Oh look 1.20 actually came out

July 11, 2015

It’s real! Busy converting all the ancient 1.03 translation files that I’ve been using as a baseline over to 1.20. Got lots of items and random stuff in 1.10 format that I’m really hoping Fanservicefan can help convert himself…

At any rate, I’m alive. Bad weekend for both me and MGL, but oh well. At least we have the damn patch now.

Updated translation patch this weekend. I promise.

  1. After seeing Chrome in the haunted mansion, and having her run away, where the hell does she go? when i talk to Amria, she says the quest still isnt done, so she has to be somewhere

    • Chiron Maximus permalink

      have you played the first MGQ? If so, remember the story when you fight Chrome. If you haven’t, Check EVERY part of the Mansion.

    • Mawey permalink

      have you searched through the whole mansion? looked at every suspicios thing?

    • She goes just outside the room you met her in, after you talk to her there she falls down through a hole and ends up in the basement that is accessible via the entrance on the main floor that was blocked by a bookcase before. So basically from where you enter the mansion you just go north a bit then you should be in a place where there’s a few prisoners and at the very bottom you will find a long hallway with pillars on each side, Federika and Chrome should be there and will initiate a boss fight after you talk to either of them I think, or just Chrome, I’m not sure.

    • Fozze, if you’re taking about the first time she’s running away then she slips through a secret passage on the right wall of the room about the middle where two parts of the wall seem to be connected. There at the part ever the new wall begins, there is a secret passage which Leeds to another room.
      After that a scene will trigger and chrome will be carried outside and hides in the hallway between a box and a shelf I think. Hope that helps you and other readers here.

      • Don’t mind the strange typos/words that make no sense at all in my previous post, I love my Autocorrect on the phone… Always thinks that it’s more intelligent than I am.

      Those aren’t even monstergirls, all human legs and arms…

    • Anonymous permalink

      I agree with anon. Girls with wings or tails and animal ears shouldn’t jump directly into the definition of monster girls. They are only half way through.
      BTW I’m wondering if tomorrow is the day we finally get the dam english patch. It’s taking too long now considering they are simply getting the translations together and placing it corretly in the newest version. I’m expecting it to be released this weekend at last. Hopefully tomorrow.

      • Anonymous permalink

        Sunday is the earliest I would expect, but honestly I wouldn’t be surprised if it isn’t done until next weekend. But maybe I have low expectations.

      • CivilDeviation permalink

        Not sure what we’d call these pseudo-MGs, but I agree it is frustrating running into this stuff when looking for non-humanoid artistry.

        If there is an update come Sunday I will be elated, if not, drat. Sadly, the latter means indignant boys from Generation Gimmie-Now will be coming out from under their bridges. Anyone have robo-exploding goats?

      • It’s more like kemonomimi

    How do you get into New Game+? I’m not seeing the option in the menu.

    On another note, anyone one know how to get how to get into contact with toro toro? I want to ask *read: beg* him to make succubus witch a companion, and give queen of grand noah sex scenes, and a request option for the Battle fuckers wouldn’t be too bad either.

    Then again these things will probably be added with part 2, so it might be pointless to ask.

    • Anonymous permalink

      I believe New Game+ is a mod. Or if you’re talking about the mod, I dunno cuz I don’t have the mod.

      And I’d be incredibly surprised if Succubus Witch didn’t show up in part 2 or 3 somewhere. Pretty sure she’s one of the more popular monsters.

    • Have a chat with Death at the end of the game

      • DungeonMasterBobbySmith permalink

        Anybody have a fix for the original MGQ for the “Ika Musume” extra. My game always crashes during it.

      • NightmareChild permalink

        Ah, thanks mgq_ex. After getting my ass handed to me by alice I kinda stayed away from death.

      • JohnTitor permalink

        @DungeonMasterBobbySmith

        I had some problems with certain lines in some mods, fixed them by adding or removing spaces and capitals in the lines that caused the error.

        Go into your mod folder and find the Ika Musume exta, open the story file and replace all of the text with the text here http://puu.sh/jdegb/f303e27eb7.ini

        If that doesn’t work, experiment with it a little. Search for the lines that caused the crash and edit them a bit.

        Where is Death?

      • NightmareChild permalink

        Illias Temple second floor. After the Third Tartarus hole you can use NG+, When talking to death it should be the second or third option and she’ll ask you twice if you’re sure you want to restart. In NG+ you keep everyone you’ve recruited (along with their levels, jobs, stats, and items), but the shops in the monster lords castle seem to be reset.

    • Anonymous permalink

      I presume you are talking about the new game+ for the original MGQ game. This link will give you some info: http://monstergirlquest.wikia.com/wiki/Monster_Girl_Quest:_NG%2B
      There are 2 new game+ mods. The one made by SpasMaran is a dropped project, cool; short and incomplete.
      The other one is a work in progress although the team is slow as hell. Its better overall especially the begining (part1), it almost feels like the characters retained their personality almost perfectly. But then as the story goes on, it feels like they switched the writer or he went full retard because all of the characters became much dumber, they use childish speeches and they don’t stick to their old personality anymore. But hey it’s a work in progress! Here’s the link for their website: http://mgqng.blogspot.com/
      If you loved clearing the game then you probably should try those mods out.

      The mod is pretty good and entertaining, but yeah I felt that their personalities made a flip somewhere. Specially Luka, who becomes too full of himself for my taste, when Alice says or does something to him he almost always answers along the lines of: “I could kick your ass if I wanted to so shut up”.

    • NightmareChild permalink

      I talking about the ng+ within Paradox. Ex already told me how to do it. But thanks to your comments I checked the blogspot, and apparently they had updated, so now I get more monster girls to play with.

      • Anonymous permalink

        Who would make a ng+ mod for a game thats probably not even half way through to be completed?

      • JohnTitor permalink

        Toro did as part of the 1.10 update, not a mod.

        After beating the chapter you can start over and keep your levels, equipment, companions with the exception of Alice and Illias which you’ll have to choose between again.

    there’s a bug when using the EX patch, when u hide a skill using the SHIFT button in the skill menu but u can still see/use them in battle…

    • Or maybe you fooled around in the options menu and set it to show all skills.

    • Anonymous, you mean like if I would seal ‘White Magic’ then it would be displayed in battle? That function seems to work.

      Go To
      Menu > Config > Display Skill Types
      Show All – Will disable the seal function
      Hide – Will enable the seal function

      Hope that helps

    When i try to start the game with the EX patch i get an error saying that graphics/casino/pokertrump is missing, can anyone help?

    • Using the 1.20 version? If not update to 1.20. If that’s not the problem MGQ_EX is the only one that can help.

    • Thats an old file present even in the demo so probably something went wrong when decrypting Game.rgss3a. Did you put all the decrypted files back in the main game directory? Graphics Folder should be around 1.28 GB for Paradox 1.20

      • Anonymous permalink

        Fixed it, turns out i was just doing the decryption process wrong and wasnt adding in the
        decrypted files, thanks for the help.

    I can’t find the skill for milking, after using EX patch,it used be there… am i mistaking it for something?

    • Gadgetfeak permalink

      one of my imp character had it

    • Its translation might need work but it should be
      Skill – 1439
      Milking Demon Palm

      Description
      Target:Foe Effect: Milk Acquisition
      Sweet Tesabaki, procedures that squeeze the Milk of opponent

      Message1
      squeezes the enemy’s breasts and milks them!

    • You’re probably looking for demon milking palm which is an unarmed skill and is learned by succubus monk race I think

    • Desert Eagle permalink

      Dolls (automatons) learn a milking skill.

