About the patch:

Cave Story is a fun little freeware Japanese game.

An English translation patch was created by AGTP for the PC version of the game. A Macintosh version of the game was created, but the PC-patching application didn't work with it, so it required manual patching.

This is an automatic Macintosh version of the patch which will also translate the room location names, which the manual method did not do.

With the release of a Universal Binary of Cave Story, the patch needed to be updated as well. This patch no longer works with older versions of the application. If you have an older version of the application you need to patch, the old version of the patch is available here.

Applying the patch:

If you haven't already downloaded Cave Story, download it from Nakiwo's site (it's the link right underneath the first screenshot on that page) and copy it off the disk image to wherever you want to keep it.

Next, download the Macintosh patch. The archive includes an application called "Doukutsu English Patch". Drop the Doukutsu application onto the patcher. After a brief pause, you should be informed that the application has been patched successfully. Open Doukutsu and wait for the main screen to come up. It should look something like the screenshot at the top of this page.

Note that if you have already manually patched your copy of Doukutsu, it shouldn't be necessary to re-download the application before applying the patch to get the room location names. However, if you run into trouble, it's a good idea to try patching a fresh copy of the application.

The patch should work on 10.4 and up, but probably won't work on earlier versions of Mac OS X. If you have comments or questions regarding the Mac version of the patch, contact Turtle.
