Install Guide

This guide was based on the official 7th Heaven install guide. I've written this guide so people can download and install my mod, without having to go to multiple websites. I've also streamlined the process. This should make installing 7th Heaven and mods a bit easier.

If you want videos that help install this, go to the bottom of the page. If you have questions not answered on this page, try the FAQ first.

Step 1: Installing Final Fantasy 7

Original Disc Version (1998)

 



  • When you get the choice between Maximum Install and Standard Install, choose Maximum Install. 
  • Install the game in a folder that is NOT Program Files, Program Files (x86) or Users. For example C:\Games\Final Fantasy VII.

Square Enix Store Version (2012)



  • Install the game in a folder that is NOT Program Files, Program Files (x86) or Users. For example C:\Games\Final Fantasy VII.
  • You will lose achievements, cloud saves and the trainer after the modding process.

Steam Version (2013)


  • Install the game in a folder that is NOT Program Files, Program Files (x86) or Users. For example C:\Games\Final Fantasy VII.
  • You will lose achievements, cloud saves and the trainer after the modding process.
If you already have the Steam version of Final Fantasy 7 installed in either a Program Files, Program Files (x86) or Users folder, you will have to move it. See this Steam migration guide for a step-by-step process.

Step 2: Downloading the Setup Files

The game needs to be prepared for mod compatibility. You will need several programs. I have combined these programs into a single zip file.

Download Modding FF7 Setup Files


Once you have Modding FF7 Setup Files 1.0.zip downloaded, unpack it anywhere you'd like (Downloads folder, Desktop). In the folder that you've just unpacked, there are several files.

Alternatively, you can download these files separately, from their original source:
Go to the Qhimm forum threads for FF7 Game Converter or 7th Heaven for further information about these programs.

Step 3: Mount the ISO

Before you can run the FF7 Game Converter, you have to trick Final Fantasy VII that the original CD is in the tray. You can do this by mounting the blank FF7DISC1.iso from the Setup Files folder above to a Virtual Drive. 

In Windows 8 and 10 you can mount the ISO simply by right-clicking it and clicking mount. For other OSes there are multiple programs that can mount ISO files. Daemon Tools Lite is a good choice. 

Alternatively, you can rename a USB Flash Drive to FF7DISC1 or rename a Hard Drive to FF7DISC1. This does the same trick as mounting the ISO, but I think the ISO is the most user-friendly method.

Step 4: Run the FF7 Game Converter

Run the FF7_GameConverter_7H.exe file found in the Setup Files folder. A command prompt will pop up.


The converter might not find your installation of FF7. Look it up in Windows Explorer and click on the address bar and press Ctrl + C to copy it. Go back to the command prompt and paste using the right mouse button. Press Enter.


A configuration window will pop up. Check the settings are to your liking. The default settings usually are. Just make sure the Sound Device (see image above) is set to your primary audio device. It should choose that by default. If you have another device set as your Sound Device, you will not have sound.

Click on OK when done.


You will be asked to install the Laptop Keyboard Patch. This is a must if you have a laptop (press Y and then Enter). If not, just press N and then Enter.

I have had trouble without this patch on my desktop computer. While I cannot confirm that this change was what made it work in the end if you are in doubt just install the Laptop Keyboard Patch.

Step 5: Install 7th Heaven

Extract 7th Heaven (7H_1.54.zip) found in the Setup Files folder to any location you want. Run 7thHeaven.exe to start the program. It might be useful to make Shortcut to Desktop of this executable, as you will use it each time you want to play FF7 with mods.

