You can run the ubuntu shell thing on Windows and it's probably betterLast modified on 2022-04-04 at 16:43

< report >"Predicting VNs similar to ドキドキ文芸部! Doki Doki Bungeibu!

I can't quite put my finger on it, but something seems a bit off with this lol. Also School Days listed twice. Also happened here with Himawari:

< report >VNs showing up twice is a bug (having to do with multiple VNs in the DB having the same title) and I may or may not try to fix it fixed it

Also note that when we say “similar” here we mean “people who read and enjoyed DDLC also read and enjoy these VNs” so having things like Totono and euphoria there is actually probably correctLast modified on 2022-04-05 at 02:25

Yes, the model seems to have notions of translated/untranslated into English. So you get things like

Which all have English translations I believe (they are only voting on English language VNs)

This extends to the "similar VNs" feature to an extent:

Predicting VNs similar to Ore-tachi ni Tsubasa wa Nai ―――under the innocent sky., 俺たちに翼はない ―――under the innocent sky. Ore-tachi ni Tsubasa wa Nai ―――under the innocent sky.

If you input an untranslated VN you are likely to be recommended other untranslated VNs

Integration into VNDB as an official feature whenLast modified on 2022-04-05 at 06:46

< report >#14 it should've been thought out like this from the start. of course founded similarities and recommendations will be much more practical when made by people not an algorithm lol

< report >Human recommendations aren't practical because it's impractical for individuals to have read enough VNs to give truly informed opinions. It's easy to give trivial recommendations like "hurr if you like Baldr Sky Dive2 I think you'd also like Baldr Sky Dive1" and "If you like CLANNAD you'd also like Kanon", it's much harder for a human to say "if you liked Ore-tachi ni Tsubasa wa Nai ―――under the innocent sky. you might be interested in Harumade, Kururu." especially as each only has a few hundred votes on VNDB. The importance of the GAMBS RECOMMENDATION ENGINE only increases when needing recommendations based off of even more niche VNs

< report >There is something I wanted to ask: How does the algorithm consider user votes when it's not a full number? (for example when someone votes 7.8 or 6.4) Are they rounded up/down, truncated or does it take the whole number?Last modified on 2022-04-06 at 04:53

< report >5 weeks later, I don't consider this a necro.

I've played with the script a bit on Ubuntu. I like the intent, ambition, and efficiency.

EDIT EDIT: It complained about missing a file called "users" that was not mentioned in documentation. Turns out that file is in the database dumps, so someone should document that somewhere.

I am happy with the VNs it recommends based on my profile. It knows my perverted tastes (though Rance is a bit strategy-heavy but whatever).

As for VN-based recommendations, I don't find these generic miko/shrine/girls-school games to be particularly relevant to the one I fed it:

Predicting VNs similar to Houkago ☆ Eroge Bu! ~Eroge Seisaku no Tame Onna no Ko to Ecchi Shimakuri na Mainichi~
