Temporary Fixes for 4.0 (Updated)

***This fix is unnecessary for versions after 4.0***

http://www.mediafire.com/download.php?jkmvyyitcyt

Stick this in after the main patch. It should fix most of the crashing problems.

The ones it doesn't (such as the crash when starting the game) are caused by not having your system in Japanese locale. You can avoid it for now by changing your system locale to Japanese or using applocale.

Ok, here's a new fix. I think this should take care of everything up until now, even the locale problem. If you find something that isn't fixed please post it here. Assuming there isn't anything devastating, I'll put out a 4.1 on the 16th.

  1. I'm still crashing at Last episode.
    It says something like "lastep2.ks"

  2. I need something more specific if you can. Like a cap of the error and when exactly it happens.

  4. It happens at the end of the recap of the final part of the fate scenario.

  5. Never mind, i somehow forgot to rename the fix "patch8.xp3"

    ReplyDelete
  6. I'm trying to extract some music from your patch. But the tools that I used to extract other files (bgm.xp3, fgimage.xp3, etc) does not really work. Can u tell me how to get those files from ur patch?

    Btw, thanx for your work

  8. Saber VS. Sasaki Koujiro Crash:

    http://img402.imageshack.us/img402/2518/sabervssasakikoujiro.png

    last line before crash:
    "Saber must have figured out that the small opening is the blind spot of the technique"

    Quickfix: Don't fast forward, it seems to work properly if you don't fast forward. Oddly enough, not the same case as the Last Episode error. Odd too since the Assassin scene I ctrl-ed thru without crashing, while this scene can't be ctrl-ed thru.

    -----------------------------------
    i tested the rest of the save files, and it seems to run properly, dunno abt the rest of the game.

    And is there a way to add the BGM back to the title screen?

    ReplyDelete
  9. forget the comment abt the BGM in the title screen ^^"

    ReplyDelete
  10. Chass: That's one of the bugs I mentioned in the original post. It only crashes if you're skipping right after that line.


    In about 8 hours I'm going to take my computer out of Japanese locale and try to figure out what's going on.

    ReplyDelete
  11. lol okay, yea, ic...I was under the impression that Assassin was Hassan XD

    ReplyDelete
  12. I've started a re-read of the fate scenario so I'll post glitches and such as i go along.

    At the start of the game when both Shirou and Sakura says "Itadakimasu"
    the voices cuts off at the end.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Waku Waku,in a future update this patch will be working without need to set system to japanese?

    ReplyDelete
  14. Applocale will work too (which is a hell of a lot easier than changing your computer to Japanese locale every time you want to play FSN).

    ReplyDelete
  15. I've been using nothing but Japanese as my non-unicode language (btw guys, that's a completely different thing from a locale, don't get it wrong...) for years, and switched my current computer over to it as soon as I got it. It's not for Fate, obviously, but there are just too many things I run that are non-unicode Japanese, and there are almost zero reasons to ever have English set as my language for non-unicode programs (since ANY language in non-unicode can run an English program already), the only reasons being for the occasional asinine program written by some fag who thinks the non-unicode language variable is what you're supposed to use for the locale (when it's not) and has the entire program set its text in Japanese because of it (that's a completely separate setting in the OS! come on! why are so many people who don't know shit about computers trying to use cookie-cutter helper apps to make programs and thinking that somehow makes them a programmer these days?! *< angry because he's a computer engineer and such things are naturally annoying due to that*).

  16. Very epic, Thanks a TON for these. It's interesting seeing new life in this, my favorite Eroge. I'm glad you're still working on it, and keep up the good work.

  17. Unfortunately,my country version of Windows XP OS don't come with Japanese language as default,and installation disc is needed to put on extra languages,but I don't have this disc.But I'm just asking because the default patch of Mirror Moon and RNpatch v3.2 works well even with non-japanese settings.

    ReplyDelete
  18. ^ leaving out that mirrormoon has nothing to do with this project, why don't u just use applocale in the meantime?

    ReplyDelete
  19. Fifth day, fate route, Morning:
    when both Sakura and Rin greets Taiga the voices cuts off at the end.
    this also happened at one point at the start of the game so i guess it happens each time two characters speak at the same time.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Sorry bout this,but I have some noobish questions:
    1)To use the fix,do I have to rename in the same fashion as the patch?Like,''patch#.xp3''?
    2)I've cleared all endings+Tiger Dojos+Last Episode.There's the new title screen with swords and all,but there's no sound on the title.Is it supposed to be like this?
    Oh,and thanks for your hard work :)

    ReplyDelete
  21. Awww, no ero-replacement? Guess there goes the idea of a christmas present for my sister...

    ReplyDelete
  22. The locale problem has been fixed, but I can't make a simple patch to correct so once I get the other bugs fixed expect a 4.1.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Waku, you are my hero. Yet I have a few concerns and questions if you can help. :(
    1. How do we apply this Fix? What do we name it.

