MGQ2 3-20-2012 Update

March 20, 2012

Well, it has been a little over 3 months since I first started. As I said right from the start, 3 months would be the bare minimum time needed to translate the game. As many are aware, I had to go on a couple trips for my job, which obviously would impact that timeframe. I’m still not close enough to give a date, but there is a 0% chance it would be out before next Friday (3/30) . It’s winding down to the end here though, folks.

 

City     – 5175/5175            – 100%
Story    – 17987/19600        – 91.8%
Battle    – 73344/83000        – 88.4%
Ency    – 1012/1450         – 69.8%
Total     – 97518/109225        – 89.3%

Also, I incorporated the 2.05 patch into the script. Mostly just bug fixes and some additions to the Monster Laboratory system.

    No hurries man take your time and know that we all appreciate your work here

    we will be happy when it comes out is all

    Did you run into some weird repeating text problems in the mon_labo, specifically in a battle?

    • I haven’t tested it at all. Putting that off to the end.

      • TheGreatHeinrich permalink

        Alright, cool. The new patch has a few kinks and the devs themselves made a serious game-crashing but easily fixable typo. I’m working it all out so I’ll send you a (mostly) ready-made script when I’m done.

    Hey Rogue, I’m a little curious. I don’t really expect you to give out many personal details or anything to your fans here, but I’ve been out of school on a Gap year for about a year and a half now and hearing about your job kind of intrigues me. Would you mind giving me a little hint as to what line of work you’re in? I swear it’s not for more Chinese imprisonment rants. The thought of traveling really intrigues me, I’ve never been much further than two provinces away (Canada), so if I could get a job where traveling were not only a part of the roll, but a requirement? I’d be overjoyed. Man, I probably sound like a brat right now.

    Regardless, keep up the good work, Rogue. You really are good at what you do, you have no idea how many horribly translated VN I’ve come across. Thanks to your writing abilities, you’ve really allowed a genre of game that is designed to be immersive — hold onto it’s roots. It wasn’t until you asked us our opinion of “degeso” that I realized that. For that, I thank you. Keep up the good work, I hope you find time to translate other things after this, too. It’d be a real shame to see your skill disappear all of a sudden.

    P.s. When were you planning to close the poll on that debate, anyway?

    • Jnon permalink

      You don’t realize that there is a difference between the words roll and role, you have poor grammar, your lack of self-confidence is overwhelmingly apparent by your statement, “I probably sound like a brat right now,” and you don’t know how to use Google. Good luck to you.

      • Braginski permalink

        I’m pretty self confidant in most situations. Breaching someone’s privacy isn’t one of them. Poor grammar? Maybe. I never claimed to be Stephen Fry. As for the roll, role issue; stupid typo on my part. I don’t really think that’s the end of the world. You might, but it’s not like this was some sort of official letter. It was an earnest question and a little bit of praise. Also, using google to search “Jobs and travel” (Because I assume that’s what you’re referring to) isn’t quite what I had in mind. I was particularly curious about rogues case. It’s not that important, though, and I thank you for your concern.
        Next time, I’ll show no sign of apologizing for what could very likely annoy someone. You seem very good at doing that, so in the same way I asked rogue for advice, I’ll ask you. How do you suggest I become more obnoxious and intrusive? You seem to have it down to a Tee.

        • Yagerou permalink

          You’ve won the internet, sir. Enough said.

          • Wrandral permalink

            True, some peoples don’t seem to know politeness even if it is bitting their asses

        • Jnon permalink

          I feel like such a jerk. I’m sorry for attacking you; it was the result of displaced frustration due to certain circumstances in my life that in no way need to be projected on anyone for any reason. I may also have some undiagnosed disorder. Again, I apologize and hope that I did not affect your mood or day in any way.

          • Braginski permalink

            Don’t worry about it, Jnon. What’s done is done; I had no intention of holding a grudge.
            And thanks for your apology, it means a lot. I’m sorry, myself, for calling you obnoxious and intrusive; It seems you can be pretty civil at times too. I hope we get along from here on out.

          • Wow, you two are some of the most polite argumentators I’ve ever seen. Not that that’s a bad thing.

