I thought Echo-S was a voiceover mod, and nothing more.  I just looked to see the full list of included changes.  Thanks for the info.  I'll give it a shot.

Disclaimer: I haven't played the game in years.  I'm just now thinking about a replay will all of the new mods.

Last time I played, I used a music mod which worked great for most of the game.  However, there was one scene that it completely destroyed.  It's the exact moment that Cloud grabs the sword and it starts shaking.  In the original, the music is perfectly synced so that the most epic part of the track plays exactly when that happens.  The mod broke that, and it really destroyed the impact of the scene.

Now you might be thinking, "yeah, but that was a long time ago.  Have you tried it recently?"

No, but I've scene recent YouTube videos of others on that same scene, and they had the same problem.

So, what I'm asking is if at this point there is any music mod that has fixed that (or a separate fix outside of any individual music mod).

can this use for ff7 remake 2012

First of all, it's not a remake, it's just a re-release.  Yes, you can use this with it.  But, you have to convert it to the original version, first.  Look here:

OR, you can wait for the next version of Reunion, which I believe will work with the 2012 version without needing to convert it, first.

hey guys, Im Cesar. Just had a flashback of old childhood memories the other day and i just couldnt help but play some ff7. I seen online that i could modify the game which is incredible, only thing is ..ive been trying to enhance every detail of the game before i even sit down to play it. I love the new menu and the ffx battle style that i keep seeing in everyones images and videos but i cant seem to get it on mines. Im running Tifa's Package on Bootleg but for some reason i still have the old menu and the old battle style. Please help... as for the modifications i have seen so far, the game is awesome!!  thanks in advance & keep up the hard work!

im a steam user by the way.

Since you posted here, I'm going to assume that you're using Bootleg together with Reunion.  Don't use both, as it'll just cause problems.  I suggest you only use Reunion.

And thus the headcanon that Midhir is Reeve's hometown was born. XD

On actual Reunion news, I have to agree with other people, the lack of errors on this has been phenomenal.  It's better than many licensed localizations on the grammar front (Harvest Moon metaseries, I am looking at you), and better than most localizations on the translation front (at least in my experience).  Looking forward to R02! :D

Since R02 doesn't need to fix much, I'm looking more forward to the FMVs.  ;)

Just upgrade your driver.

No can do. It gives me the same "dead controller" problem that others are having, and I don't deal with the error popups well. That's why I reverted. But, I guess I could do it, temporarily, for verification.

Edit: Ok. I tried the latest driver version, and couldn't recreate the problem. I switched back to 711b, and it's happening again. So, obviously it's OBE, and Aali has already fixed it. I'll just have to deal with it, until at least the controller issue is fixed.

Note: I'm using 0.7b11. I'd post there, but the topic is locked.

Is it possible that the dll for this driver is overwriting part of the Nvidia fix for the FF8 black box issue? Because, I'm seeing those after installing this over the Nvidia 1.2 patch.

I just finished my playthrough.  I tried to do EVERYTHING.  I even went back to each town, to talk to everyone, after meteor was summoned.  Including things others found, it seems like there were less than 10 errors.  Impressive.

I'm keeping my save file at the end of the game, so I can watch the retranslated ending, when it's released.  Will the videos be viewable outside of the game (as separate files), or will they be embedded in an executable?  I'd like to be able to go back and watch the ones I missed...

I found another one:

On the Highwind, after the scene where Cait Sith reveals his identity, Red XIII says, "Lucrecia choose Hojo in order to protect him."

"choose" -> "chose"

Edit: Sorry, Vincent says it.  But, it looks like you got it, anyway.

FF7 shares vars.

*facepalm*  ...seriously...?

Edit:  When you get Cloud back, and the whole group is talking on the Highwind, Cloud says, "Hojo's Sephiroth Clones are nothing special. The process used to create them is identical to the one that's used on members of Soldier."

I don't know if it was intentional, but that's the first time they're referred to as "Clones".  Everywhere else, it's "Copies".

i can't  enter the "Group Hive" while at the Honey Bee in. you can tell the lady your ready but she will not open the door

Someone mentioned this earlier, and it helped me get past that part.  The problem seems to be that you're standing in the way, and she can't get to the door.  If you answer the question a second time, but select no, she somehow gets through and opens it anyway (still trying to, from the first time).

I have not touched animations (Are you sure they are backwards, and that they were correct without Reunion?). It could be another ts issue with questions.

I'm not sure if it was like that in the original game.  Details:

"Don't you like being with me?"  ->  Choose "Yeah" -> *vigorously shakes head "no"* -> "Well, that's a relief"
"Don't you like being with me?"  ->  Choose "Not really" -> *Nods "yes"* -> "Oh, don't tease!"

Edit:  Minor gripe.  Wouldn't you consider "Malboro" to be series canon?  I chose that option, but it's called "Morbor".

During the Gold Saucer date, when she asks if you enjoy spending time with her, Cloud's response animations seem backwards.  The response seems right.  It's just the animation that's backwards.

What I mean is, if I choose yes, he shakes his head no.  If I choose no, he shakes his head yes.

Edit:  I just found a minor inconsistency with the Fort Condor battles.  The guy at the window says, "Oh, and you can now use Bomb Catapults."  But, when you're placing them, they're called "Fire Catapult".

It's definitely much more polished than you would expect, for the first release of a fan translation project. So, your extra playthroughs paid off.

During the Titan summon animation, the status window, on the right, glitches.  It goes back and forth, between background and foreground.

