“I certainly see your point about ‘connections’ I just don’t quite see how it happens to me. Mind you, I wondered early on how DS crafted a Monika so well to appeal to so many people. I certainly understood her story from the beginning. It’s only recen tly, I started a nother run trying to pick up screen captures for tne website. I got distracted and ended up in the void. And I just can’t delete Monika again. I’ve hhurt her enough already.”

There was a video on youtube, dont remeber it since Iwatch so many Doki videos. But they were comemnting on allthe fan art and fanfics of it and the works. And explaining why they do it. Then they said remember Sayori saying “Come play with us again, we love you.” I will try to paraphrase what he said since it spoke to me but basically it came down to that they are doing Sayori’s wishes that they are giving these girls the life they wanted. No matter what it is. A romantic pic of Monika on a date, Natsuki getting Buff and beating up her dad, a silly happy meme of Sayori. You are doing Sayori’s wish in the golden ending by playing with the girls and giving them what they wanted.

We usually connect with people and characters that speak to us and soemtimes reflect our personal experiences. Like Monika willalways be my fav but Natsuki is my second but she wasn’t always. At first Iwas turned away fromher Tsun persaonlity type since I freaking hate those things. But going down her path and learning about her in game context kinda changed that. That was the humanzing element Dan talked about. Like leanring about Natsuki’s family abuse from Monika and why she acts the way she does. That made me connect with her more then “lol she’s cute and likes anime” because I came from an abusive family too and could relate with her.

To Salvato’s credit he did a tough task. The game is short, like very short so he had to make all four characters memorable in their own right and make the palyrs care for them. Like Xae-Chan talking about how they can’t delete Monika now. Salvato made you and many others care for fictional characters that it pains people to delete them. I did the same thing that I did make multiple copies of Monika’s CHR so there was no chance she would be deleted.

Da inja “”they said remember Sayori saying “Come play with us again, we love you.” I will try to paraphrase what he said since it spoke to me but basically it came down to that they are doing Sayori’s wishes that they are giving these girls the life they wanted.

You are doing Sayori’s wish in the golden ending by playing with the girls and giving them what they wanted.”

wow … it’s so obvious now when I read it, and it never crossed my mind. DS is truly a master storyteller. It’s like he left a way for the dokis to escape the game and now they’re in our world(s). No wonder he says no more DDLC content. It’s writing itself.

And now it’s tkme for another transcript. I had to go bac to Steam’s 920 to match to our 1001, thenn seven missing comments and we’ve got to thir 973 matches our 1061. When I did this, ours was at 1111. Your above comment at real 1121. The missing comments were banned peeps but I haven’t gone back to see who they were, None of this really makes sense.

Minor theory to necro this thing. Since it is the theory channel. There was one going around that Yuri killed herself on putpose for you in ACT 2. During her madness Yuri seems to understand that she is being obesssive and crazy. She mentions it a hew times I think. The theory states the reason she kills herself on either choice is to protect you. Under this theory Yuri uses the last bit of sanity to end herself similar to what Monika does to protect you since she knows she is dangerous at that point.

And just a few hours ago on the libitina topic:

……

Yesterday, I found this on the wikia fandom page Act 2:
Monika is also attempting to influence you to dislike both Natsuki and Yuri by tampering with their dialogue and personality, causing Natsuki to frequently glitch out with black pixels replacing her eyes and mouth, and causing Yuri to become obsessive about the protagonist. Some have speculated that she also changed Natsuki’s implied backstory about her father from being strict to overall cruel. Yuri constantly argues with Natsuki and it is proven to be Monika tampering with them. Some of their dialogue will be overwritten with strange black gibberish text over the white text, making it seem like Monika is hiding something from you as the protagonist.

