There is one glitch so far!  It seems like the backgrounds don't always load 100% of the time when in Triple Triad.  I'll let Omzy know and we'll keep working on it!

You can find it here. (http://sourceforge.net/projects/libpng/files/zlib/1.2.3/zlib123-dll.zip/download)

It is a png lib DLL you need for most mods and emulators.

Also -- I'm currently finishing Tripod v1.1 and the text and icons are really coming along nicely!  I will post a youtube video with some gameplay as well as some screenshots when the project is complete.

Hi, nice mod, i loved it!  ;D

Do you have Tonberry v1.2 installed?  Can you uninstall/reinstall the mod?  Also - make sure you have the Steam client open and not just the FF8 exe.  Just to be sure - restart your computer. for some reason, i think directx9 needs to be reset sometimes. (not sure though)  Let me know if any of this works.

Well it looks by me the same, but I believe that some files aren't the same in different languages (my game is German). I haven't looked into that closer so I'm not sure. However the first Seed project had a special version for German.

I had the same problem with him. I restarted and it didn't work. Background in card game is not HD quality.

Make sure you have the latest version of "hashmap" from the Tonberry page.  It should work with v1.2 and later.
Also - update your graphics drivers - this step has helped a lot of people with DirectX issues.
If that doesn't work, try re-installing Tripod and then reboot when you're done with everything.

Are you playing the English language version of the game?
Can you post your system specs?

I use Tonberry 1.4 and hashmap 1.2. So, I tried reinstalling tri pod and restarting many times but it didn't work. I 'll update my gpu driver and feedback later.
Here 's my specs:
Windows 7 ultimate 32 bit
Core 2 duo E7400 2.8 Ghz
Ram 3 Gb

Check the image files that aren't showing up in Photoshop and if the layers show Background (locked) then right click it and click 'Layer from background" so that it just says Layer 0. Save the file and try again. If they are already 'Layer 0' then it may be a Tonberry issue which I will look into.

I'm not even sure if i understand what you're telling me here to do (i dont even have photoshop) and something very weird just happened. Without having to restart the game or anything the new background and numbers popped up but only once. After i won i went for another card game match, and back to old background and old numbers. I was so excited to see it work just once, but what could the problem be? What could cause it to work one time and not the other? I didnt even exit the game or anything, really weird.

PS: If it helps, i'm using Windows 32bit and couldnt even get any mods to work prior to Tonberry 1.4.

Edit: It worked again, that's weird, seems to be working now, let's see how long it will stay that way.

However, this error occured a few times:

(http://s21.postimg.org/61vz5wohj/Unbenannt.jpg)

Seems to be a mix of both, how the heck could that happen? Well anyway, maybe by pointing out this error, the modders will gain more insight and knowledge and hopefully can fix or avoid similar bugs in the future. You guys doing great and im really happy that the mods are finally working for me and very grateful despite the few bugs here and there. Rock on guys ;)

I'm pretty sure that after we had that last formatting issue, I went through every image file and ensured that they were in the proper format - so all current releases shouldn't have any weird background locked mode issues anymore.  I even get the 1/3 screen issue every now and then... and when it happens, it stays that way until you restart the game... and sometimes it happens on the new title screen as well.  Pretty sure it's a hashing problem, but I'm here to assist in any way!

Ok, thanks for the clarification! It is definitely a Tonberry problem. I will try to work on it for the next release.

Hey Thanks for your hard work, I really like this mod, the borders of the cards in the menu are not all alligned the same will this be fixed in the future? Also when playing the game itself I find the borders of the cards low res compared to everything else do you plan on updating them in the future? Thanks again

EDIT: Also I found that when choosing cards during a game or simple moving the cursor up and down at certain points, the background card map will flicker/change shape slightly in certain areas. some parts of the card map will get thinner while others get thicker.

The alignment issue is something I've done minor fixes to already in the Menu, but I will be coming out with a hi-res version of Tripod in the future, with hi-res borders, fancy text, and more modern icons -- but that won't be for a while now :)

I'm not sure what you mean by the background flickering. You'll have to post a screenshot or video clip - I can't seem to re-create it.  also - are you playing on a non-english version of the game?

