MGQ2 More Stuff

December 22, 2011

Few more things:

1. I updated the patch again to version 2.02, the most recent one. A lot of bug fixes all over the place, apparently.

2.Thanks to the efforts of SomeLoliCatgirl, who made the word wrap fix for part 1, the new executable has been updated for part 2. That means word wrap will be working right from the start!

3. I counted the lines for the Encyclopedia, and added them in.

4. I’m leaving tomorrow to go to my parents house for a few days for el christmaso.

Line Type: Done / Remaining

Story: 2734/ 19600    — 13.5%

Battles: 7912 / 83,000 — 9.5%

Cities: 1091/5229 — 20.7%

Encyclopedia: 0/1450 – 0%

Overall: 11737/109279 — 10.7%

    Less than a week and over 10%? That’s crazy! I expect this pace will drop off going forward, but it’s nice to see so much progress so quickly nonetheless. Happy Holidays.

    … Take your time.. You have done MUCH this past week. Just take your time and relax. Don’t worn yourself out; and you will do if you don’t STOP TRANSLATING 24/7. Seriously, if you rush this too fast, it will probably never be done, and we wouldn’t want to see that, would we?

    You have done more then 2000 lines á day. Dont rush this ok? we dont want this to end like 90 % of all the VH translation project out there

    so are you going to try and let other work on the patch with you, or are you going solo?

    • No, I’m doing it because I like doing it, not because I want it to come out super fast. Because of that, I’d prefer to stay solo. Dealing with other people (except personal friends, who wouldn’t want to anyway) just gets annoying.

      • Agion permalink

        when its done, ya going to provide a link for the download, right?

    Madness. Unadulterated madness. You are a godmachine amongst men for progressing so fast.

    I gotta ask cause I’m wondering if it’s similar… when you translate do you just kind of get in a zen state where you hammer things out without time seeming to pass?

    • Not really no. I’ll do some, then play a game or something, do some more, go over to a friends house for a while, etc… So it’s not like I fully concentrate on it for a long time in a row.

    Double digits already! I just passed the succubus village in my chiitrans playthrough. I more or less know whats going on, but any like serious dialogue I end up having to basically skip. And there’s quite a few long expositions here and there, so I’m looking forward to reading it. Looks like some good backstory on Alice and such.

  23. Will permalink

    I just have a little inquiry about the text…I know from playing your first patch that the sentences cut off in the middle of a word when the line gets too long and it needs to continue the sentence in the following line…is there any way that you can fix that for the second chapter? It’s truly not that big of a deal, but I do get a bit annoyed by this. If it’s too much trouble, then don’t bother–I just thought I’d give you as well as the other fans my opinion on this matter…in case the way I described it above was unclear, what I’m talking about looks a little like this example –

    “Sally sells seashells down by the seash

    Just an example…

    • Anonymous permalink

      actually id like to hear rogues opinion on that too. he probably has a good reason and its better for him not to waste his time on something so trivial but i wudnt mind hearing his thoughts on it lol

    • Anonymous permalink

      That’s called “word wrapping”, and it’s exactly what SomeLoliCatGirl fixed, per RT’s post up there.

      • Yeah, it’s an issue with the wordwrap. SomeLoliCatgirls executable fixed this (See the trial for part 2, where I was using it from the start so there aren’t any issues). He updated the executable modification to work with the new version, so that should be all set.

        • Will permalink

          Awesome–thanks for letting me know. It was truly the only real issue I had with the patch, and it was a tiny one at that lol. Keep up the good work, Rogue, and thanks to SomeLoliCatGirl for fixing the issue. Love everyone who helps out on this.

    BTW… do you find yourself working better with deadlines or not? I find myself much more productive when I’ve set daily goals (e.g. “four pages a day”) than anything else.

    • No, I’m doing this for fun. Setting deadlines makes it seem like something I have to accomplish “or else”.

      • Kanosint permalink

        But… But… There is an ‘or else’ :3 We’d all cryyyy for every day without Monstergirls raping us X3

        On a different note… Is Nanabi back for sexonds? If so, anyone got a teaser? ^^;

      • Kusojijii permalink

        I see; so you take pleasure in the process itself. As for myself, the main joy comes from the result rather than the process, so I work much better with self-imposed deadlines. Plus, I’m hard to motivate…

    amazing work man, but i agree with a lot of the other people here haha. you don’t have to rush it, make sure you enjoy the game yourself! happy holidays good sir =D

  33. Finalheaven permalink

    Oh, man. Another patch already? I combined your patch for the first game and quick machine translation on the second game to play through it. I was doing some random translation work on the side for fun on the later battles, my favorite ones(after your next patch release point), and the lack of word wrap annoys me, but this looks like it would make things much more convenient.

