just out of curiosity, what model format does ff8 use? is it the same as ff7? if so, wouldnt it be possible to create new NPC models working off those from 8? just a thought

What an awesome idea!  I hope it is possible.  Could be pretty cool.  Since FF8 has detailed NPC characters, could use them to replace all FF7's NPCs.

Heh, could even replace Zack with Squall!  That would be interesting...  Also, doesn't Rinoa look a little like Tifa in Advent Children?  My favourite was Quistis though.  Mmm, Quistis.  Shame she wasn't important to the story after the first 1/4 of the game, no sub-quests or character development.

Sorry to dissapoint you, but no, models are not compatible at all. Also the technology used is completly different (ff8 uses texture covered models).

And no, there is no way to convert anything event ff8 to ff7 models so far.

It's not possible until now, but I think this will change in a few months  :D

No, I'm not joking. But as I said, it will take months, maybe over a year, until the results will be usable for the public community...
