I've tried this a lot over past few days with different versions of things.  I am using 12.1 and I get:

Error 8800  The functionality may not be available in this version of Photoshop.  The command <unknown>  is not available.

Line 1089
Execute action  (perfectumonezerozero,desc3, dialoguemodes.no);

I take it this means my version of perfectum (v2+) HAS to be 1.4?  Can anyone edit the script for me to remove perfectum completely?  I don't even want to use it!


edit:  yeah it is that.  I don't like that smoother (it makes the backgrounds look plastic and fake), so if anyone will remove it from script for me, I would be very grateful.

edit 2, I just removed the sections between { and } and that seems to have done the trick.  Why anyone would use that grain or smoother is beyond me.  Other than that Facepalmer is great :)

Hey guys. I am posting in a few threads to try to find a solution to a problem I am having. I just downloaded FF7 bootleg and the only mod I have yet to finish is facepalmer. The torrent has been stuck at 98.8% for hours now. Also, I tried to dl the individual rar files (1-20) but part 7 link is down. This is the only thing preventing me from playing the game. I was wondering if someone could reupload part 7 or help me with a solution. Thanks everyone.

Hiya folks!  New to the forums though I've been lurking for quite a while.

I'm a little new to all of this and was wondering if someone could give me a hand using Palm to open field files and export them as PNGs.  I'm able to open them one by one with ease, but when I select "batch import" I get "no files specified on the command line."

I've gone ahead and tried specifying folders on the command line, but it seems to want individual file names.  Since I can only put one file name at a time, the program simply imports that one file - if that makes any sense to y'all.

This is probably something really obvious, and I'm not totally sure if this question is appropriate for this thread, but any help you could give me would be awesome :)

And if there's a thread or something that tells me how to do this all and I'm just search-incompetent please forgive :)

I'm kind of stuck myself I think. I just want to play the game with the graphics I downloaded, but I'm not sure if I installed it correctly or because I just haven't encountered any new fixed scenes yet.

I unzipped FacePalmer.zip and then unzipped all the parts inside that folder again into each separate folder, then I moved the whole FacePalmer directory into the "mods" directory created by Aali's driver, and edited the modpath. Is that all I have to do? I'm currently just on the second bombing mission so I might have not yet encountered anything improved yet.

Also whenever I unzip one of the texture archives inside FacePalmer directory I get this path; e.x: ancnt1.rar = Facepalmer\ancnt1\ancnt1

To me that seems wrong and should only have been Facepalmer\ancnt1\.

Thanks in advance :)

You are correct, try unzipping everything again. I ran into same problem when I first did this mod, tried again and unzipped correctly second time.
Also, bootleg can do this for you.

When you have to find and download everything anyway, then I don't see how bootleg can make it any easier on my part. I will try and extract everything again, seems like I found out how to do it right this time.

You also should be aware that there are many glitched textures in FacePalmer.  Some of them make parts of the game unplayable.  Many of the mods have broken parts.  Bootleg attempts to apply all the necessary fixes and make mods compatible with one another.

Here's the current list of glitched textures in FacePalmer (also includes BlackFan and the Field Packs):

Will these glitches textures have me start from a previous save or do I get a change to go back and save if I happen to meet one of the buggy ones?  :P

No, they don't affect a save game.
They're mostly glitched lighting textures.
Sometimes the fog textures obscure the characters.
Other times there are strange lines and other artifacts on the screen.
Removing the textures reverts to the vanilla versions.
Save games are unaffected.

Yeah, I just wondering about if I ever met a glitched texture when I played the game, will I be stuck or can I just walk out of that screen and find a save game and then remove that texture?

You shouldn't get stuck, since navigation is performed using walkmeshes which are not releated to the visible backgrounds.

Thanks to fan support and convincing personal messages from Salk  ;), I've finally returned to finish this project. Check the updated first post of this thread for the new script and also Omzy's FFVII Field Pack for what should be a 100% complete 4x game experience!

Now I find 4x overkill.  I should be able to resize these to 2x yup?  Since png is lossless it should work fine?

I don't see why not, but perhaps you'll find a reason  :P

Update: New comparison images posted in first post.

Thank you so much for finishing what you started, Omzy!

As I said before, this is in my opinion the best visual modification that could ever be made for Final Fantasy VII PC. Thanks for keeping your word about this.  :wink:

Thanks Salk,
I have a feeling that there are a few more special cases out there that I have yet to discover, so I hope you all will playtest and find them (screenshots are good enough if you don't know the file name).

Is there any documentation how to process the palmer png output to resize it besides the Photoshop script? Then I could try to build a free processing pipeline without Photoshop (eg. with imageMagick).

Well its using perfect resize and a lot of photoshop specific plugins so I am not sure.  There doesn't appear to be too many comments in the script itself so its kinda hard to tell.  Anyhow I was getting better image quality with photoshop CS's new image resizing algorithms but I haven't done anything with it because I'd rather focus on a more elegant solution such as shaders.  Alas the documentation is lacking a bit in that department as well.
