You could try setting texture filtering to 3 or 4 or by setting hi-res textures to 2 and enabling the screen filtering option.

Bad idea. FF7 hates any kind of 2d filtering IIRC.

I know setting texture filtering to 3 or 4 is OK as I tested it last night. I just tested setting hi-res textures to 2 and enabling screen filtering and it looked quite nice. There wasn't any green lines or other weirdness.

That is because 3 or 4 do not filter the 2D graphics, just 3D I think anyways. Anyways, only way to get better looking Bgs with Pete's OpenGL is to use screen smoothing like n_w said.

yeah but the problem with screen smoothing is that it's extremely slow, and it blurs everything else unpleasantly. if you want a blurring effect, use shaders.

That is true but I suppose every little bit helps :D.

hushy: Don't the shaders require DX9 capable hardware? If so, then jesuschrist won't be able to use them.

In OGL 2 screen smoothing has almost 0 performance cost, and i think it does a nice job. Anyway, with that card, you'll maybe have better results with ogl 1.75. As n_w pointed, your card can't handle pixel shaders, what takes most of the ogl 2 advantages away.
