Wait so what is that a japanese version of Maken X with english subtitles hacked in? Just asking because I know that Western versions of Maken X were heavily censored and I never liked that, it would be cool if what you are offering here is a japanese version with english subtitles, is that what this is?

EDIT: Nevermind, tried it with Flycast emulator and it appears to just be the US version swapped with japanese audio, plus there's another problem is that the file format is ".chd", to try it on original hardware I would have to burn it on a CD-R but no burning software accept .chd file format, most Dremcast games are in ".cdi" format.

@Lycian14 Honestly, the "heavily censored" statement is blown way out of proportion.

The format is not a problem. CHDMAN can decompress the chd image back to gdi and you can manipulate it form there however you like, although I goofed the cue file, so the game probably won't work as a burned cdi image. I'll try fixing the cue file and have another go with the problematic cutscenes a bit later on.

@bad_boy_bailey IIRC you may need to rename the .gdi file to "disc.gdi", open it with a text editor and change the track names to "track01.bin", "track02.raw", etc., and also rename the track files accordingly. If it's possible to make an oversized CDI to avoid any data loss, then converting the game into that format might be a valid workaround, too.

      Give reaction or reply to this topic to see the hidden content. Undubbed completely. In comparison with another undub out there in the wild, this one features fully restored Japanese voice clips, subtitled intro FMV, adjusted cutscene audio length to prevent crashes after some cutscenes, a full-length "bike key" FMV + its "costumed" variations are now undubbed.
      Notes:
      ※ The Japanese version uses more sfx voice clips in several audio banks, so those extras didn't make it into this undub.
      ※ A handful of the non-cutscene voice clips had to be either slightly downsampled or had their silent parts at the end trimmed.

      Notes:
      ※ The subs are timed to the English voice track and they're often not too faithful to the original Japanese script.
      ※ The Japanese lip-sync wasn't carried over.
      ※ The Japanese version uses more sfx voice clips across the board, so those extras didn't make it into this undub.
      ※ A handful of the non-cutscene voice clips had to be either slightly downsampled or had their silent parts at the end trimmed.
      If you're playing in widescreen (pls don't) and/or using cheats on PCSX2, be sure to rename your pnaches to reflect the modified executable's new checksum:
      "5848889C.pnach" -> "5A1410AB.pach".

      There's no other action-adventure game quite like this one, give it a try if you haven't yet.