I've actually made 8 dollars from donations in the past month, which surprised the hell out of me! (THANKS GUYS! :D)  I think I spent over 100 hours on the Tripod mod - and right now, I'm in a tight spot without much time.  Between not having enough work this summer and my car dying, I'm broke and without a vehicle, and have to prioritize my time.

However, my channel will be updated regularly and I will have new tidbits and fun things coming around the corner!

Hi everyone!

I really like this mod, but I always thought the borders look very blurry while the original borders looked very filigree.

So I tried to make borders (and backgrounds) myself (except for quistis borders, the decoration shape is from  deviantart, may have to change it because of licencing etc...), please tell me if you like them :)

Thanks!  I love your borders! We should work together to get them into the game. 

Just a few issues to consider:
1- The Quistis border decoration will have to be replaced by something else (needs to be original art)
2- You should take into account the fact that the borders are stretched by the game when it imports them from the Mod. 
3- Tonberry only allows for 4x the original pixel resolution - and since that image is then stretched out, some of your details may be lost in the transition. (such as fine line/edge detail and gradients)
4- I have no idea where the background hues are kept for Triple Triad, and they currently aren't moddable - but they are for the in-game menu.  Everything I dealt with for Triple Triad had a transparency associated with it.
5- Triple Triad and the in-menu cards are two separate mods essentially.  They would have to be independently modded if you want your borders to be implemented for the in-game card menu.

BTW -- I love the grey, green, blue, purple color scheme and would like to expand on it further.

I am really happy that you like them :D

To your issues:
1 - Yeah I thought so. I will replace them, shouldn't be much of a problem.
2 + 3 I created the borders with help of your images of this mod so resolutions should be alright. I experimented a bit with the stretching it looked okay when I resized it from rectangle to square and back
4 Background could be bit of a problem. I don't know if its possible, because the colored glow is a semi-transparent layer and not part of the background. I also couldn't find any background-image in the mod images - my hope was that you may know a solution  ;D
5 Yes I am aware of that. But as far as I understood it, we just don't have to use transperancies here, right? Or do you think we need another background-image?


I'll will change the decoration and then upload the psd-files (or any other format you need). Do you want them rectangular or cubic?^^

Unfortunately from what I've seen, Tonberry can't implement semi-transparent layers for Triple Triad unless they were originally intended to be that way - so I think you would have to remove the gradients for this to work.
Also - your background wouldn't work unless we could replace the original backgrounds (blue/pink) but considering we have no way of finding them currently, we should just stick with the originals.  They show your cards vs. your opponents, so having the different colored backgrounds is important - and would require the backgrounds to be 100% transparent.

After you fix #1, could you remove the semi-transparent color gradient layers and the background image entirely and just send me the PSD of the borders you have with a transparent background?  I don't need any characters - I can superimpose your borders over my own fairly easily, and I'd like to test them to see what they would look like in-game.  I would like to add your borders to my next Tripod release which will feature updated Text and Elemental Icons! It will be released as a "Tripod Deluxe Edition" release.  I would give you credit, of course :)

Cubic would be best - it would save me time resizing everything. Thanks!

I'm also considering doing the 4 translations for this mod like I am doing for the SeeD Reborn Project.  It should take considerably less time to make the Tripod Translation mod happen than it has for SeeD Reborn which has turned into a larger undertaking than I originally planned.

Hi all! I faced the same issue of Fullbuster (number and background doesn't change), it's normal? I don't see any new post about this problem so i don't know if it should be solved or no. Do you think it might depends on my Italian language version?

It might be because of your italian version, but I doubt it.  Try rebooting your comp (which restarts all directX and steam drivers) and let me know if the problem persists.  Sometimes, Tonberry will glitch and only provide the images and not the backgrounds/text for some reason.  Restarting DirectX and Steam entirely seems to do the trick for those people.  If your issue is because of the italian version, we'll have to address that soon.

Ok, trying other matches i've noticed that cards and number are loaded correctly, but the background are loaded only the half. Exploring the mod's directory i've noticed that basically only the file cardsback_13 is loaded, while the other named cardsback_1 no.

I removed the semi-transperancys and backgrounds and added a (free to use) corner since It would take me a while to create these corners myself :D

This is a very well organized PSD.  Thanks so much for your excellent work!  I may place my own corner art (since I've been working on my own for the next update anyway) but in every other way, this is perfect for the next release!

