Huh, what could it be

>>18686520
From what I heard, this is basically true, JP programming is atrocious due to a bunch of reasons. Its standard practice for university students to study stuff that do not correlate to what they will be doing later. As a result, when they work, they are often trained on the job + self-taught. While self-taught programming does get the job done, this results in a lot of horrible coding practices, which combined with JP company culture in general...the problem snowballs from there. I know somebody who works on a UI patch for a JP MMO and from time to time he throws a fit about how horrible is their coding.

Irony is the same in the US except you are taught the basics somewhat. Then again universities are kind of bad vs things like Trade school or learning it in online courses catered towards that.

The one thing I dislike is just how much things they cram and useless information they give to you in University. I took a programming course and basically they made us go over math stuff as well along with programming. Did not take me long to drop out due to how boring and a waste of time it was.

Oh boy, Dies Irae's KS update time

>As of Monday, March 19 JST, we have sent the rewards to the shipping company in charge of the overseas rewards delivery. The rewards will arrive in the United States in about 2 to 3 weeks. Once the rewards arrive at the shipper, they will be packed and then shipped to you.
>Because of the continuous delays on our part, this update had also been postponed. With delay after delay, we have earned a growing distrust and have hesitated to keep posting updates citing only further delays that would only make you, our backers, more anxious and further distrustful. For this, we owe everyone an explanation concerning the setbacks.
>First, our inexperience with overseas shipping caused more delays than we expected. Because we usually use domestic (Japanese) logistic companies for our products, we were not prepared for the differences overseas companies will entail. From the language barrier to how the industry culture and norms function, we handled communication with the companies poorly.
>Second, we did not do our research on how reward shipments work with overseas logistic companies and did not realize packages required barcodes. Since we are used to Japanese logistics, which do not require barcodes, we have completely taken this procedure for granted, and wrongly assumed it was the same for other companies as well. Because of this, we had to make a barcode for each order, thus further postponing delivery.
>And lastly, it was our carelessness. We had multiple instances when our order numbers did not add up, and thus had to order for more manufacturing.
>From our inexperience and carelessness, we have caused you an unnecessary amount of trouble. We understand that we sound like we are making excuses; these factors do not excuse us, nor does it let us off the hook for our lack of action, but we want to let you know what has been happening the past few months with this update.

>>18695638
HD version magically supports 4:3 resolution, and that is why they are offering it in addition to the Steam version, which doesn't.

And that is because they chose to make both of those versions in parallell instead of making one game. And for some reason they didn't think how good it would be to make the patch for the HD version while they were making it, and instead wasted time on not making the patch for the Steam version.

Is better to do the side stories after you finish the route they unlock from since they are usually relevant or expand on some things from it as well as the characters along with some being an epilogue to the route.

We are just going back to how it was originally except maybe the market is more saturated than before making things slightly worse.
Most titles never really sold exceptionally well until the Steam boom came and boosted numbers initially. Now the fever has worn off the publishers are left holding contracts they made years ago when things were deceptively good and so they might struggle to make the Steam boom era sales targets to break even.

The industry should remain in better shape than it was before VNs were added on Steam, even if it isn't the sky is the limit expectations they had a few years ago. Steam isn't getting nearly the sales that they did during the height of the craze, but they still are adding a sizable amount of revenue compared to what MG would have just going through their site. Additionally, most of the companies that got onto Steam during the craze still have some old titles that continue to sell well as an addditional revenue stream (just look at MG's best seller list for Steam last year, or consider Sekai has Clannad/Grisaia/Nekopara), even if newer titles are at more risk of being a flop. That said, obviously some individual titles (like Wagamama High Spec) lost a fair bit of money because they were budgeted for the craze, and those titles will continue to be a pain as they work their way through the pipeline to be released for disappointing numbers. Also, the lower expectations will limit what localization companies can get from Japan, though the selection should remain much broader than what they were before Steam took off and within the last year even newcomers have managed to pick up a number of liscenses even with Steam being a shadow of its former self.

