kidalot, did you follow this part exactly?  With antivirus/firewall disabled?  This says to save right after you get past the counter, and I assume you would change everything back right after that.

➣ I can't see the counters for the Shinra Mansion Safe, Junon Parade, Gaea's Cliff, Rocket Launch Countdown, etc.

Make a backup of [gamedir]\mods\Bootleg.
Install Menu Overhaul with "Re-Translation Project [R04]" checked.
Go to [gamedir]\mods\DK and copy all its contents to [gamedir]\mods\Bootleg. Overwrite everything when asked.
Open up Bootloader Configure and change the Mod Path back to "Bootleg" OR open ff7_opengl.cfg with Notepad and edit mod_path = Bootleg. Be sure to save the file.
Play the game passed the counter and save right after.
If you don't like the translated text, run Menu Overhaul again with "Uninstall this mod" checked at the bottom.
Go to the backup from Step 1 and copy all its contents to [gamedir]\mods\Bootleg. Overwrite everything when asked.

Tried following the guide word for word

Install Menu Overhaul with "Re-Translation Project [R04]" checked. - Yes did this. Even tried deselecting everything apart from Re-Translation [R04]

Go to [gamedir]\mods\DK and copy all its contents to [gamedir]\mods\Bootleg. Overwrite everything when asked. - All Folders were copied from within the DK Folder to the mod folder the the game install file and were replaced.

Open up Bootloader Configure and change the Mod Path back to "Bootleg" OR open ff7_opengl.cfg with Notepad and edit mod_path = Bootleg. Be sure to save the file.
Play the game passed the counter and save right after. - Changed Mod = Bootleg within Bootloader Configure.

lay the game passed the counter and save right after. This part isn't actually possible, yes I was able to see the safe combination but as soon as you open the safe you don't have control a text box 'success' appears all you can press is the OK button and this triggers the fight and the crash. So not sure how to get around this, unless there was a way to save without going into in game menu?

I've already used this method for the Shinra Parade thing but there wasn't any fights in that section.

I seem to be getting a lot of parts missing or missing files errors when bootleg sets the game up. I have downloaded the torrent files and given all of the admin privileges before installation. The music or difficulty mods are not installing either, even when selected from the drop down menus.

The bootleg installation seems very quick as well as if it is skipping or missing installations, I thought it was meant to take a while?

nvm, bootleg just forgot the custom path I assigned for the mod folder. One more question, is the bootloader mod path meant to just say bootleg on its own? Or should it have a proper installation path in the box, bootleg was just the default...

Got it working. I think it was the cut scenes failing that were causing the in game graphics to fail.

Since there was No help given for this issue the only way I did this was by inputting the combination using the top edge of the digits - not easy when you have a timer....no one else have this issue?

Go to your Steam library and right-click the game, select Properties at the bottom, then select the Language tab. Set the game to English.

It is set to English.

... I just noticed where the patcher is looking.  It's looking in my old install location, not the new one.

Hey everyone. I started creating my own music mixes for FF7Music. But I realized that songs don't play during FMVs. Instead, the FMVs have their own audio. For example, the Opening FMV has its own music instead of playing the Opening and Bombing Mission music configured in FF7Music.

Is there any way to replace the FMV audio with your own, without of course replacing the actual audio on the AVI file?

I Followed all the instructions in the video and the game refuses to even launch ( from both Bootloader and normal steam EN edition).

It launches to a black screen, I get a few artifacts ( like when you're display driver crashes) and no error message. Not sure what the deal is, little disappointed as this took some time but I would like to give this another go. I'm running a Nvidia 750ti, I5, 8gb Ram if that helps at all.

Would appreciate some help, would supply any additional info if need be.

I also couldn't get the 7th Heaven DLs to work with all that Megasync stuff, anyone else have any issues?

Post a screen shot to show me what you mean.

First thing that should always be done (stated in the tutorial as well) is to check your APP.log. If you can't figure out anything from it, then post it here for us to look at.

Been trying to get the mod working for a bit now, still a bit new to modding. I have the steam version installed and whenever I finish modding properly and run the game, it crashes as soon as I get into the first battle every time. Not sure what the issue is.

Hey Alyzya!

I have the Steam version and a have some questions:

1) If i instal bootleg, i'll lose all achievs and save games?

2) i'll have to start from the beginning?

3) Starting from the beginning, I will win the achievments or bootleg cancels the rewards?


Thank you!

I have a question. I played this game a while ago and seeing that it's going to get remade made me want to buy the steam version so I bought it and I'm just now getting back into playing it again but I was curious on what the difference is between "Tifa's Bootleg" and "Tifa's Final Heaven".  Yes, I have googled it and I can't seem to find any clear cut information. Can someone put into lamens terms what the difference is so I can make the best decision. I would surely appreciate it.
