    But you don't really need translation for Rance 6, since the game has rather simple mechanic. The only time it's critical when you upgarde your skills, since there you could screw your character by picking not useful ones. And some characters became strong only after you pick some critical upgrades for them.
    Other things, like what each skill do in battle or what events related to each character could easily be found after some experimenting, that wouldn cost you little time and resources.

    I think I will wait for 4.2 and then do them both together, unless it takes to long to translate. I haven't played neither 4.1 or 4.2 yet, let's see if it works in my PC.

    Edit: Managed to start playing it. Funny stuff.

    Rance gonna Rance.

    Damn anti-Rance alarms...

    [​IMG]

    That which is destined, cannot be denied.

    This time Sill was left home, since Rance is all tsun-tsun about her. He gets stuck with Athena 2.0 instead (whose sowftare is still in the pre-alpha version).

    They went back to more "adventure" game feel of Rance 1-2 instead of the more RPG-like gameplay of 3-4 if you ask me, so I'm going to just wait for an LP.

    Well, finished this. Really short, so I'm waiting for the next part, since they shamelessly cut the plot at the end.

    The game really delivers in the lulz department. Usually we have Sill to counter Rance's Ranceiness. This time he is alone with Athena, who basically is a fembot with the mind of a retarded talking dog. lulz.
    Had one of those Rance's "Strategy time" moments to get a woman that was about to end with Bird (the loser who flirted with Sill and lost an arm), hillarity ensues.


    Also adds a new mysterious girl who saves Rance a couple of times...

    (And KR should be aproaching 1/3 of the translation this week)

    So, I've been reading the Alicesoft blog. Some new tidbits about Rance IX

    So... more focus on the seven heroines this time instead the bang-a-thon of Rance Quest.

    Can you guess who this is?

    [​IMG]

    New heroines have been revealed. Kichikuou Rance coming a-callin'

    The black one is probably certain someone with "black" in their name. She's also princess. Sort of. That leaves one more.

    The remaining heroines are likelly Shizuka and the so called "Jet Black Princess" some kind of half devil necromancer or something they hinted in the previous game. Tomorrow they will show more in their blog I think.

    Question related to Sengoku Rance:

    Show Spoiler

    - Is it possible to melt Sel's ice with Suzaku's flames or in this game? at the end it looked as if Rance was going on journey to find a cure so...
    - Also at what turn the demon army spawns? Fucking last boss deprived me from conquering all the clans by killing off the remaining two while I was busy dealing with the Yukai

    1.It's not possible. So you should wait until next game to do it... maybe. That was completely ignored in RQ as far as i know.
    2. It spawns several turns after temple event. And temple event happens after you break 5 from 8 guards. Wards breaking when you conquer specific faction, but not all factions have a guard. So it's better to wage a war against several factions with wards and bring them near destruction before you break the fifth one, so you could deal with them fast enough after temple event. Also Yukai don't get conquered by demon army, so you should actually ignore them in the first part of the game.

    -Not possible. Wait for future titles.

    -The Demon Army spawns after certain events after 5 guard are broken. Some break automatically after certain number of turns. Others when you conquer the houses holding them (check F5). The trick is dellaying the conquest of the houses with guards.
    Example: At the begining you conquer the Hara as fast as you can't since they don't have a guards. Then you will have to fight the fish guy, but since they hold a guard is best to not conquer them completly until later (and while you are at war with someone, the ninja guys wont attack you). So ideally you conquer as much land as possible without defeating the factions with guards. This way you will have plenty of time to become strong enough to deal with the Demon Army and conuqer most factions.
    And for a first playthrough I think is better to ignore the Youkai, or at least wait until you get battle permits to make things easier.

    Edit: Ninja'd

    I decided to finish TT2 and managed to unlock the last floor of dungeon so far. Before advancing further I choose to finish exploration of 32 floor only to find out, that some of areas with visible chests in them are completely blocked. If I understand that situanion correctly, then player could get access to them through teleports on that floor. I didn't know about that because in the first place, to where I teleported, there was guy that gave me an item, which disabled all teleports. And there is no way to remove that item from my inventory, even as there is absolutely no justification about why I couldn't use these teleports if I want to. If that is the case, then these game has one of the most bullshit design decisions that I met in the games in a while.
    So I guess now I should reload from earlier save and check, if there are something of value, like spells or porn pictures. And there shouldn't be any problem with that, because I made a save at the end of each floor exactly for situations like that, right? But there is a problem, since when I filled up all my save slots (and that happened somewhere near tournament stage), most of them become bugged and couldn't save anything in them. And from 3 slots, that I left with, two I use constantly and one I kept for the case of me being in the mood of checking evil path and I need to replay most of the post tourment stage from it. So why am I don't rage quit that game yet?

    Because of crusading femists, who some time ago learned about existence of hentai games? AS isn't the only ones from Japan, who block their games fron non-japanese. There are other companies also and even entire online stores.

    I thought it's mostly because it's illegal for them to sell their stuff outside of Japan. And who can blame that?

    I am not sure about Alicesoft games in particular, but online japanese stores were closed for foreigners several years ago because of some problems with USA. Some developers even forbid a fan translations. There was a pretty big fuss about it.

    In Alicesoft's case it was about a certain game with nazi lolis. Just trying to limit the butthurt.

    Selling porn games outside Japan is not illegal. Selling uncensored English translated versions is. Imagine that.

    I actually don't really think it was Daiteikoku specifically at fault..

    It's more of the general fallout (New Vegas) from the RapeLay scandal. After that event, Alicesoft decided that there's way too many people in the world with too much power, too much time on their hands and no sense of humor to risk anything.

    Which is a shame, I heard they were actually approached by some company or another for licensing and got turned down. Maybe if RapeGate didn't happen we could have actual commercial releases of Rance (granted, it's never going to be on Steam but I imagine having a legal option to purchase it would do wonders for the series popularity)[/quote]

    We don't want that. It's popular enough as it is.
    Maybe after the saga is properly finished.

    I can tell you that the company's reaction to the controversy was making a fantasy game where you plays as a "Demon Lord" who needs to avoid getting raped by adventuring "heroines" who want to drain your power.

    They have a sense of humor, at least.
