6th December 2023 - 54.4MB - RAR - Changelog
Updated some of my Source File Help and scripts on how I made the translated version patch files (also included in the download), these may be of use for others to follow in patching the game further.
Here's a video of the game running - https://youtu.be/k6L3w9Bl4i8
The Xbox 360 games Otomedius and Otomedius Gorgeous! were only ever released in Japan in Japanese, this is a quest to translate games into English including all the GUI, text and menus.
This started out as a way to patch an English translation into the arcade release of the game Otomedius.
The arcade release runs on Windows XP Embedded and is more or less a PC game, the Xbox 360 version uses a very similar file layout so translation development has moved onto that version of the game due to the arcade release not working in later versions of Windows due to the games protection.
All the game menus in the game use SWF files (Shockwave Flash), now these have been edited so all weapons, character select, ranking, replay, shop, weapon select and end of stage total screens are now translated to English.
All the DLC has been translated too.
Some of the text is not stored as DDS images and would require hacking the otomedius.xex file, this is beyond my ability at this time.
Intro and Ending movies for each character are WMV movie files, they could be re-encoded with baked in subtitles, something to look into in the future, they are 23 large files at over 2GB total.
The speech will not be translated as I don't have a team of voice actors, this also means the voices used in the game will not be subtitled either.
These files are for the Japanese DVD version of the game (20-11-2008 - VK016-J1), they will also work with the Platinum edition (as the discs are identical), however you will have to rip the DVD yourself.
4B4E07EE is the Xbox internal ID used by the game Otomedius G (Gorgeous!).
You can also get the files from your installed DVD version on your Xbox 360 hard drive.
DVD install directory listed below:-
This patch will not work with the Games On Demand Live download release as three files are different from the disc installed and DVD versions.
Games On Demand directory listed below:-
These three files are different from the disc installed and DVD version and so the game doesn't load in Xenia for an unknown reason (failed checksum maybe?).
Stick with the DVD rip or the installed DVD version.
Developed, fully tested and working on Windows 10 x64 (64bit system) using Xenia Canary.
1. Create a directory 'xenia' in that create 'content' in that create '4B4E07EE' and in that create another called 'DVD':-
2. Copy all the files on the DVD into the 4B4E07EE/DVD directory.
3. To play with the translated files, simply overwrite the files in the game Data directory.
4. Start xenia.exe, in the interface click 'File' and 'Open', browse to the directory and run the default.xex file.
5. The game will start, make sure you have an Xbox control pad plugged in to control the game.
6. Have fun!
I've tested the game on my Windows 10 x64 (64bit system), Ryzen CPU with nVidia GPU.
If you run the above you get the game as it was released on disc (v1.0), now games have updates that might patch bugs or add new features, Otomedius G had one 'Otomedius G Title Update #1'.
This is a little more involved so refer to the Changelog for a detailed guide on how to install them.
Just use a standard Xbox 360 control pad.
