YOU MUST HAVE LEGITIMATELY PURCHASED FINAL FANTASY VII FOR THIS PROGRAM TO WORK, AS FF7VOICE WILL NOT WORK ON PIRATED COPIES. WE DO NOT AND WILL NOT SUPPORT ANY TECHNICAL ISSUES FOR UNOFFICIAL RELEASES OF FINAL FANTASY VII. THIS PROGRAM SHALL NOT BE SOLD OR USED FOR FINANCIAL PROFIT BY ANY INDIVIDUAL OR THIRD-PARTY MEMBERS.  THE SCRIPT OF THE GAME REMAINS THE SOLE PROPERTY OF SQUARESOFT.

WHAT IS FF7VOICE
FF7Voice is basically a patch to apply Voice-Overs to all the characters and NPC's in FF7 that are tied to the main game's events. The patch works by intercepting the dialog calls of the game and playing the appropriate recorded line from the protected sound archive. The original concept of FF7Voice was suggested by FF7Heart and a proof of concept was put together by Ficedula and perfected by Dziugo.

THE SCRIPT
A full game script was produced for the game by Marc with the help of Tsetra, Revenile and Prince Lex.  Our recording will be based on that script and it contains every line by dialog ID and field location in the game as well as battle ID and movie name and timing.  DPLB also gave us the list of all of the world map text thanks to his retranslation project.  Recording will take place starting with major events of the game and working down from them in order of importance.

The script is based off the PC gamne's original English translation, errors and all.  The script is available upon request to those who wish to use it for a FF7 improvement project or for a base for another language translation.  Ask Marc for your needs of it.

Permission to use the ff7voice program will however need to be granted from dziugo, the coder for said program if you wihs to do another language version of this project.

WHEN WILL FF7VOICE BE RELEASED?
When its ready.  This is a long term project and we'll make announcements when ready.

WILL THERE BE A DEMO BEFORE THE RELEASE?
No.  Betas will be available when we're far enough along.  We'll put up appropriate requests at that time.  Don't ask for it until we put out the call because you're sure NOT to get one if you do.

WHO IS STILL AVAILABLE FOR AUDITIONS?
Casting Calls are put up as needed.  Please look in the forums for them.

WHAT CAN I DO TO HELP?
Appropriate requests will be put up as needed.

CAN I GET MY HANDS ON A ALPHA/PRE-BETA/BETA RELEASE ?
No.  Don't even ask.
