The releases section is for actual releases. The thread can be moved back when there is a release.

Maybe, but if so, then that was before my time here.

I'm accustomed to the Bootleg process where it installs Avalanche GUI first, then Menu Overhaul on top. The FF9/FF10 styles no longer work because the switcher.dll for them broke after Aali Driver 0.8x released. If you've cracked open the UI and know anything about modding it, then you'd know that MO is fairly proprietary and doesn't play well with vanilla UI hex values. Because of that, it's quite a pain to fix for hext injection.

The whole reason we saw stat values drastically off when combining MO (ff7_mo.exe) with New Threat in the current 7H catalog is because NT is trying to apply to an altered exe when it was built for an unaltered exe. It's time to retire any exe/lgp altering mods and build everything for memory injection into a vanilla game.

In reality, this is almost entirely the Menu  Overhaul.  The font, font data - and so on. 

It's being placed onto the old GUI - something me and Kramner originally did - hence the badly placed cursors and so on.  I have no problem with this as long as full credit is given.  Permission should have been asked.

That's fine. I don't care about the credit for myself, but we'll make sure DLPB and Kranmer are credited. Sorry for not asking.

It's proven really tricky to get MO to work inside 7H using an unedited exe, so that's why I'd like to see it redone onto the old GUI.

The reason I made this thread Covarr is I needed a url to put in the 7th heaven url section, but I appreciated you moved the thread instead of deleting it.  This thread is the intended support thread for the mod but it will be part of the new 7th heaven catalog for distribution.

Yeah DLPB you will be credited of course.  More then just a credit, this wouldnt have even been possible without your work.

Basically I made new fonts for the battle UI headers, I also made the new bar borders by myself based upon the thinnest bars.  But the font for the text and some UI enhancements were ported over from menu overhaul mod and that was never going to go uncredited, thanks for letting us finish it.

Hi all, and thanks for the work you have put into this game for the past years and even now ^^

I just wanted to ask if this UI will use psx icons for button prompts, like during the event at Junon the first time you get there. Playing that part with Pc button prompts like "Button 9" is like a guessing game.


Again, thanks for your work on this game, you're the ones who made the real Remaster ;)

Any progress report on this? And will it be compatible with the Switch version? The last thing to mod in my Switch version is the UI. I'm hoping to use this fantastic work!

Still in the works for PC version using 7H. I don’t own a Switch, so you’ll have to work that out on your own.
