Subterranean Animism English Patch v1.00

Tada~

It’s taken us… actually not all that long to get here, but we’ve completed the English patch for Subterranean Animism! Click on the image above to download the file, then install away! Read on for a few patch notes.

NOTE: The patch has been updated to 1.00a; if you’ve had issues with the game locking up with a black screen on startup, download the latest version of the patch and reinstall. This update also fixes a translation error in Ending No. 03.

NOTE 2: The MoF patch has also been updated with the same black screen fix; if you’re having the same issue with it, redownload the patch from the original post or from here.

Thanks go out to bofh, Mr_Alert, Halbarad, Mefidex, SirAlex, Ars, and more for all the hard work they’ve put in to make this possible.

Notes:

– Spellcard names in the player data screen will appear as mojibake until the card has been played once on the English patched version of the game, then should appear normally.

– You may want to back up your scoreth11.dat file before installing the patch, in case you encounter any problems. Please remember that due to a bug in the game, SA re-locks the Extra stage for a character if an Easy difficulty run is completed with them. Simply completing the game again on Normal or higher should reopen it.

– Please report any bugs in a comment to this post or in the MotK topic here.

    Any kind of solution would be highly apreciated.

    @Bob: this has nothing to do with your pc. it means that there’s a file either missing or corrupt, reinstalling touhou would probably fix that.

    Very nice patch, now i finally know that the dialogues are about ^^

    Error: Error patching/extracting file(s).
    3 file(s) affected.

    I can see that several other people are having this problem and I didn’t find a single answer on the internet apart from “Try reinstalling” or “Are you sure you’re patching the right folder”

    I just downloaded the whole thing from Gensokyo and deleted my old folder (Because there doesn’t seem to be updates for this one like there are for some other games), and I still got the same error.

    Please someone help, I would enjoy being able to play SA in english

    If you’re having the “Error: Error patching/extracting file(s). 3 file(s) affected.” error that says that your custom.exe and th11.exe are missing (the error people have previously posted having with the frog image), it’s possible that you are making the same mistake I was. My dl of the game came in a folder labled “Touhou11 – Subterranean Animism (With English Patch 1.00a)”. Inside that folder was the patch and another folder titled “Touhou 11 Subterranean Animism”, which, of course, held the game. Turns out, to solve the problem I was having you need to move the patch into the second folder (labeled “Touhou 11 Subterranean Animism”) with the th11.exe file and then try to patch. Note: It doesn’t matter that you can browse and select the folder with the th11.exe file in the patch application itself, if the two files are not in the exact same folder, you will get the missing files error that I did.

    Perhaps this was a really obvious solution to some people, but I don’t have a lot of technological expertise so I typically assume that everything’s where it needs to be when I download something. Still, I felt really stupid when I realized that was all I had to fix the error. >>; Anyways, hopefully this will help someone like me.

    If anyone has problems after the patch has installed with the game blacking out after being opened, if you take the font file and manually copy/move it into the windows font folder, it will force install it and it will then work. Hope this helps anyone :)

    Hey Some Anon TH Fan i think i got the same problem as you have…
    Severe slowing down of the game even with 1/3 frameskip.
    I got the latest DirectX, i got a 3 GHz pentium 4 and 1.43GB ram cpu and a VIA/S3G graphic card.
    Can anyone please tell me how do i get SA and UFO running at normal graphics and framerate?

    When I attempt to play the game, an error box shows up saying: “This application has failed to start because d3dx9_37.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem.” I’ve already tried reinstalling it, but I have come across the same message. Help…?
