Traffic has been dwindling the past couple of years. A lot of that is due to much of the modding day-to-day having moved to our discord server. So if you're wondering where everyone is, you can get in on the conversations over at https://discord.com/invite/fyE2Vk2

That isn't to say not to post here. Not at all. The forums aren't going anywhere. You can continue to use them as you always have if you like. Mod homepage threads are still kept up-to-date, threads are still going and FAQ's are a handy resource, but if you want to talk mods, that's where a lot of it's happening. And if you need mod/technical support, you'll get it there way faster and more efficiently.

7th Heaven Catalog Mod Submission/Update Pushing

If you are a mod developer and have a mod you'd like to put in the catalog or need to update your existing mod, this can now be done entirely by you without the need for a "catalog maintainer" or moderator.

The catalog is stored on our GitHub and anyone with an account can create a pull request. These pull requests will then be reviewed and approved by one of us with a single click. You no longer need to wait for one of us to have free time to communicate back and forth and put together your catalog entry. This should enable mods to be updated with much more frequency.

To do this:
-Create a https://github.com/ account if you don't already have one.

-Go to https://github.com/tsunamods-codes/7th-Heaven-Catalogs/blob/master/catalogs/qhimm.xml

-Click on the pen button to edit the catalog xml. (Since you've likely made a mod with a mod.xml file, you should be very familiar with how it works.)


-Once finished, click the save changes at the bottom of the page and follow the prompts to complete your pull request.

-While your pull request is under review, it will appear here: https://github.com/tsunamods-codes/7th-Heaven-Catalogs/pulls. If there are any questions or issues with your pull request, you will be notified here.

And that's it!

Please use DirectX12 as your Graphics API under Game Driver settings in 7th Heaven.

For whatever reasons, I need to start over with a fresh install.

If you have modded your game folder before, particularly with installers like Bootleg Configurator, The Reunion, etc., then the registry keys aren't cleaned properly to work with 7th Heaven.

1. Uninstall Final Fantasy VII.
2. Delete all the junk files in the game directory.
2. Run this to clean FF7 registry keys: DOWNLOAD
3. Run CCleaner (optional but free): DOWNLOAD
4. Install Final Fantasy VII and begin at STEP 1 again.

Battle encounters are showing the wrong enemies.

Ensure your mods are in the correct load order. Do this automatically using the button.
Beyond, that ensure there are not conflicting mods. Particularly any difficulty mods and ESUI Controller Addon.
If all that fails, it's a good indication that you need to start modding with a fresh install (no previous FF7 modded installs). Follow the procedure above for setting up a fresh install.

Disable VSync.

I get significant slow downs on some screens.

Turn off animated textures within the SYW5 Fields mod.

Formerly known as "Bonez' Sound Effect Suite". Cosmo Memory uses the new FFNx SFX engine and is an entirely new mod rebuilt from the ground up with a ton of new features. This project started out in 2018 as a little mod to just replace the FF7 menu sounds with the menu sounds from FFXIII. Since that time, it has evolved into something far more... After following the community and modding the game for several years, I noticed the graphical and musical mods were growing and advancing but the sound effects department was totally stalled. I mean, it's an entire 1/3 of what your senses are taking in, along side the visuals and music! I wanted something to match the beautiful/advanced graphical and musical mods provided by the very talented authors/creators of this community... So, I present to you Cosmo Memory: A Complete Sound Overhaul.

Features:
  • Replaces/updates all 724 original sound effects including battle, magic, enemy skills, limit breaks, summons, world
  • NEW Ambient sounds for every field and battle scene in the game
  • Ground-conditional footstep sound effects for every field and world map
  • Replaces all sound effects in cutscene videos (Compatible with any FMV video)
  • Voiced attacks or "grunts" for all party members
  • Shuffled battle impact sounds as well as other select sounds randomly so you never hear the same exact sound twice in a row
  • 3 selectable menu sound sets
  • Complete compatibility with New Threat, Echo-S and any other mod
  • Each feature is optional

Launch Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zt0GRSb8KcA

Changelog:
1.1
-Center battle sfx option
-Rework volume of all sounds to match originals
-Highwind worldmap sounds
-Remove rarely used menu sound sets
-Various changes/fixes

IMPORTANT
-This mod REQUIRES 7th Heaven 2.4+ and FFNx 1.11+
You can download the latest 7th Heaven here : https://github.com/tsunamods-codes/7th-Heaven/releases/tag/canary

-For best experience, use headphones and set music volume to ~60%

Special Thanks:
TrueOdin - the FFNx sound engine
vertex2995 - world map footsteps

Releases / [FF7PC] Bonez' Avatars 1.2 - Deprecated
« on: 2020-12-01 10:11:54 »
This mod has been deprecated and replaced by Finishing Touch
I thought it was crazy that no one had taken the Testuya Nomura character sketches and turned them into transparent, portrait-style avatars (with the exception of the Zendar avatars, but they're set in opaque white circles), so I took a shot at them and I think they turned out pretty well.


1.1: Cleaned up some transparency issues, adjusted the saturation on the less-saturated avatars, automatic DDS selection.
1.2: Moved Cloud over a tad. The sliver of his hand showing was driving me nuts!