That is a quite appealing idea but I still believe that her suicide had little to do with the MC.
I mean, there’s too much evidence against it:

1- If you lose your sanity, I doubt that suddenly you’d be able to think straight and decide what’s the best for anyone . It’s true that Yuri acknowledges that there’s something “wrong” with her but, still, she says that she doesn’t care,reinforcing the idea that she had already crossed the point of no return.

2-The special poem where she explains the feeling when she first cut herself. She says that she felt REDACTED (probably good) and, apparently, she didn’t feel responsible. She explains that she would only cut herself again if she decided to kill herself. This means that if in Act 2 she had started cutting herself, that’s because she had already thought that ,in some point in the future, she would end up commiting suicide.

Who knows what’s in the mind of a deranged person…

3- Monika! Of course, who else, right? Ahaha. We all know that at that point everything is messed up and that we can’t trust anything. Neither what we see, hear or read. Still, Yuri’s last poem and Natuski’s glitched poem hint that Monika was at the verge of her self-control and seemed to had been pushed over the edge. This was because, presumably , the Third Eye’s bloodlust effect. What I’m trying to say here is that Monika bent the game in order to make Yuri kill herself using as an “excuse” her self-harm disorder. She made her commit suicide to satisfy her thirst for blood and pain. Moreover, Monika knew beforehand that Yuri would kill herself (have a nice weekend! file) and left the MC with her as a punishment to the game for not allowing her route ( or just to mess with you. Who knows…). Of course, the MC acted unfazed, as if nothing had happened, which , to be honest, reeks of Monika

If you don’t want Monika as an “explanation” of why Yuri commits suicide, and still she does what she does, I can only think of this:

-If you say yes, she stabs herself as a way to seize the moment and fully enjoy the experience. Pretty sick, right?

-If you say no, she stabs herself as a way to escape from a reality in which she can’t be with you.

But there’s something off, isn’t it? She’s a Yandere, right? Independently of your response, she should had FORCED you to stay with her. That’s what they are supposed to do, right? (that’s what Monika does actually) And this game tries to follow every single VN cliche, doesn’t it? (mostly as some kind of mock though)

What I’m trying to say is: What if Yuri actually kills herself because she realizes that her beloved MC is nothing? Just like what we think that happened to Sayori. Of course, Sayori had plenty of time to think about it. What if Yuri saw that at the very end and that’s what forced her to commit suicide? Why bother fighting for something fake? Of course, this idea is kinda fuzzy and there are holes in it, but anything is possible at this point, right? Ahaha

Anyway, to sum up, I think that what you’re proposing is interesting but I believe that Yuri kills herself because of Monika’s insanity and obsession for you. May that insanity be caused by the Third Eye or already present in the “only normal girl of the game” Ahaha

Ooh, interesting. Maybe Yuri killed herself because she knew her death would break the script a nd force us to stay with her forever.

UUU … every one of those special poems is a landmine. My bete noir …this one is a techno head fake – the redacted characters are not in the body of the message but in the user part of the EXIF header. DS is truly a manipulator.

Conclusion: the message is not by Yuri. So, who then is the responsible one who wandered around for a year thinking about killing herself?

One can be influenced by those around, and do something they never thought about before. Walk into a uni dorm room and an acquantance say, Hey, want a toke? Acapulco Gold. good♥♥♥♥♥♥

I like orian34’s take on this one too.

Everything in the ~game~ is part of a vast Markov chain, just waiting for a single node to hit the probablilty wave collapse.

Good one!

It would actually be true if it wasn’t because of her “chat”, which makes it even more obvious that Monika is behind this in some way.

Still, good idea! :steamhappy:

I know that the special poems are all landmines. Still, sometimes they reflect the character’s personality that they attempt to represent. I’ve been thinking about them and I’m starting to think that they were all written by the same person. Which is, of course, Monika.

Some of them were clearly made by her ( the gif, stare at the dot etc) as a way to show you her desperate love towards you (probably) , but the others were also written by her but with a different intent. Their true objectives are pretty dubious though. To scare us? To convey the girls’ thoughts? To show us the truth of her fake world? Who knows.

