Good question. So good, in fact, that I'm moving the topic to the FAQ.

It would no doubt be a good idea to create a common file repository for released mods, or at the very least a common topic/forum with the current links.

Suggestions, regulars?

well i thought it would be just one topic with all the mods in them but what your saying does make sense. Like you could have a indivual topic for each mod/ patch and people could discuss their problems with-in the related topic.. is that what you mean?

I have the high-res cloud path, the hand patch, and the official fixes (as well as the chocobo patch) on my site here:  http://www.ff7-universe.com/download.html

Feel free to add this link to the FAQ =)

If it's going to stay localized like this, either a single sticky thread like what's currently happening, or bribe Aaron to host everything, since he has bandwidth. ;)
If we want this to be an all-ecompassing repository (in other words *every* semi-useful file that's ever appeared here--and I have most of them), then I'd suggest Bit Torrent. Most big public trackers probably won't mind one of us submitting a compendium torrent to them.

You know, if you want to make an "all-emcompassing repository," then I'm all for it...  I can set up some FTP account for people to submit things and public web directory for people to look through it.

Well, ordinarily, that'd be a bad idea; too easy to spread virus's around.

However, the ff7 modding community is fairly closly knit (pretty much this site, and gamevn or something like that, and i -guess- animevamp), and i don't think too many people would bother uploading a virus that'd only affect like, 100 people at most, as most people who even HAVE ff7 pc are unaware of patches and mods for it..

I think perhaps at least a signup option should be in order so you can track who uploads what.  Just for precautions sake.

If I were to do it, I think I would make the name/pass required to upload stuff available by request only.  My FTP server already logs the IP address of who connects and who uploads what, and everything runs through the virus scanner, with definitions updated reguarly... though, I guess someone could upload something that isn't detected or something in a compressed format that the scanner won't read if they tried hard enough.

Anyway, if someone wants to go ahead with this, PM me for FTP login info and I'll get it set up, and throw in the files I have.

No, it scans common archive formats (zip, rar, iso, etc.), but if it can't scan inside it, the file will just come through as clean.  I guess I could be more strict about this, but I've never had a reason to be.

I'm not that worried about it though.  I think it's unlikely that someone would try to sneak a virus up in there (keeping in mind that people would have to request the name/pass before they can upload something).

Ironically I was working on a file repository part of the site a while back... to be integrated into these forums, somewhat (shared user database and whatnot). Maybe I should actually get around to finishing it.

If you don't mind me asking, would this be related in any way to the latent "attach to post" ability these PHP-type forums are supposed to have, or are we talkin' about something more akin to Mirex' Trash bin here?

It blows up.

No, seriosuly, tnt is a type of nvidia graphics card, so the sephy patch was altered a bit to work with it.. or sumthing.

1 year and 1 season ago...  Guess that makes that necromancy.

Now someone else beat me, why aren't there any more links?

Oh bloody hell...

I think we should finally start banning people for ressurecting dead topics...  :x

Because this is a dead topic.
