Dragon Quest Builders [BLJM61311] (v0.9 English patch) [PS3]

Dragon Quest Builders

This is just a Translation port from the assets of Vita version to the PS3 version which you could play on CFW PS3, ODE PS3, PS3 inject method and on RPS3 Emulator. Patch is still probably the final version, with super minor bugs. Okay this time I got the chance to finally played the game (for 6 times) and see all the bugs myself and hopefully fixed all of it. played and finished the game 6 times during testing and I hope everything all good. Special thanks to Zangetsu who convinced to continue porting at the game, since I’ve already drop the project a year ago (he’s also porting it to French) and Illynir who tested the patch from start to finish.

What’s Translated:
v0.7 (beta)
– Mostly all In-game menu, Images and dialogs stuffs
v0.9
– Fixes Font files
– Added Accent characters on text input
– Fixed untranslated images
– Fixed Boss image names
– Fixed Item/recipe/building description
– Fixed Tutorials
– Use English icons for Save’s
– Fixed Dialog (most of it anyways :p)
– Made a separate English script patch for both female/male characters
– Fixes maybe other stuffs I forgot to mention

What’s not translated:
– EULA on online mode, (EULA for the English version is too damn long)
– Game title on PARAM.SFO remain in japanese (well you could easily edit it)
– Maybe small stuffs I’ve over looked and didn’t noticed
– Trophies remain in Japanese, I don’t think it’s a good idea to mess with it.

Known minor Bugs:
– Some buttons on character input screen for PS3 inject since no eboot mods on Retail (CFW/ODE PS3 are fine, more info, bellow)
– Some workstation name are too long that they overshoot the text window, but still readable
– Skill name is too long that they overshoot the text window, but still readable

[Difference Between Patched and Unpatched EBOOT.BIN] 

DQB-EBOOT1
Patched EBOOT
DQB-EBOOT2
Unpatched EBOOT

That 3 buttons are the only difference, so its just optional to patch the eboot and you’re not missing much in the game.

Dragon Quest Heroes 2 [PCSG00820] (English incomplete beta) [Vita]

DQH2

Dunno if I could still finish this, so I’ll just leave this here so some may have a look at it and maybe continue to fix the ones I can’t or use this as reference.
pretty much most text and some images of the PC version is ported but a lot on in-game menu text are cut-off, does not fit or overshoot the text window. Dialog seems fine… well most of it anyways. Don’t know how to do eboot mods or disassemble the eboot to know which values to change.

Why vitamin 2.0? can’t find any copy of it whether maidump or the recent nonpdrm, so i’m forced to use this dump.

So yeah, this project is kinda dead now due to technical difficulties or my incompetence on Eboot disassembly / modding for the Vita. For those who are interested in continuing this project i still have some quickbms scripts I’ve made and some documentation on which files are which between the PC and vita version and its G1T image format. Might be helpful on creating better modding / editing tools.

Cant link game here so you just ask google or look on reddit 😉

Partial translation patch (0.5a) for Natsuiro High School – Seishun Hakusho [PS3]

494890_front

Here’s a partial dirty translation for Natsuiro High School (BLJS10273) for easy navigation of the game. Been hacking this game since 06/2015, I’ve probably finished most stuffs since mid 2016 aside from dialog and emails. A lot of stuff happened (life), like new projects (PS3/vita) and my cfw ps3 breaking down, and I’m not even a translator to properly translate the dialogs lols, which lead me to set this project aside for many months. Enter 2017 and I decided just to release this as an alpha so others might enjoy this text heavy game. Might pick up this project again if RPCS3 able to emulate this game.

Please do take note that I’m not that an expert in rom-hacking, I can’t read Japanese, and English is not my primary language so some (or many.. i hope not) things might be off or incorrect. But if you are knowledgeable with Japanese or English proofreading and want to correct things or continue and take over the translation, don’t hesitate to contact me, I really need help on this.

For bug reports, just search froid_san or happydance on google send me a PM on those forums you find.

What’s Translated:
Basically Most In-game menu stuffs and Images like
Main menu
Gallery
Freemode (aside Facial expressions)
Status Screen
Options
Tutorials
Save Data
Signage images
Fishing interface/item/description
Quest info/requirements
Items Name/Description

Whats not translated:
Dialog scripts (including choices)
Phone email’s
Maybe small stuffs I’ve over looked and didn’t noticed

Additional Notes:
This is compatible with ODE and CFW PS3
Delete old game data (if available) before running the patched game
Original base game npg10.cpk hash should be: 8aba1e77972bba7f64086782b69018b3
Patched game npg10.cpk hash should be: 4441c6f4980b26facf6b576eff5796ae

Toukiden 2 (v.08) English Patch [PSV]

585356_front

With the current progress on the PS vita scene with the release of a custom 3.65 cfw updater to make 3.61+ games to work. Some translation ports are no longer needed since a much better and official version of the game will now work on 3.65.

So my translation port of toukiden 2 and its patch links will now be removed to not confuse people.

That’s all, froid_san.
Here’s a English translation port patch for Toukiden 2 [PCSG00830] JPN which is compatible with Henkaku enabled consoles. Finally manage to get a hold of a US dump of Toukiden 2 and a 1.06 JPN Game update with the help of Ginkuji and kyu0911. With those files on hand I was able to make a much better translation port unlike with the v0.4c patch.

What’s Translated:
All stuffs

Bugs that needs fixing:
Some word warp and overshooting text problems on Mitama’s Bio and Inscription Texts
Maybe a few minor word warp and overshooting text problems on other parts that I’ve missed
Very long text exceeding 50 characters gets cut on movie subtitle (I think there’s a few of those)
Inscription Texts are bugged, it displays all text at your first read on the tablet.

What’s included:
English patch
1.06 game update
DLC’s

Original base game LINKDATA.BIN hash should be: ce188a3e4f2cdda54d091be120ead4f4
