So would you suggest that I leave my character in a changing room for an hour and then come back?

So I have a quick hypothetical. If I were to leave my character in some isolated area and let all the other characters interact, would they strike up relationships?

I suppose I'm asking how other characters go about establishing relationships.

Apparently yes. I mean, sorta. If you fit their attraction, they will likely come to you. If you set up so that everyone in the school ONLY likes your personality type then god help you.
I have an 'easy' classroom setup, and in this one everyone likes my personality type, i get interrupted aaaalll the time. However, I set it so they all like my personality type in addition to others, so I may not be the first person they go to. And if they hit it off with a few other people before choosing me, it is more likely those relationships will reduce the odds they will come see me (since they will be busy stopping to see each other more and more often).

But I still get surprised by the occasional student who I've never spoken to coming up to me after quite a few days have gone by, guess their friends finally let them go. AND it appears that every time there is an interaction, the previous intent of the 'other' student is forgotten and they have to make up their mind who they want to see...where they want to go, over again.

They appear to have the same options as you when it comes to conversation. (I have one girl who has a crush on 'me' who keeps coming up and saying "Oh nothing, teehee", most everyone else asks a question). And that %score you see I think is more tied to the action than the relationship, yet not separate either. IE the more you talk about Studying the stronger talking about studying becomes at influencing future conversations (to a degree). And also what they say to you when you start talking with them is a clue to what they are interesting in talking about.

So far the game is a successful experiment, but more so that than a game. They skimped out on H-interactions and went with a simplified cut-scene-esk format, which is really well done but removes you as a player and more a watcher. And the conversation interactions are nice, and it's great to see the AI use them, but the contexts of the school is lost. With the uniform dress code for all activities...the different clubs are in name only, and the classes are just ..."oh yeah BTW you are in a school". Much more could have been done with that.

Oh and if you didn't notice apparently studying and 'clubing' improves those stats. Which I don't understand the use of academics...unless there is a hidden attraction for the top students to befriend each other.


So would you maybe suggest that I leave my character in a changing room for like an hour in-game and then come back to play?

Can't do that, for then you can't answer positivity to their 'questions'. Now I don't know if you don't respond it counts as neutral or negative but it won't help. Now you can leave it running in the background and when you hear them talking go back to the game. Also...I would assume you are in a same sex changing room...

Anyone able to help out with a few phrases? They are the categories for the "top 3" screen (leftmost button in the classroom screen).

1. 好感告白 (successful confessions?)
2. 告白塾沈 (something else about confessions)
3. 酒池肉林
4. 性交豊富 (sex activity)
5. 初物狩人 (virgins deflowered?)
6. 変態紳士 (perversion?)
7. 喧嘩勝利 (fights won)

It took me forever just to recognize the kanji in most of them, and there's probably a mistake or two in there. It's very hard to read tiny fake-chalk writing. :(

somebody said earlier that if you ask somebody who is lower than you in academics to study it will raise disposition with them faster. No idea if that is true or just conjecture based on how people acted in their game.

To expand on what dctrjons has written, characters will interact with you randomly (as well as each other), if you are asked a question, you can choose not to answer and after 30-40 seconds the speaker will be disappointed (at your zombie like state I assume). This does not seem to affect anything as far as I can tell but is worth knowing. I have the game running right now in the background to see what else happens w/o player interaction.

Edit--
Unrelated, but perhaps useful. There is no male + male sex scenes. The screen flickers to black then returns immediately. Seducing another male as a male is also extremely difficult although the males may pair up themselves of their own accord. Your characters may also choose to cheat on their partners at times, with no (visible) consequences as I discovered to my shock as Mr.Popular was making sweet candy love to a girl on the floor while his girlfriend casually walked on by and yes, they are still together.

A) the thread is already past 500 because questions like this, and on this topic probably 30 posts alone.
B) I would advise you learn how to mod your game some, at least the help screen so that you know what you are doing when you randomly hit keys on your keyboard.

My game isn't saving properly. It says that I saved at X time but when I exit and relaunch the game the save is nowhere to be found. It isn't in the save folder either.

Anyone else having this problem? Fixes?

I found the cause of this MsgBox popping up:

(...)

You can patch the game: 0x3617D (0x436D7D) 75 => EB

You can insert centerXX.xx from some other Illusion game into base.pp

I repacked base.pp by myself (http://www.hongfire.com/forum/showthread.php/350443-Mod-Release-Thread-%28Illusion%29-Artificial-Academy?p=2991619#post2991619) so you just have to download, unpack it and put it in your data directory.

Hah, yeah, I did find the literal translation of that to be rather amusing. So I guess it's safe to assume that particular 'top 3' are ones who have had most different partners?

Thanks!

OK, here is my update :P

For anyone who had read earlier, I've been having problems with the game loading in my custom characters. I've tried many attempts to get them in there. Such as, installing to a default custom directory, since the HF patches don't work on default install directories... I've installed both Character Maker and the Main Game to separate folders, and both the programs work fine and they both see characters, however not any custom characters.

So, now I am COMPLETELY uninstalling the program, will go through my regedit and delete all Illusion entries (it's the only Illusion game i have installed :P) Of which it looks like i have just completed...

Now, I shall install to the default directory appointed by illusion and see if it finds my custom characters.... very aggravating :\

So, I figured out why I can't enter the Name of the school, etc…
No text is displayed at all. For instance, when a girl comes and asks my charecter something, Where the Japanese text (or gibberish) would be… there is nothing!
If I load the Included save-the slot looks blank!

Basically, the In-game text does not display… this does not include the buttons, etc because they are images…

Yes, I have the "install support for asian languages" Box checked… And virtually every other japanese game I have displays the text correctly… I'm on Windows XP (In Parallels, but that shouldn't matter)…

So… how do I fix this?

Yeah, i think so too, if it had any three some mode, i would be show up to Illusion web. In this image, you just use your space button to free your camera
Maybe we can have 3P mode or even a teacher in Plus, i hear a rumor about it

Ok, the update!

