Do you have a list of all the mods you put in 7th Heaven Catalog?
Title: Re: 7th Heaven Mod Requests
Post by: Sega Chief on 2015-01-12 18:58:44
Sorry about all the recent updates, Alyza. I thought that the catalog pulled the NT's IRO file from the NT Thread; I didn't know you were having to keep it updated as a separate thing.

Post by: Kaldarasha on 2015-01-14 15:06:01
If Iros doesn't find the time soon to fix the problem with high-us.lgp then I thik I should disable the models for the minigame and make them optional.
The other solution would be to let the games converter patch the lgp with some models. I haven't tested yet if a small change would make it editable for 7H. Maybe a small replacement with the original field models would work.

Would you think adding the Team Avalanche Sector 5 high res. fields would be a good idea? I should have that done around end of January-beginning of February.

No, but I suppose I can make one if people care for it. What I could do is make the link in the catalog go to a google doc that lists what is in each category. How does that sound?

It's not a problem to update, once I can get the patch feature to work. Don't worry about it :)

Sure. Do you want it combined with Omzy or yarLson fields, or have it a stand alone alongside vanilla textures?

If you could it would make my day :D
I dont mind Kaldarasha models, heck I really like how his version of Cloud can change swords but I would really like if the field models i use reflected the battle models too.
Title: Re: 7th Heaven Mod Requests
Post by: EQ2Alyza on 2015-01-22 15:15:48
What do you mean? If you're using Kaldarasha field models, then there are also Kaldarasha battle models to choose. There are other authors who only have battle model options, so I need their names if that's what you mean by wanting the field models.
Title: Re: 7th Heaven Mod Requests
Post by: KohryuZX on 2015-01-22 18:50:29
Ah I mean I don't use Kaldarasha battle models because i prefer the models like Avalanche and APZ Cloud and BloodShot Tifa better.
The prettier and more advanced looking ones in other words.

I added requests into a "To Do List" in the OP. Hopefully I can keep up with it as I go along.

Post by: Fischkopf on 2015-01-25 21:53:45
"AC Style Yuffie" (by Grimmy) should be included as well i think, I always liked that one in Bootleg. And the option to use all battle models as field models (and vice versa) and select them individually would be nice of course.

Fix White Weapons

Add CHaOS Features Into Models Categories

I'll see what I can do for it after I finished the models for Dan.
The GC should also install DLPB's Tools 2.0 instead of the multi.dll. If it is set to wait for the process FF7.exe it works pretty well together with 7H.

@Fischkopf
My German mod will need some time so don't expect to see it soon on the 7H list.

I polish Mike's and ZL325's Aerith model because she looks like a granny when the lighting is on (like it is in the field scenes):
(http://fs2.directupload.net/images/150218/88dt2gfw.jpg)

I'll decompress the HQ models and see what is needed to fix current bugs like white weapons soon. Dynamic weapons for the different Clouds should also be possible.

Hey EQ2Alyza. So glad you are doing this. I've switched completely as well, and am waiting for R02 in 7th heaven before I try it ;)

I have one request:

I think it would be awesome to include cm175's videos (http://forums.qhimm.com/index.php?topic=14852.0). I personally like the quality in his videos in comparison to the others that are currently included in 7th heaven.

Thanks again for all of your work. Can't wait for the future updates.

I would very much like APZ cloud as well, the only options I have for field models aren't that great.

The Retranslation is a must as well.

I would like to request that air buster model replacer get added as well, the forum thread with the model can be found here

http://forums.qhimm.com/index.php?topic=15326.0

60fps Battle would be great as well.

http://forums.qhimm.com/index.php?topic=10474.0

Removal of the hand indicator may be a nice little tweak as well

http://forums.qhimm.com/index.php?topic=13521.0

Modern spell names would be great as well, cura etc.



also for the battle replacements I don't know if anyone used anything from this older thread, but I don't see the creators name credited in the battle replacement mod.

I only wanted to request something that has been requested already which is the Retranslation mod. I would really love to see how the real dialogues were XD Thank you for all the hard work EQ2Alyza. Thanks to you I am enjoying a really nice Final Fantasy and the modding was totally easy.

ReTranslation will definitely be in if I can get the file structure to work with the current version of 7H. We may have a stupid workaround we have to deal with regarding the ff7.exe though.

Be it you manage to achieve it or not, what you have already done is awesome. I never expected I could start the game playing it with so little work. The interface is wonderful and customization as easy as ticking boxes. Mere words can't express enough the gratefulness for your effort and of course the effort of everyone that loves this game and did their best to make it look better!

First of all, great work!

I really like how you've grouped the mods.

Here are some small suggestions:
- Animations:
    . Add 'Faster Summons' (from The Reunion).
- Menu Overhaul:
    . Move 'Break 9999 Limit' to 'Gameplay - Tweaks and Cheats'.
    . Add an entry for configuring the Barrier Enemy Skill animation: bar or glyph (from the Reunion). Currently, the glyph animation is used.
    . Add an entry for configuring the World Map (the ones from the Reunion are cool).
- Gameplay - Tweaks and Cheats:
    . Add additional options from The Reunion. The one that for me is more critical is the script fixes, which is also present in bootleg.
- Gameplay - Difficulty and Story:
    . Cut down the number of difficulty modes?
    . Maybe add the script fixes here instead?

The Reunion was still being worked on when I released the Final Heaven tutorial, so I'll have more features of it added in for the next update. So long as it's possible, I'll add your suggestions.

The difficulty modes are cut down significantly. All Aerith Revival options will be gone, as per request of the mod author, but will still be available as addons for New Threat and Nightmare 7. All of the combos will be gone as well (e.g. Reasonable Difficulty + Scene Redux, etc...) because I just don't feel people use them. Difficulty mods have the most complex of files to sort out, and off course they have to sometimes be patched for compatibility with other mods (e.g. Reunion Beacause + New Threat, etc...). I have to reduce the amount for time vs. reward as its just not worth the effort for how little people use the combos. Then there's also the balancing factor since no difficulty mods are built to be balanced in combination with another.

I'm sure it will help alot of people, that sounds great :)

Just wanted to say that it would be very helpful indeed. For new people, it's difficult to guess and find the mods and corresponding forum threads. Most mod managers do not give any information about what they're using. Here, we have the names, but for example in The Reunion is even harder to actually identify the original mods and pieces unless you have been around here for a long time.

Also, maybe this hasn't been reported yet but in 'Field Models' of 'Field Models - Characters, Enemies, and Objects' no image is being shown for 'Rebuilded'.

oh one last thing. what about AC Transparent for the Menu Avatars?

I wanted the same thing. I decided to make my own basic mod for it. Feel free to use it. :) http://1drv.ms/YXxgvC

Please note that I take no credit for the artwork used in this pack. Simply created it because I like the avatars and wanted to use it.

Hello! this is my very first post and before i ask you to add something else in the future, i wanted to say THANK YOU!! for making all of this for us, you are just amazing!

Now, what i would love for the next updates would be more avatar options, like the Bootlegged one of Tifa's Bootleg please!?, i just loved the way it was done and the colors, really amazing, the AC transparent avatar too (but someone else asked for it before so..i'll just second him), the menu switch option PLEASE! i love the way the main menu AND the battle menus were done! and in 7th heaven we don't have any of those, well, only one! (if it does then i must have done something wrong then), other than that, everything is fine

On a side note, is there a way to switch any of the music? i wanted to change the battle theme but i just can't find them anywhere, only the midi's :/, iand i may have some problems with the order of the mods (i placed them in the correct order but some just don't work at all) but that's for another post, sorry about that, maybe someone else can answer me this, thanks! i hope you can make this happen! :D

That's fine by me, but the only issue with that will be using the auto update feature in 7H. If new versions are released, they will never know unless they visit the forums regularly. Then we will have to deal with the silly questions of "XXXX mod has YYYY issue, how do I fix it?" when an update may have already fixed it.

I get the need for manual downloads though :)

7h should treat both manually installed & downloaded mod the same.. For now when you manually installed a mod and you looked at the catalog.. you will see the same mod still available for download even if its already installed..

Could it be the filename?? because for example.. if you manually installed a mod it will be named lj;lkj;ljlkj;lkjlk;lkj;lkj_Battle_Models_Characters_1.0 instead of just Battle Models Characters 1.0
Some kind of a file check will help 7h to determine if a file was already installed..

Anyways, thats another lot of work i imagine.. Looking forward to 7h 2.0.. kudos sir/madam

The proper way to manually install an IRO is to use the Import button in the Library tab after you have downloaded the IRO from an upload site. Doing this will make a duplicate copy of the mod inside the Library Location you set for Workshop -> Settings and it will be labeled properly inside 7H. Once that happens, you can delete the IRO download to conserve space, but if you ever uninstall the mod from within 7H, then you won't have a copy of the IRO to Import. It will have to be downloaded again.

If you download the IRO and directly place it into the Library Location you set for Workshop -> Settings, then 7H will read the mod in the Library tab the next time you open 7H. It will show up as IDTag_ModName_ModVersion as you described. This is not the preferred way though.

What I need to see is if Update Patches can use the Import button to properly patch and update a mod. This is the main function for having the Catalog, and I do not know if it works manually. If it doesn't, this means that every update will have to have patches made for the Catalog and full versions made for manual downloads. That is a really annoying process to do manually if all I have to offer is a bug fix for a mod that is very small in size, but the mod itself may be very large.

It's madam :)

Oh.. a techie lady bee.. nice to make your acquaintance madam :)

Actually what i did was... Since i was planning to do a clean install and reinstall everything.. I backed up my downloaded .iro files in my library folder (they are already named idtag_modname_version) and i import those file using the Import IRO in the Library tab of 7h..

Yes, it will come with the current flevel/scene hotfix. Whenever there is an update to a mod, the Download button will turn into a Update button the Catalog tab. The window on the ride-side will also tell you when a mod has an update. If you right-click the green Installed button in the Library tab, you can set Update Types for each of the mods.

I really like the sound of drop down music selection (get it?)

whoever said about previewing the music, I shouldn't think that would be that hard, excepting that you may have to use a built in music player. I imagine something like winamp would fit nicely as it doesn't have to be anything fancy.

Just code a play button that will call whichever file is highlighted by the drop down. I might even be able to figure this out if you want the help Alyza? (I come across coding a bit in my new job, it would probably be VBA code as that is what I know, but that should be alright for a subapp?)

Almost done with all the file sorting/placements (lots of model changes/additions). After that I need to edit all the preview images. Then a small change to the game converter. Lastly is writing up the google docs for the mod details of each category (this can probably be updated after release and patched in). So that's your ETA, whatever time that may take. 1.4 won't be out before then lol :P

Sure, that would be a great feature if possible. We would have to do it off the records until I can get Iros to approve of it. But if it works, I'm sure I could toss it his way to see what he thinks.

Give yourself a pat on the back for all the dedication you've put into this project. You're a real workhorse, but I think you're also kind of a masochist for beta testing all the mods and maintaining the subscription all by yourself.

I originally thought the whole point of 7thHeaven was so that modders could upload all the little tweaks and updates on the fly and those could then be hotfixed via individual subscriptions for each mod suite. I suppose anyone could write their own subscription on pastebin and maintain their own mega/gdrive/dropbox shared folder, but have you considered a second subscription list with a shared folder open to everyone contributing to the currently compatible mods so they could update them immediately? I guess it would be a lot more cluttered, messy, and glitchy than your current subscription layout, but it'd certainly reduce the burden of testing and updating. Maybe a tutorial for making mods compatible with 7thHeaven or making .iro a forum standard? This is the way a lot of modding communities are leaning. Frankly I think you're going to burn out converting and testing everything yourself.

Now that I've looked into it, anyone should be able to do all this right now. It's not like Iros hasn't explained everything already for slow people like me. Still unless the shared directory is owned/hosted/administrated by someone who's actively involved in the modding, then it could disappear at anytime.

*Pats self on back*  ;D

Yes, I have thought about a 2nd subscription that is open to the public. In fact, I think it's necessary if we want to see any more advancement with 7H. Another option is to begin uploading 7H and IRO formatted mods to the FFVII section of Nexus Mods. The one downside to having all the mods freely downloadable will be compatibility issues. Trust me, people won't read directions or already answered FAQs and we will get bombarded with "This isn't working..." type of questions. Unless you know the file structure of the mods, users will generally put mods in the wrong load order or have too many downloaded that all modify the same files (general rule is don't download more than one mod that modifies the .bin files or the flevel.lgp, and you shouldn't have many issues). Despite this issue, I still believe we should give it a go.

My subscription is meant to eliminate as many frustrations as possible and make almost everything compatible with each other. I am certainly not burnt out on it. I love this game and community too much. I am just slow because I work on it by myself and I am limited to only a couple sit downs a week due to my hectic lifestyle right now.

I didn't even realize there was an FFVII section in Nexus. I think it's a great idea, and would add a lot of exposure and possibly attract more modders to the other projects. You're being awful considerate of people who can't figure out the FAQ that spells everything out. I understand the qhimm community is very social, but nexus as a whole seems to just let people figure out how to get mods to work on their own, and maybe someone will answer obvious questions in the comments section about known conflicts and glitches. Usually the mod developer will only comment if the original file is corrupted or no longer functions due to an update.

Also you'd basically have free reign since the section is totally empty: http://www.nexusmods.com/finalfantasy7/mods/searchresults/?

I think putting all these mods and 7thheaven on nexus has the potential to make a lot more people aware there even are mods for ff7. I only found out through your youtube bootleg video.
Title: Re: 7th Heaven Mod Requests - To Do List
Post by: EQ2Alyza on 2015-09-03 08:17:48
I think Nexus is a great option, but some things would have to happen here first.

1) All active mod authors would have to be contacted. We would need all the mods to be uploaded by their authors to avoid any problems. This doesn't answer what to do with mods whose authors are no longer active.

