"2. Shera should stand up to her abuser

- Its more realistic that she doesn't because most women don't. It sheds light on real life and doesn't ignore it."

Not to mention Cid sacrificed his life dream to rescue her life- so she lives thanks to Cid but he is abusing her with harsh words due to his dream being ruined in the process. He could have let her die but chose to save her over fulfilling his life dream. So Cid is a hero- and Shera doesn't stand up to him because she knows he is a good person, and is just angry about his dream of going to space being destroyed.

She knows that she caused this.. And that she kind of deserves it.

lol nice concept :P

Thanks mate, this project isn't dead but the old computer i used when modding this game is broken at the moment. While i could mod on the new one it's not as easy to do due to using a widescreen. I might continue the project on it though and change the screen to a smaller old-school one. I find them easier to read the text on, and as such i can sit for longer periods of time working on them.

Btw- in the new Final Fantasy VII Remake Trailer they've made Scaret justice. She's absolutely gorgeous!

I do hope that they'll still keep Rufus Shinra's cool look from the original. I wasn't a fan of his Advent Children look due to his clothes looking less cool. Something about his look in the boss-battle with double pants etc that made him look bad-ass.

I'm also still worried that Dyne will be cut but hopefully not.

New trailer, big spoiler for who is picky (promise Cloud and Tifa, Jenova, Red XIII, fights, crossdressing)

They basically show us everything.

An amazing trailer that has it all it seems.

But i think i saw one censorship area: Don Corneo!

In what sense?

Yes, I did get the impression that the team of Cloud, Aerith and Tifa will challenge the Don already at the "chosing the bride" stage. He won't be going with one of them into his bedroom for some "fun"- that's my bet. At least you won't be allowed to see any sexist moves of the Don against Tifa inside that room.

Aerith looked fabulous and i'd surely enjoy using her the entire game in that hot style.

Scarlet of the Shinra looked better than i had thought she would- i thought that Square-Enix would make her less beautiful in this day and age. Well, i was wrong- she has the same hairstyle and is gorgeous. Now, i got the impression she has pants instead of a dress and pants but that was hard to see really.

She seems to be somewhat of a dominatrix towards her troops- while she didn't do that in the original she did indeed kill a few of them for aiming badly.

I hope her signature laugh and pose is still kept. I'm not happy about Tifa's leggins but otherwise Tifa looked great as well. Scarlet used black leggins in the original though so Tifa stole that.

Overall an impressive trailer and all the scenes were amazing. It's also cool that they've made the mouths follow the English words spoken in the trailer/game. That means they'll lipsync it in Japanese for Japan, and in English for everyone else- pretty good effort by the company.

Seeing as how modern Blizzard released a buggy and unstable Warcraft 3 Remake- i can at least praise Square-Enix for putting in the extra hours to make the FF7 Remake something awesome! Just a shame about the Tifa censorship.

As for extra stories they are kind of a gamble- they could be good, or they could also be bad.. It's interesting that Square-Enix is willing to take risks where Blizzard plays it safe.

Official box art:

The ugly logo basically ruins it completely.

What ruins it is Clouds hair. It were much more bad-ass looking and pointy in the old cover/game. I'd think they should have made it more pointy.

So they've changed the sequence before fighting Air Buster... instead of getting President Shinra in the helicopter, you get a couple of drones and a giant hologram of the President and Heidegger...

Looks like the summons are playable and/or at least the summoner stays in the battle (something like FF12)

There are rumors about Don Corneo being voiced by Mark Hamill...

Also every character has his/her own frog model when in Frog status (i think Cloud's has a sword lol)

I wonder who's that new biker?


I loved what they did with the summons, as that's one of the things i always wished for as a kid/teenager - to be able to control the summons!

However, i do not like what they did to President Shinra in that scene before fighting Air Buster - it can't be too hard to just have him do what he did in the original. No need for pointless changes like that. The helicopter-escape made him more like his son Rufus who also escaped by a helicopter.

I've also gotten the impression that aali was compensated for it in some way

Very odd..

I agree that all the mods should have been integrated in the official remaster, nobody (or at lest not i) wanted the chibi models remastered. I'd be happy with the entire game using NinoStyles models.