  8. MGQ_EX here is the latest database file I’m not sure if I used the latest version of the EX patch and I hope that’s not a problem for you
    Things that have been changed:
    -Almost all weapons and armors revised and given proper descriptions the ones that sound nonsensical I had no idea for their description
    -Some key items revised
    -Accessories descriptions. I’m not sure how many, up to Race Killer book or scroll
    I had to stop because I felt like the accessories aren’t going to end and I have some family obligations to attend to soon.
    I said I hope it’s not a problem with me updating because I saw the skills have all the wrong icons in the menu and items have no icons at all. Some of the text at the bottom overlaps(button description) and I’m not sure if those things are contained in the database file and you fixed them and now I’m giving you the descriptions in a file that’s outdated. Also I would like to ask for a recommendation for a translation site that’s a tad more accurate than google translate if you happen to know any.

    • Thanks Casian Sarpe Socaci and have fun with your family; Paradox is a long way coming and there isn’t any good reason not to enjoy life

      As for translating I found a few things besides google translate but its a mixed bag…

      http://mymemory.translated.net/en/Japanese/English/
      This seems to be a coin toss but sometimes its more produces better results, it will either be in line with similar translators or it will do its own thing; Most though seem follow suit with Google

      http://www.tanoshiijapanese.com/dictionary/
      Not really good for sentences but if one particular word stands out it might help and it sometimes even goes into multiple meanings
      IE:
      Tesabaki = Handling

      http://thejadednetwork.com/sfx/search/
      If a word looks doubled it might be a sound effect
      IE:
      びゅーびゅー
      Byubyu
      *swisshh*

      And though if someone fluent in the language could glace over this would be extremely helpful my compiled list of things I came across (The deeper down the rabbit hole the more I add to it…)

        hey MGQ_EX, I know this is unrelated to MGQ. However I am currently using a machine translator on this other game, PENIBAN QUEST: Sacrifice to Domina. Would you please give me a list of names translated from it so I can insert them into my translator. My translator seems not to recognize them.

      • NoName permalink

        ルクスル
        Look Through

        Err… it’s a name, why did you write something that is clearly not a name LOL? Luxur/Luxuru seems the closest one to sounding like a name.

        バニィちゃん
        Banyi Chan

        Should be Buny/Bunny-chan. I mean, it’s the girl with the bunny cosplay. Though I suppose it may conflict with the other bunny girls if they have similar names, in that case guess it’s fine this way.

        While the second is up to you, the first one is obviously wrong and should be changed.

      • Thanks NoName

        Lets see, “Look Through” I think came for Dargoth’s patch.
        Luxur
        Luxuru
        Rukusuru
        I wonder which has a nicer ring? Do those that love her have any opinion on this?

        Now “Banyi Chan” was a direct google translation of 1.10. I can see about changing it to
        Buny
        Bunny-chan
        Both sound better its just whether to keep the ‘chan’…

      • ルクス ル
        Lux Le
        LUX Le Morne seems to be a fancy place
        Luxle?
        Almost sounds like a play on Luxury…

      • If there are no objections here is what I’ll revise to:

        Look Through (ルクスル) To Luxurie
        A Mix of NoName’s recommendation of Luxur and a play on Luxury as it sounds better to the ear… At least mine.

        Banyi Chan (バニィちゃん) To Bunnie
        Bunny-chan shows up every now and again in translation though it doesn’t use the same wording as Banyi Chan so I’m guessing its just fellow Bunny Girls and changing her to that would keep her unique.

        Thanks once again NoName for taking time to look these over

      • Desert Eagle permalink

        I think Luxur sounds better. It’s simply closer to the original name. It’s also possible that “Luxur” is something that’s been taken from a longer word and made into a name. Some names in MGQ:P are like that.

        Umm, how much of this word list can I look through and comment on? I’ve read it a bit and I’ve already written quite a lot of stuff. Opinions, reasonings, that sort of stuff. I think it might seriously spam this thread though.

        To begin with, I think you misspelled 「ラゴラ」. It’s put as “Radora” but the letter 「ゴ」 is “go”, not “do”.

      • Just remembered Bunnie is to similar with Bunny Slime… hmm, though she is in a bunny costume she is still in costume…

        Banyi Chan
        バニィちゃん

        バニースーツ
        Bunny Suit

        バニーちゃん
        Bunny Chan

        バニースライム
        Bunny Slime

        うさ
        Bunni

        バニー
        Bunny

      • Desert Eagle, if you got comments on it I would love to hear them. Fanservicefan started posting list on pastebin.com and I followed suit. I do update the main list when I find new words and such but its usually stable and I rarely change definitions unless I figure it was wrong.

        Luxur rang to much like Lex Luthor, would be nice to know what her name originated from or how Dargoth got Look Through.. My play on it was luxury onahole… yep they sell those

        Lets see Actor 59 ラゴラ Radora also comes from Dargoth’s patch
        Ragora sounds good and reflects with the wiki
        http://monstergirlquest.wikia.com/wiki/Mandragora

        Also going through some things
        Haut-Rhin (オーラン) Probably should be Orlan

      • Desert Eagle permalink

        Yeah but like you said, not all of these name suggestions are yours. A lot of them are from Dargoth’s patch. Maybe I should wait for patch 1.20 before making a huge list of suggestions?

      • Perhaps, then again given the size of the Paradox it might be one of those typos that just got missed (many people underestimate the amount of overall text in the game). In Dargoth’s repository it looks like the names from 1.02 haven’t been changed (though the entries from 1.10 have been entered they aren’t translated yet). Desert Eagle it might be a good idea to just look over the actor names (a much smaller list as that reference list I have just throws everything and anything I find in I also use it as a filter to help clean up the dialogue) Saying it came from Dargoth’s patch isn’t bad though if enough entries are found it might be nice to shoot him an email (given the size of the forms that would be more convenient to have one big list of typos instead of a hundred individual suggestions scattered about)

        As for the EX though I’m taking notes on what you and NoName mentioned. It will take a little more effort to change actor names (rpg maker likes to put copies in the saves) but I already got a rough concept on how I’ll do it just by adding a sparkly book in the pocket castle that calls a mass rename script then people can use it and save (should also fix another bug associated with EX).

        Actor 59 is just a typo
        Actor 94 has a few variants however one thing we can all agree on is shouldn’t be Look Through
        What should Actor 94 (ルクスル) be named?

        Actor 548 seems to be deliberate to sound like bunny but slued, though the current came from Google Translate
        Actor 562 was one of the BF girls from 1.10 that was also Google Translate

  9. How does one open the magically sealed blue chest for Chrome’s item? I read that someone somehow triggered a talk scene between Luka and Alice and was then able to enter the tower. No matter what I try I can’t seem to trigger this. I’m using Ilias, is something different for her?

    • Anonymous permalink

      Hi, I was one of the anons talking about it earlier. I also had Illias with me. After completing the mansion questline and beating Chrome, did you talk to Chrome in the basement? I’m fairly certain Chiron said, that the chest opened after returning to chrome, talking to her, and then going back to the chest. The magically sealed chest opened for me when I first clicked on it but I exhaust everyone’s dialogue so I didn’t even know there was a problem until people started mentioning it here. However no dialogued triggered for me, Illias and Sonya until I was leaving the cave which was strange.

    • Anonymous permalink

      Oops, just re-read your post after my reply. You cannot enter the Tower in part 1. I believe one the guides mentioned you can trigger some dialogue at the tower but not actually enter it. I’m assuming you’ve already found the blue chest but, just in case, the blue chest is the tunnel between abandoned village and the Doll Tower, at the bottom level, next to the green and steel chest.

