Long time lurker, first time poster, so... hi, and thanks for all the great work.

I purchased the new rerelease of Final Fantasy VII PC, and have used the .ogg files linked to here to replace the god-awful crap Square-Enix included in the rerelease:
http://www.gamefront.com/files/22128993/FF7+Fixed+Music.rar
Now, I'm not sure what release of Anxious Heart those files were taken from (or if they're even taken from somewhere else), and I'm not sure if the problems are in the original files or if the person who compiled and posted them (the Readme says Bloodshot) made some errors, but I have quickly discovered a couple issues:

1) The Opening Bombing Run music (that plays immediately after the opening FMV ceases and Barret and Cloud disembark the train) doesn't loop. There are two files that are exactly the same in the tracks included in that link, titled "oa.ogg" and "ob.ogg". In the .ogg files included in the rerelase, "oa.ogg" is the music that plays during the opening FMV rather than being identical to "ob.ogg".

2) The track titled "comical.ogg" plays the Jenova theme. The "comical.ogg" included in the rerelease is definitely not the Jenova theme, so that would seem to be an error.

Just letting you know in case it has any bearing on your release of Anxious Heart compatible with the rerelease, and for the sake of others using the .oggs from that link. If it's not relevant to you, by all means ignore me. ;)

All of those things are known.  Comical is unused and so is oa (they are never used).  Thanks for the report anyway.  I will be releasing a full statement at the end when this installer is ready.  And yes, he got those ogg's from here.

I will be releasing the final updated set soon, with a few fixes.

Also to anyone else, until I have released the new installer / and set, there is no point releasing "bug reports".  I know you want to help and that's good, but wait until the next installer is out and you have read the statement I will release.  There are a number of issues fixed with the new release and many more things that I know about, seem to be bugs, but aren't. :)

Due to a number of issues, it is taking longer than expected.  But it will be done soon ;)

IIRC, isn't oa the overworld music before meteor is summoned and ob is after?

No. You may be referring to ta and tb, which are overworld starting at different points.

When I release the installer and notes, some of this will be clearer.

A03 is Here
as ever, read the readme on the installer's license page.

Please note, if using new PC game (2012), select that option in the installer.
MAKE SURE TO INSTALL TO THE PATH YOUR FF7.exe or ff7_**.exe is in.
IF IT SAYS NEW FOLDER IN THE PATH, DELETE IT. 
THE PATH MUST BE EXACT.


I will be releasing an ogg pack soon too, for those who want to just copy paste the ogg's
into the ogg_music folder.  Remember though that this project also includes options
for other music.

Code: [Select]

HISTORY

A03 16.August.2012
Added proper alternate fanfare music (fanfare)
Added alternate highwind music (mogu)
Corrected mistake with cintro music not looping.
Updated installer to support new ff7 (2012) game.

OTHER

The OST did not include a number of musics.  These are:

Alternate fanfare (fanfare)

The Planet's Chosen One, looping version (cintro)

Highwind Takes to the Skies Alternate (mogu)

I used PSF for the Alternate fanfare and mogu, but used a mix of the OST
and PSF for cintro.

The following music is not used, even though the files are
present in the original game:

Unknown Name (Comical): This was once going to be a part of
Honeybee Manor, in a comedy scene with Palmer.  The final
game does not have this scene and the music does not exist in
the PSX version. (Thanks Shademp for this information).

Opening - Bombing  Mission (oa) is the opening music, but with
PC this music is part of the FMV instead.  The music file is not
used.

A One Winged Angel (lb2_awe): Final boss music.
Does not seem to be used or present in the new PC game -
lb2 is used instead, same with the old PC game.

Crisis of the Planet (fin): Again, this music is part of the FMV and
the file is unused.

NAMES

I have added these because I feel it necessary to correct
all errors with the original VII... and there are many.  I hope
people will start using the proper names for the music.

