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

Sponsored Links
122w 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)


  • 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


  • 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


  • 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


  • 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)

you guys might think what happened to the DLC translation since a while, well it's still ongoing... To be exact everything works fine, every DLC are fixed, the 4 first skits are translated and packed but we still need to translate the last skits before any release...

And the main problem is : We don't have any translator for doing the job. Need a translator that can translate JPN to ENG

Come on IRC channel (check my profile if you wanna get some info or take the job)

Dude...You guys did an AMAZING job. Very good work, very professional. I wish I kept up with my Japanese class to help you guys translate. Keep up the great work.

Same person, same content (US DLC included), same password as above for both : kenshindono


  • Install The US Complete DLC pack Fixed
  • Install EDATFIX pack from this thread
  • Play, report here & Enjoy.

If this works without problem a new pack will certainly be made along with translation of the skits (work ongoing)

Quoted for those who are looking for the files.

Hello, sorry for asking this, but could someone re-upload the DLC packs (fixed one) for Graces? All the links are dead now.

Thank you so much.

From what i've heard from kenshindono there was more skits that the japanese had for dlc. Supposedly the translator went awol/mia to do the rest of the skits.

I wonder if the were ever able to try to contact some fansub group to see if they would kindly use their translator to finish the project.
