7thHeaven / Re: Menus and Text Broken
« on: 2019-02-03 11:24:13 »
If you're using 7th Heaven, make sure you are running the correct .exe

For Menu Overhaul - ff7_mo.exe

For Menu Overhaul and ReTranslation - ff7_bc.exe

None of the above - ff7.exe

For anyone using a Playstation controller with a Playstation to USB adapter can use this file to match the buttons. I tested it with mine and it seems to work great

Hope you don't mind me sharing this, Shunsq.  :)

It's the frame limiter and the code itself. It's not a good port.

I can't disagree now as nothing is fixing it outside of lower resolution or original graphic mode

I doubt it...  FF8 should not need an i7 to run properly.  At the root is poor coding.

Agreed. I'm just saying what FatedCourage said to me which is a game problem and it runs fine for him on an i7

It turns out it is all down to CPU. The faster the CPU, the less lag those effects have.

However, it is still a game issue. It is countered by a very powerful PC

Which is a shame. The description of the linked video below by FatedCourage claims to have fixed the lag issue and the video shows no slowdown

An older video of his does show slowdown which led me to believe it was fixable.

Apologies for double post but despite numerous possibilities, there is still no fix.

Here is a video of the issue

I have sent a message to Square Enix for assistance but I may not get anywhere.

I tested it earlier and it does indeed work on the condition that the file is in .avi format

Now it makes perfect sense. The movie mod is nearly 5GB on its own

Could they be manually installed and the movie option set to "No Change"?

I was wondering why the remade FMV's were not in the movies mod in the catalog?

I'm talking about these in particular

And these

They were an option in Bootleg but not 7th Heaven.

I am also using mods with Tonberry (which has nothing to do with the slowdown) so 1080p is preferred.

Looks like I am stuck. Thanks for the help.

The frame limiter in ff8 is poor but not totally broken like ff7.  That's part of it.,

 - Second, if using the speed up option in Steam, that can have issues.

 - Failing that - try forcing 1 CPU and not multiple cores, by going to task manager and selecting affinity option to use ONLY 'CPU 0'.

- You could always also try with Aero or whatever bells and whistles ff10 uses in the background.

 - Look at task manager cpu usage and see what else is eating processor power.

- Try without any antivirus software running

- Try setting graphic card to use max performance instead of power saving

- Make sure CPU setting is set to performance and not a saving mode.

All of those suggestions made no difference.

Original Graphic Mode and low resolution (one or the other) gets rid of it but it makes the game look bad.
Taking off the graphical mods doesn't help either.

I wish to play at 1080p without Original Graphic Mode.

For testing, I tried my original disc copy of FF8 and the problem doesn't occur there. It only appears on the Steam version, even without using the speed up option.

It occurs in areas that have a kind of blur effect on screen like in the before mentioned areas.

My PC specs are as follows

OS - Windows 10 Home 64-bit
CPU - AMD FX-8350 8-Core 4Ghz
GPU - AMD Radeon RX 560

It's only during parts like Gilgamesh appearing and Rinoa's Wishing Star which I have heard is common.

If anything else is needed, please let me know.

I hope this is the correct place to ask this.

So in certain places of FF8, there is a lot of slowdown (Gilgamesh appearences, Rinoa's Wishing Star etc.)
Did anyone find a fix for this other than enabling "Original Graphic Mode"?

I'm playing the Steam version.

Thanks in advance.

EDIT: Lowering the resolution helps too but I would rather play at 1080p
