2-11-2012 MGQ2 Update and potential patch date

February 11, 2012

First off:

As someone posted in the comments on a previous post, Monster Girl Quest was actually put onto the vidyagaemawards (http://vidyagaemawards.com/)  in two categories: Least Hated Game of the Year and Most Interesting New IP. They’re going to stream the awards show tomorrow at 6pm EST. It warms the cockles of my heart to think I had a hand in bringing over something that many people didn’t hate.

 

Next for the patch date:

Not 100% certain yet due to a busy period coming up, but I’ll probably have it finished by February 18th (One week from now). I’ve got everything translated until the start of the next story arc/quest hub, except for the Encyclopedia entries. I also haven’t edited and/or tested it, which takes some time. Also as I mentioned in the first sentence, my next week is going to be busy, making everything slower in general.

For the line count:

City     – 5175/5175            – 100%
Story    – 11362/19600        – 58%
Battle    – 51077/83000        – 61.5%
Ency    – 700/1450             – 48.3%
Total     – 68314/109225        – 62.5%

Once the Encyclopedia is finished, it should be around 63% of the total. It’s less than 66%, but the Succubus Village fights are very text heavy due to their extended losing scenes, so there’s a lot more actual text in that chunk.

Lastly:

I’ll be throwing in the Monster Laboratory scenes I translated from part 1 into the patch, converted to work with the “Spin-Off” option in Part 2. I took out three scenes though; The Goblin one, one of the vampire girl’s, and the Nekomata vs Luka fight. The Goblin and VG ones were short and plain, and kind of sucked. I had to take out the nekomata one since it would interfere with the actual Nekomata scene in the game (They referenced the same image names), and it would take unpacking, renaming and repacking the CGs as well as changing it in the scripts itself. Since the fight/scene wasn’t even finished to begin with, I just took it out. Stick with the Marco story if you want to see her stuff.

      You should try flexing to googling skills (everybodies born with it). Or how about the note worth skill of reading? Maybe, search through the blog posts on the blog that interests you? If you’re not willing to do that, then don’t bother, people shouldn’t just hand shit out to you.

        There’s not much difference in getting lost and asking for directions on the road versus on the internet other than reception. Best to shrug it off and lend a hand when there are far worse blog travesties to get indignant about.

        Great job Rogue! It’s really refreshing to see a project like this able to be carried 10x more efficiently to completion, especially by a single person!

          I’d say it is. See it’s more like walking into an apple store, saying you want a free ipad, and then not even knowing what model you want, so you’re asking the sales people to pick one out for you and hand it to you.

          If you’re going to pirate something, at least have the decency to figure out how to get things on your own.

          • Anonymous permalink

            Even worse…it’s the first link when you google.

      • yeah thanks alot mr troll, the reason why i cant find one is the reason im asking and the way you are replying just tells me that you cant find it either so youre just blowing off steam on someone else. And if im wrong, then it just means that your wasting time being here because a crappy translated version already exists somewhere out there and you yourself dont know how to google and find it. i rest my case :/

        • Lowlightt permalink

          No you are a freaking moron. You can purchase the game from its site duh. If you want to pirate it which (rogue does not endorse) then you can do a simple google search as it appears in no less than the first freaking link. THE GAME IS NOT LOCATED ON THIS SITE! So take your noobness else where and just fucking google it.

          • uhuh and theres already an english translation from some other person and you are here why? maybe if you youtubed this game youd realize an english 1 already exists and i fail to see your logic in your statement because not only did you have a vague response but failed to address question and instead went straight into telling me i can purchase the game or pirate, which is already a given for all games, but you fail to realize that coming to this website just to read comments and troll people doesnt make you seem any smarter and plus i only placed a simple question and ended up with irrelevant answers. if you really think that my question was dumb you could have ignored it, or could have just realized someone said the same thing you did already and that you are a total idiot for not noticing. i feel that it is sad you lash out at other people when your logical reasoning is weak.

          • Lowlightt permalink

            Sense you think you are smart I’ll let ya down gently. First the other translation is a machine translation that’s been out sense the game released for the most part. Second you asked “so where can i get the 2nd game?” You were quickly answered with google. You were also told its the first link. Which it still is. The fact that you can’t use google before you asked shows you weren’t even trying to find the game for yourself. Then you quickly got offended by someone telling you to go fucking google it, and then went on rampage of crying. Lets look at your second post

            “yeah thanks alot mr troll, the reason why i cant find one is the reason im asking and the way you are replying just tells me that you cant find it either so youre just blowing off steam on someone else. And if im wrong, then it just means that your wasting time being here because a crappy translated version already exists somewhere out there and you yourself dont know how to google and find it. i rest my case :/”

            the line “the reason why i cant find one is the reason im asking and the way you are replying just tells me that you cant find it either so you’re just blowing off steam on someone else. ”

            First he obviously found it as its the first google link if you searched it. Second you try attacking him instead of just searching for it again kind of stupid.

