The methods required to obtain the information in this thread are (in most cases) already available somewhere in old forum posts.  However, the actual information itself may not be - or might be exceedingly difficult to locate.  I'm working on a personal FFVII PSX Mod {*possibility of releasing publicly [**possibility of adapting a PC version of the mod once the PSX version is complete]}.  For my own purposes - and potentially for anyone looking to utilize Proud Clod and Wallmarket when developing PSX mods - my intent is to post some helpful information here.

Use "Enemy Skill" Animations for Player Spells - PSX

Is anyone aware of any hard guidelines for developing a FFVII PSX Mod that will work on an actual Playstation 1 without crashing?

I see that meesbaker has released some mods that are compatible with real hardware.  I've used a Gameshark Pro to alter attack animations, equipment stats, materia characteristics, enemy stats, and some other data that is stored in the kernel and scene without crashing the game.  I'm assuming I wouldn't be able to make thousands of adjustments to the kernel.bin and scene.bin and expect the game to play on the Playstation...but then again, maybe it is possible?

Depending on the limitations, I'd like to put together a simple difficulty mod that could run on real hardware.  Depending on what the limitations are (if anyone knows what they might be), I'd be willing to accept something as simple as adjusting the Level and HP on each enemy if that's all I can accomplish. 

Any guidance would be great.  If no one knows, then I will eventually do some testing and report back with my findings (although I can't imagine more than a handful of people have any interest in this information).  Thank you.

Hello All,

A few questions about modding Scene.bin

1.  Am I safe to replace scenes 0, 1 , 2, 3, 4, 238, 249, 250, 251, 252, 253, 254, and 255 without consequences?  (only thing I could foresee would be the debug room battle being replaced, or breaking the debug room battle for some reason)

2.  Scenes 62, and 63.  Apparently they contain four formations each for a singular level 7 Grunt in Shinra HQ - are Scenes 62 and 63 used anywhere?  Same question as above, can I replace these without consequence?

Basically, I'm just trying to determine which Scenes I can use to create different iterations of the same enemy.  Once upon a time, I knew the answer, but too many years have passed and I'm having to relearn FF7 modding.  Thank you!

Damn, the member retention here is impressive!  Glad to see the forums still healthy.  Not entirely sure what I intended with this, but just wanted to say Hi to everyone and mention that I may be visiting more often.  Happy modding everyone!

Completely Unrelated / Side Attack by 6 Frogs
« on: 2014-03-30 15:20:44 »
Playing VII, just got attacked on both sides by a total of 6 frogs in Gongaga area.  Selected some attacks for each party member to do at the beginning of the battle, proceeded to watch the frog's alternate Frog Jab and Frog Song for approximately 6 minutes.  Literally Frog Jabbing my party in the ass then Frog Songing them to sleep over and over again.  It was bizarre.

I decided that I'm going to either fix Lostwing, Finish Revisited, or Complete my JobClasskernelmod.  Which one do you want me to do?

Completely Unrelated / Know about Droid CPUs?
« on: 2013-08-24 06:46:54 »
I'm planning on selling my old crap tablet and purchasing another crap tablet (though slightly less runny).  In my research I am finding most of the feasible options I am finding run either the rk3066 (dual x 1.6mhz) or the A31 (quad x 1.5mhz).  The interwebs is frustratingly sparse in benchmark information about these two chips (if you find that's not the case, my hat is off to you).  I simply want to know how these two CPUs compare (and the corresponding GPUs [PowerVR SGX544MP vs Mali 400 {which claims 1GB dedicated memory...I have my doubts, but maybe this means something different than I interpret}]).  From what minimal information I've been able to acquire, it would seem the 3066 has more raw general processing functionality, but the A31 has better 3D Graphics performance.  In most cases the A31 seems to come out on top, but then again the Tablets utilizing this proc generally seem to be of lower quality than the ones I'm looking at that use the 3066.  Maybe the difference here is marginal, and I should lean towards the cheaper build with the A31, but my gut tells me that the better looking tablet with the 3066 would ultimately be the better choice.  Nobody I know has any useful insight to offer, but I figured someone here would be able to help.  To avoid vaguery, I'll post links to the two tabs I am strongly considering - though I predict some degree of heckling.  Oh well.

