Wow, this is cool Mcindus, thanks for your work.

We'll soon have a fully upscaled FF8 so... better to improve Tonberry ASAP xD

My agenda:
SeeD Reborn v3.2 Italian (75% complete)
Tripod v1.1 German (75% complete)
Tripod v1.1 French (50% complete)
Tripod v1.1 Italian (50% complete)
Hellfire Pack (80% complete) - but until animations work, I probably won't release a pack.
Battlefields v1.0 (80% hashed, 10% complete)

And this does not include SeeD Reborn v3.3, Tripod v1.2, and HorizonPack v2.2 updates!
These last few are long-running and will most likely be out sometime before 2016.

As you can see above, I'm also working on doing the battlefield backgrounds.
Only a few of them will be completely overhauled (just like HorizonPack) but I really do feel the upscale is quite an improvement.  The world battlefields are easy to hash -- it's the instanced battle fields that are hard to mine through the game for.

I know I know bro, animations and collisions are our biggest obstacle now. The good new is that Tonberry is now a two man project. Mavirick has joined and he is working hard on a bunch of hashing improvements, while I'm working on a better texture caching method. Just sit and wait ;)

I love these. I can't wait to try them out!

I'm still trying to remain patient and will play once everything gets overhauled more or less, but seeing this makes me want to cheat a bit ;)

Man, it looks like I'm going to have to hand Valve my $5 one of these days. Too many good graphical mods are coming out and I only have the original release :(

Well this is my first post but never the less I just wanted to report the issue I had!
(Sidenote: I am planning to start working on mods and join in on the fun of remaking pieces of FFVIII!)

@Mcindus, Everything you have done for this game thus far has made me super excited, I have already put in about 15 hours in the past two day!

Anyhow I have run into a graphical error, I will edit and post a photo asap.
The error is with Carbuncle, instead of green he/she becomes red and has texture tearing. <<This only happened after installing Lunar Cry.

Edit:


Do you have collisions.csv and hash2map.csv in the tonberry folder?  Find them on the tonberry 2.0 post under the main post (in my post) or in the original Tonberry 1.5 download

Thanks for the heads up, I reinstalled Tonberry and that fixed the issue! ^-^

No, it's a texture mod, not a gameplay mod.
