Rewrite: Error Report Thread
« on: June 08, 2012, 06:01:20 pm »
Report any errors (typos, grammatical errors, installation errors, etc) you find when playing Rewrite in this thread.

When reporting a technical problem please include the following information:
Operating System
System locale (please say if it's an emulated locale such as AppLocale or NTLEA)
Where in the game the problem is occurring (scene name and some nearby lines if that's easier than taking a screenshot)
Description of error
Steps to reproduce problem
Any additional information you think might be help
Include screenshots if possible
Please provide a save file near/at the problem area if possible (not required but will help a lot)

Known issues as of the Character Routes patch (do not report these):
If, after installing the patch, the SiglusEngine.exe file crashes the moment you try to run it, then replace it with this .exe instead: http://www.mediafire.com/download.php?rurjs0r3nb1lc4u (or if that still doesn't work: http://www.mediafire.com/?4z91pb2ojidcxjv)
The subtitles on the videos may not play for everyone.
The Memory section (split into Friends/Monsters/Quests) has not been translated yet.
In Chihaya's route many references are made to a left-hand wristblade even though other routes state Kotarou cannot produce aurora from his left hand at all. We consider this a geniune plot hole and have decided to leave it intact in the translation.
Near the end of Shizuru's route, the text may suddenly become much larger just before a certain visual effect occurs.

I have absolutely no idea what that might be, but is this before or after using the patch?

I'm experiencing the same error as Lord Muffintop. The game crashes upon launching the post-patch exe.
Windows 7 Home Premium
Japanese Locale

I've tried reinstalling the game, restarting the computer, still happens.. Could it maybe have something to do with the Japanese locale?

Japanese locale is mandatory for the vast majority of VNs, so the only way it could be the problem is if you're not using real Japanese locale and are instead using some locale emulation program like Applocale (since it sucks).

Still no idea what it is, hopefully a few more posts will give some hints.

This actually looks pretty similar to what happened to me, though I don't know if it's the same thing. Try checking to make sure the patch is installing in the right place. I had several other Key games installed (Clannad, Planetarian, LB!) and the folders were in different places all named "Key" and it wasn't detecting the right location so I had to manually tell it where it was. Hopefully this helps.

I'm quite certain I installed it in the right place.. :/
EDIT: Oh wait just a second, maybe I did make a mistake after all. I'm noticing for some reason it installed in C:/Key/Key instead of C:/Key... Gonna reinstall now.

@Muffintop
That's the standard "Don't pirate our game" message, which is exactly what should appear before patching.

@Aspirety
It's not about installing in the right place (doesn't matter where you install), it's about telling our patch where you installed it.  Though I assume that's what you meant.

Random idea.  Try using this exe instead and tell me what happens: http://www.mediafire.com/download.php?nqqptpszg67u2if [use the one I link a few posts down instead]

For the record, that exe has no wordwrapping and is probably missing other bug fixes we did, so if the one in the patch worked after you installed it in the right place you should use that one instead.
