There it is. After seventeen weeks we can now finally proudly release the full Hatsukoi 1/1 patch.
I’m not one for words, so I’ll keep it short. Trip told me he wanted to translate something cute to fill the void that Nisekoi left us. He originally found Hoshi Ori, which I veto’d, cause it’d be too long a VN for our first project.
We then decided to take a look at tone work’s’s other visual novels, and then he discovered Hatsukoi 1/1. After experimenting a bit we got the text insertion working, and we decided to actually go for it. Seventeen weeks later, and here we are. I liked working on this VN. As you might know we come from manga, so working on something this big really was quite fresh.
I could go on and on but Trip’s thought on our entire process match my own pretty much, so I’ll just link you to his blog.
There’s also a review on his review blog, but it will contain spoilers so be careful if you haven’t read the VN yet.
Some have asked me for my rankings of the girls and the routes; I won’t go into detail like Trip, but here it is.
Runa > Maya > Kyou > Midori > Yukino
Runa > Maya = Yukino > Kyou > Midori
For now – although useless when you consider the title of this post – here is our final progress update. As always, text in bold are updates.
Yes; Total: 100% looks pretty nice if you ask me.
Anyway, onto the important stuff. As always, there are three files you can download.
Manual Install: Please use this file if you don’t trust random executables from the internet (very smart). In this 7z there are two folders. Please read the readme as to how to use the manual patch.
Automatic Install – Fresh: Use this executable if you have not used one of our previous patches. Just run the installer and point it to the Hatsukoi 1/1 folder.
Automatic Install – Yukino: Use this executable if you have used one of our previous patches. Just run the installer and point it to the Hatsukoi 1/1 folder.
I just got word the automatic patches aren’t working correctly. Please download the 7z archive for now. We will update the automatic patches asap.
As always, if you find any errors in the script, just notify us on /vn/ or in a reply on this blog. We’ll update the links every so often, or maybe post a new link just for the script.
We would also like to thank everyone who has supported us throughout these seventeen weeks, especially /vn/ where both Trip and I are pretty much lurking 24/7. They’re a weird bunch but we love them nonetheless.
We’d also like to thank our hacker whom we got into contact with through the fuwanovel forums. I haven’t asked him if he wants to be named explicitly, if he wishes for that we’ll include him here. Just know that we’re very grateful.
That will be all for us for now. We will now take a much deserved rest of one to two weeks, and then we’ll start on Tsujidou for real.
We hope you will enjoy Hatsukoi 1/1, and we’ll see you in a few weeks with our first Tsujidou progress update.
