Scripting and Reverse Engineering / FF7 problems
« on: 2001-12-26 19:16:00 »
I'm not going to stress my CPU if that is the problem.
Jari, do you think it's my CPU?


EDIT: Will the bugs in the CPU Stability Test harm my computer?

I think it was Samuel who used such a program to extract instruments from FF8. The instructions were in Japanese. I cannot read it. Samuel, how do I use all these programs?

I thought I would install another game to test me setup. Monkey Island 4 infact. The game done the same crash as the other games. This game comes with a nifty analyze proggy. The required CPU frequency is "200". Mine is apparentely "0".

Some more crashed occured when zipping the Diablo II Soundtrack using Winzip. Another when converting some WAVs to MP3s using MusicMatch Jukebox.

I've done all what you've said and I'm baffled. The main question of this was "Does FF7 have any known problems with AMD, especially the Palomino?"
It's not:
Virtual memory
Fast Writes

Its either AMD being AMD or dodgy harddisk being dodgy harddisk. I've had problems with my harddisk in the past. Many formats, changing of cluster size, cross-linked files, etcetera etcetera. My next buy will be an IBM harddrive/Norton Ghost.

I just got Windows XP Pro and I thought this would solve some problemos and it gets to the point of analysing my computer when it does the same freeze as it does in FF7.

Here's some other info:
Games that work:
Final Fantasy VIII
Diablo II: Lord of Destruction
Don't work:
Final Fantasy VII
Deus Ex

The games that don't work have the same kind of lock-up which occurs on the XP Setup. It's a freeze which I cannot, ALT+CTRL+DEL out of, the keyboard seems to not respond. I haven't tested if I can press Num Lock yet. All I can do is press Reset. That's why I cannot give you the Dr. Watson info.

You people here are a lot more experienced than me. The people who I work with at PC World take the mickey for having an AMD, so I can't rely on them.

Merry Christmas everyone, have a good one.

Even with 512mb DDR RAM, will I still need 350mb V-Memory.
I can reach the World Map for a couple o' minutes. So, I shouldn't set my v-memory to recommend? What shall I put to Minimum and Maximum?

Yep, crashes in Software, Win98SE, SBLive! 1024 Player, GeForce 2 Pro, 14.10, FF8 works fine with 14.10, FF7 used to work fine with some driver which I can't remember. The crash is the same type in world map and battles. I've been using NVmax to touch my card up. I've got RivaTuner but somehow, it's weird, it tells me that I'm running 1x2 AA when I have it on Auto. It's probably the drivers. If I check Riva or TNT the game loads with a black screen for a second then crashes to the desktop.

How should I set my V (I take it you're talking about Virtual Memory) -Memory? I've got it on Recommended at the moment. Doesn't this create a file about 64mb called win386.swp?
It seems that I'm being branded as a newbie spammer. Hmm. I should try other forums. No, this is the best, people actually know stuff here. :)

I've just installed FF7 on my new system and FF7 freezes after 2 minutes perhaps. Battle, field, or world map it all crashes. I wonder if it's AMD (Athlon XP Palomino 1700+) problem or to do with Detonator 14.10. I encounted a similar problem with my PIII, I can't remember which drivers I was using though. Yes, installed the nVidia patch and unchecked the nVidia box. Which drivers do you lot use with GeForce 2, FF7 and FF8?

My PC is going to be upgraded by 2002. At the moment it is:
Intel Pentium !!! 500
448mb SDRAM (PC100)
AOpen AXBsomething motherboard
13.5gb harddrive (hoo hoo hoo, God that's funny)
Creative GeForce2 Pro 64mb DDR 400mhz (Detonator 14.10)
Creative Labs Live! 1024 Player
Creative PC-DVD 12x IR Dxr3
Samsung SyncMaster 700s Plus (17")
Yamaha YST-M15 Speakers (Only two I'm afraid)
Motorola something-or-other 56k Modem
Windows 98 dual boot usind System Commander

That's about it. I hope to get a 2ghz AMD or Intel processor and convert my memory to PC133 or PC2600. Of course a new motherboard. Can anyone recommend a motherboard and processor manufacturer?
