< report >Apologies for title being somewhat weird but due to the character limit, I had to write it like that.

There are several VNs that had remakes that changed the art compared to original release (Kono Yo no Hate de Koi o Utau Shoujo YU-NO being the best example).

I've noticed that the characters tab for YU-NO only has old art but I feel like the entry should also have how the new character art looks like as well. If possible, there should be a button which allows you to swap between new art and old one (something like this - link).

< report >Yes, being able to put different photos correspodning to different releases would be neat. Perhaps, if this doesnt get implemented, a way to circumvent this issue could be to create 2 instances of the character, one for before the artstyle change and one for the releases after.

< report >Yes, it's been discussed before but can't find the thread at the moment. Main challenge was how to label the different images. The solution I'm currently thinking of involves using VN editions, but that also involves replacing char<->release relations with char<->edition relations (which I really want to do anyway) and generally expanding the whole editions system. It's all a bit messy and the transition will take some work, but I plan to work on it at some pointâ„¢.

(also doesn't load for me, I assume they have some IP blocks in place)

< report >Why not put the images side by side until changes are made in the database?
