  1. The creation and release of Katawa Shoujo is still I think one of the proudest moments of the Western VN scene so I think it deserves a topic celebrating it's 10th anniversary. I also know that a lot of people who eventually became active on here got their start with Katawa Shoujo (I could be wrong, but I believe our esteemed Admin @Tay even falls into this category). In any case, it's definitely among my favorite VNs and I'd love to hear everyone's thoughts and memories of it. On that note, years ago @Palas made an excellent post about it and I'd like to share that here: Katawa Shoujo Analysi

  2. Introduction I wanted to make this guide since i couldn't find some complete guide to mod any VN on yuris engine. The main reason is that i played euphoria and i wanted to mod it. All the examples you are going to find are my years of reverse engineering and online documentation on euphoria (Mangagamer) version of yuris (v474). How Yu-Ris engine works Yuris is an interpreter that uses code C-like, is often used with ERIS, which is the VN interactive engine part of the interpreter. The engine use its own file format called "YPF" for archives and "YBN" for scripts. The cont

  4. What I mean is that I usually read vn's and whenever we get to the girls showing affection for the guy or him seeing their boobs he gets immediately shy. I've gotten annoyed at those protagonists because to me they are way too shy. I also hate the tropes where the protagonist accidentally walks into the girls room as she is changing and gets slaped for it. I'm basically looking for a vn with a protagonist that Is in love with someone and isn't afraid to confess or to talk to her. He doesn't just wait for an opportunity to happen to him he goes out and seizes it for himself. I'm also looking

  5. As for Katawa Shoujo, I remember that my roommate play this at around 2009 in that back then it's just a trial version of it. Obviously back then I didn't expect that there'll be full version, only to have 4chan manage to release the full version of it at January 4th of 2012 (I remember the date because that date was happen to be one of the important date for my family). Well Katawa Shoujo here is definitely not my starter VN (The title goes to Shuffle and Kira Kira), although I won't deny the fact that it's the first VN for a lot of people though along with one of the most popular VN on VNDB

  6. Didn't realize there was so much discussion here, so I thought I would come here to clarify things. The TLC for Eustia is 100% done. I would know since I completed it! The reason why the spreadsheet does not match what I'm saying is simple: I don't have editing control of the spreadsheet. As of right now, what's being done is programming and QC, and the TLC progress on the spreadsheet more accurately reflects the programming percentage as opposed to the TLC percentage. Once programming is done, then we'll move onto the final round of QC. From there, Eustia should be co

  10. This is quite an old visual novel. It has a SRPG reboot called Codename: Bakery Girl. This, Girl of the Bakehouse is the original short visual novel. I recommend it to those who like military, tragedy and romance genre. Honestly, I think it is pretty good for a short visual novel. So, hope you pick it up in your free time!

  11. For biggername titles, their translations are good. For shorter and less noteworthy VNs, it's a mixed bag. Nukige and similar suffer from some obvious QC and editing issues, but are nonetheless playable. If you're looking to grab biggername VNs from them, it should be fine. However, for titles not available on Steam, you may have trouble buying them directly through their own site. Some cards just don't work, and you have to go to Offgamers to buy coins (the currency their site uses).

  12. All the positive guys need to understand the other perspective as well. Many many projects have failed as can be seen on this forum. You need to understand that a public announcement like this carries consequences and some responsibility (if you don't wanna get criticized) - people can get mad even if it is a passion project, after all something has been announced and in a way promised. Keep in mind this has been in translation since 2017 and is still not out. OP hadn't posted in the thread for a full year. New people can come in and see that seemingly nothing has been happening recently and a

  15. I've started reading The House in Fata Morgana this week and I'm absolutely LOVING IT Chapter 1 was a wild ride, I loved the pacing of it I'm still not done with chapter 2 but so far it's really good!! Anyways, I should be done with chapter 2 by Sunday so I'll probably mention it in my next post! Next week I want to read both ch. 3 and 4 I now can see why this vn is so well-regarded within the community!

  16. In case you want more, there's Yosuga no Sora (While technically it's still unfinished, actually you can already read it in English for the whole VN), Umikana, Kemomusu, and ATRI. I don't know if you already play those VNs or not, but in case you still didn't play it yet then I hope my recommendations here can be helpful to you.

  17. This is a discussion board. What needs to happen is for you to accept that others have different views and outlook for things. Your constant replies in annoyance is as much of a derailment as anything else as it continues these discussions instead of having them end in one post. Circlejerking and enforced positivity with no place for scrutiny has no place anywhere. You're free to disagree as this is a discussion board We've seen similar delays and issues before release multiple times before. Astral air, clover day's, Irotoridori no Sekai and probably lots more.

