We have to make sure this patch does not break interaction with unaltered/unpatched games. If it works like intended it should be added to the translation patch imho.

This is good work btw. Thank you for sharing!
I did some testing between my emulator and PS2 - I used a game without the Half-width hex edits on the PS2, and with them on the PCSX2. I didn't have any problems in either File 1 or File 2:

-Sending private messages
-Sending mixed messages from the hex-edited game (half-width and full width) in either private message, lobby chat, or in-game chat
-Joining games from either console, with half-width or full-width names
-Joining games that are password protected: although people creating games are going to need to keep in mind that people without the half-width hex edits won't be able to join your password protected games unless you make sure to create the password in full-width mode

Seems to me to work perfectly - if anyone else wants to help confirm?

Also tested it both emulator and PS2 wide, works perfectly aside from the losing text glitch, but that's normal of the Japanese version. Also happens with text-heavy in-game files sometimes, but nothing that makes the player's/team's game crash.

Awesome, thanks. I think this is totally on track to be incorporated into the the translation patch, so we can get as many people as possible on board with it. We'd probably still prefer for patches not to be posted here, but of course if you wanted to release your own Delta patch elsewhere, either in coordination with the translation or independently, and post the link here, that'd be fine.

Better not, if someone wants the patch, they can PM me.

This is absolutely ridiculous. I went here to read about it: https://www.networkworld.com/article/32 ... an-11.html

I really resent any efforts by governmental and non-governmental organizations to restrict any part of the internet that's not causing harm to anyone. Which is why the recent repeal of net-neutrality rules here depresses me (although the fight isn't over, and we're not going to let Ajit Pai, Verizon, and politicians here get away with it so easily). The fight isn't over yet.

I can PM you the patches already combined with the fan translation.

Port 80 and 443 are HTTP and HTTPS, respectively.
Your country is blocking the whole internet?!

I wanted to do adequate testing first before hastily adding it in. By the looks of things, it seems to be working without any major issues.

I’ll update the patches over at resouttrans and include this new addition. I will also include a disclaimer about password locked games so nobody runs into any problems.

Thanks again, Wanwei!

This is so fucking stupid. Why does a country effortlessly makes itself less appealing and inviting to the whole world? Seriously, I'd never set foot on China the way it is.

IKR. The world is going back to what we used to see in history books: even more lame, censored and filled with rights deprivation and constant abuse of power to make people's lives miserable. It's scary to think that we could go back to this age in the blink of an eye.

Wow, these thin letters are awesome!

Though it was a fun gag naming rooms from words of the ready-made EASY, NORMAL, HARD and SP. :D
I'm glad I won't need them anymore.
