The Tifa mugshot could be better. Her face looks strange comparred with the original mugshot of FF7. The Cloud Mugshot looks way more identical with the original.

Lugia2009

Chpexo gave me a new mugshot to use for Tifa.


Thanatos-Zero

Much better.
By the way, how far are you with the music? Any success to use the VRC6 data for your game?

syntax error

How about implementing the Active Time Battle system?
you just need a counter variable for everyone on the battlefield and increment it regularly
how much you add depends on his speed ,if the counter overflows,its turn time.

I believe a Chrono Trigger Chinese bootleg on the NES used this kind of battle system. You could borrow some of the code.

For what the sound engine is now, the music is done. From what I saw on the thread you opened, the mapper would have to be hacked, unfortunately I wouldn't know where to begin to make the necessary changes.

I have the Chrono Trigger bootleg, I could check it out and see what I can do.

I wouldn't mine an ATB, makes it sound cooler I'd play it ether way.

Really do love this. I'm just hoping that the enemy call-outs will be dealt with. Hate the unbalanced feel to the battles ¬_¬

Anyways I found a couple of glitches that you may/may not be aware of.

One is in Sector 7, when you talk to the person on the top left side of the map, then walk towards the top left house the message box of Barret saying
'C'mon Newcomer, follow me!' pops up.
Another thing is - not sure if its my emulator [NesterJ PSP] - but Palmer's Char and Portrait are both of Scarlet.

Other than that - keep up the good work guys :)

I'm not the only one who has FF7F on their PSP  :D sadly my cords broken so I can't play the new version on it, I remedy that by have NesDS for my Acekard.

I like playing it on the Wii, it's cool seeing it on a large screen and playing it using a controller.

Fixed

This one isn't a glitch. For some reason, the makers of this game decided to make Palmer and Scarlet into one character.


Thanks for letting me know, let me know if you find any more.

Chrono Trigger does use the ATB system, I looked, but I'm not sure about how to add the ATB system to Final Fantasy 7.


Thanatos-Zero

@Lugia2009
For the ATB you would need to study the coding of the battle system of FF4.
Thanks to the fact that many hacked this game, it shouldn't be so difficult to obtain the code. The only difficult problem might be for you how to change one battle system into the other.

Lugia2009

I believe I have an idea of where the code is for the battle system, but the trouble is that I don't understand how it works or how I could change it.

In this case, why don't you go and ask the more experienced hackers and programmers for advice?

Go to www.esper.net. From there click the "Chat now" on the right upside corner.
Write your nickname and then put in the channel window "#rom-hacking", without the quotations.
Once logged in, you should be in the space, where the elite resides.

Thanks, but it looks like I won't be able to do this, my internet's shut off. So the only time I can go online now is for a few minutes when I'm on break during class. :'(

Well that sucks, but this does give me some time to beat the current patch(And probably record a playthrough of it afterwords) and I just started playing FFIII(Nes).

So how's the hack progressing ?

No updates been in two weeks.
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!

Been busy in my house redecorating and painting the rooms. I got 22 new screens done since my last post, I'm going to post an updated picture when I get the next 10 done. Right now I have 166/256 screens done.

Is it possible with the current coding to make it so that Round Island isn't displayed in the world map although it would still be there?
Not like I cared that much but just saying because it isn't part of the world map in FF7.

I see, that explains.
Do your job and continue hacking while having time for it  :thumbsup:

You mean like place empty ocean on the picture of the world map, but in the game there is actually an island?

You got it! :thumbsup:
