FF8 Steam Version with serious issues: the driver is not being loaded or is being ignored.
here my remarks:
In short, what happened on the last stream confirms three things:
1. on Steam Version, you can modify the Audio using Roses and Wine, but you cannot add/modify or extract textures. the process is too complicated and i gave up after 3 hours of work and research. EAX library is the main problem, plus is not accepting aali's OpenGL driver.
2. The 2000 version, you can add custom textures and HR fonts, but you cannot use Roses and Wine. You can use aali's OpenGL Driver to add your graphic customizations.
3. Megachocobo's High Resolution Textures does not match the textures embeded in the game. please check this file with the megachocobo's textures vs SE textures, way too different : http://www.mediafire.com/download/8akdzr93hjnhv59/texture%20comparison.rar
So we are in a checkmate here. we need a developer that may go into what is not allowing the OpenGL driver to be loaded by the steam game, so all the mods can be added without problems.
