FAQs and Tutorials / Re: Game only plays Midi music
« on: 2021-07-21 06:16:59 »
Check game driver settings -> advanced, and make sure music is set to VGMStream instead of original MIDI. Hope that helps!

As for 60FPS battles, it is currently not available, no. But it's being worked on, so keep an eye out for it!

What file type are you getting those offsets from?
PC/Steam. Is it different in other versions?

EDIT: That's where it is in the savemap, if I wasn't clear.

Hey! Thanks for this great tool, it's really helpful. I just had one quick suggestion: do you think changing party members via the party tab could also update the values at 0xCAD, 0xCAE and 0xCAF? Those values determine which party members show up in fields, and it's annoying having to change it manually when testing cutscenes.

Not sure how I missed this originally, but it looks interesting.  Has anyone done a playthrough of it?
I actually did my own video of the Midgar section back when I was first working on it (though there have been some minor changes since then):

That being said, I've been working on this quietly for the past few months, and finally got to the point where the whole game is playable! I plan on polishing up a few things and then sending it out for people to beta test, so keep an eye out for that.

Alright, got those two issues sorted out. Also fixed a couple of cutscenes that didn't get skipped correctly. Let me know if you have any more issues!

There's two major bugs I've found so far

1 - When you exit Costa Del Sol after defeating jenova - you get teleported by Cosmo Canyon and become a rock. You can't get encounters or open the menu.

2 - The game softlocks at Cosmo Canyon after you talk to Red at the top of the stairs and change your party.

I'm sure there's more later on.
Do you have a save I can test with?

Releases / [FF7 PC] Cutscene Skip Mod
« on: 2021-03-01 23:32:30 »
This was the first mod I ever made, so I figured I'd bring it over to 7th Heaven real quick!

This mod skips most of the cutscenes in the game, allowing you to focus on the gameplay. You'll also run into Mog occasionally, who you can talk to to skip some of the more tedious sections like Wall Market and the Shinra HQ stealth section.

Great for challenge runs. Likely incompatible with mods that modify flevel, like New Threat.

You can download the IRO here:

Old versions:

When I change Clouds name then reload the exe or the .dat file to an unchanged exe the change is what I made. The exe is 1.02, to be honest now that I think about it, I think it might be 7th Heaven screwing everything up, I can't even launch the game without going through it.
Hm, strange. Let me know if you keep having issues with it.

That said, I did notice an issue with accessories not being correct, so I went ahead and fixed that. And speaking of 7th Heaven, the editor can now generate Hext files for use with IROs!

When loading an updated exe or the data file only the name is correct, the Curse Rings are Fairy Rings when first loading the exe then change to Earrings when I load the dat file in.
What do you mean by "only the name is correct"? And which version of FF7 are you using?


Does this work with version 97 exe? (ff7 1.02 english)

My question is logical, my exe has important modifications and I need to be sure of its correct operation, in any case it is an excellent job, if it works for me I have small changes pending with Vincent and Caith Sith, of course I would include you in the credits.

I believe so! I had to make a small tweak to the editor to make sure it recognizes the 1997 version, but it looks like it's working fine. Let me know if you have any issues.

Some updates:

* I believe I've fixed the pre-emptive Aps glitch. For future reference, I set the battle flags in Proud Clod for Aps, etc. to FFE9 (they were FFF9 before) which seems to have done the trick.

* I didn't mention it before, but the materia smuggle glitch! Apparently the null slot used in that glitch reads which materia slots are accessible from the Buster Sword and the Bronze Bangle respectively, which makes sense. Since I'm not using Cloud in this mod, I just removed the Buster Sword's materia slots and that made smuggling impossible. (As a funny aside, one thing I tried before deciding on that was the menu 17 "remove character's materia" on character 255, which removed all 16 MP Plus materias from the null slot. So much MP Plus!)

* Hit a bit of a snag with the snowboard minigame. I know that Tifa has a snowboarding model, but I haven't been able to call it for the non-Gold Saucer version of the minigame. It's possible her model isn't even loaded. Might need to see if I can replace Cloud's model with Tifa's or something.
EDIT: I've confirmed that Tifa's model isn't loaded, and there doesn't seem to be an easy way to put it in at the moment, so I've just skipped it for now.

Progress is going pretty good so far, though! The mod is currently playable through disc 1, and I just started working on disc 2. If anyone wants to test it out, let me know.

