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    UPDATE 1100 (Thanks to MahouKenshi) (THIS UPDATE IS OBSOLETE):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    UPDATE 1150 (Includes all fixes in 1100) (THIS UPDATE IS OBSOLETE):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

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

    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 FOR THE TIME BEING 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.

    Relevant Blog Entry: https://rancetranslation.wordpress.c...ions-go-legit/

    Anyway, R5D and R6 have since been released in English for real, so there's hope for RQM/R9, and now in particular 01 and 03.


    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,

    But still, I have completely no idea what's with quests 1-12, 130-134, 120, 127-128, 105-113.
    What are those quests is currently unknown even on japanese wiki.
    i'm gonna take a break, and finish another game.
    Mind to share the CG file please?

    • Even between the console games Fire Emblem is certainly bathing in its popularity. If it was about keeping it fresh it would have been burried down down below other console games, but guess what - it didnt though it stayed relatively the same. The gameplay clicket so they didnt change that. didnt work much on graphics either, just made the deep story and plot as a must to every edition of the game.

      Theres nothing bad to sticking to what seems like the best rather than staying 'fresh' and go heel knows where. There is a reason why Sengoku became so popular and Kichoukou was so popular at its time, while Rance VI and I am willing to bet Rance VIII will never come close to that popularity and sales (thus earnings).

        • Yes, I want Ar Tonelico hentai too But let's not get off topic.

          So, again, anybody managed to figure out how to get a proper ending out of Sachiko's 2nd quest (where Do S Suki eats a sponge cake and you either get to kill him by mistake or spill salt over his cake)?

          • Menus and Skills

            Could somebody up a translation of the various menus and skills please? And a summary of what the misc items do if possible. Thanks.

            • Considering how xenophobic Alicesoft is, I wouldnt be surprised if they made their scripts all over the place.

              It is "Japan Sales Only" after all.

              • Anyway hope, game will be translated as soon as possible.

                  Menus is not impossible, but are you actually expecting someone to translate all SKILLS in this game? Are you aware how many this game has?

                  It'll be done when either the translation finishes or the wikia for Rance Quest is complete.

                    • I didn't really have a problem with the game, though the ending pretty much just directs towards Rance 9. I guess I'll just have a wait a couple more years for Alicesoft to make it, Orz.

                      • To be honest, after playing a fair bit (still 1st playthrough, most of the charas unlocked but still A LOT of grinding to do to "clear" them) and finally managing to make agth recognize them, I discovered skills aren't as many as it seemed at first glance. This is not to say translating and putting them all on the wiki won't be a daunting task, but actually to encourage people to use their brains, it's fairly easy, really, it just gets frustrating as you have to retake them everytime a chara is reset after H (which is, btw, the most annoying part of the gameplay imo, you have to do the same things over and over again, as if the typical grinding gameplay of this genre wasn't boring enough already).

                        Most of the yellow, passive skills are shared by pretty much every character: elemental resistances and bonus points to various attributes mostly; easy to recognize and most of all... well, hardly useful, it's much better to have more attacks available than just some buffs. A few others are either class specific (EX: stealth, berserk, initial guard, etc) and very few (if none) are character specific.

                        Several of the white ones are shared between classes too, like weapon proficency (choose only one per character depending on which weapon you give 'em. Master spear skill, and your spearman will be able to hit from the rear line, etc), "thief" skills (chests and traps), and so on. Most of the character specific skills seem to be part of this category, but most of the time these are defaulted on from level 1, so you can recognize them at first glance.

                        Even attack and defense skills follow a regular pattern between classes, for instance most warriors have atk 1,2,3 with increasing damage cap, then one or two uncapped attacks, an attack that hits the entire enemy frontline instead of a single target and sometimes, finally a character specific, special attack. Mages usually have two spells per element, the first is single target while the second is all enemy.

                        Quite straightforward, even if one can't read a single kanji. We are actually extremely lucky the skill tooltips are hookable text instead of images



                        As for a translation, no, it hasn't started unless someone else than the guys who did the demo already tackled the job (last thing I read their translator was kinda AWOL). As they anyway had crashing issues when trying to translate various components of the interface in the demo and as such had to leave it in japanese, even just an interface translation is probably something that will take A LOT of time and patience. If anyone will really bother, anyway, as the game itself is fairly easy to play while the story seems to be quite unlikely to really motivate a translator.

                          There are a number of posts which basically say the same thing, so whatever is going on, the translation project looks like its on hold until the translator comes back, unless someone else steps up.

                              I really have no idea how you missed the AGTH code in the first post, below the bold red text that says "AGTH CODE FOR RANCE QUEST FOUND!!"
                              In any case, try this code: /HSN4:-14@42E08A. It should grab everything you need.
