  1. Thanks for the heads up! I should have responded earlier, but I took the liberty of adding your information to our issue board a couple weeks ago. The mentioned problems have been fixed and will be available in the next monthly update to our repo, which should be out any day now.
  2. Now that's very odd. The first half of those Live2D files should not have the names they have. Every patched file is supposed to have the same name as their Japanese copy, but it looks like their names got corrupted. If you take a look inside the "m" folder of the patch you downloaded, do the files look like the top half of the list, or the bottom? If they look like the top half, then I'd recommend re-downloading the patch and using a different program to unzip it. If I had to guess, something that interacted with the files, possibly the program you used to extract them, took issue with the Japanese text and changed all the names as a result.
  3. That's very odd. The story files are in the same folder as the supports and Skinship files, so if you have those, you should definitely have the rest. Just in case, I ran the patcher on a clean backup and the support files were copied from the patch without problems. Is it possible you have a layeredFS patch running that could override what's in the game? Did you uninstall the previous game completely before re-installing it? The error indicates the patcher was able to successfully extract and patch the game, but something happened during the rebuilding process. Unfortunately, it's a multi-step process and I'm not able to tell where things might've gone awry from this alone. I just built an updated version of the patcher that should catch errors during rebuild as they occur. If you could download the updated program here and try patching your game again, if something happens the error message will help me narrow down the possible causes.
  4. I'm glad you were able to get it to work! So far it's just those four DLCs, yeah. If/when we end up doing the bonus DLC, we'll just add them to the patch and the program will pick them right up.
  5. Sorry about that, the chapter summaries keep getting bumped down the to-do list. But now that we're over the mountain of first-gen supports, we do plan to focus a lot more on the miscellaneous text like My Castle dialogue and system text. Since it's such a small file, I'm guessing we could get the summaries done by the next monthly commit.
  6. Thanks for the heads up! It was a mistake on my end. I just added the file to the repo and updated the release zip to include Joker x Felicia. If anyone already downloaded the release, you'll can simply download the support here and place the file in the "m" folder of "rom". Of course, if you'd like you can also re-download the zip and it'll be in there. Hopefully that's the only one missing, but we'll double check just in case!
  7. Sorry for the wait, but the release is now live and ready to download!
  8. Happy anniversary! Today marks the second anniversary of Fire Emblem If's Japanese release, as well as the creation of the original Team If. To celebrate, release version 4.2 has been uploaded to our GitHub repo and is ready to download! You can find the link right here and in the OP: https://github.com/TeamIf/FireEmblemIf-FanTranslation/releases/tag/v4.2 Release Notes: All first generation supports (non-children characters) have been translated and edited Subtitles for all cutscenes! Invisible Kingdom dialogue completely re-edited to sound natural and consistent Bundled with our new patcher that simplifies DLC patching Our old patching program was starting to feel really outdated, so we built a new one with some new features. It requires a CIA backup of either If or Fates, and includes the ability to patch individual pieces of content within one DLC backup CIA. And if you provide the patcher with a localized Fates copy (NA/EU), the program will automatically sort the files based on the game's region, no re-organizing necessary. Unfortunately, if you'd like to patch a .3ds backup, you'll have to stick with the patcher bundled with our previous releases. This patch is still completely compatible, although you'll need to use another tool to patch your DLC. Credit goes to @Kyonko802 for revising Invisible Kingdom for this release. IK hadn't gotten much editing love up until now, unfortunately, so the text was filled with errors, inconsistencies, unnatural-sounding dialogue, and occasionally game-breaking bugs. With this revision, all of those issues should be resolved for good. Every first generation support has now been translated and edited; they should all now be at a stage where they're completely readable and easy to understand. It should be noted, however, that the files were worked on by a handful of people, so there are occasions where a character might speak a bit differently from support to support. One of the first things we plan to do is go back and revise a lot of the supports to achieve some consistency in how the characters behave throughout their conversations. That said, the issue shouldn't be too noticeable, and the supports in their current condition are absolutely ready to use. As always, if you notice any issues, errors, inconsistencies, or anything else that seems off, please leave us a ticket on our issue board and we'll do what we can to resolve them: https://github.com/TeamIf/FireEmblemIf-FanTranslation/issues Thank you guys so much for sticking with us for so long! We seriously couldn't do it without your support. We're always looking for an extra hand, so if you know Japanese or have a very firm grasp of the English language, shoot me a PM! Hope you guys like the release, and here's to an amazing two years! EDIT: The release is now live! Just follow the link above.
