Firstly, you might want to read this thread, here (not a long one):

It's a music mod for the Steam Version of FF7, that puts the music in .ogg format, in high quality. It allows for music replacement.

Therefore, I made this:

INSTRUCTIONS: First, install Jotaro's .ogg mod, and then take the .zip file ( I provided you with, and place it into the 'music_ogg' folder in the 'data' folder, in your FF7 Steam folder.

The file path for it is thus: C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\FINAL FANTASY VII\data\music_ogg, provided you are using a Windows OS and you bought the game through Steam, I suppose. Let me know if it gives you any trouble.

It changes the music that plays during the final moments of Cloud's flashback in Mideel, so that it is more like the PSX version, with a certain person getting lifted into the air as the music crescendos in volume, and disappearing in a flash of light as the cymbal clashes for the last time. I say it's 'more like the PSX version' because the timing of everything (the text boxes opening and closing, new scenes loading in and out) is changed when you don't have to load from a CD, so I had to actually change the tempo of some of the a tempo parts, to make everything fit. I used audacity. Handy little program.

It's kind of a big moment. I know it's a 21 year old game, but it still feels spoilery. Those of you who have played FF7 (I'm gonna say that's a lot of you) will know what I'm talking about.

Look, I did work and didn't just hang around and get drunk! :) Wow look at me adulting.
