    I didn't mean in a wrong way, but I actually think that yours is much better than my "delete" method. Having hard time with some text that was cut and blank conversation.

    Just leave a post here with your release and I'll be happy to post it on the first post with your name as the one who released it. :)

    Glad to see the Vita scene blowing up. Good luck.

    I wanted to play 1 and 2 but I can't seem to find them on Google Play anymore...

    I believe it was meant as a compliment to your method, and wanted you to continue to completion. :) It was not meant as a sarcastic attack that you forced your way in on the work or anything. Excited to play this, thank you all for your efforts!

    Chaos Rings I, II and Omega can be found on PSN :P
    Great to have them on the native Vita and not PSM.

    Awesome man!
    Is that script CR3 specific or can that be used in other games?
    If it were to work on other games, I'd like to test it out on Luminous Arc Infinity, seems noone is translating it :/

    Aw, sad.
    All right, no problem :)

    Also, good luck on the translation. I'm thinking I'll already buy CR3 from play-asia and have a dumped copy waiting for your translation <3


    Edit: Since the cart comes with the CR Trilogy (lame doesn't come with Omega too lol), you think the same approach would work for I and II (the grab-from-apk-english-dat)? So we would have all translated on same dump.
    I played 1 on iOS (still have it installed actually) but would be nice to have all 'playable' on Vita.

    I've converted all the English images to the correct format for reinsertion.
    The phone version uses PVRTC images while the Vita uses GXT, so I used PVRTexTool to decode them and then psp2gxt to reencode.
    Warning: Spoilers inside!
    It looks messed up because I didn't reimport the alpha channel images (still haven't made a reimporter, new files were 16 bytes larger than the originals), but I wanted to show it works.

    Perhaps this is also possible with other games. That said, what japanese-only Vita games are there that are available in english as phone apps?

    Thanks to you for doing this translation! I played all previous games from this great saga. My Vita is waiting for you to acomplish your hard work. I don't know how to help you 'cause I have no idea about hex editing and the whole thing. But you have all my support! Btw, sorry for my english, I'm from Argentina. "Ganbare!"

    HYPE! @zzzzzzzzzzz Thanks!

    BTW to the ones that have played the prequels ON VITA, it´s only touch controls or can those games be played with the pad/stick/physical buttons?

    Thanks in advance!
