Picking this one up as well. It should be a lot easier than Kanon. The thing I'm worried about most with this one is screen effects. It's going to require some testing but I think I might release a full episode 1 for people to test after I get up to a certain point. Let's say the first twilight since that should be enough to test a bit of the commands. Otherwise it'd take a while for me to release something major since I'm a pretty slow reader.

This small demo is the opening of episode 1 and goes up until where the OP movie plays. I am not affiliated with Witch Hunt in any way but I will deal with misc errors like typos if people report them here. I know the script is littered with them so you'll not only be helping out the DS port by reporting errors but also the PC translation.

Thanks, fixed that up. :)

I seem to have run into a problem. From my testing it appears to be the middle sprite causing the problem. Switching the order the sprites are displayed fixes it also. Instead of left, center, right; center, left, right works. Also removing the middle sprite fixes it but removing the right sprite does not. Here's the code for that section but nothing seems wrong with it from what I can tell.

Maybe you're going over the maximum size for sprites (256x192)?
Code seems fine.

Resolution seems fine for all 3 images. I had this same problem occur a little later with 3 different sprites too. Seems to only happen with the left sprite.

Sorry for the double post but I decided to give it a go in r119. It's working perfectly there.

7 Name: anoNL : 2009-04-15 04:48 ID:MFI40j0V [Del]

Then it's probably the image cache not leaving enough memory for the drawing code. (I'll run some tests later)

As I said in the first post, I am a slow reader but would upload Episode 1 after I reached the first twilight. I've finally reached that point and it seems to be playing well.

Some things to look out for:
Graphic effects where they shouldn't be (rain mostly)
Abnormally long delay timers
Off center character sprites
Broken images (if you constantly get a Guru Meditation error in a single spot, broken images could be causing it as I found out)
Any crashes

Grammar, spelling, or other missing characters.

What has not been tested:
Anything not long after the morning of the first twilight
Tea Party
Some major revisions were made before the first twilight so those could use rechecking

Sound effects are kinda weird right now as VNDS does not support playing multiple sounds at once. Sometimes the rain sound effect will get knocked out of the buffer by a knock sound effect or something similar. I could probably implement something for this some other time but it's not at the top of my list.

Umineko has some really long lines which go over the 500 character limit if you don't follow the same clicking points as the PC version, so sometimes you have to click in weird places. Report any weirdness that might've resulted from this but I don't consider this a bug as it plays like the PC version.

Download (main, without sounds):
Download (sounds):

I plan to require Episode 1 for future episode releases to cut down on space. These downloads will give you all resources except BGMs required for Episode 2 and above. Future downloads should in the 50mb area.

11 Name: Nagato : 2009-04-17 18:57 ID:MB7f1cqf [Del]

I also forgot to mention that the only screen effect displayed is the rain. The clock doesn't have graphics right now but will display a message like "Time: 0600" when it clock changes. I'll try to add in the clock sometime later.

Do you still have one of those images? -- I want to try and find out why the program crashes.

Has anyone managed to get the sound effects with the japanese filenames to play? I've installed them to the correct directories but VNDS doesn't seem to recognise them.

your best bet's probably to rename them just like what was done in fsn.

stupid japs, can't even follow standards.

That's a pity, from what I remember a lot of work was done on it, and the translation of the 4th episode was recently completed, as well as translation fixes to the 1st one.

That said, I'm not sure how the whole red and blue text issue would've worked with VNDS.

Just for a positive word, i have to say that VNDS is by far my favorite homebrew!

31 Name: Anonymous : 2009-09-08 03:56 ID:n5fr1P+1 [Del]

well it'd be easier if it was possible to use colored text. right now it only has white for past text and blue for curently displayed text, so no specific red text or blue text lines are possible.

sure, ep1 didn't use that but i'd prefer to port ep3. delicious virgilia.

32 Name: Lord Teapot : 2009-09-09 12:24 ID:Oze8YayG [Del]

Are the different text colours necesary? Infact even if it is, why not add e.g "(Blue)" in text in front of a line supposed to be dictated in blue? Im not sure how manual this all is so it could become more time consuming than it already is. :/ Ive only played through the first ep, so im a novice at umineko so if what im saying is kinda pointless then just say, and ill moan with the rest of you :p (jkin)

33 Name: Anonymous : 2009-09-09 14:58 ID:5olsjLcG [Del]

someone got colored text working(theres code to do it, just not a script command to change it).

but it wasn`t in .patch form so I ignored it

34 Name: Anonymous : 2009-09-10 01:51 ID:Heaven [Del]

Yes, the colors are necessary and that ($color) stuff gets confusing real fast, especially with sentences that have mixed red and white.

So what is that VNDSx 1.4.8 version on your site?
Is it the dream version we had been waiting for, combining all good aspects from 1.4.7 and 1.5.3?

Can you please add an 256kbit option to the converter?128kbit is kinda low for maximum quality.

You can get it from here:

It's just the translated first ep, but it shouldn't be that much different from Umineko.

Also, out of curiosity, has anyone tried using it with EP5 yet?

VNDS always crashes on me once I get to a particular line in the first episode. Am I the only one to have encountered this?

52 Name: Anonymous : 2009-10-28 06:22 ID:WN+A5Q5o [Del]

As far as I know, there can only be one VNDS directory at a time, so that switching between them would at least require changing the folder names each time. Also I'm not sure if just linking the novel directories works out. Surely you know a method to avoid having to duplicate each novel into the second VNDS directory, since that would "hurt" for sure, in terms of megabyte.

