  2. Cocoro@Function, any news?

    Basic rule of thumb here. If a TL project is inactive for more than a year, and with no frequent updates to keep users posted about it, then it is most likely dead. The chances of such a project picking itself back up after that long stretch of time is very rare, and very unlikely to happen now that Pulltop has dibs on any planned localizations for its titles.
  3. Cocoro@Function, any news?

    The translation is likely dead and since MoeNovel is translating Pulltop titles, odds are that nobody else will pick it up. For all I know, MoeNovel made Gokurousama quit.
  4. Inquiry for Dog Owners

    Better for your dog to experience a bit of a shock rather than a passerby getting bit.

  6. Inquiry for Dog Owners

    I think it would be bad to give your dog a shock. Imagine if it's you who would have to learn that you get electric shocks whenever you approach some area and the only way to figure out where is by trial and error. I'm also not fully convinced it can't get a false positive, which would be horrible for your dog. For all I know, turning on your vacuum cleaner could make an electric field, which could trigger the shock collar. While it's not the cheapest solution, a proper fence is the best solution. It would be good to avoid contact between your dog and wildlife. Depending on where you live, you may or may not have hedgehogs wandering around your garden, usually, but not always at night. If a dog and a hedgehog meet, then it's bad news for the hedgehog. It will go into defense position and if the dog is hurt, it might attack. Alternatively it might decide to just carry it to somewhere else. Either way the hedgehog can come in contact with dog teeth, get a scratch, which will then turn into an infection, which can kill it in a few weeks. The amount of hedgehog fatalities due to dogs is significant, which is bad considering hedgehogs are endangered and protected animals. Besides hedgehogs are beneficial because they eat a bunch of bugs, which would otherwise cause damage to plants and crops. Ideally you should train your dog to leave hedgehogs alone. However I have yet to meet a dog successfully trained for that. The second best solution is a fence, which prevents hedgehogs from walking into the territory of the dog, hence preventing them from encountering each other. A proper fence also prevents other dogs from suddenly entering your garden to start a fight. It happens once in a while that some dog runs away from home and before it's caught, it enters the property of somebody else and attacks the dog.
  7. Cocoro@Function, any news?

    So I have been wondering lately because it was 4 years ago that Gokurousama the translation team was going to translate the VN made by pulltop called "Cocoro@Function" I'm not sure how long translations take, I just want to see if there's any news about it. I really like to play it and I haven't seen any news from them and they're website is down, idk if it's just a problem with me but if you go and check they're website http://gokurousama.wordpress.com/2013/12/02/announcing-the-cocorofunction-fan-translation-project-3/ It says it's down. Is there any news on Cocoro@Function? I am very excited.

  9. Inquiry for Dog Owners

    My parents own a dog, and they keep her in check with just a leash to a secure object. If you can't afford a fence, the leash is the cheapest and harmless option, because I don't like shock collars. They're like a form of animal cruelty, and I don't like seeing pets get hurt.
  10. Inquiry for Dog Owners

    Do you guys have any dogs at home? Have you ever tried to use an underground dog fence? Is this product a great alternative to a traditional wood gate? I have tried to look for It online and I must say that e-fence is way cheaper than wood barrier. The only thing that bothers me is the fact that my beagle needs to wear a shock collar.

    @Ranzo looks like you didn't notice the new rule added last week "Don't post seizure inducing GIFs without a spoiler and a warning labeling it as such". For some reason it has not been widely announced on the forum that the rules changed, but I have seen mods have started to enforce it.
  12. Not enough gay

    Yes! I played True Love not too long ago and I went with Kazuhiko during my first play through just because I liked the novelty of even having that as an option. Oh I just thought of a great ending scene for a Nukige You know how in those harem sex scenes when one girl goes down on another girl? Well what if midway through the scene they decide that something about it feels right, feels natural. Then they ditch the hordog/shiftless/noface mc and just go together. Now how's that for an ending?
  13. Not enough gay

