HaraPara: Kukuri/Iinori Route 100% English Patch

Just in time for Valentine's... weekend, it the 100% English patch for the Harachuchu ROUTE of HaraPara! This ROUTE features characters and settings originally featured in the HaraChuchu VN by Swaneye, in particular Kukuri Dei Deruviruto and Iinori Shiina.

Download the patch (dropbox):
https://www.dropbox.com/s/f04ye6lr9gf11f9/patch.zip

Mirror 1 (google drive):
https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B_IGMMmG5IrTMnlQeDRETlVzaGc/ (Upper left corner - file - download. Or Ctrl+S)

To install, extract all contents of the Patch.zip, then drag them and drop them directly into HaraPara's folder, same as every patch for HaraPara and Mamankyoushitsu. If, when playing through the game or attempting to launch the game, you encounter a script error: CLOSE THE GAME.EXE, AND DELETE EVERY FILE IN THE SAVEDATA FOLDER. IT SUCKS, BUT DO IT ANYWAY. Then relaunch the game. This should make the game and its save system compatible with the patch.

Thanks again (and as always) to Bonzaimonkey for his creation of this patch (and the Mamankyoushitsu patch) which make these translations possible. I apologize for the wait, and for every spelling and grammatical error with the translations (every script is unedited as editing would take extensive time). Thanks everyone for your patience and continued support of LQT.

Though concerning support, if anyone would like to make a donation to the 'Get LQT a new External Harddrive' fund*, that would be rather appreciated. Not only are the current two I use rather full, they are also rather old. I fear the day I cannot get them to connect via usb anymore, and have to try and attempt to recover all the project files.

*Funds may also be used for the procural of chocolate. Be forewarned.

Happy Valentine's Day, all.

    3. The four different options you can choose from relate to the four different game worlds (schools, in the storyline) that the MC visits in Harapara.

      First choice is the route for HaraHara, featuring Natsumi Suzumiya

      Second choice is the route for Haramin, featuring Toua Koizumi and Yuka Tsuzumi (Note: I do not plan on translating Yuka's H-scenes. Nope.)

      Third choice is the route for Harachuchu, featuring Kukuri Dei Deruviruto and Iinori Shiina

      Fourth is the route for Hime Koi, featuring Yuna Sawaki and Shion Kanzaki (not yet translated).

      Get all four endings, and then the harem end is unlocked, though I'm not sure the exact choices you need to make for it (I think you just visit each school at least once and it auto triggers...?) It's also not yet translated.

  4. Given that ErogeShop is defunkt and there's no way to actually buy this game, what's the procedure for getting around the copy-protection that's in Harachuchu?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. There's ways to buy the game, but if you mean HaraChuChu, most Swaneye games have an interesting 'feature' when you download the DEMO VERSION'S .EXE file (or find it in the cd's おまけ FOLDER) and MOVE THE .EXE into the games INSTALLED FOLDER and RUN IT INSTEAD OF THE ACTUAL .EXE.

      If you know what I mean.

      Delete
    2. I know exactly what you mean.
      Thank you, and thank you for the translations as well.

    1. Try...

      Uninstall the game

      Delete all left over files from the game

      Make sure you have the proper region/locale settings for your computer before you try to reinstall (Japan is the right region, of course) or have it set up properly with applocale

      Install the game somewhere in your user directory (NOT your program files)

      Apply the crack properly (if need be. Unless you bought the game, you probably need be)

      Run the game once (but do not start the story, simply close the .exe after you open it.) using the harapara.exe. See if it works. If it doesn't, there's a problem with your computer.

      Download and install the patch as recommended (extract everything in the patch and move what you extracted directly into the game's folder)

      Run the harapara.exe, and start the story. It should be in english for all the translated sections.

      Delete
    2. hi! Okay tried all that. in japanese system locale, the crack I am using does not let me click on harapara.exe, which still claims I need a serial key but I can click and run Harakano.exe and run it just fine without the translation patch installed. but the second I apply to run it with the patch it gives that error and looks like this when i load it up. http://imgur.com/WGcAjAo . I have also tried using the demo, but it has the exact same results as using the other crack.

