Troubleshooting / Re: FF7 Lagging only in battle 9 FPS
« on: 2014-07-30 06:02:38 »
This is highly annoying, but you can try some.

1) It could be that your Battle models are too complex (rather unlikely).
Rename the existing battle.lgp inside the folder "[game folder]\data\battle" and copy the battle.lgp from the installation CD.
Run the game and see if things improve.
Now, if the 15 FPS be achieved, it was because of the battle.lgp.
If not, rename everything back.

2) Maybe something does not work with the shader unit.
You can try to play without shader.
For this you open the file 'ff7_opengl.cfg' with Notepad, search the line that starts with "use_shaders =" and sets an 'off' behind.

3) There have been issues with newer graphics card drivers in the past.
Unfortunately, I can not tell for NVIDIA which driver version is guaranteed work, you would have test various older versions.

There is also a test program with which you can test the OpenGL capability of the driver and the graphics card.

May help to disable the internal resolution.
This reduces the computational effort somewhat.

A logical explanation however this is not...

I only had therefore demand, because I've already tried to learn c++ (the accentuation is on tried).
But I have found that it requires a large amount of concentration and endurance, especially for someone who has previously learned nothing comparable.

It would sure be nice if we could write Bootleg entirely in a high level language, batch has in many places some restrictions ...

I'm not quite sure, but is C++ not the modern version of C# ?

You can try different options in the ff7_opengl.cfg to switch on or off.
One possibility would be for example to switch the shaders off

use_shaders = off

Open the cfg file with notepad, search the appropriate option and change the switch behind it.

@ Arzga

Try FF7Config, section graphic, set to 640x480 fullscreen.

@ Jreeds26

look whether "load_library = multi.dll"  the last line of ff7_opengl.cfg is.
look also if "multi.dll" is in your game folder and "FF7anyCDv2.dll" in subfolder "LOADR".

After I had looked more closely, I see that you used the BC version of the Game Converter.
I do not think that the newer version 0.11 works better, but it's worth a try.

I have tested the GC also with Win 8.0, but was long time ago.
Maybe it helps the Win7 compatibility mode to switch on...

@ manta

I can discover nothing faulty in your FF7_GC.log unfortunately.

You can try to start FF7 with admin rights.
You can try to update your drivers for sound and/or graphics (so that it has sometimes been a problem).
You can try to start again FF7Config.

You can try to remove the Game Converter (start again and then choose 'Uninstall everything?') and then install bootleg (without GC).

If anything of these work, please get back here so we can fix the error.

There is a Final Fantasy 7 launch shortcut on my desktop which I tried launching from and all that does is go to a black screen and then back to desktop with no errors.
This is bad :(
Actually, the game should work so already.

Please search in the Games folder the file 'FF7_GC.log' and post it in here.
Has been started once FF7Config during the conversion?

Obviously Wine processed the commands other than MSDOS.
Someone who is familiar with both would have to be able to port the script.
Unfortunately, my knowledge about Wine is NULL  :(

If there is anyone here who is willing to port the script, I do not mind as long as I'm mentioned in a footnote.

Code: [Select]
REG QUERY "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion" /V ProductName


HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion
    ProductName REG_SZ  Microsoft Windows XP

Maybe need to write

REG QUERY "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion" /V ProductName

Does it work on a clean windows install ?
I have an earlier version of GC (I think 0.9) with a fresh XP version tested, without additionally installing anything, there it worked.

maybe i need something like VisualC++6  Runtime or some other componante for it to work in wine.
All commands (except CHOICE) are included in the basic version of XP ...

Unfortunately, I have not yet dealt further with NSIS.
However, I fear that some commands can not be transferred to NSIS.

@ sithlord48

Are you able to rewrite the script so that it works under Wine?
You have my express permission for it.

(Maybe it would be better to pack the package in a self-extracting ZIP archive, rather than in RAR ...)

To find out whether your problems at the GC or bootleg is, that would be helpful.
The modifications to the game are very extensive.
In order to find bugs, it is useful to make the modifications in small steps and in between to test, from when the error occurs.

Have you tried to start the game after my GameConverter but before bootleg?

Just as the picture looks, the script does not work with Wine.
Since I can not help you.

Troubleshooting / Re: Game is asking for disc 2
« on: 2014-05-01 00:50:04 »
Reading through your previous posts, you have the Steam version and you used the converter, correct? This should come with Kranmer's AnyCD mod, which allows you to just use disc 1 no matter what disc the game is actually asking for.
Even with version 2 of Kranmer's AnyCD mod ...
But obviously this does not work.

@ Astralogic

Did you at 'bootloader -> Configure -> Plugins'  have a hook at 'External Library', and below is 'Multi.dll'?

I now have as demanded the Custom Driver removed.

How about making the installer to use an external package? It would be better this way, because the installer would work with any newer version without the need of updating the program.
The installer is tuned to the Custom Driver 0.8.1b and will not work with other versions.

@ WyndBalduram

Have you installed 'norton 360'?

well that last comment compelled me to remove your mod and re download it, I rechecked the admin rights box and hey presto it worked this time.

Thanks for the info!
Obviously there is a problem with the granting of admin rights. :(

Rerun bootleg is not possible because bootleg does not reset the files to the origin.
You're probably going to uninstall the game, delete the registry and have to start over.

EDIT: Have you installed 'norton 360'?
