Troubleshooting / Re: FF VII unable to exit itself

This occurs in Windows XP when you run FF7.exe in compatibility mode.

I would recommend going for Windows XP if you are playing FF8. I haven't heard of any xp specific issues, although I could be wrong.

It's useful if you encounter the world map bug. For some people it can take up to a minute to load the world map and ff7.exe can consume about 256 MB of memory. Turning on compatibility mode fixes this, however apart from this I'm not sure how else it helps.

I used to get this problem with compatibility mode enabled.

Please state your system specs.

Try playing the game using software rendering.

This should of been posted in the tech support forum.

In windows load up the sound controls / mixer and make sure that the volume is turned up for everything, especially the wavetable softsynth (midi).

Dziugo made an excelent program just for this purpose! Its Gypt/YAMP, and you would have found it if you searched a little.  wink
You use it to skip your movies.

He has tried Gypt/YAMP and it didn't work.


Actually I think it has to do with the old codec  (TrueMotion 20) that is not produced anymore and very difficult to find anywhere(new ones don't work). But I happened to come across a site that someone put up and that person didn't have the codec.exe to install(deleted it) anymore but he kept the installed file one in Window/System32(I think) folder. It's I just copied that into my System32 and I couldn't believe it. It played all the places that crashed on me! The Gaea's Cliff movie, Weapon coming out of crater movie, etc.. The movie wants to crash but it doesn't. If you want this codec email me. I know it works on both of my laptops and desktops with Windows XP Pro & Home. You must backup your original that's in System32(I think) folder before copying the one that I will give you.
Your original will be about 100kb
The one that was given to me is about 300kb.
Try this at your own risk. I've had mine installed for over 2 weeks with no problems with my pc and I'm at the part where you can battle with Ultimate Weapon at Cosmo Canyon. After you see the movie.

Edit* Just defeated him with out crashing, like some members are having crashed on them.

I think anyone can listen to XG midi using the Yamaha Softsynthesizer. If using Windows XP I think you need to obtain a copy of the S-YXG50 software sythesizor as the S-YXG70 which is included on the FFVII dics does not work in XP.

The XG midi is a lot nice than the standard midi in the PC version, but overall I think the PSX music is the best.

I've played the game a couple of times now and think its quite enjoyable. It turns out that I'm not nearly as good at tetra master as I thought I was though...

I don't currently have FF7 installed so I can't try it out. Has anyone else had some luck with this tweak?

I already had a downloaded PC version that I have played before on my Windows XP

I know I can always download a psx version with emulator

I believe there is no solution for this problem. It's related to the GeForce 6 series graphics cards.

See;prev_next=prev#new for more details.

Troubleshooting / Re: Movies running off your hard drive
« on: 2007-07-26 18:41:23 »
Why don't you do a very very simple search of the forums, maybe with the search terms 'hard drive' and 'movies'. Or were you too lazy?

Does the sound coutting out during FMVs problem only occur when ff7music is running?

sephiroth inside clouds mind at the end of FFVII. that fight was SO anti climactic

I never realised this fight was in Cloud's mind. I thought he was drawn back into the lifestream...

In Windows XP you are logged on as the administrator right?

Have you tried installing from the CDs instead?

I definately remember Aeris' mother saying those lines in her house after Aeris is captured

Have you checked in Windows if you have the appropriate permission to access the ff7.exe? Try right clicking on the executable and then going to properties and navigate to the security tab.

I have a similar problem in that the midi continues to play. Is there anyway to mute the midi in windows vista?

The ff7.exe process still keeps running for some people, even after closing the application. It occurred whenever I ran the game using Windows 98 compatibility mode. Oddly enough, when I doubled my memory from 512 to 1GB, I no longer needed to enable compatibility mode and the process problem ceased.

Have you tried right clicking on the setup.exe and then selecting properties. If you select the compatibility tab and change it to windows 98 it might help.

1) yeah that used to happen to me sometimes, so... just don't let the character die.
2) I've never had a problem targeting, maybe its something you just get used to.
3) Movement may feel a little weird at first but you'll quickly get used to it. I'm sure as far as movement is concened the ps1 & pc versions are the same.

Troubleshooting / Re: So, uh, Vista?
« on: 2007-04-14 16:18:40 »
I've got it working nicely on Vista (all be it a little quick!):

> Installed the game
> Installed the 1.02 patch
> Installed the upside down movie patch (forced administrator in win 98 compatibility mode)
> Truemotion disabled in FFDshow

- Mark

These steps worked fine for me in Vista. I didn't need to use FFDshow either.
