This game is quite cute, though it takes quite awhile to play through. (Not like I actually have anything else to do though. Haha.)
For the first four times or so, I played without being able to see the clothing until I was wearing it. I did manage to fix that after awhile.
Though I have to say that little "secret" about Chase was a bit too obvious, even when playing others routes and spending no time with him.
Dimitri's route, I really wanted to punch him.
Though I loved all the stories (except Lucas since I still haven't done his yet because I don't really like him.)

Vi is by far the best character in the game. Absolutely love him.

I ran into the same problem and had to search the Internet to find a solution. What worked for me was pressing Shift+G and choosing 'Force Software Renderer', restarting the game and starting a new game from the very beginning.

Hope it works for you as well. :)

Well this was a really fun game! I liked the characters, they were well written and more realistic than a lot of characters from high school settings in fiction. I've only finished Dimitri's route but even then I found the others very intriguing! I like all the little events and encounters, and the game's humour is fun. The only problem I'd have is that it'd be cool if the emotion h@x came into the story more, I forgot I had it most of the time. And the game definitely took me longer than 4 hours to complete xD it took me like 3 days. But anyway, great work!

Hey everyone! I'm having like, so much trouble with this game, specially getting Chase's path because no matter what I do, it won't trigger events/scenes with him. Like, nothing happens, that's pretty much it.
It's a great game, and very funny but it's really, really hard. I know there's a guide to it but it's not helpful to me at least. Anyone has any tips? Or if there's a better guide out there please let me know and I'll love you forever.

Aw man, I haven't played the game in so long, but I do remember it was a bit of a struggle at the beginning. Once you get the hang of it, every route will get easier and easier, you just can't give up! I did use the walkthrough that was given by VenusEclipse which was really helpful to me because it is extremely detailed, but I think I can recommend you a couple more things!

A lot of the scenes that occur, happen at the very last year. For the first two years you gotta focus a lot on stat raising so that by the third year it doesn't become too big of a hassle. You definitely have to have those two stats raised up though.

It is very very important to join the Chess club and to attend every Friday (I think it's Friday when you have clubs...). It will give you interaction with him which will help you raise his stat I think. Whenever you are asked about Chase and it asks for your reaction, always choose blush. Every once in a while, use crazy face (the last one in the row), because although it will raise love a lot, it will also raise up your obsession and it will end up with a a bad end. Use it sparingly.

Always always always keep changing your clothes when you go on dates and make sure that it's the type of clothing that he likes. I am sure that the walkthrough gives a list of what type of clothing Chase is into. Make sure not to repeat outfits. If you wear an outfit for one outing (which you should try to do as often as you can), use a different for the next, and a different one for the next, and a different one until you are forced to repeat. It is important to save up your money for clothing, and of course, events! Make sure to buy your Halloween outfit early so you have enough time to save up for money for the actual dance.

Raise up your charm very very early in the game too, even if it's not one of your guys' stats! It will help you find a job quickly!

If you want a specific order of how I would see how my days would look like it would be something like: Study, exercise, study, exercise, and club! I try to do both stats as often as I can in this order and then during weekends rest if I am dying to rest. Mostly use it to raise up my charm!

It is definitely a challenging game because there are so many stats to look into! I'll replay Chase's route and see if I can find anything else that would help you out. ;u; Hope this helps a bit!

Thank you so much for this! I'll try playing it again following your tips now. But really, thank you a lot! :D

If I may, where is the guide or walkthrough? The link for the forum guide said it's disabled.

The walkthrough for the game is moved to this little nice place here...

I by chance found it, and I will leave it right here for everyone else too!
