So you are mostly gradually switching to a new project, then? Any preliminary details?..

I'm spending a lot of time playing other games, twiddling my thumbs, and being extremely irrritated about the trouble this internet thing is causing me, really. :) Mostly Icewind Dale, along with Monster Tale on the DS today because I was staying off the computer because we were expecting people to come poke at things...

Also doing a fair bit of plot writing for a project that's been vaguely mentioned in the secrets forum but which I can't properly announce because I can't upload anything (grumble grumble grumble). When I have a net connection again, there will be information.

I expect to start the Magical Diary sequel sometime in the next couple of months if nothing else goes wrong.

Hooray Magical Diary woo!!!!!

Cough.

Out of curiosity, when the game is released would you be opposed to me uploading a fandub of the super awesome magical good ending and the evil minion ending? Cause...I really need to dub this whole thing.

Cool. If all goes well it might add some views for the project! And give me and my friends something cool to do. XD

Do we leave bugs we find here? I found a bit of an awkward sentence, when studying Internal Affairs. It says your mother "created" a duke, but I think something along the lines of "appointed" or "crowned" would be better. Otherwise I feel like it sounds as if your mother made a man out of thin air. I'm also not positive if it means your mother's brother, or Countess Nix's.
Version: 0.5.57
Here is a picture of the screen that I believe has awkward dialogue.

I love the game so much, Hanako and Spiky! I wasn't sure what to expect as I began testing, but it's gorgeous. I'm a huge Princess Maker fan, but I was curious to see how this panned out; if it would feel similar or different. I am happy to say it has a very unique feel to it! All the stats and events take getting used to, but I love the theme and feel of it so far. The music, artwork, and writing is gorgeous as well.

While there may be nuances I'm not quite getting as this isn't a phrasing I generally use, 'created' is valid terminology - google the phrase "created a duke". One of the meanings of 'create' in a dictionary is to invest with a new title, office, or rank, and it's often used in the royal context.

Basically, it's me being intentionally highfalutin' in my language. :)

Hm. I've just had a look at Oki's 'missing simple stuff' thread and had a look at my own checklist, just to see what I've missed. I remember fighting (and winning) a civil war in about three of my games, averting it by diplomacy twice, but 'faced a civil war?' is not listed as being achieved on my checklist.

In case it matters, I did this on a much earlier version of the game (on about February 21st). I'll try and have another go later this week and see if I can get it to appear.

Okay, I think this is a bug.

I found one of my early save states (week 26) and proceeded to fight and win the civil war, but the 'faced a civil war' achievement flag didn't appear.

I then tried again from the beginning and deliberately triggered a civil war, but it still hasn't come up.

Having the same problem Yuki is. It worked when I went back and retroactively did anything else, but I did a brand new evil minion play through and still couldn't trigger the actual checklist item.
I've been here so long even Hanako is sick of me

I've fixed the civil war so it'll set the checklist entry properly in the newest beta (0.5.63). (The checklist entry will be set when Elodie first learns about the civil war.)

Working on a possible logo design: any feedback?

(Coronation will be coming soon, I'll post an update when it's in. Title screen is still in limbo ATM.)
