August 15, 2012 // 5:51 am - 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 - www.mediafire.com/?6p2gc473359l62v (~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)

Is there any way to get the DLC pack working on the BLES version? On the ones I've found, the game only detects 4 DLC and only 2 are visible on the item menu. Thanks for the help.

It seems the old file attachments disappeared, and the links are broken, so I've reuploaded them here.

There is a small summary on page 90, the EU undub guide is on 88, US on 73, and JP is on 60. The additional files and tools (cpk_ndc.bms, quickbms, ...) are in the euro package.

Gotcha... and yeah, that has no file name in the link so I don't have anything to go by unfortunately.

Sorry, I don't know why I said first post... It's actually on page 60 @ http://www.ps4news.com/forums/ps3-cfw-mfw/fixing-tales-graces-f-ps3-cfw-3-55-a-122704-60.html#post423921. The 127MB patcher and files.

Yes, this thread died years ago, and I had done and used this back then, but since I lost the hard drive that held the patcher, I no longer have it. Could anyone you still has the repack tools and fixed files from the first post (which is on a dead MF link) PLEASE reupload it?