      • Yea, I found the chest, but I can’t open it. I’ve been back to chrome multiple times to see if it triggers. If nothing else works I’ll just try again in NG+. At least I’ll have something to do then 😛

    • Hey Viktor, you have to visit the village where every one disappeared first (the one left to cave where the blue and green chest is) and talk to one of the guys first (don’t know which one, I suppose you talk to everybody there) then the tower event will trigger and you’ll see some nice foreshadowing and the puppet master will tell you to go down the cave (you might have to go and talk to chrome first so that she will tell you to get her the madou book).
      Auer the tower event an event in the cave will trigger where either Ilias or Alice will tell you to go to the bottom.

      • NoName permalink

        Visiting that tower has nothing to do with exploring the empty village. You need to head to the cave before the tower AFTER beating Chrome. Else, you will completely miss the scene the moment you enter the cave before the tower.

  10. Did someone already Beat Sonya Maju at Chaos Labyrinth lv 100 or whatever she’s called?
    I tried to use the combo with Pihar and Sylph, fairies and Reina, which I used to beat Death, but first Problem with Sonya is that she’s freakin fast, so that I even don’t have time to cast that Harpie dance with Pihar (even faster than Death with freakin 700+ Agility).
    When I’m lucky and Pihar is able to dodge that 6000+ aoe, then I’m confronted with the second problem. Even with 100% physical and magic dodge rate from Harpie dance plus base 50~60% dodge rate my whole party still gets hit from every attack…
    Seems like TTR built in some kind of attack Type that is neither physical nor magic…
    The party survives 1 time because of endure and goddess revival, but then gets wiped out pretty quick.
    Also all characters of mine only hit for 700 damage. XD
    Also thus pretty much prices that Sonya is Adramelech or at least will transform into something evil.
    So does someone have a strategy to beat her or have shady beaten her?

    • Anonymous permalink

      Taken from Rpg Maker she got 978 Agility + some Parameter for +100%Hitrate some 50% debuffs for pretty much anything.
      7 out of 12 skills are a guaranteed hit

      • Oh Boy,
        So no chance to beat her with those guaranteed hits? :/
        You could grind for those seeds and nuts for stat boost, but that shouldn’t really be the solution right? XD

      • Anonymous permalink

        sounds like shes mgq’s version of penance from ff10

    • *this pretty much proves
      *or have already beaten her
      Damn Autocorrect… XD

      • Anonymous permalink

        Maybe with a high enough defence and agility to survive a hit ist doable.
        Just heal everyone to full life and hit her bit by bit.(She just got 200000HP)
        (This is considering you actually can survive one hit, haven’t tried the labyrinth yet)
        oh and just so you know there are harder bosses.

      • There are even harder bosses? Like which one? The hardest was Death (haven’t tried to beat her on Paradox Mode, though) in my opinion, at least before that Sonya. Where can I encounter them? 😀

    • Rawr permalink

      I’ve only been playing on 1.10 so I don’t know if some of this stuff has changed, but you could try one of the insect girls with access to the Subterranean Insect race. They get some crazy DEF & WILL bonus, like 450% or something, and also learn Absolute Defense which changes the modifier when you use the defense option to 5%. Their stat % also applies to seeds so each seed should give several points of defense/willpower. And for damage you could try the Oni girl from the cave with the lizards. Buffed and Einherjar’d I had her alone doing upwards of 50-75k damage a turn against Death. The attack bonus from the auto berserk accessory with 1.5x attack stacks with her berserk passive.

  11. When Dargoth releases the patch, I’ll be all like…

  12. sazaju permalink

    I tried the EX translation, but there is just no way for me to play with a Google trad… I understand better the japanese. I’m sure it can help others, but for me it’s hopeless, it just cannot enjoy the game with such a bad english. Just waiting for Dargoth’s translation. It is just a pity there is not easy way to contribute, like on Assembla, so one could just provide some pieces (s)he translated and let the main people check and integrate.

    • sazaju permalink

      I should just stop saying just that I just this or just that. Just too “just”.

    • As far as I can see it EX isn’t meant for the story, it’s just for the gameplay. Everything I edited was item, skill or equip related if you want to enjoy the story be patient and wait for Dargoth to finish. Even if it is bad English work was put into it as well. So if you’re not content with the EX patch and know Jap better stick to Jap version, no one’s forcing it down your throat.
      You’re not even giving constructive criticism you’re just whining.

      • Because yours is more constructive? It does not even consider that I said “for me” and that “it can help others”. Could be I am not the one who is just “whining” {^_^}. Don’t expect people to say only that it is sooooo great. Criticism is good too, then feel free to consider it or not.

      • I apologize if that came out too strongly it was 4 in the morning and I do lose my temper from time to time. I come here all the time and I’m kind of tired of people expecting EX to be something close to what Dargoth will release at some point. The only reason these kind of comments bother me is because what I took care of I didn’t just rearrange jumbled words to make decent descriptions out of what google translate barfed out, I actually researched the weapons and armor names I edited, looked them up and such and that takes time. I do not expect anyone to say it’s great because I know it’s not, but people probably make such comments because they only look at the dialogue and not the misc things in the game.
        Again I apologize for my outburst that wasn’t appropriate of me, after all everyone has the right to an opinion.

      • I also noticed and really appreciated to see Vanilla with all her merchant items translated, and it was a big good point for me, because the descriptions here are for many extremely similar, so hard to make any difference between each item. But at some point, items and techniques are used several times, so you can try and learn the interesting ones and remember their effect, which is not the case for dialogues which come once for all.

        In the future, I recommend you to simply ignore the (parts of) comments which seem to step on your work. If they do, they do not deserve to be considered, if they do not, then you need to take a good sleep before to come back. Feel proud of your work independently of the comments: unpaid works are proofs of the purest interests, which make them among the most valuable activities.

        Well, this is my opinion. {^_°}

    • Criticism is good, EX is a relatively open project. It stands for Experimental after all… Those rvtext files are just plain text files you can open in notepad++ or something similar.
      Cleaning up the Database makes skills and menu items better.
      Cleaning up the ScriptText makes special dialogue and menus better.
      Cleaning up the Dialogues make the overall game better.

      Sadly that order is also there respective size of content…

      There are a few menu items that are hard coded but I try to keep the important stuff open.

      I haven’t set up anything like Assembla though I do have some update code if you only sent the piece you worked on it could be integrated. If enough people not helping Dargoth wanted to help out it might be useful… Perhaps I’ll look into it 🙂

      • Maybe I could make a git repository, so any one could participate. Not sure if people are fine with using git, though.

        I could also make an editor to simplify the modification process. I did it for another translation project on Assembla, but the files are completely different here, so I would need to make a completely new one. I am a programer, so this kind of thing is also interesting for me, don’t know if people would be interested, though.

      • One thing to note about programming is the Language File System, one of the core scripts EX uses, original developer is working on a rewrite of the system and when it releases I’ll have to consider whether to update in kind.

        At the moment rvtext files are a simple 2 dimensional array [entry key, content] and over time I wrote ruby code to sort the data, update it, and for the dialogue file split it into individual maps, common events, and troop events. This unfortunately uses the RPG Maker engine as I was lazy and didn’t take the time to figure how to take that code and make a pretty interface in I think Glade is the Ruby GUI… Its been awhile.

        For dialogue its especially useful to split that data up given its size.

        Dargoth uses Atlassian Source Tree software and bitbucket.org for his repository though a more open repository sounds more fitting for EX. He uses Ytinasni RpgMaker Translator which fully decompiles the project and when completed recompiles it where the Language File System alters key components of the project then overlays the rvtext data on top of it.

        Hope this bit of information as interesting sazaju 🙂

    can someone tell me how the race exp works?

    • Anonymous permalink

      When you win a battle and you see that you’ve gained some amount of Job exp, that same amount is also given to Race. Accessories or abilities that specifically affect job exp won’t affect race exp.

