    hi, i'm new here

    If anyone had played this game, our opinion would be the same; the game's cool, but the english voiceacting sucks till the point of trying to rip my ears off so the blood gushing out of my ears would block the voices. I'm pretty sure japanese voice would be much better.

    Anyhow... if anyone could make an undubed version of this game, or could tell me how to undub this game (I'm a complete noob at rom hack tho..), you would have my eternal thanks.

    If this was suppose to go somewhere else, i am srry for my stupidity.

    You can extract the audio data from the jp game and change it with the usa one with ds lazy.It works but it changes the game id and im not sure if there are problems at all

    Undubbed it using Dsbuff.

    Download both the Eng version, and the Jp version. Use the DSbuff, extract the sound files from the JP version, and replace the sound files in the Eng one.

    Repack, then you won't regret it.

    Isn't there an option in the game where you can turn off the voices?

    Sure, if you don't touch the other files besides the sound files.

    Is it that bad that you ripped your ears off? I think they are average, for english actors.

    ya u can unpack with dslaze or dsbuff. I think you need to replace the entire sound folder found in the data folder. I have no idea tho since i havent done it yet

    anyone know if u need to replace the videos too?

    If you are talking about the original American release of Luminous Arc, no the OP was in japanese.

    You're just supposed to replace the sound folder, and the sound folder only.

    You don't need to replace any videos. Like I said, when you unpack, click onto the Data folder, and there should be a "sound" folder. Replace the US one with the JP one, and repack the file. After that, you'll be playing it with English subs, but with JP voices.

    Yes, you can use Dslazy or DSbuff. It doesn't matter, since they both do the job fine.

    i think you only need to replace the voice folder. the other folders like MovieBGM and SE folder are quite the same, and yes the american release has a jap opening

    It would but for some games when you di it the game is desynced with the audio. For example Suikoden Tierkreis for some reason has extra files causing desync if you undub it with the method described.

    What's wrong with you guys!? I've heard MUCH worse voices than this... O_O They're actually not that bad!

    And I like how they kept the opening theme in Japanese [​IMG]