I've installed the game again, this time with the original japanese folder locations, and it worked. Then, I uninstalled, and installed to C:\illusion\AA Character Maker and C:\illusion\AA Game. I noticed that the programs installed to two different directories anyway. I created a character, and she popped up in the game. So now I am going to install the patches, and see if it works. Here we go!

Edit:

Well, as annoying as all that was, I finally got it working. I have no idea what was wrong from the start. After about 15 installations of the game I got it working :) :cries:

To Hentaiheart and kazumareika :

The interface translation has been updated -- http://www.hongfire.com/forum/showthread.php/350443-Mod-Release-Thread-%28Illusion%29-Artificial-Academy?p=2989295#post2989295

Currently v0.7. All that remains is the map, the rest of the 'top 3' screen and the thought bubbles you see when you click on the statue in the park (though frankly I'm not terribly optimistic about getting all of those... there's only about half of them that I even recognize the kanji due to the super small text).

Edit: Thanks to Ryozu, it appears I don't need to bother with the thought bubbles. Hoo-freakin'-ray for that. Updated to v0.8 to remove a couple files that conflict with Ryozu's.

How To install Artificial Academy (tested,it worked)

1.Mount both your ISOs
2.Set installation directory to C:\Program Files\Illusion\Artificial Academy
3.Install the Character Maker (mine was "きゃらめいく完全版_jg_02_cmake")
4.Set installation directory to C:\Program Files\Illusion\Artificial Academy Character Maker
5.Extract the Illusion Official patch ("jg_03_adjustment") and copypaste into C:\Program Files\Illusion\Artificial Academy.Overwrite all.
6.Install the Hongfire Official Patch v.02 ("Artificial Academy HF Patch")
7.Start playing!

To all who have gibberish text,etc

1.Go to Control Panel -> Clock,Language,Region/Region Language -> Administrative -> Change System Locale... -> Japan

If still didn't work try installing the Japanese language in Windows Updates

*f you already have any error,try uninstall everything,use CCleaner to cleanup,and re-install again.
*For those have reg issues,try use the Regfixer.

errr I think you shouldn't direct all users to install in program files, cause I heard a lot of troubles on installing games on ProgramFiles on Win7, something about unable to change or what.
I suggest installing in the root (C:\illusion\game folder or D:\illusion\game folder). It worked fine by far for me with all the illusion games installed.

From my very limited abilities it sounds like "3P... N-no, it's nothing...."

The problem with installing the game in Program Files or Program Files (x86) in Windows 7 or Windows Vista is that the game no longer has permissions to save in either of those folders. What you want to do is to either right-click and "Run as Administrator," giving the required permissions, or right-click, go to properties, then the compatibility tab, and then check the "Run this program as an Administrator" box to achieve the same effect but without being forced to right-click every time. Do this also for the AAEdit, as otherwise you won't be able to save characters.

about creating a character, under 'Thought' there is a choice 'preferences', is that;

preferences as in "one self" (ie personality/attitude. Example 'Devotion', he is devote/ show devotion towards other)
or
preferences as in "others" (ie how he likes others. Example 'Devotion, he likes people who are devote to him / other show him devotion).

sorry for the wierd question, maybe the choice made more sense in japanese.

Ok, so I figured out the time system. You start with 200 units of time per period. Any time your character begins running of his/her own choice (either by choosing an interaction target, pressing the run/talk button, or telling the player character to go to a specific location) it consumes 1 point. This means that getting interrupted on your way to a destination effectively wastes the one point you spent to start moving there.

Actually conversing costs nothing other than the 1 point you spend initiating movement regardless of the topic.

Using the blue button to initiate sex uses costs 40 points
Using the red one costs 50
Kissing costs 10
Hugging costs 5
Fondling costs 10
Taking her/him back to your room costs 100
Studying/Lunch/Clubs costs 20
Telling someone to leave the area costs 10
Fighting someone costs 50

FAILED attempts at sex/fondling/kissing/etc do not consume points.
As far as I've seen, only actions you initiate can consume points. I don't know if I missed any, I might have.

Edit: Just figured out that successful conversation choices cost an additional point, unsuccessful ones still cost nothing.

Devotion is how devoted they are to their partner. For example I had a girl in the pink relationship status who refused to sleep with me. I got on her boyfriend and dumped her. Hopped back on my MC and she put out immediately.


As far as I've seen, only actions you initiate can consume points. I don't know if I missed any, I might have.

The only problem with that is I have left the game running with my character alone in the bathroom and come back to have him back in his room at night.

Just going to post the instruction manual here, as it's got some good information about the game. I found the original huge-ass files on Share which where PNG format and ~40MB a pop, so I got my SheevaPlug (a small but powerful server) to convert 'em to JPG without any visible detail loss. The filesize fell from 337MB to just 3.8MB.

There's 16 pages to the manual, and here's what it looks like:

Hmmm, I will try to pin down what else is killing time.

Edit: Are you absolutely sure you didn't take any actions? I've left it sitting still for ~5 minutes with several characters asking me things, which I ignored. Still sitting at 200 points. I suppose it's possible there's some sort of time based count down that auto advances after X minutes.

Dont hang me if I am wrong. i went back and double checked the girls personality and she also had a really high virtue. With all the randomness of trait combinations unless somebody does some hardcore testing everything is conjecture based on gameplay, and results my vary.

It seems everyone have the JP text problem but I feel yours are kinda unique... (show nothing??)

Oh well, I met that problem on my Win7 too, here's how I fix it...

Install the game in C:\illusion\AA , Maker at C:\illusion\AAMaker

Set the PC unicode into -not-Japanese , I go Simp Chinese.

Run the game (or the Maker) with HF-appLoc


That works for me, but my problem was all JP text show as "!~*%^#-"

An interesting game, I might say. Character interaction is very solid - especially for an "artificial" game. Quite responsive to the traits chosen - feels very "natural".

