(As is, this patch doesn't work, and I'm assuming the sprites-and-background patch for Tsumihoroboshi is the same way. For this patch to work, you need to download bgitools (in System Tools), and use arcextract.exe to extract data02000.arc to a folder, extract the patch files into this folder, then use arccreate.exe to put together data02000.arc again. Put this new .arc in your Higurashi folder, and you're good to go. Link to a prepared data02000.arc is here: http://www.mediafire.com/?u1hmokymydw)

Reccuring Issues and Errors[edit | edit source]
-Occasional Crashes (Fixed in 1.1)
-Game miscellaneously shifts between day, afternoon, and sunset indoors for no apparent reason (I.E. The protag will be playing a game with the club after school, and the background will shift from the school at day time, to the afterschool sunset). This has been reported many a time, and has yet to be fixed. Currently, nobody is working on it. This issue is continuous and REMAINS UNFIXED.
-There are instances in which sprites are a part of the backgrounds. Such as in chapter 1 (spoiler) ʇı sʞooq ʇsıuobɐʇoɹd ǝɥʇ ǝɹoɟǝq ʇɥbıɹ uʍopʞɐǝɹq ɐ sɐɥ puɐ 'pɐǝɥ ɹǝɥ ɹǝʌo ɹǝʌɐǝןɔ ɹǝɥ sʇɟıן ɐuǝɹ uǝɥʍ (end spoiler). Also happens often during recollections of earlier events in the chapter. A suggested solution by anon is to replace these instances (in which sprites are part of the background) is to replace those images with the relative CG from Matsuri. In situations where there is no CG, the character's appointed rape face could be used. (Though, as far as I've seen, each one DOES have a CG.) Currently, NOBODY IS WORKING ON THIS.
Unfortunately, what we have might be the best we'll get until NScript ports the game. If he does. ever.
- There have been error messages popping up during the second arc most notably (SPOILERS)ʞɔɐןq suɹnʇ punoɹbʞɔɐq ǝɥʇ puɐ 'dn sdod ɹoɹɹǝ uɐ ɹǝʇɥbnɐן s,uoıɯ puɐ uıɐd ǝɥʇ sǝqıɹɔsǝp ǝɥ ɥɔıɥʍ buıɹnp ˙˙˙ɥɔɐɯoʇs ǝɥʇ uı uoıɯ ʎɯ pǝqqɐʇs sı ıɥɔııǝʞ uǝɥʍ. It happens repeatedly (with the background completely black), until the background is showing the moon. The text continues and the game doesn't crash, but there is no background.
Everything listed above has been fixed in v1.1b.
