AC3e IE Disc 1/2 ~status quo alteration~


Disc 1


This release contains English translations for:
  • M01-09;
  • M19-33+Ending A;
  • M34-38+Ending B.
Additionally, biographies for all characters and descriptions for the GRDF, NEU and SARF, can be found, in English, by accessing the Search menu from Data Swallow's main screen. The armory has been completely translated as well.

In the RAR you'll find: the patching utility, a cover image and a Read Me file with instructions, terms of use, credits, acknowledgements and other important information. For dialogue that does not have in-game subtitles, a translation text file has been included.

This release is currently compatible only with Windows systems and requires .NET Framework 4.0 (possibly lower). Also playable on a PS1.

Please give us your feedback on our thread on RHDN with your opinions, glitches you found or even just to say thanks

    1. There may be a small error or two in the current 1.0 release but feel free to upload videos of our fan-translation.

  2. YES!! Thank you! 1 thing though. How does the Disk 1 and Disk 2 thing work? Is it like Metal Gear Solid wear in order to continue the story you need disk 2? and is it possible to complete some stories entirely on disk 1? Either way i'm hyped. Downloading right away!

    1. AC3E has five paths, each leading to a different ending. Disc 1 has about half the game's missions, with two full paths and the first half of the UPEO storyline.

      Check out this post http://useatoday.blogspot.ch/2014/01/mission-list-jpus-notes.html from yesteryear and download the mission chart to help you with navigating the missions from Disc 1. I added the English titles in myself to help anyone find their way.

      Remember to look for missions 1 through 9, and 19 through 38, those are the ones on Disc 1.

  3. It'd be nice if someone could apply the patch then make an .xdelta and upload it somewhere (or an .imageDiff for that matter)
    Again, not everyone is on Win/.NET4... :S

    1. An .xdelta can be made in 3 clicks ^^;

    2. Thank you for the heads up, my first test seems to have been successful.

      I plan on updating our Disc 1 patch to v1.1 soon and releasing it as an xdelta thanks to its smaller file size and higher compatibility.

      Delete
    3. Ahh! Thank you very much, can't wait ;D

      Delete
    4. You'll have to make a separate .xdiff for both releases of the game, assuming they're not exactly the same.

      Delete
    5. How's the .xdelta coming for the SLPS version DSXIII ? ^^

    Awesome! I can't wait to try this patch, thank you for all your hard work Team Nemo.

    By the way, I can provide you some high resolution scans for the game covers and the manual in case you are interested in creating translated versions of them ;)

    1. Hey there Scholar!

      If we can find someone willing to translate the text, I think it'd be really cool.

      Ok, I'll scan all the stuff anyways to have it at hand in case it's needed.

  8. Is this release compatible with a PS3 running CFW?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. We have yet to receive feedback from PS3 and PS2 users. Right now, as far as actual hardware goes, only the PS1 is confirmed compatible.

      That said, the way we translated the game is such that if the NTSC-J AC3E works with a PS3, there's no reason to believe that a patched copy shouldn't. Still waiting for confirmation though.

      Delete
    2. Playing on my CFW PS3. The 4 mission demo, this disc too work fine.

      Delete
    3. Thanks a lot for that, I'll make sure to add the CFW PS3 to the list of compatible devices!

      Delete
    4. Hey there DSXIII, I can confirm that the patched disc 1 of AC3E converted into Sony's eboot format works on my PSP3003 with CFW PRO 6.60-C2 with POPSLoader PRO/ME mod v4e (PRO Mode).

      Delete
    5. What a mouthful, but I'll add that one too, thanks.

  9. I've spent the last hour or so just playing through as much of disk 1 as I could, and I'm very pleased to say that first impressions are very good. However, I've noticed a problem with Fragile Cargo. The text in the starting cutscene appears with a purple background and the Commander's text for the Update Target also doesn't fit together compared to other missions.

    Minor issues, but otherwise very good work on disk 1 and I can't wait for disk 2.

    1. Thanks for your feedback! I'm already in the process of fixing issues that escaped me before release, will be taking a look at that mission next.

  14. Should I burn the resulting .bin, or should I burn the original .cue, while changing original bin with converted one?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Just burn the BIN and CUE that pop up in \cd after you patch the originals.

      Delete
    2. OK, I see... The cue not popped for me.Sp this means my bin is not converted properly. My writing session ended with an error, and the disc playable only for a certain point. Should try on another machine.

      Delete
    3. I may be late but I wanted to correct myself here. I deleted the .cue file that came by default with the patching utility thinking it was generated every time the patching utility was used.

      Here is the .cue file. It is made to work with a BIN named ac3.bin but if you want you can always edit the CUE with notepad. Hope this helps. http://tinyurl.com/nrtxkak

  15. Hi, it appears my comments keep getting lost (not sent or just lost), so I'm gonna post it now. I've been following this project since the very beginning and it's REALLY awesome to see it finally getting close to complete! I've been playing through Disc 1 like crazy, I already completed the whole GR ending with straight A's and I'm about to do the same to the first Ouroboros ending! Thank you so much for this!

    Also, I'll be doing a full playthrough of AC3 IE in 1080P 60FPS using Pete's OpenGL2 plugin for ePSXe and motion interpolation to make it 60FPS in October, when I get my new computer! Until then, enjoy this 720Pm 60FPS preview : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5RH-CU_PKOk

    1. Thanks a lot for your feedback!

      I don't know what's going on with blogspot, I sure didn't see those comments in my inbox, I checked the blog dashboard and nothing there either. Weird...

      Good luck with your playthrough!

  16. I'm very happy to finally see Disc 1 released, I've been eager to get the full AC3 experience as long as I've known how cut down the export versions were.

    I've noticed that the saving system doesn't seem to work, I can't open an existing save when I start the game up. Aside from this, I'm having a great time with it!

  17. First time I played this and I freaking love it!
    Excelent work!
    I hope the disc 2 will be released soon.
