What works

Installation worked without a hitch. No problems with gameplay after installing directmusic; world view, in town, and battles.

What does not

Hardware Acceleration. FF8_Config didn't work normally for me. You can change the settings but it wouldn't draw the config window properly unless another window was dragged over it. FF8 Config window drawn incorrectly: FF8 Config window when another window is being dragged over it:


What was not tested

I have only tested gameplay in Disc 1 so far. Did not try updating to 1.2.

Additional Comments

I rated the game Gold, as the FF8_Config window was not working normally for me, and needed directmusic from winetricks for sound to work. Admin note: rating changed to conform to the rating definitions.