            Next we have “And if im wrong, then it just means that your wasting time being here because a crappy translated version already exists somewhere out there and you yourself dont know how to google and find it. i rest my case :/”

            Well you are wrong, and you’re actually wrong with the second part too. As I said above the crappy translation is the machine translation. And most of us have 1 already got it, or 2 are just waiting for rogue to finish as his is the official unofficial translation.

            Now lets look at your third post

            “uhuh and theres already an english translation from some other person and you are here why? maybe if you youtubed this game youd realize an english 1 already exists and i fail to see your logic in your statement because not only did you have a vague response but failed to address question and instead went straight into telling me i can purchase the game or pirate, which is already a given for all games, but you fail to realize that coming to this website just to read comments and troll people doesnt make you seem any smarter and plus i only placed a simple question and ended up with irrelevant answers. if you really think that my question was dumb you could have ignored it, or could have just realized someone said the same thing you did already and that you are a total idiot for not noticing. i feel that it is sad you lash out at other people when your logical reasoning is weak.”

            So lets begin. You didn’t receive irrelevant answers you were told to google the game and if you had you would have found it available for download legally or illegally pretty quickly. I did notice the other persons comment, I figured sense it didn’t click with your head I would give you the benefit of the doubt and try telling you again “GOOGLE IT” hoping maybe it would get through that think head of yours and you might actually try to “GOOGLE IT”. But you didn’t instead you felt the need to post another long rant where you attack my intelligence. The game is already out there this is a fan translation site, IE THE GAME ISN’T HERE. If you want it go find it yourself. THE TOOL TO USE IS GOOGLE.

            Now because of your ignorant ways, I have to post this ridiculously long rant, which makes me look like a smuck to everyone else here. So thanks for that.

            I’m the first replier & I have to say thanks to Lowlightt for defending it. I believe now that 99% of all questions on the internet is solvable with ONE answer “Google it.” The fact that Yesman threw a prissy-fit after I said this basic Cure-all response with a hint of frustration.

            Maybe it’s my ‘fault’ for hanging around the folks from Stack Overflow (& all Stack Exchange) for being generally more.. erm… google savvy/competent.

            Peace out before you have gone… too late, full retard.

  5. wildhawk permalink

    so will the next patch you put out include the updated GC that came out or will they by put in the 100% patch?

    • Yes, they will be a part of it.

      • anon permalink

        talking about the 2.04 patch, there isn’t any news about the broken saves?

        • Anonymous permalink

          Broken saves?
          When I got the 2nd game it came with no save folder so I was not able to save.
          If that’s what you are talking about I just copied and pasted an unused one from the 1st game and put it in there and it worked fine.

          • anon permalink

            no no, the producers of the game released a new patch for the MGQ2 with the version 2.04 this patch will be integrated on the next translation patch that rogue will release, it brings some new CGs and stuff, but this patch also introduce a bug (different file format?) where any save from any older patch (i.e. 33% patch from rogue) crash the game when you load. Rogue pinpointed that you can still enter on options and load the last auto-save losing just a minimal amount of gameplay. i just wanna know if he got any news about it.

    You are my hero. I really love the plot of Luka but because I don’t understand Japanese, it’s like waiting for the sequel of a book or movie. Thank you for your hard work. Really, thank you.

  18. IzanaginoOokami permalink

    I play to win, not lose, at least, not until after I finish…..
    As always I am astounded by how fast you work.
    I tried playing past 33%, but My ability to read and understand Japanese (especially kanji characters) is too low to make out the majority of what they are saying, which is unfortunate considering how much I enjoy the story, and Alice’s character. I got stuck near the end though due to a fight where the Fire Elemental multi-strike technique is compulsory to win and it crashes the game.

    Question: The Encylclopaedia pages you translated are separate image files, but the original Jap. ones are not visible, is it because they are archived? or are they atual text, and you just have the translated pages shown over the top of them?

