Shuffle! Game Translation (149)

This is the 4-ch thread for the Shuffle! translation.

Go ahead and post. Name not required.

2 Name: THRILLHO 2005-12-29 03:31 ID:9dyN+j5A

I am intrigued. Is this a good "first" visual novel? Should I watch the anime beforehand or wait?

3 Name: THRILLHO 2005-12-29 03:56 ID:Heaven

4 Name: THRILLHO 2005-12-29 05:11 ID:H9qs7ExU

I'm looking forward to this.

5 Name: THRILLHO 2005-12-29 06:11 ID:RLv6okmj

Unfortunately it costs $95. For a "first" visual novel you should buy Planetarian ($10), or Kanon ($30, and it's considered a baptism for otaku). The Kanon translation is coming in February or so.

If you're going to splurge for this, the translation will be finished within a few months probably...

If you want to try a couple (legal) free visual novels, you can download some from the insani site. Most of their translations are short, but it should give you a good idea of what to expect from a visual novel.

Thanks for translating Shuffle!. I have the game, have played with walkthrough, and even though I have a little knowledge of Japanese, but still couldn't understand thoroughly... This translation project is a very good news to me ^^. I pray that the translation patch would be finished as soon as possible.

Still waiting eagerly...hopefully it'll be done soon!

11 Name: lobo 2006-01-18 06:51 ID:PoQHz/jX

yo. well im actually thrilled to see that the shuffle patch is at 95% as of december but now that we are in jan. i would like to know how is the project comming alon are there a new info about when will it come out .

12 Name: dmpk2k!hinhT6kz2E 2006-01-19 22:39 ID:Heaven

Be patient, man. Translating a visual novel isn't something you do in one afternoon.

13 Name: lobo 2006-01-20 17:56 ID:ood6yYnx

your right is because im exited that is almost done ^^

14 Name: dmpk2k!hinhT6kz2E 2006-01-21 01:05 ID:Heaven

Sure, but I'd like to point out that the remaining 5% is the hardest part.

Unless their estimator is experienced at this, they're probably 70% done, not 95%. People underestimate that last "5%" badly.

(Speaking from experience)

15 Name: lobo 2006-01-21 05:22 ID:fuJP7+Ii

oh i see lol yes they do well i guess we just have to wait patiently then

16 Name: beliveindz 2006-02-01 23:46 ID:CinQFMRG

I just finished trying out Narcissu, and that was my first one. Any other suggestions and where to get them?

20 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2006-03-01 18:36 ID:lgZOUQSV

Try some of the demos at after that you can actually buy some. I recommend buying Ever17, I heard it's pretty good.

Oh and of the demos at insani, try Fate/Stay Night first.

21 Name: dmpk2k!hinhT6kz2E : 2006-03-02 22:51 ID:Heaven

I highly recommend Planetarian.

22 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2006-03-09 06:37 ID:tFis/J+v

why is everyone calling it visual novel when its actually eroge

23 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2006-03-09 14:02 ID:Heaven


Why do you think it has to be exclusively one or the other?

Shuffle preliminary patch is out.

25 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2006-04-04 18:54 ID:AkXcPRzE

I played it with the patch, menus look great, and it's a good translation, too bad it's only the first two chapters that are translated. there's also a little bug with the place of the letters, a lot of letters are 2 far away from eachotherand some overlap eachother. well, at least it's readable. I'd say keep up the good work! I'm looking forward to the next patch.

26 Name: Twin : 2006-04-07 00:07 ID:k0d+2iAn

Hmm, I dled the patch, but where do I add the files x_x

27 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2006-04-07 15:55 ID:NmEKGENZ


The text was wierdly spaced with the default font, however, changing that to the gothic font fixed that problem. Also, for some reason, every line started with "u" and had a "v" at the end.

Besides that, there were a few typos, but it's all fine. Good job on that patch so far.

28 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2006-04-18 01:50 ID:dBd0SlWE

About the "u" and the "v", that probably means you don't have non-unicode programs set to Japanese.

29 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2006-04-19 04:38 ID:WFjKv4QC


How do you set it to Japanese?

30 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2006-04-26 02:18 ID:KTTWLoXG

Well, I simply used Applocale since i though it would end fine since the game is translated in and all that. I'll try rebooting in jap mode.

31 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2006-04-28 16:35 ID:YBTmCHir

Um... when will they release the full patch?

32 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2006-05-01 21:06 ID:CTfherTI

So, the next patch will translate the whole game?
By the way, nice job with the first two chapters.

Actually I have the "u" and "v" problem as well (no jap. language + broken Xp prof. install CD :S )
.. too bad :)

Any other ways to slove this problem? :/

I think they're fixing some kind of problem in the font since most computers have weird fonts in Shuffle's alpha patch. I bought the game for $95 because I saw this english patch...

66 Name: suki4anime@yahoo : 2006-07-25 02:08 ID:eYLaK99/

please everyone put the word out to anyone with translation experience that help is needed to finish. otaku's everywhere are eagerly waiting. For now go to animesuki and get the shuffle series torrent. it get's 4 stars in my book, along with fate stay night and full moon wo sagashite.

67 Name: Peter : 2006-08-05 12:55 ID:Pr9t6nCZ

I'm really anticipating the final patch for it. I've tried so many different programs to get the text translated I've given up. So I decided to do what I do best: Play the game without getting it translated. Hell, I completed the Card Captor Sakura and the chobits games on the GBA in Japanese. This is the same just with random characters instead of Japanese (my computer won't put Japanese text in for some reason. All i get is a load of gibberish).

68 Name: Peter : 2006-08-05 13:44 ID:Pr9t6nCZ

Well, I did it. I completed Kaede's storyline. All with the help of logic (and a pen and paper)

69 Name: FREI : 2006-09-04 12:38 ID:TD4qXSZy

70 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2006-09-05 15:37 ID:Lt4Isp49

>please everyone put the word out to anyone with translation experience that help is needed to finish.

What kind of translation are we talking about? Is all the Japanese ripped out into a text file or something? If so, I could lend a hand.

I mean, I could help if the text was just on screen, or if there was text+audio, but it would be more work and slightly harder.

71 Name: tmmtohru : 2006-11-03 18:47 ID:tilmx/SJ

Aww the link is dead.. anyone can share the patch whit me? ;_; any clue wen the link be back up?

there will be a full patch soon, so u dont need the alpha patch which is crap anyway and just a translation of the very beginning.

73 Name: hopes : 2006-12-08 13:44 ID:iwK6oNMk

Peter, you need to set up Japanese for non-Unicode programs.

Here is a link explaining how to do it. ttp://

so.. hmm...

I dunno about good, the closest I've gotten is the GBA Love Hina game with the translation patch. Not that great.

85 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2007-07-14 07:43 ID:pfRdaMQp

Does Comic Party Portable on the PSP count as anime related? I liked it a lot.

well, I hope not, I am still waiting and can still wait until the patch is availabe. For the meantime, do your best to complete the patch.

I wish we'd get more fan-translations for visual novels; it's really a neat medium. It's a real pity it hasn't caught on outside of Japan.

89 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2007-11-08 02:59 ID:1QXTdK73

There are a few western game translators out there, I do remember seeing Hourglass of Summer / Natsuiro no Sunadokei in English. The real shame is that the really, really good visual novels never get picked up so we have to wait for fans to take years to do the work.

There was progress by a game translation group known as GAMEPATCH, run by Helkin. Unfortunately something has went wrong with the domain ( and the site has been wiped off the web. The translation that is out (The alpha patch) is incomplete and only goes to the 3rd Day. Anyone please post information about the current status of the patch or any new developments.

project hasnt been abandoned, the problem is that Helkin has no internet in Japan, and we cant get the necesary scripts and crap from him. The thing is just about translated and edited, if Helkin had internet, the project could have been completed months ago.

125 Name: NavelFan : 2008-12-11 23:00 ID:Z76D+lIf

Ok, if Helkin really is in japan, and really doesn't have internet, how did they tell everyone? With a long-distance call? And yeah, I don't trust anything that is said about Helkin, because nobody seems to know anything beyond the fact that they don't have internet. Helkin might have DIED for all we know. And waiting for one person to come back after so long is kind-of meaningless. I advise the contributors find someone to replace Helkin, and finnish the patch. Waiting for them is wasting time and money. Not to mention annying little rumors flying around. Does anyone agree with that? I personally think that Helkin gave up and didn't tell anyone about their failure.

126 Name: jx : 2008-12-13 01:50 ID:oZgBMVYZ

127 Name: Drunken.dx : 2008-12-23 10:58 ID:OhT3OZuh

According to gamepatch the patch is completly finished already and has been for awhile. They (Gamepatch admin) just cant find Helkin who has the only copy of the finished patch.

I too have been waiting for the patch for years. My patience wears thin as my copy of Shuffle! gathers dust. I think it'd be faster to just learn Japanese than too wait until it is released...

131 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2008-12-30 19:31 ID:nyXdhnkP

perhaps I'm old fashioned, but I've always noticed this topic and wondered why it even existed.

Why are you guys so hooked on the Shuffle! game anyway? once it's translated into english, you'll probably play it for like 2 hours, fap, and forget about it.

132 Name: Xeiom : 2009-01-06 00:25 ID:r4/yR+W1

Shuffle is not really a game, its a visual novel, so its got a good 80+ hours to it.

The Shuffle Universe is unique and lovable, just watching the Anime or reading the manga you can enjoy it, but it was a game beforehand, the reason behind the success of Project-Navel(the company that made it) so naturally we would want to see it. Being a visual novel it is also timeless, it would still interest people in years to come just like books do!

One thing that interests me however is that they are translating the game into english (i've downloaded the first 3days which they released to prove it would work) and the text is english and voice (ofc) remains japanese. i would like to use that and see how much japanese i can figure out from playing it, with my own little guide to what it actually means. Great for learning Japanese(as mentioned above may actually be able to play game in japanese by the time it comes out though ^^)

They have made atleast 3 days into english and also uploaded the complete translation onto thier server, which died mere hours later, its possible some people out there hold a copy i assume but i doubt they will be sharing it even just for lack of knowing that its no-longer around. The server "died" and the files were lost, helkin remaining the only one with the translation. they reuploaded the alpha patch the last patch that the website runners actually had.

they also posted on the website that they would be refreshing everything after another server death (not trusting these server people i think) but no positive update has been made since, latest it now says Nginx.

They should put something up but no-one seems to be compunicating between their team and the community, i belive most of the team were all close friends and probabley do not feel the need to give us updates, who knows maybe they just got busy, maybe helkin is dead. if i learn anything i'll pass it on where i can.

10% Helkin's Dead
4% Server gets back online within a month
80% Server gets back online by september
13% Server comes online with the patch
98.88% You learn japanese before the patch comes out
43% Patch Is lost
47% Patch Never Existed Past 3 days
100% You read the chances

For the love of God, would someone just spread the word that it's a hoax? They've been sitting on a "completed" patch for what, like 5+ years? It's fake. Beats me why they're keeping this charade up. OWN UP TO THE HOAX. THIS IS THE INTERNET, CHANGE YOUR USER NAMES AND YOU WONT GET ANY FLAK, but if I were the creators, and the do finally own up, I would watch my back at night...

waiting won't do anything, just learn japanese.
if not, or rather u don't like to, then wait for your selves.
but if it's the moment that I posted here the time the patch is up...
what a coincidence I guess? XD
sometime sooner or later, if the patch exists then go~~~
this is the internet after all, don't mind my words too much if u hate it

Hello everyone!

So, its been a while hasn't it? Its update time.

Ero-Jiji is alive and well. He is currently stuck in USA waiting on his visa so that he can go back home to Japan. All of the Shuffle files are on his HD at home in Japan, so he does not have access to it. The reason he is still waiting on his visa (He applied for it 6 months ago) is because of the election (thats our best guess) and paperwork is backed up to hell. He has recently gotten his Passport in, hopefully his Visa will be soon to follow. So he is hoping to be able to return home within the next month or two.

The whole surgery thing was my wife and I. We had our baby, and to be honest, life has been hectic since. At 1 month our son had to have surgery for Pyloric Stenosis (google it), we moved in december, and now we are 1 month away from our wedding. I will be completely honest and say that I haven't had much time to get online at all since.

As for the website, our webmaster, Lordi, is working on the site, changing it over to a new system. At the moment, I believe college is catching up and he is focusing most of his time on that, since the website wouldn't do much good until Ero can get back to Japan anyway.

As for the shuffle patch. Yes, all the work is done is done, it just has to be finalized (make sure no files are missing or anything), compiled, and distributed. But as I said, its all inaccessible until EroJiji can go home.

As for the Welcome to NGINX thing, I am supposing that is something that Lordi threw up with the new server system. We will get in touch with him and ask about it, and when we can expect the website to be back up.

So yeah, with Ero stuck in US, me and my wife taking care of our son, and Lordi dealing with college, there is no progress to be made or reported at the moment. GamePatch is still alive and well, we are just having some IRL issues at the moment.

I will keep an eye on the thread, and try and answer any questions you folks may have.

Thank you,
The GamePatch Team

Well, the truth of the matter is, during most of the time you all were waiting on shuffle, so were we (the staff). During that time, Ero-jiji was unable to contact me or any other staffers. I finally got in touch with him July of 2008, and he is currently waiting on his Visa (he recently got his passport, so his visa should be coming soon) so that he can go back home. The only thing he has planned to do in america before going home is to attend mine and my fiance's wedding.

He is a japanese citizen. But he filed for his new US visa (it had expired) about 6 months ago, because it could take up to 2 years and a lot of hoops to jump through to get a US visa in japan. So he is waiting on that, else he won't be able to come back to the US for a long time.

There are plenty of other visual novels being translated into English. Just play them instead.

142 Name: emiya : 2009-06-21 14:27 ID:HiuKmzG8

so they didn't work on the english translation patch at all???

143 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2009-06-22 12:43 ID:uSRUUyoX

There are so many visual novels and eroge translated into English since this topic was started. Just play one of them instead. It's dead, Jim.

144 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2009-07-09 07:03 ID:+BqPucqC

there are updates

145 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2009-07-20 23:07 ID:sHOwdSHt

Yeah. Updates from MangaGamer that they're going to release it. So save up your 50 Euros or whatever and buy it!

146 Name: Helkin : 2009-12-23 07:49 ID:47VXHNKh

Yeah, newsflash. It was all a joke. We never even started on a file. In fact, I'm the only one who's real. There was no crew. Nobody actually did any work. I just took credit of some uncompleted patch someone never finished, abandoned and moved on from. The game sucks. Really. It hardly compares to other Visual Novels. I'm overly-tired of you idiots emailing me. STOP. You've waited YEARS for one game's patch? How stupid can you be? Just move on and jerk off to something else. And if you really need a translation, just Google a Japanese to English translator. Hope you had a fun few years waiting for disappointment. You may want to look around for a canceled Shuffle! translation patcher. Seriously. How can you buy all these obvious lies for so long? I thought you'd give up in a few months. Have a good life. Goodbye.

You fail as a troll.

anyways, shuffle was translated and released by mangagamers who was working with Yandere translators to get it done.
Now we just need shuffle! essence plus translated and we will be golden.

Also, higurashi was released recently, go get yer copy.