Steam's game bans over content makes it hard to count on steam always being available though. If Sonohana got hit, it's almost certain other games will get hit. Sekai's plan for an all-ages maitetsu version is probably 100% fucked.

Maitetsu may run into problems but it was an iffy license for Steam (and risky from a PR perspective) from day one even before they went back to get an R18 version. Their best way to migrate risk would likely be to port the console version as is for Steam, where you have a defense that Sony found the content acceptable, though even then it could become a PR headache just because of the nature of the title.

Most other titles should be fine, though if you have more Sonohana like removals then the companies would likely react by removing the casual nudity that Steam had been okay with until now.

>> No.18697096

>>18697051
They almost certainly will do the console content for the steam version... but that doesn't really mean much. Of the games steam has pulled for 'sexualizing minors', none of them had any explicit sexual content, and a number of them were without any nudity at all. If it took just one report to get Sonohana pulled, and it should have been pretty safe title, I don't think they have any chance with Maitetsu.

JAST's fanbase is the biggest one out of all publishers, they also are quite autistic just like Sekai's.
They can put out a 2-10 hours nukige for 35$ and it will sell because people want to ''support'' them.

My main complain about JAST would not be release time but actual translation quality, since I can't blame them for being so slow considering how much money they make from J-List.
Flowers translation fiasco aside, every other release since then was low quality. Princess X for example had names spelled in lower case and Nympho Sensei Ryoko had whole sentences translated as moaning sounds, it didn't have any QA at all and they had the audacity to charge 35$ for it, at least MangaGamer charges 15$ for their nukige trash.
But it could always be worse, right? At least they aren't translating -san as Mr. or Mrs. like in the good old days.

I don't think they're doomed, but they're definitely going to hurt holding on to high cost licenses without a means to recoup the cost. If their contracts are heavily royalty based, then it won't really be a serious problem, although it will hurt their reputation with their partners. If they offered minimum sales guarantees or paid flat rates for titles based on previously high expectations though, they could end up in a financial mess. With the humble bundle sales and kickstarters they've been running though, I doubt even then they're in any serious jeopardy.

These are games that can be interesting. Bunny black would be great with the good plot and basically gameplay elements.

It makes sense.

We have covered three hints with yuri titles already, and the "lucky" one is for a yaoi title, then we have the "otome" one. We just have the "steam" and "sakura" hints left.

And my delusional ass want the "sakura" hint to be about Sakura no Uta (i know Frontwing its the ideal candidate for that and that Scaji was dissapointed by SubaHibi sales), but yeah, it's probably Sakura no Mori Dreamers, which at least doesn't sound bad.

-Restoration of honorifics (including Senpai, Nii-sama)
-Removed DD's weeb speak
-Removed DD's excessive bong speak
-Removed buster
-EN name order -> JP name order
-Removed some of the swearing that was added in SP's version.
-Fixed a couple of minor mistranslations - this is not a re-translation by any means, I just fixed some glaring mistakes
-D.D. -> DD - The only reason this was done is because "D.D.'s" or "D.D.-san" looks like horseshit in-game.
-Cro->Kuro - Fuck you if you don't agree. I already wrote my arguments here, check the readme if you need a reminder.
-Reduced the frequency of "Little Michiru" (changed to Michiru when it's clear who's being talked to/about), especially in direct speech.

Cross Channel doesn't seem to be off to all that strong of a start on Steam. It has peaked at just 13 concurrent users thus far, but it has spent most of its time at less than 8 concurrent users. That said, of the limited response it has gotten thus far, most of it seems to have come from the Chinese market, getting 12 quick Chinese reviews and it has only managed to hit double digit concurrent users in the morning/early afternoon US time. Moenovel has previously shown an ability to get sales down the road through bundles and cross game promotions, but Cross Channel looks to be their weakest launch of any of their titles despite the $9.99 price. In contrast, A Sky Full of Stars had an initial peak of 73 concurrent users, and has maintained a fair bit of daily activity with no daily peak being less than 11 concurrent users in the several months since launch (and has a Steamspy estimate that suggests sales in the 3-6k range).

