I hope nobody minds that I cleaned up the title a little bit.

574 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6836 22:07

I love the fact that it moves itself - like it's possessed or something. I still can't believe I actually made the damn thing.

575 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6837 09:21

I find it hard to use DQN because I'm too dumb to realize which threads have moved within the past week.

576 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6837 12:01

On the page source, from line 90 onwards we have:

var pictureSrc = 'http://shii.org/b/mittens.gif'; //the location of the mittens
var pictureWidth = 40; //the width of the mittens
var pictureHeight = 46; //the height of the mittens
var numFlakes = 10; //the number of mittens
var downSpeed = 0.01;
var lrFlakes = 10;
var EmergencyMittens = false;

I really want to fiddle about these settings. Especially numFlakes.

577 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6837 15:38

Go for it.

Also I like how Shii didn't even make any effort to hide that he adapted it from a GeoCities snowflake script.

Wishing on a dream that seems far off
Hoping it will come today

Into the starlit night,
Foolish dreamers turn their gaze,
Waiting on a shooting star

But, what if that star is not to come?
Will their dreams fade to nothing?
When the horizon darkens most,
We all need to believe there is hope

Is an angel watching closely over me?
Can there be a guiding light I've yet to see?
I know my heart should guide me, but,
There's a hole within my soul

What will fill this emptiness inside of me?
Am I to be satisfied without knowing?

I wish, then, for a chance to see,
Now all I need, [desperately]

woosh woosh woosh
Soshite toki wa ugokidasu.


Is my star to come.

I just pledged $16, let's hope it becomes a reality.

582 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6838 00:30

Oh thank you!
I gave $6 and sent it to my friends.

VC: shoy

583 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6838 08:14

I thought Katawa Shoujo was kind of boring but the music was nice.

Oh shit! I just realized that I'm going to learn sign language so I can talk with my girlfriend just like that guy in that game. I guess that eroge isn't all that different from real life after all? Fuck, did I just compare life to porn video games? I'm messed up!

584 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6838 09:42

Funny that you say that. I did Rin's route a few months ago and forgot about the game, but just last night I picked it back up on a whim. I played through Shizune's route and found myself thinking, 'I wonder how it would feel to play this while learning sign language to talk to a girl you like in real life?' No kidding, I actually thought exactly that.

I haven't played other VNs so I don't have anything to compare it to, but I was impressed by the art and detail. The plot and dialogue can be long-winded and angsty, and the sex scenes are laughably unrealistic, but I didn't expect much more from an eroge. All in all, it's a pretty fine game for what it is and a testament to the power of internet collaboration.

585 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6838 09:50

Why do you need money to make an album?

Why am I giving for a cause before it's even done anything?

Why not earn the money yourself if you need it? I might be able to get investors, but people on the streets wouldn't just give me money for a project even if it was noncommercial.

586 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6838 10:24

I'm tired and it's still two weeks until the festival.

587 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6838 10:27

Because nobody will just give you a studio and/or press your CDs for free.

588 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6838 10:41

In which case you earn money to pay for those things.

Asking for free money because you're a content creator is dumb. Imagine if instead of saving up for their instruments, The Beatles went around Merseyside asking, "Hello, me and my friends are trying to start a band. Would you mind giving us a quid or two so we can afford instruments and a studio?"

Not to mention content creation is fun. Welders or bricklayers may be able to get an advance, but they can't say, "Oh I'll probably weld some trucks or lay a few bricks in the future. Mind giving me some money now?"

589 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6838 11:30

Well, the good thing about Kickstarter is that you only actually give people the money when the target sum is raised and work on the project begins, so you're not exactly paying for vague promises of some distant future outcome. It's more like promising "if you find enough other suckers to get started, I don't mind giving you a small amount".

