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.

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?

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.

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?

Re: Oni - Japanese version

Sorry, I lost my login for the last 3.5 years. I still have the disc here. But, its weird to see half Text on the menu using the English patch.

I will post  Pictures soon.

I can make all the files in one .rar file if anyone is interested.

Re: Oni - Japanese version

Yes, unfortunately the game app that we normally distribute cannot display non-English characters, so the text will cut off when it reaches such a character in a string.  We can't promote piracy here, so distributing the full JP game would not be permitted, but you could definitely post some pictures.

Thanks for the images, jp!  That manual and box design look nice.