This mod has been deprecated and replaced by Cosmo Memory.

An optional add-on for Bonez' Sound Effect Suite that plays physical attack sounds randomly from pools of slightly different sounds so repeating actions don't sound the exact same and never plays the same sound twice in a row, as is done in modern games. So when Cloud hits someone with 4xCut or certain Limit Breaks for example, each slashing sound will sound slightly different leading to more realism! Every physical attack and impact in the game is randomized with pools of at least 4 sounds each, as well as a few other appropriate world sounds like doors, buttons, foot steps, etc...

FF7 also has a few missing sound effects (they're technically not missing. They're in the game. The game engine just refuses to play them for some reason) that you may have noticed before like Leviathan's wave. This mod has the ability to play those missing sounds, so I put them back in - the ones I'm aware of off the top of my head, anyway. If I discover more or if anyone knows of anymore, let me know and I'll add them back in as well.

If shuffled sounds are too loud or too soft, change the volume of 7th Heaven in your Windows Volume Mixer accordingly. Changing the volume of SFX in-game will nave no effect on shuffled sounds.


Randomized sounds:
Miss
Cloud Melee
Receive Melee Damage
Cloud Critical Melee
Receive Melee Damage 2
Field Kick
Aerith Melee
Field Button 1
Field Button 2
Land From Jump 1
Red 13 Melee
Honey Bee Smack
Field Door
Red 13 Critical Melee
Footsteps (President's entrance sounds awesome!")
Bing
Honey Bee Boop
Receive Melee Damage Small
Receive Cut Damage/Sword Impact
Receive Stab Damage
Bite/Lay Flat
Land From Jump 2
Cait Sith Melee
Tifa Punch
Cait Sith Melee 2
Yuffie Critical Melee
Cid Mop Melee
Yuffie Melee
Cid Stab Melee
Tifa Beat Rush Melee
Tifa Kick Melee
Receive X-Small Cut Damage
Sephiroth Melee
Sword on Metal
Squats

Missing sounds added back in:
Leviathan's Wave
Part of Neo Bahamut/Part of Omnislash

Preview Video: https://youtu.be/YSeDtksaB0s



After the game is closed, 7th Heaven must be restarted before the sound shuffler will work again. There is a reminder window that pops up when the game closes.

Thanks to ficedula and Martin Barker for the program Ultrasound for which this mod relies and thanks to unab0mb for helping to get Sound Shuffler working correctly with 7th Heaven. Without them, this mod would not be possible




Installation:
This mod REQUIRES 7th Heaven 2.2.3.522 or later. Available here: http://forums.qhimm.com/index.php?topic=19533.0
Due to the nature of how this mod works, packing it in an IRO file is not possible, so:
Automatic installation (Recommended):
Download and install automatically from the Mods of the Round catalog in 7th Heaven the same as you would with an IRO.
Manual installation is a little different:
1. Create a new folder in your 7th Heaven mods directory called "Bonez' Sound Shuffler Add-on"
2. Download the 7zip file from https:///
3. Extract the contents of the 7zip file into the "Bonez' Sound Shuffler Add-on" folder you created.
4. Open/Restart 7th Heaven. If the mod is not automatically imported, Turn on "Import Mods From Library Automatically" in 7th Heaven's General Settings and restart 7th Heaven again.

The goal of this mod is to update the spell names to their modern counterparts (E.g., Bolt2 > Thundara) as well as provide more informative spell/item info (E.g., "lightning element attack" > "Deals moderate lightning damage"). All spell names are real/official names you can find on finalfantasy.fandom.com.

Attention: If you are using New Threat, you must select the New Threat option in the mod config. If you're seeing random overpowered enemies, this is the reason. Also, this mod is likely not compatible with any other difficulty mods besides New Threat.

This mod has been deprecated and replaced by Cosmo Memory

This project started out about a year ago as a little mod to just replace the FF7 UI sounds with the UI sounds from FFXIII. Since that time, it has evolved into something far more... After following the community and modding the game for several years, I noticed the graphical and musical mods were growing and advancing but the sound effects department was totally stalled. I mean, it's an entire 1/3 of what your senses are taking in, besides the visuals and music! I wanted something to match the beautiful/advanced graphical and musical mods provided by the very talented authors/creators of this community... So, I present to you most complete sound effect replacement mod currently available!

The goal of this mod is to give the sound effects of FF7 a complete overhaul/update with carefully chosen, professional quality, accurately timed, equalized, and edited sounds; on a scale previously never achieved. I'm very proud of what I've managed to accomplished so far and I hope everyone enjoys it as much as I do.

This mod currently replaces/updates ~480 magic/battle/world sound effects with many more to come.

*Disclaimer: This is NOT the same mod of mine that is included in the Qhimm Media mod. That mod only changes the menu sounds. Some people are apparently under the impression that they are one and the same.

Be sure this mod is above any other sound mods in your load order.
I've tested as many sounds as I could and have found no issues. If you run across any, please let me know here
Depending on the music mod you use/don't use, you may need to adjust the music volume down in game. -Better to be too low than too high! Eg; I use EDMusic and Tsuna Arranged and I find SFX:100% and MUSIC:70% to be perfect.
