Releases / [FF7PC] German FFVII Reworked (BETA 0.4)
« on: 2012-12-25 19:18:59 »

This is only for users with a German ff7 installation on their PC.
Please install the FF7 Game Converter (BETA) before this mod!
It's not really needed but I highly recommend    it.

Edited Files:
  • scene.bin - to use new spellname in fight
  • char.lgp - many redone new models and added new models to enhance immersion
  • flevel.lgp - the main work of these project. In short: nearly every text is rewritten,
    the character models are sized up so they fit (more) to the backgrounds and some other stuff like script fixes.
  • kernel.bin and kernel2.bin - new name for magic materia (Latin like for example: Fire to Ignis)
    some stuff descriptions (not finshed) and battle text refinements
  • audio.dat and audio.fmt - new sounds, don't be worry sound was only changed if I guess it is an improvement to the default sound

and here it is:
FFVII_German_Reworked_beta04.exe


To do List:

 Must do:
  -create a better installer (I've no experience with stuff like that)
  -checking texts again (I can't see it anymore...)
  -making some characters more personal
  -adapt story more to the prequels and sequels (not that I like any of them, but they exist and I can't ignore them)

 Can do:
   -changing more savepoints to moogles (FF9 style) -canceled
   -bring back SOLDIER: this will change Junon's military to SOLDIER military

 Could do:
   -moogles story + quest
   -releasing full potential of FF7's fighting system: enemy woking in teams - tank, damage-dealer, supporter
    (because I've no idea how to get this to work this will be never done - it is possible
     by working with proudClod but the AI-system is a book with seven seals to me)


From this point on I write German:
Wie ihr sicherlich schon mitbekommen habt, handelt es sich hierbei um eine Überarbeitete Version von Final Fantasy VII.
Die Texte sind weitest gehend so geschrieben, dass sie dem Spiel mehr Sinn geben.
Aber bitte beachtet, dass es sich hierbei um eine neu Interpretation der einzelnen Szenen handelt.  Ich persönlich ziehe eine Interpretation einer korrekten Übersetzung vor.
Warum? Nun beim durchgehen der Texte merkt man nach einer Weile, dass einige Storysegmente ziemlich unsinnig sind.
Ein gutes Beispiel ist Cloud selbst oder besser gesagt, das was Cloud trägt: eine SOLDAT-Uniform.
Die ist unsinnig? Ja, weil faktisch kein ShinRa-Mitarbeiter (ausgenommen President Shinra) Cloud als SOLDAT erkennt.
Generell geht die ganze SOLDAT-Sache doch arg im Spiel unter.

Ich habe versucht die Story interessanter zu gestalten mit neuen Texten - Cloud's Jenova wird jetzt erkentlicher in sein Verhalten eingreifen.
Desweiteren versuche ich die Einzelnen Charaktere weiter auszuarbeiten (Cloud macht mir allerdings zu schaffen da ich eigentlich Zacks verhalten auf ihn anwenden muss).
Ich habe die Texte zwar alle geprüft, aber wenn man alleine ein komplettes Spiel überarbeitet entstehen nun mal leider hier und da Fehler.
Die größte Arbeit hatte ich allerdings mit dem anpassen der Caraktermodellgröße an die Hintergründe.
Nun lauft ihr endlich nicht mehr mit Deumelienchen und Co. durch die Welt!

Noch ein paar Worte zu Materia und Items: Magiematerien haben lateinische (ähnliche) Namen bekommen.
Ich habe mich dazu entschieden, weil ich einige der original Namen als unpassend empfand.
Außerdem bekommt das ganze Spiel dadurch ein einheitlicheres Erscheinungsbild.
Die Zauber wurden dem FF Universum angepasst (d.h. Vita, Blitzga, Engel,etc.)
Viele Materien haben neue Namen z.B. Schutz wurde zu Bodyguard und Feindeskönnen zu Blau Magie.
Armbänder haben jetzt Beschreibungen. Cloud seine Waffen wurden wurden umbenannt mit dazugehöriger Beschreibung und was weiß ich, was ich da noch
gemacht habe, lasst euch einfach überraschen.

