I want to pound that royal butt while she refers to herself with the royal we while making that VN sex talk of describing things weirdly.
The one that said untranslated discussion was allowed only if it's related to a translated vn or something? I remember we used that one for a while, then some fag changed the OP and now everyone OP is different.
I love you too, anon. Let's go back to my apartment and screw.
>The one that said untranslated discussion was allowed only if it's related to a translated vn or something?
That's was actually the first change that resulted in all the back and forth (though it was delayed).
The original was is actually what's int the OP now:

As you can see it doesn't say "no untranslated discussion", so eventually someone changed it to "only if it's related to a translated VN", which ignited all this shitposting.
Last visual novel i played was Kanon 5 years ago.
What modern visual novels can i play that also have a very nice and comfy feel?
Bonus for those with good amount of interaction and good soundtrack.
Makoto best girl
Really the concept of "comfy" is really hard to grasp, it's not a solid thing that's easily identifiable and recommendable. Air also by Key was very comfy for me. Lots of people called Princess Evangile comfy. It's a tough question. Rewrite is the most modern key game and has a fairly good translation so that's the natural recommendation.
Hoshizora. Great soundtrack, interesting story, probably one of if not the best translated Moege.
IMHHW. Pretty comfy, great production values, bad localization. Use restoration patch if you play.
Princess Evangile. Comfy setup, good art, some of the best buildup in a moege.
Threadly reminder there's wrappers to be reverse engineered, TEST ALs to be detoured, and PRNG implementations to be NOPed while doing in-memory patching of EXEs with TLS in ollydbg
I wonder where Hatsune went in KnS 2. No one's mentioned her yet.
So, I've been trying to play ML Chronicles 2 and I've been getting this error. Googled it up and it seems it happened to the original ML but I didn't had any problems with it when I played it before.
Any idea on how to fix it? Ty in advance.
Not properly reinstalling because I can't reinstall it since I haven't found the unistaller or the VN itself on the Programs and Features but I did installed it once again and it didn't helped.
The torrent said it should've instaleld the rugp when I ran the setup but aparently it didn't.
Don't get me wrong, the H-scenes are really good in this, like the other IG works. They have some decent writing, and a shitload of CG per scene, 6 - 8 compared to most other VNs I've read. One scene even had two separate CGs for a blowjob. I was impressed when even Cartagra did this.
But there's only 8 H-scenes in this 40-50 hour VN, and the hardcore sex (ie genitals and penetration) can be reduced without removing any story elements while still showing the sex. The problem is IG never did an all-ages version so there probably wouldn't be any new artwork to make up for it. It would have been pretty beneficial to get the additional press and exposure that a Steam release would receive.
Yeah, you're a genius, bro. What a great idea.
I have no doubt that the lengthy and explicit scenes of young women being mutilated and dismembered won't be an impediment at all to any all-ages marketing attempts. God knows what those 12-year old French girls are into these days, amirite?
Have you considered applying for an executive position at Mangagamer? I can tell you really have the business savvy and expertise to help them expand into the mainstream.
Wow, what a smug fuck. Gore - mutilation of corpses, and showing breasts is no big deal though and is still within M-rated content and would be easily allowed on Steam. "all-ages" is just a commonly used misnomer when it really means removing 18+ content. Doddler has said he was thinking about an all-ages version too, but of course the difficulty is in IG doing the cuts and providing new artwork
>every male in this is buff as hell
He NTR'd your girlfriend before the game began and could benchpress you thrice over. Buff.
It's a good moege-nukige, I particularly like how the widow/mother is so flirty. It's making me smile a lot with how generally nice everything is. Only problems are the generally generic characters (I don't mind this personally) and the common route might drag on too long.
The protagonist actually comments on that, the answer is that she's "teasing him with the sex appeal of her overflowing breast which are larger than her daughters".
Also, what's the source on the bacground image from erogedownload, looks like the same studio/time that did Please teacher
Onegai Twins, a spinoff of please teacher
i don't like the premise too much though, is it funny at all? the only nukige i recall playing was pretty funny and that kept me playing it mostly
Not really, no, there's some parts that make you smile but it's not really funny. Pic related is pretty much my face the whole time I'm playing, but nothing has made me actually laugh.
haven't really played any comfy type games, i'll keep in in mind then, thanks anon.