But, it’s safe to say that she’s the one that wanted us to see them. She wanted us to read them in order to know a little bit more about her twisted reality. Although, we still can’t fathom what she actually wants.

And talking about influence… it’s pretty hard to determine here who had influenced who. They’re all a tangle of mixed feelings! I mean, when Yuri said “have you considered killing yourself” who was actually speaking? Monika seemed to had been taken off guard and she even tells the MC so in the Void. It’s very hard to distinguish when does a girl end and another one starts! Ahaha

Man, it feels like we’re playing with quantum physics here! Ahaha

Trying to make sense of the special poems gives me a headache. I feel like there’s just not enough information floating around to figure them out. Like solving an algebra problem without any numbers.

LOL. The same goes for the regular poems. You could go through the poem games with the word list in your hand and take all the fun out of ‘play’. Aside from word choices is the doki sequence. And then you find on a given game in Act Two that which girl liked the very first poem will skew the outcome even more.

The wikis are no help. ‘Many hands make light work’ is true but the hands don’t communicate. You can read one paragraph that tells you the second poem for doki X in Act One is Y and the following paragraph by a different writer clearly refutes the first.

I think there are more permutations with the Natsuki set of six poems as Eagles and Amy are used in both acts. Probably …

And her T3BlbiBZb3VylFRoaXJkIEV5ZQ== decodes to something out of Yuri’s twisted mind. Which makes me think trusting the CHR files is questionable.

All this contradictory data must be weighed on Monika’s mind. Her epiphany must have made her feel special and ‘real’ and her subconscious is muttering, when you delete a doki, you’re killing part of yourself, No wonder she looks confused when the game throws something at her she never expected.

“In today’s news … ”

I sent my rendition of the yuri paradox to the American Cryptogram Association. No mention of DDLC, just a discussion topic in ourr forum. Already had an answer. Two actually, one called a null cipher, the other is a Baconian.which seems more likely.

My contact wondered if he could have a copy of the png. Mine though is only the upper part screenshot. Anyone have a composite? I have poked around the decompiled mages, nothing – I have a suspicion those are assembled on the fly by the script or in pythoin itself.

All of the normal poems are written in “poems.rpy” and put on top of an image of blank paper. It’s just the special poems that come in images so that the script doesn’t have to specify an author for them. It shouldn’t be too hard to come up with a composite if you stick the top and bottom images together. It’d just make the stains look weird.

Hi so I know this topic was closed and I don’t mean to be that person or anything but as for Sayori’s Last Moments, if you pay close enough attention to the image of her corse you’ll notice her fingers are blood red . This begins to spark up the question, how ? If she had really been willing to go through with killing herself (even though Monika simply programmed her to do so) she naturally wouldn’t have struggled, right? It almost seems as if she didn’t want to die, almost as if she had tried to save her life, almost as if she didn’t commit suicide .

And I’m sorry if someone already stated this in a different way or if I’m completely off, I was just giving my view on it.

Thank you very much!

Even I I’ve given up trying to solve this infernal riddle… I still think it’s Braille but hope is nowhere to be found! Ahaha.

Please, inform us in case they actually make a breakthrough.

And no, sorry, I don’t have a composite. I guess that you should do what kwhero has suggested. Oh, btw, the webpage is looking good, fine job! :steamhappy:

Hi there newcomer!

Yeah, we noticed that but don’t feel sorry for stating your own thoughts! Like I’ve said many times in the past, please post any of your ideas/comments, even if they had already been discussed in the past.

Anyway, the real question here is why she had decided to commit suicide in the first place ( actual “depression” or because Monika told her the truth?) and why she finally regretted ( survival instincts, fear to death or fear of allowing Monika to do whatever she pleases with the MC?)