    Announcement from dargoth -> New patch soon(ish)
    Two weeks later -> Not even an estimated date or info how it’s going
    Comments -> ~90% from guys playing the machine translated version anyway

    • I wonder if the translation was progressing all those months and we are just waiting for the the way to patch it on 1.20 or that any translation was halted months ago and it is only now restarting.

    • Scarlethill permalink

      Why the hell would they want machine translations? they suck ass…. I for one need a REAL translation so go Dargoth!!!

    • Anonymous permalink

      I’m not sure whether this lag means that they translated a lot that needs to be converted for the patch or that translation was and is going very slowly. Fingers crossed for the former….

    Dargoth pls

    I still don’t understand how can people satisfy themselves with machine translation. I play games to enjoy it fully, not partially. It’s like playing SRW games, yes I can play through it while finding some summary and menu translations online, but it feels like I’m playing it halfway and leaving it. It feels like I half-assed the game, missing important conversations along the way that makes me like the characters. In this game, everything is important. From story to NPC interactions to item descriptions.

    • It is easy to understand if you consider that your very last sentences “In this game, everything is important. From story to NPC interactions to item descriptions.” does not have to be true for everyone. For some people, the point is only to go to the fight, or go the the H scenes, or whatever, so all what is around that is not really interesting and just reduces your playing time. Like on some ero-games I just keep the CTRL key pressed to pass the dialogs and go to the meat. If you did that for some games, then you should start to understand that other people, who don’t have the same opinion about what is important, should do the same for this game, and only focus on what allows them to play their own important parts (e.g. understand the interface to fight properly).

      I also want to understand every tiny details of this story, which I find to be really rich and interesting. I am also a translator (not official though) and a perfectionnist. And all in all, this is why I cannot be satisfied by such an approximate translation and why it actually decreases my enjoyment. Surely I am not the only one, but as surely this is not the case of an overwhelming majority neither.

    • The same reason people play early releases and betas… The joy of playing something with the expectation of replaying it again. Insight, exploration, etc, as those that wanted to wait the full year for this game to be completed and then months later for the complete translation probably wouldn’t be on the forms when only part 1 is out and still being developed.

    • Anonymous permalink

      I agree, I’m also waiting for Dargoth translation to proceed with the storyline but every once in a while I play the game just to farm a bit of XP and gold and a machine translation is quite helpful for that. Some of the menu options and almost all of the items are not translated so it gives me a good idea of what is being displayed.
      Dargoth should at the very least come here every few days and tell us how’s the translation going. Doesn’t take more than 5min.
      I really don’t understand what’s taking so long since the translations were ready and we were just waiting for 1.2 to come out. Of couse he can’t simply copy paste it because there certainly are some changes but not something that would take even 2 days to work around it let alone 2 weeks. This is just a guess but I think Dargoth is probably adding some of the EX translation he had not translated yet and making it better and that’s what is taking him so long.

      • Shellfishgirl Victim permalink

        I’m confident about seeing Dargoth coming out of nowhere and say “Surprise first patch released with almost 50% of the storyline and uch stuff of the previous one !”

        One day, maybe next week or somethin, at last he didnt forget us Monster girl fanatics ^^

      • Anonymous permalink

        @Shellfishgirl Victim
        I wouldn’t be surprised at all if he did that although that’s exactly what I really hope he doesn’t do. I would rather have 2 patches within 1 week than having to wait yet another week for a single bigger patch.
        Pretty sure everyone else feels the same.

      RPG with engrish Worth nothing. Machine translation is only Worth about action games or non-text based games. In RPG to appreciate you needs an accurate or well inspired translation (suc as rogue did with MG serie)

      • JohnTitor permalink

        A machine translation is worth more than no translation.

      • @JohnTitor
        It depends on the people. I won’t make a game theory thread, but if it is commonly agreed that everyone follow some sort of utility optimization, it is well known that no utility function is common to everyone, and thinking so would be a big mistake.

      • Desert Eagle permalink

        I know a little japanese myself so I use the substitution plugin of Translator Aggregator to inject my own translations in the machine translation. Thanks to that, it can now create much more fluent text than without.

  17. Is beating Nanabi and the other monsters like her even possible at this point? Or is that a “go back in part 2” thing?

    • If you do it in the Labyrinth I think you get a prize… still working on those parts though

    • If you speak about beating her during the story, yes it is feasible. I already have her in my castle. You should exp a bit though and find some good strategies to maintain your party alive. I think you can find here and there some strategies, I already saw some of them for other powerful monmusu discussed in older comments.

    • Mawey permalink

      yes it is possible to beat nanabi and with the harpys it is possible to beat sphinx and the shinigami too

    • Skuya permalink

      The fights vs. Sphinx, Alice and especially Nanabi are possible as well without the harpies and such (at least on Normal and Hard). I used a team of Luka (which buffed himself and attacked), Ilias (quite nice due to “Guard All”, but not really necessary though), a Time Mage (in my case Shestra, the Tartarus I Insect Girl) and someone who really can dish out damage (like a Battle-Master, I used Regina for this)

      Buff Regina & Luka every two turns to the limit and the battle is not that difficult. Reginas Double-Edged hit for about 14k dmg. Apply Time Stop when necessary, though it requires a bit of luck.

    MGQ_Ex, what program did you use to extract the RPG Maker text files? Between Dargoth and yourself I’m inspired to start doing basic translating for Succubus Quest as I play through it.

    • DerTraveler Language File System 1.3 (I edited Paradox version of this a lot…) And RPG Maker VX Ace editor
      http://forums.rpgmakerweb.com/index.php?/topic/17964-language-file-system/

      This might not be the best system as there are a few out there that will do similar things.
      This slows things down a little by externalizing all the dialogue (or at least the better part) then notepad++ to read the rvtext files that it generates.
      The plus is you don’t have to rebuild the project to make simple changes.

      Dargoth uses Ytinasni RpgMaker Translator 0.9f (unless he got an update I’m not aware of)

      This will fully decompile the project and make it easy to read (even without RPG Maker VX Ace editor) however it has to be recompiled before you can see what changes are effected, overall more robust but minor changes become a pain. It also has a patch tool but given 1.02a release its not stable and manually creating a patch from the generated project is better.

      Extra tools that are used include RPG Maker Decrypter, Notepad++, WinMerge, WinRar, and lots of hours trying to make sense of puked up google translated Japanese…

      Perhaps I’ll looking into Succubus Quest later, though the vast amount of my time is still in Paradox.

      • Anonymous permalink

        Thank you for going into such great detail. I’ve been trying out RPG Trans at http://rpgmakertrans.bitbucket.org/ It’s useful except for the bug that doesn’t pick up on the first line of dialogue in some XP games, which is an obvious deal breaker until they fix it.

        While I can’t speak Japanese, adding multiple machine translations together gives a decent picture of what they’re trying to say; it’s certainly a lot more clear than I expected once you have 4 translations going at once. I’ve taken the liberty of interpreting the intro and the first town in Succubus Quest into English, though any cultural references are going to be lost in translation.

        I really appreciate the detailed list of useful programs you’ve provided. Playing around with these, I can see how much work goes into this – not to mention the critical contextual thinking involved in translation. So thank you very much.

        With any luck I’ll be joining you in translating these great games. It’s nice to have a side project to work on. Thanks again to both of you for the inspiration.

    Do we know what Dargoth’s next patch will contain (roughly)?
    Specifically, is he going for a full translation, or incremental partial patches?

    • Anonymous permalink

      It’s not the wait, but the lack of communication from Darg is killing me.

      • Same thing for me. The lack of update, even to tell that he has no time to currently work on it, makes I wonder what is hapenning.

      • CwHart permalink

        If I was Darg I prolly wouldn’t update as often as people wanted cause I’d be too focused on other things, ya know like life.

