Hello,

I've played through this mod several times, and I recently reinstalled it using 7th heaven with the "hardcore" gameplay mod setting (which I was led to believe was equivalent to installing this the old-fashioned way.)

Everything SEEMED to be fine - I fought the extra boss in Shinra tower (locke, venus, theo) and the other bosses were as hard as I remembered them, but when I got to Cloud's story in Kalm, I was not able to control Sephiroth during the fight with the green dragon, and he auto-killed it in a single crit. That's not how I remember that sequence going. Is something wrong with my copy of the mod? Is the 7th heaven version not actually the correct version?

It may be some conflicts in the kernel via other mods perhaps. Hard to tell, but do you have any other gameplay mods on in 7H?

No, I had no other gameplay mods installed of any kind. Fresh ff7 install with 7th Heaven 2.0 on top, a few model/texture mods, and the Qhimm gameplay suite with your mod selected.

7H may be using a version that had that "bug".
In any case, the only changes worth talking about is in v1.0.7, and even those are quite minor (except that final boss nerf).
The flashback was never hard in this mod. There is an extra boss at the reactor, but that one is quite easy.

I'm guessing it's the same, but it does sound weird you don't have control of sephiroth.

Got it, thank you!

Do you know who I could bug about getting the 7th heaven modpack version updated to the correct one?

That would probably be me. But, imo, these versions are ~99% identical.
One other thing from the top of my head though, iirc, 7H can crash/hang on certain encounters at Nibelheim mountains with this mod. Not sure if that's still true.

Where can i farm sources? I can find them only in the gelnika. There is some other monster some where that can be morphed into sources? I need expecially power sources!

I FINALLY DID IT! After tons of attemps he died!
It was really hard, but i did not really enjoyed this fight, it was too much based on rng because he used lot of adrenalines and i needed to miss his attacks (i farmed luck and speed sources, 255 stat for everyone in the party).
Now i can go finish it!

I did the battle square and killed the final monster there but i didnt get any final attack materia, i also want to source farm but thats hard because some morphs must've been changed i think, the nibel mountains dude (with the ball and chain) next to the reactor doesnt morph into power sources :c
Is there any documentation on what drops what and where to get certain things ?

That doesn't sound right. The battle square mechanics and field aren't changed at all, so I'm not sure what to say there.
You sure it was the "special" battle?
From wiki:
https://finalfantasy.fandom.com/wiki/Final_Attack_(Final_Fantasy_VII)

For documentation on drops etc, an enemy editor is perfect, like Hojo or Proud Clod.
https://forums.qhimm.com/index.php?topic=8481.0
Hojo is a bit easier at first as you can see the drops at once, but the links are dead, so getting it may be a bit hard.
Prod Clod is a more comprehensive editor, so a tiny bit more work to see the drops.

In any case, you need to open the scene.bin file in your .../Final Fantsy VII/data/battle folder.
Both programs have a list of scenes.
If you use Proud Clod, in order to see drops, goto: Enemy Management -> Enemy Stats. You must do this for each scene.
