I'll let other more knowledgeable people help with the save file issue, but as far as the button mapping, what type of controller are you using and are using Steam for mapping or another program like DS4Windows? Does it just not respond when trying to map things in-game to the shoulder buttons?

I'm personally using DS4Windows instead of Steam with my PS4 controller, as it's the only way I was personally able to get both the Dpad and left stick to both work. I've never been able to get it to recognize L2/R2 buttons inputs on any controller I've tried. It will recognize L3/R3 (pressing the left or right control stick) so I just remapped those to L2 and R2 in DS4.

I'm using an Xbox 360 controller through USB and have never had to do any button mapping on Steam games, it works (or rather, worked) natively.  In game, I actually can't map any buttons on the controller, the game only provides options for keyboard mapping.  Since shoulder buttons aren't used that much in this game, maybe I'll just settle for keyboard usage.  Thanks for replying!

Thanks for the lengthy reply.  I moved the installation to my boot drive, cleared things with Bitdefender and I can save!!  There was no need to use the original exe file, I used the patched version and all seems to be well.  Thanks again for your help!

No worries, glad it's cleared up.

I personally use keyboard due to how messed up the keybinding can be for this game. The original port was in 1998 before analogs were an industry standard (or if they existed at all) so it tends to treat controllers erratically. A WASD - HJKL set up tends to work well for D-Pad and the Action buttons. Shoulders can be a bit awkward; I use IO for L1 and R1 as they're right above the action buttons and more commonly used than L2 R2.

I've added the mod order to the FFVII 1.5 NT Documentation so the answer to mods used with NT will be available. The document can be found on page 1 for those of you curious.

As a reminder, should you see anything that is incorrect or you have some data you can contribute, use the comment feature in the document. Also, my apologies for the lack of progress on the document, work and family has had me tied up. Once that dies down, I'll get back to it!

Spoiler: show

The following are incompatible:
-) Beacause (changes fields)
-) Jessie Mod (unless you use the patched one I've linked on first page of this thread)
-) Any other gameplay-type mod (tweaks and cheats may be OK)

It's best to stick to graphical-only mods when using NT. Anything that changes text is out because it all lives in the same files as the field event scripts.

Mod load order is done by type:
Miscellaneous - Dynamic Cloud Weapons
Miscellaneous - Jessie Mod
Miscellaneous - Team Avalanche Fields
Battle Models - Weapons
Field Models - Objects
Animations
Battle Models - Characters
Battle Models - Enemies
Battle Textures
Field Models - Main Characters
Field Models - Non-Player Characters
Field Textures - Omzy/satsuki/yarLson
Gameplay - Difficulty and Story
Gameplay - Tweaks and Cheats
Media - Movies
Media - Music and Sound
Menu - Avatars and Backdrops
Minigames - Chocobo Race
Minigames - Coaster
Minigames - Fort Condor
Minigames - Motorbike Chase
Minigames - Wonder Square
Spell Textures
The Reunion - Beacause and Menu Overhaul
World Models - Characters
World Models - Enemies
World Models - Vehicles
World Textures

If you still get wrong encounters even with just NT on its own, then 7H isn't installed correctly. Uninstall the game and rund game converter to uninstall its registry changes and start fresh, make sure you follow the 7h tutorial as exactly as you can and install the game into non-system drives. When all else fails, NT can be direct-patched using its main installer if 7h proves to be a no-go.

PSX version has limitations that make a direct port unfeasible. Better thing to do would be to just make a new mod with parts of NT and try to take advantage of some things that PSX offers like being able to use up to 9 unique discs of data (each one having its own scene.bin + kernel.bin + flevel).

hi:

First of all i am currently playing this mode and....oh boy its awesome, thanks for the mod.

buuuuuuuuuuuuut i think i run into a issue here so let me explain:

i was playing in disc 3 going down the north crater and i took the left up path, all fine and working and in the final part of the path there is a boss, as should be aparently.

i defeat the thing and continue north crater, then cloud recive a call from the highwind that you should try the side quest stuff, so i went back and found another boss.

so a this part i start to think "oh maybe the other path have a boss as well".

i went back and took the right path and here is the issue, at the end to the path there is nothing, no boss.

this means that i cant get limited moon because a dont have the moon....pearl...stone...thingy.

i look in youtube and it should be at the end of the skeleton path but nothing is there in my save.

i dont know if it is because i trigger something when i arrived at the center that make the boss dissapear or something.