Please elaborate your suggestion accordingly.

53 Name: Boinciel : 2009-10-28 06:30 ID:kJrWGlbw [Del]

Have both .nds executables named differently, and keep them in the same folder/merge the old vnds folder with the new one? It shouldn't hurt, since there won't be de-constructive file conflicts.

Hey...It's gonna be a long post XD I had converted english patched umineko ep4...The converter progam run just fine and finished convertion...It generated 3 diffrent folders - "umineko" (29kb), _generated(289mb) and _orginal(4gb @__@)...well since umineko folder was kind of empty and _orginal was too big for my sd card to handle I uploaded _generated flie (The only diffrence between this and umineko folder was that there wasn't a save folder and there where actualy graphic and sound files in folders). VNDS detected the novel and the main menu with the choises of the episodes worked just fine but when I chose any episode I got a bug report "Unable to open script file: script/umil-opning.1.scr" I looked into the scrpit folder and there are only two files there - folder "special" and "main" file... should it look like? Did I do something wrong? Anyone?

"C:\Program Files\07th_Expansion\Umineko4\nscript.dat" appears to be missing.

This tells me two things:

  1. Since there is no "[WH] Umineko English" in the path, you seem to be converting a non-translated install.
  2. Every valid Umineko install should have an "nscript.dat" file since that contains the script.

Your Umineko install seems to be broken/modified/unreadable in some way. Doing a clean install should fix the problem.

Simple check to see if you're using the version from >>76

  • Does _generated/namemapping-background.txt exist?
  • Does it contain an a line with "bmp/background/mainbuilding/m1f_p2br"?

83 Name: Anonymous : 2010-01-21 11:07 ID:3IxsUhl3 [Del]

The text file exists, that line isn't in the text file though. Should I post whats in it?

84 Name: Anonymous : 2010-01-21 11:09 ID:3IxsUhl3 [Del]

And as I said, that error came with version 1.0.3, not the one you posted, since you said that the one you posted was a beta of some sort. Sorry for all of the double posts by the way.

85 Name: anonl : 2010-01-21 11:34 ID:gFyb7TFz [Del]

Use (see >>76).

Clean the _generated folder before converting.

When the _generated folder is recreated by the converter it should contain these text files:
_generated/namemapping-background.txt ~149KB
_generated/namemapping-foreground.txt ~197KB
_generated/namemapping-sound.txt ~8.56KB

86 Name: Anonymous : 2010-01-21 11:53 ID:3IxsUhl3 [Del]

I don't know if that will do any good, seeing as how whenever the conversion fails, i whipe the folder of its contents before attempting again :S. but I'll try again.

>I don't think the converter is making those text files that you're speaking of.

If it creates a _generated/namemapping.txt file you're using the wrong version.
If it creates nothing the program must have already printed an error earlier.

When I used the 1.0.5 converter, it created the three files you spoke of, so now I know that I'm using the correct converter. However, the file sizes aren't the same you listed, I don't know if that means anything or not. All three files are 4KB, so I'm assuming something is missing in them or something. But the files are indeed here, any other idea for what the problem may be?:(

92 Name: anonl : 2010-01-21 14:04 ID:gFyb7TFz [Del]

Just to check:

  • Your Umineko install runs on your PC
  • An Umineko Chiru install should be around 1.9GB
  • _original/arc is ~3.3GB
  • The _generated folder contains a foreground and background folder. Both contain 2000+ images.

93 Name: Anonymous : 2010-01-21 15:13 ID:3IxsUhl3 [Del]

I don't know about Chiru, but when I'm doing ep1-4, my _original folder comes out to only 1.03gb

94 Name: Noobanon : 2010-01-21 15:30 ID:ljk3oMcu [Del]

Hi anon , i have successfully converted umineko ep1-4 (with the latest patcher) , but i don't know what to do with the various files that i got now , should i include them in the vnds directory or do they work independently ?

95 Name: anonl : 2010-01-21 15:38 ID:gFyb7TFz [Del]

Then your PC install is still broken.

Copy the "umineko" or "umineko-chiru" folder that was generated to "/vnds/novels/" on your flashcard.

I'm about ready to give up, I did another fresh reinstall from my disk, same error appears, I don't know what I'm doing wrong. I guess all I can really do is wait and hope someone posts a pre-converted batch of ep1-4, since nothing I've done seemed to fix the problem. If anyone would be kind enough to do that it would be greatly appreciated ._.

A valid Umineko-Chiru install should look like this
293 files, 1.91GB

100 Name: Anonymous : 2010-01-21 18:23 ID:3IxsUhl3 [Del]

Mines has all of that. Also, I played through episodes 1-5 flawlessly on my PC, leading me to believe that there is nothing wrong with my install :s. I replay specific parts daily, so I know currently that banquet-end of the golden witch function properly. So I'm really at a loss at this point :(

Could someone upload just the converted scripts for EP1-4 and EP5 somewhere? Everything else converts just fine, but for some reason it won't convert the scripts won't, even though everything is in the correct directories.

Hi guys i have a little problem (how surprising indeed :P ) I converted the game for vnds and it seems to be working fine (i start it and it caches and all ), but after i turn off the DS and then start the game again then it just crashes with guru error all the time. I suspect that after the first load the files become corrupt of something :S Does anybody know a fix for this?

Hello all, I was just wondering if episode six would be ported now that Witch-Hunt has released their English patch for it.

111 Name: anonl : 2010-07-11 10:38 ID:gFyb7TFz [Del]

I'm already working on EP6, but quite a lot has changed internally so it may take some time...

