There's a patch for this game that I like to use, found here:

Hopefully there won't be any compatibility issues, but I'll definitely report any that I find.

From the website:

So what exactly is altered by this patch?

Controls are put back to the original Japanese controls.
In-game battle combos are back to the original Japanese ones (matching Japanese controls).
Audio in the Full Motion Videos is in Japanese with English subtitles.
Voices in the game are back to the original Japanese ones (in battles + certain cutscenes).
The weight unit in character's stats is back to kilos (.kgs instead of .lbs).
Emeralda's icon eyebrow transparency is corrected.
The selection arrow in shop menus doesn't overlap choices (Buy, Sell, Exit) anymore.

Note: there are no changes whatsoever to the script.

Set is open for development if anyone is interested to take the project.

I'll start working on a set for this. I prefer to use the patch that I mentioned above, but if it turns out that the normal version is incompatible with the achievements I may switch to the normal version. I'll test to see if translation patches also work. Personally I think the Japanese VA and minor gameplay changes are worth it, but we'll see how it pans out. I'll update with progress.

I'd like to request the checksum for the patched version be added to the database, should I post it on Discord?

Posted: 14 Dec, 2019 23:57
Ok, so for now this game is open again to anybody that wants to work on it. I'm going to do a playthrough and get down some savestates and ideas. It's a long game, so anyone that also wants to work with it or may make faster progress than me should definitely do so. If not, I'll come back and report on progress.

I would still like to get the patched version added to the database, since I think the improvements are vastly worth it.

Do we have a general estimate of when this might be ready? Is there anything we (non-developers) can do to help? Thanks.
