< report >The game was released in an unplayable state and it took the devs months to patch it. Here's the direct link to the patch or the full post with it on the dev blog.

I'm pretty sure this explains a lot of ~3 votes on this game, but who knows.

< report >What is the patch even for? I remember attempting to play this game but ran into installation problems and after I finally installed it, the game was unhookable and I gave up.

< report >Unfortunately it is unhookable at the end of the day (and it was one of my first untranslated VNs so reading it got pretty slow, but was absolutely worth it!), but the patch fixes constant crashing and missing BGM issues. Also fixes the problems with connection between voice and lines.

I've only tried hooking it with ITH which is outdated now, maybe something else will work? It sees the thread and "hooks" it, but doesn't put out any actual text.Last modified on 2017-02-22 at 19:34

< report >Is this game supposed to be very sad? I might attempt to play it. Also mind giving me some details about the relationship between the protag and his twin?

< report >It's a very serious game with plenty of sadness. You might not really feel it from the common route though. The protag and his twin lived in different towns for as long as they can remember and she's come to his town for the first time. They get along and live in the same house. That's about as much as I can say.Last modified on 2017-02-23 at 03:19

< report >I actually found a custom exe + game file on hongfire which automatically hooks the game's text to a clipboard. I use that + chiitranslite to read the hooked text.Last modified on 2017-08-20 at 20:51

< report >Finding the required files to get text hooking to work was annoying, so here's some reuploads. First the modified game exe: link
Second, the modified game file: link
Credits to 水崎来夢 for the exe file and freemen for the updated script file.

First install the game, but don't install any of the tokuten patches (or at least apparently they don't work if it's not version 1.20 anyway?.
Then install the 3.01a patch.
After that, replace the .exe file in your harukana folder with the text hooking exe.
Then replace o2.js, which is in the subfolder /game/engine/, with the provided o2.js (the zip with the modified exe also contains a modified o2.js, but it is outdated and only works on patch version 1.20).

There will be no need to use any text hooking program as the text will be copied to clipboard automatically when using the text hooking exe. It'll also show up in the window title though so have fun with that.

Note that I only tested this with a few lines at the start and it may break catastrophically later. I hope not!Last modified on 2017-12-18 at 06:35

< report >After a few hours of testing and 4 reinstalls, I've found how to make the tokutens work in harmony with the patched game:

1) Install the game
2) Apply Naked Ribbon
3) Apply 3.01a (also known as 300a)
4) Apply Dream of Human

These features only work after reaching 100% completion, so... not very useful. But you can get the 100% save from seiya-saiga (walkthrough contains spoilers) if you want to play around with it without finishing the game. Please don't do this, the story is very good and it's one of my favorites (as you can see in my review).

What it basically does is allow the player to modify the sprites of the heroines + Asahi and Nagisa. Options: glasses, animal ears, naked ribbon, swimwear, naked with a couple of settings for what will cover the private bits, if anything (update: it looks like you can almost never see anything below the waist due to the way sprites are positioned on screen). Kokone has a couple of extras such as a maid outfit, while the selection for non-heroines is more limited.

I've tested it by leaving the game on skip until 100% clear and it didn't crash or have any other issues, which means the required fixes remain active with this method.

I have not tested it with zaka's hooking solution, but it probably works. Probably. After all, these tokutens simply unlock a feature that's already present in the game upon installation, as you can discover by looking through the images folder.

Fun fact: the clean (unplayable) version of the game has a standard "Skip Read Only" feature, but 3.01a removes it. Guess it broke the game in some way so they decided to get rid of it. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯Last modified on 2021-04-15 at 15:04