112 Name: Rika Chama : 2010-07-11 17:43 ID:mGvy/qYf [Del]

Take your time, I'm just satisfied that someone's taking the time to work on it. =^-^=

113 Name: Miko : 2010-07-11 20:37 ID:zg3blUc0 [Del]

I am also very happy someone is working on it. I've read the first five VNs on the DS, and I would be very happy if I could read the 6th on it as well.

...this is sort of useless to me, as all the versions I have played were pre-converted for me. D:

116 Name: Rika Chama : 2010-07-13 06:26 ID:y06p+H9a [Del]

I'll test this version and tell you the results, thanks for the effort once again ^^

117 Name: Rika Chama : 2010-07-13 06:45 ID:y06p+H9a [Del]

Also I'll upload the converted version of episode 6 once I'm done, for people who don't want to use the converter themselves, if that's allowed that is.

118 Name: Rika Chama : 2010-07-13 09:52 ID:y06p+H9a [Del]

sighs I'm having trouble with this converter, I've tried converting episode 6 with the converter you provided three times, and it keeps giving me an "umineko-chiru" folder with no contents whatsoever in the subfolders. I've checked to make sure the patch is in its proper place (then again since i just finished dawn yesterday that was a given). Anyway, I was just wondering whether its a bug with the converter or something? Thanks in advance.

I was trying to convert ep6 and everything seemed to go fine, until the converter tried to convert the script. At that point it started to throw errors and in the end it didn't convert the script. I can boot the novel on vnds, but it won't go past the episode select screen, since it cannot find the script.

121 Name: Anonymous : 2010-07-13 21:02 ID:V2PeGrO2 [Del]

I get that so far their is no red text option for the VNDS, but my biggest problem is the slowdown. During big fight scenes like in ep 3 and 4, the sword swing sounds are delayed and not as sharp not to mention it takes forever to get past these parts since it loads so slow. I imagine this is because of my conversion settings, can anyone tell me the parameters for conversion so that I get more fluid battle scenes?

122 Name: Rika Chama : 2010-07-14 06:30 ID:y06p+H9a [Del]

I don't believe that its your conversion settings that cause the lag between fight scenes, its the command in the script for the repeating sounds, which VNDS most likely cannot handle. Also there is red text support for VNDS ( I believe that it's a custom edited version). Here's the link

Also, I'm going to give the updated converter a try, I'll post my results.

123 Name: Rika Chama : 2010-07-14 11:57 ID:y06p+H9a [Del]

The conversion was a success this time. I did however find one minor bug so far. Erika's normal sprite isn't present in the scenes where they should be. Instead, she's always wearing her wedding dress. So far that's the only noticeable bug, I'll report any other ones i may stumble upon (I know my knowledge isn't very vast in this subject, but I'll at least do what I'm capable of). Thanks again for your effort. ^^

124 Name: Rika Chama : 2010-07-14 15:17 ID:y06p+H9a [Del]

-UPDATE- I just realized, it's not just Erika, everyone has their alternate outfits, like caped battler, and meta-Maria, ect.

125 Name: Anonymous : 2010-07-14 20:03 ID:V2PeGrO2 [Del]

Playing through it now, and I realized sometimes it randomly freezes, usually when a lot of sounds are playing. For example it too me 6 tries to get through the final scene of Episode 2 because it kept freezing at different parts. Same with the Beato vs Virgilia battle. Is this normal due to hardware restrictions on the DS or did I mess up?

126 Name: Mikomaxless : 2010-07-14 20:13 ID:zg3blUc0 [Del]

Rika Chama, could you upload your successful converted version?

127 Name: Anonymous : 2010-07-15 02:01 ID:aJGsKzXF [Del]

How far are you? I would assume you are saying even the non-meta Battler/Maria/Erika are dressed wrong, but I just want to make sure. I can't convert mine right now to make sure.

EP6 converter v3:

The alternate costumes should revert back properly now.

129 Name: Rika Chama : 2010-07-15 07:05 ID:BcwCjjSZ [Del]

I'll upload mines, however, It's going to be the buggy one, until i can get back home to my pc i can't use this new converter. For some reason my laptop doesn't like converting episode 5/6 properly lol. So everyone's costumes will be messed up.

130 Name: Rika Chama : 2010-07-15 07:29 ID:BcwCjjSZ [Del]

Actually my upstream at my current location sucks, so you'll have to give me till tomorrow to upload mines, sorry. I definitely will upload it though, so check back in this time tomorrow.

131 Name: ShinseiTom : 2010-07-15 14:32 ID:aJGsKzXF [Del]

Here's Episode 5+6 converted and working as well as I think it can. I haven't tested anything but the ending chapter of Ep6, but it worked flawlessly minus slowdown.

Part 1
Part 2

If anonl objects to uploading it, considering he randomizes everything, I'll get rid of it.

132 Name: Rika Chama : 2010-07-15 17:38 ID:BcwCjjSZ [Del]

Thanks, you've saved me some time uploading it myself xD. Also, is this a conversion with the newest converter?O.o If so I may download it myself to test out, until I can get back to a pc that will allow me to convert it with my preferred settings.

133 Name: ShinseiTom : 2010-07-15 19:28 ID:aJGsKzXF [Del]

Yes, this is the newest converter. So it should have all known and fixable problems ironed out.

134 Name: Rika Chama : 2010-07-15 19:35 ID:BcwCjjSZ [Del]

Okay, I'll keep an eye out for any more possible bugs as I run through this tonight/tomorrow.

