I recently decided I felt like messing with the field data in Final Fantasy VII, mainly to do some little things like re-add maps/scenarios that were removed at some point in development (eg. Honey Bee Inn) and clean up some of the localization to make it more consistent with other Final Fantasy releases (spell names, correct location/character names to fit in with rest of the VII universe). But I had a question which I have not been able to verify for myself due to the onslaught of technical difficulties I have had recently, mainly surrounding my PC and PS3 dying on me.
Are the field-data files interchangeable between the 3 discs? So for example, if I made some sweeping changes to a field used in all 3 discs (Rocket Town, Junon, Cosmo Canyon, Nibelheim etc), can I import/inject the data files to all 3 discs and not expect problems? I lost all of my save files I was using for testing when my PC died, and then decided to try it on my debug PS3 unit but the HDD crashed on that so I lost my save files.
I am just wanting to make sure so that if I decide to dabble in some bigger changes, I know whether I need to sit back and do the work on any re-used fields again or if I can just use the first copy for everything. I know all the fields I have looked at closely APPEAR to be identical between the 3 discs, I don't know if there is anything that I am missing. Also, the kernel.bin and scene.bin files are able to be between all 3 discs just fine, so I am hoping that field data is the same.
Thanks for any assistance that can be granted.
