After quite some annoying delay due to the busy period, we managed to keep our deadline clean (well, too bad for a 2008 release).
Witch Hunt is proud to announce that the new patch for Umineko no Naku Koro ni is available!
The new patch completely covers Episode 3, Banquet of the Golden Witch. You can get it with the following link:
As usual, please do not overwrite the old patch if you were using it. Rather, please delete it and then install the v3.1. Worry not, the save states are not in the patch folder.
VERY IMPORTANT: If you used our previous partial patch for episode 3, there might be a high chance that you will have a glitch when you use your old save state. We strongly suggest out not to use any save state that has a weird behaviour when you are playing it. This is because you might be led to a completely different chapter and/or you can see some bugged or displaced sprite that can SPOIL you very badly!
Therefore, we strongly advice you to either start from scratch or test the safest save state you have made thus far.
Important note for Vista users: It has come to our attention that the sound fix for Onscripter deals a severe sound lag glitch for those who use Windows Vista. Therefore, we are asking you to use the previous version Onscripter we used for the partial patch. However, if you already delete it, please download this onscripter with this link.
Our apologies for this inconvenience, we will try to fix this issue as soon as possible.
Please be sure to check the NEW readme file as some specific points must be taken in account for the full use of the patch (a lot of content has been changed, and the format is itself, easier to read).
Log of the recent changes
-Episode 3 fully translated
-Correction for typos, grammar mistakes and missing lines in episode 3 (first half)
-Fix of a bug that prevented Onscripter to play sounds that were repeatedly played within a short period (i.e the stakes)
-Major changes and additional info in the readme
Please don’t hesitate to leave your feedbacks, comments, troubleshoots and so forth here!
Also, I would like to bring up again the matter concerning Ryukishi’s letter: As we implied before, we will insist on the fact that we are not “official” by its literal meaning. Therefore, we are not working on 07th Expansion/Ryukishi’s behalf.
We indeed received a form of recognition and encouragement, but that doesn’t make this a full fledged translation for them, especially that he certainly never had read our translation to begin with.
We added that matter in the readme. We hope that there won’t be any misunderstanding with this matter in the future.
