Hello guys.

How some of you know I am working at modification of the FF IX game's engine.
Now I plan to start porting the FFVIII to the new engine. As result we will have a full modable game with engine what also combatible with FFVII.
It's a gigantic project and I cannot do that alone. If you want to help me - welcome! I teach you how to do that and will help if you will encount some problems.
We have a full described FFVIII resources and sources of FFIX. It's a hard task but not imposible.

The first target: render some location from the FFVIII on the FFIX engine (we need a field's mesh, textured overlays and camera's settings).
You can contact to me via PM or sykpe (albeoris).

Thank you for your attention.
Let make a seria great again.  :)

If this is truly possible. I would love to help somehow. My time is very restricted sue to my own project but someone with little time is better than someone with no time at all. I would be more an ff7 person but if an end goal is to do ff7 too then we all win. I will have to take you up on that teaching me though. What I can do is import models. Do music. And if possible I can try add voice to it with my team.

You got any proof of concept ? I'd love to see it.

I will try provide it ASAP.
Now I want to return the debugging information for displaying a walkmesh in the game.

Oh hi there! ;)
I wanted to code Snake in assembler working on VIII engine, but VIII working on IX engine? :D
FFIX engine you're talking about is in fact Unity, right? Silicon making FFIX on Unity with C# coding was the biggest gift they could do, with all the source human readable and IL recompiling. <3

Count me in! I'm a bit sick now but I will contact you on Skype ASAP (in 2-3 days I think)

Probably the ONLY gift Silicon had offered. Can I join too?

Nice to hear! I look forward to!

The first try:


Need to correct neighbors of vertices and camera's settings. :)

I made a new branch for the development of FF8.
https://github.com/Albeoris/Memoria/tree/ff8

To debug a walkmesh you can uncomment this line in the "FieldMap.cs":
// debugRender = true;

That is an awesome idea guys! Keep it up. I would love to watch a remake soon though in the Unity engine ;)

If you need a 3D artist, please let me know. FFVIII seriously needs a polygon face-lift.

Would it be possible, if not too much trouble, for someone to create a build of this branch, I've given it a few shots but programming is far from my speciality, and honestly I'm quite unsure what I'm doing, copying in the .dll files and running a build, gives me far too many errors.
