    Might contribute some TL if I have time, working on a lot of subbing projects right now. But again that offer still stands on subbing the videos. Like I said i'm trusted status on nyaa.

    Hey - Just wanted to let everyone know we're not dead or anything. I ordered a Vita TV and a 4GB card for one of our translators so they can start pumping out story stuff. As you can imagine, real life tends to get in the way of things, but this project is definitely not dead or stalled. Will probably crank out a patch in the next few days. <3

    Thanks for the update AIDA!

    Was tinkering around with character creation today. It's pretty nice.

    Hey all! Sorry about the lack of updates on here, things have been *crazy* (and I couldn't log in, and couldn't reset my password. Fun times!) We've been hard at work since the last update, and a very good chunk of the game is translated. We've bought two members of our team Vita TVs and memory cards (A programmer and a translator), so progress has been going faster and faster!

    In fact, see for yourself: http://arks-layer.com/vita/Nova_ENPatch_11_03_2016_v073.zip

    Remember, install instructions are at http://arks-layer.com/nova.php

    Enjoy!

    EDIT: Here, have some screenshots!

    This is awesome stuff. I can't remember being excited for a translation like this since Valkyria chronicles 3.

    How do you access the vita TV file folders from your PC? Content manager, which I downloaded and set up, only lets me transfer stuff to the video, photos, music folders, but doesn't let me access the raw folders from my PC (like it does when I direct connect my psp to my PC).

    Thanks but it looks like I already screwed myself and updated to 3.63 so I can't use henkaku... it made me do that to use content manager which is what I thought would work. Well, guess I won't be playing this until I feel like buying another vita tv -.-

    Can you play this on the emulator? Really don't want to put out another bit of $$ if I can avoid it. Also I suggest there being a huge disclaimer on this post because lots of noobs like myself got straight to this post from Google without seeing the stickies about Henkaku.

    What emulator?
    Anyway I think there is a PC version of the game as well. You can try that.
    Edit - I just checked. Phantasy star Nova is Vita only sorry.

    So actually, I do own a regular Vita as well, just checked and it is still version 3.35. Can I update it just to 3.6 and if so how? Also is there any way I could set up the patch on the regular Vita and transfer this to the Vita TV via memory card or something?

    You can update to 3.60, check the stickies or search for a proper guide because I don't have the process offhand.
    So long as you don't apply the official download of the update and just apply the patch* it may work on a normal unit afterward**.

    * This won't matter soon, stuff has changed and the update is being built into the patch now.
    ** This is as of 3.61, 3.63 may have changed this but honestly I doubt it. Also, you'll need trickery or to reformat the card to re-use on 3.60 after using on 3.63.

    download the 3.60 update from my mega account here:
    PSP2UPDAT.PUP

    then download this xml here:
    psp2-updatelist.xml

    now if you have QCMA put the update and the xml in the PSV Updates folder then edit the xml and just change the uk to which region your from:
    au - Australian/New Zealand
    cn - China
    eu - Europe
    jp - Japan
    kr - Korea
    mx - Mexico
    ru - Russia
    sa - South Asia
    tw - Taiwan
    uk - United Kingdom
    us - United States

    once you have done that put the vita into flight mode then connect your vita to the pc and refresh QCMA and goto system update on your vita and choose update by connecting to a pc and make sure it says its gonna install firmware 3.60.
