    This is currently a placeholder topic. I’ve had it in my mind to make an undub for Arc Rise Fantasia since hearing about it earlier. Given the amount of threads I’ve seen pop up lately, I thought I’d put this up.

    I am in the process of making an undub for Arc Rise Fantasia. It should not be difficult - I have already identified all the audio files.


    The Undub will work with Riivolution. I am a co-creator of Riivolution.



    In the mean time, until I get this up or someone else posts something similar, here are some stats.


    -------------------------------------JP------------ENG----------

    # of Event Voices--------------12, 771--------7, 328---------
    Filesize of Voice Clips-----------676.3--------342.9 MB------


    In addition, nearly every ENG voice clip is smaller in filesize than the original JP equivalent. Lower quality encode, perhaps? Also - there are 11 NEW english voice clips, with no JP equivalent. They kind dropped the ball on that, huh?

    Yay! But I hope the European publisher (Rising Star Games, whom I love dearly) includes the Japanese audio. Do you also intend to fix some of the clunky sentences? Seriously, the English translation is really badly written.
    Who dropped the ball? If you mean the translators/publishers, surely it's just a case of something that can be said succinctly in Japanese, having to be made into two boxes of text (and 2 voice clips to accompany them) to say it in English. Do you count that as messing up in some way?
    I hope that I don't seem interrogatory, it's just that confused me.

    I support the idea of an undub, but it really isn't THAT necessary. If you want to get rid of the bad voice acting, just go to Options and choose Voice as silent.

    But, I hope you guys succeed!

    That could sound very dumb, but could the undub be made on the other side ?
    Using the japanese ISO to inject english text, instead of english ISO with JP voices ? (that way, no need to code the Skits voices back)

    I don't know if there's an easy way to extract and reinsert the text, I didn't see a text pack, that must be part of the main binary.

    That was just an idea thrown like that.
    Just wondering which one would be easier to accomplish.

    Wait is this going to be a patch or a tutorial on how to undubbed? I'm sorry for the noobish question.

    You mean like the Suikoden Teirkreis "undub" (that was a text insertion, because there were some music problems with the basic audio file swap)? It would be nice to make it so the "skits" are voiced again. I agree, if you wanted to do that, I think a text swap might be better.

    I've been working on making my own undub as well. I'm still near the beginning of the game, but so far it seems to be mostly in Japanese. I say "mostly", because sometimes I'll hear L'arc say "take that!' or "see ya!" during battle, though most of the battle dialogue, all of the movies and misc. dialogue is in Japanese. These are the files/directories I've replaced with those from the Japanese version:

    - /btl/btl_voice.afs
    - /event/voice/
    - /movies/
    - /minigame/voice/

    Does anyone know what could be causing the occasional English voice to pop up? I thought I got everything, but I guess not.

    edit: I read elsewhere that the US version of the game actually has 9 or so audio files that the Japanese version doesn't have, so it may not be possible to rectify this. At least everything that should be in Japanese is, though.

    Actually the text swap idea seems really smart ! It may lead to an undub superior US Release with Skits fully dubbed in japanese with US text !

    Quiet Interesting !

    Dude how did you get all those files back on the iso? I just keep messing up and it deletes everything. Or did you just replace each file one by one? b/c if you did, how long did it take?

    Why would you want that? The English voices are awful.

    To address some questions.

    There are some English voices in this game for which Japanese equivalents do not exist. This means your failed attempts at an undub still have English stuff because you didn’t axe them.

    There is very, very very many things in this game for which an English translation or voice clip was not provided. Going in reverse by applying the English text to the Japanese game is not really an option for this reason - also, that kind of defeats the point of using Riivolution for this.

    I figured it was something like that. Is there any way to get rid of those added voices?
