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

i'm assuming that i do have version 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.

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...

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)...

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.

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> ?

OS -> kubuntu 9.10
Browser -> firefox or konquerer
Video player -> VLC
Audio player -> amarok
Image editing -> GIMP
Photo editing -> GIMP
Image viewing -> Gwenview
Torrent client -> transmission-daemon
Video Editor -> Avi-demux
Office tools -> open office
Anti-virus? -> sterilize my keyboard/mouse.

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.

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
   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.

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

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..

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.

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...

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.

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 ?

I ask the people that know me or had saw me working on this project to please express it, because i have been left behind due the number of my posts, and i think that the effort and hours that i dedicate it to this project are more valuable than a bunch of statistics numbers in my profile.

Cordially, Vegeta_Ss4

yea vegeta is good, if it was not for him i would only have half of battle.lgp done :), i would also like access.

will this project still be availble with out a windows based installer? as in i can still hand patch the needed files, i am afraid that depending on how you create this installer wine wont run it.

been away a little while (new job/very busy). i am back although only slowly working on the remaining pictures for battle.lgp now.. (check the sheet), might be a few more weeks before i clear enuff of the what i have to get done to get back to serious work on this project. that being said,

if someone would like to do some of the pics(look at all the red links), please pm me so they we don't dup work (pics should be saved as .png named according to file there of), i will still host the pictures just pm me when done and i will get them from you. this help would be a HUGE help towards finishing battle.lgp, just about all that remains in that part of the sheet.

@NFITC1, the sheet is still up and link on first page works just  fine.
@Halkun, i second sticky.
@all contrubutiors, thank you all for your work on the sheet, no one person could do this alone, it would take forever.

thats great.. thanks for the link