    Now with the patch, I wanna go back and see what they did to the script to fix the problems, but it also annoys me that I have to look for it in the huge script file. If you don’t mind me asking, RogueTranslator, what program do you use to edit the file? I’m doing the work on wordpad and its annoying to load up 7.5 MBs of script to edit and scroll around.

    • Notepad++, and I compare with winmerge.

      I use winmerge to look at the two versions (Say MGQ2 V2.0 compared with MGQ2 V2.2). I look for the line differences, then go to my version and add them in manually wherever they fall. Has taken about an hour per patch. Updating MGQ part 1 to 1.10 took a few hours, though.

      • I like slime girls permalink

        Why don’t you just use the compare plug-in for notepad++?

  34. Finalheaven permalink

    Very nice… Winmerge will make things go much more smoothly for me.

    1 to 1.10 for the first title had a decent amount of changes and the custom story edit mode they added. At the rate you are going, I may just figure out how nscript works and make some custom battles or something. My Japanese is pretty weak, so I end up relying on Translation Aggregator and fixing up the grammar and making the sentences sound more coherent. You are probably breezing through it.

    Anyways, thanks for the help and happy holidays to you, good sir.

  43. NotSoSerious permalink

    Guys, you’d do yourselves a favor by downloading the raw version of the game online via torrent. Just use a search engine by typing “monmosu quest 2” or “monster girl quest 2” and clicking ones from piratebay or isohunt. Or better yet you can buy the official version and wait for the translation. anyways, kudos to RT and happy holidays!

    • Finalheaven permalink

      Guys, do yourself a favor and just buy the game. This game deserves your money if you are browsing this much for a translation patch. Promoting piracy is not the right way to show support for this game, especially for the people who translate visual novels such as this.

      I attained the first game via unsavory means. After playing it, I realized that these people definitely deserved my money. I went to DLsite and bought the first game and waited till the second game came out to purchase it, too.

        It’s always best to support these devs where we can, but for some people it really isn’t an option for them. Those of us that are doing a bit better will try and cover for the rest of you guys, but the more of us that get these games the more likely they are to develop more of them, and then we all win.

      • Richard permalink

        For most cases its a game that attracts teens everywhere, can you imagine a guy going up to hes mom and saying “Mother, i need your credit card to buy an erotic visual novel.”? It’d be damn hilarious but he’d probably get a slap in the face.

    Rogue, would you be interested in having someone do minor editing for you in their spare time? I’m only talking about the English parts, I have only a little knowledge of Japanese, but if you want someone to look through the translations and correct the errors that word programs do not catch, then email me, I would be happy to do it.

    You are THE BEST! Seriously, I can’t believe these games are actually being translated, it’s so awesome. I played the first one using agth (before you translated it) and it just can’t compare to a proper translation. I also pirated the first one.

    This time I will not make the same mistakes though. I will wait until the translation is finished before I play the game, and I will also purchase it.

    And once again, I really appreciate that you are taking the time to translate this game.

    RT is the only translator I know that consistently beats his own ambitious predictions. Not trying to jinx you, but incredible progress so far, and you were just as awesome about part 1. And after playing through part 2, I know how ridiculously huge it is, almost twice the size of part 1.

    Want to know about buying the game : When you buy it, will you have a “box version” ? Or it’s only downloading ?
    And, in Europe, it’s good or not ?

    • Kusojijii permalink

      Oh, are you interested in paying trans-atlantic shipping fees? Because I wasn’t… I bought both games so far, both download-only.

      There’s no area restriction. Once you have it, you can play it wherever you are (Unlike Ren’ai Kateikyoushi Rurumi, grrr…)

      Lastly let me copy the appropriate section of the main site:
      “Currently, there are no plans for a hardware edition. If a hardware edition is ever released, it will only be after all 3 games are out.”

      • Finalheaven permalink

        I finished the game already, and it sucks. The story isn’t even remotely interesting and the characters seem pretty drab and they come and go fairly quickly. The only thing it has going for it is that the CGs is consistent – same artist, etc.

        To me, this game seems like it was just made in a rush to ride on the coat tails of monmusu quest that was made popular by ToroToro and steal some of their sales. The game was released just before the release of Monster Quest 2 as well.

