ROM Hacking Discussion / Re: Translating DDS2 Famicom Rom - Help

Actually there's more than just that. I liked the original Revelations on PS1 over the PSP port for several reasons:

- The soundtrack. It's more than just the right music, but also the stylish ending to every song, and the different variations of the songs when in non-battle areas in dungeons.

- Sound effects. There are plenty of sound effects missing in the PSP remake and they changed the demon voices for the worse.

- The "slow" animations. Lots of people will probably disagree and they're tired of watching the animations, but I personally think the slow animations when casting spells using personas are really stylistic and the fast movement in PSP version feels rushed.

- Dungeons: Save points rarity in the original was better in my opinion. It made you play carefully at all times. Also it felt forced to have shops in dungeons in the PSP version. The game just doesn't feel as demonic when you have shops in dungeons and in PS1 version you had to prepare beforehand. I strongly preferred the way you move in the city streets in the PS1 version as well. They made it too easy in the psp remake.

The main reasons for wanting the Japanese PS1 version translated is the difficulty increase, Snow Queen quest and last but not least the original non-westernized characters.

I'm not sure if I understood what the problem is, but if you have a problem that has to do with AT3 files I might be of some help since I've successfully replaced .AT3 files in certain game on PSP.

Awesome! Even someone only thinking about it makes me feel better. Maybe someday it'll be done. No pressure at all, man. Just focus on your own stuff and if you'll ever get to translating it you'll have me following it all the way. I wish I could understand japanese. I'd be more than willing to help in these translations.

Could you consider the translation of the first Persona title on PS1? I'm talking about "Megami Ibunroku Persona: Be Your True Mind" (the japanese version).

I'm aware of that patch and have tried it myself. However, that mod is incomplete. Most of the music is really low quality due to P1 PS1 having longer soundtracks compared to the PSP remake. Also, the battle themes cut before they reach the end of the loop which really is a great negative for me. The battle theme I created myself isn't that long I'd have to make it low quality or make it cut early. In fact, I just got my mod working on Persona today thanks to the miracle tool called CDMage. My battle track definitely started with the battle, but I'm not getting it looped perfectly. I know I'd get it to loop perfectly with some Hex editing since my song is 2 secs shorter than the PSP battle theme (about 1 min 1 sec). The problem being I only know how to make it loop at 1 minute mark which cuts about 1 seconds from the song. If anyone here possesses the knowledge about editing Atrac3 sound files using hex editors I would greatly appreciate your help.


I've tried the same thing with UMDGen 4.00 but the output file always loses about 100Mb from the original for some reason. And it doesn't work in PPSSPP. I've also tried inserting bytes to the lesser size iso using hex editor to make it equal in size and still it doesn't work in the emulator. I really don't know what I should do. Any suggestions?

I know what you mean. I LOVE the original OST from the PS1 version. Too bad Revelations was dumbed down in many ways. I really hope one day someone offers the help to Gemini with translation of the original japanese PS1 version of the game. There are 5 tracks I'm implementing in place of the original PSP version: normal battle, boss battle, school theme, encounter theme and the "taken over by demons" theme which plays in lots of places on the PSP version including taken over school, world map, market etc. after the beginning of the game.

I'm sure there are people on this board who would know the solution to my problem. I've been checking internet and found out about ppf patching but i'm pretty much at beginner level in the whole romhacking business haha. So yeah, I've been trying to insert the bgm files in place of the original ones and recompile the whole package into iso i can run with ppsspp. I'm still here and it's never too late to help out, guys :)


Hello people. I'm getting right into the heart of the matter.

I hate the music in Persona 1 PSP version, so I created some of my own and converted it to Atrac3 format which the game uses. Then I used WinISO to extract my own files in place of the original ones and created new ISO. But the ISO i created doesn't work in PPSSPP for some reason. I've noticed the ISO i created is way smaller size than the original. Dunno why. I've been thinking that's the reason why it doesn't work.

Anyone here have expertise to help me out? I thank you in advance.