    • I think I put the poll at 7 days or something. As for the job, it’s IT stuff in our large corporation’s international division.

      • Braginski permalink

        A large corporation, eh? I suppose I’ll have to aim high. Thank you for sharing, by the way.
        7 days? Since it was posted four days ago, that leaves three. When I first voted, Degeso had been in he lead by a huge margin, so now that puns are catching up, it could be anyone’s game by then. I anticipate the end result.

        And to Yagerou; I actually feel really honored. Is that weird? Thank you, too.

        • AnonS permalink

          Well, you could always join the military. Enlisted isn’t as great as Officer, but the Officer Accession programs are generally extremely competitive especially based on the branch. After you put in your time though as an officer, you can generally really easily roll right into Corporate America, which you can’t really do as enlisted.

          Outside of that path, you can get into a top university/IVY (or in Canada, I guess McGill or something). Or there is the family connections path, but that one is out of most people’s control and if it was an option you could just travel around without needing a job in the first place.

          • Braginski permalink

            Military would be great if I didn’t fear the chance of dying. I might be heading to SMU in NS next year; but I don’t know if I want to go into science or business. It’s looking like I’ll probably go for the latter. Thanks for your help, AnonS.

      • “Next friday” usually means the friday following the upcoming one. If you want to talk about the upcoming day of the week, most people would use “this friday”. Anyway, that’s why I put the date itself in parenthesis to make sure there was no confusion.

          • In fact no one has posted the statement “Someone posts that on every topic, and a mongoloid like you always replies. Please grow a brain before you make any more comments.” before the anonymous fellow above, thus your attempt at a troll has resulted in failure. I encourage you to take some time out and think about why you failed this time so that you can improve upon that and not make the same mistake a second or third time.

    three comments. To Random Troll, he has justification for that error, if it is indeed an error, as he has an awful lot to worry about.
    second, to anon3: vulgarity and lack of respect are going to accomplish nothing besides getting people mad. i’m sure that all of us are eager, but that’s no excuse to be a misurandus asinus about it.
    third: Thanks for the enduring effort, rogue– looking forward to the completed patch.

      When someone says “next ___day” as opposed to “this ___day,” They are referring to that day in the next week, not the current one.

    I’m honestly much more excited about seeing Oh Kaname, Valkyrie, Gargoyle daughter, Cupid, Noriyuki spider princess, Lamia Sister, an angel, and Angel 2 in MGQ3 than anything. They are all hundreds of times more tempting and beautiful than most of the monster-girls we’ve seen thus far!

    • IzanaginoOokami permalink

      akaname means red (aka) licker (name)
      Japanese yokai that licks mold and scum from outdoor bathtubs, not very dangerous, but kind of freaky and not something you want to see while having a soak. very ugly with knobbly red skin and long tongue and no clothes.
      I have a book called the Japanese Yokai Survival Guide, that contains everything from kappas, Tengu and kitsune to more harmless stuff, like Jinmenju, Toire no Hanako, and Tsukumogami.

    On that Kamidori Cheat engine I posted in Rogue’s previous post. Hp goes up to 500 safely. Do not mess with the sp and fp it will crash your game. most of everything else goes up 100, if you level and you are above 100 it will go back to 100 base. just play with it and you will find out which attributes are which. The items go up to 999 and that is a different tab in the trainer. Try not to go in a dungeon while using the trainer, you could also crash or lag. it really does save a lot of time, but I don’t recommend using it if you want the full gaming experience

        • Anonymous permalink

          What is the last tab for****

          • Kyon Smith permalink

            the buttons on the bottom controls which save file you use. you can only edit the file you are currently playing so turn on the game. the left most button on the bottom loads the game stats. the right most changes the file. as long as you dont save, the changes aren’t permanent but you can save any where you want so that is an unneeded worry. . The last tab doesnt really do anything. when you press the middle button on the bottom you get some weird code. it is pretty much useless since you will only need the edit characters and items tabs. Tab 1 is money, 2 is characters but dont mess with it, 3 is also characters go ahead and play with it but dont mess with the fs or sp. also before a certain level or ranking for each character your character will rest its stats to its current max. at around level 50 or 55 depending on the character, you can go up to 100 for normal stats, if you want to change fs or sp use the growth items. you cant change stats during actual fights. tab 3 is item and materials. buttons on side automatically max them, 4 is accessories and equipment and furniture. you dont need to mess with that since you will be able to make infinite of your own. you kind of want to make your own stuff for ranking your synthesis and evaluation. no idea what the last tab does. it seems useless.

