RELEASE: Shenmue Beta Disc 3 Exploration Mod V1 OUTDATED

Postby shengoro86 » Tue Sep 23, 2014 2:11 pm

Hello.

I am proud to announce this new release.

This release is called the Exploration Mod. It has finally hit version 1.

What is it?
This is a mod of Shendream's BETA release of Shenmue 1 Disc 3.
This mod allows you to walk around most areas without clipping. This allows you to walk through walls and most objects.
It also contains playable maps for Beta Yamanose, Beta Sakuragaoka, and Wish Road!

Why?
I made this for my own purpose but I wanted to share it with everyone. I always wanted to go wherever I wanted to when inside of shops and stuff. It was also made as a framework for my upcoming bike mod.

How?
Each mapinfo.bin has been hacked to remove all clipping data.

Who?
The original clipping method was developed by Giorgio.
The beta maps were hacked by Wude.
The Beta itself was released by Shendream.
The grunt work was done by me :)

Which areas can I free roam?
Here is the list:
D000 - Retail Dobuita
JD00 - Retail Sakuragaoka
JD01 - Beta Sakuragaoka
JHD0 - Hazuki Residence
JOMO - Ryo's House
JU00 - Retail Yamanose
JU01 - Beta Yamanose
MFSY - Harbor
MKSG - Old Warehouse District
DYKZ - Nagai Industries
DURN - Lapis Fortune Teller
DTKY - Maeda Barber Shop
DSLT - Slot House
DSLI - Bar Linda
DSKI - Global Travel Agency
DRSA - Russiya China Shop
DRME - Manpukuken Ramen
DPIZ - Bob's Pizzaeria
DKTY - Antique Shop
DKPA - Nana's Karaoke Bar
DJAZ - MJQ Jazz Bar
DGCT - You Arcade
DCHA - Ajiichi
DBYO - Bar Yokosuka
DBHB - Heartbeats Bar
TATQ - Tattoo Parlor
JABE - Abe Store Candy Shop
MKYU - Harbor Lounge
YDB1 - Hazuki Basement
D001 - Wish Road


How do I use it?
Just like in the original beta release, you can call these specific maps up with the main debug menu.
For the shops that are closed when you go into them with the menu, just use the 4th player controller debug menu to set the time in the game to a time where the shop is open!


Are there bugs?
Yes! Like all arcane Shenmue hacks, bugs will exist.
-Ryo's House is completely broken and invisible. (This will be fixed in the next version)
-Random textures disappear and pop in when you are walking through walls. (This is normal and cannot be fixed.)

NOTE: You cannot play through this as normal!!!!!! It is disc 3 AND the maps are hacked to the point where the normal game will not flow and cutscenes may not trigger. It is for exploring only!

What can I play it on?
Confirmed working on NullDC, DEmul, Reicast, Chankast, and actual DC hardware via CD-R or GDEMU.

Wish Road is the name for the street to the harbor. Only used in the motorcycle drive scene and the cutscene with Nozomi later on. I guess people call it that because of the song that plays during the ride home with Nozomi...?

Yep. I think LanDC coined that name when he released his inital mod. It just stuck with me lol.
His Wish Road mod was actually what got me interested in modding in general.
Its amazing when you can just walk down the road and see everything.

I've messed around with this for a while now. There isn't that much new to see actually but I love walking trough blocked off places, around the houses and get some new viewing angles. The most interesting so far was the harbor. Simple because for it's size and what's going on there.

There I spotted an NPC I've never seen before! At least I never really noticed him.
He looks kinda strange and is really unique because he's pushing around some kind of cart with boxes. He's walking along the outside sidewalk behind the new warehouse nr. 8. At some point he stops and suddenly the boxes are gone. What's funny is that the cart is linked to his arms so when you talk to him, he moves and lifts it corresponding with his motion. He just has some generic lines to say and uses the irritating voice that the green camo dude that always tells you to piss off.

I bet he's Yukawa after cancellation of Shenmue III. He was fired from Sega lol.

Never seen this NPC. It's cool to find new secrets in the game.

Yeah true.

I always hated not being able to explore the sections of the harbor that are blocked off.

im going to make a tutorial video on how to use it. Its very simple once you know what each option is.

Pretty much goes like this.
Main menu debug screen is used to load maps.

In game debug screen is brought up by pressing start on controller 4.
Use the controlller 4 to cycle through the menu and change values, like debug flags and in game time.

I'll have a video up by the end of the week.
