Title: [FF7PC] Nightmare 7 - Total Game Conversion (1.02)
Post by: Tenko Kuugen on 2012-08-20 05:41:35
N7 has been shelved and I have no desire to support it anymore. For the amount of work required to make things work, there just wasn't the motivation to make it for a dozen people.

Code: [Select]
[sse][size=24pt][color=red]Nightmare 7, Total conversion of Final Fantasy VII[/color][/size]

New features, new OST, new difficulty and a lot more! Now with streamlined install.
The custom OST is [color=red][b]MANDATORY[/b][/color]. Your game audio will be a mess if you do not install it.

Main Features:
[hr]
New Scenes ( Ultima Espio )
[hr]
New OST ( Nightmare ) - OGG OST conversion by Covarr.
[hr]
Rotating Battle BGM in fields ( Not world map ). Rotates between 4 BGMs.
[hr]
New Difficulty. This is different from Hardcore. It is a hard mod but it is also completely different from regular FF7. ( Gjoerulv & Nightmare )

Jobclasses for everyone. Every main character now has their own, unique stat growth. ( Example: Aerith would be a White / Black Mage )
[hr]
Total overhaul of Items, Weapons, Armors and Accessories ( Nightmare )
[hr]
Total overhaul of Magic, Summons, Enemy Skills and Limits ( Nightmare )
[hr]

Other things I can't remember at this time.

Already Includes these Mods:
Menu Overhaul (9999 Break & Others )

Aerith Revival by Ultima Espio ( Flevel changes and Animations. Includes manual code fixes by Kuugen )


I will post about progress occasionally
CD2 is now being worked on!

Download Links, all files are required.
(Core files - Unrar and paste into FF7 folder )
https://mega.co.nz/#!OZtm0ABI!K9sZUmT0xoHJ855B7wNb5bkhxuGHfeQda8Oi7c8Slq8

https://mega.co.nz/#!6QsBlThS!lRNIHIp5iSXAJRzmV5M-h7R8FnyWotGBJk51CPFQVEQ

(Full Flevel, which is required but I can't link here for drama reasons, on my twitter profile, twitter.com/KuuTenko )

[color=red][b]Custom models: You can run bootleg to install custom models after you installed this mod. But only install models or textures, installing any gameplay or music related mods will cause extreme issues.[/b][/color]


Installation: Unrar everything. Core files comes with it's own folders which you need to merge with the existing FF7 folders.
Char.lgp goes into FF7/Data/Field
Battle.lgp goes into FF7/Data/Battle
Flevle.lgp goes into FF7/Data/Field
The OST goes into FF7/Music/Vgmstream folder
Yes, the .exe from the core files is supposed to replace the game's original .exe

Bug: There's currently an issue with the transparency battle menu that I am looking to fix.

Sounds cool, but then I got to the part that says how Fearsome, Unforgiving, and Brutal it is compared to the Hardcore mod.... and ran away crying and screaming.
Title: Re: [WIP] Nightmare 7, Beta Testers wanted
Post by: Tenko Kuugen on 2012-08-20 12:19:17
It's really only for people who know how to kick the game's ass. I mean, know how the mechanics work, willing to experiment with element materia and stuff.
It's HARD.
The Hardcore mod was barely any challenge to me but maybe that's because I grew up with stuff like battletoads
my Brother is significantly less used to RPGs and still manages to get through
He's past the Materia Keeper now and sitting at 28 game overs.

So there is the same difference between normal and harcore, compared to hardcore and this, approximatively ?  oO
Title: Re: [WIP] Nightmare 7, Beta Testers wanted
Post by: xLostWingx on 2012-09-01 05:05:30
I imagine that this is like hardcore, except you are weaker, enemies are more powerful, items are harder to attain, materia are harder to level,
spells do less damage, exp is harder to earn, etc.  If you can beat Regular VII in 40 hours, hardcore in 70 hours, this will probably take 100+
and you will probably see the game over screen much more often.  You will have to perfect your technique instead of relying on being more
powerful and better equipped than the enemies.  You see a Mechanical Enemy?  You better make sure that every member of your party has
a way of maximizing their ability to do lightning damage without sacrificing your ability to keep your team alive.  Remember the first time you
you played through VII (assuming you hadn't played many RPGs beforehand)?  Probably going to be more difficult than that.  Remember getting
stuck at Jenova Birth and the Materia Keeper and not knowing how the hell to move forward?  Its probably like that for every boss.
Title: Re: [WIP] Nightmare 7, Beta Testers wanted
Post by: Tenko Kuugen on 2012-09-01 13:50:45
It is mostly like hardcore in that it is based on the hardcore flevel + scene.bin, except I do my own edits on both files on top.
So this includes the additional battles from hardcore but even harder.
You're not actually weaker I'd say. The enemies are so much stronger than making you weaker than before would make the game physically impossible.
The whole weak/strong balance is built from ground up on my own stat growth curves and monsters. You're more powerful than before,
but the enemies are MUCH more powerful than before.
Materia are much, much harder to level, exp is still increased over hardcore but while you still needed the same amount of exp for lvl 99 in hardcore
( vanilla: 2,1 billion )
( hardcore: 2,x billion )
( Nightmare: between 6 and 8 billion )
you need a lot more exp for levels now.

and old logic no longer applies. Mechanical enemies weak to lightning? Ha, not all of them! Use Sense ( Scan ) to find out. A lot of enemies have been
proofed against elements.

and Jenova really will make you get stuck.

Is ot possible to test a little ?
When approximatively do you plan to release this 'looks interesting' modd ?  :)

Post by: Tenko Kuugen on 2012-09-15 18:25:27
it's currently undergoing heavy reconstruction. I'll close beta tests for now, sorry.
I'll pm you the latest version ( and the needed OST ) so you can test that but a lot of stuff will change due to cloudiars awesome work

1/3 ( at the church backroom now ) done translating and converting OVA demo ( demo ends when you leave Midgar )
Created new stat effects for materia
Created new system of finding hidden system. If you collect them all, there will be a mega reward at the end of the game.

what do you think?

(http://imageshack.us/a/img845/7089/dddddti.jpg) (http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/845/dddddti.jpg/)

one thing i think i should do is make the 7 taller and rotate it so it comes across more.
Title: Re: [WIP] Nightmare 7, Currently including OVA remake script

and I agree, the 7 is kind of hard to see
Title: Re: [WIP] Nightmare 7, Currently including OVA remake script

giving it a resident evil feel lol. if youd like to use it as a menu background ill keep working on it. i was bored this morning
Title: Re: [WIP] Nightmare 7, Currently including OVA remake script
Post by: Tenko Kuugen on 2012-09-20 18:29:01
Resident evil is a good direction but try for more Terminator / Matrix feel. I would really like a custom background that comes with Nightmare. If you want, you could make the sword bloodstained or even chipped and broken. Nightmare is the hardest mod out there and also the most extensive after all :D
Title: Re: [WIP] Nightmare 7, Currently including OVA remake script
Post by: omega res novae on 2012-09-20 18:33:57
i dont know anything about terminator or the matrix. idk if id be good enough with gimp to do bloodstains or chips
Title: Re: [WIP] Nightmare 7, Currently including OVA remake script
Post by: Tenko Kuugen on 2012-09-20 18:44:43
Terminator is just resident evil with machines
matrix is resident evil with machines and virtual reality
replace zombies with robots, voila.
generally, it means try a more robotic / mechanic look

Post by: omega res novae on 2012-09-20 18:57:49
alright i think i can manage. there are tutorials out there. so a quick rundown
make the 7 visible
more machina (couldnt resist)
other pros and cons?
whatd you think of sephiroths eye
Title: Re: [WIP] Nightmare 7, Currently including OVA remake script
Post by: Tenko Kuugen on 2012-09-21 01:59:14
Instead of Sephiroth eye, use the Shinra Logo

Nice.. what color theme do you prefer for the background image??? I might try making a background image too if its ok..
Title: Re: [WIP] Nightmare 7, Currently including OVA remake script
Post by: Tenko Kuugen on 2012-09-26 08:23:23
you can try for a prelude credits image instead, I intend to keep the current start menu because Hojo plays a much larger role in the story after I'm done with it.
Chrome metallic, black and blood red are good colors to go with. In Nightmare 7, you ( Cloud & Co. ) are the bad guys after all ( Shinra are the bad guys TOO, though )
Title: Re: [WIP] Nightmare 7, Currently including OVA remake script
Post by: whitERaven on 2012-09-26 09:40:43
Ok, I'll get to it and see what i can come up with.. what is the preferres image size?
Title: Re: [WIP] Nightmare 7, Currently including OVA remake script
Post by: Tenko Kuugen on 2012-09-26 10:15:13
I dunno. I haven't really bothered with the prelude images but iirc, that one needs to be cut up. Relatively high resolution would be good. at least 1080p
Title: Re: [WIP] Nightmare 7, Currently including OVA remake script
Post by: whitERaven on 2012-09-27 01:33:39
Lol.. sorry can't resist I made a hojo background instead, inspired by your menu background.. I made this on a whim for about 5 mins..when I saw a good hojo image in the net.. I'll still do the chrome/black/bloodred prelude and post it here, though omega might be on it already..

(http://imageshack.us/a/img7/56/buster00.png)

it's kinda messy atm since this is still a rough edit..

Title: Re: [WIP] Nightmare 7, Currently including OVA remake script
Post by: whitERaven on 2012-09-27 02:46:35
I see, It was pretty cool for an image made for fun.

As for me real life is taking up my time now.. so I can't commit to something.. but I'll just post something here if I can put together a decent prelude image..

[EDIT: I manage something like this during our break, lol.. ]

(http://imageshack.us/a/img820/3381/nightmarescreen2.png)

there.. Dark, Metallic and Bloody.. I don't know if I got that right.. I didn't bother with the buster sword.. it doesn't fit with the shinra logo.. but if you like I'll place it somewhere..
Title: Re: [WIP] Nightmare 7, Currently including OVA remake script
Post by: Tenko Kuugen on 2012-09-27 05:25:51
No the Buster Sword is actually not that important anymore so leave it out.
If you could make the shinra logo bigger, it'd be good.
additional touching up would be making the NIGHTMARE more part of the actual image instead of font stting on the image
Title: Re: [WIP] Nightmare 7, Currently including OVA remake script
Post by: whitERaven on 2012-09-27 06:37:04
I thought so too.. but when I try to merge the text "nightmare" to the Image it gets harder to read, like this..

Title: Re: [WIP] Nightmare 7, Currently including OVA remake script
Post by: Tenko Kuugen on 2012-09-27 07:06:13
that's unreadable.
for Nightmare, you could try to use solid blood, like a massive splash of blood on the wall ( think, barrel of blood throw against the wall ) and then Nightmare in a black, easy to read font on that.
Move the actual blood / nightmare name a little down so the space between VII and Nightmare is smaller and the Nightmare doesn't occupy the Shinra emblem

Title: Re: [WIP] Nightmare 7, Currently including OVA remake script

Oh I like this.
last thing to do would be to make the VII a bit more solid
you're free to try whatever for that, I'd probably try something like making it look like a trademark inprint on metal

can't you look at an existing prelude image and deduce from there?

Post by: whitERaven on 2012-09-28 09:55:32
that's what i have in mind.. ill use the one in menu overhaul.. may be put together the images first then take note where to cut.. anyway I'll try to do something about this, my yufie retex is almost done si I can focus more on the prelude background..

I've ran into trouble with field files but I'm up to level 62 of the shinra HQ.
shinra HQ is the end of the OVA demo, which means after that I can finish up Nightmare and release a public beta

Goodluck with that, I'll do my best with the prelude too..

Can't wait to use your mod..this is gonna be bloody

EDIT:
prelude Background completed
, it works but you might have to change the fonts on the credits to match the background.

Good work WR

I really can't into graphical anything so i'll have to ask around for fonts etc
well, technically I'd prefer to replace the names entirely with other text
for example, hints, warnings, credits of my own ( tools used, mods combined, mod authors )
Title: Re: [WIP] Nightmare 7, Currently including OVA remake script
Post by: whitERaven on 2012-09-30 09:25:13
Well since I worked on the background might as well try working on those names.. now If you can PM me the list of names with designations you want to show in the prelude in proper order I might come up with something.. 

though all I can do is replace the existing ones, are we allowed to do that?
 I have no idea how to add additional names on those slides.

