keep in mind it may be impossible for controller buttons to work without misalignments with ESUI controller button mod, the controller button mod that will allow these buttons to display (the aforementioned ESUI controller buttons mod) expects character spacing that is either identical to ESUI's font, or there is another version that expects exact vanilla spacing - since this mod is neither of those the controller icons on the font sheet will be a moot point outside of Reunion until the controller buttons mod is made to accept a custom spacing set (or a lot of manual, technical work is done... one of my UI mods, DFUI, has this same issue)

Hey Ori, thanks for responding man! So let me explain my mod setup, since I've been shuffling back and forth between so many different things. Right now I got,

Satsuki's SYWV5
New Threat latest
ffnx latest canary

That's it. Maybe I need some more mods? Like this ESUI? I don't know if it's compatible with the above mods though. Is it? I don't mind the spacing issue, just thought I'd mention it. I'm just a bit confused on how to proceed. I remember when I was using Reunion, there were a lot of those font mods like DFUI and Vanilla something, but there's no non-reunion version of them. At least I couldn't find. So far all I got is what Aavock and Satsuki have.

(I feel like I'm tinkering more now instead of playing the game. Hehe. It's all good.)

You need to edit the windows.bin file. This one should do it.
This requires text editong, I believe Makou Reactor can do the trick.
Manipulating boxes dimensions requires hex editing the ff7.exe file, Cheat Engine is the tool.

Alright, I'll try your windows.bin aavock. So what's this about Makou Reactor. Another mod? Man I gotta make a list. And now there's hex editing? Really? I been talking with Sega Chief, he said you could use hext files to modify the exe. Is that only with reunion? So ffnx can't do that? Huh.

(Btw, thanks for all the help Aavock, appreciate it.)

All right, in this pack you'll find the updated fonts including minor fixes and corrected shadows.

Also, Kuraudo.'s request is done for Italians users.

And finally a a New Threat version with ◯,✖,▲, ◼ and directional buttons as placeholders just to show how easy it is to customize the textures with all the buttons you want.


Now, back to my chocobos!

Aavock, thanks! It's looking so much better. I noticed some spacing issues, so probably still a work in progress. Got some pictures.




(I don't know if you plan to make this menu show the ps1 buttons. Thought I'd ask.)


(Here's the spacing issue.)

No you don't get it.
I have the Aavock menu included in pack
The external texture are used over internal texture
As the psx button replace some letters in the font, the NT mod button are overwritten with Aavock HD texture as it should be.
The only way to use Aavock texture + psx button will be to have those buttons in the Aavock texture file (replacing the corresponding letter as in the NT mod)

So from what I'm getting, Aavock hasn't implemented the psx buttons yet. That's why everything's referencing the stock pc button layout. But NT expects the psx button layout. So I just gotta wait for Aavock to implement his upscaled psx buttons. Right? The previous reply by Aavock said it's simple and it looks like he'll get on it. So we're good?

I got no problem with your pack, Satsuki, overwriting NT. I prefer the upscaled backgrounds, etc. Just got NT for difficulty.

Alright let me reply.

Aavock, thanks for getting back to me! So I'll just have to wait for you to redraw those psx buttons then? I can do that, not a problem. I'll keep a look out when you or Satsuki update your graphics pack.

Sega Chief, so I took a look inside Satsuki's SYWV5/direct folder. He only has char in there, no menu. So your menu_us.lgp should be preserved, and not be overwritten. Right? Actually looking inside the data folder, I can't find a char folder at all, which .lgp would that be inside? I had the same issue when I was using your mod, and Satsuki's, with 7th heaven. So it's not a stand alone conflicting problem. Only time, I didn't have the problem was when I was using The Reunion, but I was using V4 of Satsuki's upscaled graphics, which didn't include any font or menu upscaling.

The NT Mod should come with a texture file that alters some texture sheets so that button icons are displayed instead of the native PC icons in the screenshot. I guess they seem to have been lost somehow in that particular install or are perhaps missing from the current build (will need to check). In the New_Threat_2.0/Direct/Menu folder there should be a bunch of .tex files (should probably also move discussion of this over to the NT thread).

Sega Chief, I've actually gone back to the standalone New Threat along with the standalone Satsuki's install, along with the canary build of FFNx. I did not have this issue with The Reunion, but that had Satsuki's version 4 which didn't have the UI and Avatar mods. Also gonna post this image, thought it was just a difficulty challenge with New Threat, but looking at it now, it might be a glitch.



Actually for your standalone, is it just in ./data/menu? You know looking at my data directory, I'm not seeing .tex files. Does your standalone include them?

Also, in my .toml, I have the direct path set to "SYWV5/direct". If that makes a difference. Sega Chief, only files for your mod went to the data folder, which I backed up beforehand, and the exe patch that you did. I patched out the cd check from that.

