    Still one final micro issue that'll be solved tomorrow evening and I'm giving the prologue a green light!
    As long as you don't mind borked english and placeholder graphics, you just might enjoy yourselves :shittydog:

    So this means that it'll just be the Prologue that will be in English? If so, will you be able to install subsequent patches with the same save game?

    The patch itself is quite small in size (roughly a thousand files though) and updating it won't break your saves.
    Everything is translated, but I've only finished checking the prologue - the rest is still a bit raw and probably buggy!

    And here we go!
    https://www.mediafire.com/file/49k1ndab3no76dc/Arc011217.rar (pass: Codex2017)
    Just unzip everything in the install folder (overwriting ArcExe.exe) and you're good to go. Everything in the prologue should work, except for these:
    -Worldmap placeholder text - you'll see what I mean :oops:
    -I've replayed the opening just after uploading the patch and I've already seen some mistakes I missed the first time (symbolizing, not symbolising, you fool :argh:)
    -Character names in the menu are placeholders too
    -Books and other documents are still in japanese for some reason
    -Lines end abruptly. That's an edition problem I'll deal with once everything else is done

    Everything from Act 1 to the Ending IS translated and in the patch, but you can expect some bugs, nonsense and crashes.

    If you encounter crashes or game-breaking bugs, do tell me!

    Finally. I'm tired of watching Sizzle getting his balls stomped before encountering that friggin' crash.

    Was having a nice time getting into this, then experienced a horrible bug in the port city where every building you enter, the screen turns completely white. You can still "move" around, but you can't see anything.

    Seems like a really unique game that I can't wait to get into properly, but I might have to wait a little while for some of the bugs to be sorted and the translation to be edited a little further. Thanks again for all your work, Helly. Can't wait to see this project continue.

    Unless of course the bug is a problem with the game itself and not the translation patch, in which case I am fucked.

    My latest update might have broken something, because Tynie's buildings used to work. I'll check it out tonight...

    Well, I replayed the act from a previous savepoint and didn't have any white screens... (but I did find several mistakes I thought I had corrected :-/)
    Did you have any error message or anything? Or did you do anything special in particular before?
    Also, what do you use to play the game? I launch it with D3DWindower.
    EDIT: Well, now I have them too after starting a new game. What the heck :-/ It's gone after saving and reloading, though...

    EDIT2: Alright, I've done more testing: you'll have to do at least one Save & Reload in Ragnie (the first town) before leaving and it should be enough to prevent the game from crashing indoors later. I'll look for an explanation if it happens again later on.

    EDIT3:Also, here's an updated version of the patch:

    Helly, I finally had some time to play back up to where I was again. Looks like the bug is fixed! I can see now when I enter buildings in Tynie.

    I will however continue waiting until the translation is a little closer to being finished. This doesn't seem like the type of game I would replay much, so I figure it should be in the best state for my playthrough.

    Having interest for some years in this game, and now I can finally play it. First, I want to thank you Helly for your efforts on translating it.
    If you want some help with the playtesting, I can help. Played a little using the "Arc021217.rar" patch. So far, only one crash at Ragnie's Inn, speaking with Hans, after collecting all the money to Sizz's father. He speaks about the man that first entered Sizz father's shop and the game crashes. Changing to japanese passes the dialogue.

    After this dialogue, Sizz says Thanks Hans and the game crashes.
