Seraphic Blue (セラフィックブルー) is a 50+ hour epic RPG made by Tempura in RPG Maker 2000 v1.51, and is highly-received in the Japanese RPG Maker community, most notably for its story. It has 2 versions: the original (made in 2004) and Director's Cut (made in 2006). The version translated here is Director's Cut.

Seraphic Blue is well-known for its
- Deep and intriguing atypical dark storyline with a deep underlying message
- Highly creative custom battle and menu systems
- Flexible equipping with the Sphere System
- Precise cutscene transitions and dialogue pauses, making the cutscenes feel more alive.
- Custom artworks to accompany some cutscenes
- Awesome music and well-used sound effects
and many more.

NOTE1: This is NOT created by me. It is created by a man named Tempura (known as Sakaki in the game credits). I am the sole translator of this game (with kumada as the proofreader), and I have permission to translate this game from Tempura himself. Credits to Tempura and his team for creating such an awesome game :)

Blog 42: Revised Title Screen

Hi everyone!

Well, this blog serves to talk about a minor revision to the title screen. I've been meaning to revise the text in the title screen 'cause, you know, the Engrish options that are New-Birth of Blue, Revive of Blue and Away from Blue. And so today, I've done just that and you can see the revised title screen:



I wanted to keep the "Blue" part, so only the 1st two options have been revised. Let me know what you all think if you will, but I think I'm pretty satisfied with this version and if nothing else, I will put this as the new title screen for this game.

My mind is full of fuck.

So, is Seraphic Blue Altered getting translated?
Ep30_s݋S+T景.png and Ep37_Tt.png are broken, or rather, cannot be read, for the same reason that this here Texteditor can't display all of the characters contained in the filename.

I'm currently at EP19, and am afraid to need to stop later because of this.
Does anyone know what I can do to make these files be a) functional and b) not mess with the RPG-Maker script looking for them?

Thanks in advance.

lol editing....


If you mean Don Miguel's RTP addon 1.32, you can also download that from Makerpendium:

https://www.makerpendium.de/download/rtp/2000/RTP132e.exe
Hi! RTP download has Bad Error. I still can't play game. I do have an RPG Maker RTP, can I add that to file? Thanks!
It is not. It is due to certain japanese characters wrongly extracted on other computers than english/japanese. From what I saw in the folders, those are empty files. If you want to try another extraction, you can try to put your computer on japanese locale and unzip it. Else, you can bypass the problem by extracting and playing the game using EasyRPG, like the guy above stated.
From what I remember, the game had some missing files, but it was like, in 2014, so I guess it was solved since then (I played it a little recently and had no problem).
I try to extract the zip but I am getting header errors. The download may be corrupted?
Greetings, after a long disappearance from the community, I am back

This is a quandary I and others have had, and I will put it to rest since I found an answer:

Q: Why am I having trouble playing Seraphic Blue or any RM2k games on Win 10 and above and why are people mentioning RM2K games on an actual console, how can people do that?
A: EasyRPG (https://easyrpg.org/) is what people use to play it on consoles and can circumvent the compatibility issues for PC users, it is like the Retroarch of RM games. All you need do is just slap it into the folder and run the program, it will play the game using the files of the folder as it emulates the launcher. Easy RPG also has other functions that regular RM2K does not such as screencaps and fast forward.

Correction, apparently in many cutscenes a sprite of Lake facing forward appears in various parts of the screen, I thought it was EasyRPG, but after Downloading DonMiguel's RM2k RTP it is happening even outside of it.
I’m really digging what Seraphic Blue brings. I’d be right at home on my Playstation. I know I’m late to the party, but consider me a fan.





hey, I just had a minor question related to RPGmaker translations - I've noticed that you translated all 729 map names in the map tree, did you rename each map one by one, or have you found a way to quickly edit the whole map tree in one go?
The link on the front page to Don Miguel's RTP doesn't seem to work this way (even though it's the same that I used). Perhaps it would be better to use the "link" function like in my previous post (left of the big "A", looks like an "8" rotated through 90°). When using the link on the front page, the "&" right of the first "0" seems to be missing - which, coincidentally, is the line break's starting point. Line breaks and links don't go together.

Don Miguel's RTP did the trick! Makes sense considering it's such an old game from that specific era. Thank you so much! Excited in getting into the game!

Good to hear! Front page link to RTP has also been updated to Don Miguel's RTP.

Maybe Don Miguel's RTP must be installed in order to play the game?

It's a good idea in general to follow the instructions in this post to make RPG Maker 2000 and 2003 games playable.

I'm not sure if anyone is reading this board anymore, but I tried to boot the game, but it complains that I haven't installed RTP, despite following the instructions here and doing just that. I have windows 10, so I wonder if that creates problems? Would love to play some old-school RPG Maker stuff, so that's why I'm still asking about this, instead of moving on! : O


Nice timing. Try running the game in Windows 7 or below compatibility mode?