135 Name: Anonymous : 2010-07-17 05:35 ID:rou9FOFX [Del]

@ShinseiTom: The converted version runs perfectly for me in EP6

The only bug I encountered so far is that the sprites' clothes in EP5(cape!Battler and suit+longhair!Beatrice, etc.)
That probably doesn't matter for people who just want to read EP6 though

136 Name: Mikomaxless : 2010-07-18 03:50 ID:yBJ6KFHn [Del]

Well ShinseiTom, I just played through the entire thing. Minor freezing from time to time, but no major issues for me. Thanks a lot for the conversion.

Also, thank you for your efforts too Rika Chama.

137 Name: Rika Chama : 2010-07-18 06:06 ID:BcwCjjSZ [Del]

Well, the one who should really be thanked is anonl, since he's the one who actually made the converter. :s All I did was look for possible bugs, nothing anyone else couldn't do. But your thanks is appreciated regardless.

Shinsei, I ran into a problem with episode 5, epilogue 2. All through out the Battler sprite appears with his cloak, even when he should just have a suit.

141 Name: ShinseiTom : 2010-07-18 17:57 ID:aJGsKzXF [Del]

Well, I can't really do much. anonl is the one who made the converter, I just used it. If I really had to I could creep through his code to see what the problem is, but considering the size of the source and my ignorance of his code, it really wouldn't be worth it in the end for me to try to fix it.

He'll probably make a new version of the converter soon if he has the time considering the problems that have been posted so far.

And please, I don't really need to be thanked. I ran the converter, waited a little for it to finish, then uploaded what it spat out.
No work for me at all. Hell, I didn't even do but a tiny bit of testing to make sure it even worked ran.

142 Name: Rika Chama : 2010-07-22 18:22 ID:BcwCjjSZ [Del]

I know this may be a silly request, but is there a way you can implement an option for the converter to ignore the sounds, and just convert the bgm's? I'm assuming that what causes the lag during the action scenes is the sound repeating, but if I'm wrong (and I won't be suprised if I am) then just forget I asked something this silly, lol.

143 Name: ShinseiTom : 2010-07-22 18:41 ID:aJGsKzXF [Del]

If you want to test it, you can do a quick search/replace in almost any text editor on the script files.
In Notepad++'s case, search for "sound (.*).aac" and replace with "#sound \1.aac", without the quotes and with the regular expressions radio button selected.
This should find every 'sound' command and comment it out, without having to worry about it putting something in and unwanted spot, such as when a character says 'sound'.

144 Name: Rika Chama : 2010-07-22 20:21 ID:BcwCjjSZ [Del]

Thanks for the quick reply, I'll try that out, and post my results, for future reference.

145 Name: Rika Chama : 2010-07-24 05:32 ID:BcwCjjSZ [Del]

Well I did as you said, and the sound was taken out, it didn't change anything however, and it seems like the script is still giving the command as if it were loading the sounds...anyways, it was a good try I guess, but I figured that it would have been too easy of a solution xD.

146 Name: anonl : 2010-07-24 12:33 ID:gFyb7TFz [Del]

There are "delay" commands in the script to prevent it from pre-empting its own sound effects. Those cause delays, but you can skip them by pressing any button (though there may be 5-10 in a row in some places).

148 Name: Rika Chama : 2010-08-03 06:27 ID:BcwCjjSZ [Del]

I don't think episodes 1-4 were ever uploaded, however there is a converter in which you can convert them for yourself. Here's the link to the latest version.

149 Name: Taokaka : 2010-08-05 16:10 ID:JodO5xf7 [Del]

If someone could upload a valid version of the converted 1-4 episodes please, it'll be very nice.
Every time I've tried, my DS crashed at the same places because of a background error.

Help please !

150 Name: ShinseiTom : 2010-08-05 21:00 ID:uBC5Dho7 [Del]

What did the error say? It might be easily fixable without having to upload the whole thing (it's fairly large).

151 Name: Taokaka : 2010-08-06 14:00 ID:JodO5xf7 [Del]

I'll explain it simply.
I have the exactly same error as the number 51. A guru meditation error :
My DS freeze exactly at the same place. After many tries, I saw that if I make the backgrounds illisible or just delete them from the folder, I pass through the freeze.
I played the episode 1 just because of the demo who works on my DS.
Then I tried to play episode 2 with the episode 1-4 installation. My DS freeze again at a certain line. I tried to remove the backgrounds, play until a certain time and play with backgrounds again. The same guru meditation error freezes my DS a few lines after.
And, using Notepad +, I saw that my DS freezes every time with a bgload line.... But the files are ok because I saw them earlier on the game...

I don't know how to fix the error and a friend who have a "valid" version give me his entire folder, but I got the same error, and another friend have the same problem...

Did it come from my flashcard ? I dunno, it's a R4 but the demo of episode 1 and other VN from VNDS works perfectly...

So if somebody could tell me howw to fix the error, or just upload his folder, it will be pretty nice. Thanks

And sorry for my bad english.

Huh, odd. I have an R4 too and I've never had an error like that before except when I knew I caused it myself.
What place is it? I'll play my way up to that point myself and see if it freezes. If it doesn't, I'll try to upload my 1-4 version.

156 Name: Taokaka : 2010-08-08 14:45 ID:JodO5xf7 [Del]

I'll give you two examples :
EP1-Beginning : At the airport; right after "...Both groups are at the top of my must-kill list." line.

