Is there a way to modify the language version of a psx game by aplying a patch?
I got a game in japanese and i would like to know if this can be done and if so, where do i find the tools to patch the game?
This may seem a bit lamer, but i haven't found anything in the net about that!
I know that patches can be aplied to psx games to make them run in emu (ex: FF9), but what i ask is if the language can be modified like the snes games.
tHANKS! :yawn:

Not so, Enigma. See, a good portion of the data in any given ISO file is comprised of the images, MDECs and sound in a game. If a translation was to just modify the textual dialog the patch would be fairly small, as it'd only need to modify the changes to the game; in this case, the altered text. You would be correct, however, if the patch were to add English voice acting or alter the MDECs in some fashion.

A good example of this is the case of Tales of Phantasia for the SNES. The game itself clocks in around four megs in size. The patch, however, is only a few hundred kilobytes, seeing as how it only has to replace the native Japanese script with roman characters and then insert the modified text. This is also why many people have been able to port the DeJap translation to other languages which use a roman character set.

Anywho, if a language patch were to exist for a given PSX game, it'd most likely use the standard .ips language patching system, as its fairly well tested and multipurpose.
