what exactly is the dream catcher for?

original indiana dream catcher makes your dreaming stored in one the same place every night

all your nights all dreams be realised every night at the lego model close to it , makes dream lego vission

in that repeated dream is visible lego layout and TV playlists on raspberry film player

dreaming brain is catched to catcher immediately after asleep

New so I don’t know if a topic such as this is considered ok for this. But if you don’t mind I’ve got two questions. I just installed Retroarch for the first time. I intend to play Final Fantasy VI, IV and maybe VII on it after getting some advice that was the best way to play those two titles on my Win10 PC. So two questions…

  1. What is the best version of FFVI for a win10 PC (if it’s not on Retroarch I’d like to know that too). Where is it located, and what mods should I use for it (and their location). What Core should I use for it, and other settings?
  2. The same for FFIV.
  3. The same for FFVII

PS: Am I even asking the right questions? :thinking:

The GBA version has additional content, idk what’s the best core for emulating GBA (maybe mgba ?).

@CookieMuncher For FF7, you could get the PC version of Final Fantasy VII — and use this HD mod : https://captrobau.blogspot.com/2019/01/ff7-remako-hd-graphics-mod-beta-released.html

It’s the best way to play FF7 today! :wink:


The Nintendo DS versions of the older games run just fine upscaled on DeSmuME with RetroArch, and are my favorite versions of the games…

For FFVI, the SNES version with the Ted Woolsey Uncensored hack is really good. I think it beats playing the GBA version with all the sound and color restoration hacks you’d have to use, and the SNES version still has the higher resolution.

No, actually the best way to play FF7 on PC today is by using this mod :

But it’s in french and I don’t know if there is an english version… :confused:

Mostly depends on what you are looking for, afaik the additional dungeon is only available on the GBA version, and it can be a major criteria when deciding which version you want to play. Otherwise, yeah, the SNES version is probably a tad more beautiful, and hackers have done many wonders on this version.

Thanks you all. I tried Ted Woolsey Uncensored but couldn’t get it to run so I’ll have to research how to use Retroarch some more before I try again. Gonna try the Remako HD PC-mod for FFVII first, and have a look at Moddb to see if there could be any others.

But first I’m playing FFIV. Could not find a single mod for it on any version, but it’s my first time doing it and it’s an odyssey into FF history and themes. Was really surprised to find a title melody really close (or is it the same?) as in FFVII. Remember when I played the latter back when it was released for PC. There were nothing like it and I sat at the title-screen just listening for 10 minutes in awe of the expectations it evoked.

Ah well. I’ll be doing FFVI next. I hear it’s the uber-gem of the whole series, but never got around to it.
