Any update on the progress of Episode 8? I'm holding off from reading it until it's been completely translated, can't wait.

You mean the one where he only makes one post per year? (Sorry Klash, I know from personal experience the difficulties of maintaining a blog.)

There really is no point in asking, I'm afraid. The patch will be ready when it's ready. There'll be an update when there's something to announce.

A bit offtopic but I didn't see anyone asking that question yet.

What are the chances of you translating Higanbana Witch-Hunt?

They don't plan to do anything after Umineko.

We were actually thinking about that, depending how things are going for us after Umineko is done (as a matter of fact, I and Chrono had some interest in Rewrite).
As a matter of opinion, I'm really not thrilled by Higanbana, due to its presentation and exposure being focused on the disturbing/gloomy mood (not exactly chilling) with little to no interesting character, except the entitled character, to some degree.

Of course, this is only based on what the manga has unfolded so far and I may be proved wrong by its release this week. That said, it is too early to tell if we are going to make another project, let alone naming the next VN.

I really wouldn't blame you if you decided not to take on another project. I mean, you've been doing this for what, 4 years now? You guys need a break eventually.

Chrono and Klash certainly does need it at least, lol...

Also I guess beyond the break thing, the level of passion and fandom Umineko created might not be present for future theorical projects.

If you do decide to start another translation project, please make it something you'll definitely enjoy working on. The passion for Umineko really shines through in the translation, so please don't feel obliged to translate such-and-such a game just because we want it. Still, a ReWrite or Higanbana translation would be great (if there's some way of getting hold of the game).

Actually, I would much prefer a Rewrite translation to a Higanbana translation if they did decide to pick something new up.

Translating Rewrite would be nice. Part of it is Ryukishi's work, after all.
Of course I hope Higanbana gets a translation too, but short stories might be easier to manage with Translation Aggregator.

Rewrite would be awesome, but I think getting permission to fan translate it would be difficult as it is property of multiple companies

Rewrite or Higanbana, I would be excited to see either translated. However, if Witch-Hunt chose to quit after this, I could never blame them either. Translating Umineko for English speaking fans for nothing other than pure love of the series is no small feat, and I'll be forever grateful to them for bringing the game into my life.

So, cheers to Witch-Hunt for being simply awesome!

Please note that this configuration option only works in ONScripter. MangaGamer's release of Higurashi When They Cry uses Buriko General Interpreter which does not support this feature. Therefore there is no straightforward way to increase the window size for that game. Alternatively, you could decrease your display's resolution so the window appears larger, or use third-party software to upscale the image.

For the record, I've put up a list of ONScripter configuration options at the ONScripter-EN website.

Sorry to get back off topic again but if it were between the two Vns, I'd prefer REwrite seeing as Key doesn't have many translators to begin with anyways.

The problem with Rewrite is that I'm not sure Visual Art's would give their permission to release a fan translation (and they don't seem too interested in official translations anyway).

Sure, a patch could be released without Visual Art's permission, but that's generally discouraged within Denpa.

On the other hand, 07th Expansion have been very supportive of fan translations, so it is likely that they would allow a fan translation of Higanbana.

Oh, yes, if Witch Hunt wants the approval of the creators, Rewrite will never happen. I mean, you're technically locked from even trying to play it if you're not on a Japanese copy of Windows, so...

AppLocale could probably solve that problem, though?

Anyway, one advantage of translating Higanbana is that there is very little to do on the technical level. ONScripter-EN should be able to play the game more-or-less perfectly. Plus, it is easy to get at the script and add the translation. Witch Hunt have experience with translating NScripter games so it should be quite simple.

With Rewrite however, I'm not even sure what engine they're using… it might be more difficult to translate (especially if the engine can't deal with English text well).

That said, I'm sure that if Witch Hunt really want to translate Rewrite, they'll find a way.
