ROM Hacks: Final Fantasy VII Advent Children RELEASED!
« on: November 16, 2013, 05:29:50 am »

Update By: Lugia2009

After 4 years the wait is over! Final Fantasy VII for the NES!

This project began in 2009 and picked up where Lindblum left off in 2008. After starting with a translated version of the game, this game has been altered little by little and is now ready to be released to the public!

No part of this game has been left untouched.  Music, enemies, events, graphics...there's just too many changes to list here.

Enjoy, everyone!

What is this? A FFVII demake for the NES, or a game containing the events of Advent Children in NES format? By the looks of the screenshots, it's the former. But why call it Advent Children?

Is there something wrong with the full patch? The patch labeled as just the English translation works just fine, while the Advent Children patch refuses to load in Nestopia while FCEU will load it but have garbage all over the title screen.

I'm not sure why this isn't working in Nestopia.  It works fine in FCEUX though.  It also works on FCEUX 2.2.0

This is a bootleg game made by Shenzhen Nanjing, they titled the game Final Fantasy VII Advent Children.  But it's a remake of the original PS1 game for the NES.

All right, thanks for clearing that up! I'll be trying this out.

Congratulations on finishing the hack!
Pokemon Dark Energy is a rom hack based on Pokemon Silver. Like most pokemon hacks, it retains the pokemon stylish gameplay but has plenty of elements from other RPGs as well. You'd better check it out!

You're right, FCEUX loads it fine, but older FCEU gets the garbage title screen and Nestopia refuses to load it. I wonder why, considering the regular English patch works fine in Nestopia.

Yes. In the readme.
But if you need it simplified.

1. Download the original Chinese FF7 ROM (Google the filename, is all we can say)
2. Download LunarIPS
3. Run it once and close to it associate it with IPS files
4. Double-click "Final Fantasy VII Advent Children (Finished Version).ips"
5. Find the FF7 ROM and click it.

Damn I just can't seem to get it working right.

What I'm using:
ROM: Final Fantasy VII (NJ063) (Ch).nes
Patch: Final Fantasy VII Advent Children (Finished Version)(Patch1)
Emulator: fceux 2.0

It's hanging on the Prelude music title screen for one, then when it starts the first battle I get into it glitches out the menu after the 1st attack and then crashes.

I believe you have an older version of the patch which is incorrect. They've since corrected the problem. Try re-downloading the patch: http://www.romhacking.net/hacks/1657/

After I defeated Palmer and got Cid in my party, I got a ship to take out on the water. I docked the ship on the sand and went into the Canyon village to heal my party and when I went back to the world map the ship was gone. Is this a game breaking glitch or is it supposed to disappear and I'm missing something? I've walked up and down the entire coastline and the ship is definitely gone and I'm trapped now with nothing to further advance the storyline.

Hmm...Has anyone else had this problem?

It's been a pleasure working with you, Lugia2009. I hope that I can contribute to any of your future projects.

It's been great working with you too, thank you so much for your help :)

For your information Lugia2009, whenever you load a saved game, the water animation will be glitched. This happens in the original Final Fantasy VII NES ROM.

Yeah, I've run into that problem as well.  Not sure why it's doing that though.
