The first thing you didn't do was read the license in the installer.  That's the readme.

Thanks for your amazing work.  I've been really enjoying it in my replay, but I did notice an oddity.  In the scene recruiting Yuffie, rather than her usual theme music the background plays the music from the mythril cave.  It's been a while since I played it on ps1, so I wasn't sure if this was normal or not.  did anyone else notice this?  I'm playing the re-release from the square-enix store converted using the game converter and aali's newest driver installed.  thanks for the help

That's not the fault of this mod.  It's likely a script error or a problem with PC version.

First of all, thanks so much for putting this together, it's a great collection of tracks.  Thanks for putting in the work to loop the OST as well.

I wanted to ask a question about the selection of tracks you've chosen.  I've browsed this whole thread but couldn't find a complete tracklist for the individual settings in the mod.

If you could point me to one or provide one for me, I would greatly appreciate it.

Again, thanks for your work on this mod, it's an invaluable addition.

There isn't one.  Try them or read the readme.  That's about all the help I can give you :P

Ah, that's too bad.

I don't get anything clicking the "Readme" button in 7th Heaven, is the readme hosted elsewhere?

For that release it's inside the installer. You don't need 7th heaven - just download the installer from here.

Well, I went and torrented the 300 meg installer despite already having it installed with 7thHeaven just to read the license text but nope, no help there.

Forgive me for being confused about this, but how am I supposed to know what's in each selection?  By what criteria am I choosing Fan Selection 1 or Fan Selection 2?  A number of these don't change a large selection of tracks.  It's quite confusing without a guide.

Do I need to play through the whole game to know which tracks are different and which ones they've been replaced by?

I feel like I'm missing something here.

There is no "fan selection 1" in my installer.  As I have told you, use MY installer from the first post of this thread.  Not 7th heaven.

Hello, I used your installer but I only hear the original music "Playstation style". I have the tracks in the file, but it only plays the originals.

Also, I have a suggestion, I just found a very talented musician who orchestrated a few tracks from FF7, they would be a great addition to Anxious Heart ^^ https://www.youtube.com/user/PiertasMusic/videos

I'm trying to cut some of them in Audition so they can loop but I don't know how to make them loop inside the game (especially when they have an intro before the loop starting point).

EDIT > OK I found out how to loop my new audio files, and also I had to rename them with the default names (like "yado.ogg" for the sleep music) and replace the original oggs, and now it works like a charm, I've been able to mix the OGGs given in Anxious Heart with BitSymphony's remakes, the orchestrations I share above in this post, and some of my own creation. I love how it sounds ^^ Thank you !

Okay, I get that you're telling me not to use 7thheaven, but it's the mod manager that I use to play FF7 with and support for Anxious Heart is included.

I tried getting support for 7thheaven and they told me to talk to you, since you're the mod's creator.

I guess nobody really knows what all of these separate soundtrack designations are, huh?



Maybe if you can't help me, somebody else in this thread can explain what these mean to me:

This thread is for bug reports regarding my installer or installation.  Clearly, this is neither.  If you want to know what the different options are - download my installer. Or just install them and see what you think.

Or create a new thread, please :)

It doesn't matter that 7th heaven supports my installer.  Those are not my options.  I can't do anything else for you in this thread.

What? I only see 4 posts from you, all of which are in this thread.

There is an option in 7H to preview audio files, but I haven't added it in yet. I will get around to it when I have the time. Until then, I guess use the installer and listen to them on your own time.

Even though those aren't DLPB's specific options he wrote in his installer, they are all still music files from Anxious Heart. I just simply made custom selections based upon what users would "probably" enjoy. Obviously the variations that could have been chosen for custom selections is WAY too many to all be added, so I left it at those. Take it or leave, I'm really not in the mood to cater to every specific request with 7H anymore. I've done it for so long now and it's worn me out. Sorry :|

You're at the same point I am at then.  That's why old Reunion was abandoned :)

Also the person above is being lazy.  It isn't difficult to either use my installer, or install the files to a dummy folder and test them.

Hey DLPB,

I'm having an issue installing this mod - every time I attempt to install it for the 2012 Steam Release (with your preset selection of tracks), it extracts a series of .logg files and fails to overwrite the files in the folder. I'm new to FFVII modding, and the only other thing I've installed for it is the latest release of Reunion. My antivirus is all turned off, ran it is an administrator, etc. Am I missing another driver or something?

Thanks for your help (and all the mods)!


Of course, the second I posted that and tried it again, it worked!

I'll be releasing an updated version of AH soon.  Installer will be slightly improved, but the main change will be that

15 - tb : Final Fantasy VII Main Theme B

will be correctly edited to make it play like the PSX version does.  At the moment, it is not looping a few times near the end and so it is running out before Cloud throws Sephiroth into the reactor.

I am having to reconstruct it.  There are two 6 second segments that do not appear in the OST (they are used in the alt version of the world map theme to bridge the loop). The PSF packs are also missing the alt version of the world map - so I have had to record it using emulator - and am now using the missing 12 seconds from there (also, roughly 1 second from the start).  This will mean that around 13 seconds of the reconstructed music will not be OST quality - but it's a small price to pay really.

I had a question about the official audio patch that restored the PS1 quality audio for the Steam version. Is the official patch's audio better quality than this one?

It is not. The official patch is, as you said, PS1 quality. Anxious Heart uses OST rips, not PS1 rips. The OST sounds slightly better, as it had additional post-production and mastering work beyond what was possible on the PS1.

If you want your music the most authentic to how it sounded in 1997 on the PlayStation, use the official patch.
If you want your music to sound the best it possibly can short of remixes, use Anxious Heart.

Thanks for the reply. Out of curiosity, at what bitrate are the vanilla OGGs for this and VIII encoded at?

He should use AH anyway because the cintro.ogg is wrong in the official patch. As far as I know AH installs the PSX music by default.

Bumping because i have useful info.

The reason the installer fails on the 2012 (steam) mode is because it tries to rename the new files without renaming the OLD ones first. 

if you move the old music files into  subdirectory, THEN run the installer it actually works.

if someone sends me the batch file used for the installer i can make the proper one easily enough and fix it.

I'll sort it, assuming that this issue exists.  I've probably already fixed it. ;)
