It absolutely could be done.

Although personally I'd be more interested to see a full-on CRT shader, but converting it to plain GLSL from whatever the hell bsnes uses might be difficult. I nagged someone (I think it was Aali) into giving it a shot with an older version of that CRT shader, but it flat out didn't work right and looked ugly as sin.

@Kyu: How would I go about making the game use those files? I don't want to have to download PS just to use it.

I read the guy who had the same problem as I did and need to know how I can get it to stop displaying these textures.

## USER OPTIONS ##
## If you just want to play the game, these are the only options you'll want to change.

# set the window size (or fullscreen resolution) of FF7
# 0 means use original resolution (whatever ff7.exe provides)
# preserve_aspect adds black borders as needed to preserve a 4:3 aspect ratio
window_size_x = 1280
window_size_y = 720
preserve_aspect = yes
fullscreen = no

# mod directory
# subdirectroy of mods/ where textures will be loaded from
# does not affect the old external textures feature, those should still go in textures/
mod_path = none

# check your driver settings if this option doesn't seem to work
enable_vsync = yes

# limit snowboard, coaster and highway minigames to refresh rate / 2, i.e. 30fps for a 60hz display mode
# vsync must be enabled and working for this to have any effect
minigame_framelimiter = on

# same thing, but for the battle swirl
battleswirl_framelimiter = off

# allow FF7 to use linear filtering for its textures
# some things look slightly better with this option on, but alot of textures just lose their detail
linear_filter = off

# plugin used to play music, the FF7Music plugin MUST be enabled for FF7Music to work.
# If no music plugin is loaded the game will play MIDI as usual but FF7Music will NOT work.
#music_plugin = plugins/ff7music.fgp



## ENHANCEMENTS ##
## All the little extras that weren't part of the original game, default options include only trivial bug fixes.

# make all dialog boxes transparent, same effect as the transparent dialog boxes YAMP patch
transparent_dialogs = off

# allow max hp/mp to go over 9999, same effect as the YAMP patch by dziugo
break_9999limit = yes

# include armor in magic defense calculation

# expand battle viewport to cover entire screen and make the battle menu transparent
new_battle_interface = yes

# post-processing shader, used to apply fullscreen effects
post_source = shaders/bloom2.post

## ADVANCED OPTIONS ##
## Don't fiddle with these unless you know what you're doing.

# use shaders, if available and supported
# turn shaders off to use the OpenGL 1.1 backend
use_shaders = yes

# prevent glitches due to rounding errors by rendering in the nearest (larger, if supported)
# multiple of the original resolution and up/down-scaling
prevent_rounding_errors = yes

# enable alpha blending for textures without an existing blending effect
fancy_transparency = on

# display frames per second counter in upper right corner
show_fps = no

# display some real-time debug information
show_stats = yes

# store external textures in a compressed cache for increased performance
# compression is not lossless, some artifacts may appear when this option is in use
# texture cache does NOT update automatically if the source image changes, however, deleting anything from the cache
# will cause that file to be recreated from the source

# this option has no effect unless the use_new_timer option is on
use_stable_timer = no

# plugin used to play movies, FFMpeg is the only choice for now
movie_plugin = plugins/ffmpeg_movies.fgp



## MODDER OPTIONS ##
## These options are mostly useful to modders and should not be enabled during normal play.

# read files directly instead of using LGP archives
# for example; if FF7 is looking for aaab.rsd in char.lgp, this option will make it open direct/char/aaab.rsd first,
# if this file doesn't exist it will look for the original in the LGP archive
direct_mode = off

# show every failed attempt at loading a .png texture
show_missing_textures = no

Turn off fancy_transparency. If it doesn't work disable your shaders.

Hey Aali, any word on if the shaders issue with nVidia cards will ever be fixed? It's a driver issue for them, but it looks like they aren't ever going to fix it :(

Its already fixed. Instead you should be asking when the next release will be out. If we're lucky it might be done in january.

Hi, just need some help here. W/o aali's driver, I get black pixels appearing all over the game screen.

However, if i use aali's driver to launch the game, i get a error: fail to load custom driver

What am I not doing right? Followed the steps, use the latest 7.11b version, upgraded my nvidia drivers and my game is v1.2

The game is FF8 btw, on Vista x32.

My config file, I have no app log as I have been unable to launch using the custom driver:
Code: [Select]

Then it's not Aali's driver fault.

Hi! I installed FF7 original game, then i decided to instal the last custom driver (7.11), but there are many bug:

http://www.imagup.com/data/1138306880.html

You need to set "use_shaders = no" in your  "ff7_opengl.cfg"

Aali,

I'm having a crashing problem after installing the Menu Overhaul Project from this thread http://forums.qhimm.com/index.php?topic=11649.925

DLPB had me send him my ff7.exe which crashes on my system but runs fine on his.  He was stumped as to the cause and thought you might be able to shed some light...

If you could look at this crash dump and see if you can discover anything, that would be great.  Thanks.

