Reducing CPU usage and fixing other bugs.

DON’T USE - for Yakuza 5, this patch is no longer required. It is listed here for archival purposes only.

Yakuza Remastered Collection is a collection consisting of Yakuza 3, Yakuza 4, and Yakuza 5, released on PC in January 2021. While currently all 3 games have been patched officially, some of the CPU usage issues remain unfixed, and SilentPatch addresses them. Additionally, SilentPatch improves compatibility for users with non-ASCII characters in user names, especially in Yakuza 5.

  • CPU usage has been significantly cut down in all 3 games.
  • A low level keyboard hook potentially causing issues with slow typing speed has been removed.
  • Worked around a crash occurring occasionally after finishing battles with a Heat Action. - fixed in an official patch.
  • Fixed a potential random startup crash.
  • Fixed several issues related to non-ASCII user names, most notably a freeze when using Print Circle photo booths in Yakuza 5.

This patch only works with the Steam version of the game!