    • For the encyclopedia question:

      In the original script, the Japanese characters are put into multiple strings and displayed per line. So that means that each Encyclopedia page was roughly 15 or so strings. Now when you put English characters into a string to display, any even numbered word (Even meaning number of characters) it would require a double byte space afterwords, or else the space would be eaten and it would run into the following word. So I had two choices:

      1. Count every word and put a double byte space after each even numbered word (This would take me a long, long time).
      2. Just change it from a text display to a picture.

      2 was far, far easier to do. I also wasn’t the person to come up with the idea of the picture, it was someone on hongfire.

  23. TheGreatHeinrich permalink

    Did you change the script to accommodate the spin-off stories, or did you change the story.ini files themselves?

    • Just the list.ini and added in that simple newline fix I did in part 1 until I finish the game and can spend more time putting in other stuff.

      • TheGreatHeinrich permalink

        Damn, that makes the scenarios I made play out weird. Basically after each line of dialogue will be a blank line. Well, at least after everything is complete, you should be able to implement my fix (it really isn’t that hard; I already supplied the code so all you have to do is copy & paste and you’re done)

        • Yeah, it would make the ones you made for part 2 not work with part 2. But I think you provided two version, one for part 1 and part 2 right? The ones you made for part 1 should work with it.

          • TheGreatHeinrich permalink

            Yeah, I did, and I went through that lengthy process you explained in this blog post about changing the story.ini and unpacking (and slightly editing) sprites/sounds because they don’t exist in MGQ1. It’s not that big of a deal, but some sprites look ugly. Other than that, they should work for the time being, but I don’t know if (assuming another idea comes into my head) I should create new stories based on your format or mine, at least before you decide to tamper with the spinoff section.

          • If I put in your format, I’d have to add in the line-breaks to my .ini files, right? I’ll be using that eventually since it gives people more control (and you can play japanese made ones), just wondering what I’ll have to do.

          • TheGreatHeinrich permalink

            Well, the way I see it, there’s 3 options.

            First is your fix. No line breaks required, but that means any scripts with working breaks will suddenly find blank lines after each click. It’s really more of an inconvenience than a game-crashing issue, but a big inconvenience nonetheless.

            Second is the original file, which requires line breaks (otherwise all text will display at once and immediately crash the game). For dialogue that contains single-byte chracters (in other words, English dialogue), the sum of all characters must be an EVEN number before a line break will work. If it’s an odd number, you need an extra space at the end before putting the line break. I believe I explained this in detail in one of your previous posts.

            Third is my code. Basically what it does is use a character that’s almost never used ( ` is the backquote character, it sits below the tilde “~”). You can write anything you want for dialogue, but after that, you put a ` after it. Then, you add “\” or “@” after the `. It’s guaranteed to work 100% of the time, and it even works for stories that already contain working line breaks.

            Here’s the important part that I guess applies specifically to you, Rogue: I also made a “failsafe” code that inserts a line break into lines that don’t contain ` or “\” or “@”, so that MGQ1 English-created stories are guaranteed to work. You don’t have to change anything in those stories you already translated for MGQ1; just transfer them and apply the list.ini change, and they work perfectly fine.

            For those who are still bothering to read this other than Rogue, this is what it comes down to:

            EXAMPLE: (Disregarding the quotation marks, of course)
            “This is a dialogue line. I can write whatever I want in here and the line break should work.`\”
            “This is also a dialogue line. Unlike the one above, this one will stay on screen after you click.`@”

            Didn’t I send you an e-mail about it earlier?

          • TheGreatHeinrich permalink

            Obviously I didn’t write my stories using the new ` format because that will only mess up other players, who use your original, untampered script file to play. If you decide to put it in now for your next %60 something or other patch, it won’t affect any previous stories, but it should give players easy control over those line breaks if they want to make new stories after the patch.

            Slightly-related question: Did you figure out how the “variable” commands work in the spinoff section? I figure it has something to do with conditional statements, which allows for better branching off in spinoff stories, like ” v1 = 1, goto this specific section” or something

          • Anonymous permalink

        i got pass her thanks to some comment somewhere
        you got to count how many atks she do before that killer one (like the quadruple-giga)
        so you know when to use your quadruple-giga (you must use it at the same round than her

    Hey, Rogue. I just wanted to ask if it was at all possible for you to take ‘donations’, instead of a ‘fee’ for translating Monmusu Quest? Because Staircasesubs takes donations, and they are a ‘non-profit’ team, just like you. So, I’m pretty sure you could take ‘donations’ as just a gift from your fans, and have it in no way relate to your translations…I don’t really see a legality issue in that…I mean, ANYONE can take donations…I could ask people to donate money to me, just because, and if they did, there would be no problem with that…tell me what you think about this.

