  1. Todokanai Translations Presents White Album 2 https://vndb.org/v2920 & https://vndb.org/v7771 Description Howdy The upcoming patch will include translations for the entirety of White Album 2. That includes Introductory Chapter, Closing Chapter & Coda. Beyond that, the patch will also revise the contents of the questionable partial patch we released before, including retranslations of whole parts that were beyond saving. Further beyond that, our lovely programmers have managed to fiddle around with the script to include 14 new PS3 exclusive CGs

  2. Good morning good people of Fuwa! As the person that is keeping the main site slightly less dead than it could've been, I decided I could use a space to post about new content without making new threads every time. Here I (or possibly other authors) will post updates whenever something goes up on Fuwa's frontpage – feel free to comment & discuss. This weekend I published a review of ebi hime's The Mermaid of Zennor, a very interesting and very angsty psychological drama VN. Consider checking it out and leaving your impressions here or in the comments under the article!

  5. Currently enjoying Kinkoi, but the following dialogue went completely over my head. Does anyone have any idea what it's a reference to? In any case, it's one of the better VNs I've read lately, although there's a weird (and somewhat creepy) bug that causes face sprites to show up separated from the heads, but it doesn't happen too often. Here's an example: (I might've added some additional text. *cough*)

  6. Oh god I think I'm gonna become hella spoiled by Yuzusoft I forgot that they actually put in the effort to change character sprites to go in tandem with what whatever the characters are currently saying. Bless whoever they hired that has enough OCD to take the time to do all of that. It actually makes me want to listen to the entire dialogue rather than doing my whole min/maxing sweetspot reading because it really does amplify the reading experience significantly. ~~ Anyways I ended up going for Riddle Joker, cuz I need me some high school superpowers Friggen' Himawari, b

    What are you playing?

    I recently read 'Kotonoha Amrilato'. The premise is as simple as it is intriguing: Rin, a regular japanese high-schooler, suddenly finds herself in a bizarre version of her own world after buying taiyaki at a stall on the street. This world is, for the most part, almost identical to her world, but a couple of remarkable aspects stand out: the sky appears to have a pink hue no matter the time of the day (yes, even at night), and all the signs and posters on the street are written in a weird language, whose writing system sort of resembles the roman alphabet albeit with noticeab

  8. Hi all. I had a lot going on, and before I knew it, a year had gone by. I knew there would be stretches where I couldn't get much translating done, but I never meant to leave the project without updates for so long. I'm setting a short-term goal of reaching the halfway point of Maiya's route by the end of September. Some people asked about a partial patch download. Here are three files you can copy to your already existing Saimin Yuugi install if you want to test it: https://mega.nz/file/pIpSjL7K#ygSQKnwnNVdE_FQ0s_Rr4sR7e9Wjcl-VT_DjLpQI7gA (催眠遊戯.exe - UI translation) https

  10. So, after a long break with VNs I'm finally back. I'm currently reading Gahkthun of the Golden Lightning, and I'm loving it so far! Right now I've finished 3 chapters, and I'll try to write a more extensive reaction after I finish the whole VN.

Wait I think I’m missing one… Oh, right! I guess this is a good place to start for today. Dracu Riot, huh.

There IS a reason for it, however, and we can finally talk about it now! The truth is… Dracu Riot is getting a full HD Remaster and re-release in J

  15. Fatal Twelve. It popped up randomly in the Switch store the other day, jeez y'all gotta market better! Fatal Twelve is a, uh... battle of wits style battle royale death game? Except there's no hard violence- no epic Fate/Stay battles to the death. At the other end of the spectrum, there's no glorified verbal debates like Danganronpa's Class Trials. That's probably my biggest first impression disappointment going into this VN lol. The basic premise is that 12 people died, and through an enigmatic process called Divine Selection they are put through a 12 week altered r

  16. So, I finally finished reading the fifth chapter of Higurashi (aka Meakashi) and man, does it feel amazing to read it for the first time! The previous ones were all rereads so I kinda knew what to expect (although I didn't remember a lot) but this one, even tho it's related to the Watanagashi chapter, it had a completely different feeling~ My comments (spoilers, obviously) So far, this is my rank: #1 Tatarigoroshi #2 Watanagashi #3 Onikakushi #4 Meakashi #5 Himatsubushi Anyways, I'll give this one a 7,8/10! Next will be Tsumihoroboshi (chapter 6)! I can't wait to be wi

    SLGSystemScriptTool

    After some time tampering with SLG System engine, I did create a tool to work with it's scripts. And not just simple string editor, no. SLGScriptTool is dual languaged GUI tool for (de)compiling and (de/en)crypting (with key finding) scripts of SLG System engine. Supports all known versions of SLG System: 0, 1, 2, 3 (3.0, 3.1), 4 (4.0, 4.1), but may lack of support of some it's variations. With this tool you can: decompile and compile script of SLG System, (en/de)crypt script of any game on SLG System, find key of any game on SLG System via cryptoattack. Link for the tool: https://gi

  20. Imho, H-scenes which are there for 'story reasons' are the worst. It essentially means their only purpose is for shock factor to illustrate brutal rape or abuse. Which in the end is just a bad excuse to appeal to fans of hardcore fetish sex. There are much better ways to convey love or drama than H-scenes, which makes them almost by definition optional and just for eye candy.