Aerith Revival, Gjoerulv Hardcore, Menu Overhaul is required for it to run right
after that, unrar the package and paste into your ff7 main folder
you then need to enable direct_mode ( it's only about 50kb of files so it won't hurt you no matter how weak your pc is ) in your open_gl.cfg

The difficulty is different from hardcore. harder, but in a different way.
If I could make videos, I'd make a walkthrough but eh...  my pc probably can't handle fraps. probably. i have no microphone anyway.

if I were you, I'd try it anyway, you might find yourself surprised by what you can handle if you try

I'm on try with your mod. Nice intro picture hojo ! ;))
SO, I'm at the first boss, and I haven't saw any changes in the history or dialogs( who are still in fr, retranslated with MO for me ) , so, okay the boss defeated me, but : am I really in nightmare mod ? (  I replaced all the files with the archive, flevel.lgp included, etc .. no problem for that ).

Uh, you must have done something wrong then. The text would be in english if it installed right.
do you have bootleg with game mode switching installed? that could probably mess it up.

Yeah sure, I used as usual 'hardcore' in the switch menu.

Post by: Tenko Kuugen on 2012-10-06 23:26:03
I'm not familiar with the switch menu. but you need to chose the mode that uses the files you replaced.
the mode that uses flevel.lgp, kernel.bin etc, the normal files
the files you replaced are, probably ( I'm not sure ), used by the 'normal' mode if there is one
I'll need to ask vgr or pitbrat about this

Post by: ManuBBXX on 2012-10-06 23:30:40
Hmm, yes, I see what you mean. In fact, cause of french retranslation selected in my bootleg install, who affects normal and hadcore modd, I think I have to select other than those 2 options.
Reasonable difficulty item choice for example. I'll try it tomorrow.
So, if I understand well, that I'm scared about that, lol, the fact is that with nightmare modd, it's now impossible for me to apply the menu overhall french retranslation in bootleg, who affects my flevel.lgp ? I have to do all the game in english ?

Or maybe with integration in Bootleg0040, it would be possible anyway ? ( Like hardcore mod can be 'patched' with retranslation )

Nightmare, at least outside of bootleg, will be completely in english. It has a new story, so unless someone translates the new story in other languages, english is the only choice.

It has come to my attention that your inclusion of the OVA remake was done without permission. So I am giving you the opportunity to either get his express permission or remove it from your release. If I do not hear that this has been resolved shortly I will have to remove this from the site.

I'm not aware on the depth of this issue, but can this be settled with the author of the OVA?
It's a waste releasing this one without the OVA it's just not the same.

Maybe a conversation with the author of the OVA will be a good start. Although this should have been done before. You maybe able to agree on some terms.

Also I agree things like this are better discussed elsewhere or this might involve a lot of people. Didn't mean to lecture or anything, just saying. We're a community here it won't be good if people start throwing hate post in here.

Long story short: I tried asking, was denied, we got talking, we got friendly, we helped each other out, I asked again, he said nothing likely assuming he didn't have to, I assumed he got around and was okay with it now since we got on pretty good, I kept updating him on the progress, I release it a few weeks later, he gets his panties in a bunch when he notices and says I 'stole' the work ( despite there being multiple instances of him being credited in the first post at the time ) and kicks up a strawberries storm. I try to talk it over with him but he's pretty mad and won't give me permission to keep the changes. Oh yeah, all over the place: bad english got massively in the way. And that wasn't me whose english was bad.

So I take the changes somewhere else that isn't qhimm.

Of course, but be easier to copy and modify text, the problem is it does not that respect the work of others, You should not steal from a project has just been announced that, there are other ways of doing things, never asked before posting your demo.

This is to laugh, really that significant time is the author of that work.

Your lying, I watching your flevel with my work and apparently the demo is absolutely all important content of my demo, also to use any small event, really an absolutely abuse.


It's necessary rectify, and start doing things better, if you have questions about making events then ask, all are going to help, I honestly do not see major events created by you, the majority of this demo be mine, many hidden items only places added of you, but it costs little time to do.

I said if you want my events empice done you, but not like the idea of working.

The most serious is no respect the job very long events, I do not accept others from copying the work before finishing.

Think what you will. Nightmare is more than just a couple of new longer events and several smaller. The core element is the difficulty mod and everything based around that.
The events from OVA are an addition, not the core of the mod. As such I'm not advertising the mod solely for 'new events'.

I got to the point of being able to make events of my own because I spent considerable time fixing yours. Because there were a lot of hangups. Getting stuck in reactor 1, infinite materia gain in two places, dialogue loops that force you to restart the game ( thrice ). I'm grateful for the learning experience still. Not for the drama you're creating here.

If you want to continue this conversation, we will have to do that somewhere else, as the OVA included version no longer has anything to do with qhimm.com

You say, you're limited to make parameter editing that is as simple and fast, nothing new, watching his flevel has nothing really nice, I have a huge quantities of events and improvements, alchemy pot, auction, unique and personal things, so I want to protect my work.

As I said, not only edit parameters, and you exaggerate, many failures due to wrong import Makou Reactor, since my game it works perfectly, except some fault for forgetting, and your game is a combination of other works, must be installed in the original game.

I remember that it is normal to see some failures in a "demo" of a beta, this is a job that is in full development, the main reason they do not give permission, very logical.

Good luck with that.  ::)
And nothing nice? Sounds like you're so angry you can't even remember what you said yourself. Or maybe you don't want to?
I'll check your stuff later, but I really need is some of your knowledge to make some stuff, but I have something to ask you about your changes.
I'll try to be specific in my questions, I use your mod and many changes are really cool, I'm interested in using some if I really want to help, just say to not bother some:.
I think you are referring to expansion of musics "total", it's still a good job.
Really a great job, but that be more personal and I try something else.
I have more interesting things outside the demo, if you want to keep abreast of the changes I can, otherwise I would greatly appreciate your help so that this mod is more complete.
You know that I would like to implement in my mod, so really if it continues I'll have to credit you xD
I think you are a demanding player and I want to enjoy my game.
I do not want to discuss with you, just ask respect, if you can wait for me to finish OVA remake 1.0 then you can take the necessary, I can even help you add a few things, I'm sure I can add in the future is going to like much or more, if you are okay to be I continued posting updates, but please use as private material, to complete my project, then I have no problem, you can add anything.
I understand that you also take a long time with the mod, really, no doubt, but please be understand me.
If these agree I would like to continue contact with you, if you respect me I did not have problems.
Add new changes in your mod Nightmare when Remake OVA finished, then add anything.
Sorry for me also.
Do we have a deal?  :)
That was before our PMs though, I assumed you changed your mind. My bad then. Sorry.
Forget it.

Did you put anything after the end of Demo? Your videos show event in Kalm, Wutai, Whirlwind Maze.
I finished translating your mod and successfully put it into Nightmare 7 ( I fixed quite a few bugs, too, and added more stuff )
If you need help to test events or code them, I might be able to help now. I learned a lot from fixing your script.
Because I'm busy too, I will only be able to help if in exchange I can use your events ( you are credited in the prelude credits ingame and thread in forum for new field events )  in Nightmare 7.

He didn't conform with the work of my demo, he also wanted the work I show in my videos (not published), in addition he offers his help in exchange of this.
This is a joke?
Hadn't I help him enough?

Your idea of being ironic is not accurate. I didn't complain about whether he was stealing, and I didn't comment at all on the truthfulness of him asking or not. Those are irrelevant to my comment, and I leave them for you two to dispute.

What I said was that you originally posted a website link with torrent downloads to illegal game files. That means, as some point, you stole the game. The irony lies in the fact that you posted a complaint in the Announcements about someone stealing your work. Therefore, my comment still stands that it remains ironic how you started on this site dealing with the topic of stealing, and will probably now end on this site with the topic of stealing. That is irony at it's finest.

Your idea of being ironic is not accurate. I didn't complain about whether he was stealing, and I didn't comment at all on the truthfulness of him asking or not. Those are irrelevant to my comment, and I leave them for you two to dispute.

What I said was that you originally posted a website link with torrent downloads to illegal game files. That means, as some point, you stole the game. The irony lies in the fact that you posted a complaint in the Announcements about someone stealing your work. Therefore, my comment still stands that it remains ironic how you started on this site dealing with the topic of stealing, and will probably now end on this site with the topic of stealing. That is irony at it's finest.

For that reason I have to share my work? By forgetting to remove a link?

The problem is abuse, annoy me at the end.

The moderator saw my page and there were no problem, it only forgot the torrent of FF7
In the end I'm going to be the thief, right? xD.

You "forgot" to remove the torrent. So you admit that you were distributing the game illegally. And there only is 'no problem' because that site is not Qhimm. It's still stealing their work, no warped double standard for you good sir. If I'm a thief, then so are you, as evident.

But then again, I can take your mod and put it into Nightmare as much as I want as long as I host it elsewhere and don't link to it here.  8)

You don't seem to fully grasp what EQ is saying.

I have no idea what you are trying to make a point of anyway. Right now you're yelling at me for using your work without permission. You host several mods without permission. Maybe you should yell at yourself first?

Nobody Told me this bad, and moderator qhimm view the page, you can not say "you're stealing," They publish to share.

The mods are for playing mainly and to respect their development.

is there a way to add or change locations on the world map. for example not saying you should do this but adding the cliff where zack dies to a cliff outside midgar with a small event to add to the flashback.
Title: Re: [WIP/REL] Nightmare 7, Includes Hardcore and Aerith Revival
Post by: Tenko Kuugen on 2012-10-14 02:25:34
I'm mostly waiting for bug reports from the people I know that play it. So far, theres a few ( question text boxes aren't sized properly, there was a glitch for infinite megalixirs in the ova version. ) and I'm fixing them as they get reported. I won't be uploading countless new versions but wait until they got far enough.
Other than that, making plans for some events here and there ( Shopping Week in Kalm ) ( Mirror Party following you after Midgar and repeatedly forcing you into fights. Gonna need to ask NxK about some AI stuff first for this one )
Gambling House in Junon.
Some other stuff.

edit: posted during my reply omega :p
World Map editing is possible but incredibly complex. And right now, you can't really add "locations" you can enter. You can only change existing cells. I know i saw a screenshot of someone ( might actually have been aali ) over a year ago. Technically, since the cliff is in a cutscene, I could add it as a regular field via mapjumps and specific checks but right now that's not planned. I'll keep it in mind though. The story of Nightmare 7 is original though so any flashback you might have in mind will be different from what you imagine.

This is only some examples, besides those videos are my alpha version, currently uses corrected versions of my demo.

Post by: Vgr on 2012-10-15 21:41:54
I am not going to take either party here, or to increase the flame war or anything (this will be my only post), but here is my point.

You did something very good with OVA, and Kuugen took it as a base for his own code. You published something on the Internet, too bad, it's no longer yours. That's sad but that's how things are. On another note, yes, it would have been really cool if you could have kept the code you made for yourself, and I understand it can be raging. Sadly, nobody can control something once it's on the Internet. Delete it, and soon after it will be back. Post something, claim ownership, copyright or anything, people don't care, they still use it, or crack or whatever. It may look like I'm defending Kuugen, but I'm not. From what I understood, Kuugen thought you agreed, and when you said you didn't want your code in theirs. Correct me if I'm wrong, but please do so in PM. There's already enough talking in this thread.

Yes, this is sad. But that's how it is.

~Vgr

P.S.: I'd like to remind I'm not taking any party here.

I'm with VGR here. You made a great thing, but it's also a bugged thing. Kuugen is working on making it less buggy, and better. He's taking the time to improve what you started not just putting a new name on it and calling it his. Once you post something into a download file, that's all she wrote. You gave other people permission to use and in this case edit what you made the minute you uploaded it, like VGR said. Why not help the product that has origins in what you made, and take pride in the fact you made something someone thought was worth using and working on for a massive game? Hell, he's even gave you credit for your program. At this point you're coming off pretty unreasonable and a bit asinine. It'd be like me designing a world map texture and then being pissed off at Squeenix for using it in a game they came out with or someone being upset if Kuugen decided to use a boss they retextured or designed for Nightmare VII. Makes no sense whatsoever.

I understand, but you are wrong, the admin told that in this community do not allow copying without permission, rather, "It has come to my attention that your inclusion of the OVA remake was done without permission. So I am giving either you get the opportunity to express his permission or remove it from your release ", must respect.