    Random translations #1

    Over time, a bored translator tends to accumulate random pieces of translation they never went that far with, or did in 10 minutes for the shitpost for whatever reason, etc. Apart from that, I’ve personally done some scattered work for fan translations that may or may not ever see the light of day, some (very modestly) paid in ebooks. Anyway, here we go: 1. Random demonbane fight/action scene I think this is from an expanded rerelease or something. There’s an absolutely meme error left in here where my brain read 拳 as 拳銃, even noticing my confusion in the comments but nevertheless failing to

  24. I believe that both sides chose what's the best way to cope in regard of lack of update (Either by been too wary with thinking that the project is dead or by putting too much hope on this and shot down the opposing opinion), although obviously it would lead to some unhealthy debate because both sides has some reasonable excuse (To a degree) to think what they believe. In the end, it should be obvious that it's the best to be in the middle like I say earlier (ie wait and see until the release).

    Is shiravune good?

    I'm reading things in Japanese for many years now and I've to say that when I really care for what I'm reading I'll 100% chose to read the JP version even if I've the English or French version at disposition. I was kinda surprised to act like this at first, but that's how big a quality difference there is to me, even with reputed good translators. Well, I'm arriving to my point : although I eventually switched back to JP version, I've read a bit of Primal Hearts 2 in English and I felt that at least the beginning was quite well translated.

  31. You might get this error message because you are trying to repack the file in a folder that use SHIFT-JIS standard name, i suggest you to repack the folder in the desktop and without using a locale emulator (if you are using one). I've been able to repack the file, but the game refuse to work because the key of the compression is different. The game you are trying to repack uses a custom version of the engine (i think), which should be 500 (even if the exe says it's 555, idk). Because i'm not a programmer, i can't say that well how the repacking works for those versions and the official SDK fo

  35. I know, you can use VNDB for that but what I am actually asking, are there games where characters not just say "it's eroge or something" but acknowledge the existence of readers, speak to them like they do to each other. It's ok if it's japanese, I'm use to VNR. And it would be great if it's nukige. Yeah, I can't believe myself how rotten I've become... Thank you in advance!

    2021 in review

    Sorry to hear about the health concerns you had earlier in the year. Still appreciate the help you gave me btw. For something designed to be niche, I'm reasonably proud of the (final) build I currently have of Digital Seclusion and your help improved it a lot from the first public version. Often I'm hesitant to ask for help. Not because I don't think I need it, but because I'm paranoid that nobody is willing to help me. So even though you were rather harsh at first, it touched me that you were willing to edit for me.

  39. Hey man, glad someone's being transparent here, but correct me if i'm wrong, i think what shaun trying to imply here is acting negatively towards a passion project like that could have an effect on the project it self, remember that people work on this with no money in mind, that means they're driven solely by passion and to put pressure and being negative like that could turn that passion into stress, making them question themselves "Why are we still here?.. Just to suffer" and starts asking for cash like you said (because their passion is gone and need to be replaced by money) But this

Well who knows in regard of Comyu there, although if anything else at least one should have easier time to understand Hello Lady if the problem in Comyu is indeed because of Ixrec because Hello Lady here has different translator, and yes Hello Lady will be released by Nekonyan at January later if all goes well.

  46. Some people may have seen the relatively low-quality anime for Arifureta Shokugyou de Sekai Saikyou and are probably wondering why I am bothering to spout about this. Lately I've been plowing through LNs and web novels because I ran out of interesting VNs, but this is the first one I feel a need to expound on at length. Let's be clear, I am one of the freaks who enjoyed the anime, though I did so while wincing constantly at the animators' choices and the horrible monster CGs. To me, Hajime's story just stood out as being that good, despite the crippling weakness of having used up half the s

  47. I love the Arifureta web novel too; nice to see someone talk about it on Fuwanovel. I'm not caught up on all the after stories, though. For those who shy away from pure novels, the Arifureta manga is also a very solid adaptation, popular on sites like MangaDex. https://mangadex.org/title/248525ed-ad1c-4ddc-a834-5d6ce66a3ad2/arifureta-shokugyou-de-sekai-saikyou Also, those who want to read this novel in English should make sure to read the official J-Novel translation, which are really good and reads so much better than the mediocre half-MTL'ed fan translations. https://j-novel.club/read/a
