Student Transfer - Fate Grand Transfer Ver 3.2 (Fixed!)


Apologies for the delay and the rather long haitus. I kinda hit a slump when Covid-19 occurred and truth be told, this Scenario had been completed since February 2020 and the only thing that was missing was a QA test.

Student Transfer - Scenario: Body Thief 3.2
Featuring Fate/Grand Transfer Story line!
(V4.6 Compatible now!)

So as some of you know... this Blog is generally focused around Body Swap captions and part of those captions were Anime ones... which don't worry... I do intend to continue... but I'm still in a bit of a slump.

So you're probably wondering what Fate/Grand Transfer is all about and what it has to do with Student Transfer? ABSOLUTELY NOTHING!!!

Originally I wanted to introduce a Fate Body Swap Caption as well, using maybe Prisma Illya, but that idea never took off and the draft still sits in my caption folder.

Then I discovered Student Transfer (Game can be found here: Student Transfer) and then it dawned on me, that maybe... I could write a Body Swap story through a game and more importantly... a Fate Story and thus Fate/Grand Order was born.

For those of you who are only interested in Student Transfer, then don't worry! I have that covered for you and there is a ST only edition featuring just John and his friends.

This time around I have broken down the number of methods you can use to download and install the Scenario!

For Student Transfer/The Base Game ONLY (YOU MUST HAVE THIS INSTALLED!):
Google Drive: Body Theft 3.2

Fate/Grand Transfer: Fuyuki Chapter DLC:
Google Drive: FGT-Fuyuki Chapter

Fate/Grand Transfer: Orleans Chapter DLC:
Google Drive: FGT-Orleans Chapter

Student Transfer Scenario: Body Theft - Fate/Grand Transfer Complete Edition with Patch Files!:

Patch Fix/Quick Fix!
Google Drive: Fuyuki Patch

Orleans/Complete Edition Patch
Google Drive: Orleans Patch

IMPORTANT PLEASE READ!!! The Base Files should would without these! For the Fate stuff you simple need to have everything installed then download the quick fix patches then copy cs1, cs2, gilgamesh and galahad and put it in the character folder for Fuyuki. For Orleans you will need to copy and paste cs1, cs2, galahad, gilgamesh and nero and replace the existing files in character folder. If you patch in the Orleans version with the Fuyuki version or add in just the complete version. Please go to character > shadow > outfits and faces and delete the png file of 0 and shadow

IF IT DOESN'T WORK! Please delete and reinstall the current version here should work as I have feedback of it working. Please note if you manually patch in you need to delete the .rpyc files in the scenario script folder inside body thef scenario folder. Alternatively a clean install of the scenario will make it run and should run for 5.2, but I still recommend a 4.6 or 4.7 version of ST

Version 3.2 has been tested on version 4.5 and therefore should be compatible on version 4.6 of Student Transfer. The Scenario will be updated for 5.2 but requires some code fixing due to the changes made to the Original Game. THIS SCENARIO IS NOT COMPATIBLE FOR ANDROID

In order to install the scenario please extract the files and copy the Body Theft Folder within. In you are Confused please read the README file.

I also got a Discord where you can drop feedback, have some discssion and ask general questions!

Character Expansion Pack: (REQUIRED FOR BODY THEFT)

Note: Another friendly reminder, PLEASE NOTE that the Fate/Grand Order Characters are NOT free for use as it cost the rippers money to roll the gacha for the heroes in order to acquire their sprites as well as Game Time. 

You are free to use the characters within the Character pack, but please remember to give credit.

Please also remember to drop a comment and provide some feedback

Also I would appreciate it, if you guys would watch the Opening and the Ending that is inserted into the route. Please also brace yourself, the story should last around 3~4 hours worth of reading/game play.

You can skip the additional scenes, but for the full experience please go through it all and let me know what you all thought of it.

How to Get onto the Fate Route:
Once you hit the Day 1, School Entrance Scene. Please select the End of the World option and progress onto the Fate Route. This route is linear with a few side stories that branches back into the story. Please avoid skipping the story and try to play through it normally. 
(It will reduce errors)

How to play the Student Transfer Body Theft Story:
I would recommend playing through from John and Zoey's perspective then going back and playing through from the perspective of the other characters.

WARNING: The same story/day is told from the perspective of various characters. I advise saving before continuing

How to Install:
1: Download and unzip the game.
2: Delete the existing Body Theft Scenario (If it is already installed)
3: Download and install the base version of Body Theft and the KawaiiSwitcher Character pack
4: Download the Fuyuki Chapter and install it and overwrite the existing files which will patch it in
5: Download the Orleans chapter and replace and overwrite the existing files (This should work without Fuyuki but best if you install it all)

How to Install with pictures!

1. Extract Here 

2. KawaiiSwitcher Character pack can go straight in, for Body Theft, please go inside the folder and copy Body Theft into Scenario. If you extract each to seperate folder, please go inside and get the Body Theft Folder!

3. Install it in scenario as seen

4. Take the 5 folders from the patch files and then copy and paste them into body theft > character folder and replace them.

Patch Note and Fixes
3.2 Updates (Orleans Update)
Body Theft (Student Transfer Only) Updates

1) Perspective told from Alex, Jack and the Teachers p.o.v
2) Minor Extensions to existing storylines including Izuna, John & Yui, Zoey in John's body, Kiyoshi, Newspaper Club and Jess
3) New Characters added in and their introduction

Fate/Grand Transfer Updates
- New Fate Route covering the Orleans Arc
- Added new Characters, Music, BG, SFX, Assets, Movies and added a whole new chapter
- Orleans contains 4,312 lines with roughly 33,626 words/237,270 characters
(In comparison, Fuyuki has 3,436 lines with roughly 26,877 words/182,586 characters... so please don't just rip my content, I will honestly be upset...)

- Significantly reduce file size!

Author's Note:
This version of the game has been made to be compatible with the 4.6 version of Student Transfer but is not compatible for Mobile and 5.2 is was partially tested.
Minor adjustment and corrections has been made to the Fuyuki Chapter of Fate.
Orleans has now been completed and released! Please enjoy and leave some feedback!
Student Transfer side of things, the story has been expanded upon. The storyline will be much more streamline and linear, however the story will branch down the same story but from the perspective of other characters.

Additional Comment: I have created a new cast of characters which will be introduce into the Student Transfer later on. There will be a lot more 'Powers' and will feature a variety of characters with ability... and TIME TRAVEL!!!
