Since then give me your suggestion of project I should add and the info you can find about them (not just the patches but also programs)

How's about something like this: http://wiki.qhimm.com/FF7/Technical/Customising ?

That way it's on the Qhimm Wiki so we don't have to worry about leaving updates in one person's hands, especially if they disappear after a while or the links need updating (saves asking a mod to edit the post for updates). We could also then just replace the out-of-date sticky we currently have with one link that points straight into the Wiki.

9999 Limit Breaking
« Reply #10 on: 2006-11-20 01:57:50 »
Official support thread for 9999LB Patch.

Some screenies:


Download links:
Skerb.exe (see readme inside)
Patch (see readme inside)

Usage (probably the easiest way):
   1) Download both files and unpack them
   2) Put patch.srb with ff7.exe and Skerb.exe
   3) Run Skerb.exe and press any key when it asks you to do so
   4) Rename ff7.exe to something like backup_ff7.exe
   5) Rename patched_ff7.exe" to ff7.exe
   6) Check if it works

If there was any error message, you've probably done something wrong. Recheck everything, see both readmies and try again. If there is still a problem, PM me or post it here.

Enjoy!

dziugo

BETA M BETA E BETA R BETA R BETA Y BETA   BETA  C BETA H BETA BETA R BETA I BETA S BETA T BETA M BETA A BETA S BETA ! BETA ! BETA ! BETA

As far as I've read, this project is dead.

A couple things I noticed:

1. Yellow text must go, it's burning my retinas  :-P
2. Ficedula's Cosmo program is listed twice
3. You should group the programs by functionality and by author (like elentor)

Other then that good job! I'll see if I can find some of M4v3r's programs (Sapphire, Emerald and Omega Weapon)

RPGillespie:
1. You're right the yellow isn't a good idea... I gonna change it someday.
2. fixed thanks for telling me.
3. Well what I will probably do is to group them in fonctionality and do subgroups by authors... because in my opinion.. when you're searching a program, it's not the author that is important but what it will do.  Well anyways for now I'll just gather the more program I can and I'll see later for the groups...

Bane King:
I gonna add this as soon as I have more time.

That's a great idea!! Then they could pay for the bandwidth overages!!  What a dumb idea to link it to the project page on Sourceforge, where you will always get the most up to date version.

Edit:

Sorry for going off topic.  A great thread stormmedia!

It's all the same website. I just have control over how some of it looks.
