This tool fixes a crash, which many people have been wailing about, encountered when fighting Raki in the USA version of Ar Tonelico 2. NIS really made a mess out of the localization of this game ... there are other less deadly bugs, like the IPD contact text, that I might also clean up later.

Note that this tool is implemented as a scanner-patcher so that it will work with any target; run it against the game executable or any uncompressed disc image of the game.

Updated 1.01: This is a command line tool but I added a small delay so that novice users can drag&drop an ISO to it and have enough time to read the confirmation message.
