    Hey all, I know how doomed this game has been since A0 dropped it, and that this is a long stretch.

    I know a group of people who are willing to translate the game and do whatever means necessary to bring this game to English. Our problem--we lack a skilled hacker and programmer, and PS2 Tales are quite notorious for their weird formats. Because of this, it's beyond our ability to hack the game and create a patch.

    We are looking for a starting point in the hacking side of things. Whether it's someone who has interest in doing it and taking up the task, or who can at least give us some starting advice. None of us are savvy when it comes to programming, so at this point, anything at all would be helpful!

    Our potential project members are passionate fans of Tales who love Destiny DC and other unlocalized Tales games, and have worked on various small scale translation projects for Tales in the past. We'd love to see this game make it to a Western audience, and are really hoping to start somewhere with it!

    Please reach out to us if you are interested!

    --

    Feb 15, 2021 update:

    We have commenced work on this project, and are no longer recruiting for it. We will show off progress when we are able to, and we are excited to make this a reality. Please stay tuned!

    I wouldn't have had to make this post if Absolute Zero was any help. They won't share their tools or any progress they've made on DC--and they've made their stance clear that they don't think Tales needs fan translations anymore. So we have no choice but to start from scratch.

    On a small update however, we may have at least had some luck with getting scenario text extracted, but are still very much troubleshooting things.

    I'm aware of them--but unfortunately they are also not viable options at the moment. I appreciate you trying to help out though. We're still figuring stuff out, but hopefully I can have a more concrete update on the status of things later.

    I'll keep that in mind for when we reach that point and talk to the leads about it!

    It's great to hear this has been picked up by someone. Sad that Omega Tempest can't help, they seemed very adamant about creating a translation for this, wonder what happened, I also noticed they removed the youtube videos they created of the translation for this game. I'm involved in game development and would be happy to help if theres anything I can do, let me know

    Hey, sorry for the late response (I read this but didn't realize I forgot to respond, sorry!)

    Unfortunately I'm not sure what happened with OmegaTempest. As for your offer, are you savvy with any kind of programming? We could use any kind of help trying to use the tools a Russian team provided for text extraction and re-insertation, and if anyone can make progress with those, it would be very welcome. As we get further along, we will be able to specify in what areas exactly we'll need more help. But for now, out first priority is finding someone who can help with the text.

    Can I ask what skills from your game development knowledge that you think might be able to help with hacking and or helping with the patch? We'd love to have more hands on board when it's time, and would definitely appreciate some knowledge in the field. I'll keep this in mind for the future.

    If you think you can help with ripping scripts and the re-insertation part, then feel free to DM me now.

    One question: Has anyone tried to reach out to BamCo in any capacity to tell them about the interest of the fans for a ToD remake translation? They're really listening to fans in the last few years and bringing quite a lot of stuff overseas. I think this is super worth it.

    I'm sure some people have. But I don't think 2d localizations are a high priority for them as of this moment. To my knowledge, they haven't brought an English version of any 2D game over since they moved to 3d games.

    Like raze2012 mentioned, there are definitely a lot of us who reach out to bamco when the opportunity arises to bring the 2D games over. However, they are a hard sell in this day and age... Unless a remaster happens, I don't see it happening. Even then, there's no guarantee.

    As far as progress, none to really update yet. We're still having people try various things with the tools to get the text properly. Once we pass this hurdle, I will be able to give an update and more clear answers on how things stand. Until then, I'm sorry there's not much to report. But we will try our best to make it a reality.

    I really hope the community can get this project going. I know there were some previous attempts but those were either left alone or canned. I really would love to play ToD DC because I really dont like the ps1/snes combat. The one from DC looks alot more appealing. Wish I could help somehow but I sadly lack any skills for those sorts things

    i am reaching out to the developers of the tool for some help. After extracting the DAT.BIN file from the actual ISO, i tried to unpack it using the commands as explained in the ReadMe but it is failing to open.

    **EDIT I'm dumb, making progress. Finally got them to unpack

    I made an account on this forum specifically because I found this thread Googling Tales of Destiny DC ISO's. I'm a programming major in college, and I'd love to try my hand at this because I love the series and I remembered the hype I had around Absolute Zero back in the day, as well as the Tales of Vesperia PS3 patch. I would love to learn how to use these tools posted. I may not be competent enough yet, but I'd love to participate in the multiple endeavors on this site.

    Complete newbie here just like the user from above. I am also a programming major like him/her and I'm also willing to contribute if we can have a collaboration for this project. I am, for my own assessment, not competent in doing low-level programming but I am willing to learn given I learn what direction I need to focus on.

    PS: Really love this game and I finished the PS1 version with friends a long time ago (plus tales of eternia) and I think its time I give back to the community for the fun I had with english-patched games I've played before.
