Rune Factory Oceans PS3 Custom Firmware Fix Arrives


130w ago - Today PS3 News member ChronosAragami has suggested a quick and effective way to launch Rune Factory Ocean on PS3 3.55 Custom Firmware.

Those interested can simply do the following:

1. Grab JAP version dump of this game, we will use it as a base.
2. Replace "RFF2.bin" and "RFF2.dat" with US eqivalents
3. Replace japanese "Sounds" and Movies with US ones.
4. Enjoy game!

To quote: "Sorry my bad English, I am Brazilian hehe, I'll cut to the chase, I discovered that if you swap the files RFF2.bin RFF2.dat, from the American version to the Japanese version, the game going to be with the texts in English and Japanese audio.

That's it, just wanted to share with others who enjoy this game. Thank you for your attention.

Ops, the JAP audio its not working, if you want to hear the villagers voice, put all the Sounds from USA version in the JAP version."

PS: I do not have this game, whole instructions and all credits goes to ChronosAragami. Ask him for questions

Sorry if i ask, but why all of this? Just jap version works with 3.55?

In case, this thread would be awesome if the jap 3.55 version was linked for download, than using those new files, will be a perfect fix
What do you think?

Compilation of information I got reading this forum and other stuff:

1. Grab JAP version dump of this game, we will use it as a base.
2. Replace "RFF2.bin" and "RFF2.dat" with US equivalents - that's where the english texts are I guess, some texts jump out of the conversations some times because a whole english phrase is bigger than a japanese one, but it's totally readable!
3*. Replace japanese "Sounds" and Movies with US ones *if you want a game with english voices* (haven't tested this part actually)
3. Replace japanese "Sounds" with the megaupload ChronosAragami left on page 1 - he changed something in those files to make the japanese sound work, although there are some sentences in which the characters don't speak(I'm not even if they are actually meant to speak but it doesn't really bother me at all).
4. Replace STRM_BGM and STRM_BGM2 with US equivalents(sound folder) - if you just leave the japanese files, them you won't have a lot of sounds in your game since both files together are like 650mb while all the other sound files 350mb. Those two files don't have the sounds of characters speaking I think, just stuff like singing at some parts of the game and saying good morning when waking up(something like that), but mostly random sounds.

I left the japanese movies, since I didn't see much speaking on movies in the beginning of the game, haven't tested the game using the US movie files. I can't see sometimes the instructions on what button to use, but it's easy to figure it out.

Since we are using a japanese release, then X works as O and vice versa.
When putting the names, just press start for the default name or press X until no letters appear and then press square and just write the name, although only 1 letter at a time appears it's gonna work out(I think 6 is the max, but not sure).

Sometimes the calendar gets buggy, normally loading the game makes it right again or maybe just exiting the house, haven't tried to test everything. The game only works on external and select+x on multiman.

I think that's it.
PS: all credits goes to ChronosAragami.

I don't have any sound there is the sound of the forest and such but no background sound no charecter sounds when i press select and X i get the error message that the game cannot be transferred/copied to the directory any idea why??

This happens only when i copy anything besides the Rff files for example the sounds or movies when i try to start the game i get black screen. I have tried everything exept burning the game onto the dvd which i don't really know how. Any ideas why??
