Wow! I didn't even know someone is translating this vn (still hoping to get a Yoake Mae EngPatch one day)
Very, very mch appreciated!


Too bad the partial patch doesn't include even a single route, so there's no point in reading the VN just yet  :(

I've been waiting for this project to finish for years.  It's kind of cursed, since it's stalled so many times already.  Perhaps my hopes won't be wasted afterall.
Title: Re: [H-VN][Partial English] Fortune Arterial
Post by: Geckoey Lurker on April 14, 2012, 05:42:38 am
I'll respect their tenacity for keeping on translating it after 4 years, but sometimes I wonder if it wouldn't have just been better to put the VN down and have another team take it over. Well, hopefully we'll see the end of it someday.

Post by: KoutoutekiSonzai on April 14, 2012, 07:04:13 am
Unfortunately, I doubt anybody else would have picked it up if it was dropped.  It only became well known after the anime came out and, now that the anime is finished, it will probably fall into obscurity again given enough time.

I found the anime while browsing yesterday, and I was like, "That sounds familiar."  So I looked back and said, "Oh right, I saw the Visual Novel on Kureha-One".   Now that I've watched the anime I -really- hope they finish this, I want more of the story.

Havent they made very big progress over the past month or so?
Title: Re: [H-VN][Partial English] Fortune Arterial
Post by: KoutoutekiSonzai on May 02, 2012, 08:26:05 am
Yes, they have made good progress editing wise over the last month.  Like 10% editing a week wise, but the translation hasn't moved.  If I were to guess, I'd say that they want to give us a partial with Kiriha's route finished as soon as possible.  I could be wrong though.
Title: Re: [H-VN][Partial English] Fortune Arterial
Post by: FadedAce on May 04, 2012, 10:23:13 am
It wasn't that I was saying they were not making progress.   I checked the site and saw that the editing is close to done on Kiriha's route, which is awesome.   Really looking forward to playing through it, but I've seen a lot of translation teams end up dropping awesome games for one reason or another.   So it was more just voicing my hope that it doesn't get dropped more than saying that I had any suspicions that this particular game would be.

Best hope for this project as well. I think August's stuffs are cursed or something. Crescent Love was done with translation for like a year ago but suddenly all the editors dropped from the face of earth. I think it's getting edited now but it's a snail pace. Yandere picked up Eustia, they're usually pretty good with keeping up with the project, but after one year it's officially on life support. And of course Fortune Arterial that has been picked up and dropped a few times.

I just really wish one of these reach the finishing line. Since they merged with a scantranslation group I hope their prospective is better this time >.<

Post by: Geckoey Lurker on May 07, 2012, 01:17:44 am
Crescent Love..
I don't know when that was last updated but :
Translation: 100%
Editing: 26%
QC: 13%
Engineering: 95%
Image editing: 15%
Do agree this is quite deceiving. Make wonder if the translation was that bad or if their editors were really slacky.

Eustia is still missing a translator? That's not good.. In those times I wish I started learning Japanese years ago.

I have good hope for Fortune Arterial too. Things seems to be progressing smoothly now, from what I last saw anyway.

Oh Edger (the translator) is what I would call a miracle worker. He was the one translated Canvas 2 and edited the whole thing, by himself. It's certainly one of the longer VN translated and one of the better translation out there, so the problem is definitely not him. But I guess the experience burnt him bad enough that he absolutely refuse to do the editing by himself again after finishing the entire translation (again by himself). He started with 2-3 editors but all went AWOL. Recently there are a few new editors jump on board, but from what I see it's still pretty slow.

What makes me think it's a curse is the situation itself is awkward. Most projects stalled due to the lack of translators, whether once thing got translated the editing process usually goes very fast. Here we're sitting on a complete translation for one year and editing still has to play catch up >.<

On the good side though, Edger moved to a new project, and you won't believe it ... it's Air. Given his past work I have good faith that Air may be finished this time (I think its luck over the year is as bad as Fortune).
Title: Re: [H-VN][Partial English] Fortune Arterial
Post by: Geckoey Lurker on May 07, 2012, 01:05:04 pm
Oh, he was the one who translated and edited Canvas 2?! Props to him then, had I know that I wouldn't even have thought about it this way, I guess the Editors are being slacky or could be they're having problems to agree on things.. won't really know what the problem(s) is/are until they tell us outright or someone ask them. Editing can be a pain, I agree, not that I have experience but it takes time and knowledge to do it right, at least I think so and... doing it by yourself after doing the whole translation.. IMO is almost the same as making a second translation pass, especially when you're a perfectionist and you end up rechecking the same sentence over 5 times just to make sure it sounds as naturally good in english as it can get without losing its original sense.. and then you add up how over 30k+ lines there could be.. or at least I think of it like that since I'm doing that right now for S;G and I kinda do it when just typing normally like right now.

A few projects seems to be cursed at the moment, I'm just hoping those "curses" can be lifted at some point, the sooner being the better obviously.

That's great news, I've already read the VN in Japanese so I'm interested in knowing how much I butchered the actual story. Thanks for that piece of info (both of them).

