Title: Idolmaster (X360) appears to be translated?
Post by: RetroProf on November 13, 2021, 09:59:27 am
I thought I'd made a topic on this, yet searching brings up nothing. I also don't think my topic was deleted, since I had no warnings. Clearly I never made a topic. Is this... THE MANDELA EFFECT?

Anyway...

The user "zzzzzzzzz" on YouTube extracted the text, translated it, then stuck the files back in his JTAG console and uploaded videos:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QrtktZGLDB0

There's quite a few of these videos.

Googling brings up zero info though. A reddit thread on a different installments, some comments on a forum about the PSP version, etc. But nothing on the original Xbox 360 version, apart from these videos.

Was there a website?

Has anyone actually played this - is it real?

I have an Aurora modded X360 and it's been very easy to patch games, add trainers, or even hacks (the DOAX2 nude patch is real - though pointless). Basically once installed you can see all the raw files and then just replace files as needed.

However, I've seen no news on X360 fan-translations. This is the only one I am aware of, but the only source is some YT vids. And the YouTuber doesn't reply to messages.

Anyone have any info?

the project was never finished and nothing ever came out from this project
I would love to finally play this series, but I think too much time passed and too few people care about im@s anymore to translate such a text heavy game

The SP games for PSP are receiving fan translations, same thing for Starlit Season and One For All. I assume people are just not interested in playing a difficult to find Xbox 360 game from 2006, since there are much better versions

the transaltion of the psp games is incomplete and it's dated 2012, when im@s was actually relevant
the new steam game only has a proof of concept as for now, while it was actually a surprise the OFA translation project but I'll wait for the DLCs to actually play it

Thanks. That's a shame, because the Youtube videos look pretty extensive.

I just wish the translator/hacker had put their files online, unfinished or not, so people with modded systems could test them out.

I've never played an Idolmaster game, but I like management sims (still holding out for a fan translation of "The Conveni" on X360). And if I'm going to play such a game, I'd rather the X360 than the PSP versions.

Anyway, thank you all for the info. Maybe someday in the future the partial translation will surface.

In this case, you're better off waiting for the One For All and Starlit Season translations. They're much better games in multiple ways -Unless you're nostalgic-, and the cast of idols is bigger
