Final Fantasy VIII on Windows 7

Posted by Trevor Sullivan on 2009/06/22

For anyone who’s interested, I just thought I’d let you all know that Final Fantasy VIII works on the Windows 7 Release Candidate without issue! If I recall correctly, there were some issues with FF8 working on Vista.

All I did was install it, and play it … it just works! 🙂

    Any news regarding Final Fantasy 8 & Final RTM Windows 7?

    I installed it without a problem but the game keeps crashing, mostly when videos suppose to play but not always, it’s always the same error message. so far moving binkw32.dll from one folder to another solved it but I’m stuck now at a point where I moved it again to solve a crash at the begining of a battle and now it crash after the battle and before I can save so I end up doing the same battle over & over again.
