Sorry to get back so late. I just finished playing through X's game in X4 on PSP, and, iirc, everything seems to be in order. I want to say that there was an audio cutoff in the ending song, but I'm likely wrong about that. I'll let you know if anything comes up for Zero.

Uploaded the files somewhere else and updated the links on the first post. No project update though, these are literally the same files that were up before.
As I've mentioned there's still a few things to do, but I'm not working on this for now, I have very little free time at the moment.

Since the files are not gonna change for awhile, feel free to make mirrors of the download links in case they go down again when I'm not around.

That's listed as an unresolved issue. I'm glad that's the only thing you ran into. Thanks for reporting back.

I've finally tried this, and it's amazing so far, but one issue that I've not seen pointed out anywhere yet is that the animated cutscenes all have a green hue to them that wasn't there originally:

Original:


Undub Hack:


It's like somehow a hue slider was set some toward green, so all of the hues are shifted in that direction.

It's tolerable, and I'm greatly enjoying everything else but I was wondering if you had any idea how this happened, and if it's possible to correct it at some point in the future?

I haven't played Mega Man 8's patch yet, so I don't know if it's affected or not.

I hadn't even noticed, thanks for pointing it out.
I'm gonna have to check which step is responsible for this (STR to AVI conversion, hardcoding of subs, AVI to STR conversion)

If still necessary, I will be testing Zero's path in X4. X' path, which I played around a year ago, had no problems except one typo in the end (that's already been pointed out here). Let's see how Zero's path will go. I'm honestly surprised this hack hasn't had an official release yet.

If you happen to run into an unreported issue, let me know.  :thumbsup:

It can't be released to RHDN database as it is because of copyrighted assets. I need to write a custom patcher that makes a patch out of USA and Japan bins as sources. Will probably be the first thing I write once I get into python, which I'm planning to do sometime after I finish the next X6 Tweaks release.

FYI, a few months ago I got in contact with the author of the recent retranslation of the PC version, and was able to directly implement his script into my PS1 undub. Seems to be working perfectly, but since there's still many things to finish, I'm saving it for a future final release.

just a reminder, the only issues left are the boss speech cut-offs during the colonel, general and sigma boss fights and the ending song cut off during the ending credits, once all of those are resolved this X4 patch can be considered as complete.

I didn't actually notice anything, not even the cutoffs. I'm now at the very final stage (Iris and General are so god damn annoying/boring).

Try replaying the boss fights I mentioned over and over until you encounter one of the boss speeches, the bosses has 3 or 4 variety of speeches before the start of battle, one or two of their speech lines have audio cut offs which doesn't match the timing of the US rom. the issues still persists even if you play the game on a real hardware, burned the game on a disc and played it on my PS1, same result.

Hello, can you please re-upload the patch for Mega Man X4? The link seems dead, just load ad infinitum. Thanks for the fantastic job, I always dreamed this since I played the original japanese version on my dead, but not forgotten, PS1.  :) ;)

I haven't taken care of those links because I plan to make an update as soon as I'm completely done with my next X6 update. Thanks to DarkSamus, the last major remaining issue (wrong audio track lengths) seems to have been solved. I just haven't taken the time to test it and update the patch yet.

Put the thread on "notify" and you'll know when it's up.

If your game did not crash on the third part of Wily's castle then I guess it's done, haven't tested the patch yet after the v03 update fix has been uploaded on the thread, sadly I'm not planning to apply the undub patch on my rom permanently, still prefer keeping the "Dr Wahwee" dub line for the lols.

That's great news! can't wait to test it out again after a year of waiting.

A new version of the X4 Undub is up. Links and notes on the first post.

v09
- (Fix) Voice clips and ending song should play for the right length now (Credits: DarkSamus993)
- Added a BETA for the NectarHime's Final Weapon localization project, based on Hondoru's retranslation. Edited to match american localization.

I don't have much time to test it at the moment, so I'll leave that up to all of you


As for MM8, the only remaining issue is to rebuild the hack on a newer version of mkpsxiso, which should fix the problems with the ending song (which doesn't play on all platforms the same way, goes out of sync on original hardware).

Another remaining issue is to reencode videos on both projects to not lose color fidelity.

Nice, very nice, finished both routes within an hour, all past issues are fixed including the skipping audios and speeches, the only thing I noticed is just a minor thing which is the translation on the FMV that needs correction.

https://photos.app.goo.gl/ZxzzBm75wVq7Ty6J7

and in this scene where Sigma says "kuso" should have a subtitle (damn it!)
https://youtu.be/Tx8MHN0RNNM

and the FMV color saturation/hue which doesn't match the original unpatched rom mentioned by Metalwario64.

The current release 0.9 can be considered as the complete undub version, but if you still plan to improve/fix the issues mentioned above then the patch can be considered as a proper complete full undub at last, as always, thank you for providing this patch!

Thanks for testing it, and so quickly!

I’ll take another look at the subtitles whenever I reencode the videos  :thumbsup:

you're welcome friend, just used a cheat for one hit death for all enemies, invincibility and hit anywhere to breeze through both story routes under an hour for patch testing sake. Looking forward for the final version release!

Finally, no more "WHAT AM I FIGHTING FOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOR?"

Thank you so much for making this! A great game like Megaman X4 did not deserve to have such a shitty dub. You are a goddamn hero for making this mod, I will be forever grateful of your work.
