Tweaking Umineko Wiki

These are questions frequently asked enough to warrant their own page.

Patch-specific questions


I don't want to use sprites/voices/bgs is it possible to remove them? Yes

Chiru: Is this possible also? No.


Why can I only see some parts of the patch?

In your patch folder, you should have arc.nsa (translated buttons and images) arc1.nsa (in-game sprites and system menu sprites) arc2.nsa (backgrounds) arc3.nsa, and arc4.nsa (voices). Transfer any arcs from previous releases is unadvised from us. Which parts to keep are a matter of preference, but they must be numbered in order. (E.g., arc, arc1, arc2, etc.)

Onscripter won't be able to read anything when your arcs aren't in numerical order. To remove an arc, rename every arc past it one number down, because your list shouldn't go from arc to arc2 with no arc1.

For example, assume you don't want arc1 (sprites) but you're keeping everything else. To do so, you should rename arc2 to arc1, arc3 to arc2, and arc4 to arc3.

Why can't I save or see the save menu?

Ensure that, during the installation, your Japanese arc files are unchanged by you. (They are the ones in your main folder outside of the UmiTweak folder). To fix them if they are overwritten, do a clean reinstall (i.e., a reinstallation without modifying the files) of Umineko, and put our arc files into our UmiTweak folder.

If you can not get a clean installation for whatever reasons, put the other language's arc2 into the original game folder, and the english arc2 into the UmiTweak Patch Folder.

What do I do if I see a bug or mistake?

Take a screenshot and describe it at the Bug Report page, so the team can see it and adjust accordingly.

Regarding the games

Can you upload CGs/sprites/backgrounds/the Umineko PS3 ISO/original ISO?

No. We are sorry, but as people who support the sales of Umineko Rondo and Nocturne, we can't do that. This patch is for people that have the original game and the PS3 version.

Can you teach me how to rip the voices/sprites/CG/BG from the game?

Sorry, we can't do something like that. There are some tools for it, however they are meant for translating. As a group that supports the sales of both versions of Umineko (PC, and PS3), we can't do that.

Where can I buy the original game or the PS3 Version?

You can buy the game from MangaGamer's website. The PS3 version can be bought where doujinshis or Japanese PS3 Games are sold, such as Amiami .
