Ok here is the matter what config I have tried I cannot get FF8 to even run :( I have all the latest drivers and I can't figure out why it won't run....I thought it was running through Petes D3D but it just gave me lines then my computer froze.....can anyone tell me of a config that has worked for them? :help:

I highly doubt you can run FF8 perfectly with a SIS 630, but if you say so I believe, for now...

Anyway, why use 32bit textures and a 16bit display resolution? You won't be able to see those colors, so you can go down to 16bit textures (R5G5B5A1) and enable dithering.
Thanks for that advice Fou-lu :) but honestly i run ff8 and ff9 perfect with my system :p
This one also works.

Runs FF8 (US/CD) perfect, and with decent speed (My system is slow so I need all the speed-ups I can get):

Pete's Software GPU 1.53
- 640x480x16 full-screen video mode
- Frame-skipping off (causes glitches)
- Stretch 1:1 (not like it has any influence, but is fastest on my system)
- No Game Fixes activated
ePSXe Internal SPU
Pete's ASPI CDR 1.6

Running through BIOS (-legaia option)
CDR timing off
