    Ok im Hoping the don’t change it all for the full game,
    Tried the game but I have the worst luck in picking answer if it’s wrong I will most likely pick it.
    But isn’t VH2 finished?

    • VH2 was missing a lot of image editing, and someone offered to do all that for me. He’s actually done all the images except for the trash mob encyclopedia entries, which I still need to translate and send to him.

        how do you download from mega.co.nz. please tell me i don’t need extra software to download from it. anonfiles is down or something

      • you don’t need a file downloader for mega.co.nz although you may need to signup and log in to download(im always logged in so not sure). Also your country/network may block mega in which case you should look into bypassing the block(google it).

    SMMG fascinates me more too.. but I will stay openminded for paradox
    (tho I hope it has less gore and is more like the earlier MGQ .. the third one was way to bizarre for me =/ )

    Have you ever considered writing to the corpses that tried to translate SMMG before you?
    Maybe you could get text to salvage – or do you prefer to do your own translation without any
    “guest-translators”?

    Anyways.. keep being great 😀

    I’m interested in both, but Paradox a little more, cause it’s MGQ of course lol.. whart I saw when I played the Demo, confused the hell out of me, is it going to be an alternate universe or continue from 3.. or what..

      A bit of both. From most characters’ perspectives, the game starts where the first game started. Luka is about to be baptised and set off on his journey. There are a few events revealed that are different than the first game and several characters are aware of what happened in some of the previous games.

    > I want to get all the VH2 encyclopedia entries translated so I can finally call that one 100%
    Did you do the same with VH1?

    When it comes to games Story is most for me but with story there must be character that are well made they don’t have to be likeable or important but it’s fun when they leave a lastin impression I still today remeber many of the Old Rpg game character.
    Gameplay is both important and not for me i like it when there is some measure of skill in it from tactical skill or good judgement in it, but in Lvl games is also fun to be a bit overpowered sometimes and just beat the crap out of annoying enemies.

      There isn’t a cooking system in the demo, but there is a good chance there will be later. If you go to the right of the village chief (the guy that can change your class), you’ll find a room that is full of people of different classes, each of which will give a summary of their class when asked. On the middle table of the bottom row you’ll find a purple-haired guy who will describe the chef class, saying that they hunt the ultimate taste. My guess is that when this class is implemented then you’ll be able to somehow use the cooking materials in order to do battle.

    I just realised they said there was about 550 monsters in it. So i checked MGQ and i counted less than 250 did not count duplicates but did count forms and came about to 232. “Damn” Will you do this alone or is there someone you could cooperate with Like you did with Rouge?

  7. zionchar11

    It’s ok dargoth take your time man~~ we know this is not an easy task so be sure not to stress yourself alright?? if you drop sick or something things will go much slowly. Most of your fans understand this and we can wait.

    How do you get the h-scene for the pink-haired girl in the starter village? She has different dialogue
    after and before you get Illias/Alice but none of it activates the h-scene.

  9. Anonymous

    Hey Dargoth, this is kind of out of place, but I notice that you use the adjective “oppressive” a lot. It bothers me just a little bit because that generally refers to racial minorities getting put down. Maybe you could use “constricted” or “restrictive”, I think those would probably fit better. Sorry for the nit-pick, I really appreciate the work you put in. Thanks.

    • Anonymous

      That is the furthest in the main story you can get. Dialogue indicates that you are searching for Amira in the town, but she has been kidnapped by the four bandits. The caves in the mountain are not part of the demo, however.

      The key unlocks the door on the second floor of the Ilias temple, which seems to allow you to change difficulty and replay boss battles. There is also a side quest to unlock the merchant class and the ability to unlock the soldier class that you may have missed.

      • Anonymous

        Yay! I got all that. On another note, I saw a list of CGs on v/ and it had a trio scene. Is that unlockable or was I just trolled?

    Its ok Dragoth, I can wait, ive been waiting for the next chapter of daily life with monsters, Paradox might also looks like a fun game to play, so yea I can wait for a while. I bet you might even finish it by the end of the year or sometime next year, since you are working on many projects. If I could translate things in Japanese to English I would help. >.>

  11. Sonicdude8

    No worries, I’m sure you’ll get it done at some point. The fact that we know someone is translating it makes it all worth the wait.

  12. Sageofoblivion

    Do you think there will be a lvl cap in the actuall game like 33 or something as it’s a only 1out of 3 parts again.

  13. Sageofoblivion

    Lcl 10 is the cap so far but for jobs is that it or will there be more?
    Thought lvl 100 for jobs will be a bitch.

    • Anonymous

      lvl 10 is the cap for jobs and races. After reaching 10, you can upgrade to a higher rank (lvl.10 slime becomes lvl.1 mega slime, lvl.10 warrior becomes lvl.1 swordsman, ect. ect.), there will be different paths along the upgrade routes, so you could choose between Mega Slime, Healing Slime, Carnivorous Slime ect. ect. Some jobs can only be reached by maxing two different lower rank jobs, (warrior+mage=magic knight ect. ect.).

