This game needs support for mapper #163(?) in the emulator because of the unusual big size.

It needs support for mapper 163 because mapper 163 represents the original cartridge's PCB.  ;)

Nestopia runs the game just fine.
Anyway, really good work on this; I hope that further improvements and graphic hacks bring this even closer to a good port of FF VII for NES. :)

I can't download the patch, mediafire says the link is invalidĀ  :'(

Is it just for me, or has the file been removed?

I used the 93% complete patch, but I would like the latest...

By the way, the game runs fine on PSP if anyone's interested.

I just tried it and it worked fine. Maybe Mediafire was just bugging for a bit.

When I upload stuff, I use Sharebee, Rapidspread AND mediafire. Then it becomes extremely unlikely that all of these services will fail at once

FF7NES-CH2EN-98%.ips
I've slacked off the project for close to 2 months now, but I've had an unfinished improvement in my hands all along.  I'll give it to you today.  It's mostly an improvement on the dialog from the 7th Heaven scene, Kalm backstory exposition dialog, the Cloud&Tifa Lifestream scene, and pretty much the entire ending (I can't believe how much they had it screwed up).  I rearranged the final bosses to include Jenova (with new graphics), and hacked it so Cloud fights Sephiroth alone.  Bosses still have insane HP (I've never seen HP loading coded so complicated). 

To think there was a time when I though I could do the whole thing in 2 weeks!

Here are some savestates to help jump around the game.  I play 3 identical ROMs so I can use more states. 

Tip of the day: Cheat $6F62 to 00 to limit bosses to 255HP.

It runs fine on NesterJ.


Edit: Opps sorry my mistake it doesn't appear to work on NesterJ. I was thinking of another game, I'm not sure why I thought FF7 worked. Now I'm curious too how yuka got it to work.

Which version? There are two on that page.

I've already tried it on several NesterJ builds :/ Exactly which build you're using could b helpful

Hmm, are you planning on making the enemies a little weaker. I got frustrated with the first fight taking like 4 or 5 minutes.

I have it working on PSP with the following build:

NesterJ CN MAPPER
NesterJ PSP for CN by temryu

If i remember correctly I found it on a Chinese website...

And I'm on FW 5.00 M33-6.

Hope that helps!

I found NesterJ_PSP_for_CN_V0_3.rar http://www.mediafire.com/?bxdutsiqpiz
Is that it? Or is there a newer version? I'd of course prefer the latest.

If *anybody* out there knows Chinese and does PSP homebrew coding, it would be really nice to get this functionality back into the main branch of NesterJ

For a very linear game that has a lot of FAQs and Walkthroughs, it's disappointing that common RPG skills have eroded over time.  :-\

I didn't have internet access at that exact time, OK? And I wasn't (and still am not) asking for help on FFIV - just making conversation. cid fixed my airship and I've been flying around to different places in the underworld and I have found alot of stuff only none of it seems to advance the story. but it's no problem, I can just goto GameFAQs .... if I wasn't suddenly hooked on playing this new translation for FF7 :)

Samples of my earlier translations have already cropped up on YouTube (yay, I'm a celebrity!).  It's a good thing they don't go too far into the game; I don't know what's worse, being judged by an incomplete work, or being judged by the long time it's taking me to make the finished product.  That's all in my head though, in reality people just seem generally appreciative that it's there at all. 

My duty finally fulfilled to make the world a better place, I am free to guiltlessly welcome the sweet embrace of inevitable death.

New: It was a real headache, but my first speed patch is out.  It speeds up several battle animations so things like simple attacks don't feel so much like Knights of Round (if only they were that powerful though).  Now battles are almost as exciting as walking -- Which I've also made better!  Holding down B lets you walk twice as fast -- as long as the screen isn't scrolling (hey, better than nothing).  Happy hunting!

Awesome!  The speed patch is a great improvement.  Good job.

Speeding up scroll walking sounds like it would be really hard to pull off, so I won't cross my fingers on that one :)

The 99% patch is awesome!  Although I admit, being able to buy Ultima Weapon at the beginning of the game is a bit unbalanced  :).  One thing I did notice, selling weapons appears to be bugged.  It displays stuff you don't have, and if you push the left button to scroll from the first page to the last, the graphics on the shop screen freak out and then the game locks up.  Nothing a save state can't remedy though ;).
