FFVIII PC glitch

  1. Eager for some help. My FFVIII has a fault. For instance when you summon Eden, my graphics card cannot produce the "blur" effect which it original supposed to. I don't know if you can understand me, but I do hope someone who knows reply me with a solution to the glitch... I'm using:


    OS: Windows 98SE
    Gfx: ABiT Siluro GeForce 4 Ti4200
    Gfx Driver: Detonator 40.71 for Win 98/ME


    Other than that it works fine.

    Have you tried other drivers? With this game, old drivers used to work better (using GeForce2), but they might not be compatible with GF4..

    After a few more formatting experiences (due to the messing around of my system with Linux) I found out that DirectX 7.0 can support that blur effect, but it does not support 8bit palettes. Previous DirectX versions seemed to work better.

    Concluson:
    FF8 PC works better with older drivers.

    Thanks Mictlantecuhtli.
