Game breaking bug, can't progress.
Currently at the part in Final Fantasy 7 on PC where you have to climb up the plate in Wall Market to get to Shinra HQ. I went to Aeris' mother and had all of the flashbacks. I talked to Barret and Marlene upstairs. I had the conversation that told me to go to Wall Market. I went to Wall Market and bought the Battery, but there is no kid that leads me to the caverns with AVERLS spraypainted on, and there is no pipe in there. I only have one save, so I can't revert to before I talk with Aeris' mother.

I've already started this game 3 times and I'm not about to restart again, so is there any fix for this?

Ah I see what's happening now. Notepad is changing some of the characters, so my hex editor isn't reading it correctly. Instead, just upload the save file itself (I thought it would be quicker to upload the raw values to pastebin, but that didn't work)
Uploaded the save00 file if it still doesn't format properly; https //ufile io/bp0mj

Yup, as expected, $GameMoment isn't set right. It's set to 248, which is after Cloud regroups with Tifa and Barret in Sector 6.
Just checking, you have gone back to Aeris's house for the flashback, correct?

Here's your fixed file:

But before overwriting your current file, just be 100% sure that you have played out the scenes in Elmyra's house......

I'm off to bed now, hope it works mate!

... apparently you dont know ff7 that well... So this game came out in the very early stages of 3d programming, before anyone really knew what they were doing....so if you look at the coding of FF7, youll see what looks like a frankenstein project, with many developers meshing many different styles, I.E. the mini games, the combat system. Since 3d programming was new at the time, the final project had so many bugs, I.E. item duplication bug, slot reel manipulation, items vanishing from the game if you have the max item/ materia....thus creating the most broken, and yet most loved final fantasy game in the series, for more info, youtube ff7 bugs, to see countless bugs and glitches

you can try Black chocobo save editor, to see if you can relocate your character or flag the game to go forward

That's basically what I did; I changed Game Moment to 257, which should have worked. Makou Reactor is an awesome tool that acts as a script editor/writer. It's how I knew what value to set Game Moment to.
Thanks alot! Had to fiddle around with it for a few minutes, but got the save file to work.
