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.

what are you talking about? FFtype 0 translation is extremely slow, absolutely horrendous compared to the english translation of the origonal pacman, they managed to translate all 12 words in about 2 days! compared to that FF type 0 is complete shit, not even worth thinking about.

Weird guy, no one promised that there will be a patch really soon.
With their progress now, I think it will take another 2 years till the patch is ready. Either play in japanese or wait for it.
I have waited 5 years, another 5 years won’t hurt me.

Well i guess no april fools patch, and for DAWNBOMB ff type 0 is not shit its a very good game you obviously dont know a great game even if it smacked you in the face but thats your lame opinion and also how would you know how good or lame fft0 is if you dont know jap or read jap, you dont know a game until you finish it and know all of what the game has to offer.

star violet,,,sorry star but it seems like,it wont happen,,this project almost 3 or 4 years but still they even finish the half of it,,if they close this one,,i will never follow any of the translation project that they will going to do,,,the staff of this project are all full of lazy slackers,,,,its seems like they just dreaming but cant make it into reality,,i think the tales of innocent,,its just only luck that they finish it early,,
April 27, 2014 at 2:09 pm | Permalink
They also finished Tales of Tempest, and it explains Kajitani Eizan’s lack of progress since he was busy on that as well.
I have faith that we’ll eventually see the translation of ToH DS, but it won’t be before ToH R’s release.
May 1, 2014 at 2:02 pm | Permalink
Well, meanwhile this is in indefinite hold, i’m looking forward to the ToPX patch, go,go!.

What’s with your asshole answers to simple questions regarding your work? You should be HAPPY that people are showing interest in your work. No wonder this patch never saw the light of day. You were too busy chewing out your fans.
I’m glad ToH Vita is getting an official translation. I’d HATE to have to force myself to support you assholes and your shitty attitudes in order to play ToH.

@Asshole Replies: You have it backwards. So kindly fuck off. Thank you.

I think those answers are pretty funny actually.
May 8, 2014 at 9:35 am | Permalink
So what happened to the project? Not really raging mad since I have a Vita, but does this mean the patch will be dropped; or on hold?
May 9, 2014 at 10:34 pm | Permalink

I hot it working in English. But is the entire game English or just some? Someone please email me a response. Micxploed@gmail.com
August 8, 2014 at 9:34 pm | Permalink
Ok, I got it. The english translation dose not go beyond chapter 1. So dose that mean from chapter 2 foward it will be japanese? Also, after applying the patch I started a new game and apperntly it loads a save file that is wayyy into the game but if you try to progress any further you get this screen where it basically says sorry can’t go any further.
August 9, 2014 at 9:18 am | Permalink
dude the patch that u download is just only a demo kindly read the description, and also the translation is still in progress,,u will wait a year or two for the completion maybe,,since there is a release on vita hope

November 22, 2014 at 4:23 pm | Permalink
Now that the remake is out is this starting back up?
November 29, 2014 at 9:17 pm | Permalink
What is the translator cut?? i don’t get this at all.
is a patch for the same game or a different game?
Is it an update of the first patch or a different thing.
Why do you make all so difficult to understand instead of putting huge walls of text that explain nothing why not give the useful information? This looks like 5 years old site or a troll.

Try reading the walls of text.

Please explain what J/K tag is, I dunno which posts I should believe because of that tag
November 30, 2014 at 6:58 am | Permalink
Any post tagged with J/K may not be entirely serious
But some parts of it might be
For example, the initial Translator’s Cut post mentioned a bunch of joke features, but one of those actually made it into Translator’s Cut in some form
EMO is a real feature that really works as described
November 30, 2014 at 9:19 am | Permalink
I’ve expect more the hack than the translation. D:

December 12, 2014 at 1:10 am | Permalink
Seriously guys, giving up on it already? I lost all faith in both of ya now… You are being worse than Capcom with this kind of excuse…
December 12, 2014 at 9:48 am | Permalink
I’d be fine with just a menu patch.
December 15, 2014 at 6:08 pm | Permalink
Wow, look at all the ungrateful “fans.”
If I were you, I’d delay the project everytime someone complains.
December 24, 2014 at 7:00 am | Permalink
@Kurou Sakura : LOL, someone complains because he delayed.
Fans, they love this game, he show a promised project to them, then delay it over 4 years.
“delay the project everytime someone complains” LOL, what you said like “when I happy, I continues project, when I have sad, I delay” , treats fans like a dog =)) , you happy, you feed it, you sad, you throw shit to it =))
This project seem like a shitty trolling he throw to fans.
December 31, 2014 at 8:10 am | Permalink
Fans? Let’s put one thing to place:
The Tales of… series has fans.
Tales of Hearts has fans.
Bandai Namco has fans.
However, all Kaji’s been doing is to ride on the fanbase of these brands/people, thus abuse their hard work. And that’s the keyword: work. Namco worked hard to make great games in this franchise, a lot of effort went into most installments and the reward of that effort was a sizeable fan base. However, what effort did Kaji put down thus far? No finished translations, some screenshots, videos and 2 demos, each of which could be done within a week. And badmouthing of Namco’s efforts at localization, whereas by the time it was completed (roughly 6 years after the release of the DS version) he could’ve completed his own translation two times over. The fans Kaji has are actually not his, but Tales of’s and Namco’s and all Kaji’s been doing is basking in their attention, trolling them and bastarding the Tales franchise.

You have no idea how much work a proper translation (both on the text and on the programming side) takes if you think everything that was done for the Hearts DS translation can be accomplished within a week. You also fail to notice that many other fan translations take equally long and longer.

no no señor!,,,how about a question! why the final fantasy type 0,,or about monster hunter portable 3,,they are more bigger,,and high graphics game than this one,,but they complete it,,they finish what they did!,,,why this freaking game that has only 2d graphics and not that big game wont finish,,,,because they are bunch of lazy people! who just giving false hope to all of the fans !! so dont talk like you know everything Kingcom shit head!!

The keyword is FREE, that should answer almost all questions.
