Unread postby eclipsezero » May 14th, 2010, 5:55 am

That depends if you want to keep the original Melty Blood game.

If you want it separated, then install Re-Act in a different folder.

Well...i installed it in a separate folder.
I can't play Story and Arcade modes ;_;
Whenever i try to enter them, nothing happens. I can only play VS
Was i supposed to install it in the Melty Blood folder after all, to play Arcade mode?
Also, is there any addition to story mode in ReAct?

I think you just installed the Trial version...

If it's not the trial version, backup the original Melty Blood (if you want it separate) then install Re-Act in the same folder.

I don't know why people keep saying that. You CANNOT install MB English and MBR English into the same folder. And you SHOULD NOT install the Japanese games into the same folder, either.

There's an error i get when installing through the english patch:
Deletion of existing files failed, possibly the game is still running.
Please restart installation procedure after closing the game.

So i have to install through J setup then use the patch.
However, now that i have installed J ReAct in the same folder as MB, when i try to install the patch, it shows 1.7 GB needed, AKA it will install the entire Re-Act.
However, when i install J React in a separate folder and then use patch, it only shows a few MB's of usage.
Am i doing something wrong?
Also, its the full version of ReAct.
EDIT:
Posted this without reading your Message...Message.
So, i install ReAct into a separate folder. But then how doi access its story and arcade modes? Do i need to complete MB first?

No. You can play them in MBR directly.

Well, i reinstalled ReAct in a separate dir...and i can't play Story/Arcade mode.
There's no error, no hanging up, nothing. i just can't access them, though i can play VS and Training just fine.
Also, readme says something about a subtitled OP, does React have a different opening? Mine just went straight to the title screen after the first few screens..
I am pretty sure this is the full version...
But just in case, any way to verify whether this is the full version or not?

If it's a legal copy, then no, that's great. But I do assume you downloaded something from mirrormoon.org, right? If you let the MB Eng and MBR Eng installers just install the game for you, things should be entirely ok. Arcade mode was added in MBR, so I really don't see how you wouldn't be able to play arcade mode.

Well, MB installed just fine (First installing J version, then patch over it, don't remember if i got an error by installing with patch)
However with ReAct (Quoting myself now)

There's an error i get when installing through the english patch:
Deletion of existing files failed, possibly the game is still running.
Please restart installation procedure after closing the game.

And the game is not even running, what do i do?

Does it also give that error if you try to install MBR English to a new (not-existing) directory? You can try skipping that error by running the installer with --nonfatal command line parameter. If you do, please report any error messages it throws at you, it may help me isolate the problem. Other than that, what OS are you running this on?

In that case, do you have an older version of the patch installed? If yes, manually delete the start menu folder called "Watanabe Productions\MeltyBlood ReACT" for both your user and all users (MeltyBlood without space), and try again.

Go to the command prompt (cmd.exe), change directory to where you downloaded the installer (cd command) and run the installer with the parameter appended to it: installer.exe --nonfatal

Patch is the latest version.

Also, installation worked with the nonfatal cmd <3

...though it was kind of useless.
I feel kind of ashamed to say this, but it turns out it was working after all, i was merely pressing the wrong key ._.;
I assumed it was Z since with Z i could get into versus/training modes, whereas i need to use N to get into arcade and story modes -_-;
I am really sorry for wasting your time, please forgive me...
This is just a suggestion, but would it be a good idea to include a control guide within the patch? That way, no one will end up making a stupid mistake like me...
Well, i have one final question now, regarding story mode.
Is it the same between the original MB and ReAct? Or should i play MB story first and then react? Or is the new story within the arcade mode?

Ah, so you're talking about the English patched game...

and here I am thinking that you are just installing the original Japanese version, that's why I told you to install it in a different folder in the first place.

Story mode is the same in MBR and MB. Arcade mode is an extra short story, and can be played separately.

Thanks for answering!
And thanks for helping out : 3
And perhaps now this topic should be locked (To prevent necrobumping)
