Help & Recommendations - Post Questions Here

Post by FullArmageddon on Wed Jul 18, 2012 11:38 am

Need someone to recommend you a visual novel? Just tell us what you want (focus on story, ecchi, or a balance between the two?) and we'll try to help you out.

Need help installing a visual novel? Ask here.
(I'll eventually post a basic tutorial)

If you have any other questions related to visual novels, feel free to post them here.

So I've never played (watched?) a visual novel before and I'm looking for recc's. Something short, not a hentai and if possibly available on the PSP or DS (not entirely important but it would be convenient).

There's Corpse Party for the PSP that you could buy. There's also a bunch that you can get here, but that's only if your PSP can run Homebrew.

Some short, non-hentai VNs I would recommend are:
-Planetarian - Torrent
-Narcissu & Narcissu Side 2nd - Direct Download
(Side 2nd contains both the first and second VN)
-Red Shift - Direct Download
(I haven't read this yet so I'm not sure how good it is)

Hope you find one you like, and let me know if you need any help installing them.

Thanks! Going to start with Planetarian methinks.

Also I should have added that I do have CFW on my PSP.

Something that is similar to Corpse Party. Also looking from something that sci-fi with a great story line.

OK, so I probably won't be able to post directions today since I have to reinstall my OS and all programs.

OK, I finally got around to writing some instructions on how to install Planetarian. I'm going to assume you have Windows 7 for these instructions. If not, just let me know.

0.) Read step 12 below. This might work without completing step 12 but if it doesn't then you might have to start over (or you might not). It's up to you if you want to try it without completing step 12, you don't really risk anything other than possibly wasting 10 minutes. Unfortunately, I can't tell you if it will work without completing step 12 since my computer is already in Japanese locale and I don't want to switch it back to English.

1.) Right click sazanami-gothic and select Install (seems you've already done that from your screen shot)

2.) If you still have the VN installed, browse to the directory, double click uninst and uninstall the english patch, then go back to the Program Files directory and delete the entire planetarian directory.

3.) Download AppLocale but do NOT install it yet: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=13209

4.) Turn off UAC (if you don't already have it off). AppLocale will not work properly with it on. Go to:
Start > click your account icon/picture at the very top right of the Start menu > Change User Account Control Settings > Slide the bar to "Never notify" at the bottom > OK

5.) Install AppLocale

6.) Once installed, start AppLocale, click Next, make sure "launch an application" is selected, click Browse, browse to and double click the installer Planetarian (unvoiced) and hit Next, for Language of the application scroll to the bottom and select Japanese (this one) and click Next, then click Finish.

7.) The installer should pop up, hit the Next (N)> button. Now I assume you have a 64-bit OS, so hit the browse button with the (R) and select Program Files (x86) since this is a 32-bit program. If you don't have the folder with (x86) then just leave the default. Hit Next twice, it will install, then hit finish. Once it's done a few windows will pop up, just exit them all.

8.) Install the English patch, make sure the destination folder is the same as where it's installed.

9.) Launch AppLocale again, click Next, make sure "launch an application" is selected, click Browse, browse to the game directory and select Start (NOT Start.jp), for Language of the application scroll to the bottom and select Japanese (this one) and click Next, then click Finish. You will have to do this every time you play the game.

10.) Click Play, it will launch in full screen, just hit Alt + Enter to exit full screen. Once you get through the intro, right click the screen and select Font Option, then select Sazanami Gothic and hit OK. If the font is still gibberish or not formatted correctly then see the note below.

11.) If you want voices (which I recommend), download this. Install instructions are included.

Remember, you need to launch the VN with AppLocale (step 9) each time you play it.

IF THE ABOVE DOES NOT WORK, READ THIS

12.) You may or may not need to change your system locale to Japanese. Most VNs work without doing this but some do not. It doesn't take long to do but it will probably require you to restart the computer. This will not effect any programs and you probably won't notice the change. To do this, go to:
Start > Control Panel > under Clock, Language, and Region click Change keyboards or other input methods
~Under the Keyboard and Languages tab click Change Keyboards, click Add, expand Japanese (Japan), expand Keyboard, check Japanese and Microsoft IME, hit OK, click Apply, click OK
~Under the Location tab select Japan
~MOST IMPORTANT - under the Administrative tab > Change system locale > select Japanese (Japan) > OK > OK - restart if prompted.
Repeat step 9 and everything should now work.
If it does not work, you need to repeat steps 2, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11

Same as you. All you have to do is extract the game, and then extract the voice patch .rar's into the game directory (replacing the ones in there) which will make the games folder size 1.90GB, and run the application in the folder. No install required, which is nice.

I can start tonight.

Seems like the fan translation died about three years ago. At this point, I doubt it will get an English translation, but it's not impossible.
