Hack updated to v2.9.7:

- reverted Cloud's custom pose used in Omnislash introduced in v2.9.3 because it conflicts with the extended palette hack, which effected a couple characters, and the Varia Suit. If you have save data already on version 2.9.3-2.9.6, you can press a button combo while in the menu to refresh the sprites: hold down the L and R buttons, and press SELECT. You should hear a chime sound and this will clear the cache. Or you can use the optional patch that removes the suit gfx change.
- the above fix also corrected an oversight with another character having a strange pose when they used Omnislash.
- fixed an ancient bug where Golbez would seemingly unlearn his Fireball and/or Spark spells.
- fixed a bug with a formation in Kefka's Tower that would cause the game to freeze if enough time passed.
- fixed a bug with a random letter being placed before the 'Can't equip!' text in the esper menu, when trying to equip a non-equippable esper.
- fixed a mistake of a bridge piece missing once the map refreshed in the cave to the Sealed Gate.
- fixed a vanilla bug with Morph and the Gem Box, where the character would take an extra step forward. (credit to CDude)
- updated Status Icon Overflow patch by SilentEnigma to v1.2 which fixes a visual bug in the menu.
- applied 'Morph Mayhem' patch by Leet Sketcher, which fixes some potential exploits with Quick and the Morph gauge that can cause the infamous permanent-morph bug. (thanks to Madsiur for getting it to work for RotDS)
- got the 'Mastered Esper' star icons yellow-colored instead of white, with a better star icon. (credit to Ryo_Hazuki and gens)
- changed a couple item icons.
- changed the 'weapon addition magic' for almost all of the weapons that can proc spells, from 1/4th to 1/8th chance of proccing, except for rods (besides the Serpent Rod) which are still 1/4th.
- renamed the monster spell 'Freeze' to 'Frozen Tomb', so it no longer shares a name with the black magic spell.
- increased learning rate of Sylph's Raise from 2% to 3%, and Purify from 4% to 5%.
- increased learning rate of Odin's Holy and Bahamut's Flare from 1% to 2%
- nerfed some of Reaper's 'multiply physical damage by x amount' Souls.
- replaced Doll Astral's Chrono Helm with Vitality Cap.
- changed a couple bets-rewards in the Coliseum.
- swapped a couple treasures.
- gave the monster-in-a-box chests in the WoR art house basement the possibility of being two different formations/battles, instead of one.
- bettered the map fade-in transition when you jump into the Heartless cave, so it doesn't look all janky.
- removed the party receiving a Holy Lance after beating Alduin, and instead made it the drop.
- buffed soul eater boss script by replacing two spells.
- buffed some other late-game bosses.
- slightly nerfed the damage of some late-game weapons.
- moved Doomkaiser down in his formation mould.
- added some code that allows the ability to summon an esper when X Magic is active. (credit to Feanor)
- added optional patch: 'hold_button_to_advance_dialog' patch, which makes it so that holding the 'confirm' button, normally the 'A' button, will advance dialog text, instead of needing to press it. (credit to Feanor)

Hey Just wanted to let you know your wee hack is not only being still played but has the power to move people.

When I played FF7 in um...2004 or so I was so devastated by Aerith I kept her memory card for years. It's possibly still out there somewhere. I finished the game but I never overwrote that one save.

I changed Cloud's name to Daiken( Dai means Big and Ken means sword) because I dunno I've always changed his name likely cause in FF7 he's yer man.

I kept Tifa as Tifa and absolutely love everything about their story and how it's worked into Rise. I got really emotional again avout it and I feel their story is my favourite in this delightful wee game. Tifa is also the perfect balance of a slots character. I use it a lot but she's such a powerhouse I can use her natural magic or her claws if I don wish to deal with reels.

Ir's made me want to replay FF7 again. I initially stopped playin version 1.4(?) because I had trouble with the blitz. It was actually my emulator but I wanted to thank you for making a really big effort to redo every blitz and make them easier.

I could never use Sabin much when I played as a teen because of that. 

I really appreciate all the work everyone put into this.. I think it's wonderful. I've also laughed out loud a couple of times. I don't expect it which makes the comic relief all the better.

As for Ronan, The combat upgrades you did with his brother meant that by the opera I have a team that, yes, yer script is different but I'm still travelling with a party I normally left behind before.

The only other time I I travelled with the two 'siblings' is a person online made a recast of ff6 using the same sprites and he used Terra for Edward and Relm for Sabin. a tiny bodybuilder is a lot of fun too! 

But so is a Ronan!

Anyways, Just wanted to let you know 2.97 is Fantastic.

I'm about to sneak into the Magitech Facility. 

Oh I LOVED that Joffrey and Kal DraCo were in the Opera. Nice touch with the Targaryens dancing too.

- fixed an incorrect octave in song: SoM A Curious Happening.
- fixed a couple missing pixels on the Royal Serin optional patch.
- corrected a solo monster formation from doing pincer attacks.
- added 'skill select menu' optional patch that changes both Limit Break (Sword Tech) and Combo (Blitz) to instead be selected from a menu, like Dance. (thanks to Feanor, original patch by LightPhoenix)
- replaced two songs on 'soundtrack a', one being the WoR airship theme, the other a better version of the load screen menu song.
- added two more changed songs for 'soundtrack b'.
