Which purpose does the patch have? Essentially, it looks like
>new user -> buys new ff7 pc -> converts it to old -> can use all mods
is your goal.
Or are you going to try and keep some of the 'improvements' from the re-release?
Yeah that is the basic goal, the only thing kept from the new release is the movies, everything else is the original game (which can be modded)
I'm cool with it.
Good enough for me, thanks for permission.
OK here is a first beta version (this may have bugs that's why it is a beta version, once i know this works i will make a new thread in the release section)
So far it is only for the English language, i intend to make ones to convert other languages at a later date if possible.http://www.mediafire.com/?azlaszup1sgtgsi
run that and set it to the correct folder then install, it should do all the patching and file copying automatically, after the installer finishes then you need to do something, run FF7Config and setup Aali's driver and fullscreen on the graphics page and also setup your sound settings, apply the settings and close FF7Config,
now you need to sort out how to pass the CD checks, if you have the original CD insert them into your D:\ CD drive, if you do not have them i recommend you set up a virtual CD drive and use Dummy ISO's or use the method of renaming a Harddrive or USB drive to FF7DISC1, if you need more help on this i will try to help but if you are upto speed now all you need to do is run FF7.exe and you should be able to run the old version of the game.
I have also tried to leave the new version intact as much as possible so with any luck this will not get in the way of the new version, also this has only been tested on a 32bit OS so anyone with a 64bit OS who can test it would be helpful.
