    The other day I was in a charity shop and seen this game it looked in good condition(like New)and I have been after this game for a while so bought it
    Well when I put disk no.1 into my pc(windows XP) it just came up with what was on the disk a few files that my pc cant seem to understand ?
    I looked at the booklet and it said to insert the disk marked "install disk"
    It has 4 disks in the case but none marked install disk ?
    so is it missing a disk or is my pc not able to understand it ?
    any help with this would be greatly appreciated as I would really love to play this
    thanks

    Yeah I think that the Install Disk is hidden behind Disc 1. :D

    Oh you may need to get an update.

    If your chipset is Nividia, download the FF8SQEANVPATCH.ZIP, for all others, download the other ZIP file. When I installed the game without the update, I had lines in my game. With the patch, the lines disapeared :)
