    Just being sued, regardless of the outcome, costs a lot of money. Money Degica and ixtl likely don't have or have any interest in spending. Which was the point, I think. To provide another example, it's why Harmony Gold USA can still go around claiming they own Macross. It's because Satelite, Big West, Tatsunoko, or whoever simply does not have the interest or monetary means to take HG USA to court to begin with. Whether or not the songs could be considered fair use for being a parody in a civil suit is irrelevant. If you want to blame anyone, blame the lawyers and the garbage copyright law in the US.

    That's fantastic news. I was kind of concerned that they had cropped the CGs in order to better optimize the game, but that's not the case at all! She looks angrier, so I don't have a problem with this. Rather, we did know that some CGs were going to be enhanced. Probably one of those.

    I don't remember that background shot with the car ever being present in the original. Added CGs are nice. Very nice.
  4. Hello. Backed the kickstarter project at 300 dollars, very excited to get all my stuff and have a romp through muvluv again after getting into it while there was only the amaterasu patch for us english speakers. However, I recently found out that, probably because of the HD aspect ratio requirements, that CGs are being cropped in the Steam versions of Extra/Unlimited. Would it be possible to know if these CGs are also cropped in the galleries? If so, is there any chance that there will be an option implemented for the CGs to be letterboxed instead of cropped? I've found online screenshots of this happening and am attaching it to this post. Thanks.

    We're getting off track. I brought up Japan since it's usually easier to get secnd hand merchandise in impeccable conditionfrom Japan due to sites like Mandarake and Jungle. I just wanted to know if there will be more releases in general whether it be in Japan or elsewhere, not start an argument about regional exclusives.

    Kickstarter isn't usually promoted very well in Japan. In practice, making goods exclusive to kickstarter is locking out a pretty significant customer base in Japan if only because Kickstarter isn't at all any popular over there.

    I wonder if Japan will be getting a release of the KS dakis. I can't imagine that they'd be too happy across the big pond if they don't.

    I really wonder how difficult it would be to simply replace the song files by way of mod. I don't see anything listed as, well, SOUND FILES or anything obvious like that, so it'll probably require cracking or something.
  9. Colored Thunderbolt - What is a Bolo?

    There's a book that's coming with the physical goods for some backers that is a compilation of several books originally released in Japan with background information in it and an artbook. The specific book that I think would have an image of the A-10 in it that's been colored is Integral Works, which I own a copy of, but I don't have it with me at the moment due to various circumstances. Course, it'll have spoilers about pretty much everything, though, so I can't recommend going out to look for it to look through it yourself if you intend on reading the VNs spoiler-free.
  10. Muv-Luv Feedback

    You've seen my concerns all over the board, but those have been pretty much alleviated by some blog post from somewhere, so thanks for that. This, however, is a problem, I think. Even if the controls aren't rebindable (would be AWESOME if that could be made possible), having them listed in game would help the player experience a lot. I wasn't even aware of there being controls other than the typical VN controls of ctrl for skip, space/enter for moving ahead a line, clicking, etc. til I was directed to the discussion post on the steam community forums.

    I forgot to up my pledge to include a marimo daki before everything got locked in. Hopefully those weren't entirely kickstarter exclusive..
  12. Colored Thunderbolt - What is a Bolo?

    It might be in the book that was in the kickstarter rewards.

    https://aaltomies.wordpress.com/2016/07/18/lets-talk-about-muv-luvs-changes/ this explains a lot. Would do people good to read it.
  15. 18+ Patch

    Well, I don't expect it to be out til after the bulk of the work on the rest of the games are done anyways. Like just hearing "It'll be out after Alternative" or something would be nice so we know people waiting on the 18+ patch aren't being left high and dry like some other vn kickstarter campaigns have done.
  16. In regard to cropped CGs

    Yeah, that could be an issue. I don't really expect them to do anything that requires an overhaul of their engine or anything like that, but they do already have a scroll feature for longer cgs. I don't think it'd be too difficult to apply that to all of the cropped images, but that's just my speculation.
  17. In regard to cropped CGs

    Probably depends on whether or not they kept the cropped portions of the CG intact beyond the frame of the window or if it was all deleted.
  18. In regard to cropped CGs

    Yeah, now that I think about it, this probably won't be an issue in alternative or any games after that since thosegames were all16:9 to begin with, I think.
  19. Changed ost

    Yeah, this is one change that I can understand, unfotunate as it is. The original song was a direct rip of Vida Loca and would likely open Degica and Age to copyright issues. Can't be too difficult to get the song modded back in via a third party, though, probably. I don't think passive aggression is the right way to address customer feedback here.. No one said that all of the work you put into Extra/Unlimited is subpar.
  20. In regard to cropped CGs

    Yeah, seems any CGs that are already in a portrait orientation in the original version, like Marimo's Darkstalkers cosplay, have the scroll function, but any of the standard aspect ratio CGs all have cut tops and bottoms. That said, the screenshot above that I found on the web seems to have been FURTHER cropped than the actual in-game CG, for whatever reason. At the very least in-game you can still see some of the cropped portion of the OP image. So it's not as BAD as it seemed at first, but still, Sumika's ahoge is pretty much GONE, regardless... Even if it's not all that high priority for the team right now, it'd be good to see them respect the artists a little more and retain the full CG in Alternative, Photon Flowers and Melodies, and maybe down the line release an update for Extra/Unlimited that rectifies the cropped CGs somehow, be it a scroll for all the CGs or an aspect ratio/letterbox option. As it is right now, I'm feeling rather disappointed by this. Cropped CGs weren't acceptable in G-Senjou no Maou and I don't really think it is here, either. EDIT: Got a response from the people running the twitter account. I wish them the best of luck.
  21. In regard to cropped CGs

    http://steamcommunity.com/app/449830/discussions/0/359543542242173392/ Got a reply on twitter from the staff pointing me to the controls giving you the ability to scroll CGs. Will test later. I think my only concern now is when the 18+ patch will be out and if the Dakimakuras will ever be sold outside of the kickstarter..
  22. Colored Thunderbolt - What is a Bolo?

    There are A-10 resin kits out in UN colors in blue: http://myfigurecollection.net/item/175168 and USA colors in green, similar to the raptors that walken leads: I can't really say for sure if there are any CGs that are colored with them though. There may be some in some of the spin off novels.
  23. 18+ Patch

    Would like to know this, too. Any news on the 18+ patch would be nice.
