I have the same headerless MD5 checksum so you should be good to go! I think PowerPanda did not updated the game internal checksum (which has no effect on gameplay) so that's why there is a mismatch with what the emulator calculates but this doesn't necessarily mean the ROM was incorrectly patched (and a lot of working hacks throw a bad checksum in emulators because their author doesn't update the game checksum). The only way to be 100% sure there was no patching error would be for PowerPanda to provide a checksum for the patched ROM but to be fair I never heard of LIPS behaving incorrectly or causing errors.

Is there any content change early ingame? Maybe just changed names, options,... So I could guess that the patch worked before I have to play half of the game.

In the main menu, characters should have class names.

Yep, 3 things to check:

1. The default text background is the gray "stone" instead of the blue one
2. When you get control, Terra has the class "Sorceress" and Biggs/Wedge have "Soldier"
3. Even with that, you'll want to get into a battle. If your rom is v.1.1, the game will freeze as soon as you enter battle. If it doesn't freeze, then you patched the correct rom.

Also, if you patched it to a non-headered rom, the game just won't load.


Projects:
Divergent Paths: The 3 Scenarios (Completed) - a redo of the 3 scenarios in the original game that gives equal time to each group. Meant to be a basis for future mods.
FFVI: Divergent Paths (In Progress) - a hack built off of the 3 scenarios that changes other events in the same, such as making Leo permanently recruitable, bringing Banon's story closure, and adding 1 more secret character.

Thank you for playing all the way through! I'll definitely take a look. I'm sending a private message.

I reached crescent Island. The party changed to Terra, Leo and Strago after I entered the burning house. But I cant reach the door in the 2nd room of the burning house. Its almost as if there is an invisible wall next to the gap in the floor. Are there any known bugs?

I restarted the emulator. No bug anymore.

I'm still waiting on the private message where I requested a few of your files so I can troubleshoot. I replayed the final battle to make sure I could make it through still, and made a savestate after defeating Kefka so that you can at least see the ending cutscene. The savestate is for ZSNES.

Status update:

I have completed the Razing of Vector and added Vargas's special command switching. That is the LAST of the new content. From here on out, we're in final cleanup. I've got a list of about 10 things that range from 2 minutes to 2 hours apiece, and then I'll release the pre-final version (aka the "Final as long as nobody finds a bug" version). We're almost at the finish line!
