    I got both isos for the game a japanese one and the usa one and i was trying to copy the text in the usa iso to the japanese one but whenever i do it and test the game it keeps popping up with the error like 81002100 or something is there a way to do this and have the iso working?

    Is there any reason to why you are doing this?

    Because English can possibly take up more lines than Japanese when translating, Atlus could've added more text boxes, etc to it so it wouldn't work at all.

    Just doing it for fun and experimenting with basic iso and rom hacking and I want to get better at this.

    I tried moving the japanese files to the usa iso and it doesn't work either, i'm a little confused why you can't switch music between the isos

    It depends on the actual structure and design of the game. Some games allow you to do a simple file swap, while others completely break when one byte is out of place.

    Because of how the game is coded, it can't handle files it wasn't meant to have.

    To me it sounds like there are files in there that you shouldn't be moving. Like if you're moving something with an unknown extension it could actually be containing a lot more files than you'd expect. My suggestion would be to find the scripts inside each game and try swapping those out.

    I decided to give this a shot and I think the problem is that you don't know which one was the voice file to begin with an once you locate that you can switch them with no problems. I didn't know which one so I usually get a blank screen and the game doesn't load.