Das wären zu nächst mal die wichtigsten Veränderungen im Materiabereich. Die Support- und Kombimaterien sind zwar auch verändert,
aber weitesgehend sind die Namen so gewählt, dass sie die Funktion gut beschreiben.
Und wer absolut nicht weiß was die Materia macht, der liest sich ihre Beschreibung durch. Dafür ist sie ja da.

Ausrüstung:
'Ring' und 'Reif' wurde durch 'Armband' ersetzt. Alle Armbänder haben jetzt eine Beschreibung.
Vier Schacht wurde duch SOLDAT-Buckler ersetzt - nur durch Cloud verwendbar.

Zubehör:
 Furienring ist nun eine Überlegung wert - Stärke +50

Clouds Waffen: neue Namen mit Beschreibung, manche Waffen verusachen Status und/oder Elementarschaden

Barrets Waffen: Teilweise angefangen, Letzte Waffe umbenannt zu Baby Ray
(sinnvoller in Bezug auf Story und Schadenskalkulierung der Waffe)

Item:
Generell
Trank zu Potion
Gemüse zu Kraut

Speziell
Kraftkapsel  --> Steroide
Abwehrkapsel --> Vitamine
Zauberkapsel --> Dextrose
Gemütskapsel --> Taurin
Speed-Kapsel --> Adrenalin
Glückskapsel --> Endorphine
Heilmittel   --> Allheilmittel
Hyper      --> Enegydrink

Änderungen in der gflevel.lgp

Generell wurden einige Begriffe geändert:

Materia, Ausrsrüstung, Zubehör und Items stimmen die zu finden sind stimmen mit den kernels überein. You got what you see!

Verheißne Land --> Gelobte Land Anm. Verheißungsvoll kann positiv wie negativ sein
Shinra         --> ShinRa
Cetra          --> Esper Anm. Muss nicht zwangsläufig sein, ist aber in der FF-Serie standardmäßig das mystische Volk
Große Materia  --> Mega Materia
SOLDIER        --> SOLDAT Anm. PSX orginal Übersetzung, wird auch in AC verwendet (Rufus "Du kämpfst wie der SOLDAT der du einst warst.")
Planet         --> Gaia Anm. Wir haben für unseren Planeten auch einen Namen,
und soweit ich mich informiert habe ist das auch der korrekte Name für die FF7 Welt.
Wiedervereinigung> Reunion
Sister Ray     --> Mother Ray Anm. Wer in Junon aufgepasst, konnte den Namen 'Sister Ray' schon auf der Kanone lesen.)
  (Midgarversion)
Holy           --> Sanctus Anm. Wird wohl keinen gefallen! Aber es ist eine Magiemateria.

'Geostigma' wird durch Ilfana in Professor Gast's Bericht erwähnt.
'Des Himmels Unheil' des Alten Volkes Beschreibung für Meteor, wird an einigen wenigen Stellen erwähnt. .


Eine Teleportfunktion zwischen Goldsaucer und der Chocobofarm wurde eingefügt, da mich das ewige hin und her zwischen Farm und Goldsaucer
beim 374 mal abgenervt hat.

FF7 Tools / Re: re-sized field models
« on: 2012-10-12 15:21:38 »
My my, I hope I'm finished now...
Well now I need a tool to dump all the sizes and an a way to reimplement them.

2428

i actually asked apz to put that fix into his model he said no because it gives errors.  its such a small step i wont be uploading it. changing a tex id is more of a pain and thats why i have it here. instead ill encourage people to become familiar with the tools. by the way i dont find humor in your sarcasm. (great) tools. people that dont have the nerve and time. so they can have time to play video games but not to learn something.


You missunderstood i really like these tolls! After i getting those to work on my pc I spending hours in it. Sorry for missunderstanding.
Bye the way if you play the right games you could learn many things about the world, Metal Gear for example is more reality as fiction.
Self FF7 is a caricature of our world.

2429
Well I get it to work. I'm clever enough to solve problems like this as long I got a hint what is wrong...
But what I mean is following: you have to change the the textures which should load from the model from 2 to 10. Its actually a easy step in PCreator, but on win7 many xxxxx.ocx are missing so you have to download them and find out how to install. Its time wasting if you don't plan to use these (great) tools more then once. So I asking not for me but for the peoples who don't have the nerves and time, could you please change the texture limit in rtaa from 2 to 10 and put that file it in the apzbustertexid5.zip file?