      This is how it’s described in the blog posts, anyway. There is no upgrading in the demo.

      • Anonymous

        Lvl 100 seems like overkill, but in my opinion they are going to up the job level cap a bit. My reason for thinking this is that you get unlock 1 as a thief to unlock blue chests, but in the castle next to a blue chest there are also a green and a silver chest waiting to be unlocked.

        Maybe they will introduce a bandit class or whatever for the more advanced lockpicking skills, but that’s practically the same as raising the job cap.

    hmm looks like the third part of that MGQ vore scenario thing is being released on Sept. 1st

    at least that is what Google translate told me, and it can never be wrong about a translation

    http://tokinokogiri.99ing.net/
    trial version seems to be hosted through that booth site thing that seems to be some kind of pixiv partnership site. haven’t really looked into it

    I’ll buy it, but i wont be beggin anybody for a translation. If i needed it that bad then i could always take the time to go ref/dictionary diving myself. Maybe that would get me out of this rut I’ve been in with my new job.

  15. Sageofoblivion

    If it’s no trouble could you put your progress on the translation page.
    It’s nice to see how it’s going along.
    Still no hurry, but I’m the kind of person who wants to know as much as possible without the spoilers.

    • I’ll come up with a good way to track progress for the final release, but for the demo, it’s more trouble than it’s worth. The files aren’t conveniently organized for counting lines.

      I’ll have the next patch out on Monday at the latest. So probably Monday, but maybe Sunday.

      • Sageofoblivion

        Really looking forward to that.
        Tested the beta for LQOO while waiting and it was fun.
        Found it Ironic that 2 rpgmaker games I have looked forwar to came with demos the same month but as for contents they are opposites.
        Have you tested the Legend of Queen Opala games Dargoth?

      • Sageofoblivion

        Any problems?
        Seems like the whole internet has had problems with uploading and downloading this weekend.
        You said you would translate the main stuff but not the unimportant NPC but what do you classify as an unimportant NPC? Because some of them will give you instructions and tips.
        Or is it just the chatty ones?

        • I’ll translate everything, don’t get me wrong. For the next patch, I’ve been focusing on NPCs with portraits and ones that trigger conversations with party members. So Lazarus is translated, random guy standing around town isn’t yet. The “tutorial” NPCs in the temple are going to have to wait too.

          Oh, yeah there was a problem. That unexpected demo patch took hours to sort out. There were a lot of changes, some of which wiped out portions of already translated content (e.g., interface stuff, the castle maid).

      • Sageofoblivion

        Oh so the trigger ones are important I was wondering about that.
        Shame about the temple but I can wait.
        Also What about object like the bookshelf or graves?

      • Bookshelves and graves are done. Lazarus’s house alone has something like 6 objects you can interact with for conversations. Lots of conversations depend on your party members too. Examining the stuffed bear in Sonya’s house gets you a conversation with Ilias, talking to the guard in front of the inn gets you a conversation with Alice. Talking to Hans with the bunny slime or bringing the earthworm girl to Lucifina’s grave both have conversations too.

        Suffice to say, there’s a lot of hidden text in the game. I don’t know if Torotoro put extra effort into Iliasville, but if all the towns are like this, it’s going to be pretty crazy. You get funny dialogue from things like trying to feed Alice rocks and beetles as presents too.

      • Sageofoblivion

        I noticed that played some of the game to get a feel for it and made it to the next town.
        Thought I can understand that with the new patch that it took a bit to adjust.
        Haven’t tested it yet but I read that the cluster of menues in battle are fixed now thank god.
        To tell the truth It’s been hard to wait at first but I got some other ganes that can act as an distraction.
        Can wait even more because I want quality

  16. Dargoth go inside a team, either make one or join one. Probably the latter because starting new teams is a pain and there’s already good teams out there. Individual effort is exhausting and being in a translation project group will make things easier. You can head your own translations and recruit your own team by translation members with the same interest but first you need to join the community of translators. We could use independents like you. I’m just saying… I first noticed you after MGQ and surprised you were doing this all by yourself. For example you could sign up on our forums and we’ll rank you up there as a translator with links to your blog.

    • Well I certainly can’t turn down that invitation. I’ve put out feelers for translation help before and gotten nothing more than “I don’t know any Japanese, but I can use Google translate and guess!” Fuwanovel has a place for translators to offer their services, but the majority of people don’t want to work on eroge, especially not niche femdom monster girl stuff…

      • Sageofoblivion

        That’s a shame
        When i see the jobs they have diffrent stats for HP, MP and all other basics does the job affect stats for job LVL or Real LVL?

      • Clockwork

        Anything technical that I can help with?
        I can’t translate, but when it comes to computers, I’m pretty handy.