When you first open 7th Heaven, it will ask you if you want to set it up with Default Settings. This should do most of the work. You only have to verify that these settings are correct:



  • Library Location: ...\mods\7th Heaven
  • FF7 Exe: ...\ff7.exe
  • Aali Modpath: ...\mods\Textures
  • Movie Path: ...\data\movies
  • Subscriptions: iros://Url/http$pastebin.com/raw.php?i=dDBkYkDu
  • Extra Folders:
    • music
    • direct
  • Check Box: Automatically import mods in library folder
When you activate certain mods, change FF7.exe to the following:
  • The Reunion - Menu Overhaul: ...\ff7_mo.exe
  • The Reunion - Beacause: ...\ff7_bc.exe
  • The Reunion - Beacause + Menu Overhaul: ...\ff7_bc.exe
NOTE: There are updates to 7th Heaven (1.55 and 1.56) but these introduce some new bugs that make the install process a bit more complex. Version 1.54 works and is simple to setup, so that's why I stick with it for this install guide. 

Step 6: OpenGL driver configuration

Click on Workshop > OpenGL driver configuration and set up a configuration:

Page 1


If you want to run the game full screen, keep Window Size X and Y at 0. Keep the full screen checkbox checked.

If you want to run the game in windowed mode, set the Window Size X and Y to the width and height that you want. Uncheck the full screen checkbox.

Page 2


Preserve Aspect when off stretches the screen. This doesn't look great, so I recommend to leave it checked.

Dialog Boxes makes the game's dialog boxes semi-transparent, allowing you to see the environment behind the dialog boxes. I recommend you check this box.

Linear Filter makes the game look better. Check this box.

Postprocessing makes the game look better. Check this box.

Leave the postprocessing shader to what it is.

Page 3


V-Sync and New Timer are the settings most people will want to be checked. Read the other options' descriptions and decide for yourself if you need them.

Page 4


Keep the option set as VGMStream. It must be selected for music to work.

Click OK to close the OpenGL Config Settings.

Step 7: Installing yuv.frag

The way that the FMVs in Remako have been generated requires you to overwrite a file. Take the yuv.frag file that you downloaded above and put it in the shaders folder of your FF7 installation. Overwrite when asked.

The path of the shaders folder probably looks something like this:
  • C:\Games\Steam\steamapps\common\FINAL FANTASY VII\shaders
  • C:\Games\FINAL FANTASY VII\shaders

Step 8: Installing the rest of Remako

Now that you have 7th Heaven set up, you can install Remako. If you have not downloaded it yet, here is the download page.

Once you have it downloaded, extract the zip files and place the .iro file(s) in your FF7 mods folder. It should be in your Final Fantasy VII installation.

The path of the mods folder probably looks something like this:
  • C:\Games\Steam\steamapps\common\FINAL FANTASY VII\mods
  • C:\Games\FINAL FANTASY VII\mods

Step 8: Installing the Remako FMVs

The mods upscaled Full Motion Videos need to be installed manually and don't need the 7th Heaven Mod Manager. If you do not want the updated FMVs in Remako, you can skip this step.

Unpack the separate FMVs download or the Complete Download zip file, depending on which you downloaded. Drag the movies folder to the data folder in your FF7 installation. Overwrite when asked.

The path of the data folder probably looks something like this:
  • C:\Games\Steam\steamapps\common\FINAL FANTASY VII\data
  • C:\Games\FINAL FANTASY VII\data

Step 10: Enabling the mods

Once you've placed the .iro file into that folder, start up 7th Heaven. Go to the Library tab and search for 'Remako'. Click Activate on all the parts Remako that you want activated. Now you have Remako installed and ready to play. Go to the Active Mods page and click on Launch Game.

If this does not work, you might need to Import the IRO files. Click on Import... and import the IRO file from the 'From IRO archive' tab.

Have fun!

Other Mods

If you want to install other mods and need help with that, I recommend you go to the official 7th Heaven Modding Install tutorial. Go to Step 5 and it will tell you all you need to know how to install other mods.

The mod has been tested for compatibility with other mods that you can load through the 7th Heaven Mod Manager, including The Reunion (R03C) as well as the many great mods that improve the game's 3D models.

You can find other mods within the 7th Heaven Mod Manager. Others you can download from the Qhimm forums.

