    Can anybody give me a link to a .Dat patcher? I want to play tales of innocence but I can't find one.

    They included a README for a reason.

    Probably being lazy.
    You can use .dat files in XDeltaGUI.

    Just tell it to display all files rather than just .xdelta files.

    This just makes me wonder how many people actually READ the readme...(I'm happy that I do xD)

    I read the readme but not fully, I thought it was just what they did to the game. Guess I should have looked over it better

    I downloaded xdelta, the one on their website it says xdeltaUI, and i click open patch, but it won't find it, but it will in the source and output section. Can anyone help. This is my first time using this and I don't really know what i'm doing.

    For the patch of Tales of Innocene, just rename it from toi.dat to toi.xdelta, it works with me

    You don't need to rename anything to get the patch to work...

    Thanks for the tips, but i figured out why it didn't work. When I was looking for the patch I had it only looking for .xdelta files not all files,and since the patch is a .dat file it wouldn't find it.

    Yeah, they gave a link for Mac users to patch it on the Patch Release page.

    Also, to anyone still not not clear on this: The .dat file can just be renamed to .xdelta!! Then you can use it normally with an xdelta patcher.

    Sorry, I know most people know that... *sigh*

    It doesn't matter if it's .dat or .xdelta, all I get is:

    "bad magic number: not a valid delta"

    If you are using windows, then I suggest you to try using the patcher that is mentioned in the readme.

    Yes, using windows, but not using .net.

    (not ever..)

    Still:

    FINALLY got it patched.

    I had to recreate the original folders those guys used to make the patch file:

    Downloads\Nds Roms>xdelta decode toi.dat
    xdelta3: using default output filename: D : \ Visual Studio\toi\ToIeng.nds
    xdelta3: using default source filename: D : \ Visual Studio\toi\Data\Original\ToI.nds

    Lucky I HAVE a D : drive!!