I doubt that Sekai would use the patch themselves (short of an official deal with the patch developer), but it wouldn't be too surprising if they highlighted it as a fan made "mod". Thus far all they have said is that they were gauging interest in a survey of their backers of Chrono Clock, but they could easily say that survey found that while there was interest in a new editing pass, it was not enough interest to justify farther delaying the physical release to do that editing pass and as an alternative highlight the fan-created patch.

No, you think it looks better because it's the first version you saw. You're used to it. You think it sounds better before you realize it doesn't sound anything like Chronos. It sounds like a fucking crocodile. There are no arguments for changing Chro to Cro, but there are arguments for changing Chro to Kuro.
Because you're too stupid to read the readme and instead rely on a cherrypicking twitter autist, I will copypaste it for you. Go ahead and try to disprove this.

Base arguments:
1. Purple Software's website ("B-But the official site has the spelling of the other characters' names different." No shit, different romanization rules. Everything was changed to modified Hepburn [already done by SP, thank God], and クロ is the same in both.)
2. The Japanese version of the game. Check the H-scene page in SP's version for the name, SP didn't edit that page. You can see Kuro there.

Arguable:
MC and DD's conversation about Natsume Souseki - MC starts saying "Wagahai wa Neko de Aru" (novel "I am a Cat"), but is interrupted by DD because the first word reminded her of Kuro (she uses wagahai as a personal pronoun).
I would argue that this is an indirect comparison of the two. They are both self-important and use wagahai. The majority of the illustrations I found depicted Wagahai as a black cat (黒 - kuro). クロ/Kuro is a common cat name (also appearing in this novel, though it's a different character). She later wears a black cat outfit. This is all very subjective, though.

Kuro vs. Cro
Before you say "Kuro is a not a logical pet name for someone called Chronos", well, neither is Cro.
1. Chro and Cro do not have the same pronunciation, if you pronounce Chronos correctly (Χρόνος). The closest sound in English would probably be Khro. Chro would also be acceptable, because this argument is only about the written form of the name/nickname
2. A pet name is not necessarily created by shortening the given name (for example Robert->Bob). Obviously the Japanese name was created by shortening Kuronosu->Kuro, but Chronos->Kuro can still work in English as a nickname.
There are several characters in other works who have Ch and Ku in their name/nickname respectively (e.g. Chloe -> Kuro in Prisma, Kurisu -> Christina in S;G)

An omicron rather than an omega does not determine the English pronunciation of a word; e.g. λόγος can be correctly pronounced "loh-gos". Words that use "chrono" as a prefix, e.g. chronotherapy, can also be correctly pronounced with "kroh".

No, Greek is the only relevant pronunciation here. It's translated into English, but all the names are to be pronounced in their original language. The exact same thing is done with any other character in the VN. The Japanese characters' names are read with a Japanese pronunciation, so why should Chronos be read with an English pronunciation?

>> No.18713012

You aren't reading the names in a Japanese pronunciation, you're pronouncing a Japanese name in a rough English equivalent. Japanese isn't even capable of making the distinction between omicron and omega that you're talking about, as they are two separate vowel sounds qualitatively.

I knew you wouldn't get it. Common words derived from other languages, which were oftentimes modified to suit the language better is not the same thing as a name. Take chronological, for example. I will 100% agree with you on the English pronunciation of that word. But Chronos is a name. It does not matter that there are words derived from its root in the English language. You pronounce names correctly, you don't fuck them up by americanizing them. That applies to any foreign language.

The traditional manner of pronouncing classical names in English is to render them into the English system of pronunciation. It is the reason why we pronounce Hercules as "her-kyuh-leez". This has nothing to do with America, as you'd know if you had any clue about what you're talking about.