    5. Searching for "Remako" also did not work for me. I used the "Import" button in 7th heaven and the "from IRO archive", looked for the location of the .iro remako file and it worked like a charm.

      This alternative should be included in step 7 in this blog.

    1. Yes you must copy then drag and drop your save files that you want to use from where they are currently and place them in the saves folder created by the 7th heaven launcher

    2. they will be where you would find ff7.exe and the folder says saves

  5. I followed all the steps. Fire up the game- it goes black after the squaresoft logo then crashes and says something 'very bad' happened. If I press any button, it fades out either the eidos or squaresoft graphics and just goes to black and crashes. Thoughts?

    4. I dont have the reunion/beacause mods either, and mine does the same, crashes after the eidos or squaresoft intro. says this program stopped working. I am playing on a laptop and i am unable to open the OpenGL driver menu to configure it.... not sure if this matters. The game opens and plays normal without any mods and its cracked.

    6. Hey everyone...So I ran into this same issue and found a solution to this and got my version to work. I don't know for sure if this works on other installs off FFVII, but it does work for the Steam version. It looks like there is a bug with the newest version of 7th Heaven ver 1.55 that causes this. There are two solutions. One is to revert to the previous version (1.54) OR you have to start the game in steam, play until the first save spot and save your game once in all 10 blocks. Once you do that exit the game and go to your "\Documents\Square Enix\FINAL FANTASY VII Steam\user_(insert yours)" and copy the contents in that folder to your save folder in the modded version. Start up the modded game in 7th Heaven and you're good to go! Here is the original link that I found this out at.

    7. I'm using 7th heaven 1.5.6 and I did not have this issue.

    8. if yo are having issues with reunion/beacause mod remember to read 7th Heavens installation guide it tells you exactly what to do.

      Delete
  6. do you think it is possible to get this mod, without 7th heaven, to make a version steam version so as not to lose the achievements?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I would really appreciate this! I've heard 7th Heaven and Reunion don't play nice together and I'm terrified of losing my save. Would much rather just have files to drag-and-drop into place if at all possible.

      Delete
  7. There's a step missing from both this list and the 7th Heaven guide that was necessary to get texture mods to work. It's shown in the video, but I'll save you having to watch the entire thing:

    In your Final Fantasy VII install folder, find "ff7_opengl.cfg". At the bottom under Modder Options, change "direct_mode = off" to "direct_mode = on".

    The Remako mod appeared to work without this, but all of the other texture mods, while active, failed to actually load new textures without this set.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Mine was already set to on (I never changed it). Be very careful with doing this, as even a minor change in these settings seems to cause the game to stop running correctly. Make a backup of that file before you alter it just in case.

      Delete
    2. If that doesn't work, you can always add "mod_path = Textures" to the same "ff7_opengl.cfg", it worked for me

      Delete
  8. I've followed every step but I still can't see the changes, I've put the mod in ff7/mods/7th heaven, imported it and activated it, put it the first in load order but still haven't managed to make it work

  10. When clicking Launch Game, I get a box titled "Error starting FF7" Inside the box is a huge string of text that I cannot copy and paste, and unfortunately I cannot past a screenshot in here either... I'm going to try to type it all out, which SUCKS. I really hope I get a response for this, lol.

    System.ApplicationException: STATUS_INTERNAL_ERROR: Unknown error in injected assembler code.

    1. Right click the 7thheaven and set and set the compatibility to run as as administrator. apply and close.
      Then find the FF7 exe you are using eg.. ff7_bc right click and set compatibility to run in 640x480. Don't worry the opengl plugin will override this anyway.
      Next go back into 7thheaven and try launching the game.

