Doubt it's Reunion.  Please post bug reports when definitely Reunion ;)

A little more certain it's something to do with Reunion now after a little research and testing. Tried both removing the 'battle' folder with Remako's textures I placed in a 'Reunion' subfolder in mods, and deactivating the iro proper in 7th Heaven, and neither resulted in anything but slightly more pixelated planets. Doing both at the same time didn't produce results either, and having looked up video footage, this isn't something native to the PC version. Not likely to be something to do with my particular PC either, as googling for anything similar turned up nothing. All that's left to be causing it is Reunion. Perhaps it's something being caused by scripting or the unlocked battle framerate?

You'd have to test it with no mods at all.  If it's the 60fps mod doing it... that would make sense as it has bugs.  But other than that there isn't anything that would cause it.  Perhaps send a video.

DLPB - Able to replicate on my bare metal R05c install with 60fps enabled, but it's not Neo Bahamut with the issue, it's Bahamut ZERO.  Some flickering at the start of the summon, some of the mid-summon visuals missing, but nothing game-breaking.  Remako is NOT installed on my system.

Ah, yeah, I misspoke. I did, however, take some quick and dirty video footage. Honestly? Mild seizure warning for the flickering. It hurts my eyes even without being epileptic.

It's a known bug. I keep saying this but....  Reunion Database.

Before reporting a bug, please check that it isn't already noted in The Reunion Database, found HERE.

I'm at Cosmo Canyon for the first time, and after going up into the laboratory with Bugenhagen, he does his spiel. Right after he sucks the Lifestream from the Planet, it turns dark and falls into pieces. There's a split second where the camera pans outward to show the original wide view of Cloud, Bugenhagen, and your two other characters, and then the screen goes black. The music continues to play in the background, but I have no video. Uninstalling The Reunion fixed the problem.
This isn't a bug with Reunion.  Check The Reunion database. I've listed the issues with this map there. It's a coincidence that uninstalling R05 fixed it.

http://forums.qhimm.com/index.php?topic=14914.msg256066#msg256066 is this bug being reported in March 2018. (I reported it in July 2017).

In http://forums.qhimm.com/index.php?topic=14914.msg256073#msg256073 you have "heard of this issue before".

In http://forums.qhimm.com/index.php?topic=14914.msg256108#msg256108 you acknowledge it's a bug added by tonysonico.

And in http://forums.qhimm.com/index.php?topic=14914.msg256113#msg256113 you provided a fix; subsequent posts iterate towards a working fix (which unfortunately is no longer available on Google Drive).

Since it was added by tonysonico, you provided a fix but you don't fix other modders' stuff, and when I got it it could be made to happen every time if Reunion was installed and never happened if it wasn't, with no other mods (not even Anxious Heart, looking back at my notes from when I reported it), it seems like it might in fact be a bug in Reunion.

ETA: in fact, it's listed in the Reunion Database - 4th in "Reunion Bugs".

It may have been added by Tony's fix - but an original game bug exists there.  Can't be sure now. In any case, it's irrelevant.  It's listed as a bug and it's resolved.

I think it is unfortunate to have told someone who asked about it that it's not a Reunion bug; it also seems unfortunate that the fix from 2018 is now lost.

I'm also concerned that the post linked to in the Reunion database is the first version of the fix which didn't work. Obviously I don't know what actually made it into R06.

I provided a fix here.

Oversights like this can happen - It's impossible for mistakes not to happen.

Anything in the Reunion Database marked resolved will be part of R06. The error is listed in Reunion Database already but the quick fix was also broken and removed.  A newer fix was made recently.  I've updated the database.

Hey guys, im new here and not sure if i'm posting in the correct section but i was under the impression that reunion had a speed up option or a frame multiplier or something to give the game sort a fast forward type of thing. i am having trouble finding how to do it, if its a key combination or something. can anyone help me out?



Edit: after some searching, i did find a post that said to speed up/down you can use select + up/down however i tried this and it doesn't seem to work. vsync is off and the skip movie holding select + start does work. i am sorry i'm such a newb at this.

Also, if the key combo is select + up/down wouldn't that also cause some other things to happen? I believe the select button is also the "assist" button and it makes all the arrows above the exits, and up is usually walk forward in most cases, so wouldn't that combo cause that stuff to happen while you were using it? i'm sorry that i don't know anything. this is a fantastic mod though even without the fast forward option.

I'd give up with it.  R06 is infinitely better and has on-screen indications.  Just a waiting game.

I actually figured it out, it's select + target or select + page down (i think thats what it was lol). But i will DEF get r06 as soon as it comes out, this is the best mod for the game imo. Thanks for the help!

Also i know that in the epsxe version there is a key you can just hold down and while it is held it uncaps the frames and when released it caps them again. will r06 have anything like this? this is purely preferential and even if not it still works great i am just curious.

It is...  And it's not far away.  I'm currently sorting all the logging.

Reunion R05c will no longer be up for download starting 17th September.  This is because R06 is scheduled to be released very soon and R05c is ancient. Anxious Heart also comes as a part of R06.

If after that time someone wants to keep a mirror alive, then by all means do so.

DLPB,

can you give us a rough estimate of R06's file size?

Cheers!

Very excited for R06. Should be able to beat the game again before the Remake comes out  :)

YAY! Can't wait for R06. I really hope it'll be pretty easy to get it working together with Remako!

Hey, just wanted to pop in and say not too long ago I wanted to get into the Final Fantasy series and figured that FF7 was the best place for me to start out. Thankfully right before I started I found this mod and it really showed just how freak'en magical and special this game is. Thank you for the insane amount of work put into this, you're honestly preserving this game's legacy by polishing it up as much as you are.

I did have some questions though, especially if R06 is just around the corner.
What does the audio replacement do? I know it's not the anxious heart mod because that's coming next update.

Also for R06 I believe I read that anyone can replace any words they wanted. So if that's true are you still going to do the checklist like R05 had? So I could click off no-model overhaul, yes incorrect names and series canon for example? I appreciated how easy that was.

Lastly, if you are doing the checklist still I was wondering if you'd be interested in including the spelling of "Mythril" under series canon, because I've been playing some of the older games in the series and noticed they were spelled that way.

Thanks for everything! Hope I'm not an annoyance.

It replaces the original audio engine entirely and has psx sound effects in ogg format recorded from Mednafen.

R05 still has those options and is designed with modders in mind. Its better to wait rather than me explain it all.

I've taken a stance on this one of keeping Mithril.  The reasoning is that the change has been made for the English series due to fears of copyright and for no other reason.  Same with Ochu.

You're welcome. And you're not an annoyance.
