Oni - Japanese version

Hi all,

I have been lurking here for 5 years now. Now I have finally obtained the Japanese version of Oni via amazon.

I will some photo's this or next week.

I have a lot of bugs using the English patch........

Re: Oni - Japanese version

Hey there.  The Japanese version looks the same as the English, doesn't it?  As far as I know, only the dialogue was changed.  It's cool that you got a copy, though.


byproducts are fine, but where's the beef?

Re: Oni - Japanese version

japanese version of oni is definitely rare especially the mac version. but still not as rare as japanese pathways into darkness. in 10 years of collecting japanese pc & mac games i have only seen 2 copies of pathways.

Hah, wow, I wouldn't have even thought that Bungie was localizing for the Far East back then.

Re: Oni - Japanese version

Since 3 years I try to learn Japanese.
I would be happy to be able to play Oni with japanese language.
I own 2 PC versions from Rockstar and Green Pepper and a PS/2 version, but unfortunately none in Japanese.

I do not know how many Japanese members there are in the Oni Central forum.
Would it be possible and legally to create a Oni AE mod for Japanese language output?


ONI is the best game in the universe!

Re: Oni - Japanese version

Such a mod was attempted, but I think it ran into technical issues on the font side of things.  Unfortunately it would not be legal to distribute it.  Look for an email, I'll tell you a bit more about the issue.

Re: Oni - Japanese version

I had a version of it that worked just fine. Did it get removed from mod depot? If that's the case, should probably take down http://mods.oni2.net/node/15 too.

Re: Oni - Japanese version

No, that's fine.  That's a text-only mod.  A full localization mod would contain audio and potentially translated textures, which is a lot of data to be distributing freely.

I got a thing in the mail today - some guy emailed me because of a comment I made either on somebody's blog or niconico years ago. Wonder where these copies were when I last looked?

Great stuff Gumby. Can you check the data on that disk? Anything interesting?

Re: Oni - Japanese version

I'd also be curious to look at the game application to see how it's been modified for displaying Japanese.  I can still run original Oni on my G4.

Re: Oni - Japanese version

You should have asked me that a few years ago when I had the dumps of the oni jp version on my pc, sigh.

Re: Oni - Japanese version

Isn't the disc in this copy readable?  And would you mind doing some scans of the box and its contents for our collection on the wiki?
