New characters, part II

Earlier on I mentioned Kamuchataru and Nopon from the new characters, and since I haven’t actually beaten the portable version of the game myself yet, I thought that’s about it for new content.

Alas, i was wrong. This new character render popped up today during my dissamblies of the character portrait images. Her name is Subaru.

I did see the name in the names database earlier but didnt’ really think much of it at the time.

I don’t know her role in the story yet… Time will tell I suppose :P

Notice the lack of animal ears.


EDIT: Upon further inspection, it appears this girl and few others are found in the hidden bonus content.

….Upon seeing the dialoque, I’m not even wondering why they made it hard to reach. I did miss it since these scenes are not even visible with a 100% unlocks save.


well, the artwork is cool though, i dumped off a total of 11 renders that represent the developers themselves. Will be posting more of those later on.


…….Here you go then..

BBS opened.

I didnt really feel at home with just a blog, so decided to make a forum afterall.

Let me know if you run into any issues, I’m not really a front-end developer so this really took a toll on my php-fu.

hopefully it’ll be of some use. you can view the board from here.


Update: as per usual, it appears that the forum registrarion email is also treated as spam, so check your spam folder for it when you register.


About registering

From the looks of it, more than few people have attempted to use their WordPress accounts to log in, so here’s a few things to take note of:

  • This site does not cooperate with your standard wordpress account and requires an account of it’s own.
  • It apprears that currently, atleast Gmail treats our verification email as spam, so when you register, please check your spam folder, and whitelist
  • Security measures are in place that prevent login hammering, and you will be banned for a period of time after several unsuccesful login attempts.

Sorry for the inconvenience.


Moving around and round…

Welcome to BLACKlabel…. again

second time we move within a week.

Now finally residing at our very own domain,  free from ads, restrictions and the other garbage that comes with free hosts. Feels good man.. Well, I still dislike blogs and while I think I managed fairly well with this, it’s still rather incomplete from every here or there, I’ll be improving it as I go.

the second thing then… Money, it’s always about money. BLACKlabel does not and will not ever ask for donations or any other forms of gifts. We are hobbyists, this is our hobby and hobbies cost money. The server costs aren’t all that bad anyway ;)

That being said, I’ll just move onto the main point. Utawarerumono portable is the first project of BLACKlabel, and currently under progress, you can see a bit of it at the projects section.

We’re currently progressing fairly well, the graphics work is as good as done, as only thing missing is 2 images that we havent bothered to implement yet due to their yet-another proprietary format. On the hacking side, it’s just poking some values to align menus and some items a little better, and on the script side, everything is working a-ok. The script will take a while to complete but it’s completely void of technical obstacles now.

The Pepper patch will be looked into after Vanilla is complete and released, so I won’t go into details of it just yet.

Hopefully you’ll enjoy the ride at BLACKlabel’s real home now.
