Please Use Steam AIO installer unless you want to add other mods; if you want to add more mods then use 7th Heaven 2.3 + iros (no support from me here for 7th Heaven).
The versions number might be different between Steam AIO installer and iros files, but the textures are the same, just use the latest version for both


Download SYW V5.40 steam all in one installer:HERE. or HERE. - update 5.42:HERE. or HERE.
Always use the lastest version to avoid bugs, no support for version 5.40 or less.

Download SYW iros files for 7heaven: HERE. or HERE.
For the french users only, use : this instead
Trailer: HERE.
(Last update: 09/04/2021. Reason: AIO update 5.42)

What's SYW?
The SYW mod represents the most accurate modern take on the PC version of Final Fantasy VII helped by deep learning techniques (such as ESRGAN). The package includes cleaner, more detailed and higher resolution background arts, battlefields, worldmap, magic effects, animations, minigames, menus and videos. All upscaled with AI or done in HD from scratch.


The main goal of the SYW mod is to get as much as details as possible without having an oversharp and overclean effect; also to keep the rendering as natural as possible and constant in quality across the whole game.​



Requirements
-Vanilla Final Fantasy 7 Steam version 1.0.9


Features
-Upscaled HD Fields with full animations (plus char texture for 3D elements like the flipper in the bar for example)(by myself)
-Upscaled HD Battle backgrounds (plus textures for some enemies)(by myself)
-Upscaled HD Worldmap (plus effects)(by myself + Aavock for minimaps)
-From scratch HD Battle effects and magics by Kela51 (plus several fixes by myself)
-Upscaled HD Minigames based on english version of my old waifu + updated texture (Aavock and myself)
-From scratch HD Menus and Font (by Aavock)
-Upscaled HD Animations (first mod with these animations)(by myself)
-Upscaled HD 30fps Movies (first mod with 30 fps fmv)(by myself)
-Modern 3D models (ChaOS by Kaldarasha)
-Psx HQ music (FFNx FF7Music by myst6re)
-Complete sound overhaul (Cosmo Memory by bonez)



Steam All-In-One Installer
-Download and extract the .zip archive file
-Use the .exe install (will take some time)
-Launch the game with the desktop shortcut to setup FF7_SYW


Video of the installation : HERE.
Image

Further Modding: 7th Heaven 2.3+
-Use the lastest updated 7th Heaven version HERE. (Scroll down, click "Assets", and grab 7thHeaven-vxxx_Release.zip).
-Then go in 7th "Settings/General Settings" and bottom-left you'll find FFNx section, click canary then check for updates, say yes and then "Restore defaults" next to save.
-Then go in 7th "Settings/Game Driver - Animated Textures" and set it to ON.


If you don't update 7th Heaven + FFNx, you won't have field's advanced animations plus certain fields will hide stuff, the 30fps FMVs won't work properly too.

If you get slowdown, please disable the "Advanced Texture Animations" option from the iro.
(double clik on this mod and turn off the "Advanced Texture Animations")

Thanks to TrueOdin we get the 30 fps movies to work ingame.
Only 3 movies will remain in 15 fps because of limitation or big 3d models bugs, but on 1 of them you can't tell it's a 15 fps version.

So soon updateds iros will come :
-30 fps fmv (lastest FFNx canary will be mandatory)
-Aavock's menu as an iro
-Some Minigame texture updated (by Aavock and myself)

Stay tuned ^^

Steam AIO 5.28 available:
-Solved a potential colision bug.
-Added an option to auto disable saves in cloud (avoid random delete of save files).
-Added an option to auto backup save file each time the game is launched (with auto-restore if save have been deleted).


As some people have random bug with steam save witch self deleting (witch i wasn't able to reproduice), i added an option ("on" by default) witch backup all the saves each time you launch the SYW control pannel.
If you get a save lost, you just need to lauch SYW control pannel again and a message will ask you if you want to auto-restore the lastest saves.
All the backuped saves will also percist in a subfolder "..\Steam\steamapps\common\FINAL FANTASY VII\Backupsaves" with one subfolder for each save, so you can also revert back to another date save manualy if something went wrong.