Well that kind of goes without saying. When's the last time any VN actually made you laugh?
I personally can't think of a single "comedy" VN which has elicited anything more than mild amusement on my part. Actually, that applies to most Jap humour, I'd say.
>I think I got the true end
Good end is where Arc stays & is in a threesome with Ciel & Shiki. Arc is one step closer to obtaining Ciel's ass.
Tell me /vn/, what do you think of double bisexual Yandere threesomes?
I am a Japanese samurai!
Wooah! A samurai? Then, show me seppuku!
Ah, sorry. I am not a samurai. I am a commoner.*
*plebeian would be a better word her but slang has bastardized that so the mood would be wrongとおもう
>I assume the lack of context may be to blame.
You assume wrong, it made me laugh.
Humour is very much reliant on individual interpretation. An explaind joke is never funny, because comedy comes from the way someone parses the joke. If you don't parse it in a way that it's funny, then the comedy is just not for you
It's just too nonsensical for me to appreciate as genuinely funny. The second line with the guy wanting to see seppuku just made me go "wtf why?" so the joke had already lost me by the time it reached the punchline.
I think I had a natural reaction to some guy telling some other guy to kill himself for no apparent reason. That's why I assumed there must be some missing context.
For instance, maybe something like:
"Welcome to Japan, foreigner!"
"Thanks, I'm so excited to be here. There's tons of stuff I want to see!"
"Okay, what do you want to see first?"
"You're in luck! I happen to be a bona fide Japanese samurai. What's next on the list?"
"...I'm sorry. I lied. I'm actually just a commoner."
I have reverse engineered the portion of the wrapper that matters, and have made an unwrapper that should be able to unwrap versions 1 through 7. But before I present that, here's what I think about SoftDenchi. Quite frankly, the wrapper system is very weak. I don't know if Paltiosoft is underestimating people, or if they're incompetent, but the wrapper presents little challenge to anyone wishing to unwrap, especially if they've already gotten a valid activation key. The wrapper's protection is encrypting a portion of the protected EXE's code, but the amount is so small it's almost meaningless.
In the v7 sample I have 32 bytes are encrypted starting at the entry point. If you know about reverse engineering, you will know that the entry point typically contains the runtime initializer, and this code is similar between many executables using that runtime. So it's possible to just find another EXE with similar code, copy it over, fix a few offsets, and you're done. Exit, from above, is v6, and only had 16 bytes encrypted. There is no anti-dump, so you can just run the game, dump process, and copy over the unprotected bytes. Not only that, but the wrapper uses a publicly available PRNG implementation, and using that to perform XOR encryption. (It's a good thing they did that, because it meant less work for me. I wonder what the period on the PRNG is.) The wrapper has no support for in-memory patching of EXEs with TLS nor relocations. And you can practically skip all of its licensing checks by jumping past those instructions (and it'll decrypt and launch the game, with enough time for you to do a memory dump).
Overall, it's just braindead and rather pathetic. You don't even need a code to decrypt it. If this is what company that made "the #1 DRM system used in Japan" can come up with, I think it is rather insulting to the Japanese.
>mfw just hacked a game and all of that is above my head but I feel still cool
Oh shit Kara no Shoujo 2 is out?
Does anyone have a torrent?
Good taste anon, that made me laugh out loud too.
Now that I think about it, Air had me gasping for breath too. Everytime the MC said ダッシュ!(dash!) and ran away from social contact I couldn't help but guffack. Especially when he crashed into a kid and instead of escaping he had to spend 5 minutes consoling the sobbing child while the girl easily caught up to him and chastised him.
I'm also weak to 顔芸.
She's in the agave afterstory if you choose the sisters route instead of the momo/miyako route. She gets her own scene and one with the other sisters but the route is focused on Tatsuko
There is nothing wrong with liking Kazuna, right?
Were they? I did all of the routes except one and he wasn't particularly funny apart from when he was teasing the girls and that's not really funny from an outside perspective.
what? isn't it down right now?
I thought Nanako's sprite was sexy looking, but then she's stuck in that same damn pose for the entire game. It looks weird when it zooms in on her face too.
Cartagra had fun characters. KnS 1 lacked that feeling, although some of it is back in 2.
