It's about time the industry tries out new things. It doesn't matter what for now. ADV and the like have been dying for how long now? Shitty moege aren't going to fix that. More and more ero isn't either. By the book chuuni won't do it either.

We are at the point where just going all out with weird ideas is good, just to break the mold. And let's be honest, Watanabe isn't the worst thing that could happen, to do this kinda stuff. Looking a little more towards what anime and LN do isn't wrong to start with.
When our medium became big, one of the big assets it had going for it was being super experimental. All kinds of shit happened, most of which people forgot by now. But it gave the medium life. Going back to something like that is the best thing that could possible happen. Even if you won't have every fucking damn game being the exact same shit anymore and have to look around to find what you might like.

もっと!孕ませ knew how to deal with Academy Isekai.

Miburo had a predictable story for anyone familiar with the Shinsengumi and the Bakumatsu period of Japan. Also, the music was bad and the protagonist's power was underutilized, ultimately not amounting to much.

Still I would say Miburo is a solid title, I will take it over a Yuzusoft-esque moege. Loved the sprite manipulation, normal ending got me emotional.

I still have Chusingura in my backlog. When this new title gets a release date, I will play it. Hope I don't get burned out on Japanese historical fiction vns though, I have read a lot of them.

And what makes you think emulating those things will improve their situation? People can already buy light novels, and a whole lot cheaper than visual novels.

You may as well compare it to mainstream video games or Hollywood movies, both of which are enormously successful industries despite being completely creatively bankrupt.

>> No.22371817

>>22371647
Exp goes towards raising the level multiplier (神秘系数), not the level (神秘等级) itself. The formula is multiplier*(multiplier/2 + 貢献*5 + KFB/1000 + postcount/100), where every term in the parenthesis is floored. Hopefully you can see why spending 5k on exp lowered your level.
Fully explaining how to play the damn browser game properly would take essay length posts but some quick notes:
If you're just going for maidrmbuster, stop playing and just google it. Someone threw a copy on github or something.
If you're purely aiming to boost your level, use the 同人漫画 items and sell everything else. Never buy exp. KFB will be your main source of levels. This severely gimps your stats though so only do this if your final level goal isn't over like 10k or so.
If you actually like this piece of shit browser game then use all your items and buy exp the instant you have enough KFB. You can roll for a stat multiplier in the 战力光环 page by spending KFB or 貢献.
For early level gear grab any 短弓 with any armor that has 获得无护甲魔法盾500+(等级x20) in the 主属性 section. Skill points wise go for something like a 1:3 ratio on vitality and speed and leave everything else at 1. This'll last you to floor 50 once you have enough skill points (which could take like half a year).
貢献 farming involves helping people find image sources which adds 0.5貢献 to your daily bonus. You can also actually contribute by posting stuff like games, h-audio, or doujins but the formatting requirements are incredibly strict and so isn't too worth dicking around with. That said if you manage to figure it out, buying some obscure ass 200 yen h-audio on dlsite and posting it can net you like 20貢献. Or one of the resident assholes might contest your post for whatever reason they felt like that day and you have to work it out with the administrators.

But again if you just want that drm thing just google it. This shit really isn't worth figuring out unless you're already in too deep like me.

That was the problem. If you knew anything about the history of that period you knew the entire VN. Chusingura, while being based on that historical period, explores it in different ways over each route before culminating in an ahistorical climax. Instead of "this person died at this event historically so lets kill them off" and then thats it they are done for the rest of the VN, its "we can do the historical end in this route, and do something else in another". Chusingura had so much more room for characterisation and growth, if someone told me Miburo was Inres first VN and Chusingura was their second I would believe them, Miburo is such a step backwards.
>and the protagonist's power was underutilized, ultimately not amounting to much
I picked up on this as well. They gave him an ability that lets him beat enemies and strategise and then have him lose all the historical battles anyway? Why even fucking bother. It just ended up being a tie in for the sequel hook.

The side routes are not like this. The route where Yamanami Keisuke's suicide is prevented and she eventually becomes an instructor or saving Heisuke from being killed in the ambush, for example. I don't doubt that Chusingura's protagonist change the main story in his game more though, dude had time traveling powers right? If he was in Miburo there might be a Serizawa route. Or a Edo Bakufu wins route.