Edit: On another note, isn't Tifa amazing guys? Lol! Kicks so much ass!

As said in the first post of my mods : "Please Use Steam AIO installer unless you want to add other mods; if you want to add more mods then use 7th Heaven 2.3 + iros (no support from me here for 7th Heaven)."
So just go to 7h if you want to change mods, it's more conveniant for this

Lol I already mentioned before I won't be doing that. Can't use 7th heaven. Not a big fan. It's all good man. If I gotta figure it out on my own, I can. Thought it wouldn't hurt to ask for help.

Edit: Actually when I was using 7th heaven, back a month and some change ago, I had the same issue. Never reported it. First I thought it was an issue with the way I was using these mods without 7th heaven, but no, same issue. So there's that. This issue is also present with 7th heaven, and new threat and satsuki loaded at the same time, regardless of load order.

The problem is that nt mod seems to use unused font char to convert them in psx buttons.
In Aavock font the char are used as in the original pc font witch didn't provide psx buttons.

Cool thanks Satsuki. Is that something that can be fixed, or should I find a different font mod? Btw, Satsuki, what would I have to uncheck to use a different font mod?

My bad, I thought that the PSX buttons would display there as well.

Instead, can you post the dialogue box from the Highwind tutorial guy?

Here you go. This was exactly the issue I was talking about. See how the buttons are color coded, but they're wonky? That's it.



Wait so what exactly is the problem? Aavock, did you figure it out?

I see, drawing all PSX buttons is planned. Can you post a screenshot of the in-game default configuration buttons as a reference?

You got it.

Hey TheDrifter363,

It is indeed the font used in Satsuki's pack. Can you provide a few screenshots as I'm not sure about the visual incompatibilities you're experiencing?

Sure. This is all I got for now, but I've seen a few other issues. Like when describing button prompts, like switch or page down, or stuff like that. Usually, it'll have a color coded button next to those words, I'm guessing corresponding to the ps1 buttons, but those buttons are a garbled mess.

Hey Aavock,

Is this the same mod that's in Satsuki's version 5? If it is, do you think you could take a look at new threat. I think there's some visual incompatibilities with your mod and his. Mainly the button prompts. It's all a garbled mess. If it's not your mod in Satsuki's release, then don't worry about it dude. It's all good. Keep up the great work!

Hey Satsuki got a question,

I'm using your 5.30. I was wondering if I could use another mod for fonts instead of yours. Is yours bundled with the menu artwork too? I'd have to get a replacement for that then.

Main problem, there's visual glitches with your mod and new threat installed. It's the button prompts. They're all garbled. I'm guessing there's a conflict with your mod and new threat.

I noticed when I was using version 4 with The Reunion, I didn't have this issue. You didn't include menu artwork and fonts with your version 4. So that's my reasoning.

Let me know man!

So Sega Chief, do you think you'll be able to fix that flashback crash? If you want any more information, I can try to take a look. I really wanted to see that in its conclusion.

Yeah the only thing in my notepad++ it says after change directory is SOH. No idea what that means. It's also in special text.

Also I found some other issues. When fast forwarding, the game tends to crash. It only does that when your mod is loaded. Otherwise it runs fine with The Reunion.

Edit: Oh yeah forgot to mention that! The Kalm save point SP smile man is glitched. You don't get teleported back. Well there you go! Lol.

Hey Sega Chief,

I'm using The Reunion version of your mod, and I'm having an issue after the

fight. It's after I win. The game just crashes. I had this issue using ffnx also, so I'm thinking it might have to do with your mod. Any ideas? I'll submit the crash logs and stuff.

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

Nah I get it. Square Enix must be pretty anal if they would do something like that. I guess I'm used to mod communities like Half Life and Fallout. Valve and Bethesda/Obsidian/Black Isle must be pretty liberal in that I've never heard of any mods over there implementing disc checks, or hell leaving them in if the original game had it. But if that's how Square Enix wants to play, so be it. It'll be up to me figure out a way past that.

Reminds me of Nintendo and and taking down AM2R. Maybe it's a Japanese company thing. Eh.

Edit: Now that I think about it. I don't think Reunion implements any disc checks. I'll have to test that out. Been a while since I used it. Maybe you guys are a bit more strict/careful.

Releases / Re: [FF7PC-98/Steam] New Threat Mod (v2.0.94)
« on: 2021-04-02 02:43:46 »

if you have original discs: check out http://forums.qhimm.com/index.php?topic=16270.0
that will allow you to install with later OS's and then just insert the correct disc number when playing :>

Oh I have no problem installing the games through discs! I actually have the old 98 release too. I just hate disc checks. I mainly use the steam version for my gameplay for convenience. But thanks I appreciate it! It's always good to have options.

you're being really unfair

all those games you are referencing are modern games that were actually made with modding in mind, especially fallout and skyrim


in ff7 even the simplest texture replacements will cause bugs if you dont know how the game works and what you are doing, code has to be added to make all this stuff work


shortly after skyrim was released bethesda actually released a set of modding tools to help modders mod it, these final fantasy games are the opposite - they tried to be masterpieces of their time and the source code was thrown away when the game was completed

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.