Completely Unrelated / Android RPGs
« on: 2013-08-03 01:52:04 »
Just trying out some RPGs for Android.  These Kemco games seem to be pretty good so far.  I had been playing Machine Knight and was liking it a lot.  I just got Infinite Dunamis, End of Aspiration (which also seems pretty good), Silver Nornir, Bond of the Skies, and Aeon Avenger - all Kemco.  I also enjoyed Inotia 3.  Really I'm probably only gonna play the ones that let me use my slide out keypad, just makes it so much easier to play. - - It'd be awesome if I could remap the keys!

Anyway, I was just curious if anyone had anything to say about these games, if anyone had any other good suggestions, and listing a few that some others could be interested in.  Anything anyone has to offer is appreciated!

Anyone using this?  Perhaps I've just descended a few dignity levels, but I randomly came across this and it basically emulates those old virtual pet things and adds a few cool new features.  Right now I have a Megadramon and an Angewomon, and I'm probably more excited about that than I should be  :P

Completely Unrelated / Ehrgeiz RPG: Look what I found
« on: 2013-07-18 04:57:54 »
I found my old Ehrgeiz disc today.  Popped it in and loaded up the RPG mode.  Forsaken Dungeon or whatever its called.  Well I make it to level 10 dungeon and I wipe out some beasties and they reward me with this!

Lol!, interesting glitch.  When equipped I've got about 41,869 HP and my Consumption Rate is 16,403.  Basically its a knife of invincibility because my HP and Hunger never deplete.  I can only cause 1 damage to every enemy, but still pretty sweet.  Oh it breaks if you attack with it after 4 strikes, even though it says it has 7/7 durability.  And your HP bar remains Black.  If it wasn't for trapdoors I could just run through the lower level dungeons and bring back awesome equipment lol.

I wish there were mods for this!

General Discussion / Tool Tutorials?
« on: 2013-07-10 05:57:13 »
Do we have tutorials for any of the tools anywhere; or has anyone made any?  I imagine that we're not only going to get a heightened interest in people who want to play modded 7, but also people that will be interested in making their own mods as well.  It seems like dozens of members have explained the same thing to so many people so many times that if some tutorials existed, it could make things easier on everyone.  I can only imagine how many posts would have been made in the past few days if not for Alyza's Bootleg Tutorial 0_0

Solved Problems / [SOLVED]ff7 Window Mode Troubles
« on: 2013-06-09 06:10:03 »
Hi guys.  I know I should have been able to fix or find the solution here somewhere, but I really haven't even played the PC version much, and I don't know if any of my issues are related to the fact it is a 2012 reelease that was Bootlegged to the old version.

-Windows 7 64-bit
-Running 7 through Bootlauncher
-Game runs fine in Fullscreen
-Playing with settings to try to get functional windowed mode results in:  Low Resolution blue and grey (16 color mode?) window that only displays a portion of the screen; black screen in window that is size of fullscreen
-AMD MSI 6670
-I've got AMD vision

*Have tried to capture video.  Shows black screen in window, sorry.

not sure what else you need

I don't really know much about what I'm doing with PC version, let alone with Bootloader add-on, and whether rerelease affects any of the issues I'm having.  At the same time, I'm not inept when it comes to configuring graphics options.  Not sure what the problem is.

Please let me know what other information you require OR point me to the proper thread and I will fix my own problem.  Thanks guys.

Completely Unrelated / Work -_-
« on: 2013-05-30 18:47:10 »
I've got like an hour of work left.  If I already did about 140% of a typical days work do I need to be productive for the next 60 minutes lol?  Someone come decide whether this kid needs special ed support in all his classes or just math (its actually about 48 times more complicated than that...but without typing here for that 60 remaining minutes could never adequately explain in a few words).  Well...guess I'll just go and be minimally productive - the past three days have involved like 5 or 6 days worth of work!!!

Completely Unrelated / Random FFVII Thoughts
« on: 2013-04-25 02:05:39 »
Little boy Cloud is wimp.
As gets older, decides doesn't want to be a wimp.
Will join SOLIDER.
Becomes an MP.
Won't reveal identity to anyone at Nibelheim.
Fails to save Tifa.
Has Limit Break or goes Super Saiyan or Seph just shouldn't have acted like he was invinsible.
Gets dunked in a tank of Mako.
Jenova cells.
Zack dies.
Cloud still hasn't regained thoughtful conciousness.
Tifa finds him.
He thinks he is Zack?  Acts like him.
So...needs to show Tifa he isn't a wimp.

