Trouble is brewing in the world of Soul Eater! Play as Maka Albarn, Black☆Star, and Death the Kid in Soul Eater: Monotone Princess for the Wii. Fully playable in English for the first time, interact with the students and staff of the DWMA, beat up enemies on missions, and uncover the truth behind a series of mysterious mass disappearances which threaten world peace.

The game features an all-new witch, a wizard, and a whole host of bloodthirsty killers based off of classic horror movie villains and historical figures. It also boasts an original story accompanied by animations done by Bones, the studio behind the Soul Eater anime.

Usage:
RIIVOLUTION METHOD (WII)
Riivolution is a Homebrew App for Wii which allows you to load files off of an external memory device without modifying the game disc.

You will need:
-A Wii with the Homebrew Channel installed (see here for instructions)
-The original retail disc of Monotone Princess
-An SD card

Method:
1) Insert your SD card into your computer
2) Download and install Riivolution on your Wii (see link for install instructions)
3) Unzip 'MonopriPatch' and copy the contents of the 'patch' subfolder onto the root of your SD card. NB: If done correctly, you should have two separate 'riivolution' folders on your SD card. One in the 'apps' subfolder, with the files downloaded from rvlution.net, and one on the root of your SD card, with "monopri.xml" copied from the patch
4) Eject your SD card and insert it, and the Monotone Princess disc, into your Wii
5) Run Riivolution on your Wii, make sure the translation patch is 'enabled', and launch the game



RIIVOLUTION METHOD (DOLPHIN)
Riivolution patching is also supported by Dolphin Developmental Version 5.0-15407 +. This method will allow you to play the patched game on PC without the need to install additional software, unlike the ISO Method below.

You will need:
-The latest version of Dolphin
-A copy of the original game in .iso or .wbfs format

Method:
1) Unzip 'MonopriPatch', and copy the contents of the 'patch' folder to {user dir}/Dolphin Emulator/Load/Riivolution
2) If this is your first-time using Dolphin, run it and double-click where prompted to set the game directory to the folder where your copy of the game is stored. If you can see other games in the list but not Monotone Princess, be sure to check your paths by going to Config > Paths.
3) Find 'ソウルイーターモノトーンプリンセス' in your games list and right click, then select "Start with Riivolution Patches...". If done correctly, Dolphin should automatically pick up the patch, but if not, you can also manually navigate to the 'monopri.xml' file by choosing "Open Riivolution XML..."
4) Make sure the 'Translation Patch' is enabled, and start the game!


ISO METHOD
This method will allow you to generate a patched .iso file, which can then be played with an Emulator like Dolphin or on the Wii (see Wii Guide for more).

You will need:
-The latest version of WIT
-A copy of the game in .iso format. If you have a .wbfs file, you can either redump the game or convert it with Wii Backup Manager

Method:
1) Download and install WIT
2) Unzip 'MonopriPatch'
3) Drag and drop your .iso file onto the 'patcher.bat' and wait for the process to complete. (It may take some time.)
4) You should now have a file called 'monopri_patched.iso' in the same location as the original .iso

Note: If you have previously played the original game in Dolphin, the game's title and banner image may still appear in Japanese. You can update this by right-clicking on the game in the file list, selecting 'Open Wii Save Folder', and deleting the 'banner.bin'. Then, in Dolphin, go to View > Purge Game List Cache. The banner image will now appear as a grey 'X', and will update after you open and save the game.

Tool:
If you’re interested in knowing more about the hacking specifics or translating the game into another language, the source code & compiled program covering both text and image extraction/repacking can be found on Github.

Very well done work to everyone involved in this translation.

... hold on a sec. I'm positively sure that at least two, if not all, members of the AGT Team remember me.

So I am trying this out using ISO method. I ran the command and it produced the ISO. However I tried it on Dolphin and the opening video and title screen are still Japanese. I am pretty sure I used the correct ISO on Dolphin. Is this one finicky in terms of the ISO (must be full wii ISO instead of scrubbed). Nevermind, did it again and it's okay now.
