Steins;Gate bug ?

Hello minna !

So, let me explain quickly: I recently finished Steins;Gate and I'm now trying to complete it at 100% (sorry, I'm french, so I might make some mistake). In order to complete the game, I used a walkthrough, an english one for the true ending and a japanese one quickly translated with google traduction for the leftlovers.

I'm actually trying to obtain the last achievements that I need to finish the game, the one about the gero froggy wallpaper collection. I just miss one of those wallpapers, and to obtain it, I need to answer a mail that Kurisu send to me. The mail is the first mail that you got at the beginning of the chapter 7, about the key of the lab. So until now there's no problem, I succefully got the mail. Now, I'm suppose to choose "house" and then, Kurisu will re-answer. But... I don't know why, but I don't got an answer from her. I send the mail with the "house" answer but then, Kurisu doesn't answer. However, if I choose the other option (I don't have a key if I remember correctly), then she answers a few scenes later. The problem is that I need her answer in order to obtain the last attachements with the wallpaper...

I did everything like in the WT, so is this a bug from the game ? Or did I do something wrong without noticing ? Please help me, I'm kind of desperate >.>Last modified on 2013-09-16 at 20:11

I think I heard something about the English patch having a bug that makes it impossible to 100% it. If you want to do that, buy the official English release when it comes out.

There's an official release in English that will come out soon ?

Yes, but it's by Jast so S;G is still going to be filled with bugs when they released it soon, just like what happened to SDHQ.Last modified on 2013-09-17 at 14:26

OK, so if I understand, there's no precise date so we have to wait.
Anyway, thanks for your answers :)

IIUC, JAST leaves the technical side of localization to the VN's respective developers. School Days HQ's English version was buggy because 0verflow's programmers seem to be very incompetent. The Japanese version was already buggy, from what I've heard. Steins;Gate's engine will be localized by Nitroplus, so how buggy it'll be depends entirely on them. Though from what I've heard, the Japanese version crashes quite frequently.

Nah, JAST gets their own people to do most of the hacking.

This however is true. I hope Nitro+ doesn't fuck it up.

I had the exact same problem this very morning. Fortunately, I managed to find a fix for the game .exe in a steins;game forum. It was made by someone who was (I guess) in charge of the translation patch and realised that there was a mistake with the coding of that particular mail (and those that follow) in chapter 7.

You can find the fix here : link

I just hope you have the same version of the program as me, since it worked flawlessly for my game. Still, you'd better make a backup of the previous .exe before changing it.

Hop it'll help !
