 Briefly:

 TrueMotion codec - codec used to play ingame cutscenes (follow recommendation.txt to solve your problems with movies)
 Upside-down FMV cutscenes patch - may solve problem with movies playing upside-down (see warning!)
 Laptop Keypad patch - patches the game to be playable without numpad (good for laptops)
 1. enables to pass 8-bit palette textures test in config thus allowing to choose Direct3D hardware rendering of video
 2. enables 1280x960 ingame resolution;possibility of antialiasing without graphical issues;integrated Jedwin's Chocobo racing patch which solves crashing on 2k/XP systems
 3. - MiniGamesPatch - This program will enable a frame limiter for the Bike, Snowboarding and Rollercoaster Minigames and for battleswirl effect. It allows minigames to run at normal, manageable speeds on mid-to-high-end systems.
     It ALSO helps to solve crashing issues that some people may experience with the snowboarding game.
     This ALSO has integrated BattleSwirlFix which fixes an issue with FF7 crashing randomly when entering battles (mostly after Alt+Tabbing out of game and then returning)
   - TransparentDialogBoxesPatch - Will make the big blue dialog boxes transparent.
   - NoDialogBoxesPatch - Will make the dialog boxes vanish and only text appear (will overwrite the TransparentDialogBoxesPatch).
   - 9999LimitBreakingPatch - Removes the 9999 limit for HP/MP/Damage in your FF7 allowing to go above this number. See screenshot and 9999LimitBreaking.txt.
   - GyptInstant - Allows you to skip FMVs when playing FF7 by pressing a hotkey. Very useful when experiencing freezes and crashes during FMV sequences. See GyptInstant.txt.
   - LuckyTifa - Tifa will always get "Yeah!" in her limit break. (cheat)
   - LuckyCaitSith - Allows you to manipulate CaitSith's The Slots Limit Break. (cheat)
 4. The better-looking Cloud model from the final battle replaces your normal battle Cloud. see samples
 5. a) This adds normal hands to ingame characters. No more lego blocks. ))
     b) This awesome mod completely replaces most of all childish lego characters for normal ones like in battlefields or in FF8
 6. edits the spell names, giving them these: Fire - Fire, Fira, Firaga (originally Fire1, Fire2, Fire3), Ice - Blizzard, Blizzara, Blizzaga (originally Ice1, Ice2, Ice3) etc.
 7. replaces the menu character icons with Advent Children Style (taken from the movie)
 8.1 allows you to put any music in your game replacing the midi music. In other words you can use Playstation files to play with original PS music or ANY MP3 you wish!!! Nice if you own OST of FF7 or FF7 Reunion tracks or FF7 Advent Children.
 8.2 tries to fix music delays at switching scenes while using ff7music - prevents ff7music to flood its console with undesired debug info thus saving some cpu.

9. This patch makes almost all enemies morphable into items, It also prevents to steal and win the same item at once a makes the stealing rate more realistic and less frustrating. The Mod also introduces some items that were not carried by any enemy before thus trying to rebalance the underrepresentation and uniformity of the number of stealable items.
