    UPDATES (MAIN GAME ONLY, NOT MAGNUM UPDATES):

    Spoiler

    UPDATE 1100 (Thanks to MahouKenshi) (THIS UPDATE IS OBSOLETE):

    MF Link


    UPDATE 1150 (Includes all fixes in 1100) (THIS UPDATE IS OBSOLETE):

    SS Link

    MF Link (Rome01)

    UPDATE 1600 AND NEWER UPDATES (OBSOLETE) are not posted as it's pretty large a file and useless for all practical purposes of most visitors of this topic Go get Magnum instead, it's got all 1.600 features and its own unique content.



    2.0 "Magnum" (EXPANSION PACK):

    INFO: http://blog.alicesoft.com/archives/3198974.html
    Getchu: http://www.getchu.com/soft.phtml?id=729330

    Spoiler


    Prominent Changes:
    • The interface will be revamped, and probably in 2.0 (probably not 1.6 since 1.6 is just a software update and 2.0 is the update+new content) content Matilda will be added as a PC plus the strategist galmon Battle Note will be added (appearance is different than in Galzoo Island).
    • Molrun(?) curse will be modified. The first time will be same as before (reset to 1), but 2nd time onwards it'll be -5 level, but level requirement for H next time will be raised, with the item still getting absorbed, so powerlevelling will be somewhat easier.
    • A girl can only absorb FIVE items by H-ing. If you H'd your girl more than 5 times for item absorption, upto 5 excess items will be returned to your inventory. If you did this more than 10 times, then further absorbed items will be lost permanently.
    • Party screen will show 32 people at a time in the upper pane now (switchable between 10-char and 32-char display).
    • There will be an encounter bar showing how long until next encounter happens.
    • Items can now be locked to avoid accidental selling/donating.
    • There will be a fast move mode that lets your movement be superfast (same as holding Ctrl in some games?).
    • Zooming methods are slightly modified too but not sure what that's supposed to mean.
    • Characters not participating in battle will also get a small amount of exp now.
    • Mai-hime skill of Atago to be slightly powered up.

    COMPATIBILITY:

    Skill effects and their costs as well as the effect of some items equipment etc. will be modified for balancing purpose, so skill pts. of all chars will be returned with all learned skills removed after updating and your existing items will have their power/effect amount modified. Heroines powered up with sex might get powered down as the curse/H system changes a bit. They say there'll still be a "few more restrictions", but hopefully it won't be as bad as Daiteikoku...

    Known Issues:
    • When installing, progress bar is stuck at 0% for a long time. This can happen depending on your computer setup (especially antiviruses), give it a lot of time (10 minutes? ) and it'll eventually proceed.
    • "Kaikai UP" skill is lost, whoever has them. This is a known issue and has been fixed in update 2.010. Therefore, after installing Magnum update to at least v2.010 immediately before loading your savegame.
    • In quest "各員奮励努力せよ", if you have Torako or Katsuko in your starting party, the game stops responding. This is fixed in latest version, therefore update to at least v2.010 before attempting this quest.
    • In certain setups that have Intel onboard displays such as Intel 945 or Intel GMA950, game may fail to display map correctly and stop responding when starting quest "川中島に行こう". For compatibility with these display adapters, a specific update has been issued. See MF download link added below. It is not recommended to apply that update if you don't use Intel onboard displays (using AMD/NVIDIA GPUs instead) or are not encountering problems when launching aforementioned quest.





    UPDATES TO RANCE QUEST MAGNUM (INCLUDES RQ MAGNUM 2.082, ITS GRAPHICAL ERROR FIX AND LATEST TADA VERSION UPDATES)
    NOTE: NONE OF THE PATCHES INSIDE THIS SECTION ARE ENGLISH PATCHES, THEY'RE ALL SOFTWARE UPDATES. FURTHERMORE, THEY ALL REQUIRE YOU TO INSTALL RANCE QUEST MAGNUM AKA v2.0 FIRST AND WILL NOT WORK WITH THE ORIGINAL VERSION. At the same time, v2.0 is a commercial product and not a free patch, so download link to that will NOT BE provided here as it is against forum rules. Please DO NOT ask for that, doing that can get you BANNED. Get it elsewhere.

    Before using this first try launching quest "川中島に行こう" and see if you're actually having problems.

    ================================================== ======================================

    UPDATE 2082 TADA MODDED VERSIONS

    These updates are personal customizations of RQM 2.082 made by TADA, the Rance series mastermind. These are officially neither supported nor debugged, but enhances high difficulty gameplay as seen fit by TADA and has lots of extra goodies (skills, quests, characters; most are world 3 exclusive though). Each update includes all the stuff from the previous update as well as new content and fixes so you might not need anything older than the latest one. Still, in case a newer version causes some serious issue, you might want to rollback to an older TADA version or the original 2.082 version. ALL THESE REQUIRE RANCE QUEST MAGNUM AND ARE NOT SUPPOSED TO WORK WITH VANILLA RQ.

    12th September 2012 version (OBSOLETE, MODDED FROM ABOVE VERSION AND UNDEBUGGED)

    SS Link

    4th October 2012 version (OBSOLETE, MODDED FROM ABOVE VERSION AND UNDEBUGGED)

    SS Link

    7th November 2012 version (OBSOLETE, MODDED FROM ABOVE VERSION AND UNDEBUGGED)
    This version contains 1 new added quest not included in the original v2.082 of Rance Quest Magnum (exclusive to world 3).


    SS Link

    6th February 2013 version (LATEST UNSUPPORTED, MODDED FROM ABOVE VERSION AND UNDEBUGGED)
    This version contains further added quests (exclusive to world 3) AND TWO NEW PLAYABLE CHARACTERS not included in the original v2.082 of Rance Quest Magnum.


