Got this issue when trying to "activate all mods"

Code: [Select]
System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.
   at Iros._7th.Workshop.fLibrary.CheckAllowedActivate(Guid modID) in c:\Iros\7thWorkshop\fLibrary.cs:line 511

   at Iros._7th.Workshop.fLibrary.bActivateAll_Click(Object sender, EventArgs e) in c:\Iros\7thWorkshop\fLibrary.cs:line 1087

   at System.Windows.Forms.NativeWindow.Callback(IntPtr hWnd, Int32 msg, IntPtr wparam, IntPtr lparam)

I actually got this same error. Tell me did you have 7H previously installed? You may have to wipe the settings and start over.

Long time user, longer time lurker.

Wanted to drop in and say: A) Thanks for all of your hard work, I'm sure the silent majority of us all feel the same way. B) Looking forward to the new release.

All the best.

Hey everyone,

preparing my new Win10 machine for 7th Heaven and further updates.
I encountered a problem which i didnt have on my Win7 machine, so i wonder if anyone can give me a clue.

When i am starting the game with 7th Heaven, the resolution is on mismatch. I have uploaded an image to show you what i mean.






Any ideas so far?

Did you upgrade to Windows 10? If so you may need to wipe the settings and start anew. Or maybe just try running the converter again and it should run the ff7config for you to fix your resolution settings.

I had this issue when i upgraded to 8.1. Believe it or not setting the desktop icon scaling to smallest fixed it. Why? I have no idea but I know I wasn't the only one it worked for.

Looks like one of the mods didn't finish downloading all the way. Go into your mods\7th Heaven\temp folder and see if any .iro files are in there. If there are, note the name of them, then delete them. Then go into 7H and Uninstall them if they are still listed in the Library tab. Now go to the Catalog tab and download again. You may have to restart 7H to get the download button to appear.

The next Catalog update will have a new file format using the 7H compression tool. I am hoping this may reduce some of the download errors people get, but in the end, network problems happen that I can't control. Sometimes 7H just doesn't enjoy communicating with slow internet or countries outside the US. I don't think it's a major problem, just something I've taken note of over the past year of its release.

unfortunately, it didnt work for me. besides, it was already set to smallest.

--> Found the solution: Turn off high dpi scaling. :)

That's what I had suggested to you as possible problem, but you found it out by yourself.

 had an issue with the Game Converter on the Steam version of FF7. Basically when I click on it, the black splash screen appears quickly and disappears. It appears and disappears so fast that I could not read the text inside, so I copied the screen just as it was opening up to see what it was saying and just before closing, it had this error message about the registry (I can't remember exactly what it said, I can post the image on here later if needed). I did download and successfully run Game Converter before, but I had to do a complete uninstall of FF7 and re-install it. After that, Game Converter doesn't work anymore. I'm pretty sure when I uninstalled (I use an uninstall program that deep cleans), it also deleted some important registry needed for Game converter to work properly. So anyway, does anyone know of some way to work around this or better yet, fix it? Thanks in advance!

Yea sorry that's what I meant, I'm dumb sometimes, it was like a year ago that I had to do that too.

Go to the Catalog tab and click Search to refresh the list of mods.

Read the FAQ on the first page. There is a way to reset 7H settings so it can open again.


guessing this what you mean?

It's rare, but something wasn't setup properly. There are a couple things that can be done...

1. Delete everything at ...Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\7thWorkshop and reopen 7th Heaven. If it opens, you will need to redo your Workshop -> Settings again.
2. Delete the mods in [gamedir]\mods\7th Heaven and reopen 7th Heaven. You will need to Uninstall the mods from the 7th Heaven UI and download them from the Catalog tab again.



if so i dont seem to have a appdata folder to go to delete them.



update: folder wasnt there but now found it else were and got 7th to open again

Usually the AppData folder is a hidden folder, so you have to either do a Search for it or Google how to remove it from hidden.

so after removing everything and adding everything one by one and testing i found that if i use the red werewolf mod or the menu overhaul it creates problems with battles.
