Re: This is a really silly game to speedrun

Oh, I didn't think about branching saves. Obviously reloading pre-existing saves would be banned (typical any% rules- start from a fresh file), but I'm not sure about how in-game saves should be handled. I think reloading saves created during the current game should be alright- it's just another kin...

Re: Solving Mysteries - General Hints / Tips / Strategy

I have to say that I don't think I, as a player, would have ever figured that solution out without outside help. Three established gameplay conventions jump to mind that would in fact point me directly away from that solution: a) In almost every other case in the game, getting the perp to confess an...

Re: Solving Mysteries - General Hints / Tips / Strategy

I usually get the girl to crack and promise to stop just fine, it's stomping out all the extra copies in time afterward that causes problems. I assume I'm screwing up somewhere and severing the only lead on the last copy, I'm just not sure when or where. When the girls panic and wipe their phones wh...

Re: Solving Mysteries - General Hints / Tips / Strategy

Ugh, I hate that Suspicious Similarity variant. Here's how I usually handle that case (provided the school isn't currently devolving into a gambling ring or something): 1) Search the classroom above all else when the case first appears; the case will close early with a massive reputation hit if you ...

Re: The Cast of Minions - Character Discussion

Thoughts on the girls, finally, spoilers abounding. I like Vonne a lot for her devotion and imagination. I found her route a lot of fun to play, and it was nice to have such an old friend who wasn't a jerk. I did her route first because she's so obviously in love with you that I felt guilty doing ot...

Re: Black Closet - Beta Testing / Discount Copies

I think the unusual names are cool (very pretentious- after all, the case right after that included a girl named Queen!), Kimberlyy just looks like that particular kind of misspelling that's probably a typo. If it had been something like Kimberlyey I probably wouldn't even have noticed. I like the G...

Re: This is a really silly game to speedrun

Two additional thoughts. One, Lumen wasn't actually that much harder. (any% is also now down to 3:26, since my computer was running better that day) Thought two is that while this obviously makes a really terrible speedrunning game (even if there are at least three people who have run it now...), I ...

Re: Black Closet - Beta Testing / Discount Copies

Is there supposed to be a student named "Kimberlyy" or is that a typo?

Re: Black Closet - Beta Testing / Discount Copies

The No Handbills case variant with the bug popped up again and I got screenshots this time. Ok, so I got the case with Ericka as the victim, and the first thing I did was stake out the area: http://i.imgur.com/j2axj2h.jpg As you can see, the result was ambiguous and it gave me the failure text like ...

Re: Solving Mysteries - General Hints / Tips / Strategy

So, for the explosion variant of Shock to the System, if you successfully guard the location on the specified date and nothing happens, then what are you supposed to do? Just keep guarding until they give up? No matter what I do I don't seem to get the option to punish the organizer, and if I stop g...

Re: Black Closet - Beta Testing / Discount Copies

That's what I meant- she's putting up the flyers, but the text says something along the lines of "you hear footsteps, but you don't see anyone." But I see her making the check against me anyway. It looks like an interface spoiler. If I see it happen again I'll take better notes. edit: Since I just r...

Re: Black Closet - Beta Testing / Discount Copies

In No Handbills, No Flyers, I've noticed that if the girl makes the whole thing up for attention, then when guarding the area it shows the check being made against the "victim," even if the text indicates that the minion watching the area doesn't see anyone spesific. Is the question result that open...