    2. Yep, settings exes to 640x480 fixed it! Thanks!

    3. THIS FIXED MY ISSUE!!!
      However, i had one more step

      If it seems like you are only seeing half of the image on the screen - right click on desk top -> go to your "screen settings" -> look at "Scale and Layout" -> make sure you are at 100% - otherwise anything over that will multiply the size of the play window

    3. After exhausting pretty much all possibilities, I don't think Remako works with Reunion, or at least not the R05C all-in-one installer. If I just do a clean install of the game, convert it and install Remako in 7thHeaven, Remako works flawlessly. However, if I install Reunion at any time, either before or after Remako, the latter stops working. I'm thinking it has something to do with Beacause, as that has to edit flevel.lgp to change the script and that's conflicting with Remako. Then again, I'm eight years old and I have no idea what a video game even is so idk man.

      Delete
    4. I *think* I've found a way to make both work at the same time! I used the unpack .iro tool in 7thHeaven to extract the Remako files and dumped everything into the mods/reunion folder. For example I extracted the Remako menu avatars .iro and moved the menu folder into the mods/reunion folder. Hopefully that makes sense!

  23. Before trying to run the game via 7th Heaven, launch the game by itself by clicking the FINAL FANTASY VII game launcher. Windows or Steam will often realize you need distribution packs from Microsoft and proceed to install them. Once you can play the video game by itself normally. Then proceed to try to use 7th Heaven to run the game.

      Now, just keyboard layout is wonky. When it asks you to enter your name for Cloud, no key works as a Select button. So I couldn't get further than that. I'll have to mess with it later. Took me an hour of messing with this just to get it this far.

  29. It is weird. I've gotten all the other graphical mods working, but not Remako.

    1. I fianlly got remako mob to work for me :)) all's i did was Go to C:\Users\\AppData\Roaming\7thWorkshop and delete everything. reinstalled ff7 from stream, did the patch, then i unzipped 7th heaven files to desktop & did a fresh install of 7th Heaven 1.54 (don't update),,,,,, then when 7th heaven loads up i let it put library location in default place, (DON'T CHANGE IT) NOT IN MOD FOLDER AS I USALLY DID, that's all i did different and everthing works great, here is example F:\SteamLibrary\steamapps\common\FINAL FANTASY VII\7th Heaven
      F:\SteamLibrary\steamapps\common\FINAL FANTASY VII\FF7_bc.exe
      F:\SteamLibrary\steamapps\common\FINAL FANTASY VII\mods\Textures
      F:\SteamLibrary\steamapps\common\FINAL FANTASY VII\data\movies\
      hope this helps got all mods working and remako
      I couldn't get remako too work until I did this!!

      Delete
    2. Aha. I did suspect that it was not necessary to put the remako IRO file into the final fantasy vii\mods folder. However, I had an issue with text being too large and not displaying correctly so I had to troubleshoot, and I updated FF7 the Game Converter tool and 7th heaven and had no issues what-so-ever. I wonder if the earlier versions included in this blog were included for a reason, or if they are here by accident.

  30. This is awesome! I love it. Two questions:
    1) What ordered item should this mod appear in inside 7thHeaven?
    2) How will we apply updates to newer versions? Is that performed inside 7th heaven or do we recheck this blog?

    2. I've been continually confused about the selection of mods and which ones "The Reunion" includes in its "several mods in one" package. I see this incredibly long list of mods and think "arent most of those texture upgrades included in the reunion? Can you mess anything up having more than one texture mod for the same set of textures?"

      The second question I had regarding these mods is whether there is a single link or database that lists the download locations and descriptions of all popular FF7 mods. I had a hell of a time trying to find that, and then eventually just settled for the ones listed in the 7th heaven mod manager catalogue.

  32. Thank-you for this!! The game looks so damn good for originally being so ugly with its ancient polygons and low-resolution, static backgrounds.

    I spent 13 hours trying to correct an issue with FF game converter that for some reason messed up the font/text in game and made it impossible to play correctly. Many dialogue boxes were incomplete and you couldnt see which choices to make when talking to characters. It also showed up when accessing the main menu in the game. Many of the words and data were cut off, jumbled together or missing entirely.