        • Anonymous permalink

          Ah. Nvm to downloading it then.

        • Dargoth permalink

          The CGs are good and so is the voice acting. The game itself is horrible and the story sucks, but honestly, it’s a hentai game so those things aren’t that important. I’d actually like to translate the game (it’s pretty short), but can’t figure out how to encrypt a patch to work with it. Apparently most kirikiri engine games have very simple encryption, but after a few hours comparing files in a hex editor and reading the decoder in assembly, this one is beyond me.

          • Anonymous permalink

            A lot of people rather enjoy the story in MGQ, and I’d say that’s the element that brought such a niche fetish of monster girls to a much wider audience.

      oh right i did forget about the Lilias worshipping lamia, and the angel with snakes was already in the site …
      Actually I’m relieved to know there are gonna be monsters in part 3 and not just angels.
      To be honest the idea of a “reformed” succubus is a bit of a stretch and will probably take away all the beauty of it but … i’d love to se more succubi action.
      Now that I think of it…
      Isn’t luka a true ally of the monsters now and free from lilias rules?
      Doesn’t that means he could tecnically party with all his newfound allies how much as he wanted?
      I would totally be the human race ambassador into the succubus village.

      • Anonymous permalink

        Basically here will be the enemies in part 3. Ilias and her angel army. Prometheus the labcoat lady who made the Anti-Knight Mechas. Those Mechas are basically better and stronger versions of the 4 Heavenly Knights. Black Alice is a partner to Ilias. She is the leader of the “MG rebellion.” Many MG’s are getting sick of the oppression while Alice does little to help. So they turn to Black Alice, who promises a new world for them. Also, Prometheus created artificial spirits just like Luka’s spirits. And those spirits will be given to the Black Alice MG’s thus allowing us to have normal monsters that still can fight. The Machine English translation is rough, but Ilias could possibly be planning on destroying both monsters and humanity. At this rate, the only way Luka can keep up is pushing his spirits beyond their mastered lvl, perfecting Quadruple Giga so it’s practical, and being able to control his Fallen Angel mode. All of the defensive and attack skills Luka’s learned are becoming more and more like his Fallen Angel mode. Luka would have no problem using Quadruple Giga if he added Fallen Angel Dance (the beastly avoids). And, at this rate, Luka can have a harem of Alice and 4 Heavenly Knights. For MG’s, love and sex can sometimes be different, so he could get married to one, but still have sex with all.

        • Anonymous permalink


          I like this harem end idea. Never enough of Alma Elma and Erubiete for me (can’t say I wrote her name right).Also, just like other anon I’m happy that we still get some MG despite angels arc.
          In my opinion in part 3 our final destination will be Illias continent, our hometown and that elf village. I wonder whom will we meet on evaluaions, Alice?

      hey anon, go back to reddit you stupid faggot. you had no reason to talk to me like that and you obviously didn’t take the time or perhaps don’t have the brain capacity to understand my words.
      if rouge worked as much as he did on one section at a time. it would be done at a quicker pace. would you talk to me like that if it wasn’t in front of a computer screen? you act like some child.

      • Working on one section at a time wouldn’t be faster. Everything is all in the same script file, so “switching sections” just requires moving the scroll bar a little bit.

        Also even if it was faster, focusing on only one thing for too long gets boring.

    The anon right above me put what I could ever say into a succinct but beautiful metaphor.

    This game was yet another great title that would have passed us by if it weren’t for your hard effort (not to mention ungodly speed). So while you’ve received your fair share of thank yous from your other fans, I’d like to think one more from me won’t hurt.

    Say, are you sure about this “no donation” thing? Because I’d give you all the money I have in my wallet. Like, right now if you wanted me to.

  79. Imoutocon permalink

    I guess rougetranslations knows about the side effects of accepting donations as he need to seek the creators of the games and give a certain percentage of this earnings to them(This would be tedious and he might lose alot of money if the game is not selling well enough). Otherwise he might be violating certain rules and copyright infringements for accepting donations.

    These are just my thoughts, they are not solid facts.

        Sorry if i struck a nerve of yours, im just stating this to clarify why Rougetranslation’s is not currently accepting any donations.
        I used examples of why they might not accept any donations to get their attention and for them to set things straight from then on.
        It seems like my message got your attention first.

    I have a question Rogue, since part 1 is combined with part 2, will the patch you put out for part 2 contain the english translation of part 1 as well?
