R06 doesn't need the exe - all text is external.  I've already tested that working.

Of course.

Although I'm testing it myself with foreign files as we speak.

The downside is certain parts need manually changing that way... like submarine text.  Not to mention certain texts won't fit.  Much better waiting for R06 so the full solution is there.

Source - prob not. The tool will be part of Reunion.

fast hard reset,

<  R06 has a soft reset option like old psx game did. As well as fast hard.

The good news is R06 allows for all languages to use English exe... ;)  So you can port your French language over.

It's part of R06 by default (and made better), which you're probably best waiting for.  That code above will only work with English version and also requires edits to the dlls .p and .fgd - depending on Steam / 1998.

{correct x pos of dialogue boxes
630CC7 = E8 34 2E 2E 00 90 90

<  This is jumping (calling) to code I added to correct the text box.  Without R05 installed, it will jump to nothing.

haha not sure where I got mine from.  Yeah - that's the file!

10
If 1998 version, there's a config file in root.  Config.cfg I think.  Not sure if deleting it will help.

In Steam, controls are set through the launcher.

11
Those aren't the default values - simply my current settings for testing.  But as you say the difference is minimal.

12
I'll certainly try ;)

In the meantime, here's how the new ini currently looks

Practically all by myself.

The two exceptions are

1. Charlie Beer - who is proof checking the retranslation project.  He's now added as one of the three main credits due to the level of work he's put in
2. Maki - who is sorting aali's dll to work with VScode / GCC - so I can use it with my own dll and The Reunion.  There are some bugs caused by sloppy code which will only manifest themselves on certain compilers, like the one I'm using [btw my own normal programming environment - Delphi - does not allow this.  It's just not that stupid].

The downsides to my new mod manager are that each CUSTOM folder contains one active user mod (global is global of course)  - The ability to have more than one mod working per folder means manual work will need to be done where there are conflicts.  Unlike 7H - this is the job of modders to accomodate it - or the End User.  The manager itself is as easy as it gets to work with, though.

For example, The BASE folder is for translation specific stuff (at the moment, this is Beacause - but can be changed to each lang).

Next GLOBAL - for things that generally won't conflict - like music files.

The  CUSTOM - which will supersede global where a conflict occurs.  If you had the SAME menu file in base, global, and custom - and custom was enabled - you'd see Custom file loaded only.

The Priority order is CUSTOM > BASE > GLOBAL.

ROOT will only be used when none of the above are present. ROOT files are never edited or touched.

It's much easier to see this in practice than me explaining it.

15
Global volume controls for FMV are now implemented.  Mute has also been added.  So now FMV will obey game volume and my new mute command (added by me) - as well as being global sound without cutting out when window focus lost (fixed by Maki).

16
I've taken drastic measures and decided to donate to Maki to help finally sort Aali's dll - and he's doing a glorious job ;)  FFmpeg vrtually sorted - some other bugs being fixed.

And when that's done, I can release R06 after some final testing.

17
I have not forgotten your request, Codemann.  You are priority after The Reunion for me to create that field code video.  I'll have a go at making it tonight.

18
For some reason the loop is not working correctly at least not on all the files... I'm 99% sure my code is correct but on '512 The Loser.ogg' it's obvious that STARTLOOP is being ignored. So it is looping the whole sound effect. So I look forward to ffmpeg.

<

Are you sure?  LOOPSTART should be absent when you don't want a loop.  LOOPSTART=0 will loop from start.  If you're on about RaW that is.

19
You actually reinforce my problem with 7H in your own post - that the idea was for each user to manage their own mod.  They can't - because

a. The modding structure is too complicated (I personally had a lot of issues simply installing it).
b. People aren't maintaining their own mod (because the end user can't be expected to become a programmer - unless they are experienced modders)
c. Some people are just lazy

It's become instead a one size fits all mod manager - that one person has to continually update and fix the thousand variation problems that exist between mods. As you say, no-one should be expected to do that.

Quantumpencil's Sister Ray does not fix this.  Unfortunately, it simply adds to a problem we already have - extra complexity - yet another solution that the end user will find confusing - while taking over entire modules (which breaks Menu Overhaul for a start - I'd have to port all my changes - thousands of them). I'll reserve proper judgement for when I see it in action - but the bad news is - he's using Aali's dll also - so it's completely incompatible with The Reunion as it stands.

It will be up to the end user and modders to decide which solution they like best.  My solution:

- No compressed / uncompressed archives other than the ones the game originally came with
- No expert modding knowledge needed
- Allows all languages to use English exe
- Is designed so that each mod folder can have one variation in it.  It's designed for one mod - and changing mods simply means changing one line of ini - or using a drop down menu from a config exe.
- Does not break other mods - and mods are optional
- Replaces all audio functions with my own.
- Easily turned on and off globally
- Does not edit the base files at all

When I release R06, we'll see how it fares with modders and users.  7H will still work with it - though it's not intended to be used that way - it's a complete solution on its own. It's designed to be as easy as possible to mod the game.

It should be that The Reunion has to be downloaded separately (it will work on its own with and without 7H and can't be added to a catalogue file).  I do not want my mod simply shipping with 7H every time as I then have no control over my own mod.


20
I'm not talking about R05 (this installer) - I mean my next one, which is also a modding tool. 

21
Are the PS1 buttons going to be optional in the next release? I much prefer the button names because I switch between using a keyboard and a non-standard controller.

Nah - they're mandatorywhen using Beacause / MO, since this is designed to be as it was in the PSX - however, modding the original back in should be a doddle tbh.

22
its the best modding tool for this game.

In my opinion, my modding tool is better - and I create my own installer and framework because I have no time to mess about with 7h or any other mod.

23
I certainly don't.  I do have a problem with 7h - in that I find it to be very very counter intuitive - and too much of a one size fits all approach, which can't ever work well enough across the board to be a good solution (hence the hourly threads that crop up by people either perplexed at how to install mods - or the conflicts of which Qhimm's is running out of space to store).  My secondary problem is how my mod is also being judged on the shortcomings of 7h. When it fails or has a conflict, people sometimes blame me or The Reunion for it. The Reunion - and especially R06+ are meant to be standalone mods - the latter even has its own modding solution.

I'm hoping more people create mods that work properly with the framework added to R06, but, if not, 7h is always there. 

I commend the effort with 7h and I'd never have a problem with anyone who contributes. 

24
Mcindus - that looks super nice :)

25
oooo that's impressive!
