Title: [FF7PSX/PSP NTSC-U] HEROES v1.0 HQ Seph/Cloud swap
Post by: meesbaker on 2014-10-24 16:04:11

Hi everyone! HEROES is finally out! To put it short, this brings everything to the PSX that hasn't been there yet:

- Higher quality Field/Battle models for Sephiroth and Cloud on the PSX!
- complete Sephiroth patch with a full role swap with Cloud in field and battle and on the worldmap
- Sephiroth executing all of Clouds battle animations including his limit breaks and wielding both Masamune and Cloud's
  weapon set!
- all dialogue fixed and fields edited accordingly!


Additionally this includes a 9999 breaker and a KERNEL.BIN and SCENE.BIN overhaul, new spells, mdef bug fix, adjusted boss fights and a few new items and materia are included!

-SINGLE PLAYER COMBAT-
While this is mostly a drawback for having a hq battle model and having a battle model doing Cloud's limits and animations it is actually pretty cool and puts the focus on Sephiroth! All fields and boss battles have been fixed to work properly this way. This means that there will be other characters in Field but all battles are handled by Sephiroth alone and the game is balanced out for that. Also Phoenix Downs heal your HP now.

I only had to give up Vincent and Yuffie but Utai is still working and the pagode can now be climbed and conquered by Sephiroth!!

So far I do unfortunately only have the disc 1 ready but I'm working hard to get the other two done as well. Just use a fresh ISO of the NTSC-U version and apply the ppf patch using ppfomatic 3.

Standard version:

SPECIAL THANKS

- NFITC1 for making ProudClod and WallMarket
- again NFITC1 for answering all my stupid questions
- myst6re for making Makou Reactor
- Lasyan3 for making Hack7
- Ficedula for his lzs compression tools
- Next for making the one and only hex-editor
- all my friends here :) especially Vayneruel, Jeet and Lazy Bastard

This may not look as spectecular but the whole process of learning how to mod the PSX version and get some slight graphical enhancements out of it is about 2 years now, this is the product.


UPDATE

-minor fixes, if you have the original version please load the updated one and make a new ISO

Replacing playable characters is one thing, but doing this for NPC is really a lot of works, so good job :) even if, like you said that maybe doesnt look spectacular like some graphics PC mods, the work to success this is not even comparable, and certains players (like me) prefer modding and playing on PSX the original games

Im still surprised how impressive is the HD model of sephiroth,its look even better than ff8/ff8 characters

What are the difference between virtual and physical version? Did you inclued the motorcycle new model aswell?

Thank you :)

Nah I didn't get this done yet. The difference is the model of Cloud in battle during flashback. For emulator I used the one you see in the video with blue coat and the former animations of Sephiroth. This model crashes on physical consoles thus Im using the standard Cloud model there.

Thank you  ;)
I am sorry that this takes so long but disc 2 is critical with all the leader changes and the scenes where cloud ain't even present.

I can vouch for that mees as I was having trouble getting the party members to be the leader as I assigned them to be and have them attached with the dialogue and that was pc version granted with me going a step further.  Now guys imagine what that can be like on the psx.  I feel for you mees and hope you can get it with few relative problems.

I have a Sephiroth FF7 PC mod. And I wonder how do I get it only in the battles? Which files need to be edited and which use programs?

This thread is for a PlayStation game mod, not the PC version. And please don't crosspost the same question to two threads like this.

Of course, Im hopefully done next month. I could have already finished it but atm I have little time for modding, gotta make sure I'll pass all tests for university.

hey Messbaker

3 party members showed insted of just showing sephiorth

can you fix this please

thanks

Post by: meesbaker on 2015-02-19 22:50:36
Whoops must have happened when i updated it the last time, im terribly sorry. Ill look at it.

FIXED

When you pointed me at the issue with the invisible characters during the scene where you must have all characters simultaneously press the buttons to open the door to air buster I accidently created this new problem. I played through the whole first disc on a phyical psx, there should not be anything else. I solved the problem so now youre good to go, have fun.

I cut it out, for many reasons it's impossible to make it work.

Ill try to get as far as possible but even in a beta state I can not promise that I can finish this by march as planned.

Discs two and three are a lot less work than the first one but also very difficult. Involves more thinking and scripting, testing and troubleshooting which is very time consuming.

hey is it possible to use black chocobo save editor on this? Also how can I get the buster sword for Sepiroth? Also can I have Cloud in my party too? Lastly, is disk 2 and 3 out?
Title: Re: [FF7PSX/PSP NTSC-U] HEROES v1.0 HQ Seph/Cloud swap
Post by: meesbaker on 2015-05-06 16:28:40
Black Chocobo will always work with all my mods.
No on disc2/3  Im still trying to prevent Sephiroth from mako poisoning staying the protagonist for the whole mod.

No on Buster Sword, Black Chocobo wont help you here as it just labels items wrong thinking of an unmodded Kernel. You can use it but it will not change the fact that I swapped the buster sword model out of Sephs battle model to get the masamune in. I could probably do a custom model for you if I find the time.

If you like the steam version you can find a more complete seph patch I made called Imperis.

It would be amazing if you can swap the buster sword in!!! As for the steam version, I can't play it since I only have ffvii for the psp.


Also do you have a playable mod that uses your [FF7PSX NTSC-U PAL-G] Modder's Resource - HiRes Cloud battle model? I would love to play as HD Cloud even if he's by himself.

Post by: meesbaker on 2015-05-07 08:15:00
Yes I made a complete game overhaul using that model called Omega. I never released it though because I was stupid and made it only for the German version. I may pick up on it soon but atm Im more into speedrunning ff7 on twitch than actually modding it.

Cool. Yeah you dont have to mod if you dont want to. But if you ever release future mods, I'll be there to try it out  :)

I love modding for PSX, just had some other things to do, the steam mod and working out a decent speedrun. Ill be doing that for a few more days or weeks, then Ill get back to heroes and omega.

i was wondering as i just downloaded your mod and am new to modding, how do i get it to work on my physical console? and do i need to use a PSX? or can my ps3 work just fine?
do put the psx cd into the computer and mess with the files on that? or what. please help me out.
Title: Re: [FF7PSX/PSP NTSC-U] HEROES v1.0 HQ Seph/Cloud swap
Post by: Covarr on 2016-07-28 03:40:53
You need either a modded PS1 or PS2 or a swap disc to play a burned disc. No way to play it on a PS3 as far as I know.

This should be able to do it (http://www.mod-chip.net/psxmodchips.htm).

is it possible that an emulator will work? i have several psx but i just dont feel like rummaging through all my stuff to dust it off.
Title: Re: [FF7PSX/PSP NTSC-U] HEROES v1.0 HQ Seph/Cloud swap
Post by: Covarr on 2016-07-28 21:59:26
Yes, an emulator should work fine. It would probably be easier than trying to run it on real hardware.