      • Around one update per week seems to me to be reasonnable. Especially if it is to say two lines like:

        “I completely forgot to work on it this week! Just too busy. Hope I will find some time soon.”

        or:

        “I made a few lines, but I feel that I am on a flat period now. I will make a small break and go back to it in two weeks (hopefully).”

        or, if we are lucky enough:

        “Oh gosh, I made a lot this week, although it still remains so much… I made like 2% more, but it was a hard 2%, I had to search a lot how to rephrase it. It is easier in general.”

        I am not saying that he should stick to some one-per-week rule and vow abstinence during one year more each time he misses some deadline, but I would appreciate (he does what he wants, I am only giving my opinion) to not wait two months before to hear something about the advancement.

      • I think thats a bit strange he was very detailed before Paradox

  20. Is the tentacle hand the best sex toy? Got it quite some time ago, but I haven’t found anything better so far

    • Chiron Maximus permalink

      You know about that library section that almost nobody talks about?

    • There are actually 4 sex toys that are better than the succubus hand. Feather Hand, Angel Breast, Tentacle Hand and Creature Hall(I think it’s supposed to be hole) in that order. If you finished the game already and you have none of those 4 it means you either don’t visit the blacksmiths to synth items, don’t buy weapons or don’t search dungeons thoroughly.

      • Yeah Creature Hole looks correct… Thanks for finding that Casian Sarpe Socaci

      • Well that was just a guess. I didn’t take the liberty of changing weapon armor or accessories’ names unless I was 100% sure. Again I must ask is the jumbling of icons for everything a side-effect of the EX or did I do something to screw them up?

      • Thats why I did a little research, seems to be the most accurate given context.
        Jumbling icons? All the ones you did for [Mag Rock] look correct, there is a difference in Power from a letter (Paradox translated) and a percentage (Dargoth Specialty)

      • Let me give you a visual example. Or more than just one. What I’m talking about is that in my copy of the game all the skills, weapons key items have the wrong icons when you look at them in the menu. Consumables and collectible items( e.g. Milk) have no icons next to them at all along with armors and accessories. Even the ones in the achievements section don’t look right. They’re replaced by other probably default-looking icons instead of the bronze gold and silver stars.

        The images I put up need to be approved by dargoth since they’re just links but I’m sure you get the general idea of what’s happening. The ones I put with the Mag Rock items couldn’t have been wrong since I used the weaker rocks’ descriptions as a template icons included. If you didn’t know about this it means something went wrong on my side and I’ll get a clean copy of paradox and re-patch it see if that fixes it.

      • Hmm, Looks fine to me

        Yeah I shouldn’t use the debugger to gift myself milk… In the background is what I’m working on, when it is done I’ll release an update

      • like I said something got screwed up on my side not sure what I did, but I re-patched on a clean version and it seems to be working just fine. I have a selfish request for the next update, could you run the milk getting messages through google translate or at least the one you get when you fail to acquire it. I’ll see what I can do within the hour and maybe finish with the accessories before I go to bed maybe I’ll have an update for you before I go to work tomorrow that you can include in your next release (goddamn scrolls).

        I’m still cleaning things up but here is the current work in progress.

      • Eh I’m not sure how long this is gonna take, google screwed up and I thought there were double entries, good thing there’s a 15% and 30% boost accessory or it would make no sense.
        The katana was translated a sword and when I first saw it I was like “Wtf is this?”
        Also there were the gloves are there already Thief Gloves in the file because I couldn’t find them so I named the Trowel Thief as Thief Gloves.
        I consider myself very proficient in English but only as a foreign language since it’s not my primary language. I looked up what trowel really is and I honestly burst in laughs thinking how someone could use it to mug somebody else.

      • Casian Sarpe Socaci, I ended up sidetracked and didn’t get much done… Added to many icons to the database… I started originally to finding how many unicode dots ‘・’ were messed up to that conversion error then I seen some minor things wrong, then not so minor, and down hill. Glance over it and see if it looks better or worse; Added a test save in slot 6 (should have every item, oh and there is one addition that won’t work outside of EX) and an Icon list.

      • DUDE! Is the thing near Luka from the save actually in the game? Even if it isn’t and if you made it good job. How did you sneak in the song that plays when you use it? You’re a traitor for choosing Ilias over Alice >_>.
        On topic, I’m sure it took a lot of work to get those icons in the descriptions and I know how much hard work it is but in my honest opinion I think status aliments should remain words instead of symbols. I honestly feel more comfortable reading what can happen instead of being shown a picture. Or let me put it in another way there’s 25 possible status effects including the death-type ones. I’m pretty sure no one will memorize every one of them and will only get confused when reading descriptions. I personally admire what you put yourself through to get those icons in the descriptions and testing what each looks like what but I think wordly description of the status are more straightforward. It doesn’t look bad, it just looks confusing.
        That’s my opinion if you decide to stick with it or not I’ll keep helping regardless. I’ll look over your Ninjutsu list a bit later and see if I can make out anything and also try to finish with the demon arts and what’s after. I really hope the database file didn’t give you the trouble it gave me so to avoid future problems I’m going to have to ask you to suggest a text editing program. I used MS-Word at first and I got fed up with how much it took to copy text over selected text(replacing basically) then I used WordPad, most of the things I did in the last file were done with it because I noticed it was a lot faster and there was a lot of select text/paste over it to do. So if you think you know something like a combination of these 2 that would be nice. Again emphasis on speed.

      • Casian Sarpe Socaci that item is technically in every rpg maker game, though Paradox should have its own flavor with Garuda Girl “Galda” probably much later, oh and a small warning that some references to maps exist that aren’t included in Paradox yet and if you venture to areas you couldn’t normally it will crash though still enjoy the view. That music track is just field3.ogg and is only there because it didn’t exist and with that function would crash otherwise.. You can listen to or change the background music by swapping out ogg audio files in “MGQ Paradox\Audio\BGM”. Tis true though funny with Little Ilias is she has slightly more dialogue, though its more because she has a roundabout way of saying things where Little Alice is to the point. Revert the status ailments sounds good, some of it was just mapping most effects to icons and I thought I went to far anyway so your input is really appreciated. I did cut some of the wording down as the really long ones currently cause problems, RPG Maker only natively offers 2 lines for descriptions (and I think each line can be around 50 or so characters) and you can fit a lot more in Japanese then English… I’m looking to see if something could be added to increase the amount of text descriptions can have without shrinking them as after a point they are either to small or overlap becoming worthless.

        Currently I use notepad++, notepad-plus-plus.org, because sometimes higher editors will alter the file in undesirable ways, encoding in UTF-8 without BOM, using the TextFX Characters plugin to handle some data filters. It seems to work fine with speed, at least better then the default ms notepad, though if you make an insane search/replace request it has problems (like replacing a few million things at once) however it will track edits and gives you interesting details.

      • Ok then one more thing did you change anything else in the database file I gave you other than the icons for status effects? I’m asking because I wanna know if I should continue on the one with the icons or on my own file there’s still a lot more to do as far as I can remember I gave up probably halfway through the Demon Arts since it was already evening and I kinda had enough for the day. I’ll try notepad++ and see how it does but for now I need to know if I should continue on my own database file or on the one you gave me.
        Also I know about crashing the game, I knew it would crash if I went to certain areas but I did it anyway. Twice. :))
        I also opened the platinum chest and was not impressed with the contents.

