Long time ago, Efraim Siounis created a Patch that let you to play as Curly Brace in the Original Cave Story (Quote taking her place).
But the patch have some problems, like some few incorrect text and some few graphics glitches, and Quote's Face Box, an edit of Curly's Face Box, while a good job, it's still looked like Curly.

And after that time Efraim didn't update the patch, and the site looks that is sleeping.

So i made an edit, and "unofficial update" for myself, but some time latter i decided to share it as a mutual CS and Pixel Fan just to share the enjoyment.

REMEMBER, Efreim is the one that deserves the credits for the creation of the patch (he said in the readme that we could share it as we like), my intention is not to steel it.
I just take a very small credit for the update. (The "unofficial update" as i call it)

If is there any problem or question, post on this thread-

Hope that you like it :)

There was a small problem I remember from using Efraim's version that still might be present, when you drown your sprite changes to Quote.

Small Update:

Version 1.31u
- 21/01/2009-
*Fixed some minor sprites details
(Just fixed some Curly and Quote sprites that Efraim edited, used when Quote lost his memory and in both Good and Best/Extra ending.
And also fixed some very minor corruption caused by my Hex Editor in some graphics, but probably you didn't noticed that. ;P
If you have downloaded 1.3u and if you don't mind this minor problems, it's not urgent to re-download it.)

Now i won't update anymore this thing (except some missing text, but i doubt there is something missing).

This is cool, but I think I prefer the original...
I encountered a "He-She" type mistake somewhere, but it might be fixed by now.

Well the only thing is different is Quote's Facepic and some missing mistakes.
The most you could say is "I prefer other Quote's Facepic" because they aren't that different (aside mistakes and corrections) :D

And looks like Efraim Site is waking up again (i think), well if he update the patch himself or ask me to remove this, that is what i will do, because there's no reason for this that way.

Uh... you can't save Quote. There is a distinct lack of a tow rope.

Don't. Bump. Dead. Threads.
and I'm pretty sure you can, all that was edited was the dialog and pics.

O.o

Only some little text and sprites were changed, i'm 99% sure that no other code was erased or modified (The patch is not mine, i only finished it, so i can't give you the 100%.).
But I tested it several times.

If isn't obvious by now:
>The conditions to save Quote are the same to save Curly in the original version.<
Here's your answer.

And for me there is nothing wrong about bumping it, unless only for pure spamming.

Hello. I've been trying this patch and it seems to be working just fine, thank you so much for making it.
I think I've stumbled over a little mistake in a dialogue where Curly's addressed as a male. I dunno if this patch is still updated, but I thought I could post it just in case.
It happens when you've saved Kazuma.

It got bumped, again. I did the same thing to a thread a couple months back though, so I can'tsay much about you here.

Threadwise, this looks like a cool patch. I don't usually like to start over on my save files, so instead I'll look for minor mods that have the same storyline so I can have a different weapon. I have a file with the Machinegun and one with the Spur, and now I'm going to have one with the Snake. :o

I made a mistake, I Re-uploaded it now with the correct file.
The Kazuma problem is now fixed.... probably... (But nothing from another world, you should have fixed yourselves :p)

Upon request, I decided to add an alternative face.pbm file which was first seen here.

It is now available to download. NOTE: Link will be available in the video description in the near future. Be sure to copy this to the data file in the cave story directory.

Thank you for your work.
It's one more choice who doesn't like the existing options.

In the future i might do a patch based on the mode from wiiware.
But not now, only a good time after the last release (Japanese version perhaps), i don't want to disturb the sales of any kind of way.
