    adamstan reacted to Zalor in Hentai games   
    What bothers me is when people dismiss VNs because of H-scenes, but then they will turn around and talk about how Game of Thrones and many other TV shows which frequently show sex scenes are their favorite shows. Especially when it comes to 18+ ploge, the amount of sex scenes they typically have is fairly comparable to the amount of sex scenes in many western dramas. So not that much. Therefore I see it as no reason to dismiss them for that alone.

    Yes. Cruise Sign works flawlessly with it.

    Maybe I'll give Cruise Sign a go then, because this doesn't seem to be working no matter what I do.

    No idea why it does that. I read console version with emulator and didn't have any problems. 
    But I don't remember any problems with running PC version either. If it was locale problem it should crash with error message, not freeze.
    Still I consider PS3 version to be superior. Akari's route is much better than pretty lame Himegi sisters threesome scene it replaced. Replacement scenes in other routes are also cute.

    Welp, just like wanting people to stop throwing Unity asset packs on Steam as original games... Shovelware will be Shovelware. Quite likely the only reason you don't get fed up with miserable-quality crap made by Japanese people is that it doesn't show up in the storefronts/sites you use.

    adamstan reacted to wheelchair goku in any1 want to translate masamune with me ?   
    yes i meant that, i forget the name
     
    i think i will still localize it as masamune as it is far better than muramasa.
    also i need someone to photoshop in sephiroth in place of the main character 
     
    i need help btw, i cant get past the menu of this game!!
    maybe i should not have downloaded this off some shady hentai site

    Currently starting january 27. Pretty interesting so far but I'm having the feeling I should have went for other route. I mean, Mai's one is great but I really wanted to check on Ayu better.

    I'm somewhere past the middle of Natsu no Ame 's common route. It's good - unless you dislike Konno Asta's style of course Rikako and her story in common route share some similarities with Kotori from IMHHW, but they're different enough.
    It also uses the trope which seems to be Asta's trademark, reappearing in IMHHW, ASFOS and ATRI
     
    On the technical side - VN seems to work pretty well with all major text hooking tools (I'm using AGTH for it), but there's one tiny problem - characters/words with furigana are rendered in separate thread/stream, so they are missing from the main hooked text.

    Yeah, there's more focus on ATRI's "internals" (and her past) later on, with some interesting twists as well. But still, at it's core it's nakige and the setting is just that - the setting I still think that it's best to treat is as a fairytale, that just happens to use technology instead of magic

    I just finished True Ending, and I'm in tears
    This VN is nakige that seems to be very good at tugging at my heartstrings. It was great read, and while I recognized tropes from many other works, it just all worked well together. Judging by the length and unknown publisher, I seriously didn't expect it to be that good. Some of the ATRI's backstory reminded me a bit of Tanaka Romero's writing. Obviously there are also many KEY influences - it's almost unavoidable when you're making nakige
    All in all, it was great, I can rate it on the same level as Kanon or Summer Pockets with confidence - so it's 8.5/10 from me.

    Yesterday I gushed about heartwarming piano scene, and then, just after that the twist hits me like a ton of bricks...
    I really hadn't expected that development.

    On a more positive note, the translation seems solid. The phrasing might come off as a bit overly extravagant at times, but it suits the mood of the game.

    I had no issues whatsoever with Nanairo Reincarnation from what I can remember, so this must be a screw-up from either the developer or the coders in the localization team then. I could accept stuff like this if I was trying to run a VN from the 90's on a modern system, but for one released in 2020, not so much.

    I'm tempted to try Asta's earliest VN - Natsu no Ame next.
    (I was lucky to score physical edition from Amazon for a great price.)

    Yeah... (Yumemi... ) but OTOH, To Heart's Multi, one of the first famous moe robot heroines, got her happy ending, so there's still some hope, right? Also, according to that walkthrough, True End is continuation of good ending, whatever it is.
    But then, even though I still have long way to go, I wouldn't be very surprised, if final pairing turned out to be Natsuki x Minamo.

    I'm not sure if you're referring to the sea levels rising, details about diving or something else, but none of that stuff really bothered me. I can imagine it might if you were hoping for something completely realistic, but that wasn't really my expectation in the first place so it hasn't affected my opinion in a bad way. If anything, I actually enjoy the writing in ATRI a lot and the translation feels very vivid and fluent. (especially compared to something like Forgotten Trace: Thanatos in Nostalgia, which just released)
    I saw the bad ending yesterday and have been playing a couple of hours more since then. I thought I was on track to the true ending now, but I guess I'll need to view another one before unlocking that then. In any case, I hope it ends on a positive note, but I know how these stories about robots tend to go so my mind is kinda getting prepared for having its hopes crushed.

    According to the walkthrough there are two endings - good and bad, and after completing both, True Ending is unlocked in the main menu.
    Do you mean that the setting (sea level constantly rising without any apparent reason) lacks proper scientific explanation? I think I had my expectations set differently, since, because of ATRI herself (extremely lifelike robot girl) I already treated the whole thing not as Sci-Fi, but as some kind of fairytale, so it doesn't bother me. And when treated like that, it is very enjoyable, at least for me.
    Also, remembering previous Asta's works I've read (IMHHW, ASFOS and Adventure of a Lifetime) - this VN is in line with those, it's "typical Asta". And he seems to reuse many tropes from his previous works. So if someone dislikes his writing, then they won't enjoy ATRI, and vice versa.

    Yeah, I'm reading it, and I think I'm nearing the end now and expect to be done pretty shortly. Great read so far, and yes, while I haven't compared it to the original Japanese, the English translation is definitely solid, although it contains a ton of typos and misplaced words (to the point where I'm questioning if the script was proofread at all).

    This topic is unusually quiet for a new VN. Is anyone else reading this?
    Yesterday I reached the point where
    The previous arc, with
    This VN has potential to be good nakige, at least for me - it has some good comedic moments, and at the same time, it's pretty good at tugging at my heartstrings. ATRI is lovely, I also really like supporting cast. Ririka, Ryuuji, Minamo, hell, even Catherine
    I don't know how much of the story is left there, but I assume that quite a bit, since I haven't even reached second choice point yet (out of supposedly three, according to walkthroughs). Since I'm reading untranslated, it's of course slower - I now have ~12 hours on the clock, so perhaps I'd have already finished the English version. But that's not bad - that way I can stay in this world for a bit longer So far I'm really loving it. If they don't fuck it up in some major way in the remaining part of the story, it will deinitely be one of the higher-ranked VNs in my list
    Also, to clarify my point on the translation from the previous post - it's liberal, but that doesn't mean it's bad. From what I have seen, it's actually pretty good. @alwayslonesome on r/vn expressed it nicely:
    It makes me want to reread the VN in English after completing it in JP.

    Yeah, I agree. It's just that some routes tried to do some drama, but it was kind of half-assed - it felt too rushed, lacking an impact. But overally I enjoyed M*L and its lightearted mood very much.
    When it comes to moege with overblown, and often pointless drama, infamous Harukoi Otome springs to mind Compared to that, Hatsukoi 1/1 was actually rather tame

    its nice to have no drama sometimes tbh, better than the forced drama some other moeges try to do (Hatsukoi 1/1 anyone?), thats one of the reasons I enjoyed most of the routes, Saki's route was also my first and nothing else beat it for me, Mashiro's one had the best puns though
