  • PS4 Remote Play, or a Capture Card. (Elgato, for example)

Here are some of the key features that are in this build:

  • Swap between chapters and episodes, never losing your place in the story.
  • Full Integration with Combat Sheet. Items/Accessories/Quartz/Master Quartz/Crafts/Brave Orders.
  • Application’s UI autoscales to most resolutions including ultrawide.
  • Tooltips that can be turned on and off at will.
  • Hiding of text while frozen.
  • Movable Text Dialogue via WASD controls.
  • Increase/Decrease of text printing speed.
  • Resize Text to be bigger or smaller depending on your personal preferences.

  • R2 (on the Playstation controller)- Advance one line

Resources (NEW, thank you ShiningConcepts!):


  • Q: (NEW) When using the overlay program with the PC version, it’s not detecting my controller’s inputs. What can I do?
    • This is a common issue with Rewired. As a work around, you can use the “Multi-Button” function in Steam’s controller figuration to map the right arrow key to the A button and the F key to L3. If you use this workaround, make sure to unbind the right arrow key in Hajimari’s keyboard configuration (キーボード設定).
  • Q: After updating, the app is hanging/crashing when importing the translation!
    • This shouldn’t be needed for most people, but if this happens you may have to clear you ColdSteelSubs registry entry:
    • If you are in the middle of a main story chapter, write down the line number you are on as this process will cause your ColdSteelSubs program to forget it
    • In the Windows search bar type “regedit” and hit Enter
    • On the list of folder in the left bar, click on “HKEY_CURRENT_USER” then “Software” then “ZeroField” then right click on “ColdSteelSubs”
    • Right Click on the folder named “ColdSteelSubs” and click “Delete”, then Yes to confirm
    • Re-lauch the application – it should load with default settings.
  • Q: Why isn’t the app downloading successfully?
    • Your firewall may be blocking the download. Please ensure that Windows firewall is set to allow downloads from the source.
  • Q: When I open the program, it is stuck at “Loading Translation.” How come?
    • A: This is most often caused by language locale. If your computer is set to a language other than English, try switching the language and the region to English.
  • Q: How come the Overlay isn’t transparent?
    • A: When launching the application, please let it fully load. It can glitch and lose its transparency if you alt tab or multitask while it loads.
    • (NEW) Also, NVIDIA Control Panel can stop the transparency from working correctly. If you weren’t multitasking when loading the app and still got a transparency issue, try clearing your global NVIDIA Settings.
  • Q: Why are my commands not working?
    • A: Please make sure the Overlay is the primary application.
  • Q: How come we didn’t spoiler tag certain characters in combat data sheets?
    • A: We had a strict time table across multiple teams to release this in the time frame that we did, and to release it all together. We decided as a team to move forward in this direction to get it into your hands sooner.
    • Also note that C’s identity is never stated in the combat overlay.
  • Q: Are there minimum system requirements?
    • A: The application has been tested with as little as 4GB minimum RAM. It is functional, but for optimal performance we recommend 8GB or greater.
  • Q: Can I run this on my Mac computer?
    • A: Tested on a 2019 MacBook Pro running Wine and it worked fine. Your mileage may vary, we had a single mac to test on.
  • Q: Help! I tried to run the application but it doesn’t load.
    • A: If the application doesn’t load and when you try to open it again, it says it is running already, then please cancel the process in Task Manager(Ctrl+Alt+Del) and try again.
