Hey all - I need help testing the hext setup for Menu Overhaul and Beacause in Catalog 3.0. If we can get this working, then we'll no longer need to switch .exe based upon what active mods you have. Just download, activate, configure, launch and play.

Menu Overhaul - 3.0 TEST: https://mega.nz/#!i0QTBaLK!Jq4VNuAoWnir3WxSjDpiIj4MHn1MUGz3USD_soAyjJs
  • Change your FF7 Exe to the patched 1.02 ff7.exe provided from 7H_GameConverter_Final. Don't use any modified .exes (New Threat, Reunion, etc.)
  • Please post your Profile Details (bottom right of the Active Mods tab).
  • The control icons are a placeholder. They don't work in this test.



EDIT: I've managed to get it working on both desktop and laptop. The desktop had Data Execution Prevention (DEP) disabled, so I enabled it through the command prompt using a command line found online:

bcdedit.exe /set {current} nx optin

I'll put this in the 7H FAQ thread.

I can try giving it a test when I get home from work.

Edit: Can confirm it works without a hitch. Just imported and activated, easy.

Thank you Derek. It's good to see it working with mods outside of Qhimm as well.

I'm going to release this alongside an FFX version, Avalanche 2.1.0 GUI and Menu Enhancement (Reunion R05c) within a new category called Menu - Interface.

Apparently it's working, but the control icons are not showing up (they appear as [OK] [Cancel] instead of icons). However, I have The Reunion (R05c) installed, maybe that's why the icons do not appear? (I had installed some time before I started using the 7thHeaven mods)

Other than that, everything seems to be working properly.

Read the OP again :P
Well, now everything makes sense. :)

I realized that this version does not have the option to remove the hand indicator and some other functions, but I assume they will be in the final version, right?

And thank you for your awesome work.

I want to test it out too but would using the 1.54 version of 7th heaven cause issues?

Can anyone test this or is this for specific people who have catalog 3 already?

I am ok testing it but you never released catalog 3 so i am confused if this is testable by anyone?

Catalog 3 is still in early testing, it'll be a while before it actually hits the wire.

I have a few custom IRO's I edited and imported myself, as for the menu overhaul 3.0 IRO, anyone can download and test. Alyza just needed feedback from different user's to make sure the new additions check out okay.

ok thanks for confirming anyone can test.

After I relaunched 7thheaven it showed properly as decactivated, I then activated and it appears and can be configured, I moved it to your order above spell textures.

Enabled the menu overheaul, disabled, beacause in settings.

The good news is materia stats are stock.

The bad news it is overiding my equipment mods, so this exe mod is still overiding balance aspects of the game.

I will post some screenshots ASAP to show what I mean.

(I had to fix sound config issue to even get ff7 to run hence my delay).

Obviously this is probably out of EQ2Alyza's power as she is just making this exe compatible with 7thheaven, I expect the issue is reunion itself, with its proprietry non modular design.

Here is screenshots comparing my equipment screens for ultimate weapon and chocobracelet, with the menu mod and without it.  I modded using tools on this site which changes data files the game uses, somehow this exe is overiding those data files.

Ultimate weapon I think has no stats modded, but like most equipment in the game I enhanced its description.  chocobracelet has enhanced description and growth changed to triple.  On the menu mod exe you can see these are overuled.





Also I can confirm as well its forcing stock materia values, I have customised materia balance changes as well that are overriden by the mod.

So if this mod is added to 7thheaven a description needs to make it clear it "enforces" stock materia/equipment values, probably overiding game change/balance mods.

Also for some reason in my game if I goto the check option whilst in the menu, my game crashes. 

If I keep the mod activated but just disable the menu change, everything is fine on the balance, so the menu code itself is whats overiding the balance changes.  This makes me wonder if the balance changes are actually live or if the developer just is forcing it cosmetically on menus, I would need to test in game if e..g. chocobracelet does actually still do triple AP growth.

--

Tested, can confirm MP cost of summons and AP reward on chocobo are not cosmetic only, they actually rebalanced by the mod. :(

Check in the menu consistently crashes game, but in game battle menu doesnt crash.

Always post your Profile Details, that way we can see what mods and load order you're using in conjunction with MO. What mod(s) are you using to balance your game stats?

sorry I forgot that, here you go.

