Excellent! This was basically the last mod I was waiting for outside of DLBP's finalized translation to buy FF7 again!

I might have missed something though, but do you need to be a premium member of uplea to download your game fields since it is over 2.5gb?

satsuki,

the only two links that do not require registering for download are the World Map and Combat Fields. Could you consider using a Google account or finding better providers? A torrent might also be alright...
Title: Re: [FF7PC-98] Waifu release fulls packs
Post by: satsuki on 2015-10-27 16:52:58
no link require registering, you can download from free, only a captcha
Title: Re: [FF7PC-98] Waifu release fulls packs
Post by: Salk on 2015-10-28 07:50:56
The uplea link requires Premum account.

The 1fichier works but at first I didn't see the link, only the attempt at making me register.

Thanks for your help.

All the graphic have been extracted from the gui 2.0.8:
http://forums.qhimm.com/index.php?topic=9151.0

I won't apdapt the menu to eng version of the game because the font spacing (and some char width, height ...) as been redone 100% to be adapted to the neo-midgard french retransation with special char etc, it won't adapt out of box to the eng version.

Feel free to adapt it but don't use the font, you'll get bug with them in the eng version of the game

Repeating darksouls q, gfx arw gorgeous, i dled them all, but also dont know where to extract them. Thx for all the effort! :-)

Also a side question, my laptop appears not to support opengl 2.0,so im using 0711b aalis. Its probably my old laptop('s gpu), cant make field world and magic textures to work neither through 7H nor bootleg. So i searched and found this thread. Maybe this will work...

I got them to work, the ff7 7thheaven converter places a mod folder into your ff7 main directory. I just placed the field model folder included here "Char" "field" into the mod/textures directory. Before I was just putting them into the mod folder which is why they didn't work. So basically extract all these files into the mod/textures folder as they are, if they are already in folders of their own then that's how it is, the spell effects aren't and so I think that is how they are supposed to be as well.

NPOT means Non-Power of Two. It refers to textures whose width or height aren't an exact power of two (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Power_of_two#The_first_96_powers_of_two).

I'm not far in but the only ones ive noticed are in the sector 5 reactor area, if you turn on the help cursor the green arrows that indicate ladders are blurry/blank textures, seems Satsuki forgot/missed those or something.

Is there any option to give good karma or smtn to you guys for help? dont see any buttons... and how do i attach pics, also dont see any buttons for that.

ok thx olearyf i was just about to ov that one, good i didnt. I compared them and so no diff at all, so ill keep the old ones. here are screens:           https://app.box.com/s/6ehm5zt4cck6eb8g1yp1bcqjekmsq3zz

Btw are these better or Omzy's FF7 Field Pack ones? though it only has field in it, but i dont see any difference again, i posted screens in previous folder link also. if not, to delete that useless stuff off my pc. :-) Im staring at the pics comparing them, it - seems - that omzys are just a microscopic fraction sharper, or maybe im just halucinating from all the screen staring at 5am ;-) Something im sure i wont ever notice in gameplay. And comapring folder sizes, waifus is usualy larger and i tend to identify larger w better quality...? Last q and im done.

PS for those wanting 7H + Reunions beacause go here. :-)

Combined with MLAA and sweetfx it will look very nice :)
So.
Does this work with the "Steam-version" or do you have to do something else?

does The reunion mod (I know it's a collection of mods, which can be had through 7H, thinking more about the new timers in R04b) work together with 7H?

Btw Decayrate whats with MLAA and sweetfx?  Iirc sweetfx is some shader, but is it compatible with opengl<2.0?

And does anyone know any other gfx update that might be even better that these waifu ones? 2.0 is going to be out soon, today, tmrw, i got all unpacked just wanna check last minute gfx improvement if there are any. :-)

Some of the Filters and and Shaders work with the aali driver, yet some only works with the steam version.
I suspect you could change the hook to work with aali, or change aali's driver to work with .h filters
Haven't tried my self, since I'm no coder.
Only a little knowledge in cvars.

Go to reshade.me and download the Reshade framework, bunch of filters and shaders.
Use mediator.exe to change setting via sliders instead of text (quicker for me)
You can also make profiles.

We should never called it a downgrade from begin with. But yes you downgrade the executable to the original release version, but every other fixes will still remain. Graphicwise it will be an improvement over the steam version and you get this fine modfolder with the new opengl driver.

You simply used noise filtering lv 2 instead of lv1, i used lv 1 because lv2 remove to much details and blur more.
For the single packs in mediafire i'll do it as soon as possible but my internet connexion is not realy stable now and i can't realy upload big files.

I have tried my best to remember and credit the other mod authors.

Grimmy, I need your help.
Along with your HQ condor background, I tried a MOD condor.lgp to play Condor minigame.
I forgot where I got MOD condor.lgp cause it was long time ago and had not time to try it until today.
Maybe Tifa's bootleg ? I am not sure.

With the MOD and your HQ background, I felt that fighters are coarserough comparing to monsters in this lgp and HQ back.

