< report >#1281, #1283 Kazoku's translation is actually made up though. If you compare with the JP text you'll see that it is the case (It's even worse than C+C) and not some Gambs rambling.

It's fine if you remove it, but people should be made aware of TLs that are basically fanfic/worse than MTL? and completely innacurate (This and Ixrec stuff)

< report >r98873.9 < should we care about fantlers' feelings? Apparently there is bad blood involved and they want to pretend they are not related. I don't intend to pursue coz I don't care about their fantl. Just want to know in case something like that happens to some English fantl...
Who has ballz big enough to link GR Team as being spawned from Epic Eagle Team? :D

< report >Well, if I understood it correctly, Epic Eagle Team have no intention to publish this translation. If so, then I see no harm in removing it from credits. All translators can be credited as staff. Maybe we should just mention Epic Eagle Team in the notes, for historical purposes.

< report >I guess that in this specific case, GR Team is the result of the division and a relation between the two teams is enough with maybe a note if someone cares enough to write one. I didn't check GR Team and thought it was a pre-existing team that was taking credit because they enlisted the secessionists.

< report >Nemuribuka Maruri 's Engages in (Sexual) > Tentacle Rape trait - The character gets molested by tentacles, so obviously Engages in (Sexual) > Non-consensual Sex with Tentacles should be used. But wait, there's one more point - there's no penetration. Apparently tentacle rape trait's parent trait Engages in (Sexual) > Rape says 'This trait is intended for rape scenes that involve penetration', should the same to be assumed for all child traits and related traits too? Then Engages in (Sexual) > Non-consensual Sex with Tentacles doesn't apply to this case. Is there a fitting trait for this case?

< report >Since the trait explanation says 'This includes groping' it sounds about right.

< report >The Steam release of True Love ~Jun'ai Monogatari~ includes a Ren'py port of the game (accessible via a public beta branch), which in addition to changing the engine also adds additional translations. My initial inclination was to add a separate release specifically for the Ren'py version and then cross-reference the original and the new entries. But as the Ren'py port is bundled with the original release (on Steam at least) and not actually a separate release, I wasn't sure if that was the proper thing to do. The other alternative I see is adding a new Steam release (justified by the additional languages) that includes a note about the two different versions of the game included.Last modified on 2022-11-28 at 19:50

< report >So, there's this character who introduces herself as her older sister at the beginning of the VN to deceive the protagonist. But on her VNDB page, her real name is written so anyone looking at the page before reading the game would be spoiled.

Is there a way to edit it in a way which makes sense?Last modified on 2022-11-30 at 05:03

< report >The name that's used on the official website should be the character name, and if the real name is different then it would be put with spoiler tags in the description. Or wait for implementation of spoiler names and aliases. Any day now.Last modified on 2022-11-30 at 06:07

< report >Okay, I didn't think of checking the official website.
Result was not what I expected. The character name written on the website is just [Surname]. No [First Name] present, so we have no idea which girl it is, just based on the website.

< report >I really doubt there's just a list of family names with no descriptions or anything to accompany it. But what about character introduction on store pages?

< report >What I basically want to say is: even the official website hides her real [First Name] and only uses [Surname] but on VNDB, it is spoiled.

Description itself is just plain and in no way, spoils the identity beyond her personality.

< report >Then you could only write her last name in the name field and write her full name in the description under a spoiler tag. I think I've seen that a few times, when the real name is a spoiler.

< report >I don't sure if I to write this particular thread, but I'll write nevertheless.

Can we really count that Daiteikoku length vote as reliable one, as it is only one route (there are much more routes and side content of them) of almost MTL release? Should not it be marked as "Not Count" vote?

< report >if a language release will be added to an existing release, should i make a new release, or can i just add new language to the existing release?

(trad ch. and korean will be added to existing japanese app of HEAVEN BURNS RED in 2023)

< report >The language addition is considered a major update and should have a separate release entry.

< report >What was the stance with instances of characters where only the sprite art is different? For example Tennouji Nae, I don't see any other difference between that and the original S;G character entry than the sprite. It seems a bit silly to have S;G 0 its own character entries (which have only sprite difference), when Fatamoru characters don't have their own separate entries in Another Episodes where it could actually be appropriate.Last modified on 2022-12-10 at 00:44

< report >My personal stance is that different character art alone does not justify a separate instance, if it's the exact same character.

< report >A question about this edit. I know it's not actually stated in the guidelines but I thought it was generally agreed that original covers should be used if possible.

< report >I am 100% behind you as it pisses me off to see covers from remakes. However, I know there is no consensus and I am probably not in the majority.
Only thing I am sure is that you can revert editors who decide to update for the sake of updating if the current cover is fine, just like screenshots, to prevent edit wars over which one is better. In your case, you are the one who updated in the first place, while the cover now is cropped and doesn't fit vndb's layout. Just saying.

Soon, one cover per release and the ability to choose which one to represent VN.

< report >I wonder if it's possible to bulk add releases. It seems that nobody noticed DMM GAMES Store, while 3000+ Android VNs are sold there. I have added a few of them manually, but it feels like an impossible task to add all of them one by one.

What I'm doing, is basically copying an existing Windows release, changing the basic information (title, platform, release date, etc.), and add a note that states the release is available on DMM GAMES Store, which I believe can be done by a bot or script too.

I tried to use Wireshark to get some raw JSON datas, which could be useful, here's one of them: link
