When the PC version of “Final Fantasy VII” is played on newer operating systems like Windows Vista or Windows 7, the game has a tendency to freeze when the character Yuffie is in your party. This is because the game was originally designed for Windows 98. It can be fixed in a few seconds by running the game in compatibility mode for the older Microsoft operating system. Does this Spark an idea?
1. Right-click on the icon that you use to open “Final Fantasy VII” on your PC.
2. Click “Properties.”
3. Click “Compatibility.”
4. Check the box at the top of the “Compatibility” window.
5. Select “Windows 98” from the drop down menu. “Final Fantasy VII” for PC was originally designed to run on Windows 98 and gives you the least amount of problems if you run it in compatibility mode for this operating system. Click “Apply” to save your changes.