>It just ended up being a tie in for the sequel hook

Glad that sequel is not the next title, I have no interest in the Russia getting dominated in by Japan in war. And the character that died in the main route normal ending before the sequel bait true ending should have stayed dead.

Inre's next game needs a better composer, a main character who can actually change history on a wide scale when the story constantly hypes his ability to do so, and at least one route for each major faction, that are not 1-1 reproductions of real history.

The side routes are all like 30 minutes long and are not canon, as well as being pretty disappointing in and of themselves. Shit, Okita still dies in hers. In Chusingura the routes are much longer and are linear, although there are still a couple of 'what if' endings.
>I don't doubt that Chusingura's protagonist change the main story in his game more though, dude had time traveling powers right?
It's more he's stuck in a time loop and has to figure out what the boundarys are. Which is much better than 'MC has I Win superpowers that he ignores the entire game'.
>Glad that sequel is not the next title, I have no interest in the Russia getting dominated in by Japan in war.
I don't even know how a sequel would work. Most of the characters are dead and the living ones would be in their 60's. You would need a new protagonist, but that would make it being a sequel totally irrelevant. I have no idea what they were thinking, not just with the ending but with the entire game, it's just a huge mess.
>Inre's next game needs a better composer, a main character who can actually change history on a wide scale when the story constantly hypes his ability to do so, and at least one route for each major faction, that are not 1-1 reproductions of real history.

People can have fun when stories are good. Surprising, I know. But don't worry. Japan loves their happy endings and usually use them no matter how dumb it'd be and how much of the story it makes pointless/terrible.

The best characters go through all kinds of emotions and situations. If everything works out all the time, or problems are artificial and no real problem, characters have a hard time shining. It's why moege characters will never outclass characters from works with more going on.

They have nothing to offer, if there's a random happy ending at the end invalidating everything. Which is common, especially with the most typical "bittersweet" setting: Separation. Be it moving away, a god going back to their place, dying or whatever. Feels to me like in at least 9 out of 10 cases the writer pulls out a happy end out of the ass last second without explaining how that can be. And if it sometimes doesn't happen, you get a FD that does it. (happened even this year...)

This game is probably one of the "babbies first VN". The character types couldn't be more common and the stories go hand in hand with that. Someone also thought it's a good idea to make every damn character more or less into some sort of "childhoodfriend".

-The princess is the "has met him once when she was young" type.
-You have the "lives next door" type including the "windows right next to the window of MC's room"
-The non blood related younger sister type living in the same place
-The non blood related older sister type

It's pretty awful to be honest, unless this is your first visual novel, as the stories are also extremely standard and not very well done. The one minor positive route of this was Midori, which somewhat reminded me of Daito. But even her route was ultimately messed up in the climax, where the problem was made into a no-problem instead of solving or dealing with it. It's super unfitting, as this also meant the underlying issues are simply ignored. Great writing. But at least it's "happy", huh? Right.

I stopped during Estelle's route, which was added later on. The writing was still at best mediocre here, which isn't working with a sensible thing like racism that they tried to look at here. Honestly though, nobody needed this. The entire fucking game doesn't care about the moon + earth setting and NOW they are starting? So half assed with a generic racism plotline? Oh come on. The setting was so wasted on this game.


To be honest, I still don't understand how August managed to create Daito. It's mostly the same writers, yet Daito is actually good. Sure that has its issues, but it's still like day and night.

>> No.22399260

>>22396974
Same, but I'm a bit conflicted both ways. On one hand I really liked Fureraba and Making Lovers because of what you said. I ended up disliking Loverable and Pure x Connect's common routes because both were pretty much the usual kind of pseudo-harems where a large number of girls are constantly interacting with the protagonist and some have developed feelings for the oblivious fucker even before their routes, but I'm wondering if a proper harem manages to actually make it click with me. I do wonder how extensive the advertised different harem types / routes end up working in practice. Apparently choices also affect how early you start seeing H-scenes, so perhaps we can stop the protagonist from being a faggot early on.

But yeah, like >>22397172 said it's also very possible all the advertised stuff ends up being nothing. They made a big deal about date spots in Making Lovers, but let's be honest, the mutually exclusive scenes weren't even that long and there were only a handful of those choices per route. On the other hand the advertised different workplaces and homes for each route worked really well, so it's hopefully not all smoke and mirrors in this case either.

Finished 一緒に行きましょう逝きましょう生きましょう.

So the basic premise is that the protagonist wakes up in a post-apocalyptic world, inside a ruined building trapped in a body he can’t move, and is found by the immortal main heroine who according to her claims is doing God’s work as the entire humanity’s representative by going around re-experiencing the death of literally every single mammal in existence. So begins the two characters’ journey going around experiencing gruesome deaths, while the protagonist wants to find clues about other possible survivors and tries to convince the heroine that suffering through countless deaths is both stupid and pointless, meaning the two characters’ interactions are the main focus for the entire run.

Problem with this is that the sole heroine simply isn’t that interesting: a girl who’s almost completely oblivious to concepts like fun and happiness being taught to enjoy various normal human things, then starting to feel conflicted about her duty isn’t exactly anything new. Arcs flip flop between cheap “please leave me alone” drama before a character realizes that being alone sucks ass, later followed by another “no, I’M gonna leave YOU alone” drama where the other character also eventually realizes being alone actually sucks ass. Or both characters switching between arguing in favor or against the main heroine’s God given duty, her painful death-revival cycle and whether the job must be finished or not. Over the course of the game both characters somehow manage to go through both sides of the argument.

Plot and mysteries definitely aren’t the game’s stronger points either. Setting-wise the game is a mix of both sci-fi and fantasy, but nothing about the background or central plot elements ever really gets fleshed out properly, especially the fantasy-leaning ones. Not even hinted and left open in a way that there’d be something to hypothesize over; things just happen to work in a certain way simply because drama demands so, end of story. While there’s a handful of twists, they aren’t exactly anything wildly unexpected and mostly just act as a catalyst for more flip-floppy drama. So all that’s left is a game that doesn’t say anything meaningful, carried by weak characters, weak plot and weak themes. Overall an inoffensive budget title with no real ambition that just wants to get a cheap emotional response out of you.

Dunno what made the developers decide to do this but I hope they keep it up, they're actually fappable compared to the usual moege h-scene and they don't even feel that out place when the set up for the game is already so dumb.

I thought the same when I was new to eroge but as the years pass I started to not care about most of the non-kamige games. I remember being really hyped for a bunch of average games (like Natsunagi, Evolimit, Iroseka etc) but nowadays I don't care to touch them and just wait for promising new releases, there's too much other better stuff in other mediums. So don't worry, going slow is probably best for eroge.

Played through こもれびに揺れる魂のこえ. I can't appreciate enough how retarded this game is.

A healing lolige taking place in an orphanage with a priest protagonist whose occupation never comes up in any way. I'm not joking, the game quite literally never even mentions religion. A calm, even a bit boring common route, but an inoffensive one that gets the job done. After it the writer went insane, because I can't find any other rational explanation for the ensuing trash. A little drama for each route would’ve been fine and that’s what the game essentially delivers you in the end, but the same contrived background reason for everything is delivered with the grace and subtlety of an industrial jackhammer, and none of it is ever actually used outside backstory.

I don’t mind genre shifts, but it’s hard to even call it that in this case. It’s more like everything just has to be tied to the same contrived plot reason that doesn’t actually influence the game events themselves, and which could’ve been easily replaced with anything more conventional. For example: Sui got abandoned by her parents because she’s just a cheap clone of their dead daughter instead of just explaining she had regular bad parents, the main drama whether she leaves or not would've stayed exactly the same. Ayana has issues because the scientists ran her through some tests that are never elaborated further and touched her inappropriately, instead of just giving her a normal abuse background. Koharu has an existential crisis and super intelligence and has said intelligence hidden behind a memory wipe that the Creator made sure of, a trait that NEVER gets brought up. The protagonist has a split personality because adafdsfsadfasd science, with said personality shift rearing its head only in Koharu route for some reason, and his Creator brother was a rapidly aging genius like this was motherfucking Metal Gear or something, instead of the protagonist just having a bad childhood.

All of these backstories could’ve easily been replaced with anything sensible considering the actual scope of the game. And the diary with all of the information is clumsily dropped on you at the end of common route, cue moping protagonist. Or if deciding to keep it, the sub-heroine routes that are locked for no reason whatsoever could’ve been perhaps used to dive into the setting so the background stuff isn’t just left up in the air, but instead they’re just gutted side routes that are literally a scene or two long and just an excuse to have H-scenes. Tsubaki’s is especially weird, because it’s a start of a basic utsuge plot where the background trait actively causes more drama, but it’s just a few minutes long and ends with nothing solved. The end result is a game where the heavy plot stuff doesn’t get used enough to justify itself, and character drama feels weird since the said plot stuff is only in the background.