    Jun'ai was released 1995 and you could end up with your best bro, Kazuhiko, no biggie without it being considered a bad end, and with his feelings being genuine. WE NEED MORE THINGS LIKE THIS. HOW CAN AN OLD SCHOOL GALGE MANAGE TO DO THIS AND NOT PERSONA 5. WWWWWWW
  14. Not enough gay

    Still not enough gay Maggie, it needs more gay. But yeah I hate how some people seem to act like that including more gay and lesbian options makes the game or vn worse. I think it would be interesting if in a Visual Novel you could decide to ditch the girls and go with your best mate whose been by your side this whole time, and you know make it an actual ending, and not a joke one. Or just go after him from the start. More options are always a plus even if you aren't into it.
  15. What is considered "finishing" a Visual Novel?

    Huh. Not as much diversity as I thought there'd be. Interesting. But I consider a VN to be finished once I have 100% completion. Even if I think the route or the girl herself is complete garbage, I go through it. Just not satisfied otherwise. Sometimes this even includes fandisks. There have been a few times where I consider a VN finished only to find out that there's a fandisk(or 5), which makes me reclassify it as unfinished. Sequels don't really qualify for this though.
  16. YU-RIS engine

    Trying to extract scenario and script files from 健全!変態生活のススメ. the files are ypf. So yeah need help the game came out this year.
  17. I don't know, honestly... It seems that's the catch with console exclusivity, and it seems like it also has the side-effect of making fan-translations less likely.

  19. What is considered "finishing" a Visual Novel?

    I have to say I'm a bit puzzled by rejecting routes purely based on the level of loliness. To me, how interesting a route is is based on parameters such as story, events, personality and such stuff. Some of them contains a loli, some don't. That in itself is not the deciding factor. If a VN has a loli route, which is junk, it most likely has multiple routes, which are junk because odds are that it's just not a good VN. If all the other routes are worth reading, odds are that the single loli route is also worth reading. The problem is if a loli route is added just to be a loli route and there is nothing else in it. However you can say the same about the route about big boobs. If that is all there is to the route, that one too will be boring to read.
  20. What is considered "finishing" a Visual Novel?

    Agreed. Based on my experiences, the universal opinion around here and in the greater VN community at large [both in the West and in Japan] seems to be that loli routes are inherently worthless garbage that isn't worth anyone's time. Why developers continue to include them is beyond me.

    Cum in, or cum out. Choose wisely.
  22. Fureraba Walkthrough

    is the choices in the walkthrough will give you the highest score possible???
  23. Encoding compatible OGG files

    The bitrate of the PC version is 192 kb/s and the ps2 is just 112 kb/s. Most likely the engine is hardcoded to only work with 192 kb/s.
  24. And what do I do if I really want to read those without having to buy such hardware? It really sucks that such good titles aren't released for windows.
  25. What is considered "finishing" a Visual Novel?

    I too prefer to skip any route containing scat. I just don't find that fetish attractive at all
  26. Nice video. Now I'm starting to get an idea of the setup and it is indeed a nice one for a game. It's still a bit vague on the VN part itself. From what we know so far, it seems to take place in a makeshift fortress, possibly with divine assistance. However it doesn't tell if it's drama, comedy, slice of life or something else or even a combination of those. However I have to say that I'm still not a fan of Lisistrata's voice. It's so high pitch that I'm fairly certain that I will not last through an entire VN if that voice appears all the time. While I would prefer a deeper voice, at least allow the option of disabling voices on a per character level. It goes without saying that all voices should be written as text as well. It's not a problem in a VN, but you have non-VN parts as well. Adding voice only critical information would clash with the ability to disable voices. Also it would be a good idea to ensure the game is playable for deaf people. Deaf players do exist and I have seen one complaining about releasing a voice only game on GOG. They quickly released the text only version as an additional optional download.
  27. Not enough gay

    This is why I love homestuck/hiveswap, there are so many gays, and bi's, and lesbians that don't feel stereotyped, are developed chars and aren't on your face. BUT YES, we need more gay, less stereotyped ones, without being afraid of persons with fragile heterosexuality/masculinity, and without being on your face. We need more things like Chloe and Max from Life is Strange.
