Had a weird occurance here, and was wondering if anyone has had the same problem/could help me.

Okay, so I configured my video the way I wanted it, and loaded FF7 from disc. Everything was working dandy, but I didn't like the way the audio sounded. So I went and tried changing some of the configurations for the sound plugin (P.E.Op.S Dsound Audio Driver 1.9). Tried to reload ff7 and it simply freezes up on the black screen before the startup screen.

I went back and changed the sound settings back to what they were, but it still freezes up.

Here are my video settings, and I can post my audio settings also if needed.

try using Peops soft GPU (nice preset) and eternal 1.41 (or eternal lite if your CPU is 1ghz or lower).

Yeah, it's just a basic hp laptop, I'm not computer saavy at all.

Restarting let me play again, got into a few random battles and then the game went all screwy at the end of a battle (all enemies were gone, but time bar continued to fill all the way up and never went to experience screen, though I could still pause and unpause the game).

I'll give those plugins a try.
