I get the death animation and his second form briefly appears then I get the prompt to do an emergency save and it will crash.

This is 100% repeatable, any ideas on how to discover whats breaking it?

We need to know what mods you are running, the exe you are using, characters in party, etc

The standard 1.02 patch exe that almost everyone uses (Why would I use another? :) )
Its patched to give tifa all yeahs and faster vincent limit break damage boost, however I tested without those patches and still crashes.
I use 7th heaven to launch and have these mods enable din 7th heaven in following order.

misc team avalanche fields
field models objects
animations
battle models characters
battle models enemies
battle textures
field models main characters
field models NPCs
field textures satsuki
media movies
menu avatars and backdrops
minigames collection
spell textures
world textures

I am going to launch the game without 7th heaven to see if I can get through the fight.

Still crashes without 7th heaven

I have a modded kernel and kernel2, also modded battle scene file.

have you edited any of your lgp's ? What edits were made to your kernels and scene? Sounds like the issue is either a messed up or missing battle model, but if you didnt edit you lgp then not that. So its gotta be something youve done to either the characters ai in the kernel or the enemy/fight data from the scene.

As far as I am aware I have not edited any lgp files.  only the scene file.
Not edited enemy AI just stats.
Also not touch characters AI

kernel edits

changes to potions, hi potions, turbo ethers, elixit, megalixir, phoenix down, all other items not changed
changes to summons
some spells changed

kernel2 edits to make various in game descriptions for some equipment more verbose, and to edit descriptions for stuff I changed like potions

I can try stock scene.bin to see if the battle plays out. If this doesnt work I will try stock kernel files.

The editor I used was proudclod for enemy stats

stock scene.bin it doesnt crash, so it doesnt like the stat changes, interesting.

I will attach my custom scene.bin if you want to experiment.

So you have scene 215 incorrect. You have phase 3 hojo in it not phase 2. thats whats causing the problems. it should be hellatic hojo and the model id should be 0132

nice find :)

how I did that I have no idea, you know how to put it right, without starting with a brand new scene.bin and redoing hours of work?

I got no idea how it ended up like this but I think I can fix it with scenereader, as that puts each individual scene segment in its own file so I can just insert the stock 215 back in place I think.

It looks like everything is correct except the model id. So go to the enemy stats tab, change the name to w/e you want it to be. Helletic Hojo is the vanilla. Then change the model ID to 0132 and hit ok. That should fix it. The script and attacks all seem to still be Helletic Hojo so its a 30 second fix

Thanks, crash is now gone.

However the battle gets stuck now, he seems to be getting stuck on his turn as nothing happens after a short time.  Just idle battle animations infinitely.