So, at the beginning of the game - its the first time Cloud's done anything thinking hes Zack, and the first time hes done anything since he has gotten the Mako dousing and Jenova Cells.

**I'm not clear on how much time Zack and Cloud spent in the Nibel Mansion basement.  How long it took them to get from Nibelheim to Midgar.  And how long it took Cloud to be found by Tifa.  I think there are enough variables to make different time ranges all seem plausible.  I forget, do those documents in the basement indicate how long ago the subjects escaped?**

Which also means that Zack had only died...what?  a few days earlier?  a week or two maybe?  when Cloud meets Aeris.  And he shows up acting exactly like Zack.

Through the game he goes several different kinds of crazy.
Reunion/Jenova Crazy.
Track down Sephiroth Crazy (separate from Jenova crazy).
Who am I/Who is Zach Crazy.
Catatonic Schizophrenic.
and Journey into the Subconcious in the Lifestream.

And then after the Lifesteam, he comes back with a new personality.  It isn't any of the previous ones.  So who is this new Cloud that we finish the game with? 

So i guess it goes, Young Wimp Cloud, Older Wimp Cloud, Comotose Cloud, Zack Cloud, Confused Cloud, Catatonic Cloud, Mysterious New Guy Cloud.

I just finished the Ancient Temple on my current playthrough and I just found myself laughing at how crazy this character is.

General Discussion / Give Fort Condor $$$$
« on: 2013-04-14 02:59:26 »
Anything happen when you give Fort Condor funds for their war?  I haven't noticed anything whether I give them cash or not.


@DLPB:  Oh really?  I see.  Well then they will be getting some of my cash.  Gotta make sure I get that Super Ball!  or you mean......they only fight without me when i am actually there.  I can still miss the battles if Im not coming to chill at fort condor?  lame

I think I've only ever managed to take part in every single fort condor battle in one gameplay once.  That would be a good mod, to alter the items you recieve for Fort Condor wins.

General Discussion / Cloud Field Model Gone :(
« on: 2013-04-08 23:13:29 »
To those of you who play VII PSX on ePSXe.  You know that thing that happens sometimes where Cloud's field model disappears...

Well it happened and I cannot remember how I get him back.  I know this has happened to me dozens of times and usually swapping party members a bit and walking between a few screens will get him back.  I'll probably figure it out right after I post this, but in case I don't, I'm sure other people have experienced this.


Got it.  Thanks to LazyBastard

For anyone else who ever experiences this problem.

In-Town Character Graphic Mods


Err...not initiating events :(  Spoke too soon.

EDIT 3:  Fixed it by going into Debug Room and then talking to the right people to place me where I was lol.  This has saved me from breaking my saves so many times.

General Discussion / LostWing vs Revisited Indecision!
« on: 2013-03-13 01:26:55 »
I just started a new game of Lost Wing.  I want to play Revisited.  Whichever one I play, I intend to play through to the end.  If I do so, I plan to keep a log of gltiches/bugs/incompleteness.  Afterwards I may give LostWing a facelift...or complete...or come closer to completing Revisited.  But Revisited is incomplete and has so many more bugs!  But Lost Wing is older and not as much fun!  What do I do? (damn that Job Class Kernel! It's only like 10% complete at best).  I'm only at Don Corneo's Mansion right now...I don't wanna miss out on the Guard Golem, Dual Moth Slashers, and Air Buster Replacement! but I don't want to replay the beginning of the game again lol.  Dammit!

Anyone hear of/use Ting Cellular Service?

Internet says great Customer Service, Sprint Network Primary, but connects to Verizon for Voice if no Sprint Signal.  Low Cost.

Completely Unrelated / GBC Emu for Android (save states?!)
« on: 2012-08-16 02:58:20 »
So I know I can buy GBCoid full version and do everything I want.  But until mid-September I am gonna be hurting for money (yes to the point that I don't wanna spend $3 on GBCoid full version).  I've spent a good deal of time this evening trying to find an alternate GBC emulator that has the capability to SAVE!!!  I tried about 4 different free gbc emulators and none of them allowed me to save.  So as always, when in doubt, ask ppl on qhimm.  Thanks.