      Regarding Route Branches

      The game branches between the three heroine routes starting from Chapter 4.

      Yuela Route:

      In one of the ☆ events with Yuela at Wil’s home, choose to deepen your relationship with her when given the option (event available starting Chapter 2).
      View Yuela’s measurement events (the first one is mandatory, the second one might not be).
      Requires Aht Lv. 6+ or Sharty Lv. 12+
      Uya joins the party.
      Melodiana joins the party (or is a guest).

      Serawi Route:

      Don’t meet the requirements for Yuela’s route.
      In an event at Wil’s home, choose to deepen your relationship with her when given the option (event available starting Chapter 2 when Store is Lv. 4+)
      Aht joins the party.
      Suina joins the party.
      Crayl joins the party.

      Emelita Route:

      Don’t meet the requirements for both Yuela and Serawi’s routes.

      Anything aside from the above events has no effect on route selection.

    I am at a beginner Japanese level and this will surely help. I do have some tools that will help in the accuracy of the translation (Japanese word editor, dictionary, etc…)

    And once again, Rogue thanks!

    • Fanservicefan permalink

      Which ones do you have in mind to translate?

      • Ryusen permalink

        I’ve downloaded a few from the Japanese repository
        http://ux.getuploader.com/mon_mod/

        Right now I’m working on “Oppai Ririi Tengaku” which should translate into “Lily’s Boobie Heaven” or something like that. She’s a succubus

        There’s also a feisty wolf girl and a Tamamo one… there’s never enough Tamamo XP
        Hopefully I get the hang of this by the time MG3 is released so I can help rogue with the whole process

      Run the game through the Japanese locale in applocale. It works perfectly on 64 bit systems and/or windows XP. The code is in Japanese, so when you computer tries to read it in English code, your machine flips out. Strangely enough, the translated portions of the game CAN be run without it on some machines, yours does not seem to fit in this category.

    rogue, do you ever think to translate any game from Vanadis?

  66. Gene permalink

    Thanks Rogue, its your translation that even got me playing this series. This blog is one of five links I cycle through every few days in my bookmarks.

    Just out of interest, and desperate hope, do you plan to go back to translating more of Violated Heroine at some point? Your translation patches were something I had been waiting for and made the game playable. I imagine there has been more content added, for Nanako and Serina both, and there were a few interesting scenes in the desert-casino town that would hav been nice to experiance without squinting at AGTH. =D

    The fact that a single person is capable of translating that much text in such a small amount of time is amazing.

    • Woof Woof, Im a dog. permalink

      It depends on the person, but yes. IT is pretty much a miracle. I can imagine a programmer writing that much code in that period of time, but actually translating something from a different language that quickly seems kinda unlikely, especially with kanji…. OF course, this comes from someone who gets headaches when hearing/reading ANY language other then English (Not-English dyslexic?)

      • I’ve mentioned it once before, but the “line count” isn’t truly a 1:1 line comparision. Much of the text contains code for images/battle stuff. Overall, the actual translatable lines are only about ~40% of what’s listed.

        • Anonymous permalink

          Yeah, I noticed that. Luka’s surrendering, name’s, and some other stuff are generally repeated. And with the way the system works, Rogue most likely only needs to translate those lines once. Since they’re repeated often, I can see how those particular lines may rack up the total line count quite a bit. Also, I’d imagine not having to translate the actual code (if it’s not broken, then don’t fix it) into English would help some as well.

          • TheGreatHeinrich permalink

            The fact that NScripter sucks at working with English text makes it that much more difficult, so there were ugly workarounds that had to be done to make it work (“Save Locations” being the most obvious one).

        • Woof Woof, Im a dog. permalink

          Ive noticed a few lines that stayed translated after I went past the part that is translated, and I was shocked at how little actually carried over. The only reused lines I saw were “But luka dodges like the wind,” and “But a gust of wind blocks your vision.”

