Problems with the OST Remastered music.
« on: 2012-02-04 23:08:04 »
Hi,

I downloaded the OST Remastered music and I can select it in FF7Music. However, the music doesn't seem to be playing. The only version that I can get it working is the PSF files. The OST Remastered music is in the file format of .ogg. Does this make a difference?, and how do I set it so that the music plays the OST Remastered versions. Each song has already been designated to a song from the OST Remastered music.

Did you use my installer? If so, only the download marked "Full installer" comes with the remastered songs. It should be a few hundred megabytes, as opposed to the "minimal installer" which is only ~3MB and only includes the PSFs.

Yes, I did use your installer. The problem isn't that I don't have the music. I do. It's just that the music isn't playing when I select it in FF7Music. Like when I change the profile to OSTRemastered.

That's weird, I've never seen that before. Could you paste your ff7music log after attempting to play with OGGs?

Hmm... It's having trouble playing audio at all. It's very weird that it would have this problem with OGGs but not PSFs.

What output plugin are you using? I suggest giving out_ds.dll a try if you're not already, it tends to be more reliable if you've got other software (such as ff7) using sound also. You'll also wanna make sure ff7config is set to the right audio device.

I was using out_wave.dll. Like you said, I switched it to out_ds.dll. For ff7config, I only have one audio device and have been using that ever since I started playing FF7PC, however the OST Remastered music used to work for me, but it doesn't now for some reason.

It used to work? Hmm. Have you installed any other mods recently? Sometimes things conflict with each other, it's the only reason I can think of why it would suddenly stop working.

Nope, or at least I don't think so. The only mods that I've installed are the World Map Reconstruction(Phoenix) one, Aali graphics overhaul, and some character mods.
