Team Avalanche’s Graphical Overhaul is yet another brilliant mod. It is a sizable project as the projects aim is to replace the world textures as well as the 2D backgrounds textures within the game. Currently the patch is at beta9, and is at an overwhelmingly brilliant stage. There is a remarkable difference between the game’s world textures and such before and after applying this patch. Team Avalanche are led by sl1982 and Timu Sumisu, with others within the team.
The graphical overhaul is pretty awesome, as it comes with a GUI overhaul, which improves the graphical quality of the main user interface (the menu, battle bar etc), upgraded spell effects, a world map re-texture (you can opt to upgrade the Diamond weapon field model and replace the old maps), and visually enhanced Barret and Diamond Weapon battle models. For anyone looking to mod their Final Fantasy 7 PC, I would highly recommend using this mod.
To install this mod, simply download the mod from the link provided below, and run the installer. Once you run the installer, you will be given options to choose what you do and don’t want to install so please be sure to check through the list. Also, lease make sure that you already have the 1.02 retail patch installed, as well as Aali’s Custom Graphics Driver, as this mod will not function without these two patches. If you do intend to use this and the Phoenix Rejuvenation Project mod, I would suggest that you first install the Phoenix Rejuvenation Project, followed by this one, as I have personally had some problems with installing this first.
