    WThell! i just found out that the original japanese dub is MORE heavier than the english DUB..

    In Xenoblade Chronicles AHX folder:

    Japan Dub 1.67 GB - 6.739 Dubbed File
    English Dub 1.42 Gb - 6.679 Dubbed File

    "60" files = 250 mb are missing in the english dub..

    WTF?

    Is not about "quality", the dubs have the same quality,
    the english have less dub than japan dub.. this is the sad truth,

    means that some text line haven't been dubbed in english.. [​IMG]

    Like ARC RISE FANTASIA, or other Usa games (tales of symphonia/abyss) LOL


    ANYWAY, the AHX.pkb is a BIG "AFS" vessel,
    i can extract and insert all, so i can inject the missing dub by the japan dub into the english [​IMG]
    (i can convert ahx file to .wav to listen all)

    But the game will recognize the injected japan dub in some point in the game?
    maybe i will put the same file name.

    I start to find a way [​IMG]

    Well, there are multiple possible reasons for this.
    1. The lines simply don't appear in the English version.
    2. In the English version a few samples were reused, whereas in the Japanese version different samples were used for each line.
    3. In the English version a few samples contain more lines than the Japanese samples so that overall less samples are needed. Most of the English samples may also be shorter so that the English dub overall needs less space.

    Surpise surprise!
    bad news guys, i just find that the english dub (1.42 Gb) have many many japan dub inside NOT dubbed in english..
    yep, more text line NOT dubbed.. but left in japanese,
    so "this" japan dub not appear when you set the english voice in the game..
    seems the game dont recognize this japan file, but pass over (even if still present in the Eng-AHX)

    i find that the missing file are real, compared to the jap,
    so this mean, there are more than 60 file missing in the english dub (not dubbed), what a shame. [​IMG]

    Anyway are about cool Battle chat (not the main story event)
    Every character have like 10-15 more text line "not dubbed" or eliminated when you perform a battle or super battle.

    Bad bad.. japan dub is definitely better

    Is English your mother tongue?
    Because it's really hard to understand the stuff you write.
