Sega Chief,

I thanked you last night on Death's stream. Just wanted to give you a full run down now that I've completed the game.

It's brilliant - I managed to kill Nemesis, Omega, Ruby, Emerald, that chocobo who gives you Pandora's box. A lot of the time I had to play smart as brute forcing doesn't work.

I wish I could put this on my phone on my PS emulator (I'd never play the original again if that happened).

The Dark Cave was a fantastic addition.

Is there anywhere I can donate since I've enjoyed your hard work so much it seems only fair that I give you something for your amazing project.

Sorry for gushing.

Yeah I have all mods bar the ones that change the look of the bookcases in Shinra HQ ... It is the only part that causes the issue as well, everything else is fine.

Alright well for now I will wait till I get to the Crater to lvl up abit quicker lol.

Also did you put those bug things back to 0 exp in the mideel area ??

Some Mideel enemies were given a script to set exp to 0 for early parts of the game cause it was possible to power-level super fast off them, except I then changed the way character level is factored in damage formulas (through their AI, so this activates in battle) which sets off the exp 0 script.

Thanks for the kind words, I'm glad you enjoyed it. There's things in the mod I'm not happy with, dark cave being one, but I'm going to do a full overhaul of the mod at some point to iron out the problems. Donations can be made through a link on the first page of this thread but if you change your mind, no worries.

Thanks again for your hard work. Recommended it to a couple of my friends too.

Is Tifa more buxom in the mod than the original or is it my imagination?

Hello !
About Tifa, is there any way to get only "hit"on her limit ? I know there is a cheat mod for getting only "yeah!" but this make her over mega uber powered lol
With only "hit" we could get a really balanced and not stressfully limit break with her, just a question, as every one said this mod is perfect no doubt on it ^^

I don't know where to post the next question so i will do there, i see that you're working on a ff8 nt mod, do you know when you will launch it? I'm so hype to play at it, you've got nice ideas for this (i particulary enjoy the junctions and the full draw option you input in), hope we will have a challenge and balanced game such as ff7 nt :D

Adjusted FF7 NT files with no miss reels:

FF8 NT is coming along, still no real idea when it'll be finished though; can run into issues at any time with it, like the new spells not being part of the sort for instance (which means they get lost s:)

I tried your "adjusted file", it works there are no "miss", but i still have "yeah", i was asking to have one with no "miss" and no "yeah", only "hit" in her jackpot, if you can patch an other one with thoose config it would be great (i hope i don t ask so much to you...)

Ok so we have to wait until you resolved thoose issues on ff8, take your time, i'm not the only one who will wait for it as long as it need because we know that you can do a ff8 such great as your ff7 nt :p

her reviving or not is based on the option you chose prior to the fight. I believe you want to pick the grey option for her to live.

why Cloud's weapons were so sharply nerfed ?, In addition to its innate ability is a little useless because it activates very late and only serves in boss fights, It should be changed by something like:

Mako energy

The damage of Cloud increases the less ps you get ...

Or something like that but Cloud needs a buff ... His weapons above all, Why seriously, Seeing the cloud weapons with Black chocobo until Butterfly edge has less damage than the Buster sword  :-\, On the other hand is the mod good, Pretty complicated the truth  :-P

Alot of weapons in New Threat give actual stats instead of just having high attack values. This tunes the damage down so you dont hit the cap early but still makes the characters very strong. If you think Cloud is weak because of his weapons then you either chose the wrong stat upgrades for the weapon you are using, or you just dont quite grasp the value of extra stats like + 10 spirit or dex.
So it may seem like cloud got nerfed, but actually hes been buffed pretty nicely. Hes the 3rd best character in the mod.

Hi, I would like to say that I like the addition of updated models in this mod. Barrett, Cloud, Tifa and Aerith's field models have some nice new features. However one thing that bothered me is the NPC's models, as said in the notes, you got rid of the gaping "O" mouths that they all have, which I am pleased about because they just looked out right creepy and stupid with those mouths. However, you also removed the mouths from the main characters, which I understand that maybe you're trying to give them the original retro Playstation look by simply giving them a blank mouth texture, but I honestly think you should just give them their mouths back since they had regular ones in comparison to the NPCs.

