    From the makers of Dragon Quest XI Orchestral Overhaul Mod, we present Dragon Quest Builders Orchestral Overhaul Mod.

    Main goal of this mod is to provide the proper auditory experience that is deserving of this masterpiece of a game by applying all available orchestral variants of the songs present in the game, as composed by Koichi Sugiyama and performed by the Tokyo Metropolitan Symphony Orchestra.
    All necessary steps to obtain musical bliss will be detailed below.

    Hopefully it need not be said, but...
    PLEASE, follow this guide thoroughly as to avoid compatibility issues and so that your experience in using this mod is as frustration-free as possible.

    This video below will give you a glimpse of what you can expect from our mod:


    Installation:
    First, download our mod package from one of the links below which contain all the necessary files:

    Mirror 1 (MEGA): https://pastebin.com/YbmCfHLv
    Mirror 2 (GDrive): https://pastebin.com/Sb1zrhx5

    After downloading the mod, extract the contents of the archive with the mod to a folder of your own choice, it's compressed in 7z format which can be unpacked using 7zip or WinRAR, though we do recommend 7zip for best compatibility to avoid any potential issues.

    Next you'll want to make sure you're using the latest version of the "rePatch" plugin for Vita, you can get it below:
    https://github.com/dots-tb/rePatch-reDux0/releases

    Now all you will need to do is select the "rePatch" folder from this unpacked OOM archive and copy it to the root of your memory card - this is crucial.
    The patch is for the US version of the game (PCSE00912) but it will probably also work fine for the EU version (PCSB00981) if you rename the folder inside "rePatch" from PCSE00912 to PCSB00981.

    The only thing left for you at this point is to simply start the game and enjoy it with the Orchestral Overhaul Mod in all its restored glory!

    Closing Words:
    Our team REFUSES and will NOT accept any form of donation for this project, everyone on the team loves these games as much as you and believe that this is the absolute best way to experience one of the finest entries in the series.
    While assuming and hopeful that you already have, please support this series and the amazing music that has come about because of these games.

    If there are any issues with the contents of the mod, installation or there's any other issues you might have then please don't hesitate and write in the thread.
    Be warned that 3 of the tracks aren't orchestrated and remain synth, however this is simply because those tracks do not have any orchestral recordings available at all, they are the night town themes from the remakes of Dragon Quest III and IV so please do not report those as issues.
    Thank you for understanding.

    We also have a PS4 version of this mod available right now:

    As well as a Switch version also available right now:

    (like those "snes MSU-1" music packages)

    This is the second, music pack for a vita game if i'm not mistaken..............the first one was for Final Fantasy X to restore the music to the PS2 console for the vita. (which is good but the ps2 didn't sound that great).........big difference, awesome!

    This release has given me another reason to play DQB again. Any other project or OST replacement/enhancement mod you got planned?

    Builders 2 of course, though that will take some time as right now me and friend of mine are working on PS2 Classic Music Mod for Yakuza Kiwami 2.

    Personally I'd love to do the Heroes games and I know one of the other team members was potentially interested in it but only in far future, right now we have no plans on touching those games anytime soon.

    This one is fully finished and we haven't discovered any issues with it so there should be no need for a new version.
