    Section 1: Frequently asked Questions

    1. What is Oh! Text Hooker and Atlas?
    Oh! Text Hooker is a neat little program that basically hooks onto a process and grabs the text from it. While it may sound like it doesn't do much, when coupled with a translation software like Atlas it becomes a very powerful tool in translating text from many programs. In this case, it is used in translating Japanese PC games from Japanese to English.

    2. Which version of OTH will work with Atlas?
    The latest version of OTH, Ver. 1.0 is the final build. In order to use it with Atlas, you will need the proper Atlas plugins for it. For convenience, I've compiled a stripped version of OTH w/ Atlas plugins. You can get it here. (Note that this version will only work with Atlas. No other plugins are included)
    3. Ok, I have the game and the programs. How do I use it?
    There is an step by step walkthough in the next section. Just follow the simple instructions to get it working with your game.
    4. Help! My game doesn't work!
    While OTH/Atlas is a powerful tool for translating games, it doesn't work all the time. There are many PC games with that do not work due to the fact that it's not OTH friendly. To put it bluntly, it's either hit or miss.

    If you would like to save yourself the frustration of finding which games will work, there is a growing list of games that have been tested to work and not work with OTH. Just scroll down to Section 3: The Oh! Text Hooker List of Compatible and Incompatible Games to view the full list.
    5. I want to help with the list! How do post my games?
    If you would like, you can add to the growing list by posting your experiences with a game you've recently played to help out the community. Please read the guidelines before posting your experiences.
    6. Who wrote this FAQ?
    A web designer with too much time on his hands? Mah~ Before it was anime that took up this poor soul's time at work, now it's playing games like Clover Hearts, Canvas2 and Operation Sanctuary on his notebook (now dubbed the ren'ai machine by a coworker @.@)

    Section 2: Walkthroughs

    1. How to use Oh! Text Hooker and Atlas

    This section will help you learn how to use OTH/Atlas in an easy step by step process.


    (1)
    Start the game. If there are opening movies, skip or wait until it's over and brings you to the game menu. If possible, play the game in windowed mode for easier access to OTH and the Quick Atlas window. (For best performance, exit out of any unecessary programs as QuickAtlas will take a significant amount of memory and processing power)



    (2) Start QuickAtlas. Notice in your taskbar, a green icon will pop up. That is QuickAtlas running in the background. Right Click on it to bring up the menu and select Automatic Clipboard Translation.




    (3) Double click the icon to open the QuickAtlas window. Here, you can resize it and adjust the window to fit your needs. The top part of the window is the Japanese text while the bottom is the english translation. (Tip - you can click on the center bar to hide the japanese text, leaving only the english box as pictured below)




    (4) Now you will need to attach Oh! Text Hooker to the game. Start OTH using the MS-DOS Batch file as seen in the screenshot (Do not start using the OTH application in the subfolder)

    If you are not sure if your version of OTH is Atlas ready, you can download a stripped version of it in the FAQ section.




    (5) Once you start the executable, a window will pop up with list of currently running processes. Select the game from the process list and click Attach.




    (6) This will bring up the text window settings for OTH. For best translation results, select the following options as detailed in the screenshot. Use the translation plugin jatlas_ansi2.dll from the list. then click OK.




    (7) Now that the game is properly hooked, go to the game window. You'll notice now that the Atlas window will now have translated the text for the game. Congratulations, you have succesfully hooked the game!





    2. Editing Registry to prevent Focus Stealing


    Prevents Quick Atlas window from stealing focus of the game. Helpful for games that require window focus in order to play, and games that have menu translation problems.

    DISCLAIMER: Editing your registry is risky and can cause damage to your computer if you do not know what you are doing. While this walkthrough is very straightforward and foolproof as long as you follow the directions, the writer nor the site that this FAQ is posted on is liable for damages you may incur from using this FAQ.

    (1) Open your start menu and click RUN from the list.




    (2) Type in REGEDIT and click Run. This will open your Registry Editor in a new window. Please do not attempt to edit anything in your registry that is not written in this walkthrough.




    (3) The registry you are attempting to edit is in My Computer > HKEY_CURRENT_USER > Desktop. Open the registry Foreground Lock Timeout and enter in the values 30d40 using the Hexadecimal Base.



    (4) Click OK then Restart your computer for the settings to take effect.



    3. Customizing your Atlas User Dictionary


    Follow this walkthrough to fix mistranslated names and other terms that can ruin the translation. Do this before or while you play to fix most of the problems that will come up later in the game.

    Do not use OTH. Use the Anime Games Text Hooker (AGTH) instead, which is also found in the Hentai Games Discussion forum. AGTH is compatible with more games and is still being supported by its author.
    Calvin: Here's another math problem I can't figure out. What's 9+4?
    Hobbes:
    Ooh. That's a tricky one. You have to use calculus and imaginary numbers for this.
    Calvin:
    IMAGINARY NUMBERS?!
    Hobbes:
    You know, eleventeen, thirty-twelve, and all those. It's a little confusing at first.

    • hellow, i run agth for blaze of destiny 2. It work but when i paste it onto "L&H Japanese Translator" the text won't arrange, it split vertical (somthing like that, don't know how explain it)
      so i must re-arrange it so i can read the translation properly, anyone know how to fix it? i've browsing the setting on the translator prog, but didn't get any clue.

      err, an lame question : is agth work with clannad and angelic serenade, coz at the main site the title doesn't present.
      Or it work with a little bit trick may be?
      i want re-run this game, but this time i want to know excatly about the story.
      Last time i play, was using manual translation it's really dificult and dosn't effective at all

      thanks a lot ^^

      • GREAT list. Thanks for it..But can Bible Black be compatible SOMEHOW?!?!?!

        • Anyone here has the same opinion like me ? I think that OGTH is better than AGTH , the author of AGTH himself said that AGTH works with all games supported by OGTH but it doesn't . So , use OGTH instead , if U know how to use it effectively , it's much better than AGTH .

          And good news , ATLAS is cracked , I will post more information later .

          • Didn't want to open up a new hread so i thought asking here should be fine.
            I had to uninstall my Atlas cause somehow it loved crashing and when i wanted to reinstall, it started telling me that my Trial time has ended.
            Usually no problem, but he's not installing he just says Trial over and stops there. x_x

            Thanks in advance

              • cross-posting this from the help forum:

                I'm trying to play Saya no Uta with the text hooker, using the ATLAS pack from hf-loli. the biggest problem is that the text hooker keeps spamming the header bar of the application, Saya no Uta in kanji, into the clipboard. so in every translation, ATLAS tries to force something with "song of"

                fiddling with the options of the text hooker didn't work. anybody knows some workaround for this?
                I can see the kanji of "Saya no uta" when i right-click the application and go to the properties. maybe there's some way to blank the description in the title bar

                • I am trying to use the OTH program but all that comes up is a blank screen even when I attach everything. I don't get the little icon for the quick atlas like you guys have. Is quick atlas somthing I need to download seperatly or is it just that plugin? I get no output to the notepad... I cant figure out what im doing wrong
