Ah, I think that was mentioned before with Icicle Inn. I checked and it's something I've done; for some reason, I've set it to check Party Leader is Cloud when leaving Great Glacier by the standard south exit. If it's Cloud, it goes to world map. If it's the others, it jumps to Icicle Inn field. The blue 'rollercoaster' also exits to Icicle Inn instead of the world map.

This is something that was done a very long time ago so I'm not sure what the goal with it was.

A save editor is probably best way to go for now; open the save file, and go to the Location tab. Click on Worldmap Location at the bottom. On the world map picture on the right, right click somewhere and select 'place tiny bronco/chocobo'. That should hopefully move the chocobo to a retrievable location.

As for the final screen, that's just a staging area to save the game + re-equip for the final boss; it currently has no exit.

Gotcha, thanks for the quick response. I ended up just saving over the file when I restarted in Arrange so the time for editing has come and gone. I'm good on this playthrough though and I haven't run into any other issues.

Though that being said, are there any notes on the bosses and such? I'm trying to go through every fight without knowing what's coming, but some of them had my head scratching afterwards. Fights like the Goldberries were previously discussed, but things like Mirage (at least on Arranged) seemed a little nuts. Then again, maybe Ribbons "preventing status change" also applies to recovering from ailments that punch through. Are there abilities that act like FFX-2's Pernicious Powder, with the whole 255% hit rate and hits through immunity thing?

Either way, killer stuff. Can't wait to do the rest.

Am I the only one who feels like morph needs a serious buff? I LOVE that it's available earlier in the game, but having to finish off an enemy with 0.1 * your normal attack damage just isn't fun. Half damage seems like it would be a lot more fun without being OP. Am I wrong?

I wouldn't really agree, Morph feels fine. You can get by just fine without ever using it, but the rewards for using it against certain enemies is very nice if you can put in the effort. For the ultimate weapon stuff endgame I think Yuffie's Conformer still ignores the Morph penalty, so that can be helpful with getting some morphs. But in that case, I think you can just get them as drops instead. There was also a series of posts earlier in this thread that discussed why boss morph were adjusted and why that incentive threw some things off.

To add to this point, the "work" weapons from Temple of the Ancients also can deal significant damage with Morph as they scale up depending on the amount of kills the person equipping them has if memory serves.

If Cid has 60 kills and Tifa has 170 kills, Tifa's Work Glove will hit like a truck compared to Cid's Mop. This also applies to Morph as the weapon calculation for the "work" weapons is entirely different.

As mentioned earlier as well, the good thing about Morph is getting access to very, very strong items/weapons/armors/accessories well before you're supposed to get them normally through the game. It's definitely something that's more rewarding for those with the patience but also not really required as you'll get your hands on the items eventually.

Thanks for the reply, I managed to finish the dark cave by disabling the mods above the New Threat (the ones below were fine).
I just finished the game and I must say I miss one thing... the final weapons, did you remove them?
I finished all side quests for L4 Limits and finished the game too but I never came across a single final weapon. I just missed Ozma (I really forgot about it).
I ended uping Masamune on Cloud and Max Ray on Barret (and Wizard Staff on Aeris), but I really wanted to see what was done to Ultima Weapon, Missing Score, ecc... oh well, I suppose I understand if you removed them, they did kinda make the game way too easy.

I got the final screen with the dance party telling that I finished the NT mod without using a single source.... but I did? I think I levelled all characters in the source screen to 8/8.

Going to face Ozma now.

Also, what are the Oversoul Shard and all those new key items such as X-ATM core, 7777 needle, ecc ecc for? Couldn't find a use for them in game.

Anyways, thank you very much for the mod, it's been great fun indeed.

Morph acts the same as base game but is too weak; I plan to boost the damage it deals.

Though that being said, are there any notes on the bosses and such? I'm trying to go through every fight without knowing what's coming, but some of them had my head scratching afterwards.

There aren't any notes/guides out there that I'm aware of, save for videos and streams. There were attacks that went through status immunity but I removed that flag from as many of them that I could find in a recent update. If you find attacks ignoring status immunity then it's important not to protect against that status as it'll prevent it from being healed.

