Title: FF7 personal mod for upload
Post by: Xela20 on 2019-01-10 16:07:38
Hey everyone,

Been searching the forum and the internet for the past 20 minutes but I couldn't find the answer I was looking for. How would I go about packaging and uploading a mod I've created?

I want community feedback on my ideas.

Thanks

what kind of mod is it?
Are you trying to release it for 7th heaven?

Gameplay

If 7th Heaven is the easiest. Does it have the tools once I install it?

Ok heres how you install a mod via 7th heaven

1. organize your mod in a folder and inside that folder make the following folders
   battle for your scene.bin
   flevel for your flevel.lgp or flevelchunks
   kernel for your kernel and kernel2
   and any other of the folders that would be in direct mode for any other changes.

2. in 7th heaven -> workshop -> pack/unpack IRO -> pack iro -> browse for your mod folder and pack it

3. go to your library tab and import -> import from iro library .> browse for your new iro and import it.

4. refresh your list and the iro will be at the bottom of the list. activate and test to make sure it works

5. upload to a file hosting service like mega, mediashare, Nexus, etc.

6. make a thread about your mod, including what it does, the link to get it, and install instructions (for iro it will be just download the iro and either place in your ff7/mods/7th heaven folder or import from iro library)

There are more steps that can be done to add a thumbnail to your iro, give it config options in 7th heaven, and a few other things. If you need any of those just unpack another similar IRO and look at how they organized the mod.xml
