[REL] Tonberry: Enhanced v2.04 by JeMaCheHi (aka Jay C) and mavirick UPDATED!

What's new?:
2.04:
- Persistent textures - modders now have the ability to designate textures as "persistent," meaning they will never be removed from the cache.
- Significant performance improvements - Tonberry should be running faster than ever due to some major cache optimizations and an improvement to the way we handle the core textures.
**cache_size should be no more than 250 to prevent memory overflow exceptions

Known issues:
- The Steam overlay is still not supported by Tonberry and should be either disabled or circumvented using Mcindus' GeDoSaTo configuration

Hey Guys, I'm having a problem with the textures and i'm not sure what to do.
I'm upto the Lunar Base part, And everyone in a space suit is all messed up, there eyes are on there crutch and body parts are all jumbled.
But that's only a small problem, My problem is when i try to save Rinoa from space, Her texture doesn't show up, So i can't see where i'm supposed to move as she's not in the screen
Does anyone have any idea on how i can fix this? it's not possible to move forward from this spot when she's stuck in space lol

--- Rinoa was lost in space forever

That would be Rebirth Flame. I've posted a download for v1.1. Download it if you haven't and use the updated hashmap. You also need to delete the objmap or disable it. This will solve all those problems.

Great. And if you run into any issues regarding character and NPC textures, please let me know on that thread so I can promptly try and fix them.

Get rid of "char_textures_obj" because that is actually an older version of Rebirth Flame before it was moved to it's own thread and took on the new name.

Hi.

I have the original PC release, and therefor haven't bothered with buying the steam release. Would these mods work with the original PC release, or is steam for some reason required to make these mods work?

I believe you'd be able to use RaW and GeDoSaTo (if you set that up on your own). The ones involving textures use Tonberry, which to my knowledge, only works with the Steam version.

Project NORG by Damocles233

This should be added to the FMVs section! I personally like these a tad better than the others listed. Only issue with his download is that you would have to rename the videos yourself. I used a program called 'Bulk Rename Utility' to do this myself in about 5 minutes (could have been a lot quicker if I knew right off the bat how to use this program) or so.

Not sure I can do this. If not sorry; a mod can remove this part if need be. But HERE is a download link to the FMVs with all of them renamed so you can just copy them over into your movies folder. It's slightly bigger than the one Damocles233 provides. My guess is because I added a 100% recovery record to the RAR file.

Hey, so I'm noticing that a fair number of these are more "multiple choice" than "essential". I know it might be more work than is okay to ask, but is there a way to get a short summary of what each mod does and which ones are compatible/which replace the same thing? Or, barring that, a sort of "starter pack" of the most standard/baseline mods?

Are these actually better than the ones steam has done? Because I tried Kayael's and steams look better. I didn't try Leonhart's 1080p ones or Project Norg.

Hi guys!

How are you? Lot of time /w computer!
I have to coment one problem that I have in my new computer. I've installed Rebirth by Flame and Seed Reborn, but while i'm playing a message error appears, the screen crashes and I have to close the game. I think that maybe is Seed Reborn, because when screen crashes the texts fails and I can't see nothing. Someone have an idea that what's happening?

Thank you! And nice to see you again!

SOLVED.

I wouldn't really call Tonberry a system, more like a texture replacer.
You download Tonberry, put the files and folders in your FF8 directory, and put hashmaps, objmaps, and textures in the respective folders.
Unfortunately, one of the main modders for this, Mcindus, has had his downloads removed due to the domain going down, but there should be some mirrors, and he is trying to get the files back up.
