Setting up the Joker 3 English Patch (ATTN Plattym3)


Recommended Posts

Hey all, I'm having trouble setting up the English Patch. I did all the "pre-work" of installing Luma, etc., and am now going through the instructions on https://gbatemp.net/threads/translation-dragon-quest-monsters-joker-3.492313/

I've done everything successfully up to the instructions to "Run the HackingToolkit9DS.exe", but I'm not exactly sure how to do that. I'm on a MacBook Pro; I've downloaded the v9 of Hackingtool like the instructions tell me to, but I'm a bit lost on what to do next. Can anyone help me out? Thank you!

You will need either a computer with Windows on it, boot camp, or vm. Not sure if Wine would work with the program or not.

Yeah, that's a Windows executable. You'll need to use a Windows computer to do that. You can install Windows on modern Mac computers, but based on the fact that you didn't recognize it's a Windows executable, it'd probably be easier for you to just do it on a friend or family member's computer.

Sorry I just saw this, Matt!

Yeah, I did this all on a PC. Found the ROM online prepatched and used Citra with zero issues. Are you trying to play on your Mac or eventually on a modded 3DS?

Sorry for the late reply! I'm trying to play it on a modded 3DS. Had to shelf this for a while until I had access to a Windows computer, but this computer (Windows 7) doesn't seem to be extracting the files correctly, and even after downloading the HackingToolkit (v.9) I can't find the "HackingToolkit9DS.exe" anywhere; when I try to run some of the files in the download it says I need to install "SetupUS.exe" but I can't find that anywhere either.

Unfortunately I'm no good when it comes to that. Finding prepatched games and hoping they work is about the extent of my expertise.

You'll want either PackEnglishv9.rar or PackFrancaisv9.rar. When you extract the one you downloaded open the folder Pack{Language}V9 then open the folder PackHack. The installer will be either SetupUS.exe or SetupFR.exe run it then run HackingToolkit3DS.exe.