First, thanks for your work and mod! But I have the same 1/3 problem... One part is HQ, the rest is vanilla. Using Tonberry 1.5 incl. Hashmap 1.3 and Tripod Triple Triad HQ 1.1.

Pictures:
http://i.imgur.com/yWTLZZG.jpg
http://i.imgur.com/KZWmqFu.jpg

I play in English, because in German Roses & Wine doesn't work at all. I played it in English years ago on PSX, it was released way before the German version and had more FPS.

I mean any other texture works, I use the following mods and they work so far:

SeeD Reborn - Menu Overhaul 3.2
Project Eden 1.0
Horizon Pack 2.1
Character Models (from FatedCourage incl. GF models from rufoos)
Final Fantasy VIII 1080p FMVs
Roses & Wine 0.3b Final
Controller Buttons Xbox360

The backgrounds has a couple of glitches here and there, but in all it's 98% perfect. The models include all main characters and 3 more plus all the GFs. The all seem to work, just not the Tripod Triple Triad HQ 1.1 background. So I would say, it's a Tripod Triple Triad HQ 1.1 problem and nothing else.

First, thanks for your work and mod! But I have the same 1/3 problem... One part is HQ, the rest is vanilla. Using Tonberry 1.5 incl. Hashmap 1.3 and Tripod Triple Triad HQ 1.1.

Pictures:

I play in English, because in German Roses & Wine doesn't work at all. I played it in English years ago on PSX, it was released way before the German version and had more FPS.

I mean any other texture works, I use the following mods and they work so far:

SeeD Reborn - Menu Overhaul 3.2
Project Eden 1.0
Horizon Pack 2.1
Character Models (from FatedCourage incl. GF models from rufoos)
Final Fantasy VIII 1080p FMVs
Roses & Wine 0.3b Final
Controller Buttons Xbox360

The backgrounds has a couple of glitches here and there, but in all it's 98% perfect. The models include all main characters and 3 more plus all the GFs. The all seem to work, just not the Tripod Triple Triad HQ 1.1 background. So I would say, it's a Tripod Triple Triad HQ 1.1 problem and nothing else.

Are you using the new version of Tonberry?  Enhanced v1.6?  I believe this will fix the issue if you're playing using the English version.  Let me know if this helps!

hi mcindus! I've the 1/3 problem too, reinstalled today ff8 from ssteam and usng tonberry 1.6 with the hasmaps linked there. no changes
The problem showed up just some days ago, so it is not present from the beginning. Also it seems that the number over the cards are now very pixellated

Big fan of this mod, but I'm also unable to get the mat and the numbers looking sharp.

I was using Tonberry 1.5 and I had the 1/3 background problem, as well as the old (pixelated) card numbers. The cards themselves looked great.

Following Mcindus' suggestion, I upgraded to Tonberry 1.6 with his "Tripod_hm.csv" in \steamapps\common\FINAL FANTASY VIII\tonberry\hashmap, and now the new background won't at all--I still get the vanilla mat. Other mods seem to be working fine.

I ran into this issue too and think I've fixed it.
Try the new hashmap files for SeeD Reborn and Tripod here:

I just updated them with fixes.
Let me know if that works for you!

Thanks for the prompt response!

This fixed the card text but the background/mat still won't load. I disabled all other mods and only have your new "Tripod_hm.csv" in my "FINAL FANTASY VIII\tonberry\hashmap\" folder. I tried it at several different resolutions as well (just in case) but no dice.

I have a question. The problem still persists for me as well. I tried to debug and got this. ...Is this what I need to hash? I've never done anything outside of characters.

This could also be due to hashing collisions.  Make sure you have collisions.csv and hash2map.csv from Tonberry v1.5 - I'm not sure why the problem would persist unless the game perhaps has different background hashes for the different discs? 
Anyway - yes, that's the file to hash, FatedCourage.  Just make sure you have it pointing to the correct cardsmat file.

BTW, I have fixes for the non-English versions, but I'm making new upscaled text for them before I release the fixes.

wow I'm stupid. These indeed seem to be the missing textures.  Thanks FatedCourage and mavirick for helping with this!

