August 14, 2011 // 11:29 am - Today clouduzz let us know of a PS3 Custom Firmware 3.55 and 3.41 fix for Record of Agarest War Zero on the PlayStation 3 entertainment system.

The PS3 CFW patch fixes were made a little over a month ago by ReDriGoX, REDragoon and shado1664, but haven't been reported on up to now here... that said, if anyone knows of other PlayStation 3 games on our PS3 3.60+ Games that can't be FIXED yet list by all means drop the RS/MU/etc links in our PS3 CFW & MFW Forum and we will mainpage your post.

Download: Record of Agarest War Zero PS3 3.55 / 3.41 CFW Patch Fix / Record of Agarest War Zero PS3 PKG / SFO File / AG05_SG_DATA.sec / AG05_SG_DATA.sec v1.02 / AG05_SG_DATA.sec v1.20J / ExSec Sec File Extractor / Record of Agarest War Zero PS3 Sec File Repacker SRC

To quote from ReDriGoX: I made a patch for this game, using the Japanese version. 90% of the game is in English, but USRDIR\SEC\AG05_SG_DATA.sec needed to be replaced from the JP version, because there are 3 additional files compared to the original JP release:, parts.co3 z_menu_ps3.co3

Maybe someone more experienced could fix this, and it would be perfect, for now the character names, skill names, and maybe some other things are in Japanese, but everything else (story, battle, movies, etc) are translated!

From saito1234: It is possible to extract the files from the .sec file with this tool (by asmodean) for example character names can be found here:

Dummy Alberti Arbol Valeria Vira-Lorr Winfield Ellis Elaine ... Sieghart Shernini Dana Tetora Niel ... etc "An abandoned sword, left to the#nmercy of the elements."... etc (from the English version)

Finally, from REDragoon: I wasn't too happy about the lack of translation on names, items and abilities so I replaced the content of the English files to that of the Japanese files.

Without going into much details this is the file you need, so far I have replaced names, items, abilities, world map data and most other essential stuffs that you need to play the game. Just put it in USRDIR/SEC. I might update it later when I encounter section of the game that arent translated and I think its important enough to warrant a translation.

Note: ITS STILL NOT 100% translated but everything you need is translated (for me at least). Hope it works for you.

Credits: ReDriGoX for the posting the 3.55 fix, saito1234 for alerting me to the exsec tool and me for bothering to do this.

No, sadly...

Hopefully DUPLEX will release an eboot fix, or someone else who knows how to do it, now that the keys are out!

I have the Japanese version of the game, I've uploaded the AG05_SG_DATA.sec for people who need it.

If you replace this everything works, but as others said, if you're doing this skill, item, and some things will be Japanese, there's a fix though. This is exactly how REDragoon fixed the Agarest Zero release, with his tool Record of Agarest War Zero PS3 Sec File Repacker SRC.

The problem is that it was uploaded to FileServe, which doesn't works anymore, so probably not much people has it, it was a tool written in Java, to repack the extracted .SEC file.

You can extract the files from .SEC with Asmodean's exsec tool

Someone with enough programming knowledge should be able to write a .SEC repacker, like REDragoon, I think he wrote it based on Asmodean's SEC Extractor (exsec) tool. (as it is really similiar, but instead of extracting it repacks the files...)

If someone is capable of doing this, it is possible to replace the files for item, weapon, accessory descriptions inside AG05_SG_DATA.sec, while using the Japanese version of the file, which works perfectly with the Japanese release, still with English translations. Just like with Agarest ZERO.

Can anybody help with this release? I have asked about it a little before but got no answer. There is a bug, which I assume is somehow related to the japanese eboot being used to start the game.

If you press triangle to inspect ANYTHING, books, skills, materials, shop items, and even when the inspection is triggered by the game, like after crafting something and you see the item created, you are stuck on the inspection page.

The game is not frozen, you can still scroll the page, if you are in an item shop you can still switch through the items sold there, you just can't leave the inspection page which is done by pressing X and/or O.

The only options you have is to press the PS button and quit the game to the PS3 menu (losing any unsaved action) or just doing a force reboot of the console. This would be fine if it was limited to inspecting items, but not being able to improve or create items because of this is too penalizing, not to mention, there might be times in the story when you get special item(s) triggering the inspection page, which will give us the same trouble.

This little stupid thing is making it impossible to play the whole game... Can anyone think of anything? Like anyone that would have the skills to edit the eboot to fix the button layout or something? (if that's possible).

Thanks a lot for the japanese eboot of Agarest 2.

Can anyone translate the first choices in the game? They are untranslated and I'm not sure what they are about. Like the three crystal you have to choose between (green, red and blue) I'm guessing they are asking to choose between some kind of skill affinity or something?

Edit: I have a problem with the agarest 2 fix.

The game works perfectly. But if you inspect any items, you can NOT go back. You are stuck on the inspect menu. You can scroll down the detail pages of the items you own, or the shopkeeper owns, but you can not go back in the menu, you are stuck there until you either reboot the PS3, or you press the menu button and quit the game. Is there a way to fix this?
