Re: Virgin's Protection Magic Translation (v 0.82 released 23/07/2017)

So I didn't ever want to post which made me look stupid but here goes: I've been trying for hours now to get the rpgmaker trans to work, no success. I've got no idea where to find an exe, do I have to compile it? In general it's weird that I can't really download from the main tab, can only click on branch and there I can get the required version. I've used an older version in the past without any issues but this one I am stumped.

On another note I'm really happy things are progressing, keep up the good work really liked the old version and this one will surely be great to(if I can get it patch that is).

Check my sig, and the big green button that says "Download on Bitbucket". That will take you to the downloads page. Even if you've arrived at the Bitbucket project page, there's still a "Downloads" section, so I'm not sure what you're looking at to be honest.

Re: Virgin's Protection Magic Translation (v 0.82 released 23/07/2017)

Is anyone else having a problem with the game shutting itself down?

Its not a total CTD as in the game freezes and disappears, the game window de-fullscreens and turns into a small black window - like the game is exiting.

Seems pretty random when it happens.


Edit: Might've been my fault, I applied the patch into the same directory as the last version, I've since reapplied it to a clean directory and it appears stable.

If you need help with RPGMaker Trans, please go to the RPGMaker Trans bug tracker. As I have said many times, and in my sig, ULMF is not the place to be asking technical support questions.

Not sure if that was stated already, but in Sex Shrine B...2(?), two treasure chests announce the wrong item: a strong salve and a cross you can equip. The displayed icons are correct though, just the "You got X" messages are swapped.

It has been reported, but don't worry about that. I would encourage anyone who spots anything wrong with the translation to post about it.

A current (porbably incomplete) list of things that I'm aware of:

  • Items need a second pass in general
  • Text overflow in King Humfrids dialogue, and possibly in other dialogues using big text
  • Sex shrine treasure chests mixed up, some choices messed up, B2 map named "Sex Shine B2" instead of "Sex Shrine B2".
  • Probably some other treasure chests which are messed up too.
  • Bunch of errors spotted by Akitoru (1 2)
  • Version 1.1.4 content needs translating
  • Realign graphical names

Something I noticed while playing the little bit of Act 5 that is translated, the guard captain's name has a bit of the top of blue text peeking out from the bottom, similar to what I mentioned about Llywelyn before, which I believe is part of his name/title pushed to a second line because the text is too long.

Whoops, forgot that one: Adding "realign graphical names" to list.

Right ho, so I suppose I should do a progress update, because it's three weeks and no word.

Since the last release... Not much has happened. I've taken a bit of a break, but I'm starting to get back to work on this - I've translated a couple of H-scenes. The plan is to focus on the H-scenes first, then do the story. The list of things I need to fix hasn't been addressed yet, because I'm still working out why some of my tools didn't work properly.

Work on RPGMaker Trans also had a bit of a hiatus as well, to be honest. I had hoped to get the new version out last month, but in the end there was just too many things that I do need to sort out for it, and I simply hadn't put in enough time to get it ready. v5 actually can patch games at the moment, and it's looking to be substantially faster as well. However, there's still a lot of stuff that needs to be added, with the biggest items being better support for writing patch files, integrating the new script patcher, and the new GUI.

And on my other side project, the algorithmic decensor work: I'm still investigating my options here. I'm hopeful I'll be able to coerce my RX 480 into running the machine learning software I need for this, and then I'll be looking to do the final big model training on Google Cloud (which recently updated it's ToS to not outlaw pornographic content). One thing which I haven't addressed yet is finding a corpus of censored/uncensored image pairs; obviously E-hentai is where to get the pictures, but I'd need to do some work to pair up the images. However, having reviewed the literature available, I'm about 90% certain that an algorithm decensor is possible to achieve - although it will have to wait until Google allows me to purchase time on a GPU instance to get a good result (currently these aren't available in my region).

Finally, I should be launching a proper website at some point in the near future. I've actually had the URL sat on for some time, but am only now getting round to setting it up. As well as being a nicer place for my own projects, I'm hoping I can also use it to host RPGMaker Trans patches from other authors as well, with it being slightly easier to manage than the current mish-mash of hosting providers. Of course, it is being hosted on a low-end server, so there may be issues with capacity etc, but I'll cross that bridge when I come to it.

