This set of files will allow you to merge both “Final Fantasy Type-0” ISO’s into a single one that will contain the whole game, so no disc swapping will be needed.
I made this with the English Translation Project in mind, as translating a single disc is way easier than translating two with a lot of common files.
Once both disc’s have been merged, it is possible to access all the content in the game, and play through it without changing discs or ISO’s.
I hope you guys enjoy it!
Frequently Asked Questions:
So how is this used, anyway?
In order to create the unified ISO, you’ll need:
-Type-0 UMD (choose one of them)
-Type-0 Merging Files
First download and extract the Merging Files; then open the Final Fantasy Type-0 UMD you chose with UMDGen. Navigate through all the folder the game contains and each time you find a file present in the Merging Files, replace the original one with it. They are five files in total.
Then simply save the new ISO file in UMDGen and you’re ready to play!
But I don’t see the New Game option! How do I start a new game?
As titles menus are different in both discs (only disc 1 allows to start a new game), I replaced the data install program option from disc 2 for a New Game option. Simply go to “Options” in the title menu and there you can start a new game.
Then what’s up with the Installation feature?
There is no point in installing the game: when the original game installs, the data is encrypted before being written to the MS. This makes the install data slower than running
the game from an ISO file. This is why I replaced its entry in the tile menu for a New Game option.
The game is not running OK, it can’t boot or some videos are not playing!
For the third version of the Merging Files, I decided to include untouched video files, to achieve the maximum quality. This makes the final ISO go over 2GB. Most PSP firmwares have problems addressing games bigger than that. In order to have a full experience, you’ll need to use the “Inferno UMD Driver”, present in Custom Firmware PRO. So simply update your PSP firmware and you should have no problem playing the game 😉