2) I would like to see all mods having two uploads, one their original work and the other in .iro format for 7H. I should post a guide on how to convert them to .iro as it's a really simple process for most mods. Some are a little more complex, but nothing that can't be taught. Then it's just a matter of getting everyone on the same page to begin creating their mods with .iro downloads. Many modders are still not in practice with 7H and making their mods for it yet.
Title: Re: 7th Heaven Mod Requests - To Do List
Post by: olearyf2525 on 2015-09-03 11:21:29
Ah I see, I think there is one more barrier to entry that I'm not sure can be changed easily. The forum name, it's actually at the top of the google search if you search ff7 mods but the name probably throws most newbies off, like what the heck is a qhimm? (Or I wonder if that's google analytics or something just remembering sites I visit?) I imagine if the forum name was something more descriptive including the words final fantasy and mods or some such a lot more people would peek into it, I could be completely wrong but I don't think so! Also a lot of people still visit moddb, the thing about that site is the way its designed it has so many games and self-contained mods with their own pages that your mod will only really generate a lot of traffic if it reaches their top 100 list or is featured in some way I imagine.
Title: Re: 7th Heaven Mod Requests - To Do List
Post by: Jahiliyyah on 2015-09-04 00:26:28
Just post what you can and refer people to the forum in the about section. An .iro faq makes perfect sense, so anyone can convert files themselves rather than uploading altered mods without the creators input. Just get the ball rolling, and you'll see people responding.

In case this was overlooked:

One suggestion for the 2.0 release: Right now the Team Avalanche "Sweeper" model is only replacing the ones outside of Midgar, which are separate models from the ones appearing at the beginning of the game. I could fix this by renaming the "cv" files from the Team Avalanche Sweeper model to "av" files, as the "custom Sweepers" that appear outside of Midgar are really just a color variations of the normal Sweepers (as seen here (http://finalfantasy.wikia.com/wiki/User:JBed/FFVII/Enemies)). There's also the "Death Machine" variation (je) which should use Team Avalanche Model as well.

She has waifu field, battle, world textures up on there for awhile, cause I asked a month or two ago as well. Only difference since then is Satsuki said he played through the game twice and fixed some bugged textures I guess.

Since you need the 1.02 Version of the game to get 7th Heaven to work you can also use aali's driver which is able to  replace textures. The reunion mod has itroduced real button symbols. it only needs to  patch the moded flevel.lgps by the mod authors with dlpb's tools and toughscript. This is better as using one mod that will conflict with others.

It was made way back in the stone age, before we had a lot of the tools we use for modding now a days. This made it near impossible to use our current tools to patch it to be compatible with other mods. The mod author recently stated this and said they won't ever return to it for any updates, so by request, it needed to be retired. Nightmare 7 and New Threat mods took Aeris Revival and fixed/added it properly to their mods, so it can still be played through them.

Nightmare 7 used Espio's mod directly I think, but the one in NT was made from scratch (I think the Aeris Revival mod had a unique sidequest in it, and the dialogue will undoubtedly be different); Espio recently let me use the new animations they'd made for Disc 2/3 though which helped with a lot of tricky scenes needing unique animations like the Corel Train and the final descent.

1.4 is the version for the next New Threat mod. 2.0 is the next version of the Catalog. I know what you meant though :)

The Sephiroth mod is added into the next 2.0 Catalog release. There will be no "auto install" feature. You just have to download the Gameplay - Difficulty and Story category from the Catalog, then select Sephiroth Story mod from it.

Ahh gotcha, well then I guess it's even better that we now have two versions of Aerith staying alive to play with :)

Also is the reunion mod going to be compatible with the latest version of 7th heaven.

Yes, although currently it will only be Beacause and Menu Overhaul features added into the Catalog. I will have to look at R04 to see what else we can do with it, but I believe that's going to get rid of Menu Overhaul and stick to Steam compatibility mostly? Don't worry, if there are any mod requests after the 2.0 Catalog release, I can look into them for 2.1 patches.

Credit where its due of course. :-) just so we are clear, this is the appreciation of her own work and effort, besides i dont see why any other modder / contributor couldnt have their own donation button, it would be fully ok.

Unfortunately, you will only be able to play New Threat by itself. I might be able to patch in other mods down the road, but that's a BIG might. Right now, Wall Market crashes when trying to apply any kernel patches together with New Threat and Nightmare 7. If I can't patch their kernels, then I can't even attempt to get them working with other mods unless it's done....manually (NOPE, not me). You can play Scene Redux + Reunion Beacause though, so you're not completely out. I think New Threat, and to some extent Nightmare 7, are such massive overhauls to the game that you shouldn't be mixing it with other mods anyways. It's complicated to explain, but the files that are altered in them are so many that it's basically a brand new game. And all of that modding was done manually, so you can see why I'm unable to use tools to automatically patch them with other mods. It just isn't that simple.

The game may launch, but it's not playing NT + Reunion Beacause together. The 7H tool would inject the kernel.bin, kernel2.bin, and scene.bin from NT, which overwrites the ones inside your game folder. This means it doesn't matter if Reunion Beacause, Original game, or any other mod that alters those files are installed. They all would get overwritten by what 7H injects when the game starts up.

If I can get NF1TC1 or anyone else to help me with the Wall Market crash, then it may be possible to patch NT + Reunion Beacause.

Well if they can it would be great since those 2 mods are most important for me, ill stick to the old setup till then. Or PM me if its not too much to ask or bother you(and if its not important for this thread), don't know if im the only one who's interested in this.

I can tell you that New Threat made it's own dialog changes in some parts, though mostly minor, which really add to the clarity of certain sentences. Or which are tutorials for new aspects of the game added in new threat. For example if you've seen the tutorial area in the sectory 7 slums he completely re-did it, so it makes sense that it wouldn't work with Beacause. If you are getting the two to work in 7th heaven right now one is over-writing the other's dialog probably, depending on your load order.

Thank you olearyf for clarification. No i havent actually started a playthrough, just activeated nt for a few minutes, saw that it is working (different battle stats etc) and switched back to regular gameplay. Thats actually the reason why im waiting for catalog 2.0, nt 1.4, R04 is out already and being polished. I was planning to restart the game with all 3 new versions.
Title: Re: [FF7] Update Reports and Mod Requests
Post by: EQ2Alyza on 2016-01-04 16:08:17
The dialogue changes take part mostly in the flevel.lgp scenes, so that makes it extra tricky. We can chunk out the different sections of the flevel, as seen here (http://wiki.qhimm.com/view/FF7/Field_Module#General_PC_Field_File_Format), but even with that there will be overlap. If you play with NT above R03e in 7H load order, you will get the NT dialogue. If you play vice versa, you will get R03e dialogue. But, there are more to the scenes than just dialogue, so you could miss out on a lot.

I wonder how much field dialogue in the entire game is changed by NT because if it's minimal enough, than you might be able to play through smoothly with it loaded above R03e. BUT, none of this matters if I can't get the kernels and scene.bin patched correctly, else the scene look-up tables will be a mess. When it's not patched correctly, you get the wrong encounters in battle.

