Forums updated but not going anywhere

Hello all! A few of you have noticed that the forums look significantly different than they did a few days ago. Unfortunately phpBB (the software that runs the forums) had an update, and this broke our custom theme. So, for now, we're on the default. PyTom has updated the site to make sure that it i...

Re: Ask!

Does Hanako know any english? (Sorry for all the hanako questions) I would say only the basics (she is in school after all) Just to add my two cents' worth: English is now a compulsory foreign language for Japanese students starting around age 10. My mother taught EFL in a Japanese school for more ...

Probably. I think everyone swears at some point.

I've only ever known one person who didn't swear, and even then we got her to say "shit" once.

Then again there isn't that much swearing in Japan to begin with so it's a bit of a hard one

Re: Ask!

Hey cpu_crud, have you ever had writer's block? if so, how do you go about getting passed it? Yes, occasionally. I think that it is just part of the creative process. In the last 6 months or so I've tried to write every day although it's not always possible (plus I'm editing now so that's a bit of ...

Re: Ask!

Did anyone of you actually read Life of Pi before you dropped the reference in the VN? Because I recently came across some excerpts, and somehow I think Hanako might not be a fan of the graphic violence in there... Yes, I was reading it at the time. I wouldn't say it was overly violent. And there i...

Re: Ask!

Do you think Hanako ever plays any video games? I'm not really sure about that. I would default to "yes" but something makes me think that she might not be overly into them. It was probably a bit early to be dealing with mobile games in force, so that leaves PC-based games (I don't see her owning a...

Re: Ask!

Since Hanako has a cell phone, how might she pay for service or for the basic necessities of life such as bills and food while being in high school? I can't remember what we decided on, but we had some theories like her aunt or something paying for it, or maybe some kind of endowment from the schoo...

Does it change from time to time? :P

Re: Ask!

That's kind of harsh, at least he didn't write such a horrible route. He might just have been misled to defend it. Ok. Deep breaths. Calm blue oceans. I've resisted answering these comments for some time, however I feel like there are some things that need to be said here. Before I start, I'd like ...

I should know this...

What I'm thinking is "Music without edges" - in that nothing too jumpy. So I'm thinking classical, soft rock, and probably also generic J-pop (low energy).

Re: Ask!

It would be nice, Crud, to see official posts about different projects on the 4LS/KS blog. I'm thinking about doing an updated "Stalkers Guide" (after asking around) so I'll pass that to Aura for posting. I was also thinking it might be nice to have the "official" 4Ls blog be more of an aggregator ...

Re: Ask!

Can you elaborate on what you mean by "grid concept" and what the alternative would have been? A static novel? Le sigh. I originally thought that there could be 5 "rows" in Act 1 In each row you would meet one girl (column). So there would be 25 "intro" scenes. But the problem is that you needed to...
