So I thought I'd try out Genius of Sappheiros, but the English translation pack I downloaded seems to just straight up break the game. I have the base 3.0, and the translation said I need 3.1, but I can't find any patch for that. Am I just doing something wrong?

I tried looking all around just now, including on Strawberry Bose's website, but I couldn't seem to find a download link either.

Fortunately(?) I am a pack-rat that never deletes anything, so I still had the update file in my folders. This should do it.

Hrm, now the patcher looks like it's giving me an error about MD5 checksums with config.exe, Engine.dll, and Game.pak. Times like this I wish I remembered more Japanese from my high school days!
Edit: And yes, I did make sure to remove the English patch .paks from the folder before running it.

Haven't read Japanese in awhile, but I think it says 10-mon yen. The Japanese counting system is a little different - they separate every 5 digits instead of every four like the rest of us, so one mon is 10,000. So it should be 100,000 yen, which is about $1000. Sounds about right for a solid gold Cirno

("What the... Did I just read 'translation patch'...?")

That's right. We're going to have a self-updating, multilingual translation patch for the in-game dialog of the Touhou 14 trial a few hours after we got our hands on the game. We've worked for over 1 year to make this possible, and now, we finally have the best chances to pull this off. Of course, this requires that there aren't any major engine changes in the areas that affect us, but EoSD was the last time this happened anyway, so it's highly unlikely.

However,
these "few hours" merely refer to the technical side of things. We're going to release it once that's done, whether the actual translations have been completed or not.

Thus, we need your help.
Yes, you Japanese → English translators who usually immediately translate these after their release.

Don't just put up your translations on your blog or webspace where nobody would find them.
Don't just post them on /jp/ where they'll get sagebombed with lots of "hurr durr $newchar is mai waifu" posts within minutes.
Don't wait for Touhou Wiki to put up the pages to translate the in-game dialog there - rather help them by doing everything else!

Instead, enter the in-game dialog translations into Touhou Patch Center - which will have the original Japanese texts in easily translatable form sooner than any other site. By helping us, you will bring your translations to the fans in the only speed worthy of the Touhou fandom: "Faster Than Light™".
Let's make this happen.

This is some kind of magical wizardry.

see that's why you release both a game and demo at the same time. you play one while translating the other.

4 hours estimated for a translation though, goddamn.

4 hours is for the patch, not the translation. Their system allows for partial patches, apparently. The idea is to make an auto-updating wiki-based patch that can be updated constantly with no input from the patch-creators. The 4 hour estimate is for how long it will take to tweak their system to the new game's idiosyncrasies. Translation might occur simultaneously, but it's not linked to that timeframe. Translation will occur both before and after the patch is released.

Honestly, it's not even really a patch. It's a new thing they're experimenting with.

Volt Catfish posted:

The idea is that they've created interchangeable tech that works for any Touhou game (except the Tasofro ones), so when the final release comes out they can quickly port it over and have the translation start half-done. In a playable state. It's not a patch, it's a new patching paradigm. It also retroactively patches all the previous games, although obviously people don't care about that quite as much.

Interesting. I've heard that people have been datamining the bugfix patch already released on the website and have determined that the final boss is Hata no Kokoro, a youkai Noh mask created by Prince Shoutoku back when he/she was alive. My random rumor is slightly more plausible in that it satisfies the "character named after kanji from title rule" but maybe that's a reason to disbelieve it. Kokoro seems a bit too straightforward.

Also, Mamizou confirmed.

From what I hear, she was confirmed even before the big rush of reveals. Apparently a freelancer TasoFro hired to work on the game made a tweet (that he deleted shortly afterwards) hinting one of the playable characters in her speaking mannerism.

I would argue that "hinted" is different from "confirmed", but okay, she was reconfirmed.

I thought Tasofro said that they had revealed all the characters that were returning from previous games. Why didn't they reveal Mamizou alongside the others, then? (Not that I doubt you, it just seems weird to not reveal Mamizou early when she was expected from the beginning).

After picking Koishi as a character and getting hit once it is revealed that it was really Mamizou in disguise.

They've been hiding playable characters from old titles in all the fighting games pre-release, and Mamizou sort of makes sense since Zun's playing her up as a member of the Secret Mystery Fucklord Club in Forbidden Scrollery.

On a related note Volume 2 of Forbidden Scrollery has been coming out. Chapter 6 and 7 are a two-parter, Chapter 7 is out but untranslated, Mexican imports are involved.

Presumably because she's related to the plot. She's the second-to-last boss. Incidentally, there's a nico livestream of the game now. So we've seen her in action.
