  1. Muv-Luv on Android/iOS

    I have this 8" Winbook, while it is small enough to carry all the time is big enough to read comfortably, you can install Win32 Software (Like Steam and games). I updated it to Windows 10 and use MangaBlaze to read manga on it. Is perfect for reading. Mine is almost 2 years old. An inexpensive tablet like this one will never replace your main computer but you can install the Windows Store versions of Office and open documents and stuff. If you get one, get one with an SD Card slot. Now, you might want to wait a few months for the incoming new generation of devices. There is hope for a "Surface Phone" or a phablet able to run Win32 apps on it.
  2. Just in case you have problems with the 2 downloaded files from backerkit. You will notice these files might have a long name (that was assigned by backerkit). Something like this (note I your files might have a different name, In my case I changed the names a little): uploads_2Fbe975993b18eac69361d7c7aXXXXXXXX_2FMuvLuv_DirectorsCut.zip uploads_2F3bb5a777f6215253030a9d17XXXXXXXX_2FMuvLuv_DirectorsCut.z01 What you have to do is rename these files, to something like: DirectorsCut.zip DirectorsCut.z01 Then you will be able to unzip.
  3. I backed this one, it seems that the "universe" is pretty well build.
  4. Customs/Duty tax

    Yes. Customs change from country to country, so you have yo be careful. In my case can be between 50% and 100%.... You have time now, is a good idea to verify how you can do with your country customs and start saving some money. In most countries when you import something they require a note or invoice to charge you, maybe we can ask for those invoices to be included with a lower value (in the end this is not a purchase but a reward). IF they include something like that, they will help a lot foreign contributors (in some cases we might need also a digital version of such document). This is something you do when importing goods from Japan, with the help of the seller. AGAIN, IS EARLY CHECK WITH CUSTOMS AND MAIL SERVICES. IF YOU HAVE FAMILY (AND IN SOME CASES FRIENDS) IN THE US, SOME COUNTRIES MIGHT ALLOW THEM TO SEND YOU STUFF WITHOUT TAXES (in my country there is a weight and cost limit, but we have something like that, sadly they added taxes last year). Let me use the example of my case:
  5. 300k $ surplus theories

    OK, now I'm intrigued.
  6. Shipping issues to Israel

    In my country to solve similar problems we use a Currier. What I do is ship the items to them (they are located in Miami) and they import to Ecuador (of course the cost is higher). But their service is a lot better and they help with the customs stuff. Maybe you have something like that in Israel.
  7. Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha General Discussion

    I'm glad to see that StrikerS gets some love. Of course I also think that StrikerS deserves a remake, movie, to improve it. The good part of Nanoha is that it evolved and matured, from a young girl in the First season to a young woman in StrikerS.
  8. Are You Saving Up For Customs Tax?

    Talking about this. I my country, Ecuador, what is required to import is a copy of the Invoice (in digital format). So would be great if they provide us with an invoice (better if it has less value, in the end you didn't bought stuff, you supported a project and got stuff as reward). That said, my country has something called "Impuesto a Salida de Divisas". Is a 5% tax every time I use an international credit card to buy something outside Ecuador. I already paid that After that depends. In my case Is better for the the later they ship. Right now this country has something called "Salvaguardias". Is just an import tax. Those will expire in June 2016. Tax can be over 50% (add the price of the courier and you can imagine how expensive it can get). There are some ways around this, but again there are some restrictions. For me is better to wait and have only one shipment with all the stuff (I got the $300 tier, so it is a LOT of stuff) Depending of the situation it might be me actually buy some other stuff in the US, buy a plane ticket to Miami and bring the stuff myself (or ask other people who wants their stuff here)... The only thing that helped was that in Ecuador we use the US dollar as currency, my salary is in USD, so I don't have to worry about exchange.
  9. Which add-on are you looking forward to?

    The figma, will be the new crown jewel in my figma collection. And the Codex.
  10. 300k $ surplus theories

    Well, I would love to see side stories translated. Total Eclipse, The Day After... SM is too new.
  11. Your personal Muv-Luv experience.

    Well, I was planing to use your reviews and articles to enroll new fans.
  12. [RESOLVED] Problems with payments

    OK. It happened to me. The first time it failed because just this week I had to make an emergency expense, so the card was full, since I expected this I prepared a different CC except for: As lukae said, it gives you 404 when you want to retry or change/add the card. What id did in that case was click on "go to home" then click in the warning and then click the button again. It worked. Then I was able to add another card, and I got the "Collected" mail promptly. So, some pointers: If you got the 404, just wait a little and retry. Try as I did, reach that page from Kickstarter homepage. If it does not work, it eventually will. Sometimes your CC company will block transactions over certain value, they might warn you somehow (if their customer service is good) or just block it. This might happen whenever you are in the US or not. If the transactions does not work. I recommend contacting your CC company, I your credit card is enabled for international transactions (sometimes if you are not in the US your CC or debit card might be only "local") tell them to don't block the transactions. They might ask you to wait like they did to invalidname and then it will work. Remember you have 7 days so deal with the problem so, relax and contact the CC. If they tell you everything is OK, contact KS directly. It is unlikely they will double charge you, but if you can verify your account statement (if you can do it online, sometimes is updated immediately, sometimes the next day). You can usually call them immediately to ask if the payment worked.
  13. International Eishi Roster

    Name: Daniel Country: Ecuador I'm here to support a excellent story and a great product, because I hope that we can bring more great VNs like muv-luv to the west in the future. I just gave some money, I'm like Itami from Gate, I only work to support my otaku life-style (that includes gadgets were to play games)
  14. Spanish and Latin American Union

    Exactamente, además de una gran área “libre de BETA”, donde la población puede vivir con relativa normalidad, donde puede explotar los recursos naturales en paz y mantener cierto crecimiento. Las potencias que están invadidas deberían “negociar” entonces. Los grandes ganadores de todo serían los Estados Unidos, por la corta distancia. Seguramente la mayor parte de producción de petróleo de los países latinos iría a Estados Unidos. Los Estados Unidos intentarían mantener su influencia, a cualquier costo, buscando poner los gobiernos, en este caso el Chile de la vida real puede ser justamente un modelo (sin meternos a decir si fue bueno o malo).
  15. Spanish and Latin American Union

    Es interesante que menciones eso, una de las cosas que falta es la mención a América del Sur, a América Latina. Parte del problema con los BETA es que destruyen la tierra haciendo que sea imposible usarla para agricultura, pero en este caso tienes el continente americano por completo para sembrar y alimentar al resto del mundo, además de los recursos naturales del mismo. En el universo del juego los Soviéticos y los americanos requerirían estos recursos, sobretodo los americanos… Incluso menciones al Canal de Panamá serian interesantes de ver…
