I ported .flow to a newer, better engine.
TL;DR: .flow is now not a pain in the ass to play and you just need locale emulator.
so what the fuck changed?
-Game no longer starts in fullscreen mode (This triggered a directdraw error on most machines and you needed to download a special fix to unfuck everything up)
-Engine updated to RPG Maker 2k3 1.12a
-Adds a bunch of graphical options (F5 Key)
-Game no longer looks like ass on fullscreen due to better upscaling and shit.
-Better overall performance
-Easier installation. (just download, unzip and play with jp locale)
-Game can now be played using a controller. It should detect it automatically.
(Left is port, right is the og one, you were stuck with that tiny ass resolution.)
"start" is misspelled as "stert" on shinsoku neko
It's been like this since always, anon.
lol is not very good at english and translators keep it like that.
The DL has been updated to fix a lag bug in the Smile area
thanks man! I hated it opening in full screen.
You could maybe tell lol_rust what you did so he updates the main .flow, he's pretty open to english comments
I don't mind writing the request in japanese if you guys want, but I don't use twitter so it's up to you to deliver it.
Game still needs 2k3 RTP to be run, this can be fixed by adding "FullPackageFlag=1" to the RPG_RT.ini file
Quite interesting. I've litteraly never experienced those problems at all
Yeah he's playing through the game and "vaguely explaining things" (The title of the vid).
What that means is that he's talking about how he developed the game, occasionally mentioning how he designed things relative to Yume Nikki and showing how the effects work and how to do some puzzles.
Part 2 is up: https://youtu.be/Iv0TwV2QG2w
Thank you, this playthrough should be kind of a big deal for the .flow fanbase after all
lol_rust thanked the guy for translating so I think he just hasn't realised that community translations are turned off, instead of turning them off purposefully to discourage foreigners.
lol_rust is nice
he's always been nice to non-jp people, he even usually tries to reply to english tweets in english.
Not like he turned them off, they were turned off by YT. Yah.
please someone help me play this fucking game. I cant take it anymore hours of troubleshooting. I have been told to use EASYRPG which loads the game, but i immediately get error messages saying missing charset etc, and all the textures are missing. Please PLEASE PLEASE someone help, im at my wits end, feel like im being gaslighted because every googlesearch leads me to people saying "EasyRPG just werks" but it really fucking doesn't. THanks in advance
nevermind. i figured it out now.
Sabitsuki is a slut
I recently finished .flow but i forgot to make a second save before discarting my effects, so now im stuck with rust. Could someone provide me with a save with all of the effects?
I would like to keep exploring but I really don't want to have to find all of the effects over again.
I am playing on v0.194
Here's a link to the soundtrack video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CSJQZNFYV8Y
Technically it doesn't have all the BGM used in the game, but all the essential tracks are there.
Just use the walk through walls glitch and get all effects in the debug room.
LOL_RUST finished or not? What do you think?
Are you sure you can do the chair menu glitch while being rust? because pressing shift doesn't make me sit
Anyone know of an old 4-panel comic of Madotsuki and Sabitsuki saying something in the first two panels in unison, and then comically faceplanting their desk/keyboard? I saw it literally years ago on tumblr, but I can't find it again anywhere I'm looking.
fortnite (she has several victory royales)
Someone posted a download of v0.07 Japanese on the .flow wiki. Grab it while you can! This needs to be archived!https://mega.nz/file/XlggwKSA#LrD4j33eehkhQAAPWcWWTDqUm6aBXQRWAto1hNtrpZs
The .flower MAD seemed to have gotten deleted a few days ago.
Would anyone happen to have a copy of it? It's old, but it's something I have fond memories of. Used to be at https://www.nicovideo.jp/watch/sm21761855
, but I swear there was an upload onto YT that I can't find. Not sure if that got deleted too.
so i havent heard a lot of people talking about this yet? probably on twitter and discord n shit. lol's been working on a so called sequel to .flow called "sugar float" in reference to that one event. the protag is the yellow dress girl who i've always seen as sabitsuki's mother.
he streamed some game dev footage and theres been multiple gameplay vids up on his channel, looks like theres a lottt of text/dialogue, very story driven, i still havent gone through much of the footage. really excited to see where it goes. https://youtu.be/TOGeVCjC7ak
first of the gameplay vids, theres currently four.
What are you talking about? This is his old game
Oh man retard moment. My bad.
Here though he's doing Some sort of sequel. I think that dev log stream was deleted or something I can't find it on his channel. Could've been a separate game then, I distinctly remember reading the title in the files on stream as 'sugar float'
