Yin-Yang – X-Change Alternative

Yin-Yang - X-Change Alternative

Kaoru Sakurazuka is a normal Japanese young man, not unique in the least except for his oddly feminine facial features, which drive him crazy. His name doesn’t thrill him either — Kaoru is a common name for both girls and boys. He tries to make up for looking like a girl by wearing an extra coating of male bravado wherever he goes. He enjoys his time at school with his friends Touya and Renji.

Lately, Kaoru has been feeling under the weather, and getting dizzy spells. He goes to the school nurse — who’s also famous for inventing new concoctions in the name of science — and accidentally drinks a vial marked “experimental medicine.” Bad move, Kaoru-kun! The next day, Kaoru is shocked to wake up to find that he’s been transformed into a girl! While he desperately tries to find a way to return to normal, he’s forced to spend his days in his new female body.

Kaoru is surprised at the changes in his environment now that he’s a girl. Everywhere he goes, he’s the center of attention, and it seems that everyone is taking an interest in him now. What’s more, Kaoru’s body has an amazing secret that he has yet to discover. What strange adventures are in store for Kaoru in his new body?

  1. I played a bit of it years ago.

    The concept is interesting, as there aren’t many transgender/gender bending games available in English…
    The execution fails IMO. This is a nukige so obviously there’s going to be a lot of sex. It IS the better X-Change installment but ultimately I was disappointed. Just because it is a nukige it doesn’t mean that it should be half assed. I don’t like what happens to the MC, there are unnecessary scenes (which I won’t spoil for you). The plot is also lame as fuck with no substance. Wish the themes had been explored in a different way.

  2. Easily the best on the X-Change Games I’ve played, it not only has great H-Scene’s but most of the games dialog focus is on how the MC deals with his change and the mental changes that happen as a result of his/her relationships. Great story telling.

  3. Always loved this game, played it multiple times. Just wish there was a Mizuki ending where you stay as a girl and she either keeps her member or she turns back and they end with a lesbian relationship.

    Yuki is a high school student. One day, his mind and his female friend’s mind suddenly exchange because of a strange machine invented by his friend. Yuki is totally confused with a female body…. On the other hand, he enjoys erotic things only women can experience…. Like this, his school life as a girl begins….

  6. I tried too change the read only properties but it keeps changing back.. is it because I used Windows 8 64 bit?

  7. Thanks SunkenFleet,
    that fix you had helped me, i didnt think any games would’nt work with multi-core cpus.

  8. please help me . . . =( Ever when I close the game or i get Back to the Menue my saveing get reset >[]< what should I do?? Please answer =.(

  9. dear admin, do U have this one on stock?

    X-Change Alternative 2: Kimi no Hitomi ni Utsurukimi, developed and published by Crowd, which was released in Japan in 2008.

    I know U’re already got your hands full with other projects but whenever U have or planning to get this one for us please give us a notice.

    1. yeah, I’d be so thankful if “X-Change Alternative 2: Kimi no Hitomi ni Utsurukimi” will be uploaded to this site.
      but recently i searched on the other site, still none of them got the ENG version.
      well, hope that some team will volunteer to make the ENG ver. X)

      but still,
      deep thanks for the hard work for all the gend-bend project 😀

  10. I’m on a mac and I’m having trouble getting DAEMON to work (either the lite for mac version or trying to run it through Wine – windows emulator). Is there any other way to set up the game? I downloaded it as one .rar file

  11. excuse me, can anyone tell me, how to join all file? i mean i download this file part 1-9, but i don’t have any idea how to join this game, so i ask for help to how to join this file, thanks a lot.

    1. I’ve downloaded it by parts and just unrar it with winrar from the part1, don’t have to join all the files and it works perfectly.
      I liked kaoru the most in this one

  12. This game crash like crazy for anyone else? I’ve downloaded many games from this site, have my system set to japanese locale and generally have no problems at all running VNs (or a quick google clears up problems). But this one seems to crash after a random amount of time playing it, and then crash again immediately if I try to play it again.

