Violated Hero 3 English v1.01

January 11, 2014

Violated Hero 3 English v1.01

Version 1.01 fixes a bug where the game gets stuck if you cast a mantra in either of the two unwinnable event battles. Those battles skip the usual player attack code and instead just generate damage from 1-10, except the case where you don’t do an attack isn’t handled. That normally wouldn’t be a problem since you’re locked out of most battle options, but you can still use skills, including the mantras. That was really easy to fix once I found the problem. Keeping up with tradition, the English version of the game now has fewer bugs than the original. 😉

The readme still says version 1.0 because I forgot and don’t feel like packing and uploading another patch to fix it.

Violated Hero 3 English Translation Patch Version 1.01
January 12, 2014

Welcome to the English translation patch for Dieselmine’s 3rd Violated Hero game. As always, you play a young hero sent out by himself to save the world from monsters who all happen to be attractive females interested in divesting our hero of his semen. If that sounds horrible to you, I wonder how you ended up reading this in the first place.

Note that this is only a translation patch. You do need a full copy of the Japanese game for it to work.

Acquiring the game:
You can buy the game from DLSite here:
or from the English DLSite here:
If you don’t want to pay, well, you’re on the Internet. Finding it shouldn’t be too hard. If you like the game, I do suggest buying it, however. It’s very likely that this game only exists because of the commercial success of Monster Girl Quest. So if you want more monster girl games, support the people that create them for us.

Files in patch:
1. /English/ – directory of translated content
2. English patch install.bat – batch file for easy installation
3. VH3 English readme.txt – the file you’re reading now
4. kikiriki.exe – Phiber’s Kirikiri tool for extracting and decrypting the game files
5. madCHook.dll – library used by kikiriki for decryption

Easy Installation:
1. Copy all files in the archive into your Violated Hero III directory.
2. Run the English patch install.bat batch file and wait for it to finish. If you’re using a weird operating system, you might not have xcopy and will have to manually copy the files from the English/ directory. You should be fine on XP/Vista/7 though. I don’t know about Windows 8.

Manual Installation:
1. Copy all files in the archive into your Violated Hero directory.
2. Open a command prompt and run “kikiriki.exe -i data.xp3 -o data” This will extract and decrypt the game files. If you have problems with the decryption, try adding “-e VH3_game_executable.exe” to your arguments.
3. Rename or delete data.xp3 to prevent conflicts with the extracted files.
4. Copy everything from the English directory into the data directory, overwriting all files.

Help, it didn’t work!
1. Run the game with your computer in Japanese locale. Also make sure you extracted the game in Japanese locale too. There are lots of tutorials for this on the Internet.
2. Make sure you have a /data folder but no data.xp3 file. Rename or delete data.xp3 if you do, otherwise the game will still be in Japanese.
3. If you’re using applocale or a similar program rather than setting your computer to Japanese locale, make sure the Violated Hero III game directory name doesn’t contain any Japanese characters before you attempt the patch install.
4. Make sure the directory path to the game isn’t excessively long. I don’t know if it’s a problem with Windows or the game engine, but this can cause the game to not execute properly.
5. Make sure you have a full copy of the game and not just the demo. Data.xp3 should be about 2 gigabytes in size.

1Q. Some of the names and such aren’t translated, what’s wrong?
1A. Some details like item and skill names are saved with your save file. You’ll have to start a new game to see the names translated properly. It’s not a big deal at any rate.

2Q. How do you get all the endings?
2A. On your first play, you’re locked into the Empress route. On further plays, you need to deal 300 damage to Fan Mei in 5 turns when you meet at the end of area 5 then continue and win the fight. You’ll then get a choice of routes in area 9.

3Q. My game freezes/crashes when I try to go to area 3, what’s wrong?
3A. The demo only includes the first 2 areas. Get a full copy of the game.

    Sweet hehe. Once again congrats 🙂

    Uhhhh, I filed an infinite loop bug report for RC3 under its respective post a few days ago.

  3. 52ion permalink

    I keep getting an error that says startup.tjs Anyway to fix this?

