Can custom models be used straight from reunion? Say if i delete all the models from the mod folder just to use the ones that were installed in my default reunion folder before (i'd especially want them to use for 60 fps battles), will there be no issues?

also, is there any incompatibilities or bugs involved with reunion? I have installed mods with models, fields and world map textures, as well as battle textures too, will those be conflicting with New Threat?

I have a general idea which folders to delete, but then, if doesn't cause any issues, which folders i'd have to delete in order to have field and battle models looking the same as they did in Reunion, without New Threat installed?

There should be a R06 version for this mod on the front of this thread. You can drop in your battle models, etc. and overwrite without issue as far as I know.

Heya, another Reunion related question. When using the Reunion version, are the vanilla parts of the story script yours or DLPBs? I imagine probably yours but I wanted to check and make sure.

The Reunion version of NT is all NT text, the Beacause part isn't compatible with NT.

Yeah we all took the basic NT option through Qhimm "gameplay Catalog" mod. I desactivated this one to activate only the new one provided by your links.

and i can confirm already Yuffie's dodge is working quite well now.

As for the cave dialog (yes it was these particular lines) too bad i can't confirm because i erased on my save and can't test it anymore. May be some of my friends still have a save around that part i will ask them.

Thanks for all this. Cheers !

No worries.

So, in short, basically NT's R06 version models (field and battle) are not important and can be replaced/deleted without fear of wrecking anything, correct?

I ask that because, for example, say if there's some new models added that could be important for the story or for battles that will just ruin the scene if the default ones are used. But basically, what i am trying to do, is to have none of models NT has, because my field and battles models are already moded, which i want to use effectively with NT.

Sorry if the question seems a bit obvious, just want to make sure everything works :D

Edit: Basically, what i did is take all the models from NT in Direct folder, and merge them with (Model_overhaul) base models of Reunion without replacing them so it would have also the files that were only present in NT, and afterwards deleting them from Direct folder, so NT would be accessing them from Reunion files, not it's own. I'll see if it works this way so i can have Kaldarasha's models working with NT this way, hopefully.

Ok great, thanks for the clarification. Judging from earlier posts I'll probably wait until 2.0 comes out to give this a try, but I'm excited for it!

Can you please remove any script that removes materia and equipment from temporary member lost? Last time I lost half my materias in the Dark Cave due to capacity cap, this time I lost most my materia in Northern Crater after the split. It's really frustrating to lose hours of progress and grinding like this. I believe in the beginning there was a part that materias and accessories are forced to be taken off too, but I wasn't at the cap so I didn't lose anything. Still kind of annoy to go back and reslot everything when the member is only missing for like 10 mins.

NT adds new enemy models past the default ones (SN and onwards to XC or so). Some new field models were added but far fewer. Anything that was default can be replaced. The approach you've used should be fine.

Cool, it won't be long.

First of all thanks so much for what you're doing here. Just blasted through the original game (after being tantalized by the remake) and soon after discovered these forums and what looks like a ridiculous amount of work put in by this community. I've been playing your mod over Reunion and have been loving all the changes.

I've only had a couple of issues, and it seems related to the EXE. Hi-potions only restore 500 from the menu (but not regular potions??) and the Limit breaks seem to be vanilla. Maybe I'm being silly here but do I need to run your patcher as well as dropping the files into Reunion's custom folder? Or are the EXE changes not going to be available to me on Reunion (if I'm not mistaken Reunion patches the EXE as well?).

Still new to all this, so my apologies if I'm missing something obvious here. (:

No, it'll just be some lines missing from the hext file. I think I noticed that hi-potion was missing from the 2.0 Reunion hext a while back, I guess it must be missing from the 1.5 Reunion hext as well. I'll check it over and add stuff if it's missing.

Edit: R06 updated and the Installer/IRO updated with adjustment for the Temple of the Ancients text boxes in clock room.

Hey, is MP Absorb anywhere in New Threat 1.5, and if so, where? The documentation lists it as still existing, without a location, though that could be outdated. I haven't seen it yet and I'm at the Submarine minigame, and a friend of mine who's in the end-game hasn't seen it either. Thanks.

It's in the cat house of Wutai, the building that's next to Yuffie's House. At the back is a stair-well you can climb by hitting confirm once the Wutai sidequest is done. If it isn't done, then a cat sits in front of it to obstruct it.

Sega - for the 7H IRO subscription link - it shows a 2013 release date once it installs. Therefore, I can't tell if it knows when there's an update available.

Hi, just wanted to say thank you for all your hard work. I was playing through the vanilla version of the mod, and when doing the elevator fight in Shinra Headquarters, the arena was where you would fight Proud Clod and instead of Hundred Gunner, the fight went straight to Heli Gunner instead.
Following that, the game played normally up until the end of the motorcycle minigame and crashes upon trying to start the boss fight.

