    Since the ending credits of Okami were taken out of the NTSC-U version on the Wii, I would like to replace the files on the NTSC-J version with the ones from the NTSC-U (except for the staff roll of course) to end up with an English version on the Wii that still has the credits. All attempts thus far at doing this have resulted in a non-working image.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    if they were taken out of the ntscu version how are u going to put them in the J version if they arnt there? or are u just trying to swap the jap credits into the ntsc-u version?

    this makes no sence to me

    also the game may not be programed for them to play no matter how hard u try to add them in

    The Japanese version has the credits, he wishes to replace the files on the Japanese version with those on the US version with the hopes of making a version with the credits and in English. If the programming is the same between versions he probably has a fair shot at this working, but I'm not so sure on that one.

    Correct.

    Both versions have the same files except for 2 of them. The US version of the _data1.afs file contains the videos for the 'Secret Theater' (unlockable trailers and such for the game), while the JPN version has the staff roll video. The other file is wolves.fst in the JPN version vs. wolves_u.fst in the US. I assumed that since all other files are the same - I could just replace all but the _data1.afs file of the US into the JPN but unfortunately it doesn't work. I also tried replacing some of the US 'Secret Theater' videos with the JPN staff roll video which almost worked but it would freeze as soon as the vid started playing.

    I believe the problem is that the files which are the same in name are different in size and thus screws with the partition layout, but I have no clue as how to fix that.

    Is anyone able to help out on this? I assume it has to do with "fixing" the fst.bin file or something... which I have no idea how to do even after reading several posts here regarding it.

    Is posing links to fst.bin files allowed? Maybe someone who knows about this stuff could help me out if they could look at the fst.bin files.

    Edit: Oops. Sorry for the double post.

    Just wanted to bump your topic and keep it active.

    Maybe you should post this on elotrolado.net as they have some top notch people when it comes to making customs of various games. They seem to be a real friendly bunch too BUT....it's a Spanish site so get your google translator on [​IMG]
