I don't get the point of removing my presentation, it's only a few second FMV to show you're using my work...

This might sound a little odd but for me it kind of breaks the immersion by reminding me that my game is modded. My favorite kinds of mods are ones that just seem like they "belong" in the game.

I know you took an immense amount of time creating these and I'm very grateful (Seriously, THANK YOU for being so meticulous) but for me, the intro feels out of place, and since we're all modders here, finding a way to have what we like is what we do!  ;D

Is this for that first movie that plays with Cait Siths theme or does it disable the actual credits with the Prelude song?

semi transparent pixels are not game friendly.

Is that specifically for the chocobo minigames or are you speaking generally? I ask because a lot of menus/mods have been created with partial transparency.

Hey Satsuki,

Is it possible to disable the opening credits for the mod? The animation that plays when launching the game.

Thank you


Created a custom intro for this exact purpose, simply load it in your mod order above Satsuki's, enjoy! https://mega.nz/file/rotwFY7D#HPx5KcM4_yojMuJqaU39y4U-uUBdjuntrru1AB4o3Gg

Root of microSD card\sxos\titles\0100A5B00BDC6000\romfs\ff7\workingdir\data\lang-en\kernel\KERNEL.BIN

This is going to sound crazy but try changing the file to lowercase and see if it works.

At the very least, it should crash if it doesn't like it. If it doesn't crash, there's likely something else entirely going on. You should take other steps to make sure LayeredFS is working as intended.

EDIT: Also, strongly consider upgrading to latest Atmosphere. I used to use sxOS and I promise you it created more problems for me than anything else.

Please show us the folder hierarchy you are using (show us in what folder on the Switch you are putting kernel.bin)

Due to bad coding in the original game I'm encountering a few obstacles. Here, you can see tons of misalignment, bad cropping, distorted texture display, unconsistent X,Y placements..

Yeah dude, my single least favorite thing I encountered when working onthe Remake font for ESUI. So many inconsistencies and misalignments inherent in the original. Often felt like I was being punished for being consistent with my own measurements, to have to misalign my own work in order to get it to display cleanly. *smh*

This error simply occurs intermittently. Just run it a couple times until it works, its not a complete failure to run error, only a temporary one. I don't know the mechanics behind the issue, I just know you have to try to run the game a couple times for it to "hook".

Sometimes it runs first time, sometimes it take a couple tries. At leas that's been my experience.

The man returns!  ;D ;D

Thanks for the update!

I took it down temporarily as it's all but done and release is imminent.

HYPE IMMINENT

Now that I think about it. I don't think Reunion implements any disc checks. I'll have to test that out.

Go for it, try it out if you think you'll like it. Letting you know in advance though that it doesn't play well with nearly any other mod due to the way its implemented. Hilariously, sometimes it doesn't even play well with itself.

12
Alright that's fair. The way this game is coded, it shouldn't even have mods. I'm just upset that a lot of mods are like "use 7th heaven or JUST ours, that's it!" I hate the fact 7th heaven requires admin access to work. Like wasn't there a way around that? There must've been one. It totally messes up my game flow when I'm using steam and picture mode. I can't have that. So I just won't use it.

And the fact the disc checks are still active on an exe after all these decades. I thought someone would've just said "Yo, people can buy this game on steam, the disc version is ancient, I'm getting rid of the disc check. It's an inconvenience." I'm not the programmer though, that's on them. It's on me to figure out ways around that.

Frustrating is all.

A lot of mods can be applied manually, but it would be up to you to educate yourself on how to do everything the long way without causing numerous crashes. Once devs figure out an easier/more convenient way to do something, they move on from the older, more complicated one. Keeping support for the most tedious way to do something seems backwards, imo. In this way, 7H has evolved to fit that need. That it requires a check for a legitimate version of the game has been (from what I've been told) a necessary measure in keeping this long-running community in the company's good (or at least indifferent) graces.
If any of us garnered enough attention with a mod that led to company scrutiny of the community, the very last thing this place would need is finding out that the software distributed here made it possible to disable legitimacy checks. We'd have no one to blame for over a decade of progress being flushed down the toilets just cause people don't want to pay $4-12 for a game. In the name of self preservation, touching that as little as possible is the LEAST we could do.


