Scarlet Weather Rhapsody English Patch v1.0

SWR English Patch

After several months of hard work by a group of dedicated translators, editors, and programmers, the English patch for Scarlet Weather Rhapsody is finally available! To download, just click on the image above or on either of the mirror links below.  Just make sure to have SWR itself updated to the latest current version (1.06); you can download the patch from Tasofro’s website here.

You can check out the official page for the English translation patch here.

Big thanks go out to mauve, Halbarad, Rotals Nartnona, _dk, Akira, TMN, and Mefidex for all their hard work on the patch!

    Even with the patch in the main folder, The English version of the game still did not work.All the files are in place(put the patch inside the folder so they won’t be somewhere else), Have the th05c and e but the English game does not work only the Japanese translated game works. I even ran the 106 update with the locale but still nothing. Need assistance.

Then the game crashed and i get another pop up message from the patch loader saying it could not hook into th105.exe ‘do you have a game guard or something? running. Please help ._.

    thanks (:

    Hi guys, I need help. I’ve got the same problem as most people above who say that it can’t hook into th105. I’ve moved all files from the tasofro patch folder into the parent folder, however the message still pops up and I’m unable to play in English. Any advice on what to do now? Thanks!

    I spent 15min trying to get it to work and now it works for me. Here’s what I did:

    Running Win7
    1: Download the game and latest version (1.06)
    2: Download the patcher.
    3: Install the game.
    4: Right click the patcher>Properties>Compatibility>Windows XP (Service Pack 3) and then enable run program as administrator; Or for some reason you can’t change the compatibility like me (oddly mines was stuck on Windows Vista) then just checkmark the run as admin box and try again.
    5: Should work. At least it did for me.

    Good luck.

    I have a problem that is not fixed by any of the methods listed as of yet on this page. When I try to boot up the English patch, nothing happens. The mouse cursor changes to show that it’s loading, but nothing comes up. The original works just fine, so, as far as I know, all of the necessary files are in place. If I could get some help, that’d be great. Thanks!

    Hello there, today I patched my copy of SWR to v1.06, than I tried to apply the English Patch and got this message: Output folder: C:\Program Files\tasofro\th105
    Can’t write: C:\Program Files\tasofro\th105\th105e.exe

    What do I need to do to fix these problems and properly patch my game. Also I do hope patching from v1.0 to v1.06 is not the problem here.

    if you can’t run th105e.exe (but can run th105.exe), try changing your system locale to Japanese and try to reinstall SWR + patches, etc.

    same solution for IaMP th075e.exe… I think?

    Uh, is there a custom.exe file for Touhou 10.5? Because the 640 x 480 windowed version I play currently can’t be made into HD if I put it on YouTube, and I can’t record full screen… is there any way to get its size to 1280 x 960, or anything of the sort?

    My game seems to patch successfully but when I try to run it it does not open. If I open task manager I can see the process start, along with the Windows error reporting process, then they both close a few minutes later. The unpatched game still runs fine, so I guess I’ll be using that until I can figure out what’s wrong.

    I’m noticing that no one has posted any issues for a week or so, I want to state my problem and hopefully get some guidance.

    I’m on Windows 7, I have PLENTY of free space. I have installed the 1.06 Patch, and I have downloaded and installed the English Patch. I have moved th105.dat and .exe from the th105 folder created by the patcher into the Scarlet Weather Rhapsody folder, which contains the original th105.exe and the other files.

    When I attempt to run the English Patch, I get through the installation process to the end, and the window tells me it completed successfully. It creates new icons, on of which is “TH105e.exe”. When I click this, I get a blue ring (the Win7 equivalent to an hourglass) which stays for about eight seconds, then disappears.

    When I check the processes tab under Task Manager, it shows that th105 is running, but then it abruptly closes itself without displaying any error message.

    I have tried running as administrator, changing the compatability, and reinstalling from a different download source.

    I would like to reiterate that ALL patches install without a hitch, and I get NO errors whatsoever.

    The Japanese version works fine, but the English Patched version simply will not open.

    I have tried using RUN and New Task and the rest, nothing works.
    I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling the whole shabang, no difference.

    Also, ‘wala’ is spelled ‘viola’.

    OH, I forgot to add, I have CenturyLink security, I have checked through it’s block roster, and none of my Virus programs are preventing the English TH105 from opening.

    Upon further reflection of the Characters list…
    I’m sort of glad they didn’t include Flandre, because she would have turned out two ways:

    1) If they had been true to her character, Flandre would completely break the game, since she’d be able to kill any enemy just by moving her right hand.

    2) If they had nerfed her for the game, it would have been vaguely insulting to us Flan-Chan fans, and her non-indestructibility would have ended up ruining her as a fighter.

    I have the same problem as @170.
    The only link that works is the patcher’s link to 1.6. None of the English patch links work, they either 404 or aren’t found.

    Broken links =\
    Same as @170 and @172.
    I’ve got the 1.06 patch jap version working fine, but I can’t find any downloads for the SWR english patch. Could you please provide another download link, or just a way to obtain the patch? >.<
