Originally, we announced we wouldn’t be able to work on it until June, and most of you all were resigned to wait for a August/September release. Then we announced all of a sudden that we would go ahead with a full patch before the end of June.
Well well… betraying your expectations is what we want, so long it is in the good way of course!
Ladies and Gentlemen, we are set!
Witch Hunt is proud to announce that the new patch for Umineko no Naku Koro ni is available!
The new patch completely covers Episode 4, Alliance of the Golden Witch. You can get it with the following links (mediafire, Rapidshare as a mirror link):
As usual, please do not overwrite the old patch if you were using it. Rather, please delete it and then install the v4.1.
Critical Note: Due to many changes that we had to include in this patch, we were forced to use a clean save state folder. Therefore, none of your old save states will be working starting with v4.1. To make sure things wouldn’t be inconvenient for you all, we prepared a special formula.
First, please download this file (MF / RS) and put it in your patch folder. Then, once in the game, please unlock Episode 4. You should see the change immediately (the background is Beatrice’s portrait). Once you start, you will see a message that will offer you the warp, but this time you will only see the list of the chapters from the first partial patch.
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).