Just use the Seventh Heaven mod engine for mods, I believe it gets rid of the disc check.

Yeah I been talking to the people at the 7th heaven board about that. I'm not a big fan of how it requires admin access to work. It also uses a disc mounting system to get past the disc check. It sucks. Messed up big picture mode with steam. A lot of the times I like playing from my bed without a keyboard, so I gotta have stuff work somewhat seamlessly. It was a good try.

Thanks!

Sweeet thanks Sega Chief! So let me get this straight. The original 98 exe has a disc check. You modify the exe to add your own stuff, but you don't remove the disc check. Ooooh! I get it now. Cool. I thought when you guys are modifying the exe, you're also removing the disc check. I gotchu. Makes sense.

That'd be up to me to figure out how to get rid of the disc check, while preserving your changes. Hehe. Need to beef up my programming skills!

You know I thought any modifications of the exe would be removing the disc check, since it seems to be a pretty outdated DRM. You know with steam and all. And you can't buy the 98 version from official retailers anymore. Huh.

Hey dude whatever floats your boat man. I'm just not a big fan of disc checks, especially when the steam version has nothing of the sort. I'm not too sure of the 98 release, been a while since I installed that one. Your mod manager is not a necessity, just a nice feature. I can always install mods manually.

Didn't think voicing my grievances would be a big deal. I'm just not used to any mods I install, having these anti piracy features. Big fan of modding games, like Half Life and Fallout, and they have nothing of the sort. Hell Mod Organizer for New Vegas and Skyrim, don't even need admin access. They got a sweet virtual file system too.

You do you dude.

But as i said in my pack's topic, you want to mod more, use 7h, my pack is an AIO for easy modding steam game for casual user, not for advanced modding.
You could also (should work):
1)install vanilla steam ff7
2)install my pack
3)setup my pack
4)download and install FFNx steam's version (just don't overwrite the "shader" folder and "FFNx.toml" file)
5)install NT mod
6)Launch game from steam only without using my launcher

By the way you also need to copie the ending2 and jenova_e movies files from "\data\movies" to the "\data\lang-en\movies" or you'll miss them while playing game

What's good Satsuki? Lol. I just spoke to someone at the 7th heaven board. I can't use a mod application that requires admin access. It'll mess up my setup man. All of my games and applications must run without admin privileges.

So I was gonna reply to you about your advice. I tried it, renamed ff7.e.exe to ff7.exe. Rename ff7_en.exe to ff7_en.exe.backup. Seems like new threat adds a disc check when it modifies the 98 executable. That suuuucks. It's what I was trying to ask Sega Chief about. When he modifies the steam executable, there's no such problem. I don't wanna have to mount an iso just to play my games. It's why I prefer no-cd cracks.

Satsuki, so I had to use your older graphics pack that didn't include the 98 executables.

Wait so now you're saying I can still use the steam exe with your 5.30? I don't have to use your 98 executables. Huh....that's a good idea. I wouldn't have to downgrade either. I already have a backup solution, using syncthing, for the saves, which do end up deleting here and there. I've lost a big of progress once.

Thanks dude. I'll check it out. I'm gonna wait for Sega Chief to respond, to see what he's doing when he modifies the 98 executables. Is he including a disc check? No idea these mods had anti piracy built into them. Sucks. I hate disc checks.

No. 7H relies on elevated privileges in order to work its magic.
Because the Steam version is just a wrapper around the disc version, and it's easier to work from a common root.
Yes
We could, but that would defeat a ton of the checks we do to discourage piracy. Steam puts it on sale so often, for so cheap, that there's no excuse for not being legit.

Huh really? That sucks. I'm not a big fan of my games running as admin, as that messes up my Steam games and big picture mode.

Wait so the steam version doesn't mount the 98 iso in any way. I have it, and I never noticed it doing that. How is it a wrapper?

So you guys run anti piracy checks on 7th heaven. Is that the point of the admin access and the disc mounting? Damn that sucks.

Alright thanks dude. I'll have to stick to standalone mods then. Was having issues with new threat and satsuki's graphic pack working together.

Hey guys,

Just a quick question. Is there any way to run 7th heaven without admin privileges? I use steam for all my games, and big picture mode can't work with any game that runs in admin mode. I noticed you guys also mount the install disc from the 98 version using powershell. Any idea why? Does the exe run a disc check? Can't you modify it for a no-cd bypass?