    Mostly just a window pops up (I’m in win 7 64bit btw) that says xca.exe has stopped working and it crashes, sometimes it says C++ Runtime Error – an abnormal shutdown has occurred (or something I’m writing from memory) and it crashes. Once I was able to play for a couple hours but it always crashes eventually and after crash, crashes very quickly afterward, resetting my computer seems to make it take longer to crash again.

    So basically it’s unplayable for me without frequent resets / save scumming. Anyone else had this problem (and fixed it maybe)?

    1. I figured it out in case anyone else is having problems – it’s because of multicore processing, I just went into the task manager, went to the process, and disabled all but one of the cores (under “Set affinity”) and the crashing stopped.

    2. please can you help me?? =( My game never wants to save . . . well it saves but ever when I quit to the Main menue or I close the game this saveings get lost >~< please help me =.(

      1. how about this:
        1. Rightclick the folder where the game is in
        2. Click on properties
        3. deactivate read-only
        4. klick OK
        5. start game
        6. enjoy

      2. oh i forgot… in additional to above start the game everytime as admin… so it ill get all the permissions needed to save

          1. i found out how to fix the save problem…

            go there: C:\Users\(USER)\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Program Files (x86)\Yin-Yang
            and deactivate read-only for the folder “xca”

  13. Anyone played the original able to confirm the number of cg in this game and the length of all of the sex scenes? This is the first eroge in English I have played in a very long time (because I can’t find the Japanese version right now), and all the eroge I can remember playing (dozens) have had at least 2 cg for every sex scene, most have 3-4 cg. Only a few scenes in this have more than one cg. Most typically have foreplay/sex/cumshot (or squirts for yuri scenes) cg’s for every scene. The 4th will be either an after-shot or it’ll be a variant of the cumshot in eroge that give you the option of ejaculating inside or outside. Also, some of the sex scenes seen cut off abruptly.

    Either Crowd (the original maker) was lazy with their cg work, or the English licensee did not get access to all of the game cg.

    While much of the time the translation in this is fairly accurate, there are sometimes where the written English dialog is 100% different than what is actually said. One thing good at least is that the English translation in this keeps honorifics intact. The reversed to western name orders is annoying though.

    Also, noticed that the script translation was done in this without listening to the dialog. Sakuya’s sword school is Kannagi, not Kaminagi. The Kanji is the same, but the pronunciation is different. There are multiple ways of reading each Kanji, so without listening to the dialog, mistakes (especially on names) are easy to make.

  14. lolz I’ve dreamt for this eroge O.O got to download it asap, uhh only 1 download at a time >.<
    @alex, my past experience for this kind of game, sometimes the choices which didnt worked before, it works with only slight difference on previous choice, so dont just take the choice once.

    1. after played it for a while and got several endings, I understand why I have a dream for this VN not the other X-Change series..

      I got a best friend.. no my soulmate closest to me with the exactly same Yin-Yang syndrome but in Touya personality,
      does anybody knows Shoumei sensei’s place or number please? I’d like to ask for a potion for him

      uhh can’t patiently wait for yin-yang 2

  15. I tried to use the thing from the website here to copy it into files but it keeps saying there is nothing in the :U

  16. I don’t know if its just me but Downloadani.me cant go faster then 15-20kb/s. I’ve tried multiple files at different times and other download sites have 250-300 speed.

    If anyone is considering purchasing a premium account with them id urge you not to. I cant even get in contact with them to ask for a refund as the webmaster made a mistake in code on the contact us page.

  17. My game froze in Touya route @_@ have done few other route but Touya route made the game freeze up at some point… x_x any one know why? and how to make it work…

  18. I really have to wonder was this game toned down for its english version or something? Pretty much all the H-scene show a distinct lack of jizz despite that they reference large amounts being produced (like the run in with kaorus nemesis and his goons) The only place you see any is in the student council orgy CG. It’s still a pretty decent game I just found this to be kinda odd lol

  19. I enjoy X-Change games cautiously. There are quite some scenes I really can’t enjoy (like sex orgy and rape scenes..) but some paths are really well made e. g. Touyas route here or in X-Change 3 the scientist girl (forgot her name).

