Here’s an English port of Musou Stars (Warriors All-Stars) using the PC assets. Now fully playable, still got minor bugs on Tips text and probably also on dialog during story and battle.
Not really my kind of game, but some users are requesting this and I’ve gotten used to how Tecmo Koei Games can be modded and decided just to quickly port it since I’ve already had the tools and experience from my previous projects with this game format.
Maybe I’ll just release this and let you guys do the testing, getting kinda lazy to play games lately lols. :p Though I did play the game for about 3hours or so and tested a decent time of every character prologue introduction battle until you reach the main map or whatever you call it.
○ The initial release of English patch
○ Port All English text/images from the PC version.
What’s not translated:
○ Game title on vita’s save pop-up window
○ Game Credits
○ Maybe some text or images that I overlook (please do report this)
○ Word warping issue on dialog windows (Battle and story).
○ Some text may seem to be compressed/Squished.
Weird bug that crashes the game when displaying some Quest text that has a % symbol. [FIXED – check link for hot fix]
○ Hacked Vita (Enso/h-encore 3.60/3.65/3.68)

○ Do not change the “English Subtitles” on the Option screen. Originally that was supposed to display English subtitles on “FMV movies only” and not in-game text. Since the game is now modded and Default all Japanese text is now replaced with English, there no need to change that, doing so is equivalent to turning off the Movie subtitles.
