Hi,i have a little problem since i upgraded the ali drivers to version 0.7.8b.
First i had the remix mod with a fresh install of final fantasy vii installed and all worked fine (texture loading, 1024x768 full screen,etc...), then i tried another fresh install without the remix patch and with alis 0.7.6b drivers and all worked fine too except for some crashes at some points of the game.
This was the reason why i actually changed my drivers to the 0.7.8b but with this driver im not able to start the game.
On all versions (including the remix patcher that has alis drivers 0.7.3b) i get a start error (No useful indirect path found, search app.log for more infomation) but clicking on accept on this popup the game starts fine but on the 0.7.8b drivers after accepting the popup a new popup comes up (ooops something very bad happening.....) and the game doesnt start.I have tried the patch with a fresh install without mods and the with the remix patch but it doesnt go.
Im using the original cd version of FF7 and the disks are fine.Here is my app.log but i think its very hard to figure out what is happening.

ERROR: unhandled exception
Another thing, i only get the ooops crash dump error if i set my resolution to not fullscreen, if i set it to fullscreen the game simple has a black screen during 1-2 seconds and exits to desktop without giving me any error.The last string on app.log if i set it to fullscreen disappear (the unhandled exception string, the app.log ends in Lock Unlock Test)
Have tried setting resolutions like 640x480 full and not fullscreen, 800x600 full and not, 1280x800 full and not 1280x900 full and not and finally 1280x1024 full and not but my original resolution and notebooks max resolution is 1024x768 and thats the same resolution i was playing the game with older alis drivers so i think that the resolution is not the problem here.
I hope you have some ideas to help me out with this problem and sorry for my bad english, im learning it right now hehe and posting on forums and chats help very much.
Thanks and keep up making this great patch!!!
EDIT: Im using windows xp sp3 32 bit version.