Some updates:

  • You can now export the character data to a file, making it easier to backup and share without having to edit the entire EXE every time.
  • You can now change character IDs for Cait Sith and Vincent. I'm not sure what the impact of that is, but it's an option now.
  • Most importantly, you can now change the characters' names!

These are the names that appear on the character rename screen, so you can correct Aerith's name, change Red XIII to Nanaki, or whatever else you want to do.

WIP / Speedrun Irony Mod
« on: 2020-12-15 01:56:56 »

Something's not quite right. Cloud and Barret have gone mysteriously missing, with Tifa left to fend for herself. At least she has two friends with her—Cait Sith and Vincent—but when exactly did she meet these people? Why do the three of them know things that they shouldn't? And most importantly, what happened to Cloud and the others?

This is the Speedrun Irony Mod, a project I've been working on for a couple of months now. The idea is that you play through the whole game with the three most powerful characters in the speedrun (Tifa in No Slots, Cait Sith in Slots, and Vincent in All Bosses), but the exploits that make them so powerful have been fixed. There have also been a few other balance tweaks, as well as lots of meta humor and other goofy moments.

To-do list
  • LOTS of field scripts
  • Also LOTS of animations—Cloud has a bunch of animations that Tifa doesn't
  • Dice is incredibly strong for early game, so I'd like to nerf it somehow. Maybe one die for level <10, if that's possible?
  • Fix the pre-emptive glitch for Aps, Jenova BIRTH, Midgar Turks
  • Fix W-Item glitch
  • Some other tweaks as I think of them
  • Difficulty settings? Some ideas: no escape from battles, permanent active ATB, no EXP from non-boss encounters

So as you may know, most of the characters' initial data can be found and edited in the kernel. But since Young Cloud and Sephiroth are hogging their respective character slots, Cait Sith and Vincent's data is hidden away in the EXE, making it more annoying to edit. Well, I threw together a quick tool to help with that issue!

The tool locates Cait Sith and Vincent's data in the EXE, and allows you to edit it via the user interface. Right now it expects and validates with basegame data, but later on I might see if I can tweak it to read weapon data, etc. from the kernel. I also might expand it later to edit other stuff that can only be changed in the EXE, but I just stuck with this for now since this was what I needed it for.

Download link here:

Old versions:

Includes a DLL (Editor.Core.dll) that you can use for your own installers. Also includes the source code, which you can also use and modify if you want. Written in C#.

Thank you for making such a great piece of software! Thought I should mention some of the glitches I've encountered:

-The white text in dark mode turns black whenever you edit a script.

-It sometimes crashes when you switch between flevel files and then edit something.

-Opening the walkmesh viewer marks the file as having unsaved changes, even if you didn't actually change anything.

-The "Red XIII is named Nanaki" custom opcode doesn't seem to work. I tried using it and the game just hung. (It also didn't create a collapsible code block like if statements usually do.)

-Looks like Cloudiar reported this already, but I noticed, when working with large amounts of if statements, that the game started behaving strangely. When I closed and reopened the file, all the goto statements were changed to "forward %n bytes", with all the corresponding labels missing:

(That screenshot also shows the black text issue I mentioned)

And one suggestion I have, I've noticed that animation type 2 usually waits for the animation to finish before continuing (while type 1 doesn't), but for "play animation and return to previous state," it's reversed. It would be nice if that were fixed—or, better yet, if it actually said something like "waiting for end to continue" on the frontend, so you don't have to memorize which is which.

Keep up the good work!

Hey, just ran into an issue with the randomizer. Two enemies that looked like Diamond Weapon showed up in the battle arena (the mandatory battle arena visit before Temple of the Ancients, if that matters), and the game softlocked upon killing them and trying to move on to the next battle. I'm guessing it's because there was no death animation, but I'm not sure? Seed number is 418191.

Their stuff is in the .exe. I have their offsets, but I decided not to throw .exe editing into the mix for the time being while the rando is still finding its feet.
Fair enough; there's definitely a lot of randomization options to work through already, haha. Keep up the good work!

Hey SegaChief! Loving the randomizer; it's fun seeing the weird stuff that can happen with it, haha.

A small thing I wanted to mention though: I just got to the Gold Saucer, and even though I have random initial equipment + materia on, Cait Sith's equipment seems to be unchanged. I'm guessing it has to do with young Cloud using his character slot, but I don't suppose there's any way that could be fixed?