      • A few things where changed in that one, some Names were reviewed and corrected to match the other list I’m working with and I’ll have to probably do some evil magic to make that list look pretty and match the database… I’ll go through and change the Status Icons back to names but as that one contains most of your work and corrections its probably the more updated one, also next release will try to correct the item descriptions view. After a bit of research I stumbled on a little line which lead to some corrections, item descriptions will now use 4 lines instead of 2 (I figure double the default sounds like a good start) and a custom word wrap was made to handle items containing “Target:” differently as those seem to be stats then description instead of just description. It does shrink the item list view a bit but that benefit seems worth it…

      • Ok so I’ll work on yours then. After messing around with the Script database file I finally fond the culprit who’s causing the invalid byte error. And it’s wordpad. whenever I edit one of those files and save afterwards I get that error when I try to start the game. I did get Notepad ++ and I’m going to start using it from now on.
        That’s a great find! Now if we could only crack Dargoth’s % calculation of skills. Well you…i have 0 knowledge regarding programming. I’ll see what else I can do and when I have a considerable amount I’ll up the file on mega.

        If interested, I have some programming skills to share: Java language, I can make complex computation and design graphical interfaces. I already mentioned it, but I would like to make a specialized editor, like I made one for Violated Heroine translation on Assembla (the editor is on GitHub).

        I also have a personal server, so I can create personal accounts for some people who are working on Paradox stuff. If you think it can simplify the storage and sharing, instead of using external websites. For instance, the authorized people update the file on my server with a FTP client, and anyone can access it through a persistent HTTP link. I (or someone) can even make a simple website to have a nice display and organize all that. If some people are interested, contact me by e-mail (sazaju@gmail.com), I will see what I can do.

      • Sazaju, sent you an email hopefully it wasn’t to long; Thanks again for offering to help.

        Casian Sarpe Socaci, Thank you as well and here is a pic of how I used the RPG Maker Editor to pull those formulas Dargoth had for Skill 6; perhaps a picture will make it clearer though there are various formula charts online (and many devs spend lots of time trying to figure them out)

I didn’t get anything done today due to family stuff hopefully I’ll get something done tomorrow or the day after. It’s days like this when I wish I were at work, after 3:30pm no one bothers me there anymore. I didn’t even get to take a glance at what’s new in the last EX patch. I’ll check in after I update the database more and I’ll try to come up with “words of defeat” for the script file. I really wanted to do that for some reason.

      • Thats not a problem Casian Sarpe Socaci, enjoy time with the family.

        As for whats new a few things:
        * ScriptText Update
        – EX now handles script call display_skill_name
        * Testing Rename Function In Map 228 – Pocket Castle 1F South
        – This can be found by the big door with the sparkling sign, I made one on the left side and if you examine it there is an option to rename actors. Please make a backup of your save before using just in case. Also as most names are hard coded it only effects menus at this time.
        – Thanks To NoName, Desert Eagle, And Everyone That Participated In “What should Actor 94 be named?” the following actors have new default names:
        ‘Look Through’ To ‘Luxuru’
        ‘Banyi Chan’ To ‘Buny’
        ‘Haut-Rhin’ To ‘Orlan’
        ‘Radora’ To ‘Ragora’
        – Note: For Rename Change To Take Effect Please Test Newly Added Rename Feature
        * Override The Item Description Help Menu To Use 4 Lines Instead Of 2 And Added Word Wrap Which Tries To Keep Each Line Bellow 60 Characters (Along With Filtering Any Items That Have The Word “Target:” Specially, “I’ll Probably Make Some Corrections To This Later)
        * Obviously The Updates We Made To DatabaseTextEnglish.rvtext
        * A Few Updates To DialoguesEnglish.rvtext Though Not As Much As I Originally Wanted
        – Also I Noticed A Few Missed Entries And Have A Patch For That Until The Next Update

  21. I’m gonna take a guess and say that the angels in alt iliasville are non recruitable. If they can be recruited, how would one go about doing so?

    • Desert Eagle permalink

      Probably by waiting until part 2 and then finding them in another location. Or part 3.

      …If you want to, you CAN try raising your affection level with them. Those angels refuse talking with you but you can still flatter them using a high level speech skill. Flattery always raises the affection level by 5; It’ll take some time to get to 100 but it can be done.

      I raised affection level with both of those angels to 100 just for the heck of it. However, maybe that affection level can be carried over to their recruitable counterparts in the future? Maybe, or maybe not.

      • Chiron Maximus permalink

        I know for a fact that the angels you’re talking about are 100% non-recruitable, and I highly doubt that they’ll become recruitable in the future. I could be wrong, but for now I believe I’m correct.

        The underlying idea of MGQ:P has been to make every monster girl recruitable. I believe Ranael and Nagael are no exceptions to that. Just not in part 1.

    Is there a new EX translation? I tried one i found on ULMF, but for some reason it made me auto submit most of the time.

        NoName and Desert Eagle brought up a good point about a few actors being incorrectly named.
        I want to gauge what would be a good correction as this affects a few entries

      • DungeonMasterBobbySmith permalink

        MGQ_EX, During the screen you first run into Iilas (near slime village) there are some untranslated words that appear above her.

      • Thanks for finding that DungeonMasterBobbySmith
        Map 012 – Iliasville Mountains – EV057
        Script: display_skill_name(“さばきのいかづち”)
        should be
        Script: display_skill_name(“Thunder of Judgment”)
        Probably a few places that do… I’ll create a filter for those script calls later and see how many are affected, perhaps I’ll clean up the Iliasville Mountains dialogue next while I’m at it.

        Is there a way for me to translate the text from Japanese to English? It used to be English when it was version 1.02, but it turned back to Japanese when I updated it to 1.21 and used your EX decryption.

  23. So hype for the new patch! Just finished the game with gibberish engrish and only got the general gist of what the story is about. Not to mention that talking to random npc’s is worthless.

    can you beat sphinx or she’s too op? if yes, what strategy did u guys use?

    • If I’m not mistaken I beat Sphinx unintentonately with Luka alone. Make him a medium, give him a convert ring, archangel bra, holy rod and anything else that increases willpower or magic, I didn’t need Endure for this fight. Cast Sylph and Gnome over and over and you should win in no time.

      • Anonymous permalink

        oh, can you pls tell me where to get a lot of small medal for archangel bra, and where to get holy rod and the ring?

      • Small medals are dropped by Honey pots and mimic girls in the basement of the collapsed towertower after you beat the game. You can get the ring a number ofpornofin pornof casino, witch hunt village, steal from jellyfish girl or fairy B or get it as a gift from Lucia lisa or crowley. The rod can be obtained from a chest in Lucia’s tower.
        Desert, you don’t need anything polished, just Sylph and Gnome as summons and you can beat Sphinx alone just try it, see how easy it is. I also managed to beat nanabi with that strat and again with dumb luck I beat Alice too. Carrie scared her with that paralysis inducing skill at the start of the battle, Daisy Bell, Purifying light. Monster Lord went down in 3 turns.

      • Do you get the sphinx as a follower when you defeat her, or is it pointless?

      • You just get the achievment “No more riddles”

    • Desert Eagle permalink

      She can be beaten. You need a full lv 30 party with skills and teamwork polished to a certain degree.

      Beating her is completely optional though, and it only gives an achievement.

    Anyone knows where to get Intermediate job for Humans ?

    • Desert Eagle permalink

      …? You mean upgrade the race “human”?

      I’m not sure such a thing exists. Well, at least not in part 1 yet.

      • Anonymous permalink

        Well, “Worm Summoner” (What Lily, Lucia and the Witch Hunt Villagers are) is an upgrade to the human species, and is counted in the game files as such – if you cheat yourself the necessary upgrade item, you can upgrade your humans to tentacled monstrosities.
        If you don’t want to cheat, you can still get them by recruiting Lily/Lucia, though only for the characters that already start with that race.

        Then there’s an intermediate race that has Fallen Angel, Noble Yoma (yes, those two are advanced races that you can’t yet unlock) and Human as prerequisite.

      • Desert Eagle permalink

        Oh yeah. Worm Summoners. That’s definitely a direct upgrade from humans.

        I should have remembered that. Lily is part of my main team. Others upgrades are not really available in part one so I like to avoid talking about them.