    • Set your computer’s locale to Japanese or run the game using applocale (or similar program). If you’ve already done that, you probably messed up with the patch somehow and as a result don’t have startup.tjs or other important files in the right places. Startup.tjs should be in the root directory of \data by itself.

      • 52ion permalink

        Looking at the english file, I’m unable to find the file data. Exactly how big is the entire patch supposed to be?

      • The archive is 28,383KB.

      • 42ion permalink

        The anon file is only about 27.7 mb.

      • That’s just due to rounding and 2^10 vs 10^3 kilo notation differences. It’s the same file.

      • 52ion permalink

        Okay, but in the english directory file, is the startup.tjs supposed to be in one of the four folders?

      • No, it’s unmodified from the Japanese version. The patch only includes files I changed.

      • 52ion permalink

        So then the main problem would be in the game itself, rather than the patch?

    2nd page bottom row first scene in replay mode. has anyone unlocked it? cant figure out how to myself

    • thats the spider-crab lady that is in the last map, explore the all the tiles on the map, its easy to skip on the way to the final battle.

      • anonymous permalink

        ah i see the games bugged out on me because i have 100% CG scenes but there is no event for that spidercrab lady so its left me at 96%. guess i gotta do it again

  5. James Turok permalink

    I am having a problem the program will not run,

  6. 3rd page, top-right replay, what is it? It’s set between slime girl, and orichi. help?

    • anonymous permalink

      its a Fan Mei lose scene, get her to kick your arse at the end of area 5 after she gets serious

  7. James Turok permalink

    I think it created a bug that prevents the game from playing. Even when i change the data.xp3 name or deleted, the game does not run. Thoughts?

    • Start over. Try again?

      • James Turok permalink

        No go, joe.

      • James Turok permalink

        I don’t get it, it ran fine last week.

      • James Turok permalink

        I did everything it said, and now it doesn’t work. Something is wrong, even when I deleted the game and reinstall everything. it still doesn’t work.

      • James Turok permalink

        the program will run with the data.xp3 is in the folder, even when I change the title or delete it there is an error.

  8. James Turok permalink

    I keep following the instructions, and I discovered something, when running in the command prompt most of the data in the data folder is corrupted. I only seem to get two bgi images rather then all of them.

    • James Turok permalink

      That’s when it finishes using the command prompt.

  9. James Turok permalink

    Something is wrong with the translation, i have tested the first two violated hero games with he command prompt and they work just fine. Something is wrong with this one. Either it’s the file, translation, or i need to buy it again and preform the translation patch again. The data folder is corrupted when I preform it. i am going to try some tests on other computers to see if it works.

  10. James Turok permalink

    I fixed the problem, I had to re-download everything and start from scratch. Good thing I saved the files from my purchase. Sorry for all the trouble.

  11. Anonymous permalink

    Is there any possibility that you are translating the Compendium? I would really like to know what does the entry of Sei mei/Nurarihyon says, and the one for Daidarabotchi.

  12. Anonymous permalink

    Anyone else get a crash when they try and make it full screen from windowed? The window size it forces is slightly too big for my computer

  13. raze permalink

    hi dargot i have the same error for the 3 VH it’s say he can’t found xcopy when i do the easy installation when i do the kirikiri.exe it’s close instantly any idea how to solve this cause i finished the mgq(1-2-3) and i wanted to play this game and knowthe content of thedialogue thk foryour hardwork and hpe you can help me i have teamviewer if you want to check what is wrong

    • You have to run kikiriki.exe on the command line to pass it arguments. Alternatively, right click kikiriki.exe, create a shortcut, and then modify the shortcut properties to add “-i data.xp3 -o data” to the target.

      Here’s a screenshot:

      Press OK and run the shortcut. After that, rename data.xp3 (or delete it) then copy all files from the English directory into the data directory, overwriting the original data files.

    • On second thought, if your only problem is that you don’t have xcopy, you should only need to copy the English files to the data directory after running the batch file.

    Hi, I also get the startup.tjs error. My game comes with the massive .xp3 file, but not with a /data folder, so I get an error if I try to run it without the .xp3 file on hand.

    • The kikiriki utility that comes with the English patch creates the data folder. Either run the install.bat or do the manual install from the readme.

