I apologise if this is in detail anywhere else but after searching through these and other forums since 9.00am this morning it must be hid pretty well.

Im not a emulation noob but im no master either. I can currently play FF8 perfectly (So quite sure its not a graphical problem) on my laptop via the disc. However upon making either a Bin/CCD/ISO/NRG via many different image softwares, I still get a blank screen. I have found many similar posts over the web but these either end without any definitive answer or there is mentioning of patching of the image files and no posts after that. I have spent most of my time up until now not only patching the images files with different sources of the fix. I have also used different software from different sites. Not only did I try this but I also put the patch files in the epsxe patch file folder as was mentioned in one topic but to no avail.

All I want if possible is a simple step to step guide of how I can put my FF8 pal disc in my drive use whatever software to make an image and then Add patches or whatever the fix is., (with links if possible as all the links i used never worked with any of my multiple images) and then play this wonderful game without killing my DVD drive trying to play it.

Thanks in advance

Edit: Typical After posting I managed to get the CCD Image to work I needed to use a different CDRom plugin as I always mount my images virtually.

So if anyone else has this blackscreen problem forget patching and all that malarky.

1. Make an image of the Disc (I know CCD works others may work too)
2. Get SaPus CDRom plugin 1.3.
3. Omg it works
4. Enjoy

you might want to search the codes file and change the all magics codes for the following characters to.....

"Zell-Codes\Have all Magics
50002002 0001
80077D60 6301


"Quistis Codes\Have all Magics
50002002 0001
80077E90 6301

the original code is invalid and they end up with limit breaks and guardian force in the list instead.

It only works for spell based limits like Quistis and selphies,
The end, rapture, full heal, the wall etc...

and the GF's don't work just freezes emulation.
they junction to stats though which is good
