Hi, first post, so apologies if this is the wrong place or if I've done anything else wrong.

I did try searching the site, and even the internet as a whole, for information on this topic, however I couldn't find a solid answer.

I was wondering if it's possible to swap out the music in the US release of Sonic Gems Collection for Sonic CD for the Japanese files to use the original Japanese/European soundtrack, but with English language text and such.

I would just use the Japanese version, but I'd prefer the English text and translations. I don't care about the extra games in the Japanese release as I have other ways of playing them.

I've gotten as far as extracting the CVM file which contains the music and video files, however a straight swap of the Japanese version with the US one freezes Sonic CD on selecting the game, and while I can extract both the AFS audio and SFD video files, I can't seem to work out how to recompile them into the ISO, if that's even possible.

I know it may seem like a pointless project, but I think I'm just wondering if what I'm trying is even possible, and would gratefully welcome any input from people who may have a better idea of where to go from here.

Is there a reason you can't play the original game?  We have a patch that does exactly what you want to the Mega CD version.
The great achievement is to lose one's reason for no reason, and to let my lady know that if I can do this without cause, what should I do if there were cause?

Thanks for responding. I have considered that, but I mostly wanted Sonic Gems Collection so I can have Sonic CD, Sonic R, and Sonic the Fighters covered together, especially since I don't think the latter two can be played on Gamecube/Wii any other way IIRC.

I'd also be open to an English translation of the Japanese version of Sonic Gems Collection, if that's easier, but I'm not sure.

If what I'm after is too difficult, that's fine, I was just curious if it was possible.
