I have got Final Fantasy 7 playing on my PC using the original FF7 PS discs. I'm having problems with the running speed in certain areas. Mainly cinematics and battle scenes. Is there a way to speed it up?
Depending on the graphics plugin you're using, you can temporarily disable the framerate cap (framelimit). While the game is running, press del to display the switches - if I'm not mistaken framelimit is the first switch so you don't have to change to it, just toggle it (pageup or pagedown, I forget). In some games doing this during the FMV causes it to display very jerkily, but it should clear up immediately when you restore to the previous setting. I use it all the time to "fastforward" through post-battle victory poses, load menus, etc.