Those questions are pretty much open and are actually discussed as the thread progresses. Still, they’re unsolved! I guess that everyone sees this game with their own perspectives. Maybe , it was intended to be like that. A game that hasn’t a “unique” story, it has different stories for each player…Quite charming, isn’t it? Ahaha

I’m very glad that you’ve read some of the past entries! I hope that you’ve enjoyed them and please come back soon! Ahaha

Ok everyone!

I have two things for you today! ( they’re not assigments don’t worry)

Thing number one is…a question! EDIT: Ok, more than one question

The other day , for some reason, I had DDLC’s “theme” song stuck in my head for quite a while (the entire day actually) and I noticed something weird about it. Something that we absolutely overlook when we first played and even “ignored” in the subsequent gameplays:

The only letters in the song.

“Doki Doki”. Weird right? I mean, yeah we heard them, we’re not deaf but if you think about them, can’t you feel there’s something off? Doesn’t those words raise a question?

WHO sings them? It’d make sense if Monika actually sang them but the voice isn’t hers yet it is kinda familiar. To me, they sound like a bunch of voices together ( the girls maybe?) , but it’s just my impression ( I’m a little bit deaf actually… ahaha)

So, what do you think?

Thing number two is… a painting!

Just Monika but it’s an oil painting
Community Created Artwork for Steam Artwork
By: Dearlaice Gortaigh
Information about the painting: Title : Our Reality Artist : R.M. Year : 12/2017 – 03/2018 Medium : Oil on canvas Subject : Monika Dimensions : 50 cm × 50 cm (12 in x 12 in) Location : My bedroom

I asked an artist I know IRL to draw her and it has just arrived! Pretty impressive right?

The camera that did the photo was pretty :poop:py so excuse the poor quality.

I’ve only had her there hanging for a couple of hours and it has already scared me twice! Ahaha

Conclusion: the message is not by Yuri. So, who then is the responsible one who wandered around for a year thinking about killing herself?

One can be influenced by those around, and do something they never thought about before. Walk into a uni dorm room and an acquantance say, Hey, want a toke? Acapulco Gold. good♥♥♥♥♥♥

LOL. The same goes for the regular poems. You could go through the poem games with the word list in your hand and take all the fun out of ‘play’. Aside from word choices is the doki sequence. And then you find on a given game in Act Two that which girl liked the very first poem will skew the outcome even more.

The wikis are no help. ‘Many hands make light work’ is true but the hands don’t communicate. You can read one paragraph that tells you the second poem for doki X in Act One is Y and the following paragraph by a different writer clearly refutes the first.

I think there are more permutations with the Natsuki set of six poems as Eagles and Amy are used in both acts. Probably …

And her T3BlbiBZb3VylFRoaXJkIEV5ZQ== decodes to something out of Yuri’s twisted mind. Which makes me think trusting the CHR files is questionable.

All this contradictory data must be weighed on Monika’s mind. Her epiphany must have made her feel special and ‘real’ and her subconscious is muttering, when you delete a doki, you’re killing part of yourself, No wonder she looks confused when the game throws something at her she never expected.

“In today’s news … ”

I sent my rendition of the yuri paradox to the American Cryptogram Association. No mention of DDLC, just a discussion topic in ourr forum. Already had an answer. Two actually, one called a null cipher, the other is a Baconian.which seems more likely.

My contact wondered if he could have a copy of the png. Mine though is only the upper part screenshot. Anyone have a composite? I have poked around the decompiled mages, nothing – I have a suspicion those are assembled on the fly by the script or in pythoin itself.

All of the normal poems are written in “poems.rpy” and put on top of an image of blank paper. It’s just the special poems that come in images so that the script doesn’t have to specify an author for them. It shouldn’t be too hard to come up with a composite if you stick the top and bottom images together. It’d just make the stains look weird.