EP2-Beginning of the "'Furniture'" chapter : In the garden, with George, Shannon and Jessica. Right after the "George didn't know the details, but he naturally joined in, laughing the same way."

Thank you for your help.

Sorry for the double post, but this is the output.txt files I received from your "test debugger" :

158 Name: ShinseiTom : 2010-08-08 15:33 ID:pYmPNDJc [Del]

Well, I can't see anything glaringly wrong from the debugger (lol, even with it continually yelling everywhere, need to fix that).
I guess I'll just have to test.

159 Name: ShinseiTom : 2010-08-08 15:46 ID:pYmPNDJc [Del]

Was this EP1-4 made with the most recent version of the converter?

160 Name: Taokaka : 2010-08-08 16:29 ID:JodO5xf7 [Del]

Yes, I tried with the last version of the converter.... Maybe it's my PC install which is wrong but a frind who have a valid version give me his and I had the same problem.

161 Name: Anonymous : 2010-08-09 04:07 ID:pYmPNDJc [Del]

I think his converter has a lot of unused trash code (which some is wrong and picked up as such), plus uses a LOT of variables for name stuff that my program doesn't like at all.

I couldn't find anything guru-error inducing, so I guess I'll just need to install and convert my own version. My 1-4 was from an older version of the converter.

I am going to ask something though. The point in an image VNDS uses for displaying a image is the top left, right? In the output log of my program, I found some places where the X value used for displaying a sprite was > 256, therefore meaning it wasn't getting shown. Is that supposed to happen, anonl?

162 Name: ShinseiTom : 2010-08-09 04:11 ID:pYmPNDJc [Del]

That was me, btw.

163 Name: Taokaka : 2010-08-10 17:31 ID:JodO5xf7 [Del]

Do I have to give you any more informations or do I just have to wait ?
Anyways thanks a lot. It's very nice.

164 Name: ShinseiTom : 2010-08-10 21:40 ID:N7Dylpxi [Del]

No, no more information. I'm just being lazy and not installing it/converting/checking. I should actually install it just so I can reread the first 4.
You'll just have to wait a little while.

165 Name: anonl : 2010-08-11 06:12 ID:gFyb7TFz [Del]


>Is that supposed to happen, anonl?

No, but it's probably harmless. I don't properly convert rotated/zoomed sprites, it might be related to that.

The crashes are most likely due to memory fragmentation in vnds.

166 Name: Taokaka : 2010-08-17 10:49 ID:pbqr0hzB [Del]

Okay no problem I'll wait.
I also tried a defragmentation of my flash card but it changes nothing.

So can anyone help me? Where can I find these scripts? Can someone upload it???

175 Name: Roll : 2010-08-20 08:15 ID:+2SipvwC [Del]

None of them work for me good sir/miss. I guess I just need all of the .scr files that go in the "script" folder. (Btw, in said folder, I just have 1 file called "main" and another folder called "special" which has 4 files called "ep1_end, ep2_end, ep3_end and ep4_end". But if you could upload the 4 episodes I'd be really grateful :D.

ok, one odd question to Taokaka: Have a look at resolution of the background images.

i.e they all should be 256 x 192. if they are not they may cause the error you are having...maybe...

188 Name: Taokaka : 2010-08-26 02:48 ID:JodO5xf7 [Del]

Yes Hogan, it looks good on this side.
Every single image have a resolution of 256*192. Except the icon obviously.

189 Name: Hogan : 2010-08-26 03:04 ID:jeFRTwGC [Del]

haha, down under we call our grey brick a 'phat' ^^

Taokaka, as a random test, have a look at the resolution of the background images? if they are not 256 x 192, that might cause it to crash..maybe..

190 Name: Taokaka : 2010-08-29 08:41 ID:JodO5xf7 [Del]

Yes Hogan, all the background images have a resolution of 256x192

I wanted to let you guys know, using Mazeck's (well appriciated) conversion I get a guru meditation error (pc: 02026D50 addr:01FFFFFF) during EP 4, at the same point, anyone else experiences it?

Thanks in advance.

I would, but...for some reason the converter isn't picking up the english I haven't had any success with it yet :s.

207 Name: anonl : 2010-12-20 12:47 ID:gFyb7TFz [Del]

Do you get the "Game detected as Umineko-Chiru" and "Game language detected: ENGLISH" messages in your log?

The installer and ZIP use "[WH] Umineko Chiru English" as their folder name, the install guide stil uses "[WH] Umineko English" -- both appear to work. The converter only finds the translation if it's in a subfolder called "[WH] Umineko Chiru English".

208 Name: Rika-Chama : 2010-12-20 12:57 ID:BcwCjjSZ [Del]

There you go. By the way, am i the only one who has problems with vnds locking up after playing umineko for a certain amount of time? It just randomly freezes sometimes ;x

209 Name: Rika-Chama : 2010-12-20 12:58 ID:BcwCjjSZ [Del]

And I don't know what the conversion problem was, just switched from my laptop to my desktop, it converted fine on the desktop.

Thanks again, Rika-Chama, works great! :D

Also, when playing it, I have noticed it does lock up at times. It's why I save a lot.

Is there BGM for the Ep 1-4 DS link you had on 4chan's /rs/ Anonl?

If it is in the folder, then I must've upacked something I shouldn't have or not unpacked something as I don't seem to get any sound so far in the game. Just the beginning, so if it kicks in later I apologise.

212 Name: Dante : 2010-12-30 03:46 ID:fg/bOMkc [Del]

Sooo i've been having a play round with a few of the versions.

The 575mb package for episodes 1-4 above give me the same errors as stated, crashing when he says he's going to kill them, at the airport.

I tried copying the sound files from this version over to the 30mb one posted on /rs/, no dice, just messed up sounds. Assuming that versions not meant to handle sound?

The only thing is the no sound version is working fine, no errors and whatnot unlike the bigger, soundier package.

Aside from the various typos and folders that you speak of and I don't see in either of the downloads provided by Rika-Chama, I'm fairly certain you are doing something completely wrong somewhere. On the other hand, supposing you are using the converter on your own copy of Umineko, you are still probably doing something wrong anyways (in which case, I would haphazardly guess that you don't have the first arc of Umineko). As I find no point in doing something myself if someone else has already spent the time to do so, I would recommend just using Rika-Chama's downloads as they don't seem broken (not that I really looked) and should you be using Rika-Chama's downloads, I would suggest deleting what you have an redownloading, because once again, I don't really see any problems with his downloads.

Several lines in EP5 and EP6, the ones that inclute time (such as '3:00 AM', mostly notable in EP5 trial), are cut out after the colon. Is that an error in the converter? Is someone still working on it?

233 Name: anonl : 2011-05-17 06:47 ID:gFyb7TFz [Del]

Not with the current version -- the converter assumes a 640x480 resolution in half a dozen places and I'd have to add explicit support for the voice acting.

At first glance it doesn't look like too much work to support though. I'll look into it in more detail after I finish my current projects.

235 Name: Rika-Chama : 2011-05-23 07:44 ID:BcwCjjSZ [Del]

anon is most likely waiting for the full patch to be released before releasing a converter for it, since WH has only released a 50% patch thus far.

Played around with the PS3 patch a little.


  • Crop the sprites (they're actually taller than the screen)
  • Convert voice files
  • Support dwave command used for voices in the script
  • Automatically upscale non-replaced images to 1920x1080

As far as EP8 is concerned, I'll have to play it before I can convert it.

Have a beta:

Adds support for the PS3fication patch, including voice acting. Be warned that the patch itself is still work-in-progress and sometimes sprites/backgrounds use the old image instead of the PS3 ones.

241 Name: Rika-Chama : 2011-05-27 07:15 ID:RNR3ud6b [Del]

I'll test this the second I get home, and post my findings late tonight, or tomorrow.

242 Name: Rika-Chama : 2011-05-28 11:00 ID:BcwCjjSZ [Del]

So I did a little bit of testing this morning, and here are my findings. As stated, there were instances where old sprites collided with new sprites; however, I noticed this when flipping through episode 4, so I don't know if this is due to the fact that the ps3 patch only supports episode 1, or if that's what you were referring to. Secondly, the voices don't seem to work for me. No errors displayed, but I'm going to chalk this up to me using cm7, so I'll update my post once my phone charges and am able to test this with the stock firmware (since the stock firmware seems to not have problem with .aac files).

243 Name: Noname : 2011-05-28 11:56 ID:Msk/KSQs [Del]

Yes, the ps3==>pc patch only supports episode 1.

And did you get this sprites collisions problem on episode 2 and 3?

245 Name: Rika-Chama : 2011-05-28 14:33 ID:BcwCjjSZ [Del]

I've only played episode 2 briefly, but from what I've seen so far, there are no mismatched sprites/bg's. I was well aware that the ps3 patch only covers episode 1; however, I wasn't sure if that would still ring true with the vnds converted product. I haven't installed my ofw yet, so I can't say for sure the state of the voices.

246 Name: Rika-Chama : 2011-05-28 15:16 ID:BcwCjjSZ [Del]

I just got to test the voices on my stock firmware, and everything seems to be in order (at least for the bit that I tested). As far as episode 2 goes, it seems like every ones sprite is its ps3 counterpart, with the exception of game board-Beato, where her pc sprite is displayed. As far as 3 and 4 go, I'm not too sure yet, as I haven't really tested any of them extensively. On an unrelated subject regarding the vnds android port; would there be a way to implement an option to choose the alignment of the text hub in a future update? I'd much rather have the text toward the top of the screen, rather than under.

247 Name: anonl : 2011-05-29 01:21 ID:gFyb7TFz [Del]

250 Name: Rika-Chama : 2011-05-30 23:07 ID:BcwCjjSZ [Del]

No new characters appear in episode 8 from episode 7, so all that's being added is more text to the script. It should be around the same size as a converted version of episode 7.

Over the weekend i've been messing with this VN and got episodes 1-4 converted fine, but 5+ has been running into problems with the 1.3 converter. First I tried to convert the standard installation of Umineko 8 (and english patch) and it failed with an out of memory error:

I also noticed the _generated background files are all 0kb in file-size.

Then I tried copying the PS3fication from Umineko 4 to Umineko 8's installation directory and run the converter and it finished fine at least (with errors, but pimarily the Invalid image for ld :: xxx), but the scripts in the _generated folder were for episodes 1-4 and not 5-8.

The 1.1.4 converter works fine for Umineko 8, but doesn't give you the option for higher-res images >.< lol.

Just wanted to put this information out there to see if anyone else is running into this problem with converter 1.3.0.

259 Name: Dark09 : 2011-10-01 19:58 ID:8dAQ5qTQ [Del]

There not a whole lot to converting a game. just run the converter.exe file, a window will pop-up asking the directory where umineko is install, fill in that part with the path.

Next is the temp directory, which is typically c:\temp . Target platform is default to nintendo DS. Just click start and the conversion process will start, and will take a good amount of time to get everything done.

