The solution to all your Japanese fangames troubles are in this very thread! Links provided.
Implying you read it carefully and do stuff consequtively. Otherwise, it's your problem.
Still post here if something doesn't work.

There we go:

1) Make sure you have Japanese language installed on your system - what the hell are you doing in /fg/ without that anyway?..
In case you're still here w/out it:
But you most probably have it already.

2) Install Applocale - it works both for XP and Win7.
There is also a patch and some register keys on the same page, install'em all. Well, when you read that page, it's all pretty obvious.

You should play Maidnaut, best fangame ever.

Attention members!

Some new rules to the /fg/ Board are in effect immediately:

1. You will not use another Fangame Creator's materials without his written consent. This applies both to Uboachan Fangames and foreign Fangames.

2. Games are to go through considerable developmental progress before being posted. Members looking for help will post in the appropriate threads. Do remember we have an idea thread, too.

Threads who do not fall under these rules will be either Deleted or Locked, to the Moderation Team's discretion.

Note that while these rules are in effect immediately, they will not be applied retroactively.

Thank you for your time and enjoy your stay.


This is more of a request than a rule, but please don't bump months old threads asking about progress. The OP will post about progress if (or if you're lucky, when) any is made.

What the fuck happened to fangames in general?

Back when Yume 2kki and .flow were released and continuously updated (2kki will die soon, lol moved on to other stuff) they were very clearly "Yume Nikki fangames".

They had pratically the same style of gameplay (with some fringe cases in some areas or events like the abandoned streets in .flow) and never shied away their influence.
They had a unique aspect about them most of the time, but they still had some similiar gameplay.

Now we have fangames literally based off other fangames (can i even call them that?), stuff like Hell Diary.
I was ranting about this with a friend and he said:

"most people just make plain "horror" games now, walking sims with artsy baitsy aspects"

I guess he was sort of right, not that i hate today's lack of actual fangames, or do i hate today's "fangames" that are actually thinly veiled "horror" games that literally have almost nothing to do with Yume Nikki no sigo porque hablar Inglés es muy difícil putos trolls que violáron el mado check y dubs.

I am wondering what happened to Dream vs Dream. I've been following the project for 5-6 years, and wondering what the issue is. Updates suddenly stopped and the official website/forums suddenly went down without an explanation. If it's life or anything, i can understand. Unfortunately, a lot of good projects don't survive. It would make me feel a bit better if someone could come forward and state the situation with the game.


Programmer didn't want to work on it anymore.


That's a shame. I guess it was fun while it lasted.

Thought I'd make a dedicated thread for this game. If there's already a thread for it let me know, but I couldn't find one.

Anyway I hated this game at first and thought it was going to be another boring clone, but it turns out to be really well-made with a pretty neat mystery at the core and some of the best events I've seen. It also updated recently too. For someone who was growing tired of most new fangames, this one really surprised me.

I swear this was one of the best events I've seen in any fangame. The entire sequence stunned me.


File: 1501483022585.png (Spoiler Image, 14.03 KB, 640x480, headphones wake up.png)

my favorite part about it is the implied connection it makes between nire's somniphobia and her headphones - she sleeps, horrifying things happen as a result, the nightmare only ends when she dons the headphones.

in most games it'd just be a case of gratuitous 3dg3 for the sake of gratuitous 3dg3; here, it actually helps to flesh out the narrative while keeping it ambiguous enough for fan theories.


File: 1505800431521.png (16.22 KB, 384x326, welp.png)

Has anyone else encountered this? Her headphones are on sideways and she refuses to do anything. She won't sleep or sit at the desk, she just shakes her head.


What where you doing when that happened?


I had just woken her up from visiting the Mansion for the first time.

Hi. I'm making a YN fangame titled "ADHD: A Yume Nikki Fangame".
I'm having a little bit of trouble figuring out how the "Wake up" mechanic works.
I'll be looking for the solution right after I have posted this.

>I need someone to make some music for me
No one is going to do that. Sorry. Creating game music is difficult, it takes commitment, and no one really has any motivation to do your work for you. If your style of music doesn't fit the game then work out a style that does. This is your game, you should be the one to make it. Please do not make a habit of coming to us whenever there is a problem, do your own research and work.


There are lots of websites that offer wonderful music free to use for any kind of projects and they are pretty good even for commercial games.
Do you have a title screen for it? Just curious.


So will this have "effects" or something similar?

FOG is my Yume Nikki fangame, made with RPG Maker 2003. This traditional Yume Nikki fangame has more upbeat themes and equippable Perks that can be collected along with Effects.


You should not need the RPG Maker 2003 RTP to play, but if it asks for it, download that too.

The current version is 0.0.2. Although a very preliminary version with 1 character (Leon) and just a few effects, all 12 Nexus doors are available.

Feel free to monetize videos and streams of this game. (Usage rules have just been updated.)

Forgive me if I'm misunderstanding, but doesn't that mean that, by your definition, about 95% of the fangames on /fg/ shouldn't be called "fangames" because they aren't technically related to YN at all?
Of course, I'm probably just misreading what you wrote, but if not, that just seems unfair.

Now about FOG. I'd say just do what you think works best for it. Don't overthink shit, especially not the story. Just ask "does this work with the rest of the game" and if so, I'd say go with it.
I will say, a lot of recent fangames in my opinion tend to fuck up when it comes to "story". YN was certainly not clear, so I don't know why so many modern games are obsessed with creating an overly complicated story which can only be told through the same things YN already did for some reason. Things don't have to be so deep.

A lot of recent fangames later on in their lives tend to switch over to /og/ even though they're still essentially the same thing as YN. I still consider The Other Line to be a YN fangame even if the author doesn't. I feel it's just a cheap and lazy way at trying to make oneself known, like trying to take credit for YN by saying "This is my Dream Diary game, if you'll notice, my protag doesn't actually dream even though the principles are similar, so it's an entirely different game. Pay me." LISA: The First I'd even consider a YN fangame, which also spawned an RPG series that made the guy rich and now he's in hiding, but it just feels iffy because it's basically just YN but with the rape themes made explicit. Remember who you are and what you came from, etc.


>I don't know why so many modern games are obsessed with creating an overly complicated story which can only be told through the same things YN already did for some reason.
Egotism. People's dicks get hard when they think about how they made some fanfictiony epic that people suck them off for.


LISA was still far more inspired by Earthbound and the author readily admits that. If we follow your logic YN is a ripoff of Mother 1 and LSD Dream Emulator.

I won't be forgetting my Yume Nikki/LcdDem roots; that's for sure. dreamFOG will still have Effects, despite being a semi-linear puzzle game.

I'll probably only throw in a few storyline twists and ending branches, but it'll basically just be the same old FOG, only redesigned for modern/core gaming and featuring two more Dreamers. It certainly won't have a bizarre tree of story branches or relationship meters like in a visual novel or a dating sim, and it most certainly won't have red herrings or "Guide Dang It" moments.

Interestingly enough, I'm actually not too familiar with Mother/EarthBound. Zelda is a much bigger inspiration for dreamFOG.


The art style is amazing! Can't wait to see where this goes!

yo so people are still making fangames right?? Like it wouldn't be weird if i made one in the current year??? I already have some sprites, npcs and uhhh ideas i guess.

umm one of my big ideas is to not have the MC be a hikikomori. which has probably been done before but idk i guess i'll do it as well or uhhh yea.

and i have a general theme for the game in place so yea that will work out . maybe. .

also idk if im posting this in the right place, im just really tired so i'll delete it if it is , in, ,,,the,, ,, , ,wrong ,, place?

I like the colour scheme. If you think s?he is too bland you could do a shirt pattern or an unzipped hoodie or something, but personally I think it looks fine.


>Also has there been a fangame where gloves were used as a the murder thing?
iirc, Mikan Muzou sorta did.


oh yea Mikan Muzou had the brass knuckles. uhh i might just make the mechanics of the gloves different from the brass knuckles or come up with something new entirely.

i'll wait and see i suppose haha


It's not bland at all, it has shading and colors that are okay, which is more than we can expect from most, but it's a mado recolor. A lot of people don't like those and even make a moral issue out of them.


>i could post spritesheets but im paranoid af for some reason?
As long as it's not stolen stuff it should be fine and we have seen a lot of things.

Hey folks, it's me again! And I'm here to show you what was originally a creative draft for what would have been my Dream Diary Jam entry in June.

It is:
-A Yume Nikki styled game, more along the lines of Nightmare Castle than Hell Diary or Amihailu in Dreamland

-Started development today, on top of what was originally supposed to be the PMD Music update to AiD.

-Stars another Dugashoba girl, Maho!

-Tiniest game yet, probably going to be a WHOPPING 10MB when a build releases (if that)

-Cute and useful effects!

-The same setting as Nightmare Castle and the other games in the series

It's time for a new effect or two, yeah? I'm also adding to the Conjurer effect. Its description says 'summon the friendly ghost' but I don't think a whole bunch of players realized where the ghost actually appeared. Or maybe they did? Either way, it needs some improvements

File: 1502376018391.gif (36.6 KB, 320x240, DUGA6.gif)

Version 0.01 is out!

Changes in this version:
+Added 2 new effects
+Expanded each of the nexus worlds to one or two extra layers of explorable depth
+New lighting and NPCs
+New Music
+New characters in the syllable table
*Changed STAIR music
*Fixed a bug where leaving the shooting range would cause the song to reset
*Changed the 'Conjurer' NPC to reflect the ghost it summons
*Added the ability of the 'Conjurer' effect to summon the friendly ghost with the 'A' key

You can get it here -> http://www.mediafire.com/file/2c5am2xevxer6zg/DuGaSHoBa_001.exe


I played it for around 20 minutes and I think I probably found most of the locations. I got some thoughts and questions.

-How do you actually use effects, if you can? I tried pressing every single keyboard button, and nothing. My poor pistol itches for action.

-Speaking of effects, I think they should change the sprite more. The TV-Idol got it right, the Scout and Conjurer is honestly pretty dull as far as effects go. Maybe they are more exciting if they have some use, but since I can't find the key for it, right now I can only judge by the visual change.

-The music makes it feel like a fighting game in some areas. For example the hub music is exactly what you would hear on the title screen of old fighting games. If the mood you want is that, I guess mission accomplished. Personally I think a mellower bgs would fit better in many areas.

-The outdoors areas are great, more of those.

-The indoors areas are often kinda samey, put more windows, strange machines, weird furniture and stuff in them. Try to make them less "corridory" and less square. Some of them are good though, mostly the ones with a identifiable theme, like the one with the flames for example.


The effects get used with the 'A' key. Keyboard layouts for different languages might F that up a bit though, so it's whatever key is mapped to the 'X' button in your Ace install.

Sick Mind generates this error message when opened, help please


It's a problem with the executable - RPG_RT, I believe. Just copy the executable from a fangame that works, and paste the copied executable into the sickmind folder. This will replace the broken executable with a functional executable if you didn't stick your dick in a toaster.