The mods are my own mods, I used tools like proudclod, sceneedit, scenereader etc. to manually alter the scene and kernel files, those files seem to be overriden by the reunion menu mod.  I cannot remember the complete list of tools off hand as I last adjusted in 2017 but I still have all the tools on my hdd.

I think wallmarket is what I been using mostly.  so wallmarket, proudclod.  Plus black chocobo to put aerith back after her events.

I also hex edited some stuff like changing miss's for tifa to yeah's on her limit break, and a few other minor things in the game.  I can do a complete list if you think its important.  I would be surprised if these are the cause of the menu issue tho.  Everything plays well together except this reunion menu mod.  Also I did test on a exe without the hexedit mod's. Because of this  --> Change your FF7 Exe to the patched 1.02 ff7.exe provided from 7H_GameConverter_Final. Don't use any modified .exes (New Threat, Reunion, etc.)

Just done bit more testing

What proudclod edits (monsters) which is scene.bin, actually looks like its intact, so monsters are still rebalanced by my changes.  Its kernel.bin  and kernel2.bin (edited by wallmarket mostly) that's been overriden by the exe mod.  I hope that helps.

I am thinking the solution is to somehow make my kernel.bin and kernel2.bin a patch, and then put it "after" the menu overhaul in the 7thheaven order.

See this thread also.  http://forums.qhimm.com/index.php?topic=16526.0  You replied and indicated this wouldnt be an issue in 3.0 but seems it still is.  I am trying to figure out how to make my files a 7thheaven patch and then see if that fixes the problem, but I guess I need to take this to another thread, as I think this is unexpected behaviour from what you was expecting but I am not sure if this is part of what you wanted testing.

----

Fixed it.

Taking note of your post saying the kernel files would be removed.

I extracted the lro file using 7th heaven.
Noticed both kernel files were there, and removed them.
Made a new lro file.
Uninstalled the old LRO and imported the new one.

Now my balance changes are intact.  Also this has fixed the check menu bug crash.

Wow you dont know how happy I am, waited 2 years for this but the day is here, fixed menu mod.  This was probably considered such a minor fix, but for me this is huge, as youcan see in my screenies I added lext descriptions, on the default UI with it's big font, for some of the stuff it went off screen as was too much text, on this menu overhaul it all fits, as well as looking nicer.  Thank you so much.  I dont know if there is any issues that be caused by removing the kernel files from the lro, but I think they shouldnt be as the menu changes are in the exe patch not the kernel files and you said yourself in the older post they should be removed.

Thank you for testing :)

I'm not perfect (but almost ;)), so I'll make note of the kernels for the 3.0 release.

Can you share that "bix" font with me?

That font is part of the menu overhaul mod.  Or do you mean my modifications?

You mentioned "bix" font in your previous post, so I misunderstood what you meant.

Ahaa I meant big font, I will edit the post, sorry. :)  The font in the stock menu is larger so cannot fit so much text in the description box.

I will play this for a few hours random fights etc. and see if any issues.


----

Game crash when using PHS, when I push right or the button to select character to replace it crashes.
This happens on the kernel version as well.  So removing kernel had no impact.  Ideally need someone else to see if they get this crash as well.

----

Trying to figure out what the cause is.  I deactivated avatar and menu background mod it had no impact on PHS crash.

I then tried the older 2.3 menu overhaul mod, and that one does "not" have the PHS crash.

So the crash is unique to the 3.0 version.  I am tired so will play with this some more after some sleep.

----

One of the hext files in the lro causes the crash, but am so tired, I will post the lines that were the problem later probably in about 8 hours. :)

I experienced that crash as well and knew it was from the hext file. If you find the specific line, cancel it out by adding a # in front of it and post your results.

Yeah there is numerous PHS related hext blocks but it is this one causing the crash, in this file 01-Base_2.txt.

I dont know which exact line tho, but this at least narrows it down a "lot" for you.  Also I observed in the older menu overhaul there is no kernel files so I think its deffo safe to remove those now, they will conflict when people have customised those files.  kernel2 has some text entries so would perhaps be parts of beacause translation but not the menu mod.

I see there is many areas patched like battle square, select name screen etc. so I need to test many areas of the game.


I am learning more and more on how 7thheaven works LOL, enough now I think I will be making some of my own lro patches :)  Also i adjusted the defaults on this lro, so by default, all the options are to my liking, like xbox buttons, and coloured items :)
