Gratz on ver. 3

Post by Bara » Fri May 14, 2010 8:26 pm

I saw on the Dev Blog today that KS Act 1 ver. 3 is out now and I'm dutifully downloading the torrent to play and seed all the versions. (I have to see my new Emi sprites.) :mrgreen:
Since the new version has the Japanese translation it will be interesting to see the reaction from them. I'll bet the things they find different will be much different then what English language players keyed off of. (Except for the girls; if they don't love each and every one of them they are nutz.) :mrgreen:

They say it's not recommended for people who have already finished v.2, but you can bet I'm going through the whole thing again. Maybe even in moon runes just for the hell of it, even though I can read like five kanji.

Gah, I never notice the dev blog updates until I stumble across them here...

I'll have to DL it later and get a feel for the new sprites.

Will the team be keeping old versions available for archival reasons? Whenever freeware games I play are updated, I keep the old versions. Many a time, I'm glad I have.

Also, this is a bit off topic, but did anyone else notice the capacity in the message inbox/outbox/stored folders can now hold 999 messages instead of 50? Or am I just going crazy?

Hoping it's the latter one. I archive all my messages and I've had to keep deleting messages as it hits capacity.

I don't have anything to do, so I might as well play it. I never went through the Emi path properly anyway.

Did they have the Yuuko sprite change in this version? Otherwise I might not play through it again. I'm just focusing on the Rin path so I can write the next chapter in my fic series.

Indeed they did. It seems like they wanted to get act 1 pretty much to the same state it will be in the final game.

Also... did Molly always have robot legs?? :shock:

There's other miscellaneous bells and whistles updates, too, like the new 4ls splash movie, which blew me away the first time I saw it (it's just flashy, but oh so much flashier than the old one). Plus, pimmy did the new title card for Act 1. Finally, keep an ear out for the rerendered tracks. They're really cool.

Personally, I love what's been done with Shizune's and Nurse's themes. The Student Council's screechy faux-violin always bugged me when I first heard it, but I grew accustomed to it as it wasn't as jarring in-game. However, now that it's been changed to a woodwind(?) part, it's absolutely gorgeous! There's a false note at the end of the melody phrase that throws me off, though. As for the Nurse's theme, more trumpet and a clearer bassline = win. There's also a new track after you leave the Nurse's office whose title I haven't checked yet that I also really like. All-in-all, I'm glad I'm replaying the game after downloading this version and I'm gonna ride my friends hard to play KS over the summer with this release.
