I almost finished Final Fantasy VII on a PSX emulator running on Ubuntu, but now I would like to play the last hours on the pc version, maybe with graphical and audio mods (non-MIDI music and characters in the map as during the fights).

Is that possible?

No, it isn't. The PSX emulator's save is one of two things:

  • A savestate - a dump of the emulated PS1's RAM.
  • A virtual memory card - A file representing a PS1 memory card.

Understandably, neither of these are readable by a PC game.

On top of that, even if it was possible to extract the game's save from a virtual memory card, there is absolutely no guarantee that the format for the PC version is the same. It's more likely that it was changed during the port.