Once its done it should have created a directory in the temp directory, just copy that into your ds flash cart where vnds is located.

267 Name: Yarn : 2011-11-18 21:16 ID:yMyJxdZe [Del]

Okay, I know this has nothing to do with the converter you guys are talking about but I'm kinda need help with the pc installation of umineko (5-8). I already posted this material at another forum but I suppose it won't hurt to ask here...

Okay I'm at the part of the installer where it says "Japanese game files required". So I try to put the location of my installer file and I see this message:

"The specified file does not exist. Please insert the DVD or enter the download installer location, and try again."

The only way I could continue the process and click "next" is if I put the file location as:

C:\Users\Name\Documents\UMINEKO8_DL\UMINEKO8_DL\Um ineko8\うみねこのなく頃に散.exe

So, is the .exe file (うみねこのなく頃に散.exe)
the only thing I have to put on the installer location?

Then, it takes me to the "Ready to Install" part and when I click "Install", the Japanese version starts to run. Is this suppose to happen?

Next, the screen says, "extracting downloaded archive Please wait..." (this is the small screen witht the Beatrice thumbnail) and it's taking forever. When I say taking forever I mean the "extracting files from download bar" bar makes no progress.

268 Name: 123 : 2011-12-12 02:51 ID:mMuBLvSW [Del]

There's something wrong with the Episode 2-4 PS3 version. The sprites for, example, ange, is the sprites from the original novel. That includes Eva-Beatrice and others.

269 Name: Dark09 : 2011-12-12 05:32 ID:TAMF2kB/ [Del]

ya, thats to be expected when the Umineko PS3 patch only modifies Episode 1 sprites. Most sprites will be the older quality in episodes 2-4.

273 Name: anonl : 2011-12-20 02:47 ID:gFyb7TFz [Del]

The way costume changes are implemented seems to change with every episode, that's what's causing the missing image errors.

I've hacked together a workaround and am now working on the quiz chapters. After that, there's still the purple text part that I have to convert (mostly) by hand.

Here's a pre-release for those who can't wait:

The quiz chapters are implemented, but not thoroughly tested. Everything will break once you reach Bernkastel's game (chapter 9).

Epic win :-) thanks anonl! I just need to play through the rest of the game, then onto EP8 >.<!

278 Name: 9~~~~ : 2011-12-22 23:23 ID:mMuBLvSW [Del]

So... This is my first time converting. I'm not sure what I should be doing >_>

279 Name: Rika-Chama : 2011-12-23 06:33 ID:BcwCjjSZ [Del]

I messed around with the beta at a glance. So far, the only error that I noticed was battler wearing his Game Master cape during the scene following you picking the correct culprits in Bern's game. I wasn't sure if you meant that Bern's game itself would be broken upon reaching it, or other things would get wonky following her game, but that's all that I've noticed so far. I'll post again if I discover anything else.

280 Name: anonl : 2011-12-30 07:27 ID:gFyb7TFz [Del]

v1.4.1, you can now do Bern's challenge:

With this, episode 8 should be fully playable.

>.< Awesome :-)! Thank you anonl and happy new year!

282 Name: 123 : 2012-01-01 07:18 ID:I0DzCcSm [Del]

So... how does this work?

283 Name: egaS : 2012-01-03 21:46 ID:/AaqcF/S [Del]

Anyone kind enough to upload their converted ep8 folder?

Rika-chama, you're awesome <3 Also thanks to Anonl :D

286 Name: Rika-Chama : 2012-01-10 03:28 ID:BcwCjjSZ [Del]

Let me know if that one works fine for you. I actually set it to scale to my tablet, so it might not work correctly on the ds itself. If that's the case, I'll do another conversion.

287 Name: 123 : 2012-01-11 00:38 ID:I0DzCcSm [Del]

Sure sure... Actually, right on the start I get Guru meditation error... So yeah. It doesn't work.

288 Name: Rika-Chama : 2012-01-11 20:17 ID:BcwCjjSZ [Del]

This version should work fine.

289 Name: 123 : 2012-01-17 00:48 ID:I0DzCcSm [Del]

thanks rika-chama! this one works.

290 Name: Rika-Chama : 2012-01-31 15:38 ID:BcwCjjSZ [Del]

I know that I'm super late, but I just realized that there's no way to get the xtra scenes. For instance, during the quiz chapter, even if you get the answer right, you don't get the extra dialog between the people who gave you the quiz. This also goes for the extra content during the end, with Battler and Beatrice in the boat.

291 Name: Dark09 : 2012-02-07 08:18 ID:TAMF2kB/ [Del]

Bummer >.< , hopefully in the future the extra scene's/end will be added to the converter.

292 Name: Meekoh : 2012-02-26 10:41 ID:cCH+3RDy [Del]

Can I get a reupload of the converted ep8? Megaupload is dead now.

293 Name: Kurizu204 : 2012-03-29 11:10 ID:KoFDTNHy [Del]

Any chance this is or will be compatible with the Umitweak version with at least the sprites and backgrounds?

Seems to happen in the current version when no translation patch is found. Using 1.4.1 or earlier may work until I release a fixed version.

The converter should no longer bork when used on an UmiTweak-patched install.

304 Name: Tonyyy : 2012-06-21 17:33 ID:0zGtYrAW [Del]

Look, none of the converters have worked for me at all. Could somebody upload their pre-converted versions of both the regular Umineko and Chiru to mediafire or something? I've checked the previous links and everything was originally on megaupload, therefore, now unattainable. I would really appreciate it. I've tried converting both games, but I end up with a bunch of empty folders and a zipped scripts folder along with the icon and info files. Furthermore, if anybody wants to go ahead and upload their versions of the PS3-tweaked Umineko ported to VNDS, that would be really cool too...

