No.  Those have bandwidth limits and this is too large for most of them anyway.  It has to be torrent, unless you want to upload it places, but it won't last.

This looks good, looking forward to checking it out after the video driver gets sorted out. That's the only thing that sucked otherwise when I was testing the new driver and reunion, the original music is just god awful.

I was able to download it in about a half hour so not too bad, seeding as well so it'll get better.

Now supports new Aali Driver and 2012 versions.


Please note that my upload speed SUCKS.  So until we get more seeders, you will probably have a long wait.

Sorry if this sounds too noob, but after I installed the music seems same... I tried to manually go to the music_ogg folder and find that the music played and the one in game are not same.. Is there any settings I need to tweak when installing or after installation? I am playing the 2012 PC version, and I have set the installer of Anxious Heart to install 2012 version.. Any settings else I need to tweak? Thanks!

Not sure how 2012 version operates, but once the files are there it should be good to go....  Were the oggs that came with the game originally in that same place?  And did you get music before AH.

Hello, hello. I have installed this but when opening it ... I get this error:

Error loading music plugin.

It may be helpful to note that I have the Reunion patch installed. If I remember correctly, I did not get this error when I had the previous version (332MB was torrent size) installed.

Any ideas?

EDIT: Oh gosh why did that quote the post above me I'm so sorry! I took care of it!  Extra apologies to you superneko!

I'm not an expert at music.  I don't generally hear major differences.  Even with this I've only heard a few (although fixing that annoying midi problem in later versions as window is honestly worth the price of admission with this thing).  But I have to say, Aerith's theme sounds SOOO much better with this.  I personally can't wait until the final battle, because One-Winged Angel was completely fail with the midi tracks.

When played on a surround sound system or good pair of stereo headphones this really makes a difference. The original music option really sounds great.

Hey hey, first post in an awesome forum!

I have the 2012 re-release downloaded from square. Running it on win 8.1 laptop. Game works fine but not AH. When I check the "music_ogg" folder it still has all the original "ogg" files. Here's the rub, all the files I chose from AH is in there as well, except they are "logg" files.

When I play the game it uses the "original" sound files and not the AH ones. Does anybody else have this problem?

Cheers

Assuming you used the installer on this thread, you probably didn't read the readme that states you need to run with antivirus off, and run installer as admin.

Ah, did not notice that. Will try again tomorrow.

Thx for the pro-tip :)

Edit.  Didn't get it to work, tried antivirus off and run as administrator. I will try again with a clean reinstall of the entire game later during the week and keep you guys posted (dunno if anyone else has this problem).

The batch file should rename all files.  I dunno how that could fail.  Any ideas anyone?

I solved this problem by disabling my antivirus( kaspersky )

Obviously the guy above has still got something interfering with the installation.

thanx for this awsome music project, i must ask something if someone knows or sorry if i missed it somewhere, when i am installing AH with bootleg it offers AH original, dlpb, fan and professional. can someome explain to me what is the difference between all of them, oh and one other thing, when i installed everything with bootleg, i have the 1998 version of the game, there is no music, everything else works perfectly but no music except the intro fmv, the sound effects are there, just no music at all, i checked the config, i installed ah at the end of everything. ticked the 1998 version run as administrator disabled the antivirus.

I don't get how A04 Release is supposed to work. I have bootleg 040 installed so is A04 necessary to install for new features? If I try install it over my bootleg game with ff7music previously installed, I get "could not load music plugin" error because the vgstream or music_ogg .cfg is nonexistent in the plugin folder. If i change the plugin in bootloader to ff7music.cfg I get no music at all.

What do you mean by...

You say in your first post it also installs ff7music but now it doesn't support it? Does this release work independently and does NOT use the ff7music.exe but instead loads the files directly?

Basically, how the hell do you get this working with Tifa's Bootleg? Do i need to update the Aali driver etc? Everything seems so vague FFS

Works with Aali's latest driver.  Does not install ff7music.  I have so much to do that I missed updating the first post properly.


It isn't vague.

RUN THE INSTALLER.  Download it from the first post, and then run it.  It's that simple.  If something doesn't work after that, it's because Aali's driver is not installed properly, you installed to wrong place (read the readme), or you didn't run the installer as admin with your antivirus OFF.

This installer should be run separate to anything else.  It doesn't need "Bootleg".

Don't ever run another mod's installer after Bootleg has been used. There are Anxious Hearts options set in Bootleg (A03b), and until we release the next update, those are what must be used.

I know I should not be mixing mods, but the reason I really wanted to NOT use ff7music is that I found it buggy with music lagging, cutting and bugging out. After continuous gameplay the music sync and issues eventually get worse and worse. I'm not sure if this is a common problem but it's really annoying.

So I now understand A04 Release needs Aali's Latest Driver which was outdated in Bootleg 040 and it does not require ff7music to run anymore. This is why the .cfg was invalid and could not be found. I can actually get it working but alas the new release of Aali's driver now breaks the new battle interface mod installed by bootleg, massive black bar where the battle menu is. And trying to install another battle interface via Reunion/Team Avalanche will probably break something else since it will override bootleg 040's settings? Sigh, I guess I will wait for an updated bootleg in that case and bear with the buggy music.

And I didn't want to sound mean when I said vague, it wasn't aimed at you directly but rather my frustration with the majority of the mods on here. In comparison to say modding a game like Skyrim which comes with a much larger community + mod manager, trying to get things to work here is more of a headache. A couple things they really do well there is emphasizing full install instructions, preview pictures/video and FAQ etc.

Your problem is the reason I install only the things I like and from scratch.  The mods I created were designed to work together.  I have never used bootleg so I can't tell you how that works, or the problems it has.

I only know I use the following:  Reunion + Anxious Heart + new Aali driver.

That's it :)    The hardcore mod should be okay if installed before Reunion, but other than that, there may be issues.

Some mods are never going to work well together.

All of my installers are designed to be used on their own.

Reunion + AH + new Aali + 7thHeaven for textures sounds like a good combination.