      Delete
    3. I regret to inform you that you have it all wrong. The patch is for the HaraPara game, and it translates the story route for the CHARACTERS from HaraChuchu. You should not use the harakano.exe; hell, you shouldn't even have it. Further, when you click on it, it should not load the title screen for Harachuchu. Something has gone horribly horribly wrong. You seem to be trying to use the demo.exe trick that works with other swan games. It does not work with HaraPara.

      For the record, you should have HaraPara by Swan: http://vndb.org/v7060

      If this is the game you have, make sure it is installed properly uninstall and re-install, if need be. Be sure to delete the savedata folder.) Once installed correctly, get the PROPER crack (which you need unless you bought the game) and apply it. After that, run the game using HaraPara.exe (but don't actually start the story. Just exit the game.)

      Once you're sure that it runs, download and apply the HaraPara english patch I have here. Make sure you download and apply the patch from here, as it is the most up-to-date version. Overwrite any files when you install the latest patch, then run the harapara.exe and begin the story. It should be in english.

  6. I'm Quite Interested About SwanEye Games, So I´m Thinking Of Translating One Of Them, Hara Min, To Be Precise.

  7. i get this message when i try to install the game that says that protect.dll is missing

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Protect.dll (and Protect.exe) is a file that should get installed when you use the game's auto-installer (assuming you're using the HaraPara.iso to install the game). Mount the .iso in DaemonTools Lite (or another program), open the 'disc' in My Computer, then run AutoRun.exe as an admin. The installer should run, asking you where to install the game (I recommend just putting it into your Documents folder). Finish installing the game that way, then apply the crack. It SHOULD load.

  8. I want to ask..is this patch include patch for
    http://vndb.org/v1616
    and
    http://vndb.org/v7060 ?

    because in vndb.org i see only http://vndb.org/v7060 that have translate and this web is the link, but at the description above, you give me link to http://vndb.org/v1616

    and now im very confuse

    can you explain it?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. It is only HaraPara that is patched for english, my apologies. The reason I link Harachuchu is because HaraPara has characters that are from the Harachuchu game.

      Delete
    2. ow... i see, bacause i got confuse what i must to download....
      but this is 100% full translated right?

      Delete
    3. The HaraPara VN is made up of four different routes (containing characters from four different Swan games), plus the harem ending. Right now, three of those routes are 100% translated into English. As long as you do not pick the fourth route ( which you get by choosing the 'Yasutoku Academy' option), the game will be in English.

      Delete
    4. hmm....
      maybe i will wait for the full...
      just a little more right?

      Delete
    5. I am more focused on translating Mamankyoushitsu and other things than I am on HaraPara, and I am slow anyways; it might be longer than a little while.

  10. I have successfully installed the game (I think) and applied the patch but once I open the game the screen is off center to where I only see a portion of it and cannot click to start the game. Also it does not appear t be in English despite the fact that I applied the patch

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. If you cannot start the game, then you cannot see my translation. HaraPara has no menu translation (as of yet), so whether the patch works or not can only be determined by beginning the story.

      Meanwhile, it sounds as though you may have a problem that arose with Swaneye games and certain Windows Updates. Swan published this list of updates for the different OS that you'll need to remove for the games to work properly:

      http://swaneye.com/sup.html

      Delete
    2. Deleted the update and I still don't see the full screen when I boot up the game. Looks like this: http://imgur.com/zHEtDMp

      Delete
    3. It looks like your screen resolution is smaller than the game's native resolution. HaraPara runs in 1280x720, and doesn't go smaller than that. You can try pressing alt+enter to change it from fullscreen to windowed and vice versa, which might help re-adjust it.

      Delete
    4. My current screen resolution is actually 1680 x 1050. Also the issue was the same was windowed instead of full screen

      Delete
    5. Do you have the same problem even with running the game unpatched? From the looks of it, it's a compatibility issue between your pc/OS and the game. The translation patch only alters the in-game text, and nothing to do with the images or display or anything. I remember some anon saying he needed to get some patches to get older games to work right with Windows 7 (or was it 8?), but I don't know what those patches were, or how to implement them. This problem seems beyond my depth.

      Delete
    6. There's nothing on the HaraPara website about an update or patch to apply, either. Uhhh, did you try the basic stuff? Restarting after removing the updates, running the game as admin, using compatibility mode, etc.?

