Geppy-X – Audio Transcript Help
« on: April 05, 2021, 02:29:48 pm »
I’ve been working on a full transcript for Geppy-X on PS1, since outside of memory card menus, the game doesn’t really have any text to dump, just graphics & audio.
I’m requesting some assistance in transcribing a couple line fragments I can’t nail down for a myriad of reasons.

VIDEO LINK (not mine): https://youtu.be/MmYkYr4l2mU?t=110 (1:50-2:23 if link doesn’t start there)

CONTEXT: Nameless villagers in Hokkaido (and thus, using Tohoku dialect) huddled for warmth as their region is plunged into an ice age by the villains’ plot of the week.

Caption     北海道 某所
Man A        |xxxxx!| 今年の冬は|xxxx|だよー!
Man B        くそっ!こりゃ宇宙悪魔帝国の仕業に違えねえ!
Townsfolk  *murmuring* 違えねえべ!(one voice picked out from the crowd)
Man A        爺様、どうすべ?
Man B        どうすべよ!
Elder          ゲッPーエックスを呼ぶだ!
Townsfolk  *murmuring*
Elder          すぐに、|xxxx|見るんだ。

The rest of my work on this game is compiled in this spreadsheet:
https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1sVR-uWNWuadBdVavoC0-KiLLoXkZKjUXFWQuvR2aTPY/edit?usp=sharing

This isn’t the only scene with gaps (the others are scattered throughout the game, highlighted in cyan on the sheet), but y’know, one thing at a time. 
Any help is appreciated.

Hi,

Man A:こう寒くっちゃ、今年の冬は 越せねぇだよ

Elder:すぐに、電話してみるだ。

I hope it helps  ;)

Thank you!!  :o
Like I said up top, that was far from the only chunk I’ve been unable to make out, so if it’s not too much to ask,
if I were to post more segments like the first, could you take a look/listen?

I'm posting a couple more segments, which should wrap up the first 3 episodes.

 EPISODE 1 (BOSS A)
 https://youtu.be/--nSXK_Q5i8?t=348 (5:48-5:56)
 As you face the first boss, the Type-64 Robo, another robot piloted by a pair of soldiers, steps in to handle things. They are completely out of their league…
Midosuji              まてまって!
Midosuji              xxxxxxを下がってなさい!
Midosuji              ロクヨン・ビ―――――ム!!
Kitahanada          隊長!ビームが効きません!

These two have given me the most trouble, especially in their own sidestory...

EPISODE 3 (Ending)
https://youtu.be/MmYkYr4l2mU?t=626 (10:26)
VIDEO: After all is said and done, two weird creatures (apparently Aroma’s mascots) pop out of the remains of the Mammoth Beast and swear revenge.

Pink      うおお。ゲッピーエックスめ!
Pink      xxxxxxてらしゃい!
Purple   お兄たま!待って!待ってください!
Pink      うほい!
Purple   ほいさっと!

Again, all help is appreciated.

So I’m back with a few more segments. Made a bit of extra headway with a couple discoveries that made my life a bit easier:
1. A fan-made(?) radio play script adaptation of the first disc. (Text is there, dark BG is missing.)
2. This blog post transcribing the alternate previews from the second loop of the game (a godsend!)

Overall, my transcript is 95% complete at this point. Doesn't feel like it with the number of gaps left, so here I am again.
I’m including links to .wav rips of the audio ripped from the discs, as old videos might not be the best audio quality. But even raw, they’re still full mixes (all sfx/music baked in).

EP. 1 - Boss Event
(YouTube, 5:48-5:56) (audio, .wav)
As you face the first boss, the Type-64 Robo, another robot piloted by a pair of soldiers, steps in to handle things. They are completely out of their league…
Midosuji       まてまって!
Midosuji       xxxxxxを下がってなさい!
Midosuji       ロクヨン・ビ―――――ム!!
Kitahanada   隊長!ビームが効きません!

Ep. 3 END
(Video, .mp4)
VIDEO: Two goofy-voiced creatures (Aroma’s mascots, apparently) pop out of the remains of the Mammoth Beast, swear revenge, and ride off on unicycles.  :P
Pink       xxxx ゲッピーエックスめ!
Pink       xxxxxxてらしゃい!
Purple   お兄たま!待って!待ってください!
Pink      うほい!
Purple   ほいさっと!

Again, any help is greatly appreciated.
