![BetterRepack R8](https://imagizer.imageshack.com/img924/8058/BKnsaO.png "BetterRepack R8") # Release 8 // 23.06.2019 This release contains Koikatsu Darkness (Part 1 through 3). As normal, this expansion has broken quite a few mods, most of them have been fixed, but if you REALLY need the following mods, you might want to download my R6.1 pack (~.~)v ### Mods removed due to incompatibilities with Darkness VMDPlay v0.0.13 ### Information about the R7.1 to R8 updater (Added to my discord and shared on hongfire as well) *Affected versions: R7.1 to R8 Update* I have received two reports, both from users of Malwarebytes, that they get warned that the file contains ransomware. My best guess at what's going on here, is that the updater is touching a LOT of files (7789 files, where 1408 of them are file diff patchings, Lots of files in the party translation), and Malwarebytes sees that as a executable changing the content of 7789 files and makes a ruling that it's more than a little suspicious, and thusly gives a warning to the end user, and that also explains the seemingly random point when this "malware" is detected. Now, this causes a dilemma for me, I do not want, nor believe, that you should take my word for it. I request that anyone with knowledge about such things perform their own third party check and not take my word for it. For the rest of you, if you want to stay safe, I understand it if you'd rather not touch a file known to get warnings, false positive or not. The full pack download has no such warning, so feel free to use that if you'd rather do so. I am looking into alternative ways to build my updaters to avoid this going forward as well. If you know a good way to build patchers that avoids this problem, please to tell me ### Translations This release contains translations from Koikatsu Party. I spent a lot of time getting it working properly, and I believe it now does so, but please tell me if you experience trouble with it. Do take note that Koikatsu Party only includes the first game with no expansions, so expansion content is still fantranslated and some is machine translated still.

Thanks for the good work as always!
Thanks Dear splendid and clean work as always.
Amazing work, and with such efficiency! I was surprised that a few hours ago I was asking for an ETA, haha. You rock!
Oh, by the way. The translations are working on the school, but on the Free H Mode I'm still get machine translation on the subtitles. Am I doing something wrong, or is that a bug?

### Everyone Thanks, do enjoy the pack =D ### torraske Koikatsu Party does not include subtitles at all, so those are pretty much all machine TL unfortunately. It's possible to disable them if you'd rather do without, but there's currently no available subtitle translation.
many thanks, was waiting for this
Thanks again dood!
Two questions. 1. What are the differences between this version and the last with the "Darkness" changes? This is supposed to include part 3 but I didn't see any new positions or changes. It looks just like the version which included part 2. 2. I know your other recent upload with the "Party" expansion requires the base game, but how do I install / add / incorporate it into the stand alone game? I have no idea how to use it / add it.

### nincow 1. New clothing, two new personalities for darkness and possibly some studio animations. 2. The party pack is for just extracting to the game install dir of the steam game and replace all files. Do take not that you should not apply this pack to the steam version. And this, the Japanese version, includes the base game.
I seem to be having issues on my end. Everytime I start up any game, the characters are all fucked up and glitchy. I'm not sure if certain textures are corrupted or if its a character card issue, but I haven't messed with ANY files or folders, and I didn't add or remove anything. I simply downloaded this and started the game to make sure things worked. Here's a couple pics of what I'm talking about. https://imgur.com/a/svIaAz4 I had the exact same problem with the 7.1 Repack. Again, no files or folders were changed when I downloaded that version. If anyone can help with this problem, it would be greatly appreciated.
Hey i have 1 question pls I downlead this ver but do i have to update it with koikatu_02plus_cdp0201hbtks_all or there's no need for that?
The updater from 7.1 to 8.0 had a ransomware detected in it during the later stages of unpacking of the .exe. Take care.

### yesman I don't really know what's up for you there... I'd try to update GPU drivers, and if that fails, do take a peek over at the discord and ask for help there ### LoliSenpai All updates are preapplied, so no further patching should be nessecary. ### Citical That's a false positive... The reason it happens to this particilar update is likely because it patches a LOT of files this time around for the Party translation... Unfortunately I can't exactly sign the updater to avoid this... (Updater touches 7789 files, where 1408 of them are file diff patchings) What AV are you using? I got another user saying that one AV marked it as a false positive Here is the updater script if you're curious: https://pastebin.com/tzKYgDJ7 And this is the patcher itself: https://github.com/loyso/Scarab If you want, I don't mind sharing the diff files as well in a zip, don't really do anything for anyone though...

