I did it! Shenmue Xiaopang Complete Edition 16:9 mod success

Postby mmxii » Fri May 19, 2017 2:03 pm

Yesterday I made a post about editing Dreamcast games, well, I finally figured it out and wide screen modded the Xiaopang Complete Edition of Shenmue (NTSC-U and has the motorcycle music and Coca-Cola vending machines like it should have).

The files are big and have excellent audio. This mod works in emulators as well as on the actual Dreamcast.

Click the attachments below to see the difference (it's quite a big difference) between stretched 4:3 and actual 16:9.

If anyone is interested in this I will definitely upload it :)

I hex edited all the .cdi's manually. Didn't extract anything.

Just finished compressing the discs.

1.1 GB .7z file. 3 discs (passport would not edit so I didn't include it, no biggie anyway) unarchived is 2.3 GB. The format is .cdi and each disc weighs about 770 MB (unsure if they can be burned to 80 min discs but this is definitely worth burning to 99 minute discs).

Uploading now :D

mmxii you're doing important work for the Dreamcast community here. This is historic!

With that said though, does this particular version of Shenmue one work with Dreamshell for modded DCIDEs? Also, are there any other titles in the works you plan on re-mastering? Like Vigilante 8 2nd Offense or Spider-Man for example?

The thing is harddrives are far more reliable than DC disc drives. Unless you're a adept at soddering and replacing the disc drive when it dies you're SOL. Whereas HDD's are easily replaceable. That's why getting every game as possible to work on Dreamshell with HDD or SD card is absolutely essential. CDRs just aren't viable in the long run.

I honestly have no idea if it will run using Dreamshell, but it'll be finished in a matter of moments.

Download it and give it a try! I'd love to hear your results. :D

As for patching others, maybe. I'm definitely interested in doing what I can to help the community. Since I work from home now, I can dedicate more time to my hobby (wife permitting LOL) so it's definitely a possibility :)

Yeah well, either way what you're doing really is historic brah.

Yeah, can't test anything with CD-R's since the ones I have now are too old and won't work. No emulators here either, when it comes to DC I prefer the real thing (unless it's naomi).

Wouldn't mind booting this in Dreamshell though. I'll tell you what I'll give it a go and report back here with my findings. Regardless of whether this works on the modded Dreamcast with the HDD this was truly a great thing you did. Sega fans will sing songs in your honor for years to come!

Awesome! I am excited to try out this mod when it's uploaded!

Did you encounter any other challenges editing the CDI file? Which parts of the file did you modify?

This is Ziming from the Shenmue Dojo fansite. Please revise this topic and change the description over at the download page. You're not the one who figured out this widescreen hex edit mod. Shenmue Dojo contributor "Esppiral" did earlier this year.
