How the fuck do i install Tsukihime and get it running? (41)

1 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2007-04-27 22:38 ID:dTCpgn2S

Hello there,

I come to you in one of the darkest hours in my entire life to seek advice and aid from generous wise Anonymous gamers:
I completely fail on installing Tsukihime.
Please tell me what the hell i am doing wrong.

  1. I downloaed the original japanese game (.ccd image, seems like a hongfire release,
  2. I mounted the image with Damon Tools 4.06. Still everything seems to work fine.
  3. I use applocale to run the inst.exe file from the mounted cd image. (without it, installation fails)
  4. I choose a path where i want to install it and answer Yes to the question, which includes the patch i just chose.
  5. I anwer the next 4 upcoming moonspeak boxes with "Yes" or "OK" (depending on the type of the box).
  6. I check the path and there it is, a folder called "月姫" with the files arc.sar, jpgplgin.dll, nscript.dat, scrunarc.dll and 月姫.exe.

I can run 月姫.exe and play the game, but fuck: Moonspeak, everywhere!

7. I downloaded Tsukihime English version 1.1 translation (c) 2006 mirror moon ( and unpacked it. It contains the files arc.nsa, arc.sar, default.ttf, nscript.dat, 2 txt files (a Readme which explains shit and a file with some background info) and 2 directorys ("CD " with music and "Extras" with walkthroughs)

8. At this Point, i tried various things like

  • copying all these files and folders in the 月姫 directory
  • copying only the duplicate files in the 月姫 folder
  • copying the 月姫.exe from the 月姫 folder in the extracted translations folder

9. Now i try to run the 月姫.exe in this directory.
AND WHAT DO I GET? A motherfucking error from hell: It is built of moonspeak and "101.txt line:9977" and Back, debugpage1" and "|goto *2029"....WHAT THE FUCK?

Also, here is a graphical description of the previous enumeration:
What happens at the last question mark depends on yourcooperation...

I also tried copying the CD files on my hard drive, then copying the translation files and folders to it, running the installation procedure. When i started the game i got the same error. Running the game with applocale changes nothing either.
I use german Windows XP SP2.

Jesus.. what a pain in my ass! Please, tell what the fuck i am supposed to do in order to get tsukihime running. Endless internets to helping hands...

Yeah, because you NEVER download shit illegally and have enough money to purchase all these weeaboo goods, amirite? How am i supposed to participate japanese auctions anyways?

5 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2007-04-28 14:27 ID:Heaven

The translation pack i downloaded was worthless after all. Well, stupid me got it to work with the installer and original tsukihime cd image (oh noes illegal etc.).

Anyways, if you manage to explain me why the fuck everyone makes such a big deal about it you can proceed to rape and troll this thread as you wish.

OHNOES I AM PLAYING AN ILLEGAL COPY OF TSUKIHIME AND EVEN VIOLATED THE AGREEMENT FROM MIRRORMOON FAGS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

6 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2007-04-29 15:12 ID:Heaven


Notice how it's so hard to get now it costs $300? Not even mirror moon care, they just put the agreement there for the sake of their own asses.

And the OP is also a retard. Congratulations on getting stuck with such a fucking simple thing and then deciding it sucks anyway.

Why should we care about pirates? Post an official and legitimate receipt for a legitimate copy and we might think about asking somebody about helping you.

11 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2007-10-22 22:12 ID:Heaven

Nice. I lol'd.

...hmph, loser. I need help and you make a damn joke about it. I should have known better than to ask anonymous users. Unless you're going to help me, go ahead and BURN IN HELL.

I found mine as a pre-patched English version on some torrent site. Getting it working smoothly on Mac was what took all the time. And no, I won't discuss where I found it.

I regret to inform you that the game "Tsukihime" does not in fact contain mother fucking, only adoptive sister fucking.

There are a number of other excellent visual novels in which you may witness mother fucking; please direct an inquiry to Peach Princess, Inc. for further information.

19 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2007-11-03 11:09 ID:Heaven

I hear that 70% of hleps fuck their mother.

>>16 Getting it working smoothly on Mac was what took all the time.
Compiling onscripter is hard??

Rename the fucking directory the game is in. Last time I used the english patcher, it hated jap names.

28 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2007-11-14 13:16 ID:Heaven

Nah, getting it bundled into a proper .app with the files in the right places and a decent icon was what was hard.

29 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2007-12-25 20:28 ID:edVYlhzQ this is the right patch that will work this is the file you need to download when it asks you for the arc.sar file in the patch installation

my big "thank you" to the Anonymous who uploaded these files

and to people who feel like telling others what is the right thing to do yet do the same thing them self

I'm not spending that much money on animu gaems. I need that money for booze and drugs.

Working download link pl0x.

32 Name: Lother Avanti : 2011-04-14 08:59 ID:FAmSprM6

Just rename the installation directory, then run the patch. Since the directory is named in Japanese, it creates some sort of conflict when applying the patch(where it looks for arc.sar). Hope this helps.

Um, when I try to open to mount the IMG file with daemon tools, I don't get another window or anything, wtf?

I don't belong here.
But seriously, this is the best thread I have found even vaugely related to this game.
Just... look.

36 Name: Skippy : 2018-08-30 04:57 ID:kuIYqKcF

Sorry, the E-mail above is wrong, I wasn't paying attention.

37 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2018-11-26 05:06 ID:82WdkDgU

Hey OP I’m playing it right now. Simply mount it with daemon tools, install it, drop the English patch into the tsukihime folder or use the installer, change your system locale to Japanese (this is probably where you are fucking up) and boom should be playable

38 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2019-02-25 20:21 ID:Heaven

You guys realize OP needed help 10 years ago and is either dead, grown up, or simply not interested in the game anymore? Any replied will not be read by the OP. I would bet every single amount of currency on Earth. >>37

cut off your penis

if you don't have one you must find someone to contribute one as sacrifice

> either dead, grown up, or simply not interested in the game anymore

yeah I can understand how ageless immortals might lose interest in the affairs of us on such a fleeting timescale
