[sticky post] Welcome to Hinamizawa-When They Translate  
Greetings!  This is the official community for the When They Translate, a group currently working on translating the Higurashi visual novels into English, starting with Watanagashi-hen and picking up where the previous group left off.  I help maintain this community and work as a beta-tester/editor for the group.  The patches provided here will be for the Japanese versions of the games, so you will need to have imported at least Himatsubushi-hen and Matsuriyabashi-hen in order to apply them.  A lot of us had already purchased the games before MangaGamer's releases, only for the original translation project to grind to a halt.  The "official" translation provided by MangaGamer had many problems, including switched sprites and music, poor translation, and the removal of all extras.  Rest assured these patches will not have these same issues and will be more accurate to the original works.  Also, please be aware that this is a small group, so the patches may take some time.  We will do our best to keep you updated.

NOTE:  I came up with the "When They Translate" name.: P

Re: About downloading the game

On the left side, there are a bunch of buttons. The second one should take you to a page with numbered download links. I've not tried these in a long time, but they should still be active.

Please keep in mind, if you are not in Japan, you cannot use links 1-6. Also, this contains the first arc only, but none of the extras that come along with that episode-you'll only get those if you buy the game.
