That is a solution for it but it causes another problem aswell by not resuming on time. We just need a way to mute the SW synthesizer volume, registry hacks anyone?

Yes! I have the exact same problem, AND i have had the same first problem with the double-midi and volume control.
Seems like those are Vista-related problems. Does anyone know a solution for this, cause i couldnt find one this time...
Yea there's been a resuming problem so I'm gonna try and figure out a way to install a different midi mapper by editing the registry somehow.
Does anyone know if the Yamaha S-YXG50 Software Synthesizer works on XP because that would be a start?

Try putting this file into data\midi (backup the previous version of awe.lgp first!) and setting the midi device to soundfont mid (awe32/64) whatever in ff7config. 

This is a file full of very short blank midi files instead of the proper music, so the game still thinks it's playing midis but they're silent.

I made the file using ficedula's lgp editor - if you look inside it, the file names are completely meaningless so it won't help.  The only problem i get is an occasional crash of ff7music, but the game continues.  You can switch to desktop and restart ff7music no problem which sorts it out, but would be good if anyone knows a way around this.

Hope this helps - i spent so long trying to get ff7 working on vista x64 and finally it does with good music! Enjoy :D

go here and download the file

btw - this is my first post on a forum anywhere - any feedback would be much appreciated!

For vista try this method if you can't be bothered editing the midi.lgp file because I just tested it and it worked. So now I can play with FF7music with no annoying midi running in the background and the sound is still going.

Thanks for the file jmd works great :)

Yea the only midi device on the computer is the Microsoft Synthesizer which isn't listed in speaker properties.
This means we must find a way to destroy it or add a controllable midi device.
Know of any good software ones available that work on Vista?

My Vista problem with FF7music is similar.
Midi and ff7music play at the same time because there's no way in Vista that you can change the midi controls seperate to the Master Volume to mute so if you try and mute or even turn down the music in Final Fantasy VII then the sound gets turned down as well.
I've tried editing the registry so that FF7 does not have a midi device but this disables all sound trying to go through FF7.
Solutions anyone?

everything is fine except for the text. Is this still a problem for you?

If you use the Adaptive AA does it corrupt the text or anything. One thing i noticed turning the AA settings up higher was that some things would look garbled up.

or even getting FSAA working without no screw ups would be good is there a way to do it without the use of a patch or something?

Whenever I get into Kalm and start telling the story the first monster battles me and Sephiroth. My problem is with this battle not letting me progress because Sephiroth always misses his attacks on the Dragon which leaves him to repeatedly cast Life2 on me as I die continuously. The Dragon always does no damage to him so theres no way I can get out of this battle. Can anyone help me?

Yeah I hate it how people put in requests to change the resolution or add the 'x' feature to this patch because it is a total lack of respect to the Saint.
Reading through all this I would just like to say thanks to the Saint for putting up with peoples useless requests and bitching. Also thanks for all the hard work and effort he's put into making the patch public use. Assuming he's still alive after whats been happening :-?

is there anyway to modify this patch so that its compatible with FF8?

What are your drivers?

If you are using the latest catalyst ones try the Omegadrivers. I recommend version 2.6.25a because thats what I use with my 9600 and it works with no problems :wink: [/url]

Because I enable VSync and the battle swirl and everything is perfect timing.

Got it working! :D

Apparently you have to have the music files and plugins in the same folder. I was running the plugins from a seperate folder.

I've tried the same INI file as the old one and ficelib also re-patched it a number of times and it still there's still no music. Is it something to do with the music paths because I've checked all that?

If your speaking of framerate jumps the only thing I can think of correcting it is to Enable VSync somehow. I have an ATI so I wouldn't really know but I would try VSync first if I were you cause it might be the simple things that count. :wink:

The game plays great and extermely fast, but there's a slight problem: with the opening intro movie, i had to go into quarter-screen, low-res movies or the game would crash.  That wasn't too bad.

To stop the intro from crashing at high-res or to skip it from playing just delete the publish.PAK file in your FF8 directory. As for the other movie freezing just try it in high res then go to lower res. There's not much else I can help you with because my movies are also doing the same thing too.

Extract the movies somewhere on your hard drive and go to run and type in regedit then ok.

Follow this path >  HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SOFTWARE/Square Soft,Inc/Final Fantasy VII

Look to the window on the right and you'll see [DataDrive]

Right click on [DataDrive] then click <modify>

Underneath value data just type in the path where you extracted your movies to.
