I might have missed something, but I didnt see anything where someone said you couldnt do this.. It is very possible that I missed whatever was said.. Who told you that you couldn't post a modified scene.bin file.. And how big is the file? (out of curiosity)

The scene.bin file contains attributes for the game right? like rules?

It was me.
In general, it's rather dodgy to allow users to redistribute FFVII data files.
I personally don't have the time to monitor all threads but I do so when I come across any.

However, I shall discuss this with Qhimm later to see what he thinks, unless he posts back instead.

It's a bit dodgy yes, and even if scene.bin is on the lower half of the distributing-game-files dodginess scale it's easier from a moderation standpoint to draw the line at zero. Otherwise you'd eventually get arguments like "well if you're allowing this file, why not this slightly bigger one?"...

If you want to be sure your posted link will stay up, please make a patch instead of redistributing the actual files.

It's quite awe-inspiring to hear from all the authorities at once, sequentially, isn't it?

The scene.bin file is simply modified monster values only 264kb in size.
Creating a patch would be rather pointless.

What about a self installing zip file??

    • A new copy of FF7 thanks to Salk. Pack (zip/rar/etc) your saved game before sending it to me.

It's not about it's size. It's about the Copyrights, that still belong to Square/Eidos.