Looking at three separate updates of the Cross Channel global achievements percentages on Steam (see https://pastebin.com/w8i0AbCV ), they have shown up as numbers locked in at specific percentage intervals. With them being roughly .67 apart as of yesterday evening, then .65 apart overnight, and finally .63 apart this morning, without ever having gaps less than .6 apart, I would venture to estimate that Cross Channel had roughly 150 owners on Steam as of yesterday evening, and roughly 160 owners as of now now. That said, I'm not sure how privacy settings, etc would influence what shows up in the global chart, and this is solely representative of owners reflected on the Global Achievements chart.

Obviously though, this estimation is only useful for titles with Steam achievements and a small number of owners. It is completely useless for a title such as A Sky Full of Stars which has achievements as close as .1 to each other (which isn't a surprise as Steamspy suggests it has sold a few thousand copies).

To farther add to this, using a 4th data point now, Cross Channel has maintained the pattern (though at .61 between increments, suggesting roughly 165 owners now). It is possible that it is a multiple of this, but without seeing any in between multiple over 4 updates and seeing achievements increment by a single value (for example, the final achievement going from 2 times the gap to 3 times the gap between two updates) makes that increasingly unlikely.

Provided that is accurate, Cross Channel is likely off to a rather disappointing start for Moenovel. At 165 owners and an $8.99 launch price, they would be at just over $1k in revenue at US prices, though with a number of their sales being to the Chinese market at roughly half the price it would drop even farther (although it would be a bit higher if privacy settings keep achievements from showing up on the global achievement charts). Even in the unlikely scenario that it is a multiple, it would almost certainly be at roughly 330 owners, which wouldn't make the numbers look promising either. That said, Moenovel will inevitably look for ways to cash in down the road as they have managed to do so with their other titles.

They announced Baldr Sky at AX 2016 saying "we don't have any details about what we are releasing" while a developer for Giga at the time noted that only an all ages release was planned, then directed farther questions to Sekai. Then in Fall 2016 at Anime Weekend Atlanta, they basically said "we are trying" for Baldr Sky while saying that they had a plan for R18 Maitetsu.

Eventually, Sekai made an R18 announcement for Maitetsu (although it was suppose to happen by the end of 2016, and didn't until AX 2017), but they have not suggested anything else about them getting R18 Baldr Sky aside from them occasionally saying "we're trying". It seems likely that while Sekai may have pivoted and began caring about R18 releases in the latter half of 2016 and had everything else sorted out by AX 2017, Giga wasn't looking to give them R18 Baldr Sky and just licensed out Baldr Sky to jump aboard the Steam train and Sekai didn't consider that a deal breaker (as they were getting one of the highest profile gameplay VNs and were negotiating with Giga while the Steam craze was still ongoing).

after putting the patch into the 18+ version, the game doesn't start - only shows the black screen and it freezes.
Any idea? The game runs fine without the patch

Does it stop responding? If not it's probably just loading, the patch increases start up time by quite a bit.

Go to srl.ini, change dump=false to dump=true and post results what the additional window says after game start.

Sorry, I mean debug=false to debug=true. I'm retarded.

Tried a bunch of things on both win10 and w7 but I can't seem to be able to reproduce it right now.
For now, try deleting Strings.srl. The game should create a new one when you start it. If all else fails, I'll just upload my game with the saves deleted.

it took about 2mins at this phase and then again the same error.
Were there any updates for CC 18+ version? Maybe I have the older game version and that's causing the error?

Yes, I have version 1.01.

Mine says 1.00e Unrated, so probably that might be the problem

Definitely. Get the patch or download it on nyaa. 1.00 had technical issues by itself once you got to the H-scenes.

It's super long.

Just had a thought, while otome might just broadly mean more otomege in general, it might also be a hint for Otoboku 2? Considering 3 was just released in Japan, it might be time to revisit that series?

It's not anime otome title.

Not sure what you mean, Otoboku is a VN series too.

I wouldn't read it to be anything more than a hint that they will have some more otome announcements.

No surprise at all, considering that Fashioning Little Miss Lonesome sold so well that it already got a physical edition pre-order.

>> No.18717798

>>18717217
Otome means female MC with male love interests. So Otoboku isn't an otome.
