GBF x Yume Nikki event when


It's as 'official' as anything else


sorry for the off-topic bump, but what is this email service called?
i ended up losing my password and registrations were closed for a long time, i completely forgot about it until now.


openmailbox, but I don't recommend it anymore. I chose it because it had an non-autistic html interface and imap but they cancelled it unless you pay and redesigned the interface to look more smartphone-ish, and it sucks balls.
Still no reply from kiki, damn, I wanted him to authorize my official onaholes.


i see, thank you anyway.

Is there ever a point in yume nikki where you feel kikyama is trying too hard to scare you? Namely with the body horror section or the ghost section. I feel that yn works best when its spooks are more subtle ie the mall area where there are lifeless humans around they dont do anything scary but them being motionless is where the real scare is.

It would also probably be better if you never fight the main, "villain". That keeps them more threatening. Only fighting off grotesque spiders, bats and stuff like that adds to the game play and keeps you on your toes, while not subtracting from the main threat

>If somebody really tried I think they'd be able to pull off something scary in an rpg.
Honestly, I believe some well-done graphics could do wonders, though that's asking way too much, specially from a medium such as rpgmaker where authors rarely aren't amateurs.

Something that really bothers me is that these modern "horror games" seem too cartoon-ish and therefore not scary. The best 2D horror games I played relied on the fact that the closest to reality something looks, the creepier it gets. The Uncanny Valley is your best friend, followed by a fitting OST. Ao Oni had "scary" moments because it relied on jumpscares, but once you looked at the demon's design, it is just hilariously stupid and comical, even. However, look at any of H.R. Giger's works and you can't say they are comical at all. They're unnerving; maybe not scary, but they do touch the primal sense of "this isn't right, at all". And that's the heart of horror, what I meant with "real horror" some posts back: the sensation that you are against something opposed to reality. That you are dealing with something that breaks all common sense, strips you off your security and leaves you stark naked in the dark.

Maybe this babble is a bit too much but that's the closest I can come by putting into words what I think horror should be.

Thought you guys would enjoy this dreamy collection.

Here are a bunch of remixed songs from Yume Nikki, fully packed with different arrangements of the popular sound effects and background music. Great music to listen while drifting off into sleep… :)

Also make sure to listen to Track 8 - Disregard first. Best track ever.

Necrobumping is bad enough on it's own, but Jesus Christ.
"Bump" doesn't fucking contribute anything to the thread topic. lurkmoar.

Anybody have this?



Nice necro.

I think the OP is referring to the 24 Effects album. It's available on youtube if you want to listen to it.

Okay, so this may seem a little weird to you guys, but I think this is weird. It seems that everyone says that only Madotsuki, Monoe and Monoko have official names and that makes sense. Madotsuki's name is seen directly in the menu, while Monoe and Monoko's names are found from their picture files. Why? Why does it say that? I have RPG Maker 2003 myself, and I've looked through the files of Yume Nikki. Everything has names! The sound effects! The maps! The pictures! Even the events! Why hasn't ANYONE even translated them? They're right there, all in the text. Why hasn't anyone tried to do this? The game has been out for over 10 years. I would do this myself but I don't have the Japanese version of RPG Maker, so everything is gibberish. Just, if things have official names, why use fan ones? I just wish someone would do this. Thank you.

Please don't put your actual email in the email tab :(


Oh, apologies about that. And I would do all this stuff myself, it's just RPG Maker displays everything as gibberish, so sorry if it seems like I'm being lazy. I wonder if we'll every know who KIKIYAMA is? I'm fine with how the game is, and I don't think Yume Nikki needs another update, but I do wish we at least knew who KIKIYAMA is. But then again, maybe it's just best the way things are right now.


>it's just RPG Maker displays everything as gibberish
Literally everything is here, what's so hard of downloading something? https://my.mixtape.moe/lgxrbs.7z


Thank you!! I'll be sure to check that out when I have the time.

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.


Moved to >>>/fg/12511.

I just wanted to let you all know that I'm going to make a Yume Nikki comic pretty soon in celebration of 20 years since it last updated, Oct 1 2007! I made the cover and here it is!! What do you all think, let me know!

Sorry I meant 10. Thank you for finding that!

>20 years
God, you almost gave me a mini heart attack with that. For a second it made me wonder what was wrong with my memory.

I agree with >>6761 that the newbie art is going to repel people, but if you like YN why not. If at least you have fun with it then it is worth it, and from what I've observed, Yume Nikki is usually a great influence in people's artistic path. Go for it.