    • Anonymous permalink

      Some people (in “Witch Hunt Village”, pretty late in the game) start out with the advanced “Worm Summoner” (or something like that) class, which is an advanced human race – but only characters who already start with that race can “get” it.

      There is also one other advanced human race, but it has some crazy prerequisites that you won’t be able to get in the first part unless you directly modify the game files.

    I’m about to enter the feud between Lucia and Lily, and I was wondering which of them was better and/or not evil. Btw, here’s a bug: when I talked to Lily, there were no words, but then the choice came up and I had no idea what I was selecting.

    • JohnTitor permalink

      I would probably say Lily is the less evil of the two.

      • Chiron Maximus permalink

        Are you sure? When i talked to Lucia, with the patch that makes every sentence make little to no sense (although I have found very few sentences that fit the part), and got the idea that her and the rebels are stopping Lily from expanding her control, or something. I have no idea who to choose, cause I want to know which choice won’t give future consequences and will yield a partner that’s the strongest of the twp.

      • Desert Eagle permalink

        Lily, as you may know, didn’t exactly have a great childhood. She gained power and spread that power to others who had suffered like her. That power was then used to kill the men who had commited horrible atrocities against them.

        Lily seeks to spread that power elsewhere as well, to seek girls who have been horribly mistreated and give them power to help themselves. People may or may not die as a result of that but… those who can’t help themselves would actually get help.

        Lucia believes that spreading the power they have would be a disaster. She wants to contain it within Witch Hunt/Magister Village and keep it there. It probably would prevent people from being squeezed to death by tentacles. However, the fact is that the power will stay in the village, and never be used for others. It will just be their little priviliege.

        It’s not exactly a black and white decision. Give help or prevent possible deaths. Just choose the girl you like. It should even be possible to recruit both of them if you play on NG+.

      • Chiron Maximus permalink

        I see. Well, far be it from me to deny strength to those who need it. I’ll help Lily; Also what do you mean both in NG+? You mean to say when you enter NG+, you keep all the girls you recruited and can recruit the ones you haven’t? Like if you choose Alice in the first run though, you’re saying in NG+, you can have Alice from the first run and then choose Ilias, so you can have both in the NG+ run? Is that what you’re saying?

      • Desert Eagle permalink

        No, I don’t think it will work with Alice and Ilias (I haven’t tried). It should work with Lily and Lucia though. You see, once you choose a side, you can’t recruit the other girl. If you play on NG+ and choose the other side, you should then be able to have both Lily and Lucia in your team.

      • Chiron Maximus permalink

        Well, that’s interesting to know, but before I try NG+, I’d like to know that I can get both Alice and Ilias on my team, cause I’m a bit ocd and don’t like to leave choices unchosen.

    • Desert Eagle permalink

      I chose Lily.

      …Because reasons.

      • I do realize how many there are but don’t go back to all of them just the previous 2 ones. I learned a lot about the game since those were the ones that made me start following the site. Tell you what if you got any question about the game just reply to one of my comments I have that little notification thingy and I’ll try my best to help you. 😛

      • Chiron Maximus permalink

        I may just take you up on that. For now, in case I need to in the future, are there any other guides and lists that would come in handy?

      • Well aside from that spreadsheet there’s a bare-boned walkthrough out there but I don’t have a link to it anymore since I sort of know what and how to do to get through the game. Except for getting all the goods in Vanilla’s stall.
        Also apart from this you could try ULMF Paradox thread. I’m sure you’ll find useful info in those posts.

      • Chiron Maximus permalink

        I’ll check out the blog. Also, do you mean this? http://pastebin.com/zaNGkJF2

      • Yup that’s it. The one and only walkthrough I know of. I have in mind making my own detailed version but that’s a project for the distant future, something like that takes a lot of organizing and thought. And I’ll only do it if someone else doesn’t beat me to it. Whoever did this did it very rushed. Not that I blame the guy, it was pretty helpful to me and other people.

  36. Is there any follower who’s “the best cook”, or is there nobody with a trait that matters?

    • Desert Eagle permalink

      Lemon the ustrel is probably the best cook. She can always use cooking skills and she gets 130% bonus to her cooking skills.

      There’s also Eva who can always use Thievery, Mercantile, Oracle, Dancing, Singing Cooking, Talk, Medicine and Service skills. She doesn’t get a bonus to her cooking but if you want a support character, she’s a pretty good choice. Although, sometimes she’ll ignore your order and instead uses an oracle skill.

      • Eva is not a good choice for cooking from what I read here and there, exactly like Alice and the BF from the Slum that collects bottles of cum she sometimes eats what she cooks on the spot.

      • Desert Eagle permalink

        Alice sometimes eats the food she cooks immediately? I don’t remember that happening when I made her cook.

      • I heard she does. I know the BF girl did it once and I did read around here about it and I think in the ULMF forum as well.

      • JohnTitor permalink

        That would be hilarious if she does, it also fits her character.

      • CivilDeviation permalink

        Hah, I loved Eva! Sadly she is only really good on lower difficulties anyway. On hell and especially paradox, one misfire with a suboptimal team and you go back to the drawing boards.

    • Chiron Maximus permalink

      They need to take some damage, but not be defeated in order for enemies to temp you. Not all enemies will tempt you though, and there is an item that makes the temptations come more often. It’;s called the lovestruck perfume (might have a different name for you) and you get it in Port Natalia.

      • Eden permalink

        Thanks. Is there anyway to see those scenes without having them tempt you or CG is the only thing available?

      • Chiron Maximus permalink

        You can find every available CG, from character images to rape CGs, (Unless your download was bad) in the pictures folder located in the graphics folder. IMO, the CGs with the girls looking right at you are my favorite. Oh, just as a heads up, if you haven’t gotten all the way through chapter one yet, I recommend using the search bar to jump right to the CGs that start with “ev_”, since those are the temptation and rape sequences and you would avoid the CGs that contain spoilers.

      • Eden permalink

        What I meant was that is there anyway to request them trigger those new scenes. I know that I can go throw the library and find the CG but I want some texts. Just like how you can request them in MGQ trilogy.

      • Chiron Maximus permalink

        Each wild monster has only one, two at most for some monsters, temptation scenes. If they do implement a request system in battle, it will take a really long time for the developers to add in all those lines of code and then test it to see if it works, and you know that would make the game take EVEN longer.

      • Anonymous permalink

      • Cheat Engine
        http://www.cheatengine.org/

        Used as a memory editor for applications. When a game starts it is loaded in memory, as you play variables get updated in memory, well if you have an idea of how the data is flowing you can use it to figure it out and make changes in your favor.

      • NightmareChild permalink

        (Video Link at the Bottom)

        Leveling Job Xp is the easiest. Simply set you’re entire party to a new job (putting them all at level 1), then go out and fight. take the amount of job Xp you gain and put this into cheat engine Xp*2+1 and hit New scan then First scan. Get into another battle and repeat the process. After 3 or 4 battles you’ll be left with 8 addresses (or however many party members you’re working with). Change their stats to 9999 and you’ll max out their job.

        (ALWAYS make sure it’s an odd number, otherwise the game will cash)

        For everything else just use the skill seeds.For example. If you have 5 Life Nuts. Do a new scan (5*2+1) Use a nut and do it again (4*2+1). Once you get the address, congrats. Infinite Hp Up.

        Also this trick works with nearly every item. Herbs, money, Gold Coins, Armor, etc.

