14. How do I set options?
- Please read the help file that came with the installer. Also note that the Steam Launcher and Steam settings are completely bypassed by The Reunion .

15. Why is The Reunion closed source?
-In the time The Reunion was open source, not one single person ever used the code to create something new. All that ever came of it were copies, clones, and ports of The Reunion content for other projects without permission or credit - and many of the features created here have been taken wholesale. We do not consider this to be in the spirit of open source. Far from open source being a benefit to the Final Fantasy VII modding community, it became a hindrance and open source of division. The graphical side (aali.dll) is open source, however.

16. Does The Reunion work with 7th Heaven?
- No. The Reunion has its own method of modding the game and is itself a completely different framework and mod manager.

17. I want X [such as W-Item glitch] to be reinstated - One of the core aims of The Reunion is to fix all known glitches and bugs and restore the game to how the original team intended the release to be. If you wish to cheat, please use Ochu or any number of trainers or save editors.

18. Can you add X?
- Due to workload and other commitments, requests cannot be taken.

19. Is there a changelog?
- See The Reunion Database. That is always the main changelog.

20. Since I downloaded Reunion, my controls on the xbox one controller are messed up. For example, I enter the menu with A and can't run.
- Make sure that Steam input is disabled if there's an option to do that, then set up your controller in FF7's main Config menu (in the actual game).
