Install the final MGQ3 patch from Rogue. Then get the decrypted game script (0.txt). Use any compatible software, as the example - AE Tools.

I have uploaded the fixed (plus enchanced) 0.txt to a hosting. Just download this file and unpack it to the gamedir. I recommend to use this file as the base for any full patch mode.

This page comments the current beta version of the patch.

Current version is from 19 Apr 2014, 16:22 GMT.

Current beta version is alpha 14.

P.S. If you install patch and then continue the original story - please load autosave data (not the savegame). A MGQ savegame remembers the last line number of the script. And if the script was edited - this line can be different and you can get glitches.

Update from 8 Jan 2014, 11:10 GMT:

  1. Have fixed Alma Elma's Tentacle Blast counter - forgot to restore $ori_name to default value.
  2. Have added Gnomaren/Grandine defence bonus versus Alice's Monster Lord Cruelty.
  3. Have added Salamander defence bonus versus Grandine (30%).
  4. Have added Black Alice (final) extra hits with Grandine.
  5. Have applied 95% of the Spin-off Stories patch from TheGreatHeinrich. It looks like all Spin-off Stories are working now.
  6. Skills messages are genderless now. So - you aren't forced to the male protagonist and female enemies. (tnx to TheGreatHeinrich)
  7. Meditation is working now as in the japan version. Total number of restored HPs is displayed. (tnx TheGreatHeinrich)
  8. Have rechecked the $ori_name/$temp_name initialization and using. As the result - I hope there is no more double spaces after name (attack, struggle, guard, skills etc). Removed in the next update.
  9. Now messages like "Luka's/Cecil's vitality..." are without space before 's. Removed in the next update.
  10. Fight versus Ilias (final) - have fixed skills menu after Alice requests Quadruple Giga.

Update from 13 Jan 2014, 4:15 GMT:

  1. Many areas of the game are fixed - no more double/missed spaces.
  2. Name and Skillname tags are working now without the ending space. So - the old fix was removed, because the old version has forced the using of ending spaces.
  3. Many areas are slightly redesigned. Like "s's" to "s'", "Eye of" to "Eyes of", Monsterpedia/Data page, Achievements, Skills right-click menu. Too many areas to list...
  4. Have fixed the Extra menu/Music bug. This choice was hidden after you have finished Chapter 1. And until you have finished Chapter 2.

Update from 20 Jan 2014, 5:52 GMT:

  1. Have fixed old patch bugs (Chrome (2) fight crash, Ilias (final) Alma Elma normal attack, Ilias (final) EX victory, Cherub Vormiel/Atma Elma typo etc).
  2. City and area maps - remove doublespaces, centering, required levels adjusting - done.
  3. Yamata no Orochi fight at EX - Tamamo Ball disappears now.
  4. Ilias (Final) at EX - Quad Spirit Summon appears in the Skill rightclick menu.
  5. Spin-Off stories list - ieroglyphic spaces and ending spaces are opional now.
  6. "Hit by All requestable Chapter ... Techniques" count verification.
  7. Special Config, story choices, item/skill descriptions - doublespaces are removed.
  8. > \ and > @ constructions removed.
  9. Credit roll - no doublespaces and centered.
  10. Repeated enemies - entry number is added to the "Most lose to" name.
  11. Chapter 3 start - no scenes with Vampire/Goblin Girl and Queen Ant if Luka have skipped these locations.

Update from 25 Jan 2014, 8:20 GMT

  1. Have fixed the Spin-offs story text output, now the wait cursor is in the same line as the text. This have fixed "50 Evaluations: the true story" as the example.
  2. Have fixed skillname plates in Spin-offs. In-battle skillname plates were fixed but in-story were not...
  3. Have fixed Alraune Ivy Restraint crash (the reason is a typo).

Update from 19 Apr 2014 16:22 GMT

  1. The Spider Princess' rape scene crash is fixed.
  2. "Serene Mind" is working now versus Queen Elf's "Mount".
  3. Kitsune's "Clone" uses all 3 locations.

If you have found an error in my last patch - please report it here. Tnx.

GC345 (talk) 08:31, August 9, 2014 (UTC)

Hello there!
I am not sure if it is really connected to this fix, but while replaying MGQ I am now stuck in Chapter 2 where Luka has to search for all the missing orbs to awaken the bird god to reach the Monster Lord's castle. The problem: the world map is missing the location to get the orbs from Kraken and Poseidoness, Port Natalia; I was only able to select the locations to get the orb from Selene's ghost ship and to rescue Sara from Queen Elf.
If I remember correctly I did not start with this fix, I found out about it later, and I changed during the game play to the beta version of this fix and back again; so not sure if that has broken my save file or if that is even possible.
To exclude other mistakes by me: is it possible to break the game by not correctly applying the patches? I first used the official patch and then copied over it the most recent English patch by Rogue; everything correct with it?
Thanks in advance for any help.

