Misc. Tools / Re: [FFX] Skill editor - Ronso (v0.3.1.0)
« on: 2021-05-27 09:07:36 »
Sorry for the late reply. To summarize, Ronso is probably not going anywhere further no, however I have (slowly, whenever I have some spare time to spend on it) made some further reverse engineering of the Steam version of the game and I have a pretty concrete idea of a kind of modding suite I'd like to make from it. I don't want to draw any undue attention to it until I'm 100% sure I can deliver on it (both in terms of stable functionality and actually being able to get it fully put together and released) though.
But yeah, I still have my interest in FFX and am at least intending to make something of it.

@Lyrithus: Interesting finds!
If it can be repacked without the need for any (unknown) encryption that should definitely be a possibility. Keep in mind that the data on disk and in memory may not necessarily be laid out in the same order however. Personally I think that direct memory access is better for trying out / experimenting with things. It can also offer greater capabilities as you don't necessarily have to keep within the limits of the game's expected data (ie. maybe enemy AI only has 16Kb of instruction memory alloted to it, modifying stat growth for character A may also affect character B and so on). But once you have a concrete idea of what you want to do (and assuming it is possible within the game's confines), then making a persistent file-based mod would of course have its clear advantages. :)

Great news!

Alas, after 2 years, guess this is going nowhere.

Support / Re: ff7 international cd4 artwork - how to rip?
« on: 2021-03-07 12:18:06 »
You're in luck. I worked with Niemasd 2 years ago to rip the models from the bonus disk, we pretty much figured out how to rip everything else in the process.



https://mega.nz/file/joEmhZaT#UlRBF6eS2k1vaWjjA8JA65uCSV_3UistShbne3g9lHE

The above link has 3 folders:

Raw files extracted directly from the NPKs using niemasd's scripts

PSicture, a very old utility that browses raw psx files for viewable images

Model and texture rips for all but 2 of the viewable models (helicopter and car would not extract correctly)

In PSicture, simply scan any of the raw directories and it will generate a list of images you can save. Have fun!



Thank you so much. interestingly enough, the artwork is glued together with the page.

with this : https://github.com/m35/jpsxdec you can extract files from psx iso.
if the picture you need to extract are in .tex format you'll also need to convert .tex to .png (http://forums.qhimm.com/index.php?topic=15404.0)

hmm thank you very much, this at least could open the ISO. Now I just have to find the textures, do you know if there is a tool that can scan archives for them?
I also managed to do something I often postponed.

Support / ff7 international cd4 artwork - how to rip?
« on: 2021-03-06 09:01:06 »
So, I'm trying to get the artwork of ff7 international off the disc, but I have no clue how. I have the bin-cue files, but obviously they can't be read in windows, they do work with an emulator (at least PCSX, ePSXE doesn't).

AFAIK, FF7 international has also been released to PC, but only in japan, and I don't know if it came with the bonus disc content.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Sorry for the question, but how did you actually replace the sound effects?

I don't suppose there is a way to identify/update the description of sounds effects? @Tsunamix?

Thank you so much for this!

Playing the Steam non-remastered version here.

So, I tried to make holy hit multiple times, and now enemies don't disappear anymore after being hit - but they absolutely die lol I assume there is no fix for this?

GF attacks cannot be made multi-hit either I suppose.

Let alone enemy attacks...

Could you help me identify the "chosen by the planet" tracks? For the life of me, I can't find them.

Announcements and site development / Re: An apology
« on: 2020-06-16 09:32:53 »
In my very short stay here after I came back this year I had negative experience with him twice. First as I mentioned in the COVID-19 thread, and second in the FF7 Remake discussion thread where he straight up called me and others who liked the game "apologists who make  Senix smile by defending this rubbish" and then when I replied that for me the game had quality he smugly announced that he has "higher standards". All this coming from a person who declared the game is "mindless crap" before it even came out and didn't even play it. At this point I've decided that taking part in that discussion makes no sense because every time I say something good about the game I will be called out by him and I really didn't feel like fighting with anyone over what should be just an exchange of opinions.

Well, and that definitely seals it from me. A COVID-denier, this I'd have never expected. What a shame, he's worsened over the years.

First off. The whole reason I became a staff member a decade ago was to clean up the cesspool qhimm had become.  As sl will attest this site was full of trolling.  I didn't want to see this place go down in flames. So we banned and warned and banned some more. And the site became productive again.

 But then real life started. Wife, kids, job, etc. Forum moderating took a backseat.  I've largely relied on the moderators to police everything, but when they look to me for advice, it's still largely been a hands off approach from me.
This strawberries will not happen again.  The only reason DLPB wasn't banned in 2009 was because we got tired of fighting his accounts and he quit trolling for a while. 

I don't believe there is anyone to blame but ourselves.  Tsunamix and everyone else handled things the only way they could, by engaging with DLPB in public and calling him on his childish strawberries.  We failed them by not enforcing his original ban, and not reinstating it sooner.  What else could they do beside confront him and ultimately leave?

DLPB and reunion are not the face of this forum, and we will be better for being done with him. 

Happy to help being part of some new staff. I've been here for quite a long time - not always super active, but still - and have never seen a shitshow like that. Also, being in the legal trade, seeing legal actions thrown around like candies always strikes a chord.

But to be honest, I never saw DLPB putting down others. In fact, I even had him on the buddy list! But then again, I have lots of people there, I'm a friendly forumite. Well I stand corrected. What a jerk.

Hello,

I took it upon myself to make some loopable ogg files of certain songs from the FF7 remake so that I could play FF7 PC with that music. I also want to play with New Threat mod so I installed that first so I could modify the files necessary to have the music play when I want to.

So far I have done the following oggs. I would upload them somewhere but I imagine that might not be allowed to post a link like that.

pre.ogg
oa.ogg
ob.ogg
bat.ogg
chu.ogg
makoro.ogg
fan2.ogg
over2.ogg

Basically the music played during "the demo." I used comical.ogg to insert a track that's not in the original: the sentinal scorpion battle music.

For the opening movie I had to basically edit the movie's audio track to insert the FF7:Remake version. I also had to cut that track to size so it sounds a little rough. If I had the audio track of both the opening movie with just the SFX and a track of the music WITHOUT the SFX, I could smooth it out.

Here is a proof of concept video. Sorry the bottom is cut off I can't use OBS properly.

I guess my number one question is can I expand the music list in Makou Reactor so I can add the "environmental battle music" that's present in FF7:Remake? Also, is comical.ogg the only unused ogg in the game that can be referenced?

Thank you for taking the time to check this out.

gained a subscriber. Perhaps you'd share your full list of identificated tracks here?

Hey SC, since Sister Ray is about to go public, will you consider updating your mod with it?

24
Is this going to take advantage of Sister Ray?

very excited about this especially the Sister Ray integration
