About this project

This project is intended to be a technical reference of how the Final Fantasy VII game’s internal gears works. It is meant to be paired with the gameplay reference to provide a complete overview of the game to all tech-oriented or curious players.

What about Qhimm’s wiki?


Do NOT consider this content more up to date than Qhimm’s Wiki, forums, the Q-Gears PDF or information that could be found in people’s source code.

  • Once again, I played Final Fantasy VII.

  • Once again, I felt the need to understand how it works in the inside. You know why: for science!

  • Once again, I remembered works of the folks at Qhimm’s forums or others.

  • Once again, I hopped on the Qhimm’s Wiki 1 to get some information.

  • Once again, I was… disappointed.

Not about the content nor it’s quality ! Don’t get me wrong. It is a matter of taste I suppose, but I don’t like reading this technical documentation in a Wiki. This is just an attempt to clear things up. For me at least, and maybe for others.

I do not want to shadow anyone’s work but rather build on the giant’s shoulders. I will try to reference my sources as much as I can.

If you feel that your work is not correctly or insufficiently referenced, please open a pull request on this project. You can add links to your work or sources: it would be great for others to build upon your informations! Obviously, I’ll merge your PR as soon as I can.

Thanks again to all of you for sharing your valuable knowledge with everyone. And thanks to Squaresoft / Square-Enix for having made such a great game.

Hey, that is a nice idea! I want to contribute!

Please do! Open a pull request on this repository and, once reviewed with my limited knowledge, it will be added!


This is a backup wiki. The original wiki went down at the end of 2017 and some content was lost. (Source)
