Okay then, as we've made a considerable amount of progress this last month, we've decided to finally start a topic in the forums for it.

Ciel nosurge Offline Translation Project

As the topic title and description explain, the goal for this project is the creation of a playable translation patch for Ciel nosurge Offline. Therefore, once the project reaches completion, you all will be able to pop the patch into your PlayStation Vitas and enjoy the game in English.

However, there is the caveat that the account linking and SekaiLink features don't work due to bugs present in the version of the game dump (MaiDumpTool) we're using as our basis, and using an encrypted dump (NoNPDRM) is out of the question because we need to modify the game executable to do the translation properly.

Still, I'll post separate instructions for how to work around these limitations once the patch is released.

Important: The patch will only be playable in a PlayStation Vita that has a firmware version of 3.60, as it requires the installation of the HENkaku homebrew enabler, and the exploits used to install it were patched out in higher firmware versions. Additionally, it won't work in a PlayStation TV due to the game requiring the touchscreen for its controls and the camera for scanning the barcodes that serve to generate the Sharls.

And finally, here are some screenshots of the progress we've made thus far:

We'll be posting updates here whenever a milestone is achieved, so look forward to them!
