Rune Factory Oceans (EUR – Dual Audio)

By | June 8, 2013

Rune Factory Oceans (EUR - Dual Audio) title image

Dual audio (undub) version of the PlayStation 3 game “Rune Factory Oceans” (EUR release).

This is basically my Wii undub with a properly edited RFF2.dat, no name changes and the original title thanks to the European release. The minor Wii issues (incorrectly mapped “Merry Christmas!” and “Let’s check out that island!”) most likely remain although I haven’t tested it so far.

Changes to BLES01550:
– replaced \PS3_GAME\USRDIR\Sound\stream\ with BLJS10106’s (90% of Japanese voices)
– added BLJS10106’s \PS3_GAME\USRDIR\RFF2.dat audio files to BLES01550’s and rebuilt RFF2.bin (voice mapping fix and remaining 10% of Japanese voices)
– replaced \PS3_GAME\USRDIR\Movie\MOVIE_02_01.sfd and \PS3_GAME\USRDIR\Movie\MOVIE_02_06.sfd with BLJS10106’s (Japanese audio for videos)

To-do:
– Change all names to the original ones (too much effort and becomes quite difficult for images but would allow to replace the ending video with the higher-quality Japanese one)
– Fix any remaining mismapped voices (effort as well)

Notes:
– Use AudioLanguageSelector.bat to switch between Japanese and English.
– Use checksum.sfv to check integrity.
– Some voices may be incorrectly mapped. Please report if you encounter any.
– The game didn’t let me repoint duplicate files in RFF2.dat to only 1 instance but removing some MBs of padding worked. Yay!
– The 2 video files mentioned above have been downgraded in both video quality and audio (5.1 to 2.0). If someone knows how to re-mux those .sfd files (losslessly!), please tell me. This only affects English audio.

      Fortunately, there aren’t many PS3 games that need to be undubbed. Those 2 are all I can think of (that interest me) so far.

        Yeah, only other potentially interesting PS3 games I can think of now that need an undub now is Catherine and Tales of Xillia whenever it’s out. Someone else already made an undub for Tales of Graces F, and now we got one for Ayesha and Rune Factory. I’m thankful enough to finally have the chance to play (and most importantly, enjoy) these games :)

          Not interested in Catherine but yeah, waiting for ToX EUR now. I hope the skits aren’t as annoying to deal with as in ToSR which I never managed to fix…
          There seems to be an Rune Factory undub floating around already but apparently without a modified RFF2.dat/.bin, so quite a lot of mismapped and English voices remain.

          Actually an undub for Catherine is very easy to make. I was surprised because of the lipsync but apparently it was easy. Just go into the PS3_Game\USRDIR inside the Japanese version of the game and copy the movie&shaders folders as well as the sound.cpk file into its equivalent in the US game folder.

          With that being said, I do have to say that the english version for Catherine is fantastic and they really did a great job, but Miyuki Sawashiro voicing a cutesy character like Catherine is just unfair because nothing can match this.

      This game requires BD Mirror. If you’re using multiMAN, enable it in its options (version 04.04.00 or greater for internal HDD support).

    Hi

    but would allow to replace the ending video with the higher-quality Japanese one)

    does this mean the ending videos / fmv quality in NA/EUR is different from the JPN version?

    I have the NA ps3 tides of destiny but never noticed the quality difference from the wii JPN oceans

      The Japanese one is higher quality, yes. And the videos on the Wii version aren’t even in 720p.

          No, I meant the credit roll which has a lower bitrate in the US/EU versions. It’s not a huge deal, just something that’d be nice to improve.
          All videos except the credit roll and the first anime cutscene were identical iirc.

      Yes. I’m just starting to download it also when I found out there are no seeds available. Can anyone seed?

    Yunii, yes you do. It’s an undubbed ISO and you need a PS3 with CFW or an ODE installed to load this. Nice work by the way Majin3.

    Anyone want to seed? Or seed until I can at least download the .dat and the .bin file so I can replace the rest myself? ;-;

        Will you be re-uploading this anytime soon? I don’t even see a listing on TPB anymore.
        Edit: To be more specific, I don’t see the PS3 version anywhere.

          I can’t keep seeding this forever… There seem to be 2 seeders available right now, though.

            Yeah, the Nyaa listing had it at 0 seeders, and it was, but I figured maybe some person would eventually open up their torrent client and it’d trickle in a bit. I think you’re probably the only seeder left as it has listed it as (1) since last night. Or it’s some kind soul, though it’s at a painful 3 to 4kb/s. Good news is I have it at 85% as I let it sit overnight, I just hope someone has the last 15% downloaded to seed to me. After I finish it I’ll seed for about a month or two. I really appreciate undubs like this as they’re impossible to find elsewhere, especially for one of my favourite series. Thanks for what you do.

    I’m currently seeding this. For those who don’t want to use the torrent, go to pastebin and search for the file, the links work perfectly for me.

    I know this is old, but can you tell me or refer me to some sort of docs on how to extract the assets (textures, models, sounds, etc) in that RFF2.dat file that you modified?
