VH First Patch
Before you download anything… Make. Sure. You. Read. The. Instructions.
For anyone that hasn’t patched an RPG Maker game before and gotten it to run, it isn’t as straightforward as just extracting and clicking an executable.
First Patch Contents:
The first patch contains everything from the prologue to the “final battle” of the first area. No other towns are translated. Nanako is the only character whose generic text is translated, so while the other characters will have the event text translated in the town, their generic text will not be. Serena’s opening area is not translated, so I would advise against picking her to start with. Debug content is not translated, with the exception of some of the debug tool itself for changing stat parameters. During the prologue, if you get captured by the guards, it will take you to an untranslated town. Also, if you fall off the train, there’s a short bit of untranslated text… So watch out for those two.
Due to each event having varying text based on Nanako’s stats and pregnancy status, it’s hard to test every line. Some lines may run off screen, or there may even be a line or two I missed translating, or put in the wrong text box. If you see any huge errors like that, please bring them to my attention.
How to Install/Run the game:
I’ve even made pictures, so hit the “more” button to load the instructions.
Step 1: Install Japanese RTP for RPGMaker. This can be downloaded here: http://www.mediafire.com/?mug4mjtorfm . Run the setup after extracting it, and just keep hitting the Next arrow.
Step 2: Download the VH game off the Japanese site. http://www1.axfc.net/uploader/C/so/147025 . Put ‘vh” as the password, and click the button. See the pictures for what you type/click on.
Step 3: Extract the downloaded game and change the folder name to VH . Make sure that there is no subfolder (That is, if you open up VH you would see all the map files, and not another folder marked VH – something -)
Step 4: Download and extract Habisain’s tool in the same folder that VH is in. http://habisain.blogspot.com/ . Your folder should look like this after it’s extracted.
Step 5: Download the Patch and extract to the same directory. Patch Location: http://www.mediafire.com/download.php?amaya14768app9f . Your folder should look like this after.
Step 6: Run RPGMaker Trans. Choose the only options available from the dropdown box and hit start. It will take a few minutes to run to completion. If it hangs, that means you either opened a .txt file in the VH_Patch folder, or you may not have renamed the folders right. Or it could be an issue with not having Japanese language support on your computer.
Step 7: Copy the Panorama and Picture folder into the VH_Translated folder. Overwrite all files it prompts. It should prompt for around 200 files to overwrite. If it doesn’t ask whether you want to overwrite or not, you’re copying them to the wrong folder.
Step 8: Run RPG_RT from the VH_Translated folder and play! If it doesn’t launch, giving an error that has the number ‘2000’ in it, you likely didn’t install the RPGMaker RTP setup at Step 1.