### Information added to my discord: **I'm running Malwarebytes and am getting warned about ransomware at seemingly random times when using the R7.1 update to R8, why?** *Affected versions: R7.1 to R8 Update* I have received two reports, both from users of Malwarebytes, that they get warned that the file contains ransomware. My best guess at what's going on here, is that the updater is touching a LOT of files (7789 files, where 1408 of them are file diff patchings, Lots of files in the party translation), and Malwarebytes sees that as a executable changing the content of 7789 files and makes a ruling that it's more than a little suspicious, and thusly gives a warning to the end user, and that also explains the seemingly random point when this "malware" is detected.

In version 8 in the H-scenes there is no English at all. All conversations in Japanese. English is only in common dialogues. At the same time, in version 7.1, English was everywhere except for some minor points (in some dialogs the text was not fully translated) Is there any way to fix the lack of translation in version 8?
hey i followed the exact instructions but when i launched my game the screen was just black and all i could see was the cursor

### Ric Subtitles aren't improved... simply due to Koikatsu Party not having subtitles, thus there's no subtitle translations to rip. ### Corpsewalker Try to update your GPU driver if you haven't already, if that doesn't work for you, I'd recommend you visit the fandiscord, https://universalhentai.com, and ask for help in the help channel there. Make sure you have your "koikatu_data/output_log.txt" file handy to speed along the help process :)

screwthisnoise I checked again. Translation in h scenes is. Probably depends on the type of character. But the strange thing is that during the previous launch of the game the text was completely Japanese in the h scenes. When restart the text has become normal. The translation has become better, but in some places there are strange questions and answers (for example, to the question how many children would you like to have an answer related to the growth of the girl) In any case, thank you very much for your work and prompt communication with users.

### Ric I'll be trying to figure out what happens with the TL for 8.1... I spent 3 days trying to get the translation work properly, so there might be something fun going on still. 😆
Hello, can you help me with something?, i downloaded your release of koikatsu R6, what do you recommend me to do to upgrade to this R8 version?. thanks.
ilducesaint - You don't. You download R8.
>Translations This release contains translations from Koikatsu Party. I spent a lot of time getting it working properly, and I believe it now does so, but please tell me if you experience trouble with it. Do take note that Koikatsu Party only includes the first game with no expansions, so expansion content is still fantranslated and some is machine translated still. I just compared the Translations from Koikatsu Party to this release.. and its completely different.. Are you sure you ported over the TLs from the party Properly? Also all dialogue choices in this release use MTL.., in Party all choices are already Translated.. so you definitely messed something up.. also the opening sequence dialogue if from the FanTL version and not from Party

### Wildbreed I compared the OP to party 1v1, but seems both TLs are in there... I don't really know how to address this without manually going through everything, but I'm looking into a way to improve it... dumping text from Party weren't a perfect 1 to 1 translation to the autoTL from Illusions localize method >.< Thank you for the feedback, hopefully I'll be able to address it :) ### ilducesaint as nincow said, you're best off downloading the full pack, and just moving the userdata from your R6 pack over. R6 is quite outdated at this point.

yesterday, after installed I can connect download characters section but after I uninstall translation patch it can't not connect download characters section. I try to reinstall full game but still can't connect. I heard they block IP non-JP but why yesterday I can connect and download them?

### Wildbreed Yes, I do believe the problem comes in the next step, applying the fantranslation so that the rest is translated (expansion content and such... I suspect duplicate entries). I'll compare this rip to my own though and see if mine has any problems from the get-go, so nice to have an alternative available. Thanks =D ### pandoramon The one included in my pack is a unofficial one, so you shouldn't be having trouble connecting using a non-JP IP. It is however slightly unstable and prone to going offline from time to time, nothing much I can do with that I'm afraid... I just gave loading the downloader a go, and it's working at the time of writing for me at least.
guys, I want to know if anyone else have this problem. since R7, while playing, randomly when some girl talk to me, the game screen goes black. and I can't see a thing, but the game appears to keep running, I can click things and they react, but objectively all i can do is close the game. (btw r6 still works no problem.)

### shimapan A lot has happened since the R6 pack, so can be a lot. Best bet is to take your 'Koikatu_Data/output_log.txt' and pay a visit to the help channel on the koikatsu discord.👍
I'd like to reiterate our appreciation on your work on this. It sounds like it has been quite the pain in the neck to get everything working together.
I'm not getting any translation at all in Free H. Is it limited to some characters stereotypes? Do I need to turn something on? Couldn't find anything wrong in the plugin settings...
So just to clarify, is it best to use the file provided by Wildbreed for the translation or is that going to cause problems?