  15. I’m getting a really weird bug–right after I beat the kitsune, and Nea retreats with her, I skip way ahead in the game, where Ren is apparently aware about the whole yamata no orochi thing. I intentionally lost to Fei Mei the first time in order to unlock the scene, so it’s not that I beat her first try. What’s going on here?

    • Are you running the latest version? That bug should be fixed.

      • hybrinoid permalink

        I think so. I might be wrong, though–I’ll check tonight.

      • Huh, looks like that was the problem. I coulda sworn I had waited until the latest version was out to play it, though…ah well. Thanks for the fantastic translation!

      • Actually, that bug was fixed in RC3 I thought. Either you had a really old version, or I didn’t actually fix it…

        It’s really hard to fix a bug that I’ve never had happen to me and isn’t reproducible.

  16. newbie permalink

    sir dargoth! i got a question. i’m playing Eng version of VH2/VH3 now.
    is there any way to repack data folder to xp3 archive?
    i’ve tried some way(krkrrel.exe, kikiriki.exe -c -i infolder -o out.xp3)but failed at all.
    maybe some enc,dec problem.. oh.. not sure. anyway thx for your patch.

    • Kikiriki will let you repack an xp3 file, but the Violated Hero games won’t be able to read that file because it’s not encrypted.

      • newbie permalink

        wow. i’ve got your reply. really you’re my curiosity savior.
        many thanks.

    Not sure if this is just me or if it’s the way the game is designed, but is it extremely slow in moving from space to space on the maps? It takes 7 seconds for me to move each time I click an arrow before the next arrow/random encounter appears. Is this normal? It really makes gameplay drag so I wasn’t sure if this is an issue with me or just really really really bad game design.

  18. Anonymous permalink

    How do I access the alternate endings, exactly? I’m on NG+ super powered up, did heavy damage to Fan Mei in area 5 so she powered up mid-fight, reached area 9 and beat the ice witch but didn’t see any choices, so carried on + reached area 10 and beat the empress both with and without using sei mei’s spell. Fully explored every area too. What’s gone wrong?

    • Anonymous permalink

      Never mind, worked it out. It’s a little while since I played through for the first time and I didn’t remember that there had already been the option “Look around for help”, I assumed that was the Sei Mei path and “Fight with all you have” was the Fan Mei… God damn it.

  19. Anonymous permalink

    I’ve used the install batch but the game titles are all still in japanese. I am running in japanese locale. Any idea what I’m doing wrong?

  20. Anonymous permalink

    I just changed to simpler directory its fixed now.

  21. StriderAnarchy99 permalink

    Okay, I keep having a problem where the 5th area’s gate doesn’t go down. Anyone know what I should do?

    • Anonymous permalink

      Did you figure out how to get past this? I’m also having the same problem, would appreciate a save file after this part.

  22. Anonymous permalink

    I can not understand how to open all endings. That it is necessary to make to open them.

  23. Anyone know how to get past the boss door in area 5 of the jungle? I can’t past that door no matter what i do :((

      Did you figure out how to get past this? I’m also having the same problem, would appreciate a save file after this part.

  24. Fabby permalink

    is there anyway someone could make a video guide for me? It’s the first time I’ve tried anything like this and nothing is really working i would really appreciate it. When i get to starting the game i get this error. Here is a screenshot.

    maybe someone could get me a step by step screenshot guide, if anyone has the time once again, i would really appreciate it. thanks.

  25. I love this game, thanks for the translation! ❤

  26. Chuck Norris permalink

    I’m also having a problem of Startup.tjs i read the comments did everything but still nothing helps
    So can i just get your copy of System folder from the data folder because i’m pretty sure it would fix everything. Thanks and i’m hoping for your quick and favorable reply 🙂

    • I think all these old MEGA links expired or something. The files are still there, just the links are dead. I’ve updated this one and Desire Dungeon already, and I’ll go check the others.

    Hey Dargoth, I have a bug after I start new game+ with the better start stats….. Every time after I beat the kraken and slime girl in Area 5, I can´t get trough the sealed way…. I tried literally doing anything I could do 100% up to that point, but it still wouldnt let me trough. I tried starting another NG+, didn´t work.
