General discussion / [FF8PC-00] Anything out there?
« on: 2019-04-26 18:40:03 »
Having just finished a play-through of FF7 with some of the glorious field and battle texture mods, I busted out my FF8 disks to do the same for the first time in ~15 years, annnnnddd... ewwww.  Sure, the characters were a step up from the chibis of FF7, but the backgrounds (especially battle scenes), text, menus, and the rest were incredibly jarring.  So I figured I'd overlay some graphics mods for this as well, but it seems as if everything is dependent on the Steam version.  Is there something blocking the original CD release from the TLC that FF7 received?

7thHeaven / Not all mods activating
« on: 2018-12-23 20:43:04 »
Not too sure what I might be doing wrong on this...
OS - Win7 x64 inside VirtualBox
FF7 - Original PC CDROM release
7th Heaven - v1.54

Followed http://forums.qhimm.com/index.php?topic=15520.0... installed using original installer (no Tom's involved) to C:\Games\Final Fantasy VII\, ran the GC without issue, 7H installed just fine.  Got my catalog downloaded/installed and *mostly* activated.  I say mostly because even though I've gone over the load order several times, not everything is actually running.  All of the character (PC and NPC) field and battle models are working, the sound effect changes are working, and the object (potions, materia, etc) replacements are working.  When it was active (I'm out of Midgar, so I've turned these off), the Jessie mod also worked, though the Team Avalanche fields and yarLrson textures did not.  The spellcasting/limit break effects have never worked, and the movie mod does not seem to be replacing anything, either (though I've only triggered two of them so far).  Finally, all the battle/conversation/whatever boxes are still FF7 defaults, not the HD and transparent style I see in so many screen shots.  I've attached my OpenGL config and the APP log from a quick run I just did (inside spoiler tags since I don't see an 'attach' button), which runs between the second-half of Cloud's flashback in Kalm, to exiting the city.
Config
Spoiler: show
# ff7_opengl-0.8b config file



## USER OPTIONS ##
## If you just want to play the game, these are the only options you'll want to change.

# set the window size (or fullscreen resolution) of FF7
# 0 means use original resolution in window mode, your current desktop resolution will be used in fullscreen mode
# preserve_aspect adds black borders as needed to preserve a 4:3 aspect ratio
window_size_x = 1024
window_size_y = 768
preserve_aspect = on
fullscreen = off

# mod directory
# subdirectroy of mods/ where textures will be loaded from
mod_path = none

# check your Nvidia/ATI/Intel control panel settings if this option doesn't seem to work
enable_vsync = off

# allow FF7 to use linear filtering for its textures
# some things look slightly better with this option on, but alot of textures just lose their detail
# only affects low-res textures, high-res replacements will still be filtered where appropriate
linear_filter = on

# plugin used to play music, VGMstream requires a set of looping .ogg files in the music/vgmstream folder.
# If no music plugin is loaded the game will play MIDI as usual but FF7Music will NOT work.
music_plugin = plugins/vgmstream_music.fgp



## ENHANCEMENTS ##
## All the little extras that weren't part of the original game, default options include only trivial bug fixes.

# make all dialog boxes transparent, same effect as the transparent dialog boxes YAMP patch
transparent_dialogs = off

# include armor in magic defense calculation
mdef_fix = yes

# post-processing shader, used to apply fullscreen effects
# post_source = shaders/bloom2.post
post_source = shaders/SmartBloomHDR.post
enable_postprocessing = no



## ADVANCED OPTIONS ##
## Don't fiddle with these unless you know what you're doing.

# enable alpha blending for textures without an existing blending effect
fancy_transparency = on

# display frames per second counter in upper right corner
show_fps = no

# display some real-time debug information
show_stats = no

# store external textures in a compressed cache for increased performance
# compression is not lossless, some artifacts may appear when this option is in use
# texture cache does NOT update automatically if the source image changes, however, deleting anything from the cache
# will cause that file to be recreated from the source
compress_textures = no

# max size of the texture cache to hold in RAM, in megabytes
# don't set it any higher than 1GB unless you want your game to crash
texture_cache_size = 768

# use pixel buffer objects to speed up texture loading
# might crash horribly on ATI cards but should work for NVIDIA users
use_pbo = no

# use mipmaps (anisotropic filtering) for high-res textures
use_mipmaps = yes

# replace FF7's default framelimiter timer source
use_new_timer = yes

# plugin used to play movies, FFMpeg is the only choice for now
movie_plugin = plugins/ffmpeg_movies.fgp



## MODDER OPTIONS ##
## These options are mostly useful to modders and should not be enabled during normal play.

# read files directly instead of using LGP archives
# for example; if FF7 is looking for aaab.rsd in char.lgp, this option will make it open direct/char/aaab.rsd first,
# if this file doesn't exist it will look for the original in the LGP archive
direct_mode = on

# show every failed attempt at loading a .png texture
show_missing_textures = no
load_library = Multi.dll
