Snowboard? :P

The drivers maximum is 1024 MB ram, maybe  it can be set higher, but Aali didn't  recommended it and nobody has tested  it.  When the limit is reached  then some textures aren't  correctly displayed, usually  the UI  gets messed up.

The source has to fit without scrolling  320x240. But that's  not the main  problem  of the images. The BGs have a very small color variety and were also made for the psx color system. This makes upscaling them so complicated. However new rendered BGs have a lot more information which results in better results when using an upscale technique, even though improvements would be minor. But I think the difference of an BG which was made for 4k or an image which was upscaled from 2k to 4k is also minor. And we shouldn't  forget that Aali's driver has also a limit. Too much high resolution textures my lead to wrong displayed textures.

Aali's driver has also a dump texture option.  But I don't  know  what the  right command was  in the opengl.cfg.

I still think that you should use blender for the rendering. There is a tool for SketchUp called BlendUp  -
Sadly it's not free, but blender has some real good functions one thing is filmic blender ( which calculates light more natural, but more important is the denoise tool for rendering which works wonders even with a small amount of render cycles.  (

Is that really new? Looks like a re-created fan made model with the remake as basic. The model doesn't even look closer to the original design as Nomura said it will. So I think this are "fake news".

As far as I know Tom's installer isn't needed anymore and you should be able to install the game through its own installer. You could also try to use the Gamesconverter, this could very likely fix your problem with the game.

I think it will look better when a good subsurface scattering is added to the grass. But a displacement map could also work well.

It looks very good, but the grass could need some variation. In the middle distance it looks very repetitive. Maybe you could some muddy texture in the chocobo pen. A small lake or something where they could get something to drink (and eat) would be a great addition to the scene.

If you want to implement that 360 degree field movement (or was it 255), I have no qualms immediately scanning through all of the field files and fixing the default directions.

Also, great to see you posting again, I had wondered what happened.

I help you when you work on it. I think it will be easier if I tell you the value for a scene rather than letting you import it into the field.

You become better with the wood textures on the furniture.

Be patient. We can't all be online all the time, and nagging will make us want to help you less, and may lead to warnings.

Stupid: HELP ME!!

Smart: Help required with getting model into FF7

Smarter: FF7 model importing issues - problem with assigning textures.

The community has become quite a bit silence, since the remake of FF7 was announced and the moding community around FF8 wasn't really huge from begin with.  It may sound sad but qhimm.forums slowly dies in regard to active moder. Probably most of the fans of the original FF PC games becomes older and therefore the interest and the willingness to spend time for it does also slowly dying.

What I want to say is that your post isn't the first one which didn't get help and it isn't the last one. And in regard to FF8 it's much higher.

You don't need to deal with the other languages. The GamesConverter main purpose was actually to uniform the different versions to use the English file system. So we have the files to patch the game language.

The exe is a packed rar archiv. You can open it with WinRAR or 7zip.

In the script itself. Usually you call a window and then the text it should display.

My way of doing it allows for a degree of leniency but is more catered to entire mods that are self contained - because I think that's the best way of doing it.  7H is nice but it adds so many issues and will never manage to work out all the inconsistencies.

My way will be open source if using aali's driver code.  It's a fairly simple system that makes use of whole lgp reads and directmode.

The only issue we have is the need of the downpatch. Most problems occurs there. Once Aali's driver works with the re-release and 7H works with FF7_en.exe a lot of the troubleshooting will be gone.
7H does a very good job to increase compatibility between mods. If I want to change only one model I can do it for every mod. It also allows breaking through the limitations of the game. We could make for example an ingame difficulty selection by swapping scene.bin through another or make the early areas enemies harder when Meteor appears.
I don't think that the new modmanager will replace 7H, but I could imangine that 7H in return could make use of it. For example files which doesn't need to be activated through a certain condition, could be written to the new modmanagers folder and 7H takes care only of the conditional files. This may decrease load times when many mods are selected.

Could it be that your firewall is blocking 7H to get internet access?

C2 could be the pan or the marker if it is a stereo or mono effect. At last I can't see in the list that this is handled somewhere.

It would be interesting to see, if we can implement your tool into the game to play the sound. It is also interesting for FF9. And I'm pretty sure FF8 has also problems with playing the correct sound effects even though nobody has complained about it yet.

As far as I know EQ2Alyza has a release candidate of a newer version, but waits as everyone one here, for the next version of the Reunion. Depending on the mod manager which comes with the Reunion 7H needs adjustments. However, I would also like to take a look on both managers and see how compatible they are.

You can open it with WinRAR or It's just an archive with a batch file and some folders in it.

Looks like someone has beaten your mod.

The problem is, when someone manages it to share the game this way and your hosted files are part of it, then you get also a problem with the law even if you host the files for an entirely different purpose. But as the moding guides on Steam has proven it, SE has currently now interest in this game other than remaking it for the next five years. There are plenty of copy-n-paste mods there.

Not really, if I understand Shunsq correctly then the game use int var to calculate the 3D. So the function needs to be rewritten with float or double precision. I probably said this but it might be a good idea to ask Kaldaien on steam if he has an idea how to deal with this. He seems to be very competent with working on graphic interfaces and with the source of Aali's driver he may have more possibilities to hack the game.
