    Unit Classes Explanation:





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    UPDATE 1100 (Thanks to MahouKenshi) (THIS UPDATE IS OBSOLETE):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    UPDATE 1150 (Includes all fixes in 1100) (THIS UPDATE IS OBSOLETE):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

    SS Link

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

    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.

    For walkthrough and FAQs:

    Spoiler


    Go to the Rance Quest page on AliceSoft wiki. (Updating in progress)

    To see how to clear puzzling quests: http://alicesoft.wikia.com/wiki/Rance_Quest:Quests (Yet to be organized)




    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...

    As announced as part of their Otakon 2017 announcement, RQ/M IS PICKED BY MANGAGAMER AND WILL BE RELEASED AS A SINGLE PACKAGE. Extent of content however is not confirmed (i.e. if to include the "unsupported" updates) And for once I'll try to be optimistic since they did release Rance 5D+VI already. Unfortunately for the impatient ones like myself, Sengoku Rance is probably gonna come first (which everyone who cares has played through with the unofficial TL a billion times over by now).

    MangaGamer Rance Series Page


    So what's available to me in the meantime? [OUTDATED LINKS]

    Spoiler




    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,

    Whenever Rance makes fuck with a woman, said woman's level cap increases. There are also other ways to increase level caps like with items or by dealing with level goddesses. You know the woman that pops up whenever you level up in Rance Quest? Her name is Virus and she is Rance's personal level goddess.
    Thanks. Actually i only got to play Sengoku Rance so that is new to me.
    If anyone find my post(s) interesting or helpful please give me some reputation; after all, it is the system used in this forum. Thanks.

      Connect this link to go to bb's hut for more Ranceverse info. The Alicesoft wiki also has quite a lot of information.

      type bb's hut on google. you'll find the links on Alicesoft wiki. I think.

        Man, you really should play the whole series. Rance 1&2 are already translated. Rance 1 is pretty old, but it's still a very good and fun game. Rance 2 is pretty old too, BUT Rance 2 received a remake in Alice2010 disc. Translation is compatible with that version.
        Rance 3 is currently being translated. Everything else, besides Sengoku Rance is untranslated. But Rance 4/5D/6/Kichikuou Rance are still very good games. Kichikuou Rance is actually my favorite.

        • Yeah, problem probably will be the lack of translations for the new guys. Only thing I didn't like with 4 and Kichikuoh is how I never really could get the sound/bgm to work on them. I heard there's a patch, but not sure which is which and how to do it.

          EDIT:
          Question? I know TADA said we can play the quests over and over again. But there's no real negative to playing quests over and over again, right? Because I can basically milk some quests in this manner.

            Well, Rance 4 can be played on FM TOWNS emu, and sounds/colors work pretty good(somehow, I don't have character pictures colored on PC98 emu), but for Kichikuou Rance I had to burn a disc, yeah. Never heard of a patch, but I'll research it, cause the game's really GREAT.

              I didn't find it, I made it using ArtMoney. You can do it using AM or Cheat Engine(memory editing programms)
              Ah, never used that one, I usually use the SpoilerAL SSGs. Any tips on how you did what you did.

              • Thanks guys. I am currently reading the BBShut info and find it fun. (Rance getting all the credits, Kentaro struggling and Arios having everything taken away by Rance >.<)

                I need to find time to download the earlier versions and maybe learn Japanese all together. I just hope that they are all still playable under Windows 7.

                      There is currently no SSG for Rance Quest, but doing it with ArtMoney is pretty easy. Artmoney seems to be unable to interfere with exp gains directly, but! we can change the exp bonus value. Open artmoney, choose the process(i get the name of the process in corrupted text), then search the value of exp bonus. The exp bonus is those blue howmanygodknowsexagonal things you pick up that give you 3% exp bonus each. First - take one, search the value 3 in integer 4byte. Take another one - filter value 6. it should give you two values - change them to whatever you want(I use 999999 to get such crazy exp)

                      Well, you know, people learn japanese to understand japanese. Some use AGTH+automatic translator(bad idea, though), but that's not an option currently. Translation is probably not started currently

                        • By the way, I found an item that will increase characters level cap by 5, but no higher than LV 35. It's sold in Tama's shop. Dunno if there are similar items but with more LV cap increase, since it's an accessory.

                            Uh...the game JUST came out, typically a translation for just the basic interface takes about a week or two. If you are looking for more then that, good luck, as that might take years.