I found an error:

In Junon, when practicing with the other guards for Rufus' sending off, after you show them the victory "special move", one of the guards says, "Excellent!  We'll go with that as".

It looks like the rest of the sentence may be there, but was pushed out of the dialog box.  There seems to be a blank line above where the sentence starts.

Bootleg seems to be obsolete now anyways. Aalis driver doesn't seem to work with bootloader from what I can tell. I've tried it a few times, and the new update is definitely an improvement since it wont keep showing the same errors, but it would need an option to fully disable it before I fully upgrade to it. Most of the mods aren't very hard to install so it's pretty manageable. Run an instance of bootleg with the models you want and copy your char, battle, and world lgps, then just reinstall with the reunion and new video driver and add the lgps back in.

Is Anxious Heart being added to the Reunion? I like the idea of the update so it's compatible with the new video driver, I'm not 100% sure what the story is about ff7music and how to rename the files so they work without it, and I'd like to keep using the original Anxious Heart tracks. I don't like how some of the other audio mods sound different than the original game.

I tried to install Reunion over Bootleg, and ended up with a pure white Buster Sword (missing texture). There were probably more problems, but I reinstalled after seeing the first one.

I'm using Reunion, HQ movies, and FF7Music, without any problems that I would attribute to the combination of mods. After using Reunion, I also have to agree that the models they chose fit better than what I had originally chosen from Bootleg.

Are the retranslated FMVs up, somewhere (I don't see a thread)?

I'm using your videos.  The files say 15 fps.  When playing, FRAPS says 14 fps. I'm launching with FF7Music.  Should I try launching with 7thHeaven?

Edit: 7thHeaven does the same thing.  I don't have Bootloader, since I'm not using Bootleg.

Edit 2:  Maybe I'm doing something wrong with your videos.  I just noticed that the files I was looking at, when I said they were 15 fps, were the originals.  They're in "Final Fantasy VII/data/movies".  I have the "Final Fantasy VII/7thHeaven" directory, which only has "cmh175 HQ FMV Pack.iro" in it.

When I open 7thHeaven, it shows your FMV pack on the main tab.  It says it's installed, and the left purple button says "Deactivate", indicating that it is active.  When I click "Configure", your videos are checked, the ending3 video is checked, and the final option is fullscreen.

Edit 3:  It's intermittent.  I'm not sure what's causing it, but normal gameplay will be at 14, when it's going to happen.  If it's supposed to be at 30, it'll be at 28.

And, just like that, it's happening again.  I got all the way to the district 7 pillar, and the stuttering/sound effect lag happens when we swing off of it.  I noticed, on FRAPS, that my FPS is 14, at that point.  Isn't it supposed to be 15, for the video?  No idea if that would cause it.  But if the frames in the video are different than the sound is expecting?  Probably not...

Ok, I tried the HQ FMV mod.  The problem remains.  It's like the humming in the opening stutters, then starts over.   :|

Edit:  YEEEEEEEEEEEEEESSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!  Finally found the problem.  It was the NVIDIA driver I was using.  I remember downloading an old one, a long time ago, for Final Fantasy 7.  I must have updated it, for Skyrim, at some point.  I did some searching, and found a post on the NVIDIA boards with a familiar avie (LeonhartGR).  He mentioned that everything worked fine with driver 314.22.  I installed that driver, and I'm good to go!  Thanks for the help, and sorry for pestering you guys.  The frustration was overflowing.

On a more on-topic note, the lack of error message suppression in the latest driver is keeping me away.  That would drive me crazy, so I'm sticking with v0.7b11, for now.

Ok.  I reinstalled the game for the 11 billionth time, used the game converter, installed the 0.8b driver, and did nothing else.  The problem still exists.  What's really confusing is, this didn't happen when I just had Bootleg installed...

Oh, and Kaldarasha: The HQ FMVs look good, and I plan to use them, but I doubt that would solve this problem...Do you disagree?

More info:  I constantly see a "couldn't lock sound buffer" error at the main menu.  Also, after installing 0.8b, FF7Config no longer works.  When I try to select "custom driver" in the graphics tab, I get "Failed to load driver - The specified procedure could not be found".

Also FF7 Music isn't needed with it anymore.

DLPB mentioned that, but does it allow the remastered soundtrack?

Edit: And, will the retranslated FMVs be using these, or will I have to choose one or the other?

Sorry, getting off topic, I know.

Copy/pasted from the Reunion thread.  I've tried to solve it, myself, but only accomplished frustration.  I just made sure I had the 0.7.11b driver installed (I haven't installed the new one, since there still seem to be issues with it), and even tried converting the movie files with ffmpeg.  No luck.  Here is my original message:

This may not have anything to do with this, but it's driving me crazy.  Just trying to start the game, during the opening video, the sound gets choppy while it's still showing the stars.  Then, for the rest of the video, the sound lags WAY behind the video.

I did a complete uninstall (including registry keys), and redownloaded from Steam.  I used the game converter, installed Reunion, and installed FF7Music.  That's it.  Other than that opening video, everything else is working fine.

My previous version also included mods from Bootleg.  In that version, the opening video was fine (even after installing Reunion), but the Buster Sword was plain white in battle (missing texture?), so I did the fresh install, without Bootleg.

I actually installed less, this time, so, I don't understand the problem.  The main difference is, I installed FF7Music separately, since I wasn't going to use any other Bootleg mods.

Are there any options in ff7_opengl.cfg that could cause this?  I edited that manually, this time, since I don't have the BootLoader.