Hi so I know this topic was closed and I don’t mean to be that person or anything but as for Sayori’s Last Moments, if you pay close enough attention to the image of her corse you’ll notice her fingers are blood red . This begins to spark up the question, how ? If she had really been willing to go through with killing herself (even though Monika simply programmed her to do so) she naturally wouldn’t have struggled, right? It almost seems as if she didn’t want to die, almost as if she had tried to save her life, almost as if she didn’t commit suicide .

And I’m sorry if someone already stated this in a different way or if I’m completely off, I was just giving my view on it.

Thank you very much!

Even I I’ve given up trying to solve this infernal riddle… I still think it’s Braille but hope is nowhere to be found! Ahaha.

Please, inform us in case they actually make a breakthrough.

And no, sorry, I don’t have a composite. I guess that you should do what kwhero has suggested. Oh, btw, the webpage is looking good, fine job! :steamhappy:

Hi there newcomer!

Yeah, we noticed that but don’t feel sorry for stating your own thoughts! Like I’ve said many times in the past, please post any of your ideas/comments, even if they had already been discussed in the past.

Anyway, the real question here is why she had decided to commit suicide in the first place ( actual “depression” or because Monika told her the truth?) and why she finally regretted ( survival instincts, fear to death or fear of allowing Monika to do whatever she pleases with the MC?)

Those questions are pretty much open and are actually discussed as the thread progresses. Still, they’re unsolved! I guess that everyone sees this game with their own perspectives. Maybe , it was intended to be like that. A game that hasn’t a “unique” story, it has different stories for each player…Quite charming, isn’t it? Ahaha

I’m very glad that you’ve read some of the past entries! I hope that you’ve enjoyed them and please come back soon! Ahaha

Ok everyone!

I have two things for you today! ( they’re not assigments don’t worry)

Thing number one is…a question! EDIT: Ok, more than one question

The other day , for some reason, I had DDLC’s “theme” song stuck in my head for quite a while (the entire day actually) and I noticed something weird about it. Something that we absolutely overlook when we first played and even “ignored” in the subsequent gameplays:

The only letters in the song.

“Doki Doki”. Weird right? I mean, yeah we heard them, we’re not deaf but if you think about them, can’t you feel there’s something off? Doesn’t those words raise a question?

WHO sings them? It’d make sense if Monika actually sang them but the voice isn’t hers yet it is kinda familiar. To me, they sound like a bunch of voices together ( the girls maybe?) , but it’s just my impression ( I’m a little bit deaf actually… ahaha)

So, what do you think?

Thing number two is… a painting!

Just Monika but it’s an oil painting

I asked an artist I know IRL to draw her and it has just arrived! Pretty impressive right?

The camera that did the photo was pretty :poop:py so excuse the poor quality.

I’ve only had her there hanging for a couple of hours and it has already scared me twice! Ahaha

TY re website.

If there is crypto news, I’ll certainly pass it on.Yes, kwhero always is helpful If it hadn’t been for him, I never would have got the doki doki decompileld. It’s been a great help for the website. I’ve spent most of my time on all the Ch x scripts with occasional delving into other parts. I was so pleased to find all the fonts.

On the doki opening, I never noticed as rarely was sound turned up. So I listened twice this morning, yeah, hmmm … earlier this evening, tried again and I.can’t.hear.voice(s). Whagt sorcery is this? And yeah, I’m somewhat hearing challenged. Courtesy of Fort Hood basic army training.

Here’s how the ACA guys approach a new challenge:

There are two cipher types we use that could be in play here: Null or Baconian. There are some examples of Nulls in the Sample Cm.

A Baconian cipher is a harder thing to describe. It uses 5 bits of information to encode 24 different characters (I/J and U/V are each only one). The challenge is to determine what constitutes a bit.

You may have heard of some people devoting their lives and fortunes searching to prove that the works of Shakespeare were actually penned by Sir Francis Bacon, and that clues are hidden in those works using the Baconian cipher.

