It's not a "virus website" (although it is shitty and annoying). It's adfly. a service that shows an ad (to make money) when you click a link. The ad could be spam or malware or Coca-Cola, but you don't click on that. You wait a second and click the "skip ad" button once it pops up.

Ah I see, my bad then. It's a bit too late since I finished the game already but that's good to know I guess.

WIP / Re: I'd Like to start a WIP on Character Models

I haven't found anything from what I've checked on here.

I've been sifting around a bit on Google and the search results  but I haven't seen anything pertaining to a mod that would allow you to soft reset to the main menu of Final Fantasy 9 using a keyboard button or controller mapped to said button. I'm wondering if it would actually be possible or if there's a mod made for it already somewhere on the internet that I haven't checked.

  It is DEFINITELY rewritten with my own flavor. But I went out of my way to maintain the original sound and characterization of each of the main characters. All of the characters have a greater degree of depth and maturity than the original, but they still maintain their original identity. As I mentioned in the description, the greatest deviations were with Headmaster Cid and Seifer. Rinoa has also received a lot of attention, but that is primarily in terms of adding to her backstory and motivation, not her personality.

  I do not speak Japanese, but I had originally attempted to use a number of 'more accurate' versions of the script for reference and inspiration. But everything I found was so strikingly similar to the original that I gave up on that very quickly.
  The version we received was remarkably faithful as a translation. I would only argue that it was fairly poor as a localization.

  And also, despite what you may have heard, the great Ted Woolsey did not actually appear to me in a vision, providing me with his own immaculate localization. That was a joke.

Ah that makes sense, to be honest I got the sense of that as well when I began translating some of the text with DeepL, it didn't to me that it needed much improving as I played on. I hope you get a lot of eyes on this mod, I could only imagine all the work you've put into this, and I'm also glad there's dedicated people that have worked to make FF8 improved since it's releases on Steam. Hope your future endeavors work out for you. :D

WIP / Alternate GF Profiles For SeeDReborn
« on: 2022-07-08 22:58:03 »
Part 2 of my last WIP for replacing character profiles for Guardian Forces this time.

The pictures are compatible with SeeDReborn mod paired with the 2013 Final Fantasy 8 Steam game (It could also maybe work with Seed Reborn but I haven't tested it since I don't have FF8 Remastered on PC). So long as you replace the gf_big00_13 and gf_big01_13 pngs inside the gf file that's also inside the textures file then you should be good.

None of the images in the pictures are made by me and all the links to the sources of where I found them can be found down below the pictures.

Troubleshooting / SeeDReborn Picture Troubles (Solved)
« on: 2022-06-27 20:25:03 »
I've been attempting to edit the character portraits of the GFs, but once I've edited the two pictures and replaced them they never seem to show up in the 2013 version of the game. :/ I haven't edited anything besides the pictures themes (how they look I mean). The dimensions are correct, it still has the same name, it still has the black border on the bottom like before, so I'm just kind of confused, because I've been able to successfully change the portrait pictures of the main cast.

Sorry if this isn't the right section to put this in, but I figured I might get an answer here sooner than just posting it on SeeDReborn's comment section.

Edit: So I managed to figure it out, I had to copy and paste the custom image that had been overlaid on the old one to a new clean .png and removed the black square at the bottom, but renamed it to be the same as the old images used before. That seemed to have fixed it, weirdly enough.

I've been busy for the past couple of days Frankensteining my own version of Final Fantasy 8 but whenever I search for any redone translations for Final Fantasy 8 I keep hitting a lot of dead ends with little answers. I was hoping to see if anyone else has finished doing a complete translation before I attempt do it on my own (Not using Google Translate, but a better program). Any help would be much appreciated.

Update: So I started translating Squall starting out in Balamb however, I lost all motivation and the want to as I played on, but if there is a want for me to give it a go again with the DeepL translator I'll probably consider it, but just know that most the dialogue is pretty accurate already to what have.

I haven't read all the comments earlier so I apologize if this has been asked before, I didn't want to spoil myself on anything, but I was curious if this was a straight up retranslation that's accurate to the original Japanese script or the original translation rewritten with your own flavor to it?

Troubleshooting / Re: PS3 Controller

I know this is old but for anyone curious, you can use a PS3 controller on your PC and have it work, all you would need is the use of ScpToolkit and Xbox360 controller drivers installed

WIP / Alternate Character Profiles (3D & Regular)
« on: 2022-06-23 01:49:01 »
Been working on these for most of the day and I thought I might as well share these, even though I'm not sure if someone has done something like this already

I used the first two with the SeeDReborn mod paired with the 2013 Final Fantasy 8 Steam game and you could probably do the same with the Remastered version. So long as you replace the pngs in the face_b00 and face_b01 files inside the fa file that's also inside the textures file then you should be good.

If you're wondering why I've shared the link to the site hosting the image and not this site itself, it's because I don't really know any good sites besides Imgur (that doesn't work for me) to use image links to would work with this site. Hope you guys enjoy :)

Alright, so this version has the icons, but the previous 3.5 version has the text in spanish that you're talking about. In order to copy/paste them to the new mod, you simply go into /textures/ic/iconflmaster/ and /textures/ic/iconfl02 and /textures/ic/iconfl03 and look for the icons and the text from the previous 3.5 mod and swap them out.
You'll need to do so for all of the files in the folders wherever those textures are to make sure you don't miss anything. Some aren't 100% needed, but I'm not sure which - it's been a very long time.

Ay, so I have a question about the previous versions of SeeDReborn, more specifically the 3.2 version of it, as whenever I open the link to try and download it for the fonts it has it brings me to a virus website. So I'm wondering if you would be able update it to have an alternate way of downloading the version or maybe there could be alternate fonts added in the future in the main version?  Regardless if you do or don't answer this I also wanted to say that I really like this mod and the variety it has with the menus and hope you keep up the good work with more mods in the future ^^
