It's not that easy as you guys may think it is. First reason the battle models have a different, often higher count of bones. Another reason is that issues of a mesh might not appear in battle but in the field because of the now in real-time calculated light. Often this are wrong face normals and bad placed polygons which alter the appearance of a model drastically.

But to answer the question you need to use kimera and have to manually replace the bone pieces of a field model with the one of the battle model.

That's a very good plan. I also want to make my model's as close as possible to the original game before I will make some new (as example I would like to make some models based on the avatars here on qhimm. But *pssst* that's a secret  :wink:).

It's the only place where this track is played.

My favorite version of One Winged Angel is this:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6GFA26UoI2o&t=
Not so much the strange intro but when the music plays it is gorgeous. It gives the song something light, it's a bit like a dance*.

I guess this topic can be closed, because I can't see any constructive criticism from any side.
@Incinerator it's sad that they closed your project but better now than later when you had put too much work into it. For the future just stay away from things that belongs to the Final Fantasy universe or from where SE is the IP holder (I guess the ATB system belongs to that, too). The UE3 Chrono Trigger project was closed even though it was noncommercial. You can say that it is inspired by Final Fantasy, but that's all.
And who knows, might be that some of us will also get a nice letter from SE when they release the first episode of there FF7 reboot. Just to erase the competition of their own game.

If you ever come across the main theme and its shorter version, don't do the same mistake as SE/DotEmu did with the rerelease. The shorter track does loop in the middle three times (as far as I have counted it) on the psx version. https://youtu.be/ih7s1e55tZI?t=999
Also, cintro is different from its full version. The bell does ring only every 12 seconds and not 6.

The thing is that Final Fantasy is a registered trademark. You may can name a mod after it but once you make profit with something which is called Final Fantasy you walk on very thin ice. I can ensure you if Kickstarter doesn't close your project SE will as soon as they see that someone use the name of their most famous franchise. Also they can argument that your project did harm the name of the franchise and then things can go ugly.

There is a reason why you often see mods and tools which credits the different companies for the products which where used.

Though, I still wish you luck with your project and many bakers but you should give it another name for your own sake.

I haven't update my ChaOS for 7H long time. But I prepared my Steam release for 7H, so you could put the folder into 7H mods folder. But it's not specially made for 7H, but an update is on the way.

FF7 can in fact have semi transparency. I have personally imported a model of the Brotherhood from FFX, with transparent blade. The method to do it was a bit annoying. Have to set transparency in gimp and in blender before converting the files back to p. then play around in kimera a bit and youll eventually get a decent result. The same can be done for battles, which I will be doing once I get around to fixing/enhancing my current work.

That doesn't count for the backgrounds. There are layers which simply have no transparency and only opaque or not opaque are possible. The effect layers can be transparent, BUT only if they have no changing in the transparency - the game actually reduce the brightness of a pallet, else it can't be displayed due to the bigger pallet of the upscaled texture. Though, Aali's driver has generally a problem to replace these textures correctly, even if you replace them with the default resolution.

As far as I have investigated it, these are midi files converted from the PSX midi. I can't say if the parameters are correct since the PSX SPU does modify them in real time depending on the info it gets from the game (AKAO instructions I guess).
There are tools to rip them from the psx game, but honestly I have no experience with those things.

I think you can get the midi of the psx from this site: https://musical-artifacts.com/artifacts/588

I finished my work on Vincent. Here you can get the models:

I will update my mod on Steam soon, but then I need a break.

It can't be the CPU if the original graphics mode does fix his problem. As far as I know if you lower the resolution the more stress you take from GPU and put a bit of it on the CPU.

The model for the field is ready and the battle model is half done, though in its current state it is much better as my first version I made years ago.

Refraction is good but the effect is too strong. The strength of refraction depends on the thickness of the glass. Currently it looks like an aquarium.

Thanks for the kind words.

Meanwhile, I started to add some fake lighting by hand.

17
The first step is done.

Time for me to port it to the game.

There are two ways. First way delete all groups except of one and save it as a new file do this with all groups until you have separated them. Then load the file in the order you need them step by step into Kimera with the add part to the bone button. Then save the model and merge the parts if Kimera ask you to do that. The problem is that Kimera likes to play Tabula Rasa with the meshes when it should merge them.
The second way involves a bit more work but it will work more reliable. Separate the files as I described it above. Then bitrun to convert the files to 3ds files and after that you need p creator to rebuild the p file from the 3ds files.

For the correct blinking behaviour you need three groups with textures. The game looks for the first textured group in the hierarchy the mesh has and replaces it with the left closed eye. Then it looks for the next group for the right eye and at last it replaces the third group if present with the mouth.

FF9?

I only tested a few effects  and find it pretty amazing. Sadly the like button works only once every 24 hours.

Well we could make smaller resolution later anytime. Isn't downscaling also a way to reduce noise in a render?

This is sadly the curse of an artist. If the "Muse" does left you, you need something different to do to get her back. I need nearly a year to continue my work on Vincent again.
In the meantime I have started to sort some animations of Cloud and have converted some music from Hugo Franca (Bitsymphony). Oh and I started to look on full textured models.

So Moddershaven seems to down. But I'm happy that you share your incredible work here.
