How to Play Final Fantasy VII PC Original (Unmodified) on Windows 10

Final Fantasy VII is one of the most beloved RPGs of all time, and many fans still want to experience it in its original form on PC. However, the 1998 PC release of the game is not compatible with modern systems, and the newer re-releases have some changes and patches that may affect the modding potential. In this article, we will show you how to install and run Final Fantasy VII PC Original (Unmodified) on Windows 10, using a combination of patches, tools and emulators.

Final Fantasy VII PC Original (Unmodified)

Step 1: Get the game files

The first thing you need to do is to get the game files from your original CD-ROMs or from a digital download. If you have the CD-ROMs, you can use a tool like ImgBurn to create ISO images of each disc. If you have a digital download, you can use a tool like 7-Zip to extract the files from the installer. You should have four folders named FF7DISC1, FF7DISC2, FF7DISC3 and FF7DISC4, each containing a DATA folder and a FF7.exe file.

Step 2: Patch the game

The next step is to patch the game to fix some bugs and make it run better on Windows 10. You can use a tool like Aali's Custom Graphics Driver to patch the game files and enable some graphical enhancements. You can download the latest version of the driver from this link. Extract the contents of the zip file to your FF7DISC1 folder, and run ff7_opengl.reg to apply the registry settings. Then, open ff7_opengl.cfg with a text editor and change the following lines:

# set the window size (and fullscreen resolution) of FF7

# 0 means use original resolution (whatever ff7.exe provides)

# preserve_aspect adds black borders as needed to preserve a 4:3 aspect ratio

window_size_x = 1280

window_size_y = 720

preserve_aspect = yes

fullscreen = yes

# mod directory

# subdirectroy of mods/ where textures will be loaded from

# does not affect the old external textures feature, those should still go in textures/

mod_path = none

Save and close the file. You can also tweak other settings in this file according to your preferences.

Step 3: Run the game

The final step is to run the game using an emulator that can handle disc switching. We recommend using ePSXe, which is a PlayStation emulator that can also run PC games. You can download it from this link. Extract the contents of the zip file to a folder of your choice, and run ePSXe.exe. You will need to configure some settings before you can play. Here are some steps to follow:

  • Go to Config > Wizard Guide and follow the instructions to set up your video, sound and controller plugins.

  • Go to Config > Bios and select scph1001.bin as your bios file.

  • Go to Config > Video and select Pete's OpenGL2 Driver 2.9 as your video plugin.

  • Go to Config > Sound and select ePSXe SPU core 2.0.0 as your sound plugin.

  • Go to Config > Game Pad > Port 1 > Pad 1 and configure your controller buttons.

  • Go to File > Run ISO and select FF7DISC1\FF7.exe as your ISO file.

  • Enjoy playing Final Fantasy VII PC Original (Unmodified) on Windows 10!

To switch discs, you can use the Open button on your emulator window or press F4 on your keyboard. Then, select File > Change Disc > ISO and choose the next disc file.
