Disappointing about the no H-bit, but there are patches to make everyone go out in Lingere, makes it abit silly, but eh.

I hear there is ALOT of Ecchi in this, which is good.

Listen, I dunno why, but Tsukihime, Fate Stay Night, Utware, ect, while ALL great novels / names I've enjoyed, without the sex? It feels like it's just not complete. I dunno why. I didn't even really like the sex scenes in some of them. I just kinda like the feeling I'm WORKING towards it.

They're major plot features. It's a bit hard to remove them without coming up with some ridiculous excuse which invalidates the original canon. Like... how to transfer mana when he can't do it...

Well some Visual Novels do have that tendancy to have it where it can make sense without having any ero ero scenes though. It's trying to find a way to make it work properly where it can make sense either way.

Never the less some people rather would play to get the certain gril that the anime didn't go with.

Meh.... Who would really do that? I want a story, dammit!
Anyway, if it has no h-scenes it's not a plus nor a minus, it's the same. It just means I may not laugh at those scenes...

Heh, after you play it, you will probably not care anymore. It has a great story. Not only that, I looked at the best selling games in Japan a few months back and Chaos;HEAd was the second in the list. I really think only good games can get that high.

Eh, Halo sold pretty well and ranked high, so I don't think Rankings exactly show good games. Although I do agree, this game looks awesome, and it's almost fully translated and I will surely play it when it is.

Ah so basically it's 100% translated, but in the editing phase now am I correct?

Well if this game is pretty good I'll give it a shot never the less since it looks rather fun to play though.

Would probably be more correct to say it's already been edited and playtested but massive bugfixing and re-insertion remains (because the engine is retarded). Though I think it's pretty much fixed by now.

There is not much I can say to express my interest and gratitude, so I'll just say thanks.

Well yeah, but I wanna play when all the little things are fixed. I'd really hate to play this and have a random crash there, or there, especially considering what I've been told of the "Skip" option.

Seriously, whose idea was it to make a skip option like that? Frustrating ~ Most VN's these days have the proper skip Engine...weird they didn't do it for this one, too.

See, even if it's 100% translated, I want to make sure everything's juuuuuuuuuuust right. Why rush it? Basically.

Good Job though, you translated this game really, really, damn fast. I'm very impressed. A VN released and fan translated in the same year? I've never heard of such a thing, but it may have happened before.

QFT!

*Still mad at buying that piece of shit called Halo 3*

As to your other comment i kind of agree with you, to some extent... I don't think sex needs to be there, but many a time it's just something that will happen. Arcueid's scene comes to my mind with this statement. Of course, some others scenes are just forced.

Anyway, i will try this one as soon as possible.

Yeh well like I said the engine is retarded, been wondering about the same. It's a major problem on replaying the game as well, as basically you can't just skip and hit the delusion triggers because they flash by sometimes in less than a second. If you skip read text, you will miss most if not all delusion triggers on replaying even if you try to pay attention. If on the other hand you try to play with max speed automode, you will end up skipping unread text as well even if you can spot the triggers. Loss-loss. The only sane way to replay the game is by staring at a walkthrough showing all the delusion triggers and just interrupt skip when you get to those scenes.
It's such a patchwork really, nitro+ needs some better coders.

For those who care and aren't checking the updates.
Re: Release date
jerieljan on Nov 18, 2008 @ 01:28am UTC

I feel like constantly updating the home page on this site now.

There's progress.
From what I can see in our most recent snapshots, it's halfway done. (Chapters 1-6 are in a neater condition now.)

Most recent updates were: Chapter 4 & 6 getting edited at my side, Chapter 5 and Route A end at TinFoil's)

I have yet to hear updates on our image editor guys. The images are all translated although it's just a bit "dirty" in some parts; especially images that have scanlines in them.

I don't think it's a miracle, they're pretty fast and alot of it's done, really only the cleanup work is done. Maybe they'll wait and release it ON or the night before Christmas...either would be nice.

That'll be the best Christmas ever for me if they did something like that now.
