Greats news for Disaster Report lovers: as you may heard, Granzella (game studio formed after Irem closing doors) has acquired Zettai Zetsumei rights... so we hopefully see more releases soon! If you consider yourself a true fan, please buy their products in order to make them grow like the cactus in their official website: http://www.granzella.co.jp/ http://granzellagames.com/ Thanks to Disaster Report 3 translation team for the info. Maybe finally Summer Memories will see the light... and Steambot Chronicles 2 anyone? !!! UPDATE: See end of post!!! Just announcing the WIP "localization fix" of this two PS2 gems. Will be released here at assembler; so if you're a fan, keep tuned. Why to do this? Here's the project's origin and motivation: http://www.assemblergames.com/forums/showthread.php?52579-Help-with-DAT-file In one hand, we got the Zettai Zetsumei Toshi (NTSC-J) english translation. There's a considerably big amount of files to translate (about 70) but the game doesn't really have much text, actually. In the other side, I introduce you my therapy for relaxing from "translating headaches": Raw Danger (NTSC-U) texture mod. Notice there's a LOT of face textures... some for cutscenes, others for gameplay and even unused or leftovers. So let's take this mod the easy way. I remember the promise of showing unused content: I will, but I'm too busy at this moment to get to it. Thanks for understand. I'm focusing on respect the original texture design for main cast, but being more imaginative with npcs. No more clones with moustache. Hope you like the new Master Waiter, Major Tanabe and Akira Tsuge face skins... Expect japanese voice acting, english text, new & unseen intro (hidden in ntsc-j disc), original characters/places names and modded textures for main cast and npcs (ntsc-j original textures with some details added). A very important addition: Irem closed just the next month to 2011 Japan Earthquake, it's widely known that the catastrophe took them personally. I think everyone with a heart an a soul take this in a personal way... it's clearly one of those things that makes the world to abruptly awake, become one if you like. So and fearing not being cheesy, I call this my personal tribute to Irem and specially Japan. Not "Director's Cut", "Enhanced Version" or such labels: This is not my work. This is Kazuma Kujo, Maki D. and a lot of hard-workers creation. I'm just an unemployed guy with too much free time (and a kind of obsession with this saga, I agree). Special thanks to: pool7, krat0s, SILENT_Pavel and Luigi Auriemma for make it happen. !!! UPDATE: 21/03/2015 Finally, for anyone who expected it, here it is: Raw Danger UNDUB patch. Tested & working on real PS2 hardware. No crashes in none of the scenes, just a little glitch on Sophia's hair transparencies I couldn't managed to solve due the texture restrictions (but this glitch isn't very obvious). Added: - Japanese voices. - Original characters textures. - Kanji signs, newspapers, media, etc. - Some items textures are changed to their alternate japan version (the Columbia Sports backpack, whistle and compass). - Original title screen. However I didn't added any censored, beta, or custom content. This include my fancy texture mod, wich gone wrong in some points with npc's skins stored in different levels files, so scrapped the skin mod in the name of concordance between characters look. Anyways, the original japanese textures are alright and look better than the US/PAL releases. The last bad new is about characters, places names. They still all the same; I'm done with the texture/audio mod and this game script is a lot bigger than his predecessor, please understand. If anyone is interested, I got most of the japanese names gathered (cast and places). This is a xdelta patch, for use with Raw Danger (SLUS-21501). For OpenPS2Loader usb boot, store the iso in DVD folder and defragment.

Disaster Report UNDUB patch incoming and this time everything is back to original, included names (thanks to it reduced cast). Only need a hardcore testing from beginning to end for release soon.