He wants to copy? Perfect, but outside of this community, those are the rules.

My game bugged? It is normal to miss adding another mod changes.

Yesterday my demo play full and never crash, only minor faults, all the arguments here used to say all good! author manages failures! all lies, changes are needed to perform well in this mod, and translate it, then be hero? seems joke.

I am very surprised and disappointed, I understand fully any published work may be used by others, but the community has its rules, publish my work anywhere, but in qhimm respecting the author's work, that I have understood so far.

I comment to the administrator, is easy work, if allowed to continue in this website work stolen, I cancel the mod, and all happy, but I doubt that the administrator change of thinking days after.

My decision is this:

Kuugen informs me he has effectively disabled your scripts in his mod by disabling the triggers that activate them, while technically the code is still there none of your enhancements will ever run. This satisfies my order to remove them as far as I am concerned. If this is not the case then I require you to provide proof (your script vs his script) since I cannot download OVA to compare.

That's lying, I play with her flevel go to Sector 7 and all my work is there, same with others.

But well,  I'm going to prove it.

To start using my field.dec almost always, you should not use the original?
However spare soldier in that scene, not that hard delete.

(http://www.fileden.com/files/2012/1/29/3256767/kugeen.PNG)

Events Sector 7, these scenes add full days cost me, but this is not the case, the problem is that not what it tells you, then this spare.
(http://www.fileden.com/files/2012/1/29/3256767/kugen2.PNG)
(http://www.fileden.com/files/2012/1/29/3256767/kuugen6.PNG)

Wallmarket events, completely separate my code, I see that is code in several places.
(http://www.fileden.com/files/2012/1/29/3256767/kugeen3.PNG)

Follow before during and after the scene, also spare.
(http://www.fileden.com/files/2012/1/29/3256767/kugeen4.png)

Same case in building sequences Shinra
(http://www.fileden.com/files/2012/1/29/3256767/kugeen5.PNG)

Know that everything save for future use, very clever, but I do not want even one visible in your demo code, if in a hurry to re-publish the demo work harder and to separate the content, especially the events of Sector 7 , all that code to use weeks, wants to have it there for future? perfect, but you take it out of your product on this page.

This was only a small testing time, if you want I can spend here demo to give more reasons.

Be sad to see my full fields with changes in text only xD

LoL chill dude, it's not like I'm siding with anyone.. Just seeing arguments left and right is rather unsightly, I'm just saying that matters like this should be settled between you, kuugen and the admin, no need to involve the rest of the forum. Is that so bad a request that you'll have to react that way? as for the lies thing, I would never know the truth in that, not that I care since this is your and kuugen's problem.

I understand it's hard on your part, with some other members against you.. More reasons to settle this issues privately right? No need to care what the others think.. Just Settle this matter with the Admin and kuugen hopefully reach an agreement then period.

Okaaaay, so im not going to be able to get Bootleg so no chance of me playing this? Just today just decided to install fresh vanilla ffvii on my pc and planning to play with the Nightmare mod really badly lol and maybe do a playthrough and upload em on youtube i dunno soo i guess i should go in this order, i first install the hardcore patch then aerith patch and then well do i have to do the menu overhaul with 9999 break? Im planning to just play with the Avalanche mod instead with 9999break in the ffopengl.cfg of course, so yeah anyway helpin me get this would be much appreciated :)
Edit:
Sigh* just read the title again and i just realised includes hardcore and aerith patch (facepalm) so just a 9999 break only now right
Edit2:
What's with my brain today read everythin nearly twice and just stumbled onto also in first post saying it will include menu overhaul so no way i can play with the Avalanche GUi now?

Post by: PitBrat on 2012-11-02 23:44:33
You still need to install portions of the Aeris Revival and Hardcore patches.
There's at least 1 files in char.lgp that you must install from Revival.
There are new battle models from Hardcore that you need to install as well.

Of course you'll also need to install Aali's OpenGL driver and the ficedula music driver.  FF7Music makes installing the music driver easy.

Bootleg .040 has integrated support for Nightmare.  It installs both the slim and fat (if you know where to find it) versions.

Post by: Tenko Kuugen on 2012-11-03 01:23:50
The Menu Overhaul is theoretically optional if you have another way of changing the 9999 limit to 30,000
I'm gonna release a 1.01 version soon ( as soon as my beta crowd finished up testing. They're at 66F shinra HQ now ) thats basically just bugfixes for the original

The Menu Overhaul is mostly included for the minigame fixes ( because the minigames offer quite valuable prizes now ) the 9999 limit break and the smaller font. The textboxes SHOULD be optimized for the regular FF7 font as well ( due to MR using that font ) though.

As for the specific files, you need the additional monster models from the hardcore battle.lgp and the additional character files from the char.lgp in aerith revival
and whatever way you want to enable 30000 value limit

Post by: sen on 2012-11-03 01:37:01
Yah forgot to mention i obviously first patched it with the essential stuff like the 1.02 and aali's driver patch and ff7music lol maybe put in very few visual mods, and Bootleg is uncompatiable on my current sh*tty pc till i get a new one at christmas...
And ah i see... alright i guess il just put in the Aerith and hardcore patch first then just place the Nightmare files and enable the 9999 break of course and see how it goes tomorrow can't wait to play through countless game over screens lol, thanks alot :)

.NET libraries are needed for Gjoerulv's hard mod and Bootleg's Front End GUI. So if you never had an issue with it, you have them.

Hello, I have just had a little play round with this with the bootleg .40RC and so far it has been awesome. I love the idea of having the hidden items as well as extra limit breaks

however I was wondering if it were possible to be able to customize it a bit more, for example being able to choose to have the Nightmare OST or the Original one and being able to choose to have the original sound effects.
Title: Re: [WIP/REL] Nightmare 7, Includes Hardcore and Aerith Revival
Post by: Tenko Kuugen on 2012-11-24 19:00:09
The hidden item system relies on the soundeffects so I'm not sure it will still work right if you change them
As for the OST while you can theoretically play with the original OST, it would be all messed up in terms of when appropriate music plays. I'd need to go through every field from start to the end of CD1 again and change it all around quite a lot to make that work. Not to mention that I'd need to have two separate slims and fat flevels then.
its possible yes but I'm not going to do it in the near future

Right at the top.

It would be awesome if someone was able to make them compatible. Hardcore mod is IMO the most engaging and challenging difficulty mod the forums currently have to offer. Keeping an eye on Bosola's rebirth though.

they were initially not very compatible and there are a lot of script errors in the original aerith revival. I fixed that.
The only thing that is needed from those mods are the extra models and animations at this point

The only way to play it with the slim is to not start a new game but load an existing save. You can see where the intentions are going with this.

And I updated the twitter link just today so it shouldn't be down. Like 2 hours before you posted this
I just checked now and its up.

Hi, I've been playing this mod and its great so far just want to post some errors I've encountered. Not sure if they're from this mod or the required ones

- In first reactor can get infinite hidden Mega elixers by entering the screen and re-entering
- In wall market after i've given the Starlight to a different npc in the bathroom the guy cooking stuff accepts another Starlight that i didnt have and gives infinite Elixers when you re-enter the screen
- A monster in corneo sewer freezes the game if it attacks, didnt get the name but its similar to a turtle and fairly rare
Title: Re: [WIP/REL] Nightmare 7, Includes Hardcore and Aerith Revival
Post by: Tenko Kuugen on 2012-12-08 14:51:21
do you have the 1.01 update couganr? Because the freeze in cornero sewer and the first reactor megalixir should be fixed in that.

Post by: Tenko Kuugen on 2012-12-09 17:03:40
thats really really odd then. If the megalixir issue persists, then a bit isn't getting set properly.
I'll take a look at it.
the monster issues should have been fixed...  you said its a monster like a turtle? so its the sahagin?

fix 1: wow, for some reason I was using a derpy variable with the megalixirs. It should be fixed now ( I'll upload a identical named file for the fat flevel so that bootleg can just use that. )

fix 2: weird things are going on with this NPC. I fixed it now. had to shift some script to make it not retarded.

fix 3: looking into it

can you tell me if the encounter is in the first screen or the second?
also, did you install any scene altering mods after Nightmare?
did you also update the core files?
because only 2 types of enemies should show up. Sahagins and Slaps ( turtles with spears and swarms of flies ) Neither of those seem to break the game for me.


edit: Oooops, seems like I had a mishap in the kernel with Clouds limits D:
gonna fix that too

Post by: Tenko Kuugen on 2012-12-09 17:35:14

Hey, something has just been sitting with me that I haven't bother saying.
You said a while back... quite a while there's no Gilgamesh model.
Well I've been thinking maybe there is a recolour.. ish.
Godo fighting form is actually pretty close to it.
Well in truth it closer to Asura but let's not pick on that as Gilgamesh appearance slightly change in every incarnation... (or whatever you call him when his appearance change when he exits the riff)
Bottom line, Gilgamesh does have a possible model  ;D

OK, I've gotten a re-producible crash in the first reactor. Happens when the game attempts to enter a battle against enemy SPAA on the pipe above the save point. I've installed Nightmare using the .040RC version of Bootleg, so this may in actual fact be a Bootleg issue.

The issue lays in battle scene 321, which is animation scene 141 which is sweeper + 2 robots
thats indeed an encounter in the save point room
If you crash at that battle, you're missing the robot model which is introduced by Gjoerulvs Hardcore mod
you need to install Gjoerulvs mod before Nightmare ( and specifically, only the battle.lgp part of his mod )
If bootleg doesn't do this during the installation of Nightmare, thats a bootleg error and needs to be reported to PitBrat

without fixing this you won't be able to get out of Midgar since a mandatory bossfight uses new models and without installing them, you can't fight and thus can't proceed.
Title: Re: [WIP/REL] Nightmare 7, Includes Hardcore and Aerith Revival
Post by: PitBrat on 2012-12-11 18:24:20
The bug was in Bootleg.
It was failing to properly install the hardcore mod and the new soundtrack.
I think I've worked all the kinks out now.
I just need to make the Nightmare Conversion visually pop so that the user knows they're in for something unique.

Tenko: Is there a track listing of which music tracks you've substituted for which in the game, or is it too many changes and additions to easily list?

In the install of Nightmare I'm (attempting) to play (I can't even get past Scorpion Guard =_=), some of the loops are a bit funny, and I'd like to have a go and making them loop a little better if I could.
Title: Re: [WIP/REL] Nightmare 7, Includes Hardcore and Aerith Revival
Post by: Tenko Kuugen on 2012-12-16 23:52:49
I could make a list of which music ID the original game plays and which Nightmare plays but if you want to make them loop better you will need to edit the actual music files itself to loop ( like, convert to .ogg, set looping points. not hard just extremely tedious ) properly
I couldn't find the time to do this though

Most of the OST is replaced.
I replaced ALL music EXCEPT these: ( And I might replace some of these when I get to CD2 and CD3 )
boo.mp3
cintrio.mp3
crlost.mp3
crwin.mp3
date.mp3
fan2.mp3
( I'm getting lazy of typing .mp3 so just assume that everything beneath here has .mp3 at the end )
fin
guitar2
jyro
ketc
lb2
lb2_awe
makoro
mogu
nointro
oa
parade
red
rhythm
riku
ro
rocket
roll
sadsid
seto
si
sid2
utai
vincent
waltz
weapon
yado
yufi
yufi2

that is 34 intact of 94 total
so I replaced 60 tracks of the original OST with the Nightmare OST

Let me know what you think, and I'll either keep going or redo.

I found one small bug. Not game breaking or entirely bad, but i'm pretty sure it shouldn't happen so I figured I should post it. When you are in the first reactor, and are first introduced to ladders, and about hitting start if you get stuck. If you hit start after Jessie finishes talking it teleports you to the point it's supposed to. I think it skips out on a point where you can talk to Barret, and it keeps him solid so you can talk to him. I didn't notice this until I tried to get back up the ladder and couldn't get through Barret, so I talked to him, and after the dialogue box cleared Cloud did a super jump to the top of the ladder and started to climb down. Like I said, not game breaking, but just wanted to point it out.

edit: Ok, so it happens whenever you go back to the area where Jessie is just chillin.

edit: Also, I was wondering if you could go more in depth about the classes of each person. I mean, I can probably guess most of them:
Cloud: Kinda like a battle mage. Well rounded in almost everything, but doesn't really stand out.
Barret: Tank. Lots of hit points, best person to put the cover materia on (if it's still in game) High in defense. Decent in attack, but low on magic.
Tifa: Powerhouse. Does a lot of physical damage, but low on magic damage.
Aeris: Mage. Lots of magic damage, and a great healer. Does low physical damage, and has little health and defense.
Red XIII: I can't really think of anything, maybe something like Cloud is, but with a bit more magic?
Yuffie: Ninja. High speed, high chance to not get hit. Medium amount of health, and decent damage
Vincent: Not sure either, but at just a guess maybe, high attack low defense so it's best to keep him in the back. Kind of like the opposite of Barret with a bit more magic ability then Cloud.
Cid: I'm really not sure with him, maybe just another melee person. I honestly don't know.