Character customization is slightly disappointing - aside body type\height settings, AG3 had much better character generator. I don't even want to mention the clothes. How lazy can they get? One boring set of clothes for everyone, in several colour patterns? I mean, sure - the setting kind of allows them this sort of slack (it's a school, and everyone wears a uniform), but they could have at least add some diversity to what is worn under this uniform, know what I mean? *Sigh*

Here's horrible automatic translation (google translate) and script used for making the translation.
Translation is completely unsupported and is meant to be useful for other translators only(you'll be able to see a filename and line number for each reply + original text). Comes "without warranty of any kind".

i don't know how is it installed

copy&paste on data dir?


Anyone able to help out with a few phrases? They are the categories for the "top 3" screen (leftmost button in the classroom screen).

1. 好感告白 (successful confessions?)
2. 告白塾沈 (something else about confessions)
3. 酒池肉林
4. 性交豊富 (sex activity)
5. 初物狩人 (virgins deflowered?)
6. 変態紳士 (perversion?)
7. 喧嘩勝利 (fights won)

It took me forever just to recognize the kanji in most of them, and there's probably a mistake or two in there. It's very hard to read tiny fake-chalk writing. :(
1. 好感告白 confessions received
2. 告白塾沈 confessions attempts

3. 酒池肉林 seems like any sort of orgy. i u search those kanjis like images. maybe public sex without interrupts?

6. 変態紳士 (perversion?) it counts how many times any char go in a forbidden room, "like a girl going to boysroom"

Someone may want to try running the scripts through OCN (http://www.ocn.ne.jp/translation/) or Excite (http://www.excite.co.jp/world/) translators. Sometimes they give better results, and honestly may be useful for other translators (at least more useful. But personally I think a poor machine translation would be more confusing than helpful to a translator who knows some Japanese already.)

the machine translation seem to miss a few talk lines of the "ditzy" personality. (i think... hmm or it might be the "innocent" one)

also:
anyone know what the lower numbers at the load screen up right mean?
i think the first is "number of girls"
2nd "number of boys"
and the left of the lower ones is probably "number of ingame days passed"?
no clue what the other two might be though... i guess the whole lower row is some time counter atleast.

So, I figured out why I can't enter the Name of the school, etc…
No text is displayed at all. For instance, when a girl comes and asks my charecter something, Where the Japanese text (or gibberish) would be… there is nothing!
If I load the Included save-the slot looks blank!

Basically, the In-game text does not display… this does not include the buttons, etc because they are images…

Yes, I have the "install support for asian languages" Box checked… And virtually every other japanese game I have displays the text correctly… I'm on Windows XP (In Parallels, but that shouldn't matter)…

So… how do I fix this?

I had messed my own laptop around and changed a number of setting, and found one setting that "might" be the reason for some text not showing correctly.

Region and Language -> format (I usually set it at English or Chinese)
After I switch it to Japanese, also in Japanese Unicode, then it works perfectly.

Well, I got my copy of the game today. Shipped to northern Europe without any problems. As usual I bought it at paletweb.com (http://www.paletweb.com/selectpage.asp?code=0003754) and they have never let me down. The first game I bought at paletweb was SB3, when it was released many years ago, so they have plenty experience with shipping to Europe. As usual they wrote a value of $10 allowing it to slip through customs.

To those interested, the box flaps are blank, so there is no indication of what their next game will be. If you don't know, Illusion often printed pictures that were a clue to the next release on the box flaps. I think it's the first game I bought where they were actually blank - normally they had some pictures or symbols from the game. SM2 had a lollipop if I recall right. Oh well, here's hoping for an expansion to this excellent game!

I'm borderline on this one, I was expecting more from Illusion than just a 2D background map while the rest of the characters are in 3D. The engine seems to be quite solid, and doesn't lag on my PC. CPU Usage bobbed up and down from 5% to 30%, which is a record for a Illusion game in my books - most other Illusion games would peg my CPU at 40% to 50% percent.

The character setup is also awkward, how you control a character and then you say which target you want to follow/talk/etc. I was expecting a more 3rd person camera, not something that's from an anime.

All in all, I think it's a good turning point for Illusion. It seems even to cope well on older hardware, which is a plus. I haven't accessed the H Scenes yet (too busy playing as Mikoto :P) but it's a keeper.

SoftwareGuy out.

Based on MrHands and Gamen save file format I made a save game editor:
http://www.mediafire.com/?7ssw53fp7qqmb95 v0.5.1b (update)
Update:
- Because of new save mechanism there might be some save file (especially file with killed student) that failed to load after edited, hope this update will handle it correctly.
Change log:
- Added new feature: import character from AAMaker save file (Body, Face, Hair, Personality, Thought, Taste) to existing character.
(note: there is new dll that used to load AAMaker save file which is I create from UNAGI code, so credit will go to original author. Any import doesn't change relationship data.)
- Added: new personality 'Cold' (id 25), at least that what google translate said.
(note: I have tried it using AAXPlay but in game it's shown a 'Ditzy' personality, but then again it might be my installation gone wrong)
- Fixed: Sexual experience now edited correctly.

Note:
1. BACKUP your save file before editing it (even thought it's work at least for me, it based on a several assumption because of unknown data in save file format).
2. This software made using .Net so you must download Microsoft .Net Framework 2.0 (For Windows 7 user this maybe already installed).
3. This is can be seen as beta release so there might be few bug around.
4. Template file for relation parameter also included that will give a pink relation(view at statue) at instant, although I haven't test it for more variant personality.
5. How to use? Open save file, right click at desk.

Older Release:
http://www.mediafire.com/?nzaw8pxs64xmrlj v0.4b (old)
Change log:
- Relation edit : Add new 'lovers' flag data (thanks to 14mhz for the data format), fix stability issues.
- Character edit : Added Personality(Club, voice, etc), Thought(Orientation, Skill, etc) and Taste(Preference, Personality).
(note: I have set sexual experience so the target become a virgin again, but it's doesn't work, that maybe the game save another flag for it, which is still unknown).

