perhaps this can be a good thing if they have no plans to make a remake. should give us less problems..

Correct me if I'm wrong, but weren't you having trouble with sound on Linux? Did you get around these problems?

yes but only with ff7 music.. midi works now but didn't at first. my ff7music issues are not related to wine but a VC++ issue. it used to work perfectly, and  idk what i did to break it, since issues with ff7music are common (reguardless of os). i have stoped attempting to fix it and started to work on replacing it w/ a better opensource and cross-platform version (very slowly progressing, cause i have no time to work on it...)

i am not exactly sure how wine works on vista/win7 cause i don't have a machine with vista / win 7 on it .. 

info on ff7 and tools on wine..

just so everyone knows... if you have windows 7 or vista and issues w/ FF7 try using wine
to play the games , it works great for me on linux .. and there is wine for windows also.. just something to consider if you have problems running ff7 on vista or win7

i have just finished updating the links for most of the pictures, still need to get photos of most of the items in the game. but progress is being made. if anyone would like to help w/ the pictures. pm me and i will provide the nessessary info on what is needed. also if you want access to the sheet you will have to ask halkun so any new people who would like to help will have to talk to him about access.

i like the idea... of a char class for ff7 would make the game quite new...

Cloud: i would lean toward a palley. knight w/ some White magic later on (after aerith is gone or soon before)
                             Big Guard and white wind are a must for abilitys if you go palley w/ cloud.

Aerith: this is the easiest char.. white mage all the way (some summons might work too.) holy type spells would really tie in to the story good too...

Tifa: monk is perfect but don't forget at higher levels monks can heal themselves, and maybe a cure 1 or 2 w/ all would be good to help healing later in the game (its not much but its something)

Barret: this is a hard call beserker, is a good suggestion. but a generic tank type would suit him well also w/ some mixed abilities.

yuffiee, very easy theif..mug should be her standard attack at higher levels,

cid, is also pretty easy dragoon, its just him.. w/ limits like jump and a spear for a weapon its just to easy...

the rest are hard cause they don't really fit a mold to well.. (ok vincent leans toward some kind of black mage)

vincent, is for sure a type of black mage...idk exactly what kind but some black magic is perfered..(dark knight...?)

caih sith, give him a job as useless as he is, or make is this where he could be useful, i support the blue mage idea, bard is a good choice cause of the megaphone.

Red XII, is prolly one of the harder ones to call (a hairclip is his weapon....) could be the other half of vincent. as in if you lean vincent toward archine mage , then make red XIII black mage , i find him to be the hardest one to place in a "class"

I know that this isn't really a solution so much as a workaround, but: if you have your own copy of FF7 PSX and have the equipment to dump your own PSOne BIOS, you can play the game using ePSXe legally. ePSXe-Linux isn't perfect, but I suspect it will be less problematic than trying to run ff7.exe on WINE.

There are plenty of tutorials for BIOS dumping out there. Contact me if you want further instructions.

first off thanks for the suggestion,i have a psx copy of ff7 and a working psx and ps2 so playing on a real one is not a problem,also my psx emulator works decently using pcsx(i use a real ps2 controller(s) with it.).i mainly want to play on my computer because of the vast improvements that have been made to the pc version by members of this forum and others.ff7 looks so good with aali's driver, T.A's 2d overhall,along with other model mods that it just leaves the psx version even in any emulator scaled w/ any filter to 1680*1050 looking a much poorer quality then the pc, and that not even counting the awesomeness that is the remastered ost that FinalFan Tim did.my problems are not really running ff7 in wine at all,infact it works really good...the only issue that i have is that ff7music keeps crashing after it does a song change. so it just runs the game w/o background music, i suspose i could try getting the normal midi to work or use the psf soundfont files...

The wine version of the FF7Music plugin will only work with one specific version of FF7Music; file version 1.5.1.1, mtime October 16, 2005. Any other version will just crash.

i'm assuming that i do have version 1.5.1.1 since this set up was working 100% no issues, but that is another thing i will check... also i have install the 32 and 64 bit versions of vc++ 2008, but no further developments.

1434
Ok just installed "Ubuntu 9.10 AMD64 Desktop"
thats close enuff to my os,i just use kde instead of gnome... and ati video...

Did you check your CFG had the wine plugin for FF7music and not just the normal FF7music plugin ?
yes this config has been working correctly for quite some time (but i have double checked "music_plugin=ff7music_wine.fgp")
and oddly enuff the sfx work perfectly the whole time.. (the "crash" won't crash ff7 but it will kill bkround music)
did you install both 32 and 64 bit versions of VC++ since the error seems to be VC++ related ?
now that i have not done i have used winetricks to install , vc2005/vc2008 runtime (and sp1 for 2008), but i don't know if it installed the 32-bit or 64-bit version of them...