2430
Would somebody be so nice and create a prepatched vision of the bustersword patch?
Pcreator doesn't work on most win7 systems (same as kimra).
That would be nice. Thanks.

2431
No i think the Soldier taskforce was implement in a very late developing stadium to highlight up Cloud and Sephiroth more.


2432
If you have the knowledge about it: yes. But not every like me knows stuff like that.  What I want to say is, if you unsure: get the hands off. If you sure: give it to me!
But really the discussion about ripping was figth over hundred times... we shouldn't start something like that again.

But honestly the idea using moding content from other games isn't bad, maybe it helps to rework on enemy models.

2433
I think you misinterunderstood him, he's talking about ORIGINAL content, created by modders for other games that he wants to convert for FFVII. That has nothing to do with ripping.

You have to think about it. You never know if a content was ripped in first place self if the author say that he has done the stuff. Specially if they look close to original stuff.

2434
Have somebody ever realized the big bug in the storyline? No i don't mean the Phoenix feather<->Aeriths death bug, that could be easily handled by changing the death status to     unconsciousness (like in newer games),that means if someone goes down he's not dead but unconsciousness and Phoenix feather is cure this status. No, I mean Cloud! He is wearing all the time (1.st Class) Soldier uniform and nearly nobody in Shin-Ra is recognize him as such. He  has to pay entry to get in to Junon, he has to pay for using the boot and the worst of all: some stupid commander in Junon says to him he has to change his cloths.

By the way DLPB, I think changing Zack to Zax could be a wrong idea. There is another interpretation of his name. So the name Zack comes from the name Zachariah (Hebrew) and means
`Remembered by God`. On German sites I find a bit more detail `Remembered by Jahwe (or Jehovah)`. And that's what the jenova of Cloud is doing: she remembers Zack and gives Cloud his personalty. The shortform of Zachariah is Zach. I supposed Zack is a mix between Zach and Zax.

2435
Forget the thing with the screen resolution window, it was the compressed texture option which causing me trouble. :-[

2436
I've been having problems with the driver. So I've installed it on this laptop before (hp dv6, i7 3rd gen,nvidia geforce gt 650M) and I recently had to reinstall ff7 because it wouldn't start. I've completed all of the install steps for the driver, but the damn thing won't start. I'd post the APP log but its blank. Not sure why.

Ok this gets now stupid but that's how to get FF7 to work on nvidia - intelsystems:
1. change in nvidia 3D graphicsetup the used GPU to the intern unit
2. open FF7config and chose custom driver (if the intergraphic-accelerator is on its chosen automatically)
3. change the GPU back to nvidia
Now you should be able to run the game, if you have graphic problems like me open the window for changing screen resolution (its a windows window not Intel or nvidia)
and let it open!!! then run the game.  :mrgreen:
I don't  know why the last step works but it is in most cases the solution for graphicproblems of old games.

FF7 Tools / Re: [1.5] Makou Reactor - a FF7 field editor
« on: 2012-09-19 15:04:17 »
Could you please implement a function to dump model size and reinsert it again?
Because I changed nearly all model sizes (Great northern crater is still to do) so they don't look so ridiculous littel and I would like to share it,
I think this would be nice way to do it. I hope that's possible...  :|

2438
I have seen a problem with the lightmaps.
They are sharper, yes, but ff7 can't handel the transparancy value (i think using black for transparancy is causing that).
There is no light animation any more.   :cry:

Example: ancnt1(etc.) all ligtrays are on.  Or snow_1 the flirring effect is gone.

2439
Counter question: have somebody of you owner of new vision ever bothered squareenix with that problem?
If I see right, the game runs now under directx9, is that the case maybe somebody should speak with the creator of enb-mods.
Maybe they could implement a shader solution, this would save space and time. Plus it would be look better.

Hahaha... I'm sorry, my crystal ball has a scratch...

