< report >if they released the demo, yes, even when they update and withdraw the release from the public. I believe removing them is the same as denying the release's existance.

< report >What's the policy on VNs being "complete" in 0.1 states? link just came out, and I assure you, it's not in a completed state. But VNDB still has it as Complete. And it's not the first time I've seen something like this so I assume it's just how we do things. It's just misleading reallyLast modified on 2021-11-01 at 09:18

< report >Uh, no, it's not how we do things. If it's not complete, it must not be marked as complete. In this case, the "In development" status on itchio is pretty telling. However, I believe that version numbers are not to be trusted for stuff on patreon i.e. 1.0 doesn't equate to complete version.

< report >Should this fan translation really be considered "Freeware" if he's demanding information in exchange?

"you must tell me secrets and details only a true fan of Happobijin would know (three points or over is enough)."

^It's not asking for payment, but still not not exactly free for anyone to access.

< report >#832 Hmm. Maybe not. But then, just how do you define a release? Probably not limited to just being able to follow a link and immediately have a copy. If money is required, then there's some process you have to go through, usually involving proving knowledge of some things, and only then can you get a copy. In that sense, it's the same here; it's just that the thing you're proving knowledge of is not your credit card number or whatever, but something much more unusual.

It's a really weird restriction, though. I don't think I like it very much.

< report >Exactly, it's like how people pay for information; knowledge is a form of currency in a way.

But really, I just don't think weird elitist attitudes like that should be condoned in our already small community.

Has anyone actually tried to get the patch? Even though it's an insane method of distribution, if they actually provide the patch, it can be considered a release. Though if someone can confirm they don't actually give the patch, and it's just a bad taste prank, we'll remove the entry.

can a mod update the cover for Viper-GTS
You can update the cover yourself. No need to involve a mod.
Edit: I see. I cannot access the 'edit' for this Vn either. Seems like a bug. Yorhel, what did you do!?Last modified on 2021-11-06 at 23:00

< report >Keep calm, guys. It's just Yorhel toying with his website. It happens all the time.

As for the Biman release, if it exists, it should be marked freeware. I couldn't convince my fellow mods that a fantl with a DRM asking your for the game's serial number was not freeware, so you won't be able to convince them that licking the boots of a fantler doesn't make it freeware too.

Yes, mouse cursor is very very very annoying. Even more when it's not a customized one.

< report >Everything seems fine now, I edited the ones above.

Question though... Are mouse cursors not allowed? I don't see any mention of them in the screenshot guidelines.

< report >Well, it's not specifically written in the FAQ that mouse cursors shouldn't be in screenshots:
All images have to be screenshots of the game itself, this means that any window borders will have to be removed before uploading. We are neither interested in your heavily modified window borders nor in your awesome AGTH setup.

There are some point and click hybrids where the cursor is part of the game, like one of the screenshots from Kono Yo no Hate de Koi o Utau Shoujo YU-NO; otherwise, mouse cursors shouldn't be in screenshots.

< report >So, if only the heroine is voiced in a nukige, is it fully or partially voiced?

For example, go to Atelier Sakura's page, all their games are basically the same, but half of them are fully voiced and the other half are partially voiced because people don't know what to put...
