perfect. Just need to recolor the black lettering white and animate it. I'm not sure where my animation tool is right now, but once i get it animated I'll need someone to convert it to avi and tweak it or whatever.

The one thing I did find that is in 720p is an eidos montreal logo on youtube. I fugre you could extract it and use video editing tools to remove the montreal moniker. As for the squaresoft logo, I'm sure there are high res iterations of it already online. All that would be left to do is animate it and convert it to Indeo avi.

indeo?  why you using that?

If I'm not correct isnt that the codec FF7 uses for its FMVs?

Yea I get it. But the original eidos logo for FF7 is....just...so....BAD.

If you wish to save time, as well as your eyeballs, just delete the logo videos, and the game skips them.

If I'm not correct isnt that the codec FF7 uses for its FMVs?

Aali's driver support H.264, so that's your best bet.

jenova_e.avi Italian
jenova_e.avi Russian
jenova_e.avi Spanish

ending2.avi Italian
ending2.avi Russian
ending2.avi Spanish

I have the German PSX version of FF7. If I provide my FMV files, could someone reconstruct those 2 videos in German language? I would be very grateful!

This project is completed... all my files and so forth are deleted and I am not personally doing anymore languages.  Someone may be able to make them for you based on an ordinary restoration process.  Not me though, I'm sorry..

Can someone slap me please? Or at least tell me where I'm going wrong.

The deal is this; I put the new FMVs in a movie folder under the main FF7 folder, and did a bit of this and that to the registry. Well, something is wrong with it, because what I get is an APP log full of errors opening movie files. It's like this; I run ff7.exe, and it skips straight to the credits. I blame the registry for that.

Yep. My disc is inserted in the F drive. That's for sure. And I'm 100% sure the movie path is where I installed the new movies in. But no, they won't even dare to load up. I've been trying with a dummy ISO because it doesn't contain the old crappy movies. (I still can't tell the difference cuz I haven't seen the new quality live.)

Can someone tell me what exactly is it that I need to fix here, and if the AppPath and DataPath values are wrong too?


EDIT: Never mind. Stupid me tried to use a separate reg edit file to do the work for me, but it was after I posted this that I realized it can't touch something that needs admin rights.  :-[

This mod is 28.39% larger than the original, Not 22%.
Sorry I'm  bit of a maths geek, You done your maths in reverse.

Nice work though.

Shouldn't be a bat file anywhere. It's just a .exe file and a few .bin files

EDIT: What version of Windows are you running?

windows 7 64bit

the bat file was inside the movies folder. I just changed it to a txt file and it says this

Code: [Select]
copy fcar.avi car_1209.avi /y
not sure what that would be for

EDIT: Is there a specific folder I need to have the exe put the movie folder

It is making the duplicate of 1 of the FMV to save space.  2 of the FMV in the game are the same file.  The bat file should be deleted, it has nothin to do with your problem.  Make sure your registry movie path is correct and ends with \

Here is a text version of a .reg file.
Code: [Select]
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Square Soft, Inc.\Final Fantasy VII]
"MoviePath"="C:\\Program Files (x86)\\Square Soft, Inc\\Final Fantasy VII\\Movies\\"

Open notepad, Paste this information into it. Save as. change it from .txt to all file types. and name it

Movie fix.reg

Or download it from here: http://www.mediafire.com/?9bk5nv5eub40u1v

EDIT: Of course make sure your movies are in the above mentioned location. (%PathToFF7%\Movies\)

You just double click the .reg file, it'll warn you not to add just any old reg files, just click okay. And you'll be good to go