    • Anonymous permalink

      It’s pretty stupid anyways, an unauthorized translation is a legal issue anyways, so torotoro could shut him down already if they felt like it.

      • Anonymous permalink

        Why would they try and shut him down? Thats just stupid, nobody would even bother buying this game at all if it wasen’t in english. Unless theres quite a few that love to throw there wallet at people just too see very expensive cg pictures. Just sayin.

        • Anonymous permalink

          I’m pretty much sure that they did something like 95% of their profit from japanease dl site,
          now i don’t know if not japanease people buy it from there too.
          Anyway i agree on the fact that it would be pointless to shut this down, it just opens up their game to more selling

          • Anonymous permalink

            Exactly my point. Adding a donation button wouldn’t change anything.

          • Will permalink

            Who said anything about ‘changing’ something? I just thought it would be nice to donate money to Rogue, simply because we wanted to…while we can’t donate money to him as compensation for translating this game, we could at least donate money as a thank you for doing so. As I said–if he doesn’t ask for money in order to translate the game, but accepts money as a token of appreciation, then there is no legality issue, so what’s the big deal? I mean, we could just send him money for being such an awesome translator, and not because he’s currently translating Monmusu Quest…

    where the 66% exactly ends? before the last island but after retreiving the salamander there is a sort of quik return in the other parts of the continent + pirates ship
    is that inluded or willit be in the 100% patch?
    or there will be a 75% patch?

    • Anonymous permalink

      As I understand it, there will be 3 patches: 33%, 66%, and 100%

      I’m guessing the 66% patch ends somewhere between Granberia (3) and Crab Girl (2)

    I LOVE U ROUGE I LOVE HOW U ARE DOING THIS FOR FREE. I am amazed about this I haven’t heard of the game until recently probably about 2months ago but when I did I had to see it since I am searching for games like this and a few of my RL friends recommended this so I gave it a try the one u have translated and I got to tell u I am addicted to it.

    So thank you very much I don’t care if u answer this but I am sincerely thankful for all ur help and effort for translating I think I am also speaking for everyone who is reading this and commented as well.

    • ThePinkOne permalink

      Rogue translates these things because he finds it as fun. Knowing two languages is knowing two worlds, and transferring from one to another must feel at least somewhat amazing. Rogue can’t take donations or ToroToro Resistance, creators of MGQ and a long series of MG audio dramas, have the right to shut Rogue down for illegally making money off their product. It sucks, but the simple joy is the payment itself.

      • Anonymous permalink

        I might point out that from a legal point of view, they could already shut him down if they wanted.

        • Aaron permalink

          No not really depending what region he is from and even ACTA, SOPA and PIPA can’t do shit really if he is in America maybe ACTA since that is world wide but am getting ahead of myself.

          Regardless these laws aren’t even passed yet and if they are u can say the internet is officially dead since we all downloaded something illegally from the net and translate games without buying the actual game.

          And speaking of legal shit theres no point in even saying it since it has yet to happen seriously why do people like u make a point of this crap

          • Anonymous permalink

            This has nothing to do with ACTA or SOPA, if he accepts money for someones work he can be sued by those people.

          • Anonymous permalink

            He makes a translation, an unauthorized translation to be exact. That means Torotoro won’t earn anything when they go through the trouble of making an English translation. Accepting donations isn’t the same as getting paid by the way.

        • Anonymous permalink

          That might be true, but why would they want to do that?

          Neither is it possible to play the translated game without the original Japanese version, nor does Rogue supply or encourage links to illegal copys of their game. Also, the patch doesn’t circumvent any copy protections (not that there are any).
          As long as Rogue doesn’t accept any money for the patch it’ll be a win-win situation for ToroToro. They could even ask Rogue to use his translation if they ever wanted to do a localization.

    Transfered game file before getting 50 Evaluations from illias, I’m at 53 and I can’t seem to unlock her, am I doing it wrong? Do I have to unlock her in the first game or something? Or do I have to get 100?

    • Anonymous permalink

      You can only get it by doing evaluations of the monsters that show up in the first game. The evaluations of the monsters that show in in MGQ2 won’t count towards Ilias’s scene.

    Question: Is MGQ part 2 the final part?

    • Anonymous permalink

      No, there will be a Part 3 released this summer.