That being said, if someone had a specific setup for how they like to play their games, with very little flexibility/adaptation-to-change/circumstances on their part, having them getting uppity at a mod developer for not catering to their very specific quirk would seem a bit selfish, wouldn't you say? Don't know if that helps put it in perspective for you

Support / Re: ff7 international cd4 artwork - how to rip?
« on: 2021-03-07 11:59:44 »
You're in luck. I worked with Niemasd 2 years ago to rip the models from the bonus disk, we pretty much figured out how to rip everything else in the process.



https://mega.nz/file/joEmhZaT#UlRBF6eS2k1vaWjjA8JA65uCSV_3UistShbne3g9lHE

The above link has 3 folders:

Raw files extracted directly from the NPKs using niemasd's scripts

PSicture, a very old utility that browses raw psx files for viewable images

Model and texture rips for all but 2 of the viewable models (helicopter and car would not extract correctly)

In PSicture, simply scan any of the raw directories and it will generate a list of images you can save. Have fun!

Its wild that Ive never noticed this before, nor have a heard any mention of it anywhere, but there it is, impossible to miss now that I see it.  ???

As someone that enjoys making game-related things and has a lifelong love of FFVII, its hard for me to be anything but excited. Its exactly the kind of thing I'd love to have worked on and brought to reality.
Then again, I still play Smash with family members so its still relevant to me.

Topically, I'm able to dissociate "Nintendo the Creative Powerhouse" from "Corporate Nintendo and its Interests", understanding that we are talking about 2 different groups of people who answer to and work under completely different heads.

Hair of the dog and all that.

But I only experience legitimate existential dread on marijuana. Along with other unpleasant things... Can't smoke the stuff... Wish I could. It looks like fun for everyone else lol.
Have you tried switching dealers. Sounds like yours is too strong or maybe even laced

Yeah, its not one-size-fits-all. There's tons of different strains and they all have their own effect, they vary quite wildly.
Some absolutely slump me and put me to sleep, while others will have me conversing with friends quite animatedly. Some have me thinking back on missteps and taking myself down a peg, while others will have me thinking back and feeling resolve to do better in the future. It can work for you, but it does require a bit of extra effort on your part.

My younger brother once told me "You get out of it what you put into it" and that's really stuck with me as profound, but it only goes as far as how a particular strain is meant to work.

WIP / Re: FF7:Remake OST in FF7 PC proof of concept
« on: 2020-06-30 11:01:36 »
Could you help me identify the "chosen by the planet" tracks? For the life of me, I can't find them.

There's one version during
Spoiler: show
Cloud's Nibelheim flashback in Sector 8
and one right after you
Spoiler: show
encounter Red XIII
.
The 2nd one is clearer.
Anyway, someone already put them in a mod, its been floating around. Google "Remusic" FF7

Maybe it will give EA the right ideas this time.
I wouldn't hold your breath on EA unless you want to die blue in the face

Personally, I'd be glad to never have to read another word he writes. Interacting with his existence has nearly always turned out to be a singularly unpleasant experience for me, and has always left me with a bad taste in my mouth.
Well shot of him and good riddance.

Yes, it is technically possible, but why would you want to make more work for yourself??

WIP / Adding new music IDs
« on: 2020-06-04 05:30:26 »
Piggybacking off a request from Meteormancer early last month, I am looking for info on the method to add new music IDs to the game, with the intention of adding new tracks to certain fields/battles with Makou Reactor. I have accumulated a list of the already existing IDs:

My hope is that once the process of adding new IDs is clear and documented here for others, some research can begin on how to implement a Remake-style cross-fade of the games music, for a somewhat smooth blend of field music into battle music. I could be wrong on how this functions, but my understanding is that there is a "timestamp" value in the games field music that the engine hooks/remembers before beginning the screen whirl into battle music, which it then returns to upon battle completion. I want to utilize this value to begin battle music playback from the same "timestamp", instead of starting each battle track from the beginning. Counting on Qhimm's many and varied brain trust to offer me info on the viability and implementation of this type of music system. Thanks, all.

I've heard that speedhack is hella buggy, I would be careful with it.

You're not doing anything wrong at all. Reunion just doesn't play well with nearly anything, sometimes even itself.
