New 'Enhanced' English translated version
Here’s a little project I’ve been working on. I really enjoy the first eXceed game, and thought it was a shame that unlike the other games in the series there wasn’t a good English translated version available anywhere. There was an unofficial beta translation, but it was really buggy and differed from Nyu Media’s translation. So I decided to make a new translated version using Nyu’s official translation along with some additional fixes/features by decompiling and recompiling the original source code.

Just replace exceed.exe with the included file

Features
  • Story Mode can now be selected in either English or the original Japanese language.
  • A new prologue menu item can be viewed to read the backstory to the game.
  • A new text intro is shown at the beginning of story mode.
  • Tinatu’s name has been changed to Chinatsu in order to correctly match the other games in the series.
  • Fixed various spelling typos in the menu of original japanese version.

Enjoy!! And i’d love to hear any feedback!

Works great, and the translation is much improved, thank you!

Patch works great, thanks for your efforts!
I really like how you even went through the trouble of adding the prologue and intro text into the game.

I do encounter a slight text bug here and there, nothing major though. Apostrophes don't seem to render right, but it's easy enough to figure out what's being said. I have my system language set to Japanese if that's of any use.

When I press pause it says soem gibberish in the upper left of the screen, did that part not translate? Maybe it should say "Pause" or something?

Hmm, yes this seems to happen when the system language is set to Japanese. I'll try to look into a solution for it.

I didn't even realize that there was a pause menu :) That should be easy enough to fix..

I'll probably put out a new version to fix these issues soon

There is two english patches now, which one is better? This one seems to have more features. EDIT: nevermind, this is a improvement on that one I see now.

EDIT 2: I created a page for this game on PCgamingwiki and i posted info about this patch, is it okay if i upload it to the site?

This seems really interesting, although I've been playing this game with the "unofficial beta English translated patched .exe" (:P), I want to try yours later when I have more time to enjoy it ^_^

By the way, is there a way to add support for a windowed mode (something like [ALT] + [ENTER] to play the game in a window instead of fullscreen)?

I don't mind, but I might release a newer version to fix the strange characters that sometimes appear if Windows is set to Japanese mode.

It's something i've looked into somewhat, but i'm not sure how feasible it is for this game. I'll probably look into it a bit more though

Thanks for the job, greatly appreciated.

I've been playing eXceed with this EXE during the weekend, and I must say, it's a great improvement over the old English EXE. Great work indeed

A few parts reported by others users need a little work, but nothing too important

Now if you find a way to play it in a window, and/or to keep the correct aspect ratio in 16:9 monitors, and that would be awesome

Thanks!