The pacing of romance is also bad to the point even Elevens at EGS dislike H-scenes. Sui’s first H-scene for example doesn't make any sort of sense. There’s very little romantic development, or to be more precise, a girl who doesn't understand literally anything. She's characterized as a heroine who even has a hard time finding right words for her emotions and needs to ask about basic shit all the time like a toddler: for all intents and purposes a girl who very likely doesn’t even know about the very existence of sex. The protagonist himself is a basic nice guy as well who didn’t really get development of suddenly viewing Sui as a love interest either, nor is the guy characterized as a natural born lolicon or anything. Sudden H-scenes are nothing special in this medium, but in this case it just doesn't make any sort of sense for either character. The protagonist just pushes her down and a few lines later they’re both undressed. And no, the game doesn’t even acknowledge the perviness or the taboo of the situation either, so it’s not like you can even fetishize it. It’s so weird and out of place.

As for other nitpicks: There’s also the usual kind of contrived plotge related stuff like events only happening dependent on route that has no actual correlation to anyone’s actions, like the protagonist’s evil split personality only manifesting in Koharu route, Ayana’s emotions only getting out of hand in her route, or Sui’s grandparents appearing only in her route. It’s just lazy. All in all, we got a crazy background element that doesn’t actually do anything in the story that could’ve been replaced with literally anything that didn’t require the writer to stop taking his medication, a priest protagonist who never does or thinks anything even remotely priestly, gutted routes and romance that is more sudden than me cooming prematurely if I ever happen to lose my virginity.

Also I’m well aware that I’m likely overthinking this and it’s probably just a silly reference for reference’s sake that doesn't get explained, but the side character triplets, who in this game were also revealed to be clones because of course everyone has to have the same retarded backstory, are apparently characters in Nanatsuiro Drops as well, which I haven’t played yet, but isn't it supposedly altogether different genre unless it too has some sort of crazy sci-fi twist in store? Hold on a fucking minute, are all of Unison Shift’s games actually in some same insane continuity? Does Komorebi also actually have something tangentially related with the earlier released Innocent Eye’s, which is apparently proper full-blown sci-fi title?

At least I now know which games to play next, because I MUST see the end of this rabbit hole.

Why do VNs so often seem to go so overboard with censoring?

If JAV can get away with showing assholes and pubic hair, why do so many VN developers feel the need to put them behind a mosaic? It's especially baffling considering there are some VN developers out there who don't censor these things and seemingly don't run into any legal issues as a result.

I wonder about this too, same with the audio censorship where the same voice actress can go from a game with fully uncensored ちんぽ and まんこ on every h-scene to a game with a bleep censor on the occasional ちんちん.

It's not so much the big twist itself I'm having a beef with, but the fact that the actual plot of the game feels like it's merely giving the backstory lip service to the point that it could've been easily replaced with any conventional sad past(s) without affecting the overall drama each character goes through in their respective routes. Sui is a clone, but it's a non-issue to her grandparents. Ayana is also an artificial human and *somehow* special, which apparently led her to get roped into some nasty experiments, neither of which get elaborated further and just act as a stand-in for the fact she was abused in the past. Koharu supposedly has sealed super-intelligence, but it's just an informed trait that never actually gets brought up outside the diary. Then there's characters who actually have more information available and could elaborate further (Mao) or are actively afflicted by their situation (Tsubaki), but for some reason they're relegated to sub-heroine roles and don't even receive proper routes.

When I picked this game up I was expecting a charage with likeable heroines, and when the diary that delivers nearly every twist in one go made its appearance, I changed my expectations and started looking forward to a good plot - maybe some further crazy twists down the line. It feels like I got both my expectations betrayed: the game just ended up being regular drama + weird setting that doesn't really get elaborated further or used in the actual plot of the game aside from backstory. So the whole thing ends up feeling like it was just for the sake for standing out, or maybe that the original plan was for the game to be bigger and the character traits were also supposed to play a part in the present as well, but things got cut, and it's the reason why Mao and Tsubaki's routes that could've held some potential are nearly non-existent.