@SoftwareGuy: I think the gameplay is the most important. You could consider the low-poly mode as the strategic part of the game and the conversations/H as the tactics if you know games like Total War series. The strategic part of such games have often simplified UI because that's all you really need. I think it's a great game with many hours of fun trying out hundreds of possibilities. On top of that, the full-poly models look great and the animations during H are many and extremely high quality.

This game has it's merits, and it's fun, but the interface still bugs me; it's unnecessarily limiting and distancing rather than immersive. Why can't I click on anything and go there? Why can't I click on clothing or body parts during H-scenes and interact with it directly rather than a bank of numbered buttons? AG3 may have been non-obvious, but it certainly wasn't non-intuitive, and even without the cursor hints given, you could figure it out by experimenting and only needed to figure it out once.

I love the game but a lot of it feels really incomplete. For example the statue. You can click it, and your character will run to it. So they had the code in the game, but they didn't implement it for anything else. The bitch about, look at, ask about buttons also could have been used to expand the social dynamic even more. Bitch about to two people about the other enough to start a fight or something.

Almost all the fun comes from the crap you make up in your head about your class.

^Yeah, it makes me think that this time illusion is trying to make a H-game where people will spend a long time playing with- just like AG3 when it was out. Only that H-gameplay playthrough tend to get stale quickly, so maybe they were thinking of some way to make players' interest remain for longer, and decided to ditch a bit of H for more role-playing and things to do other than H. I must admit though that an environment where the characters talk about stuffs is interesting and cute. For that, I'll keep supporting the translators by modding all of the clothes textures.

P/S: To anyone who was looking forward to my clothing mod, I just released one of them in the mod release thread.

Nice. I was hoping you would be doing something like that next. I need something to put my rich stuck up girls in. Once the full series of faction clothes is released I am going to build a new class with personalities made exactly for each costume.

I hope the ai will help me out and make all the people in the same faction friends.

Lol all this talk about factions reminds of this movie & game:

http://www.cinecon.com/frontimages/2246-the-warriors-52797_318291.jpg

I got that idea too when I was starting out. I just hope that if illusion releases an expansion next, it'll allow more than just preset number of clothes. That way we can have more factions without needing to replace the textures when all replacements are used up.

Now that I think of it, there's also the male clothes to mod. Not customizable in-game, but I should spice them up just to get the faction feel play well. But hold on- I'm doing the girls' first...

You probably moved the game after you installed it. The patch looks at this registry key:

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\illusion\AAPlay]
"INSTALLDIR"="C:\\illusion\\AA\\"

Make sure that your game is installed to the location that you can see at the third screen when running the patch.

a few short questions if some one might have time to answer :please2:
or direct to some wiki link (first time playing artificial academy, so i dont know if aa3 was the same).

When you interact with someone and finish the semi iritating one liners you some times get a number of %, what is it? and how do you see/check and advance relationship status?
(if there is such a thing, which i guess since peps here on the thread have mentioned things like pink status etc. and intimate acts have pink buttons)

//thanks big time

for the text errors, atleast on vista 64, (sorry if a bit obvious) but might be why some peps seems to be missing font.

Under the region and lang setting in control panel there is an button for installing langs, did you guys just set keyboard/os to jap or did you accually download the (if i remember right) 1gb-ish japanese lang. file?

Used to have similar problems on other japanese games untill i let windows properly download the entire lang. file. (just checking) and if the fonts still wack out try to reinstall the lang file (font are included in it).

Oh and for windows users it should be enough just running the game with applocal and choosing the choice at the bottom of the list.

You probably have the characters turned off. Hit the number keys once you hitan h scene. Just hit 1 2 3 and see if stuff starts coming in,

So I have a couple of problems. One I never could get the game "installed". It would always say something like windows can not verfiy the installer or something similar to that and then close out. So i worked around it copied the data files from both disks into a location and then edited my registry so that the luncher would find them. And now that I finally did get it to run, everytime I hit those buttons up top (the converstaion buttons i'm assuming the ones on top when your going from place to place,) the game crashes. No error it just pops up with the little windows thing that says whatever has stoped working. So I read the wiki and it had the suggestion to run in full screen. That didn't help, tried that "patch" to fix the error that pops up when entering conversations, that didn't help. And i searched through the board looking for others with these problems ....nothing.....So if anybody can help me with these things it would be much apperciated.

And BTW I do have my local set to japan and tried installing with applocal.

Ok. Well Im probably just missing it but im clearly only Dling the AAedit and not the real game. I didnt have time to read all 63 pages of this thread because my GF is about to bite my head off. Anyways can someone post the link of the playable game here for me? I'v Played all the AA girl games and installed all of them myself before with the help of this site. And never had a problem like this lol. Its probably just me being dumb but i would love the help and or links to what im not Dling lol. Iv done it three times so far doing the Direct DL and then the torrent. Ill link them both below. Also when i run these with Daemon and mount disc one, i never get the option to mount disc two. It just finishes and when i do mount disc two it only gives me a fold with nothing important.

Just my two cents (since I normally lurk around here). Looks like they took that shortcut used in the gamecube remake of Resident Evil. By using static background they have lots of extra polygons (aside from the "love" scenes) for 25 characters onscreen.

I'm sure people already know this, but if you give enough "attention" to perverted female characters and you DON'T try to have penetrative sex with them they will eventually initiate sex with your character if you're in an unoccupied room. They never did this in the men's changerooms or the men's restrooms.

I guess I'll keep experimenting to find out what else I can have happen in this game.

Also, what's up with the "Loader"? It's also detected as a thread, but why do I need it?

Some anti-virus may detect it as a threat because it piggy-backs onto AAEdit English executable. You need it for a "complete" translation, something about Unicode resources...
It's not detected as a threat for me (using MSE + Malwarebytes)

I have Artificial Academy AND Schoolmate 2, working flawlessly, but when I Tab out and return, all that awaits me is a black window with just sound and keyboard control. I remember reading somewhere here, someone else had the same problem and I can't find it anymore.

I would very much like to know if there was a solution for this.

