Easy installing mods into Final Fantasy VII with Bootleg



First of all you will need to BUY FF7 (English Version) if you don't have it.
For Example at Amazon

DOING A MAXIMUN INSTALLATION OF FF7 IS A MUST!







Why US Version?
Bootleg does not support multi language at the moment. If you want to take the risk, you can, and it will work, but I will tell you now, do not cry if you have many crashes, because as I told you before it is supposed to be used on the English Version.

Works in any Windows?
Bootleg mods should work on Windows XP/VISTA/7 (32 & 62 Bits). You should not have any problems!

Free Space needed:
The installation requires a minimum 16GB of free space during setup.
The final installation is 7GB to 9GB depending on mod selection.


Well... Lets the tutorial begin!


1.-Download Bootleg last version (All credits to PitBrat & VGR)



2.-Open "Bootleg0036.rar" and extract it wherever you want.
(Example)



3.- After you extracted it;

(Thanks PitBrat)
Set Bootleg.exe to run as Administrator:
    Right Click on Bootleg.exe
    Select Properties
    Go to the Compatibility Tab
    Check Run this program as an administrator
    APPLY

Now to start Bootleg, open BFE.exe



4.-Lets set up how do we want our FFVII.

You can set up your FF7 manually or use a preset clicking on "Presets" at the top bar.(I recommend clicking a Preset and then if you don't like something remove or change it, like I will show you)

I Like to use the "Full" preset.


Original Full preset.


Then I change things that I dislike.

The arrows says what I have added/removed comparing with the original full preset.
(Anyway this modifies are up to you, this is just what I do suggest you)



5.- Now click at the top bar "File --> Mod List".



6.- You will see a big list with the supported mods of Bootleg, with their original files names:


Why each file have different color?
GREEN: Files that are in this color are the mods that you already have.

|||||YELLOW: Files that are in this color are the mods that you do not require with the configuration you have set.

RED: Files that are in this color are the mods that you must have., you should not press "Run Bootleg" if you have any mod with this color.



7.- As you can see we do not have anything on green, that is because we have not downloaded any mods yet. Now take a look on the right of each file there is a link, each one is for downloading each mod.
You can also download them using this thread: The Big List of Mods (Credits: PitBrat)

START DOWNLOADING ALL THE MODS THAT ARE COLORED IN RED !!

- TIPS:
  • Place each mod you are downloading in the same folder as you extracted Bootleg.
  • Do not change the file name of the download, leave their exactly as they come.
  • Do not extract files that you think that can be extracted (*.zip *.rar files for example) Bootleg will automatically install them.
  • Be patient you will probably need to download around 10gb.
  • There are two versions of FacePalmer: FacePalmer.zip and the 20 FacePalmer.part??.rar files. You do not need both versions. (Thanks PitBrat)
  • There are two versions of Millenia's Cloud Swords: manual--1272687090.rar and automatic-- cloudswords_installer.rar. You do not need both versions.  1272687090.rar is recommended.(Thanks PitBrat)



8.- Now that you have downloaded all the files that are red colored.

Your folder should look similar to this:


And the mod list that is in "File --> Mod List" similar to this:

...


If you have something similar to the above Mod List screenshot, you are ready for the installation step.



9.- Be sure the "Locations" at the bottom part, are right! (Tell me if this needs more explanation)



10.- Now you are ready!! Click the red "Run Bootleg" button at the right!



11.- Good job, you should now be installing full mods into FFVII doing almost nothing!



I will continue the guide if I see that it's needed.! (It's most likely that I will continue it)