Could do, I guess. I'd target the battle themes they currently use though for the swap to avoid the 'comical.ogg' issue.

When I set it up, I thought release date was when the mod was originally made. I'll change it to the current date so that it reports an update is available from now on.

It sounds like the vanilla version is running on Arrange Mode for some reason. Are you using the IRO from the Qhimm Gameplay catalog or my catalog? Or is it the installer?

I believe it's the one from your catalog, it's the one the front page of this thread that got updated after Barachiel's post. I played through the regular version of the mod on normal difficulty before starting this one, and while the combat is  the same as original FF7, it does have New Threat scripts on the save points.

As a hardcore FF7 fan, let me start by saying that I love this. I pretty much know the location of every single item (steal/morph included) by heart, but after FF7 Remake I wanted to replay the original. New threat gives me a new way to look at the game, and I thank you. And yes, I realise that thanks doesn't buy dinner, so you'll have some donations coming to back it up.

Some minor bugs to report:
- Game softlocks after looking at the TV in the Shinra bldg shop on the 2nd floor
- Game softlocks after finishing a chocobo battle when the chocobo escapes

Spoiler: show
I was a bit dismayed that you took away the weapon steal from Eligor, but I'll learn to live with it  :-P

OK, I'll go back in and check. The variable that handles it didn't seem to be getting toggled anywhere so I'll need to find out what's happening.

It's been re-added for 2.0, Hell House will have something as well.

I'll check these softlocks, seem to be new.

Hey SC! Sorry to be a bother, but I have NT set to auto-update from your catalog, but it doesn't seem to have downloaded the last couple of updates (such as the clock room fix). I'm unable to tell if it's an issue with the catalog, 7H, or something on my end. Any ideas would be appreciated!

It was because I wasn't changing the date on it, I'll be doing that from now on.

Hi, I wanted to keep an update as I continued on in the game. I got to Junon and started up the boss fight with Bottomswell, and instead of the regular boss fight it took me to the Shinra building against 3 Sawbacks. The game continued normally past that.

Yeah, what's happening is that the flevel has a series of arrange mode flag checks to change some of the boss fights out for an alternate. But because the scene.bin is a default one, it's loading an encounter that isn't a boss. This'll also happen for Materia Keeper and Demons Gate, maybe some others.

Thanks to S.K. for the donation.

Hi,

First time playing this mod, really loved it and enjoyed the journey.
But I just ran into a bug where I'm stuck in the dark cave's sewers.
I jump down here and all I see is a car which blocked my way, is there anyway I can get out of here?

Thanks.

I recently changed the set-up to not remove characters from the PHS but to lock them instead in order to avoid an issue where players were losing Materia through the automatica unequip (if there's no space, the Materia is lost). However, some of the scripts in there used 'character exists' as the check which meant they started to fail. I've made an adjustment and uploaded patches for all version.

You unlock Lv2 and Lv3 by killing enemies; the 2nd Limit on each Limit Level is unlocked through uses.

As an example:
To get Barret's 1-2 Limit Mindblow, you need to use Big Shot 9 times.
To get Barret's 2-1 Limit Grenade Bomb, you need him to kill 60 enemies.
To get Barret's 3-1 Limit Satellite Beam, he needs 110 kills (this is total kills, so he only needs 50 kills after getting Grenade Bomb to get Satellite Beam).

***
Patch Info 24th May 2020

So a few things;
*) Dark Cave and the North Crater had some alterations made to avoid the loss of Materia when characters are set to unavailable (a full Materia unequip is performed, but if there is no space for the unequipped Materia to be stored then it is lost). So instead, I've got them set to locked in PHS.

Side note, when grinding Materia in the North Crater be mindful of your remaining space. When creating Materia through division, it will either overwrite an old Materia (prioritising low-end Materia like Fire, Ice, etc.) or throw away the new-born Materia. Try to keep around 10 or so free spaces in your Materia inventory to be safe, selling/trashing Materia you don't necessarily need.

*) Vanilla Combat IRO: I removed all references to arrange mode battles. Unsure how this variable was getting flipped on without any reference to it in the script but that should sort it out.
*) Reunion (R06) download had a bad folder structure, so have corrected this. Also has the Dark Cave patch as per above.
*) Mouth Patcher IRO: I added this to the catalog, it can either remove the NPC O mouth texture or replace it with ones used by the main characters.

Hey Sega Chief,

Just reinstalled FF7 today ready for another go at NT.

I have to ask out of sheer curiosity, what is the hidden enemy no one has found in 5 years?

Even if you dont spoil it here and PM me with it I'm just really intrigued!

Though if you dont want to say I obviously understand.
Looking forward to 2.0.

Thanks
