Muv-Luv Steam Update, PS Vita porting started!

The developers have been working hard to fix the bugs that were reported, and we’re ready to start porting Muv-Luv to PS Vita! We've fixed the following issues for Muv-Luv version 1.15:

1. Made all CGs available uncropped in the gallery. CGs larger than the screen can be scrolled.

2. Guaranteed that certain in-game animations will play at the correct speed.

3. Removed rain animation from one indoor scene.  

4. Increased size of font in credits for fort-class sponsors.  

5. Moved Steam notifications overlay to prevent it from covering important game elements.  

6. Fixed bug that forced game text to be visible when taking a screenshot with F12.

7. Fixed a bug preventing the user’s clicks from registering immediately after toggling the display language. 

8. Fixed a bug causing certain scenes to randomly trigger an error message when seen for the first time.

9. Fixed an error in the birthday CG. 

10. Fixed one untranslated CG in Tama’s route. 

11. Fixed a bug causing the wrong date to be displayed on save files under certain circumstances. 

12. Fixed typo on the overwrite save prompt.

Muv-Luv Alternative CODEX Progress Report

      Well it seems its finally time to play the game as it was meant to be played....or pretty much as close as we can get since western nations are self conscious about certain media.

    2. Patrick J. Miller on

      I'm pretty dumb. I can't tell if the the game on steam updated to 1.15 or not.

    3. Patrick J. Miller on

      Nevermind, I received the backerkit link. But is this director's cut patch. By the way does anyone know if this director's cut version will include the sex scenes or not?

    4. Patrick J. Miller on

      I haven't received my BackerKit link yet. And is this Director's Cut patch able to be used with the steam version of Muv-Luv?

    5. Shiro

      Finally the ultimate digital version is available! I want also the ultimate physical version ;3
      Thanks @The Muv-Luv Team :)

      @The Muv-Luv Team : which version of the game will be on the dvd ? the Director's Cut one and/or the all ages version ? Or maybe everyone will be able to choose which version of the game they want to receive ?

    7. KimbaWLion

      IT will NOT let me download says it forbidden....

      Three or four downloads later (backerkit allowed a re-download after re-visiting the page, and everything worked. Painful upload, but successful.

    9. The42gamer on

      Very happy with the boxart chosen for the physical DVD and Vita boxes. And the patch worked perfectly. Thanks for your hard work you guys

      Derrick Denton on

      Something is definitely corrupt, and Backerkit won't allow me to re-download the files. I think there's an issue here.

      The Directors Cut file is 118mb, the Part 1 / Z01 file is 32mb. If the final version is supposed to be 278mb (according to WinRAR), then something probably failed in the upload.

      Checksum error. The file is corrupt
      The archive is corrupt

    11. Playcool92 on

      Nice nice. That pic looks so hot btw, good choice!

    12. KimbaWLion

      Okay I am dumb... I run on steam it says Muv-Luv Ages 7.0 will these pages work etc? OR do I need to do something else...

    13. GAv on

      Awesome you guys were able to get the CGs uncropped!

    14. Robert Hendrie on

      Full screen is still a little buggy(could be my insider build 14971), but if you click on the taskbar then click on the game, it will go full screen.

    15. Radosław Wójciak on

      @The Muv-Luv Team
      Maybe you can add two alternatives which everyone can select on backeredit account? Just like Sekai Project do it on Grisaia series? First option with cover from campaign and second oryginalny (just like in Japan) cover?

    16. The Muv-Luv Team Creator on

      Hi everyone, you can check the patch installation guide here:… or here:
      P.S. Backers of certain tiers may see duplicates of each part of the patch. If this is the case, you only need to download one copy of part 1, and one of part 2.

    17. Chris Adamson on

      It's been a while since we heard anything about the Codex; now I'm eager to see what it's going to look like.

    18. Radosław Wójciak on

      "Director's Cut patch installation guide:

      Install Muv-Luv on Steam. Please make sure you are using the updated version (1.15).
      Start Muv-Luv once.
      If you are a backer and have download the patch in BackerKit -- please remove (uploads_*gibberish hexadecimal numbers*_2F) from the filename so that the two parts of the patch are named "" and "MuvLuv_DirectorsCut.z01", respectively.
      Extract the zip file, then run MuvLuv_DirectorsCut.exe to install the patch.
      P.S. If windows extractor and 7zip doesn't work, use WinRAR instead."

      Confirming what Shandara said. Was trying to use 7-zip and would not worked, installed Winrar and worked instantly after renaming.

      Shandara on

      Using WinRar worked.. they updated the comments on the backerkit as well to point a steamcommunity post that said not to use 7zip and such.

    21. Melody Haren Anderson on

      Yeah, I'm also having problems with it seeming corrupted since it says that or it's an unknown and milabeled file type.

      Renaming the files got it to finally work here. Had me worried for a bit!

    25. Jordan Chambers on

      Thanks, Radosław Wójciak. Your advice worked.

      Renaming didn't work for me either.

    27. Kevin James Fowler on

      Huh, renaming did work and now I am filled with shame for doubting.

    28. Paul Downs on

      Loving the cover artwork that's been chosen; can't wait to receive everything. This project will have provided a few mini Christmas days what with the gift bags, the game release, today with the patch and finally with the physical goods. Awesome stuff.

      Renaming the files has worked :)

    30. Kevin James Fowler on

      That doesn't fix the files in the zip folders, Radosław Wójciak

    31. Radosław Wójciak on

      Rename these files, to something like:

      Then you will be able to unzip.

    32. FaceEater MK II on

      First, thanks for the bugfix update. Second, the Sumika cover is a little too risky for customs :S

    33. Melody Haren Anderson on

      Yeah, I can't get it to extract, says either it's an unknown file type or corrupted (just part 1 so far).

      ProfesseurM on

      Will the physical version of the pc game include this patch ? i.e. will we get the full/18+ version on the dvd ?

    35. Jordan Chambers on

      I'm also having trouble trouble getting this patch to work.

      I downloaded the director's cut patch, but when trying to extract from either archive (part 1 or part 2) it's giving me some errors.

      These cover I had on 7-9 spot on my list...

    43. Randomacts on

      Glad to see an update. I can't remember did we ever get a real date that stuff will start to ship out?
