  • You know...one thing that never gets completed fast enough is the uncensoring....

    Though I'm sure all modders have their own priorities, if there is one thing that bugs me more then anything its that. I for one will use this opportunity to start uncensoring games from now on. Welcome you're newest modder.

    P.S.

    I've never understood why Japanese do this in the first place though I remember it has something to do with pubic hair???

          This is one of the more stupids things of the game: if you implement something new in a game, do it full and the best you can, if not, don´t do it. It is like The Sims, in wich the "woohoo" was censured (obvious: it´s a mainstream game for all ages).
          But this is not an all-ages games, so, don´t give the chance to have homo characters/relationship, and then...fade to black.
          But, it is for the japanese market, so...perhaps I still don´t catch japanese moral and laws about all involving explicit sex or something, or the real tastes of the "standard" otaku buyer... (I am relatively new to this fantastic world and since few weeks didn´t even know the meaning of "yaoi" ).

          In general I like the game, the gameplay, the artwork, the H-Scenes are awesome, a great work, but some of my wishes for this game ( maybe some future mods from our GREAT modders in HF ) are :

          - The clothing issue: we want MORE (tho, I think Illusion has reserved something about this to earn more Yens with an expansion, don´t you think ? )
          - More customization for the charas ( face, nose, chin, colours...you know)
          - Implementation of Yaoi-sex-interaction: I wanna see my boys in action !!!! lol
          -3p action
          - The movement of the Player... free move ala AG3 is, for me, better than Pick-and-see-your PC-running

          -And BTW, uncensors and translation, hehe

          Well, these are only some impressions after been playing the game (and enjoying it) for two days.

          I wanna thanks to the ppl who made the torrents, and all the modders that are nowadays working hard on the future mods

          Comment


          • Downloaded, installed, worked like a charm!
            Just accomplished my first yuri H sequence and loved it!
            The lack of interaction during the H is kinda disappointing, but it's not so bad.
            I'm aching for a translation patch, though. When someone talks to me, I only pick the blue icon and, because of that, I'm constantly being shooed from a room. (I don't know, don't ask)
            Anyways, the game is fun! Thanks to all the involved on providing the downloads, modding, patching and whatnot. You guys rock!
            Btw, is there a skin tan mod? I'd love to have a darker tan option.

                • technical yet probably fail question to ask, but my game doesn't seem to recognise the japanese font. I'm on windows 7 with Japanese locale settings. Is there anything I mite be missing?

                  Comment


                  • Has anyone seen anal sex is this game? I haven't. But one of the girls mentioned "アナル" after a H session.

                    Comment


                    • This game is a lot of fun. They had some important technical improvements too. One is the png file for character which make the sharing of characters very easy. That's very good compare to AG3 character folder and copy a lot of things... But they can work more on clothes staff which is going to be interesting.
                      I haven't found some advanced H modes tho. It's great to have so many characters at once and interact with all. I think they can probably unlock the total number of people in the class, maybe in one of the later versions.
                      The characters look like got some advantage from various sources, tho the normal 2D environment seems a bit boring but the 3D H scene and communication scene have very good and realistic detail of characters. Its also fun to see so many different characteristics. But I haven't figured out how to get the relationship work and how to communicate with someone whose not attracted by my characteristics at all. Should be a pain but maybe fun.
                      I really like the property to change size of a person. If someone figure out how to set those parameters directly we can probably see some giants in the school...
                      One question is I've got very good relationship with someone and h for many times... but can't find the real over climax....... Maybe some people don't have one favorite position.... for this girl I found 4 sets of position, each set is made of 4 choice and each choice has 4 positions. That's 64, I guess according to the arrangement of panel there could be more...

                      • You may have set a character to have low sensitivity and another character set as more a "taking" kind of character rather than a giving.

                        • Initial Review

                          Graphics

                          1. Character Models
                          The character models in this game are fantastic and varied. The varied body types add a lot to the replayability and interest level. Being able to create so many different variations of short, tall, skinny, or chubby girls and guys is one of the best features of this game. I love the cell shaded textures as well, although some prefer a more realistic look, and are no doubt waiting for a good realistic texture mod.

