  1. [if exp="mp.file != '' && Storages.isExistentStorage(&f.FILE)"] [ eval exp="f.音声再生 = true"] [ hact exp="&createHistoryActionExp(global.CHARA1_BUF, mp.file)" cond="mp.id=='【幸枝】' || mp.id=='【??】' || mp.id=='【幸枝&静香】'"] [ hact exp="&createHistoryActionExp(global.CHARA2_BUF, mp.file)" cond="mp.id=='【静香】' || mp.id=='【?】' || mp.id=='【静香&幸枝】'"] [ playse buf=&global.CHARA1_BUF loop=false storage=&mp.file cond="(mp.id=='【幸枝】' || mp.id=='【??】' || mp.id=='【幸枝&静香】') && kag.skipMode==0"] [ playse buf=&global.CHARA2_BUF loop=false storage=&mp.file cond="(mp.id=='【静香】' || mp.id=='【?】' || mp.id=='【静香&幸枝】') && kag.skipMode==0"] [endif] (starting at line 171, SysMacro.ks) I think the problem here is you haven't changed the nametags in these lines to match the changed nametag in the script. The 2 last lines before the endif seem to be playing sound, but they only do so if their condition cond="(mp.id=='【幸枝】' || mp.id=='【??】' || mp.id=='【幸枝&静香】') && kag.skipMode==0" is fulfilled. You probably need to change all the nametags in this. EDIT: [before these lines] There's a fair few other lines playing sounds that use the same condition to check the speaker tag (probably to separate the sound channels between the 2 sisters as is done in this snippet as well?) so to get everything working as it should you have some replacing work to do. Or you could get clever and do some replacement for nametag display only somehow, I guess
  2. do you know in which file the 名前 macro is defined? I could just search but I hate having to open so many files in notepad++ edit: nvm it's in gamesystem/sysmacro.ks
  3. folder can't be accessed, gives me an error what engine does this vn use?

  5. Hi!

    I thought the VN reference I was referring to was obvious so I just left it like that. As for actual thoughts: It's a weird mix of being schlocky and sort-of-embracing it and being full serious in the sequence where the viewpoint character is transported and given all that delicious knowledge. I don't entirely dislike it but there is some whiplash between the two modes. There is some buildup of horror tension, but like many short duration horror stories it kind of feels a bit overly accelerated. I guess it could have been much worse though. Like basically all EVNs that aren't Actual Sunlight the prose could be edited to read better. Including, but certainly not limited to, basic errors like an uncapitalized "i" in a section that didn't seem like it should be fucked up textually. The listing of edgy verbs and nouns in one part feels a bit juvenile and honestly badly done; it doesn't really confer anything scary it just looks like someone tried writing down all the edgy words they could think of in no particular order. I guess you can argue that was on purpose as an issue with the viewpoint character's mindset but it was still unengaging. I would probably want to revamp this section with a few less gorey and more cosmic scares mixed in and the structure changed to be a bit more than just one unconnected word after the other. It doesn't remind me of Saya or anything else much; maybe other cosmic horror stories for the part where the viewpoint character is transported to the entity. Well, the start reminds me of more than one equally schlocky horror thing, I guess, lol.
  6. Hi!

    Okay that was pretty entertaining I'm not sure how I feel about spoiling [well known visual novel] just for a joke, though I guess a lot of people including me will have played it lol You certainly have a unique style if nothing else lol
  7. Hi!

    After loading a save it worked this time? the hell Edit: I can reproduce the bug(?) easily by starting from the beginning. The transition only works if I load a save, which also makes a background image white where it would show a picture otherwise Edit 2: the save has to be close to the crash point to stop the bug from occurring as well. Edit 3: whoa these are some naughty hung processes
  8. Hi!

    Okay so what happens for me is, the black screen at ~15:50 in the video never ends; it doesn't proceed to the next image, the settings cogwheel does nothing when clicked either. I guess the VN just hangs for me then? lol tyranobuilder
  9. Hi!

    Oh yeah, the second one. The first one does end. The second one just has a black screen with ominous noises for at least minutes as its ending, which I was in two minds about
  10. Hi!

    ዐዘ ጌዐፕዘቿዪ, ጎፕ'ነ ዘልየየቿክጎክኗ ልኗል – ahh that's better. I basically was saying the non-ending ending is a bit meh. Assuming you're not just supposed to wait way too long or I'm getting a bug. It wouldn't need to have like, anything special to end it after a certain time showing the black screen, you could just show some glitchy picture, play a sound, then make the program exit or whatever.

  12. Hi!

    🤔 I mean if this were a horror part I'd understand, but it sort of just looks bad here (the grammar nazi in me wants to add that the hyphen after occasion should be an en dash (a bit wider) or a nonspaced em dash)
  13. Hi!

    Man, is there any way to download this stuff instead of playing it in the browser? The fullscreen button doesn't work, I have to completely disable ublock and noscript for the tab to get it to load, clicking new game takes ages to actually load the game with no feedback making you think it's just not working, and well html5 vns are not my fave
  14. Hi!

    you know unlike most dev intros I actually enjoyed this one, it's weird how it doesn't link to anything though
  15. Tsunderes or Kuuderes Recommendations

    This is very much a modern tsundere, but you might like them anyway: https://vndb.org/v925 https://vndb.org/v938 You haven't tried these and that seems odd for you, I don't think they have kuuderes or tsunderes but ill just rec them anyway: https://vndb.org/v167/ https://vndb.org/v8489
