Woohoo, that's cool!
BTW, I love Tamaki, but I dunno about a "shadow side of cast" (i hope you understood what i meant :D) yet and how it will impress me.

I have no idea what you mean but then if you're talking about something incomprehensible in the text because you're playing an ancient beta then you're seriously missing out.

I should have known it was a bad idea posting betas. I'll never do this again on subsequent projects.

On the other hand, I will be giving all the people who worked on this project access to a release candidate final patch as soon as it's available before anyone else does. Assuming there are no difficulties with downloading and patching with the RC patch on various flavours of windows, that will be made available for download one week later. If this sounds like a software project schedule it's because I'm a software engineer and see merit in that approach - that's why I was releasing betas till beta10 and then noticed the technique wasn't quite as suitable here.

Nope nope, it's not about patch :)
I'm about Lucy, sisters, Sasara and Yuuki. They're don't appear in so called "common route scenes" if you don't make choises to their routes\scenes, that's why i called them "shadow side of cast".

Uh yeah if that release candidate post wasn't clear, the patch is done. Ruuko used her shaman magic on me again and put me into turbo overdrive like she did when I translated her ruute in record time. The only thing that's happening now is the editors and proofreaders are testing that the patch works properly on their systems.

Which brings me to a question for the admins @Tay, since this will be completed shortly, what's the protocol for this thread? I guess I update the opening post to make it more of a release announcement and then it stays open for a bit longer for people to post and then it will be moved and locked? I won't get to do this very often ;)

It was worth getting the internal staff to test the patch installer for they identified a number of minor issues to do with the patching process which will be fixed for the official release. This means we are on track for a release next week. I'll be editing the top post in the meantime but it doesn't mean the patch is out yet. Watch this space!

We can play things by ear with the mods! People know this thread and will come here for a while after you release for feedback/questions/complaints/compliments/brandishing pitchforks/weeping with joy. No need to close it until you feel like you're ready to do so.

Congrats on finishing -- looking forward to seeing how it all turns out! I remember fondly back in the day when I was tracking your project for VNTS by going to VNDB and checking for cryptic little edited comments. How far you've come!

Oh, that's good. I've 5 finished routes already so i don't want to skip them all ;D

These sorts of issues are precisely why I delayed the final release by a week to get as much useful information into the install instructions as possible, even though the actual patch itself is ready.

Would you think about to go for the prequel to heart after this project?:)

No, I think I'll move to slightly newer games after this. I already have something in mind which I may announce after the release announcement but I have no team to speak of to work on anything else yet.

Funniest thing, the hard drive I was using to do all the work on for this project decided to die today. It lasted just long enough for the release.

Of course I had backups on git of all my data but I would have had to reassemble the patches and notes which would have been a major pain.

Wow, talk about luck there xD ... Anyways, congratulations on finishing it, I might check out the VN later on ^_^
