the language pack.
should add this step before PLAY put the appropriate Tonberry v1.6 Hashmap File for the language pack you choosed in \tonberry\hashmap :-D
Thanks again Mcindus for this awesome mod, i'll check out the other graphics mods :)

Mod looks great, I have a question tho is it possible to allow menu's and battle menu's to show more than 9999 hp?  So far only menu that is capable of showing it is the status menu.  All other menu's just cut off the first number so 12,500 hp shows 2500.  I know it was done in ff7 but modding for that game has advanced really far.

First of all i'd like to say THANK YOU for the great work on this and other mods.

Now, can i ask what's the status for the italian version of this? Would it be possible to have at least an "incomplete/early" version?
ie, a version containing only the polished menù fonts, icons, characters/GFs avatars, battle text etc without the actual polish of all the dialogues (i suppose that's the part that is taking this much time).

But ofc i have no idea how the mod truly work, so i don't know if it's even possible to make this kind of "partial" mod (working with no problems). Just an idea.

Anyway, looking forward for news on this. And yet again, thank you for the awesome work.

I want to finish this right away.  If anyone out there could help me with the Italian mod, I would greatly appreciate it.  I need someone to follow a very specific set of instructions for me and gather the files needed, but I need someone who's using the Italian version.

Also - I just put the finishing touches on a SeeDReborn v3.5 that should be available by tonight!
Just have a bit of last minute testing to do...

Updated the main post with a new updated SeeD Reborn!!! (http://forums.qhimm.com/index.php?topic=15320.0)

Version 3.5 includes:
New text, boatloads of fixes, some new text effects, Double/Triple from Cerberus fixed, as well as a new skull icon for character 'death' and new 'low health' text.


So - for my birthday and for New Years, I give THIS to you! :D

Happy New Year, everyone!

This mod comes with the 'classic' version of the Xbox360 controller mod - look in the 'sy' folders for the proper files.  In the next week or two, I'll update the rest of the controller mods!

I'm not sure if i like these portraits over the originals. But hey, it's good to have options. So i'll leave these here for anyone who wants to use them (i haven't touched Seifer cause i like the original).
If you want to use these, you need to have SeeD Reborn. Grab and drop the 2 pictures from down here into \textures\fa\  folders (face_b00 and face_b01) and rename the pictures accordingly.

I understand that this is SeeDReborn dependent, but so are my controller button mods -- you really should make a release thread for this, considering it's your own mod.  :)  If you want to release it without making it dependent on seedreborn, make a .txt file, call it 'Avatars3D_hm.csv' or something like that (just make sure you have _hm.csv as the end of the file name) and place these codes in the hashmap:

face_b00_13,12373840744287225834
face_b01_13,11207991935878756332

Then name the files properly, make your own 'fa' folder, and then face_b00 and face_b01 folders and place the files.

Welcome to the modding community!

Beautiful thank you for 3.5 McIndus, and all your hard work! The New "Target" is beautiful.

One issue, I am noticing that the quotations are backwards for dialogue. The end quotation marks are at the beginning and the beginning kind are at the end, just something small I noticed so far.

Aw crap.  Thanks for the find!!  I'll fix this by the weekend - just waiting to see if anyone finds any more glitches.

Sorry - the other languages are only able to use 3.2 right now.  I will be updating the mods in the near future!

Hi Mcindus, I really love the mod, and was hoping that I could also get the English fonts/text style which I believe you had in your 3.2 version, which where smoothed and more closely resembled the original fonts. Do you have a link to the earlier sysfld00 / sysfld01 PNGs that used the previous font? I've searched quite a bit and haven't been able to track them down...

Alternatively, if you can post the download for the 3.2 version of your mod, that would also do the trick. If you can help, I'd really appreciate it!

I've updated the main post with the link to the old version (3.2) for those of you who want it!  If you only want the old fonts, but the new icons - just copy the sysfld00 / sysfld01 folders from /textures/sy/ - from the old version into the new one and replace the files!

Hi !

I am new, your mods are very good, it changes life ^^
I can not run this mod, I do not know which files to merge and replace.
I tried to put the folders "fa, gf, ic, ma, st & sy" in textures but it does not work  :(
An idea ?

Thank you !

For every mod, you need to put the hashmap file (ends in .csv) into tonberry/hashmaps/  - for example, seed reborn has a file SeeDReborn_hm.csv that needs to go in that hashmap folder for the mod to work.  It's available on the original post - and is also available on the Tonberry Master Mods List.