  9. Yep! If you find anything that might be a bug, mis-translation, or editing issue, that's the place to post it. We check both here and the board, but it's much easier for us to track the status of bugs from the issue board. As for Saizou x Orochi, yeah, that's definitely going to need a second pass, at least. We'll be sure to fix it up before the next commit/release. Thanks for the heads up!
  10. Sorry for the double post, but I have a couple new things to share! First of all, we've gone ahead and created a new patcher program to replace the one bundled with our previous releases. While the old patcher required a .3ds backup and Xorpads, the new patcher only requires a decrypted CIA file. It's capable of patching DLC files in CIA format, as well. For those looking to patch their localized copies of Fire Emblem Fates, the patcher will reorganize the patched files to match that region's folder structure. You'll no longer have to mess with the patch's files to make it compatible with your version of the game. This isn't yet true for the DLC, though; I haven't had the opportunity to test this program on out-of-region DLC yet. Download link: https://github.com/ShadySheikah/IfPatcher/releases We also added a dlc folder to the patch's repository, which is necessary for the patcher to work with DLC. If you plan on using the new patcher right away, make sure you pull the latest content from the repo. I tested this as much as I could, but there's a good chance I missed some bugs. If you run into any issues, please open an issue on the patcher's issue board. Note that this is separate from the translation's issue board. We won't be officially supporting the patcher until we bundle it with the patch in our next release, and any issues found will be fixed by then. Which leads me to the next thing I wanted to share. Our next release will be on June 25! The 25th marks the two year anniversary of Fire Emblem If's release and the beginning of Team If, so we're planning on making this release a worthwhile one. Along with what's already been done, here's what it'll include: All first generation supports translated and edited Invisible Kingdom re-revised to fix errors, pacing, and overall readability Thanks to @SciresM, we've been able to get cutscene subtitles working! At least one story path will have subtitles from beginning to end, but we're aiming for all three Fixes for a very large portion of reported issues (many of which are already on the repo) The new patcher mentioned above will be bundled with the release After this upcoming release, we'll finally be done with the first generation of character supports, leaving only the child supports to translate. But we've still got some work to do on other fronts. We've found a way to get Skinship confessions to display subtitles like they do in Fates (again, huge thanks to @SciresM), but that's still being worked on and won't be ready until later. Before all is said and done, we'll most likely also give the Hoshido and Nohr story routes one more revision pass to keep them consistent with the changes made in Invisible Kingdom. But the good news is that we're getting ever closer to a full translation of the main game. Until then, look forward the 25th of June!
  11. We're using the issue board on our GitHub repo to track errors and other mistakes. If you see something that needs fixing, just open up an issue there and we'll get right on it.
  12. You can, but it's not the most straightforward process. You'll need to use this program to convert all the files in the "m" folder into text files, do a find/replace on each name in every file where their name is mentioned (making sure to check for case, since their names show up in-code as all-caps), convert the text files back into their original format, and re-patch.
  13. No problem, glad you're enjoying it so far! Your first question actually ties into the second. The Japanese Fire Emblem If has an update patch available, but that patch is only downloadable on a 3DS with access to the Japanese eShop. Unfortunately, to my knowledge, 3DSs are only able to access the eShop for their designated region. That means while your 3DS might notify you of updates or new DLC for installed Japanese games, there's no way to actually download them using Nintendo's updater or eShop software. You'd have to use your backup files to update the game manually. It sounds like your DLC hasn't been patched with our fan translation. Chapter 7 is the first chapter in Invisible Kingdom that reads from the downloaded content rather than the base game. Right now, our instructions only cover patching the first game, but we're working on providing instructions on patching the DLC files in the next few days, as well. Ultimately, we hope to improve our patcher to automate the process in the future. Sorry about the confusion.
