    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.

    • Hi i tried hooking up my Oh! text hooker to the game when its running but it wouldn't let me. So i had to choose the Run option when the Oh! text hooker box came up since the attach doesn't do anything and i successfully got it to work with atlas v14 and oh! text hooker. However after the first sentence in the game "Fate/hollow ataraxia" it keeps repeating the same sentence ignoring the context.

      For example in the Japanese box of Atlas v14 it would be:
      "Fate/hollowataraxiaシステム(&S)システム(6画面(&V)画面(9ヘルプ(&H)ヘルプ("

      And the english box would be:
      Help screen (Fate/hollowataraxia system (&S) system ((of nine help (&H) of six screens (&V)

      The Japanese box is incorrect but i don't know why. According to another website that has a list of compatibilities of games with Atlas + text hooker, "Fate/hollow ataraxia" works. The site that says so is http://blgames.proboards.com/index.c...lay&thread=250

      If anyone knows a solution to this problem please reply, thanks!

      • Read the first paragraphs of the site you linked, your problem is that you're using the wrong tool.

          Use this special Agth code. It worked for me: /HB1C*0@A830:SactEngine.dll /pnSYSTEM40.exe

              • I've set locale to Japanese and followed the guide but the translation just keep repeating things like

                Whiting
                Furnace
                Spanish mackerel

                Like this - (I had to use word to get a copy of it cause the hooker keeps copying onto the clipboard, so word messed with this a little)

                Two Toku?Toku?- ?E? [**]?[**]?- ?E? [**]?[**]?[**]?[**]?[**]?[**]?[**]?[**]?- ?E? [**]?[**]?Whiting?Whiting?- ?E? sushi?Sushi?[**]?[**]?- ?E?

                      Trying the game starless but the attach button on OTH is not bringing the text option. Any idea what is wrong?

                      And anyone knows the agth code for STARLESS?
                      Think!There must be a better way.

                        Did you try searching in the agth thread? If that game needs a hcode or /x /v options, someone probably have posted in there already.

                        • Has anyone got any new programs from dlsite? They made a recent change and now every program makes you verify using it with this thing called the secure application kicker. One of my circles released a new work that uses live.dll and I was always able to get it to work before. Now with this program I can't use agth with it. Anyone have the same problem or know of any work arounds?

                            • Hello...I followed the tutorial.

                              But until now, the Quick Atlas only shows random translations.
                              Should I change the system locale to Japanese?

                              Thanks
