This small mod when installed will (sadly) remove every instance of the Snowboarding mini-game from Final Fantasy VII. Why would anyone possibly want to do such a thing? Well, unfortunately, we still don't have a way (as far as I know) to mod the snowboarding mini-game and replace its chibi-style character models with better ones. That means that this forum's most popular mods such as Reunion and Tifa's Bootleg all suddenly hit a problem when Cloud starts snowboarding and suddenly reverts to his original blocky model.

One day someone will figure out how to mod this mini-game, but until then this is, I'm sorry to say, the easiest way to ensure that the game graphics remain in a consistent style while playing a modded version of the game. Don't hate me, I love the snowboarding mini-game as much as anyone, it's just a temporary fix. (Note that the motorbike and chocobo racing mini-games CAN and have been modded successfully and so are not affected in any way by this removal mod).

After installation there will no longer be any references to how to control a snowboard in the NPC dialog in Icicle Inn and after the player leaves the map and the NPC shouts "Be careful!" it then fades to black and the player finds themselves lying unconscious at the Great Glacier entrance sign, where-after the game continues as normal.

The Gold Saucer version of the mini-game simply says "Out of Order".

To install:

Extract the zip file and place the new folder in the Final Fantasy VII root directory (where FF7.exe or FF7_en.exe are found).
Double Click on "RUN ME.bat".
Press Enter when instructed.

Nice idea for other people who want consistency in graphics
