Title: Japanese Modding
Post by: Sega Chief on 2017-03-24 15:20:22
Got curious about this recently, but is there a modding scene for FF7 in Japan? I'm wondering if they have gameplay mods and stuff.

I have always wondered that too. If Anything they would way ahead of us, not to stereotype. Just to gues

Thinking about it, I am not sure at all where he is from.  But I do remember Sweden popping up for some reason....  He's got to be the most elusive game forum admin ever.

Looks like Sweden ... His local time is GMT+2 (summer time) and Sweden is in this time zone.

Hmm, might explain why his status said Japan, Tokyo.
Anyway that doesn't answer the first question, does it? I'm not aware of another big moding community for ff7 than qhimm. And I guess there isn't one or at last a very very small one. We shouldn't forget that this game's home is the psx and Japan, so only a minority played it on PC. Reminds me, wasn't the re-release the first time of an official release of FF7 on PC in Japan?

I think Kaldarasha is right, I was interested in learning about the Japanese game while I was learning the language. The only PC version released in Japan is the re-release, with some interesting changes to the game mechanics. I guess for it to properly display the dialogue. You can only mod the lgp's, and only make graphical changes. If you even try to unzip and wrap the flevel the game will no longer display dialogue correctly, for some reason it breaks the file. Same with the kernel. So any mods that require Aali's driver cant be installed. Modding the Japanese version would require brand new tools. I've tried looking for Japanese modding forums, but at the time nothing came up
