    Has anyone been able to get FFVII (pc) to work on VMWare Fusion? In all honestly, I don't have access to my copy right now so I haven't tried, I'm just curious if I would encounter any issues. I'm running XP (SP3) in VMWare.

    FFVII is from like mid 90s?
    It should run in vmvare, but I guess you're better off installing win95 or 98

    It runs fine in XP, I've had it installed for years. I was just wondering if it worked with the VM video drivers.

    While I'm not able to test out FFVII, my understanding is that all of the new version of VM software handle up to DX 9 (not sure if they do 9.0c, though). I have Shaiya installed on a VMware Fusion 3.0 VM and it boots up and runs fine (but very slowly because of my Intel graphics) and it uses DX9. Since FFVII is pre-DX 9, it should run fine.