My specs are high (i7-2600k, HD 6970, 16 GB DDR3 RAM, OCZ Vertex 3 SSD, etc...), but I never had this problem with my previous PC (It had 7950GX2, so it may be a problem with ATI cards only).

depend of the OS, and resolution desktop
under Vista/W7 you can Try to disable DESKTOP compo in the shortcut property!
most problem are comes with AERO DESKTOP SUPPORT

be sure your PC have all updates up to dates, DirectX, drives!

my install
installed the game under Vista Ultimate (all updates)
- i don't use APPLOC, (also with the HF patch)
- set the unicode to Japan work 100% (Vista)
i got the "Soho" torrent (download in arround 2 hours)

under installation, i suggest to disable antivirus
- disk 1 run the MSI instead of the setup.exe!
- again disk1 run the startup.exe (for the editor)

Thank you. I have added this solution to the wiki (http://scratchpad.wikia.com/wiki/Artificial_Academy_Technical_Help#Running_the_game ), so hopefully this will mean an end to posts about game that crashes if you installed it to the default destination.

Thou shalt not install the game to the default destination.

Second commandment:
Thou shalt not post without having checked the wiki for thy question.

New release v0.3a has come out, with improved stability and new feature personality editor.
Still, if any save game cause it to crash, send it to me.
Also thanks for any feedback that has been sent to me.


Based on MrHands and Gamen save file format I made a simple save game editor:
http://www.mediafire.com/?31a34u2ajxg8ed2 v0.3a (recomended)
Change log:
- Improved file format parsing on relationship data.
(note:because of new discovery of relation partial data format, now not all character pair relation can be edited, un-editable character pair (with red border) can't be selected)
- Added edit character feature (only personality for now).
(note:the game classify the personality for male and female, but in the editor it's all displayed so a male can have female personality, and viceversa. I have tried some and it's work, but this is a violation on game rule so use it carefully)
- Changes control, right click at desk to bring menu popup.
http://www.mediafire.com/?8fsttizytimd8wz v0.2a (Old)
Change log:
- Upgrade file format handle.

Note:
1. BACKUP your save file before editing it (even thought it's work at least for me, it based on a several assumption because of unknown data in save file format).
2. This software made using .Net so you must download Microsoft .Net Framework 2.0 (For Windows 7 user this maybe already installed).
3. This is can be seen as pre-alpha release so there might be bug around, and in this release the only editable data is relationship parameter & personality.
4. Template file for relation parameter also included that will give a pink relation(view at statue) at instant, although I haven't test it for more variant personality.
5. How to use? Open save file, right click at desk.

When enabled, it'll make the camera center on the part of the body you click with your mouse button. For example, if you click her tits, it'll center on that, if you click the face, it'll move to that part. Doesn't exactly work like it should tough...

Not sure if this has been said before (sorry, I'm not reading every post here). I found that taking your "friend" to any boy's locker room is the best way to not get interrupted during interactions with the person. Girls will follow you there but it seems like they will not enter without telling them to do so.

So far in the game I got 3 "girlfriends" and 4 "sexfriends". They seem content on sharing the guy for now, think it is because the others never caught him screwing another.

Help. 3 girls grateful on 100% (Pink), in an effort confess or any red action always 0% even when girls themselves red.


check if they have bfs already. If they're a certain type of personality , like faithful, they won't leave their current bf for you no matter what. Tried to seduce a faithful girl with another girl, they got to "true love", but she wouldn't accept her heart.

'
also just an FYI for people playing around with the character editer thing

for Preference, the more left you set them, the more they want to be "in charge"
the more right you set them, the more they want you to be "in charge" during the h scenes.

just saying cause I initially thought the opposite.


for those who haven't gotten the english patch to work, it's the 6th tab in the character maker, 4th option from the top.

if someone can explain anything in the 7th tab of the character maker, i'll be much obliged

Overall the x6 would be faster for your system, but unless I'm wrong, most applications don't support 6 cores. Hell most don't even support 4. So for progams and such the x4 would produce faster results.

I will say, that the patch for some reason didn't apply the demosaic to either m or f. also ran into the Loader problem, but that was easily fixed, all i did was download the stand alone loader from Shadow I believe and just put it in the folder and it worked.

I haven't had anyone reporting similar issues. There has been one or two reports that the previous demosaic didn't work, but I can't say if these came from the fact that the demosaic only worked on the nude model. The latest version (0.4) includes the full demosaic (http://www.hongfire.com/forum/showthread.php/350443?p=2993819#post2993819) by remere and it works great (remember give him some rep).

I highly doubt that. Although eroges are quite popular in Japan, most of the eroge companies are small and don't have the necessary number of workers, money and/or equipment to develop a game with high technical standarts.

Even Illusion, with the most capable eroge 3d engine right now (in my opinion) is miles away from a well known game engine like unreal engine 3 or cryengine.

The latest version (0.4) includes the full demosaic (http://www.hongfire.com/forum/showthread.php/350443?p=2993819#post2993819) by remere and it works great (remember give him some rep).

What is "the Loader problem" about?

The patch I installed was .4. Idk why the demosaic didnt work. What can I do to fix it? The maker was telling me that the Loader could not be found and it wouldn't translate the Maker at all. I searched the wiki and around here and found that for some reason the loader in the maker folder was not working. I just downloaded the one that came with either Shadow or Wurlox's translation and just copy/paste and it worked fine. ATM it's only the uncensor and demosaic that I have a problem with. Well, also the translation for the story is a little iffy, but that one is understandable and not really that necessary.

guess we cant change res right ? no matter what i changed it stays wide screen res

Seems like the game uses a fixed 16:9 ratio even on 4:3 resolutions... bad news for us 4:3 monitor users, as we are wasting a lot of screen space which could be used to fully see the h-scene models... Like it is now, all is cropped to a 16:9 ratio.

this game should have those bar or something to tell either your relationship with the girl is good or not but then who care for now i been scoring quite a load of girls from getting the girl to talk with the guy close to a girlfriend then the girlfriend get piss at the guys as u pick the other one instead of the girlfriend then just comfort the girlfriend and then go back to talk to the girl u pick, that should raise ur relationship with the girl but so far u have to do it 2 time to that girl tho....