  14. Hey guys! Sorry it's been a while. Progress has been rather slow-moving for the last few weeks, due largely to many of us gearing up for finals. Things should pick back up in another week or so, and we'll have a lot more to share then. Unfortunately, we don't have a list like that at the moment, but I can whip up a simplified copy of the chart we use to track supports. All male/male and female/female first generation supports are complete, so it only covers the first gen male/female: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1P3GhQ6NOK1o0wk-s9ZhnM2FMEpSOMAjKiErKaJ1JFKk/edit?usp=sharing If you're referring to the chapter names on the save files, those should correct themselves after saving again. You can use NTR to get the DLC working (we have a guide for that here), but unfortunately, you won't be able to apply the patch with it. You'll need to find a way to patch the DLC files themselves. Regarding your second point, we haven't translated any DLC aside from the story paths quite yet. We're waiting until we're closer to completing the main game's content before focusing on anything else. Sorry about that! We can't take credit for this, actually! We haven't done anything regarding DLC compatibility with HANS, so there must have been an update to HANS itself or something. Still, I'm glad to hear it's working for you. When you apply this patch to the Japanese versions of the game, all lines during the Skinship minigame will be translated. However, since the confession scenes don't have subtitles, we haven't been able to provide translations for them yet. That will change at some point in the future, though. I did mention a few posts up that applying our patch to a localized version of the game wouldn't bring back Skinship, and this is because the minigame has been stripped from these versions entirely. However, the only effect our patch has on Japanese Skinship is the language shown in the subtitles.
  15. Our patch doesn't contain any audio files, so none of the voices would be affected. I'm sure using the undub patch in the other thread wouldn't cause a problem, though.
  16. Our patch files can be used on the US Special Edition copy. To make them compatible, however, you will need to tweak the file structure a bit. The above picture is a comparison between the m folder in the Hoshido/Birthright versions of If and in Fates, respectively. Whereas If simply places most of its files inside the m folder itself, the Fates localization places them inside a folder named "@E". All the loose files you see on the left are contained in "@E". The contents of the "A" folder is set up in the same manner: While If simply fills the A folder with files, Fates has another folder inside A also called "@E", where all the files are contained. Our patch follows If's file structure, with no extra folders. In order to make it compatible with the US special edition, you will need to download our patch, make the "@E" folders yourself, and place the files inside them. You'll probably find a B and C folder, as well; these are for the other story paths and follow the same structure as A. What I meant in the second quote is that our patch doesn't do anything to the US or EU versions aside from replacing the banner, the font, most of the text, and some interface images. Our patch files contain nothing that would alter the code of the game itself, so those looking for restored content will not get what they want from our translation patch. You can take a look at what our patch does contain on our repo. Something I should have mentioned before, however, is that the patcher program bundled with our releases, in its current state, is only compatible with the Japanese versions of the game. We're working on expanding the capabilities of the program, but for now, if you'd like to patch a US version, you'll have to find another way to extract and build your own CIA backups. There's plenty of information out there on how to do it; this might lead you in the right direction if you decide to try it yourself.
  17. Yeah, sorry about that. We're working on fixing a couple bugs from the issues board, so the next commit should come in the next day or two.
  18. There was a content restoration patch in the works the by crew that was working on this patch before us. The project is no longer being worked on, however, and I don't think they ever managed to restore the Skinship mode. You can find the thread on that project here.
  19. Technically, this patch can be used with any region with a bit of file reorganizing. I answered a similar question regarding the European version a couple posts up; the only difference with the NA game is that you'll name your additional folder "@E" instead of "@U". However, using our patch on a non-JP copy of the game will only change the banner (that rotating model on the home menu), font and in-game text/interface. It won't change what you see in cutscene or confession subtitles, and it won't change the voice acting. It won't restore any content cut from the localization. Also, anything that hasn't yet been translated by us, such as some supports and My Castle lines, will feature the localized text instead.
