Already on a fresh install into the default path for Win 7 and the Bootleg.exe is in with the mods.

Do the mod files need to be extracted or still zipped?  (tried both)
Do I need to have all the programs (kimera, wallmarket, etc) installed/unzipped?  If so, then where to?
Do all the mod files and Bootleg.exe need to be on the same drive/partition as the FF7 install?
Do I need to have the mods I don't want to install in the folder with the mods in it?  EX: Do I need the V2 of the limit break mod if I only want V3?
In the readme the programs list includes ff7_1.02.zip and ff7_102.zip.  I'm assuming these are redundant of the 1.02 patch folder but the one in your mod.html is named ff7102zx.zip do i need to change the name?

Keep the file names the same, straight from the downloads
ff7102zx.zip is all you need for the 1.02 patch
you do not unzip / unrar the files

It should look like this

At least one of the patch zips is required for Bootleg.exe to run.  Any of these files will work:ff7_1.02.zip, ff7_102.zip or ff7102zx.zip.

Bootleg.exe will attempt to continue running if it can't find a mod file, but there might be anomalies.
There is a warning message if something isn't found.

The Bootleg installer isn't really designed to pick and choose... it's more of a complete experience.

Figured it out, all the files need to be on the same drive/partition as the game install.  Thanks for the help guys.

I found a couple of small flaws with Bloodshot's Hi Quality Bike model; a merchant has a piece of Cloud for an arm.  There's an issue with young the Aerith model losing a texture when HQ Aerith is installed.  So far, the glitches are only cosmetic.  I'll have things fixed in the next version.
I'm also working the PRP into the mix.  There are quite a few more field and world models to add. 
With the addition of the PRP, nearly all of the field models are redone!
FF7Music is now at version 1.51.9, so I need to update it in the Bootleg.
I'm considering adding an option to install all the FF7 Tools as well.

Nickblames,
Awesome!  Now you can help test this thing out too . . .

If anyone find some other tidbit to cram in, please let me know!
Anyone know how 'anycd' works and whether it's worth including?
What about the Sephiroth mod?

Why does the Remix have such a bad reputation?  It does much more than just add the PRP models.  Besides, it's not a simple task to properly extract and install the PRP models.  Everything is lumped together!  Sure, renaming the PRP lgp's might appear to work, but that's just sloppy.  Who wants all those extra files  floating around in there!

I've sorted through the PRP installer and have a working list of models not already in the Remix.  The new Bootleg is nearly ready for release.

Removing the Remix from the list of essential mods is still not feasible.  The Remix is outdated and breaks some stuff, but it does a great job of installing essentials like the PRP.  Plus, the Remix includes many small fixes and tweaks not available anywhere else.  Not using the Remix would require that I redo everything it already does so well.

On a side note, what's your favorite Cloud model for field or battle?

I think your average modder just wants a 'Download - Install - Play' solution and having to deal with all the extra stuff just piles on too much.  Luckily for us you came along and took most of the guesswork out of it.

Also, if you don't want extra files floating around you might want to contact Magochocobo and find out definitively if you need both the .png's and the .lgp's.  From everything I've read it seams like the .lgp's are no longer necessary.

APZ Freak still has the best around but unfortunately he hasn't finished the new cannon Cloud just yet so I think whatever version is in the Remix is the best we've got.

Good work and thanks again for putting all this together.

PS - What settings do you personally prefer when installing this?

for an easier download handling i put all the links in an jdownloader-container. http://www.megaupload.com/?d=DOCOSK11
the gamefront-mirrors aren't included because they are actually not working. you have to load them seperately

Okay, I've updated the link with Bootleg 0001 Beta.
Check the first page.

I tweaked a few things: added extra PRP models, updated FF7Music installer, fixed Bloodshot's HQMB, fixed HQ Aerith, corrected Avalanche install order, better integrated Hardcore Mod with Aeris Revival, added alternate menu backgrounds and more.