Though like I said those are just guesses that I made from my personal perspective so I could be completely off. Especially since I'm still in the first reactor.

edit: Also, in the area when you get barret, it doesn't let you go back to the section where Wedge is.

I found one small bug. Not game breaking or entirely bad, but i'm pretty sure it shouldn't happen so I figured I should post it. When you are in the first reactor, and are first introduced to ladders, and about hitting start if you get stuck. If you hit start after Jessie finishes talking it teleports you to the point it's supposed to. I think it skips out on a point where you can talk to Barret, and it keeps him solid so you can talk to him. I didn't notice this until I tried to get back up the ladder and couldn't get through Barret, so I talked to him, and after the dialogue box cleared Cloud did a super jump to the top of the ladder and started to climb down. Like I said, not game breaking, but just wanted to point it out.

Cloud is an all-rounder but his offensive capabilities grow further than his defensive ones. He is also reasonably fast. He needs the most XP to reach lvl 99.

Barret has the highest HP out of everyone and has very high physical attributes but is rather slow and weak to magic.

Tifa has good HP, very high power and good speed but her magic stats aren't the best.

Aerith is the exclusive mage who has the lowest HP, the highest MP, the lowest physical stats and highest magical stats out of everyone. She isn't very quick at first but she improves towards the end.

Red 13 is the opposite of Cloud, also an all-rounder but his defensive stats grow further than his offensive ones. He is also faster than Cloud. His HP is a little lower than Clouds but his MP is higher.

Yuffie has decent physical and magical attack but only moderate defenses. She has the highest speed and luck stats out of everyone. Her HP is not very good but her MP is the second highest in the game

Cait Sith can do a bit of everything but is very slow, the slowest character in the game unless you get very unlucky with Barrets growth. His stats all range between decent and good, and his HP total is very high. He can substitute for most others. He is also quite lucky. He, Vincent and Cid need the least XP to 99.

Vincent is an oddball in that his stats follow no clear pattern as those before. His power is high and his spirit even higher. His speed and physical defense are only moderate but his magic is decent. His HP and MP are not as high as some of the others but his true strenght lies in his weapons.

Cid is more speedy version of Barret with not quite as bad magic values but lower HP.


As for the issues in the first reactor, considering how small a problem it proves as you can't get permanently stuck, the required coding changes would be extremely annoying, so I left it as is. That part comes from the OVA, which did not let you go back at all ( not through the entire thing, not even 1 screen ), which makes this a slightly difficult section to work at

hi! mr kuugen, in the world map near calm going to the chocobo ranch, when i battle 3 prowler then they always escape, then when i encounter enemy i got a blackscreen but the sound is still playing, sorry for asking this and also i dont use bootleg
sorry for asking i am a newbie here thank you.

Update: i try not to put the scence.bin and it work, i think there is a problem in the scene.bin, but right now i dont know how to fix this
Title: Re: [WIP/REL] Nightmare 7, Includes Hardcore and Aerith Revival
Post by: meesbaker on 2013-01-16 04:08:55
I hope you know that the Scene.bin contains all enemy data so playing a hardcore mod does not really make sense without updating scene.bin . I suggest you have a look at the scene containing prowler and look at the AI script. Maybe just putting different enemies into that Scene will already fix the problem. If this problem will occur to others its probably an AI bug. I will check the AI later

Post by: Tenko Kuugen on 2013-01-16 14:28:20
I haven't heard of a problem like this. It's recommended to install this via bootleg because of the dependencies it has.

Also, I need your app.log to actually see what is happening there.
Title: Re: [WIP/REL] Nightmare 7, Includes Hardcore and Aerith Revival
Post by: Vgr on 2013-01-16 14:35:40
It should be able to be installed without Bootleg, but it would need an installer of its own. Check the first post to see what you need and try to install that.

I've just signed in to thank you all for the good work and sweat put in this project.
I've been messing arround with mods during the past few weeks and this seems like the ONE.
Please keep it going for the good mod's sake and let me know if you need some player testing.

Also, I'd like to point out something related to bootleg setup: the only way I could manage to properly install this mod was reinstalling FF7 from scratch and using bootleg 040 to apply ONLY your mod (nightmare conversion option inside Bootleg).
Before trying this, I had applied few bootleg diff. configs already to try diff mods, and when I tried to convert to Nightmare It'd patch perfectly, showed the NEW GAME picture from Hojo, and stuff, but the New materia stats wouldn't show on, neither Zack at the beggining or the hidden system.

Anyways, making a clean ff7 install and converting to Nightmare 7 as your 1st patch worked fine for me.

Weird, huh?

Thanks!

In fact, you need to always install Bootleg on a fresh install of FFVII, or stuff like this will happen.

Edit: Ok, so I decided to try this mod for the first time. Error in the first screen, in the menu, it says "Plattform"

Edit2: While I'm at it, the "Hidden Items" function at the save point is somehow broken. Earlier it said I had 2 of 10 items. I was like "what? I took at least 5-6 of them. guess it only counts rare items" but then just now it said I had 1 of 10 items, and I had picked at least another thing, maybe two. (Edit: At first reactor) There's also the Mega Lixir glitch, but I recall this has been pointed out already.

Sorry if this has been already reported.

Happened the same to me, I almost had them all and it pointed out I had 2 of 10 items. I did then save my game at the save-point in front of the Scorpion, and when I loaded that game again it pointed out I had 0 of 10 items, still I had all of them in my stash.

Dunno If this is the right topic as to note some crashes my FF7.exe has been doing lately. It looks like it crashes completely at random (mostly when you change from one scenario to another one, or when you enter a battle). Puff! Black screen and dump file.
I have to say none of this ever happens with my 2012 FFVII release.

Its getting really annoying, since there's no way I can predict when it's going to happen again.

jesus christ the mega lixir glitch is still there? what else do I need to do to fix this?

I had never any problems with the hidden item counter being screwed up. weird. nor did my testers.
I use 14 202 as variable to store the hidden item count and nothing in the game should ever touch that unless some other mod introduces it. ( and other mods are incompatible with N7 anyway )

I just went over the code and can't find anything in the full flevel that would cause this. ( the hidden item counter )

Can you explain in detail what you are doing when the HI counter resets or gets messed up? Also explain the mega lixir glitch in detail again. I found one possible issue with it and will see if this fixes it.

Post by: Vgr on 2013-01-18 22:46:43
HI counter: First time checking it, said 2 of 10. Second time (after having picked at least one other item, maybe two) said 1 of 10. No more information right now. Oh and I'm using the one in Tifa's Package (didn't bother to check, I assumed it was the latest version).

Mega Lixir glitch: Pick it. Leave screen. Re-enter. Pick it again. Repeat. I can leave down, up, fight as many battles as I want, save, reload, it will still be there.

I installed Nightmare with Bootleg and installed nothing else.

Post by: EQ2Alyza on 2013-01-18 23:26:46
Vgr,

Tifa's Package mistakenly has 1.0.5 and 1.0.6 in it. I checked my Bootleg.log though, and it installs 1.0.6 properly, so it should be the latest version.
Title: Re: [WIP/REL] Nightmare 7, Includes Hardcore and Aerith Revival
Post by: Tenko Kuugen on 2013-01-18 23:47:56
I have no idea what causes the HI counter to get messed up. Like I said, nothing in the game should touch that variable. ever.
The megalixir glitch I think I figured out. There was a gamemoment check containing a label jump before the check that would disable the item ran. so it never ran the check I put in.
Title: Re: [WIP/REL] Nightmare 7, Includes Hardcore and Aerith Revival
Post by: Vgr on 2013-01-18 23:53:52
My guess for the HI is that there is some math problem and that it's the exact opposite (I'm missing 1 of 10 items instead of have 1 of 10). Not sure though.
Title: Re: [WIP/REL] Nightmare 7, Includes Hardcore and Aerith Revival
Post by: Tenko Kuugen on 2013-01-19 00:25:58
the code is very simple
pick up a hidden item, set variable 14 202 = 14 202 +1
check the number of hidden items you have at save point
set variable 14 202 to display in window 1

thats pretty much it

my only guess is that this is a bootleg introduced bug in some way. because i never had this happen with a manual install. and I got no explanation either.

Is there a way to make the save anywhere mod work with this? I'm having a memory leak problem with bootleg, and the removed save points are making it impossible for me to get passed the point where I have to lead Aerith to sector 7. It locks up every time in the construction area before the park, mainly in fights.

I have sometime the feeling that MakouReaktor is doing some strange things to the 'jump to byte/label'. I have seen strange flat models and frozen scenes caused by missleaded jumps. Possible that it is caused by switching from 1.4 to 1.5. I'm not hundred percent sure, if this is or was a mistake by me, but there was no reason to alter the jumps...
I only mention this to spot out: if something strange is happening, you should first check that every jump is correct and the labels are on their propper place.
Title: Re: [WIP/REL] Nightmare 7, Includes Hardcore and Aerith Revival
Post by: Tenko Kuugen on 2013-01-19 15:32:11
I did all the jumps with MK1.5.1 so they're correct. To begin with, the only way this counter can get messed up is if it either falls off memory ( which absolutely shouldn't happen ever ) for some reason or gets altered by something else ( which also should never happen unless another mod introduces something like that )
I found neither in my code for the full level. I just now went through a global search for the variable and it is only ever used by me
I Played through the entire midgar section before I released this, using many saves and never ran into HI counter corruption so my only guess is that this is something related to bootleg.
Can you try to patch your game manually ( install aerith revival, hardcore mod, then N7 on top ) and see if it still happens?

Note: by the time you hit the checkpoint, you can only have 9/10 items as the last item is in the reactor core room and only available after you fight guard scorpion

In theory you can, but I'm not accountable for any glitches you will encounter ( and oh boy you will using save anywhere )
You download the trainer for the game and simply enable 'full menu options' ( Q+0 or Q+1 iirc ) and that lets you save anywhere.
Just make sure to never save in a room where an event just started and always go back one room at least.

I finally finished my playthrough with the Hardcore mod. I thought it started off fairly well, but eventually tapered off into something I wasn't quite looking for in the late game.

I'll need a small break first, and then I'll be giving this a shot to see how your AI scripts work.

Hello, first off I would like to say I am loving your mod. Great work and keep it up! I was unsure if I should PM this bug to you or post, but assumed you check both.

In the Sector 5 Slums the "wandering guy" asks you to pick up Bisnafitoral from the Wall Market. If you can complete the task, you can continue speaking to him and consequently keep receiving your reward item.

Quick edit: You can only do this before you leave Sector 5 after you obtain your reward. After that if you go back he is no longer wandering. I am no coder / modder, but I figure the more details I can provide, the better.

Hello.

I want to thank you in advance for all the wonderful mods you have compiled.  They're very awesome.

Now, to get to the point.  I've been playing with the Nightmare Overhaul conversion that I installed through your lists of mods.  They've been working great, until I get to the part of the game where I'm trying to escape from the reactor meltdown.  After you fight Shinra soldiers, and make your way back up through the elevator, I get stuck after talking to Jesse, and Cloud just moves downward without me pressing any buttons, and won't allow me to continue moving.  This allows the timer to reach 0 and I get a game over.  Is there any way to fix this issue?

In this mod (assuming you use the full flevel - I have no idea about the slim one) you get teleported back to a point in the map when pressing start.

Post by: thepsynergist on 2013-07-15 23:23:00
Yeah, after the elevator, that function doesn't work anymore...  Strangely, I can run through the first gate while its closed, but the second I talk to Jesse, she opens the door, Cloud moves slowly on his own (doesn't let you run), and he just walks into a wall, and I lose complete control of my character.

The only command that responds, is the menu button.

Any clues? 