    I'm not sure exactly what fixed it, but after re-installing all mods about 4 times, I changed windows custom DPI scaling to 100%, re-installed the steam version of FF7, re-copied that version into another folder, and then one by one got the latest version of several mod tools included in the "Modding FF7 Setup Files" download. Some of those are out-dated (7th heaven and game converter mainly).

    The text problem did not occur until I used the game converter file. Then, after installing "The Reunion" mod, the text got even worse and the game would freeze on random dialogue boxes. I was certain I did everything mentioned in this blog except for the tool included in the "Modding FF7 Setup Files" used for removing FF7 windows registry keys, which may have been the culprit in this situation. It's included in the step-by-step tutorial video you linked at the bottom of this blog, but is not included in your own list of steps.

    This was my first experience modding FF7. At first I thought the 7th heaven manager, this blog, and http://forums.qhimm.com/ would be enough to make it a painless process, but it turned out to be a bit frustrating. Now that everything is working (for now), I am extremely pleased with having a butt-load of upgraded textures in one of my classic favorite games that I havent played in ages.

    I'm curious, what other mods would you suggest besides Remako, The Reunion and a mod to upgrade the FMV(cut-scenes)? Those 3 seem to cover quite a lot.

  37. I got the mod to work. It was a combination of watching the videos and the text explanations for me. The mod works wonders, it really is worth trouble shooting. I have no other mods installed but the battle text where the ATB gauge, health bars etc are located are all messed up. I'm not sure how to describe it, words on top of words and missing bars. Anyone that has run across this I will give you a donut for helping me!

    1. Which .exe is 7th Heaven pointing to? It should be ff7.exe

      Delete
    2. I got it working flawlessly. First of all I would say to test on new game as it runs through a cinematic, the map, and a battle sequence all really quickly for trouble shooting. I redid all the installation from the 2 videos above and I got it to work after 18 hours. Do not give up. It is totally worth it, my wife was making fun of the squares in the unmodified version lol. This is better than upscaling or adding simple filters. I noticed 2 things wrong with the videos though if you are only trying to get the remako mod to work I would suggest to do this. In the first video or top video he says to add the bc ff7.exe. Do not do that. CaptRabau use the standard ff7.exe. The second thing I noticed was when they added the remako mod they put it in the 7th heaven folder. Do not do this. Go to where you installed ff7 and look for ff7's mod folder and place the remako mod directly in the "mods" folder. Then when 7th heaven asks for the library location select the location of your ff7 "mods" folder. Also I had under library in 7th heaven I had to "import" from "Iro archive" and browse manually. I hope this works for you all. Other than that if you follow the guide and videos it should work. I was able to get the mod to work, get the battle health bars to work, and my cinematics stopped saying not a png file. Good luck everyone!

      Then find the FF7.exe you are using (ex. ff7.exe or ff7_bc.exe). Right-click and set compatibility to run in 640x480. Don't worry the OpenGL plugin will override this setting later. Go back into 7th Heaven and try launching the game.

  43. Hi people, for what i've seen & read, i found that the mod is so good. FF7 is my favorite game all-time. Anyway, i have a problem with the installation just at the beginning :(. When i run the game converter, it doesn't work. I've tried with everything, run as administrator, disable uac, enviroment variables, run cmd as administrator and then run the game converter, i always got that red box with the message "installation aborted. access denied. run ..... with administrator privileges" or something like that. I also tried to decompress with winrar and then edit the code that check for administrator privileges on the .bat file, with that did i run the .bat, it works until i have to put de directory of the game, i put it and then cmd automatically closes itself.

    Please help me with this. And thanks.

    PD: also i'm administrator, and the files are in a folder where i have total control. Ah, something more, i have win 10 home edition i think, that could be a problem?

    Amazing job, i hope i can try it time soon

    I did everything as mention in the guide step by step (using the 1998 version) but there is no sound. Every time the game is trying to start a new music I have an error messsage "can't open music in ....ogg" The FF7/music/vgmstream folder is empty so that explains it. The FF7 installer did not ask for cd2.3.4 so I might have missing files I guess.

