Announcements and site development / Tunnel Vision
« on: 2016-01-08 04:42:14 »
Hello All,

I've been visiting for most of this millennium spite only registering in 08. I've watched this forum evolve over time and only now do I feel the need to say something...

The work done here by the members is so remarkable, and I know of the amount of work that goes into keeping a forum running and active.

I don't want to step on toes, but I feel now is the time to express my belief that those of you who keep this place breathing day in and day out have a bit of tunnel vision in regards to the way the entire forum is organized.

What I mean by this is that you are all so familiar with how this forum thinks, how  the forum is structured, that you may not quite see, or appreciate how difficult it is to navigate without knowledge of the place. I've floated about these forums for years, I've never been an active member though, and every now and again when I pass on by to see what's going on, I have to relearn the structure and the way the forum thinks to find out what is going on.

When we, as the collective, started to create the sub forums for mod releases, to separate discussions; I was excited to see that there was some forward thinking going on. I expected this to continue but sadly it hasn't, spite Administrators such as obesebear's best efforts to make clear cut rules. Though I can see the logic behind it all and it is beautiful in it's own way.

As I said before, I do not wish to step on toes, so while I feel that this next paragraph should now consist of examples and suggestions on what I would change, I also don't feel that is appropriate right now. I mearly want to bring the community out of the tunnel and into the light.

With the inevitable hype that the FF7 remake is bringing to the world, let alone this forum, now is the time to look outside the box, change the way you think, use different tools if required, recollect your data and files that have been made through-out the years. Turn this place into the hub of information it is supposed to be, and ensure that it is easily accessable.

Thanks for reading.

Warm regards to all,

- James.

7thHeaven / Break 9999 crash
« on: 2016-01-08 03:44:34 »
Can't confirm if this is a conflict with another mod... yet.

Enabling Break 9999 causes the game to crash.

Tested and reproduced with the initial battle.

No Gameplay mods enabled.
Menu overhaul being used: without beacause, removed hand indicator, and no battle boxes.
Jessie Mod not being used.
Sephiroth Story mod not being used.
Faster Enemy Deaths: 1
Always Run: 1
Clock Fix: 1
Increase Sense Limit: 1
Save/PHS Anywhere: 1
Skip Cutscenes: 1

Everything related to textures in use (not likely to be related anyway).

7thHeaven / Bug Feedback? Cosmetic bug
« on: 2016-01-08 02:06:53 »
Where's the correct place to post bugs?

Under Workshop > Open GL Driver Configuration; the help text stating the "Should be" are the wrong way around... right?

7thHeaven / [Solved] No Music
« on: 2016-01-08 01:29:50 »
Trying 7H for the first time; I've always been one to manage the mods manually my self, usually...

So, as the title states... No Music. Is FF7Music.exe supposed to load somewhere?

Where to begin trouble shooting? I have sound. Sound Effects change if I change them, but no music. (FMV music, obviously plays but nothing else.)

Suggestion to EQ2Alyza

Under your important notes you have

Important Notes
➣ Music Plugin: VGMStream <-- Music will not work if this is not selected.

At a glace, due to the double use of "not" appears like one should not use VGMStream.

This should be rephrased from a negative sentence to a positive one, something like the following to avoid confusion:

Important Notes
➣ Music Plugin: VGMStream <-- VGMStream must be selected for Music to work.

edit: spelling.
