    Yes you’ll need to purchase FF7 for Switch and have a hacked switch running CFW compatible with layeredfs. Then just download the project and drop it into it’s correct folder on your SD card. PLEASE make sure to support the original creators. I in no way support or condone the act of piracy.

    Also worth looking into HD backgrounds. We have even better options that just waifu2x now. Take a look at the Moguri Mod. Same thing is being done for 7. Code has already been written by some people to train the AI and then convert your images. Definitely worth a look.

    This already looks like the FFVII we all actually wanted (or most of us, didn't have to be a full-blown 10-year developent project, square...).

    @Arolandis The only reason I’ve not replaced the backgrounds is because the base version of FF7 has a max file size cap on the LGP’s correlating to the exe. With aali’s drivers on PC that’s been by passed, but currently on the Switch version nobody has yet converted over the drivers to work, or created something that can do the same thing. Leaving me with this massive project to fit into that little 2gb per LGP limit. So the backgrounds and such will stay vanilla. but honestly, on the Switch version especially in handheld mode like we all will most likely prefer to play this project, the vanilla backgrounds don’t look bad at all. But that’s the only reason that hasn’t been done yet. If someone breaks that cap I’ll then add upscaled backgrounds field and battle to the project.

    @MrEffler22 can you link to this limit mod? Maybe I will try to look at it

    Edit: ah, ok. This is graphics driver for implementing OpenGL. So it can be done by making homebrew launching game. But it will be too much to do.

    Edit2: but it looks like there is opengl code in Switch executables.

    @masagrator yeah the issue is going to require someone with knowledge of coding to recode the drivers to work with the Switch hardware. I have ran into an issue though I’d like to throw out there if anyone can assist me. When it comes to High_us.lgp models and some World Map models like the Juno boat I’m running into rainbow texture issues for my models when I size the textures down to a max of 256. All textures are converted to 24bit because that’s what the FF7 native format is. Does anybody know how I can fix this issue? I haven’t really dove deep into the issue because I’ve been busy porting over everything, but if I need to I can take the time to figure it out myself. Just wanted to throw the question out there just in case somebody knew a quick fix for this. Thanks in advance.

    Weird, but at the beginning of elf file is exactly 2GB value.
    upload_2019-4-21_13-50-56.png

    Maybe this is the limit? :v

    Edit: nah, it looks like there is plenty of these values.

    Would you be willing to take a look at the files in the Shaders folder and tell me if you can figure out how to turn off the text pixel filter or the background anti-alias filter? They're all OpenGL shaders stored as text files

    @RAWRzilla22 I'm right there with you, if anyone can figure that out please lend a hand and do so. That would help the game a lot. Also, copy over your previous NT comment from the other thread about us joining forces and post it on this thread so everyone can see. I’m not personally a fan of NT but I know that a lot of people out there are. So I’m all for giving the project two versions for the player to choose from.

    It looks like executables are out of question without sdk. subsdk0 contains opengl instructions, but without sdk we don't know what is what.

    Is there a way to install the "Beacause" mod with this?
    It was ported to the Switch, but Omnislash and Beacause have a few files with the same names.

    Also, will there be an option at some point to keep the original character menu portraits?

    I have no knowledge about this, and I am more than likely wrong, but maybe the texture problem has something to do with shaders?

    @Kotomine Kirei you can choose to keep the original avatars by just not installing the menu_us.lgp in the project folder. That lgp is what controls the menu changes.

    Wow, this is awesome!
    But, the mod isn't finished, isn't it? (It covers from the start to Junon, as the description says). I'll wait expectantly for it to be finished.
