chosen not bring to America Rockman EXE: Operate Shooting Star, the "enhanced" port of the original Mega Man Battle Network. However, that's not enough to keep one fan down.
A buddy of mine is toying with the notion of translating OSS into English. However, before work can begin on a patch, he'd like to know if this is something the community would want, otherwise it's not really worth the effort. So, question for you is, would you like an English patch for OSS?
The process of creating a patch would take at least three to four months, he notes. Most of the work involves lifting the script from the original GBA game, making the necessary changes, and translating the new material introduced in OSS that wasn't present in the original game (new dialog, new chips, etc.). Again, this will only happen if he sees quite a bit of positive reception to the idea. What do you think? Sound off in the comments!
Nice but I rather to buy the cartridge from Capcom because I like to collect them as collector's items. I can play it on emulator but it doesnt mean I am happy. I am very disappointment in capcom of usa not to bring it. DISAPPOINTMENT! Japan rules and the best than Capcom of USA -- FOREVER!ReplyDelete
Yes! All I've got is a DSi and i've never played MMBN1, so this would be cool.ReplyDelete
Yes! It is a yes for ever! A job that Capcom has not done, the fans should do! I give my support to Capcom being against or not.ReplyDelete
If he wants to put in the time an effort, I'd play it.ReplyDelete
"I am very disappointment in capcom of usa not to bring it."ReplyDelete
Uh, who said it was CoA's call to not localize the game? Also, all the special features in Star Force 3 that were mostly taken out in the non-Japanese versions? That was CoJ's decision, and CoA didn't want to remove features.
As for the subject at hand, yes I would love to see a translated and properly localized version of Operate Shooting Star. By "properly localized" I mean "use the correct English names for characters damnit" :P
I would play it.ReplyDelete
HELL YEAH! I will like to play this game. I was keep wonder why Mega Man coming to visit to Network. I will be happy to have this game. :DReplyDelete
HELL YEAH! I will like to play this game. I was keep wonder why Mega Man coming to visit to Network. I will be happy to have this game. :DReplyDelete
I'd like to play this game for myself to see what's what. So count me in on those who'd like a translation patch1ReplyDelete
That would be awesome.ReplyDelete
Oh my ! Of course this would be AWESOMEEEEE !!!!ReplyDelete
I am video game developer so if he needs help ... I don't know ...
Hell yeah! there wasn't much to the game but my gameboy is lost and i have a DSi soo yes i would play it!ReplyDelete
Proto, you know damn well I want him to shoot for it. Have him do what Capcom is too lazy to do.ReplyDelete
I'd like one. Translation patch all the way!ReplyDelete
I think it's going to be a tremendous waste of his time (3-4 months, holy moly). Since it's already been illustrated that this game is just Battle Network with a scene added on.ReplyDelete
I'm not against it because that's retarded, but its of my opinion that there's certainly better uses of one's time than localizing this game.
I'm not interested in playing it either way.
I'd love to see this happen, however I do have one question if this becomes a reality.ReplyDelete
Will names and places be left like they are in their original Japanese games (eg. Netto, Rockman.EXE etc) or will he adopt the CoA naming scheme? (Lan, MegaMan.EXE etc)
totally interested... its been a while, i miss exeReplyDelete
Yes. VERY YES.ReplyDelete
He has my support. But I'm really in it more for the extra scnario translation than anything else >>;ReplyDelete
Protodude, could you ask your friend to translate the extra scenario even if he doesn't make an english patch?
Sure I would love a translation patch!! :DReplyDelete
that would be great and then I would see what there saying.ReplyDelete
Lets just hope he goes with the Lan and Megaman.EXE one, Because i'm pretty sure someone else will make a ROM of the game using the Japaneese games, if this guy wont.
Actually, i can also do a translation patch of OSS, as i know the Text Format. I would say Yes because i never played EXE1.ReplyDelete
Just in case Proto's friend doesn't do it, you should LuigiBlood!ReplyDelete
Sorry,but he shouldn't waste his timeReplyDelete
If you want to play MMBN1 in english,you can play it on the GBA
OSS is just the same,with extra scenario (which was terrible)
If he can't rip the text and put it into the OSS cart or something then he really should not waste his time
If NDS emulators were any good, I really wouldn't mind. However, I've really not found anything good. I was disappointed by them not bringing the port over here, but at the same time I think we can all say we were even more disappointed about the port really not being enhanced at all.ReplyDelete
As has been mentioned many times - if you're not going to enhance the port, at least do what was done in the Zero Collection and make it a game collection - I wouldn't have minded a collection of EXE 1, 2, and a mono-version edition of 3 all on one cartridge.