Does the patch for the version 1.1.4 will be ready soon?

Nice work anyway.

Nice work anyway.
The v1.1.4 content requires some additional tooling which isn't ready yet. Or at least, if I'm to translate it in any reasonable time, due to the fact that while I'm pretty good with Japanese at this stage, my vocabulary is still awful.

You are of course, reminded, that the current v1.1.3 patch will work on v1.1.4; it just won't translate the new content.

(Also, for anyone jumping in to the last page, I posted a progress update which is the last post of the previous page. Might be best to read that.)

Oh right, my bad. I probably screwed up last time while applying the patch, then. It worked this time. Thanks!

An interesting project. One thing I always wonder about Japanese works designed for Japanese audiences is how many of them actually put detail into the genitalia, and how many just approximate it since they know it will be censored anyway.

An interesting project. One thing I always wonder about Japanese works designed for Japanese audiences is how many of them actually put detail into the genitalia, and how many just approximate it since they know it will be censored anyway.
All things suggest that the actual detail put in varies, but it's normally not a lot. Quite a lot of times a vagina will just be a line, unless something's going into it.

In any case, that's not actually too relevant for the algorithmic decensor I'm working on - if only because by the application of the mosaic, the actual detail is destroyed forever. My initial ideas using Waifu2x are a good starting point, but they often produce bland, warped decensors, precisely because they don't have sufficient detail - in both the original image and the mosaiced version. To do a good decensor, the algorithm must synthesize some new details. Hopefully not too much, because this kind of thing takes a long time to train, but some new details must be created.

As an aside, if people want a gentle intro to this type of technique, Ars Technica has a good article on a Google Brain project that did this kind of enhancement technique. Obviously I wouldn't be seeking to do anything nearly so complex (they use a machine with 8 Nvidia Maxwell Titans attached to it for the training, which is a level of resource I doubt I'll ever have), but it's a nice intro to the general technique.

Oh, and I fully expect this work to occasionally produce nightmare inducing failed decensors. If I get it off the ground, I'll make sure to post pictures.

I don't know if this was discussed earlier in the thread, but found a way to gain more money easily. Though I'm incline to believe that it might be some event bugs that happened. If your character is still at the Virgin status and you have the Ring of Transferance (switching from pussy to anal sex), then they're able to keep repeating the Virgin Auction Event in the last area many times for a good amount of money while still protecting their Virgin status. I've exploited this bug many times over, but wondered if that's also part of the gameplay or not.

Gameplay discussion should be in the gameplay thread. Although... That sounds like a bug.

(And incidentally, an easier exploit to get money is to make profit from making Honey and Lemon; the ingredients are cheap to buy, and the end result fairly valuable to sell; make 99 of them on each batch, and you turn a tidy profit, and this can be done very early in the game)

Re: Virgin's Protection Magic Translation (v 0.82 released 23/07/2017)

OK, another double post, but whatever. This week has been unexpectedly productive; I've managed to translate a whole bunch of H-scenes - I think I've only got a handful left to go (maybe 4 or 5, but one has a whole bunch of variations). Well, I suppose I've also got the endings (another 4 H-scenes), but those are to be translated last. In any case, it's looking good for me to get back onto story translations soon.

However, I've also hit a minor snag. I had wondered why there was some apparent Japanese gibberish which RPGMaker Trans wasn't grabbing in some of the lines. Well, it turns out a handful of dialogue has dialogue face pictures which are actually Japanese textual emoticons. Now, these look terribly out of place in the English translation (as in it looks like a handful of lines start with complete and total gibberish), so I'm going to replace them with proper Emoji. That should be less confusing, while still replicating the spirit of using an emoticon for a character portrait.

The snag is that I'm not 100% certain on what all of them mean. I think I've got three of them identified, but the fourth is... I have absolutely no idea what it means, to be honest. Some kind of... crowd of crying people, maybe?

Anyway, throwing this out there: could someone with more knowledge of Japanese emoticons double check the ones I've identified and perhaps hazard a guess at the final one? Here they are (possibly not using all the right symbols as I transcribed these from a low resolution picture).
