AI Shoujo - How to Unlock and Uncensor All Content (HF Patch)

Created by ManlyKloc   ::   Mar 24, 2020    


You don't have to manually install the H patch or mod the game to uncensor it, you can just use HF Patch to do it automatically and add a ton of new content along the way. This guide tells you what exactly it does, how to get it and how to install it.

Guide to Unlock All Content



About HF Patch



A patch for AI-Shoujo and AI-Syoujyo (AI*少女, the original Japanese release) with all free updates, fan-made English translations and essential mods. It will improve performance, add features, fix common issues, and allow you to load character cards and scenes found online. All this while still keeping the original, uncluttered feel of the game.

All content is tested and fixed (or removed) as needed before each update. HF Patch can repair many common problems, try it if you have issues with your game or mod setup. By default, it cleans the game before applying new mods, providing a stable platform for further modding. You can apply HF Patch over any game installation or repack without issues.

HF Patch does not contain the full game, paid expansions or any other pirated content. You have to buy the game and expansions separately.

  • You can see more info and the source code here.



What's Included?



HF Patch includes and installs by default:

  • Full uncensor with multiple different models.
  • H patch.
  • Free updates for AI-Syoujyo, including Studio (with full fan-made translation).
  • Fan-made translations and automatic machine translations to fill in gaps in official translation.
  • Most commonly used plugins and pretty much all modded clothes, it allows you to load almost all character cards available online.
  • Fixes for common issues with the game and mods like botched mod installs.
  • You can see a full list of what HF Patch contains by checking the [Components] section in the source code.
  • Note that HF Patch does not contain the full game, paid expansions or any other pirated content. The full game needs to be already installed for the patch to work.

How to Install It?



  • Buy and install AI-Shoujo.
  • Download the latest HF Patch release from here or here. You should get a single .exe file and 2 or more .bin files. You can place these files anywhere you want.
  • Install the latest HF Patch by running the .exe and following the wizard.
  • Done! You can now start the game launcher as usual and you will notice some new options straight away. You can remove the downloaded HF Patch installation files now if you want to save some space, but consider keeping them in case you need to fix your game in the future.

  • Note 1: By default the game is located in \Steam\SteamApps\common\AI-Shoujo (you also find the installation directory from your Steam library, click Properties and View local files).
  • Note 2: The default settings should work well for most users. If you want to get the full save, scroll down to the bottom of the "what to install" list.

FAQ / Notes



  • First of all, check the FAQ on the wiki here. If the FAQ didn't answer your question/issue, search the ai channels on the IllusionSoft Discord server. There are also some guides available on the server. If you need further help, feel free to ask in the #ai-help channel on the server.

Notes for HF Patch, I strongly recommend reading them!

  • You can configure many plugins by Pressing F1 and then "Plugin settings". You can also see most of the plugin hotkeys in this menu (and change them).
  • You can prevent Steam from showing you play the game by starting the .exe manually (not from the Steam library). Make your games private to be extra sure. The game can also run with Steam turned off. Just know that we won't judge you for your hours played.
  • If you verify game files in your Steam client, you will lose many features and have to re-run HF Patch to get them back. You can do this if you have issues as it will restore game files but not remove any of your data.
  • Included fan translations are only used to fill in the gaps in official translation (DLC, studio, mods).
  • Installing HF Patch will add free updates for the Japanese release, which contain Studio (separate exe file). For many people this is the only mode they use (apart from character maker to make characters for use in studio), so it is highly recommended that you check it out. You can see other people's creations and download their studio scenes from the Discord server.
  • The HF Patch download does not include content mods for Studio, they have to be downloaded separately because of their huge size. You can tell HF Patch to download them at the end of the installation.
  • HF Patch does not contain the full game, paid expansions or any other pirated content. The full game needs to be already installed for the patch to work.
  • If you have installed a previous HF Patch or separate mods it is recommended to remove all mods when prompted. This will prevent any potential mod conflicts or outdated mods causing problems.
  • It's recommended to install all content mods if you plan to download character cards - they are required by many cards and scenes.
  • All DLC/patches are optional and not required to install HF Patch.
  • You can run this patch as many times as you want and nothing will break. All mods are optional to install, and most can be removed by running the patch again.
  • It's recommended to install all content mods if you plan to download character cards - they are required by many cards and scenes.
  • You can use this patch to fix many broken game/mod installs.
  • Older versions of BepInEx will be automatically upgraded, and most botched installations should get fixed by running this patch. Warning: If you have a very old BepInEx folder remove it when prompted!
  • Most mods are in plugin and sideloader form to avoid modifying game files. You can run HF Patch again to remove them.
  • Please leave the modders some positive feedback or help them in some other way!
  • There is no warranty on this patch or on any of the included mods. You are installing this patch at your own risk.
