A Previous Game Now With Wordwrap
Just a quick non MGQ post – With Dargoth’s assistance, I believe I fixed the word wrap issues on Thief and Sword, an old game I partially translated about two years ago.
You can download the game here: http://bitsnoop.com/18%E7%A6%81%E3%82%B2%E3%83%BC%E3%83%A0-090918-%E7%B8%81-yukari-thief-and-sw-q5067622.html
If anyone tries it out, let me know if you run into a crash anywhere.
The game is set up as a heavily branching “Choose your own adventure” type of game. There are around 525 modular scenes each with 2 or 3 choices that branch off of each scene. It’s a fairly graphic, violent, rapey kind of game (female protag). I translated all of the story scenes for one character, and roughly 2/3 of the H-scenes. The other H-scenes were translated by panop857 from the Hongfire forums.
What isn’t translated
Many pictures in the game are not translated. This includes item descriptions, some config screens, and the achievement list. The more important pictures in combat / inventory screen are translated.
What is translated
Just Shalt’s route is translated. That means all of her story scenes, all of her H-Scenes, and all of the “Shared” scenes between her and Raika.
Delete all instances of patch.xp3 previously in the Thief and Sword folder. Patch.xp3, patch1.xp3, etc… Put patch.xp3 from the download into the Thief and Sword folder. (Make sure it’s the only file marked patch.xp3 in the folder).
General FAQ about game:
Q. How does combat work?
A. Before combat starts, go to the item screen to pick weapons to use in a fight. The items listed in the squares on the right are the items you will use in battle. There’s no difference between
the A and B box. When you click on an item, the item description comes up. The top numbers are the offensive strength. The first number is the static damage, and the second one is the potential bonus.
The bottom number is the defensive strength. The first number is the static number, and the next one is the potential bonus. There are various penalties that can apply if your character is naked. Shalt
is best with daggers and blades, so smaller weapons are easier for her to use. Potions and herbs heal HP when used on defense.
Q. I can’t damage the final boss / other monster!
A. You must have played it too safe and didn’t collect enough weapons, then! Unfortunately, if you cannot pass a roadblock, you need to start over or take a different route.
Q. I run out of health before I kill the final boss / other monster!
A. You must have played it too risky and didn’t conserve enough health, then! Unfortunately, if you cannot pass a roadblock, you need to start over or take a different route.
Q. What are these flags and flag checks?
A. It’s the way the game determines if you have met a particular requirement, or seen a specific scene. They are important for keeping the story consistent with what your actions have been to that point.
Q. How many scenes are in the game?
A. Around 450. Around 55 of them are game over / death scenes.
Q. What are these strange images that pop up in Japanese every so often?
A. Those are the achievements. You get them for beating certain monsters, or seeing certain scenes.
Q. What’s the list of all the translated H-Scenes in the replay list?
2, 2a, 2b, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16, 20, 22, 24, 26, 28, 30, 32, 42, 43, 44, 45, 46, 47, 48, 49, 50, 51
Q. Holy hell I game over every time. Where’s the walkthrough?
A. Right here
