[English] [ILLUSION] Koikatu! / Koikatsu! (コイカツ!) BetterRepack R8

If you have trouble starting the game, start the game once through the launcher (InitSetting.exe), this will check for errors and fix them as well before starting the game.

This release contains translations from Koikatsu Party. I spent a lot of time getting it working properly, and I believe it now does so, but please tell me if you experience trouble with it. Do take note that Koikatsu Party only includes the first game with no expansions, so expansion content is still fantranslated and some is machine translated still.

Mods removed due to incompatibilities with Darkness:
VMDPlay v0.0.13

This is the readme for the pack, detailing the contents:​

Release 8 // 23.06.2019

No donations // no ad-maze // no upfront payment
If you paid for this, you were scammed!
If you like the game, please buy it on [B][URL="https://dlshop.illu-member.jp/products/detail.php?product_id=201"]DMM[/URL] or [URL="https://store.steampowered.com/app/1073440/"]Steam[/URL][/B] (~.~)v
If you enjoy the mods, please consider donating to the modders on patreon where possible.

This pack is made with a up2date base game as of 21.06.2019, along with the components listed in credits, all up2date as of the release date of this pack. Some extras have been included, but are either easily removable or are sorted into folders marked [OPTIONAL]. Enjoy!

To add shortcuts to your desktop of the launcher and the most important folders for the game, feel free to run '[BR] Create Desktop Icons.bat'.

If you have trouble starting the game, start the game once through the launcher (InitSetting.exe), this will check for errors and fix them as well before starting the game.

I don't recommend just extracting this over another repack, due to potential conflicts. Please extract this to its own folder and move over your chara, cap, studio and save folders.

If you wish to convert this pack into a vanilla pack, there is a included script named '[BR] Vanillify the game.bat' that gives you the following options:
 1. Remove only translation, leaving the rest of the mods intact
 2. Remove all BetterRapack Extras
 3. Remove VR
 4. Remove all BetterRepack Extras, mods, translation and VR
Feel free to use this script to customize your install, but keep in mind that using this may make the game incompatible with future repack updates, requiring you to download the next repack in full!

Feel free to DM me on discord (ScrewThisNoise#3544) with the card(s) and/or scene(s), and I'll see what I can do for the next release. (See community links for server link)

Share this pack as you want, re-host it or whatever.. I barely did anything, I just bundled other peoples work, so no need to credit me or anything. All credit goes to the modders actually making this possible
Feel free to tell me if you reupload the pack anywhere else! :)

I'd very much appreciate it if you would all think about supporting me on patreon, but keep in mind that I won't paywall my packs, this is just for supporting me making my packs better :)


As some of you have noticed, downloading content from the in-game downloader is quite the unstable experience. In order to offer multiple venues to aquire cards, I've acquired all available scene and card content on the official uploader (normaly only available from Japanese IPs) so that you may grab some of that content if you desire ;)


In case someone wants the community submitted cards for my pack without downloading the whole pack, here you go :D

Information added to my discord:

I'm running Malwarebytes and am getting warned about ransomware at seemingly random times when using the R7.1 update to R8, why?
Affected versions: R7.1 to R8 Update

I have received two reports, both from users of Malwarebytes, that they get warned that the file contains ransomware.

My best guess at what's going on here, is that the updater is touching a LOT of files (7789 files, where 1408 of them are file diff patchings, Lots of files in the party translation), and Malwarebytes sees that as a executable changing the content of 7789 files and makes a ruling that it's more than a little suspicious, and thusly gives a warning to the end user, and that also explains the seemingly random point when this "malware" is detected.

Now, this causes a dilemma for me, I do not want, nor believe, that you should take my word for it. I request that anyone with knowledge about such things perform their own third party check and not take my word for it.

For the rest of you, if you want to stay safe, I understand it if you'd rather not touch a file known to get warnings, false positive or not. The full pack download has no such warning, so feel free to use that if you'd rather do so.

I am looking into alternative ways to build my updaters to avoid this going forward as well. If you know a good way to build patchers that avoids this problem, please to tell me
Thanks 4 the repack, r u gonna repack or upload com3d2 once it releases as well?

I currently have no plans to tackle com3d2, but I've received several requests, so I'll keep it in mind if I run out of things to do and want another challange ;)
Hello First off Thank you very much for this!

First off thanks for the repack man.

Second off, its says it cant find the mono. I dont really know what that means. Do you have an idea of what my problem is?
