I see what you're angling for; it'll definitely be done sometime this week.

That's it completed, I'm just going through all my old notes and getting rid of the old ones and looking for quick things here and there to add in. Made a few revisions, like the CPR event only taking one breath (I always hated how long CPR would take), a few refinements, and, well, this: http://youtu.be/SLL3UB-WeVA

1.3 will be uploaded and made available within the next few hours, unless some kind of cataclysm occurs. I've test-played through Midgar and various other areas to ensure that there's no serious problems popping up that could cause crashes/soft-locks/other issues, and enemies have been tested extensively to make sure that their AI is working and everyone is present and correct. The EXP arc issue was also resolved, so the arc is now repaired without the sudden 'jumps' that would occur between Lv.61 and 81.

Last thing that needs doing is preparing a 'database' that details equipment locations, etc. I'll be doing that as the patch and other materials upload. But yeah, thanks for your patience and hopefully it'll have been worth the wait.

Edit: 1.3 of the NT Mod is now live (properly this time). God-willing, there won't be anything overlooked but let me know pronto if you notice anything out of the ordinary.

Cheers, bud. I hope you enjoy it.

As for the change in hosting site, somebody told me that they couldn't get the file from Mediafire, so I swapped to Mega instead. Let me know if there's any trouble downloading it from there, though. I can always put it on Mediafire as well if need be.

Chrome tends to block a lot of MEGA downloads from this site, so I have to use Firefox to get them. You can always look into Google Drive and be able to monitor the download stats.

Just went on Google Drive and must have used it before; I found a tonne of NT Alpha files/patches sitting on it. I'll put the new version on there so you don't need to swap browsers.

Yeah, about that; what do you need from me for 7H, Alyza? Another list of modified fields, etc?

Well, I prefer the files separated, otherwise I just use the installer on a fresh install and pull out the files needed. The battle.lgp is the big one trying to find which files were modified.

Sega I streamed all night and got to the segment where you buy the batteries, think your new quest is causing a problem I can't proceed past the wall and hanging wire. I sent you some messages on steam of my highlights of these bugs, check my twitch if you didn't get anything.

I just checked the area, with and without batteries, and it seems to be functioning normally. My best guess is that a stray variable might be the culprit; I'll check your twitch highlights, Steam seems to be down at the moment.

Edit: Saw the highlight, seems a variable got triggered out of place. Specifically, it was Biggs' talk script just before going into Reactor 5.

Edit 2: I've replaced the variable with something else. I'll update the files.

Edit 3: And that's the Dragon Fang from Honey Bee Inn  fixed too. Re-uploading the installer.

I posted a link for an IRO on the first page, but if you're playing through Alyza's catalogue then it might be a better idea to wait for that. I'm still not 100% sure if I should be posting a link for a separate IRO file here or not.

Edit: Installer is back up. Seeing how early it is after release, I just updated the Installer itself rather than make a hotfix patch this time.

Some issues popped up. The first was a dodgy trigger for the Wire you use to climb into the Shinra HQ building + a respawning item in the Honey Bee Inn. Currently, it's down because an encounter with Mirage Weapon can be fought in the first three screens of the game. Why didn't I notice that when I was playing? Because if you run through these first three field screens without straying too far from the path, you won't run into an encounter until the 4th screen which is safe.

I'd normally release a hotfix patch but it's Day 1 so I want to avoid confusing first time players about whether they have to use the Hotfix patches after using the main installer or not.

Alright since most of the glaring issues seem to be out of the way, I wanted to do what I said and say I'll be streaming often until I've torn this thing down to the ground. You can view my streams and past recordings at twitch.tv/cicadian , I hope everyone takes the time to actually play this though its a lot of fun.

hey sega chief

i just thought of a idea

my idea is this, why don't you add a small mini boss battle with the 2 turks in the sierra elevator before the party gets arrested

what do you think about that idea

and can you add the ff7 boss battle music to the hella gunner and thousand gunner battle

thanks

Could do, would be an early Rude battle. And I can set the Gunners to use the boss theme; they've always used the regular battle music for whatever reason.
