When Changing Window colour Top Right doesn't change and changes Bottom Right instead.

Does this work with "converting" 7th Heaven saves to incorporate said saves to the Steam version? Is it possible to get the Steam achievements with 7th Heaven saves? Apologies if this would seem out of topic to this tool, but I'm curious if it's possible with this save editor.

There are only two kinds of FF7 Saves PC and PSX .The newer pc versions (2012 and steam) use a metadata.xml to track what saves are synced to the cloud this file is  updated when bc finds it in the path of where its saving . If you have not saved a game from the steam version you should do that before attempting to save to the steam folder.  You can also create a cloud save folder using the option in the file menu (you must know your userID or have a save folder for bc to detect it).   
Achievements can be unlocked with the achievement editor, but i see no reason a converted should not work for getting them while playing.

Additional Save format info : https://github.com/sithlord48/ff7tk/issues/51 and https://sourceforge.net/p/blackchocobo/wiki/FAQ/#saves

Is there a list of 'Main Progression' numbers and where they point to?

I get a "Failed to load file" when I try to load a .srm even though it's listed as a compatible format.

Is there any way to use *.srm files produced by RetroArch / PCSX ReARMed?
Should they be converted to a specific format instead?

Currently i don't have the progression values for that event but you can find a save in the save compilation

https://forums.qhimm.com/index.php?topic=8880.0

and try that for your progress value be sure to set your location accordingly also.

Hi! excelent work with the black chocobo, it really helps a lot. I have a question, I've put battle points in my actual save with the black chocobo but it doesn't work, I am doing something wrong? Thanks.

This is nice, now if there was a way to use this with the PS4 version as well, it would be awesome.
I know that this reply is a year later, but on a whim I tested using BC on the "ff7save" file exported from Advanced Mode of Save Wizard and it works perfectly. You just have to change the file type option to All Files to open the save. Edits carried over without issue and was able to import it back into my PS4 save. Registered just to give the news.

Hi, will you ever add support to current-gen console version savegames? (i.e. PS4/XB1/NSW)

Thanks in advance.

The switch version has been supported since it came out.

The only version not currently supported are XB1 and PS4..

XB1: I have never seen a save at all so it might be encrypted or it might just be a normal save if you have one get me a copy of it and i can tell you  Chances are its encryped and That will need be be Reverse Engineered before we can read or write to a save the XB1 will accept. (also would need to buy an xbox for testing since i don't own one)

PS4: The save is wrapped in a crypto blob.  Just like with the XB1 the encryption needs to be Reverse Engineered  before a save the PS4 will accept can be made.

Do u know about these encryption schemes ? Let me know.. Everything is in place in ff7tk to support these formats when more RE has been done on them. I would suspect just like PS3/PSP it will take a bit after in to the next gen before these schemes are known and i can support the saves correctly.

Battle points are reset anytime you enter the battle square so if you are adding BP make sure to set you save location to the Battle Square or they will be reset when you enter that field.

Turns out I forgot I tried turning on "SaveRAM compression" in RetroArch.
Turning it off before saving again made my .srm file readable.

Thanks for your time and effort with BlackChocobo! <3

Hey! Thanks for this great tool, it's really helpful. I just had one quick suggestion: do you think changing party members via the party tab could also update the values at 0xCAD, 0xCAE and 0xCAF? Those values determine which party members show up in fields, and it's annoying having to change it manually when testing cutscenes.

What file type are you getting those offsets from?

PC/Steam. Is it different in other versions?

EDIT: That's where it is in the savemap, if I wasn't clear.
