Authors

Packed by myst6re (https://www.ff8.fr).
FFNx uses the OpenPSF project (https://github.com/myst6re/openpsf) to play PSF files.
Thanks to Neil Corlett (https://web.archive.org/web/20131214013404/http://www.neillcorlett.com/) for in_psf.dll and PSF files.
Thanks to Christopher Snowhill (https://kode54.net/) for its implementation of foo_psf.
comical, cintro, mogu, tb and wind PSF files were generated by myst6re using Makou Reactor 1.8 (http://forums.qhimm.com/index.php?topic=9658.0).

Notable improvements (aka changes I made to FFNx)


I added few missing files to the PSF collection made by Neil Corlett:

I also reply here, yes you can. I don't own the files, and in the next version of Makou Reactor I offer a way to create them (except the psflib) from the game data.

Is there any difference between this pack and the old pack from Neill Corlett?
Just saw that you added a couple of files to his pack.

You can convert it to ogg, or any other format you want, with foobar2000. Just install the PSF component: https://foobar2000.org/components/view/foo_psf

^ This, and that part is easy to do. After you only need to write loop times manually.

And my official answer is I won't convert this to OGG or FLAC, because I won't and I can't upload it.

  • tb: Main theme alternative (dunno where it is used, I found it in the map of Jenova in the Nibelheim reactor ;D)


Haven't touched the game for years, but looks like 'tb' was playing at certain scene.(I think it's... 'what really happened in the Nibelheim reactor' when Cloud and Tifa in the lifestream)

Thank you myst, absolutely loving this release. Game finally playable again on PC, I was getting tired of hearing the first 20 seconds of the main theme over and over and over...

EDIT: AHA! Figured it out; my problems are tied to a bug in FFNx related to starting/stopping music.

So all good now?

Post by: Cupcake on 2020-06-20 18:34:38
Yep, all is well; just might wanna make a mention about that in the first post; in some situations (not sure of the specifics, I'll tinker with it later) the psfs won't play right away, so you'll have to get into a battle before they start.

If you have more informations about this, and how to reproduce, let me know.

New version to prepare (again) the next version of FFNx. With FFNx 1.8.0 and later, latencies are gone.

FFNx 1.8.0 is out, you'll need to update FFNx FF7Music to the last version (1.3).