EDIT:

O one more thing during this time u should at least do the hug, kiss, or touch the girl

For people using 4:3 monitors; there's a program you can get called Reso. This program makes a shortcut to program exe's and runs them in the resolution you preset when making the shortcut with the program. I've used it in a reverse fashion for older Illusion games that didn't support 16:9 ratios. Perhaps this program will be of use to the 4:3 users out there in Hongfire land.

I have one question unrelated to modding. Is it normal for conversations to end after you've picked 1 option? I feel that this is ain't right because there is this percentage thing in the top left which probably shows affection or arrousal rate. At each convo it goes back to 0%. So whatever you say before that is useless because with everything you say you start a new convo.

To those having trouble with the patch not detecting your AA Edit (Maker) installation: You probably moved/renamed the folder after you installed it.

Your game will not work, because the game will look for AA Edit in the same place that the HF Patch does. The HF Patch looks at this key to determine your AA Edit location:

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\illusion\AAEdit]
"INSTALLDIR"="C:\\illusion\\AAMaker\\"

If INSTALLDIR is set to something different from your actual Maker location, the patch (or the game) will just not work.

In addition, if you installed AA Edit to the default destination, your game will probably not work (it will crash when it tries to read your character files).

I have updated the wiki with pictures showing how it looks when you install and what you should do to fix the location. I have also updated the quick step-by-step guide (http://scratchpad.wikia.com/wiki/Artificial_Academy_Technical_Help#Quick_step-by-step_guide) to include the steps to install AA Edit, so there is no excuse for not doing it right.

Well. Everything was going good so far, but, the game options seems.... wrong now.

When I start a new class, a few things are wrong :
- Frist, time period do not pass... I can talk, and do activities indifinetely, without going onto next period; through I still can change by hitting hitting "next period".
- Even if my characters do not really match my MC, in five minutes, I already have 5 or 6 confessions from girls I havn't even talked once...
- And, finally, seems to have a boobs bug, they seems REALLY bigger in the game than in Character Maker...

Anyone got those problems too?

I tried opening it in CMD but then I can't actually use it, as drag and dropping in the .pp files just adds their location to the end of the command line. I managed to unpack the .pp files by using "open with" in properties, but i now i can't repack them as i can't do the same with folders. Help?

Drag'n drop the .pp file on it to decrypt it, replace files in the folder, and, then, drag'n drop again the folder on it to re-encrypt it to .pp.

For #3, I think it's just how the vests work. It makes their breasts look a lot larger in the game then it does once it comes off.

This is a somewhat random question, but it's been bugging me for a while now... in the creator, is the naming going surname then given name, or given then surname? I mean, it probably has no impact gamewise, but it's really bugging me knowing if I'm getting the names backwards. So basically is the creator going like:
Smith (surname) Jill (given)
or
Jill (given) Smith (surname)

guys, i'm still confused with these bluescreen.

check the blue screen, often error is reported with same sequential number, containing the error, the adress and stack pointer, but probably there is a filename included like samething.dll or samething.sys ; get info about that file to know what is about; if it's related to any hardware device try to update/clean/reinstal/disable/etc.
If it's related to sam software like antiviruses, virtual devices or others search a solution for them.
if it's a windows related file then things are more difficoult and a can't help, search the filename combined with the error number that look samething like 0x0000008e and prey.
If no filename is reported you're dealing with a cpu exception and you can give up or sell your pc to buy another.

Try hitting your "1" and "3" keys during an H scene - the control character visibility.

Seems I'm unable to correctly express the "problem" with 4:3 resolutions... It's not really a big problem, I'm just cursing Illusion for the way they always managed the screen resolutions thing. Before, it was all 4:3, and now it seems to be 16:9 no matter what. See the attached image, hope that explains better what I was aiming at. That's how the game looks at 1280x960. The resolution is 4:3, but the game works only in 16:9 mode, and adds black bars to fill up to 4:3. They could have let 4:3 users enjoy the extra height to fully display the h-scenes, and not like now where they look like they're cutted (because the game crops to 16:9).
That's all I was trying to say, and neither any resolution program or the excellent enter75 mod can fix that.

New version released with personality, thought and taste (AAMaker tab page) properties.


Based on MrHands and Gamen save file format I made a simple save game editor:
http://www.mediafire.com/?nzaw8pxs64xmrlj v0.4b (new)
Change log:
- Relation edit : Add new 'lovers' flag data (thanks to 14mhz for the data format), fix stability issues.
- Character edit : Added Personality(Club, voice, etc), Thought(Orientation, Skill, etc) and Taste(Preference, Personality).
(note: I have set sexual experience so the target become a virgin again, but it's doesn't work, that maybe the game save another flag for it, which is still unknown).

For now I don't have any plan to create 'appearence' editor because it would be hard to edit without the view like AAMaker had, so one way to do it is to import only the 'appearence' data from AAMaker save to AAPlay save, but I'll make that if I have more time and it's possible to do that. So for now the editor focus on the gameplay(story) data aspect.

Note:
1. BACKUP your save file before editing it (even thought it's work at least for me, it based on a several assumption because of unknown data in save file format).
2. This software made using .Net so you must download Microsoft .Net Framework 2.0 (For Windows 7 user this maybe already installed).
3. This is can be seen as beta release so there might be few bug around, and in this release the editable data is relationship parameter & Character (personality, thought, taste).
4. Template file for relation parameter also included that will give a pink relation(view at statue) at instant, although I haven't test it for more variant personality.
5. How to use? Open save file, right click at desk.

Older Release:
http://www.mediafire.com/?31a34u2ajxg8ed2 v0.3a (Old)
Change log:
- Improved file format parsing on relationship data.
(note:because of new discovery of relation partial data format, now not all character pair relation can be edited, un-editable character pair (with red border) can't be selected)
- Added edit character feature (only personality for now).
(note:the game classify the personality for male and female, but in the editor it's all displayed so a male can have female personality, and viceversa. I have tried some and it's work, but this is a violation on game rule so use it carefully)
- Changes control, right click at desk to bring menu popup.

Is there a way to install the game without having japanese locale set up because something is wrong with my locale my computer simply refuses to do anything with a japanese locale, I have Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit, and anytime I try to launch any installer I get error 1208 when using run with japanese locale, if this problem as been addressed already please point me in the direction of the post, but 73 posts is to much to search though

Okay dude, I had the same problem before. The 1208 ANSI one. HFpApploc didn't work at all.
No matter what you try you'll never be able to play it unless you change the Jap locale in your very own comp.
So what I did was to install the game and character maker in another comp after changing it to Jap local. (My brother's notebook when he was not at home :P)
After installation was complete, I saved the registry by typing regedit, searched for illusion in HKCU/Software and exported the file.
Installed Inquisitor HF Patch.
Then I copied the whole illusion folder from the notebook to my comp which is using a pirated win 7...I think.
Implanted the registry.
Manually changed the key directory of the AA Play and AA Edit in the registry and tadaa works perfectly for me now.
Have been playing like this for the past 4 days and not a single problem.
Also advise to install Japanese font called 'Meiryo' in case it is not found in your Fonts folder.

This is the only way to play it for those who don't want to change any settings in their own comp or is having serious problem by changing their locale.

I'm seriously wishing for a save to function atm... auto saving into the same file means when I make a new class.... since I HAVE to have unique characters, i have to readd them 1 by 1 and make changes to their uniforms 1 by 1... if there only was a save to function or something like that I could just make a copy :( and start from where I left off if I wanna change something not so drastic

Ugh and in an effort to manually copy-save, i accidently copy-saved the wrong one... and deleted the wrong one -.- .. but from the game.... meaning it's not even in my recycling bin... /wrist

any idea of what i can do to make the game run :/

the bluescreen still coming even after i try to disable my amd overdrive-- i'm not really knowledgeable in overclocking, tbh.

so i go install another win7 on this computer, x86. hoping it will works good.

but i dont wanna take trouble reinstalling AA, do you people have any registry fixer, so that i could play it without reinstalling it?

Hmm, can someone translate this; "Head over to UV and dl upillu2-0502.zip", to be more specific, the head over to UV, part.


@gashbell, found the site not the software, if the only pw i've seen metioned a bunch of times is, jg, if i remember right.

edit* ok found chrmake103 on the site but its a .pat (??) file and no pass on the zip

ok, so i tried everything on the wiki
im unable to run the game

Update your graphics driver. You should also doublecheck where the game thinks you installed by checking the registry and make sure that there are no characters outside a-z (like for instance ñ) in the path to the game.


Okay dude, I had the same problem before. The 1208 ANSI one. HFpApploc didn't work at all.
No matter what you try you'll never be able to play it unless you change the Jap locale in your very own comp.

Have been playing like this for the past 4 days and not a single problem.
Also advise to install Japanese font called 'Meiryo' in case it is not found in your Fonts folder.

This is the only way to play it for those who don't want to change any settings in their own comp or is having serious problem by changing their locale.
I'm sorry that I can't help you with the issue you have with Asian games (reinstall Windows?), but I know that you took the long way around instead of doing a manual copy (http://scratchpad.wikia.com/wiki/Illusion_Games_How_to_install#Manual_copy) like described on the wiki. However I realize that it was necessary because you needed the registry keys (asap! :P).

The TheShadow will soon release an updated Registry Fixer, but until then here are the keys, in case it might help somebody:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\illusion\AAEdit]
"INSTALLDIR"="C:\\illusion\\AAMaker\\"
"PRODUCTNAME"="ジンコウガクエン きゃらめいく"
"VERSION"=dword:00000064

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\illusion\AAPlay]
"INSTALLDIR"="C:\\illusion\\AA\\"
"PRODUCTNAME"="ジンコウガクエン"
"VERSION"=dword:00000064

...

To guys having trouble installing: Do yourself a favor and stop thinking that you're the only one that ever experienced problems installing these games. Almost every known workaround is already described in the wiki (http://scratchpad.wikia.com/wiki/Artificial_Academy_Technical_Help). It's so few things that you need to know to do it right and all the information is there for you. Save yourself the frustration and spend a few minutes reading it while downloading the game.

Here is the char editor from http://www.uppervolta-3d.net/illusion2/.

Dont know who made it but thx, and thx to Inquisitor for the link and thelulz for showing which value is for breast size (its '00D')

(Hopefully the reason no one did this before was because no one felt like it and not because its against any forum rules, and if any one did somewere else, sorry)

If this game had full yaoi scenes, I would still like the option to keep it limited as it is now in my own game. Gay sex in the halls, that's funny. A full screen view of it, not so much. But hearing the voices of men fucking -- holy shit, I would have to shut it down.

oops forgot pass is "jg" (no quotes)

Btw any one that has used this, and has some japanese skills, a, well for some atleast, interesting question.
When choosing a char the lower right button seems to be able to change between defined as male or female, without changing the model? (though havent tried it ingame if it works or crashes)
Atleast the chars are changed between pink and blue, so if any one that can read jp can confirm?

or should i put this in mod discussion forum instead?



tested , not working , character still remain a female


edit : worked but not properly

Thanks to the awesome modders releasing a bunch of (partial) uncensors I thought it was time to update the patch. Unfortunately there still isn't any female 3D uncensor that looks properly (go-go FutaBoy! lol), so for now you have to make do with either demosaic or a simple uncensor. There is still no full uncensor for this game, so be sure to read the mod descriptions below, so you know what you get!

I also decided to include enter75's awesome Windowed Fullscreen mod, which allows you to run in a window with the game looking like it's in fullscreen. Set the resolution in the game to that of your display and you will realize what this is about.

Artificial Academy HF Patch version 0.5 includes:

UV means Upper Volta, go here: http://www.uppervolta-3d.net/illusion2/


Update your graphics driver. You should also doublecheck where the game thinks you installed by checking the registry and make sure that there are no characters outside a-z (like for instance ñ) in the path to the game.