I'm still working on completely combining Aeris Revival with the Hardcore Mod.  There are 28 scene files in flevel.lgp that overlap between these mods.  Right now, the Hardcore Mod takes precedence when using both mods together.  I haven't tested the impact this has on gameplay.  There is no conflict when using Aeris Revival without the Hardcore Mod.

The settings I use most often for Bootleg 0001 Beta are:
    bootleg /c0 /s0 /p2 /r0 /n1 /a1 /v1 /h1 /l5 /m1 /x1

The PRP installer is really crummy.  If people have problems using the PRP installer, I'll move the few models into the bootleg itself.

I would use the Remix patcher but it changes the script of the AI and changes the stats/equipment the characters start with. For example, when using the Remix patcher, Barret starts with a Protect Vest.

Yeah, the Remastered changes are in:
    ./data/kernel/kernel.bin
    ./data/kernel/kernel2.bin
    ./data/battle/scene.bin

Just copy and replace those files with files from a fresh install of FF7 and you'll be back to vanilla.
I've a bit more work to do to incorporate changes from the Menu Overhaul, Hardcore Mod and Aeris Revival in various combinations.

Let me know if the PRP installer works.  The original installer seems to have some major issues.  I might have to come up with another solution.

I already have another update that has an option to not use the remastered AI, stats and equipment from the Remix.
I didn't realize there was a demand for the vanilla version.

Great, I just noticed that the last release of FF7Music 1519 is bugged and there's a hot patch.
Now I gotta either revert to FF7Music 1518 or work in the hot patch somehow...
I took the link down because none of the launchers work after FF7Music breaks everything.


Good, Covarr corrected the bug and left the filename the same.  I downloaded FF7Music 1519 again and it works.
BTW, did you notice that you can switch between all the soundtracks, including the Remix, using FF7Music?
I'm slowly learning how to edit models.  Now I want to tackle repairing the rest of the Rebuilded models.

You said you added the new PRP models right?

I saw this in the readme
Version History:

.0001BETA
    Added additional Phoenix Rejuvenation Project field models

Does that mean i need to download the prp, or are they included in the bootleg.exe?

You'll need to download the PRP installer with this version.
The PRP installer is so crummy, I'm seriously considering including the models in the Bootleg.
Give a few minutes, and I'll update the Bootleg to include the models. The installer barely works and leaves garbage behind in the FF7 folder.

Not very many.  Dahfa's young Aerith models are better, so I didn't bother with the PRP versions.  New models include: the guy with the rifle at the gun range, all of the materia, barrels, a dragon, a chocobo, the boy in glasses, the lady in purple, the knight, the dragon, the helicopter, a soccer ball, a basket ball, and the monster that comes out of the wall.  I only worked on field models this time.  I think the rest were already in the Remix, but I have a bit more research to do.  I notice some people in the PRP thread are working on it.  I'll bootleg their findings!

Bootleg 0001BETA3 integrates the models.  Download it again because I messed up the first try. The only new mod to download is the newest ff7music_install_1519.exe

i also found a bug in model euaf.hrc it has no eyes in its face :-D

ps: does anyone know why the original game provides only 12.000 files in char.lgp and the remixed/bootlegged more than 14.500 files? also the models have names up to "h", but in original only to "e" or something like that :-O

The current version of PRP is 1.1!

Model euaf.hrc looks the same way in a vanilla install of FF7.
I guess she was never meant to have a face.
Weird.
Usually when a model is missing the face texture, there's a white box where the eyes and mouth should go.

I don't see any change from the original in the models: bxjb.hrc, byba.hrc, bybf.hrc, bycd.hrc, dhhf.hrc, ebjf.hrc, ecae.hrc, eoce.hrc, fgec.hrc, fgfb.hrc, grcc.hrc, guhc.hrc, guib.hrc, gvae.hrc, hagb.hrc.

Plus, there are quite a few updated models not in that list.
