Steins;Gate Elite PSVita English Translation Patch

Steins;Gate Elite is a visual novel and an updated version of the 2009 game Steins;Gate. Unlike previous games in the Science Adventure series, it is fully animated, using all the footage from the Steins;Gate anime series along with newly produced animation for story routes not adapted in the anime; the animation is played together with the script and voiced dialogue from the original game. The player reads the on-screen text and presses a button to advance the animation and text, and thereby progresses through the story. At some points, the player makes choices which cause the story to branch into different directions, leading to different endings.

What's translated:

  • Every script, including story, messages, tips*, @channel messages, menu messages etc
  • Videos
  • BGs
  • Almost every Menu section

What's not translated:


  • Help section of the Menu, as it's completely different from PC
  • A few tips are in Japanese, because they don't exist in the english version.
  • A few tips are not present, because they don't exist in the japanese version.

Bugs:


  • Sometimes text may exceed the 3 lines limit and go out of screen. This is because the PSVita has less space to put the text into: on PC the font is smaller and there is less margin (As a workaround, the missing text is viewable in the backlog menu). I don't think there's a fix for this (or at least it's not an easy one)
  • You tell me

Requirements:


  • Modded PSVita (Enso/h-encore) with Repatch plugin installed
  • Of course, the purchased game

Link:


Beta 2.0

Old: Beta 1.0

Really thax for it, its time to give it a shot to this game. I had so many in the list that i always forget this one and this version should excel it. Maybe wait for final version anyway.

This looks exciting! Maybe not the right place for it, but do you think this is the better version of the game to play for my first time?
Also, are there other Vita VN translation projects like this one?

If this is your first Visual Novel, yes, is the best to play your first time (and maybe repeat the gameplay).

I don't mean first VN, I mean first Steins;Gate experience. If both are now on the Vita, should I be playing this or the original?

Anyhow, I'm having trouble getting it to patch. I'm getting an XD3_INVALID_INPUT checksum mismatch error

About the game: Think of it like this: you take the script from the original VN and you cut the unneeded parts (like when okabe describes what's around him etc., Because you see it from the video). Then, you remove/change some tiny parts because they've been changed in the anime, so they have to be adapted for the video. Add new animations for the alternate endings and then you have Elite. So, most part of the narration is still there, only the unneeded part is cut (at least in the first chapter, I didn't compare side by side the others but it should be the same)
About your problem: You've probably copied the encrypted files, not the decrypted ones. Make sure you've followed every step of the guide (especially step 4 of "Preparation"). Which method did you use?

I had the same issue and this solved it. Make sure you go in VitaShell and decrypt the folder first. Teaches me not to read instructions thoroughly :)

Hey, great work with this patch. (I did eventually resolve my issues earlier in the thread and have since completed the game.) On the Reddit release thread, you mentioned that Linear Bounded Phenogram is patchable. Have you made any progress exploring it further? All games on one console would be incredible.