Kargadan (talk) 11:30, October 23, 2014 (UTC)

Well, the first step is obvious - create a savegame before this map and send your savegame (save\gloval.sav and save\saveX.*, where X is the save number). Via email ( I will check this.

GC345 (talk) 15:10, October 23, 2014 (UTC)

Well, now I must understand how someone can get Blue orb but not get Silver Orb... Oh well...

About incompatibility - savegames are compatible. But there is 1 trouble - the game continues from a different line with different patches. As the example, if you load your savegame in the vanilla Rogue's patch - you will see "Rescue Sara" again, because the game skips several lines after the savegame location...

GC345 (talk) 21:10, October 24, 2014 (UTC)

I saw that difference too, as I tested the save file with different states of the game, once with vanilla Rogue's patch, but I thought I used the wrong save file because I saw again "Rescue Sara". So, the problem could have arisen due to me changing your fix patch during a game play?

I did see some other strange behaviour, too. Firstly before the battle against Emily, daughter of Cassandra, I saved before the battle and quit the game; when I loaded that save file again the battle against Emily was instantly over, won so to speak, and the game proceeded to the battle against Cassandra (luckily I had a save file a battle before Emily's, which worked correctly).

Alas, I do not know if I changed at that time your fix patch (At one point I tried the side story "Alma Elma "Don't Sweat It" and I thought your fix is incompatible with it as the game crashed, but I found in the comments the answer that I just had to edit two lines in the story.ini; that was the reason I changed your fix patch, by the way).
Oh, and I think I did not start the game with your fix patch, so maybe even then was the point my game progress got broken.

Kargadan (talk) 21:45, October 24, 2014 (UTC)

To fix all "I have installed the new patch" troubles - just load autosave data in Extras menu. You will lose some progress, but this will fix all potential glitches. The trouble is - your savegame itself is incorrect, to be precise - %item07 value is wrong. Let's see...

Ok, backup your 0.txt file, then open it in an editor. Find the *map6_2 subroutine. There are the string if %item07=0 ... Port Natalia... The first string in this subroutine. Its line number is different in different patches, for the Rogue's MGQ3 patch it's 355416. Add mov %item07,0: to the start of this string. Save, start game, load autosave data, start Port Natalia route, save at the firt save location. Then restore 0.txt from the backup, load this last save and play.

GC345 (talk) 22:10, October 24, 2014 (UTC)

Done as you said and it did work thus far: the location "Port Natalia" appeared and the story continued. I will look out for any other strange behaviour, although I hope it will go as well as it did most of the time. Thank you for your effort! Hopefully this case will warn others too not to change the fix thoughtlessly during a game play.

Kargadan (talk) 22:40, October 25, 2014 (UTC)

Your savegame was damaged not because you have changed patch versions. NScripter sometimes changes variable values inproperly. Most known "cases" are - no "Hit by all reqiestable chapter ... technoques" achievement, no Fallen Angel Dance after Keepsake ring broken etc.

I have added a string about "Please load autosave data if you have installed a new patch version" to the patch page.

GC345 (talk) 22:53, October 25, 2014 (UTC)

Two minor typos: on line 60495 (tamomo discussing tower strategies) "mass their forces" should be "amass their forces", and on line 64541 (plansect villiage fight vs. angels) "founder in confusion" should be "flounder in confusion"

??? (talk) ##:##, Month ##, Year (UTC)

Gnome's skill "Mud Doll Groin Fondle" is bugged in that it only gets credited for the first hit, the rest are given to Mud Doll Caress. And that includes the credit for the orgasm. Easily fixed by going to skillname "Mud Doll Groin Fondle" and replacing skillcount1 3258 with skillcount1 3259 (lines 122443,122456,122470, and 122482.

Nero Yagami (talk) 18:50, March 28, 2016 (UTC)

Tnx. Will be fixed in Beta 12. Was added in the Rogue's patch, the japan version 3.03 is ok.

I plan to check all skillcount values but it will be later.

GC345 (talk) 01:34, March 29, 2016 (UTC)

"Sean235 (the return to the Lady's village) have nametag problems". Can't reproduce the bug.

