Before Crisis tells the story of the Investigation Sector of The General Affairs Department, also simply known as Turks, a organization working for the Shinra Electric Power Company, a famous name in the world of Final Fantasy 7.

Before Crisis starts seven years before the events of FF7, and you get to see the daily life of the turks, making missions for the company, fighting against the first group of mercenaries known as AVALANCHE, who are trying to protect the planet from ShinRA, who is little by little destroying it, taking the mako energy from the earth (That in this case, is the planet Gaia).

You basically play as the villain, seeing their perspectives of what they do, even though it may look wrong for everyone else.

Famous characters of the FF7 universe are present, as Reno, Rude, and Tseng. But you play as Shotgun, a rookie starting your first day working for the turks, and you see her journey in those seven years, meeting all the new turks, looking for a reason to keep fighting, and witnessing events that will lead to the beginning of FF7.

*This is a remake of the game Before Crisis released only in Japan.

Made an account just to ask if this includes all the chapters? Your previous comments says otherwise, however those were years ago.


All the chapters from the main story + 2 extra chapters.
I believe the only thing missing is Legend's chapter and post game content, i.e. looking for Jade weapon.

Hi! i recently finishd playing crisis core and after finishing it,i started searching something on before crisis,i found this i downloaded it and i started playing. And its a really good work but when i reach chapter 6

SPOILER
the chapter when rude is dating an avalanche spy,when shotgun arrives at the hole following chelsea,the game crash with the error "event doesn't exist". I tried again,opening the game with the latest save and this time the game crash even before that scene,it crash when reno start following chelsea with he same error. What do i have to do? i really want to continue this game but with this error i can't.
You're probably skipping dialogue too fast. The way i made cutscenes is a little janky. Try going a little slow and see if that works.


alright thank you!i will try

Hey richterw - thanks so much for all the hard work you and your colleagues have put into bringing the game to us. I remember when it first came out being insanely jealous of those who could play it on the old DoCoMo phones - to the point I even tried actually trying to get one but as a poor student wasn't able to!

I'll be streaming this version you've made every Weds eve (UK time) on Twitch, so if you're ever interested in seeing someone do a blind playthrough, it would be great to say thanks to you directly.

I'm making some changes.
A team did a spanish translation, I asked about do the betatesting work but as I'm an old user of Rpg maker, I started to make some changes.
Fix bugs, use FF7 Sfx, new graphics, etc
I expect to find a way to make this version multi language if they make Easyrpg Lcftrans.

Hey I've been playing this and I absolutely adore it. I'm incredibly thankful that you took the time to do this for the fans. You did an amazing job.

But I'm experiencing an error that's preventing me from continuing the game.. The section where
Shotgun follows Rude's "girlfriend" underground
keeps crashing on me, giving the same error message. It says "Event script referenced an event that does not exist."

Do you know what I can do to fix this? I genuinely love this and really want to keep playing! Thank you xx


I'm glad you're enjoying it. I assume you're probably skipping the text message too fast. It's a known issue. In case going slower doesn't solve it and the crash keeps happening, i think the best solution would be to alternate your save between pc and easyrpg on android. Like, save before the crash, play the game on another platform to see if it happens. If it works beyond the point that it crashes, then save and transfer the save file back to his original folder. Sorry for this convoluted solution, is all i can think right now.

Hi!!!

One friend translate this rpg maker game to spanish here.

=)


That's pretty cool :)
Hi!!!

Good story it actually explains a lot of things that were not really explained in Crisis Core such as why Cisnei is present but doesn't appear within the original game. Few typos that are somewhat annoying main one that annoyed me was Zack being spelt as Zach half the time.

However gameplay needs a lot of work. You could very easily add in gear that players can use to customise and have certain abilities that you use for certain enemies. I spent the whole game spamming the ice spell you find in Junon. Enemies are very repetitive as well as being very week.
A lot of the time enemies are hitting for 0 damage.
There also appears to be a lack of bosses. Even when you fight Zack you don't even have to do much.

Graphically out of combat its passable, some dungeons are dull but doesn't look as bad as say some RTP games. However in battle it just looks horrible and blurred you cant tell what most the enemies are.
Considering its a final fantasy game and final fantasy uses the same monsters you could probably find sprites for the enemies that fits with the world but doesn't look out of place.
You also definatly need different enemies. In the shinra building the shinra soldiers you fight have the same sprite as the AVALANCH troopers you fight.
There's people making translations,
if you add the Legend Epidode,
as stand alone /dlc game is better.

Actually I want to edit the game
but maybe I'll do a language
selector menu
and all the script, calling
to common events.
Variable language
0-English
1-Spanish
X-Other unused

Obviously the System text can't
use more languages.

Hey guys, how do i buy items or contact shinra shop??

I can buy them once on chapter 10 but i don’t know how to assess.

If it is the last updated build, you can use the cellphone at anytime from the items menu, to buy stuff from the shop.

I downloaded it on my phone and I refused to open. I might be just an idiot but how do I get it to work?

You need to have easyrpg installed on android. After that, you download and extract the files, then you move the main folder to the "easyrpg>games" folder in your phone. That's it.

Hey, I'm having an issue with the RAR. It's telling me the archive is damaged. Am I the only one, or are other folks getting this issue too?


The rar files are valid but you may be trying to open them using an older version of Winrar which won't work - try to use 7zip to extract or a newer version of Winrar.
