@the_randomizer85 The Texture folder needs to be the same, Reunion or Textures (for 7th heaven), verify ff7_config/ Aali ModPath to be sure and you need to Lauch the game from 7th Heaven.exe

What if there was no textures folder generated when downloading the mod? I'm looking in the FF7 directory and no such directory was created or downloaded..?  Something's off here.  :o

You'll find it in the 'mod' folder.

Huh. I was just looking in there, and a texture folder was never generated, even when downloading the mod itself, it's like, nonexistent. Something's really off here ><

Something tells me that I'm the only one to have this issue, and resolving it is going to be...interesting. I have a headache.

Edit: Perhaps there are leftover folders from the last time I tried the mod. Gonna to delete all unnecessary folders and try from scratch.

If it isn't present then create it. Actually the GC for 7th Heaven should create it.

Yeah, the texture folder generated this time around. Also, I assume I can use both mods at the same time right? I can use 7H for the texture filter, but Reunion for the others I want to use?  Hopefully this time the games doesn't get those corrupted textures again. What is the load order supposed to look like?

Nope, the driver use either textures or reunion, BUT you can take the files from the reunion and copy them over to textures.

Yeah, so about that. So the texture folder is there, right? Well, even after downloading the 3.3 GB texture pack, the texture folder is completely empty for some reason. Like, 7th Heaven "downloaded" it, but it's nowhere to be found. What gives?  I'm...starting to get a feeling of anathema right now. :-\


Edit: Are we supposed to extract the IRO files that it downloads and put it in textures or what? The only thing I want from Reunion are the model overhaul mods, 60 fps mod, and translation, that's really it.

Edit 2: Yeah, this is weird, despite having the texture path set to the Textures folder, Ozmy's texture pack is NOT installing to the folder. How does that work?

Final: Oh! The texture filtering seems to be working, weird, now, I wonder if I can now use Reunion for those three mods xD Now to map the Xbox 360 controller so it works with the d-pad.

Place these files in your FF7 root folder:

Thank you, also regarding Reunion royally ruining the filtered backgrounds (again, the conflict with 7H filter), I can't seem to get them to work, despite moving files around, doesn't seem to be reverting back to the filtered texture state. Weird.

You don't need to extract any iros files. Once you run the game through 7th heaven it will then place everything you need in the correct folder for you. Then when you close it it takes them back out again. This way nothing can ever break by having to do them yourself.

So its fine that the folder is empty.

Once 7th heaven is installed. And you've used the game converter. Then install the reunion itself from this thread. Change the modpath to textures in the opengl and run the game. It should be that easy. I find if I don't change the modpath all the text is miss aligned  and too big for the boxes so changing to me was nessesary.

Then once you have the field backgrounds mod downloaded jisy have them activated and all should be fine.

That's just it, the mod path is set to Textures, I didn't even change it, and yet Reunion being installed once 7H is installed ruins all the filtering. I mean, sure if I could replicate all the model mods that Reunion had in 7H (every single battle, field, NPC), then sure, I would use that instead, but unfortunately, no such mods exist on 7H.  I'm really close to throwing my arms up.

When the latest Reunion is released, it will no longer require the current installation methods.  So it may fix all these issues anyway.

I'm...trying to understand everything that's going on, all I really wanted was a way to filter the backgrounds in the Steam version (similar to the Tonberry FFVIII mod), that's all I really wanted in the end. I never meant for any of this BS, or my posts of ingratitude. Ugh, I feel absolutely horrible :(

I haven't had a problem with your posts tbh. It's not related to The Reunion really, but I've given up caring as much about offtopic posts. 

I don't use 7h so I can't do much about all this.  All I'd say is that the modpath is usually where it all happens, so as long as all files are in there, it's good.  But you can't use 7h menu / retranslation with the installer on this thread.

I was just frustrated, I couldn't get anything to work, that's all. Thank you for your replies though, and I look forward to seeing updates to this.

Edit: For filtering, I can always use this http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=162106660&searchtext=SweetFX

I almost forgot it existed.

Not sure if this one has already been caught yet: If Tifa gets chosen by Don Corneo she'll say "But you know, Don, I'd like you explain something first..."

Is there mean't to be a 'to' between you and explain?

Also, when the Cloud meets Aerith in the church, she simply asks "Say, I feel like talking. Are you up for it?"
Is this what was asked in the original script? It seems like a bizzare thing to ask, especially as she then goes to check her flowers. Is she meant to be asking Cloud if he is willing to wait around to continue their chat until after she has finished tending to the flowers?

I think it's in original script but I have to agree I found that odd when I played through.  So I will check with Luksy and Charlie beer, as Japanese is VERY context based. 

As for the former, yup - it's an error.  Fixed.  8)

Interesting, that does seem a bit odd. I wonder if she meant "Could you hold on for a bit?" (while she checks the flowers), or if she's referring to the fact that he just fell a million miles and might still be feeling out of it. Or maybe she's just being shy and it's more like "I'd like to talk for a bit if that's okay with you..." (but she doesn't seem particularly shy elsewhere).

Hi,
I'm playing with steam 1.09 but I can't make your menu overhaul to work. It just doesn't show up. (using r05).

Do I have to install Aali drivers ?

PS: I installed aali after and ran the reg file but it didn't work.
PS2: the 60 fps patch makes my game slow when animation (like magic) run.
PS3: I did not use the game converter, do I have to ?


thanks and keep doing the good work !
congrats

@tomume, Menu Overhaul is not available on R05, it ended on R03e if I am not mistaken.

If you are only using this mod R05 on Steam Version, you don't need to download Aali Driver or game converter ( this includes Aali Driver as well ).
Only if you use older mods or 7th Heaven Mods you will need convert.

thanks ! I played the game with an early release of the reunion and the menu overhaul was included.

Is it worth it to play with other mods ? I mean, what mods would you add to your game ? NPC models? Boss models? etc ?

Also, the steam version included better music, is it still worth it installing the anxious heart ?

Can I install the Waifu background along the reunion and without the game converter ?

thanks !

Your best bet for backgrounds is to use the SweetFX CRT/scanline mod, if you don't want to convert. Stupidly enough, Waifu is made impossible thanks to the Steam version, you have to convert otherwise.

You have to convert it first, delete ff7_en.ex, then when running Reunion, it detects it as the Win 98 version. But beware, it conflicts with 7H's filter and removes it somehow.

That's what's said in Japanese, she immediately goes on to ask him to wait a second while she tends to the flowers, presumably to make sure they're all right after being crushed by cloud's gelled up spikes.
