I did put the dll files in the main directory. I put the ficedula.dll in and it asked for ff7music.dll, which does not come with the latest version. It didnt do anything with the console.dll. So I put in an older ff7music.dll, and the game crashed before loading.

what was the error message

Mesden, as you seem to know what you're talking about, is there any chance I could get you to take a look at my problem? FF7music just doesn't want to work for me, and I've followed the instructions here to a tee (several times, actually). The thread is here: http://forums.qhimm.com/index.php?topic=7565.0, and it contains my .ini file to look at, as well as a more detailed description. Thanks so much!


Check where your Ficeconsole.dll File is located, check where your Ficedula.dll File is located, make sure you have the right options checked, make sure FF7Music.ini is in the proper folder, you may need to redownload it.. If that doesn't work, try a fresh reinstall of FF7.

added: Thanks for leaving a guide it helped!  :mrgreen:


but im not sure what i can do with this error

I believed it started working when i lowered the volume on the game, But i still get an error saying
"error setting direct sound cooperative level; Please shutdown other programs using your soundcard. Error code: 80070057"

Reinstall Winamp and update your old sound card drivers. You might also have programs running in the background which are using your sound card.

   Step Nine: Setting up the MP3s to work with Final Fantasy VII

   Click on the Files tab to access a list of your current PSFs. The "FF7 Music" Sticky on the Qhimm Forums will translate these PSFs into
   their proper Song Name. Double-click a PSF in the Files tab, then Browse to the MP3 you want to use instead. Use the Blue Laguna
   Source Link to Stream the MP3s because they will help you in recognizing these PSFs.

This is where you lost me. I don't have any PSFs?

I went ahead and tried to run it anyway, and it says "The application has failed to start because ficedula.dll was not found."

I put a ficedula.dll file in there and I get a runtime error.  :? :? :? :-o :-o :-( :-( :-( :-( plz kill me  :x :x :x :x :x

Some of the FF7Music Directories come with a PSF Folder. If you don't have a PSF Folder, just replace the word PSF with MP3.

Try placing the Ficedula.dll and Ficeconsole.dll into your main FF7 Directory, not in the FF7Music Folder.

Guys I'm having a problem...

When I try to load this, the screen turns black for a moment, then kicks me back to the Desktop. No Error Messages or anything... What's going on?

Since I've yet to come across a thread which thoroughly details the installation process of FF7Music, I've written out a Tutorial on the Qhimm Message Boards to troubleshoot the application.


   Step One: Download Patch 1.02
   Source: http://www.ff7-universe.com/

   Click on Downloads in the Navigation Menu, then 1.02 Patch. Click on the "Readme" Link for the Instructions on applying the Patch.


   Step Two: Run Final Fantasy VII

   Double-click on FF7.exe to make sure the Game is working as intended. If you have problems running the Game, check the Forums
   via the Search Tool, as your problem has likely been addressed.

   Step Three: Create a Ficedula Folder

   Goto the directory where you installed Final Fantasy VII, presumably at C:\Program Files\Final Fantasy VII, or
   C:\Program Files\Square Soft Inc.\Final Fantasy VII. Create a Folder labeled Ficedula.


   Step Four: Download FF7Music (Part 1)
   Source: http://aaron-kelley.net/hosting/ficedula/

   FF7Music requires the .ini Configuration File to work properly. Since it's a pain in the butt to locate, and hasn't been included in the
   1.51 Release, Download FF7Music 1.10 via the Source Link, then Extract the Contents into the Ficedula Folder of your Final
   Fantasy VII Directory.


   Step Four: Download FF7Music (Part 2)
   Source: http://forums.qhimm.com/index.php?topic=5387.0

   Download the latest version of FF7Music via the Source Link indicated above. You WILL be replacing the FF7Music.exe File
   indicated in Step Four (Part 1).


   Step Five: Transfer the Files

   Move FF7Music.dll into your Main Final Fantasy VII Folder.


   Step Six: Download In_Mp3.dll / Out_Ds.dll
   Source: http://www.dlldump.com/download-dll-files_new.php/dllfiles/I/in_mp3.dll/-/download.html -- (In_Mp3.dll)
   Source: http://www.dlldump.com/download-dll-files.php/dllfiles/O/out_ds.dll/download.html -- (Out_Ds.dll)

   Using Winamp's DLLs likely won't work. Use these Source Links to Download the DLLs, then place them into your Final Fantasy VII
   Folder (C:\Program Files\Final Fantasy VII\). Don't place them into the Ficedula/FF7Music Folder.


