The project was started in 2010
And I believe it's been cancelled.
It never got to 1.0, and that's for Final Fantasy VII, which even here has a much larger modding community and base.
For instance, there have been multiple mod loaders and installers for FFVII, and pretty much nothing for FFVIII.
Check out Tonberry if you have the Steam version though. It doesn't affect framerate positively, but it looks real nice.