I've been too busy to work on it directly, but I've got Nedus working behind the scenes on the Italian release of SeeDReborn.  With my direction, he's been doing a great job - but we have a couple of bugs to work out.

I've actually got all of the starting intro images with hashcodes, etc. and 'upscaled' a few of the replacements.  It's impossible to replace the intro 'text' and the square logo with the current version of tonberry, but I can send the intro files to you if you like, as I don't have time to work with them right now.

Yup, we're working on it :)
We might release some sort of "incomplete version" sooner or later, but that is for Mcindus to decide.
And guys, don't get tricked by Mcindus' nice words; he is the one doing a great job, and all the "black-magic-side" of the modding. Not me. I'm just a random monkey trying to land a hand >.<

If you want to help, that's fine by me.
For all i know, the problem we stumbled upon may be caused by some mistake/s i made during various tests processes. Maybe you can find what's the problem.

So, if Mcindus has nothing against it, i have nothing against you joining the project.

The more, the merrier!  Community projects are always better. 

If this isn't clear about me:  I want everyone to dig in to my mods and make them better.  These are the community's mods.  With  my mods as a template, people should be able to just replace my art with thier own - and since Omzy, FatedCourage, Shunsq, and I have already paved the hashmap road, the sky is the limit!

My only request: If you're working on tonberry mods, let the community know!  We need people working together on projects to make sure these mods are completed!

Feel free to include it Mcindus although I had a really bad surprise when creating the final files since I wrongly choose the source so I had to vertically stretch the art (the flare should be round), so maybe I'll update it later. :-D

Edit: So yeah, it actually was the game that vertically stretch the textures using nearest-neighbor interpolation (wich explains the poor display, same for the in-game menu's font compared to field dialogue) so I had to stretch the source. Download v2 here (https://ufile.io/76iho) or here (https://www.sendspace.com/file/6xmn9n).

Yes - SeeDReborn v3.2-v3.5 use the same hashmaps and should be used with the latest version of Tonberry :)

In the next few weeks, this mod will get the following work:

1.  Italian Release! (v3.5) - I may release a v3.2, but at a later date
2.  English v3.21 - Glitch/Alignment fixes (Clean-up)
3.  Foreign Language Packs v3.21 - Glitch/Alignment fixes (Probably a few months out, TBH)
4.  Foreign Language Packs v3.5 - (Probably will release at the same time as the v3.21 updates)

Also, by August/September there will be a HUGE update!

SeeDReborn v4.0 Modernized UI and Theme Packs
[English Only]

Includes:
     - "Themes"  --  In the works:  Main Theme, Rinoa Theme, FFVII Inspired Theme, FFIX Inspired Theme
     - Updated/condensed hashmaps
     - Updated/Condensed Files (Mod will be 1/3 the size of v3.5)
     - Faster loading times due to less memory draw/injection
     - Custom UI colors/icons to match futuristic FF8 'feel'.
     - Updated Header Text
     - New Borders
     - Various Overhauled Elements and Limit Break Sprites

Optional Downloads:
     - Title Screen Selections
     - Character/GF Avatar Selections (Theme Variations)
     - Text Window Color/Gradient selections
     - Colorblind Version (Main Theme Only)
     - Font Selections:  Modern (v3.5), Classic (v3.2), and the Various Theme Fonts (Inspired by Balamb, FF7, FF9) [Will also provide link to Yagami Lights PS1 HD font replacement thread]

As you can see, I'm skipping right to version 4 due to several updates to the UI as well as the option for using different "Themes".  This version of the mod is meant to give FF8 a more modern look and feel to align more properly with the story of the game as well as giving customizable theme options.  The 'classic' version of SeeDReborn (v3.2) was designed to be 'as close to the original game' in it's appearance and feel and will essentially become the Classic Theme.  With 3.5, I took a true modder's approach, and I'm continuing in that vein to provide a more customized and unique FF8 experience.

If anyone out there wants to help out with any of the icons, fonts or themes let me know!  The more people that contribute, the faster the community gets a release!  If no one contributes, this might take me until December ;)  If that's the case, I will be releasing each "Theme" in stages, so there will be -something- to download by Sept.

Also - if there's anyone out there who might be able to help me with an installer for this mod to make customization easier, please contact me!

(If you prefer the 3.2 font, you can use the 'sy' folder from the 3.2 release and just move/replace the one from this version)
