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    UPDATE 1100 (Thanks to MahouKenshi) (THIS UPDATE IS OBSOLETE):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    UPDATE 1150 (Includes all fixes in 1100) (THIS UPDATE IS OBSOLETE):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

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

    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 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,

    RANCE 5D+VI TO BE OFFICIALLY RELEASED IN ENGLISH BY MANGAGAMER!

    Yep. Hoping that whatever you know, you don't blurt it out or paste anything anywhere or tell anyone about it. Japanese can read/translate English too. We'd love to see Rance 8 be successful and part of the game franchise is its continuing story. So please just keep everything you know to yourself so everyone else can enjoy it by the time it gets released.

    In all honesty, if it were only possible, it would be nice if you just deleted anything concerning about hacking the game before it's even released. Actually, you shouldn't have hacked it way before it was even released. It was just a demo. And it might make Japan even more paranoid than it is already.

    All that said, Kenshin's going to Rance's to rid herself of her weak "self" as said in the demo text. Hope that isn't as serious as it sounds. I can't wait to actually play this game now. However that skill limit thing to game over and the curse itself seem daunting challenges. Probably even tougher than Rance VI was in terms of limits.

      Like they said it does help them foresee what they'll face when translating the real thing. And let's face it, it IS AliceSoft's fault for keeping all that text inside and not deleting it... If they can translate English and if they (perhaps) keep track of things going on with their games outside Japan they should be aware that there are people who can and are interested in breaking into their games and reading/TLing things (Sengoku Rance was translated a long, long time ago), right?

      Anyway as long as they don't spoil anything further about the storyline I think everything will be okay. Let's hope zweiter isn't getting bombarded with requests to share the extracted text file

        Yeah, I guess. But Sengoku Rance wasn't hacked into until much later, like I think months after the game was released. Hoping that even if he does get bombarded, he doesn't send out the extracted text file.

          You're statement is assuming that Alicesoft even gives a shit about what foreigners think about their product. Let me remind you, Alicesoft doesn't have a market outside of Japan, if they aren't selling anything outside of Japan then they really don't have to care what we do (as long as we're not making a profit out of it). The reason they don't sell anything outside of Japan is so that they won't be held responsible if it were somehow leaked into the media, they could just fall back on "Getting this product outside of Japan is illegal".

          And Japan is paranoid because of the media here in the west.

          And I doubt he'll send out the text for many reasons.

            Why you no understand me posting?

            It's not foreigners having purchasing power or what-not that I was talking about. It's that the hacked text somehow going out to the Japanese from foreign hackers that's the main problem. You know, the same Japanese who buy these things that scour the internet and which Alicesoft is dependent upon with their livelihood.

            And hopefully you're right, that he doesn't just go sending out the text. I was just worried when he went "You want spoilers... I know everything" on this thread.

                So two characters (demons) from Kichikuou are going to show up. Hum. Don't recognize the rest of the new ones.
                Maybe I had wanted it this way.
                Maybe I had entrusted my death to you all along.

                  Did Stella appear in Rance 3? I didn't play that game. I recall she had a grudge against Rance in Kichikuou.

                    Even if they don't care about outside, if someone outside Japan spoils the text, the Japanese can still get those spoilers. Now I'd certainly expect AliceSoft to give some shit about Japanese Rance fans finding out everything about their new game even before it was released. Which is why...

                    The wiki tells me she did and was fucked by Rance. Seems to have a "very sensitive body".

                    • Honestly, it's not like there isn't any Japanese people taking apart the game either. The script extraction/insertion tools and stuff WERE made by the Japanese after all, weren't they?
                      Maybe I had wanted it this way.
                      Maybe I had entrusted my death to you all along.

                        But Rance series also were not as popular with western audience prior Sengoku as it became after it.

                        And did Rance really fuck Stella in Rance 3?

                        I remember he had H scene with her but was stopped before penetration and thus Stella escaped as a virgin and was a virgin in Kichikou too.

                        Also I liked Stella's old design in Kichikou much better than the new one.

                        • For what it's worth, the translated Rance Chronicles up on Alicesoft site says Satella (not Stella, which would be a different katakana) was "Only caressed"

                          Kichikuou had a lot of really nice and honestly better character designs. I like Sill and Magic's version in Kichikuou a lot more than how they usually look like.
                          Maybe I had wanted it this way.

                          • Well, I just saw the wiki so I really don't know much, wasn't even close to finishing Rance 3 (not even halfway).

                            Anyway what's up with the new level god? What happened to Ellis? Come to think of it she wasn't in Rance 7 either.

                            And is the name of the maid wearing glasses to the right of her supposed to be pronounced "Biscuitta Baloons"? Hilarious.

                            • From what I was told. (I wasn't told the actual spoilers)

                              There were actually very few spoilers in the text.

                                Well Sills look in Sengoku was pretty good too as the hairpains removed the retarded afro of hers.

                                I am fine with new Magic too. Her forehead may look funny, but its a rather distuinguish and original way to outline the character so I dont mind.

                                Stella on the other hand - the old one was sexy - tall enough, long legs and enough bust to make her curvy.

                                The new one is kind of ugly.

                                He body is not as long, making her look too short, her face from beautiful became brat like. Yet she doesnt have the loli's DFC (delicious flat chest) too. She is stuck in an ugly middle. Even her clothes make her look like a clown - like these oversized gloves.
