Set each exe in 7th heaven // FF7 folder to "run as admin" > Right click application files, properties, application tab, run as admin.

In Nvidia control panel, click help >> debug mode

Create profile for game, force shader cache off.

Run game with "Configure game driver settings" window open

Run game with task manager >>> gPU window open

Wait until the memory is nearly full >>> click clear texture cache button

Memory will now dip between 90 and 95% full with minimal screen tearing ... (90 minute play session)

Still running tests, will attempt to update this with additional info

error messages:

The NVIDIA OpenGL driver has encountered
an out of memory error. This application might
behave inconsistently and fail.

DMP errors >>> App does not have "permission" to purge the cache

possible dev path to resolution>> Consider adding a option to call glFinish() at lease once every frame after *SwapBuffers(), and a debugging option to call it once per render pass in your frame. With that, you can help localize the cause of a GPU-thrown error

wonderful app can't wait to keep using it guys. thank you for all your hard work
