i'm curious: what's your average download speed rate, for torrents from places like hongfire and piratebay?
mine was normally around 50 KB/s, at its best; recently i changed my service up to 5 MB/s and the one in the picture is the fastest i've ever got.
>> No. 824 [Edit]
Torrent download speeds are determined by a number of factors, so it's hard to really give a general number for every download. Usually, public places like Hongfire/thepiratebay don't have well-seeded torrents (not always the case), and the few people that do seed tend to have slow upload speeds.

More seeds means more seeds that you can connect to, which equals quicker downloads. Less seeds means less seeds that you can connect to, which equals slower downloads. Slower/quicker speeds depending on the available number of seeds is not the sole factor in download speeds, though. Leeches (the people that are also downloading the same file as you) also play a factor in this, as they're consuming bandwidth from the available seeds. Leeches can also upload (just like seeds) to other available leeches at the same time, though, if they've already downloaded part of the file that other leeches still need. Another thing to consider is that leeches and seeds can toggle the amount of bandwidth they want to spend on uploading (or downloading). So, you can cap your upload speed at 20 kb/s if you really wanted to, even if you could upload at much quicker rates.

The most important thing to consider is your ISP's connection plan's speed, and the seeds/leeches' respective ISP connection plan's speeds.

That's just my experience, though. Sometimes you'll get 80-100 kb/s or higher download speeds from just a single seed, if there are no (or few other) leeches.

thanks; i know how it works, though. i guess what i really wanted to know (sorry) is the highest download speed brohnos had ever got from hongfire and piratebay VN torrents (cosidering, of course, their own service speed), just to have an idea of how good am i doing (or if you could suggest any better place to find good healt torrents).
>> No. 826 [Edit]
I think I've topped out somewhere around 200-300 kb/s on Hongfire, probably a bit higher on TPB.
>> No. 827 [Edit]
I'm using a 3mb (megabit) and my dl speed it's around 340~360 KB.

That scene in YMK where Aeka sneezes was pretty cute. I think I played that sound about 3 or 4 times, then moved on.
>> No. 820 [Edit]
Only times I recall doing it with females are in Shuffle with Mayumi since she was awesome, in Sekien no Inganock at times with Ati, and in Muv-Luv Unlimited with Kasumi's "Agaaaaaaaa".
Oh, I also repeated most of the lines in Chapter 5 of Sharin no Kuni, during that tsundere training flashback. That was glorious.
>> No. 821 [Edit]
I don't remember Kasumi's "agaaaa", but her "bye-bye" was fucking adorable.

I usually don't do it but I remember doing it quite a bit while playing WtK mainly because of Mikan.

Can you recommend me some dating sims? Preferably for PC. I tried looking on Google for some but all I get are links to people who think visual novels are dating sims.

I'm sure you all know what a dating sim is. Stats and all that good stuff.

Pic somewhat related. It's a SRPG with heavy dating sim elements. Gemini is mai waifu.
>> No. 810 [Edit]
Romance VNs with different girls to choose from aren't dating sims? they sorta have stats...

Unless you mean stuff where you have to work, earn money, and things to gain appeal along with talking to the girl a lot... Only ones i've played are the crappy ones on newgrounds a few years ago. (the zelda one was kinda funny though)
>> No. 811 [Edit]
I don't see why any game with girls to choose from to be your waifu cannot be a romance VN/dating sim in some form.
>> No. 813 [Edit]
I think he means that he wants a dating sim without the typical VN elements (I know it sounds a little silly, I can't find a better way to express it, though) i.e. storyline (and metaplot) and some pretense to be more than a dating sim.

To rephrase it: he wants a dating sim that doesn't try to be anything more.

... Or so I think. I can't really recommend anything myself, though, as I usually play exactly what OP doesn't want to play (for example Sharin no Kuni).

Here's a list of them on VNdb.

Do you barely know Japanese or not at all, are you a NEET, and want to read some crappy VN translation from /tobochan/?

If your answer to all of the above was 'yes', then join us in the Nana Puri play along!

How do I participate?
If you haven't been granted access already, I'm not quite sure how you're reading this. But basically it will work like this:

Dialog will be shit tiered translated until a decision point, and then the first decision to get 3 votes (this might change if more people particpate) wins.

I encourage you all to get the game and play along so you can experience the music and voices as well.

Let's get our Nana's on!

I grasp her held out hand.

And then seemingly relieved, Edel closed her eyes.


An insane and violent feeling developed in the pit of my stomach. I stood up while still grasping Edel.

There was not a speck of hesitation.

Edel smiled while in my arms.

And then, without turning, I stepped over the cliff.

Alright, just redid pretty much every post due to me being retarded and posting the same day I wrote. On that note, I really need a proof reader.

Anyways, please tell me if you enjoyed this format or if it is too cumbersome to continue to read it like this. As I said in the OP, I highly encourage you get the game. The music is very nice in this game and the sound effects help with the mood.

Every post in this thread is a different screen and every line is a click click, so you could follow along pretty easy if you have the game.

Has anyone else read Giniro? I'm going through it now and not too impressed. The first chapter lasted all of two hours, leaving no room for any real development. The character art and the music is quite nice.

The translation is a mess, but I don't think it was entirely fed through a machine. It's one of the few, if not the only, VNs to have an English translation done by the company that made it. There are a few parts that look edited, at least. It's definitely readable, but I don't know if you can say it's enjoyable with the translation in its current state. There was a re-edit/re-translation project for it that sprung up last year, but it's not ongoing. With some editing of the English translation, not the Japanese, it'd probably be a lot better. Obviously, it would be nowhere near entirely accurate, but sufficient, since it's unlikely to see a full re-translation anytime soon.

I've played this game last friday night (installed finally @ 9 pm, stopped at saturday 1:30 am) and saturday from 9 am to 5 pm.

Holy shit this VN is depressing as fuck as you all know. Does anyone know if the spin-off novels and other related stuff has been released in English or translated? The universe needs to be expanded upon. Especially the Junker's experience as a refugee. Or was he a child soldier? It wasn't shown exactly.

There was a radio drama that was subbed, but it might've only been partially.
