Rockman EXE 4.5: Real Operation is an action role playing game for the Nintendo Gameboy Advance. The game was released in Japan only.
This patch fully translates Rockman EXE4.5: Real Operation, also known as Mega Man Battle Network 4.5, into English. All text and images in the game are translated, a number of bugs in the original game have been fixed, and some new features have been added. In addition, this translation patch is able to connect with the English versions of Mega Man Battle Network 4.
This translation is a joint effort by members from Mega Man Battle Network fan community, The Rockman EXE Zone. The game has been localized faithfully to the other official Capcom localizations of the Mega Man Battle Network games at the time. Two versions of the patch are available: a North American version and a European version, featuring different title screens and some minor differences like date/time formats.
The download on Romhacking.net includes just the translation patch itself. A number of extra materials such as the box art, instruction booklet and developer interview have also been localized into English. These can be downloaded from The Rockman EXE Zone website.
Source code for the patch is available in the archive, as well as online at: https://github.com/RockmanEXEZone/MMBN45-English-Translation

User Review Information
This game has so much to do but I have little time!Reviewed By: Ziko on 28 Oct 2019
4.5 was a game that a lot of us never got outside of Japan and thanks to a dedicated team we were graced with this beautiful game. Unlike other entries in this series, there is no Lan to control as you are given “control” as the Operator this time around with 21 Navis at your disposal. You only start with 4 but can unlock more as you beat the official tournament in the game and Bass.exe is unlocked if you win the Undernet tournament.
The minor caveats of this game are the repetitive nature of it as all Navis’ chip folders do not carry over from one to another and you’d best remove the chips you want to use if you’re switching Navis when jacked out. Also, you don’t have control over the Navi proper which can be a frustrating experience in serious battles but another patch was updated to make the game feel more like the classic series before it which I’ll link at the end of this review.
Music-wise, the game is interesting in that all sans a few Navis have remixed songs when in the PET which I thought was a nice touch. The battle music and net themes were nice to listen to as well. Graphically, the game is about the same compared to its predecessors and successors so other than a few things here and there, it’s the same experience.
This game was a long time coming and now we in the west can get a sense of what it feels like to have control over our own digital avatar.
