To Love Ru Darkness: Battle Ecstasy – English translation [JP] [PCSG00330] [Vita] [English translation] v1.05

English translation demo preview


After another long hiatus finally finished another translation project upon the request of one of my good friends at vita3k. I never thought I’d do another translation project as life/health has been catching up on me. But my friend’s enthusiasm for the game kinda motivates me enough to do this project. So, for the fan of the manga and anime, you may thank him for this translation.

The game may not be for everyone’s taste because of the fan services and boobies. But hey, somebody got to do the dirty work with these games.

This is translation using machine/AI translation and then edited by a non-English speaker to make it a bit understandable. I’ll plan to release the Quickbms scripts I’ve created to rip/repack the *.cat files in the future here my blog. So, anyone could fix the translation if they want to or translate it to another language. I just need time to fix my scripts so they would be a bit user-friendly. Just don’t expect a clean code, as I’m also no programmer.

Additional Notes:
○ Use vitacheat sparingly or disable it after a dungeon run.
○ Vitacheat can cause screen flickering when enabling Max combo cheat
○ Vitacheat may cause a permanent issue to your save file, like being unable to activate event points on chapter 12 if you kill the enemy with an instant kill cheat.
○ Vitacheat may also cause you to be unable to activate some challenge mission and will carry over to your save and won’t reset until you make a new one.
○ A crash is most likely to occur on stages 20-25 when you kill many enemies on screen in a short period (ex.. 50 enemies in 5 sec) with cheats with or without the English patch. Killing enemies without instant kill does not trigger the crash.
○ You can play as Riko after finishing the game by stepping in the teleporter and pressing SELECT upon entering the dungeon.
○ The game auto-saves after an event or exiting a dungeon. This is the only way to save the game.
○ This game and english patch is working on Vita3k