Oh my fucking god. I thought the dream bullshit in Kanon and the memory loss schtick was stupid as hell and typical wishy washy 2deep4u keyshit but it all makes sense now. I'm so glad I left Ayu's route for last.
Ayu's route is definitely the true route I'll fight anyone who says otherwise
sorry for not being so depraved to get aroused on snuff shit.
Got nothing about gore in itself, but IG games make it a habit of blending over erotic, sex and gore, it clearly is targeting the sickest of all people.
Why the fuck do you think you should get aroused at the scenes with gore? None of it is sexualized aside from the body being naked.
There's not even any rape in the entire series despite it being really dark and brutal. There is no "blending over erotic, sex and gore" unless you're talking about separate scenes throughout the game.
>None of it is sexualized aside from the body being naked.
>aside from the body being naked
They are all sexualized, and it's even made more clear when you see that the story or characters don't really get bothered by it so that they don't upset people reading it for this.
Having the body being naked doesn't mean they're sexualized. The bodies not posing in a sexually provocative way. None of the text indicates any kind of sexual arousal on the part of the person doing the killing or on the part of the person being murdered.
So perhaps you interpret seeing a nude body as being erotic to the point of getting off to that alone, but nothing in the text or the situation makes it sexual.
Literal snuff porn only for those with the most depraved fetishes
Awesome bait, though I can't help but feel you'd be better off deploying it elsewhere.
I can think of two separate scenes where sex and violence are mixed and in both they're written in ways that are explicitly not arousing to the reader. Though our shitposter could just as easily say they were like how people jerk it to commercials or children's shows. (everything is subjectively arousing)
>Though our shitposter could just as easily say they were like how people jerk it to commercials or children's shows. (everything is subjectively arousing)
Every single time it's the story of some guy cutting in half girls leaving nothing but her boobs, inserting stuff in their uterus and taking pleasure from it (in KNS case its eggs) then every single picture is displaying bodies with their vaginas in sight.
It was so purposely detailed, there is no doubt about what they are trying to do.
So why do they insist on those scenes? Even the description is really precise on how the guy likes to manipulate their genitals while cutting them.
Get fucking real, idiot, they are meant to be snuff.
Not as good as KNS, but it's solid enough.
Art is good too.
Remember that it was out before KNS 1.
You don't think that they could be describing in detail the violation of what is considered a girls most sacred part to elicit feelings of disgust or shock in the audience rather than as fap material. I get that vns aren't exactly free from fanservice but you're insane desu.
I didn't like it.
Fairly weak story with too many contrived coincidences. Piss-poor antagonists with vague and inexplicable motives. Entire world somehow revolves around protagonist (though you only find out in the true ending, so it doesn't impede the novel's progression, only its resolution). Plot twists you can see coming from a mile away. Too many forced and completely hamfisted H scenes getting in the way of the plot.
At least KnS was a vast improvement.
I'm about to die right?
I chose the wrong path?
No it's got h-scenes but the routes are done in a really stupid way where they're all part of the same overall story which doesn't change except for the girl you get in a relationship with and the ending.
I was kind of dissapointed when Yumiko's backstory didn't involve, father-daughter, rape genital mutilation and caesarean section of yumiko's rape child with a box cutter. It seemed like the perfect setup for it.
I was kind of disappointed when
Mitcher's backstory didn't involve consensual sex in the missionary position for the purposes of procreation.It seemed like the perfect setup for it.
>das feel when the soundtrack is so good is sends shivers down your spine
I get to chose who is going to bath me.
So who do I pick?
Here we go, this bath is gonna be good I can feel it.
What a slut, I'm glad I didn't pick her.
She gonna make me a scene because I don't want to bath with her now.
Oh, I thought he meant he'd be ending information technology.
I don't really know.
I mostly just shitpost so it would be too awkward for everyone when I'd compulsively start shit-talking about VNs.
Weed is fucking great, but yeah if I had to choose between beer and weed I'd rather take beer too.
There's no VN discussion here, why do you think people would discuss them in RL? I can already imagine someone bringing up F/SN and someone stuttering out "n-nasu tard" before dropping back into silence for the rest of the meeting.