Great news, translation has reached 25% for the whole game! Wahey! Editing is currently at 23%.
I am very pleased, Edger even got an amazing Editor to follow close. I really have huge hopes for Air now.
And they're being rather quick even, it's only been 4 months and already 1/4 translated and about 0.9/4 edited~

Anyone got any more recent update on it? Sheeta mentioned the Common Route being almost done and that they were considering partial patches but no new since then, as far as I know anyway. I'm ready to wait even more years even after all this time, but the excitement can't leave me.

I am aware of the double-post.

For those unaware, Kiriha and Kanade's routes have been translated and released awhile back now.
Check the Anime-Sharing TLs Page (http://translations.anime-sharing.com/) or the OP for the patch & informations.

Currently playing the Kiriha route, which is pretty well done imo. The whole story is quite wierd though

I'll add those to the OP.

Many thanks Gecko.  How did I not know about that part of Nyaa...  God, I'm getting old and out of touch.  Anyway, I hope this is better than the show was.

To be fair, not just anyone go and click on the little "Fap" word on the menubar on Nyaa.

I didn't watch the Anime, yet, was it that bad?

Don't expect too much in an anime adaption.. And you will be fine. Lot of people like it actually, but I doubt that they ever read the VN though.
I cant comprehend the VN itself so I'm not really want to comment the anime =.=
Title: Re: [H-VN][Partial English] Fortune Arterial
Post by: Geckoey Lurker on October 24, 2012, 02:18:25 pm
Well, I generally don't expect anything from any Anime in the first place, plus I'm more of a Manga/LN/VN kind of guy.

Something wrong with the VN, though? What did you not understand :o?

Title: Re: [H-VN][Partial English] Fortune Arterial
Post by: Geckoey Lurker on November 01, 2012, 04:06:35 pm
Well, I'm kinda disappointed. For it to end just when I thought it was truly starting up, though, I probably would've been more disappointed if there was no after-credits scene(s).

100% agree.  I've watched the anime (not sure what route it followed), and only done the Kiriha route, but they could have made that ending so much better.  Normally, I'm disappointed when VN's end the way I'm expecting.  In this case, I would have been happy if it did (he was originally from the island, the waterworks area was very nostalgic...).

Off topic: I was doing my pre cana classes while I finished Shiro's route.  Still passing all the stupid tests even w/o watching the videos.

I don't know about the Anime since I didn't watch it, but I quite literally shouted "WHAT THE HELL?!" when I saw the credits roll up at the ending of Shiro's route. :/

I'm hoping for the True Ending to shed light on a few things, at least.

WOW .... the english patch for this one is almost done .... can't wait it, but imo still gonna wait .... XD
i'm reading the manga of Fortune Arterial .... don't really know which route it takes after, but i kinda like it .... but i have never read the VN so maybe i'm on the wrong side ....
Title: Re: [H-VN][Partial English] Fortune Arterial
Post by: Ideon on November 07, 2012, 03:07:11 pm
Skimmed through the untranslated bits of the manga, looks like it goes the True Ending route. I think the animu is just Erika's with a few extra bits, although I'd need to see what all pops up on her route to say for sure.

Somehow everytime i run the game it gives me a box with japanese words and it doesn't launch the game.
Title: Re: [H-VN][Partial English] Fortune Arterial
Post by: Geckoey Lurker on August 18, 2013, 03:33:36 am
It'd help if you could copy-paste the text here, take a screenshot of the box or something similar so we could at least try to help you.
We can't do much with such vague information :p

Although, I can think of one thing. It's possible the English patch doesn't crack the game for you, so you can try extracting this to FA's main folder and running it:
https://mega.co.nz/#!CBplyQDa!FYTE52nKzT_Xr3442wPe43C8empYH1zqp8-L6L0jXGE
( Default folder is @ C:\August\FORTUNE ARTERIAL )
Title: Re: [H-VN][Partial English] Fortune Arterial
Post by: BlueTears on August 18, 2013, 10:52:30 am
Here you go, its still the same after i downloaded that crack.
I attached the pic.
Title: Re: [H-VN][Partial English] Fortune Arterial
Post by: Geckoey Lurker on August 18, 2013, 12:21:22 pm
『FORTUNE ARTERIAL』を挿入してください - Please, insert Fortune Arterial.
Sounds like the crack didn't work. Also, I'm seeing you are on Win8, and I have no idea if FA is compatible with Win8.

Just to make sure, can you take a screenshot of the insides of your FA's folder? You did run reg.exe after extracting it, too? (http://puu.sh/44v07.png)

Edit:
Oh, and don't forget to try the x64 patch: http://www.mediafire.com/download/ywfz2cl4t78ymar/FA-x64patch.rar

Title: Re: [H-VN][Partial English] Fortune Arterial
Post by: Geckoey Lurker on August 19, 2013, 10:51:54 pm
No need for a guide. It's as straight-forward as just clicking on her in the characters-choice map-thingie, and I think the only two choices that mattered were in Shiro's route.
Title: Re: [H-VN][Partial English] Fortune Arterial
Post by: BlueTears on August 21, 2013, 11:33:14 pm
I think im in Erika's route. I chose to go with erika in the first choice.
