< report >Can you undelete the characters from Mahou Shoujo Shoumou Sensen - DeadΩAegis like #3678 and #3679 pointed out? I thought any mahou shoujo VN would be an obvious example of when to use instances, since 1 char can't have multiple images yet.

< report >Kurogane Kaikitan -Kenran Karei- is just a port of Kurogane Kaikitan -Sen'ya Ichiya- but with h-scenes and a new route. It has ~1mb of new content which is quite a lot but I'm still not sure about keeping it as a separate page judging by vndb keeping Higurashi and its ports as one entry and so on.

Can you undelete the characters from Mahou Shoujo Shoumou Sensen - DeadΩAegis like #3678 and #3679 pointed out?
As I understand, they are the same characters - upon transformation only the clothes and the hair changes. They have no secret identity or some such. If they are just soldiers, the transformation is basically getting into their uniform.

In that case I really don't see a reason for instances. Not every Mahou Shoujo game needs instances. They could be useful where the characters have a secret identity or a different personality upon transformation, but I have a hard time justifying it for this game.

Kurogane Kaikitan -Kenran Karei- is just a port of Kurogane Kaikitan -Sen'ya Ichiya- but with h-scenes and a new route. It has ~1mb of new content which is quite a lot
Is all the new content in the new route and the H-scenes, or were the previous routes rewritten to some extent? If it's just an addition of a new long route, then the games should be merged (we have plenty of precedents with multiple new routes added to the previous game). If the existing routes were rewritten, they should probably stay separate.

< report >r78137 can only be gotten by buying the DMM download version (the only donwnload version) so it's not a unique release (it is impossible to have it without the download release). It is no different to the download version and it'd probably be better to have the download version just have browser as an alternative platform, and a note saying you can stream it off DMM too.Last modified on 2021-03-31 at 23:32

< report >Minikle seems to be a duplicate of Minikle, with the website of the former simply being a store-front used by the latter. So if there are no objections, then I'll go ahead and update VNs that list Minikle as staff, so that it can be removed.

< report >r78947 seems to have been made in error. It is the same as r77507, but with iOS support and no publisher. While the original game was available for MacOS, which I am guessing is what the editor meant to add, the English demo is only available for Windows.

< report >[I hope this is the right place, if not, apologies.]

I was wondering whether the two DLCs for Christmas Tina -Utakata Toukei- (I: r75103, r77716, r77233; II: r77687) shouldn't be split out into two separate entries? They are separate stories, IMHO there's merit in being able to track them separately.
Precedent: Highway Blossoms: Next Exit, which is sold as a DLC for Highway Blossoms, and has been converted from a patch release to a head entry.Last modified on 2021-04-03 at 14:28

< report >r77833 is not a distinct product; it's just a bundle at the retailer giving you individual copies of r77832 and r77834. I don't think those are normally kept?

< report >your rotation to pass or something idk (dl here: link) probably doesn't qualify for inclusion: There are no more than a few moments of uninterrupted reading (the entire thing seem to be a couple of minutes long), there is little to no narration, and it is constantly interrupted by "standard" RPGMaker gameplay and random video clips. It's more of an joke RPGMaker game than a joke VN.

< report >wordimagesoundplay most likely not a VN. (If however it qualifies for the DB's Grandfather clause. Then never mind this.)

< report >Zombie Bait was meant to be released for NaNoReNo 2018, and then Halloween 2018 when they failed to meet that deadline, but that never happened and no updates since: link

Cute Demon Crashers! Side B was looking for artists two years ago, and no updates since (on twitter or on Tumblr): link

r53434 as last update was 3 years ago, when it was announced that the team would disband after completing the game, due to the CEO disappearing (link). Both Twitter and Tumblr accounts are dead.Last modified on 2021-04-07 at 06:51

From what I can see, it's a human translation made with VNR. But the fuwanovel post doesn't inspire much confidence in its quality. :/

< report >@3719 - doesn't "made with VNR" equal "MTL"?
AFAIK VNR is just a software that integrates text-hooking and MTL in a single package, or am I missing something?

< report >@vario @beliar the recently announced Kurogane Kaikitan is the same game with an added route, new scenes and H-scenes. So I think it's safe for the moment to keep them merged.

Quote from BugBug news article I found online:

みなとカーニバルが放つ最新作を、本誌独占スクープで巻頭12ページで大特集。2015年にコンシューマで発売されたヒット作『クロガネ回姫譚 -閃夜一夜-』に、シナリオ・さかき傘氏が新ルート&新シーンを追加した本作。PCゲームで18禁になって登場ということで、ヒロインたちに新たに追加された18禁Hシーンも大公開しているぞ♥ 原画・真早氏が描き出す独創的な世界観やスリリングなバトル、そして個性的で魅力的なキャラクターたちに加え、Live2Dでさらに魅力が増した演出にも期待大だ!!

▲まずはメインヒロイン4名をムフフシーンとともに大紹介。新たにヒロインとなった担任・切丸祢々の紹介も最後にあるので注目だ

Doesn't look like the MT was used for the translation, at least from reading the Fuwa post, so I'll leave it alone.

I was wondering whether the two DLCs for Christmas Tina -Utakata Toukei- (I: r75103, r77716, r77233; II: r77687) shouldn't be split out into two separate entries? They are separate stories, IMHO there's merit in being able to track them separately.
Not sure, they were separate before, but I have merged them together. That said, DLCs that add something to the original VN (like additional routes) should go together, while those that are separate stores, like Next Exit could go separately. That said, if they are very short, like an hour or so, I'm not sure if it's worth separating them. Could you provide more info regarding the DLCs?