  23. This whole situation feels bizarre. On one hand, I know that you mean well and want to have more representation in VNs or whatever, but on the other hand, you've stated that this has caused you to spiral into depression. Plus, you've stated that you're not even black. As someone who is half-black, I'm gonna be a bit blunt. If there were more VNs with diversity, it would make me a bit happier but it wouldn't change as many things as you'd think. Especially with how niche VNs are in general, this idea would probably work significantly better if you were talking about making a film or someth

Access to the original version of the products you are asked to translate. 0.9 cents per character, wonderful offer innit? Actually worse than sol press. Well maybe they actually pay > Required skills/experience ・ English: native with excellent writing and proofreading skills ・ Japanese: fluent (preferably JLPT N1 or equivalent) ・ Photoshop nice standards, but who would actually do the work for you at this skill level?

  26. Aaand I feel jipped again LOL I finished Himawari. Asuka's route for me was like An anthill Compared to the Mount Everest that was Aqua. See, there's this enforced playorder thing So the writers know that you know all about the plot shenanigans that Episode One and Two foreshadowed, with Aqua's route being the route of choice to conclude them, so there's no need to regurgitate all that jazz again. So what does that leave for Asuka? Absolutely NOTHING! It's like they ran out of gas. Here I thought there would be one last curveball, an Episode Three, a

  28. Himawari really is a VN that can only be appreciated as a whole, not by the sum of its parts. For some reason it really took me some time (Had to finish both Ep 1 + 2; a week) to get into the "honeymoon" VN reading phase where I spend my days itching to get home so I can read some more. Episode One was (enjoyment factor) a 5/10, a SoL sloggy grind with one of the most meh poster heroines ever via FUKO ISOGAIII Aries, with Ginga's discount S;G Okabe personality running the show not really helping either. Episode Two was a 6/10, intriguing, liked the setting/narrative change, but overall ex

  29. @Asuka I don't play too many gameplay/rpg VNs, last one I played was like Yumina the Ethereal years ago which had some dungeon crawling bits that I loathed (I just hate dungeon crawlers in general and can't fathom how people find them enjoyable). I guess if you just want the story try looking for a super easy/story mode setting, if not then go look for handholding walkthrough, and lastly screw everything or ggez just gitgud @Vernon hehe, the best thing about Kyou route is how many times you get to hear her classic frustrated "AHH mou!!!" ~~ Finished Episode Two of Himawari ...

    Hey, I'm really happy to hear you liked Digital Seclusion and that it led you here. This forum isn't as active as it used to be, but it's far from dead and still a really good place to discuss VNs!

    Good job, very cool, write a disassembler isn't a simple job. While is cool a disasm tool, If don't have other tools to this engine, I recommend you write a simple string editor as well, because in long-term will be more stable, a disasm can break when the engine update with new opcodes after all. Just a hint, anyway, good job man, really.

    What are you playing?

    Yesterday I finished Konneko. It took me 62 hours, but they got stretched over almost 4 months I played all-ages PS2 version. As for the premise - you play as Yuu Katase, who lost his parents when being few years old. Currently he lives with Kawahara sisters - his two cousins - Touka, who is about the same age as him, and her older sister Mizuha, who works as a teacher at the school they both attend, and acts as the head of the family, since the sisters are also orphans. Touka suffers from some misterious condition, which makes her memory "reset" from time to time. This "curse"

  39. This came so out of the blue, I'm equal parts confused and overjoyed. Honestly, although I understand that they want to build some hype for it beforehand, it would've been pretty awesome if they'd held out until the release date and made it the shadow drop to end all shadow drops.

  40. Are you that desperate so much that you decided to write some unproven statement that having role model in VN would increase the economy of a country? I afraid that this time I must be blunt by saying that you didn't do this for the sake of African American like you always said, but it's merely for the sake of yourself who always order us to help you in any way to fulfill your own wish that even not reasonable seeing that you're just Asian instead of African American like many of us think (Also even if you're African American your campaign would still raise some question).

    +1 for Akio and Sanae being one of the ultimate best VN parents I think I'll finally give Clannad anime a go - rereading whole VN would take up too much time, but it might be nice way to re-live the story in a different way.

Also, big applause to Nekonyan, for keeping the bad Sprite layering and other bugs from the original JP version. Keeping honorifics to preserve the original experience? - I sleep Keep the wrong face layer for the wrong sprite pose? - Yes please
