Couple of things
« on: May 23, 2021, 02:05:28 PM »
Hey,

Great job with this patch! The perspective correction and allowing mp4 movies are probably the best part.

Couple of minor things I noticed:

1) I keep getting this glitch with the computer in the Lab B2:

The blue overlay on the numbers are missing, so one has to navigate blindly

Wrong numbers and sometimes letters appear at this point

2) The broken battery in the Carrying Out Room B3 uses the wrong texture

These are probably things which come from the original PC versions and not your patch but it would be great if you could look into them.

3) I suppose you added the names of the rooms in English (since they're not in the PSX English version, though I don't know if they are in the english PC version); however sometimes the name of the rooms can't be seen fully, for instance in this case it's missing the floor number at the end, but there are other cases:

4) Did you alter the hangar room where the big crates have to be pushed before the heliport? The Japanese PSX versions are missing 3 crates there but the crates are there in the PC version playing with the patch, so I'm wondering it was like this in the original Sourcenext version or if it comes from the patch.

Thanks!

1) That happens only sometimes on the English translation turned on. No idea how to even trigger it consistently.
2) Out of the scope of the patch.
3) Never happened to me but I'll look into it at some point.
4) That's the English translation applying localization stuff.
Make retro PC ports great again.

I'm really not sure, but the only thing I did differently between one playthrough where it didn't happen and the next playthroughs where it happened was that in the later I was abusing the speed x2/x3 feature and tend to switch to other windows during cutscenes.

I see! Would it be possible to have Original mode use the Japanese version of the room even with the localization patch applied then? That would make the most sense, regardless of how it is in the non-patched PC versions.

I'm not sure it is, now that I looked into it with the help of Fabrizio I was incorrect in saying the battery uses the wrong texture in the PC version. The textures are identical but a special treatment is given to the broken battery on top of the original texture; and by looking at the PC screenshot again, that treatment is there but it just doesn't give the same desired result as it only gives that faded shadowy shape that can barely be seen.

we stay tuned for new updates. a question the texture of the characters can not be more something like this:
