MegaMari English Patch 1.0 Ready!


It’s a bit slow on the patch front for the time being while we wait for UFO and SWR, so MegaMari turned up as a “why not”?

Click on the image or this link to download the installer.

Thanks go to mauve and Mr_Alert for coding, Akira and zalas for translation, and Kilgamayan for testing.

    “Can’t get all cocky just because it’s Cirno.” Yeah, really… D: *can’t get past that stage DX (although to be fair, it’s the only one that I’ve tried, and I haven’t played the game very much)*

    fruant: Can’t forget about the PC-98 games (sans HRtP, since it’s already patched), either… T__T

    Prepare to die alot, especially with Youmu’s Hakugyokoro + Higan stage, maybe Eirin’s Eientei stage and Yukari-sama’s stage. I think Cirno’s stage is one of the easier stages barring one adorable Spring Fairy and the last quarter of the stage.

    >so MegaMari turned up as a “why not”?

    Can’t figure out what story is there to translate, so i gess that’s good reasoning.

    Never really noticed the description at the bottom left and I’ve been having the game for a good 2+ years

  14. Herasy

    Apparently PoFV translation is nearly complete.

    At least, that’s what I last heard anyway.

    >Can’t figure out what story is there to translate, so i gess that’s good reasoning.

    No, it’s the opposite. If there isn’t a lot to translate, then you can translate it quickly, allowing you to maximize the number of games translated.

    It’s not like there was a real choice between translating Megamari and Scarlet Weather Rhapsody. Translating SWR must take a hundred times more time than MM so even if they had skipped MM entirely, all you would have gotten is SWR maybe a day earlier.

    @Stalker Fairy:
    Don’t even get me started on Eirin’s stage. All those damn pits and rabbits and…ugh…huge pain. Sakuya’s stage is a pain too if you’re bad at timing your jumps. And yeah, I killed Lily White every time I saw her – she makes things so much harder that it’s worth killing her just to make the jumps easier.

    So, I nominate Touhou Battle Gaiden as the next random game to be translated.

    >It’s a bit slow on the patch front for the time being while we wait for UFO and SWR,

    Aw, no PoFV on the horizon? That’s the game I’ve wanted translations for the most.;_;

  18. May 13th, 2009 | 3:35 pm

    if only I had the game.

  19. qazmlpok

    The PoFV translation is almost complete. According to the thread, all that is remaining is getting the ending translations and inserting them.
    On that note, StB is also almost complete. Might even be released today, according to the thread.

    >So, I nominate Touhou Battle Gaiden as the next random game to be translated.
    MariAri is superior.

  20. May 14th, 2009 | 1:46 pm

    Hey, someone from Poolshmer found this on /jp/. Affiliated with you guys or something else?

    I can’t tell from the names in the readme orz

  21. jbrennan
    May 14th, 2009 | 2:18 pm


    That one? That’s not even Tetris!

    @Masked Man: A quick Google or /rs/ search will find it for you – that’s how I got mine (deleted the original file ages ago, so I had to re-download it).

  22. Spooty
    May 15th, 2009 | 12:01 pm

    “UFO and SWR”

    Can’t even wait for the full version of UFO to come out? And what about PoFV and StB?

  23. Spooty
    May 16th, 2009 | 2:32 am

    Hmm, I came off sounding kinda nagging in that last post. Oops. >_>

    Anyway, playing through Megamari now. Definitely doesn’t compare to the original Megaman series (sorry, but it doesn’t), but it’s a good game for what it’s worth. :)

  24. May 16th, 2009 | 11:27 pm

    Megamari much more harder than megaman >.<

  25. Sylum
    May 17th, 2009 | 2:11 pm

    Having played megamari a few times, I would say for people who want a good run to go in this order: sakuya(alice powerup), cirno (either), Reimu (marisa), Remilia (alice), Youmu (alice… god that skill is broken), Reisen (either), Eirin (either), yuyuko (alice), yah that doesn’t go in order of weakness, but the powerup from sakuya helps on every stage, and reimu’s also helps alot, + cirno is just plain easy.

    May 17th, 2009 | 4:28 pm

    …….huh, I’m getting an error when I try to patch the game. I wonder why….

  27. acabaca
    May 20th, 2009 | 3:16 am

    Why would you want to take Sakuya’s weapon with Alice when Marisa gets that incredibly useful time stop-smart bomb that one-hits any non-boss enemy?

    I shall give my greatest appreciation to the patchers

    Nobody is replying… this leaves me to assume one of many possibilities…

    1.) Nobody WANTS to tell me whats wrong, thus being a jerk. (I hope its not this one)

    2.) Nobody else has this problem, which leads me to believe that the patch ISNT complete, and the people of lied, as well as the people posting comments saying theyre playing it are lying.

    3.) Nobody is visiting this part of the website, which leads me to wonder why they arent…

    Well, anyways, I posted what the error was up there or something… please tell me what it is that I need to do to play this game and Animism.

    Hopefully you guys will work on the english patch for Scarlet Weather Rhapsody. (my first Touhou game to be exact)

  32. Gabe Puratekuta
    May 27th, 2009 | 2:22 pm

    @Zeke: I know! I’m getting a different error, but they’re doing the exact same thing to me (mine is currently “Error patching file: Megamari.exe” and was “d3dx9_25.dll not found” the first two time I tried it)

    > sakuya(alice powerup), Reimu (marisa), Remilia (alice), Youmu (alice)
    Damnit, apparently I picked the wrong character on every opportunity, and now I have no clue how to defeat Eirin, other than to play the whole thing again.

  34. Stalker Fairy
    May 28th, 2009 | 3:36 am

    @ ultramage

    Here’s a hint: what is medicine’s greatest enemy? The one thing that it can’t cure completely? The one disease that’s constantly evolving? This logic applies to Eirin. If Eirin’s the medicine, what is one thing she can’t cure?

    Just in case you can’t get the first hint, here’s another: you see that picture at the top of this topic, the one with the MegaMari patch example? The boss highlted there is Eirin’s weakness.

  35. Zeke
    May 28th, 2009 | 3:28 pm

    Ok… apparently, you gotta download the original japanese version before you can patch it… Im a (9)…

    Anyways, Im more of a (9) now cause I been trying for 2 days, but I cant even complete a stage as easy as Cirno’s!

    PS, a hint… Patchouli is rumored to be a vampire right? Whats the key for beating a vampire? A cross! Try it out on the password screen, you might like it… just dont fill the entire thing with the mushrooms, you get the last stage with nothing BUT the broom…

  36. Gabe Puratekuta
    May 28th, 2009 | 4:13 pm

    Well, I don’t know what the problem is for me. Since I got the game from a torrent and there was no indication of there being more to it other than what’s in this one zip file….

  37. May 31st, 2009 | 6:24 am

    >> Gabe Puratekuta

    Update the DirectX on your computer. Just go to Microsoft’s site and search for DirectX – the web installer there should install all the files you need.

  38. Gabe Puratekuta
    May 31st, 2009 | 1:27 pm

    Yeah, it didn’t help <.<

    @ Gabe

    run a search on d3dx9_25.dll. You SHOULD find a download link at a dll site or something. Just stick that in the main folder with megamari and viola!

  42. Maserable
    October 16th, 2009 | 11:47 pm

    Well, I’ve tried it and it works nicely… ^^

    @Gabe Puratekuta
    umm… I don’t know. Why don’t you copy the files before and changing the directory first? It works with me… ^^