Thanks for the clarifications even those that weren't asked but helped as well, ill ask segachief on nt dialogue part, and my q for you is, 1) can you and if yes 2)when - patch them?
This is in no way a pressure to rush you, just a practical q so i know if i wait it up if its soon or play it off as it is if not.
Ultimately i may just follow your advice and play nt above r03 when 2.0 is released and bear w minor discrepancies. ;-)

You unfortunately won't be able to play NT 1.35 above R03e for Catalog 2.0. The kernels and scene.bin won't be patched correctly for the scene look-up table, so you'll end up with wrong encounters in battle. I've already contacted NF1TC1 and he's looking over my patch files now. Hopefully we can get a solution soon, and if we do, I can make a Catalog 2.1 patch for it.

As a mere curiosity, I was revising the Reunion mod parts and thinking what parts and version will be included in the new catalog 2.0,
to know which ones would need to be updated and which ones are installed through other existing mods. Correct me if I'm wrong but from what I get things will be like this once 2.0 is out:

1. BEACAUSE -> Included in catalog 2.0 R03e-> will need patch to R04x (hopefully not too complicated)
2. MENU ENHANCEMENT-> Included partially(completely?) in catalog 2.0 with fonts/textures of R03e (patch needed to R04x?)
3. 60FPS BATTLES-> Not possible to use from 7H and no alternatives from other mods
4. WEAPON -> Not included because still needs a lot of development (I guess)
5. MODEL OVERHAUL -> Not included but models can be replaced by other mods (not sure if all of  the Reunion are covered by your catalog but they seem enough to me)
6. PATCHES -> Included partially (completely?) in catalog 2.0 under tweaks and cheats (Not sure about faster deaths and shades)

I don't know if it's possible to combine NT with Reunion without doing it manually. Too many elements from encounter tables to game scripts are likely different; too different for a tool to be able to patch them together cleanly because it won't know what to keep and what to overwrite.

Here's an example, Oleary mentioned NT's Beginner's Hall. A lot of the tutorials there in the default game, I find, are completely redundant. They cover things like how to Save your game, and worse than that a chunk of them are delivered in the slow-ass Menu tutorial format. So for NT, I changed all of these to explain game mechanics that cover things I usually got asked during my challenge runs, etc. Things like how damage mitigation from Sadness/Back-Row works, ATB settings and their advantages/drawbacks, how Natural Dex vs. Boosted Dex works; stuff like that. I also turned them into normal text boxes, instead of Menu tutorials. The other tutorials that do use normal text boxes in the default game were changed too; and some of the explanations, like for elements vs. enemy types in NT, needed an extra box or two.

Now our tool comes along with Reunion text & scripts to inject. First off, the triggers for the Menu tutorials are gone so that translated text is lost already, except it'll translate the names of the tutorial options themselves which means when you pick, say, the explanation on Saving you'll get the extra NT text talking about ATB settings instead. The other tutorials will be worse; if there's additional text boxes, then you'll get the translated text followed by an extra text box or two from NT that's talking about something else entirely; in short, it won't make a lot of sense.

I think that'd generally be the problem; just a disconnect between what the mods do. Reunion translates the text, NT repurposes it instead. There's going to be a lot of overlap that only a manual edit can navigate cleanly.

Thx segachief for pre answering my questions. Well then does that mean that even present 7h with nt + separate r03 install will be as sega chief described? If yes then it's either waiting for that 2.1 patch or giving up nt or r03 in 2.0.

1. Correct, and I hope it won't. Have to look at it first.
2. R03e is included completely. R04x is a separate mod to R03x, in which it fixes the original game's menu/fonts. I'd have to look at it first before I can say if it could be added.
3. It's not possible from the standalone mod: http://forums.qhimm.com/index.php?topic=10474.0 --- The  Reunion battle speed is in the current Catalog, but it's old (R02x I believe). I can look at what's new in R04x.
4. It won't be looked at until development is finished.
5. Not needed as all his options should be in the Catalog.
6. R02x Patches are spread out across multiple categories in the Catalog. I will look at R03x and R04x Patches and see what could be added/updated to the Catalog.

I asked SC to chime in because I felt he could explain the details in more depth than I could possibly understand. I knew that kind of scenario would happen, and probably quite often, I just don't know when because I've not played NT all the way through yet (can't wait to try it!). There won't be a patch for it in 2.1 at this point, as I'm convinced that the game will be an utter mess if attempted with automated tools. I, for one, do not have the time to do it manually. In fact, I don't think anyone would because it would require an insurmountable amount of work for just one or two people to do it. If you think about it, The Reunion and New Threat have both been in production for YEARS, so the manually work required to patch them together would...well, you get how long that may be :P

Looks kind of interesting, I remember they had an AH in ff9 too, it'd be cool if they added something like that in the remake. As long as it's in game items and not real life micro transactions or dlc for items...knowing Square and other gaming companies today...

What I would really like to see in a mod is the  ff7 GFS retextured I saw some video where the guy ripped the models from ff10, Shiva looked gorgeous.

I think it was released at some point in a VII OVA Remake pack at Cloudiar website (http://ffvii.mooo.com) but the site is down, and couldn't find any mirrors looking at spanish pages, so the only chance would be to find anyone who still has it or contact him to re-upload it.

Ok so ive tried new game with 7h+nt(iro game story) + r03 exe installer, just to see what goes. It appears that nt part is working perfectly, in the beginners hall nt stuff is shown correctly(loaded previously saved game played wo nt mod), as in the YouTube video "new threat mod 1.3 (anti-anima) ep 1- a threatening start" around 34th minute, the tutorial in my game is the same as in video tutorial. The game is nt faithfull u till i beat scorpion 2nd time, didnt go further.
On the other hand ive seen many dialogues ingame so far (started great glacier in disc 2) and there is definitely a lot of changes in dialogue, presumably from r03. Few glitches such as game crashing when i enter sleeping man in the cave north of fort condor (with this install set but wo active nt mod), or not being able to get a second beta from zolom (when he hits yuffie with his tail she freezes and any action i take w other characters freezes commands and game just hangs - this also wo active nt mod), but overall its mostly smooth sailing. :-/
Maybe this will work as is...? Will reinstall to see if those glitches dissappear if yes it will be great. Maybe it would work even better w 2.0 who knows...
Edit: well sleeping man cave still crashes. Cant confirm zolom bug bc he flushes me out of battle, suppose it would also stay the same with present setup.
Maybe try full clean and reinstall all to see if it sorts those bugs.
Edit 2: It could be that it works so well bc r03 is installed and then nt is loaded via 7h on top of it? Just thinking aloud. It may serve some purpose to someone here.

Well you also have to keep in mind, if you've never played the Pc version before like me that the PC game script is different than the Ps1, when I first installed New Threat I thought I had reunion somehow because I didn't realize they changed the script for PC a bit, like I said Segachief also altered the script a bit it seems too. So if you are remembering the ps1 script it will be quite different just with PC version and New Threat, even without Reunion.

