ahh. ok then lol. hopefully the inspiration finds you soon enough. didja see the trailer for the remake? pretty nice i must say lol.

as far as your mod as well as Sega Chief's, my appreciation for modding and ff7 proper isn't likely to die off any time soon. both you have given new life to a classic in your own way. thanks guys lol.

only wish certain smaller-scale mods still existed. that DoC themed vincent model set was pretty beastly, no pun intended (or is it?) i think kazama did that one....where even the limit forms were edited to match what DoC could've been.

Could someone explain what that monomod thing does? I would check myself but don't own a computer or laptop... back when I used to play this mod years ago I still lived at my parents and used their computer

in mono mod your base stats stays at 1 and your HP/MP levels are very low and grows very slowly. And you start with all equipment (not weapons) and all of each materia (not summons and master materia). The idea is that you can use more strats from the start of the game while still being somewhat challenging.

You can use equipment and materia to raise your stats but base stats will never exceed 1. Sources do not work.

Well that's certainly creative, thanks for the quick response.

I'm looking forward to trying out this mod again once I finally buy my first ever laptop or computer.  Last I played was about 5 or 6 years ago

Hi gjoerulv, i started to play your hardcore, but i have a question: i have Cloud with Blizzard and Thunder, there is a way to have them called Ice and Bolt? Like in the original game.

Yes, the names are in the kernel2.bin. If you patched that file and made backups, try and restore it.

It don't work, i don't know why :(
Can you send me that file via email? Thanks.

And another thing: i don't know why, but musics are not the original, they seems like a newest version.

Sorry for the late reply. Did you figure it out?

If you use steam you can validate the game files integrity to restore all of the original files. In your library right click your game -> Properties -> change tab to Local Files -> click Verify integrity of game files... With this, you can completely reset the files. After that, wait 'til steam has downloaded all files, then patch again with Kernel2.bin unchecked.

On a side note, I think there is a bug in the app that won't restore steam version backups of the scene and kernels. I've made the fix, but not officially released it. The fix is in the link a few posts back.

I use a cracked version of the steam's one (i'm waiting for steam sales).
I tried to reverted the patch and to update with the kernel2.bin unchecked, but nothing changed.
I still have thunder/fire/cura/blizzard and still have the newest soundtracks.
Don't know how to fix it.

Can't help you until you get a legit copy. Come back after the Steam Sales.

Ok, i bought the Steam version.
But i have a problem, when i use you program, i click on "Steam" and it appear an error: "Couldn't find FF7 Steam installation path. Have you installed FF7 on Steam?". Of course i did, don't know why it give me this error.
After this error, i click Ok. Then go on "Patch", click it and it give me another error: "Type or select a valid path", but the path i selected is the right one.
After this, it appear: "An error occured while patching. Do you want to see the log file for details?"

I don't know how to fix all these problems.

Hey everyone,

New here. Just want to start by thanking you for making this mod. Loving it so far. Having a more difficult FF7 is a dream come true.

I have a few questions:

I can't seem to find any guides out there for this. Can anyone point me toward one if it exists?

Why can't I learn Chocobuckle in this mod? I gave the chocobo mimmett greens and casted L4 suicide and he just flees. I verified he is lv 16.

How the heck do I learn death force from the adamantaimai? I can't figure out a way to kill him. I've just gotten the tiny bronco. Do I need to be very high leveled or is there a trick to bring him down?

Sorry if these questions have been already asked or answered here or elsewhere as I am new to these types of forums and modded games in general.

Thanks!

Hey guys, great mod.
I have an issue at the "Temple of the Ancients" where the game consistently crashes during Tseng's dialogue in the cutscene after navigating the rolling boulders.

[00003878] : unhandled exception
Any assistance is greatly appreciated.

EDIT: So I didn't find a real fix but I used Black Chocobo to skip that scene. I was then able to play until I caught the Ancient in the tunnel maze.
However as soon as I enter the locked door and Sephiroth's dialogue begins, my game basically sticks. To elaborate the music is still playing, there is no "crash" or error log, the characters are just standing around and I am unable to register any button presses.
It is possible that by skipping the earlier scene I may have locked this current scene. I can try and skip some more scenes but that would mean missing out on some boss fights, etc, and lends to the issue if this is something that carries forward.
I have a feeling there is some conflict with sound drivers possibly, since 7th Heaven refuses to work for me as well and crashes on game startup, and the APP.LOG hints at that sort of issue.
Once again any help or advice is appreciated.
