I'd like to see this finished. Love what you've done with Shinra Building.

Anything going on with this? Both this and the translation patch thread seem to have gone dead, but I bet there's still interest in seeing a completed, polished FF7 on the NES :)

This project also seems dead. Sad, I was looking forward to this. Oh well.

Well post the final patch that contains all the work you did as far as you got to the romhacking.net database then. Somebody else might wanna finish it up for ya but whether they will or not, it's still good to have.

Yeah, for real man. You got too far to not post it. I mean, if you decide you don't wanna work on it anymore that makes sense but not throwing away what you've already done

And if you finish this project it will be one of the biggest improvement hacks!

I altered the character pictures slightly. Do you like it ?

Well, Romhacking is actually a lengthy process and a hard one at that. Whoever is doing this project is probably taking his or her time doing it while still attending school, fulfilling jobs, or any other duty. :/
Who will quote me next?

Well, I admit I did tl;dr'd... :( Sorry. I just didn't really see any reason to say that this person is never going to continue this project just like that...

Still, I don't blame the person for giving up, if that's what happened. Romhacking is hard stuff.

Well there was the speed patch and I think a music patch and of course the 99% translation patch which I think included those

Mind putting them into the database. It will draw attention to the game.

Is that OK when I didn't write them?

I don't think so >_>. But I did see a patch submitted that wasn't by the person but just corrected. The original patch was a faulty. So I guess the answer is yes if you say it isn't yours and give credit.

The patch was for the Famicom or Nes and it was a translation.

Here's the 99% translation patch: https://sites.google.com/site/nerd42/FF7NES-CH2EN-99.ips?attredirects=0&d=1

I hate it when somebody goes AWOL on a project in such a stupid way that they don't even post the results as far as they got. That's just stupid. It's like, worse than not working on it at all.

danke

Actually, it's his work, and completely up to him if he wants to release it or not. Whether you find it "stupid" or not is your problem. If he has no urge to finish it due to the limitations of the NES (which is likely the case), then why release a partial patch?

Maybe he's AGAINST someone 'finishing' the upgrade using his work as a base, which could be why he hasn't released a partial patch?

Maybe he just doesn't want an unfinished project?

All in all, it's his work, his effort, his patch, and his decision. It's not really fair to pester him and try to "convince" him to release just because you want someone else to finish his work. There are more than enough tools and documents on this site for to start an upgrade patch of your own.
