Tsunamods is the name of a community not an individual or team,

Tsunamods is a collective of Final Fantasy 7 / 8 & 9 Modders and Toolmakers please don't confuse Tsunamix with Tsunamods.
We know this line has been blurred in the past, however, there are distinct lines between Tsunamods Team, Tsunamods Community, and Tsunamix

Project Echo-S will one day be a fully completed voice acting mod, every Main character, Minor character and NPC will be given a voice. You'll be able to experience the game in a whole new way.

This is a huge community project and everyone can be involved. The sheer amount of voice actors needed for this project is beyond crazy. But we aren't going to be putting in just any lines, we wanna make sure they're all reasonable.
If we are going to this effort to make a mod of this calibre, we're going to do it the best we can, first time.
We aren't pulling a Skyrim here, each NPC will be a new voice.

There will be no super bad acting, no awful quality lines.
We will do our best to train each NPC's actor to a standard that is bearable.
As well as editing each audio clip to make it sound the best we can.

This mod will also contain a few of it's own features (Some of which will come via later updates) :

- Totally uncensored
- New modernised translation of the game from "The Reunion" mod.
- Togglable Subtitles to replace the text boxes
- Togglable Automatic scrolling of text (No more pressing "OK" to skip text)
- Voiced choice dialog


Playable demo's will also be released as time goes so you can get a feel for how it will be to experience this in-game.
I am unsure of how many, or at what points in the game these will be released. But there will be a few.

Will this necessarily require Sister Ray?

@tsunamix will correct me if I'm wrong but I don't think it does require Sister Ray. Because it uses something called Ultrasound with the game. and only requires that

Echo-S can either be a stand alone mod (I think) or it'll be used with 7th heaven, for now.
In the future there may be a sister ray version with extra features. But no, it won't need Sister Ray.

Calling all Echo-S Beta Test seekers, I need you.


I have a task you can all greatly help me with. I'll admit it's not fun. It's not the sort of Beta Test you are looking for.
But unfortunately it's something that needs to get done in order to continue.

The aim of this Beta is surrounding the Day/Night and Weather system.
Now please listen carefully, if you decide to assist me on this, these are things I need you to do:

Start a New Game and agree to all the selection options (Except for Thunder if you suffer from Epilepsy).
If you did not choose to have Thunder, please also write this down on your notes.

Stand on SCREEN 1 and DO NOT LEAVE! Just stand there and wait.
You must not have the menu open! Only open the menu to check the time ready for notes.

Turn your music volume to 0 and sfx volume to 100. This will help you notice when something happens.
I recommend having 2 monitors so you can stick this on your spare one and just leave it running while you do something else.

You will see that the time of day will change, and occasionally the weather will too.
This is what I need to test.

In order to get the best possible results for me please have a notepad open and type down every time a weather variant starts. Then also when it finishes, type that down too. That way I can work out how long they last.

If anything odd happens like Thunder changing your screen fade to the wrong colour. Note that down too and just tell me the time it happened. You'll see an example below.

So when either of these things occur open your in game menu and you will see that where Gil used to be there is also now a "Date" and "Time". That is what I need you to note down.

So your notes should like something like this:

Image


If my Math is correct then it shouldn't happen too often for the players, and it shouldn't last too long either.
I'm aiming for a perfect balance.

Leave the game running for as long as you can, the longer the better.

You are capable of saving your game and closing it. Coming back later and continuing.
So please also do this if you need too. This does not need to happen in 1 sitting.

When you finish your test please also put the in game Date and Time of when you stopped testing at the bottom of your notes.
You can then post your notes in this thread for me.

You can download this Beta here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1ChsGwn ... sp=sharing

When downloaded, move it to FF7/Mods/7th heaven
Unzip it and it should then appear in your 7th Heaven mod list.

The only mods you should use is Echo-S, and ESUI if you feel like it.
Just make sure ESUI is above Echo-S.

Thank you all so much for your help in advance. You will all get different results and I can use those to create the perfect system. Because it'll be annoying it just rains forever.
