Yeah, looks good.

Re: Black Closet - Alpha Testing / Discount Copies

I don't know if this is a bug or not, but using the "software" video driver turns everything blue on my Mac. If I use auto it is fine.

I accidentally switched and was quite puzzled for a while.

Re: Black Closet - Alpha Testing / Discount Copies

IIRC my headlogic for that was that if someone claims that their secret club is a poetry club, they might be lying, so you need to go confirm that offscreen. (There's always the possibility of a case being added where they really ARE lying about it!) But if you find the secret club meeting and see ...

Re: Black Closet - Alpha Testing / Discount Copies

There are a number of cases that won't close until the next day - it usually has to do with slightly different storylines and (in my headspace) an off-screen action taking place. Like, when you get the good student to agree to study with the bad student, the case doesn't close until the next mornin...

Re: Black Closet - Alpha Testing / Discount Copies

I've recently started playing on "High Stakes", and I'm wondering if in addition to the lack of altered die rolls, do the stats of the targets get higher? I've started out a few games and wound up with rooms at 50 visibility and 50 cover in the first week or two. Some characters seem to have noticea...

Yep, you're correct. Sorry about that.

Re: Black Closet - Alpha Testing / Discount Copies

Regarding jukebox. Sorry if I've never commented on the music, but I've played with no sound for 99.9% of my play time. Approximately. :wink: Love the music for this game. Perfect. Also uncovered another small bug. For most cases if you undertake an action that solves the case, all other pending ac...

Re: Black Closet - Alpha Testing / Discount Copies

Just wanted to say thanks for this game, because anything else would be rude. I've been busy playing, which of course is the greatest compliment of all. :wink: ... If I could choose, I would have more romance. I applaud the slightly naughty turns the actual romances take, even if they sometimes com...

Re: Solving Mysteries - General Hints / Tips / Strategy

My least favorite case to deal with is shock to the system. The deadlines can be unexpectedly harsh, and you never know if you're dealing with a poetry club or bombs strapped to the bottom of desks. I've had quite a few -17 karma, -15 reputation on these.

Re: Black Closet - Alpha Testing / Discount Copies

So, I've posted about the minions and Elsa in other threads, and I just want to leave some general feedback here. I found Hanako games through Summer Session last year, because I was looking for dating sims at the time. I really liked Hanako's writing through that game, and it made me want to play m...

Re: Elsa

What do you think of your protagonist? How do you feel about this method of directing conversations (with everything being a choice), as opposed to the more standard way of interacting with people in most VN/sims? I'll answer the second question first. I like how the game is set up. It doesn't feel...

Re: The Cast of Minions - Character Discussion

I've played through a few times. Am starting to win more consistently, and get accepted to better colleges . So, my initial thoughts on minions below. Keep in mind, I'm not super familiar with either the genre or conventions that Hanako may be playing with. Althea is a complete dirtbag. Cocky, lazy,...

That's an awful broad definition of "seduce" you have there! :lol:

Re: Black Closet - Alpha Testing / Discount Copies

Not really anything specific - we're mostly concerned with bugs and unexpected behaviors in things we HAVEN'T remembered to intentionally test recently. :) Probably as I get better, I'm getting closer to the "relentlessly tested parts." I'll try to start playing like a newbie/get some members of my...
