HowTo / Notes

Video playback via installing the TrueMotion 2.0 Codec
Do not prefer to play FF-VII on PC!

The PC-Version of the 1997 game has been filled with bugs and issues since the very beginning, and official patches haven't changed much to make things run better. Thanks to unofficial fixes, it's more or less playable, but you will most likely still face problems with minigames or video playback of the cutscenes.

The PC version is, as well, poor in quality.

For best experience, I recommend playing the PSX version via emulation or taking a look at the 2012 released one, basically being identical.

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
