You can't hover over anything in FF7.  There is no mouse.

Nothing has changed in R05c in regards to growth display - Please check original unmodded game before posting bug reports.

It can be used standalone - the downside is 7h isn't supported.  So it will be a case of disabling Reunion (easy option in ini) when you're using it.  Otherwise, you'll need to port mods across to Reunion.  Should be fairly easy.

60fps mod is broken and will be until R06.

R06 isn't going to work with Steam achievements either.  It's their own fault for how they've coded it.

That's done by Makou Reactor tool.  You set it in field script.  Look at places this happens by using Makou Reactor and loading flevel.lgp

touphScript can also do it automatically by using #o

And the overwhelming majority had there mind blown, if there was something game breaking or disagreeable someone would of said something by now,

Like they all did about FF10-2, FF12, 13, 13-2, 15....  It doesn't work that way.  First, your figures are wrong. Second, the people invited to these demos are either on the payroll, are compelled to write glorious reviews, or are scared of backlash.  We've seen the majority of big gaming sites giving 10/10 to any old dreck with graphics countless times.  And we've already seen enough lies about this game to go round the equator twice.

And I've seen with my own eyes what they've done so far.


This text may be draft with notes.  There may be bugs. The boxes may not be sized properly.

And I'm providing as-is.  So... I won't help get it loaded for you.  Hopefully it will work until R06 comes out.

I'll post the fixed field tonight.  The text may be a mismatch but it will get you past that area.

FMV skipping won't help you.  The bug is caused by poor script which checks for frame count to progress the scenes / set sound effects in a very stupid way.

What the hell is this guy talking about?? Real-time action is more true to the spirit of FF?? What drugs is this guy on? Didn't know they allowed you to be this ยค%&#d up at E3.

lol sorry for the insult, but most of his comments are total BS. Did SE pay him?

Haven't watched the 2nd one, dunno if it's worth...

probably in the payroll / expected to say great things through fear of backlash.  A coward.

Fanboying instead of doing his job isn't a good thing.  It's just annoying. And it leads to more strawberries games as developers aren't held to account.

We have no info if the footage is final. Let's hope we can mod the game to what we like much easier.

It's almost 100% likely to be.  You don't release previews as a teaser if they're not reflective of the final version. It also takes man hours to change backgrounds.  They aren't going to do all that and then change it again.

Yeah, Kitase (or his translator) literally says: 'The first game in this project expands on the city of Midgar and is such an elaborate retelling that it has become a solid stand-alone game in its own right.' (from 17:30 in this video:

Can any Japanese speaker verify this?  Seems to be the case.

A lot of people reading between the lines.

You sound just like DLPB.  A total cynic.  You two need to get a room and let the rest of us enjoy it for what it is.

Most of what's on these days is a rip of something that came earlier... sometimes even going all the way back to the 60s (Astro Boy and Speed Racer being the two most folks have heard of), but especially the 70s and early 80s.

Oh, I'm aware of rip offs, especially with music.  But that opening part has been literally copied 1:1 from earlier source.  Surely they must have owned rights or paid someone off?

Let's run through the logic of what one or two people here are saying

That it's not logical to make the assumption that most fans wanted the original game remaking close to the original game.

Now let's consider:

1. The reason fans became fans in the first place.
2. The reason the remake was widely anticipated and demanded for years

Is it logical to say that most fans, actually, wanted a complete re-imagining of the game - a totally different translation and design - voice acting - added (and some downright silly) story elements - shoe horning of other material  when the sole reason for the remake was because the original game became successful? On its own merits.  Had it been completely different, with piss poor laughable voice acting, a brainless battle system, and a mess of a story, would any of us be here?

No - most of us wouldn't.  I certainly wouldn't.

And you'll save yourself time by admitting the awful truth:

This is being done for maximum profits and for MONEY.  It's got nothing to do with them catering to fans.  They figure most fans will buy it anyway (sadly, they're right) and that by changing it to a modern turd, they'll also reach out to a wider fanbase.  And they're right.

You really have to get away from this idea that fans matter to this lot.  That ship's sailed. That train's derailed.


And I'm not making an assumption the dialogue is going to be inferior because I've heard some of it.  It's awful.

The character model is shockingly bad. Doesn't even look like Squall. The first PC mod version is very good. The bottom one is atrocious.

The backgrounds... again it's a simple upscale.  There's nothing really different here.  More of the same. Blurriness instead of detail (with pixellation) - which I find a crap tradeoff.


I never realized it was all copied 1:1 like that.

Yay.  The first first reactor dialogue is all done and all boxes positioned.  It's finalizin' tiiime!

We shouldn't compare this to the original game when its main selling point is it's a remake of the original game?

At the very least, it shouldn't be inferior.  So if it turns out to be, how can anyone not be cheesed off?

I doubt girls give a toss to be honest.  Most dress more provocatively nowadays anyway - and a ton do cosplay of the original Tifa.  There's nothing unethical about her original design. They're doing this because of political pressure more than anything and because the game would likely get censored now if they didn't.  Because we've all gone crazy and getting crazier day by day.

The original Tifa design was deliberately opposite Aerith's traditional design. It was to provide a contrast between the two girls in the love triangle with Cloud.

I think it's a sad state of affairs that we're becoming less free and less artistic as time goes on. 

You see what you've done, Kilo ;)

"One of their guys" could work. I'm def not using One of their boys.

There's still nothing wrong with the current.  It's a normal sentence.

I very much doubt it.

BoxFF7 3.0 is released.  See main link on first post along with change log.

Can't do that.  It's cheating too far and then the later entry mentioning he quit Shin-Ra is redundant. The idea is you learn what Soldier are later in the game.  At this point, the mention of Shin-Ra and Soldier is to tease you into what their connection is. The lines above work well enough.  Yours would be better if I could cheat  ;)

If people could choose between FF7 original with PS4 graphics, and the FF7 Remake - they'd prefer the original with PS4 graphics.

Ignore Ric, mr nygren.  He's not got any logic or understanding as to what made the original game good and even defended the latest season of GoT.  He also likes trolling. 

You're right that most fans wanted this remake to be an update of the original.  They did not want it to be a completely re-imagined and dumbass dumbed down piece of modern garbage, which is what it's become.  A few years back when this was first announced, I was interviewed by a forum for the retranslation and they asked me my thoughts on the remake.  I told them why I didn't like even the announcement that it was going ahead - I then listed the reasons Senix would cock up

And everything I said has come to pass.  EVERYTHING.  Oh, apart from confirmed acts/chapters/DLC/multiple games.  But that will come. Hell, I even predicted completely new additions that undermine the story.  I was thinking along the lines of the "Midi-chlorians"  from Lucas.  But they've gone one better and summoned Necron from FF9.

Some people are living in a dream world.
