Unable to locate specific Menu Mod
« on: 2017-05-20 16:03:52 »
I've managed to get everything installed and working, but arguably the most important mod seems to not be included in the catalog. It's a menu mod in which the entire battle interface takes after the FF9 battle interface, with transparent backgrounds and smaller bars. I thought it'd be part of the Menu Overhaul included with 7th Heaven's catalog, but after testing all the options, I can tell it's not the same mod. Does anyone know what I'm talking about and where I can find it?

That nod is inside the reunion and menu overhaul in the 7th heaven catalog. It doesn't look quite the same anymore but its the same mod.

The only variation I've managed to get working is the No Boxes option, which just .. creates a huge black space under the combat area and otherwise leaves the menu alone minus the literal borders that created the boxes.

Furthermore, I can't run Because + Menu Overhaul at the same time without the game crashing whenever a dialog option appears. I'm using a save point right before the Scorpion boss as a test; if the "Restore Materia" prompt works, then the game is stable, but if the game is unstable, the second I grab the Materia the whole game crashes ( Oop! Something went very wrong etc ).

Any thoughts? I'm still testing options but I'd love some guidance here.

Well when you have the mod on and its in your active mods tab click configure and turn on Menu Overhaul. The crash i don't know. You'll need to send me your app log

Are you launching with Workshop -> Settings -> FF7 Exe -> ff7_bc.exe?

I hadn't set up ff7_bc.exe as the launchable.

However, now I'm back to crashing once the main menu is up. I have tried several variations throughout the day in terms of installation ( included following the guide to the letter, twice ) along with experiments here and there, but nothing is bringing me back to a working state.

My most recent attempt:

*Uninstall via Steam
*Remove FF7 Directory
*Use FF7-REMOVE-Keys.exe
*Reinstall FF7 via steam
*Use FF7_GameConverter_7H.exe
*Unzip 7H_1.54
*Update to 1.55
*Configure OpenGL
*Place Save files in user_<id> folder ( save00.ff7 - save09.ff7 )
*Download all mods I intend to use
*Arrange load orders as specified by Tutorial Page
*Configure each mod to personal preference
*Launch Game
*Oops! fern your strawberries homie, you'll never relive your favorite childhood ( next to Xenogears ) game before they FFXV that strawberries
*Change FF7 Exe to ff7_bc.exe as suggested by EQ2Alyza
*Refer to previous Oops! error

[00000121] ERROR: unhandled exception

Whether you guys respond to this or not, I'll keep tinkering, even though that ERROR doesn't really say anything. "Unhandled exception" is like "undefined variable" or "type function error". Eugh.

Thank you both very much for your help, and EQ2Alyza for specifically curating this project for so long. I remember first dabbling with it in college, almost 6 years ago.. thanks so much for keeping up with it. =)

Ahh okay so now your updated to v1.55 you get a common error.
Everyone has this for noe but you need to have 10 save files for it to work for some reason.

Head to your ff7 root/saves.
Copy and paste your save and make sure you have saves 0-9 in there. Just keep renaming them. Then you should be good
