emokid i don't think u understand what Kudistos Megistos is saying...
all the different battle models in the game have different animations, which would be how they attack with there weapon, wield there weapon, use magics, use items, and other things. these are all separate animations for each character.
now.....there is only one fight in the game when u fight Rufus. and all he does is attack, (i believe).. so the only animations that rufus is gonna have are his standing animation and his attacking animation,
so if u replace cloud with Rufus, whats gonna happen if u use, a magic, a summon,use a command like d.blow or steal,or even use ur normal attack, cause obviously Rufus has a gun not a sword.... .ur Rufus that u replaced for cloud isn't going to have these animations and will f**k up basically,
i would suggest not changing cloud for Rufus