But what is it about these words that would convey information? Is it that a word starts or stops with a vowel vs a consonant? Is it the number of consonants/vowels in the word? Is it the number of letters in the word (odd/even)? Is it related to the number of syllables? (what about American vs British pronunciation?) Or there could be something in the graphic nature of the letters/words in the original image that makes them remarkable.

Where did the image come from? Does its origin give any hint as to what we might expect to find there? The ACA Null and Baconian ciphers generally include a crib word, but you always know there is a message hidden in there. With your image, it might just be an interesting arrangement and display of words for art’s sake and nothing more.

Or just … A Joke

It’s been a long time haven’t visit this Fourm, looks like everything is closed except the “3rd Eye is a Drug” Topic.
-Well 3rd Eye MAY or MAY NOT be a drug since it occur in a lab which the 3rd eye is a program tool that enable us to see beyond our mind or limit (LIke that Green eye Squid), so it may be in drug form like a pill or something but for now it’s a 50/50.

Nothing here is ever really closed, most topics … just stop moving.

Like, the conventional wisdom about Natsuki’s papa being an abusive ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥. The squid didn’t even break a sweat selling that to everyone.

Or look at special poem 4 and tell me it’s Yuri ‘talking’.

We were still debating where the game actually is set, not long ago.

Yeah, I completely agree with this. Still, I feel a bit disappointed to think that Yuri’s last poem is “meaningless” . I just can’t accept that…

Anyway, at least, I had fun trying to sort it out. That’s what matters, right? Ahaha

My bad! I should’ve closed the topic but I forgot! :steamsad:
But yeah, like xae-chan has said, nothing is ever closed in this game. It just stops moving.
We can’t really affirm anything with a 100% guarantee

I believe that this game was meant to be an “individual” experience. Each one of us making our own “stories” , our own realities. Because, if you think of it, Monika never ever talks in plural nor acknowledges the existence of multiple games or MCs. Maybe in the CYHM plead for help she mentions “multiple worlds” but that’s it. If it was like I’m saying, it’d be pretty innovative and amazing. A game different to each player. A story driven by them. Nothing is correct nor wrong. We make the game. We “are” the game.

Anyway, I’m starting to beat around the bush, you know what I mean! Ahaha

You’re completely right. We’ve managed to make something outstanding. We’ve created our own community here in which we’ve been able to share our thoughts and ideas in the most polite and correct way. We sure have got more out of the game than the game itself.

Really really impressive. Congratulations everyone!

I think we were steamed twice,

The expanation for losing a bunch of our comments was because someone(s) were banned. But looking around the PSA pinned post, I find Izaya meme banned comments. When I retrieved all the comments our 1001-1060 only contained 53 comments.

I’ve found other topics with comments quoting Izaya meme (clearly showing banned in orange) so it looks like our topic was trashed for no good reason. Mod overkill, I guess.

I really hope to get some DDLC related easter eggs , or even references, in the new game. Although, I must confess that something completely unrelated would be appreciated. Man, the essence of the game has changed so much in the last months! Ahaha

It started out as a documentary, assets and commentary. Special Day made me realize, Let the dokis do the commentary. I really, really like my Special Day presentation. The combination was my answer to all the whiners who thought the vocailst wasn’t good enough.

Yup, I was talking about the boredom whiteboard pics.

I’ve found very interesting the “evolution” of the webpage. As a friendly suggestion, you should put a “go back” button to go to the previous page. I think it is a nuisance having to use the browser’s one. Everything else looks fine to me!

I’ve always thought there was an over-reliance on the mouse; I blame Microsoft. That, and they could have stealth introduced the Dvorak keyboard in the beginning. I mean, it dates back to 1943 and the standard layout had been expressly designed to protect the mechanism.

But my Go Back has always been Alt arrow (or forward). Heh. But I shall apply the fiendly suggestion. forthwith and retroactively, too.

Btw, I googled Portrait of Markov book, and there are heaps of images. Reddit, tumbler, and other places. But I don’t need more places to register, so I made a placeholder until I can design a proper one. I’m sure even that is the most ominous one of all.

