Satsuki Yatoshi Mod - SYW V5.42







Please Use Steam AIO installer unless you want to add other mods; if you want to add more mods then use 7th Heaven 2.3 + iros (no support from me).
The versions number might be different between Steam AIO installer and iros files, but the textures are the same, just use the latest version for both.


Download SYW V5.40 for Steam All-in-one Installer: HERE. {MIRROR} - Update 5.42 : HERE. {MIRROR}
Always use the lastest version to avoid bugs, no support for version 5.41 or less.

Download SYW 7th Heaven, iros files: HERE. {MIRROR}

(Last update: 04/09/2021. Reason: 5.42 AIO update + iros's update (15 fields, 1 worldmap texture, and 1 fmv)
(Trailer: Download or YouTube)
(French users only: Use this Here instead.)

What's SYW?
The SYW mod represents the most accurate modern take on the PC version of Final Fantasy VII helped by deep learning techniques (such as ESRGAN). The package includes cleaner, more detailed and higher resolution background arts, battlefields, worldmap, magic effects, animations, minigames, menus and videos. All upscaled with AI or done in HD from scratch.


The main goal of the SYW mod is to get as much as details as possible without having an oversharp and overclean effect; also to keep the rendering as natural as possible and constant in quality across the whole game.​


Requirements
  • Vanilla Final Fantasy 7 Steam version 1.0.9

Features (AIO pack)
  • Upscaled HD Fields with full animations (plus char texture for 3D elements like the flipper in the bar for example)(by myself)
  • Upscaled HD Battle backgrounds (plus textures for some enemies)(by myself)
  • Upscaled HD Worldmap (plus effects)(by myself + Aavock for minimaps)
  • From scratch HD Battle effects and magics by Kela51 (plus several fixes by myself)
  • Upscaled HD Minigames based on english version of my old waifu + updated texture (Aavock and myself)
  • From scratch HD Menus and Font (by Aavock)
  • Upscaled HD Animations (first mod with these animations)(by myself)
  • Upscaled HD 30fps Movies (first mod with 30 fps fmv)(by myself)
  • Modern 3D models (ChaOS by Kaldarasha)
  • Psx HQ music (FFNx FF7Music by myst6re)
  • Complete sound overhaul (Cosmo Memory by bonez)

Steam All-In-One Installer
  • Download and extract the .zip archive file
  • Use the .exe install (will take some time)
  • Launch the game with the desktop shortcut to setup FF7_SYW
Video of the installation : HERE.



Further Modding: 7th Heaven 2.3+
  • Use the lastest updated 7th Heaven version HERE. (Scroll down, click "Assets", and grab 7thHeaven-vxxx_Release.zip)
  • Then go in 7th "Settings/General Settings" and bottom-left you'll find FFNx section, click canary then check for updates, say yes and then "Restore defaults" next to save.
  • Then go in 7th "Settings/Game Driver - Animated Textures" and set it to ON.


If you don't update 7th Heaven + FFNx, you won't have field's advanced animations plus certain fields will hide stuff, the 30fps FMVs won't work properly too.

If you get slowdown, please disable the "Advanced Texture Animations" option from the iro.
(double clik on this mod and turn off the "Advanced Texture Animations")

The new FMV's look amazing!  Thank you so much for this pack, really appreciate it. Going to hold off with my annual FF7 playthrough until you get Aavocks UI ported over aswell. And then i can truly enjoy a FF7 Remaster :)

As soon as Aavock ui will be translated (working on it but while take some time) i'll make an iro for the menu + font and also a full installer from my pack (+kaldarasha's chaos models and myst6re's psf files) for vanilla steam, so no need for 7h nor manual tweak.

I'll also provide a minimal UI for ffnx basic settings.

Every now and then I forget how incredible your upscales look, and then you push a new update to remind everyone the definitive way to play FF7

Why not try and use DAIN or something similar to make the FMVs 30fps before upscaling them?

wow!! looks absolutely amazing
Another question will it be possible to have a png version for The Reunion or a direct install folder setup so I can convert the dds to png myself without moving things out of many directories?

No you can't dds is mandatory for advanced animation feature, png is useless because way too slow for loading 100 or 1000 files for animations

Seems we need to have to patch ffnx of flevel because out of box 30 fps cause issues in script timing (based on waiting x fmv frame)
So .... we'll see ^^
All fmv processed so far but 5 show issues i need to slove too

Hopefully it won't be too difficult to implement (wait, fmv frames x2)

TrueOdin tryed it's doesn't works.
Seem related to the cam data (in moviecam.lgp).
So he's working on it atm, and if it's ok, i'll only need to ship the modded lgp with my 30fps movie pack

30 fps movie ingame preview, look at how smooth the fmv and 3d models mouvement are now ^^ : http://wowsatsuki.free.fr/pil.mp4
some differences in 3d models animations, but not a big deal here, probabli can't optime more than that.

now need to do the full game (again) to check each fmv just to be sure that no bug or bad path model animations

I want to use your mod with only the Steam version. No Reunion and no 7th Heaven. How do you install it manually?

ATM it's not possible out of box, you need to setup FFNx manualy, unpack de iros files and do manual setup
But wait some time, i plan to do an automated installer for vanilla steam version (need to finish HD menu translation in english)

Two questions, Satsuki:

  • Will your upcoming "easy installer" of SYWV5+Aavock UI play nice with Reunion R06h/R07? I imagine many people will want to use both mods to get the most "definitive edition" possible of FFVII. But as you know, Reunion has its own menu overhaul and DLPB is very particular as to what mods do and don't work with Reunion.
  • Will we have the option to choose the original 15 fps FMVs for SYWV5 (and upcoming SYWV6) or will be forced to use 30 fps FMVs? I feel like 30 fps will look too smooth next to the 15 fps field/battle model animations

1)
DLPB never share anything, i won't enter in a debate here again, but i helped him, he never returned any help or hex value i needed, he does the same with lots of devel, too bad for users but reunion will never be supported by me and my mods, and as my mod needs lastest FFNx feature and DLPB don't use it...
long story short "never"

2)
fields animations are 30fps but fields animation while fmv are 15 fps so if fields is used as 15 fps with 30 fps fmv the animation is messed up.
that's why ATM trueOdin working on make the field's animation while fmv in 30 fps, so no speedup nor slowdows feeling when doing fields to fmv transition
so 30 fps fmv will look great with 30 fps fields aniation and it's only in this way i'll release the 30 fps fmv
long story short you won't be able to choose because 15 fps fmv will be useless and will only degrade the game comparing to 30 fps
