I ran the bootleg installer fine but there was some errors in the log.

At first, I didn't disable MS Security Essentials so it quarantined couple of files so after installation, there were errors in the logs. Stupid of me for not saving them.

So I ran the bootleg installer second time after disabling MS Security Essentials.

These are the errors I received in the log after the installation.

Error in startmap: Incorrect number of entries: 2/11
Error in blackbg2: Incorrect number of entries: 24/42
Error in blackbg3: Incorrect number of entries: 18/28
Error in blackbg4: Incorrect number of entries: 54/72
Error in blackbg7: Incorrect number of entries: 16/25
Error in blackbgi: Incorrect number of entries: 10/17
Error in blackbgk: Incorrect number of entries: 16/21
Error in elminn_1: Incorrect number of entries: 16/17

Error in elminn_1: Incorrect number of entries: 16/17
Error in psdun_2: Incorrect number of entries: 9/10


min51_1 patch failed, not original script
chrin_2 patch failed, not original script
ealin_2 patch failed, not original script
blin67_2 patch failed, not original script
elmin4_2 patch failed, not original script
psdun_2 patch failed, not original script
games_2 patch failed, not original script
gongaga patch failed, not original script
goson patch failed, not original script
cosin1_1 patch failed, not original script
kuro_4 patch failed, not original script
lastmap patch failed, not original script

Are they important or can the game run fine with those errors?

I got to the first save and the game ran fine so far but I'm afraid it'll crash later after some important part.

Those are common errors that do not effect the gameplay. I have played through the entire game with those, and it went just fine.

How to enable FF7Music:

- Open FF7Music.exe from the installation folder.

- Click on Configure.

- Go to the Files tab.

- Under Profile, select the music you chose from Bootleg.

- Save and Exit.

Also, run FF7Config.exe as administrator and configure the correct sound and MIDI devices.
You should also make sure the sound mixer volume levels for the device, applications and FF7.exe are turned up.

e1sunz, if you were asking me how I found out about this site, it was by luck watching youtube videos. I've been a member quiet a while just lurking around trying mods, but this is the first time I've tried multiple mods at one time! The game runs perfectly and the mods are fantastic, it's insane the amount of customization when installing the mods too. The people involved really are incredible!

Hey guys i'm having a spot of trouble here...I've managed to get all my other mods downloaded ok and they're all green. There's just two I can't seem to get right though.

The first is ff7_opengl-0.7.11b.zip I've tried leaving it unzipped like in the tutorial description and it never showed up so I tried unzipping it and that didn't work either, it just stays red.

The second one i'm having bother with is the Trish(aka) Mike's model pack I've tried all 3 download options for it (main, alt and the one from the big list) But It keeps coming up the file cannot be found, is there another place I can download it from or am I doing something wrong?

This is my first time trying out mods so i'm not a whole lot sure what i'm doing but I seemed to have managed to get the rest going fine. I'm really excited to play through FF7 again wiht all the cool textures and stuff so any help would be much appreciated, thanks.

Check the name it needs to be the same as in the modlist, with the Trish(aka) Mike's model pack  your missing an underscore before the s! ( "_s") Check with the mod list in the bootleg to be sure.

Some systems don't like fullscreen mode.
Turn Fullscreen off.  Set the desired resolution.  Use the window position to hide the border around the window.
You can use Bootloader to easily alter the settings.

icepick314,
Those errors are normal for this version.  The Menu Overhaul ReTranslation is not completely compatible with mods like Aeris revival and Hardcore.  Those errors just mean that some scenes won't have the ReTranslated text.  The game will run fine.

Hey, thanks for being patient with me. Or not. I got the resolution sorted with trial and error, got my game loaded up all is well except a few things. Nothing thats stopping the game from working just a few pet peeves really.

So far what i've noticed, for my save points I chose the crisis core one, (Zacks Buster sword with the feathers swirling round it.) But for some reason I just have the default one in the game. I have checked bootleg to make sure my choices have saved which they have and my mods are all still green on the list so my selection should've been taken into account there.

Along the same lines I also chose Mikes blue flames for my limit break. (Advent style!) but again I just have the default orange vase shaped limit flames. I'm running Bootleg again just incase something didn't install right. Do you think that might be the case?

Everything else so far is ok, characters are well proportioned textures look smoother etc, it's just those few key choices that never seemed to mke it through. Do you think reinstalling will resolve those issues?

Edit; I know what's gone wrong it's the Trish AKA Mike file, for whatever reason it's not showing up properly is there another location I can download it from? I tried downloading it again from the big list of mods but it keeps saying it's not found...

Whoa, six posts in a row? We have an edit button for a reason. I suggest you give the rules a quick read, especially this one:

Hi everyone,

I'm astonished to see such an amazing work done for Final Fantasy VII. Thanks for everything and for Bootleg.

I just finished downloading every mod Bootleg needed for everything I choosed, then, everything goes wrong :



Here's my system :
OS : Windows 7 64-bit.
C:\ : System.
D:\ : Data storage.
Antivirus / Firewall : Kaspersky PURE 9.1.0.124 (the same problem happens when I kill him)

And my BFE config :


Thanks in advance if anyone can help me.

Try installing your game on the C: drive ==> C:\Jeux\FF7

Thanks for answering (I just saw the correct topic to post such questions, I'm sorry).

I did install FF7 in "C:\Jeux\FF7", but then, I tried to install it to D:\Jeux\FF7, and it's the same :(. I even followed your screencaps (http://tinyurl.com/843cwcf) by installing the mods in "C:\Jeux\FF7\Bootleg0038".

Maybe I'm doing something wrong here :
1- I run Bootleg.exe by clicking "Run Bootleg" in BFE. It's ok, right ?
2- I can leave both "FF7 Install Image" fields empty ?

About the FF7 Install Image, when I launch Bootleg, it says it can't find ff7.exe... because he created another directory "FF7" witch can only fail : C:\Jeux\FF7\FF7...

 I don't know what on Earth is happening there.

I'm new to the whole modding thing and I have a problem when I run the bootleg.  When I check the modlisting everything is either yellow or green.  After running the mod it gets "stuck" at Updating Avalanche GUI.. Now I say "stuck" because its been running for going on 2 hours and is still at the same spot.  The program isn't freezing it isn't giving me an error message hasn't failed.  I guess the question is what is wrong?  What do I do?

Check that all your mods with an exe (Avalanche GUI, FF7Music etc) aren't blocked :

Right click > Properties > Unblock.

Sadly, it didn't solve my problem but I'm pretty sure it will help you.

The .exe was blocked Lutherian would you suggest I restart the bootlegger?

It depends on your system. My old one took 15-20mins, but my new one now takes only a few minutes.

If you want all models to be updated you should select in the model section 'Bootlegged'
Or use the UMI:
