I tried it and nothing has changed.
But thanks for the reply.

Believe it or not I just had the same problem (Running Windows XP Service Pack 3)

I lost all the sound on my PC except for Kana, Crescendo which seems to have a similar underlying game engine also had sound. But nothing else did.

Ended up reinstalling the drivers for my soundcard and got the sound back. Unfortunately, I'm not going to use the patch. Worked like a charm, with the exception of screwing up my sound.

Closing the game through task manager also ends the sound.
When I run the game with the original exe no sound plays, it seems directly related to the patch.
One thing I forogt to mention:
I never had the problem with patch before, this time I switched to fullscreen with the patch for the first time...
Maybe it's related to the library functions of it, which somehow cause the error.
Oh, and thanks for the fast reply! ^^

Unregistered Now I've got the Kana Patch to work, but after playing it for a while I've encountered a serious problem:
My computer doesn't play any kind of sound/music anymore unless I'm running Kana.
For example, I turn on music in Winamp, but I can only hear it when I'm running the game, once I turn it off the music stops playing (well, it continues to play, but my speakers won't play it for some reason).
I've already tried restarting my pc and updating the drivers, but without success.
I have no idea how this strange bug could happen, but it makes me quite mad...

Zero Awesome, thanks for your hard work, Serke. I'll update my troubleshooting page with this new patch.

Kana -Little Sister- BGM patch v1.2 (bug fix + some internal changes)

There are some scenes in the game (like this one - those who played Kana will probably remember it) where you can't fast-click your way through the text lines as there's some delay after each line is printed. The value for the delay is calculated based on the playback position within the currently playing audio track. The previous versions of the patch contained a bug which prevented the game from properly calculating the value and as a result the delay couldn't be implemented. The bug is now fixed, see the updated link in the previous post.

Message Though I'm not going to be replaying this game anytime soon, I'd still like to tell you: Great work! It is very nice indeed to see people still dedicated to working on older projects, even if such work would have a small potential userbase. Not to jump into hyberbole, but I really think it's initiatives like this that can bring the 'fan' back in fan works. Just what the community at large needs, these days.

Kana -Little Sister- BGM patch v1.2 (click here to download)


The new, rewritten from scratch version of the patch is finally ready. It fixes some annoying glitches of the previous version, such as:

- the noticeable sound glitch upon scene transition, when the music fades out and the next track begins to play
- the music playback being choppy to the point of being unlistenable when the hardware sound acceleration is turned off
- the music playback not pausing when the window is minimized or out of focus

Version 1.2: text delay bug is fixed

Music formats other than OGG are not supported anymore as I felt there's no point in supporting them - OGG is better than MP3, WAV takes too much disk space and if I wanted the best possible quality, I'd rather add support for FLAC. If you have a different opinion on the matter, please let me know. I'm open to suggestions.

The importand note: the patch is also a NoCD patch, meaning that after you install the patch and copy the necessary files from the game's CD to the folder where you previously installed the game (actually, there's only one file which has to be copied - OP.DOM), you don't need the CD anymore. Guess what that means? That's right: you can finally break your CD if that's what you want. Thanks to Rasqual Twilight for the idea. :-)

The other thing you should know is that the executable in the archive is the patched executable from official uncensor patch. The previous patch was based on the original executable from the first (censored) version of the game.


Patch installation instructions:

1. Go to the folder where your game is installed and make a backup copy of KANAUS.EXE (rename it to something like KANAUS.EXE.BAK or just move it to some other place, it's up to you)
2. Copy the content of the archive with the patch (KANAUS.EXE and BASS.DLL) to the folder with the game
3. Copy OP.DOM from you game CD to the folder with the game
4. Create a folder named 'CD' within the folder with your game
5. Use CDEx (you can use any other program capable of ripping audio tracks and encoding them to OGG, but I suggest using CDEx) to rip the game music to OGG. Rename the OGG files to 'track02.ogg' (please note that the first track should be named 'track02.ogg') through 'track17.ogg' then place them in the previously created folder 'CD'.

Why not put the original disc in instead of using an image?
Probably because there's no "original" disc.

You can play music from .ISO + .SUB by mounting it into Daemon Tools CD\DVD-drive emulator. By using combination of DT & CDEx (good GPL audiograbber) you can extract the OST as MP3\OGG (i'd preffer OGG (^_^) ) and then use them with Serke's custom patch (read above).

P.S. Personally, i hate to use CD images AND CDs (any protection steals spirit of joy from the game).

Oscar Hey I have just finished Kana - Little sister - for the first time, what a good graphic novel, I loved it, lucky me I got first the "LIVE NOW" ending and the "BEST ENDING" the second time, I was very sad in the meanwhile between them, but now I'm smiling thinking of what could have passed after that "FIRST FAREWELL" maybe the "FIRST MEETING AS LOVERS" oh yeah, I love this game, I feel like a princess-girl right now... Are there some games like this one? I mean, so deep and emotional but at the same time nice?

I've already got Crescendo (my favorite by now), Heart de Roommate, Hourglass of Summer... Nothing else... Please tell me at my mail I would really appreciate it! oscar_encinas_pattzy@hotmail.com

The only thing I didn't fully enjoy Kana - Little sister -, is because I had to fight agains many troubles with it, the installer showed me errors due to the conversion and XP compat as I see, the game ran well WITHOUTH MUSIC, but ran well... Uncensoring it modified the original exe and I had to take it to Win 98/ME compat mode for being able to change full screen/window mode... Censored worked just fine without any troubles like those... But well, the 98/ME comat mode fixed it, but ruined the intro (wich I love) in fullscreen, so the conclusion is: WAS RUNNING PERFECTLY BEFORE UNCENSORING IT.

But about the music... I played without it, and I've tried everything but that solution in wich we had to convert, rip, etc... 'Cause I can't do it!!! But I really would appreciate too if you tell me how to listen to Kana's music in a image file, yes... I've got it un an image I wish I could buy the original, truly deserves being buyed... Or having the Okaeri version fully translated into english but voices would be perfect, isn't it? But well... I think that's never going to happen... So please pimp my ride... No, just kidding... So please, how can I hear the music from a .ISO (along with a .SUB) image file? I try opening with WMP when the image is mounted but it just shows me the D.O. logooooooooooooo, please, write to my mail: oscar_encinas_pattzy@hotmail.com

Thank you very much for your time!
