    Was planning to get started on my first VN in Japanese today. I picked KonoSora Flight Diary, because I deemed it fitting since the original was one of my first VNs and still one of my all-time favorites, but it's refusing to cooperate with me. Whenever I try to start the game, it freezes at the Pulltop logo and I have to end the process in the task manager. I've tried changing basically every setting in the launcher that appears before the game boots, but I get the same result every time. Any suggestions? (Yes, the computer is set to Japanese locale.)

    I think I had the same issue with the original game in JP. But I can't remember how I fixed it right now. :wacko:

    Despite making huge profit from Aokana series they decided to abandon eroge industry and their announced games because "the profit didn't meet their expections" and moved to mobile games. After their mobile game failed they came back to Aokana to take easy money away from their fans who they don't give a damn about.

    I would put that mostly on the management and not the IP and creative staff themselves though.

    Sorry for necroing but I don't know where else to go for this question.  So several months ago they locked in the shipping addresses for the Aokana kickstarter and preorder store, but now I need to change my shipping address on account of the fact that... well months have passed and life happens.  Who do I need to reach out to to update my address?

    Poking Kiriya on the NekoNyan discord server might be the quickest way?


  4. Mangagamer releases an VN that interests me, I buy it just as always.

    On the points in that thread.
    Dude can definetely work as a TL in the right circumstances but it was kinda blanket TLd which isn't really optimal, the pressure the translator felt could probably have contributed to forgoing a more nuaced approach.
    Lot's of TL criticisms are rather uninformed imo, when people kick up a fuss about a noun -> noun TL choices and then point to some stilted TL that include all their favorite Japanisms but bungle the JP grammar and context in ways that completely change what's being said at points as "how a good TL is done" it becomes somewhat hard to take them seriously.
    I mean if it wasn't framed as some crusade against the evil "localization" conspiracy so often and people presented their questions in a more open manner it would be fine I guess.

    On the working conditions point, that is concerning but it's extremely hard to judge from the outside though, so I'm just hoping that things resolves in a way that no one gets screwed over.

    On the discord stuff, I just think people are being divas and should calm down and not be so easily offended.

    And on the Fatamoru stuff, outrage outlet saw lots of easy add money to be made and whipped up people who have no idea what they are talking about into an fit.

    To those of you already playing, are there a lot of puns? I saw someone post this on Reddit and thought it was pretty brilliant! If there's more where that came from, I'm looking forward to this more than ever!

    Mashiro does a lot of puns at least. Havent gotten to any other routes so I can't vouch for them.

    question:

    also i wonder when asuka fall in love in mashiro route since she cried when the two of them are dating.
    the same with misaki route when asuka thinks MC abanddon them

    good read

    Somewhere in the common route I'm pretty sure. She just didn't see it coming at all in Mashiro's route.

    Ah, I figured using the punch button several times should result in a punch combo, consecutive kicks in a kick combo, and so on, but I guess it doesn't work like that here then. Gotta admit though that it makes the whole system of allocating attack skills to specific skill slots seem a bit redundant if the game is just automatically gonna shuffle them around without any regard to attack range in the end. Kinda feels like they overcomplicated things for no reason, but I guess it might make more sense later on when I have more attacks at my disposal.

    The way it goes is if you're close range and not holding down the movement buttons but have already used the close range attack it will use the attack that is listed below it in the equipment menu and if that one is also used, the one below that etc.
    It can be rather helpfull once you get used to it since you can't use an attack again until your heat gauge has depleted anyway.

    From what I recall, there was no gore in that scene, just sexual assault (if you can possibly use a word like "just" while talking about a scene like that).
    Actually, I can't remember there being any gore in MLA at all other than in the chomp scene, unless you consider blood spatter to be gore, which I don't.

     

    There's

    Cat 50% off

    I guess?

    I'm done with Saki's, Yayoi's and Keiko's routes and got started on Alice's a couple of hours ago, but I noticed in the guide I'm following that she has two endings; one of which is labeled "True Ending".
    Is this the actual true ending of the VN or is it just referring to the true ending of Alice's route? Maia's route is listed after Alice's in the walkthrough, which makes me a bit uncertain, since true routes tend to come last.

    Save Alice's true ending for last I'd say. Maia's isn't a full route so maybe that's why the guide put her last. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    What I don't get in Misaki's route is

    why Saki didn't use Bird Cage against her, even if it were the basic version. In Asuka's route she used it in all matches, no matter how good the other players were, so it's not like she underestimated Misaki. She simply ditched her  best strategy and the whole point of creating a new FC in order to have a basic match without really trying to win. When she found out Misaki could fly backwards, she should have taken advantage of Bird Cage.

     

    Spoiler

    Misaki learned the bird cage and then both Misaki and Saki used it, which resulted in that stalemate situation at the start of the match, with Misaki pulling out the suprise counter to it at the end. They just never learned of the name in Misaki's route.

    "We are hoping to have the patch live within the first 24 hours after the game is released."

    That seems a bit ambitious given how little we know about the new release.  Kudos to them if they actually pull it off.  (Actually, kudos to them either way.)

    Well unless they happen too, you know *chough* already have it *chough*
