Maybe, maybe not. I haven't experimented with setting it to 2 in the different modules. With Aali's driver 2 results in not rendering the p-file on field. Maybe some magic files do use different values for certain effects, maybe it is used to activate some material effects, which were planed but not implemented. All I know is that the value has to be 1 and I should avoid too long file names or I got trouble with the rerelease. For Aali's driver it doesn't matter if it is 0 or 1 it will always be handled as 1. And I never knew that this value exist if we hadn't had the problems with my models in MakouReactor in the first place.

In other news.... Aali's driver code is largely worthless to me in terms of expanding on his own code.  First, C is crap (compared to Delphi, the syntax is a joke - and way way over complicated).  Second, he wrote the code and it's very hard to follow (as it usually is when you are following code you didn't write).  Third. All the graphical work he's done is a mystery to anyone who doesn't understand opengl.  So it's a no go there.  Even Luksy is thinking of refactoring it all, so he can follow it.

But the good news is that
1.  It should be fairly easy to add Aali's dll to Steam version
2. The new modding idea I had can be added to Aali's dll, since he's already done all the lgp / modpath / direct mode work.  All I'd need to do is work my design to it.
3. I can add option for his fps limiter, so when using my mod, it can be disabled.  My mod requires that I use my own fps limiters.  Plus I've fixed a lot more than Aali's driver has regardless.  But perhaps I can get my fixes ported over also. 

There's a lot to think about.  And it needs to be resolved before I release The Reunion R06

Another piece of text that was flagged up and fixed. Flagged numerous times actually, but we got there in the end.  Even Kaldarasha played a part.

Original:
“Hey!
   President Rufus came here yesterday.”
------------------------------
“He used to be the President's little boy.
   We nicknamed him the little Prez!”{NEW}
“He didn't look much different
   than the surfers on the beach.”

R06
“Did you hear?
  President Rufus visited yesterday.”
------------------------------
“He’s Shinra’s son,all right.
  When he was younger,we
  nicknamed him ‘President
  Brat’!”{NEW}
“He hasn’t changed,either.
  He’d fit in nicely with the
  stuck-up surfers here.”

Hi DLPB, long time no see.

Maybe this is being fixed already, but let me point it out:

Blue materias found message should have the {CYAN} code instead of the {BLUE} code, as the materia model itself is more cyan than blue. Don't you think?

Regards

The materia is meant to be blue - not cyan.  I guess the fault lies in the materia graphic on field, but it's definitely blue :P

Isn't that...a bug? :D Or maybe blue is hard to see in the field maps...

Ha!  I dunno.... I always seen it on screen as blue.  But I'll have a check when I get chance.

Hello! I have a weird technical problem and I can't seem to find any solution. Sorry if this isn't the right place to post.

I have a bunch of mods installed through 7th heaven, but I'm fairly sure This mod is the culprit. Basically, when I'm in combat, and I go into the magic menu, there's several spaces in between each spell. So like, it'll say "thunder", then maybe 4 spaces down the next spell "cure" or whatever. So if a character has several spells I have to scroll a lot.

Does anyone know about this problem? Did I install something wrong?

I dunno if everyone else has the week off, but: how are you "fairly sure"? Does it happen with this mod alone, installed in the recommended fashion? If not, this mod is not the culprit.

It might be some combination of mods (you can fiddle about uninstalling half your mods, then half the remainder, etc) but as you'll see from page 1, compatibility with other mods is not a major concern for this one.

If using 7th heaven, bug reports here are as useful as a fart in a Jacuzzi.  I don't support other mods.  It says so on the first post.

Hi DLPB, hope everything good in real life!

I wanna start again FFVII with real translation (yours) as first time, shall I go ahead with R05 or better wait new version for significant differences?

I would say wait.  For sure.

R06 will be much more rounded, but R07 will be the finalized version.  Charlie Beer is currently doing a proof check:

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1jcnXS15WprRsqaVQ_HFwZSaz_XV-H39Yru_GRpkUT0w/edit#gid=914772850

This will give you an idea of how many corrections have been made.

I had a look and it's fantastic! You guys put a lot of effort in it, behind every single line there is huge work.

I will definitely wait. Look forward to play it!