# ff7_opengl-0.7.10b config file



## USER OPTIONS ##
## If you just want to play the game, these are the only options you'll want to change.

# set the window size (or fullscreen resolution) of FF7
# 0 means use original resolution (whatever ff7.exe provides)
# preserve_aspect adds black borders as needed to preserve a 4:3 aspect ratio
window_size_x = 1280
window_size_y = 960
preserve_aspect = yes
fullscreen = no

# mod directory
# subdirectroy of mods/ where textures will be loaded from
# does not affect the old external textures feature, those should still go in textures/
mod_path=DK

# check your driver settings if this option doesn't seem to work
enable_vsync = yes

# limit snowboard, coaster and highway minigames to refresh rate / 2, i.e. 30fps for a 60hz display mode
# vsync must be enabled and working for this to have any effect
minigame_framelimiter = on

# same thing, but for the battle swirl
battleswirl_framelimiter = off

# allow FF7 to use linear filtering for its textures
# some things look slightly better with this option on, but alot of textures just lose their detail
linear_filter = off

# plugin used to play music, the FF7Music plugin MUST be enabled for FF7Music to work.
# If no music plugin is loaded the game will play MIDI as usual but FF7Music will NOT work.
#music_plugin = plugins/ff7music.fgp



## ENHANCEMENTS ##
## All the little extras that weren't part of the original game, default options include only trivial bug fixes.

# make all dialog boxes transparent, same effect as the transparent dialog boxes YAMP patch
transparent_dialogs = off

# allow max hp/mp to go over 9999, same effect as the YAMP patch by dziugo
# break_9999limit

# include armor in magic defense calculation
mdef_fix = yes

# expand battle viewport to cover entire screen and make the battle menu transparent
new_battle_interface = on

# post-processing shader, used to apply fullscreen effects
post_source = shaders/bloom2.post
enable_postprocessing = no



## ADVANCED OPTIONS ##
## Don't fiddle with these unless you know what you're doing.

# use shaders, if available and supported
# turn shaders off to use the OpenGL 1.1 backend
use_shaders = yes

# prevent glitches due to rounding errors by rendering in the nearest (larger, if supported)
# multiple of the original resolution and up/down-scaling
prevent_rounding_errors = yes

# enable alpha blending for textures without an existing blending effect
fancy_transparency = on

# display frames per second counter in upper right corner
show_fps = no

# display some real-time debug information
show_stats = no

# store external textures in a compressed cache for increased performance
# compression is not lossless, some artifacts may appear when this option is in use
# texture cache does NOT update automatically if the source image changes, however, deleting anything from the cache
# will cause that file to be recreated from the source
compress_textures = yes

# use pixel buffer objects to speed up texture loading
# will probably crash horribly on ATI cards but should work for NVIDIA users
use_pbo = no

# replace FF7's default framelimiter timer source
use_new_timer = yes

# use a more stable (but less accurate) timer to control FF7's framelimiter
# this option has no effect unless the use_new_timer option is on
use_stable_timer = no

# plugin used to play movies, FFMpeg is the only choice for now
movie_plugin = plugins/ffmpeg_movies.fgp



## MODDER OPTIONS ##
## These options are mostly useful to modders and should not be enabled during normal play.

# read files directly instead of using LGP archives
# for example; if FF7 is looking for aaab.rsd in char.lgp, this option will make it open direct/char/aaab.rsd first,
# if this file doesn't exist it will look for the original in the LGP archive
direct_mode = off

# show every failed attempt at loading a .png texture
show_missing_textures = no

Link doesn't work, please use something other than google docs.

But before you upload it somewhere else, look at the detailed error report (the one that comes after the drivers own crash message) and tell me if you see "BEX" in there.

I've updated my previous post with a different service, hopefully that one will work.

I'm sorry, but I don't know what you mean by 'detailed error report'.  When the program crashes, all I see is a dialog box which contains:
Code: [Select]
Oops! Something very bad happened
Wrote crash.dmp to FF7 install dir.
Please provide a copy of it along with APP.LOG when reporting this error.
Write emergency save to save/crash.ff7?

...followed by another dialog box...

Code: [Select]
ff7.exe has stopped working

A problem caused the program to stop working correctly.
Please close the program.

-> Close the Program

I don't see any other error information.  I did look in event viewer and found some more information, but I have no idea if it's what you were looking for:
Code: [Select]
Faulting application name: ff7.exe, version: 0.0.0.0, time stamp: 0x35feae6f
Faulting module name: ff7.exe, version: 0.0.0.0, time stamp: 0x35feae6f
Exception code: 0xc0000005
Fault offset: 0x00513b35
Faulting process id: 0xbc4
Faulting application start time: 0x01ccba1cbea214b6

Thanks for your time.

Just as I thought. Turn off DEP and smack Dan for distributing such garbage :) (if anyone recalls I had the same problem with my modified FF7Config.exe)

Heh figures. It is also possible to make exceptions for certain programs so DEP will not run on these, if you are so inclined to keep DEP on. Its usefulness is debatable as it is.

But why would it work before the menu overhaul is applied?  His default 1.02 works?

A-ha, yes that was it.  It's working now with no crash.  Thank you very much!

when I open the APP, it says it uses an internal resolution of 1920x1440.

How can I change that? I want to set it higher and see, how the result looks.

You put code in a non-executable segment. You shouldn't do that.

No you dont. Best case you get an FSAA effect (which will be inferior to real anti-aliasing), worst case it just looks like crap.