        Here’s a long video that shows you how to do it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hzkZw2ilUuw

      after a fight, not the amount of xp or job xp you received
      scan for increased value by
      for the value enter xp*2 then scan next,
      do until your left 8 addresses (8 party) for xp or until left 16 cause job + race xp
      then all the value to 9999(should be odd number),
      fight again, then you should maxed lvl

      • HotGear permalink

        You need to install the program cheat engine then run it and select the program from a list after clicking the flashing box, after this to find the value:
        If this game is on RPG Maker then you have to multiply the value your looking at by 2 and add 1 onto that.
        For example, if I’m looking at a value of 2 in game the value I search for is 5.
        Just keep doing this until your left with the least amount of values in the box and make sure the value you set it as is also multiplied+1 otherwise it can crash the game.

      • Anonymous permalink

        Ok this is what I did:

        then i choose increased value by => enter the value of exp I gain + 1 then next scan

        ?

        Sorry for delay (if you were waiting) you need to multiply the value by 2 then add 1 the new value every time you scan. Sorry if this is hard to understand.

The fix involves loading a version of EX that has a crippled version of that script, run a special uninstall script to remove it, then save the cleaned save… As I realize what I just mentioned sucks I’ll add something special to the patch, an option for a humble apology. Nothing to fancy probably the option for money. Though I plan to test your save a bit more before I release a fix just to be sure.

        Glad to help, wish i could do more to help the ex patch but i don’t have any notable skills except passion for monster girls.

      • Element, that in and of itself is a notable skill! I know errors are annoying and those that report them instead of just saying this sucks helps to fix them. Though I think I’ll look into Git repository for an official troubleshooting tracker to help ease the burden and more easily document errors.

        However This Should Work, Keep A Backup Of The Afflicted Save For A Few Days Just To Be Safe….

    Getting close to a month after update. I’m in no way trying to rush dargoth but, we have had almost zero ( two posts ) communication through this whole process. Sometimes all it takes is a quick “hey I’m alive and, this is what’s been happening over the last few weeks.” Even if there’s nothing substantial worth saying it’s nice to know someone is still looking at the site.

      He posted on /vg/ about a day ago saying that the patch has been about a day away for a while now due to work/life getting in the way. So there isn’t much work left for the patch, but work is kicking his ass and he hasn’t had the time.

      • Anonymous permalink

        I should add that for future reference it might be worthwhile to check /mgq/ board on 4chan every now and then to see if he’s posted. That board is dead enough that it can last a good couple of days and every now and then either him or MGL have posted on it.

    • Definitely this weekend!

        Finally 🙂 we have been waiting quite a while for this and it’s finally being released XD

      • I was going to post a lengthy prayer to whatever deity Dargoth represents for an anwser to when it would come but since I got my anwser before I could do that so i’ll use my traditional. Thank god for Dargoth (It’s usally Jim Sterling).

    I’ve also got the same issue as element. none of my saves worked after updating though i wont be able to upload a save for a while since im away from my computer that has the game on it.

    • My Apologies Storm, released a fix for the problem so when you get to your computer try it out. If the problem persist let me know and I’ll look into this further.

      • storm permalink

        thank you i will try it out out tonight when I’m back.

    How exactly does someone cheat in items? I’ve seen a few posts about that, and I’ve got no idea how they do it.

    • Anonymous permalink

      By using Cheat Engine.

      Essentially it allows you to change values of things in your game. It’s as simple as downloading the program, hooking it up to your game, and then searching for numbers. Let’s say you’ve got 120 G. You search for 120 and the program will return a huge list of addresses pertaining to that numerical value, one of which pertains specifically to the amount of gold you have.

      You buy a herb for 10 G. Now you have 110 G. Well, now the program lets you search for addresses pertaining to the value 110 from the list you previously got. Hopefully you get the idea. Eventually you’ll single out one address which you can directly input any number which will give you as much money as you want.

      If you’re clever you don’t need to know the initial value of whatever parameter you want to manipulate, which lets you master jobs and races very easily.

      It doesn’t let you completely break the game or anything, but it’s very, very easy to use.

        I’m well aware of how to modify values using cheat engine, to give you more of something you already have a few of, I was under the impression people were using some debug menu to add items they didn’t already have, that is what I was asking about, adding items you don’t already have.

        ive tried right clicking and i dont see a combo box option at all

      • storm permalink

        alright i got the combo box to work but i cannot find the address for alice and sonya’s exp/job exp. I found it for lime since she starts at level 1 so starting at 5exp after beating a slime worked but it only found limes after following the unknown initial for alice/sonya.

      • here, for all you cheat engine guys, just right click value type, and define new custom type (auto assemble) delete everything in there, and replace it with the following script, save it, and you no longer have to do any math, just search for the exact value:

        alloc(TypeName,256)
        alloc(ByteSize,4)
        alloc(PreferedAlignment, 4)
        alloc(ConvertRoutine,1024)
        alloc(ConvertBackRoutine,1024)

        TypeName:
        db ‘RPG VX type’,0

        ByteSize:
        dd 4

        PreferedAlignment:
        dd 1

        //The convert routine should hold a routine that converts the data to an nteger (in eax)
        //function declared as: stdcall int ConvertRoutine(unsigned char *input);

        //Note: Keep in mind that this routine can be called by multiple threads at the same time.

        ConvertRoutine:
        [32-bit]
        push ebp
        mov ebp,esp
        push ecx
        mov ecx,[ebp+8]
        [/32-bit]

        //at this point ecx contains the address where the bytes are stored

        //put the bytes into the eax register
        mov eax,[ecx] //second fun fact, addressing with 32-bit registers doesn’t work in 64-bit, it becomes a 64-bit automatically (most of the time)
        shr eax,1 //shift right by 1 bit (divide by 2)

        //and now exit the routine
        [64-bit]
        ret
        [/64-bit]
        [32-bit]
        pop ecx
        pop ebp
        ret 4
        [/32-bit]

        //The convert back routine should hold a routine that converts the given integer back to a row of bytes (e.g when the user wats to write a new value)
        //function declared as: stdcall void ConvertBackRoutine(int i, unsigned char *output);
        ConvertBackRoutine:
        [32-bit]
        push ebp
        mov ebp,esp
        push edx //save the registers
        push ecx
        mov edx,[ebp+0c]
        mov ecx,[ebp+08]
        [/32-bit]

        //at this point edx contains the address to write the value to
        //and ecx contains the value

        push eax
        push edx

        mov edx,[edx] //edx now contains the original value
        and edx,1 //only save the first bit

        mov eax,ecx //eax gets the user input value
        shl eax,1 //shift left by 1 bit (multiply by 2)
        or eax,edx //add the bits of the original value

        pop edx
        mov [edx],eax //write the new value into the old value
        pop eax

        [64-bit]
        //everything is back to what it was, so exit
        ret
        [/64-bit]

        [32-bit]
        //cleanup first
        pop ecx
        pop edx
        pop ebp
        ret 8
        [/32-bit]

      In addition to the Cheat Engine thing, it’s also possible to decrypt the game files using “All Decryptor” (or something similar) and then literally rewrite the game with RPGmaker VX Ace.

      That way, you can easily place NPCs and boxes that give whatever you want anywhere in the game.

  48. Is death supposed to drop anything? I defeated her, got the achievement 死に打ち勝った者, and death will not let me fight her again, however I did not get any experience or loot. Error? or is that fight utterly pointless?

    • Never mind, I appear to have received a bit of xp and a robe, it didn’t inform me, and after that fight I was not thinking straight

      Gaia’s Robe is freaking sweet. ^_^

        (Or maybe “Robe of Gaia” would be better?)

    why i return at floor 1 when im already at floor 33? there is no checkpoint? and i cant save too inside the labyrinth of chaos.. wtf

    • Desert Eagle permalink

      I believe the idea of Chaos Labyrinth is that you try to go as far as possible. The level you get to and get defeated at is your highscore. “Clearing” Chaos Labyrinth isn’t the point. It’s how far you get what matters.

      Well, that, and getting to floor 100.
