Skipping FMVs is warned about in help file.
I know. Still worth it to document it though. A, it will help those who want to skip as many of them as possible. B, if a way is ever discovered to actually fix them, your bug document is well organized and and would serve the purpose well as a one-stop shop for the instances it occurs in.

I'll see if anything can be done about it - if not, I'll disable skipping for problem FMV.

Hey, DLPB. I've been struggling to find a full answer on the small model size within fields issue. I've looked in the bug reports, help files and the forums but I can't find much on it, so I'm gonna ask here. Forgive me if you've heard this 1000 times but is correcting the Kaldarasha field model sizes to look larger on the table for you or no?

I've been playing around with HRCResizer and Makou to varying levels of failure success, but since this is my first playthrough and first crack at FF7 modding, I'm not convinced I know what I'm doing.

Anyway, I'm really enjoying the mod and the game. I've got a bunch of other mods installed under Custom, so the mod framework seems solid, too. I hope you keep everything going. Thanks.

Possibly but not a priority at this time.

Completely understandable. I'm tempted to start working through the flevel.lgp in Makou to do each field myself (I'm bored :D) but I believe the next time you update Reunion, my changes would be lost and it would all be for nothing. It's a tad immersion-breaking when I flip back to stock graphics and see the size difference but I can deal with that.

 

Thanks, again!

need testers.  Use this file and play at least 1 hour of battles and send me app.log  - if crash, let me know as well and send as soon as crash.  No crash = 1 hour of data.  It attempts to fix the crash with a custom TRY CATCH.  A sloppy work around.

Forget it.  Bug still exists.  I think only hope failing the bug being located in this code is to just merge ffxn to this and update to work properly with Reunion.

I'm now near the end of my playthrough and the Reunion/retranslation truly enhanced my love for the game even more. Tifa repairing Cloud's mind finally made sense!  :P

Now the only issue I have, is that the item duplication trick doesn't seem to work with Reunion enabled? I saw some people in a Steam forum reporting this too. I was wanting to do 100% this run and grind on those Magic Pots, but with only a dozen Elixers now that won't be possible.  My goal is to beat Emerald without resorting to KOTR at all (did this back in the day when I was a kid since I didn't want to bother with chocobo breeding lol)

So is there anyway to get around the duplication issue?

you have to disable reunion in options.ini, then load your save in vanilla and do your duping, then transfer that save back to reunion and re-enable

So disabling the mod, copy/pasting my save file over and doing the duplicate, then reversing all that won't mess up the save file or anything?

Yeah that worked! Wow, pretty nasty seeing and hearing the vanilla version in comparison after playing through the whole Reunion hehe.

If you're gonna cheat - may as well just use Black Chocobo or Ochu to add 99 Elixir.  The in-game way of doing it without cheating is to morph the Master Tombery.  or steal or whatever.

Is there a file with the translation words that I can edit?

I absolutely *love* a large majority of the translation, and a lot of items that were renamed (e.g. Fire2 renamed to Fira), but there are a few items, like the material "Elemental" being changed to "Property" that just didn't sit right with me. Is there a way I can reset a few words that didn't sit right with me? Or is this more of an all or nothing deal?

i actually agree with you, for me i wish the series canon option changed gold needle to soft, but for the most part you have to get DLPB to agree with you for a change to be made, and i dont think that happens very often  :-P

Not only that but because soft means nothing and Gold Needle was even how it was translated in earlier titles.  You'll need to learn to use the tools provided to edit the game.  Right now, way too busy to assist with that.  There's no feasible way anyone in my position could give options for every single person's tastes.

Gotcha, I was a bit afraid of that. Was hoping that it was some easy-to-use XML file or something. No worries. Thanks for everything! This was a really well-made mod.

I do have plans to make more of it external but there's no way to do it with the field files at present...  so dialogue needs altering as well you see

I am currently merging latest ffnx to R06g and good progress being made.  Obviously, stripping out a lot of stuff that's not needed - but I think the fixes will be worth it.  What of the shaders though?  The one I am currently using is great.  Any good ones we can use?

This isn't really what you're looking for, but there is a text document labelled "Exe" in *\FINAL FANTASY VII\The_Reunion\BASE\New_Translation\text, which you can change some things like status effects ('anger' just wasn't doing it for me, so I changed it to "rage"), and also some options from the menu such as sorting materia and the like. You just open it with Notepad, replace the word and save. Maybe it's something you can use?

It's not. He'll need other tools too.

Hey there, I just started using the reunion mod. It's taken me hours to get it all set up properly with remako mod, so it seems like almost everything is finally working, except a very important part, the re-translation.  Other parts of the mod are working, like 60fps battles. Remako is working too. But the re-translation is just not doing anything. I check by seeing is phoenix down is changed, and it isnt. This is making me crazy. For the love of god please help.

Any plans for adding the Honeybee inn cut content with the transition to FFxn driver? Or not sooner than R07? Also, will the transition still be R06 or will become R07?

Oh, and a quick question, does someone know if there's something that can make the "Load" option available at the status screen, or just make "Quit" go into the title screen, instead of closing the game. Does anybody know if this exists and share a link please?

I know there is a button combo that Reunion has which returns you to the title screen, but for some reason, it always led me to crashes which is why i tried to avoid it. At least in the past releases. I haven't tested it as much in the updates that came out since, but still having the "Quit" option take you to the title screen would be much comfortable to me.