   Step Seven: Configuring FF7Music

   Open up FF7Music.exe, Click on the Setup Tab. Click on the ". . ." Button and direct the Input Plugin to In_Mp3.dll, then direct the Output
   Plugin to Out_Ds.dll.


   Step Eight: Gather your MP3s

   Put your MP3s into a Folder, then place that Folder into your Ficedula / FF7Music Folder.


   Step Nine: Setting up the MP3s to work with Final Fantasy VII
   Source: http://bluelaguna.net/music/ff7/mp3s.php

   Click on the Files tab to access a list of your current PSFs. The "FF7 Music" Sticky on the Qhimm Forums will translate these PSFs into
   their proper Song Name. Double-click a PSF in the Files tab, then Browse to the MP3 you want to use instead. Use the Blue Laguna
   Source Link to Stream the MP3s because they will help you in recognizing these PSFs.

   Next, Click on Playback Options:

   - Check Loop Custom Files.

   - Set Resuming to Selective.

   - Change MIDI Device to Microsoft GS Wavetable Synth.

   - Check Mute Midi on Custom Playback.

   - Check Emulate Ramps.

   - Check Delay Stops.

   - Check Obey "Stop".


   Step Ten: Muting the MIDI

   Open up the Configuration Utility, Click on the MIDI tab, then uncheck Logarithmic Volume Control. Move the Volume Text to Min., uncheck
   Logarithmic Volume Control, then press Okay. Finally, load Final Fantasy VII and access the Menu Screen, then disable the Volume in the
   Configuration Settings.

Troubleshooting / Re: FF8 Crashes on an FMV
« on: 2007-11-08 09:11:50 »
Also:
Here's a Save File. If anyone can jump on FF8, I'm in the Dormotory. Just leave the Dorm, run down the Hall, get past the Scene with Zell, Squall, and Seifer, then go back to the Dorm and Save.

If anyone can send me the Save File after that, then it should temporarily fix my problem :)

Troubleshooting / FF8 Crashes on an FMV
« on: 2007-11-08 09:03:49 »
Right after the Scene where Zell and Squall...erm... Leon meet for the first time, there's an FMV or something introducing Seifer.

Well right at that moment, my game crashes. I've tried updating my Video Card, I've tried Patching the Game, I've tried running in compatibility mode with everything disabled, I tried disabling all of the video settings in the configuration panel to improve the performance... Nothing seems to work. Any ideas?

I've been fiddling with a program that makes terrain (Such as Water, Mountains, etc.)

Just wondering, if I render the water, how do you implement that into FF7?

Scale them down and tone up their sharpness. Are you saying it would look pixelated?

I'm just throwing a suggestion out there.. Being that someone should model the characters to look like that of either FF7: Dirge of Cerberus, or if you're really skilled.. FF7: AC. Anyone know how to take the character models off of DoC and onto FF7? :P

Also got a couple other mods on there from YAMP. Working good so far, no crashes yet, but if one happens to come, I'll let you know.

Not sure how to edit so I'll just make a new post.

I extracted the BattleSwirl Files into a folder called Patches, and the install.bat / skerb._ex files into the main FF7 directory. I ran install.bat and it shows that the file was patched. I read that the BattleSwirl patch gets rid of the swirl completely, but I could be wrong. It still swirls, but it hasn't crashed, regardless of how many times I've alt-tabbed :)

Was it supposed to get rid of the swirl or just fix it from crashing?

okay so I don't extract the battle swirl fix into my FF7 directory then? I'll give it a try and make an edit.

I read the Battle Swirl Fix Post at first, it said I needed to extract all the files into my FF7 directory. That's the Battle Swirl Fix Files and the YAMP Files. When they were in my FF7 Director, I ran the Install.bat, didn't work. I then tried dragging the Battle Swirl Fix's .txt file over the Install.bat, didn't work. I then tried to drag the .srb file over the Install.bat, didn't work. Those three times I did it, I played with it a bit, alt-tabbed once or twice and the game crashed just as it was entering into battle.

If those three things that I did were not what I was supposed to do, then I'm not making any sense of the Battle Swirl Fix instructions. =/

Yeah I read the Battle Swirl Fix, it says I have to grab a hex editor and do some changes. I grabbed a Hex-Editor, then read the walkthrough and it was like trying to understand Latin. They were speaking complete gibberish.

At any point in the game, if I Alt-Tab out of the game, then tab back in, the moment I enter a battle, when it swirles, the game crashes.
Mods I got... The High-Res Patch and the Character Model Upgrade. Yes, I'm also using 1.02, so why is it crashing? What can I do to fix it?

CRC Check error, what am I doing wrong?