I renamed iros files by number and backed them up so when i reinstall / reset 7h i just copy them wo su scription, import in proper order. Maybe it could be implemented that a proper order of iros is already set when dld so ppl dont have to guess what goes when?

A new release like this will require a fresh install so there are as few errors as possible and do a registry cleaner for good measure. You need to remember that a new release has a new interface so alway a fresh start is the always the best way to go.

I'm sorry I'm  a newb at modding but I think this might be wrong. 7th heaven injects mods while you play, that is why it creates that folder in the steam directory with all the temporary files of the mods you downloaded. So yes maybe you have a point if he already manually installed a bunch of mods, but I think when Alyza releases the new catalogue all I have to do is delete Satsuki's textures I manually installed and then just use 7th heavens Satsuki textures which they inject at runtime. If we were using bootleg then yes you would have to start over, but I think that is the perk of 7th heaven, everything it does is temporary so it doesn't screw up your game files!

Edit:So yes it might be the case that he has to start over because he manually installed Reunion, and I'm not sure where that installs to or what files it affects, but if it created a reunion folder in your mods folder you probably just have to delete that(Which I think is what happens!). But it was also worrying two other people it seemed so I wanted to try to clarify that they probably don't have to start over. I'd just wait to see what Alyza says before you cause yourself more work.

TLDR: We probably just have to re-download the mod files from 7th heaven when the catalogue is patched, not completely uninstall re-install, key clean ff7. That is the point of 7th heaven as opposed to bootleg from what I can gather. Just wait to see what Alyza says when she is ready to save yourself work/time.

Witcher 3 was really good, I didn't finish it because my comp broke plus I got burned out cause too many sidequests and I'm a completionist but the story was fantastic and the main sidequests were too I got pretty close to the end and did nearly everything. I'd say if you wind up liking Witcher 2 then get Witcher 3 when it's cheaper. Usually gog is their main site, they sell it DRM free, I think if you buy a steam copy you can get a DRM free copy from their site too though. I did for Witcher 2 a few years ago, not sure if they still do that but I think they do. I think you just have to put in your Steam Key. It's gog.com they are the ones who make Witcher series, Cd Project Red, fantastic Polish company. So you can probably still get DRM free copy of Witcher 2 from them too since you bought it off Steam.
Also look up Final Fantasy A+ I posted it in random links, it's way funnier.

You need to start reading what people are saying. Alyza has said it'll be done when it's done. Mods will be added when she can, or when the mod creators have responded allowing them to be used.

Exactly this. A few days more don't make much difference now.^^

Because it's not ready yet. She's working on it, and she can work on it faster if people spend less time asking about it. She will tell you when it's done, but it's hard to estimate how long that will take.

Upload mod, download and install, error in the Configure *Doh, oh well. It happens*

Fix the error, forget to hit save button, upload mod, download and install, error in the Configure *Grrr, I'm stupid. Oh well, do it again.*

Fix the error, save this time, upload mod, download and install, error in another spot of the Configure *Sigh, damnit. Well at least the first is fixed*

Fix the second error, forget to save again, upload mod, download and install, error in the Configure *I hate my life...*



The joys of dealing with the last stretches in a massive project. Almost there everyone 8)

Take your time Alyza.maybe a checklist before uploading is necessary,if there are a lot of factors that matters for the correct working of the mods.

My god if I was admin i would ban you right now. You're like spoiled brat not knowing when to shut up, just bite it and wait it out, shes as impatient to release it as anyone. Stop pissing people of with constant questions. We all want to see it you get it?

Even i know when to shut up.

Edit: those were harsh words from me zara and i take it back, and apologize if it was out of place. I myself am very impatient so i reacted that way.

Checklist is already written out and done :) It's just a matter of typos and silly mental mistakes like hitting a save button. And currently the only way to check the compatibility feature, they have to be uploaded and downloaded to pull the ID information from it. Manual imports of the IRO don't appear to recognize the mod IDs. No biggie, just a little bit of a time sink.

Almost all of their recent posts have been complaining about things and asking unreasonable requests. It's not right for the community and for Alyza, it's exactly as you say.
As Tama chicken said to many of us, i belong to this group myself, so zara let alyza do her work in peace.

You're on the home stretch now. We can wait - work at your most comfortable pace and I'm sure you'll be happier and we'll be happier knowing you've not been guilt-tripped into overworking.

Whoa whoa there, calm down everyone.

@Zara9: Please wait patiently for the next release. It will come when it will come, which is probably soon. Alyza herself does not know exactly when it will come out, so she can't tell you.

To all the others, please avoid jumping at each others' throats. If you feel like something needs to be addressed, please use the "Report to moderator" button at the bottom of the post. The best course of action is to report and not reply to it.

Go go go Alyza, you can do this ;D

EQ2Alyza will there be a bootleg option made into iro to change location? it was a lifesaver when i used bootleg for a while to steal all those missed train graveyard for example, wo restarting load from that time.

I'm not familiar with that option in Bootleg. I can look into it, but if it's possible then it'll have to wait until after the next release.

Ah now i remember i think it was available through trainer menu.
Upping that especially if DLBPs Reunion wont be compatible with 7H

There's a nice "Modify" button at the top right of your messages, please use it next time you need to add something. ~Vgr
Alyza i just found what i was using and talking about its dlbps trainer - ochu thread, giving the option to teleport party to many places ingame.

http://forums.qhimm.com/index.php?topic=14194.0

Didn't see this option in OP. Can this be part of 7h 2.0 or it can be used separately wo the need to be made into iro/mod?

good day to all staffs and moderators of this wonderful project! i'm just wondering if it's possible to have whitERaven's field model for cloud to have buster sword on his back? 'cause only the "no change" model has the sword on his back in dynamic weapon mod. thanks again for this! this is easier than before when we manually apply mods one by one..  ;D much love and respect!  :)

Yeah its a bummer we cant have both field model options and dynamic sword options, but i guess its not possible now, maybe it will be added later.

Also is it possible for location switch to be added to cheats and tweaks? It was available in trainer menu in bootleg, by using ctrl+f/12345...or shift+f/1234... Something like that...

A quick note, im passed the kalm town. When yuffie scene comes, when choosing party members don't choose anyone else besides tifa and aeris, otherwise aeris and yuffie will get stuck after battle. This is surely related to phs cheat. Probably the same with barret. After i kept tifa and aeris in party during battle, yuffie joined wo glitches.

Mod request:  Any chance you'll be able to add the overworld map options present in Reunion R03e so we can pick between the olde style or the HQ style?  I noticed this option is not present in the current R04c release and hope it isn't forgotten about.  The olde style was a great mod!  Thank you!

I just removed them from movie folder as they bother me as well so the game skips directly to credits screen and reports in red letters that theu are missing. Might use that simpler option.

Hi Alyza
You can add more "Battle Models - Characters" or add from Bootleg to the 7thHeaven? Because in the Bootleg had more Models than 7thHeaven.

