    US versions up now but for future referance, looks like ya need both in /luma/titles/TITLEID/locales.txt + lumaLocalChanger beta here for newer games to fix region SD access,

    If you're using a nightly build of luma the file goes into a different location

    at the moment i looked on the titlekey site and the US vers was only up w/ a Dec titlekey, and atleast knowing in the meantime where these text files go for Nightly luma builds will still be usefull for down the road. (@Svaethier )

    This is true, it's good to learn and build up a working knowledge. Look into the undub too tho, it's full orchestral, I know its not a major selling point but worth a look.

    if it matters anything, i dont use the default luma at SD Root i have it in SD:/payloads/ and my path.txt set to load luma from there (i mainly use a Bootmanger instead of Chainloading)

    I just considered that OP was asking about DQ8 extdata & photo album (DCIM)'s relationship .....

    To be noticed that the photos snapped by DQ8 CAN'T be moved & renamed.
    Otherwise they cannot be recognized by DQ8.
    It seems to be available to modify DQ8 extdata to re-locate those photos with hex editor.
    But I don't know how to modify them.

    BTW, you can move the entire photo album to another machine if you move all the following things:
    - User save backed-up by SDF
    - Extdata backed-up by SDF
    - All DQ8 photos inside DCIM (with original folder & no renaming & no file location changing)