What approach are you going to give, if it's not too much to ask? With/without storyline, comical, surreal, 2d4u philosophical ramblings, …?


Well, I'm thinking it will be like the manga, how it's mostly from Madotsuki's POV, but I will give lots of other characters the spotlight too. The story is going to be my theories of the game, like how Madotsuki needs to find the effects or else she will be trapped in her dream world forever. I imagine the people who are helping Madotsuki are Masada, Poniko, Mars-San, Mafurako, Monoko, Monoe, and Kamakurako. But then there are the characters who are essentially trying to forbid Madotsuki from leaving, like Uboa, Takofuusen, FACE, Kyuu-Kyuu kun, and the torinigen. Everyone else are people who were also trapped in the dream world. They all tried to get the effects but didn't and now they are stuck there. I also accept the theory that Madotsuki was raped.

Hey /yn/, I've been thinking, what is it about stuff like yume nikki that gives it that extra charm or appeal? There isn't much characterization with the MC herself and there isn't enough story to even be coherent. Then why is it so popular?

>And really well done on a technical level, even if it doesn't look like it.

it's literally an RPG maker game you bullshitter


That abuses the engine to accomplish things it was never designed for.


Walking and adding items to the inventory that change the look of your sprite?


For me, it's the fact that the game is a very abstract and enigmatic approach to something that interests me–how our mind processes the shit we go through outside of the conscious processing and how that affects us in making our decisions. Dreams are a major place we do that subconscious processing. Whether it's processing mundane things like events at school or media we consume, or something much more significant like abuse, social anxiety, or feelings of despair, dreams impact us in ways we can't explain or fully realize. We can't even remember them completely. And we don't know how we keep the terrible things inside of us hidden from our "active mind" in the background. It's just there keeping us sane until we let that out.

That's why I like Yume Nikki. It reminds me of things I wished couldn't be remembered and it fills me with emotions I didn't know existed in me. It's an experience every time I enter its world and for that it's my favorite game.


Same could be said about any piece of fiction, really.

Didn't know there was a spanish YN community, did they release any good fangames?


One of them released a fangame named Glemsomhet. They were also working on a co-op fangame named Diario de Las 7 Lunas (The Seven Moons Diary), but from what I remember they lacked members and couldn't get too far and it was an on-and-off thing (mind you, this was back in 2013, they may be working again on it right now). Honestly, I'd welcome it, we have already too many shitty fangames in english and japanese so some fresh ideas from outside these stagnant circles would be pretty cool.


>a fangame named Glemsomhet
Wasn't that cancelled literally two days ago?


Googling that 7 lunas thing gives me nothing, I tried hard, only thing I found is a forum thread in beanspeak from 2014 that I believe is somewhat related, but it doesn't tell me much either, I only know the protagonist is named "Luna". In four years I'm sure they made some progress.
Can anyone provide sauce?

Oh, was it? Didn't know. There it goes, then.

Honestly, can't tell for sure. Back then most of the people "working" on it seemed to be "the idea guy" rather than somebody who could draw, compose or map (since there are only a few tilesets and sprites around). As for how they're doing now, well, they don't seem to be posting the progress anywhere so I can't say for sure.

has anybody gotten this error before? I have no idea what it means


also have to add that this happens every time i try to go the FC world and i've deleted, redownloaded, and replayed the game more than once only to have it happen again afterwards. What the hell?


Leave one effect behind in the nexus, that will probably fix it.

What got you into Yume Nikki? How did you discover it?

He was and I assume is still is a heavy TV Tropes user, he found out many amazing games that would play to completion and love a lot, although he would never play more than 30 mins of the games he discovered through that website. Personally never understood it and I can see why people hate it per that thread you linked
As for the last question, he is my brother and I love him, needless to say we are polar opposites when it comes to politics.


>not being friends with someone because they use a website
Gosh you're all so horribly young


It's less about the website itself, and more to do with the type of people who generally use it. I wouldn't dislike somebody just because they use Bing, but there's a good chance that I wont like a troper. My comment was mostly a joke anyway.


It's worth noting that most people on most websites (including tvtropes AND uboachan) are regular people but that websites and online communities often encourage a certain standard of behavior among their users. New users will usually look at what sort of content is well received and at least subconsciously tailor their responses to match it. This is why most online communities receive a reputation for being a "hive mind." Furthermore, most people being different personalities to different situations, so it's hard to accurately classify a person as being a certain way, even though people make this unfair snap judgment all the time. I personally like to take this a step further and play with people's expectations by not consistently behaving in the same way in a given location to see how people will react.


I found it back in 2008 when it had the attention of 4chan.