Well if they could figure out the tricky compressions, that would be great alone. The text format for the first game was easy so that shouldn't be a problem. The recompressing might be tricky.ReplyDelete
Yes, please. :)ReplyDelete
Oh, by the way protodude, I'm willing to help out as well, any way I can get in touch with him/her?ReplyDelete
"To the dismay of absolutely no one, Capcom has chosen not bring to America Rockman EXE: Operate Shooting Star."ReplyDelete
Fixed this for you.
I say go for it!ReplyDelete
Um I know this might be a stupid question but, well we play the game like on the internet? Also is this even legal? lol sorry if my questions are stupid :pReplyDelete
@Anon under my comment :ReplyDelete
Yeah but no, because i'm already working on a translation, the french translation of Megaman Zero Collection.
Sure, why not. I'd like to at least know what they're saying in the new SSRockman chapter.ReplyDelete
Yes :) I would be very grateful.ReplyDelete
All the way! I wouldn't say no to an English patch to a Japanese game. It would also be nice to see the original names and no typos in an English game.ReplyDelete
I'd love this patch to. But it makes me laugh at how many people said they'd play it with the patch. Either that, or they willfully admit to being pirates(Not saying I'm not one). Can't use this patch on the physical copy, remember.ReplyDelete
I liked BN1, so I'd play itReplyDelete
Honestly, I'd be against it. OSS is mainly just a port with an extra scene, not a full-blown remake. The option to play the original EXE1 in English is and has been available for years.ReplyDelete
If he does go for it, I would give it a try though, seeing how I never played EXE1.
@Soultrigger: That makes no sense. You'd play it if he did it, but you're against it?ReplyDelete
Why be against it? Why not be neutral?
My vote: Yes please.
I'd love to give it a try.ReplyDelete
I'm glad to see that ur willing to spend time on translating it but it's not worth ur time, many people have already played BN1, some havn't, the best anwser for is download a rom of BN1 and play it on a VBA emulator, plus DS emulators suck and lag like hell. Point is I would not play this game even with a english patch unless someone creates a DS emulator that can run DS games with little to no lag.ReplyDelete
Heh heh, reading through the comment thread I'm having flashbacks to when the game was first announced and the firestorm of Broken Fanbase that descended on the news like a pack of rabid wolverines. Despite the fact that no one knew what the game even WAS yet.ReplyDelete
But yeah, I'd be interested in seeing an English patch.
Also, anyone who says "Just play it on the GBA, it's the same game" clearly doesn't recall that the original EXE is right around 9 or 10 years old now, and Megaman fans that have been introduced to the franchise with the Star Force or ZX games may not have actually PLAYED the first EXE. A younger gamer who cut his teeth on the DS is more likely to play a DS "remake+" than go to the effort of hunting down a game that's one hardware generation and nearly a decade old.
It's not worth it really. If you want to play BN1, buy the game. The extra scenario isn't a good enough reason to make a translation patch for OSS.ReplyDelete
If you don't want it, hold your peace. There are those of us that do want it!ReplyDelete
There are good DS emulators that run without lag. Especially with 2D games like EXE OSS.
"The extra scenario isn't a good enough reason to make a translation patch for OSS."ReplyDelete
For once I agree with this one, but hey if you young people want to play it, then suit yourself. Also, how many times must I say this before you people understand? OSS is NOT a remake, it is both a Port & a Lie. Look up "Zero Mission" & learn the frickin difference.
I'd rather it be translated than just left alone.ReplyDelete
So yeah, I support this 100%.
Whoever's gonna be complaining about this should seriously stop.
Also, for the people who are saying, "Don't do it, it's just EXE1 with a new scenario". I HAVE to say this to you people:ReplyDelete
At LEAST it was SOMETHING NEW. You same people yelled at me when I said that Zero Collection is just ports and barely anything "new" added to it besides a shoddy button-customization add-on and the Mod Cards "turned on". (which could be done back in USA Zero 3s as long as you had an AR or something similar, much like Star Force 3's NKG and Rezon/Purpose cards)
EXE OSS also rebalanced the battle system to be similar to EXE2 and EXE5 put together. Adding (*) code Battle Chips, new voice acting for Rockman, Netto and Subaru/SS Rockman (They are NOT reused voices from EXE5DS. Listen to them, you'll see that they are indeed different), a few of the animations were fixed up and improved, the music is slightly better quality, there's a new multiplayer mode that can be done with Single-card play, the VS mode is MUCH easier to set up now than before, there's Cut-In Counters for dim-screen cards (even Recovery), and of course, there's a brand new character to play as with his own unique play style.