    2. I am getting that lastep error too. (right before it shows the archer CG with saberVSberserker in the Graveyard) yet I believe it is related to that fix, once I can apply it correctly I think it will be fine. I mean, a window in Japanese comes up with an OK button, yet I can still access the game menu and load from something else etc. Not what I would call a game crash.

    3. So, your patches and the mirror-moon patches shouldn't conflict or anything, right? I had their full English version before I put in your realta nua stuff.

    4. Will you be making any plans to add any new videos to the game? Aren't there some Realta Nua exclusives?

    5. Lets say that for any reason we had to take your patch out because of some permanent error (hypothetically), could we simply just yoink out the patch we named and it would be as it was before we applied it?

    Either way, thanks a ton for this. It is awesome to have the new music and cgs, as it really adds to the experience. You've worked really hard on this; anyone can tell that. Keep up the good works.

    ReplyDelete
  24. There's something wrong with Shirou's flashback of Sakura. The CGs aren't showing properly in Heaven's Feel, scene "Conclusion - All the good in this life".

    It looks like this:
    http://img197.imageshack.us/img197/5659/rn4bug1309.png

    I tried it in windowed and fullscreen mode.

    ReplyDelete
  25. bargadiel:
    1. You apply it like you applied the patch. Name it the next number.

    2. Before the Archer CG? Can you please explain in detail and possibly post a screenshot? I haven't heard about this one yet.

    3. They do conflict, actually. Any shared files are loaded from the patch with the highest number. If you put the mirror moon patch higher than mine, mine won't do anything. But you still need it.

    4. bioniclearchiver made a patch for that if you want it, but be warned it conflicts with my patch. If you have his is higher, you won't get the Archer graveyard CG. If mine is higher, you won't see the video. I might add them to my patch eventually.

    5. Yes.

  27. Nevermind, I wasn't using the fix right. Didn't realize that I had to name it patch# too.

    ReplyDelete
  28. So about the Archer CG problem? Is that fine?

    ReplyDelete
  29. For the fewest error, put the patch right after the mirrormoon patch (exactly patch4.xp3) and let all the non-mirrormoon ones follow them. I fixed the opening-crash error with that method.

    ReplyDelete
  30. anyway, why hasn't the fake-last-episode error be fixed yet?

    ReplyDelete
  31. The Archer Graveyard problem is fixed. Putting in the fix patch correctly solved the problem. It also fixed the issue with the last episode. No need to screenshot it now unless you want me to.

    Another question, just to be sure. The patch that is split into two parts, do we just extract the first one or do we extract both and name them different patch numbers? I did the latter just to be sure, but didn't know exactly how it would handle it. From my experience with .rar files I would say that it extracts both.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Bargadiel here,

    Found a new error. Takes place when Rin, Shirou, and Saber confront Archer after Caster's death in UBW. It starts right when the CG of Rin with the swords around her is shown. It's different than the previous errors in that once you click OK, it actually shows you the new CG. It's just that you have to load/return to menu since text has stopped.

    http://s59.photobucket.com/albums/g293/Bargadiel/?action=view&current=Error1.jpg

    There's the link. I'll be on the lookout for more as I explore all of the new stuffs.

    ReplyDelete
  33. @Grant> That scene WFM.
    @Waku Waku> About Fake Lase Episode: Not sure, but could be referring to the Last Episode showing up on a clean file for people?

    ReplyDelete
  34. @Xerblade
    I wouldn't be surprised if it only affected me, but maybe Waku will get an idea from the image. lol my knowledge of MoonRunes is still in development.

    @Waku, was the music added in a previous Realta Nua patch or is it new to this one? It plays Burst Up for example, during the Saber VS Berserker Graveyard Fight. I really don't know if I noticed it before this or not.

    ReplyDelete
  35. The Rin CG problem has been fixed. It's actually the same problem as the Assassin scenes, which I also managed to fix, only unintentional. There's also one in Sparks Liner High, so don't skip through that right now either.

    Last Episode at the start has been fixed as well.

    Every bug brought to my attention so far has been fixed, but I'm going to wait until the 16 to release 4.1 to make sure I can be online a decent time just in case.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Hm...I'l ask again:Is it really supposed to be no music in the all-clear title screen?Somenone,please answer >_<

    ReplyDelete
  37. Yes, it's supposed to be like that. I've double checked it on the PS2 version myself.

    Ideally it's not that big of a deal, since you only have that title from when you finish ending 5 to when you finish Last Episode. Most people will only see it 1 or 2 times.

    ReplyDelete
  38. *Saeki*, go through Last Episode again (you can skip through if you want), since the previous patch version didn't count it as having been viewed after you've seen it (it does now, so you will need to see it again for it to count), and you shouldn't have any complaints anymore, since the true "All Clear" title screen should appear after that. ^_^

    ReplyDelete
  39. There are a few CG images I can't manage to unlock, one appears it is from the Last Episode? ...It's between a few of the Saber images while shes in the field. It has me baffled!