  17. Christopher Carter

    I’m waiting for the choices to be translated, hard to know if you are making good choices when random guessing lol

  18. Sageofoblivion

    Seems like there is a new modified demo to fix bugs and some of the system and changes to so character systems and LVL.
    Will it affect you?

  19. just wanna say,
    do what you gonna do..

    regardless everything everyone said, many eyes are upon you, dargoth. you can take pride of what you’ve done..

    as for me, it’s nice having something worth to wait..

    keep up the good work. and the most important, keep your mind and body healthy 🙂

    Does anybody know what exactly “Jobs” are in game?.

    are they the classes you can pick by that priest guy?.
    or are they side quests or somthing?.

  21. Sageofoblivion

    both you get some natural,others throught quests and some are hidden.
    They give you skills, abilities and seems to also effect your stats.

    Hey Dargoth! I really hope that you will find the time to translate Dinner to complete the trilogy of Breakfast Lunch Dinner. The vore community loves these and would be very thankful!

    • I hope I find time to translate it too. Toki was excited that I translated the first two, which is a big contrast from the usual attitude towards foreigners from Japanese game/VN creators. (All I got from Torotoro was a “girigiri” which was hardly enthusiastic.)

    • edale

      Check out the MGQ3D forums: http://ntelliware.freeforums.org/index.php plenty of renders of character models, so you can see the style being used for it, Ntelliware went with more realistic looking, over more anime looking, models; just check the concept art thread.

      There is a beta on the main website (ntelliware.com), but it’s out of date, as Ntelliware is currently doing a complete top-to-bottom overhaul of the coding and maps and…well pretty much everything. He’s doing that to take everything he’s learned since starting, and applying it to the earlier parts of the project (which of course leads to needing to redo the newer code, as it was built on the older code) as well as streamlining everything to increase FPS (the Luka model had over 100,000 polygons originally….he got it down to like 3000 or so if I recall). There’s a video preview of the changes at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ByZuNejq_wQ

      Keep your eyes on the forums, because once Ntelliware finished the recode, he’ll be releasing another beta before the full demo is released.

      It’s had mixed reviews in the MGQ community, but Ntelliware’s been pretty successful in changing the minds of some of the detractors (who’s biggest and loudest complaint was that Ntelliware did a kickstarter for it, when he’s never made a game before).

    • Anonymous

      Had this been a stand-alone thing then maybe I could tolerate the appearances of the characters. It’s just not the same when I’ve come to know the characters based on how they are depicted in Torotoro’s MGQ. Making it 3D just makes the disparity that much more obvious.

    it’s stated in the demo that some H scene are locked? is this true for the current monsters?.

    because i did notice not all CG scenes from the imps are in there or do the CG defeat scenes differ from the friendship scenes?.

    • Anonymous

      Yes. There are scenes that are just not available at all in the demo.
      They are all request scenes in the castle though, the enemy defeats are all there.

    What is going on? Didn’t you say a couple of comments back that the translation would be out monday at the latest Dargoth? Did some unexpected roadblock appear or something?

      • Yes. My fault for giving a date. Never a good idea when 1) you don’t know the full extent of work required, and 2) other people can increase your workload unexpectedly.

      • edale

        Yea, this post structure isn’t exactly ideal for making a timeline of the posts…given there’s no post time data, and no organization…

  25. Thorben

    It’s not just one, I’d like to see updates for SMMG, too. ^-^”

    The title also has been recommended to Mangagamer to be officially translated.
    If they will pick it up, or not is of course an entirely different matter.

  26. DarkDrakir

    Hi!
    ive read your earlier post on this matter and i know how much work you have to go through, just want you to know that i appreciate all that you do and i cant wait to play Sei Monmusu Gakuen either.

    Just found the game yesterday and it works just fine, im studying japanese just in order to play these games (still a newbie though..) so dont hesitate to ask me for help in the future. I might be able to assist 🙂

      • CivilDeviation

        SMMG is dropped iirc; look through Dargoth’s comments about a year ago. I get it that a few folks want it, but please stop necroing the idea that it will get done. Can’t get to truth without acceptance of facts.

        • @CivilDeviation
          No. Never. We must keep hope alive. My penis refuses to accept. No surrender! Some day. One day. Even if it takes 50 years. I’ll wait. Patiently. It will come. I know it.

        • Civildeviation

          Dah!?!?! Rationalization and denial neither of which are mature defense mechanisms for dealing with this. I know SMMG being dropped by Dargoth was cause for existential crisis but if you accept the anxiety of him not picking it back up; you’ll be able to find new meaning in your life!

        • @CivilDeviation
          Nonsense! There is no greater meaning than monster girls. Only a madman would think otherwise. One must always live in hope of porn, never accept its loss. It is the one true holy thing that matters in life. It is our savior, and our destroyer. Praise be unto the Hentai Gods.