GC345 (talk) 06:48, December 19, 2016 (UTC)

I tried placing the 0.txt file into the game directory. Every time I do it though it seems to cause even more bugs, with most of the monster names losing the first letter and adding a space between the second and third letters. This even has affected some menu options, including battle menus, move names, etc. It also seems to to no longer recognize text I've read for skipping purposes. Am I doing something wrong here. JeruTz (talk) 04:06, April 1, 2019 (UTC)

Win10Shit only. Can't fix. Maybe can be fixed with latest NScripter executable... GC345 (talk) 11:04, April 1, 2019 (UTC)

EDIT: I've since found a workaround for the above issue. Right click the application, and under properties there's a tab called Compatibility. Simply turn Comppatibility Mode on for an earlier version (I used windows 7). JeruTz (talk) 00:09, January 22, 2020 (UTC)

Found two errors. Lines 133750 and 294119 use $mogaku_anno4 when they should use $mogaku_anno3. (The former affects the insect trio battle when Luka attempts to attack while bound by the caterpillar girl. The latter seems to affect every battle where Luka has to attack while bound to either win or break free). JeruTz (talk) 21:21, January 22, 2020 (UTC)

Script questions

  1. If [ruka]/skill_wind=1 - all 4 spirit levels are set to 0. The reason?
  2. If %owaza_num1<2 and if %owaza_num2<2 in *status_sel2, *common_mogaku2, *mogaku_earth2. Replace <2 to =1?
  3. 4 effect dlls (breakup.dll, lngtwave.dll, trvswave.dll, whirl.dll) possible parameters.
  4. Disable the common attack miss for the EX difficulty?

GC345 (talk) 08:03, May 16, 2016 (UTC)

Some technical questions:

  1. Any info about the seteffectspeed command?
  2. Any support for the "/" command (no new line) in the english text output (>)?
  3. Why this *censored* NScripter use very thin font lines if the codepage isn't 932?  Found the fix. Deleted the envdata file and started MGQ3 with Applocale (I use the piaip version to avoid the mojibake in Windows Installer). P.S. Must backup the save directory before this because the game creates new blank gloval.sav after this.
  4. String sprite colors are different with lsp and strsp commands? It looks like strsp adds black border even with bold/shadow=0.
  5. A way to fix words wrapping? The counter is wrong if the space was in the even position (as the result - there is 1 ieroplyphic space before the wait cursor).

The "notif" command bug in MGQ3 NScripter

Well, there is a problem.

There are 2 logical expressions. 1st is "if (A<>B) and (C<>D)", 2nd is "notif (A=B) or (C=D)". IMHO, they are equal. The trouble is - NScripter thinks differently.

To be more precise - strings are if $skill_tag<>"skillcounter0" && $skill_tag<>"skillcounter1" && $skill_tag<>"skilltame0" && $skill_tag<>"skilltame1" && $skill_tag<>"skilltame2" skip 9 and notif $skill_tag="skillcounter0" | $skill_tag="skillcounter1" | $skill_tag="skilltame0" | $skill_tag="skilltame1" | $skill_tag="skilltame2" skip 9. The first line works correctly, the second isn't.

WtF? Notif not supports the "|" (or) operator?

Help, anyone?

GC345 (talk) 14:10, July 10, 2016 (UTC)

Ok, I have tested the notif command with the simple script:

mov $sub1,""
for %sub1=2 to 5
if %sub1<4 && %sub1 mod 2=0 add $sub1,"+":skip 2
add $sub1,"-"
notif %sub1<4 && %sub1 mod 2=0 add $sub1,"+ ":skip 2
add $sub1,"- "
eng $sub1:$sel6
mov $sub1,""
for %sub1=2 to 5
if %sub1<4 | %sub1 mod 2=0 add $sub1,"+":skip 2
add $sub1,"-"
notif %sub1<4 | %sub1 mod 2=0 add $sub1,"+ ":skip 2
add $sub1,"- "
eng $sub1:$sel6\

The result must be "+- -+ -+ -+" and "+- +- +- -+".

Well, it isn't. "+- -- -- -+" and "+- ++ +- -+". "Notif" not works correctly with both logical operations. *Censored*.

So I go to kill all "notif"s with "&&" and "|" in the code. The good point is - "notif" can be replaced by "if" with the negative condition. And the negative condition can be simplified by de Morgan's laws...

GC345 (talk) 17:45, July 10, 2016 (UTC)

Have replaced all "notif"s with complex conditions to "if"s.

I hope there is no more bugs like this.
