So is it technically possible?
This is great, I think this feature can be huge,

cloudiar, I know of a way to add more than 16 models to the field, but it takes some extra steps. If you add a variable to the 7thHeaven.var; a new char folder to your iro; a script to the mod.xml to trigger the new folder when the variable flips; then trigger the variable in game; then refresh the current Field you will have access to another set of 16 models. However, you will have to port your new 16 models to have the same hrc id as the replaced models and set them up in their own 7H mod folder. You can do this as much as you want with any module of the game, but you must refresh the field. I have demos on my youtube of it in action. Also thanks for using my Kalm town battle field in your mod. Not enough gamers have got to experience it.

myst6re, I really hope that saving bug is gone because it has caused me so many nightmares. But regardless your Makou Reactor program is the best and makes all things possible in FFVII.

The feature I mentioned could be used to create card games, for example triple triad (ff8)

True, 7hv could be used to load another 16 models, but something more difficult I doubt.

I want add new card card game, but have one big problem, when you select the cards they have to come out in the game.

The field id should show only your four chosen cards, and your opponent's four.

The choice is between 50 cards for example, or 100, I really do not see possible that 7hv can load the selection, do you have any idea?

Researching in makou reactor I discovered that it is possible to load npc via script (free group), and in the list of models you can load add 20 or more (maybe 255).

Then maybe module to load model ID in a local variable, so that it looks for the corresponding npc, same limitation but quantity expansion!

I think this can improve any mod, I think the operation where ff8 with triple triad should be similar, if it is possible to do this it would be to expand limitations of ff7.

I saw some of your videos, good job, I also want to make a new walkmesh in icicles (unused map), but your mod looks pretty good ;)

Question for myst4re, how load de values of savemap in local var?? (dlpb module)

I dont know how write this info in local var, exist some documentation?

Thanks grimmy and myst4re

If for the minigame you have all the models spaces that you need (  8  ) and your problem is the selection screen between your 100 cards, as says grymmy,with 7th heaven i think you could do that. Just show 16 cards and let the user an option to move backward or forward , and when the user select one of this options, change the variable to show the nexts 16 cards

Oh shit, the previous post has a question of a guy about PS1/PSX...I editing the PS1 version a lot and one of my fields file became longer. Which i don't see that is - the program salving the iso with the file increasing the field and when i export the same field file and delete for example some dialogues of him became smaller...

I putting back some unuseds scenes, watching some sites - same scenes is impossible because the file became longer and i want the iso reading in the real console.
New scenes based in the beta and some modifications too.

I want to ask if someone here which has modding the PS1 version and use the MassIsoUpdate program has problems with the iso reading in the real console? Much unused content i want to put is impossible, like the bridge of corel scene and other...

Hello,
I'm trying to fix the Nibelheim revelation cutscene, where Cloud's true past is revealed. The problem is that the cutscene is too fast for the music (tb.ogg). In the PSX and PS4 versions the climax of the track begins when Cloud fights back after he has been stabbed by Sephiroth, while on PC, even after the Mako Reactor music bug has been fixed, the climax doesn't even start because the cutscene has already ended. I've noticed that in the new console re-releases this has been fixed by extending the duration of the black screen when Zack tells Cloud to get off his helmet, while on the road to Nibelheim. Would it be possible to do something similar with Makou Reactor?

EDIT: I've been able to fix both the Nibelheim flashback (got it perfectly sinchronized to psx version) and Yuffie's introduction, where the music of the last field you entered would have played, now it immediately plays her theme (yufi.ogg).
But I've not been able to fix the sound effects that play immediately after Tifa is in the lifestream (the field with the black background). The sfx are still played too quietly, some are played randomly and sometimes not at all. If someone has ever been able to fix it (without Reunion) please let me know.

Very nice myst4re, in older (1.8.0/1.8.1) is stable, but fail import and cread new map, is not enable? (never run original file).