7
I wasn't aware of a soft-lock on that fight, were there any model mods on?

Hey Sega Chief, i read about your mod and wanted to play it using NinoStyles models. Unfortunately most NPC are chibi-models.. Is it possible to use the PRB-models with your mod instead?

Edit: Your special edition using default enemies and combat systems worked with PRB-models - very nice. I am going to try it out! It still has those encounters in cities with party members right?

8
He asked for it to be removed as he wanted to put a bit more work into it before re-releasing.

Ah, that was unnecessary lol - now he might never release it again  :P.

9
Fixed all the issues, thanks for your help LordUrQuan. Now i can enjoy the mod with the new models by Ninostyle - the absolute best in my opinion! I wish the entire game had his style.

10
That's ok, just choose "Overwrite" at the beginning.  From the screen shots you edited in, though, OpenGL is definitely working (otherwise MO, dialog transparency, and the rest wouldn't be), so it's more likely a problem with your load order, or because you mention a modified char.lgp file in your original post, stray files laying around that don't belong and are getting in the way.  Are you playing from CD'98 or Steam?  If the latter, you can do a "verify/repair" to make sure everything's the way it should be, re-run the converter, and end up with a clean "vanilla" install that should be ready for modding again.  If the former, you'll need to do an uninstall/reinstall to get back to basics.  Either way, once that's done, post up your mod config/load order, and we'll see if maybe something's in the wrong place.

Graphics fixed, but now the text is messed up and the res is no longer widescreen - no matter if i return to the FF7.exe or use the other one. And even when disabling the Menu Overhaul the graphics remained great while the res is not widescreen, and the text is messed up. I did check all the active mods but there are none active messing with the text. Maybe the converter enhanced the graphics, but messed up the text? And Fullscreen doesn't seem to work after using it. At least not full screen without the black borders.







Edit: Fullscreen were fixed by placing the mod in "stretched".

However, the text is all messed up?

11
It should have been dropped by the conversion program.
You did run the converter, right? 

Fixed :), thanks man - it were the converter. I had tried to install it but the program said it were already in place so i cancelled.

Now, what i did was that i uninstalled the converter and re-installed it - it works :).

12
It should have been dropped by the conversion program.
You did run the converter, right? 

Yes, but it said it had already been installed before.

13
That's the Menu Overhaul mod from Reunion R03c.  You can still get it by activating the "Reunion - Beacause and MO" mod and turning on the menu overhaul option, and changing your .exe from "ff7.exe" to "ff7_bc.exe" in the 7H configuration settings.  However, DLPB no longer supports that overhaul, and has removed it in later updates to Reunion.

I tried activating that mod and changing the line in the General Settings but the 7th Heaven program says there is no .exe with that name. So i'd need that exe from somewhere?

Also, it's not just the menu - i mean the graphics have low resolution. Everything looks like the old resolution of FF7 - it's like OpenGL isn't doing what it should be doing.

The pics i'm about to show might look fine because they are smaller - but when using fullscreen it's very blurry compared to how it is for the Youtuber. I also had way better resolution when playing Bootleg before. The pictures look better than in-game view oddly enough.
















14
I'd like the resolution to be like in this video:

But it looks like the old game.

Hello, i've finally gotten Tifas 7th Heaven to work  properly, but the resolution in the game is not good - it's blurry! I've followed the guide by Eq2Alyza and i've tried changing the openGL settings in the catalog but the resolution still refuses to become better. I do also get an error-message with the postprocessing and sound if trying to use the modified alternatives.

Anyone knows how to increase the resolution? I believe i had a much higher resolution in the past, but it would seem now all start-ups of FF7 ends in this blurry resolution.

Bootleg had a much higher res, but now even Bootleg has a lower  res.. And for some reason 7th Heaven went from working to not working.

Edit: 7th Heaven works again, it stoped working when i used my modified char.lgp-file.

However, the resolution is really low - it used to be much better in the past?

16
Hello, looking at the Tifa's Seventh Heaven page there was a Sephiroth Story mod in the past, but it isn't in the catalog now - i need this file to be able to test that mod. I already have the .exe-files but not the IRO. Thanks

PS: Genesis063 is the creator.

