Today we release an updated version of Tsukihime English. Everyone is strongly encouraged to update their installation to v1.1 as it both solves and prevents several problems that were found in the first release. [Edit: Read the warning at the bottom of this post!] Most notably, we have received many reports of v1.0 freezing at random locations and with the help of Danj have traced it to the mp3 playback routines. We have therefore switched to using ogg files for the music instead of mp3, read chapter 7 of the readme for more details.
The new version also fixes several other small bugs and a large number of typos. The Tsukihime English v1.1 installer can be used both as a standalone installer and as an updater from v1.0. To update, simply run the installer and make sure it installs to the directory of your current Tsukihime English installation. You can download the file from our MediaFire mirror or through MEGA.
Note that the End User License Agreement has been updated to include a clause about modification or redistribution. Please read the EULA before agreeing to it.
Many thanks to everyone who reported bugs and script errors, we greatly appreciate it. Please use this thread (Archived) to report bugs in v1.1, and this thread (Archived) to report typos and other textual errors. I refer to the previous post for links to Yahoo! Japan Auction searches concerning Tsukihime and Tsukibako. We hope you continue enjoying Tsukihime English!
Warning! It appears that v1.1 breaks compatibility with the savegames from v1.0. Not all, but some of your savegames will crash the game the moment you reach the end of a script. If you encounter this problem, there currently are only two ways to solve this: Either you start from the beginning and use the ‘Skip parts previously read option’ (in the game options menu) to quickly skip to the part where you left off, or you reinstall v1.0 back and finish your route.
We are very sorry for this blunder, it would appear that we have understimated the stupidity of NScripter’s and ONScripter’s save algorithms. We will try to find a better solution for this problem, until then we recommend not to updated to v1.1 until you have finished a route and are ready to start the game from the beginning. Note that only the savegames themselves do not work, your settings and scores will transfer properly if you update (or downgrade).
