Voice Only Patch (Unsupported)

This page is for manual install only. We highly recommend using the automated installer as installing manually can be error prone. Please see the Cross Platform Installer, and follow the instructions

Sometimes you just want the voices and enjoy the beautiful original art, I get it. Yeah, that's no joke, I really like the original art.

We offer the below patches so you can enjoy the vanilla game with voices if you really want. But please note:

We do not offer end-user support for the voice-only patch.

If you encounter bugs or missing features, we probably won't help you with it.

The exception to this rule is when we are releasing a new episode. Usually we do a quick voice-only patch just after the game comes out. Later we release the full graphics patch. During this time, when the voice only patch is available, we will offer support for it.

Installing the patch automatically

We highly recommend using the installer:

The installer's "voice only" patch was updated on 12-04-2020. If the installer's voice-only doesn't work, please let us know.

Installing the patch manually

  1. Download all the archives for the game you are patching (See the below "Downloads" table). For 'Patch', do not download the 'Source Code' file.
  2. Open your game folder
    1. Open your Steam library, choose the game from the list, right click on it and click on Properties. Switch to the LOCAL FILES tab and click on Browse local files...
  3. Repeat the following for each archive
    1. Each archive should contain a single HigurashiEp0X_Data folder. Overwrite the game's HigurashiEp0X_Data with the one in the archive. Merge and/or overwrite the files if asked.

Archives were updated 12-04-2020. If the instructions don't seem to match the archives contents, please let us know.

Why do you offer no support for the voice only patch?

Our long term plans are to have a "voice-only" mode in the full patch, which would make the standalone voice-only patches redundant.
