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.

I'm touched...

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

19 Name: Good Stuff : 2006-03-01 14:06 ID:l1Nw+0+P

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?

24 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2006-04-03 03:54 ID:C7N7hJmu

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? :/

33 Name: Peter : 2006-05-06 20:36 ID:zyXrQIwo

How long has there been a virus on the site? It tried to load when i visited using Internet Explorer. My Anti-Virus went OMFG air raid siren but it killed it.

39 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2006-05-11 06:51 ID:ho+FIwCz

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...

40 Name: Chino13 : 2006-05-12 22:15 ID:Cv/kSbfX

Who didnt?

65 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2006-07-24 13:49 ID:dd3/bidt

>>63 Play other eroge while waiting for the translation. (Do you think they dropped it?)

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

The alpha patch link is dead... I need it now >_<

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?

72 Name: Wishes : 2006-12-01 17:04 ID:YfpjL5kR

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

Well the people from says it will come out when it does (shocking). It has been speculated in february at the earliest, probably even longer..

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

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

78 Name: Saihamaru : 2007-02-16 10:00 ID:83FwVkYH

Isn't your OS installer CD comes along with Eastern Language Pack?
Just install it at the Language and Regional

79 Name: Kelvin : 2007-03-25 08:08 ID:t2cWzkOt

U juz have to re-programme the unicode programme and set it to japanese in the control panel if u haf any if not u can download it on the web. ARGH THE LINK BROKE ???

80 Name: CloudMG : 2007-04-14 16:09 ID:6xak5rP1

81 Name: W4lt3r : 2007-07-02 22:23 ID:IFZF9VnY

I'd like to know also where to get the patch.

How come the link is dead?

82 Name: guy : 2007-07-05 16:47 ID:h3Dyn1mB

in my opinion, i kinda think that the shuffle staff is doing the project for fame/popularity...

last news update i saw that related anything to the patch was a few months ago..

so.. hmm...

83 Name: I'm a nun : 2007-07-13 21:44 ID:aY7Loekk

So... anyone played any good anime related gba/PS games? :D

84 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2007-07-14 02:35 ID:ioUcOWwj

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.

86 Name: Shree Shree...nickname... : 2007-07-20 15:59 ID:5wSVr5b2

i wish that i could get an actually good english patch..........GRRRRRRR...>_<

87 Name: Asa Sempai's Secret Admirer : 2007-11-06 13:39 ID:dXdlSzuU

Hmmm, when will the patch be completed, it's been too long since then..... did they dropped the project??

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.

88 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2007-11-07 00:28 ID:xtmvj2rL

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.

90 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2007-11-24 14:36 ID:eG1Ghsb5

The link is dead, is anyone else doing the translation?

91 Name: Rothen : 2007-11-25 17:49 ID:5Tj3Jk6+

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.

96 Name: RandomNobody : 2007-12-11 04:57 ID:+PSXrmwb

I have it I guess. A version of it at least. No big deal really, and has a lot of typing errors too. As far as that goes, you're better off without it.