      Delete
    7. I've already tried compatibility mode in windows xp and vista (7 is what I have installed) and running as admin. I removed the patches but that just made the game stop working for some reason. I tried starting from scratch by uninstalling and then installing/patching the game along with the crack but now it won't even run. Currently trying everything again but after changing the location to Japanese as that's what originally got it running in the first place

      Delete
    8. Just tested it and the aspect ratio of the screen messes up after I apply the patch. Before adding the patch file and folder the screen view was normal

      Delete
    9. I just re-installed the game, running Windows 7 in Japanese system locale (using harapara.iso and daemon tools). Applied the crack (overwriting the old .exe), ran the game. It worked fine. Downloaded the patch I have linked on the Projects page, extracted the files (patch.xp3 and the patch folder) and moved them into the install folder. Ran the game. It worked fine, and the text was english.

      There is something going wrong with your install or the files you are using. Removing the patch should not stop the game from running. Installing the patch and the crack should not prevent the game from running like you described above.

      Uninstall everything.
      Delete everything.
      Reinstall the game (I recommend daemon tools lite and the HaraPara.iso), but install it to your desktop.
      Apply the crack (should be the _BBS.2DJGAME.NET_Harapara_Crack), overwriting any file.
      Run the game.
      If it doesn't display properly, you still have settings wrong. If it does, exit the game.
      Download the translation patch from my Projects page.
      Extract the files (patch.xp3 and the patch folder).
      Move them from where you extracted them into HaraPara's installed folder (so you should have patch.xp3 and the patch folder along with the savedata folder, the Harapara.exe, and HaraPara's other files).
      Run the game.
      It should work, provided your system settings are done properly (East Asia Language support, Japanese system locale, Japanese region settings, the relevant Windows Update files removed, etc.) I am running windows 7, and have used Windows Vista to run this game. I am unsure about windows 8, but as so far, my patch has not caused any problem such as the one you are describing on my systems.

    2. yes and no, fixed mine but found another one.
      every time i run a game in applocal the game chashes

      Delete
    3. Unfortunately, I have no experience in running the game with applocale, as I just use Japanese system settings for the duration of running the game. Though, once the game is installed onto your harddrive, considering the majority of the game has an english patch, doesn't that make it unnecessary to need applocale to run the .exe?

      Delete
    4. i dont know.
      if i run the game without applocal i get the mini bluescreen crash cause its not in japanese.
      if i do i get another error.

    8. This problem looks familiar. Try this-

      Uninstall everything.
      Delete everything.
      If you haven't yet, make sure you have the East Asian Language pack installed on your PC (google how to do this for your OS, as it's different between Windows XP, Vista, 7, and 8). This will allow your computer to display kanji, hiragana, and katakana.
      Mount the disc image of the game (I recommend Daemon tools lite)
      Run the installer using applocale or with your computer's locale and region settings set to Japan (you can access your region settings via the Control Panel)
      Install it to your desktop, or under your Username (so you should have a pathname that reads something like C:\Users\USERNAME\Desktop\孕ら☆パラっ!!~スワン中出しパラダイス~ )
      Apply the crack (you probably have the _BBS.2DJGAME.NET_Harapara_Crack), overwriting any file.
      Run the game using harapara.exe (use applocale if you are not using Japan region settings)
      If it runs, exit the game.
      Download the english patch.
      Extract the contents of the English patch (patch.xp3 and the patch folder, with all the files inside it)
      Move those files directly into the HaraPara folder, overwriting any other file.
      Run the game with harapara.exe (and again, use applocale if you aren't using Japanese locale/region settings)
      It should run. Start the game. It should be in english for all the translated routes.

      Delete
    9. I've tried with region setting then applocale then applocale in the region setting, but all i get is the mini bluescreen error.

      Delete
    10. The blue screen error generally comes when there's a problem with the savedata files, but I don't think that's the problem here. You can try deleting all the files in the savedata folder and running the .exe again, but I don't think that's your problem.