Exemple:
Cloud:
AC Style (Grimmy)
New APZ Mature

Aeris:
HQ Aerith
New HQ Aerith

Yuffie:
AC Yuffie (Grimmy)

And others

As for the Jesse mod Avatar issue I might have some insight. When I was working on the mod I had all sorts of trouble getting the avatars to switch. Basically any texture you want to switch must run as a .tex file from a .lgp folder. If you have another avatar running as a png the driver will cache it and you cannot switch it. Also even with cache turned off on the driver it will load the png over the .tex. So you will have to have all the tifa avatars run as .tex. Does that help? Also what about adding the bahamut summon into the catalog. I cannot get any magic.lgp folders to load, but I am working on that. Have you gotten anything to load into 7H from a magic.lgp folder?
Title: Re: [FF7] Update Reports and Mod Requests
Post by: EQ2Alyza on 2016-01-27 04:13:42
So in order for the Runtime Variables to work and the Avatars display correctly between Jessie and Tifa, the Jessie Mod Avatar needs to be a .tex file for the menu_us.lgp folder AND all the Tifa options in Menu - Avatars and Backdrops need to be .tex files for the menu_us.lgp folder?

There are currently no mods in the Catalog that have files for the magic.lgp folder, so it's untested on my end. I'm sure it's just a case of asking Iros to add the magic.lgp for recognition if it's not already.

I was watching some Tifa's Bootleg and 7th Heaven videos recently and I've noticed that the screen flash that happens when landing a critical hit or when using a limit break is absent from the Bootleg mod, but is present in 7th Heaven. So, I'd like to know if the mod that disables the effect is available in 7th Heaven and if it isn't, could it be added in an update?

Did some testing with Menu Overhaul Project MO5C and yep, it disables screen flashes. It's pretty buggy, though. I could get it to run on an old laptop, but not on my PC with NVidia graphics, but that's to be expected since it is an outdated version of the mod.

EDIT: I managed to get it running on the PC, turns out there was a problem with the game converter. So yeah EQ2Alyza, if you can somehow add it to 7thHeaven that'd be friggin awesome  :lol:

Any chance we can replace the instructions and puzzle solutions to use your gamepad buttons/keymapping for prompts. Between my DS3 controller, the PC Mapping, and Function Name, it gets confusing.
https://web.archive.org/web/20150820154346/http://www.cavesofnarshe.com/ff7/buttons.php

I guess what I'm asking is for the button prompts to use either "PS1 Mapping" or maybe 360 Mapping.

Don't know if I'm requesting this correctly or replying correctly. Hopefully doesn't get buried. Anyway, thanks so much to everyone that made the Final Heaven mod possible and for keeping it alive! This is truly incredible and I'm so happy to be playing FFVII again, you have no idea! :)

Request:

The Reunion -Beacause and Menu Overhaul
Is it possible to get this compatible with the steam version? Only the 'No battle boxes" works. Anytime I enable the Beacause and Menu Overhaul, the game crashes when dialogue boxes pop up or I try to load specific menus ie: config. I feel like it's related to it not being able to load the font? Not sure.
(I apologize if this is not a proper request and belongs in the troubleshooting section)

i think you're not using the ff7_bc.exe when using beacause mod.. or the ff7_mo.exe if only the menuoverhaul is the mod you're using.. (beacause if you have break limit)

I was able to correct the jessie avatar issue by removing the configure option in the mod.xml. It just does the same as activating or deactivating the iro, so an unnecessary option. It appears that 7H was getting confused by the "active when" line above the PPV values in the conditional folder section.

Could you put in options to change the world map models for each character specifically, if possible?
I remember there being different models (as in, not just the kaldarasha and MXster ones) that fit with your model choice in bootleg.
Since I have different options for each of the three characters with world models, I'd appreciate increased customization in the amount of options, both in terms of what character has what model types, and the different models in general.
Thanks in advance!

Yes, from in-game, manually editing the config file from the game, or, if using the Steam version, changing that version's keybindings, and then pasting that version's config file into the modded game's directory.
Unless you're referring to keybindings for use with 7thHeaven, in which case you should look for a config file in that program's directory.

You change the keyboard mapping in-game. Start a New Game, open the Menu, then go to Config. The default keyboard mapping is mostly on the Numpad, so if you don't have a Numpad keyboard then you need to have installed the keyboard patch when using the Game Converter.

You don't have to mess around with the config files inside the game folder.

I think I'll try to do smaller updates between shorter periods of time, rather than tackling everything at once over longer periods. I'm not sure how often it will be, but going 6 months between most major updates is something I want to change. Perhaps once a month with smaller updates seems more reasonable.

Thank you very much for your effort. I know how good it feels to make progress and the community appreciates it. Do as you please, but at least we know that you provide us with new updates.

Just to clarify a little with the Sephiroth Story Mod. It needs work still, and enough work that I don't want it released in its current state. Why? Because anyone who plays it will come to me for troubleshooting, and I simply don't have the knowledge to give.


1. There are 5 variations of files I was given.

> Sephiroth - No Weapons Change (vanilla Cloud weapons I assume)
> Sephiroth - Weapons v1
> Sephiroth - Weapons v2
> Safer Sephiroth - Weapons v1
> Safer Sephiroth - Weapons v2

I haven't tested all of them because I can't get them all working. The Sephiroth versions supposedly require the ff7_ss.exe to work (ss = Sephiroth Story), however it is not currently compatible with Menu Overhaul and can only be played with the vanilla game menu. Safer Sephiroth versions supposedly require the ff7_ss_safer.exe, however it is only compatible with Menu Overhaul enabled. Disabling Menu Overhaul will give you the squashed text and window alignment issues in the menus.

2. The field models are not complete. Perhaps they are, but I don't have them with me. Sephiroth has to be converted to each Cloud field model (parachute jump, bike escape, flashbacks, etc.).

3. Some battle animations are broken. I didn't test them all, but I know 2x Cut and 4x Cut don't have the proper animations. There may be others as well.

4. Menu Avatars are not correct. When I load up a previous game save and enter battle with a Cloud, Barrett, and Tifa group, the battle will have Sephiroth, Cloud, Tifa models. But outside battle, the Menu Avatars are still Cloud, Barrett, and Tifa.


These are just the issues I've found when starting a New Game jumping off the train or loading a previous save for 5 minutes of gameplay. I haven't played through the game with it, but can see other issues possibly.

What I propose is this:

1. Reduce this to one version: Safer Sephiroth (one weapon set) I honestly think that too many options can sometimes be a bad thing, and in this case simple is better. The Safer Sephiroth version allows Sephiroth to transform as his last Limit Break (the others are altered as well). I think that should be the main focus behind Sephiroth and his powers as you advance through the game. It's simple, but it makes sense.

2. While I can possibly do model conversions for some of them, I don't know what is to be done during the flashback scenes. There's Nibelheim with Cloud's mother, Tifa, and Sephiroth with Soldier. I don't know...

3. I've done zero modding with animations, so this one can't be fixed by me. The mod author or someone else will have to do this.

