I’m finish checking through the MSN2 scripts once again so I’m leaving it to the rest. I may scan through it fast one last time later if needed.
Since I’m done with MSN2, I’m starting to translate MSN3. It has… 343 scripts!! What a monster it is. I’ll inform the author that I’m translating MSN3 when I’ve released MSN2.
Btw, the most popular post I have here is my Ukagaka post surprisingly(Other than Prince Maker stuff). Anyone still playing it? That post is outdated however. There is a better one with more functions called Edited Enhanced 2. I also found a lot of nice Ukagaka to play with over the years. However, I don’t think I can provide download because they have really strict sharing policy and there is one especially:”Can only be spread inside China”(I don’t live in China though, but I think it really means not to be shared in places that are not Chinese). It means I can’t even tell anyone that doesn’t speak Chinese. That Ukagaka is really great one, comparable to the Kikka and Towa so I really want to share…(In the end, I’ll share screenshot of it but it’s up to you guys to find it for download).
But I know why they acted like that. The Ukagaka community is really having a tough time, they are providing it free but people keep doing hateful things like selling it in tabobao(something like eBay), share through emails(I rarely find this in the English community but it is a norm in the Chinese community to share stuff by bulk sending to emails) and not linking to the author’s website. Unfortunately, using Ukagaka without understanding it always lead to a lot of problems and when emailing to ppl, it is just the file without any explanations and when there are problems, ppl rush back to the author’s site to complain, in the end, it is the person who packaged it in the wrong way so it cannot be used. There is one author that got really angry and ceased providing download of her Ukagaka and announced that no one can share it too, She also finish the pairing Ukagaka but only share it with ppl she really trust. This Ukagaka is my favourite one(it’s in the picture too) so it is really sad.
Ukagaka isn’t just a desktop eye candy toy like Shimeji(it crawls around your desktop XD). You can make it into a program launcher, dictionary, learn Japanese, music player etc… some has great RPG system where you go to fight monsters and you have to feed it from time to time, achievements records, some will evolve from seed and grow into something if you keep it on the desktop for long time, some have intricate storyline. I’m surprised that I kept it on my desktop almost everyday and watch it doing it stuff and talk interesting things. Some can be updated too so there are constantly new stuff. Mostly, I kept it small though so that it won’t get in the way when I do things. The new Ukagaka program has a lot of new functions too in the Options part like selecting transparency of balloons, characters separately. It makes things easier rather than dependent on coding.
Hmm? In the end I talk about Ukagaka so much? More than what my topic is supposed to be. If I really share about Ukagaka(I won’t provide download but will tell how to get to the author’s site and how to download), I really hope you guys don’t upload and share it publicly(that can be found using google). Making the authors angry means no good stuff to play with anymore. Basically, all of them need to get permission from the author to re-upload and share, so if you don’t know Chinese it’s hard to ask for permission. Some don’t really need permission though like Kikka & Towa since it is a combination of a lot of stuff and a lot of ppl editing, hard to say why.
Ok, this is the screenshot of some of the Ukagaka in the Chinese community that I like(actually there are some more but my screen not enough space to fit all.
Some good Ukagaka
