Title: Metroid Other M
Post by: AlfredoDore on March 19, 2022, 09:06:50 AM
I need help in Metroid Other M, I successfully changed the English dubbing to Japanese in the game, the problem now is the FMV, the Japanese audio is hidden in the European iso (game in Spanish) and in the Japanese iso you can choose the audios between English and Japanese, what I want to know is where are the FMV audios

I'd like a remake that fixes the story issues that still remain in the Japanese version and use that as the base for a possible new English dub and have it have better voice acting in English.

well, I wish, I saw that within the Japanese ISO there is support for other languages (including mine which is Spanish) so I think it's easier if I replace the subtitle file https://i.ibb.co/5cfBLFz/Metroid-Other-M.png

I've been working on Other M stuff during this year:
https://gbatemp.net/threads/metroid-other-m-maxximum-edition.602301/

The game does offer multiple languages, and the US release includes the Japanese files. I believe it changes between English or Japanese depending on a flag of sorts. I haven't touched anything regarding the Japanese stuff, but perhaps something in my thread could help you out.

I'll look, but I noticed and saw that the Japanese ISO has support for several languages, if I find the subtitle files, I just replace them

All subtitles for all languages are inside the message_all.dat file.
The only thing I have yet to figure out is how to change at what time each of them appears, since I need that for my project to move subtitles around in certain cutscenes.

Open the DAT file in a Hex Editor and you should see the lines in ASCII format.
Simply overwrite them with what you want and that should do it, it worked for me when I blanked out some subtitles for removed lines on my reworked cutscenes for the project.

I'm just unsure about the fonts, here are some fonts spoken in Hexa

The GBATemp thread has a mirror link of the whole hack that I uploaded to Archive.org, so it's easily available now.

Wii games rarely come with patches that I know of, you'll most likely find software that patches in the changes, or get the fully patched ISO.

In this case, you have to download the whole zip file and follow the instructions to make an ISO with the zip files using Wii Backup Fusion.
The instructions are in the very same Archive.org page.
