August 15, 2012 // 7:51 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)

I have a question regarding the JP based undub:

Is there no way to use the BLUS eboot to have he whole translation? If I remember correctly the japanese eboot's translation wasn't completed

Did the job but not for the Euro version (I don't post Euro content on public forum) You can get the TOGf JPN version DLC on Tales of Xillia Thread

Stompe the difference between Tales of Grace F and Tales of Xilia would be the story, for sure The graphic, obviously! The gameplay, probably, Even the System but we need to play it all to be able to check all those difference, isn't it ?

What's the difference between Tales of Grace F and Tales of Xilia? Only the story? or the entire gameplay mechanics?

DLC not appear in the game

I think, the problem comes from my BLES01617 file that does not exist, it says - INSTALL after I don't understand, I need to connect on PSN for download a DLC and create a good BLES folder ?

I couldn't decrypt the DLCs, but if someone manages to do it, we can fix the crashing.

Hello, I'm looking for DLC of Tales of Graces for EUR version (BLES01617).

My firmware is Rogero 4.40 v 1.03, I tried this tutorial:

1. Install pkg
2. install rap files with reactpsn (put exdata folder on the root of your external device and put rap files into this, make an aa account and start up reactpsn after you made/renamed this account)
3. Go into multiman or any other app you may have to FTP with and connect your PC to your PS3.
4. Go to your GAME folder on your PS3 and transfer the content from the BLJS10093 folder to your desktop.
5. Go to the BLUS30903 folder (if you have the US version) with your FTP client and go into this folder. Continue going in until you are inside the DLC folder.
6. Go into the DLC folder that is inside the BLJS10093 which is located on your desktop and move all of the content that is in this DLC folder into the 30903 DLC folder. (or whatever region your Tales of Graces F is)

Start the game up and it should check the DLC, if all goes well you have successfully installed the DLC.

NOTE: To use DLC in game, go to the items tab and scroll to the far right symbol. The little wifi signal symbol. (or click L1 once) You can activate your DLC from there.

NOTE 2: Some of this DLC may cause the game to freeze, make sure you save before using any of it. Some of the titles/costumes are not in the english version of the game that is in the Japanese version of the game and these I think are what causes the issues.

Happy gaming!

But that don't work Help pls

yes, but you have to make an undub using the JP version as a base