So there you go. That's a lot of new and improved things that made EXE OSS much more worth it than Zero Collection. For all you haters out there, I just broke it down for you.
I would love it.ReplyDelete
Yes please >< I love megaman and I would love to get a tranlsation of OSS even though its almost the sam as BN1 :DReplyDelete
Not worth it. How about just translating the SSRockman add ons and calling it a day? Otherwise the people who don't read Japanese can just play their MMBN1 carts.ReplyDelete
Wow, this article thread exploded.ReplyDelete
Either way, I say do it.
I know there are plenty of people who are unable to go back and play EXE 1, and I'm pretty sure people would rather get a translated ROM of this game rather than the original EXE 1.
Just because OSS did not live up to expectations does not mean that there is no reason to translate this for the community.
And this is coming from someone who ABSOLUTELY HATES OSS.
Translating it would be excellent and I would definitely purchase an Acekard 2i to play it. I say go for it!ReplyDelete
Yes please dudeReplyDelete
yes yes and yes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1ReplyDelete
Saito, those same people have a right to yell at you cause you won't stop saying how awful Zero Collection is.
Many people and fans of the MegaMan Zero series want this game so badly, yet you won't shut up about how bad it is, when it turns out it got good scores.
So please, keep your opoions to yourself.
Translation would be beyond words in terms of awesomeness, It would be so cool if you followed through with this! I would check everyday to see if it's released! Please! :DReplyDelete
I wouldn't mind playing something like that. I say go for itReplyDelete
Go for it!ReplyDelete
I would so use a patch on this game!ReplyDelete
The only reason why EXE OSS "didn't live up to expectations" and so on, is because people basically didn't even know what the game was until the final week before release.ReplyDelete
Why? Much like many people have said, they couldn't understand Japanese. The trailers, interviews, and articles ALL said that the game was a port of EXE1 with some extra improvements.
It's honestly the North American side's own fault for getting disappointed, when they came up with those overly unbelievable scenarios that obviously weren't going to happen, and actually believing they were.
Then getting shocked when they found out it wasn't in there. :/
Heck, I actually liked EXE OSS. I liked it enough that I actually bought the cart when I found it for $12 at an import shop at my city.
I'd rather buy an official Capcom translation, but since that doesn't seem to be happening - go ahead, I think a huge portion of Rockman Exe/MMBN fans would appreciate it :DReplyDelete
Yes bro. Yes.ReplyDelete
OMG please do it!!! it will be super special awesome!ReplyDelete
yes it would be so cool to get this translatedReplyDelete
Haha, it's hilarious when people give their opinion and then tell people to keep their opinions to themselves. Oh what a messed up internet we surf in.ReplyDelete
its disappointing that its not coming on us reason goes same as an anonymous guy who collects megaman game carts, i to collect them :(ReplyDelete
but Yes of Course i don just collect them after all
so please push through with this english translation patch prog
your friend have my full support
Yes! I would love a patch for OSS! Do what Capcom never did! Good luck!ReplyDelete
Let me say this :ReplyDelete
The Text format of OSS uses Unicode (Little Endian).
This was posted in gbatemp as well.ReplyDelete
If your pal wanna do this, then fine. but it's not worth the effort. There are better games who need translations.
Yes this is an awesome idea since i havn't gotten far in bn1 anywayReplyDelete
I have already played through the original BN1 a billion times (figure of speech, I have catually played it a lot less than that, but certainly more than once), So I won't botherReplyDelete
Also, will this fix any mispellings in the original game, like Bombmans dialouge using chatspeak in one part?
Nevermind about the Text Format, the Colisseum Mode uses Unicode, but the game itself uses another format.ReplyDelete
Pleaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaase do it, I was looking forward to a translation patch but I only found an anti piracy one please make it! I've been looking forward to one since I knew that Capcom won't release the US and the EU versionReplyDelete
@the Anonymous who replied to me:ReplyDelete
Sorry, my post indeed contradicted itself. What I meant to say but forgot to mention was that it was not worth the effort of a few months. If people REALLY wanted to play it, they could just play the GBA one. I WOULD play it if he went ahead with the translation seeing how he put the effort into it as well as the fact that the GBA cartridge only has 1 save slot (which my brother took).
