    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.

    Oh! Text Hooker Official Website - Atlas JP Official Website
    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.

      Its more easy if someone puts the direct link or an atachment of the Atlas v11 or v12 program. bacause I believe that the delatanime torrent is dead,

      so if someone finds the program, we will be thankful forever.

            Princess General II doesn't work. It's just translating the top menu.
            Princess Genral I works but with you can't set it windows mode and repeats the words and sentences alot.

              I seriously doubt I'll ever get VG Rebirth to work with this. It actually seems to be one of those games with internal graphic-based text as opposed to using the computer's native fonts, which does finally explain why all the dialogue was printed clearly on my old Windows 98 machine long before I learned how to change Windows' locale settings and display all those garbled symbols in the rest of the games as Japanese font.

                For Princess General II, you must choose to show hidden text or it will only show the menu.

                    Maisyou (currently torrented): appears to work fine. Although for some reason it translates "eclipse" as "The Talented Mr. Ripley." I kid you not.

                    Tifa Tan X: Uh... apparently it works. Considering the predictable nature of the rather minimal dialogue at the end ("Oh! Oh, joystick! You're so good to me! OOOOHHH YEEEEEAHHHH!!!") I question whether it's worth the trouble. Sheer morbid curiosity conquers all, I guess.
                    I wish those who unsettle you would castrate themselves.

                          i'm not using Ohthk anymore, all next report unless specified will be done using the Agth utility made from Setx; i assume games that work with OhThk work also with Agth at least at the same level if not better, games working with Agth can also work with Ohthk at the same level or less or not working at all; previous incompatibles games need to be tested again with /x options of Agth, games that use graphics instead of windows Api will probably will never work.
                          Agth does not offer the filters like the jeclip plugin.
                          Always use /c option for automatic clipboard translation, sametime i specify the /w[address] option to give to Agth, however this value in same games can change depending on environment so if the function is not hooked just search yourself for it.

                            I've been having some trouble with using Oh! Text Hooker, in that for the most part, it'll only want to hook the menu information and not the dialogue; sometimes, it will hook the dialogue but follow immediately with the menu/program information, making it hard to use. Do I have to set the settings in a specific way to prevent this?

                                Well, the PAR2 patch thing didn't work, but editing the registry settings seemed to have made it not always be in the foreground. However, the translation is still menu items, often repeated many times. Is this perhaps a fault of the game rather than the program, or am I just not setting it up right?