    ReplyDelete
  40. Yes, that one, as well as the Saber wiping Ilya's cheek CGs, won't appear for me in the gallery either even after doing a speed run though the whole game.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Thx for the replies ^-^
    Btw,I noticed another thing,but I dunno if it's just with me.On the final fight of Saber against Gilgamesh(Fate Route),when EA sound effect starts(it's the effect that sounds like a drill),the effect doesn't stop when it should,it keep going on.

    ReplyDelete
  42. I fixed the Ilya problem, but didn't know about the Last Episode CG. Can someone post a shot of their gallery or just tell me the location?

  44. Here is thegallery screenshot from the Last Episode, with the mystery image.

    http://i59.photobucket.com/albums/g293/Bargadiel/gall1.jpg

    And another image just a page before it. It has it's own page so I found it odd. Any ideas?

  45. Not even going to bother re-deleting last comment. Copypaste has failed me.

    But to clarify, so far most or all of the errors are caused by skipping through text using control or GoToNext? Reading the game normally produces little to no errors?

    ReplyDelete
  46. The one with it's own page is in the original PC version. You unlock it by collecting all of the Tiger Stamps.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Is Last Episode supposed to be unlocked as soon as the patch is applied? My only save is still only on the VERY first day after the Prologue finishes, and the title screen looks completely different now (http://bit.ly/5IVTUv) from what it was before (a blue one like this http://bit.ly/5X7F3u)

    I would've thought that you would only get to do Last Episode after getting all three endings, like Tsukihime's Eclipse after all nine endings.

    ReplyDelete
  48. It wasn't supposed to be unlocked, but it is for right now.

    ReplyDelete
  49. i installed the fix but the "Last Episode" choice still appear: http://cid-895dfe623fb2e7dd.skydrive.live.com/self.aspx/Public/1.bmp
    and when I click, this message appear:
    http://cid-895dfe623fb2e7dd.skydrive.live.com/self.aspx/Public/2.bmp

    ReplyDelete
  50. That's still the locale problem. Messing with the patch order didn't fix it, it just stopped the crash when the game starts.

    ReplyDelete
  51. how should i do to fix it?
    btw, where are all the images in the "another" gallery ?

    ReplyDelete
  52. That's part of the locale thing too. Download the new fix, it should... Fix it.

    ReplyDelete
  53. In Heaven's Feel scene "7th day: Return Home: Living Room - Temptation", the CG for Shirou and Sakura does not display during the dialogue.

    This CG:
    http://img204.imageshack.us/img204/3460/cgsak.jpg

    ReplyDelete
  54. aglaia114: That CG isn't supposed to appear for that scene to begin with. It never has. It only appears for the scene "7th day: Return Home: Living Room - Temptation (Afternoon)". The scene you're talking about (the non-afternoon one) appears if you choose when talking to Ilya "As an apology, I'll do anything she says." If you make either different choice for Ilya (one of which is a guaranteed Bad End later) or if you didn't meet Ilya to begin with, you get the Afternoon version which DOES have the CG.

    In other words, that isn't a problem with this patch, or anything for that matter. Type-Moon simply didn't draw a different version of that CG for the different possible time of day.

  55. New fix. Changed the name of an image and forgot to actually put it in there...

  57. I dunno if its supposed to be not fixed yet but Last Episode still shows up right away even with the New fix. Just wondering if thats supposed to not be fixed yet.

    ReplyDelete
  58. Does this fix have to be used in addition to the prior fix, or do I get rid of that one, and just use this one?

    ReplyDelete
  59. Oops, totally forgot to add the title fix in. Try it now.

    ReplyDelete
  60. Ah...Jeez.Another error:
    Fate route: 15th day Escape Foreigner Cemetery - Shining Star after Saber and Shirou escaped from Kotomine Church, sitting at the graveyard: after these paragraph, the game crashes: "...Her murmur sound like a confession. Saber apologize to a person she cannot apologize to anymore...My heart understand just by being beside her."

    ReplyDelete
  61. it crashed when the color of the image should be monochrome

    ReplyDelete
  62. Any other problems before I start uploading?

    ReplyDelete
  63. I've renamed the file in this thing to patch#.xp3 (for me, it was 9), and the game crashesin the instant, i run it, it just shows a white screen. Have I done something wrong?

    ReplyDelete
  64. Did it crash before you used the fix?

    ReplyDelete
  65. Oops...haven't checked that updatedfix.xp3 I used was the 499kb one...I've downloaded it again, and it works with this 517kb one, it shows the new pics. Sorry for that.

    ReplyDelete
  66. I downloaded the patch and the novoice.xp3 is not included in it.
    Is it included in another versions?

    ReplyDelete
  67. It's included in 4.1, which is uploading right now.

    ReplyDelete
  68. I'm holding down F5, havent tried the patch yet, but thx for the awesome work on this.
