Title: FF7 - Audio music mod - full orchestra HQ
Post by: Ragnarok1 on 2016-05-25 09:53:25
Hi,

Apologies if this has been asked multiple times but here goes:

Is there a mod which substitutes the FF7 music for high quality full orchestra versions such as the reunion tracks:

https://itunes.apple.com/gb/album/final-fantasy-vii-reunion/id70983696

I have installed 7th Heaven and tried out the Anxious Hearts music soundtrack mod but it still sounds synthetic and synth like - Is that how it should sound? Or maybe the mod isn't working right and I should be hearing real orchestral instruments?!

Any help is greatly appreciated!! :mrgreen:

Yes.  Anxious Heart.  And yeah - that'show it should sound when you select the correct option.

thanks for the reply, just to be clear... Anxious Heart is the reunion tracks as in full orchestra recordings and not synthesized/midi? There are loads of different anxious heart options - is the top selection the reunion tracks?

If so, i must have installed it incorrectly! Do i need to extract the mod file and copy across the files into the vgmstream folder? Or should 7th heaven point to the correct files automatically?

thanks

Read the readme and don't use 7th Heaven for this particular mod.  Use my actual installer.

Edited.

Please don't tell people not to use 7th Heaven. It's the only feasible way to ensure intercompatibility between mods. If you don't want to provide support for it yourself, that's fine. That's what we have EQ2Alyza et al for. But outright dismissing it is bad for the ff7 modding community as a whole.

Him using my installer does not stop him using 7th Heaven for everything else.  I can and will argue that 7th Heaven has its downsides - this thread is proof of it.  And there was another that was similar - where it did not emulate exactly what my installer does, and so options my installer gives were left out.

How does it change anything if he uses my installer?  I also had no way of knowing that he was using 7th Heaven and hadn't tried mine when he started his bug report - which is another annoyance. Anxious Heart is Anxious Heart.  That's what it is.  If 7th Heaven isn't doing what my installer does, then that's a big problem.

Edit.  I don't mean to be grouchy, but being told that the official installer shouldn't be recommended for my own mod is a touch silly.  If you thought I was telling him not to use 7th Heaven at all for any mod, then there has been a miscommunication, because that isn't what I meant.

My apologies, I misunderstood. Yeah, AH installer is one of the few that won't produce any conflicts when used alongside 7H. In general I still recommend it over Reunion installer unless people only want Reunion mods because otherwise there will be conflicts, but for AH it shouldn't make a difference.

OK I've edited the post to make it a little clearer and requested that 7th Heaven makes things clearer too.
