Little Busters! patch slides into home

The translation group working on Key’s all-ages game Little Busters! has announced that they have completed a translation patch (denoted version 6.0) for the entirety of the game. Furthermore, translation patches are available for the Ecstasy (18+ conversion with added content and new routes) and Memorial Edition (conversion from Ecstasy back to all-ages) versions of the game, although they are simply to translate the sections in those versions which correspond to the original version of the game; in that regard, some aspects in those versions are somewhat broken. The current major issue with this patch is the lack of word-wrapping, which the team hopes to fix in the future. They are also planning on translating the extra content in the Ecstasy and Memorial Edition versions once the translation team gets a rest.

    To be more precise, the EX and ME patches are meant to let you play the -original- game fully translated on EX/ME. Routes are fully translated if you patch those versions, however they are the original LB! routes. Only common route has some untranslated bits as the various minigames necessitated using ME/EX scripts with automated insertion for a smoother experience (anyone who previously tried to patch EX with the original scripts knows the reason).
    So the current ME/EX patches are something of a compromise, their only goal is to allow people with those versions to enjoy the full release as well.

    question: so is it alright for me to get “Little Busters! Ecstasy” from Palet to use with this patch? I won’t be missing anything from the original _all-ages_ release, the “extra” in Ecstasy will simply be missing?

    P.S. While jlist does have “Little Busters!”, they been insisting on using EMS for the last few days…. I have a big problem with the local EMS office and would rather no tolerate their staff again (they will open the package and then open the game in the full view of everyone!)

    You won’t be missing anything (besides Kinniku End), though there are still some minor beauty spots in the EX-compatible patch – we focused our efforts into making the routes and minigames fully playable on EX.

    What issues there still are will all eventually get fixed as well.

    thanks for the reply (and a bigger thanks for the translation). I’ll be ordering from Palet right away.