1435
do either of you guys have FF7music working correctly w/ wine 1.1.36 (64bit) i seam to get errors when it need to change the songs... (first one works correctly, then it goes silent...

the following errors are what i get...


this is w/ a fresh install (after purge) of wine 1.1.36 aali's driver 0.73b , ff7 music 1.5 (mad input and fast-wave out, was working fine)...

1436
my school used all mac's .... we only had a few windows machines..
i think if a school is going to paying for computers. then they should consider using something like edubuntu as a OS.

1437
works just fine on my machine still (wine 1.1.36)

Okay, I dunno why it's working now- I installed everything you told me- and I've written into the terminal:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgradeThen, I restarted my laptop and now I can run the FF7 Config- no errors. But there's still one problem: Whenever I try to run the ff7.exe it loads- and exits. No error message or something like that- any idea?

after you load the ff7config. you have to re add the .reg key to your "regestry" ( i would run regedit first then add from with in the program).

do you get any errors when you run (in a terminal)
wine <ff7.exe's path> ?

i am at work now , so i can't really confirm that your wine dxdialog path is correct. or that ff7 doesn't work w/  wine >= 1.1.35 (i also have 1.1.36 atm, but have not played since the "upgrade"). when i get back to the house i will see what i can dig up for you, in the mean time do you have another program that uses direct sound to test with (winamp works nice in wine.... and can be set to d.sound out.) try to see if the problem is only w/ ff7 or all direct sound apps , if its with all try to reinstall directX.

1442
be sure that you have installed both directX (9 should be more then fine) and also that you have configured wine's shound to your sound device , i have always used "FULL" for sound emulation. i started to make a set up guide for the kubuntu forum but have removed most of the good stuff (since it needs to be corrected).
 
i would suggest that you go grab a copy of winetricks (google it you will find it fast) and use it to install the following items
        corefonts
   directx9
   ffdshow (use defaults and allow for all programs when asked for video and audio)
   vcrun2008 (need for some mods and tools, not the main game)
   mfc42 (unsure of this as a requirement try with out it first install if needed, please comment)

then check w/ dxdialog to be sure that you have working sound there..

please note: i also needed  certa's  32-bit color patch.(this may be no longer nesessery w/ aali's driver)

hope i have been of some help. if you get stuck just me know where your @ in the process and i will see what i can do to help, after all us penguins need to stick together.

Maybe I'll go back to Linux then and create a more universal version of WallMarket and PrC. :D I need to learn to do GUI in Linux anyway.
Qt is good for GUI programing in linux w/ the added bonus of it being cross platform... and GPL.
http://qt.nokia.com

and i would love to be able to use wallmarket i have had no luck w/ it in wine..

1444
you can play ff7 in wine w/ no issues...

you will need aali's driver, and ff7 music if you want decent sound... i have been running ff7 for almost a year on kubuntu. you should be sure that first you have the proper video drivers installed and working. from there is just a matter of installing and patching it all up afterwards..

1445
you have to first run the config and set it up ... then run the FF7open.reg if you have a 64-bit windows run the FF7opengl64.reg file :), if you run the config program for ff7 afterwards you will have to re add the .reg file to your regestry.

i play on my monitor @ 1680*1050 it is a 16:10 aspect.

1447
aali, sounds good, if you don't mind i would like a copy of that code. however the Wine version might be a bit more workable on my machine :), i'll see what i can do. but i can't make any promise that it will work in the end , also i prolly would need some one to cross complie for me since i don't have a windows machine...

1448
Aali has previously said that he could do something about ff7music, not exactly sure if it was a seperate program or tied into his driver somehow. But he is a busy person, I am sure he will get around to it when he feels like it.
i understand that he is very busy, i was wondering if i could get some further info so i could attempt to create a solution. for this issue.

1449
as some of you may know i run this game w/ wine on a linux machine. lately ff7music is once again on the fritz. other wise ff7 works perfectly (thanks again aali for this awesome video driver). i get sound effects. but no backround music. this whole outdated ff7music thing has got to go.. i was thinking since this driver works perfectly w/ wine and there for should allow ff7 to be played on just about any platform w/ wine support. why not create a ff7music plug in for the video driver. now i know there is one that uses ff7music but its not exactly what i am proposing. this plug in would bascily do the work off ff7music thus elimiating it and enabling users to easily set there own custom songs. in the plugin's config

first off is this possilbe w/ your video driver, or does this reside more in the area of the exe. if its not possible does any one know if ff7 supports its own native music driver in a similar way that it supports the gfx driver?
if it is possible, what sort of external calls does the driver make in terms of the soundtrack. and how would i go about creating a plugin for it ?
