Final Fantasy VIII PC Mods.
« on: 2013-03-18 03:53:58 »
Hello! I am freshly new to this forum and noticed that most of the mods/tutorials on this website have to do with Final Fantasy VII (7). It's actually quite understandable considering the game is considerably more popular than the other FF title that's available on the PC. I have little but some knowledge of adding mods to PC games in general, and I was wondering if there were some kind of tightly gathered information about the mods for Final Fantasy VIII, or FF8?

Is it possible for someone to maybe help me get started on applying these mods? Particularly, just mods that maybe...make the game easily compatible with Windows Vista/7, and the mod that supposedly upscales the character models, textures, etc. I really do not mean to come off as annoying or unintelligent or anything like that :(. I just happened to have stumbled upon this website and it seems like a really cool community here and figured I would ask for some legitimate help. Any help at all is much appreciated, guys. Seriously! :D

Also, is there a reason I cannot send personal messages?

So basically, it seems to me like I could probably folllow the directions on how to apply mods for Final Fantasy VII, since those are so abundant, and know that VIII mods can be applied to same way!

There aren't many FF8 mods. Really only SEED, Roses and Wine, and some avatar packs.

I "pop up" in a lot of places. Starting to feel like a robot with all my generic, one sentence statements. Buuut, it's the only time I have before work and the small breaks I have between my planning period and lunch.

After obtaining mods, how does one apply them? To the directories of the actual game itself?

I know... I know... Lightning! :P

@PanzerDude92 After installing the non-Geforce patch and Aali's driver you need to follow instructions written in the read me file of each mod you want to install. Be careful with the saveanywhere mod because it replaced my "ability" option with the "save".

I don't believe there are any psx FF8 mods here.
