btw Midgar, nice to see your avatar growing

Thanks Chaoscontrol, but I think this is the maximum size it will ever be, maybe switch a couple characters.

You have very good programming skills dziugo! I look forward to whatever you will make later. Is it possible to make a summons movies shortener? I hate having to wait so long for a lot of movies...
Thanks!

Misc patch added - LuckyTifa. See the first post in this thread for download link.

Info:

It will patch your ff7.exe so Tifa will always get "Yeah!" in her limit break. That's all.

Additional info:

Code patched at:
Code: [Select]
0x006E3778:
0xB1 0x02 0x90 0x90 0x90 0x90 0x90

0x006E31E8:
0xB0 0x02 0x90 0x90 0x90 0x90 0x90

0x006E34A0:
0xB0 0x02 0x90 0x90 0x90 0x90 0x90

It can also be done by editing the data files, but I'm too lazy to do that.

This is a bit of a blantant bump, but you really should put links up to your software in the Compilation of Programs section, the thread keeps disapearing way down the bottom.

Hey, i was using the skip movie function & i skipped a movie, now clouds running around like his hyper or something.. hehe.

"Misssing file: ff7.exe
Sorry, no patching today.
Press any Key to continue..."

:(

What do I do?

Move the downloaded files to your FF7 directory, so the patcher can find your ff7.exe

Another misc patch added - LuckyCaitSith. Download it in the first post of this thread

Info:

After applying it to your ff7.exe, you get a possibility to manipulate Cait Sith's "The Slots Limit Break". How to do it?

 - (essential) - activate the limit
 - use <MENU> button to activate/deactivate cheating mode
 - use <LEFT> and <RIGHT> to navigate to the slot you wish to change
 - use <DOWN> to change the current slot

The current slot has a little white box around it (only visible in cheating mode). Entering cheating mode stops the slots and leaving cheating mode activates them again. Screen (why don't you try this combination of slots? :P):


Additional info:

The code has been optimised a little bit so there is 1.3k free bytes left.

Hello dziugo!

First, let me thank you for your work! Congratulations!

Now, forgive me if I sound dumb or any thing but I'd like to ask you if your patches are compatible with Reunion's, the Saint's and the NPC reconstruction project ? If so, it'd be perhaps good to point it out!

Thanks!  :love:

Hmm... They are compatible with any patch that doesn't change ff7.exe (like Reunion's and NPCr) and probably compatible with those that do change it...

However, I cannot guarantee anything, so I won't put that in the main post (don't want to hear any cries "It's not compatible with my DragonBallZ mod!!! Fix it right now!!!") but I usually add lines (in the patches readme) that it has been written to be as flexible as possible when applying, so any version of ff7.exe will do. People don't read those readmies, so it's safe to do.

Hey...dziugo

Do you have a webpage for all these patches? Because I rather not refer people to Qhimm's forum, if I can help it. This forum is loaded with leechers, as it is.

sweet idea but one question. when do you turn it off? after you pick what you want to use or after you pick to use the limit?

Working on it, but it's a secret, so don't tell anyone :roll:

In "cheating mode", the slots will stop, but the game thinks that they are still running, so you have to press <OK> 4 times to activate the limit. Maybe I'll change that in a free time.
Edit: Ok, that didn't answer your question. You turn it off... Well... You don't have to :)

Er, I think that that it messes up the battle game (sometimes they were all just one). Just a little warning for those who still like the battle game, but the "Yeah!" is so worth it!

EDIT: Yeah, it is the Battle Arena. Randomly it will force a slot on me.

If you could choose the slots for the battle arena that would be ultimate cheating  :wicked:

I've installed the Gypt patch, however, when I press Ctrl-S to skip a movie nothing happens. Is it possible this doesn't work with the intro movie, or is something else wrong? I haven't tried any other movies in the game yet.

It should work with any FMV. You can check if it is installed correctly:

While in-game:
Code: [Select]
- press "Ctrl"
 - release "Ctrl"
 - press "Q"
 - release "Q"
If Gypt has been installed correctly, the "Are you sure you want..." dialog shouldn't appear. It will appear only if applying Gypt wasn't successful.

To make that window appear:
Code: [Select]
- press "Ctrl" and hold it
 - press "Q"
 - release "Q"
 - release "Ctrl"
The same goes with Ctrl+S. It has to be activated this way. Oh, and if it seems that it didn't work, press it again :) Just remember, that even if the intro movie is skipped, FF7 still waits for <OK> button to be pressed - after skipping 2 FMVs, it'll display credits.

If it still doesn't work and reading debug info (debug.txt in your FF7 main directory) doesn't help with discovering what the problem is, email/PM me - I'll try to help.

My bad, it works just like you said. Thanks! :D Only thing is, the Eidos & Square movies are set to fade out when you hit a button, so I still have to let them play in order to get to the opening credits.
