I’m trying to get Special K to work with Final Fantasy VIII Remastered on a new OS with the same hardware but it’s just not working. The day before reinstalling the OS, I had set up Special K to work with FF8. I just downloaded the files, extracted them into the main directory, changed the dll to OpenGL32.dll and it worked. However, now, on a fresh OS, all it does when I hit PLAY is relaunch the FF8 launcher. As soon as I get rid of the files, the game boots.
I’ve tried a fresh reinstall of FF8R, updating Windows 10, checking Firewall & allowing the .exes through, tried turning off Windows Defender as I have no other anti-virus software and even disabled AMD’s overlay as well as Steam’s overlay. I even tried the full injector version, but it does the same thing too.
Any idea what could be the problem?
