    hi guys,
    i had an old game collection - "Final Fantasy VII".
    it used to run smootly on my old comp (win 98).
    recently, i installed and try to play it on my new comp (win XP),
    it just won't run on my machine. i try to install the patch which
    found from net, but it still won't run at all.

    anyone knows how to fix this problems?

    i m thinking of getting a new one - "Final Fantasy VII Ultima Edition",
    but not sure if that is worth to buy or will it run on Win XP.

    thanks.

    well if you haven't noticed, FFVII has been going at about $70 used :eek: Good luck buying the Ultima version.

    As for the problem in hand, try the game in Windows 98 compatibility mode.

    70 $ , are you sure :eek:

    I have got about ten copies of that game ( it was like the craze in its day :p)
    maybe in 20 years I will be a millionaire because of them (y)

    on topic, check the back of the box if you still have it, it will give the specs for the game, and then you will definiatly know what it will and wont play on.

    yey! im going to be rich, thank you!

    thinking back, the game wasnt even that good, I never got past the start, where you have like 10 minutes to get out, that crazy machine gun arm guy was useless

    if the game wasnt that good why is it one of the most highly rated games ever made and the best selling final fantasy ever made