4. I think it's a file naming issue, but I'm not 100% sure. I honestly hate testing .tex files lol

3. I've done zero modding with animations, so this one can't be fixed by me. The mod author or someone else will have to do this.

4. I think it's a file naming issue, but I'm not 100% sure. I honestly hate testing .tex files lol

I am happy with one version or another.i dont't care if you take weeks/months. Just from time to time some News about the current status are welcome :)

Could you double-check the version of New Threat included in the catalog?  I was getting a consistent crash following the Air Buster fight, and I resolved the issue by using the stand-alone .iro provided in Sega Chief's release thread: http://forums.qhimm.com/index.php?topic=14938.0 (http://forums.qhimm.com/index.php?topic=14938.0)

Might've just been a corrupted download, but as long as it's not too much trouble... :D

I pulled the files from his .iro link on July 15th. It should be the same one. Was there a change in the battle model for Air Buster? I didn't include any of his models if there were changes between 1.35 and 1.4.

Sorry I took so long for my reply I am unable to check back here often.  Last I checked I gave you the ones that work for 99% percent of the game.  I managed to work around most of the animations.  I figured out some I can use for some that look glitchy.  The only issue is the final battle for some reason it won't work the way I intended.  I wanted the player to get the ultimate weapon for Sephiroth first but I'll probably change that as well.  Please be patient for a little while longer.  Can't do much till I come back from this long trip.

^^Regarding the crash following the fight with airbuster when using the New Threat mod v1.4, I've also been experiencing crashes after Cloud falls.  The scene just transitions into a black screen and the game crashes.

Anyway, what I would love to see personally are:
Advent Children mods: costumes for main characters

Cloud First Tsurugi:  perhaps each piece being a new weapon to equip, and his ultimate weapon would be all piece completed.  Or anything really, I just love the base of the first tsurigi and its final form =D

Allowing retranslation to work with difficulty mods: I'm using New Threat and it kind of sucks I can't use the retranslation along with it.  Cause, lets face it, who actually likes the original translation of ff7?

More field and battle textures/entire game retextured:  not sure if it is just me, but sometimes it feels like not all the fields (3d rendered maps, battle fields, open world fields, etc) are influenced by the mods.  i don't know if it my eyes messing with me

Anyhow, thanks to you all for allowing me to replay this with these mods! =D

Unfortunately, none of these requests are within the boundaries of what can be done here. Anything AC related can't be added because in the past they were ripped from other models, and that's a no-no for copyrighted material.

First Tsurugi is a good idea, but who has made this mod? Requests are for what's already been made, not to request new things to be made. I'm afraid I don't know anyone who can do this.

ReTranslation will always remain separate from other gameplay mods. The amount of files that are shared between ReTranslation and Gameplay mods is in the thousands, and they all have to be manually edited to make compatible with each other. It's too much manual work and can't be done.

I don't think you meant 3d rendered maps lol All the field scenes are pre-rendered 2d images. Each option to choose (Omzy, waifu, satsuki) are complete packages. The same goes for the world texture options. The EQ2Alyza and satsuki options are complete for the battle textures. The 3rd option is a compilation of several unfinished projects that cover most of the battle scenes, but some are not completed. The mod authors would have to come back from their hiatus to finish them. They are also newly made textures, whereas the field and world textures are just upscaled originals with various filters applied.

I wanted to request Nightmare 7 to be put back into the Gameplay mod pack if possible.  I had to reinstall and when I checked again, Nightmare 7 was removed.  I did hear about New Threat being the new top gameplay mod,  but I had started Nightmare 7 already and wanted to go through that, I really enjoyed the theme and difficulty of the game even if it isn't finished.
If there are any links available, that would be great as well if there is an archive for older mods that I can import that would work as well.  Thanks for all your great work guys!

I'm afraid I won't be putting N7 back into the catalog. It's incomplete and the author has abandoned it. Once you leave Midgar, the work on it is done but universal changes still stick from the .bin files and causes crashes.

I might have an old installer or file archive I can link you, but is it really worth it? NT is above and beyond it's level of completion and craftiness.

Post by: infinitstrife on 2016-09-25 07:39:40
Thanks for the reply, I can understand considering the situation the mod was in.  I was reading that N7 was the entire first disc not just Midgar, guess that must've been bad info.  I'll start on NT then, hopefully there are not as many problems, I just remember having to play around with manually installing the hardcore mode separately to get N7 working(crashes from missing enemy data in random places due to scripted enemy fights that normally are not there).   Good thing the FAQ had the uninstaller app to remove old mods before totally reinstalling everything so at least that was painless.   

Thanks again!

So I think we found a way to allow 7th Heaven to read the kernel bin pieces.  The creator said that the vanilla exe looks for bin-gzip file to read them into the game.  If we could implement it into the program then we could do it too and it will help for even more compatibility.  Do you think there is a way to do it?

A small, but important update. New Threat will now be using the November 3rd, 2016 IRO version + the Scene Hotfix from November 7th, 2016. This time I have included all the models from the IRO, so hopefully that fixes the crashes that were reported when entering certain battles that used NT models.

If you still experience crashing from model loads, then move Gameplay - Difficulty and Story to the top of your load order and Launch Game again. After you get past that scene, you can save the game, exit game, and move Gameplay - Difficulty and Story back into its original alphabetical order. Doing this will enable any model mods loaded above it (Battle and Field) to load ingame over the NT models. I don't have the time to play test the entire game, so its up to you all to report which encounters you have to do the reordering to advance the game. I don't expect it to be very many, but any that are reported can be added to the FAQ thread for quick answering with any future posts that I'm sure we'll get.

Remember, to download the Update, all you need to do is Workshop -> Check subscriptions now and the button should change to Update in the Library AND Catalog tabs. Clicking either will start the download and install the patch afterwards.

Based on the current modding community of the entire FF franchise, I see 0% chance of any mods to be developed, let alone a mod manager for it. We are VERY fortunate for SE to allow us to do the work we do here at Qhimm.

Also, any possibility for Dynamic Cloud Weapon support for Clouds Team Avalanche model? Kalderasha does nice models, but for Cloud, that Team Avalanche one is my favorite.

Converting all the Field Models in the Catalog to use Dynamic Cloud Weapons is a thought on my To-Do-List, but I don't know when I'll get around to it. I have other things on the list that take higher priority.

I believe the battle model frame is listed as "siaa" in the battle.lgp
I always used Kimera when swapping the low-res Cloud for the hi-res one and it seemed to work for me.
Although I think there's like 19 other "si.." files in correlation to just the skeleton frame, but I'm not sure
if you need those one's or not.

siaa is the model at the end of the game, yes. But that image looks the same model as the Bloodshot - Classic option, which I believe is just the end game model (siaa) converted to the rest of the game (rtaa).

Hello! I'd like to make 2 small (I hope) mod requests, if I may:

1) Can someone include Tifa's "Bloodshot New" model so that it appears in the Nibelheim flashback, just with that cowboy hat she's wearing? Also, her model reverts back to the default one when she's holding Sephiroth's katana and tries to murder him in the flashback. So I guess, the Hi-res one could be used.

