I've ripped the rom from my original copy of the game. I've got FF7 to work with no problems and I've got FF8 to work on my laptop, but just not on android.
Any ideas? Thanks in advance!

you must apply a patch for remove the original protection...check here:

Thanks! I finally worked out how to get the patch working. I'd tried it before, but the .exe wouldn't work on my 64bit PC, but I found another program that patched it and it's working!

I might finally finish this game now! Now all I gotta do is work out the settings to get the audio working correctly...

The next update will contain a fix that allows you to load protected games without patching them. All you need is to obtain the relevant .sbi file. If you go here and select your version of FFVIII there will be an option to download the SBI Subchannels at the top. Once you download that simply place it in the same folder as your FFVIII image and make sure it has exactly the same name, for example:
FFVIII (Disc 1) (E).bin
FFVIII (Disc 1) (E).cue
FFVIII (Disc 1) (E).sbi
Although you've fixed your issue it is something to keep in mind if you prefer not to find a patch for every protected game you own.

I am currently starting to play ff8 and I have a problem with openGL. Without it the game works properly but looks terrible and with it the game looks good but the graphics get all weird.

At some point I got it fixed by trying to change back to the gpu plugin and for some reason the good graphics stayd and the bugs in the graphics were gone??

Am I supposed to edit something in the .ini file? How do I do that?

Endless - lol! if you figured out how to make ff8 work, you've saved the day for us all - you tell uswhat you did :)

to your original question - what do you mean "the graphics get all weird"? DId you see my post a couple posts back which explained the settings I used? Also I had a link to a previous post which explianed some other issues.

garbacge on the sides of the screen can be fixed (for some people) by using '32-bits'.

did you really go back to the softgpu, or did you just change some / one of the opengl 'video' settings, from the 'video' menu?

I'll help you if I can - I'll take your save state and see if I can get through it. No promises though, I'm busy, and I don't know if your save state will work for me.

did you do a google search for ff8 and save state? maybe someone else has posted a save state a long time ago you can use? you would need to do it on your pc though if you use someone elses save state.

So far the game is working pretty smoothly (transitions and sound can be rough at time but not bad)

My major issue is i am unable to see any text in combat. So I cant see the action timers, or the text that allows me to see attack, Draw, Gf etc.

Thanks in advance

Had the same issue, turning Frameskip Off worked for me.

I'm having some sound issues still, the music isn't laggy (although in FMVs there are a few lags, but not ingame) but kinda swallows some soundeffects and parts of music. It still is ok, but knowing the the game for years now I also know the music very well and it would be cool if this worked.
