Additional Comments

I *had* to install Aali's custom FF7 OpenGL driver. The latest version is linked from here: http://forums.qhimm.com/index.php?topic=8306.0 (note: run 'regedit' from an Ubuntu terminal window to Import the .reg file into Wine; use the regular .reg file, not the Vista 64-bit one) I also had to install the Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 SP1 Redistributable Package (x86) as per a post in the Aali thread regarding DLL issues: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=A5C84275-3B97-4AB7-A40D-3802B2AF5FC2&displaylang=en Note that running FF7Config wipes out the registry settings for Aali's OpenGL driver, so you have to re-import the .reg file after each time you (re-)run FF7Config. Also: I tried the unofficial 1.04 XP patch as well, but the in-game movies/videos don't seem to appear. I was able to see the main menu after hitting Escape, but that doesn't help much since FF7 is tightly integrated with in-game video sequences.

For users wanna try to use Timidity

You can apply the method describe in this Venezuelan blog (in Spanish) ->

https://inukaze.wordpress.com/juegos-wine/final-fantasy-vii-7-pc/jwff7pc-05/


On English :

now edit with root permissions , the file
" /etc/modules "

and add the lines

    #MIDI For FinalFantasy 7
    snd-seq-device
    snd-seq-midi
    snd-seq-oss
    snd-seq-midi-event
    snd-seq


if you dont have installed any soundfont , you can do the follow in a terminal

    sudo rm -rf /etc/sounds
    sudo mkdir /etc/sounds/
    sudo cp /etc/timidity/timidity.cfg /etc/timidity/timidity_original.cfg
    sudo cp /etc/init.d/timidity /etc/init.d/timidity_original
    cd $HOME/.wine/drive_c/"/Final Fantasy VII/data/midi/sf2″
    sudo cp FF7.sf2 /etc/sounds
    sudo chmod 777 /etc/sounds/FF7.sf2
    sudo chmod o+rw+x /etc/sounds/FF7.sf2


now edit with root permissions , the file
" /etc/timidity/timidity.cfg "

and just add the soundfonts and the config file

    soundfont /etc/sounds/FF7.sf2
    source /etc/timidity/freepats.cfg


now edit with root permissions , the file
" /etc/default/timidity "

and modify the line " TIM_ALSASEQPARAMS "

For this one :

TIM_ALSASEQPARAMS="-iA -B5,10 -Os1l -s 44100"

if you dont have started the daemon for timidity or timidity binary , you can run it explicit with

$ timidity -iADl -Os1 - -module=16 -cache- -audio-buffer=200%

if you wanna you can install timidity like daemon for start with the boot

if see in FF7Config , using wine , in the music tab , something like
"14:0 Midi Trought" , and you see , dont play music , you can disabled temporally

you can check in a terminal with

    $ pmidi -l
     Port     Client name                       Port name
     14:0     Midi Through                      Midi Through Port-0


if you wanna delete it , in the same terminal with root permissions use

$ rmmod snd_seq_dummy

    $ pmidi -l
    Port     Client name                       Port name
    128:0     TiMidity                          TiMidity port 0
    128:1     TiMidity                          TiMidity port 1
    128:2     TiMidity                          TiMidity port 2
    128:3     TiMidity                          TiMidity port 3


and now you can set Timidity inside the game and hear the original music from the game
