can't you add support for 1024x768 too for people without good monitors?

Not possible without putting in a lot of effort.
I might consider it sometime in the future.
I'm working on ironing out all the bugs first.

Will post links to some new screenshots sometimes soon.

IS anything being done about the backgrounds or the movies?
Or is this just forcing FFVII to pointresize everything even higher than before? ^^;;

Nice, high res super deformed... OMG That's awesome!

The progress in the high res mod is looking good, albeit the text is indeed quite wonky.  Lovely stuff, and I hope the progress is going smooth.  Nice, crisp high res models, with crisper models and... then my heart froze for a beat or two as I saw a screen in high res during the date with the battle model conversion mod.  Pure bliss!  I think I will drool over that pic for a half hour now.

Fixed most of the text now.
I figured out how to fix a whole bunch of texture problems, just need to actually get some free time to do it.
Posted a new picture of the fixed textures in battle.

Different about what? If you mean the project, compared to the original FF7, then I'd say the fact that it's running in 1024x768 would qualify as "different". :P

x, you're an arse =P
Anyway, to see a difference, do this..

take a screenshot.  Look at teh default size.

Now look at the pics posted in this thread, and make sure you have any "image resized to fit page" option turned off in your web browser.  ANyone with half a brain cell will isntantly realize that these new pics are twice the size of the one you made.  Plus, they look smoother.

So shush.

Sorry, it's just that we find newbies silly =)

Well, ok, i'll draw you a picture...

Normal ff7 screen size:

||||||||||
||||||||||
||||||||||

New screen size with this mod:


||||||||||||||||||||
||||||||||||||||||||
||||||||||||||||||||
||||||||||||||||||||
||||||||||||||||||||
||||||||||||||||||||


Now, your monitor stays the same size.  So what this means is that more visual data is being packed into a smaller space, which adds more detail.

In ff7s default resolution, you can only see 640 pixels across the screen.  On a large enough monitor, you can actually squint and count them across.  Of course backgrounds are pre-rendered, so you don't see much difference there.  However, the 3d models end up going from this:



to this:



I edited the second pic to make my point.  basically, in smaller resolutions, each pixel is bigger, and eats up on fine detail.

Like i said, chek your browser settings: There may be an option turned on whcih changes image sizes to fit your screen, in which case you won't see much of a difference.