590 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6838 17:27

This is my new favourite VN, and it pretty much changed my life. Sounds like eye-rolling material right? Well it's what happened. Most other visual novels were pretty much just about the porn and the subsequent fapping. Katawa Shoujo was not, and it showed me what life could be. Rin and Lilly both. Now I'm running, eating better, drawing, learning ASL, and going to college after two years of doing nothing. I have a better understanding of myself and my life and how I want to live and the happiness that I seek to obtain. That I will obtain.
All because of this "cripple porn game." Heh.

591 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6838 19:57

I found something chemistry-related, but you're not around so I can't show you it. 'Tis a shame.

594 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6839 00:23


>just about the porn and the subsequent fapping

If you've been playing nothing but hentai VNs, sure.
I respect your appreciation of the game and the creativity which went into your inspired works, but for such a small project whose roots are in a niche game made for a niche audience and started itself with very few resources, I don't agree with you begging for money to do what so many others simply enjoy doing for fun.

595 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6839 00:25

Oh shit, I am sorry. Your post made me think you were the Kickstarter guy. Anyway I agree with you fully about how amazing the game itself it.

596 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6839 02:04

By calling it "begging for money", "free money", or whatever, you don't seem to understand what this is for. It's more akin to theater production or concert promotion, where your backers spot you money for something that will end up turning a profit, and that thing isn't going to happen unless there is enough funding to get things started (unless you're trying to replicate the plot of The Producers for real).

Also, the game's FAQ says, "Selling fanworks that do not use official content (including the KS logo) and do not pretend to be official is okay." therefore it is okay. Don't get your knickers in a wad about it. Embrace Elitist Capitalism Lifestyle, fellow DQN.

That said, the proposal isn't very clear on what the product will be (is this a for-profit EP? on what formats? where will it be found when it's done?). One should always make this clear in a pitch; no backer should have to deduce this from anything other than the first couple paragraphs of "about this project". You know, before anyone thinks I have anything to do with supporting this project--which I will not be donating to because I am 100% fucking broke and live in my parents' basement (´_`)トホホ

Maybe your decision to whine about it on an anonymous BBS instead of considering your conduct has something to do with it.

Thing is, he just deleted his Tumblr and stopped using one of his many pseudonyms. People do that all the time. The point of an infosuicide is you drop your internet presence, like why the lucky stiff and (possibly) Mark Pilgrim did. If you're still going to post, what's the point? How is it "goodbye internet ;_;" if you post just as you always have?

Reminds me of this retsupurae.

>one of his many pseudonyms

What makes a name false? Every identity which someone maintains is authentic in some sense.

618 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6840 07:46

That last caller was so full of crap. Everyone knows women are made from sand.

619 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6840 09:44

'pseudonym' is usually used in the sense of a self-bestowed title which one uses as a blanket under which his or her activities may be carried out in order to deter the credit given therein which would normally be associated with a more familiar, widely-known handle. It's not false, per se, but rather a deterrent from one's public and material identity.

I agree, however, and I think this is what you might have been getting at, that with the spread of information whose owner could be anyone, the notion of a static and unchanging alias which points only to the originator of the information itself is becoming less relevant.

Ritual for the disposal of hazardous cognitions.

621 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6840 17:39

I think >>619 put it well, but pseudonyms do have a valid use. Switch it to "alias" or even just "name" if you feel the terminology doesn't fit.

I agree though, I identify as a person more with my online handles than I ever have with my birth name.

This only raises further questions.

638 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6841 19:07

But "based on their breast size" doesn't even specify which end of the size spectrum would be favoured!

639 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6841 19:26

You're looking for the sixth one down, which, shockingly, does not yet have its own article. Someone must rectify this post haste.

I was assuming larger. It could make a satirical short story/film: fat men on the covers of fashion magazines and shit.

urbandictionary cleared it up for me but Distinguished Flying Cross is funnier...

642 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6841 19:44

I'm kind of amazed some uptight editor hasn't removed that entry. I mean considering the implications of DFC. If there were an article posted, it would probably get axed in a minute.

646 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6842 02:08

Wikipedia "is not censored".

I guess it could have a position under "lolicon" or "glossary of anime and manga terms" (I bet there's an article like that).
