Future Plans

We initially played with the thought of finishing the Baldr Sky translation but we decided against it. Our future should be in a new direction, a revolutionary one.

We started this translation project because of the great experience we had playing it and we wanted to share this experience with the English-speaking world. We hope that those of you who have already played through our partial patch had an enjoyable time and we will strive to bring the entire translation to you soonish.

Almost the entire staff has played through the entire game and while it was a great story we felt something was lacking. Missed opportunities, lazy writing and poor directorial decisions, these are some of the things we saw when we played through this game. Even though this game is a solid 8 we think it could have been a 10 if a few small things were different.

As you might have noticed we released an all-ages version which cuts out the erotic content of the game, but this was only a practice run and the beginning of something great. The overwhelming success (as seen in the download numbers) made us believe that we’re able to correct these imperfections. And so we have decided that once we finish our translation we’ll fulfill the true potential of this game.

For example it was pretty easy to see that the current heroines aren’t really the stars of the show, two other characters are the real prize. So the first significant change will be the addition of two original routes with one starring Oboro and the other being Hazuki. This is only the beginning and we will change a significant amount about this game to make it as good as it can be.

We hope that you are as enthusiastic as we are about this idea and that you will support us in our future plans.

Update: Naturally, this was just an April Fools’ Day joke and you shouldn’t take any of this seriously.

Back to business

With our partial out it’s back to the usual business. This means that re-editing/QC for Chisato’s route has been completed and we can move on with the other routes.

On the translation side we’ve completed Michiru’s route and another one is really close. You’ll find the exact numbers below.

Common/Chisato: 18398/18398
Satsuki: 8334/8334
Michiru: 6547/6547
Isara: 5717/5919
Mifuyu: 4000/5425

Translation: 389/397 files
Editing: 181/397 files
QC: 133/397 files

Update: Fixed an error in the number of files translated.

It’s finally here

About two and a half months later we can now present you with our group’s first partial patch. This patch for Koi to Senkyo to Chocolate (PC) will translate the game’s initial playthrough (Common + Chisato) and the game’s interface. You should not run into any Japanese text if you start with a fresh install. (You can delete the files in SystemSaveData if you want a fresh start). The patch is considered a BETA release and while we’re happy with the overall quality it may still contain typos and other minor mistakes.

Patch versions & OP

We’re releasing two versions of the patch. The original version and a modified “All-ages” version, which has the explicit scenes removed and some minor CG changes. You’re free to choose whichever version you’d like to use.

Apart from the different versions we’ll also provide a separate download for the game’s OP. You’re free to download this file and copy it to your game’s root directory where the game will automatically use it in-game. We’re offering it as a separate download due to its size and video quality. The hardsubbed version is of lower quality and people might choose to view the OP in its full glory. If you want to see the subbed version on youtube you can click here.

IRC
Along with the patch’s release I’d also like to mention our IRC channel: #BasicTranslations @ irc.rizon.net. You can find us there if you a have comments or questions about the patch.