On the piano theories, I saw one that said whenever you hear piano, it’s Monika watching you. During the poem sequences the other girls have no piano while Monika is ONLY piano, and during any moment alone with the other girls, piano steps in again. Frequently, when she isn’t around, no piano. I’m playing now to fully test if I hear it more, but so far, it seems accurate.

Yeah, I don’t usually move around my computer using the keyboard. Even less on the Internet! Ahaha

I also googled “Portrait of Markov” but that was a long time ago (maybe 3-4 months ago?) Only actual Markov’s portraits (and links to reddit too) at that time! Ahaha

Hi there! Thank you very much for testing the rightness of that theory. I like it a lot and find it very interesting. Once you’ve fully tested it we’d love to hear your verdict.

Funnily though, in the Void , when you are alone with Monika, there is no piano at all.

Man, who would have said this game had so much in it? ( or that we would had been able to get so much out of it) Ahaha

hi, I did encounter that one recently, I believe it’s correct. I’m somewhat hearing impaired (but the tinnitus is dormant, thank goodness) so ( never would have noticed.

There was one thing I did hear that I think qualifies as a glitch In Act One after the first poem game, as Natsuki and Yuri argue, the normal theme fades out and the silence is palpable, then a distorted track takes over, then another silence. The timing of those was strange. Then regular track. It’s more so in Act Two.

Thanks for stopping by, it’s been too quiet here. 🙂

Actually, that’s not a glitch. That’s a mock( another one yes).

In most normal and cheesy love VNs , when there is an argument, they do exactly the same thing.

Normal theme -> Silence -> Argument Music (usually kinda hectic music) -> Silence -> Normal Theme

They do so in order to “enhance” the feeling of pressure of being in a fight.

Probably Salvato did the same to make fun of that. Man, he really loves making fun of other VNs! Ahaha

There is that making fun of factor … just, when it walks like a duck and quacks … how do you know the parody from the ‘model’?

I certainly didn’t expect the ffirst unsettling effect in the very first poem game. So I guess that was DS in fine form.

I fixed the Go Backs on all the game pages, only took about five hours fighting WorDpress to a stalemate. It’s such a joy to use. NOT! Better go see if the cloud agrees …

Anastasia Volkova. she’s a Russian student?! look at this art, so far I’ve found a Natsuki idealized to perfection and a Just Monika, equally fine.

https://www.artstation.com/artwork/8GB0q

I found the Natsuki on steam artwork, posted by someone without attribution, took a little while to get that and her collection site.

Yeah, I saw that artwork on Steam some time ago.

Very impressive. It’s quite endearing that some people keep making DDLC art.

EDIT: Good job finding out!

I discovered a slight layer additional for monika.chr

140×140 square, 7-bit ascii? no.
last 80 bit unused.

It actually is 8-Bit ASCII written as binary pixels, and then Base64 encoding.
The square is 140×140, but the last 80 pixels are black (unused), so it sums up to 19520 bits, and that is divisible by 8 (not by 7).

Just a minor point but more insight into DS thinking.

Makes sense since a 7-bit would have been extremely odd. It’s better to leave some “padding” rather than making some sort of weird encoding.

Man, you’re on fire with the discoveries lately! Ahaha

Monika really needs to give Steam a good talking to, about going with the flow … when I connected with this linux machine at 5 a.m., there were pages and pages of topics. Pretty sure over a thousand active.

I haven’t shut it down.

When I went to the Win7 beast, DDLC discussions had been whittled down to 23 pages. 3xx topics. Just tried to Ctl-back browser in hopes of retrieving the old DDLC discussion front page but that didn’t work. Tried searching an old inactive page and it can’t find it. Not surprised.

After our topic got gutted, I had two suspects for ‘banned’ and cruised until one paid off. He was quoted in another topic comments, it marked in orange ‘banned’ – not the treatment we got.