  73. Fox_Knight permalink

    i wonder are there any story’s in the Monster Laboratory that involve the four heavenly knights? I found one with the four spirit’s.

    • Anonymous permalink

      Monster Laboratory system. What is that?

    • Ryusen permalink

      Yes there is a scenario but it isn’t translated (Japanese repository only).

      It’s a pretty long one too. All I have to say is its title:
      “The Four Heavenly Knights Gang Rape”

  74. Stormstrider permalink

    Hi folks! I find a new monster girls game,if someone have interest, the game can be seen here:http://www.getchu.com/soft.phtml?id=732026

    • Dargoth permalink

      Hentai content isn’t bad at all, but the story is a joke and the gameplay is atrocious. Sounds familiar… Worth a download for the scenes at least.

      Here’s a 100% save: http://www.mediafire.com/download.php?t7d2orcoo0p7kd2

      Trust me, you don’t actually want to play the game. I cheated to make the save file.

      If you do want to play it… there are 3 good endings and you have a time limit of 99 days.
      1. Get your mood with the Succubus over 999
      2. Create the Lecher’s Stone (Philosopher’s Stone joke…)
      3. Create the 4 pieces of armor for your girls (best ending, gets you the credits)

      Considering the time limit, it’s best to focus on one ending.
      1. Items to boost the Succubus’s mood are the first in the list. If you aren’t going for this ending, just make the cheap ones to give her every day.
      2. To make the stone, the items are in the second column. 3 rock fragments to make a shiny rock, 3 of those for each elemental stone. Make all of those for the Lecher’s Stone (it’s in the left column: 淫者の石).
      3. The four items below the Lecher’s Stone are each for an event, each of which will give you an item needed for the armors, which are directly across in the right column.

      You need to save up 500 l of semen to unlock the other areas. Rest of the game is just clicking over and over. Not terribly hard to figure out.

      Applocale has some issues in 32 bit systems, Ive noticed. I have a 64 bit machine and it runs flawlessly, on other peoples 32 bit machines, AP LOCALE WILL TEAR YOUR SILLY PROGRAMS APART… Ehhm Eh. Eh heh. Sorry.

    • TheGreatHeinrich permalink

      You patched MGQ1. The patch Rogue is currently working on is for MGQ2, a standalone game completely separate from MGQ1. You need to download MGQ2 (Google is your friend), then download Rogue’s English patch & patch it from there.

    We need to patch the 66% into the folder with the 33%?
    But I didnt download the 33% and I cant download it anymore from the site’s link, can anyone help?

    • Anonymous permalink

      Read the “Patch Readme”. In case you don’t have it.

      1. How to install
      Simply unrar the files into the MGQ2 base folder. Choose to overwrite when prompted.
      Remember, MGQ Part 2 is NOT the same as MGQ Part 1. Do not try to extract this part 2
      patch into MGQ Part 1’s folder.

      2. Patch Contents
      Everything from the start to about 2/3 of the way through the game.

      3. Saving
      Only save at “Save Locations”, like in the first game.

      4. Combining Part 1 and Part 2.
      To combine Part 1 with Part 2, copy the “arc.nsa” file from your MGQ Part 1 folder. Paste this
      arc.nsa file into Part 2’s folder, choosing “Yes” to overwrite the current file.

      Once copied over, launch MGQ Part 2, and go to the “Extra” Menu. In there, choose “Part 1
      Converstion”. If you copied over the arc.nsa file, it will complete successfully. Once combined,
      monsters from part 1 are available to view in the encyclopedia. “New Game” will also now start
      from Part 1, at the very start.

      5. Importing Part 1’s save.
      Go to your part 1 directory, to the \save folder. Inside this folder, you need to copy “gloval.sav”.
      Paste this “gloval.sav” file into Part 2’s \save folder. After that, go to the “Extra” menu and
      choose “Part 1 SaveImport”. It will import the save file and start you on part 2.

      6. Loading from Part 2 33% save
      A bug with loading patches may appear in this version. If your save crashes when you try to load
      the game, you need to load from the autosave. From the main menu, choose:

      Extras -> Autosave Data -> Yes
