Thanks. The funny thing is that was the first one I took, I took 5 more that I thought were better at the time, but none of them came out nearly this nice.

It's kind of funny, being in the same article as Koji Kondo, of all people. ;)

So...apparently Final Fantasy VII (the 2012 re-release) uses vgmstream to play the loggs. That's very odd...and it's because of something called FF7music by Ficedula which is hack/mod to the game. Did Square Enix really just rip off other people's work and repack the game to sell?

If so I find it amusing :)
by bxaimc at 11:34 AM EDT on August 30, 2012
It's hilarious. But a really old build from before November 2011? Come on!, at least grab a more recent one before publishing the game! :P

I read somewhere (don't remember) that SQEX didn't do the "remastering" of the game. It was some French company called "DotEmu". So I guess they're the ones to blame for all of the nonsense.

hcs, and the countless others who spent their knowledge, effort and time to create vgmstream probably aren't even credited.

Furthermore, a copy of the ISC License should have been distributed with this version of Final Fantasy 7. They clearly broke a copyright law, which is in-fact, illegal, even-if hcs gave both Square-Enix and DotEmu written permission to profit from his work.

Amusing, yet, pathetically-sad. This 'updated' version of FF7 was a complete failure, anyway.

That's true. They really ought to have the Ogg Vorbis license up there, at the very least. Looks like they've got ffmpeg in there, as well as the mpg123 pulled in by vgmstream.

Square-Enix can actually get into legal trouble, because of this... if anyone actually wanted to take it that far.

Quite specifically, without hand-written consent, both DotEmu and Square-Enix broke US and international copyright law, when they decided to distribute copies of Final Fantasy 7 without credential to you and/or everyone who has contributed to vgmstream, a documentation of vgmstream and a copy of the ISC License. In addition, they failed to provide the same information for those who developed the miscellaneous dynamic-link libraries. To make matters worse, for them, they profit from your work - the executable would likely crash without vgmstream and/or music would fail playback. It's unlikely that anyone would pay for a copy of FF7 PC, if music wasn't included.

Furthermore, anyone who has contributed to the development of vgmstream is rightfully entitled to seek legal action, even if you don't wish to be credited, in particular, hcs. I doubt anyone would want to take it that far, but copyright infringement is in-place, here, and there is solid proof.

At-the-very-least, give Square-Enix an email, informing them of any wrongdoing. I'm sure the issue will be addressed in a future 'patch'.
