    In case someone doesn't know what glitch it is, http://www.gengame.net/2013/04/there-is-a-major-glitch-in-pandoras-tower/

    Ok then let's make a glitchless version of Pandora's Tower USA.

    You'll need:
    -HBCd Wii (softmoded)
    -A copy of Pandora's Tower PAL (iso format) we have the original game, PAL version is exactly the same code, so we are not pirating nothing, I think
    -A copy of Pandora's Tower USA (iso format) use HBC app CleanRip to make the iso
    -Wiiscruber http://www.mediafire.com/?pzcf23xk277wdyu
    -A lot of patience =P


    We'll use the PAL version as base, so we need change the save ID for the NTSCU one, AND add the american staffroll. Both versions are exactly the same so don't worry.


    First we'll change the save ID:
    -http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S3HmHA3e7A8#t=53
    -The tutorial is for NSMBW, so don't use the same id from there
    -To save you some hassle, Pandora's Tower USA save id is "SX3E"
    -The game will create an USA save now!


    Second we'll extract the staffroll credits from the USA version:
    -Open WiiScrubber, load Pandora's Tower
    -Highlight "Partion: (DATA)", right click "Unencrypted Partition" -> "extract"
    -Save the extracted partition in some folder like "PT data US" for example


    Third we'll extract the game data from the PAL version:
    -Open WiiScrubber, load Pandora's Tower
    -Highlight "Partion: (DATA)", right click "Unencrypted Partition" -> "extract"
    -Save the extracted partition in some folder like "PT data PAL" for example


    Fourth we'll replace staffroll data files:
    -In the "PT data US" folder copy the folder "staffroll"
    -Paste and replace it in the "PT data PAL"


    Fiveth we'll extract the game code from the PAL version:
    -Open WiiScrubber, load Pandora's Tower PAL
    -Again under "Partition: (DATA)" extract the following files with right click:
    1 partition.bin
    2 boot.bin
    3 bi2.bin
    4 apploader.img
    5 main.dol
    -Save them in some folder like "PT sys" for example


    Sixth we'll build the new partition
    -Open partitionbuilder 1.1 (inside WiiScrubber folder), IT NEEDS TO BE 1.1, OTHERWISE IT WON'T WORK!
    -Click in the [...] button and load every system file stored in "PT sys" (in our example)
    -The last one is "Source File Directory", load the "PT data PAL" folder
    -Click build and wait...
    -It will create a new partition file, store it in some folder like "PT partition"


    Seventh we'll build the new iso
    -Open WiiScrubber again
    -Load Pandora's Tower PAL
    -Highlight "Partition: (DATA)", "Unencrypted Partition" -> "load"
    -Load the partition recently created, wait...
    -Done, play it with whatever USB Loader you prefer


    Now you have a glitchless Pandora's Tower USA version, with Xseed staffroll!


    Credits to sr_corsario to point me out a dumb proof youtube tutorial :P

    Note: I patched my version long ago, so probably some steps are not quite correct, please report if you have problems ;)

    Never mind, got it working. Unfortunately, I got the undub version, and I'm trying to find the un-modified PAL version.

    I know this is an old topic, however I am a little lost.
    I assume that you mean that to be inside "Window\Com", if not then I'm not sure where it would be.

    Why no use a PAL version from the get go?

    But... To make all this you need a PAL version of the gameware...

    Sorry, let me re-phrase. I had problems finding the PAL version that wasn't un-dubed.
    I also just wanted to play around and see if I could do it.

    Omg, I had no idea there was such a huge bug in the game! I didn't have any issues with it. (Though I did play with a modified undub patch bc I like Japanese voices :D It was confusing that they changed the names though hahaha)

    Thank you for the fix! I love this game, hope more people will give it a go :wub:
