General information

  • SUBT files are global, stored in level0_Final.dat.
  • There are only these two files, the use of which is hardcoded, so you can't add other SUBT files:
    • SUBTmessages.oni: Autoprompt lines looked up by ONGS and messages used for training the player in Chapters 0 and 1.
    • SUBTsubtitles.oni: Dialogue lines which appear when the corresponding sounds are played via the BSL commands "sound_dialog_play" and "sound_dialog_play_block".

OniSplit commands

-extract:txt <target directory> <SUBTfilename.oni>

Rips a SUBT as .txt into the target folder from source .dat or .oni.

-create:subt <target directory> <SUBTfilename.txt>

Creates a SUBT .oni file in the target folder from a .txt file.

Missing dialogue lines

Most of Shinatama's lines in the training level were never subtitled, so you won't find them in SUBTsubtitles. Iritscen transcribed those lines (00_01_35 through 00_01_90) from the audio on the Chapter 0 section of the Quotes/Speech page.