P.S.: This is the version that came with the latest Bootleg install.

Been following the FFVII remake/tweaks/addons since the steam release. Like many I am sure, have finished FFVII numerous times (Love the game) however are looking for challenge. Hints why I am here on your Thread :D


I must say I do enjoy the added scenes (Controlable Aerith hiding Barrett's Daughter, shinra troops Kissing..., and other tid bits).

I have a few questions and concerns /bugs to report.

Bug First:
1. Finding the Hardedge by the weapon dealer in walmarket place, misses to always miss targets when used in combat. Don't know why, but basic attacks simply don't connect... =/

2. After the Sector 7 Plate falls, heading back to Aerith's church and walking into the room where you threw barrels down upon Shinra Soldiers is a glitch trap. The player will no longer be able to escape this area.


Questions:
1. How does your Mod run for? (Really up to only the end of disc 1?)

2. How do you gain more Limit Breaks? After leaving the shinra HQ, Cloud still is on "Jump Attack" (Braver) and still hasn't learnt Cross Slash... =/  Old play Throughs, I should almost have Lvl 2 Blade Beam Ulocked for the amount of kills and Limit Breaks Preformed.

3. While we are on Limit Breaks, Did you add any new LB (Limit Break) to your mod? Since you changed the names of the few I have seen (Clouds and Tifas). Could you provide a list of your LB and what they do please :)

Thanks for your Time in Advance!! I know the challenges of Modding myself (I create Minecraft Mods) and I am enjoying your 300+ hrs work. Keep it up!!
Title: Re: [WIP/REL] Nightmare 7, Includes Hardcore and Aerith Revival
Post by: Vgr on 2013-07-16 14:15:38
Limit breaks were not added, but you now have access to X-3 limits (which is the first limit of the next level). You need 89 uses of Jump Attack to get Seal Slash (1-2), and 1230 kills to get Mako Beam (2-1) although you can also get it (1-3) with 201 uses of Seal Slash (1-2).

The Hard Edge issue will have to be addressed.

Hello, first off I would like to say I am loving your mod. Great work and keep it up! I was unsure if I should PM this bug to you or post, but assumed you check both.

In the Sector 5 Slums the "wandering guy" asks you to pick up Bisnafitoral from the Wall Market. If you can complete the task, you can continue speaking to him and consequently keep receiving your reward item.

Quick edit: You can only do this before you leave Sector 5 after you obtain your reward. After that if you go back he is no longer wandering. I am no coder / modder, but I figure the more details I can provide, the better.

the wandering guy in the living quarter area of slums 5? in green clothes? what is the reward item?

Yeah, after the elevator, that function doesn't work anymore...  Strangely, I can run through the first gate while its closed, but the second I talk to Jesse, she opens the door, Cloud moves slowly on his own (doesn't let you run), and he just walks into a wall, and I lose complete control of my character.

The only command that responds, is the menu button.

Any clues? 

P.S.: This is the version that came with the latest Bootleg install.

That's a pathing issue I kept forgetting to fix. In essence, you have to approach Jesse while standing 'below' ( as in, towards the bottom of the screen ) her. If you're too high and cloud tries to cut too sharp an angle through the door, he gets stuck.

Been following the FFVII remake/tweaks/addons since the steam release. Like many I am sure, have finished FFVII numerous times (Love the game) however are looking for challenge. Hints why I am here on your Thread :D


I must say I do enjoy the added scenes (Controlable Aerith hiding Barrett's Daughter, shinra troops Kissing..., and other tid bits).

I have a few questions and concerns /bugs to report.

Bug First:
1. Finding the Hardedge by the weapon dealer in walmarket place, misses to always miss targets when used in combat. Don't know why, but basic attacks simply don't connect... =/

2. After the Sector 7 Plate falls, heading back to Aerith's church and walking into the room where you threw barrels down upon Shinra Soldiers is a glitch trap. The player will no longer be able to escape this area.


Questions:
1. How does your Mod run for? (Really up to only the end of disc 1?)

2. How do you gain more Limit Breaks? After leaving the shinra HQ, Cloud still is on "Jump Attack" (Braver) and still hasn't learnt Cross Slash... =/  Old play Throughs, I should almost have Lvl 2 Blade Beam Ulocked for the amount of kills and Limit Breaks Preformed.

3. While we are on Limit Breaks, Did you add any new LB (Limit Break) to your mod? Since you changed the names of the few I have seen (Clouds and Tifas). Could you provide a list of your LB and what they do please :)

Thanks for your Time in Advance!! I know the challenges of Modding myself (I create Minecraft Mods) and I am enjoying your 300+ hrs work. Keep it up!!

Bug 1:
I fixed this multiple times. Why in the world is this still happening? My kernel says there are no problems, unless the enemy is immune to the Cut element. is your kernel up to date?

Bug 2:
Players shouldn't even be able to go in there. I need to disable the gateway after the storypoint. I don't know why it still exists to begin with.

Q1:
It took a lot of time to balance things, fix bugs ( and still fixing bugs ) and so on. Right now it only extends to the end of CD1, yes. You can always keep saves of just before you leave midgard and end of CD1 for when I update this.

Q2:
Limits are vastly more powerful now and take a lot longer to get. Unless you grind a lot, you're not supposed to have level 3 limits before CD2. If you speedrun, you won't even get lvl 2 limits before CD2.

Q3:
Most have dramatically changed power, added effects or do something entirely different.

Cloud
Jump Attack: Single target, def ignoring null element attack with 8x base power ( i.e. no element, means no enemy can resist it ). Also breaks Shield status on enemy
Seal Slash: Single target, cut element, ignores status immunities, causes paralysis, double attack power
Mako Beam: 6x base power, cut element, otherwise same as before
Hellsplitter: 6x base power, 100% critical, ignores defense, cut element
Celestial Rain: 6 hits at 8x base power per hit, Hit element, targets only 1 enemy
Death Spiral: 100% death chance unless immune, Hit element, hits all enemies. If Immune to death, 15x base power hit on all
Omnislash: 15 hits at 8x base power, ignores defense, 100% critical, cut element

Barret
Mega Blast: 8x base attack, fire / shoot element
Erase Magic: 100% max MP damage, shoot element
Explosive Shot: 8x base attack, shoot element, hits all enemies
Impact: Single target 4x base attack, ignores defense, ignores status defense, 100% critical, causes paralysis 100%, punch element
LOIC: 8x Base attack, holy / shoot element, always critical, ignores defense
Maximum Rage: 2x base attack, shoot element, 18 hits, single target
Meltdown: Single target, 10 hits, 15x base attack, ignores def, 100% critical, shoot element, removes regen, haste, barrier, mbarrier, reflect, shield, berserk, peerless, deathforce and resist from enemies

Tifa ( Unless it says 'ignore STATUS defense, if the enemy is immune to the status, even 100% causing a status won't do anything )
Triple Hit: 100% slow, 2x base attack, 100% critical, ignores defense, punch element, random target
Upheel: 2.5x base attack, 100% confusion, 100% critical, ignores defense, Hit element, random target
Low Tide: 4x base attack, removes Reflect, 100% critical, ignores defense, hit element, random target
Megaton Throw: 4,5x base attack, 100% blind, 100% critical, ignores defense, hit element, random target
Tsunami: 6x base attack, 100% silence, 100% critical, ignores defense, punch element, random target
Hyper Impact: 8x base attack, removes barrier / mbarrier, ignores defense, 100% critical, punch element, random target
Lifestream Judgement: 15x base attack, 100% slow, ignores status defense, ignores defense, 100% critical, holy / punch element, random target

the others had their limits changed, too.

Hello. I hate to ask this, as I know it is supposed to be A very difficult thing to do. But after hours upon hours of trying to decipher the Nibleheim safe combination, I have given up. Would you be kind enough to PM me the combination? I was going to ask via PM but my post count is not high enough. If you would prefer that I just keep trying on my own, that is fine.

When I reach the world map for the first time, it does the usual "Save on the world map" thing, but it also says the full Nightmare overhaul ends here. Was that a leftover from an earlier version or does that mean the rest is not fully done yet?

N7 original features ( scenes, hidden items, new story ) constitute the 'full' version where the difficulty scaling goes to the end of Disc 1. this includes changes to what items and materia you find and get as prizes in the gold saucer.

Tenko?

At the first save point in the first reactor...  it says 10 hidden items, does that mean  there are 10 hidden items up until that save point? as in 10 items in reactor # 1 up until you fight guard scorpion? I only found 6 i think , maybe 7... 

im not asking where the items are...  i just dont want to leave reactor # 1 if im missing some hidden items since i cant come back so would you mind please telling me about this thank you very much.

also i have encountered the bug that causes the counter to reset for your hidden items # collected.
so the bug is true.
Title: Re: [WIP/REL] Nightmare 7, Includes Hardcore and Aerith Revival
Post by: Tenko Kuugen on 2013-08-17 04:53:19
there are 9 items before the save point and 1 after the save point.
what are the details of the bug? because that really shouldn't happen anymore.

oh maybe i have the wrong version installed ? i have the version that came with tifas torrent for bootleg 0040

its the same one with the infinite megalixir in the room before the save point.


as for the bug..  maybe it has to do with either getting them out of order  .. like getting the 9th one first and the 1st one 9th..

or maybe it has to do with getting infinite megalixirs bug from the room before.. maybe those two bugs are relative?

i dont know what version the torrent comes with but thats not the latest version, more than likely.
And the out of order doesn't matter
the megalixir should use a different bit than the hidden items so I don't think they are correlated at all.

Post by: Iamjob on 2013-08-19 10:40:09
I have another bug to report, this one being a bit more serious. When fighting the Materia Keeper in Mt. Nibel caves, it gives a CTD anytime he uses a particular ability. I am pretty sure it's happening when he uses Gamma, as I've seen his other abilities cast with no CTD.
Title: Re: [WIP/REL] Nightmare 7, Includes Hardcore and Aerith Revival
Post by: Tenko Kuugen on 2013-08-19 11:24:57
hm, thats very weird. ( and obviously not supposed to happen )
I'll check this right away ( scene.bin fixes are easy to do )

do you have any other mods installed? becuase other than the name, Gamma uses the exact same data as the vanilla Trine
do you have any other gameplay mods installed?
To narrow this down, try saving before him, make a backup of your scene.bin ( in ff7->data->battle )(scene.bin.backup) and then put the vanilla scene.bin there and see if it still crashes.
what attacks specifically have you seen that do NOT crash?
also, do you have the latest core files? ( see page 1  of this thread )
Title: Re: [WIP/REL] Nightmare 7, Includes Hardcore and Aerith Revival
Post by: Iamjob on 2013-08-19 21:53:29
No other mods, gameplay or other have been installed. Just the pre-requisites for Nightmare to function correctly. I have seen Big Horn, Hell combo and his "auto-attack" All without crashing. I just assumed it was Gamma causing it as I remember most times he casts it very early in the fight, and I can't fight more than 2 minutes before a crash. I do have the latest available core files. I will try to replace scene with vanilla and see what happens.

*Edit: Seems there is no crash when using the original scene.bin
Title: Re: [WIP/REL] Nightmare 7, Includes Hardcore and Aerith Revival
Post by: Tenko Kuugen on 2013-08-20 11:01:41
thats odd. I have an idea what might cause it though

edit: hmmmm its not the main AI
there goes my idea
its weird because I played through that battle just fine.
he also has Cure 2 ( in vanilla ) and cure 3 in N7 but it would be weird if thats the crash... he generally casts cure before gamma and the attack IDs are correct

btw, bootleg should install the prerequisities automatically. the manual install is somewhat iffy iirc.

it could be the physical or magic counter script although they shouldn't cause a crash...
is there anything specific you do before it crashes? physical attack? magic attack? or does it randomly crash when he does something?
if replacing the scene.bin solves it, it must be either Cure or one of the AI scripts... very odd...
Title: Re: [WIP/REL] Nightmare 7, Includes Hardcore and Aerith Revival
Post by: Iamjob on 2013-08-20 16:14:34
Odd. Maybe it is because I did a manual install, unsure why but when I used bootleg to install it froze / crashed after the intro video.  I have tried using both only magic and only physical, also just tried only chucking items such as shrapnel.

If it is working fine for you, I wouldn't pay anymore mind to it (unless the problem persists for others of course). I just broke down and used Hojo to change his HP to 1 so I could get passed the fight, though I despise having to cheat =/.