                          2. Scenes
                          The first thing to say here is this game has two modes. The second mode is only used in H Scenes and conversations, which I'll get to in just a second. The first mode consists of a 2d background image with a fixed perspective camera with characters moving around certain 3d objects (like desks) in front of the 2d background. This also means that the game is divided into many discrete 'rooms' or 'scenes', with transitions handled by fading in and out. Overall I like the tradeoff here- you have plenty of distinct, well-drawn environments in which to interact, and because public rooms like hallways are included as well, all you really lose is the ability to move your camera around the environment. The 3d objects in this mode are not rendered at a high level because its possible to have all 25 students on screen at the same time.

                          The highly rendered mode is exclusive to interaction scenes; either H scenes or conversations. The character you are interacting with is superimposed in high quality over a slightly transparent background. The camera here is also fully controllable (at least in H Scenes). If you think you lost anything by not having full 3d environments, then let me be the first to tell you that *THIS* is where that tradeoff pays dividends graphically. As I previously mentioned, the character models in this mode are exceptional in their quality and diversity, and it's clear that the developers paid a lot of attention to synching up and detailing the animations for each size and body type - they look GREAT! The first time I got into an H scene I couldn't believe how 'into it' the girl was. I don't miss the 3d items at all - most of the time they just got in the way of where I wanted to put my camera anyways. I hated in AG3 when the discarded items of clothing blocked me getting a great view from beneath.

                          3. Customizability
                          Most of the options for graphical customization of the characters should be familiar to those who've played previous Illusion games. Some of the options have been simplified from sliders into multiple choice options, and colors have been simplified from full customization to a representative choice of colors and tones. Some extremely important options are still fully customizable via slider, like breast size. I think they've done a good job of balancing ease of use vs diversification here - its a lot easier to hit random and then go change one or two items to have a character you like now, instead of 80% of the time ending up with some weird character that has inhuman features.

                          Of note are the additions of tastes in traits of the opposite sex, which plays heavily into the more socially oriented gameplay, as well as improved hair options over previous titles, the ability to customize male characters as well, and last but not least being able to choose a character's sexual preference.

                          Clothing customizations have also been simplified as well as greatly reduced compared to character creation in other Illusion titles. Each character wears a school uniform, and customization options are limited to merely switching between several pre-set colors for each piece of clothing. Those players who enjoy re-creating established characters from anime or manga will certainly be very disappointed with their options here. Personally, I just wish clothing colorizations could be applied to all girls or all boys at the same time. Its very tedious to do this manually for each of 25 characters so that they all appear to be wearing the same school's uniform.

                          Gameplay

                          1. General
                          As this is a game of 'rooms' or 'scenes', your movement and interaction options focus more on the destination rather than the journey - you choose what scene you want to visit, or which character you want to travel to and the game completes this action for you. I think this system fits really well with the rest of the game - the tedious or obstructing parts of gameplay from other titles have been streamlined or entirely removed. Your basic gameplay consists of visiting rooms or people and then interacting with a chosen person.

                          The framework of the game itself is a typical school day. You start each day in the morning, and have the option to choose to play any character in your class for that day. Play proceeds similar to a play with multiple 'Acts' that represent the social opportunities during a given school day, in this case your acts seem to be 'Before school', 'Between class', 'Lunch', 'Club Activity, and 'After school'. You are literally playing through the breaks in the school day while actual classes and such are skipped over with a cursory scene change. At the end of the day you can save your game, choose your uniform for the next day, and then stop playing or continue on to the next day.