    But sometimes.. you might really think japanese believe that you won’t become pregnant if they do not ejaculate inside, that’s stated in quite a few games. Well maybe they just use that for their novels because it’s easier to deal with contraception.

  20. Student council path is out there but it is one of the best gender change out of game/manga/anime that deals with a man being a woman.

  21. One of the best game i ever played… but the student council path is kinda “mind-fucked” in lots of aspect

  22. excuse me.. it says..
    All sharing functionality on FileSonic is now disabled. Our service can only be used to upload and retrieve files that you have uploaded personally.

    If this file belongs to you, please login to download it directly from your file manager.

    then how ?? 🙁

  23. the second link will not download.

    “You can not access this page directly. Please use the website to start your download or contact us in case of problem.

    If the problem persists, clear your cookies and try again.”

    could you post an alternate, or could someone give me the 2nd rar file. please <3

    oddly enough the other links seem to be fine so far

      1. Please help me =.( I can´t save my Progress =( Ever when i get to the Menue or I leave the game I lose all my progress What should I do? °~° Please help me I want to play this game right >~<

  24. a very great game. love voice acting for kaoru chan. just can’t wait to play xchange alternative 2. but i’ve heard it’s not as funny as the first.

    1. believe me… of course he will X3… though right now for the second demonbane to be post here and for thief and sword to finish patching up

  25. Is this the best way to get games like this? Cause file sonic is slower than me trying to well um “Do what this game is supposed to help me do best”. Are there any faster download sites? And does anyone know the link to such site? Please and will be greatly appreciated.

  26. admin please try not to use fileserve if there are many parts because it takes forever to finish downloading all parts as we will have to wait a long time before being able to download the next one

  27. Awesome read, too bad I found it so late. All links are still working guys, just persevere lol. It’s been 3 years already, where’s part 2? And why don’t I see Kaoru in it…:( Surprisingly decent storyline, please try it if you haven’t already. And yes, like someone said before, the voice actress for Kaoru Sakurazuka is awesome.

    1. I’m glad they didnt use kaoru again i played the original x-changes and didnt like how you saw the same characters over and over. Plus have you seen the art for num 2?

      1. I also would like to know where this survey program is. I am not really sure how to install this.

  28. looks like everyone having problems downloading and installing any of the x-change games. since there are like over 4 parts for each game does that mean i need to download the daemon tool and mount it when i’m trying to install it or is it just a downloaded content error because i’m having problems installing any of the x-change games i downloaded?

  29. theres no survey, it just takes you to a site where you download stuff… and it wont complete even if you do download the stuff. also hotfile links are down

  30. btw its not labeled rape because its not a huge factor in this game… anyway onto my rating


    The game provides good background story for the main character and is told very well from Kaoru’s perspective. My main complaint is that several characters dont have much depth. A plus side is that you can choose both guys and girls, so if your favorite girl is kaoru your in luck.
    The art is good, thought each scene only uses 1 cg for each event, meaning if it says they were kissing, fingering, etc, you wont actually see it in many cases.
    Love the voice actor for kaoru, its a very fitting girly tomboy voice. the other voice actors are great too. not many sfx in this game btw.
    Great ero scenes in this game, kinky and varied situations both physically and mentally.

  31. This should be labeled as rape, the first decision you get to make BOTH options you get raped! not that i mind but just a heads up

  32. i would like to know if this content i’m downloading is a game and if it is in english.

    Whith compliments
    Kiba Ynuzuka

    ps: I’m using my cousins email so if you can send me the response to the email i’d be greatfull.

  33. Do i have to burn it or mount it? cause I never really know how to mount/the proses. Have any detail guide or video guide?

  34. Is there a way to download not via hotfile ? I tried to do the survey and download directly from the server but they always say you have alr did it and error ? Please tell me

    1. yes, everything is in english.
      I’m planning to add partial translations as separate section, but for now i have a really long backlog of things i have to fix with current uploads ( many have complicated setups – i want to simplify this by uploading pre-cracked versions, also i’d like to add walktroughs and HCG sets for all current releases, before moving on to adding new stuff…)