Thanks for looking into it, now I believe the issue is caused by a manual installation.

Post by: Tenko Kuugen on 2013-08-20 19:04:31
if you use the full flevel there shouldn't be any issue when starting a new game.. nor when you use the slim one

have you seen it cast a healing spell? because that could be the other cause of the crash
Title: Re: [WIP/REL] Nightmare 7, Includes Hardcore and Aerith Revival
Post by: Iamjob on 2013-08-20 21:35:08
I am using the full fLevel, not the slim one (tried both). I could not figure out why bootleg caused said crashes.
To reply to your inquiry, No I have not seen Materia Keeper cast any spells. I've only seen Big horn and Hell combo("auto attack" as well). It always seems to happen after keeper uses big horn, but right as his next turn happens.
Title: Re: [WIP/REL] Nightmare 7, Includes Hardcore and Aerith Revival
Post by: Tenko Kuugen on 2013-08-21 14:19:46
so it crashes when it uses magic. huh.
So if replacing the scene.bin help, it must mean that Cure causes the crash? i just have no idea WHY it would do that.
i mean, if the spell works fine for YOU it should also work fine for the enemy since the scene.bin pulls player-usable spells the monsters use directly from the kernel and not from the scene.bin
if nobody else ever reports this, I have to write it off as a fuzzy install
Title: Re: [WIP/REL] Nightmare 7, Includes Hardcore and Aerith Revival

Post by: ZaruenKosai on 2013-08-26 04:13:17
Were you saying that  the torrent should or shouldnt contain the latest version?



And the bug with materia keeper, i  remember getting this crash a long time ago and i was not even using your mod at that time so i am quite sure it has to do with another mod, not yours...

 i am also quite confident about my memory but mistakes can be made and i may be wrong but i am probably not.. and the materia keeper crash i think has nothing to do with your nightmare mod.. directly.




IamJob you have directshow or whatever the codec that ffvii requires installed right?

if you dont, fmvs will usually crash the game but you say it was crashing after the intro fmv played so i guess i cant help you with that problem than ... sorry





P.S. Does Expl Plus Materia work any differently in the nightmare mode? i noticed if 3 people have exp plus that none of them will get the diplsayed bonus experience but they will all get slightly higher than normal.

whereas with one person equipping exp plus, the other 2 members get full bonus exp but the one with it equipped does not...... strange isntt it?
Title: Re: [WIP/REL] Nightmare 7, Includes Hardcore and Aerith Revival
Post by: Tenko Kuugen on 2013-08-26 14:36:17
I heavily doubt the torrent has the latest flevel

I wonder what the problem with the Materia Keeper is then. I mean, it cant be a vanilla issue so I really wonder what mod could be causing it.


I'm slightly confused by the exp+ materia now.
at lvl 1 and 2, it should be 10% extra, at lvl 3 it should be 20% extra and at master ( lvl 4 ) it should be 30% extra
I know this stacks until the cap, which I forgot how high it was. the display info of the materia is probably wrong.

ah well perhaps the bug is caused by not having an updated flevel?

the experience given is proper , for example .

enemy A gives 100 exp without bonus exp
with expl plus it will display enemy A gives 150 exp but my characters will get 110 exp.

this is if all 3 characters have an exp plus equipped ... (i still dont know why it displays 50% bonus exp given when its just 10% :D)



let me make sure about the other part of the bug .. maybe i made a mistake somewhere with my math.

ill test some more  to see if the 2 characters without exp plus are indeed getting more experience than the character using  one exp plus.



gonna install the updated flevel (nothing else needs updating?)  now maybe that will fix the exp plus bug..


btw sorry for all the criticism and bug reports... and no praises..

your mod IS good.... very good ,  it breathed the exact kind of fresh air i was looking for... loving the new features and difficulty...


Title: Re: [WIP/REL] Nightmare 7, Includes Hardcore and Aerith Revival
Post by: Tenko Kuugen on 2013-08-26 18:10:24
the experience gain is not related to the flevel at all. this is all in the kernel.

Quote
>enemy A gives 100 exp without bonus exp
>with expl plus it will display enemy A gives 150 exp but my characters will get 110 exp

You are getting the correct amount of experience. I haven't found the display data to change it but 110exp is 10% more than you normally get and that is normal while you have one exp+ with 1 star or 2 stars

I actually don't remember if you need exp+ on every character. someone else would need to answer that. But I THINK you don't.

Hey Tenko, I just saw your post in the Hardcore mod thread.

Yeah, I've been looking at the Nightmare mod (I'm assuming you meant this one). One thing that's putting me off is that it requires a Bootleg installation and I'm not sure that I've got enough room left in the HDD for that or how it would affect my older mods (I'm using things like Ficedula FF7Music and an old version of Aali's Graphics).

I was reading the features bit. Is it possible to get a version of this mod that's pared down to just the battles, the kernel, etc.? Something I could just stick into a data folder and then plug n' play? I'm not really into the new graphics or music stuff, I just want the gameplay challenge. Is that possible?
Title: Re: [WIP/REL] Nightmare 7, Includes Hardcore and Aerith Revival
Post by: Tenko Kuugen on 2013-10-02 18:39:36
the overhaul itself doesn't include any new graphics beside the new models from gjoerulvs hardcore mod.  This mod replaces the kernel, scene.bin, flevel and the .exe as well as the music folder because it forces a new OST. bootleg doesn't require you to have the full list of mods. you can just install nightmare.

This leads to some good effects, you get to keep the knightmare conversion with the changes made in that mod like character following and changes to the games text and the hidden items and extras, but the difficulty is changed to that of the phoenix rejuvination mod so in the end if want all the other great changes made by the nightmare mod but finding it too hard bootleg over the bootleg and have the best of all worlds ;D

This will not work for the entire game
Namely, whenever you have to fight a 'new' ( not in vanilla ff7 ) boss, the game will crash and you wont be able to proceed
This is because you swapped out the scene.bin with another one with the bootleg re-install.

I am not going to support any problems that arise from messed up installs.

Well so far I have had no problems and I am just about to fight apps in wauti so I am half way through disk 1, so I will let you know when I have finished disk 1 for witch your mod works up too let you know if there has been any crashes.

Title: Re: [WIP/REL] Nightmare 7, Includes Hardcore and Aerith Revival
Post by: Tenko Kuugen on 2013-10-31 00:24:20
Wutai is enforced to be on Disc 1 and before Temple of the Ancients in this mod. You cannot start the keystone quest before you finished Wutai. I forgot if I made the Pagoda optional but it's possible I didn't or only made the last floor optional.

And I assume he means Raps, Conero's second pet ( And Wutai is near the end of CD1. It could also be he means wallmarket and Apps but that wouldn't fit with halfway-through-CD1 )
you shouldn't be able to get past the new bosses ( like, in Shinra HQ, the triple named soldier battle from Gjoerulvs Hardcore mod. Unless you have the scene set up correctly, the game would crash or start some kind of bogus battle ) if you replace the scene.bin

Just don't tamper with the mod install unless you really know how the files work together and what you're doing.

Wutai is enforced to be on Disc 1 and before Temple of the Ancients in this mod. You cannot start the keystone quest before you finished Wutai. I forgot if I made the Pagoda optional but it's possible I didn't or only made the last floor optional.

And I assume he means Raps, Conero's second pet ( And Wutai is near the end of CD1. It could also be he means wallmarket and Apps but that wouldn't fit with halfway-through-CD1 )
you shouldn't be able to get past the new bosses ( like, in Shinra HQ, the triple named soldier battle from Gjoerulvs Hardcore mod. Unless you have the scene set up correctly, the game would crash or start some kind of bogus battle ) if you replace the scene.bin

Just don't tamper with the mod install unless you really know how the files work together and what you're doing.

Just cleared Demons gate in the Temple of the Ancients Cloud at level 64 and still not run into any problems. What I acually done was fresh install of FF7 tehn bootlegged FF7 with nightmare conversion and the other mods I wanted, after that I proceeded to bootleg FF7 again but this time with all gameplay mods changeable including hardcore mod. So at the mo I am play it with the great chang4es of nightmare conversion but with lost wing difficulty and I have had no troubles.

Hope I'm posting this in the correct thread. This SEEMS to be the Nightmare 7 thread. I need to say that I installed the mod EXACTLY as required with bootleg and all. It works wonderful (& difficult). :-) I did find a couple bugs with this mod, though.

#1 Junk Shop at Wall Market. Not a big deal, but when I entered there was a .... ghost duplicate of Aeris to the left of the entrance. No graphical glitches on screen or in the menu or otherwise. Can't interact with her, nor does she hinder movement. Similar to seeing her in her church before she disappears, but in Wall Market Junk Shop she doesn't disappear.

#2 in Train yard after climbing up from dealing with Corneo in Wall Market. There is a potion / ether / tent item on top of one of the trains. I assume this is a one time item, unless it was programmed as I found it. I acquired about 30 Ethers, 20 Tents, & maxed out my Potions. It never stopped spamming items, I just got tired of button mashing. I guess this one is better left unfixed!  :?

#3 in Shinra HQ. The room where Jenova was kept. After Seph takes her you check the black room with Holy- and a Midgar Zolom. I found a repeatable crash. Every time I had Steal+ equipped with ANY materia and then used that materia.... crash. I tried Ice and Fire.... crash. Then I purposely tried it with Analyse. Same thing... crash. After that I thought it might be the Steal+. I unequipped it & viola! No crash.

edit: I almost forgot. I always get a crash whenever game over happens, instead of 'new game / continue' screen.

Post by: Tenko Kuugen on 2014-01-24 13:42:43
Glitch 1) Oh boy, I must have forgotten to put a gamemoment variable there to disable the additonal Aerith. This is related to the Aerith follow script when you first visit wall market.

glitch 2) Wat. I mean seriously, what? Is there a variable missing or something? I haven't heard about this before but that's clearly not intentional.

glitch 3) Weird. I didn't actually change the Steal+ materia, only the name. I'll look at the function and compare it to the vanilla one. Do you have any other mods installed? Because this does sound a bit like a mod conflict.


I also get the crash when I get game over but I have literally no idea what causes it. I also get that in vanilla FF7 sadly, so I have absolutely no solution.

Hey

this mod keeps on crashing on me all the time and i do not know why

is there anyway to fix the non stop crashing issue

The first crashed started when i entered a random battle when i was climbing the tower

and it crashed again when i first entered the world map

and it crashed on the sephiorth flash back as well

and how much longer until this mod is 100% bug free

thanks and take care

I have not had anyone else report this so I have to assume this is on your end
Could be the mod not being installed correctly or your steam FF7 not being converted. I know my mod but I'm not good at debugging FF7 in general. Take this to the tech support please, because I have no idea what kind of problem you could have

My download links have the same as what you get from his Twitter. It won't change anything by just replacing it. I'm not really an expert on this mod, but I do know it works for many others, so I'm 99% sure you just installed something incorrectly

uh, thats not the correct scene.bin for my mod
my mod has it's own scene.bin
check the first post for links. scene.bin is included in the core files.
Title: Re: [WIP/REL] Nightmare 7, Includes Hardcore and Aerith Revival
Post by: EQ2Alyza on 2014-02-14 19:52:01
He's playing it from a Bootleg setup, and your scene.bin is included in it. I am thinking he's set up his installation incorrectly, and the language barrier makes it tough to communicate the error.

hello ... I may have figured out the problem .... maybe when I run bootleg.exe, I must not use Gjoerulv ...... and I have to manually copy the files (nightmare nightmare ost 1,2,3 and core files 1.01 )???
I thank you for your patience
Title: Re: [WIP/REL] Nightmare 7, Includes Hardcore and Aerith Revival
Post by: EQ2Alyza on 2014-02-14 21:10:39
You will need the following:

flevel.rar
Nightmare 1.01 core files.rar
Nightmare OST.part1.rar
Nightmare OST.part2.rar
Nightmare OST.part3.rar

In the BFE.exe, you need to check the box "Nightmare Conversion" under the Game tab. That's all there is to it.