You have documentation of opcodes savemap access? its really run?

THANKS for all.

Sorry I'm not sure to understand your question

This is implemented in DLPB's DLLs, I don't provide any documentation about it.

I have found a serious error in 1.8.2 but I imagine that in the others it also affects other new versions.

In script editor, in mathematics -> binary operation

Example:

Var[5][1] = Var [5][1] mod Var [5][0]

The type "modulas", this operation generates instant crash, in any case, in 8-bit and 16-bit mode.

Does your editor automatically save all code to version 1.8.2 when saving? (even if you only edit one field map)

If it is true it may be a problem, I must have serious problems in my project, let me know please, I can assure you that in 1.6.2 this works correctly, I have used many times to create random of any numbering.

If I find new errors I will inform you.

More mistakes

Autocorrection jump to label to 16 bits is corrupt, at least in my case, maybe due to the amount of code, in any case it takes a long time to find it, the makou reactor in addition to not warning 16-bit jumps, so this is saved broken, all the broken jumps, some labels disappear.

It also gives problems with variable editing, sometimes the program closes.

I think it has trouble handling a lot of cache memory (copy long code, etc)

When you spend a lot of time editing or writing code it can break.

When you copy groups too, it sometimes crashes.

I am continuing on 1.8.2 to help you, but I am worried about the corruption of my project, you will have to inform me.

You are a genius, but now you have more work haha, you have it difficult to improve the performance of version 1.6.2, it is without a doubt the most stable version in my case.

Can you share a field map file to reproduce the issue? thanks!

Thank you for making such a great piece of software! Thought I should mention some of the glitches I've encountered:

-The white text in dark mode turns black whenever you edit a script.

-It sometimes crashes when you switch between flevel files and then edit something.

-Opening the walkmesh viewer marks the file as having unsaved changes, even if you didn't actually change anything.

-The "Red XIII is named Nanaki" custom opcode doesn't seem to work. I tried using it and the game just hung. (It also didn't create a collapsible code block like if statements usually do.)

-Looks like Cloudiar reported this already, but I noticed, when working with large amounts of if statements, that the game started behaving strangely. When I closed and reopened the file, all the goto statements were changed to "forward %n bytes", with all the corresponding labels missing:

(That screenshot also shows the black text issue I mentioned)


And one suggestion I have, I've noticed that animation type 2 usually waits for the animation to finish before continuing (while type 1 doesn't), but for "play animation and return to previous state," it's reversed. It would be nice if that were fixed—or, better yet, if it actually said something like "waiting for end to continue" on the frontend, so you don't have to memorize which is which.

Keep up the good work!

I have sent you the file with the label problem privately!

Hmm odd, I though I fixed this one.

Yeah I noticed that too, I will try to fix it.

-The "Red XIII is named Nanaki" custom opcode doesn't seem to work. I tried using it and the game just hung. (It also didn't create a collapsible code block like if statements usually do.)

Your game also needs to supports it, do you use Reunion? I think it will works with it

Can you test with this build? https://ci.appveyor.com/api/buildjobs/319kwobw6dags5d1/artifacts/makoureactor-continuous-win32.zip

Hi, been using MR for a while now, you did a great job with it, btw! I've been trying to put the materia tutorial in a different place, but I can't get it to start. The menu just comes up but nothing happens. I've got the tutorial text added to the list and "Tutorial #2" in the commands list, but it won't run. Is there a step I'm missing? How do I know which number to use, because on the 7th Heaven field, "Tutorial #3" is the command used, but it's labeled "Tuto 4" in the list.

I think on PC version the loading of tutorial files is hardcoded specificly for 7th Heaven and Junon. If we can do something, I guess it is by patching the game. I'll look at it someday :)

Oh ok, thanks. I didn't know that. I can keep the tutorial in 7th Heaven easily enough then and just have it happen when you talk to the character I intended to have start it instead of Barret. I appreciate you getting back to me. :)
