If there have been other projects to recreate Final Fantasy VII and they haven't been shut down, it might be safe. I know that most people would rather play the shinier, PC one, but their legal department could still think differently. Hopefully, they don't go after you.Edit: I hope I'm not coming off as a fear-monger...
Quote from: Spooniest on July 17, 2012, 08:16:42 PMI really don't think they would go after such a simple project. From the way they make their games lately, it seems like they've forgotten that 8-bit games even existed.SQUARE-ENIX: "NES games? Who plays (YECCHH) NES games?" (nose pointed up in the air)
Quote from: SageOwl on July 17, 2012, 08:03:50 PMIf this rom included the parts missing from the game that I addressed earlier then I'd prefer it over the original Playstation version, let alone some half-assed "HD" enhancement.
Quote from: SageOwl on July 17, 2012, 10:05:27 AMAlbeit they did c&d Crimson Echoes and that was just a fan made game; although given the principles for that action this would have to be an original sequel to the original for them to have grounds. Fortunately they gave them the middle finger with Flames of Eternity.Square can just concentrate on another FFXIV disappointment rather than giving genuine work a hard time.Any idea when the next progressive patch will come out? Wouldn't mind seeing some of these newer changes in real-time gameplay.
Quote from: Hiei- on July 18, 2012, 05:50:59 AMBut Square-Enix was planning a DS remake of Chrono Trigger. The "FF7" PC version which is planned is not a remake at all, it's just a new release with cloud support.
QuoteBut enough about that. Unless such a situation materializes, we have nothing to worry about.
QuoteI'm attempting to make a variant of the one Chpexo used. I'll show you how it turns out and if it's worth using.
Quote from: Garoth Moulinoski on July 18, 2012, 08:32:08 AMIt's still a release and it's still their property... I mean, is what you're saying "Because Chrono Trigger DS was a remake, they C&D'd Crimson Echoes; but Final Fantasy VII Steam is a re-release, so they won't be going out hunting people"? They can. As long as they hold the rights to their property, they can. Not saying this particular project might be C&D'd (I'm not really sure where it stands, but I, personally, don't think it can stand a chance, but hey, I'm not a big law brain), and it would most likely give them bad PR (like when they shut down Crimson Echoes), but they do have to protect their properties. :/
Quote from: Mirby on July 19, 2012, 02:55:53 AMAlso hi Garoth long time no see.
Quote from: InfamousKnight on July 19, 2012, 02:40:17 PMI use Lunar IPS to patch the roms if you didn't already know. If you know any bugs in that program, tell me. Because I was playing this game on my ps2 and there was some pretty bad bugs in the game. Like at the train, I would do something wrong, then the game would give me some head ache with nonstop stairs on somewhere I'm not even supposed to go.. Then the game wouldn't let me go back to my real destination. Would it be because of Lunar IPS?
Quote from: Nerd42 on July 20, 2012, 12:11:16 AMWhat does "they have to protect their property" even mean anyway?No patents are at stake here.Making copyright claims on the original Final Fantasy VII is not affected by separate fan projects.The only issue might be trademark, not copyright or patent. Trademarks can become generic if not enforced, but fan projects are rarely threatened over trademark, normally it's copyright and they have no legal obligation to bother threatening a non-commercial fan project on that. They do it cause they're bastards and/or tyrants and that's the only reason.

Quote from: Mirby on July 20, 2012, 03:35:58 PMZFGC, think you made Super Smash Karts or somethin' Anyways I'm closely following progress on this; look forward to more updates :3
QuoteAlso I was playing some of this on a recent train ride. The music could use a little work, honestly, but everything else is very well done. Nice work translatin' and the other stuff you've done too, Lugia2009.
QuoteRandom news:Coatlesscarl made another Final Fantasy 7 soundtrack with Famitracker. It would still so nice to have VRC6 options for this game to hear his 8-bit covers there.Final Fantasy VII - 8-bit Opening - Bombing Mission
