So ... I was just wondering if it was possible to get this thing to work with the norwegian release? ... Nah, just kidding
Tho a norwegian release would own. Or maybe Old Norse. Heh...
Anyways, to get to the point. I've actually read thru all 20 pages here, but it's what? 4am? 4:30? So excuse me if I missed the answer, if it's already been posted; I'm having trouble keeping my eyes up.
So I get the dreaded black screen when I try to run FF7 with Hi Res. Made full install, patched 1.02 (or whatever it is), also tried to get the movies to run from HDD, tho I doubt that matters much in this case. Also checked, double checked and qadruple checked settings in the config. It's all as it should be. _And_ the game runs fine without hi res.
I've got an AMD 3700+, 1gig ram, Geforce 6800 Ultra aaaand... Err ... Is there anything more you need to know? Running latest driver for my videocard, maybe?
All this is trivial tho, because I suspect that hi res isn't working because I have a 16/10 widescreen monitor, meaning I don't have support for ... 1240x1024(?) resolution. I can run higher resolutions tho, so if I'm correct when I assume this is why hi res isn't working, is there any way to get this thing to run in windowed mode or such? Or if I'm not correct in my assumption; would anyone care to tell me how I can fix this?
PS! OFF TOPIC:
Ok, I'm just too lazy to search this one out (meaning I couldn't find it), tho I'm sure it's out there. The first video, intro/logo/whatever movie, doesn't play. I can press enter and get to the menu, and then in game movies play. Now, intro movie does not play from either CD or HDD. I'm thinking maybe the intro movie is non-existant? (In EmperorSteeles "walkthru" he says the game won't start without "eidos.avi", which I can't find on any of my discs. He also mentions some non-movie files, which also I haven't been able to locate.) Any ideas?