Also, while I was looking through the forums on the case of the NPC's mouths, I came across this thread: http://forums.qhimm.com/index.php?topic=14425.0 which contained a post from you back in 2013. You posted three different links, one that simply removes all NPCs mouths, one that removes all mouths from all characters including the main ones (which gives out the same look the models have in this mod), and one that simply gives the NPCs the same kind of mouths that all the main characters have.
This might just be personal preference, but I think you should have gone with the option of just giving the NPCs the same kind of mouths as the main character's field models have.
I know you may have other projects in the works, but if you ever plan to update this, do you think in the future you could provide an optional file that will give the main characters their mouths back and will also give the NPCs the same kind of mouths as them? Like I said, I understand that your maybe trying to recreate the original retro look of the PS1 release, but personally I think the models would look better if they just had the same kind of mouths as the main characters in a vanilla game. It'll make them look more unique if you ask me, instead of just having straight out blank mouths.

Thank you for taking the time to read this.

hi guys, I just have a question.
I ended the v1.54, but I found no Enemy skill materia.
Is that normal? Did I miss it or it doesn't exist?

Thanks for the inconvenience of answering  :lol:, The truth is that at the beginning Cloud was strong because I started climbing levels, but now that I'm on the 65th floor of Shinra HQ (First time) I have noticed that its damage is minor despite it has 2 levels more than the others, including magic attack, a doubt, in which turn is the skill activated? and what is the best weapon for normal attacks in early game for Cloud?

And what do you mean with: "then you either choose the wrong stat upgrades for the weapon you are using" ?

Those were my first mods. I went with the psx-style because I felt it was a better fit for the scenes, as the models, animations, etc. rely a lot on impressionism (as in, your brain fills in the missing details based on context).

I could add a 7H option where it restores the texture, and a mini-installer that patches an NT char.lgp with the textures. I think I still have the files here.

hi guys, I just have a question.
I ended the v1.54, but I found no Enemy skill materia.
Is that normal? Did I miss it or it doesn't exist?

There are two potential causes, and both are pretty bad:
1. Did you start from a new game or from the Reactor 1 save point? Some players start from that save to skip the opening FMV but this means the intended initial state for all the characters, etc. isn't set so you end up with Red XIII joining without Enemy Skill equipped.

2. If playing through 7H version, it hasn't been set up properly and so the kernel isn't getting patched by the program. This means something was missed during installation, like the Game Conversion.

Thanks for the inconvenience of answering  :lol:, The truth is that at the beginning Cloud was strong because I started climbing levels, but now that I'm on the 65th floor of Shinra HQ (First time) I have noticed that its damage is minor despite it has 2 levels more than the others, including magic attack, a doubt, in which turn is the skill activated? and what is the best weapon for normal attacks in early game for Cloud?

I think in the current build, whenever a Limit Break is used Cloud gets a boost to Strength and Magic; this wears off after a while and can then be triggered again by another Limit Break.

When you leave Midgar, you'll start to pick up additional weapons. The idea was to balance the early-game weapons against each other, and then phase them out with direct upgrades as you progress further into the game.

These weapons are also designed to compliment the stats you decide to boost for the characters, a feature that is unlocked after clearing the Mythril Mines.
Buster Sword: high base attack, less materia slots
Mythril Saber: lower attack, but boosts Magic
Hardedge: Boosts defence
Force Stealer: Drains HP as damage

When you reach Cosmo Canyon, the Buster Sword becomes redundant as Butterfly Edge gives slightly higher attack while also giving a Dexterity boost and more materia slots.

Sounds good to me, as long as you release an option to restore the mouths and gives the npcs "normal looking" mouths (the same as the main characters), then I'll be happy with that. Thanks :)

Gonna have to  disagree with you. He's totally outclassed by cid/yuffie/barret. And I'd say Tifa too, just because what she brings to the party is pretty ludicrous.
Anyone who can backline with no damage penalty is instantly more valuable than anyone who can't -50% damage >>>>>>
