« Reply #26 on: 2014-12-29 22:49:54 »
Hi... first of all i'd like to thank you for posting this list and the guys who made the mods, this is one of my all time fav. games and i decided to play it again. I'm playing the Steam version and using almost all the texture mods on the list... except for the first one. Well, my game sometimes crashes and the mods sometimes doesn't work... it's very strange couse the work fine, but sometimes they just stop working... I'm using Windows 8. My computer: mobo asus sabertooth z87, intel I7 4770k, 16gb ddr3 ram and asus geforce gtx 780 grafic card. May someone help me please??

Did you disable any STEAM overlays for this game? Like achievements and such. I wouldn't trust windows 8 though. If someone else has any solution about this please feel free to hope in on this discussion! :)

Thanks for replying... how do i do this? Sorry my ignorance (rsrsrs) but I started to use Steam shortly... and another question: all this mods work well together? Maybe that's the problem... again thank you for getting back to me :D

hahahah thanks for the google thing :D that was funny...
But it didn't work, sadly :/
So it must be the SweetFX and Tonberry compatibility, i'm reinstaling the game so i can do it again, this time i won't install SweetFX...
let's see if it works :D

You can't run SweetFX and Tonberry together because both would be trying to communicate with directX.

Try to use Gedosato. It can inject SweetFX without the need of a deirectx file. It also should be possible for it to unlock the internal 720p cap the game has.

Not only that, but SweetFX shouldn't be needed with all of the new Tonberry mods.  After Eden/SeeDReborn/Tripod/HorizonPack/ShunsqCharacterReplacement, you should even be able to turn off linear filtering and get the best effect.

I like this option -- even if only for unlocking resolutions.  I need to test this.

Actually... I read into it, and it looks legit.  You should totally be able to do this to FF8 on Steam since it uses DirectX9.  It would enable the use of all sorts of goodies while still being able to use Tonberry.  Hell, you may even be able to put Tonberry through it too from what I see.  I however, would have no idea how to do it... lol.

Gedosato is what is used to run FFXIII in 1080p / 4k / whatever resolution you want. It works pretty good.

I'm just amazed of how firefox is still losing frames!!! Opened with chrome and worked right!

Is this tool working for the XIII-2 as well?

GeDoSaTo IS working with Steam FFVIII and Tonberry. Here are a couple pics with the postprocessing (Asmodeans) enabled.

How are you configuring GeDoSaTo?
