Checked with the Mednafen team and it looks like a bug in sound initialization on the title screen that somehow creates an issue in those particular fights. They know about the bug at least.Thanks, ill take a note on the black songstress’ song just in case. Im going to be taking a bigger look at the sound driver (I need to in order to fix SSSC), so there may be more sound fixes to come. The sound during boss fights may be a mednafen issue, as we didnt change those.
Are you on the latest firmware? There havent been any crash reports from mode users on that sound sample yet, but im not sure who has played 1.5.1 with mode. The next time i work on the game im going to take a bigger look at the sound driver, there are some odd things going on. For now the easiest way to get past it is to save prior to the crash, load the game using the subtitle version or original jp version, save just past the crash, then run the dub version again and load your save. The saves are all compatible between versions.I have been playing the dubbed version 1.5.1 in cue + single bin format on the TerraOnion M.O.DE. and have encountered a game crashing bug. When the boat is leaving Saith and the screen fades to black the game gets stuck with the music playing on a blank screen. I tried converting the bin + cue to a ccd file with SegaSaturnPatcher with no success as I encountered the same bug.
Yeah, one of the people on the project is looking at fixing some of the more ridiculous references. No timeline to give though because their free time and mine are pretty much zapped for now. If someone wants to do their own complete retranslanslation theyre welcome to have the jp text dump.
It's everything from the PSX Working Designs localizations and not a retranslation from the ground up.
All the typical dumb ass pop-culture references are there. The Sword descriptions have jokes about "how size matters". It's horrible.
It really is a shame.
