can the same be done to FF8 SeeD project?

if yes, when the buttons are final please post a link to the PNG file containing it, so I can update SeeD to it (or maybe even you, but you seem focused on FF7 right now)

FF8 would need you to copy the graphics across, and alter the font table the same way as FF7.  I have no interest in doing that (and I have no interest at all in updating FF8 menu), but if others want to use the graphics, as long as they credit mugenginga, it should be cool.

EDIT: Uploaded the adjusted buttons, Dan, but I might have gone a touch too small on the triangle, so lemme know!

Like Dan said, long as I get credit I'm happy to let other projects use them if they want! :D

You had best wait for the Reunion when I will upload my texture that has tweaked his graphics for use in FF.  The ones he has released, as they are, will not look like the picture I posted.  A bit of work needs doing to make them work like that and have consistent dimensions.

no problem.
I'm in no rush to do this.

@DLPB:
I take that you're not interested on FF8 SeeD anymore?
I want to put things in a github repo so anyone can easily track progress. Is this ok with you?

I had no interest in FF8SeeD at any time...  I did consider updating the font but I have no time and I don't love it as much as FF7 to do it.  Plus it's being rereleased so who knows.  :)

Hey DLPB, sorry for changing the subject a little, but I'd like to talk about the translation again. Are you sure that "Climhazzard" is supposed to be "Climb Hazard"? Remember that FF9 has that attack too, but its animation is totally different (jump to 4:32), so "Climb Hazard" wouldn't make much sense. I'm starting to believe it's "Crime Hazard".

It could be crime hazard of course... but what relevance would that have either? (also, utterly pathetic that FF9 kept the mistake just to keep in with dopy "canon")

In the Spanish version of FFIX it is called "guillotina" (guillotine).
It might be compatible with its animation, but I don't know what made the translators go to that interpretation.

It's because it's in English originally, and I am guessing "Clim" or "climb hazard" or "crime hazard" don't work so well in Spanish.  But making up stuff that isn't even connected isn't too professional either.

There's also a Japanese page called Crime Hazard. I can't read much in there, but I definitely saw Final Fantasy IX in katakana.

Still seems less likely than climb hazard.  What do you think, Luksy?

I'm pretty sure the kana is the same in FF9. It's クライムハザード too.

It is, but that still doesn't really matter because it's the earlier games that decide the name, and even then, there doesn't have to be any real reason for a name.  Climb Hazard sounds (and in FF7 looks) a lot more likely than crime.

I guess you're right. There's a similar attack in Dissidia, which is "Slidehazzard" (スライドハザード); it belongs to Bartz. So I suppose Climb Hazard is correct (even though it sounds weird in the other game, FF9).
http://finalfantasy.wikia.com/wiki/Dissidia_Final_Fantasy/Translations

But is there any difference between "hazard" and "hazzard"?

Hazard is a word, Hazzard is a misspelling of Hazard.  That's it as far as I know.

Tricky one IMO, if you look at it from a non-English speaking point of view Crimehazard does make sense if you start with something like Biohazard, i.e. a danger to life, it logically follows that Crimehazard is therefore a danger to crime / criminals.

It also seems to fit better with most of Cloud's other limits like Braver, 凶斬り, 破晄撃, they all seem to have this feeling of (divine?) punishment. Had they been describing Cloud's attack I think something like Jumphazard might have been more likely, climb seems like an odd choice. Given Cl/rimehazard's use in FFIX too, I tend to agree that there's a strong chance it's crime.

Been quite some time since I've seen the attack animation, and ignoring other installments in the Final Fantasy series, Crime does seem... Luksy mentioned something about "Jump" and based on my experience of pop culture and loanwords it does seem likely they would have gone with the katakana for jump if that kind general meaning was intended?

Anyways, I'm not putting the words together and speaking the English very good tonight, but I think Crime might be a better fit.

They both sound like absolute nonsense to me, but Crime it is.  :-P

Now that you guys mention it, Crime does make sense. I was talking to Andrew (the guy who's helping me with the translations) yesterday, and he was the one who asked me if it was "Climb" or "Crime". I didn't EVEN know Climhazzard was incorrect. Well, this is it. He's still checking my translations, but this was the only problem we found.

At least it's not Omnislash's original Japanese name. I love ridiculous attacks like that. XD

The funny thing about that is, Omnislash has actually been adopted in some (or one) FF games in the Japanese versions... so it's gone full circle.
