[FF7 PC] Bonez' Sound Effect Suite - 3.0 - Deprecated

(1/8) > >>


This mod has been deprecated and replaced by Cosmo Memory
This project started out about a year ago as a little mod to just replace the FF7 UI sounds with the UI sounds from FFXIII. Since that time, it has evolved into something far more... After following the community and modding the game for several years, I noticed the graphical and musical mods were growing and advancing but the sound effects department was totally stalled. I mean, it's an entire 1/3 of what your senses are taking in, besides the visuals and music! I wanted something to match the beautiful/advanced graphical and musical mods provided by the very talented authors/creators of this community... So, I present to you most complete sound effect replacement mod currently available!

The goal of this mod is to give the sound effects of FF7 a complete overhaul/update with carefully chosen, professional quality, accurately timed, equalized, and edited sounds; on a scale previously never achieved. I'm very proud of what I've managed to accomplished so far and I hope everyone enjoys it as much as I do.

This mod currently replaces/updates ~480 magic/battle/world sound effects with many more to come.

*Disclaimer: This is NOT the same mod of mine that is included in the Qhimm Media mod. That mod only changes the menu sounds. Some people are apparently under the impression that they are one and the same.

This is an IRO file which will require 7th Heaven Mod Manager (see:
Be sure this mod is above any other sound mods in your load order.
I've tested as many sounds as I could and have found no issues. If you run across any, please let me know here
Depending on the music mod you use/don't use, you may need to adjust the music volume down in game. -Better to be too low than too high! Eg; I use EDMusic and Tsuna Arranged and I find SFX:100% and MUSIC:70% to be perfect.

dude might wanna change the name from ProtoX to ProtomanZxAdvent to avoid confusion, i still don't understand why the 7th Heaven 3.0 Catalog uses that old name of mine

The latest IRO for FFXIII UI Sounds + ProtomanZxAdvent might be a little wacky somewhere.  Can't configure and deleting in 7H doesn't delete the file on disk.

I second what Kassius said when you try and change it it says Can not configure mod FFXIIIUI+ProtoX - Failed to read mod.xml

On a side note is there any possible way to get in contact with Seclet to possibly add in the voice sounds in battle i think that would be the perfect mix but cant do it as this Iro overwrites that one
