Catherine: Full Body [JP] [English/Spanish port with Japanese or English dub] [Vita]

Due to the initial release of manual transcribing the game and this mod gaining some visibility and publicity to the scene a user who does not want to be named provided me a decrypted PS4 assets of this game and now this mod is now a full translation port of the PS4 assets. Some text is still manually transcribed since higher PS4 firmware eboots are still not decryptable and PS4 usm video files seem to not have subtitles in them (maybe also inside the eboot), while assets are. This also the reason why the Spanish port will still have a few English in them on the menu due to the eboot issues. Will do the French port after this whole covid19 thing.

Old v0.80 readme.
Here’s an English port of Catherine: Full Body since Atlus decided not to localize it to the Vita then to rub more salt in our wounds decided to make a poll and include this game to one of the possible games to be ported to the switch. Oh yeah, Before I start and probably wondering how is this possible. I don’t have any secret hacks or exploits for the PS4 to get the English assets. This is just good old-fashioned transcribing text from numerous videos on YouTube and my own gameplay. So, most of the untranslated text you may see is the text that I have not encounter during my numerous playthroughs. Since there’s a bit progress on the PS4 scene about backporting and decrypting higher firmware games. I decided to wait for that process to mature, be public and have a more comprehensive guide before completing this port and save myself from manually typing what I see on the screen. The port is mostly playable, probably 70% and if you play just the story and ignoring random dialogs of the NPC’s you’ll mostly see English text and get all the 13 endings and since today is the anniversary of the release date of this game for the vita here’s the playable BETA English port for everyone to enjoy.

Additional Notes:
○ You may need to have a overclock plug-in if you feel stutters in the game and improve its fps. 444 should be enough.
○ Extra Voices DLC would not work on the dub version m as there’s only one English dub voice actor for Catherine even on the PS4 version, so even if you change the voice it will still revert to the original Catherine voice. If you use the English Translation and Japanese Dub, the extra voices DLC will work as intended.
○ Other DLC like the Nero glasses and Persona 5 DLC are just unlock DLC and should work with this translation port without problems and will be also translated.
○ On the English port + Japanese dub there are times there are voiceover at the start of the nightmare, this is normal and the why the original game behaves even on the PS4 version and it has no subtitles to edit, English dub will have no problems on this as the spoken language is already in English.
○ “I got an msvcr100.dll error when decrypting the game”. Be sure your Windows installation is up to date and you have Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2012 installed. You may need to install both x86 and x64 Version.
○ If you have problems decrypting game using psvpfsparser, you can try decrypting your game using Vitashell “Open decrypted” feature and dump it via FTP.
○ Vitashell “Open decrypted” feature only works via FTP mode and would not work while in USB mode.
○ If there are major bugs and you want it to be fixed, contact me and send a screenshot of it or the text before or after the text bug.
