Crash on start-up. Multiple Issues.
« on: 2018-06-19 06:14:04 »
Been through numerous threads with similar issues, but no replies or not my same situation. Hopefully someone can help me out.

Just purchased FF7 through steam on my 15" Surface Book 2. Can play the game normally. I have saved games in all 10 slots.

Launching from Final Heaven starts the Eidos and Squaresoft movies both cropped to the upper left corner. Pressing a key at the title screen causes the crash.

Also, it seems the game is running on the integrated GPU and not my NVIDIA Ge Force GTX 1060.

Thanks in advance for any help. I love this game.

Workshop -> Settings -> FF7 EXE -> ff7_mo.exe

Do you have it set to launch with that? If not, change it and add it to your Nvidia Control Panel to run with the GPU.

No luck.  :(

Changed to FF7_mo.exe :: no change
Also added FF7 to the NVIDIA control panel :: no change

Thank you very much for the help, though!

UPDATE!!!

Ok, so after more dinking around the boards, it seems that a number of peeps have had issues with v1.55. So, on a whim I downloaded and installed v1.54, and the game will start and run. No crashes so far.

The issue that still was not resolved is that the game screen appears something like 200% larger than it should. If I run windowed mode, I can see everything, albeit at a 1/4 of my laptops screen size.

Any thoughts on this issue??

Thanks again!

The way i fix the huge screen issue is to right click the exe, choose properties, compatibility tab and check the disable DPI scaling box. That should be all you need