    SS Link

    Disclaimed by TADA himself as ABSOLUTELY UNDEBUGGED, USE WITH CAUTION AND A FULL BACK UP OF YOUR SAVE.

    INFORMATION ABOUT TRANSLATION (LQ TRANSLATION PATCHES AVAILABLE):

    Rance Quest translation project was kind of stalled as the main translator of HGTP (the initial group that wanted to TL RQ), zweiterversuch, got his computer killed and has been offline for a long time now. Multiple people and groups have either tried or stated to have tried or stated to have contemplated trying to work on the translations. However...

    RQ/M AND ALL RANCE SERIES TRANSLATIONS REST IN PEACE AS MANGAGAMER HAS STARTED LICENSING ALICESOFT TITLES, STARTING WITH BEAT BLADES HARUKA. Nothing happening until either AliceSoft gets over their fear of getting Rapelay'd if too many westerners become aware of their titles with an ever victorious rapist protagonist or until someone else revives the translation. Tulip Goddess Maria has stated that she intends to finish the TL but will not release it to the public as she intends to try selling it to Mangagamer instead at some point of time.

    Spoiler


    So what's available to me right now?

    In the meantime, SomeLoliCatgirl has made a machine translation by making the game script go through ATLAS, and crazylegsryan has a partial translation with disputed translation quality for those who really can't wait and are prepared to tear their hairs off for a translation, you could try them, but SomeLoliCatgirl's version being primarily ATLAS translation it's crappy as ever, and half the time you might not have a clue what's actually being said. While the maker manually corrected a few things to some extent, still DO NOT EXPECT QUALITY ENGLISH OR EVEN PROPER UNDERSTANDING OF SENTENCES FROM THIS. You have been warned so don't whine about how shitty it is after you try it out. Back up your original Rance Quest .ain file as well as savedata before overwriting it with this. Aside from that, as mentioned before a patch that only tranlates options, characters, item & skill names and some combat text is available on 4chan.

    • Machine translation script by SomeLoliCatgirl[DEAD]



    Spoiler
    MF Link (needs reupload)

    • LQ Translation materials by crazylegsryan (disclaimer: LQ remark about quality is the thread author's personal opinion, visitors may go ahead and try it and decide whether they like it or not); latest version of patch requires Rance Quest Magnum 2.082 with corresponding latest TADA version.




    • Full interface translation for Rance Quest Magnum v2.050 (from 4chan/Rance Translations):

    Spoiler

    Pastebin

    Note that the link above isn't itself the DL link, carefully read through it to find the actual DL link. Follow the instructions carefully to make it work with your existing installation of Rance Quest Magnum.
    • Probably compatible with Magnum 2.050 only and nothing older OR newer.
    • My Documents folder will be different than the one mentioned in the instructions if you're using Vista/7/8. Find it from your desktop/start menu links.
    • You may need to rename all save data files starting with "ランス・クエスト" to starting with "Rance Quest" or else the existing saves may not work. Example: "ランス・クエスト_020.ASD" -> "Rance Quest_020.ASD". This is not a problem if playing for the first time.



    While a full translation is not available,

        The logo is hilariously similar to Dragon Quest.

        Also
        Spoiler
        How the hell is Reset/Lisette there? Rance hasn't boinked any Kalars yet in the official canon, and Lisette's his daughter. Did he create a Time Paradox or is this game going to take place a long period of time, like Ikusa Megami Verita?
        Maybe I had wanted it this way.
        Maybe I had entrusted my death to you all along.

          Judging by the combat screen, is #8 going to be a more traditional RPG instead of just being another Dai strategy game? (I hope so, I actually kind of hated Rance 7 because of that.)
          I wish those who unsettle you would castrate themselves.

            ^ Yep, absolutely RPG, but Sengoku Rance elements will be there (notice in shot 3 how time advances during battle, it's the same as Rance 7, also other shots on the official site shows Sachiko ally guarding the other people etc.). They're trying to hybridize Rance 7 & 6

            Perhaps they let some villain boink Pastel Kalar (Color?) and give birth to her so people can get loli service. Or perhaps she'll be born right in this game itself depending on the length of the game timeline.

              A nendoroid petit of Risette is going to be released too. I suppose she is going to be part of a special edition:

                Woot. ^,^ Too bad I won't be able to read any of it. lol
                Either way I'll still play it blindly like I did with Rance 6

                Due to the appearance of Rance's Kalar Daughter(in Kichikou anyways) I really think that the game is going to take place in a long period of time.

                  I hope Sill will be playable after mid-game, it was quite a shock to lose her in rance 7...

                  That Nendo petit is CUTE! It'll make a nice companion to Kenshin's one Now if they made a Sill one...

                    Megadeth is a pain in the ass, I hope that I can kick her out of my party very soon, or even better, don't ever use her.

                      Even though I wouldn't go that far, I do think its an odd choice to bring her back along with Prima and Sesuna from Rance 6... I just didn't see them as defining characters of the game, that's all. Why not bring Rocky, Patton, Kaoru, Karoria, Magic or Uruza back instead? Well as long as Suzume is in, I'm all good

                        Fixed for my version.

                        And I've noticed that each game since Rance 5D makes all main heroines of previous games reappear in later games (Rizna in 6, both Rizna & Magic in Sengoku, both + Kenshin & Suzume & Kouhime in 8? ), so a lot of them might return, who knows.

                          Isn't Kouhime supposed to stay at home and guard Sill? Also Isoroku is "busy" with Rance's son, so the remaining main heroines left are Suzume and Kenshin (and Naoe with her)...

                            When did Isoroku have a son of Rance in the true history route?

                              I did read somewhere that Rance & Isoroku's son was also canon, dunno how reliable the source was though.