Also the guy in the highwind doesnt fix this because it is not a side quest :/.

Ok, so it sounds like there's another thing deactivating that boss besides the inaccessible chest on the right-path (which can be accessed by way of a boundary-break). Send me your save file and I'll reactivate the variable, otherwise you can use a save editor to add the item in if you want to do it that way. The item in question will be called a Combat Diary in the editor. Make sure to have the FF7 Launcher open when making the edit, and save your game once when you load in; FF7 Steam has a check that activates whenever the Launcher is started to delete any save files that were edited/came from another PC.

Hey! Great mod! Loving the fresh experience.

Quick replicable bug:

Using hades on Platinum battle arena boss crashes the game every time. When it got toaded I felt naughty and excited at the same time :3 I was quickly punished for this sin. (cuz hades, lol?)

Going through arranged mode and trying out the randomiser for my level bonuses. There seems to be some kind of bug that while going through the menus, it takes away what kind of sources you're supposed to get. I was upgrading Cloud and all his options were 0-1-2 sources each stat, but I never got more than 5. Then I chose to upgrade RedXIII and his options were proper 0-5-10-15 sources each stat, but I went to check RedXIII's stats in the menu and when I went back to pick my upgrade they all changed to 0-1-2 sources, then I went back to the menu as if to check my stats again, and when I went back to the upgrade menu, all the options were 0 sources each.

It might be because of Frog status; do you have other mods on? It's happened a few times in the past but I always forget which mod it was.

Yeah they go weird when the check stats option is used; I'll sort it in the update.

Yeah, I have basically all of the 7th heaven mods on with 1.5 installed over / instead of the built in 'gameplay - difficulty and story' mod. I managed to beat it without hades in the end. Tho I thought i had found the easy hack :P tho I guess I enjoyed it more without cheesing it :D (Great designs and fights btw). The game didn't freeze-freeze, but rather the camera locked in a certain position and no attacks initiated and it froze that way.

 probably been asked this before, but just out of interest, which fight was intended to be the hardest out of all the extras? :P I just realized that i've seen a certain boss fight on youtube from another game and haven't encountered it yet and a shiver just went down my spine...

Hello, first ever post on here.

I'm having issue playing the NT mod. It keeps crashing and giving error popup as soon as I get into the first fight. I know something isn't right as before that fight, if you go into the menu, cloud is already dead and I have a full item menu of potions (says 0 next to them).

I'm not sure what i'm doing wrong.It isn't the first mod i've done or anything so I do semi know what i'm doing. just this one I can't seem to get right.

Thanks anyway if someone sees this.

I don't really know about the hardest one, I guess it'd be the Platinum Match purely because it's quite brute-force; not much attack variation, sky-high stats, etc.

That sounds very unusual, especially the 0 item thing + Cloud being KO'd.

First off, if it has to be either the vanilla 1998 PC version, the 2012 Square-Enix version (which was discontinued by Square in favour of the Steam version), or the Steam version itself. If you've gotten hold of a 1998 version that has hacks pre-applied to it, like the Ultimania Edition or similar bootlegged copy, then there will be technical problems (though usually it's a case of not starting at all rather than what you describe).

If you have 7h set-up, then there's likely something very wrong there in the way it's been set up so I would uninstall everything and go through the tutorial steps again. If it's the 2.0 7h beta then might be worth checking in there as I don't know much about it issues-wise yet.

One thing I would do as well; set up the game without mods and see if it runs as expected. If so, then continue on with trying to get NT running on it.

hey thanks for reply.

It is the steam version - I have previously used other mods on it (I do uninstall everything before doing another mod) and had no issues.

It works fine before installing the mod too.

It isnt the 7h setup. just normal.

Could it be, although I have uninstalled all previous mods and the game itself before re-installing - the game still have previous saves on it from the mods? even though i'm not using those saves and planned to just save over them? does that affect it? I have no idea how to completely delete all save data from previous games on steam, i've never had to before when doing different mods.

Also something else that is very slightly different from the 'readme' instructions - it does say to use the steam/steamapps/common/ff7/data folder to do the patch, well on mine, the data folder doesn't work for it, but the ff7 folder does (the one before the data folder) - I have no idea if that mades a difference. the data folder just says it doesn't have the right things to patch so I patch from the ff7.