Condor mini-game image played;

If you have time to improve shapes of these fighters, the game will give more fun to FF7 players.
If you know the work has been done, please let me know the link of it.
I am very much looking forward to it.

Why only the old PC port, what about the Steam version? I can't find any mods for the Steam port backgrounds.
You can convert the Steam version, since the old PC port is pretty much the most supported version for mods.

Warning, like i said in first post, it's a french pack so the menu and some minigame need to be tweaked to english version

Ouch... I did not expect that.

We need someone to do the "tweaking" for the English version or, if it is an easy thing to do, we can do it ourselves.

Any takers?

Which scenes were optimized? It's better to post a separate download for them, rather than having to redo a 4GB+ download.

Grimmy already did the English versions for all the minigames. His post about it is on page 1.

But satsuki posted his warning only two days ago.

Doesn't it mean that there has been some changes since the first release?

@EQ2Alyza
There was lots of optimised field, i haven't listed all of them and as the old archive was down, i've made up a new full archive.

@Salk
The minigame have not been optimised so the Grimmy version's are ok
The only one left is the menu but you can use the avalanche one for exemple ^^

Since I am going to use Reunion's Menu Enhancement (http://forums.qhimm.com/index.php?topic=14914.msg209228#msg209228 (http://forums.qhimm.com/index.php?topic=14914.msg209228#msg209228)), do you think that is enough?

If you have the field pack 1 and 2 from 7th heaven already, any point on downloading the 4gb file in the original post? In 7th heaven Part 1 is 6/7gb, part 2 is around 3gb. whats the difference between the 4gb on original post and the two downloads in 7th heaven? I already have the 3gb download from the program, the 6/7gb download kept failing so I'm going to try to manually download it.
Satsuki your work is amazing, thank you for the eye candy (and everyone else who contributed of course)

Look underneath the Download button to see the description of each part. Part 1 is Omzy and yarLson textures, and Part 2 is satsuki textures. The satsuki textures are 3.3GB because of the IRO compression, but once they are downloaded, 7H will unpack them to the same size that's here. The last update for them in 7H was 12/26/2016, so it includes the latest version from here.

I guess the naming of Part 1 and Part 2 sounds like you need both, but you don't. If your download is freezing, then try not to download more than one mod at a time. There's nothing I can do about it. Google Drive and MEGA are the download hosts and are horrible when it comes to throttling and halting a huge amount of downloads at once. About the only thing left I could do is just separate each of the three options into their own download and label them Field Textures - Omzy, Field Textures - yarLrson, Field Textures - satsuki.

I appreciate the quick response. Loving the 2nd field pack so its good to know i dont need the first one. Makes sense why part one is double the size, it has two versions in it.

...The satsuki textures are 3.3GB because of the IRO compression...

Witch compressor use IRO ?
I use 7-z LZMA solid archive with 128kb dic to have the smallest possible size but your compression is about 25% smaller.
are you doing some sort of color reduction or it is pure compression ?

Thanks

I don't know what compressor it uses. Iros made the 7th Heaven tool, so you can try asking him, but he's disappeared for awhile now.

EDIT: I have loaded a game with your mod folder imported into 7H, and compared it to an IRO imported into 7H and there is no visual quality loss that I can notice. Now that I thought about it, I forgot...When I use the pack/unpack tool in 7H, we can choose different options for packing. With any texture mod, I always choose "No compression" so that they keep their truest quality. What happens with the 25% smaller size, I'm still not sure :|

It can be visualy loseless but transcoded too (I think about it because solid LZMA is the best compressor i know so far)
The only way to be 100% sure that the files aren't modified is to do a checksum (md5, sha-1....) of the original files then of the extracted files.
If the checksum is bad then the files have been altered.

Satsuki is it possible to do Waifu Upscale on ff8 backgrounds? Project Eden is much better than vanilla, but I don't think it's perfect.

On a side note the dressing room in the Honeybee  Inn has a problem with its door. The red of it is black when the door is closed.

Does the remove the light layer batch file exist somewhere?

I'm not sure what you mean by that. It's a .bat file? Do you know the filename of it?

It was pitbrat who made it and it removes all upscaled light effect textures. And yes it was a bat file.

No need to rush. I only wanted to know if you may know a link for it. Maybe I have it on my external drive too. Either way would be good to have it uploaded somewhere.

Would you please be so kind to report more of these instances if you happen to notice?

I love the idea of using this modification but I'd hate to see graphical issues/bugs, which would really break immersion.

Hopefully satsuki is going to fix this first problem soon! :)

Thanks for this mod, you did what Square Enix should have done when they released their "HD version" on Steam.

My only request would be if you may divide the archive to several parts, and host it on another site than mediafire : Google Drive, or Microsoft one aren't restrained by speed limit.

Thanks,

Nico

You simply used noise filtering lv 2 instead of lv1, i used lv 1 because lv2 remove to much details and blur more.
For the single packs in mediafire i'll do it as soon as possible but my internet connexion is not realy stable now and i can't realy upload big files.

Just wondering if the mediafire files now uses noise reduction 2 or 3. Thanx
