Title: [FF7 PC] Bonez' Sound Effect Suite - 3.0 Update(7/25/2020)
Post by: Bonez on 2020-03-08 06:55:25

This project started out about a year ago as a little mod to just replace the FF7 UI sounds with the UI sounds from FFXIII. Since that time, it has evolved into something far more... After following the community and modding the game for several years, I noticed the graphical and musical mods were growing and advancing but the sound effects department was totally stalled. I mean, it's an entire 1/3 of what your senses are taking in, besides the visuals and music! I wanted something to match the beautiful/advanced graphical and musical mods provided by the very talented authors/creators of this community... So, I present to you most complete sound effect replacement mod currently available!

The goal of this mod is to give the sound effects of FF7 a complete overhaul/update with carefully chosen, professional quality, accurately timed, equalized, and edited sounds; on a scale previously never achieved. I'm very proud of what I've managed to accomplished so far and I hope everyone enjoys it as much as I do.

This mod currently replaces/updates ~480 magic/battle/world sound effects with many more to come.

*Disclaimer: This is NOT the same mod of mine that is included in the Qhimm Media mod. That mod only changes the menu sounds. Some people are apparently under the impression that they are one and the same.

Todo:



This is an IRO file which will require 7th Heaven Mod Manager (see: http://forums.qhimm.com/index.php?topic=19533.0)
Be sure this mod is above any other sound mods in your load order.
I've tested as many sounds as I could and have found no issues. If you run across any, please let me know here
Depending on the music mod you use/don't use, you may need to adjust the music volume down in game. -Better to be too low than too high! Eg; I use EDMusic and Tsuna Arranged and I find SFX:100% and MUSIC:70% to be perfect.

dude might wanna change the name from ProtoX to ProtomanZxAdvent to avoid confusion, i still don't understand why the 7th Heaven 3.0 Catalog uses that old name of mine

The latest IRO for FFXIII UI Sounds + ProtomanZxAdvent might be a little wacky somewhere.  Can't configure and deleting in 7H doesn't delete the file on disk.

Post by: Flash0429 on 2020-03-14 04:49:54
I second what Kassius said when you try and change it it says Can not configure mod FFXIIIUI+ProtoX - Failed to read mod.xml


On a side note is there any possible way to get in contact with Seclet to possibly add in the voice sounds in battle i think that would be the perfect mix but cant do it as this Iro overwrites that one
Title: Re: [FF7 PC] FFXIII UI Sounds & FFXIIIUI+ProtomanZxAdvent
Post by: Bonez on 2020-03-14 07:42:55
Nah there's nothing wacky, guys.  I just didn't include a mod.xml file because there's just nothing to change/configure...  It's a very simple mod; when you turn it on, it's on...  Any mod that doesn't have a config menu will show "Can not configure mod..."   I assure you, the mods works just fine.  Also, this mod should be above any other sound mods in your load order.  It's supposed to overwrite all other ones.

As far as it not deleting from your disk when you uninstall from 7H... 7H should delete it from your mods folder and remove it from your mods list... But 7H can't delete any other copies you might have on your computer like in your downloads folder or something, since it wasn't downloaded from the 7H catalog. That's just not possible for 7H to do... If you mean it's not deleting from your 7H mods folder after you uninstall it, and it still shows up in your list of mods, there's nothing I could do about that. That would be a 7H issue... It's deleting out of my mods folder when I uninstall from 7H just fine.

I can add a mod.xml to any updates I might do (I'm actually working on something even bigger that will make all other sound packs like mine, Proto, Seclet etc. obsolete and I'll be releasing it in the next couple days... Maybe even tomorrow  8)) so it'll show you the the nice "Nothing to configure" dialogue when you try to configure it instead of the error that's confusing you guys, but until then it's not really necessary.

Until then, just turn it on  ;)

Awesome thanks for clarifying it was the first mod to give that error which is why i was a bit confused but good to know its all good.

Regardless thanks for all the hard work to everyone

This is great, thanks! just one question, would be possible to have a "map" for sounds you changed? I mean the corrisponding number of sound into audio.fmt.

I messed something up in the xml file... If you happened to download a copy in the past hour or so that just doesn't work when active, I've re-uploaded a working copy... If your copy already works, you're good to go.

If using R06, you just rename or delete the file.

Working on summons. They're not necessarily finished. It's more of a proof of concept in working with the overlapping sound layers.

Love the SFX, but is there an option to change or return the "battle swirl" sound effect to default? The new one is a little too high pitched towards the end.
Title: Re: [FF7 PC] Bonez' SFX Replacement Pack - 2.0 Update(4/9/2020)
Post by: Bonez on 2020-04-11 21:50:41
No, there isn't. Sorry.

I don't know what you mean by high pitched at the end... It goes down in pitch throughout the sound:
https://www.dropbox.com/s/lkqlnlr2pgzqn4i/42%20battle%20swirl.wav?dl=0

It's definitely lower in pitch than the original high pitched static sound.

I'll think about changing it in the future if more people hate it.

My mistake, I meant the more middle section, you hear that ringing? That's what I don't like.

Hi! I can't get this pack to work (I got a FF XIII UI Replacement to work). I get no errors, I just don't hear any new sound effects when in battle for anything. Everything still sounds vanilla. What should I do? I installed through 7th Heaven. I can toggle it on and off. I just don't hear the difference.

Is you "Media" mod above this mod in your load order? Make sure this mod is above all other mods that have an effect on the sound effects, specifically the "Media", "ProtomanZxAdvent's Mod Compilation" (if you use that), and "FFXIII UI Sounds". The only reason this mod wouldn't work is because of load order... If you can't figure out which mod is overwriting this one, just put this mod literally at the top of the load order. It can't hurt anything since it only changes the sound effects... If it still doesn't work after that, try to re-download it. It's possible the .iro file became corrupt in your initial download.

Is there any way to improve on the existing "UI Sounds" rather than just replacing them with something else from another game?

The original ff7 UI sounds are an option. There isn't much you can do to a midi file to "improve it"... And the FFX sounds are essentially "improved" ff7 UI sounds. They are already exactly what you're asking for, so you're covered.

I mean improve it like, orchestral tracks "improve" the original.

I'm going with the ff7 ui sounds for now so I don't get musically confused and retain the right association.

Yeah again, that's what the FFX sounds do. They're the exact same sounds, just updated and not midi.

Pretty cool announcement for Bonez SFX: Updated sound effects are cool, but when they're played back to back, being the exact same sound kind of sucks... Well, I'm currently working on setting up sound banks for certain sound effects! What this means is Instead of a singular sound effect playing for any given action, it will pull from a pool of pre-determined sounds and play one at random (this is actually completely coincidental from Carlucci's music randomizer and works a totally different way lol)... So when Cloud hits someone with 4xCut or certain Limit Breaks, each slashing sound will sound slightly different leading to more realism! It's already completely functional and works perfectly! It also opens up the possibility for situational things... like being in the sewers will result in sounds having some reverb, etc. etc.! So, cool stuff ahead!

I've started replacing remaining sounds including ambient sound effects,  88 more sounds in total and I'm not stopping until every single sound in the game is replaced. I've added a FFXII UI sound set and a FFXIII-B UI sound set (since XIII has different UI sounds for the battle menu and pause menu). I've also expanded all the UI sets to include ALL sounds that happen inside a window box rather than just cursor, back, error and ATB load (so exp gain, gil gain, menu heal, buy, save sphere, item get, char lvl up, equip, materia lvl up, and materia get are also all themed depending on which set you choose)
