Sekien no Inganock: General Discussion
« on: September 28, 2009, 07:51:04 pm »
This thread is for discussion regarding anything and everything about the visual novel Sekien no Inganock.

Since we're going to want a thread for this sooner or later anyway.

At the moment, the issue that prompts me to make this is that we have decided we need a new image editor. The current two simply aren't as fast, reliable and online as we'd like. For CC it was fine, but for Inganock, and more so in the future if we want to do something which requires far more image editing (Baldr Sky comes to mind), superior performance will be needed, so I'd like to deal with this now while it's not mission-critical.

Nagato edit: We've found someone that I'm pretty confident about who will be handling the image editing.

Especially funny since all the intelligent lurkers have known that's a serious possibility for ages.

Also RoXaS joined yesterday, so this issue may already be dealt with. We'll see how quickly he can do the Inganock menus.

All the best! Sekien no Inganock and Yaminabe Aries are the two projects I'm looking forward the most!

The name/locution list we're currently working from:

http://code.assembla.com/ixrecSnItl/subversion/nodes/Name%20and%20Locution%20List.txt

You may have to change your browser's Japanese encoding to SJIS to view this properly.

Many things on this list have been edited several times and probably will continue to be, perhaps even long after they're first used in the project (warning to all partial patch users: we may even change stuff after an official patch).

Sorry for the belated announcement.

The Inganock translation starts today (and statistics are already up).

Good question. I've actually wanted to mention this publicly for a while now.

I've edited the voting rules (http://amaterasu.is.moelicious.be/blog/?p=62) quite a bit since the last poll. Though there are a lot of changes, the most important one is probably this:

Quote
[There will be no poll if] I play a game and give it a perfect score of 10/10. If I find something *that* awesome, democracy be damned, I'm tling it (some of you may recall my "I'll tl this if it's the last thing I do" post in the old forums after finishing Cross Channel). The games I currently think might have a shot at this are MuvLuv Alternative, Forest, YU-NO, and Saihate no IMA, all of which I intend to play at some point (probably in that order).

I'm going to be reading YU-NO after I finish Baldr and Narcissu, so this may happen.

However, per other rules that were around during the last poll, any project that long I'd split up into pieces (talked to someone who played YUNO and he came up with three roughly equal parts) and between each part work on something else. That something else would then be decided by poll and may in fact be Baldr Sky.

Chapter 4 ought to be finished by October 18th, unless I find some excuse to take a day off. The first third partial patch should therefore be out not long after. Since all locutions have been successfully standardized thus far, I cannot imagine any reason why it would not be released.

赫炎のインガノック Sekien no Inganock

赫 = brilliant, shining, glowing, etc
炎 = flame
インガノック = Inganock, a fictional name with no inherent meaning

The translation of the title I've chosen to use is "Inganock of the Brightest Flame."
