Time to get the shovel.

I just found out a detail about Hassan. Turns out the censored name is already on the Dreamcast subtitles (I just read the arm wrestling fellows and they call him "Haoyi".

So the censorship was already planned from the first version.

I've uploaded "SHENMUE II CHARACTER DATABASE - ALL 700 CHARACTERS!!" folder on Google Drive/Docs, for easy reference. That is you can check the database online.

All credit for the database goes to Miles Prower!

^(belated) thanks for that Giorgio :)
So, turns out I actually missed a character out from the database, whoops. The character in question, Wen Cheng Xiao, has a profile in both official guidebooks, but I thought he was unused because I simply could not find him in the game; I always encountered a different character, Zai Hong En, at the Kowloon Dentist instead. I made a topic about this waaaay back in 2006 actually viewtopic.php?t=31623

However recently I discovered I was wrong - after watching Bluemue's video of one of his Kowloon room raids, specifically the Moon Child Bldg, I was very confused to see that he found Cheng Xiao in the dentist! So I investigated this myself and found out that, in fact, they are both at Kowloon Dentist - it just seems to be entirely random who you get. I entered and exited the dentist numerous times and found it kept changing between the two - in fact at a couple of points, I witnessed one TRANSFORM into the other in front of Ryo's very eyes! I'm not sure if the programmers intended this or whether its a glitch/oversight, as the Golden Dentist next door is always empty - no NPC can be found in there. I'm thinking one of them must have been meant to be put in there, especially considering the guidebooks say Hong En is at the Golden Dentist (when as I said, he is actually at Kowloon Dentist with Cheng Xiao).

So the long and short of it; I had to go back and add Cheng Xiao, as he is not unused as I first thought, meaning there are actually 701 characters in the game, not 700. It bothers my OCD slightly that the total isn't a round number, but there you go :P For those who actually care, the updated database is still in the link in my signature. Enjoy!

Wow that's a great discovery! Really does seem like the devs made a mistake and put him in the wrong room, considering that one of them is empty and all.

I gotta check that out. Want to see that tranformation. Might be good enough for a short video even.

It got it captured! Now you can all see the magic happening. NPCs despawn in respawn in front of Ryo.

If the powers that be are interested in doing this, I personally won't object :) All the info is there, and the character profiles currently on the site (which I worked on about a decade ago!!) could certainly do with a revamp...

I tried this on the Xbox just now and it doesn't work that well there.

Only once did the guy there change to the one with the glasses who then stayed there. I tried again and again, reloaded the game but it kept giving me the regular guy without the glasses.

Yeah, I seem to remember I only saw the guy without the glasses on the Xbox version, leading me to believe that glasses guy (Cheng Xiao) was unused. It was the Dreamcast version I recently investigated on. So they kind of fixed it for the Xbox version, but not really? :P
