    Credit goes to Crosshex and Team Dasding for this amazing patch.

    This is a continuation of Dasding's UI translation patch for MHXX by Crosshex. However, Crosshex seems to be long gone, and the patch he created is now almost impossible to find.
    So I took it upon myself to re-release it, with the goal of finishing the few untranslated areas.

    Project Status:
    Almost everything in-game is translated. This includes NPC dialogue.
    To do:
    • Find and replace Crosshex's font with the one used in Dasding's original patch
    • Translate training quests
    • Find a way to translate monster cutscene titles (this may not be possible)
    • Re-work patch method to RomFS decompilation
    Installation:
    Required items:
    • A decrypted MHXX V1.4 update CIA with Dasding's V5 UI patch embedded.
    • The latest release of this patch.
    • The latest release of Beat.
    Install procedure:
    • Launch Beat from wherever you extracted it to.
    • Click on 'apply patch'.
    • Select the downloaded .bps file
    • Select the MHXX .cia
    • Specify the name and location of the new .cia to be created.
    • Sit back and relax as Beat builds your new .cia!
    FAQ
    • Why don't you support patching vanilla update .cia files?
    Vanilla updates are near impossible to find; I spent over two days looking for one. It makes more sense to create a patch for the most commonly available file.
    • When will you finish the translation?
    I have no idea. I have very limited knowledge of Japanese, and as such this will be quite a chore.
    • Is Luma3DS .Bps patching supported?
    Personally, I had no luck with this. So no.

    Woah. I was lurking around, and I stumbled upon that one ambitious thread where the guy claimed they were trying to translate everything in the game. Few years later and no release, I almost laughed. I dunno if they released some translation at some point, but right now there's nothing on the thread. And then I stumbled onto this thread, posted yesterday with no replies. Maybe people already lost interest in the game? Me on the other hand is very excited. I'm rooting for you! Going to try to make this work on mine, we'll see.

    Hello, I'm working on Russian translation of Monster Hunter XX.
    If you want to translate keyboard, you'll need to hex-edit "swkbd_JP_Japanese.70C56D5E" file from swkbd.arc (system -> swkbd -> message) from main game .cia file. Also you can edit keyboard layout there. I tried to inject keyboard from generations, but it didn't work. So I had to transform Japanese keyboard into Russian XD
    2660, 2670 - ok button text
    2B30 - cancel button text
    9632, 10944, 12144, 12160 - space button text
    3870, 4304, 3404 - backspace button text

    It's not difficult to edit the game font. It is stored in resident.arc (GUI -> 02_common -> font).
    font_festa.gfd - font file. It's not difficult to change symbols sizes with hex editor.
    font_festa_00_AM_NOMIP.tex - contains font texture. Kukki can open it and export/import png.

    DLC quests are stored in the save file. If you open save file in hex editor you'll see that there are .arc files there. Save .arc part into new file and open it with Karameru. Also you'll need utility to open and edit .gmd files.

    Let me know if you find how to translate monster cutscenes. I didn't find anything yet.

    If you've already installed an update CIA, you can go ahead and remove it, then re-install it once it is patched. The base game's install files don't need to be touched, and save data will not be affected.

    This is awesome! I tested it out on my phone and it works flawlessly. I'll be able to do some Guild HR on my lunch breaks now. :ha:

    Don't know if it was just my PC, but FYI for anybody when using Beat: patching the update CIA will throw an error message that it failed— install it anyways. It works just fine.

    Looking forward to the completion of this patch! Your efforts are much appreciated. :)

    Did you put .cia on the end of it? it makes it a file with no extension unless you do.

    Edit: Nevermind, it still doesn't make it a CIA correctly.
    2nd Edit: Yeah, nothing i've tried has made it work, every time i try to install it, it either is a broken cia file, or if i try remote install it says "cert failed." after i installed the 1.4 english v5 update, then re dumped it from my 3ds, i tried to patch it instead, but still no luck.
    3rd Edit: Trying to use luma3ds's bps patching doesn't work either, is there a way to get the files in a way that we can put into luma3ds's custom files folder? it'd be easier than trying to fiddle with a patch file that doesn't really want to work.

    the update file i have is decrypted, if i try to decrypt it myself with my 3ds, it says it's decrypted already. i'm using the update file from the UI Patch thread.
    (can't post hyperlinks yet, even in a quote as i haven't done much on this site)
    it always fails the patch, and gets cert failed when i try to install it. if we had access to the full files that get modded, we could patch them in ourselves using luma3ds's game patching. but other than that, we've got nothing.

    well, i found something, i have no idea if i'm allowed to share it here because it's a cia file, but it does have english text for dialogue. i installed it on my 3ds and i can read what they're saying now, so i know it worked.
    Edit: Hold on, the one i found is Crosshex's patch, the one that's almost impossible to find.
    Edit 2: i'm gonna put the link in, if it's not allowed, oh well, it was actually kinda easy to find since i found a youtube video that linked to a version up on mega. https://mega.nz/file/DOYHEKYB#fhGnXy1FeM7nEcqZ1ng8n0YnR3MtUZHjv0Lwy-q_N1U

    Generations/GU increased the size of text boxes, reverting the font will make many texts overflow. Dasding's font has the advantage of being able to display special characters, they specifically modified the font sheet to achieve that. However, I didn't have the skills to do that.
    It is possible, mikewii7 was able to do it.

    From your install instructions I gather that you're suggesting users to override the original Dasding's patch with mine. I would not recommend that, as there will be conflicts.

    I apologize for not being able to deliver a complete English patch, at the last 10% I hit many roadblocks from where I was unable to progress. It's unlikely that I'll return to XX to finish the patch, as GU emulation is at the point where I'm fine playing it on yuzu instead. Originally I didn't even intend to release the patch to the public.

    Can you share details about it? I'm working on Russian translation and this is the only thing I don't know how to translate.
    DLC quests are stored in save file (ext data) in .arc files, so I can translate them.

    Thank you so much for your patch, seeing cat's dialogue in battle is really good, the untranslated part is just the monster cutscene and DLC quests but it wasnt really needed.. cant say thank you enough for you and Dasding for the patch

    Wow, I'm honored that you seem to have created an account to post this.
    No apology is necessary; I'm just astounded at and very appreciative of the work you've done on XX as it is.

    I know this is asking a lot, but I'd appreciate a list of any files you altered within XX - this would let me build a patch tool much faster, since I wouldn't have to sort this out myself.

    I think this is technically not allowed since it includes the patch in addition to the translation. I'm not about to report you though.

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    I'm going to get in touch with him myself shortly. I'll let you know what he says.

    I contacted you on reddit. Can't PM you here due to low posts so I'll share it there.
