Hey guys, I recently started a craze of RPG completion including Breath Of Fire 4, Neverwinter Nights 2 and Final Fantasy 6 but when i came to play FF7 for PC the game loads up and the music plays but the screen is completely blank. I've tried various XP Patches and setting compatability to 95 and 98 mode but nothing seems to work. I seem to remember it worked on my old rig of a 754 XP2500 and Geforce 6800 but now it doesn't work. Any help or links to sites that would help would be appreciated thanks.

Cheers

I had the same problem when i tried playing it a few months ago. XP was probably patched so much since we last ran the game so that it wouldn't work. I'd probably suggest partitioning your hard drive and install windows 2000 (or lower), or use some virtualization program (although I'm not sure if it'll work; never tried it myself).

Sorry I can't really help you on this one. FF7 was the most problematic game I ever had to install and even now it crash randomly. I have the Ultimate Edition and I had to use this patch :

Have tried the patch, but don't seem to have any luck with it.
