< report >Hi minasan!

I wanted to get started reading JP-only VNs. I have the intention of building a Windows 7 PC dedicated to play these amazing games that VNs are. But you know, Win 7 being insecure and all.

It is possible to follow this guide in a offline machine or do you need connection to the Internet?! kowaii kowaii

Srry for the chunni! I'm kinda excited with the possibility of reading all these amazing VNs.

Yours truly

< report >If you need just hooking and dictionary look-up, then that should be no problem - most of the hookers and parsers should work offline. For example sometimes when on vacation I've been reading VNs on my laptop using AGTH or Textractor paired with Chiitrans, and it worked fine without any internet connection.
But if you want to also use machine translation from Google or Deepl, then that works only online.Last modified on 2021-12-24 at 10:36

< report >I prefer using Rikaichan/Rikaichamp/Rikaisama instead of Chiitrans for offline reading, Chiitrans doesn't always split words correctly. link

< report >Don't think so. I tried all of the built in Magpie settings and another program that forces a window to always overlay and those didn't work. Maybe someone who is more knowledgeable than me can help. Would be useful I'd think
