Q. Help, it doesn’t work! xdelta says something cryptic like “XD3_INVALID_INPUT”. Why your patch doesn’t work?!?!

A. Thank you for your question. I’m not totally sure what the problem is, but it just might be that your INPUT is INVALID. Make sure you have selected the .xdelta patch as the “Patch” and your clean copy of the game as the “Source File”. If it doesn’t work, chances are good that your ROM is corrupted, trimmed, or patched with something else (i.e. not clean).

Q. Why I can’t load savegame?!?!

A. Thank you for your question. I am glad to see that you have exhausted all available resources that may address your issue before giving up and wasting everyone’s time by asking stupid questions. To answer your question, you must have a Nintendo 4DS Advance, or loading of your saved games will not work.

Q. Where is Translator’s Cut patch?!?! It’s impossible to find!!1

A. Thank you for your question. Have you considered reading the post? It just might help you figure out where the patch is. Still can’t find it? Are you sure you read the post? The entire post? Try reading it again. Still can’t find it? Sorry, but you must have a Sony Playstation SP Series S, or the download link will not appear.

  12. Danny

    I won’t be using this unless there’s a CG version available… I really want to play this, and I think the anime cutscenes for this game are really ugly and they don’t fit the sci-fi setting of the game whereas the CG does… please, tell me, will there be a CG version available? I hope so.

  13. Aqua

    He probably didn’t tell you this, but he’s actually mixing the two together in a seamless blend of animation and CG for the best looking game ever.

  14. SomeRandomGuy

    Are they still working on the patch because I can’t wait for the full game to be translated ._.

  15. marques johnson

    is there any updates on the patch

  16. Boss

    make one for the CG version please~

  17. sakura

    please update the patch or upgrade information bar to see how much absence

  18. Duffman24

    Very a good work ! Thank you very much !

  19. Sei

    This translation is looking good. I look forward to playing the game again with this in effect. Some tell me to simply learn Japanese, but its not really as simple as that. Anyways, nice work Kajitani.

  20. Yosh

    I’m really excited! Wish you luck Kajitani!

  21. Rewritten

    Just giving a quick…update? Throughhim413 is gonna get the site back up. There’s just a few issues with his site’s hoster or something…

  22. Ariel Lopez

    I played it on the 3DS but for some reason cant load the save file any help ?

  23. Rewritten

    @Ariel Lopez

    not sure if srs

    But in the event that you are, open the text file inside the patch folder. There will be this file that includes the words “read” and “me”. In case you didn’t realize, you’re supposed to read that. I know it’s a bit unreasonable for anyone to expect you to know that you’re supposed to read the file, since you’re not psychic. It’s not like the two aforementioned words suggested in any way, shape or form that you might want to read the file. etc.

    If that doesn’t work, you have to have Sony’s Vita, convert/transfer the patched ROM and then run it on that.

  24. Ariel Lopez

    Wow dude dont be a dick

  25. Rewritten

    I apologize for my rude comment/response, but that was a pretty stupid question. The readme stated that you could not load the game, the entire demo patch update stated that you couldn’t, and if that wasn’t enough, THIS page linked to both of them in the FAQ. >_>

  26. Ariel Lopez

    Well sorry bro it’s that im such a Tales fan and Simply didn’t read any faq cause it was given to me by a friend soo he didn’t tell I could’n load my save file I was soo excited for it to be on english that i kept playing for like 8 hours only putting the DS on standby next morning when I turned it on and tried to load the file guess what ? surprise ….fuck i could’n load the file but thanks anyway for giving me a chance to try it out on english and at least know the beginning of the story 🙂

  27. Meh

    @ Ariel Lopez
    8 hours? I’m sure you would’ve noticed by then that the rest of the game wasn’t translated…

    In other news, Captain America sucked big, hairy, WWII-era plutonium-239 irradiated balls, as predicted by Nostradamus. Now we’ll never get Xenoblade…

  28. Issun

    Hey dudes ! I’d enjoy playing this demo , but I don’t succeed with patching it. I tried a lot of cleaned roms, and even tried to use a Cleaner, but still doesn’t work.
    Could somebody help me? share a patched rom on share files websites?
    Thanks and have nice holidays !

    PS : sorry for my bad english way of talking, I’m french . God save Kaji !

  29. tatsuya

    man$_$ the transalation is damn good man almost like usa/eur ver
    keep up the good work^^

  30. tatsuya

    is this true ? we have to buy 3ds just to load this game?

  31. rengeki

    is this true ? we have to buy 3ds just to load this game? hmmmm

  32. marques johnson

    updates please

  33. jay

    nice1! keep up the good job sir! 🙂

  34. om3gakais3r

    is it true you ported it to vita???! darn.. can’t use desmume anymore :((

  35. Rewritten


    people actually took that vita part of the post seriously


  36. Zao

    You lot of unbelievers will be crying and hating when the patch gets released. Buy a 3ds now so you can load in the demo and buy a Vita as soon as you can because Kajitani may release the patch sooner than we expect. Just don’t say you weren’t warned.

  37. unknown

    wow! the progress bar moved almost one %, nice!!!, though i hope we won’t wait for 8 years of tales for it to be done….:P

  38. Edison Chang

    is there ETA for the complete patch for ToH??? 😀

  39. Mr ManGuy

    Well didnt Innocence take 1.5-2 years to do? well this is worth the weight, why? cause we all know we’ll all play the crap out it like all the other tales games (100+, 2-4 play throughs)… guessing summer 2012 or feb 2013. My random ETA dont read to much into

  40. Emoven

    [No ROM begging, please. Thanks!]

  41. Emoven

    [I said no ROM begging.]

  42. Marc


  43. Emil

    Keep up the good work Kajitani!!!~ 🙂

  44. Xadjim

    So now i know it 😀 you are reading our comments 🙂
    Im checking your website since some years now 😀 and i hope you are done soon 😛 it would be great when you tell us how far you already are…

  45. MightyBoosh

    Kaji’s posted before several times.. just sayin.

  46. GamingManiac

    Hope the translation finished soon, I bet this game had an interesting storyline,but I can’t read any words of Japanese, then I never understand or knowing the story abouts (though I studied 2 years in high school lol)

    Keep up the good work…

  47. HaVeN

    Hey eji, been a while :p

    wew! back again, after a few more months, just checking if any progress has been made, (looks around), nope, still the same, o yeah, wait a minute, there was something that had changed, the previously eight years, has now been extended to nine years, WOW!, maybe by that time I’ll have a kid that could play this game, hopefully the translation will be finished by that time, well, time to place my DS on a time deposit box… well be sein you guys then, oh just a thought, it will take you about two years to learn how to read japanese, heck with proper tutorials and guidance, it could take less a year, maybe i’ll try that, not only did i learn to speak and read a different language, i could play this game, without relying on someone to translate it, and wait for the end of the world for its completion, hahaha, (gets up from chair), better start learning it then….adios
