Tales of Graces F for PS3 CFW 3.55 Guide and Repack Tools Out


Sponsored Links
102w ago - After over 60 pages of forum discussion, today I present a Tales of Graces F guide and repack tools for those interested in getting it running fully translated on PS3 Custom Firmware (CFW) 3.55, as follows:

What you will need:

  • JP release of the game (BLJS10093)
  • US release of the game (BLUS30903)
  • 15GB of free space recommended


  • quickbms (aluigi.altervista.org/quickbms, first link at the top)
  • unpack script cpk_ndc.bms (attached)
  • repack tools & fixed files - [Register or Login to view links] (~127MB)

Preparations:

  • Make a new empty folder somewhere, for example C:/talesfix
  • Extract the contents of gracesfix.zip to here.
  • You can place quickbms and the script anywhere, they don't have to be in this folder. Extract the zip that contains the bms file too.


  • Copy rootR.cpk from the japanese game (BLJS10093/PS3_GAME/USDIR) to here and rename it to rootR_JP.cpk
  • Copy map0R.cpk from the american release (BLUS30903/PS3_GAME/USDIR) to here and rename it to map0R_US.cpk
  • Copy map1R.cpk from the american release (BLUS30903/PS3_GAME/USDIR) to here and rename it to map1R_US.cpk


  • Make these new folders in your talesfix folder : jp_files, us_files, map0r_files, map1r_files
  • Your talesfix folder should now look like as on the attached picture

Unpacking:

  • open quickbms
  • select the script file (cpk_ndc.bms)
  • select the japanese rootR.cpk
  • select the jp_files folder


  • open quickbms
  • select the script file (cpk_ndc.bms)
  • select the american rootR.cpk
  • select the us_files folder


  • open quickbms
  • select the script file (cpk_ndc.bms)
  • select the american map0R.cpk
  • select the map0r_files folder


  • open quickbms
  • select the script file (cpk_ndc.bms)
  • select the american map1R.cpk
  • select the map1r_files folder

Repacking:

  • Start FIX_ROOTR.BAT
  • It will ask you for your preferred voices (jap/eng)
  • It will make a new file called rootR_fixed.cpk


  • Start FIX_MAP0R.BAT
  • It will make a new file called map0R_fixed.cpk


  • Start FIX_MAP1R.BAT
  • It will make a new file called map1R_fixed.cpk

Transfer:

  • Copy the japanese game to your PS3
  • Rename rootR_fixed.cpk to rootR.cpk and copy over the original
  • Rename map0R_fixed.cpk to map0R.cpk and copy over the original
  • Rename map1R_fixed.cpk to map1R.cpk and copy over the original
  • If you don't want japanese movies copy the american movie files (bink folder)
  • Copy the latest translated EBOOT over the original
  • Enjoy

Latest translated EBOOT:

  • English chest passwords*
  • Story Battles
  • How-to Battles
  • Title Abilities & Effects

This EBOOT has a lot more stuff translated.

This is by Oxinar over at piso. If anybody wanted or didn't know about it.

I just tried out and everything works fine with the original font too. The only thing I can think of if there is a very long english text (like, more than 4-5 lines) the game could not show it correctly. Probably the translators also had to keep these rules, so I hope there will be no problems. Until there is a complete eboot translation you should use the original fonts, then you can choose the one you like better

First, great work making the tools necessary to further hack Tales of Graces F. I had all but given up on playing a completed undub.

Now, you specify that the problem is there is Japanese text which cannot be displayed by the English font. Why is this a problem? Can you not use your tool to put in all the necessary English files and then the English font would display everything correctly?
