Here, have this, it really does help.  It isn't syrupy, either.

I've been trying to get this thing to work properly along with The Remako texture mod. The good news is that the game is playable and the background mod seems to work.

The bad news is that I've got the following issues:

1. The menu UI during battle is messed up in a few places: the ATB bar has glitched effects, the command menu for spells is massive (scrolls infinitely), and there are some other missing elements

2. I wanted to use my DS4 to play it, and I thought the easiest method would be to add the 7th Heaven launcher as a Non-Steam Shortcut, that way I can map the keys on my controller. Currently only a few commands work, like movement and selecting, but things like cancel (and thus run) or opening the menu don't work even though I should have the right keys mapped (V for menu, B for cancel/run, etc)

3. Can the resolution be increased, or it's meant to run at the default setting?

4. There a way to skip the logos?

Steam has its own controller mapper DS4 isn't needed if you lunch the game through Steam

FF7 is limited to by its input driver, that is based on Direct Input from DirectX5 1997. While this version did see improved support for controllers it does not support enough buttons or axis to read all the ones on a more modern controller like a ps3 or ps4 controller (iirc you can do this w/ ps2 only because you can toggle the axis mapping w/ the analog button).  The ps4 controller has 13 axis  d-pad x/y, L-Stick x/y R-Stick X/y trackpad X/Y L2,R2 and physical X/Y/Z and 14 buttons. When you computer uses them it will map them to various axis and button numbers for applications to use . FF7 can still only access, axis 0/1 and buttons 0-9. To Fix this I use an application like joy2key and just map keyboard inputs to the controller buttons externally of FF7, still not perfect but its much easier to map so i can switch between dpad and analog stick like i used to with a ps2 or ps1 dual shock but now over bluetooth.

3. See the ini config file for aali's driver in your install path.

4. Wanna skip the logos remove the movie files the game will fail to load them and move on

R06 will come with option of skipping intro vids without deleting vids and one day I may look into adding further controller support - but that's a way off.

As I said, I'm using the controller configuration option on Steam when launching the Seventh Heaven launcher as a shortcut. But some commands aren't taking: for example, if I map V for the inventory to a button, it won't open up.

Is APP the ini file? Here's what it says:

Original resolution 640x480, window size 1920x1080, output resolution 1440x1080, internal resolution 3840x2160

I just want a 1920x1080 fullscreen resolution, if possible.

Where are the movie files located?

EDIT: I've solved my controller issues, turns out I didn't have the correct keys mapped. It works properly on Steam now.

The only problem I have left is the messed up menu UI during battle. I'm pretty sure this has to do with the menu enhancement, but I'm not seeing a way to keep that out when installing the Reunion mod files.

in your ff7 install path you should see ff7_opengl.cfg file
look for the options below just swap the resolution you want in to the windows x and y sizes

window_size_x = 3840
window_size_y = 2160
preserve_aspect = yes
fullscreen = yes

Just discovered The Reunion after FF7 Remake hype encouraged me to go back and revisit the game.
Is the download for R05c no longer being seeded? My tracker doesn't seem to want to download it (reset firewall, double check with other torrents, etc).

I know R06 is nearing release, but I've got the next week off work so I don't mind playing the "pretty close to done" re-localization on R05c if it's still available.

My apologies if this has been answered elsewhere (I did search the forum, I swear! haha).

Appreciate the crazy amount of work you all are doing!

Which tracker are you trying to connect to?  I'm seeing 40 seeders, 0 leechers on tracker.opentrackr.org.

Quick question: Why Tifa doesn't say anything to Cloud while in Kalm explaining about Nibelheim?

Oh ok, weird. I'm using Opentrackr as well but seeing 0 seeders, 0 leechers. It's probably my client, haven't had issues with any other torrent but sometimes that's how it goes. Thanks so much for letting me know!

I'd say R05c isn't pretty close to done ;)

Haha, fair enough. I hadn't realized how much work has gone into updating the localization between the 2 releases (other than the Red XIII overhaul, which I'm sure was a large undertaking unto itself). If the R06 re-localization is that big of a change I may wait.

Appreciate you taking the time to respond!

She's afraid all the way through the game until Midhir - because she's seen him lose his mind whenever his fake self is questioned.  This is made a lot clearer in the relocalization.

Also Tifa does say something after the flashback. Immediately after Barret storms off, she asks Cloud about her injury. This isn't meaningless dialogue - she's probing him: if he wasn't there, how does he know exactly what happened to her?

Many players tend to forget the situation the party is in during the first disc and unfairly blame Tifa for what happens. I mentioned this earlier in the thread:

... "[So] why didn't she just come out and tell everyone that Cloud is lying?" - the fact that she was in critical condition/close to comatose at such a key moment means she's not the most reliable witness and can't account for everything that happened. I wouldn't blame her for doubting what she knows. Even if she wanted to (she doesn't) she's not in the strongest position to call Cloud out. And if she did, all it would accomplish is dividing the party and pushing Cloud away. Her decision to keep what she remembers to herself and secretly seek out the truth actually makes sense.

Remember, Tifa doesn't know (until it's too late) that this will all lead to Sephiroth summoning Meteor. No one does, including us when we were first-time players. It's only with the hindsight of having played through the game that we know the consequences.

Thanks to clarify! Glad and excited for the updates, what’s left on the R06 to-do-list?

1. A LOT of testing
2. A few script updates
3. Finalization of installer and process
4. Help file including tutorial video for modders
5. A couple of exe fixes
6. Liaise with Myst6re about getting Makou update finished to support new opcodes.
7.  Complete all due updates for localization.

It's not far off :)

So looking forward to playing R06, possibly in conjunction with one of the upscale mods. Discounting any unforeseen bugs, it'll be the modern english version of Final Fantasy VII that Square should have released many years ago.

I have a question about the "menu enhancements" portion of the mod. While I understand that the mod isn't optional, could an option be added to keep the interface backgrounds in battles solid rather than transparent? That's really my only problem with them.

Thanks and I'm very much looking forward to R06!

Just wondering how compatible Reunion and the Background mod is together. Any problems so far? I was under the impression that there were some issues getting these two mods to work together, although that might have been misinformation on my part.

Is there a thread on the AI upscale mod here on qhimm? I searched but didn't find anything. I'd like to follow the progress.