Ultimate Weapons can be obtained from the guy in the blue house on the world map, near Gongaga (where Great Gospel is acquired in default game). Each weapon needs two weapons + an item to make.

Are you on the latest version? I thought I'd stripped out the no-source secret because it wasn't working properly.

How do I get this to work? I install the mod on steam and when I click the game it just keeps popping back up and doesnt load the game on steam. Any help?

The installer should be run, pointed at the FF7 folder, and that should be it patched.

If the game isn't running after patching, then there's two possibilities:

1) Antivirus is blocking the patched files, probably the .EXE in which case may need to right-click it, go to properties, and then click 'unblock' if it's there. Setting up FF7's directory as an exception in antivirus could also help.

2) Game is a cracked/pirated copy, in which case the mod installer has overwritten the .EXE changes to add its own, resulting in the crack no longer working.

Other possible cause might be it's a different language version but I think the file names themselves are different so it would likely still be running just with no changes if it was that.

The Final Weapons are now made by the Weaponsmith guy who originally was supposed to give you the Final Gospel Limit Break, and tell you where to go to get the Keystone Materia. You need 2 Weapons and one of the new Key Items (X-ATM Core, LuvLuvG, and so on). The Weaponsmith guy will tell you which weapons and Key Item you need in order to make each Final Weapon.

EDIT: whoops. Sega Chief beat me to answering your question as I was typing it lol

Eh no I'm not on final version, I just noticed it was uploaded two days ago, I'm on the version before that (the one uploaded in September).
Just got the final weapons now.
Gotta say I'm disappointed with Missing Score having only 4 slots? Is this really intended? Because man the weapon sucks, it feels like a downgrade from the Max Ray. I know that the vanilla Missing Score was the strongest final weapon by a mile (but that was because materias could store a lot more AP than they can in NT, especially KOTOR), but geez, this is an overnerf, please reconsider, and if the AP-STR is too strong, then maybe just add a different special effect (like an added effect to attacks and 255% hit chance or something else).
Compared it to Tifa's Premium Heart, that one has 8 slots and hits harder without any investment at all.
Red XIII and Cid's final weapons also appears to be very bad, at least compared to other characters.

Actually Cid's final weapon is absurdly good. Slap on several mastered Counter materias and watch him heal back all the damage he took through nonstop countering. And this only gets nuttier when you throw on the right Elemental Materia for the boss you're about to fight.

Hello,
Im about to start this mod and really looking forward to it. Just have 2 quick questions.

1)Is there a general consensus on how to spec each character that will utilize their best traits/abilities ?

2) I do not have the 7th haven mod (the language use is too complicated for me since Im not computer savy), is there a way to add some type of texture mod to make everything look nicer/better while still keeping the NT Mod working perfectly?

1)Is there a general consensus on how to spec each character that will utilize their best traits/abilities ?

Idk about the "general consensus", but in my opinion, this is what roles I think each character best excels at

Cloud: Main Character Syndrome means he has to be flexible to fill whatever role you need. I suggest you decide early on what you want him to do and stick with it. His Personal Skill is okay, but not much to say about it.

Barret: He has high Vitality & good Spirit, making him a solid basic tank. His Magic is abysmal, so don't expect much from there. Not much to say about his Personal Skill either. What row you leave him in depends on if you want him hitting things or taking hits. 6th best choice for a tank, simply due to the fact that he has little to offer beyond taking hits.

Tifa: Her high Dexterity and high strength make her a great choice for a physical attacker, though she can also play Tank very well if you invest in her to be one. Great for Cover Countering, especially since her Grit ability lets her stick around a bit longer if your healer is tied up. I'd rank her as the 2nd Best physical attacker, and 5th best choice for a tank.