      • Anonymous permalink

        Oh kk, thanks. I did not play through part 2 yet, waiting for translation, so from what I know, the first 33% of part 2 is the 3rd spirit then by 66% it should be done with 4th and I doubt the last 33% will finish unless they rushed the ending… but I am surprised and also glad that there is a 3rd part. Thinking how another 100% from part 3+the 33% from part 2 will make a conclusion… or will they troll me with a short part 3? Well hope they surprise me… oh I just remembered the little colored stones too that the protagonist finds on the way; I guess there is room for another part after all… but I assume part 3 will be the last? I don’t want it too long like part 4 and 5 because I will have to wait for release and translations ;p

          Luka’s goal was to head to Hellgondo to defeat the Monster Lord, until he learned that Alice wasn’t all evil. However, because the Four Heavenly Knights are distorting peace by doing w/e the hell they want (Granberia attacking two towns, Alma Elma creating that storm between Sentora and Illias Continents, etc.), Luka continues pushing to Hellgondo.

          Part 1 covers Illias Continent as well as Natalia and Sabasa regions to obtain Sylph and Gnome. Part 2 moves onto Noah and Gold regions to recruit Undine and Salamander as well as covering Hellgondo. Part 3 will end up going back to every place because of some “event” created by Illias.

    Hello RogueTranslator:

    The “Lastly” part scared me. I’m not native english user but as I understood, you merged things together “and” deleted content? So how does this affect the game for us now? Do you have deleted ingame parts permanently? Or in which way do you have altered it in detail? And What do you mean with Marco story?

    I hope I misunderstood this and it isn’t this worse as I understood it! xD

    Please explain more detailed for “no insiders” like me :)

    I can’t wait till this gets finished translating. I can’t read japanese. And the first part was pretty epic…..

  76. Anonymous permalink

    So here’s a question. I’ve pressed forward in the game past the point of the translation, using a terribly-translated walkthrough. However, I’m at the part where you refight crab girl (called crap girl in the guide, lol). I use undine’s skill, and then try to use the new slash. The animation shows up, but then I get an error in moonspeak. The only parts that come through are:

    099.txt line:180176
    |mov $sel2,” damage!”
    |if %damage_nobr=1 skip 3
    >$sel1%damage$sel2

    Wat do? Should I just wait for Rogue to translate up to there?

    • Anonymous permalink

      And to save anyone the trouble of answering with this, I am running in in the japanese region already

      • Anonymous permalink

        Running as Japanese region wouldn’t be the problem anyways since you are able to play.

        Rogue said something about not fixing crashes past of what he translated, so you should just wait 2 or so days for the translation patch and it’ll be fixed.

        Did you use the machine patch over Rogue’s patch? That could be the problem.

        • Anonymous permalink

          The machine patch itself could be causing the problems, too. There were various parts in the game that kept crashed when I used it.

          • Anonymous permalink

            I haven’t patched it past Rogue’s 33% patch. That means no developer patch. I think that’s what you’re asking. But okay, there’s no way around it until rogue’s done with that section, which won’t be until he probably does the 100% patch. Damn.

    I have tried using applocale on mon_que.exe and mon_queNOwordwrap.exe with no luck.
    I`ve tried reinstalling the patch and even set my language to Japanese. These random errors
    pops up alot when i try to load any saves from the original monster quest 2. (My first playthrough)

    Please help me shed some light on this as i want to enjoy this game to the fullest!

    Thanks in advance.

      Ah yes, i quite remember this one. If im guessing correctly you try to open those file at MGQ2 right?
      Well don’t, treat it as a monster laboratory file and open it by using the monster laboratory feature at the first MGQ. It should work.

    • TheGreatHeinrich permalink

      There should be two folders in the .RAR archive. One of them is specifically for MGQ 1 (it should read \HeinrichsTaleForChapter1), the other one is specifically for MGQ 2 (it should read \HeinrichsTaleForChapter2).

    • TheGreatHeinrich permalink

      Scratch that, I meant the other scenario, the Coliseum. \ColiseumForChapter1 is for MGQ 1’s \mon_labo folder and \ColiseumForChapter2 is for MGQ 2’s \mod folder.

    • TheGreatHeinrich permalink

      (Damn, I was hoping to avoid triple-posting. Things always slip my mind!)

      Also, I noticed that you got the error when it tried to display the Slime Girl’s sprite. That’s because it’s referencing a MGQ 1 sprite, which means you must combine MGQ1 and MGQ2 together to get it to work. If you haven’t downloaded MGQ 1 yet, well… use Google to your advantage. I believe Gnome-sama said this in his blog post below the side-story download links, and Rogue has a detailed explanation of how to combine the two games into one on one of his earlier blog posts.
