Sponsored Links
101w 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
  • Food Effects
  • Discoveries
  • Typo fixes ("cloak fix")
  • An important translation change of Bench EXP/SP/HP titles

*for English chest passwords be sure to use the latest chest fixed files (Aug.15)

AndreTrek are you still translating the rest of the menu or you are done? And is the whole menu in the eboot or some part of it only?

Thanks

Hey Andretrek I've been following this thread for a while. Have you made any headway? We're all rooting for you over in the blackcat forums... well at least those of us that own a PS3. Tales of Vesperia and Tales of Symphonia were among my favorite games of all time!

hi all, I was able to get the japanese version of the game and I have the eboot done by AndreTrek (thank you for the new eboot by the way), but I can't find the Map0R.cpk and Map1R.cpk from the usa version anywhere.

Can someone upload those files please?

...And here's a new eboot: [Register or Login to view links]

This one translates most of the skills you gain from mastering titles, not all, but most, and changes some of the translated item descriptions to their official localized descriptions.

I decided to make this after seeing the new topics you guys made, and also because i have access to the US version now, so i can just use the text from it.thanks! very helpful
