A few things I'd like to point out.

This patch does NOT work with the stage unlock patch.

The installer cannot install over the english files (ie, it can't reinstall itself, it relies on pulling the original 6p files instead of dumping the edited version on top), and uninstalling deletes all your MBAC files, so there is no way to "revert" back to the original (despite the deceptive "uninstall mbac english exe") short of completely reinstalling your game.

Replacing the exe will cause this patch to stop working.

MB* English are designed to be games in themselves, as such there is no way to "un-patch" an installation. Also it's as designed that reinstalling the same version of MBAC English will make it ask for the DVD: It's in repair mode. To make sure that all required files are present and working it will (re)copy them from the DVD.

That's rather obvious... :roll:

It was more elaboration on the fact that the stage patch relies on replacing the exe.

If you have AF and FSAA enabled in your global video settings, disable it for Melty Blood. If this doesn't work, post a screenshot and tell us what verison of the drivers you are using (Ex, 169.12)

Windows XP SP3
core 2 duo e8400 3.60 ghz
radeon HD4870
2 gbs ram ddr2 800mhz

Having a "little" issue here, although I suspect is because of the drivers (ati is known for their BAD driver support).

If I select 60 fps as "Game Wait" in detailed config (well, that's the default), the game runs internally at 48 fps. If I select more than 64, it runs at 64. This really screws up combos and stuff, as the game runs 4 frames quicker. I don't know if anyone else had this problem, and I don't know if it's a drivers issue or a patch issue, but I really doubt is the later. I'm about to change to nvidia :(
This game ran as it should with my old agp x1600. Really frustrating.

Bye, hope it helps.

EDIT: I just found a workaround, I don't know if it may cause any problems, but ticking the "Increase CPU Priority Level" seems to fix this for me. And I don't have any cpu eating background programs. Weird.

The nVidia options are located in Display in Control Panel and have their own tab. You can see these in the the following images (I'm on Windows XP x64, but the settings should be similar).
These are for changing the global settings.




You can view how change the settings for individual programs in the following images





I haven't tested this myself, but maybe this'll help.

If you still want to use that stage patch (unsupported), just rename that exe to something else like mbacPC-stage_patch.exe and run it. It 'should' work fine, but there's no guarantee. If it doesn't work, then you could try renaming the English exe to something else then rename the stage patch exe to mbacPC.exe (not recommended). Other than that, I wouldn't have a clue.

Modifying settings didn't work for me either. But in Act Cadanza you can just press F12 and you don't have to see the lines of death any more. =P

I've got some problems with Act Cadenza Ver.B.


-Apparently when the game tries to load Nrvnqsr's level (The Alley Way?) the game stops functioning and kicks me off.
-The background of Millennium Castle has mysteriously vanished.
-Part of Sion's level (The Building or whatever) is black inside of the ground.
-Wallachia appears for a few attacks but otherwise he is invisible for the entire battle.
-A few cutscenes in the Arcade mode don't have voice overs (Although this is realatively minor.)

Arcade mode in Melty Blood Act Cadenza Ver. B doesn't work for me.

It plays the first cut-scene for the character I pick, then before it goes to the fighting, the game crashes.. I really don't know why.

I've tried redownloading it off a different source, and the same thing happens.

Are you saying you downloaded the game or the patch from a different source? Either way, its illegal. Its against the law to download the game and its against the rules to talk about warez.

I've given my copy of MBAC to a friend of mine, oddly, though, the game does not start for him.
"Application could not start. Thunk32.dll is corrupt or missing." is the error message that shows.
I tried running the same copy on other systems. It works fine - both on windows and even (GASP!) WINE, so the game's fine.
He tried downloading the DLL and putting it in the system32 folder, but it had no effect.
I thought, maybe the DLL is supposed to be somewhere else? So I searched several computers with WinXP for the DLL on which my copy was tested, and came up with nothing.
Any ideas?

...Drat. I forgot to check his specs before posting this. Well, his OS is WinXP.
If no one has any ideas, I'll update with all specs later.