These are the re-translated music names by Luksy:

A Dream of Space
Aerith's Theme
Anxious Heart
Barret's Theme
Beginning of the Nightmare
Birth of a God
Blood Trail
Bombing Mission
Buried in Snow
Cait Sith's Theme
Canyon of the Falling Stars
Cid's Theme
Cinco de Chocobo
Coal Mining Town
Coast of the Sun
Continue
Crazy Motorcycle
Crisis of the Planet
Debut
Descendant of Ninjas
Don of the Slums
Electric de Chocobo
Fanfare
Farm Boy
Fiddle de Chocobo
Flow of Life
Flowers Blooming in the Church
Fort Condor
From the Depths of Despair
Frontier Village

Good Night, Until Tomorrow
Great Crater of the North
Hear the Voice of the Planet
Highwind of the Skies

Hurry Up!
Hurry!
If You Opened Up Your Heart
Infiltrating the Shin-Ra Building

The Countdown Begins
The Favourite Chocobo
The Great Warrior
The Mako Cannon Fires
The Oppressed
The Planet's Chosen One
The Secret Sleeping in the Deep
Those Who Fight
Those Who Keep Fighting
Tifa's Theme
Treasured Memories
Turks' Theme
Under the Rotten Pizza
Waltz de Chocobo
While Travelling
Who Are You
Who... Am I

Wutai

It was a nightmare updating this installer and making sure the files were right and I am still not sure it is 100%.  Keep me posted!


Also note, I now need MIRRORS for this and for the OGG pack for new pc (the pack will be for people who just want to do an easy swap).  If anyone can lend a hand, much appreciated.  Also need someone who understands torrents, that would be best bet for the pack.

I agree that a torrent of these files would be great and I would love to help do this. Especially the ogg pack.

Come on who is going to be the first to spot some hideous oversight on my part.

h3ndrix, or maybe Bloodshot if he wants... I will upload the pack shortly.  Well, let us make sure that this installer works fine too.  Though a mirror for that would be cool!

Installer works great, looks great but I am confused as to what ogg files it patched. The ones that come with the new release?

It batch files my own.  It has to rename them to work with New FF7, as well as move them to correct area.  Are the files working in game as they should?

Wish I could help with the mirrors.. I have a media server here with oodles of space (though probably not much upstream bandwidth) that I *want* to get a net and email server running on.. but I know diddly poo about how to work in linux.

My friend who could set it up has been procrastinating forever.  =/

Is there anything specific you need us to be looking out for in terms of the old standard version install, Or just a general "watch for anything it shouldn't be doing" sorta deal this version?

And thanks much for the update.  :)

Please note, if using new PC game (2012), select that option in the installer.
MAKE SURE TO INSTALL TO THE PATH YOUR FF7.exe or ff7_**.exe is in.
IF IT SAYS NEW FOLDER IN THE PATH, DELETE IT.
THE PATH MUST BE EXACT.

Installed it with the new PC release (though honestly I just installed it into a new folder and copy/pasted into the ogg_music folder so I could preview the alternate tracks from the ones you included and weed out the ones I'm not fond of) and it's working fine so far. Only one very minor, 100% trivial issue: it installed an empty folder titled "Ficedula" for some odd reason.

I'll let you know if any issues pop up as I play, but so far so good. Thanks again for all the hard work, much appreciated!

yeah ficedula is a folder that is used for old ff7, but it doesnt get deleted for some reason, even though all the files inside it do.  I think it is because it is in use when my bat file tries to remove it.  I knew this problem existed, but thought fuck it.  It is extremely minor.

The following is the ogg's of the OST only (no fan made stuff or anything else) in a folder ready for manual placement into ogg_music folder in new ff7 pc.

I would be grateful if someone would torrent the zip file.  No altering the zip file.  Just torrent it :)
When it is torrented let me know so I can remove this.


ogg pack here:
Removed for now.


Read the readme.

Hey DLPB thanks for the release, I think most are fixed from what I've checked. I just checked ob.oog though and it has no LOOP in it.

I have no idea how that has happened.  It WAS there.

seems ob has somehow had its loopstart removed.  I am getting mighty pissed off now at things like this happening.

I will sort it. 

Anxious Heart is down until it is fixed.  ob is the only one with a problem.  A problem I have no explanation for other than something out there likes to get a laugh at fucking with my mind.

I am used to pressure, but I am sick of taking every step possible... and then ONE error at the end that cannot be undone without a reupload. That's what is annoying :)  And this file was working fine yesterday.  Today, the loopstart tag has mysteriously vanished!  Hasn't vanished from any other though.  So why this one?  Was it special in some way, or is this just to piss me off?

It is back now though.  Upload on its way.