    2. update: Ok it seems after installing the Reunion patch (Ro5c) the HD backgrounds are not working anymore . I tried activating the "direct_mode" from the ff7_opengl.cfg file but still no hope. I guess the 1998 it's not working with the Remako and Reunion at the same time. It's been two hours of work trying to make this work I'll give up for now.

    3. For those of you on the 1998 version the music patch is available on nexusmods then you can play with the vgmstream flawlessly. I'm still stuck without the pre-rendered background working but the battle scenes are working so there might be something the Reunion patch does that breaks the pre-rendered from working because it was working before I installed it. BTW, don't install the Reunion mod AFTER Remako because it's adding custom FMVs at a lower resolutions. If anyone got some clues to make the pre-rendered background working (something in the .cfg I guess?) I'm out of ideas. Can't wait to play this :)

    Nothing is happening. This seems an awful lot of trouble to go to, as well, I will echo. You really can't expect video game fans to go through such a bunch of rigamarole just to play a game with "nicer graphics." That is not how human beings work.

    1. You are absolutely right about the hassle to make it working (mine doesn't work either now with the reunion patch applied).
      If FFVII would be freeware/abandonware it would be easier because we could just patch the game in a working state, zip it and upload it online and everyone could have it working in HD without issues. I believe the op did a great job explaining step-by-step how to do it but unfortunately it's a hit-or-miss for most people.

      PS: You probably know it already but make sure you are using FF7 Game Converter in Administrator Mode.

Now I honestly haven't played that much FF7 before but the opening intro doesn't look that different from how I remember it, and the character models are exactly the same.

      As a matter of fact, now that I hear the comparison, I think the songs are actually the YPG 235 versions found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SCM1-LIHlKg

      Are they being run through some kind of filter on the modded disc?

  68. I have this error?

    WRN: Assembly binding logging is turned OFF.
    To enable assembly bind failure logging, set the registry value [HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Fusion!EnableLog] (DWORD) to 1.
    Note: There is some performance penalty associated with assembly bind failure logging.
    To turn this feature off, remove the registry value [HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Fusion!EnableLog].

  69. Gameconverter was stuck on patching for me and the only way I could get it to work was by resetting my PC entirely which was a pretty long process. FF7-REMOVE-Keys wasn't working for me so I had to reset my pc. To avoid this I suggest creating a restore point (system restore) before going through with this install guide. That way you can revert back to the default registry files as that seems to be the main culprit behind Gameconverter stuck on patching.

    1. In the settings of 7th Heaven, there's a tab called audio. Is it set to VGMStream?

      If that isn't it, search for this step above in the install guide:
      "A configuration window will pop up. Check the settings are to your liking. The default settings usually are. Just make sure the Sound Device (see image above) is set to your primary audio device. It should choose that by default. If you have another device set as your Sound Device, you will not have sound."

  72. This is the most unfriendly install for a mod I've ever seen, I'm not a noob when it comes to this stuff but I got the game to run exactly once by following your exact directions, went to play the game again today and now it doesn't work at all. You need to make a standalone installer for this or make a version that is simply drag and drop... judging from the comments section here I'm definitely not the only one that has issues with your ass backwards install method, the FF IX Moguri mod doesn't have all these hoops I have to jump through to get it to work. Most people probably don't care about this having compatibility with other mods, which I assume was your intention with this install process.

    1. Believe me, I know that it's not the most friendly install procedure out there. Problem is that a lot of it is because the Steam version of FF7 can barely be modded. So half of the install guide is dedicated to convert it back to the 1997 version. But perhaps I can still find some way to streamline this for the next release with an installer of some sort (without compatibility with other mods).

      FFIX isn't as messed up as FF7, so Moguri mod will be easier to install because of that.

    2. I meant 1998 instead of 1997