But honestly it doesn't matter who it was.
I like to have metal in this scene. It would be better to have a metal variant of crazy motorcycle because the lyrics
of the 'non-Rammstein'-FFX-opening are sub-optimal (and it is from FFX)

Here is some inspiration stuff for the Aerith-theme, The birth of god and One winged angel

Aerith-theme: http://mp3bear.com/within-temptation-our-farewelll
Hard decision to replace one of the the most popular songs of FF7,  :'(
but it enhance the situation

The birth of god: http://mp3bear.com/within-temptation-deceiver-of-fools
It is like Aerith is still with you in the final battle

One winged angel: http://mp3bear.com/final-fantasy-7-the-ultimate-one-winged-angel-remix
(pretty sure that you will know it, but i never seen these version around here.)

I'm still searching for a good replacement  of Crazy motorcycle.
At the moment I'm using the FFX opening theme from Rammstein - looks cooler this way. 8-)

2442
You can say that loud.
But working in the script (THANKS myst6re for MakouReaktor) gave me many options for improvements.
By the way i found a possibility make the the transparent characters visible.

I used the light-shader from Sephiroth: map kuro_8; model cefi      I believe it was the first light filter block 

Field Model graphic filter - Activate blending
Wait for graphic filter
Field Model graphic filter - LIGHT ( leave all 255, and make 1 to 0)
Wait 1 frame
Field Model graphic filter - LIGHT
 



2443
The script work as it is (only:58   jump to byte 121 has to be jump to byte 125; 4 play animation... is not needed) you must create the texts for the  windows as well. Changing scripts could be dangerous. The best would be if you use a flevel.lgp file for testing and understanding what the script is doing.
This doesn't mean keep your hands from it, i actually have no experience in scripting. But with a little bit working and (much) time i understand some actions of the script.

2444
And here with PHS:

0 Deactivate the movability of the playable character
2 Disables access to the main menu
4 Play animation #1 of the field model and reset to previous state (speed=1)
7 Var[5][11] = 0 (8-bit)
11 Resizes/Repositions the window #0 (X=8, Y=8, width=138, height=89)
21 Ask Question "“Schlafe{, }schlafe …” Ausruhen Speichern PHS Vergiss es" in the window #0 (and put selected answer in Var[5][11]) first line=1, last line=4
28 If Var[5][11] == 1 (else jump to byte 99)
34   Var[15][20] = amount of item Zelt in the inventory
39   If Var[15][20] == 0 (else jump to byte 60)
45      Create window #0 (X=65, Y=10, Width=173, Height=25)
55      Displays the dialog "Du brauchst ein Zelt zum Ausruhen." in the window #0
58      Jump to byte 121
60   Fades the screen to the colour RGB(0, 0, 0) (speed=8, type=2, adjust=0)
69   Wait for fade
70   Restores full HP and MP of every available character and removing status effects
71   Wait 200 frame
74   Fades the screen to the colour RGB(0, 0, 0) (speed=12, type=1, adjust=255)
83   Wait for fade
84   Remove 1 item(s) Zelt from the inventory
89   Resizes/Repositions the window #0 (X=65, Y=10, width=173, height=25)

121   Show menu Change party (parameter 0)
125 If Var[5][11] == 4 (else jump to byte 131)
131 Activate the movability of the playable character

You have to do some extra work. The guy in the meeting-room of the highwind  has a useful script with PHS. But using tents, well i show you my mog script:

FF7 Tools / re-sized field models
« on: 2012-08-25 05:13:20 »
After I see an end to my project, I share to you my list of the changed model heights.

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AufRKTaWMInsdENDUEJlVnZwTFRGOWxqcnRFcnJoc0E&pli=1#gid=0

Actually the only thing I want to do was making the German text better, but after start rewriting I saw that I have to do many other things. So I started using Makou-Reaktor  and with it I was able to do changes in the model heights. The list is not finished and it contains not all changes I have done (the product of absence of time and laziness ). I hope some one find a way to put all the values automatically to the game, if not, well the product is worth the effort.
Before:

After:


2447
I started experimenting with mogs as save-points using the skript and text of the beholders in ancient tempel to create save-points like FF9. If you activate contact with field models it is impossible for the player to reach the save point.  Instead he will see the text with the questions.

Looks good.
The only issue of APZ Cloud is his head. He looks like a boy and not like a strong man,
I think a smaller head would be better. That´s why never used the model for battle
