Since you have a nVidia card,if you're using Pete's D3D,then in the nVidia ctrl panel set the Texl alignement to 7,it will improve it a bit.

Man, I've never played the PSX version of that. I own the PC version and it looks so mech better! I mean besides the graphics problems. The graphics on Direct X are a lot sharper.

FF8? yeah, of course it looks better than running on an emu, the psx ver was desgined to run on a REAL psx ;) anyway IMHO i think RPGs are better played in a console. but grapical adventures are better played in the PC (again IMO). each to his own dude :)

The PC version looks MUCH better (depending on the video card). It's basically the playstation version but with high resolution (640x480) and 16 bit color, plus it has high quality text(not filtered text). You can achieve similar settings with emulators but most 3D games I've run through emulators have had graphics problems and just don't reach the same level of quality as PC ports. Still, they could have made the PC ports a lot better. They just did a direct port from the playstation to PC (even has 2 "slots" for saving games) and although it uses Direct3D it has a video card bias (it only runs well on Voodoo cards). The FF7 PC port was equally as bad. It's no wonder Square never ported FF9 onto the PC. FF8 got horrible reviews in the majority of game magazines.

See here's the problem. I've talked to a lot of people about this before.....and the majory agreed that the PSX version of FF8 looked better than the PC version. Wanna know why? Mainly the difference between a monitor and a TV. Jaggies and what not are more noticable on a monitor! And my god are the FF8 backgrounds damn ugly.

The highest SeeD level I've gained from the exam was 6...if he got 6+(or 5) and took all the SeeD tests up to 12, then he could easily reach 17.

You can't POSSIBLY think that PC ff8 is better than PSX FF8 on an emu! First off, all that you just said the PC version has, the PSX version has also when EMULATED on a high-end emulator (like epsxe). The key is that DATA stored on the game. You REALLY think that they drew up all new gfx and sounds for the PC version when they had it all on the psx version? No, they simply snagged it from the psx version and linked it to their PC engine. What does that mean? No better gfx, no better audio, simply an attempt to make it playable on PC.

"PC version has 640x480 res." - Blah, so does the emu. Both are linking to the same texture, you'll notice. However, the emu is not limited to 640x480.

I don't know about you guy's but the PC version of FF 8 looks better than the psx vers.., not because I only have it but u could tell it from the graphics baby!!!
But neojag is right about those camoflage squares in the 3D psx games. I hope they do fix that indeed......:rolleyes:

KillerShots: I believe ur wrong! I have both the PC and PSX version and, although it's almost what u said, the sounds and music were improved when compiled to the PC version. I read it some were on the Squaresoft website... and u can actually notice the diference!!

Sorry to say but the PC version is better than the PSX, even if emulated on ePSXe.

PCs are so much more powerful than the old 32 bit psx. My PC can run circles around it any day. Direct X has a more advanced 3D renderer than even that of the PS2 or Dreamcast. Thats why the X-Box is going to be popular, it has built in Direct X support.

It also depends on the video card. My VooDoo 5 can make even 640x480 look like 1024x768 with 4x anti-aliasing. And because the 3D looks kinda weird in the emulated PS version (where the PC version looks "solid"), I prefer the PC version. Plus, you have the higher quality movies and ChocoboWorld (the almost ultimate cheat for that game [save GameShark]). So, :p