Post by: Tenko Kuugen on 2014-02-15 07:05:51
I have never tested bootleg installing N7 so I can't actually verify if it installs correctly
essentially it should install menu overhaul, aerith revival, gjoerulv hardcore and then override files with the N7 files

To elaborate
you need menu overhaul for the glitch fixes and the damage break
you need aerith revival for the animations and model parts (The flevel changes are included in my flevel)
you need gjoerulv hardcore for the monster models (battle.lgp, scene.bin, kernel.bin, ff7.exe is all covered by N7)
Title: Re: [WIP/REL] Nightmare 7, Includes Hardcore and Aerith Revival
Post by: EQ2Alyza on 2014-02-15 15:24:13
When you select the Nightmare Conversion, it will also automatically select those options and gray out their boxes so that they can't be changed.

Anyone have any idea why this would be happening?

(http://i.imgur.com/SldOZ4c.png)

None of the other character's dialogue is appearing at all, no "c'mon newcomer follow me, hey whats your name." The command box in battle is also cropped in a funny way. And no dialogue box appears when I pick up the item from the fallen soldier.
I installed the full flevel manually (copy and paste over the other) after running bootleg. Could that be it?

(in this screen cap i was playing in a window, playing in fullscreen fixed nothing, but does make graphics and game speed better)

Also, what other info should i provide and would this be better off in the bootleg help page?

Thanks ahead of time
Title: Re: [WIP/REL] Nightmare 7, Includes Hardcore and Aerith Revival
Post by: Tenko Kuugen on 2014-02-26 20:47:34
I think that's a menu overhaul problem actually. Menu Overhaul is mandatory for this mod after all and while I supply the .exe, I don't supply the window.bin (or whatever it was)
First you could try and check if a bootleg install fixes it.
You could also try to backup my exe, run Menu Overhaul over the game and then put my exe back and see if that helps (or breaks it even more)
Title: Re: [WIP/REL] Nightmare 7, Includes Hardcore and Aerith Revival
Post by: Lionsmane on 2014-02-26 21:50:14
I've installed it using bootleg three or four times now, so I'll probably try your second suggestion. Good to know where its coming from though!

Is it possible that the file(s) I have downloaded for the overhaul are just outdated?

Loving your use of save points by the way, this should be fun once I can get it going.
Title: Re: [WIP/REL] Nightmare 7, Includes Hardcore and Aerith Revival
Post by: Tenko Kuugen on 2014-02-27 05:08:20
Odd, this really, REALLY shouldn't be happening from a bootleg install
the flevel from my twitter and the core files here (plus music files) are up to date, so I see no reason this should happen
I'm also not entirely sure why it happens. Menu Overhaul could be one culprit. You could open a thread in troubleshooting since the really tech savy people don't come to this thread.
Title: Re: [WIP/REL] Nightmare 7, Includes Hardcore and Aerith Revival
Post by: EQ2Alyza on 2014-02-27 05:32:21
Bootleg uses M05c alongside N7. As long as you've downloaded from the tutorial, then all the correct files will be used.

MO, along with other potentially selected mods, manipulate the flevel file, so a manual install after Bootleg has the potential to screw things up. It also already utilizes the full flevel.
Title: Re: [WIP/REL] Nightmare 7, Includes Hardcore and Aerith Revival
Post by: Lionsmane on 2014-02-27 11:45:56
Hmm, well I have had alot of the same mod files for running bootleg in a folder for probably around two years now, so ill probably see if any of them (particularly the ones you two mentioned) need updating. If that doesn't work ill open a help thread.

Thanks for the input!
Title: Re: [WIP/REL] Nightmare 7, Includes Hardcore and Aerith Revival
Post by: EQ2Alyza on 2014-02-27 11:54:21
If you haven't downloaded anything new from 2 years ago, then there is the potential of having outdated files. I updated the Bootleg files last November, and I do remember replacing the slim flevel with the latest full flevel for N7. Perhaps look into that.

Post by: Lionsmane on 2014-02-28 17:08:54
Is it still only through the first disc?

Also, im not positive, but I think my problem had to do with window sizes due to running with parallels on a mac.

I tried to go fullscreen (fullscreen with parallels in respect to my mac, not the game) in the middle of the game and the window issue reappeared. Otherwise its fine.

I hope that made some kind of sense!

The difficulty part extends from the start of the game to the end of CD1. After that (CD2 and CD3) the game is like Gjoerulvs hardcore mod.


Beating Motorball requires you to have some sort of fire element defense and spread out your healing capabilities. Don't be afraid to use items to heal and damage him as he is very, very tough. It also helps to put everyone in front row before the battle, since he will back-attack you and reverse your rows.

I recognize that error from somewhere but I can't remember.

blackbg1 is a debug room so I'm not sure what the game is even trying to do there.

I can not wait for it to finish the entire game with nightmare difficulty, but to make the game more cool maybe you can add some other weapon to fight (maybe omega weapon XD) ...... however for my personal opinion I do not like the fact that it has reduced the save points (indeed seen the difficulty and not knowing what you are in absolutely better to put in more or not?) however i would be very glad to help you if you need some ideas for new boss and / or the monsters :)
Title: Re: [WIP/REL] Nightmare 7 - Total Game Conversion
Post by: Tenko Kuugen on 2014-03-17 12:57:14
Omega Weapon (from Gjoerulvs Hardcore mod) is alreada a thing
I once owned a red diamond weapon model that I think WhiteRaven did for me but I seem to have misplaced it.

Savepoints are reduced to encourage careful play and not just saving, storming in without a care in the world and then re-doing the section while knowing all about it

It'll take a good amount of time before I have finished CD2 since there are lots of things to do on CD2

Any one of the following is helpful and will enable you to help. More than one is even better.
1) You can write custom enemy AI
2) You know your way around field script code in makou reactor and you can get to a goal with minimal instructions
3) You can edit models
4) You can edit music (proper looping .ogg of the custom OST)
5) You are very knowledgable about the .exe and can do advanced hex edits
6) You have lots of time to proofread custom dialogue and bugtest the mod in general as well as provide feedback of the game experience.

In any case, there are lots of things I'd like help with.

I'll send you my beta Flevel (that has most if not all of the Nibel flashback rewritten)
I'm busy right now so I'll get around to it later this evening. You do follow me on twitter I think, (twitter/KuuTenko) so you don't need to ask on the forums.
Playing through that, fixing grammar and spelling as well as textboxes that do not fit(remember to use menu overhaul because that is required and I adjust the text for that) would be step 1
Step 2 would be to play through the rest of the mod (that is, up to the end of cd1) and give me feedback especially on item placement, random battles, bosses as well as stolen and dropped items. What is broken. What makes it too easy. What is pointless. And so on.

You're doing the same thing that I always do by revising the work that you've already done before finishing the rough draft. Keep working on Disc 2 & 3. If you can stay ahead of me, I promise I'll give you enough feed back to release a real nicely polished mod.

Started up a second playthrough for debugging, etc (something I'll work through slowly now and then) and checking the flevel as I go. The dialogue for Kage in Tunnel_4 may be screwed up, the text boxes aren't big enough to hold his lines from what I can see in Makou. Haven't seen it in-game yet because of the kid asking about his cat in Sector 7. He didn't spawn so I stopped to look at it in the flevel. He seems to have a second variable condition besides Game Moment; what were the in-game conditions for making him appear? I'm assuming we gotta do a certain thing before this point to trigger it.

Once the music is in .ogg format, I will no longer distribute ff7music with it since I'm told Aalis new driver can utilize the files by itself and as such they will need to be installed in the appropriate place.

Good luck with Gunners, Rufus, and Motorball; no save points between any of them although there might be one if you choose not to accept Tifa's help for the fight (not tested it). This advice might be out of date by now if revisions were made, but:

-) Avoid using magic against Hundred Gunner, or queuing more than one spell at a time; his counter hits the entire party quite hard.

-) Avoid attacking Rufus physically, his counter inflicts various status ailments (unless you use Cross Slash to paralyse him but I can't remember if he can be paralysed).

-) Avoid using your strongest attacks on Motorball at the start of the fight; he begins with a Peerless effect that you should wait out until it wears off. The Peerless effect is initially invisible until he is struck, so attack once to make the effect show up. Also, there's a row change on Motorball's deadly wheel which doesn't update visually I don't think; watch out for that as your party members will become more vulnerable to Sword Arm.

I added a savepoint after Rufus. I don't remember if I uploaded that flevel already but it's safer to get the new scene.bin and flevel from the first post (flevel from twitter)
Other than that, solid advice.

I just read this so my strategy was a little bit different. When I was in wall street I saved up my gil and bought those massive effect items like Astral gate. The bosses fell down like flies. My only mistake was saving after I left Midgar and realizing I forgot the enemy skill. Please tell me that there is another enemy skill.

The enemy skill materia are where they were before (shinra HQ, junon, forgotten city)
I don't know if I changed the chocobo sage enemy skill to something else but I believe I did.

Buying the effect items is certainly one way. Maybe I'll make them more expensive since that's kinda exploiting the shop.

Hey I found a glitch. If you steal from the Midgar zolem in jenova's broken out cage you get an item that doesn't seem to have a name and it sells for 2 billion gil.

Post by: Tenko Kuugen on 2014-09-18 03:33:53
Oh boy, I thought I removed all of those. I have no idea how that glitch happens at all to begin with, considering it looks fine in proudclod.
It was only a Lixir you could steal so I removed the steal completely. If that doesn't solve it, I dunno what's wrong and I'll have to make a troubleshoot thread.

If it took you that long to farm the gil you could probably have beaten the bosses rather easily anyway since you were probably overleveled.
Title: Re: [FF7PC] Nightmare 7 - Total Game Conversion (1.02)
Post by: Sega Chief on 2014-09-18 13:54:55
It's the Alpha version of P.Clod that causes it; sometimes it doesn't set the steal/drop flags correctly. Try editing it with Proud Clod Final (which isn't the final version) or the actual final version (I haven't used that one a lot though). Thing is, you might have more of these landmines lurking around; it's essentially an invisible glitch until someone encounters it.

Can you describe what was happening after gi natak died? did you try killing the characters that were posessed by the flames? If they weren't posessed, you /can/ kill the flames, it's just hard and you need a defense bypassing attack
Other than that I'll need to ask Sega if he can look at the AI and if something is borked there.

I tried attacking the flames with every attack I had.  I found out which were the most powerful and then I linked the attacks together as best as I could. However, I only had a two second window before the flames would completely recover themselves.

Post by: Tenko Kuugen on 2014-09-23 13:51:16
Hm, odd. They are supposed to die with Gi Natak. I made them near invulnerable because I wanted to force the player to deal with the flames the entire fight and not just kill them all the time.
I believe I found the issue though. Gi Natak has a magic counter script which might override the death counter script and thus the flames don't vanish. Can you try and see if the flames still stay if you kill him with a non-magic attack?

since the Reunion patcher destroyed my flevel and the backup was just another reunion flevel all the while I had no flevel option whatsoever tagged in the installer

If this is a bug with the installer I need to know what you did and how it "destroyed" your flevel.  Reunion does not edit flevel code (it does replace some fields but this is with Weapon only and only very few files as of R01), it only really changes text.  The backup file would have been there for sure if you had run the installer once before on your changed flevel.  It does not overwrite it a second time, by design, to stop accidental overwrites.

The way you have worded your post seems to be directly stating that the Reunion installer is broken in some way.  The final thing is that your whole project should never have been put in this predicament to begin with, as backups should have been made far far away from the ff7 root folder, and certainly before running an installer on the game.  I have 5 backups of Reunion.  One is here in Sweden with me on datapen, one is on Google Drive, one is on a hidden harddrive in my house, one is on my main computer harddrive, and one is on blurray disc.

I still need to know how the Reunion installer broke your flevel, though, because if it did, that is certainly something that needs looking at, backup or no backup.
Title: Re: [FF7PC] Nightmare 7 - Total Game Conversion (1.02)
Post by: Tenko Kuugen on 2014-09-28 05:31:08
That it doesn't overwrite the backup is something that's not obvious (and if you've worked with other stuff that does auto-backups, it either automatically creates a backup(1) or overwrites backups instead of skipping over it) but I concede that's my fault.