                          2. H Scenes
                          H Scene gameplay is simplified compared to other games. There is no sort of mini-game feel here for me - some players will like that, and some won't. There are options to choose different positions, as well as multiple varieties of each position to choose from. These can be chosen manually and 'locked in', or left to cycle through on their own. The options available seem to be tied into your relationship level with your partner- a higher level allows more choices. Other than clicking between positions, the only other interactive option the player has is to make either of the characters climax on command. Certain characters are able to have better orgasms from certain positions, so there is a small element of exploration involved in finding those. Whether the number or intensity of orgasms a character experiences has any effect on other gameplay elements isn't obvious, if it does affect them at all. Overall I would say that the H scene experience seems to be more of a reward in this game, unlike some games where it offers unique gameplay unto itself.

                          3. Macro gameplay
                          Because of the wealth of social interactions and the ability to play as a different character in a group of up to 25 people this title has an interesting 'social sandbox' dynamic not present in other titles. In addition to sitting by and watching passively as classmates form relationships around you, you can jump from person to person each day and foster or doom these relationships like some sort of benevolent or vengeful Aphrodite . In fact, the chief challenge dynamic of the game seems to be pairing up two characters who are seemingly polar opposites and building their relationship to a high level. In these aspects, the depth of gameplay here is reminiscent of a 'Sim' game - you have all the options at your disposal to either create beautiful romance, or completely destroy the happiness of another, or any level in between. This type of unique to the genre gameplay is no doubt going to create a group of diehard fans that enjoy this sort of thing, and possibly bring in a slightly different (yet still thoroughly perverted ) type of audience.

                          Dialogue & Interaction

                          While I certainly can't give a rating to the quality and diversity of the dialogue because I can't read or speak Japanese, there is a lot to say about the interactions in the game. Interacting with classmates is the 'meat' of the gameplay here, and a lot of attention has been paid to adding depth in this area. When you approach a classmate you are presented with a wealth of interaction options ranging from 'How are you?' to 'Let's go back to my place and fuck' to 'Let's fight!'. Whether your choice generates a positive or neutral or negative response depends on your current relationship level as well as choices made in character customization- your traits and preferences and theirs. Discovering where you have common ground with a classmate and then building those common likes or dislikes into a friendship or relationship is a different subset of choices for each character, and thus each one feels more like an accomplishment than in previous games that distilled social interaction down to 'Do X 10 times then do Y 10 times then do Z 5 times'.

                          The other fresh social complication arises from having multiple characters of each sex in each class. In AG3 we had five characters competing with each other for the affections of one. In AA each classmate develops their own web of relationships, and this creates a lot of serendipitous gameplay situations that tend to complicate your best laid (get it? ) plans! Love triangles create a lot of gameplay opportunities, especially because we are not limited to playing a single character anymore.

                          The depth created by the character social customizations and indepedent personalities really is the greatest strength of this game, and what I personally think is the defining characteristic of the game itself. If what I've described in the previous two paragraphs interests you at all, then you will no doubt enjoy playing Artificial Academy. If you find the social exploration and discovery to be tedious, then I would suggest skipping this one, or at least make yourself a class full of cloned Cherry 2000 personalities that will be perfectly suited to you and easy to figure out.

                          • just took a bit of time reading through most of the post on this thread (most as in using my limited English reading skills lol). I saw a few people having the same problem, where the textbox prints out garbage rather than Japanese. I didn't really catch a solution to that though and am a bit impatient. Those who had this problem solved and are still tuning into this thread, or anyone that could help, would you giving out a hand? thx =).

                            I'm not that great with computers, so the only info I can give so far is that I'm on Windows7 with a regional settings set to Japanese locale. I also have JP IME installed. This has been working for most of the game's I've been playing so far, but it fails to show for this one........

                            • When I played this I got corrupted looking text on savegame names and conversation text and also in other places even though I set non unicode to japanese.
                              The solution that I found on the wikia page..
                              set format in regional settings from control panel to japanese, worked for me, in case other people have had the same issue and for some reason not checked wikia

                              • I don't know anything about programming.... but i am more than willing to help with the machine translating. Give me a long sheet of text, i'll run it through something like google translate, take the garble that comes out, hit it until it makes some sense and throw it back to be programmed.

                                i don't know if this will help cut down the strain on translators... cus I have no idea what it entails... but I am ready to volunteer some time.