Aerith: Obviously she's the best Mage, no questions asked. However, her Personal Skill, Geo Guard, gives her a unique tanking capability that can't be replicated. Absorbing almost all elements in the game just by defending, Aerith's got incredible bulk potential (especially since she doesn't need to sacrifice stats for an Elemental Materia). If there were a Draw Attacks Materia to increase aggro towards her, she'd easily be the the best tank of the gang. Her Limit Breaks being geared towards support also help her in favor of playing the Tank/Support role. As it stands, she's the 2nd best tank, and best Mage.

Red: Hoo boy! Red is amazing. He can play Tank, Physical Offense, Mage, or Hybrid Offense with ease! His personal skill is perfect for boss battles, and his Limit Breaks (aside from Cosmo Memory) service his various builds beautifully! His Lv.1 Limit Break set for Tank Role with strong HP recovery in Sled Fang and "Hastega" via Lunatic High. His Lv.2 Limit Break set for a Mage/Hybrid Build with Blood Fang giving HP & MP Recovery, and Stardust Ray scaling off his magic (though it needs to be buffed). His Lv.3 Limit set for a Physical/Hybrid Build with Howling Moon providing Berserk & Haste to wipe the floor with random battles, and Earth Rave for massive damage. Pick what you want him to do and stick with it (preferably choose what Cloud isn't doing already for him). Tied with Tifa as 2nd best attacker, 2nd best Mage, 4th best tank, and the best Hybrid fighter.

Yuffie: Idk to be honest. her current personal skill doesn't work (and raw Evade isn't very good in FF7 anyway), and her Conformer is really the only noteworthy thing about her in my opinion. I guess she could be your speedy mage, if Aerith is too slow for your tastes (or if you let Aerith stay dead after Disc 1). No notable rankings since, again, I never used her.

Cait Sith: He's a good candidate for a Support Tank since he has Auto MP Regen, solid bulk, high luck, and an MP Restoring weapon. He can also be a Crit-Abusing Bruiser with Strength investment and high luck. Cait is the 3rd best tank, in my opinion, thanks to his high luck.

Vincent: I can't say much about him since I only used him a couple times. I give him the Shinra Turk bonus every Rank Up so he can fill whatever gaps there are in the team whenever I use him. Even without specialization, he performed very well. Tbh I never noticed his Personal Skill go off, so not much to say about it. Well Rounded, so always a good choice for an attacking role.

Cid: Strength, Vitality, Spirit, and lots and lots of Luck. Cid has the Highest Luck, and his Ultimate Weapon has a built in Drain effect. Cid can easily get over 200 Luck for a flat 50% chance to avoid damage thanks to the Lucky Evade mechanic (Luck/4), and with 2-3 Counter Materia on him, he'll easily recover any damage he takes by countering like crazy while using the Venus Gospel. Solid Bulk, Venus Gospel, and Crazy high Luck make Cid the best tank in the game (unless a Draw Attack materia is made, which would let Aerith dethrone Cid as Best Tank). Second Wind takes a long time to charge, so it rarely saw usage.

Can someone help me please?
I've used New Threat before and it's worked perfectly. This time I want to use the vanilla combat version, as I want the revised script and events, but with the vanilla gameplay. I downloaded the IRO and imported it using 7th heaven, but it doesn't work. It doesn't even do anything when I click on 'open readme'.
Is there something I've done wrong?

It should just be a case of importing it then activating it, while making sure that the regular NT IRO is deactivated; when you say it doesn't work, do you mean it breaks in 7h or it isn't applying changes once activated?

Thanks for the info PokeFaize! Definitely helps!

Another question, my friend tells me there used to be a readme file on the launcher that went over Area changes. As in the changes made in most of the areas in NT. That way it gave him something to check to make sure nothing is missed. I think I saw the readme when I downloaded yesterday but the Area Changes section was very limited. Did something change and some info got deleted or moved? Thanks!

Thanks for the response.

I imported it then activated it, while the regular mod is deactivated. I had vanilla combat version activated, but no changes were applied. I ended up using the installer instead, and now I think it's working the way it's supposed to, but I'm confused about a couple of things. I still get tutorials for innate abilities, even though it seems like they don't apply anymore, enemies and bosses are back to their original tactics, but are still visually redesigned, there's still a ??? on the save point for later when you get access to Mr. Smiley, so I'm assuming that is still in the game, and character stats are different, in a way that doesn't line up with either vanilla or NT. For example, Cloud starts with 0 spirit and luck, and has much higher vitality than Barret. I have no other gameplay altering mods activated.

