Selected Test Results

What works

The setup works and installs the game as it should.

On first start, the configuration wizard 'ff77config.exe' is run and stores anything set.

Then, the game starts immediately and Cloud Strife is spawned at the bottom of the screen, located at the path that leads up Mount Corel.

Controls work, as well as moving forward to some point.

What does not

When pressing the button that should bring up the menu, or after moving forward on the screen to some point (maybe to that, where either music is triggered or the background showing the 'mako reactor' at Mount Corel is loaded) or when trying to talk to a person near the pathway, the game freezes with an unhandled exception error and closes after pressing the enter key.

8bit palette texture compatibility test in ff7config failed.

Midi-Playback test in ff7config failed.

HowTo / Notes

Video playback via installing the TrueMotion 2.0 Codec
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