I'm sorry that I can't help you with the issue you have with Asian games (reinstall Windows?), but I know that you took the long way around instead of doing a manual copy (http://scratchpad.wikia.com/wiki/Illusion_Games_How_to_install#Manual_copy) like described on the wiki. However I realize that it was necessary because you needed the registry keys (asap! :P).

The TheShadow will soon release an updated Registry Fixer, but until then here are the keys, in case it might help somebody:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\illusion\AAEdit]
"INSTALLDIR"="C:\\illusion\\AAMaker\\"
"PRODUCTNAME"="ジンコウガクエン きゃらめいく"
"VERSION"=dword:00000064

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\illusion\AAPlay]
"INSTALLDIR"="C:\\illusion\\AA\\"
"PRODUCTNAME"="ジンコウガクエン"
"VERSION"=dword:00000064...

To guys having trouble installing: Do yourself a favor and stop thinking that you're the only one that ever experienced problems installing these games. Almost every known workaround is already described in the wiki (http://scratchpad.wikia.com/wiki/Artificial_Academy_Technical_Help). It's so few things that you need to know to do it right and all the information is there for you. Save yourself the frustration and spend a few minutes reading it while downloading the game.

i already have the last drivers for my video card, the game just freeze when it starts on the now loading black screen, i already tried everything on the wiki, not to mention that another few things, im not sure if there is something that im missing :cries::yells:

What the...?

Stop asking if there is 3P. There is NO 3P!

1. Many already tried to "force" a 3P, but no one successed
2. Illusion NEVER showed a pic of a 3P and hell, just use you common sense - Why should Illusion add such a difficult feature like 3P (You have to make new animations etc. for it) and never advertise it? That would be plain stupid.


So for now, there is definitly NO 3P. Maybe if we get an expansion.

I have an interesting bug. If I choose the brow/black shoe skin it is ignored by the program in all indoor locations. The boys wear the white/blue skin and the girls the white/green skin. I play with the AA HF patch. Some words regarding the game. The good thing is the editor, although it is rather limited you can get quite good results when creating different girls.
(I made an ex girlfriend of mine who was really selfish and pretty perverted and it matched the original quite well:hehehe:)I just wish there would be more hair colors, body sizes and different boy faces. The bad thing in my opinion is the easy gameplay and the lack of hard achievements. Once a girl likes me she does everything pose I want. The only way to change this is to make myself a fat, dumb, boring and impotent boy who has slightly fewer chances to get the girls. I somehow miss a target to achieve. I also want to fondle my girls to get them in the right mood. Why the hell they didn't implement this in the game anymore. Hell, I think I played more time withe boobs in the editor than with the sex scenes in the game. So I'm a little dissapointed cause the game engine is quite good but they forgot to make it a game. You can hit me now.

That is not a bug. Somebody pointed it out to me that it is part of the culture to take off your shoes and wear school assigned shoes inside.

That would make sense if they would wear the "school" shoes in every school location. But this isn't the matter. In fact they wear "my" shoes on the baseballfield, tennis court, under the tree, on the gym sideway and in the boys changing rooms. They are barefoot at the swimming pool and the Kendo gym which I can understand.

Game runs 100% on my XP Professional SP2 with HF patch & Applocale. As all Illusion games did so far.

I apologize in advance if this has been answered before, but I got the full character maker from a different site, but you can't change the install name (to something non-Unicode like AAMaker;it stays in Japanese characters) and when you do it manually (after it's installed) it causes the maker to stop working. This causes problems when trying to use Illusion Wizard and the latest HF patch..is there another one out there? Is there a fix? Please...I just want to play the game again.:cries:

The error I get when trying to change the name to something in english (and then trying to run LOADER.exe) is CONFIG file is missing (but I checked before doing it and the files are EXACTLY the same!!)
so I change it back, and it works fine! I run Windows XP Professional SP3. When I ran the HF Patch ver.05 it causes the game part to stop working. Illusion Wizzard will not work with an install path that has Unicode letters. I hope this explains more.

Download one of the makers from the first post and see if that works.
I never had any issue changing the install name to something English during the installation process.

It gives you 3 options in installation process; one starts with "M", the other "P", and can't remember the last one, but I still don't have the option to change install name T-T

At one of the install screens you should see a install path. There should be a button next to that lets you change paths. You can use that to install the game to a folder with non japanese text.
I have to redownload my maker, but i will post a screenshot of what I am talking about if somebody doesn't beat me to it.

Year and Class only go up to 9
-edit- Here is a quick save with just enough people to actually get the game to autosave. Just kick the 3 girls out and replace the class with your own.

I believe I know which one you are talking about because you get to browse and choose the install destination (every other illusion game I have is like that) but for this one (the character maker) there was no other button, except for the (N)ext button. Did you get your Character Maker from here?

I did some test. You are getting the M P R screen because you have not uninstalled your current maker. When I uninstalled mine, I got the option to select the install destination.

Fwiw it's possible to run AA on win xp sp2.

It took a couple of trys but i got it working on win xp sp2.

After you download the game. You might need ms gothic font installed. I don't know if its required because i had ms gothic font installed before playing AA. Use a virtual disc emulator like daemon tools to mount the disc 1 & disc 2. I tried to install from there and also tried HF pApploc and had no success. So I Copied & pasted the contents of both disc to my hard drive. After that i installed from there. Installed the AA no disc patch and got it working. Go to setting and re-size the screen to be full screen for your monitor. If you don't an annoying popup before every conversation will happen.

After everything is running fine, delete the files on your hard drive you copied from mounting disc 1 & disc 2. There is no need for them anymore.

You are my HERO!!! I was having errors in Control Panel when trying to uninstall some other Japanese games, so I started manually deleting them from the Programs folder; I thought it deleted it, but I guess not entirely; you helped me out A LOT!!:sweet:

Gave you some rep cuz' this is the SECOND time you've helped me; You deserve it ^^
