Where were the pictures of dormitories and school taken? Are they photos of dev's rooms? ;)

EDIT:
Man, it's hard to find posts in huge threads. Anyway, question to Cpl_Crud (hope he was the writer, that post was from 2007). I just finished Hanako's path. I didn't do the bad ending. It'd be heart breaking .... I am wondering though. Why is Hanako's path shorter than others? Was it planned like that? There wasn't enough ideas to push the story further? It feels like it's cut somewhere before the end and all that is missing is "To Be Continued".

Hey aura I'm back. :3 So I have a question for any of devs if they would be willing to answer it.
When you made that April fools joke where you could get together with some of the other side characters, did you actually code it? Because like I'm pretty sure the public (mostly me :() would really enjoy that considering the mass amount of fanfics getting our hopes up.

No. That would've been a lot of work for absolutely nothing?

Oh. Well I guess I'll just go and cry in my corner now.

In "Scars" (Hanako Act 4), the last line of the "bad" ending is
Not just the close of a single visit, but the close of something more.
I didn't know if this meant the closing of Hanako and Hisao's relationship ('more' means the great potential for Hanako's recovery through her relationship with Hisao), or the closing of Hanako to the whole world and the final, irrecoverable reaffirmation of her brokenness?

Question for Aura (or any dev I gues it doesn't really matter)
However, I would like to say thanks for making this game, I'm sure you guys have heard it countless times but regardless, thanks.

Anyway, I don't know if this has been asked or answered anywhere, and I also don't know if it's a taboo topic or not, but here goes.
I've heard that in the game files there is a folder called rin_trueend which contains the art of when Rin and Hisao are in the rain during her neutral ending

I know that no ending is more canonical than another, I was just wondering why it is named this way. Although I may be just over analyzing a potentially meaningless label.

EDIT: Wow I completely overlooked the answer to this, as it was posted right above me. Epic face palm.
Sorry

When one of the main girls appears in a path other than their own, would the writer of said girl have anything to do with the dialogue?

It's open to interpretation. There's no right answer.

Varies, but at the very least the writer always checks that everything is okay. We all are competent enough to acceptably emulate each others' characters, but sometimes we asked for help from others. Kenji and Rin were traditionally the most challenging to "other" writers.

Speaking of Kenji, who wrote his dialogues? :lol:

Obviously the feminist conspirators. They're trying to make us laugh about such a grave matter! -.-

Like most of 4LS, he doesn't hang out on the public IRC channel and posts on the public forums only rarely.

Alright, so sorry about being confusing about my earlier question about the april fools joke about the side characters. Let me restate it: Did you ever consider putting the side characters into the main story so that they would have a bigger role?
