alrighty owo so far I've been surfing around
http://www.hangame.co.jp/
I made an account and you get a flash avatar...but If you don't use yen to purchase items such as clothing for your avatar I'm afraid you will walk around in the basic stuff you start off with...which is nothing.
as for the games..it reminds me of higher quality face book games, simple and they pass the time by.
you even get to manage a little pet on your profile page.

in short..if you can read Japanese yo uwill probably enjoy it 100x more then I am
( as I ish still a noob after 1.5 years of learning Japanese) *cough cough*

um just use Chrome for a browser and it will translate most of the web pages..
but not the flash video/game things..as you probably know.

that's about it for now...

I'm also playing Mabinogi on Alexina server as Haretekko if you want to add me
<3 loving Mabinogi right now ( i havn't played since last summer >w<)

Hey and as others and I were discussing the night/countdown of Ai [email protected]'s closure, we are forming a team to create a vn/kn or simply just a fan game( really we are speculating the details but as we gather more supporters I hope a clear idea will come about). For certain though is two things, one the fan game needs to replicate our Ai [email protected] experience, both in look and as a place for people like us. Second, we need people. Right now as we organize and gather and spread news among other circles within other websites we are not looking for one specific skill ( although we do need a programmer, muscian, bg,cg, and people of the sort XD) but simply supporters . I don't really have time today but throughout this and next week i'll be trying to gather people who can help make the idea of resurrecting Ai [email protected] a reality.

IF it will be a 2D VN/KN like for example Clannad, then the water gun part could be done

a.)
like how it is in Final Fantasy games
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fo51_rBlvjQ
and in the RPG maker series
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UxJNRcsGb-8
or
b.)
strategically like how it was made in Piece of Wonder

Anyone knows someone who could make animations or at least has video editor/movie maker software and knows how to make good movies?

It would be for the "'movies" like for example the opening after the character creation.

Programming:
For the engine I recommend Ren'py engine, as it is easy to use, free and has a lot of features. This means, that each of the dev team members can obtain the engine without any problems, and use it relatively easily without much programming knowledge.

We can also create a 2D character creation in it with which we could create our characters for the game, like in Ai [email protected] Off course, we need art for it to work, which depends on the artist, the others mentioned. We need different types of male and female hair, clothes, and eyes.

And the chara doll will be also put together from the above mentioned parts, but randomly, like in the original game, of course, there will be only female chara-dolls.

For plot, we should first start with the original Ai [email protected] story. And if that's done and is a success and all, we still can make expansions to it with further story.

I also would like to put the daily 1000D npc into the game, and the serial lady. The serial lady could give us special things, if the player has the right serial. For example, tools, cloths, skills, food, exp, potions, buffs, etc.

Also the baitos would be in it too.

Writing:
For the authenticity of the visual novel, we will use the following five things:
- Screenshots from the game
- Our memories and experiences of the game
- The English and Japanese wiki of the game
- Videos from the game
- The Manga of the game

As in the game, in the fan game too, you will be able to choose which island you want to live on, and what kind of character your chara-doll should have. It really did effect the game, because the text and behaviors of the people where different. So I thought that each character type would be written by different writers. For example, the maiden path will be written by me. Off course the main plotline which is the same in all three paths, will be done by the writers together.

As far as I remember, there were 3 characteristic you could choose from after you choose your island:
- Tsundere (Considering from the manga and the Japanese wiki, but if others remember better/choose this path, feel free to correct me.)
- Maiden (I chosen it back then and still have my booklet with the translation of it, since back than I didn’t know of AGTH yet, and wrote the Japanese characters out into the booklet and then looked the characters and their meanings up on the net. I probably will be writing this path.)
- Lively (Considering the Japanese wiki, but if others remember better/choose this path, feel free to correct me.)

Translation:
It will be mainly in English, but if Kanmuri and zz wants, they can translate it to Japanese, and any other language they know.

Art:
- Music & SFX: Will most likely be provided by me. No, I don’t mean that I will make it, I just mean, that I can get music, which is legal, and is made for game makers to use for their games.
- Character Art, BG, CG: This will be done by the already mentioned artist.
- Voice Acting: VA will most likely be English, not Japanese. Az zz already knows, I have already started searching for possible actors, and had a very good start.

Game title:
We’re awaiting suggestions for the title. The best will be chosen as the game’s title. The person, with the chosen title, and maybe one, or two other good title recommenders will receive a serial when the game is finished.

Legal terms:
Of course, it will be a none-commercial project, and we won’t be using any materials from the original game, except for the plot characters (Asakura, Rin, etc.) and the plot itself.
NOTE:
- No, the character art and the BG, CG art will be original, not ripped from the games or posters etc. Because of this, and since it’s a none-commercial project and also a fan game, it will more or less be legal.
- We could debate somewhat about the legal terms of the plot as yes; we’re trying to make the same plot they already did and licensed, but let us be reasonable. 1st of all, neither of the us has the original script of the game, so even if we wanted to write it 100% exact the same as it was in the original, we couldn’t. 2nd, I don’t think that any of us has such a good memory that he or she knows each and every word of the script. Nor do I think that any of us played all 3 character types. Each of us played only 1 type and not all of us where lucky enough to even finish that 1 path.



More or less I wrote down everything I wanted, if I forgot something, I’ll make up for it when I remember what I forgot. If any of you have any questions, comments or suggestions, feel free to write it.

ooooo~ love the proposal~~~~
we should get it going~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

for programming, i'll leave it to you guys, cause i knew little :P
(i would, however, try to understand that engine as much as i could to help)

i think dailies and baitos could work, but for serials... because we aren't linking with any companies (i presume), it would be hard to give out serials from time to time (unless they are like prizes awarded like achieving a time limit of a mission or so)

for writing, i would try my best to translate the jap wiki, and probably the whole game to jap and chinese(?)

i didn't take a lot of screenshots (i do think some have a lot :P), yet i could recall most of the maps by memory... i could draw back the position of most items in all 4 maps and scan them back, but further work would be required by our artists thx~

if i recalled correctly... there were 2 only... lively and maiden... tsundere was a part of the story line... (yet you could create one :))
however, depending on which island is chosen, the charadoll's face would change to 1 of either 2 characters from that island:

da capo: lively - asakura; maiden - yumu
shuffle: lively - kaede; maiden - nerine
clannad: lively - kyou; maiden - nagisa

mine was maiden (nagisa), yet i could help on those scripts as well :)

good to hear that VA's are going and for music... i could try (if possible) to extract the ones used in the game for arrangement

haha...game title... i'll need to think on that one, as ai [email protected] was a pretty nice one for the original game... anyone else?

as long as it is original & non-commercial, it will be fine with legal terms :)
(well, maybe credit some of the characters just to be safe :P)

agree, i can't finish mine... (left the 4th series) just keep it similar (based on the titles on jap wiki), but we would add/drop a few :)
