I just wanted to say that I dicovered this project when de 90% patch came out and forgot about it hoping it would reach a full playable state. Now, thanks to your hard work and effort it has been done, so I'd like to express my grattitude.

I've read the whole thread searching for things I should know about the game, and I've discovered that it can actually be played on a PSP, so the chances I play and finish the game have greatly raised (I'm not a fan of computer gaming and the rom didn't work on the wii when I tried it with the 90% patch).

After that, I'd like to make a some of questions:

1.- What changed from 98% to 99%?
2.- Is it me or the 99% patch includes the speed patch?
3.- Known bugs for the 99% patch? I know about the shop bug, any other?
4.- Finally, what remains to be done for a 1.0 release?

I'll be willing to notify anything I encounter while playing the game, but I'm currently playing DQ3, so it might take some time to start playing.
You need an emulator that is compatible with the special Chinese mapper. And what do you mean you're not a fan of PC gaming? Can you name any of the great classic PC games from the '90s? Anybody who thinks they're not a fan of PC gaming should try out some of the really great titles like Descent, Broderbund Stunts, One Must Fall, Scorched Earth and the id software collection from Commander Keen to Quake 2. Then you can say whether you're a PC gaming fan or not. :)

EDIT: I've tried the 99% patch on the gba emulator on psp using the nes emulator for gba that was mentioned before.

Yes, a psp emulating a gba emulating a famicom, and it works at 100% speed! (well, I don't see any reason why it wouldn't).
Only problem is an anoying "this is only a demo" message that appears while playing...I can't find it in the rom to change it with spaces, it's a pitty since I have a gba cart (and a gba).

Yes, I already have psp nesterj's v3 with the memory maps needed (too bad the source changes aren't in the package). Also fceux latest version runs the game just fine.

With pc gaming i was referring to playing games on the computer, not the games itself. I've grown up playing computer games (monkey island, pop anybody?) but playing while being on a couch or laying in the bed feels better ^^

Someone please tell me where exactly is the map in the part where you need to show a snowboard and a map to the old guy for him to allow you to advance in the Icicle Inn area, cause I have checked all the walls in all the buildings like 50 times and I see no map anywhere which I find strange and I am not sure if its a glitch or what and I am using the 99% patch and the nes emulator VirtualNESex 0.85.OK update I already found out why I could not see the map in the wall and the reason was cause lol I didn't trigger a earlier famous event in the forgotten city which is very easy to miss, but the strange thing is that for what ever reason the game allows you to leave the forgotten city to Icicle Inn area and get the snow board from the kid without triggering that event.

I have converted the FF7NES-CH2EN-98%  to an GBA game using a modified version of PocketNES, it can be play on a portable system.

Is there any progress on the FF VII (NES) translation patch or is he stuck a 99%? :-\

I think we've been looking at expanding the game and changing the rules considerably rather than simply translating. Not sure whether they're really going to finish the direct translation without the other additions or not

Here is the infinite money cheat ready to go for NesterP on the PSP. Just save this as a .chj file in the cheats folder.
Quote
[0]
Name=Infinite Gold
0=Max,602E,FF
Default=0

[01]
Name=Infinite Gold
0=Max,602F,FF
Default=0

[02]
Name=Infinite Gold
0=Max,6030,FF
Default=0
Turn all three of them on. Don't know whether it might cause any unknown bugs but should enable people to get through the game alot faster cause you can buy all the most expensive armor right away.

I found the cheats here: http://www.gshi.org/?s=v2&sys=5&gid=8126

There are more but I don't know if they're worth bothering with.

You probably already know this but the game goes all screwy if you try to sell any of your items at the store for moneys. No trade-ins for you!

Yeah but this thread is where it originally came from, and it's a 99% patch. We never got a 100% patch.

I think the original guy might have lost interest, which is a real shame cause he was so close to being done! :(

BTW there's also a gameplay altering patch thread

Forgive me for posting in such an old thread, but what exactly has been left untranslated here? I'm pretty far into the game and haven't noticed any blank or garbled message boxes yet. Seeing as the author hasn't worked on this project for a while, and the game seems more or less complete, would it be okay for me to submit the current patch to the database?

That might be good. I think he left some stuff undone near the end of the game.

Also if you try to sell anything in any of the stores, you can get into some of those messed up states.

I'll try playing through the entire game first before submitting it.

I remember doing a lot of work to straighten out the dialog at the end, and the epilogue (with some Advent Children in there).  I don't know what version you're using if that's not in there.  I have no time to work on this anymore.
Confidence is the feeling you have before you understand the situation.