Original hash post updated with new Tripod Links!

*NEW spanish, french, and german Hashcodes available!

Whew... That's good! I was afraid I might've posted codes that could potentially mess up your mod. I'm still learning, but I'm glad I was able to help.

Edit: Er... Well, I decided to play a little more TT and found more missing backgrounds. Huh.

cardsback_1,12927773727215752527
cardsback_1,3704401690360976719
cardsback_1,3704401690361501135

cardsmat_1,8598328769148269007
cardsmat_13,3708564034557749701

These codes did indeed fix the problem for that. But if they cause problems or something, let me know. :D

Edit #2: Yeah... Found more. Maybe you're right about the hashes changing depending on the disc that you're on.

Edit #3: I found all the codes I could. It shouldn't revert back for the most part. If I had to wager one place it might, it'd be space. I don't have a save file for that point to check. But if things do revert, it'd be nice to know where and at what point in the game. I also found one point where the card text/numbers reverted in Esthar. I didn't hash it because I didn't know which one was the correct one.

You're awesome!  Thanks for those codes!  I was hoping my suspicions weren't founded, but it looks like a LOT of hashcodes change based on disc/area.  Objmap codes don't change per area, so that's why some things disappear.  If you find the objmap code for whatever is missing, it should work.  (I found a duplicate or two while hashing enemies so far.  b garden with geezard texture was scary as hell lol)

Also - In other news:
I have just finished and released the official Spanish version of Tripod!  Enjoy!

I've also updated Tripod in the OP with the new hashmap codes that FatedCourage provided for Tonberry v1.6

Post by: FatedCourage on 2015-02-22 00:58:34
No problem. I really like your mod and want to see it at it's best. Yeah... Hashmap codes are a lot more tedious to get. But unlike objmap codes, they yield less glitches. But you are right about finding the codes for the missing textures. It does work. Downside is, a lot of things can disappear from just one code. Just one code from Selphie can cause Zell's mom to go invisible, the T-Rex in the Training Center to lose it's body, and other character's in your group to disappear in some scenes. But you have given me a pretty good idea I'd like to try out! At least until the new hashing algorithm is complete.

First off I just wanna say thank you for how much on all you provided for final fantasy viii. Your the reason why I bought it on steam, I love your work.

But I'm having some issues with triple traid. The back of the cards and cardsmat_1 are HQ.  The rest are the original graphics. I've delete every mod and tonberry and re installed  it back. But it seems like its not working. Every other mod is working beautifully. 

Current Mods


Update
The Problem only occurs after a battle. If I go straight to card duel the mod works. But if I fought any moster before hand the mod only halfway works.

Pretty sure there is no problem with your mods. I think there is just a hashcode missing that only occurs after battle. What location are you at when this happens? This helps locate the code needed to fix your problem.

Yeah, there are some areas that have special codes that need to be added for one of the background tiles...  there are bound to be a couple of missing codes.  Could you do me a huge favor?  Open the game and then your save... and go to the area right before the card battle.  Get into a battle (to replicate the problem) and then right before you enter the card game, alt-tab out of the game and enable 'debug' mode.  Then go back into the game and start the card game.... right before you select your cards, disable the 'debug' mode and then send me any bitmap from the 'nomatch' folder that looks like the Triple Triad background. (should be a low-res bitmap).  You can send it to me via Gmail at [email protected]  I will have a code for you right away :)

You have a game in what language? If in English, try my hashmap
My game is in English and I have just tried your hashmap but it still doesnt show the numbers or the background properly, only the card pictures.

in game folder \FINAL FANTASY VIII\textures you must have two folders with textures "ca" and "mc"
do you have these folders?

Yeah I have both folders. ca has 4 folders within it and the mc folder has 10 folders within it.

I can actually see the updated backgrounds in steamapps > common > FFVIII > textures > ca > cardsmat and the numbers in steamapps > common > FFVIII > textures > ca > cardstext.

Ahh I dont have a Hashmap folder in my Tonberry v1.5 folder. My hashmaps are sitting directly in the tonberry folder inself. Mine looks like steamapps\common\FINAL FANTASY VIII\tonberry. I'll try to reinstall tonberry and see if the Hashmap folder appears. Thanks for your help :)

You should use Tonberry Enhanced 2.04 with the proper hashmaps - this should fix your issues

Hey McIndus! Thx alot for your mods! They are awesome! My eyes felt a bit achy when The opening ended, the first time I launched the game unmoded :-D Now I can play it again to remind me the old good time of innocence!

