Having some trouble getting AH to work after installing Aali's drivers and Reunion. The OGG files seem to have extracted just fine to /music/vgmstream, but I'm still getting an "error loading music plugin" message and lackluster MIDI sound when I run the game. I'm guessing it has something to do with my opengl.cfg file settings:
Code: [Select]
# 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\vgmstream_music.fgp

As far as I can see, there is no vgmstream_music.fgp in my plugins folder. There is, oddly enough, a ff7music.fgp. If I direct the config file to it, the music simply cuts out completely.

Ah, I think I see. I may have skipped a step when installing Aali's drivers. I'll reinstall from scratch and give it another shot tomorrow. I am a bit concerned about running everything in the correct order, however. Is the following general sequence correct, or am I missing something?

Install FF7 from Steam ---> Copy and convert the game to the 1.02 English version using FF7 Game Converter ---> Install latest version of Aali's drivers ---> Install Reunion ---> Install Anxious Hearts

Am I at least on the right track here?

If you don't use any other texture or mods
That's how i did and works fine
Oh, and you should turn off any anti-virus and run AH.exe as admin

Ok, I think I see the problem.

It seems that the FF7 Converter automatically includes Aali's drivers v 0.7.11b (at least, I believe so; the documentation in the thread is a bit unclear - http://forums.qhimm.com/index.php?topic=14047.0 )

If that's the case, then I imagine that installing the newest version of Aali's drivers (upon which Reunion depends) on top of it would cause a problem. Is this likely the culprit? If so, is there any way around it?

Anxious Heart supports the new version of Aali's driver only.  There is no way round that except to use the new version.

Mm, I suspected as much. Then it appears my problem is that the only tool that converts Steam FF7 to the moddable 1998 version automatically installs an obsolete version of Aali's drivers.

One solution might be to cut out the conversion, then. I'll see if I can get a hold of a fresh 1998 version and start from there.

Or just install Aali's new driver (8.1b) after converting the game...

The new drivers can be installed on top of the old ones? I thought doing that might have been my problem the first time.

Could be I just installed Aali's drivers incorrectly.

I wrote there
Quote
UNZIP NOT Aalis driver 0.7.11b into the game folder. (included with "Everything is made of light" Fix)

What exactly do I have to write, so that is clear?



If your game folder is not in a system folder (ie not in "My Documents", not as a folder on the desktop, not in "Program Files" or similar), you can Aalis driver 0.8.1b unzip directly into the game folder.
Overwrite the already  existing files there.

Then you must edit the file "ff7_opengl.reg" (right click on it and choose Edit).
Find the line

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\VirtualStore\Machine\SOFTWARE\Square Soft, Inc.\Final Fantasy VII\1.00\Graphics]

and replace with

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Classes\VirtualStore\Machine\SOFTWARE\Square Soft, Inc.\Final Fantasy VII\1.00\Graphics]



Also find the line

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\VirtualStore\Machine\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Square Soft, Inc.\Final Fantasy VII\1.00\Graphics]

and replace with

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Classes\VirtualStore\Machine\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Square Soft, Inc.\Final Fantasy VII\1.00\Graphics]



Then save the file and load it right again into your Editor, to make sure that the changes were really saved.

After that you edit the file "ff7_opengl.cfg" and re adding this line:

load_library = Multi.dll

Now Aalis driver 0.8.1b is integrated and you can install other mods.

@panjshirlion  Your issue has nothing to do with Anxious Heart, which is working perfectly.

Please take all Aali driver stuff to his thread.  :)

So going back to the uploader issue thing ever think of getting dropbox and send it that way?

This has to be sent by torrent.  As I've said a few times, no site will allow the bandwidth to download a file this size (the link will be cancelled).  Especially not dropbox.

This is staying as a torrent, permanently.

hm I've sent exe from it before namely the main ff7.exe.  At any rate they torrent might be corrupt as it wouldn't install.  I'm trying it again and I believe I have the driver but I'll double check.

Hey hey, first post in an awesome forum!

I have the 2012 re-release downloaded from square. Running it on win 8.1 laptop. Game works fine but not AH. When I check the "music_ogg" folder it still has all the original "ogg" files. Here's the rub, all the files I chose from AH is in there as well, except they are "logg" files.

When I play the game it uses the "original" sound files and not the AH ones. Does anybody else have this problem?

Cheers

Hey hey again!

I've tried a clean install while the antivirus was inactive and the same with AH + run as admin ofc :)

Unfortunately nothing changed and the funny part is that it's working fine on my stationary computer, it is only the laptop that keeps on resisting me :/

Someone else had that issue.  look back through this thread.  It may be that your antivirus is still interfering even when disabled.  Try to close it entirely from task manager.

1) Bootleg comes with it's own option for Anxious Heart and installs it automatically if chosen. Installing it separately is not needed.

2) The OP says it has been updated to A04, which only supports Aali's Driver v0.8 and newer. Bootleg uses A03b, which supports Aali's Driver v0.7.11b and is what is installed when using Bootleg. Trying to mix and match the drivers after a Bootleg install is definitely not recommended.

Bootleg has Anxious Heart options. Install from Bootleg, and never run a separate installer after Bootleg has been run.

This installer was designed to be run separately.  All of my mods are.  But some will have issues if run separately after bootleg.  I can't see how this would be one of those.

Never run it if you use Bootleg.  The latest Anxious Heart is designed for Aali's latest driver 0.8.1b. Bootleg uses the driver version 0.7.11b.
