.hack//AI Buster [KN - Scifi]

#1 Post by Morhighan » Wed Feb 22, 2012 12:28 am

.hack//AI Buster - OELVN Adaptation of the original novel.

Image


Synopsis: [A prequel to .hack//SIGN.]
Albireo is a solo player in The World--a MMORPG that is played worldwide by thousands of people. He comes across a strange girl in a dungeon and is forced to participate in an event. After this bizarre incident, he starts to run into more and more characters because of the girl and her event. He is forced to make a decision—does he continue to the event’s end, despite his guess that the girl must be some kind of glitch? Both he and his character data risk being damaged by this event, which turns the rules of the game upside down.

Main Characters:

Image
Albireo-A solo player whose character is a long arm. He is somewhat stern.

Image
Hokuto-A newbie player whose character is a wavemaster. She's rather bubbly, to the point of being annoying.

Image
Lycoris-A non player character. She is rather mysterious. Could she be a bug?

Image
The Captain/Watarai-Leader of the Cobalt Knights. Head debugger. Takes his work seriously--to the point that he sleeps in the office nap room so he doesn't have to commute.

Extra Characters:

Image
Orca-An enthusiastic roleplayer whose character is a blademaster. He loves the game in a lighthearted, honest way.

Image
Balmung-a serious player whose character is a blademaster.

Image
Errand Girl-a rookie at CC Corp. Her boss can't remember her name. She's not very motivated.

I'm posting this thread to keep track of my progress and to see what interest, if any, there is in the project.
Have I missed anything? XD
Thank you for your time.

Just to check: are you literally jotting down what's written in the books?

I've read most of the .hack books released in America ^^ I'd love to see this finished.
Keep up the good work!

Yes, but I'm also editing it, since Tokyopop did a lackluster job. :3

Quick status update:

I finally managed to get the Title Menu to behave.
Here's what it looks like now:
Image

Now I just need to get the bonus gallery to only appear after the story is done being read. -.- I have the right codes, according to the RenPy website, but alas, I seem to have butchered it somewhere.
If I don't figure it out when I'm more awake tomorrow, I'll just head over to the support forum and ask there.

In other news, I have just passed the 20,000 word mark. I will update this post once I program it in to Ren'Py to see how many screens I have.

Thank you!
