Well yeah, it would be pointless otherwise :p
What I meant was, she tries to stop things from happening but she has no effect on the events.
Though I don't really know how it would work, she'd be Cloud on the world map, and I think it would be odd for her to be on the Highwind since she's following the others from behind...so maybe it's better that it stays an idea.
I see where things become tricky... In your tifa example: would she still be able to have her dog codes and notice the dog if she wasn't the leader, but was following you in your party instead?
Would it also be more complicated for scenes that are supposed to involve specific characters for them to still have the same dialogue but not be the party leader? im not really sure there is a way to get around that lol.
I dont think i necessarily would want to change the game as far as changing who gets to save cloud in the lifestream. I would just want to be able to play as any character like when i'm in the traveling, or playing at the gold saucer, or when in costa del sol, or even going to the sleeping forest or whatever that place is called.
Ok so I just tested this out. Copied Tifa's code, and pasted in an Aeris entity. Now both Aeris and Tifa work in that scene as leaders, but not as members. I think it'll just be a case of changing which script to load to fix it
Yeah, it works. So you can have FF7 with any leader you want.
Oops, messed with encounters and activated Test 0:
