View Full Version : FFVII worth buying?

Simple question actually. Having read the number of tech support problems with the FF 7 download for PC ... I wonder ... should I buy it?

Well ... I ordered and installed it. I get as far as choosing new game and can't go any further. The picture quality absolutely sucks wet bread as well. I can't even find help from square to attempt to salvage the situation. That was a major ripoff!

I'm sorry to hear that you are running into problems with getting this game going. There are a few things that you'll want to do first, to make sure you're playing on the same level as everyone else.

- Update your DirectX to the latest version here: www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details... (http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=35)
- Update your graphics drivers here: for Nvidia (http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-us) or for AMD (http://support.amd.com/us/Pages/AMDSupportHub.aspx)
- Update Windows: windowsupdate.microsoft.com (http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com)

Past that, we'd want to make sure that you're running the game as an administrator, on the same drive that Windows is installed on and that there aren't any programs running in the background which might be hindering the game.

Thanks for the response Chris. This has been frustrating to say the least! I can update direct x and windows but I have no idea what my drivers are. I'm fairly ignorant when it comes to computer lore. I guess I should have stuck with playstation for this endeavor.