Are these things normal for the vanilla combat variant? If so, is there any way I can just have the revised script, extra scenes (such as Cloud saying 'my job?' in the back of the train after the first bombing mission), the party members hanging around in the towns, and the improved character sprites, with no edits to anything combat or stat related?

The vanilla version was done fast, so it's still got references to some NT features that aren't active with a default scene/kernel like the innates. It'll make reference to them, but like you say they aren't active. I also forgot to put the default model colours in but the enemies should all be behaving

The SP system can be used as this is an flevel thing, but characters have their own stat growths so the system can be safely ignored if you only want to use those (and Sources can be acquired from the vanilla enemies). It was left active because it'd be a pain to deactivate it across all save points.

The stats themselves being different is likely being caused by Materia. If an installer has been used in the past, then it's maybe applied the .exe changes that go with NT. If you can, replace them with default .exes and this should also return Materia modifications back to normal.

Hello, just repeating my question so it does not get missed.

In the past NT Versions, there was a change log document that went into details of Area changes of the game (changes in Midgar, Kalm, Junon, etc.) however it dont see it on the 1.5 patch. Is it possible to link that readme file again? Thank you for your time!

I think it's in the download folder itself; but a quick and dirty readme with more up to date information was put together on the front page of this thread as a pastebin.

Also is Ark Dragon no longer in Mythril Mines? I been here for an hour and it does not spawn :(

I think he only spawns in certain fields in Mythril Mines; try the screen where Long Range is found in default game. It definitely appears there.

So the Steam version has a music error during the sequence where Cloud regains his memories at Mideel. Right when Cloud throws Sephiroth into the Lifestream, it’s supposed to continue the world map theme. But it starts playing the standard reactor theme instead. Is there any way to fix this using mods or something?

I think I read somewhere that there are hidden monsters in some areas? Name was Ziegfried? Just asking if those monsters are still implemented and if there is a section that tells us where they are? Thank you!

Yeah could probably do that.

Instead of a mystery ninja encounter, you'll run into ziggy in the world map forests. If you find him/beat him you get a Materia; if you don't, then you can find this Materia in the rolling rock room of the Temple of the Ancients.

Awesome I just found him too! Are we only able to encounter him once or multiple times? Also do you have a list of other secret monsters found like this? I would hate to miss an encounter just because I was not aware. Thank you!!

It's a one-off encounter. Don't think there's any other missable secret enemies.

Anyone else tried speedrunning this in Arrange mode?

A while back I started a segmented run to see if it's even possible, and it's brutal, but might actually be doable even in a single segment. Some bosses are insane though, and might require resets for better rng or strategic grinding for more levels and rank-ups. I've managed to make it to the very end in 13:30sh time, but the very final fight seems problematic.

Now, I actually never finished my first playthrough after growing bored of the endgame content and my randomized character builds, so I'm not sure how it is supposed to play out, and I can't find any mention of this fight online.

Spoiler: show
Cloud vs. Sephiroth and Jenova. At first I thought the goal was just to survive and the fight would end if I get my Omnislash off. But I was surprised that's not the case. They seem to do % based damage, and I'm forced to Full-Cure every turn and then Elixir up when out of MP. They seem too tanky to kill, Omnislash hitting Sephiroth for alot of 0s and Jenova for about 300 per hit.(Cloud is built as tanky magic support) Pearl damages Jenova for a good 6,5k, so I tried using my only Gospel Spark on my first turn to gain Peerless in hope to finish off Jenova, but it wasn't enough(no Quadra magic), and they murder me before I can heal.


Am I missing something? Under-leveled(lvl.75, rank 3 or 4, not quite sure) and geared? How's this fight supposed to be won?

Not sure if its a known bug or not but the Speed Square in Gold Saucer has the battle type music, not the gold saucer music. Even after escaping from Corel Prison.
