    I'm not very fond of english dubbed games. Since some of you guys own the japanese rom, is there a possibilty you could make a patch to undub the english game? It would be very problematic to download the japanese release just to mkae an undub myself (200 mb).

    If you can't, then please just unpack the rom and upload the sound data to rapidshare and provide me with the link via PM.

    Thanks.

    By the time someone actually decides to make a patch (which is very much uneeded) You could have already downloaded the file and did it yourself. The English ROM didn't get released till maybe a hour ago give or take a few min and apparently you have the English version so I believe you can spare 3min-1hour to do this yourself.

    Yay that's good. I usually undub my games but Kingdom hearts voices don't really annoy me so I can just stick with it. Then again I neverp layed the Japanese version so I may go on youtube and see how the japanese actors sound.

    Any chance you are going to release it after you finished?
    Of course, you can take as long as you want. I will be playing with the English Dub then the Undub when I finished with the English one.

    Release what? A undub is just a matter of switching sound files for the most part.

    all voice far as I know... the voice acting is actually pretty good so far, though the subs don't match exactly [​IMG]

    Why would you want to undub this game in the first place? The emo voices sound fine for all the characters, and why would you want to change the classic disney characters voices (they sound like crap in japanese)?

    I mean the voices when you move the character and attack.
    The voices in the video are fully english dubbed.

    First tests:
    - sound_data.sdat is about 60 mb in both JAP and USA version. The difference is only some bytes.
    - I tried swap the sound_data.sdat with the JAP version and the game doesn't load a new game.
    - Movies are in .mods, i don't know if exist .mods editor.
    - I tested with a DSTT 1.17a02 and YSMENU. Also the game is hex edited for anti-piracy.

    ah hm... sounds like the same actor, but I don't have the japanese rom to compare...


    on a side note, what exactly is needed to replace sound files in a rom?

    ...

    Damn, and I just finished downloading the japanese rom. D:

    I'll try anyways.

    I bet it'll work using the 1.18 firmware for the original R4.

    If you're not a fan of dubbed games (and this was always slated for an English release, it has Disney characters for cripes sake...) just use the menu patch on the original Japanese patch and enjoy the game in all it's glory.

    Well, for one thing, I can understand a bit of Japanese (speaking wise), and what's better to learn how to Japanese than to listen to it (and communicate with other people). Unfortunately, I can't read Japanese, so I would only know bits an pieces in the story, but would not understand things like the items. I can read katakana, but it takes me awhile to translate to English.
    Another would be because playing a game in a different language seems to be like a new game to me, so it wouldn't feel like the same exact thing when I play it through the second time.

    EDIT - WTF!??! I am not Zerrix, I was signed in as Teny... How did this happen? I do not know a Zerrix.

    Yeah... this might seem like a double post, but it's not, I was somehow signed into another account...

    my undubbing effort was a success
    still testing the game though

    steps :
    1. hex edit your original rom (look for it urself [​IMG])
    2. unpack both roms (JP & US)
    3. copy both folder mv and snd to unpacked US rom
    4. go to mv folder in US rom, delete file 839_en.mods and rename 839.mods into 839_en.mods
    5. repack your rom
    6. have fun

    tested on edge 1.5