However, when you run the installer and deselect everything but menu overhaul itself (no extra MO options or tweaks) not only did it backup everything (FF7.exe, battle.lgp, char.lgp, chocobo.lgp, coaster.lgp, condor.lgp, high-us.lgp, world_us.lgp, kernel.bin, kernel2.bin, window.bin, scene.bin and flevel.lgp) it also started unpacking the flevel with ulgp (which crashed at field 45, because that's the first custom field apparently and ulgp is still not something one can use with modded flevels) which then resulted in a pretty broken flevel. It returned the flevel all the way to the state of the backup flevel in my case which obviously was a disaster. I managed to salvage about 20% of the work by using the windows previous version function since I didn't expect the installers would mess with the files inside the flevel when I had no actual flevel function selected. (Unless MO wants to go and edit all the textboxes, which in itself would make it completely incompatible with any flevel changing mod like NT or N7 and definitely needs to be an extra option)

I pretty much accepted the loss and moved on. I still want to fix the .exe issue but then I'm probably gonna leave the mods for a while.

I'm using 2-1

Post by: DLPB on 2014-09-28 07:55:35
MO option alone should not use ulgp (R02 doesn't, but I'll check R01 at later time), and ulgp should not have any issue with modded flevel....  But even so, a crash during that process should also not touch flevel.  In case it does, I'm unclear where your backup was...  from what you're saying, your main flevel and only backup was in data/field, the exact place where the game loads flevel from.-
.
The backup issue is mentioned in the readme, it's designed to stop people running the installer twice and eliminating the first backup.  For example, if using Reunion on a clean game, all files are backed up in the backup folder and are the clean versions.  They stay there until you manually delete them.  In order to make sure Reunion is backing up the current install, the folder has to be deleted beforehand.  This can prove a real hassle... because installing twice can lead to issues with some mods.  That's regardless of my mod, it's simply the nature of editing an already edited exe-flevel etc with newer versions. Reunion will restore all files from the backup folder before it begins the install process. 

I don't think there is any better way of really doing this...  the real issue here is that installing mods twice over the same files, and mixing mods together, can be a nightmare.

In this case you certainly needed a backup outside of ff7 root folder before installing.  It's an easy and costly mistake to lose your files by forgetting.

MO option alone should not use ulgp (R02 doesn't, but I'll check R01 at later time), and ulgp should not have any issue with modded flevel....  But even so, a crash during that process should also not touch flevel.  In case it does, I'm unclear where your backup was...  from what you're saying, your main flevel and only backup was in data/field, the exact place where the game loads flevel from.-
.
The backup issue is mentioned in the readme, it's designed to stop people running the installer twice and eliminating the first backup.  For example, if using Reunion on a clean game, all files are backed up in the backup folder and are the clean versions.  They stay there until you manually delete them.  In order to make sure Reunion is backing up the current install, the folder has to be deleted beforehand.  This can prove a real hassle... because installing twice can lead to issues with some mods.  That's regardless of my mod, it's simply the nature of editing an already edited exe-flevel etc with newer versions. Reunion will restore all files from the backup folder before it begins the install process. 

I don't think there is any better way of really doing this...  the real issue here is that installing mods twice over the same files, and mixing mods together, can be a nightmare.

In this case you certainly needed a backup outside of ff7 root folder before installing.  It's an easy and costly mistake to lose your files by forgetting.

The first time I ran the installer, about a week ago when I first noticed the .exe issue and hoped the MO option would fix it, I already saw that the R01 installer messed with the flevel but since it put my current flevel into the backup folder, I figured it would always do that. It didn't so technically my backup was that backup that wasn't created.
The agreement in the installer is nearly unreadable due to that sephiroth model that's placed over it btw and there was no other readme included until after the fact.

10/5/2012 FF7.exe

that's a terribly old ff7.exe and judging by that you probably also have all the other mod files terribly outdated.
Download the core-files from the first page and the flevel from twitter and follow the instructions.

Then I'm at a loss. The target data is correct. The formula is correct. Animation data is right. It works for me, too. I tested the 1-3 and 2-1 version just now.
What you encounter sounds like the target data is corrupted
Can you actually back out of the limit targeting by changing characters?

edit: I went and checked the .exe I uploaded too and it works for me there as well
So there is some sort of conflict on your end
Do you have any other mods installed?

I tried re-installing manually and I ran into a lot of problems.  I did as much as I could manually, but I'm running on a 64bit Windows 8 and 2012 re-release so I couldn't use Aali's custom driver to install the aeris revival pack.  I tried doing everything with bootleg again and I made sure that no new textures were added this time, and I still got the same result.

You should never run a Bootleg install over a previous Bootleg install. It will not work. It is possible to replace the Nightmare files Bootleg uses by the newer ones, just make sure they have the same filename. Unless Kuugen changed the way Nightmare installs (I doubt so), it will work without any problem.

What are you even doing with the aerith patch? Just follow the first page instructions. It doesn't say anything about installing other mods. I even supply a char.lgp so people don't have to install the aerith mod.

I run 64 bit win7 on the 1998 version and with or without driver, you just paste the files I uploaded on the first page in the right folders.

The answer is no they don't.  People on at least two other forums have made the claim that my Retranslation mod forces them to accept the correct translation for names and places instead of so-called canon.  This, despite the fact I have made it clear for well over two years that this is not the case.  It's also there on the main posts.

People are lazy.  The other day I recall someone asking me a question about my audio mod when the answer was on the first page.  It happens relentlessly and you are best off just ignoring people who ignore the main page and readmes.  Your last few posts indicate you are heading for a coronary.

I found a bug, unless this was an intentional or not.

But using potions, Ethers, Etc... Outside of Battle/Combat stat, Heals Normally Example..

A potion heals for 100,  But in battle stat, it will heal 200 Hp as it describes as. same with other items like those.

Unless I did something wrong within the Installation process which is a possibility

Tenko i'm probably an noob when comes to installing these type of mods, but i tried a few times with no success without bootleg, the folders the install process is different from mine, I use steam verison, confused where to put where,  example..

( Nightmare OST ) (Compatible with Steam. Put these in the music/vgmstream folder in the ff7 directory, i don't have that directory, i have a music folder but its in data/music, or data/music_ogg


And Also, how do i know if my verison is current? mine looks like some videos i seen, but not sure if its right, kinda guessed on it.


The way i did it was installed bootleg with nightmare mod, then manual installed core files and other files seems to be working
Title: Re: [FF7PC] Nightmare 7 - Total Game Conversion (1.02)
Post by: Tenko Kuugen on 2014-10-08 06:15:55
Each file I supply, excluding the OST, replaces an existing file with the same name. At worst, unrar the .rar and then search the directory for a file with that name and replace that file with the same named file I supplied.

I do not support an install method like that. You might have to run a Steam-to-98 converter (Somewhere in the forum but I don't know if it's necessary.) Alternatively, do a bootleg install with just the graphical options and then install my mod. But since I supply a char.lgp and battle.lgp, you will have to install custom models again.

If you have a music folder in /data, put the OST there and if that doesn't work (You will know immediately upon starting the game, at the prelude screen, even before starting a new game) just create the music/vgmstream folder yourself

By downloading the files from the first page of this thread (and the flevel from my twitter) and using these files and these files only. Everything else is unsupported.

Post by: Tenko Kuugen on 2014-10-27 23:52:06
I didn't upload it anywhere else because it's so big.
You CAN create the necessary char.lgp manually but I really can't recommend it.
To create the char.lgp manually, you need to look at the Aerith Revival mod from Ultima Espio. You basically need to add the animation files from that mod to your char.lgp
thats pretty much it

You need to have Aali's latest driver installed (which in turn breaks the .exe for some people)

Post by: Kefka on 2015-03-25 08:58:48
The combination is: 36, 10, 59, 97.

All of them are hidden within the Mansion, if you want to find them they way it's supposed to. In the bottom left room near the entrance, there's a letter on the floor which gives you hints about the whereabouts of 3 of the numbers.

The first one tells about the top of a chest, so just check all the treasure chests again after you opened them (it's the one upstairs near the safe).

The second hint "Behind the Ivory's short of tea and ray" might be hard to understand, but it means the piano on the ground floor (maybe because piano keys are made of ivory? Don't know). Look behind it and you'll read the number on the floor.

The third hint refers to a creaking sound that you can hear once you run over a certain spot near a chair in the right wing on the second floor (you have to listen very carefully to hear it). From this spot, go 5 steps left, 9 steps north, 2 steps left and 6 steps north. Search the floor where you'll read the third number.

The fourth number is acutally written on the letter near the entrance, but it's hidden. When the letter lets you select hints to the first 3 numbers, you can actually select an invisible fourth spot below them which tells you the fourth number.

This is the proper way to aquiring all the numbers.

Finally got the Basement Key! I tried solving the puzzle but I keep failing every single time. BTW, there are at least 96,059,601 possible combinations but I just needed one.

I even tried hacking my save file to get the key item using Jenova, Black Chocobo, FFVII Character Editor, Cheat Engine, etc. but the item is still not appearing.

I even tried using modding tools like Makou Reactor, ProudClod, etc. to find the code or to make a duplicate key but still nothing.

Then I realized about ten minutes ago that I still have the vanilla flevel.lgp so I used it instead and used the original 36-10-59-97 code and viola! Now on with the story... after I overwrite the vanilla flevel with the nightmare flevel of course.

Hey. Apologies in advance for this but I'm going to ask a ridiculously easy question:
How do I install this mod properly?
I've never really done a significant amount of modding before, but ff7 is my favourite game and when I stumbled on this mod I knew it would be worth a try.

I've downloaded all of the files (including the flevel thing) and pasted them all into the relevant folders with some success. I seem to have every other aspect of the mod working but not the difficulty bit! I've got the character models, the ost, the new lines of script. But still the same difficulty. Have I simply put the core files down wrong?

I'm trying to do this without using bootleg because I can't get that to run on my laptop. Is there some other step that I'm missing out that I should do before I drop the files in? I tried converting my release from Steam to the 97 version but that didn't seem to change a great deal.

Thanks in advance and sorry, again, for being so dense about this.

anyway im currently stuck on floor 66 of the shinra building and cant seem to stand on the toilet with the only options are to flush or walk away. am i missing something somewhere? I've been round the entire building and cant seem to find anything hint wise. sorry for such a silly question in the thread.

Hardcore mod is just a difficulty mod, so you'll only see changes with the battles after Disc 1. You will also encounter some added bosses through the end of the game.

This mod won't turn into the Hardcore Mod going through Disc 2, specifically because you'll still be using N7 items, equipment, characters, etc. Also, I'm fairly sure that every enemy has had their stats jacked up so it'll be a completely different experience on that front as well. Problem is, you'll likely encounter crashes/soft-locks while going through Disc 1 as there are bosses and enemies with AI problems or attacks that haven't been properly set with an animation (only Midgar was fully completed).

Just a quick question:

Was playing nightmare mode (loving it though it ends pretty much fully after you leave Midgar) but still...

When I got to the world map, the song playing in the background... WHAT IS IT?  It sounds super produced professionally, very orchestral and has like choir like singing throughout, really awesome song.  I've tried everything to figure it out and cannot seem to find it (used a song look up app on my iphone, tried looking through the files directly specifically this song which is titled ta.mp3 under the custom music part, obviously scoured through anything online and this site qhimm forums)  It's specifically from the Nightmare OST which is AMAZING but it's bugging me about the first overworld map song cuz I'm sure that I've heard it somewhere else before but cannot figure it out for the life of me...

Any info would be greatly appreciated!

Most of this mod actually works great for me, a few issues with the game crashing entering battles.

Like at the first reactor, the was a random battle in the exact same spot before reaching the boss, I used save anywhere and disabled the mod until I cleared that screen. Again just before the plate fell, there was a 'random' battle in the exact same position every load so I did the same as above. Then again when getting the chocobo materia after talking to the chocobos (and dancing) the battle initializes but just before the battle menus appear it crashes. Same again during the flashback after the monster breaks out of the pod, crashes just after loading, bit of a bugger but not to much of an issue 7th Heaven is amazing I just disable the difficulty mod and then reenable after that points that had issues. Loving the battles so far the only infuriating one I had was Tseng and that other guy, when pretty much everyone is afflicted with confuse I sort  of sat back and waited for one party to kill the other, amazing I (or the AI) won. But thats probably my Materia setup to blame.

Main fix is I turn off all random battles and thats avoided most issues. Thanks again for the great work you put into this. But yeah If you remember the safe combination let me know, I realized there are a few posts about it earlier, so sorry for being a broken record and missing them.

I can download the Battle.LGP and Nightmare OST files but why can't I download the Core files and Char.LPG files?

Links probably died after the author dropped the project. t's only completed up to the point you leave Midgar, so I wouldn't worry about this one.

New Threat is the top gameplay mod. Go check it out :)