The Steam version always runs its scene.bin (enemy data) and kernel.bin (character data) from the FF7/Data/Lang-en folder whereas the 1998 PC version (and a 7h game conversion) uses ff7/data/battle and ff7/data/kernel. Even if 7h was installed and a Game Converter process ran over it, you can still use the Steam version as-is by running ff7_en.exe (or through the Steam launcher). The NT installer patches both sets of files however, 1998 and Steam, to cover both versions.

Save files don't affect the starting state of the game; you can actually load saves made from other mods/vanilla into NT (and vise-versa) and they'll mostly work fine; maybe a visual glitch on EXP gauges that will correct itself on the next level up. Nothing so drastic that it would impact a New Game. Keep your save files, or at the very least just move them elsewhere and don't delete them. Remember also that Steam keeps its save files in a separate place to the regular 1998 game; it's in:

D:\UserName\Documents\Square Enix\FINAL FANTASY VII Steam\user_#####.

New Game itself initialises from the kernel.bin (that's where Cloud's starting state + starting inventory are), so it sounds like that's where the point of failure is. Perhaps the installer wasn't able to patch the kernel properly due to a file security issue or similar. Usually that would mean it wouldn't be able to patch it at all, but can't rule it out considering that it sounds like the kernel has been corrupted in some way.

The installer says Data folder but it's out of date, the intended folder is the FF7 folder as it now targets both the ff7.exe and ff7_en.exe for changes as well. That's another possibility, perhaps the .exe patch is stopping the game from doing read/writes on the kernel correctly (a user had an issue where they couldn't save the game for instance due to this). My advice is to right-click into the installer's properties, check that it is unblocked, and then run as admin or to have the FF7 game installed in a non-systems folder outside of Program Folders (Steam allows for games to be installed in multiple locations). Then after install, do the same with both .exe files; right-click into their properties and make sure they're unblocked (don't need to run these as admin, it tends to make the game work strangely).

Although if you have 7h installed, then remember that NT has an IRO as well. That's available from front page of this thread. Assuming the 7h install is correct, I'd recommend using that instead as the installer is more for non-7H installations as it hard overwrites files.

Thanks, sadly it just isn't working for me for some reason. I'm stumped. Just get the 'unknown exception occured' message  :(

They are def unblocked (doesn't even have the little message to say unblock at the bottom like on other things oddly)

sad. I really wanted to play this. loved watching 4-8 play this couple years ago.

Should be in the cat house in Wutai (if the Yuffie Materia sidequest was done). There's some stairs in the back that you can climb by pushing the Confirm button (may need to mash it a bit). There'll be a chest up there with it inside.

All right, do the following:

1) Uninstall then reinstall the Steam game.

2) Download this:
http://www.mediafire.com/file/c57at39b54geauy/Direct_Patch.zip/file

3) Unzip the folder and remove the .EXE files from it (the mod can run with default .exes). Then merge the folder contents with your data folder, confirming overwrite when prompted. Should be scene.bin, kernel.bin, flevel.lgp, battle.lgp, and char.lgp.

4) Try the game and see if it it's resolved.

http://www.mediafire.com/file/c57at39b54geauy/Direct_Patch.zip/file

3) Unzip the folder and remove the .EXE files from it (the mod can run with default .exes). Then merge the folder contents with your data folder, confirming overwrite when prompted. Should be scene.bin, kernel.bin, flevel.lgp, battle.lgp, and char.lgp.

4) Try the game and see if it it's resolved.

nope. game works but mod isn't there. The flevel.lgp, battle lgp, char.lgp isn't in that folder. just scene.bin kernel.bin and kernal2.bin

Oh wrong file; probably should have known from the size of it.

It is ok now :), turns out all I needed to do was uninstall steam all together then re-install steam, then it worked.

Really odd but oh well. Works fine now :)

thank you

Hello!

Just started the mod. Really enjoying it.

A question: is it possible to play with the new gameplay but without the revised script and/or Cloud's new character model color?

Thanks!

Text is baked into the field's event script, so unfortunately it would be a fairly large undertaking to put it back as it was. As for the character model, if you get Luksy's ULGP tool and unpack the char.lgp of NT and a default .lgp, then transfer all the aaaa files down to the first 3 anim files (this is all of cloud's model parts).

Were the Arrange Mode selection at the start of a New Game and Barret music options taken out?
