    Well, I imported Project Diva f from Japan, because I really wanted it as a cartridge and it only released digitally in the west.

    Since Vitamin is a thing now, would it be possible to take a dump of the English version and create an English patch for my PDf cartridge, similarly to how the Odin Sphere dump English patch was developed so quickly?

    I'd love to do the same with my copy of Project Diva X JP, which is downloaded digitally, so may be way easier to patch if I know what files I need, I assume. Cheerios.

    1) This was possible even before Vitamin

    2) Theoretically yes

    3) You need to figure out various things for that.

    4) If you have to ask perhaps you won't be able to do that

    I think you're right about number 4. Good thinking, but I'll do some research regardless.

    Start here: You can do translation patches for cartridges by using the patch folder of the vita filesystem.

    That much I knew, I just want to locate the files. I'll start digging soon