2) Sephiroth's field model changes to the default one in that flashback, when he takes his Masamune out to hit the Mako monster tanks (inside the reactor), and it also changes to the default one when he's reading the Shin-Ra notes in the Shin-Ra mansion basement. Is it possible to have his Hi-Res model (either Weeemus or PRP) while his katana/book are out?

So, after seeing this mod http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=179295659 which replaces the button prompts for the Steam version and after contacting its author and realizing it cannot work with The Reunion (at least the version that is present in the catalog) unless someone actually goes and changes the in-game text, I'd like to request the following 5 things:

1) Put XBox 360 Controller Fix by Thunderpeel2001 (the one I linked above) in the catalog. I am sure lots of people would appreciate it.

2) Have an option for The Reunion + XBox 360 Controller Fix. Not sure if that's too hard to do.

3) Have an option for The Reunion + Hardcore + XBox 360 Controller Fix, or simply include the XBox 360 Controller Fix in The Reunion, because, at least in v3, it's not there, even though DLBP had expressed interest in it, from what I vaguely remember reading in a post.

4) Fix the compatibilty issues that cause crashes when "Hardcore + The Reunion" is enabled. I already posted 2-3 instances of when that happens, and Gjoerulv explains it better in his thread's OP, here: http://forums.qhimm.com/index.php?topic=6818.0

5) Again from Gjoerulv's OP, it looks like there's an important patch that makes Level 4 limit breaks to ignore defenses and that's not present in the catalog. Now, maybe I am mistaken, but I am not sure if it will cause any problems to apply the patch on \ff7_bc.exe, because the only workaround to the crashes I mentioned in no.4 is to temporarily change the option to just "Hardcore" and then change it back. If there are no problems, I can edit this post and delete no.5.

I'd say no.4 is the most important thing I am requesting.

If I can help with any of those with what little skills I have, I'll be happy to do it. :)

I'm sorry, but there will be no downloads outside of 7H right now. If you don't download from within 7H, then you lose two main features 1) Compatibility 2) Automatic Updates

We already have to ask for APP.log, FF7_GC.log, and Profile Details to determine issues, but without the above features working, we'll have to ask questions e.g. "Do you have X mod and Y mod enabled?" or "Is Z mod updated to the latest version?" It's an honest headache to problem solve when you aren't assured about compatibility and updates, so those automatic features help eliminate any need for those kind of questions.

We will continue to work on improving downloads within 7H though. In Catalog 3.0, there will be a 3rd host added that I hope provides better download results for the few that have issues with Google Drive and MEGA.

Hey hey, I'm back!

The More Battle Model options request sounds exciting!

These are questions, as much as requests.. Is there a possibility of any more Vincent models?? It'd be amazing if the whitERaven battle model was also available for on the field. I have a long time LOVE for Vincent, he is my most favourite FF character of all time! :)

Also maybe more Cait Sith models? I prefer the original Cait Sith with the big rounded feet and no nose. I don't actually mind using the PRP model for Cait Sith though, cause he doesn't really need much detail.

Keep up the good work, as always!
It's good to be back too. ^.^

Hi !

Any chance of having Mexico hard mod or/and satstuki progresive mod + reunion included ?

Would be great to be able to configure the reunion mod as DLPB installer allow several customizations.

Would be awesome to be able to active thing independently. Menu overhault, dlpb translation, mexico mod. etc.

thanks

For now, I can't make it to work the reunion mod with mexico mod. When I turn on Reunion, the mexico mod automatically turns disabled.

If anyone has a solution, please enlight me ;)

see ya

7h Heaven is great but it can't make mods compatible which change the same things. The reunion modifies mainly the flevel.lgp, both kernels and scene.bin. While a mod which changes the difficulty of the game modifies mostly the kernels and scene.bin. This could be patched to work with the reunion mod to use the reunion data base, but must be done by the mod authors, since they do know what they changed. If a mod does also change the flevel, it is mostly impossible to create a patch.

The problem is that the texts are implemented into the modules instead being read from a text source. (Like modern games using strings)

wow thanks, didn't know that. What a poor choice though...

What about the satsuki difficulty mod ? Can someone include it ? Actually what I don't like about difficulties mods is that they increase way too much the game difficulty... beside they create new enemies and change the items and materias to fit an increased game challenge. For me, it just changes the game way too much it's like it denatures it.

I asked sega chief of that feature as well since he made such outstanding job w save point menu. I miss save and load state of epsxe...

Hello EQ2Alyza,

I'm huge fan of what you done with 7h.
I would like to know if it's possible to add some mods to your futur update especially this one:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZThKu7PyyOQ
You have all link in the descriptions of his video.
I don't know if you have the right to do that without his permission, but i really like his models characters.
I know i can install this mod myself but with your 7h, we can mix all graphics mods without compatibility problem and make our choice with our preference.
I don't know if it's possible, i just ask.

You have more video on his channel if u want to see more especially in field.

Thank you for everything.

I'm sorry, I dont speak fluent English, I'm French, still sorry for the mistakes.

Continue for your great job

It isn't. The quality is even worse than of the original models (I looked at them but for a different interest), although we have a non-ripped models from other games policy here on Qhimm. Be the author of the model or have the permission from him* to use it for the game is the only way.

*Berserk isn't the creator of the models, only someone who did grab the models and did a very sloppy job to implement them into the game. Though, he has my respect for the amount of work he has done.

I can't put those models in anyways. There's no telling what is original and what is ripped. I don't normally give my opinion on what is good or not, but I honestly don't like them simply because they break any consistent look you get out of the game. I personally prefer to use all satsuki textures alongside Kaldarasha models. They blend together the best with the original game models that haven't been modded yet (most enemies and summons).

That makes sense, but for me I wanted to have at least my party with very detailed models on battle, because I see them for so long and they are close to the cam. So I use Kaldarasha models on field to match the environment and then I use more detailed models on battle, like whitERaven's Cloud / Aerith, cmh175's Cid or Bloodshot's new Tifa. So great. I'm enjoying it.

However, Yuffie has only one other option besides Kaldarasha's edition on battle. It's whiteERaven's Yuffie and I don't like it. Her proportions look so weird, her face looks not nice, idk.

Also, when can we expect the new updates to come out? The NT available in the 1.54 version of 7th Heaven is the 1.4 and NT 1.5 is a big improvement!

So the current NT IRO build Sega Chief has posted on the OP is the latest build. Honestly, all you need to do is just grab it and manually import it into 7th Heaven and it'll run fine.
I've found loading NT at the very bottom of the load order causes no conflicting issues with other mods.

The issue that I've been having is that even with NT on the bottom, it is overwriting some of the files in my original folder (like char.lgp and world.lgp) and causing crashes or assets in the original folder to not to load correctly. I've been talking to Sega Chief and we have most of the kinks sorted out, I just don't want to be so useless and keep bothering him. If there's a way to unpack the IRO folder, I am sure I can isolate the exact conflicting files and sort it out myself.