But yeah I actually downloaded several Unison Shift games and I'm planning on going through them next, either Innocent Eyes or Nanadrops first.

The game is not properly cracked, it will not work on Windows 10 with this crack (uncracked one too). Somebody didn't remove the part of the protection that checks for API hooks (CreateFileA, ReadFile, etc). On older Windows exports of these API point to functions, on Windows 8 and later they are replaced with a FF25 jump to the function - this change in OS design is at fault because the retarded protection thinks the API got hooked and exits. This issue persists on many older games protected with some shitty unnamed protection that has a "peC" in the section name like this one.

Easiest solution is to code a loader that hooks these functions in a way that doesn't get detected (it checks for jumps, CC breakpoints, possibly something else). Pretty sure only these are checked:
CreateFileA
ReadFile
WriteFile
CloseHandle
GetFileSize

Finished Innocent Eye's in one sitting, without a walkthrough.

A point'n'click eroge about a scientist protagonist, a clumsy spoonbender, and the daughter of the facility's head of research getting locked inside an underground psionics research facility, trying to save the little girl main heroine locked at the bottom of it, and hopefully find out what the hell is going on. Or at least I finished the main heroine's both endings; as far as I'm aware there's no other unlockable true ending for completing everything else. Apparently the game automatically railroads you to her "route" unless you specifically only pick flags favoring one of the two side heroines that you spend the majority of the game with, but I can't be arsed to do the gameplay again, because the proper branch for each heroine is only at the very, very end of the game and everything else stays the same. The H-scenes are all stacked there as well. Not that either of the side heroines were even remotely interesting characters, so my educated guess is that I'm not missing out on much. The main heroine's endings properly wrapped up the main plot anyways, so I'm satisfied it accidentally turned out this way.

If you view the game as a short but sweet gameplay title akin to numerous free RPG Maker games, it's an alright point'n'click timewaster. Puzzles are serviceable enough and don't work on retarded moon logic, so the game is perfectly finishable even for people who aren’t great at these type of things. However I’d recommend taking notes while playing as there’s a large number of rooms and it’s easy to forget what's where. The game also handily highlights interactable environmental objects, so you don’t need to pixel hunt like YU-NO or Caucasus. Map movement is also both fast and simple, so backtracking doesn’t become an issue. In this sense, I actually want more eroge like this. What I was not fine with were the handful of instant game overs: there's like three in the entire game, unless I missed some. First time it comes as a total surprise just by clicking a thing, second and third instances thankfully let you back out and save beforehand. So if you forgot to save you'll get fucked. They don’t even add any plot, they’re just “oh shit nigga you ded” non-endings without CGs, and they’re in rooms you don’t need to completely explore anyways so it’s not like they’re punishments for fumbling a puzzle either. The game would’ve been better off by removing them altogether. They and the random crashes to desktop are a good excuse to save every time you make progress. Skipping with CTRL always crashes the game without fail as well, but thankfully the in-game skip button doesn't.

As a full price eroge however, it's pretty abysmal. Heroines aren’t very likable or fleshed out apart from the bare minimum that’s required for the plot to work, everyone’s VAs are pretty terrible, writing in general feels very janky and flashbacks about characters are dropped on you at the beginning with no rhyme or reason to give an excuse why they're there. Handful of starting scenes after the characters get trapped are also way too lighthearted for the overall tone of the game. So lighthearted in fact that even the CGs have entirely different lightning from the rest of the facility in gameplay. BGM doesn’t loop, though I’m not sure if it’s just on my end. Main plot is also very flimsy and there’s not much world building, infodumps or anything like that to get you invested in the scifi setting, while major twists aren’t really twists because the game often spoils them by showing scenes from other characters’ perspectives beforehand, or they're just something you've seen before in other titles. It’s all very basic, essentially everything non-gameplay is on par with something you'd download on a whim from ふりーむ as well, and even saying that is insulting the better games available there. And as I mentioned, the game is also fairly short. In short, everything that doesn't directly serve the simple gameplay and exploration is complete trash.

Overall I got my share of enjoyment out of Innocent Eye's, but if I were to recommend the game to someone I’d warn them to keep their expectations about the plot and characters very, very low. If nothing else, it's a weird curiosity considering it's made by early Unison Shift. If I was one of the people who paid 8800 yen for this I’d be pretty fucking livid though.

