Does this work for the psx version?? can someone confirm this?

Of course, if you can find "C:\Program Files" inside your PSX:

I'm in the process of re-making this (same interface) so I can release the source. The code is very messy and I want to clean it up a bit.

Good news: I did a bit of poking around on MSDN and found a way to play MP3 files without the use of a third party library (albeit unorthodox), which means I can continue developing the Music plug-in. The only downside is that it will not be compatible on x64 machines (64-bit is not the standard, yet).

No worries, I plan to support x64 eventually.

Hi there,

When I try de execute the "Multipatcher.exe" a little message tell me that the "MSVCR100.dll" can't be found.

Somebody can help me ? Maybe it's because I'm working on vista.

Thanks  :-D


Start browser of choice, visit search engine on choice, search for that .dll file, download, place in correct folder, you si winnar.

I love you for the magic patch, that was really my only gripe about FF8. and you fixed it. THANK YOU! :-D

I don't know about that, it's pretty much cheating. At least GFs have health in addition to being able to use them as many times as you want.

Anyways, great job on this Phun. This could be very useful in the near future.

EDIT: How about a transparent dialog boxes patch just like the one in FF7? Would something like that be hard to do?

Well, of course. You're changing a game mechanic to make the game easier. That's the very definition of cheating.

I could, but I wont (it's nothing personal; I see it as overkill). Currently I'm working on changing the monster level cap to 255 and discovering where their HP is calculated.

hmm, that magic thing sure sounds useful... but i am running a x64 OS hmm  :oops:

Everything, with the exception of the Music plug-in (which is being removed until further progress is made), works for both x86 and x64.

I cannot change the transparency of the dialogue boxes; Aali, on the other hand, might be able to.

It isn't exactly changing the transparency, more like hacking solid dialog boxes to be like the ones that appear when the characters are thinking about something. Like this:

I don't know if I'd use the transparency dialogue boxes. It'd be cool to try it out though, I like being able to see the full screen.

If only there was a way to add the speech in like subtitles. That would be pretty amazing. Like in FFX?

the whole dialogue box system (varying transparencies) are fairly integral to ff8's style. The whole idea of being stuck in squall's head is how the narrative is designed, and the box transparency is how its executed... i dont think subtitles would fit the game very well,  at least not without voiceacting and facial closeup cutscenes to show he's not talking.

It's not just transparency though. Just like in FF7, when a character thinks something the text is displayed (like this). So we can tell if the characters are thinking even if every box is transparent.

I'll see what I can do. I am busy re-making FF8Launcher (completed), making an All-in-One add-on, and testing a new add-on.

Don't bother with the transparent dialog boxes for now, I'm knee-deep in the field script engine as we speak and it should be fairly simple to tell where the "transparent window" flag is once I've found the right opcode.

I'm working on an All-in-One add-on. You can download the individual files here:

Thanks. This will save me a bunch of trouble.  :-D