Yet I have an annoying issue with Tripod...
The right part of the background doesn't apply :-s
I'm using Tonberry 2.04 with the latest collisions and hash2map plus the latest version of your other mods (SR FR + SCP CB FR, HP 2.1, LC 1.2), Flame Rebirth 1.1 R&W W04 and Project Eden 1.0!
I'm playing in french but I tried to launch in english and the right part was still missing!

I just thought that I should try a clean install with Tripod only, I would do so tomorrow and let you know the results! What should I do if I find a collision? What would you do? Do I have to modify the collisions file?

I tried debug mode and I'm finding the 2 right parts of the triad background int the nomatch folder... What should I do..?

I'm wondering how hashmap files work so I could fix this myself... I downloaded BerryMapper and tried the cardsback_1.png and it gave me a different hashcode than in the tripod_hm file, I'm wondering why :-s I dug into the csv file and saw that each backgorund file has multiple hashcode and I'm wondering why... Some lines are reapeated in the file, the exact same lines, "same background file,same hashcode" and I'm wondering why ^^'

Please enlighten me about all of this so I could fix the issue asap ;-)
Thx again!

You can put any of the images you find in the 'nomatch' folder that have anything to do with Tripod and send them to me in a .zip file.  I can then hash them and update the french hashmap with the correct codes! thank you!  you can do this yourself, but if you send them to me, I will update the hashmap for ALL of the french users out there!  thanks! :)

Cool! I'm glad you're still working on that project :-D So, I made a clean install with Tripod and basics, I mean RaW ;-) Impossible to play with those lame sounds and musics from default...
I launched the game from EN.exe, Tripod working just fine, debug here : https://mega.nz/#!xNQCyQqC!Y-IgfD1Ekwzdr7j4CW3CreLmPdQlSutKdiH0eUt-0Es
Then I launched from FR.exe, Tripod right background panel missing, debug here : https://mega.nz/#!sN4XAICb!IRULulsUeEt_p7AliDQZCwmmt-A0LPIkPwXlVgx0wqM
Then I installed all the mods and launched back from EN.exe, Tripod still working! No collisions! Perfect!

Actually, just a FR version of the hashmap is needed! I hope I gave you all what's relevant to build so ;-)

First off I just wanna say thank you for how much on all you provided for final fantasy viii. Your the reason why I bought it on steam, I love your work.

But I'm having some issues with triple traid. The back of the cards and cardsmat_1 are HQ.  The rest are the original graphics. I've delete every mod and tonberry and re installed  it back. But it seems like its not working. Every other mod is working beautifully. 

Current Mods
  • TonberryEnhanced 1.61
    • collisions.csv
    • hash2map.csv
  • Project Eden v1.0
  • SeeD_Reborn(v3.2)
  • LunarCry_v2.1
  • HorizonPack_v2.1
    • have all the updated Hash map
    • and obj


Update
The Problem only occurs after a battle. If I go straight to card duel the mod works. But if I fought any moster before hand the mod only halfway works.

I have the same problem, the text numbers for the cards will be fine but after a while it'll go back to original, i havent verified it as a result from battle, but I'm pretty sure thats what it is.. the first time you go to Fisherman's Horizon in Disc 2 is one of those times..
My current mods:
Tonberry Enhanced v2.04
Roses and Wine (RaW) W04
SeeD Reborn v3.2 (with Tonberry v1.6 Hashmap File [latest])
Project Eden v1.0
Tripod v1.1 (with Tonberry v1.6 Hashmap File [latest])
Rebirth Flame v1.1 (with included Tonberry hashmap file)
HorizonPack v2.1 (with Tonberry v1.6 Hashmap File [latest])
Lunar Cry v1.2 (with included Tonberry hashmap and obj file)
Apocalypse v1.0 (with included Tonberry hashmap file)
FF8 Controller Buttons - HID Interface Xbox360 Buttons
BattleField Upscale v1.0 (with hashmap file)

and applicable texture folders of course.
