Windows 7: Final Fantasy VII ??

07 Jun 2009   #21

Windows 7 Home Premium x64

I sent you a PM giving you my thanks. However, I would like to leave a message for the rest of the people who see this (this was part of the PM to Orbital Shark).

Just one little tip about the patches. Get them at this website:

Under the Downloads section, they give you a whole list of patches and stuff. They also say do not use the 1.4 patch, as it is a virus. Just stick with 1.02. The Chocobo patch and the minigames patcher is in there as well, which will stop your computer from crashing at the Chocobo races and also make the other minigames like the bike race and snowboarding much slower, allowing you to control Cloud more easily. With modern video cards, the minigames are sped up beyond belief. This will stabilize them. Read the readme of that patcher for instructions though, as you have to type in certain things.
EDIT: Oh yes, make sure to put this in the Windows 7 Game Compatibility List (!

GRaphics problem

Hi Peeps,

Manage to get my FFVII up and running, the starting sequence with Aerith is fine, the train is fine, once the Video sequence ends, the whole background changes to brown meshes, like a huge brown mesh wire is blocking u. The battle scenes and menus and characters look fine, just the background, anyone has the same problem? solutions anyone?

I am using NVidia 8500GT

Thanks lots!

Ubuntu 10.04 64bit

Basicly what you have to do is use the official 1.02 patch, then the OpenGL patch, then change the permisions on the ff7 folder to allow your user full access to it. DO NOT use compatibility mode with this method as it causes weird bugs. The codecs are f'd up too don't install those either.

got it working 100% on win7 x64, more detailed instructions here on my site...
