    Hey guys, completely new with modding, and I don't want to anger anyone with my nooby question, nor am I asking for a fix, I merely want advice. So I recently purchased a fat playstation 2 and softmodded it, purchased a japanese copy of kingdom hearts FM, since I had heard there was a patch online that allowed you to burn the disc onto your computer, patch the iso to translate it, and then burn it onto another disc and play it on a softmodded ps2. At first it ran flawlessly, no stuttering, no hangups, no lag, nothing. the text was a little small, but that was a small price to pay, anyways here's the actual problem I had:

    occasionally when attempting to load a cutscene, the game will just crash, it will play the ambient noise for that scene but will stay black. at first I would just play through the scenes that crashed on the original disc but then they started happening more often. (twice in halloween town). I tried burning it onto another disc thinking it might have just been a bad disc, but it froze at exactly the same area. I tried a different language patch, and that one would crash as soon as I tried to load a game or start a new one.

    What would you guys suggest I do? to my knowledge there's no way to cut out the cutscenes altogether to prevent the crashing. I tested the second patch on an emulator and it didn't have the same problems.

    I've only ever tried running the modded game over USB but maybe you could try different discs? Cheaper-made discs that aren't burned correctly may not work as well. You have to remember also that the KH1 patches, no matter who made them, are in varying degrees of completion and so some issues will persist until they're properly finished, if ever.

    I know that's not a lot to go on, but I hope that helps a little.

    ah, I tried that, the crashes were in the same place, interesting to note though, it seems as if the crashes that some people are mentioning on here never happened to me.

    edit: almost all the crashes happened in halloween town though, I wonder what it is about the cutscenes there that make it so unstable.

    Hey all. just wondering if Gledson999 or sora6645 or anyone ever finalized the English patch or did a revision with the Kurt Ziza bug fixed? Also it seems that some of the earlier links are no longer good. Is there a fresh link for the latest version of the patch?

    Can anyone please provide me a new link? The old link from Mega doesn't work.

    I heard about both Gledson's patch and Crazycat's patch and I want to know about the bugs in both Crazycat's patch and Gledson's patch

    Did you try those links that I listed above? I know the links on the first page are long since dead/bugged but I can confirm that these links all still work; Crazycatz's are the first two, gledson's is the last. And no, since there's been no updates posted, no news on any bug fixes or changes, sadly.

    Speaking of. Did you ever get around to fixing this during that holiday? Didn't want to pester you too often, but I think it's been long enough for me to ask again.

    There's crashes in both of them in different spots; text alignment problems that don't effect gameplay but look bad, I *think* the Ursula boss fight is still bugged in Crazycatz's patch (unable to lock on the the cauldron), and I remember some people saying way back that at some point they'd trigger a cutscene in Traverse Town and, once it ended, they'd be teleported to the big Kingdom Hearts door at the end of the game.

    I never finished my playthrough of gledson's build because my college classes started back up and work took up more of my free time, but comparing the two patches on a file-by-file level, gledson's at least has Traverse Town and Hallow Bastion included.

    Is there an undub patch for this? I've always wanted to have the novelty of playing on the original language.

    If there isn't what are the ways I can go about creating my own undub?

    See the following quoted thing for the mediafire link. Just plug the .vset files in over the ones you have after you extract your own ISO and you should be good to go. It's been a long time since I've used this so just shout if anything is missing.

    Actually I think I've used that undub patch already, it's missing the enemy battle quotes (i.e. Riku, Tidus, Squall, etc) and the FMV cutscenes. Is it normal for these files to be missing? The person said the only untouched files were the Xemnas cutscene and Squall Hollow Bastion quote.

    I'm a dummy. The battle quotes are stored inside of the characters' models, if you can believe that. So the solution there would be dump the enemy models from the original Japanese release of Kingdom Hearts when they all spoke Japanese, and replace the Final Mix models. Note that the filenames themselves for the npcs *may* be different (it's been over two years since I last tried swapping Final Mix<->Non-Final Mix around) so just be careful if you try to do a straight drag-n-drop.

    The FMV movies would be the same basic thing; they're on that disc.

    I actually can't find an actual japanese ISO of the original game. I've extensively searched the web for it and I've even requested ISO links on EP.

    I might resort to actually importing the physical game from japan, is it possible to burn a PS2 disc into an ISO?

    Making an .iso image from a disc? Yeah, that's how they're made. You can use imgburn, Alchohol 120%, Daemon tools; all sorts of things to make an image.

    I will be busy for the rest of the night but hold off on importing just yet. Per official forum policy I cannot endorse the downloading of isos since that is piracy and is illegal but let me see if I can find my old laptop. I'll be busy for the rest of the night writing something but I might be able to dig something useful up.

    So far I'm not having any luck with undubbing this or patching this game at all. I've tried adding in files separately (i.e. I'll only import .dat files, .mdls files, .vset files, etc) and the game still crashes.

    I've even tried adding in Gledson's patch by itself, the game still crashes. I don't know what I'm doing wrong.

    important part translated (google): Hello to all my friends, partners, first I come here to thank for the affection of all of you that makes me more willing to translate, but now I am here explaining that I am temporarily unable to continue with the translations because I am without a computer.

    Okay I got to play through all of Gledson's patch and some of sora's patch

    Gledson's is mostly good except there's a text glitch when obtaining (High Jump/Mermaid Kick/Glide/Superglide) and a little audio problem during the final cutscene where Sora says, "Kingdom Hearts is light."

    Sora's patch so far has more issues but has a sick widescreen patch which indirectly fixes my issue with the japanese FMV where the black borders look all glitched up. A few examples include:

    - Villain cutscene after Traverse town boss has messed up text or things that don't belong such as "The castle door gates should be open" and this also makes the audio messed up cause all the villains talk at once.

    - Raft naming issues, also Riku says highwind but if you lose the race, it becomes garbled text.

    - Chest text issues

    I am also in the middle of perfecting an undub patch. As soon as I fix major freezes from that I will link it here.

    Sora's YouTube channel went down. It's probably a Disney cease and desist letter.

    Hi.

    I've just came here to post my thanks to Gledson for making an awesome translation patch to Kingdom Hearts 1 Final Mix. I've been wanting to play this game for years, but never had a chance to until now. I've played through it all, got to watch the exclusive cutscenes in English that I never got to see, and have managed to beat Xemnas.

    Even though there are some glitches, like not getting Encounter Plus or Zansetzuken, and Ansem Report 11, those weren't game breakers for me. I was still able to obtain Ultima Weapon without fail, which I am quite happy with.

    Thank you Gledson!

    Did you have any problems viewing the Riku cutscene after getting Oathkeeper?

    The scene where Riku appears in a void, and a mysterious voice (which I think is King Mickey) is replying to him? That cutscene played perfectly without any problems for me.

    However, the ending cutscene where Sora says, "Kingdom Hearts is light" did glitch on me. It wasn't much of a turnoff to me, but more of a minor nuisance. As long as I was able to still view the cutscene and understand what was going on, that's all that matters to me.
