    Hey, I just figured out how to build the cia. I slightly edited the instructions that Silrae posted in the OP.
    1. Get a CIA of Trio of Town's 1.1 update by either dumping your own copy with GodMode9 or other means
    2. Decrypt your CIA with GodMode9 or Batch CIA 3DS Decryptor
    3. Download Ctrtools and Makerom as well as Romfs Builder and Exinjector, place all files in the same place as your CIA
    4. Open Powershell by right-clicking the folder while holding shift, then enter these commands one by one:
    Code:
    .\ctrtool --contents=contents "<Name of CIA>".cia
    .\ctrtool -p --exefs=exefs.bin "<Name of biggest contents file>"
    .\ctrtool -t exefs --exefsdir=exefs --decompresscode exefs.bin
    .\ctrtool -p --romfs=romfs.bin "<Name of biggest contents file>"
    .\ctrtool -t romfs --romfsdir=romfs romfs.bin
    .\ctrtool -p --exheader=exheader.bin "<Name of biggest contents file>"
    .\ctrtool -p --logo=logo.bin "<Name of biggest contents file>"

    6. if you haven't already download TLE's patch files and extract the contents inside the "Patch Files" folder to the location of your romfs and CIA and overwrite
    7. If you are using or planning to use the Hamtaro & Cheburashka Restoration Patch go into the "Optional Patches" folder and move the files from the
    "Hamtaro Compatibility Patch" to your romfs folder and overwrite.
    **If you haven't already also take the files from the restoration patch and move them into your romfs folder and overwrite.
    8. If you want to use one of the optional patches, read the "README.txt" in your romfs folder and follow its instructions for whichever patch you want
    9. Open Romfs Builder, choose your romfs folder, and rebuild your romfs naming it "romfs.bin"
    10. Open your terminal again and enter these commands one by one:
    Code:
    .\makerom -f cxi -o tle_update.cxi -rsf SoSToT_update.rsf -target t -desc ecapp:3 -exheader exheader.bin -logo logo.bin -exefslogo -code exefs/code.bin -romfs romfs.bin -icon exefs/icon.bin
    .\exinjector -rom tle_update.cxi -exheader exheader.bin
    .\makerom -f cia -target t -content tle_update.cxi:0:0 -o tle_update.cia -minor 2 -ignoresign

    11. You now have a CIA of Trio of Town's 1.1 update with TLE!
    12. Install your TLE CIA into your 3ds with FBI or if you're using Citra navigate to File -> Install CIA and install your CIA (You'll have to get the base game on your own)

    If your cia file is called totupdate.cia then when using Powershell you would type .\ctrtool --contents=contents totupdate.cia
    Also, my biggest contents file was named contents.0000.00000002 so it probably will be for you too.

    @Silrae Thank you so much for making this patch, i can't wait to play it. I actually would like to try and do something like this for another harvest moon game, Tale of Two Towns 3D, because i love that game a lot. Since you've worked on a harvest moon game, could you recommend any tools that helped you with this? im running into issues where i can't find a file that seems to hold the game dialogue, everything is in a bin file, and the programs i currently have don't seem to help me that much; kuriimu can't even open many of the game files. Again, thank you so much for making this patch!

    Have you tried using HackingToolkit9DS to unpack the game file? I've only dabbled a bit in texture editing for Trio myself but I used either v9 or v12 to unpack the files so I could view/export them with Kuriimu's programs.

    I did actually! I used version 12, and many of the files are all .bin, though I could find some of the textures, like for the alpacas and the cows, and the portraits for the characters, that I could open in kuriimu. unfortunately, I don't need those. Everything else, kuriimu tells me that there's no plugin that supports opening the files.

    edit: so, using kuriimu, I looked through all the files again, and what's interesting is that, even though kuriimu says it supports harvest moon files (.bin and .papa), i still get an error saying none of the plugins support the files im trying to open, which are .bin files from harvest moon. I also can't seem to extract anything more from the files using karameru, so i'm at a loss.

    Try using v9, that should work.

    I'm not sure this still works. I heard a rumor that "that ISO" site got taken down and I could not find it. I can't figure out how to rebuild it or even dump it to begin with despite having the game and Godmode. I am just so confused. Any advice?
