EDIT: As of 2020, we are still in great need of translators as the translation has come to a standstill. If you are still interested in helping us translate, please send the group a note!

With that being said, we advise using ATB/ATLAS/IGTH/ATH to get a faster translation. It may be rough but it will definitely get the job done!

Hello all, it's been a while!

Unfortunately there's not much to say in terms of progress. So far the introduction (Beginning scene of the game) is about 98% translated. Some of the conversations from characters have been roughly translated as well.
Most of the main events though, have not been translated yet.

Summarizing though, translation is still happening but it's moving very slowly. This is mostly due to our translators being busy with real-life activities that must take higher priority. Their efforts are welcomed though and we're very thankful that they are willing to help us despite their business!
Still, with summer approaching, we're hoping to see a boost in activity!

This journal is meant to send out a request to those who can read Japanese and translate to English (Or those who know people who can do this). We're always looking  for more translators to translate the game script.

We ask that translators know enough Japanese and English to not rely on the use of a translation program. (Or at least, are majorly reliant on such programs. We all need a little help sometimes.)
This is due to the inaccuracy of translation programs that can really throw a translation off (or a whole scene!)

If you're willing to donate a bit of your time (even if it's just to translate a few lines) we'd really appreciate it if you could send the group a note for more information!

If you prefer not to wait for the translation process, AvalonMelody has written a tutorial on how to use Anime Games Text Hooker/Interactive Text Hooker, ATLAS, and Translation Aggregator. Using these tools, you can get a rough translation of the game's dialogue as you play without editing the game!

Important Information

Alternate Translation Method

There are other ways of understanding the game without editing it or waiting for the translation to be complete. Using text-hooking programs combined with a translator, you can get rough translations that will allow you to play through the game. Click the link above for more information and how to set these things up!

Feel free to edit the pages to include more information or event summaries! While we cannot edit the game, walkthroughs and summaries are still okay!

- Please send the group a note or message an admin to request a link to the translation spreadsheet!
-> We will only accept those who can read Japanese without reliance on a translator program. Please note that we may be supplying a short couple of lines from the sheet to test you if necessary.

Thank you for supporting the project!

Is the game English!? Is there an English version!?

There is no English version of the game.
Tomoyoshi, the creator of Cancel a Format, has specifically asked the game files not be changed, therefore a Translation Patch cannot be made.

There is however, a set of tools that can be used to read the dialogue without editing the game. These do not give a 100% accurate translation however but they do give a good enough one to be able to play the Visual Novel.

Click here to learn more about the tools.

"I notice in journal they remove game links they say.
They can still link to game for people to have )) just not edited version if ok."


We have received permission from Tomoyoshi to put the links up to the original Cancel a Format game! It is the unedited/original version.
The link is below (And now on the front page!)

Those with the game file currently in their possession, we ask you to please respect Tomoyoshi's request and not distribute any edits nor modify this game..

If you wish to share the game, please link to the where they can use the download link.

Hello, are you still translating the game? I heard that the creator Tomoyoshi forbids screenshots of the game, is this true?

Sorry to ask but, is the archive bugged to anyone else? The options on screen and documents aren't in japanese despite the change already being done, instead they are in a jumble of signs and words. After a certain point, the game just shuts down.

hw do you download the game? I download once like 5 years ago, but I can't seem to get around it now. Whenever I extracted, the computer doesn't get the Japanese and thus does not allow me to play it even though my computer settings are set to Japanese. I was wondering if maybe I'm using the wrong link (i'm using ver. 1.04).

...So the links are the full game? Free? I feel like I'm missing something.

Hello, I just want to ask that where do I have to click to check the hearts of the boys? I can't find it anywhere, maybe 'cause I don't know Japanese ;;;w;;;

Hello, is this still ongoing? I just want to know. I'm just another English-speaking fan who wants to play this game. So, I apologise for being so useless;;

But I want to know if you are still looking for translators or have you cancelled in translating the game because it goes against Tomoyoshi's wishes to tamper with the game? I'm just wondering...
Stoneunicorn1 Featured By Owner Jan 14, 2017
I think it's still ongoing haven't looked at the spreadsheet for a long time now e.e no don't say you're useless >:c you can still play this game in japanese with other translation programs :)…

Yes translators are always welcome! We've canceled making an english patch of it so yes because Tomoyoshi didn't want us too.
