problems with FF8FMV
« on: 2001-09-29 23:29:00 »
i am able to use this program to bring up the list of playable movies.  When i select one, it tells me binkplay.exe could not be found, and that i should make sure it is in the same directory as ff8fmv.exe.  But it IS in the same directory.  If someone could give me a step by step description on how to do this (keeping in mind, im not the smartest person with computers) i would be most appreciative.

it is a bug.
just drag the .bik movie file extacted by the ff8fmv.exe over the binkplay.exe, it will play.

I'd like to watch the FMVs full-screen, but you can't watch it that way on full screen (by extracting then playing), with View it should work but with view it doesn't find that binkplay.exe :sad: Isn't there any way?

try copying bonkplay.exe to the same directory
OR use bink tools from http://www.radtools.com / http://www.radgametools.com

Is you run BINKPLAY with parameters then it's perfectly possible. Run Binkplay by itself and it should pop up a list of parameters you can give it...

I did find the bug in the source files. You have to rename binkplay.exe to ff8fbinkplay.exe. Now, it works fine on my computer.

Yay! It works. Thanks for your help. Unfortunately it doesn't resize them to full screen like FF8 PC does (in-game). Instead it fills the surrounding with black background. Oh well, at least you can watch it without all Windows crap there bothering you :smile:
