  • [Mod Release] (Illusion) Artificial Girl 3 (Open for business)


    Artificial Girl 3
    Artificial Girl 3 Plus


    EDIT by wurlox

    Just so we can start on the right foot with AG3 Mod releases, as I don't want to do what I did for AG2 and go through 5GB of stuff and rename it all again...heh.

    For simplicity sake, when you name your archive, if you can follow a few simple naming schemes, it'll help people be able to sort the mods they download, as well as make sure the authors get their proper credit.

    So, for example my UI mod is named thus:

    [AG3][interface][English UI][wurlox][v1.0]

    Obviously, its easy to see what kind of mod this is and who made it as well as a version number.

    Fot a clothing mod, I would probably do something like this:

    [AG3][clothes][Mini Skirt][wurlox]

    A hair mod like this:

    [AG3][hair][Wild Hair][wurlox]

    You get the picture...basically [game][mod type][mod name][author][version]

    This is not written in stone, as you can tweak it somewhat, but as long as you keep the basic premise, it'll make things WAAAAAY easier for all of us.

    Thanks for listening and good modding.

    EDIT 2 by wurlox

    This is a MOD RELEASE ONLY thread. No discussions will EVER be tolerated here and posts will be deleted on site!

    Also, we want new original mods. If a clothing mod can be made in the AG3 Character Make DO NOT POST IT!

    If a mod is not yours, but one you found on another site, GIVE PROPER CREDIT!

    If you can't find the name of the author, say so, but at least DO NOT pawn a mod off as yours when it isn't! Believe me, I will find out if such a thing happens and I will have no mercy for the person posting it.

      [Edit by NeonSamurai: Download links are now fixed]

      My sound mod for AG3 is finally done.

      This sound mod took me longer then any previous one, even the beep reduction mod for schoolmate. I spent over 60 hours mapping the sounds and testing them, and 14 hours working on the sounds themselves. Part of this was due to this game having a lot more sounds then previous games, but mostly it was due to the girls not behaving and doing what I needed them to (and figuring out how to get them to do it).

      This mod replaces the ecchi sound effects in Artificial Girl 3 with much more realistic sounds.

      Specifically it replaces/modifies all the main sex sound effects in the game other then the spoke stuff (like moans).
      It also replaces all the walking and peeing sounds with remastered ones.

      Almost all the sounds are sourced from real sounds. All sounds have been extensively edited to try to provide the best sound expirence possible.

      I did NOT personally or physically make any of the sounds in this sound mod, nor did anyone I know.


      I am grateful to all who decide to add to my reputation for liking my work, and in case you wondered I do read the comments I receive from you

      Have fun, hope ya like it

      Also special thanks go out to all the members of the HF-Modding/Translation Club
      wub you guys (ok you can get off now.. don't make me get out the rolled up newspaper)

          AG3 English Interface Mod v1.0

          AG3 English Interface Mod v1.0


          Here is the English User Interface for AG3!

          Not much to it really as Illusion has most of the customizing outside of the actual game, so the UI is very minimal.




          I don't have the small little location icons included as I am trying to figure out a way to make them so you can at least get a idea of where the girls are at. They are so small it's making my work challenging.

          But never fear, I'll figure something out, so stay tuned for v2.0 hopefully soon.

          Full instructions are included, as always, and I have also included Alamar's AG3Decrypt_to_AG3Demo tool as well. (Thanks buddy! )

          Thanks to Khilandros as well...caught a minor glitch in one of my textures.

          As always, ENJOY!

          The mod is available at the HongFire Download area here:

          Hentai Game Mods

          EDIT
          OK. For AG3Decrypt_to_AG3Demo to work, you'll need the .NET Framework installed, at least version 2.0.

          You can do a Google search to find out more...

          Sorry..figured most people would have .NET installed these days.

          EDIT 2
          Forget what I said before about the location icons. There are a couple of really good options for you to use.

          Dramakus has a set, as seen in a few posts above, and even though they are kinda hard to see when in the game, there are very workable once you get used to them. (Nice work, btw Dramakus! )

          maraskan_user also made an awsome set (just go a few posts below this one) with actual text in the baubles, and works very good too.

          I doubt I could do any better then these two great modders, so I'll leave the locations icons out for the time being.

          EDIT 3:
          UPDATE!

          There is also an Illusion Wizzard ready mod you can use:

          Hentai Game Mods

          Even easier to install then the "old-fashioned" way.

          Enjoy!

              (*) save patcher for HAKO is not included

              information on mod file structure
              First of all, the mod file structure is as close to the mod file structure known from SB3 as it was possible. Let's asume I just made a mod named mytest that is clothing mod for all girls. The .7z filename would be something like [SM][all girls][mytest][darkhound][v0.1].7z
              Inside this file there has to be the following file structure: directories in red, files in blue
              [SM][all girls][mytest][darkhound][v0.1].txt -> file with description of the mod
              [SM][all girls][mytest][darkhound][v0.1].jpg -> preview pic for the mod
              [SM][all girls][mytest][darkhound][v0.1]1.jpg -> an additional preview pic for the mod
              SM -> directory to include all the mods for the main game (this is same name as the gameID from the game profile file)
              SM\LST_INSERT -> all the files to mod lst files using afkhound lst insert format have to be placed into this directory
              SM\TGA_INSERT -> all the tga files that should to use the tga insert logic have to be placed into this directory
              SM\<anyfile>.pp -> this file will be directly copied into the game\data directory replacing any existing <anyfile>.pp
              SM\sm05_00 -> any file in this directory will be inserted into the pp file sm05_00.pp. If the pp does not yet exist it will be created. Any exisiting file with the same name will be overwritten.
              AG3\M_TEX --> (so far this function is AG3 only) you need to create subdirs in this directories with the same
              name as in the game's save\m_tex\<subdirs>. Any file you put into this <subdir> will be copied to the game
              save\m_tex\<subdir>. Any existing file will be replaced and a copy will be created in the backup to undo
              the mod
              AG3\M_COS --> (so far this function is AG3 only) you need to put files or create subdirs in this directory
              Any file you put into the M_COS directory will be copied to the game save\m_cos\ directory. Any file
              in the M_COS\<subdir> will be copied to the game save\m_cos\<subdir>. Missing directories will be created.
              Any existing file will be replaced and a copy will be created in the backup to undo the mod

              The main directories in the 7z file(s) to be used with Illusion Wizzard have to have the following names (in capital letters):
              (*) for schoomate: SM
              (*) for artificial girl 3: AG3
              (*) for Illusion Hako: HAKO
              (*) for HAKO Vignette: HAKO_VIGNETTE
              (*) for @Home Mate: AHM
              (*) for @Home Mate Photo: AHM_PHOTO
              (*) for Esk Mate: ESK_MATE
              (*) for Yuusha: YUUSHA
              (*) for Yuusha Botsu: YUUSHA_BOTSU


              general information
              (*) In one of the next versions, I intend to have full compatibility with mods made for SB3 wizzard, meaning illusion wizzard will also replace sb3 wizzard in the future
              (*) the new wizzard has been designed to work with future illusion games more or less out of the box (only new game parameter files) or with only minor adjustments to the code
              (*) illusion wizzard will no longer use integrated routines to decrypt pp files. This may sound like a step backwards, but it will save a lot of time for future games. Especially since Alamar is doing a far better job at writing pp file decrypters than I will ever be able to do myself.


              details on TGA_INSERT format and functionality
              Spoiler
              The preview files for the clothes are 256x384 pixels (tga format 32bit with alpha layer) and include 8 clothes in each file. 4 rows and 2 columns, esentially one "page" in schoolmate. In order to be able to replace a preview pic for only one of these 8 clothes we need to be able to replace a part of the tga file. This is basically what the TGA_INSERT functionality will do.
              Here are the basics: The tga file to be inserted needs to be exactly 128x96 pixels (tga format 32bit with alpha layer). It has to be placed in a folder named TGA_INSERT. The filename has to be [line number in lst file]<lstfilename>.tga - e.g. [0]cat_a01.tga. In the example, the wizzard will look in line 0 (first line) of the lst file cat_a01.lst and get the pp file and the tga file to be changed. From the line number the wizzard will know which part of the tga file to modify. And voila it will be possible to change only 1 preview pic for the clothes.

              readme file for version 0.4.5
              Spoiler
              Welcome to Illusion Wizzard
              Version is 0.4.5 beta, release date 31.10.2009

              ================================================== =========
              Before you use the tool, backup any files you want to mod.
              Don't say I didn't warn you!

              And read the damn readme file - that's what I wrote it for
              ================================================== =========


              purpose of the program and what is included in the distribution
              =================================================
              The program will insert mods into Illusion games. It comes with a graphical
              user interface. The following programs are included in this distribution:
              - Illusion_Wizzard.exe (the main program), Version 0.3d beta
              - SchoolMateDecrypt_to_Retail.exe (thanks to Alamar)
              - AG3Decrypt_to_AG3Demo.exe (thanks to Alamar)
              - 7zip.exe (command line version)
              - TextureMethods.dll (thanks to Alamar)
              - PPExtractor.exe (thanks to ScumSuckingPig)


              setting up the wizzard for first time use
              ===============================
              - extract all the files in the archive into a directoy of your choise. Please
              make sure that you keep the directory structure within the archive intact.
              - you need .net version 2.0 installed to run the gui application
              - for each new game, run wizzard once with the game profile to auto
              generate the directory structure for that game
              - open illusion_wizzard.exe and you will see all the mods in the mod list
              "window"


              how to add and apply a mod
              ==================
              - copy all the mods archives you want to use into the \mods subdirectory
              do not unpack/extract them, just copy the archive
              - select the game you want to mod in the game selection screen
              - click on any mod to see the preview picture and the description on the right
              side
              - click the apply button to apply the mod to your illusion game
              - if the mod has been applied already and for one reason or another you want
              to apply it again, use the "force mod" button. In that case the undo/backup files
              will not be changed.


              game profiles
              ============
              - the game profiles are stored in the sub directory \_general\game_profiles
              of the illusion wizzard installation path
              - the game profile defines where certain game files are stored, what functions
              are supported by the wizzard and so on
              - each game needs a well set up game profile to be supported by illusion wizzard
              - do not mess with the game profiles until you know exactly what you are doing

              ========
              - the options tab allows you to specify all kinds of settings for the wizzard

              will include more details when switched on
              - expert mode: will bypass some of the checks and allows to select more than
              one mod at a time and apply them all
              - time to switch to next picture: is used to change the intervall between changes
              from one preview picture to another - is only used when picture switching is
              not turned off
              - turn off picture switching: well this turns picture switching off
              - collision detection settings (only supported for the specific game are shown):
              -- ask: a box will appear and ask you any time a collison has been detected
              -- auto/overwrite: if there is a free slot, wizzard will use it, otherwise
              the mod overwrites the line specified in the lst file
              -- auto/ask: if there is a free slot, wizzard will use it, otherwise a box
              will appear and ask you what you want to do
              -- off/overwrite: no collision detection is done, each mod uses the line from
              its lst file
              - specify <xx> folder manually: allows you to specify a game or addon folder
              manually in case there is a problem with your registry settings

              structure of the mod archive files
              ==========================
              This is an important part for all modders out there. This section describes how the directory and file
              structure has to be set up within the mod archive so that the mod will work with sb3_insert.

              directory structure, asuming the mod file is named:
              [gameID][Clothes][All girls][test].7z

              gameID --> directory: all the files that have to go into the gameID pp-file directory have to be put there
              |- pp-filename1 --> subdirectory of gameID: all the files that are in this directory will be inserted into the pp file: pp-filename1.pp
              |- pp-filename2 --> subdirectory of gameID: all the files that are in this directory will be inserted into the pp file: pp-filename2.pp
              |- newfile.pp --> file in directory SB3: the file newfile.pp will be copied into the gameID pp-file directory
              |- LST_INSERT --> special subdirectory of gamID: Into this directory the modding files for lst have to go. One or several lst modfiles can be used. Filename can be anything you want to use.
              The lst modfile in this directoy will mod the lst file for gameID specified in the game profile
              |- TGA_INSERT --> (so far this function is schoolmate only) only tga files may be put into this directory. The tga file has to be exactly 128x96 pixels (tga format 32bit with alpha layer).
              The filename has to be [line number in lst file]<lstfilename>.tga - e.g. [0]cat_a01.tga. In the example, the wizzard will look in line 0 (first line) of the lst file cat_a01.lst and get the pp file and the tga file to be changed.
              From the line number the wizzard will know which part of the tga file to modify. And voila it will be possible to change only 1 preview pic for the clothes.
              |- M_TEX --> (so far this function is AG3 only) you need to create subdirs in this directories with the same
              name as in the game's save\m_tex\<subdirs>. Any file you put into this <subdir> will be copied to the game
              save\m_tex\<subdir>. Any existing file will be replaced and a copy will be created in the backup to undo
              the mod
              |- M_COS --> (so far this function is AG3 only) you need to put files or create subdirs in this directory
              Any file you put into the M_COS directory will be copied to the game save\m_cos\ directory. Any file
              in the M_COS\<subdir> will be copied to the game save\m_cos\<subdir>. Missing directories will be created.
              Any existing file will be replaced and a copy will be created in the backup to undo the mod

              addon1ID --> all the files that have to go into the addon1 pp-file directory have to be put there
              |- pp-filename1 --> --> subdirectory of addon1ID: all the files that are in this directory will be inserted into pp-filename1
              |- newfile.pp --> file in directory addon1ID: the file newfile.pp will be copied into the addon1ID pp-file directory
              |- LST_INSERT --> special subdirectory of addon1ID: Into this directory the modding files for lst have to go. One or several lst modfiles can be used. Filename can be anything you want to use.
              The lst modfile in this directoy will mod the lst file for gameID specified in the game profile

              [gameID][Clothes][All girls][test].txt --> description file not in any directory, has to have the same name as the modfile with extension .txt
              [gameID][Clothes][All girls][test].jpg --> preview pic not in any directory, has to have the same name as the modfile with extension .jpg
              [gameID][Clothes][All girls][test]1.jpg --> preview pic not in any directory, has to have the same name as the modfile +1 with extension .jpg
              [gameID][Clothes][All girls][test]2.jpg --> preview pic not in any directory, has to have the same name as the modfile +2 with extension .jpg


              known issues
              ===========
              - free disk space is not checked before a mod is applied, so make sure you got enugh free disk space on the drive you intstalled illusion wizzard
              - collision check is only supported for schoolmate so far
              - save patcher for schoolmate is not included
              - TGA_INSERT functionality for schoolmate will only work when standard file size tga are used (256x384 for 8x and 128x96 for 1x)


              what to expect in future releases
              ==========================
              - more bug fixes when bugs show up
              - support of multiple languages with language files
              - improved error detection and error handling

              To install Illusion wizzard, simply extract it to a directory of your choice. Please make sure you leave the directory structure unchanged.
              If you install it over an existing version, please make sure to check the options tab for the collision detection settings and switch them on.

              Happy modding to everybody.

              If you find any bugs or encounter any problems, let me know about it by pm.

              In order to create the necessary directory structure for each game, run the wizzard once for that game, then the directory structure will be created automatically. If your are using an earlier version of illusion wizzard, simply copy all the files from the archive into your install directory and replace all.

              If you are running 64bit windows, please replace the game profiles for schoomlate (sm.pro) and for AG3 (AG3.pro) in folder _general\game_profiles with the one in the zip archives: SM_64bit_v01b+.zip and AG3_64bit_v03c+.zip

              If you need the 800x600 illusion wizzard version, download the standard version and get the additional 800x600.exe from the link in this thread. Copy the 800x600.exe into the same folder where you put the standard exe. (not yet available as v0.4.5)

              download standard Wizzard v0.4.5 from here

                AG3 Decrypt + AG3 Savefile Parser + AG3 Subtitle Mod + SB3Utility + Other Stuff

                AG3Decrypt_v2.2_bin+src.rar
                Unpacks SB3, SM Figure/Trial/Retail, and AG3 MakeTrial/Welcome/Retail formats.
                Repacks to AG3 MakeTrial/Retail format.
                For AG3 save files (.js3wrd/.js3cmi/.js3csd/.js3csi/.js3up), it only xor's the file with a 32-byte code. It doesn't negate text bytes.

                Requires the .NET Framework v2.0 SP1 or later.

                Instructions
                Drag-n-drop .pp or AG3 save files to unpack/decrypt
                Drag-n-drop folders or .decrypt files to repack/encrypt
                Switch: '-q' for no prompt to exit

                Notes:
                - This isn't a pack with each destination format like v1.1. If you want to do cross-game conversions, you can use SB3Utility v0.6 Pre8 and later. If you really want a pack, PM me and I'll make one if there's popular demand.
                - You can just use AG3Decrypt v1.1 and don't need v2.0 if you're only using it with .pp files.

                v2.2 - Fixed typo "Unpacking SM MakeTrial..." to "Unpacking AG3 MakeTrial...". Fixed "#define origorder" in source code (only affects debugging)
                v2.1 - Added '-q' switch for no prompt to exit for script automation
                v2.0 - Initial version

                AG3SaveParser_v0.2_bin+src.rar
                This parses .js3wrd & .js3csd files and outputs them to .txt files. This is to help programmers figure out the file structures.

                Requires the .NET Framework v2.0 SP1 or later.

                Instructions
                Drag-n-drop one or more files to it, and it'll create a .txt file for each one.

                v0.2 - Added file offsets to the output
                v0.1 - Initial version

                AG3 Subtitle Mod & Translation Thread
                This shows subtitles when the girls speak.

                SB3Utility v0.7.x and other versions
                Moved to the SB3Utility Releases and Discussion thread.

                Other Stuff
                JS3_Play.exe Disassembly Notes
                JS3 Cheat Engine Table
                AG3 Trainer v0.3 (abandoned)

                  Official English Launcher

                  Current version: Release 3.5 for the basic game and Release 4.3 for AG3 Plus

                  Get the launcher for AG3 Plus here.

                  Get the launcher the basic game here.

                  Last Update: 2008-09-26

                  Release 3 is meant exclusively for version 1.03 of Illusion's Artificial Girl 3.

                  If you use an older or newer version, it might not work as intended. Get the patch to update AG3 to v1.03 here.

                  Features:
                  • Fully translated(*) game launcher and Character Maker.
                  • DVD/Region Check removed.(1)
                  • Unlimited number of traits.(2) Childhood friend and Blood related were left mutually exclusive to avoid ingame problems.
                  • You can manually enter values from -999 up to 9999 in the Character Maker (by typing them in those little boxes beside the sliders).(3)
                  • You now can enter player names in latin characters in order to create new worlds without language support for Japanese.(2)
                  • Easy to translate in other languages. Working tabs with up to 63 characters per string.


                  To get a fully translated game, you'll also need an english interface. Get one here.

                  If you haven't installed Illusion Wizzard yet, get it from the link above. You'll need it in order to translate the js3_00_00_00.pp file, since I won't include a pre-made one any longer.

                  TheShadow's FAQ got a very detailled description of the installation process.
                  
                     http://theshadow.8tt.org/files/ag3/faq/index.htm
                  
                  Go there, read it and follow his instructions. You'll also find a mirror of the
                  patch there that you need to update the game to version 1.03, if the link below
                  doesn't work (sometimes Illusion redirects you to Yahoo Japan).
                  
                     http://www.illusion.jp/support/title/js3_sp_003.exe
                  
                  If you haven't installed the update in the process of following TheShadow's
                  tutorial, here is how it's done:
                  
                  You'll probably need support for Japanese to install the patch. Read the FAQ or
                  Wiki (technical help) on how to do this. If everything is set up:
                  
                  1.) Start "js3_sp_003.exe" and decompress the contents of this self-exctracting
                      archive to some temporary folder.
                  
                  2.) Go there and start "filecopy.exe"
                  
                  3.) Click the left button.
                  
                  4.) Wait until the progress bar reaches 100%.
                  
                  5.) Click the right button.
                  
                  Done! Easy, wasn't it?
                  
                  After you installed the patch, you won't need asian language support any longer.
                  With the files supplied in this archive, AG3 should run on any system.
                  
                  
                  In any case, DO NOT mail/PM me about installation issues. It's not my job to
                  get your game running but to make it readable. Well, actually it's not my job
                  either but my hobby. So better treat me nice(*).
                  
                  *) BTW My reputation bar isn't maxed out yet. *hint*hint* (**)
                  
                  **) That means to click on this little icon (the 2nd from the right, with the
                      check mark and the cross) on top of each post, click on "approve" and type

                      "I'll name my new-born son Hentaijin!" or "Excuse my vulgarity. But I want
                      your cock!" (only female cos-players with attached photo! ;)

                  Done? Okay! Let's go on...
                  
                  If you haven't installed darkhound's Illusion Wizard yet, do it now. (Be aware
                  that you need the .NET framework to run it. The wizard's ReadMe will tell you,
                  which version(s) you need.)
                  
                  Now to the last act...
                  
                  HINT: If you screwed somewhere in the installation process and have japanese
                        characters in your game path, use the RegFixer to set your registry to
                        English. Else the game won't run without language support for Japanese.
                  
                  Let's assume that you've installed the game to "C:\illusion\AG3":
                  
                  1.) unpack this archive in some temporary folder
                  
                  2.) move "AG3_Make.exe" and "AG3_Play.exe" to "C:\illusion\AG3" and
                      make some short-cuts to your desktop for them
                  
                  3.) move "[AG3][general][English Translation][Hentaijin][v1.03.5].7z" to the
                      wizard's \mods\ folder
                  
                  4.) start the wizard and apply the mod above
                  
                  5.) now you can delete the temporary folder, or just keep it for sentimental
                      reasons ;)
                  
                  6.) read the Wiki on how to get started
                  
                  
                  To get a fully translated game you'll also need a translation for the in-game
                  GUI and some location icons. You can get both at the mod release thread.
                  
                  Just for the case you wonder, why I called this package "English Translation"
                  then: When I called it "English Launcher", several people started to translate
                  the Character Maker because they figured, launcher would only mean Play.exe. ;)
                  
                  
                  
                  /// Troubleshooting ////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////
                  
                  Q: I get an "Game isn't properly installed. Use the RegFixer." error.
                  
                  A: Download the RegFixer from the link below and tell it to set your
                     installation to "English".
                     
                     http://www.hongfire.com/forum/downloads.php?do=file&id=126
                  
                  
                  
                  Q: I get can hear no sound in the game at all.
                  
                  A: Go to [Configuration] -> [Game Effects] and set "3D Sound Quality" to "Off".
                  
                  
                  
                  Q: Character Maker crashes whenever I try to save a girl.
                  
                  A: This problem might be caused by other installed mods that use huge textures
                     (e.g. 2048x2048).
                  
                  
                  
                  Q: The girls in the Character Maker all have no hair.
                  
                  A: The baldy woman phenomenom is caused by a version conflict. Either you didn't
                     update AG3 to the required version, or you are using the wrong release of the
                     launcher. This scares the girls so much that they lose all their hair... ;)
                     Seriously, make a clean new install of AG3, update it to the required version
                     (find out which, in the "Installing the Game" section) and finally install
                     the launcher.
                  
                  
                  
                  Q: I updated AG3 to version x.xx and now all the buttons in Character Maker
                     reverted back to Japanese.
                  
                  A: Serves you right! :P Seriously, what did you expect? After all my warnings to
                     use this laucher only with the version it is intended for, it was a really,
                     really stupid idea to update at this time.
                     Well, usually you can get it to work again, if you re-apply the pp file trans-
                     lation ([AG3][general][English Translation][Hentaijin][vX.XX].7z). But that's
                     no final solution. It's not even guaranteed to work in every case. Just wait
                     until I finished the translation of the version you updated to. Then do the
                     update again and install the correct launcher after that. Oh, and promise to
                     follow Hentaijin's directions in the future. ;)
                  
                  
                  
                  Q: I can't do anything in the Character Maker, because I don't see this or that
                     button.
                  
                  A: Make sure that the screen resolution of your desktop is set to at least
                     1024x768. (For Release 0 to 2 of the launcher you actually needed an even
                     higher screen resolution.)
                  
                  
                  
                  Q: I made sure, my desktop's screen resolution is 1024x768 or higher but the
                     dialogs of Character Maker are still too big to fit the screen.
                  
                  A: There are a few things you could try:
                  
                     a) Make sure, your \WINDOWS\Fonts\ folder is hosting a file called
                        "TAHOMA.TTF". If it isn't, get this font somewhere off the web.
                  
                     b) Make sure, your DPI setting is set to 96dpi. (right-click on an empty
                        area of your desktop ->Properties->Settings->Advanced->General)
                  
                     c) Make sure, your font size is set to Normal. (right-click on an empty
                        area of your desktop ->Properties->Display Properties)
                  
                  
                  
                  Q: I get an error message with nothing but question marks as text.
                  
                  A: Read the Wiki on how to install support for Japanese on your system. If you
                     have everything set up, take a screenshot of the pop-up and send it attached
                     to an e-mail to <ag3modder@yahoo.com>. Also include at least the "Essential
                     Information" part of "system_info.txt" (start either AG3_Make.exe or 
                     AG3_Play.exe, click [System Information] and then [Save System Info]).
                  
                     Thanks in advance for your help to improve the launcher.
                  
                  
                  
                  Q: I get an error message consisting of "strange letters".
                  
                  A: Your system is probably already set to Japanese. Just make sure, it isn NOT
                     set to Chinese or Korean and follow the directions given in the paragraph
                     above.
                  
                  
                  
                  Didn't find a solution for your problem here? Then follow the instructions given
                  below:
                  
                  o  Make sure, you got AG3 updated to the required version. See the section about
                     installing the game to know which one that would be.
                  
                  o  Make sure, your sytem is up to AG3's minimum requirements. (Start either
                     AG3_Make.exe or AG3_Play.exe and click [System Information].)
                  
                  o  Run TheShadows's RegFixer and change your registry to "English".
                  
                  o  If your problems started after installing another mod, try to remove this
                     mod and see if this solves the issue.
                  
                  If nothing of the above could fix your problem, send me a copy of your 
                  "system_info.txt" (start either AG3_Make.exe or AG3_Play.exe and click
                  [System Information], then [Save System Info]) and a detailled description
                  of your problem by PM or email.

                  o  Starting with version 1.03, the mouse wheel can be emulated by pressing the
                     [+] and [-] key on the numeric key pad. Emulating has the advantage, that the
                     cursor doesn't need to be in mushroom-shape for the wheel to take effect.
                  
                  
                  
                  /// Address (Honorifics) ///////////////////////////////////////////////////////
                  
                  For kuropon and others interested in Nippon's culture, I've included a few notes
                  regarding the name-suffixes in the [Profile] tab of Character Maker...
                  
                  
                  -chan:
                  
                  This suffix is kind of a diminutive, like calling someone Charly instead of
                  Charles. Adults use it to address children, children to address their parents
                  or relatives, and lovers to address their darling. The C-Type personality is
                  literally asking for this suffix. ;)
                  
                  -kun:
                  
                  This suffix is used under pals of the same age. If a girl uses this, it marks
                  her as tomboy. The correct choice for the K-Type personality, I guess.
                  
                  -san:
                  
                  This is the normal polite name-suffix. It can be translated as "Mister".
                  
                  -sama:
                  
                  Even more polite than -san, could be probably translated as "Sir".
                  
                  (o-)nii(-chan/-san/-sama): (Big) Brother
                  
                  The "nii"-family refers to one's older brother. It's also used to address
                  slightly older men that are no blood relatives.
                  If you've set the [Brother complex] trait, you should probably use this
                  address in order to get the desired effect.
                  
                  sempai: Senior
                  
                  Sempai is used in school or at work to address usually older classmates or
                  colleagues who entered the facility earlier than you and are therefore
                  superior. At least in Japan. ;)
                  
                  go-shujin-sama: Husband
                  
                  An ultra-polite address for one's husband. According to the Wiki it's also used
                  by maids to address the person they're serving and by slaves to address their
                  master. So it might be the perfect choice for the M-Type personality.
                  
                  masutaa: Master
                  
                  That's actually the english word "Master". It's used to address the proprietor
                  or manager of a bar, for example.
                  
                  shishou: Coach
                  
                  The literal meaning is roughly the same as "sensei", but it's specifically used
                  to refer to one's martial arts teacher or a sumo coach who owns his stable. The
                  right choice for the K-Type personality.
                  
                  sensei: Teacher
                  
                  Beside "-san" this is certainly the best known honorific in the western world.
                  It refers to teachers in the widest sense of the word.
                  
                  
                  
                  /// List of "allowed" Names ////////////////////////////////////////////////////
                  
                  If you enter one of the following names in ALL-UPPER-CASE (!) as player name,
                  the girls will call you that way, if you've set the address accordingly (e.g.
                  if you set the girl's address to "-chan" and enter "NOBU" as player name, she
                  will call you "Nobu-chan"; it will *not* work, if you enter "Nobu", "nobu" or
                  "nObU" as player name; I hope, you got the idea ;).

                  2008-01-15 Release 3.5: minor update to include the "hiragana-hack"
                  
                  add: thanks to Fuzzier (and lovidio, who was the first to implement this idea)
                       you now can enter normal latin letters for the player name; no need for
                       pre-made save files any longer
                       since I included a translated association list, you can still get the names
                       recognized by the game to work, by entering them in Hepburn roumaji (see
                       the section about "allowed" names)
                  fix: found two fonts that weren't translated to TAHOMA yet; heck, how many more
                       different spellings of "MS Gothic" are there? :rolleyes:
                  add: finally included darkhound's clothing slots; to keep my life simple, they
                       are ain't filled yet though :P
                  fix: because many (including me) didn't really like the increased slider range,
                       I dropped this feature; those who *did* like it, will find a patch to
                       enable it again on the launcher's DL page
                  add: added more confirmed "troubleshoots" to the ReadMe and rearranged the
                       "layout"
                  
                  2007-12-23 Release 3.02: another fix :eek:
                  
                  fix: realized that I used backslashes in the URL that is inserted in the
                       description field if left empty; Doh!
                  fix: if you opened a js3cmi file with [Load Existing], out-of-range values would
                       be capped to the 0-100 range; Fuzzier fixed that (rep him!)
                  
                  
                  2007-12-22 Release 3.01: just a quick fix
                  
                  fix: realized (unfortunately too late), that I redirected all occurences of the
                       M/A-Type string, but overlooked the crucial ones; Doh!
                       @NeonSamurai: where are you, when I need you most? ;)
                  
                  
                  2007-12-21 Release 3: update for AG3 v1.03
                  
                  Starting from this release, I won't include a .pp file any longer. You'll get
                  the translated .lst/.bmp file(s) in Illusion Wizzard format instead.
                  
                  add: completely overhauled all dialogs in Character Maker, to make them smaller
                       (for those with low screen resolutions), better looking, more functional
                       and easier to mod (i.e. wider buttons for longer translations)
                  add: noped out the range check for the manual inputs to increase the limits even
                       further; not really useful but, hey, it sounds good in the ads ;)
                  add: marked a continuous 4KB block in AG3_Play.exe for Alamar's sub-title mod
                       (@Alamar: search for MOD-SPACE)
                  add: made some additions to the ReadMe.TxT; if you find typos, errors, mis-
                       informations or have the feeling I forgot to include something important,
                       send me a PM/e-mail, please
                  
                  
                  2007-12-09 Release 2: update for AG3 v1.02
                  
                  Had to start from scratch because Illusion chose to throw out an update, one
                  day after I finally finished Release 1. Thank you very much... *censored*
                  
                  add: on request of darkhound, I included a folder containing only those lst
                       files, that are actually affected by my translation; that's for those,
                       who want to manually apply the patch; no instructions though, if you
                       don't know what to do with, leave them alone!
                  add: I included a save file, for those unable to enter hiragana
                  
                  
                  2007-12-05 Release 1: the real deal (more updates might follow though ;)
                  
                  add: resized/rearranged most dialogs of the Character Maker
                  add: translated all the stuff you can see and all the message boxes that
                       might pop up in daily use; if you find something untranslated, send
                       me a PM, please
                  add: translated most error messages you are likely to see at all
                  add: redirected a lot of strings that were only patched "in-place" before
                  add: had to actually rewrite some program code to make it possible to give the
                       tabs in the Character Maker meaningful names; a little fan service for all
                       fellow translators
                  add: found the button text for A-type and M-type personality, which are hard-
                       coded in the executable instead of being in the lst-files like the others
                  fix: disabled region check; thnx to TheShadow
                  fix: the traits does now actually move transfere to the js3csd; thnx to Fuzzier
                  
                  
                  2007-11-30 Release 0: quick basic hack for the impatient
                  
                  This is a basic translation of all the stuff you can see. There are still lots
                  of untranslated error messages, some dialogs may look ugly and some wordings
                  sound awkward (for technical reasons (most of the time ;)). This will be fixed
                  in later releases.
                  
                  
                  2007-11-29 Pre-release: for the extremely impatient
                  
                  Just a quick translation of most stuff that was already in the trial version, so
                  you could create characters without having to look up the meaning of the traits.

                      Balls with translated texts.
                      Decrypt js3_00_04_00.pp, replace and encrypt again. You know the drills.

                      Edit2:
                      - Noob manual -
                      Jep, it's TGA image files in there. One needs to unpack js3_00_04_00.pp through dragging it on AG3Decrypt_to_MakeTrial-Retail.exe (which you can find in this thread), copy the TGA files from the mod into the so created folder, and repack this folder via dragging it on AG3Decrypt_to_MakeTrial-Retail.exe again.
                      But make sure to rename your original js3_00_04_00.pp to something like js3_00_04_00.old as a backup, before repacking, otherwise you loose your original *.pp
                      I'm not giving support for the mod. If it doesn't work anymore with future AG3 patches from Illusion, find out what's broken and learn how to fix it.

                          Artificial Girl 3 Database Client

                          Artificial Girl 3 Database
                          Public Release


                          It's been a very long time since I stopped development on the AG3DBC. I worked so hard on it with many other talented HF members. I've received a lot of emails over the years about problems with the client and feel bad that I never replied to any of them. My life has changed so much since I last updated it that there has been no time or desire to keep the project up to date.

                          This is why I've finally decided to put aside some time and release the AG3DB to the public! I'm sure with all the talent here in this great community that some group will pick up where I left off and make the AG3DB better than anyone could ever of imagined!

                          This release contains the entire dump of the AG3DB including database backup, uploaded characters and the AG3DBC source code

                          Torrent contents
                          chars/ -> folders of each AG3DB user and all their uploaded characters (NOTE: many folders are empty)
                          AG3DBC.7z -> Artificial Girl 3 Database Client source code (written in VB.NET)
                          ag3_db_dump.7z -> MySQL database backup of the entire AG3DB (NOTE: no BLOB data is stored in the database)

                          Torrent download
                          HongFire discussion thread

                          PLEASE DO NOT CONTACT DILI ABOUT ANYTHING RELATED TO THE AG3DBC
                          I am no longer involved with this project and will likely not respond

                          Thanks to all who BETA tested:

                            Gigosaga's Mods (New Release!)

                            ===Gigosaga's Mods===
                            I've been working on multiple mods and they are all starting to come together for release. Some of them are dependent on others for best results so they are on hold or will not be released until the other is. I am working very hard on them so expect releases soon, one after the other.

                            I set out to make high quality mods with every release and do extensive testing and methodology experiments to find what works best within my abilities so I do take longer to release. My level of experience and skill is also lower than the vets so I must make up for that with time investment.

                            I hope to meet your quality expectations in a community full of highly talented modders.

                            Thank you for trying my mods out! If you like them, please provide Rep, something I try to collect for some strange reason. =)


                            --- Released Mods ---
                            Complete Uncensored Mod *New Release*- [AG3][Privates][Uncen Privates][v1.00][gigosaga] is a complete uncensored mod that includes the vagina, anal and pubic areas. Although with great delays, I finished it and decided to release it for the sake of having completed it. It was an educational process and several people have provided me with a help along to way. Hopefully, next game I will be able to provide a quality mod in a timely manner when I do not have computer problems.

                            Uncensored Pubic Hair & Textures Set *Has been combined with the Complete Uncensored Mod* - Set1 is now released! It contains 4 of 7 planned textures in 512x512 resolution so you get a good amount of details. You can get the mod in the mod release post which also contains all changes, updates, and installation instructions in the readme. The previews can be found below, images 1-4 on the default body. I hope you enjoy it and thank you for using them.
                            + Some improvements to expect from next update: Additional work towards balancing detail and blending to allow for increased visual quality up close. On a 512x512 texture, the actual hair is usually on about a 270x200 pixel area, so the area I have to work with is still somewhat more limited than it sounds when speaking of texture size. The rest of the texture covers the mesh the hair is resting on.


                            Enjoy.

                              I take no credit for this application. Just one of the useful apps I've found searching. Its all in japanese but its pretty much just choosing the traits you want to apply, just like you do at creation, after you open the character file. Also you can apply more than 3. It also does not reset the character's affection.

                              As a side note, I'm pretty sure there are others aware of the sites I browse but among these two there are constant updates of any mods, apps, and newly created textures. Be sure to check them out.