The difference between Zero Collection and OSS is what people expect and what people get. MMZ Collection is, well, a "collection." Anybody who's played Mega Man long enough would know it's just a compilation of games with SOME little extras, usually not worth mentioning. Also, there was fan demand for Zero Collection to begin with.
OSS is just a port of 1 GBA game with an extra RnR scene and SOME improvements, which REALLY do not merit another purchase. It may be our own fault for hyping the game ourselves, but Capcom had the potential to make a full-blown remake. Instead, they took the lazy way out and just ported a game that had no porting demand to begin with.
c'mon man! Do it, PLEASE! I would kill to know how to ripa gba rom and a nds rom to copy the ba script and add some things like clockman script! But unfortunately I don't, so I'm begging you to do it!ReplyDelete
Thats true EXE1 wasnt that great and I have the game...why I'm planning to sell it sometime next week.
Just one main question:
Is this even legal and if Capcom catches word of this arent you afraid they might get upset and there might be consequences?
Nice but I rather to buy the cartridge from Cap com because I like to collect them as collector's items.nice game...That was Co's decision, and Co didn't want to remove features.ReplyDelete
yes i want itReplyDelete
yes do it. definitely.ReplyDelete
Yes! I would love for this to happen. I've never got into the Battle Network series and this would be a great introduction.ReplyDelete
Oh Please Im Tired of playing Gay Star ForceReplyDelete
YES!!!!!!! this is the kind of megaman i love, just like the game boy advance one!!ReplyDelete
I've only played battlenetwork 4 and up and I no longer have a gba so this project would be awesome!ReplyDelete
Oh my god! Yes I would Love~ to see it translated, hopefully its completed it will work with the Anti-Piracy Patch too ;o. Other than that concern MMBN1 for DS in ENGLISH? OF COURSE!!!ReplyDelete
YUSYUSYUSYUSYUSYUSYUS DO EETReplyDelete
You should seriously do this patch, I would definately appreciate it!ReplyDelete
Yeah. I would personally LOVE if a patch was made for this game. I was such a huge fan of the series and would like to play this game in English.ReplyDelete
So is he going to do it?ReplyDelete
Does he's making it ?ReplyDelete
I would defenitely get an R4 or something similar to play this if it was patched! Ive consitered importing but i dont have the patience antmore to play with a guide in hand like i used to with other imports.ReplyDelete

I've been waiting for one for months, and still haven't found one.
PLEASE translate it.
I want to play this game so badly...
YES! I never really got any of MMBN1 because the map system was pretty much junk and the battle style could be confusing at best. No doubt they polished that up for this game, and SF content would be icing on the cake. PLEASE MAKE THE PATCH!ReplyDelete

so please come out with an English translation!
i'd soooooooooooo love one.
let me see do i want patch... HELL YES!!! ive been looking foward to this but it never came and for the people who want to know why it didn't get released outsde of japan is because it wasn't popular enough so the makers decided against releasing it to other places and a message to the deciders of this outcome: you are morons!ReplyDelete
Yeah sounds awesome Id play it. I played mmbn as a kid but I started out with mmbn2. I definitely would be happy with playing a remake of mmbn1 :D. If it's too much work though and your friend can do better things he definitely doesn't have to but I'd appreciate it if he did and it looks like others here would too. I do understand if he doesn't though it's his choice after all and things happen.ReplyDelete
YES ive always wanted to play itReplyDelete
I'd be glad to see it. I've grown up with MMBN series since I was in middle school (now I'm college graduated) *_*ReplyDelete

It's a go:ReplyDelete
Corrected link: http://www.rockman-corner.com/2012/02/operate-shooting-star-translation.htmlDelete
What happened o the battle network series where's the final megaman game battle network 7 operation shooting star. This is gonna bring fans down if they see why the japenese don't release i to the usa then canada. That's a preety big disappointment. >:(ReplyDelete
Please make a translation. This is a good thing. We need a translation for OSS!ReplyDelete
You didn't see the WIP (Work-in-progress) download in his Twitter feed?Delete
https://twitter.com/speakyspeaker (Corrected link to his profile)
Assuming Protodude is a he... lol.
I do want to see it in English!!! Please do so and you would make me a very happy gamer!!! I never got to play MMBN1 and I love both Battle Network and Starforce. A super HUGE Thank You in advance :)ReplyDelete
So fast-forward to 2017. Any news about this?ReplyDelete
I know right. I'm looking forward to this game translated.Delete
I am waiting for this as well..Delete
