November 1, 2011 // 1:20 pm - Following up on our initial release, we (Tidusnake666, Tobster7, Alexmagno) have now finally been able to fix Disgaea 4 Translation dialogue bugs.

That means, that apart from some menu entries, the game is all in English text (we decided to exclude sound patching option, because it's still asynched, so you'll have Japanese voices - if you don't like them - turn them off )

Yeah, you've read it right, now everyone can enjoy story! Dialogues, items, skills, pretty much everything is translated!


0. Make a backup of your Disgaea 4 JAP game (BLJS-10095), and place it somewhere, preferably on the root of the drive (there's no spacebar nor special chars problems, but it's more convinient this way), i.e - "C:\BLJS10095"

1. Donwload patcher (Pre-beta version) , extract it somewhere and run D4Trans.exe.

2. Ensure "Translate EBOOT" is checeked and the default START.DAT patching method is checked ("1: Glyphicate all"). Later, if you'll have some troubles you can always repatch it.

3. CLick "START!" and choose location of your Disgaea 4 dump. Patcher has a lot of fool-proff functions, so it won't accidently patch the wrong version or mess your game

NOTE: backups will be created: "START.OLD" and "EBOOT.OLD" (If you choose to patch it). Please, do NOT delete them, it may be required in future, although you can always dump your game once again.

4. Wait till everything finishes, and you'll get "Done!" message. You can now copy your game back and play it partially in English!

4* If you want English cutscenes and Main Menu, you may overwrite your's Japanese "ANM.DAT", ANM_HI.DAT", "BG.DAT", "BU.DAT", "Dis3_0.dat" with US version equivalents (if you happen to also have an US version of the game)

0: DO NOT PATCH - No patching to START.DAT will be made;
1: Glyphicate all - Default and recommended option. Best if you're starting a new game. If you have already played alpha version of this patch and would like to play with existing save (continue playing), please note, that you *may* experience some bugs (untested), although we tried hard that you won't. If you see some, please, report and repatch to one of the options below.
2: Glyphicate only talk.dat - use it if you have troubles with options above, or you want to be on the completely safe side when continuing playing from the old saves. Apart from talk.dat, other files remain as they were in alpha version.
3: SJIS-patch talk.dat - Select this if modified fonts gives crashes or freezes. All chars from talk.dat will be substituted by SJIS equivalents. Apart from talk.dat, other files remain as they were in alpha version.
4: Use alpha-version files - Uses old good alpha version files with most of the bugs fixed. Use it if the above options give you constant crashes.

NOTE: If you haven't saw any changes after patching the game, please reboot PS3, start any BD-Game (to clear the game cache) till the main menu, exit and try to load Disgaea 4 again.

NOTE2: It's still WIP, if you know/want to help us, or just say "thanks!" please do so at, we'll be glad!

SPECIAL THANKS to Kazekeil (for his helping hand in translation), Bakaboy (for awesome D4Pack), leenfox and necroziel (for some file translations).


- None for now, except some portions of the menu not translated.

So I have the game working and I tried to use the patcher but it is still almost completely in jap. I tried to use the link above ( but it keeps bringing me to a site that says the internet vs hollywood.

I cannot download the patcher. I used a link someone had posted weeks ago with a patcher and it didn't translate much if anything. Is there a more recent patcher anywhere or am I missing something? Thanks in advance for any help.

It's done. I translated the battle menues and Geo block names. Please give it a try and give me some feedback.

How to use:

- Use our last patcher to patch the files as usual.
- Overwrite the old EBOOT.BIN with the new one.
- The Senate Moods can't be translated. Use the chart if you wish.

What is missing?

- Librarian, Ship Building and Map Editor (to much to translate or not useable)
- Some item and chara world messages
- Some error messages

I think this game is much more understandable now. Have fun and report problems.

Since Alex hasn't finished his translation I will upload my personal translation in the next days. It's missing the battle menues and the item world stuff at the time. I stopped working on it because Alex said he was working on it (again). I'll translate the rest of the most important stuff and post the eboot.bin. It's not 100% accurate but it's in english.

Any updates won't work, because they overwrite originally translated EBOOT.BIN, not to mention the updated game would require 3.60+ FW, so no, no updates.
