Atelier Ayesha ~The Alchemist of Dusk~ (USA - Dual Audio) title image

Dual audio (undub) version of the PlayStation 3 game “Atelier Ayesha ~The Alchemist of Dusk~” (USA release).

V1.0.1 Fix
Copy v15000.fp to \PS3_GAME\USRDIR\Res\sound\voice\fp\ (or fp_jpn if you have English audio selected) to fix missing DLC character voices in Japanese audio.

Thanks to anonymous.

Changes to BLUS31152:
– replaced \PS3_GAME\USRDIR\Res\sound\voice\fp\ folder with BLJM60486’s (Japanese audio for events)
– re-muxed \PS3_GAME\USRDIR\Res\movie\worldview_0*.pams’ audio with BLJM60486’s (Japanese audio for videos)

Notes:
– Use AudioLanguageSelector.bat to switch between Japanese and English.
– Use checksum.md5 to check integrity (may not be compatible with all .md5 verifiers).
– Set your PS3’s language to English if you want English trophies instead of Japanese ones. Trophies will stay in same language they were installed in regardless of changes afterward (general bug of BLUS31152).
– Game will not install to HDD if you installed DLC behorehand (general bug of BLUS31152 and maybe BLJM60486, too). I got it to run without installation but I’m unsure how as it stopped working for no apparent reason. DLC files differ from those installed by the game as well so I don’t know how to merge them properly.
– Game will create an “PS3_GAMERes” folder in its root for some reason (general bug of the game?).
– All of BLUS31152’s video files, except the opening which is untouched, are of lower quality (both video and audio) than BLJM60486’s but since all of them were changed in some way, I didn’t replace them.
– Japanese audio isn’t perfectly in sync with some videos since they were timed differently.

    Wow! I did not think anyone was working on a UNDUB of this title.
    1000x Thank you for releasing what should have been released in the first place.

    Now, the BIG question, will you attempt a Xillia UNDUB as that has
    been confirmed that the western release is screwed up as usual?

      Installed CFW after 1.5 years because of this. Oh well, not my problem if KC doesn’t want my money.
      I’m not planning to actually play Xillia US/EU (will get it to laugh about the translation, though) so not sure. I’ve written an extractor for the game files in the past but undubbing it will be way more work than Ayesha. But I’m sure someone’ll do it.

        There’s an undub for Tales of Graces F so I’m sure someone will make one for Xillia too. Unless Namco/Bandai finally learns how to localize the Tales games properly with the original Japanese audio, but unfortunately they’re too incompetent to do that.

        Anyway, many thanks for the Ayesha undub! :) hopefully TK has learned from their mistake and won’t ruin Escha & Logy’s localization as well.

    thx for the undub …. but i finally i found a error D:

    “- BLUS31152 contains 1 file more than BLJM60486 in \PS3_GAME\USRDIR\Res\sound\voice\fp\ although it is not installed by the game. If the file is used somewhere, the game may crash if set to Japanese audio. Please report if this happens.”

    that missing file/or difference between jpn and ENG … v15000.fp its DLC character voice on ENG version :O i just tried it putting the ENG file on JPN voice and Odelia has voice in battle ….i wonder if that file its downloaded when u buy the DLC on jpn version .. or odelia and marion voice (probably) its probably in other file ….

    well thats what i just want to inform

    thx anyway … and sorry for my english … bye

      Ah, thanks, makes sense. But that’s too bad, someone’d need to buy the Japanese DLCs to fix this.

    How do you switch the language to japanese? I clicked on the AudioLanguageSelector.bat file in multiman and it said the language is switch to japanese but when I load the game it’s still in english…

        that xP is a face no mean windows XP xD .. u can execute .bat at any windows

          yeah I tried in windows (xp because that’s what I got)

          Current voice language: Japanese
          Do you want to switch to English [Y/N]? N

          Then I leave it just like that and load the eboot in multiman, but the voice is still in english… do you use multiman to load games on your PS3? if not then I’ll try the program you use.

