Site Work Failed, But We Didn't Die

Ugh. Still more roadblocks. Need to get an as-yet unknown password from Nay in order to get this sucker changed. For now, please enjoy the mess of a forums we've got, and dream of the forums we will probably never one day have.

  1. I can't even disagree with you and that's just sad. The rest of the story was great, but that BS at the end was, as you put it, just astounding.
  2. So I just finished all routes including the final one...I have one question.
  3. Looking for a romance I haven't read yet.

    @Mr Poltroon I'm not going to quote that entire list because that's too much. I'll proceed down it and talk about a few of what you gave me. A Profile - Never knew this existed, will put it in my to-read list. Crimson Grey- I have read this one a while back, it was pretty decent. I forgot to put this one on my list it seems Katahane - are you talking about Hinatabokko having the same art? Muv-Luv - I actually started reading this one but it just fizzled out for me, shame that Kimi ga Nozomu Eien will never see a translation it seems though. My Girlfriend fandisc - I didn't particularly care about the story anymore after 4 long routes. Maybe I'll go back to it sometime Never7 - I actually already have this installed but I've never read it, thanks for reminding me of it! School Days - Man, oh man, I could fill an entire page with my hatred of this VN's characters and their stupid antics. Yeah I've read this one, but I didn't put it on my list I guess. I also tried Shiny Days some time ago and had too many technical issues and read something else. Shinigami - Never even heard of this one, though the character with the scythe reminds me of Mare from Hoshizora Shining Song - Never heard of this one as well, will give it a read Tomoyo After - Haven't read this one because I heard the true end was garbage. Canvas 2 - Never heard of this one I don't think, I'll give it a try Otoboku - HdR gave me enough of the feminine MC for my entire lifetime The rest really aren't my forte as I don't usually read Yuri VNs, though I have read a few not on my list. As well as otome games not being something I'm really interested in, as it is harder for me to connect with a female protagonist when I pick the choices and the like. (Though I really don't mind female protagonists as Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun [shoujo manga] had a decent protag)
  4. Looking for a romance I haven't read yet.

    I've seen this one around, its art style just turns me off immensely but it probably won't be much different than what Kanon looked like. Might give it a read, thanks! \o/ Ruu!
  5. Looking for a romance I haven't read yet.

    I've read both Hoshi Ori and read the partial patch of Fortune Arterial, I am currently reading Sankaku and Damekoi, evidenced by myself saying as much in the original post. Thanks though! I've considered reading it, but I know that romance is more of a sub genre, and the overarching mystery is the main focus. I have nothing against the mystery genre, just not the genre for me, though it can sometimes go hand in hand with romance.
  6. Looking for a romance I haven't read yet.

    Ikikoi was less mediocre than HdR, but both really didn't have anything for me to take them seriously. Ikikoi was more entertaining to me, but HdR had some funny parts as well, though most of the time it was outright being an ass to the MC. If you have nothing else to read, it's not terrible to read.
  7. Well, title really says it all. I've read a lot of VNs lately, and have seemingly run out of material to read aside from Sankaku and Damekoi (which I am reading at the moment). Some of my more recent reads have been mediocre at best, with them being Heart De Roommate, Private Nurse, Figures of Happiness, and the more okay one, Ikikoi. Aside from what I have to read now, I'm afraid my entire backlog is no longer a thing and I was hoping someone could point me out something I may have glossed over when digging for titles to read or one I had never considered? My VNDB list is linked to the left and thanks in advance to anyone that gives me recommendations!

    Ah, another man of culture. Jokes aside, I still don't understand why the writers didn't give her a route as she had potential with her whole "I really don't feel whole if I don't work on airplanes, so I really have no interest in romance" and how falling for the MC could have easily seen some sort of character development with becoming a different person and such. As for your route list, I think you'll enjoy Hikari's and Mimari's routes, but Nahoko's really isn't good, which is why I gave this VN a lower rating. (Along with the fact of no Saiko route!)
  9. Not directed solely at you (You could have read it years ago, so I wasn't assuming you pirated it, I apologize for it looking that way but I wrote hastily as I was queued in a match lol), but most people I've seen say it has terrible translation on here and VNDB are recent readers and it is apparent they pirated the shitty version. The old version isn't possible to legally obtain anymore as the new version is the only one on MG. Again, sorry for not phrasing it better. I do agree Eiden Fantasia was shit though, as it had almost no connection to the original VN, aside from the side characters becoming heroines. The quality for the original is on par with DearDrops, and that read fine for myself but the translation really doesn't matter here. Just that if someone read the old translation it is certain they would be disappointed and likely say how bad the translation was, when they have the inferior version. (I also took your original post differently as I quickly skimmed over it, after rereading it, your points are valid with the fandisc having a high cringe factor, not just in dialogue, but all around. Sorry for any troubles ) Edit: Lesson of the day = Don't do things quickly kids, it just looks sloppy and gives off the wrong message! Oh and it makes you look like a dummy.(I am a dummy, admittedly.)
  10. Edelweiss was retranslated, everybody that says it has bad translation is playing the pirated version that is the old copy. How do I know? I was helping a stranger with this issue and he sent me a screenshot of the scene and I pulled up my copy from MG and they looked nothing similar and the font was different. Translation for both games were shit at first but were definitely better when they each got retranslated.(Eiden Fantasia might have been TL'ed with the release of the retranslation, as I don't remember if it had a shitty translation at first for certain.) Now, back on topic, Yume Miru Kusuri is a 10 on my vndb because it featured one of the most connecting stories for myself. Aeka's route on there is about her depression and her entire route made me recall the time I was with my Ex who had many of the same issues because of the frequent verbal/ sometimes physical abuse she endured at her own house. Many times I thought she would kill herself while I was sleeping, or that she would simply run away and not tell anyone. (I talked more about this months ago when I first completed Yume Miru Kusuri, and that thread has the full story of my ex, rather not rattle on about it here.) Aeka was the most relatable character to myself I've ever seen in a Visual Novel thus far. That is exactly why I remember her entire route still.

    This is probably easier than my method that I used so I would download this OP
  12. Visual Novel displays error message at startup

    I'll investigate further and let you know if I figure anything out, in the meantime, here's a vndb thread remarkably similar https://vndb.org/t10290 Seems the VN is stuck on directx9 and requires a lot of loopholes from a quick read-through of the thread. Edit: One search up of the VN leads me to MANY other users getting the same issues. Seems the company who made this has this issue on all of their games. Big Edit: I got it working, though the unicode is messed up when reading but that is much easier to fix by moving font files. Message me and I'll explain in further detail what needs to be done. And yes it is true that some VNs will not run on newer OS. Helping someone last night with installing and making sure the BGM ran for Never7 was a real hassle. Simple fix though, you must run the program in compatibility mode for XP or older and Never7 runs fine.

    More details are definitely needed here. What VN is this? Are you in Jap Locale? Edit: Where you got it matters a lot too.

    Just finished my last route about 10 minutes ago, it was Mimari's, by far the best route imo. Too lazy to do an in-depth review but I'll give it a 7.5/10 only because Nahoko's route was hell, else it'd be a 8.