What device would you like them converted for? The DS, or a smartphone. If the ladder, I need to know the resolution that you'd like it to be. I don't mind re-uploading them

308 Name: Tonyyy : 2012-06-23 19:45 ID:0zGtYrAW [Del]

The DS please! Thank you so much!

309 Name: cardslash02 : 2012-06-24 07:16 ID:oub5TDq1 [Del]

I uploaded my converted version of Umineko (EP 1-4).

This was converted for image size 640x480, so too big for DS but right for Android.

This has the newest version of UmiTweak patch applied, so the backgrounds, sprites are completely redone to the PS3 versions, and it's fully voiced.

Now will someone plz do me a favor by uploading Tsukihime hi-res image pack??

After finally getting the converter to work (my error was leaving the "enable voices" box checked) I have run into some errors in both installments of the game, being Umineko and Umineko Chiru. Allow me to ellaborate.

  1. When starting anything from the menu, the background music of the opening plays. This is great, but when starting a chapter that starts off silently or just as a sound effect, the music runs over. The same thing happens whether choosing from chapters or save files and even between each chapter. I read through "Coronation" in EP3 which is the scene when =SPOILER=

Eva finds the gold and becomes Eva-Beatrice
During that time, the music that plays goes onto the next scene, which is intended to be silent and change the mood. If you could adjust the script so that the BGM is reset to nothing at the beginning of each scene, it would be greatly appreciated.
2. Secondly, the recurring sound effects such as the creepy wind-blowing or rain or whatever only play through once and then cease. Maybe some kind of loop could be put in the coding to enable it to play and play again in succession.
3. The red text doesn't seem to show up from what I've seen so far. I read through the intro scene in Episode 7, when =SPOILER= Will used the red text in order to deny the allegations of the accused maid = END SPOILER = . Some funky code appears on either end of what I'm sure should be red. I don't know if that applies to all uses of red text throughout the games, but so far the only actual red text I've seen has been informing me that I saved my game or took a screenshot and such.

Thank you very much for your work on these projects. I would love to do a much more thorough testing of your conversion than this, but these were immediately noticeable.

Long and fancy comment... End.

314 Name: Dark09 : 2012-06-29 03:30 ID:8dAQ5qTQ [Del]

  1. Using :

music ~
would fix the problem with stopping bgm before the text show's or scene change (bgload)

2. Using:
sound [sound.extension] -1
would make that sound loop and to stop the sound later in the script you would use the sound ~ command.

3. text in vnds is only white, there's no real method of adding/changing font color/size...etc. So the best way of distinguishing red/blue would be to add in text like [Blue] or [Red] before the statement.

These answers should fix the problems.

315 Name: Tonyyy : 2012-07-03 11:14 ID:CSazUTDj [Del]

Well, the music idea worked. I updated all of the "quickjump" scripts so that the music would stop when opening a chapter in the game and that's all fine. I also fixed some errors in episode 2 with the golden butterflies showing up more than they needed to and readjusted the sound for the first scene in episode 7. After I make more corrections, I can upload my version of the script if you would like. Regardless though, I found various places in all the games where say "sound flangefemale.aac -1" was used. This is the creepy repeating sound when the goats and or butterflies are around. Whatever sound it was, putting -1 after it like the page says didn't make it repeat at all. I even tried putting other numbers there and no matter what, they only play once. I also copied your line "sound [sound.extension] -1" directly and none of the sounds would loop. Could this be a problem with my flashcart or a bad microSD card? I'm testing all of this on the DS by the way.

316 Name: Anonymous : 2012-08-04 13:54 ID:qdukMYtF [Del]

I know this isn't related to Umineko in any way; however, seeing as how you made a converter for both Higurashi and there any chance that we can get a Higanbana converter in the future? Thanks in advance.

Would any one possibly have the converted version of EP 1-4? If possible would it be Umitweaked?

Hi,would somebody be able to make a conversion of episode 8 for a galaxy tab 2 7.0? The resolution should be 1024×600, I'm trying to do this myself but the program doesn't have that resolution and it keeps crashing while trying to do it at another one, thanks

Is there any chance of us getting an updated version of the converter that supports the newest UmiTweak patch for Chiru? It'd be greatly appreciated. :)

Could anyone please upload their The UmiTweaked Question Arcs. I'm running on a really slow computer and even after leaving the converter overnight it's still stuck at converting voices.

324 Name: Rika-Chama : 2013-08-19 09:00 ID:qdukMYtF [Del]

So, I downloaded the new converter which supports the new UmiTweak modification. As far as bugs go, I didn't run into many, except for when it came to the Tea Parties/??? segments. In those two segments, massive sprite issues occurred, with things such as characters being completely off screen, or characters floating mid screen occurring. There is also an issue that seems to persist whenever there are three characters displayed on-screen at the same time. No matter who's talking, the sprite furthest to the right always takes priority (as far as layering goes), so they always appear atop the middle character. Besides these miniscule bugs, the rest of the conversion seemed to function superbly.

Okay, I got tired of waiting for somebody to upload the pre-converted Questions Arc with UmiTweak graphics and voice-over, so I finally did it myself. Here's the converted version with android tablet preset (640x480):!QER0TDYQ!A-TRzlrjM_BBPkdigb8h-HTDK_EUsNIkOuheNNaIChQ
