Hack of OutRun 2


The original release of this game was already in English, but the updated version that later came out in Japan that included performance improvements and enhanced content never saw an English release of any kind, even via a Title Update from Xbox Live.

This patch changes the updated Japanese version to now be in English. Specifically, it changes the default script to the English one, updates it for compatibility with the new pointers and lines, reinserts the original font, and updates all image-based text to be English as well.

In terms of content, this includes all in-game text, all menu text (even that for Xbox Live), and also includes all the Gallery text, which even has new content that was not in the US/EU original versions.

A first for me and happy I did it!

I had never hacked a Xbox game before but decided to give this a go as I have a softmodded Xbox and am a huge OutRun fan. I’m glad I took the time to do it. The Japanese version is a definite improvement over the US version with all the things added to it (track improvements, the addition of the original Arcade OutRun, etc.). Now you can actually read all the menus which makes navigating through the game much easier. I had the US version on my Xbox but deleted it since this version is superior. Well done!
