Dragon Quest Heroes 2 [JP] (English mod patcher v0.90) [Vita]

(old video)

Dunno if I could still finish this, so I’ll just leave this here so some may have a look
at it and maybe continue to fix the ones I can’t or use this as a reference. Pretty much
most text and some images of the PC version is ported but a lot on in-game menu text is
cut-off, does not fit or overshoot the text window. Dialog seems fine… well most of it
anyways. Don’t know how to do eboot mods or disassemble the eboot to know which values to
change.

So yeah, this project is kinda dead now due to technical difficulties or my incompetence
on Eboot disassembly / modding for the Vita. For those who are interested in continuing
this project, I still have some quickbms scripts I’ve made and some documentation on which
files are which between the PC and vita version and its G1T image format. Might be helpful
in creating better modding / editing tools.

Kinda forgot to give this game a version number, So now I’m officially calling it v0.90
english patch, reflecting how much of it was translated and the remaining 0.1 are the text
bugs and such.

What’s done in the v.90 beta patch:
※ All Story text
※ All menu text
※ All image text
※ FMV subtitles
※ All System text vita popup in-game

What’s not translated:
※ Very few texts that maybe I’ve missed.

Bugs:
※ Some miss aligned text
※ Some text overshooting the text window
※ Some text are very compact together
※ Some image text
※ If you got a C2-12828-1 error just delete eboot and self_auth.bin inside ux0:rePatch/PCSG00820
*But deleting this will revert the Japanese on the Character Name input screen.
*Not really an issue if you are planning on using the default character name.

Requirements:
※ Hacked Vita (Enso/h-encore)
※ Repatch plugin (installed on the Vita and verified working)
※ NoNpDrm plugin (installed on the Vita and verified working)
※ reF00D plugin (installed on the Vita and verified working)
※ Vitashell
※ FTP program (Winscp recommended)
※ This English patch
