MGQ2 Full Patch
Well, it’s the full translation patch of the second game! There’s only the third and final part to go! As always crashes are possible, so check back here to see if a fix was posted before posting in the comments about it!
How to acquire the game
http://www.dlsite.com/ecchi-eng/work/=/product_id/RE087736.html . It’s made by a small group that commissions artwork. That means additional sales should lead to more commissions, for a higher quality game! If you aren’t going to buy it anyway, then you should easily be able to find a less legitimate version on your own.
How to Install
Unrar the contents of the .rar to your game directory (It’s the directory that contains mon_que.exe). Overwrite all files it asks to overwrite. Depending on where you downloaded the game itself from, it may have already been pre-patched. MGQ Part 2 is not the same game as Part 1. They are separate games.
Issues with the Patch
- Saving – Due to the way nScripter handles saving, you can only save at specific points in the game. Only save when you see “Save Location”, and don’t change the comment text. I know you can save it anywhere by crashing the game, but that can corrupt your save file.
- Loading old save files. There may be a freeze when loading old saves. If you cannot load your old saves, load your autosave. Choose “Extras -> Auto-Save Data -> Yes”
- I had to disable certain parts of the Monster Laboratory Side-Story creation script in the game since it was interfering with save files. I’ll fix it when Torotoro fixes it, since it’s an issue in the original script as well. It only interferes with battle-making, not normal scene creation.
I’m trying to load an old patch, but it isn’t working/putting me in a strange place/I can’t progress!
Any save file BEFORE the end of the 66% patch is a valid save to load from. ANY save created after the appearance of the final “Save Location” of the 66% patch is not guaranteed to work. If you’re stuck, you can try loading from the autosave (In the extra menu).
I crash very quickly at the start of the game!
You need to run the game in Japanese locale. Either set your computer to it, or use a program called Applocale. (Search google for instructions).
The text is all compacted together, and nearly unreadable!
You need East Asian Language packs for the font used in the game. Search Google for East Asian Language Pack for how to install it.
How do I combine 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. ONLY arc.nsa, not any other nsa files. Then launch the game, go to the extra menu, and choose “Part 1 Conversion”.
How do I import my save from Part 1?
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. Do not do this unless you chose to create cleared save data at the end of part 1.
Special thanks to all those who’ve helped by pointing out mistakes and by editing images or hacking the executable (SomeLoliCatgirl, Xilium, Zinny, The guy who sends me comprehensive mistakes via e-mail). Also to TheGreatHeinrich for the text fixes, spin off story compatibility and numerous other things.