I mean I doubt you have any studies or large sampled randomized polls to reference here which is obviously fair enough and would be an unreasonable/silly expectation, but any explanations to actually back up this claim you present in such a strong/factual way other than feelings based/anecdotal ones stemming from exposure to what is a, in terms of distribution of opinion regarding this topic, potentially very biased echochamber (used in a relative and non derogative, but merely descriptive way here, replace with environment if it helps) that is the qhimm community (which apart from a few others is the central hub for modding the original game) or your close friends.

Look man, the original players of Final Fantasy VII dreamt for years about the original with better graphics than the original blokes. That is also why in the year 2006 people started to mod the game and add the battle-models as field-models - which was revolutionary! I do remember how excited i were back then to play FF7 PC with the battle-models in the field. It felt like an entirely new FF7 - the way we always imagined it.

It started with just the main characters and the main enemies - such as the Turks, Rufus, Sephiroth, Palmer and Hojo - and expanded onto the rest of the characters and even the NPC:s. What we all wanted, both modders and players - was to play the game again with good models in the field instead of those old original models. The battle-models were not used in the field in the original PSX-version because of the limits of the PSX - when we wanted a PS2 port the whole idea was the same game with you know PS2 models.

Same is true for the PS3 port and later PS4 - of course we are happy with whatever we get, but i am 100% certain that most players and fans of the original only wanted to play the same game again with better graphics/models - that is why the modding community here was super-big back in 06-07. I had a Youtube channel back then (it got removed because of some videos breaking copyright) where i did play the entire FF7 PC game with the Rejuvenation project models - i did have videos with over 200k viewers etc. All the videos back then were limited to 11 mins. So i had about 210 episodes with FF7 and the modified models. Nowadays the modded FF7 is old news, but back then it was basically the remake we'd wanted - the only thing better would be an official remake with even better graphics than what us fans could accomplish.

Well, FF7R is that project, but not everyone likes the changes or the new style of the characters - many would have kept to the original.

and that by changing it to a modern turd, they'll also reach out to a wider fanbase.  And they're right.

Actually they are wrong, the original reached as wide as they could possibly hope for - and catering to a few feminists will result in the opposite.

I don't agree. It's your opinion to think so, but hear me out on this. Based upon what you're saying, Advent Children would have also catered to feminists, but almost 15 years ago before the identity politics of today's Western society came into fruition?

Square Enix is a Japanese company first and foremost, and Final Fantasy is their Japanese franchise. I've lived in Japan for long enough now to know that society here functions much differently than the Western world. All the identity representation [nonsense] currently thrown into Western media and entertainment...it's not here. Most Japanese people are ignorant to its existence, and those who may get a whiff of it from the internet, don't care enough to ever talk about it. Another fact is that the majority of the player base is male, and the Japanese gaming industry heavily favors male loving aesthetics. They don't tone down characters because feminist activists [whom don't exist in Japan] demanded it do so. Trust me on this one...it's not a feminist thing.

I personally don't mind the new look they've given, but still enjoy the original the best. The changes themselves at least match pretty well. Barret with sunglasses though? That one will take awhile to grow on me.

This is my take as well. And we know it's a good system seeing how the Hardcore mod and New Threat have shown us what could have been developed instead.

Hey Eq2Alyza, you brought up Advent Children, but i had forgotten that Advent Children did portray Tifa right in the "earlier history" scene - and FF Dissidia Duodecim 12 also had a Tifa with the original style. If Advent Children and Dissidia duodecim 12 could keep the style, why not the remake? The breast-size were lowered in those as well - and that is fine! (It were outrageous in the original FMV's).. But, giving her stockings and changing her skirt, the tightness of her top etc - that is simply heresy.

Advent Children Tifa with the original clothing looks way better than the new.



Tifa in Final Fantasy VII Dissidia was perfect, it had better clothing than the new:



Tifa in the new Dissidia is perfect, but the Remake has a better face to be honest - replace the body with this though:

More terrible doesn't make Lucas' shambles good.  Not to mention Crystal Skull..... At least with Disney, you knew it was gonna be crap.  Their eyes were set on the money and merchandise they could sell from day 1.