  20. Hey guys, sorry for the hiatus. Long month. Thanks! I'll add these to our issues board and make sure they get fixed. Sorry, couldn't give you an ETA at this point, but they'll be getting a bump in priority once the rest of the first generation supports are translated. It should definitely be possible to apply our patch to the European edition. The biggest difference would be in how the localizations organize their text files. In the original JP version, there was no need to separate the files by language, but the US and EU versions had to separate their files based on region and language. The second link you posted is a great starting point for making the few changes necessary to make our patch compatible. The only thing you'll need to change is how the files in the "m" folder are organized. You'll need to create a folder called "@U" inside the m, A, B, and C folders, and move all the files into those. You should be able to patch your game, then. If you're asking if we can dub this ourselves, then absolutely not. If you're talking about the Fates dub, it's possible, but we don't have anything resembling a patch assembled. If you're interested in giving it a shot, I'd recommend starting by looking at how the content restoration's undub patch is put together. Just grab those same files from your backup of Fates and place them on top of the files in your copy of If. Keep in mind the advice I gave above, however, as it applies here, as well. While the undub patch has a folder called "@E", the JP version has no such thing. Simply move the files out of those folders and delete them. I couldn't tell you for sure, but I can't imagine the mod breaking much. If you give it a shot, let me know how it goes! We don't really have a script or something you could use as a companion while you play, unfortunately. If you don't mind a little bit of work, though, it's very easy to convert our patch files into readable text with a program called FEAT. Just drag the "m" folder of our patch onto the program window, and you should get a bunch of text files. You can then run those through a parse-and-preview program (such as this or this). It's not the most ideal solution, but if you're looking for something to read as you're playing the game, it should do the job.
  21. Just to be sure, were you following this tutorial? Attempting to generate Xorpads without obtaining the ncchinfo.bin will give you invalid Xorpads.
  22. Yep! The patcher will just replace the old files with our updated copies.
  23. It's out! Release version 4.1 is ready and available on our Github repo! Direct link can be found on in the OP as well as here: https://github.com/TeamIf/FireEmblemIf-FanTranslation/releases/tag/v4.1 Release notes are on GitHub, as well, but I'll post them here as well: All male/male first generation supports translated and edited First gen M/F 60% translated/edited Second gen supports progress remain at 4% My Castle and events progress remain at 45% Reported game-breaking, almost all minor issues fixed Minor revisions throughout supports and some chapters Sorry it's not as exciting as the previous release, but 4.1 should be a lot more stable thanks to everyone's suggestions and bug reports. As always, if you find something wrong or out of place, or simply have a suggestion for us, let us know here, or leave a note on our issues board.
  24. Thanks for the extra information, Kyonko! As for the support and Muse errors, we were actually made aware of those a month or so ago and have already fixed both! They'll both be available in the next release. Speaking of which, we have a date for the next milestone release! It won't be as grand as the last one though. For this milestone, we focused on fixing bugs, correcting mistakes, and revising some of our older files. That said, this milestone also marks the completion of all male/male first-generation supports, as well as a number of male/female first gen supports. We'll be putting up Release 4.1 on February 7th. And as always, thank you for sticking with us for so long! I've been getting a lot of messages from you guys, and it really does mean a lot to me and the rest of the team that you still care so much about this project. We're doing our best to get this out to you as quickly as possible, so stay tuned, and happy Heroes day!
  25. Well crap. The following meant to go up last week, but it never got submitted for whatever reason. Thank god for autosave, I guess. Still, I should've checked to see if it posted. Sorry again for the silence! I responded to your DM on Twitter, but I'll answer your questions here for others, as well. Unfortunately, because Invisible Kingdom is only available as downloadable content, re-patching the main game won't update the content in IK. The only dialogue files content present in Invisible Kingdom are story-relevant, with more generic lines like shop greetings and menus are pulled from the updated base game. That's precisely the reason. In order to use the current patch with Invisible Kingdom, you'll need to update the DLC content itself, which involves dumping as a .cia, modifying its contents, and rebuilding. The process is a bit different compared to regular games, and we don't offer any way of automating it at the moment, but if you were able to install it with a 3.1 patch, then it shouldn't be too difficult to find the means to install the 4.0 patch, as well. Alternatively, there's an NTR plugin floating around that lets you simply toss the patch files into a folder on your SD card and load them at runtime. This method works for DLC, as well. The chapter 14 bug was caused by a typo in the dialogue, so your save wouldn't affect anything. Sorry I couldn't respond before you restarted the chapter! Thanks for letting us know! That's interesting, especially if it's a bug that only affects non-NA consoles. I couldn't tell you what the problem is right now, but I'll add it to the issues list and see what we can do. Could you let me know what gender you were playing, as well? Edit: Since it appears that this bug is possible on a NA 3DS as well, it'll be easier to test for it. But if some people get it while others don't, which sounds like the case from what I've heard, it makes me wonder if the issue stems from our files or something else entirely. If you've experienced the bug or have any more information about it, please leave a comment on our open issue page. If the information you provide helps us find and fix the problem, we'll add your name to the credits list. Thank you!