      Are you sure you're installing it properly in the first place? The file path that the second image shows me (with all the junk characters) indicates that when Harapara was installed, it didn't install with the proper language support.It shows that you have Harapara installed to E:\Downloads\[Swan]Hara Para!! ~ Swan Nakadashi Paradise ~ \[Swan] Hara Para\ JUNK CHARACTERS \harapara.exe but with all those JUNK CHARACTERS in the file path, your computer cannot navigate to the files properly, and thus cannot run the game (the actual error it's giving you is that it cannot open harapara.exe). This is probably a result of your PC not having the east asian language support necessary to be able to display the kanji/katakana/hiragana that Japanese PC programs need to install themselves. If you had the language support and region settings set properly when you installed HaraPara, your file path should look like E:\Downloads\[Swan]Hara Para!! ~ Swan Nakadashi Paradise ~ \[Swan] Hara Para\孕ら☆パラっ!!~スワン中出しパラダイス~\harapara.exe (assuming your computer can display those characters as well, and they don't just appear as question marks).

      Further, Swan games do not appear to like being installed to external or removable hard drives, as it causes odd and unexpected errors when they run. This is why I recommend you install it directly onto your desktop or at least SOMEWHERE under your Username (so it should be The blue screen error generally comes when there's a problem with the savedata files, but I don't think that's the problem here.

    14. Ok so i installed Hara Kano!! and Hara Min!! and they both work fine, i got Hara Para!! in the same torrent and tried to instal that also, but i get a new error. This error though has "UNICODE" in it so im guessing thats the problem.

      http://i.imgur.com/uUbXArs.png

      Also when im using Japanese as a system language the kanji becomes garbage letters and when im using english they become "Boxes" instead of letters, even in applocal.

      and your dropbox is down

      Delete
    15. Thank you for telling me of the dropbox problem; I hadn't known they had a download limit on files uploaded there. As for the new problem with HaraPara, I haven't encountered a UNICODE problem before. I don't know what torrent you're using, but I would recommend you uninstall HaraPara and delete everything file from it's installation off your computer. Then, search http://sukebei.nyaa.se/ for [スワン] and see if you can't find another HaraPara torrent that just seems to have randomly been uploaded extremely recently. That should give you the regular HaraPara .iso and crack, which you can use to install the game like you would any vn (with right use of region settings, locale, and/or applocale). After you verify that it works, then try and install the partial english patch.

      Delete
    16. Since you're distributing the patch as a zip, it can sometimes munge the files upon extraction if it's created under Japanese locale and extracted under non-Japanese locale. Try redistributing using 7zip or unzipping using Applocale on the zip program as well.

  15. Hi Loe, I'm just another confused guy here wondering whether this is a Hara Min or Hara Para translation...if it's Hara Para could you direct me to the Translation of Hara Min and Hara Kano??

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. This is a translation for HaraPara by Swanmania. I started it as an intro project for myself on the translation process and as an introduction for English readers on some of the Swaneye characters and Swan's usual content.

      HaraMin is currently being translated by another group, Onaji Sora No Shita De Translations (blog available at http://onajisoranoshitade-tl.blogspot.com/ ). They're entirely unrelated to LQT, so I don't know how active or alive the project is, though.

      HaraKano is still a project in the works by me, but I have to admit it is not high on my list of priorities. I released a joke translation for April Fools, but no actual official translation of any of it, yet.

      Delete
  16. For people who are having problems launching Hara Para and getting a blue screen of code and an error message in Japanese mentioning ANSI and UNICODE, I think I have the cause and (shitty) solution.

    Here's the error for the benefit of Google:
    "スクリプトで例外が発生しました
    ANSI 文字列を UNICODE 文字列に変換できません。現在のコードページで解釈できない文字が含まれてます。正しいデータが指定されているかを確認してください。データが破損している可能性もあります"

    First off, don't use AppLocale. I'm 99% sure at this point that it's simply not going to work, due to the way the NoDVD crack changed the way the game loads. So to test, change your regional settings to Japanese (don't worry, the main Windows UI will remain in English), and reboot. Once you reboot, try launching Hara Para from the harapara.exe file (with the icon of two fish). I'll bet it worked. :-)

    What I suspect is going on is AppLocale changes the codepage settings for a single app on the fly - in this case, changing harapara.exe to run as Japanese. However, harapara.exe is in turn launching data.exe after bypassing the DVD check - and the codepage settings are NOT passed on. Thus the game ends up running in an English (or whatever) locale and the script craps out, just as if you hadn't used AppLocale.

    So your install is probably as fine as it's going to be with the current crack and language patch - you just can't use AppLocale. Since I doubt anyone is going to update the patch to address this, just change your language settings and deal with a couple reboots when you want to play this game.