Well that might've been wildly overstating it, but I wanted to stress that I actually began to enjoy the game much more after starting to view it as a neat little point'n'click adventure rather than comparing it to regular VNs, especially to numerous games with similar but much more fleshed out setting with trapped characters. If the writing was given more care and the game overall had more volume this could've been a real hidden gem. I have a soft spot for gameplay eroge, and the game manages to do it without being needlessly obtuse or ending up being an arbitrary flag hunt, so there never was a part where I was absolutely stumped, nor did it feel that the game part was getting in the way of the story or the other way around.

Huge thanks to the anon who originally uploaded the game and its OST ages ago. His links in the archives are apparently dead now, so it's just pure luck I also happened to have these downloaded from way back then when someone else asked for an upload. There's also an official patch for the game still available on Unison Shift's support page, though in my case it didn't seem to alleviate the random crashes.

When eroge were at their prime time, people didn't expect that. It would've been weird with all the wonky art and the few scenes being there also being so very very short.

After the prompt doesn't go through she says that she didn't hear me and wants me to speak louder . Is there a way to write those words "louder" in japanese ? Maybe is that

don't know about the guy's expectations but to be honest now this is 2019 with much more attractive heroines being available and just 1 or 2 scenes and HCGs with each heroine(there's just 4 of em) in a 60h or something eroge is cutting corners a little if you ask me.
wouldn't really mention it if I ever did a review tho

Most non-nukige routes don't need more than 2 H-scenes, one to push the relationship forward and a second to accompany the third act climax or epilogue. Any extra ones just bog down the pacing and the scenes structured around them feel like a pointless side mission in a bad RPG; they should be limited to extra scenes viewable from the menu.

That's absolutely terrible. The entire point of eroge is porn with context, because that's what makes it better. Might as well go read a random doujin instead of including unlockable hcg.

"Pointless side missions" is what makes RPGs good.

Based on looks alone I assume Otome is best girl? Because I just got a spoiler from the 3rd game that she's official winner of the 2nd?

Because that might scub the awful taste in my mouth from the horrible choice shit for brains Junichi made in the first game. I just want to confirm whether she is in fact best girl, and whether she is in fact official winner.

But there is no context. They are randomly popping up, without making any sense. May as well have them in the extra content. Then at least you get them, when you want them.

I think he doesn't mean actually optional content, because that would be closer to putting ero into the extra menu. He's probably talking about the main story doing random shit that has no relevance for anything once in a while, probably involving backtracking for a 5 minute cutscene or whatever.

Rpgs benefit of optional content, but filler in the mainstory is... well. Depends on what you care about. In my opinion Rpgs are best played for the gameplay, so as long as that isn't involving recycling, it's okay.

You're acting as if h-scenes never have any context at all, they're still set at some point during the actual route and something has to happen to lead to them, that's already better that selecting them from a menu and needing to jump around time in the route or having them set during an epilogue.
Also, the scenes themselves can be part of the plot, saying that there should only be 2 h-scenes with the specific aim of pushing the relationship forward or accompanying the third act is really limiting when there are plenty of games out there that have managed to make good use of them.

>> No.22439765

I'm not just acting as if it is like that. It IS like that most of the time. At some random point the characters are just like "btw I'm horny" and do it. Which, to be fair, isn't that weird. Unless it's in a completely unfitting situation killing the pace. Not like you plan this 3 weeks in advance. Makes it very easy to remove though, without losing a single thing.

Also btw., I'm not the guy who said there should be only 2 h-scenes. All of that heavily depends on what kind of game you are playing anyway.
But I do believe there's room for games that do that, and games that include ero much more into what's happening, usually leading to a rather large amount of scenes, without being quite a nukige yet. (Think a lot of Astronauts games, Rance and whatnot) However personally I don't like those games, that really only have unfitting throwaway scenes possibly killing the flow, that are very obviously just there because of a dumb ero quota every route has to fulfill. That's poison. Standard quotas are garbage. I'd rather have the "not enough scenes", that didn't fit, in the extra menu. 5 minutes of "setting up" can be in those as well, if that's so important. More isn't happening in the "main story" either.

She is at least one of the best girls in the 2nd. And, yes, she is the winner.
