< report >Seems like the name of the folder you provided in the post on Sukebei isnt the same as the one that comes in the torrent.
So I had to copy the name you posted in the torrent folder name as well and it did check files.

< report >I checked Sukebei post, doesn't look like I made any mistakes in the folder name.
Anyway, if the problem is solved, then it's all good.

< report >Finished test alt costumes patch per chocog2000 request.
link

Replaces Himiko, Abe Seimei, Vlad, Kamehameha, Billy, and Jiang with WWX costumes.
Notes:
-mostly untested, at least shouldn't crash (back up original files);
-fairly modular, each file changes stuff independently (means you can mix/remove unwanted replacement):
- AUGMajikoi/Event.dat - changes standing chars and faces in events;
- AUGGame/Battle/Piece.dat and Unit.dat - change chibi units in battle/skills (animations are not affected, including ultimate skill animation);
- AUGGame/Unit/Image.dat - changes standing chars in battle; ImagePurge.dat - changing purge images.
Due to the patch structure, I recommend restoring the original 1.1 Event.dat, if you want to read WWX content (there's a collision with faces replacement).

Installation: make backups, copy patch files to the main game folder with replacement.

< report >So the recent characters that have appeared in the newest banners in the Johren release are translated while they werent translated in the patches.
I do not understand how the process works here so does that mean that Johren changed the release plan for the banners?
Also bunch of new characters in the JP version. The new ancient hero is basically an splatoon character.

< report >I think it's time to bring some bad news. I lost contact with wolfmoren. He wasn't online since early June and, while some downtime in communication between patches was expected, it doesn't seem that he is coming back.
What does it mean to the project - essentially, tools for automated script conversion are no longer available. Which means all must be done manually (I have enough reference data and basic understanding of script language, but process will be slow and tiresome).
You can fully blame me for not requesting a backup copy for myself or not establishing reserve means of communication.
Current plan - project is on hiatus till September (unless wolfmoren will show up). I will continue to extract and sort data required for patches. In September I will re-evaluate status of the project.
Best case scenario - wolfmoren was tired and silently quit, or on vacation. Worst case scenarios are bad and I don't really want to talk about them.
Sorry for all people that expected next patch.

< report >I see that sucks.
Wonder if that also means the exhentai CGs will no longer be updated.
At least we got some Kublai solo scene for a send off.
Lets hope wolf reappears.
Thanks for the work done.

< report >I had the same experience as #1. Finally, it makes sense why something was felling off of this game. I just can't believe how many characters (as I saw the game's page) and more will be missed out....I absolutely can't believe they didnt add them as a DLC or anything really....I even saw the PS3 and PSvita versions of the 1st game....both PC versions of this series feel like a trial game now, a promotion of WWX...I'm so glad I finished the games, as I doubt I would have played the 1st or Gold if I know about WWX before head...Last modified on 2021-07-27 at 10:21

< report >They don't need to even touch PC games now when they swimming in mobile whales' cash.

Though, I feel you have a warped understanding of the situation. They didn't know they will leave the PC market when they released both games in 2012 and 2014.
So bashing those games because WWX happened seems unreasonable to me.

< report >So the issue is that you cant put the content on the game but you can still get the assets?
I wonder if there is a way to port the scenes to Rempy, manually even.
Like do you get the text of the scenes in text form so it can just be copy pasted?
I could try my hand at it if it means still getting updates. I want the new banner content, Alexander in a swimsuit looks great and finally getting to have sex with Appleseed proper (Even better if its a footjob).

Anyways im dissapointed that Tenco dropped the market but im glad they at least are still working on Eiyuu Senki.
Hannibal can still get an H scene (Better be 4 stars so we get 2 when she appears).Last modified on 2021-07-27 at 17:33

< report >I can put content in the game, but I need to manually re-check every script line for errors.
Which are thousands of lines per update.
I think you understand that's a giant piece of work, which I have not decided yet how to handle.

< report >Well in the case you decide its too much of a hassle and drop it, I want to know if it would be possible for me to just get the script, images and sound assets to try to port it to Rempy.
Would like to try at least.

Thats what I hope at least.

< report >Update on project status.
No signs of wolfmoren. At this point, I'm assuming he's not coming back (I hope for the best, but reality can be cruel).
So yeah, I'll need to do all stuff manually. Few points in that regard:
- based on my tests, the character shading system needs to go. Basically, all new content won't use it. It's just too much hassle to manually assign that shit without any automation;
- I have limited knowledge/experience about fine-tuning animations (shaking, char moving, etc.), so quality in that aspect will drop.
Since fixing and testing scripts will take much more time without automation, I'm not sure when the next patch will be released/what exact content it will contain. New issues might arise as well. But I do have the intention to release a new patch at some point in the future.

TLDR: not dead yet, expect the patch (with lower quality) at some point.

< report >Thats good news.
Again if its easier you could share the text on a text file so I can try porting them to Rempy.
If adding the content to the game becomes an issue I think thats the best option.Last modified on 2021-08-29 at 20:43

< report >This has nothing to do with it.
So long as the jp version runs the patch can still happen.

< report >As I said, I do intend to continue work on the patching. I'll consider your suggestion if I ever decide to stop working on it (though you might underestimate how difficult porting scripts to another engine can be).

English version was never in priority, it's was a bonus. If it's dead, so be it.
On that note, I need to check files from the last EN update in June. If I can salvage anything new, it will be in the next patch.

< report >Well if the text can be copied I will just copy paste and then handle animations/character sprites as they come (Though interpretating said animations will be tricky) I have some experience with Rempy so I dont foresee any issues. In theory.
According to reddit on discord the translators said that shortly before Johren dropping the game they made them translate a bunch of stuff and given some girls got translations that werent in the patch I believe there should be some stuff in there.

< report >I'm aware of translators' input. But asset-wise, there were no updates since the last maintenance at the end of June. I doubt we will see a new translation uploaded if Johren truly dropped the game.
