    Hiya

    I've been playing with getting some of the FF7 Mods working on the Switch version, and New Threat (arguably one of the more involved and comprehensive mods) seems to be working great!

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    -) 100+ new bosses and enemies, with every story boss given a new set of moves and AI
    -) About 40 or so 'unique' models made for enemies using in-game monster parts; we got a robot dragon in there somewhere
    -) Quick but rewarding random encounters coupled with longer tougher boss fights
    -) An Extra Battle added to the Battle Square that's a bit like the Monster Arena in FFX
    -) Some new thingies like extra save points, merchants, and the option to skip the lengthier cutscenes and flashback sequences to make the game go by a bit smoother
    -) Extra end-game boss fights to unlock Lv4 Limits and Ultimate Weapons as well as the option to change party leaders from the Operations Room once the party has reached the bottom of North Cave (or North Cavity as the cool kids are saying nowadays)
    -) Fixed the age-old 'perfect game' dilemma of whether to use the third battery or not
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Please note the following fundamental truths:
    1. I didn't write this mod, and cannot support it/troubleshoot it
    2. The original author has no interest in a Non-PC version and thus will not support/troubleshoot this
    Having said that, it seems as though the Switch version of the game is so much the same as the PC version that it will even load the Steam versions executable without issue, so any guides for FF7NT should work fine.

    If there's any interest in FF7 The Reunion, I'm also going to attempt to get that one working too.

    Drop the following in your layeredfs location and enjoy!

    Have you also tried the Remako HD graphics mod? That's the only mod I care about.

    I ported it, although 'ported' is a tenuous term because the game required little in the way of changing - the PC version files are mixed caps and the Switch version demands lower caps to maintain case sensitivity.

    THANK you for posting the link for me btw!

    This is great. I've been working on the graphic mod packs. So far I have ChaOS working along with a custom version of Avalanche Arisen that was made just for Switch. Throw in some other things like newer avatars and opening screen and this is what I've got going so far:
    2019032622072400-EECC236F99339A8D24BA58C2CCB08D91. 2019032622234100-EECC236F99339A8D24BA58C2CCB08D91. 2019032617210800-EECC236F99339A8D24BA58C2CCB08D91.


    I'm looking to do Remako next. You can hit me up on Discord @ AnalogMan#6295 and you can also check in at the Qhimm Forum discord where all these mods and nod creators hang out: https://discord.gg/eZxMj3

    Is there even a widescreen hack for the PS1 version?
