Hello Aali! I doubt you will see this any time soon, but thank you for the amazing driver!

I had a question about ff8 and it's modpath... is the only thing that works right now the path to the menu?  Also - I have upscaled Triple Triad and wanted to put it into the game -- but have no idea how without a modpath to follow.  I've managed to make the tim file for the cards, but have no way for the game to see it.  I have a forum topic on the subject here.

Any chance there's plans on having the driver be able to read external tim files placed in a folder?

Thanks! You're amazing!

You can't. The CD change is built into the game's scripting engine. It asks you for disc changes even if they're already in your optical drive.

If you rip your own CDs and store the ISOs on your hard drive, you can use something like Daemon Tools to mount them to a virtual drive when it asks for switches, so you don't need to physically swap them yourself.

If it's FF7, you can. If it's FF8, you can't. But you can do virtual images, like Shard said.

So I'm having some odd behavior out of the VGMstream plugin. Specifically, when I start the game, when the bombing run music is supposed to start playing, I get silence. At some point *after* that, the music starts working. Sometimes it's after the first battle. Sometimes I have to change the music volume in the in game options menu. Sometimes it just won't start at all. Generally, if it does start working, it doesn't stop working, unless I restart the exe. Also, music is often missing when I load a save game, even if it was playing before I saved.

I have Aali 0.8.1b, Reunion, and Anxious Heart installed. (In that order). Nothing else.

Don't use Anxious Heart. 0.8.1b has support for the music already.

Anxious Heart has been updated to install the ogg properly for the new version of Aali's driver.  So DO install it.

Yeah, I'm using the very latest which outright says it doesn't support FF7Music anymore and supports the vgmstream plugin, so I don't know what's going on *shrugs*

Hey just installed this new driver, but now ALL texture mods are not showing up anymore. And even the font and Menu/GUI looks very pixelated.

Did I do something wrong? Or do I have to load it in 7th Heaven or something?

FF7Music also works with the new driver.
Only Covarrs Installer could make problems...

The new driver don't supports textures in the folder "textures" anymore.
The "Team Avalanche GUI v2.0.8" Mod no longer works, that is also installed with bootleg.
But that belongs in another thread

Seems to be some sort of regression in 0.8 branch to me.

Color range is wrong in the new ffmpeg plugin. Everything is washed out and blacks are now grey. Just replacing ffmpeg_movies.fgp with an older version fixes it.


Not sure if this has been asked, but is it possible to center the image so there's black bars above and below it as opposed to just below?

The problem is with the color conversion shader, you can try the following one:

Nope, it's not intended for use with the Steam version.

If you want to use it with the Steam version, you'll need to convert it to the 1998 version first. Of course, I only advise this if you want to use mods that require it; if you just want the features built into the driver itself, they're largely already included in the Steam version.

Nah, the opengl driver handles the FPS far better and the Hyperjump crash is also solved. But the question is for which FF you want to use it? I think the direct9 and opengl driver are very equal for VIII.

New sound driver seems to mute sound effects a lot when it should only be muting music. Known issue?

At the end of the Kalm flashback this is especially obvious:

1:55:40 to 1:57:10 is all silence here.

I am running the old version of  FF7 with version 0.81b of Aali's OpenGL drivers, and everything is white.  My App.log is saying that textures are failing to load.  I ran a max install, applied the 1.02 patch, installed the 0.81b drivers, configured FF7config.exe, ran the updated registry file, and adjusted the opengl config file.  Beginning fmv is white, textures are white - models load though.  What do I have to do to fix this?

Here is a copy of my app.log

You've set the option for the mod_path wrong, I think.
Either on 'mod_path = none' or to sub-folders in the mods folder, eg

mod_path = Reunion

Thank you for checking out my problem, Kompass.

 I set mod_path equal to none, and it simply treated it as if there were a sub-folder in the mods folder called "none".   :P  It did not disable searching for mod files.   I don't have any mods installed - I was just wanting to play the game with the updated graphics engine with all the original models and textures, with updated music.  The graphics work fine with version 0.7.11b, but then I can't use the updated music.  Is there a way to basically tell this driver to use the default textures?

Actually should be at 'none', the original files are used, unless they are faulty.

You can copy from the installation CD the folder 'data' to your game folder again manually.

Or did you forget to install the 'Official Patch 1.02'?
Look here

I did install the latest 1.02 patch before applying the graphics plugins.  I haven't tried copying the data directly from the CD's - I made images of my old discs and am using Daemon Tools to mount them.

I went ahead and uninstalled and reinstalled the game (max install), applied full control in the security settings of the folders to the users group, applied the recommended patches and drivers in the correct order, etc.  Based on everything I have read, I strongly believe I did everything necessary for the game to run properly.  The FMV sequences still appear only as blank white screens (audio works) and the textures are all white.  The shapes of the textures are there, they are just white.  This is puzzling to me!  Lol

Do you have the original installation CD yet?
Attempts to copy the folder 'data' from there to your hard drive.
I had to also massive problems to produce clean images of the CD's.