            Try uninstalling the game completely from your PS3, and reinstall to see if it works. The AudioLanguageSelector should be set to Japanese by default, so no need to mess with it.

            The .bat just executes a few rename commands in Windows. If you didn’t mess with the game files and it says “Japanese” (which is default) then it will load in Japanese (loader doesn’t matter). But yeah, try a clean reinstall like BlinkWinkel said.

            Thanks a lot guys! For some reason uninstalling the game and re-install fixed the problem

      Seems like the site died during my download. Thanks, I’ll check it once it works again and if it looks compatible, add it to the main post. Can’t test it, though…
      EDIT: That seems to be it. Added, thanks again.

    Some game companies should do their jobs properly. I would be ashamed of myself after seeing the greatness you have accomplished. Thanks for the japanese track.

    Does this work on the EU version? Also I bought the EU retail disc so I’m not sure how to use the v15000.fp file if this is the case.

    Reply
    1. Majin3 Post author

      Video files and the v15000.fp aren’t being installed by the game so the best you can get with booting the retail disc is an undub with videos and DLC characters still being in English. For that you’d need to replace game/BLES01793/USRDIR/Res/sound/voice/fp/ with the files from the torrent.
      If you’re fine with booting from HDD/USB and want to create an EU Dual Audio version: Replace \PS3_GAME\USRDIR\Res\sound\voice\fp\ and all \PS3_GAME\USRDIR\Res\movie\worldview_0*.pams and add the _eng folders as well as AudioLanguageSelector.bat to the root. v15000.fp behaves the same.

    Is there a usage guide for PS3 game patches like this?
    I have no idea what to do with these files.
    Do you need a different OS on your PS3 or something? Any resources or documentation would be very much appreciated.

    Hello guys I would like to ask you a question since i seem to experience an issue:
    I’ve downloaded the torrent and I’ve transfered via FTP to my ps3 and I can run the game and all, but I only have the voices from the videos in japanese while the rest is still in English. Anyone else experienced same issue? I’ve tried several times different approaches, but I can’t seem to fix the issue.

    Thanks again for your hardwork in undubbing this very good game.

    p.s. I’ve also downloaded another version (while testing all possible solutions) of atelier ayesha where the folder in res/sound/voice/ doesn’t even have the folder “fp” but it has different files.

      Nevermind I found the solution already thanks to Majin3.
      My issue was solved by simply uninstalling my english atelier ayesha game data and re-installing it with the undubbed version. No need to re-transfer the whole thing via FTP (thankfully)

      Have fun gaming guys.

    i really have nowhere else left to ask this so if someone could tell me i would be really grateful. what region does the dlc need to be for it to work with this undub. i don’t want to do a trial and error by buying the dlc across all regions. if anybody knows please do tell me. i’ve asked this question on multiple boards but have yet to get an answer…

      It’s stated pretty clearly in the title that this is based on the US version.

        thanks for answering. friends i asked about this all answered differently and when i asked on boards nobody replied. not getting a sure answer from people i asked made me doubt how i understood the post.

        anyway, thanks again for taking the time to reply to my dumb question.

          You could always just look at the title ID in your favorite game loader or open PS3_DISC.SFB / PARAM.SFO in a hex editor and check it there. No need to rely on random boards. Though if I wrote my undub is based on the US version, it most likely is.

    thx for the upload. just wanna ask about the data I get from torrent. I realized it’s missing its ps3 update. doesn that mean I have to copy paste the data from torrent to the eng version or just start directly the data I received from torrent directly in PS3 without the PS3 update? and do I have to install this in HDD if I want to play it? thx, pls reply.

    Reply
    1. Majin3 Post author

      The update was removed because it’s useless for CFW users. You can run the game just fine without it. No need to put it back.
      Yes, the game will install itself upon boot.
