Hi all,

I've finally managed to get everything working, had a blast playing ye olde FF7 yesterday with the awesome mods. No problems whatsoever - everything works great!

Tried to start the game today, and no matter what I do I cannot get the game to run in fullscreen mode. The most annoying thing is NOTHING HAS CHANGED from last night AT ALL. I didn't even shut down the laptop that I played on (I have restarted it as a means of trying to fix this problem since however)

I've tried altering the resolution to 0, 0, toggled aspect ratio, toggled filtering on and off, tried every shader (pretty much every option in Aalia's driver window). I've disabled every single mod to see if it will launch, yet still get that error. App.log below:

Really at a loss as to what to do. Any help would be hugely appreciated.

Oh and windowed mode works fine at any resolution, just not fullscreen.

Reinstalling FF7_GameConverter_7H fixes this. However this problem returns when laptop goes in and out of standby (7thHeaven is not running when the laptop goes into standby mode).


Also happens any time I shut down / restart the computer.

Try fiddling with the DPI settings under the exe Properties.