Oh god I can see it too
The one guy who will bring a picture of Eika from Ikikoi with him and show it around trying to get a laugh as he calls it kamige, but fails so he awkwardly leaves early too
Yes and yes. You know your shit, anon. Still haven't read BishoujoM yet.
>tfw enrolled in masters degree in university
>live like a NEET, never attend anything, procrastinate as much as possible
>cram 3 days before a mandatory test and completely forget about the material covered afterwards
Soon I'll be the real deal
Some of the Cartagra and KnS 1 art has weird anatomy.
i get that its a perspective thing, but its fucked up none the less.
Its supposed to be a fisheye effect to some extent yes? Either way her left arm looks massive compared to the rest of her body.
it doesn't look massive at all, I don't know what you're talking about, there is nothing wrong with either pictures even though I admit that sometimes some stuff isn't looking right.
If you want fucked up proportions see Tsukihime.
Getting fucked in the ass by a man doesn't make me gay right?
>dem cropped CGs (literally everybody's scalp gets cut off in CGs
>dat extra money for voice acting
>dat $40 for a 7 year old game
>Cropping isn't really a big deal.
I prefer my characters having scalps
Every CG just looks off, it's definitely a deal-breaker for me considering I play enough 800x600 VNs that high res isn't a big deal to me.
Don't pretend to be me, all I'm seeing is some gay billiards balls.
Yeah, tilting is to fix perspective tilted images, and the original wasn't tilted, ergo no tilting is necessary.
Tiltposting is a heroic act of fixing VN producer's wrongs, not a wanton "tilt everything !!!1" meme.
>a heroic act of fixing VN producer's wrongs
then you came to the wrong place bro.
Its even better when you combine it with other memes.
Is somebody trying to tell me something?
It's not like licensing gets any cheaper over time in this medium. The point of these releases is to make the VNs more widespread in the west. Selling products at a substantial loss isn't the way to do that.
He's false-flagging and just posting images from the VNDB random screenshots. When /jp/ posters actually post they regularly do so from whatever VN they're reading, not three different ones in 10 minutes (>>121410315 >>121410098 >>121409910)
I miss /jp/ posters. You assholes bullied them away and now they will never come back ;_;
Good riddance, now if the remains of them left, i'd be dandy
No it's an anime called "Daitoshokan no Hitsujikai"
Why are you posting a VN only you can read?
There is topic overlap though. You can post about retro games in /v/ or /vr/. Not like /v/ goes nuts and screams every time someone posts megaman. Never thought I'd see the day when /v/ was more mature than /vg/.
i don't post in the the /jp/ thread because i'm against that dumb division they make for translated games, I like some of the games that have been translated, and when Himawari or Subahibi get english versions then what? I won't be able to post about it there anymore? I think we should all just get along
But there's a big difference between a chatroom with images like /vn/ and a board in which topics and threads survive for a very limited amount of time and based on the interest in the OP's chosen subject.
>implying said pleb would ever recognize Kikokugai, even if the screenshot was of the English version
No one here would read a VN where you mutilate and kill women instead of fucking them, and where all the h-scenes consist of sadistic rape of the heroine.
I think we'd get along here a lot better if the untranslated discussion actually consisted, well, of actual discussion instead of just images from untranslated VNs with no text in the post at all which seems to be the norm, especially in this thread.
And if there aren't enough interested parties to engage in discussion of a particular title then they should probably try /jp/ instead instead of just image dumping.
I guess you don't frequent the slower boards where threads can last for months.
Those are chat rooms too, I hung out on an Umihara Kawase thread for like 2 months with some other people, despite the lack of inactivity the thread actually developed regulars who had auto-update on and kept the thread in a background tab until someone posted. That fits the definition of "4chan thread" chatroom in my mind.
There is getting along, and there is retards coming here to purely shit and bait post with their untranslated shit.
No need to get into this pointless discussion yet again. Translated shit goes here, untranslated has their own threads.
that's definitely not english. THIS IS AN ENGLISH BOARD ONLY POST PICS WITH ENGLISH. THAT INCLUDES T-SHIRTS.
what does that have to do with anything?
I know you're just baiting, but here
It's not a separate DLC. There are two different versions of the game. One without the licensed voices at a discount, and one with the licensed voices at the usual price. You don't need both, nor is it a scam in any way.