I think Star Wars: Episode III: Revenge of the Sith, is the third best movie, the second best is Return of the Jedi (used to be number one when i were a kid) and the best one is Empire Strikes back.

So in my opinion A New Hope is worse than Revenge of the Sith, because it had sucky lightsaber battles - but it still is the most successful movie in the franchise because it were the first released.

Disney Star wars is just trash.. Destroyed by forced politics.

Wrong. The LARGE majority of people are excited for the remake. The people crying their eyes out about it are definitely a small minority.
If people could choose between FF7 original with PS4 graphics, and the FF7 Remake - they'd prefer the original with PS4 graphics.

"And that's precisely why the majority who loved the original game wanted it to be a proper remaster and not this awful modern hybrid tripe."

Yes, not a remaster with the old models.. A remaster with the PS4 graphics.

"Speaking of costume design, Nomura-san explained that the team aimed for it to be quite realistic visually, taking real designs of clothes and accessories as reference. For instance, Tifa’s suspenders are inspired by real ones for military use, while her gloves reference those used for riding bikes and fighting. The body silhouette didn’t change from the original version, but the team has tried to improve such details."

Why did they do this? We do not want it to be realistic, we would want it to be like the original? It's named Final Fantasy VII - not Final Realistic VII.. In other words it's supposed to be a fantasy, and fantasy isn't realistic.. The original style of characters such as Jessie and Tifa were way superior. And i would choose that over realistic anyday.. If i'd wanted realistic i could look at a woman outside my window.

"Developers wanted Tifa to have visible abs, so they gave her the body style of an athlete. There were instructions from the internal ethics department, and it was decided to constrict her chest [Editor’s Note: the context and wording indicate clearly that this refers to the tightness and design of Tifa’s clothing, not to her chest size] so that it wouldn’t look unnatural even during fierce action. Therefore, the team created a design for her upper torso, with black underwear and a body-fitting tank top replacing the original simple one. It’s a sporty design inspired by fitness."

Unnatural is all fine in a fantasy.. Guess Final Fantasy ain't a fantasy anymore. The tightness and original clothing is what i enjoyed the most about Tifa.

The whole "feminists ruined Tifa" thing is silly. They've ruined plenty but this isn't one of them.

Has everyone forgotten Final Fantasy 15's Cindy?

And Tifa looks awesome. They don't have to design the character to look like a hooker in order for her to look badass.

I haven't played a FF game since FFXIII and i felt it were underwhelming and i really disliked the linear story. I only really enjoyed 7, 8 and 9 - but 10 is still charming even though i never finished it.

FFXII kept me obsessed the first time i played it for many hours, but after i stoped playing i never got back in. So i thought it were impressive and great but i disliked it's battle-system as i died all the time in a catacomb or whatever. Had to use cheats to get past a part in it. I never had to cheat in the old games. - The problem was that the game had real-time battles. Every enemy could attack and you could never be safe - all your characters got attacked at once.

The new Remake has a pausing-ability and also keeps some of the traditional aspects. That will make it harder for the AI to kill everyone in the party before the player can react.

As for looking like a hooker, i think the Stockings are more  like my picture of one - however, after looking again at Tifa i think she is kind of hot still. Just not in the way i'd expected. But i didn't expect changes to her look, the more i look at her the more used i get to her - it's not bad, just not as good as in the past - i could probably enjoy the game with the new look.

I fully agree with tifas model being kinda unnecessarily tamed down wtih the long stocking socks; other than that though damn this looks absolutely fantastic im really hyped now combat looks extremely fun and the whole thing is visually absolutely stunning.

Cant wait to get DLPBs explanation on why this combat is all complete crap and am interested in how precisely the original scorpion battle (or rest of combat) is so much more tactical, braincell demanding than this lol (while restressing that the numbers are too flashy) ^^

I did expect the new battle-system to be trash - like in Devil May Cry, a game i hated because of the mechanics.

I have to agree with you that i were pleasantly surprised by it. The only thing the game needs is a "Classic look"-DLC.
