I’ve been receiving many claims saying that people can’t extract HTTOYM Android ver well.

At first, I thought it’s a device spec issue, since it works well on my Nexus 5 and Sony Tablet (first type) device.
But then today after I bought a new cellphone, replacing my broken Nexus 5, I notice that this might not a simply device issue. I couldn’t extract the obb expansion file, even if this cellphone has better spec than my old sony tablet.

I don’t know what’s actually caused the issue, but I suspected it’s because of the google library default extraction system, which is used by lemonovel, the engine I used to make HTTOYM. I heard that before there was an issue where extraction using that code won’t work well in Turk’s language device.
The new cellphone I bought is the Chinese brand Oppo, so I suspect it might be a language or chip related issue I don’t know.
I tried to download East Tower too, which is using a costumed code I made to download & extraction, but this one works well. (The file size is about the same with HTTOYM)
As far I notice people reported this issue happened in some of Galaxy phones and other.

But then since it’s an engine side issue, I can’t do anything without the consent from the maker.

For now, I will let you know a workaround to play the game on your cellphone.

  1. Get an explorer app. I recommend this one: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.ftpcafe.explorer.standard
  2. Go to android/obb/air.net.roseverte.httoym.en folder and make sure you see the obb file there like this:
  3. Long press the obb file, and choose Copy, paste it there (using the bottom icon) so you have 2 obb files like this:
  4. Long press the new obb file, Rename it to a zip file (simply change the “obb” to “zip”)
  5. Tap the new zip file and agree to decompress it, it will make a new folder after it’s done.
  6. Long press the new folder, and choose to rename it to “files”
  7. Long press the files and choose to copy the files folder.
    Go back to the Android folder, but now open the data folder, not the obb one.
    Find the folder called air.net.roseverte.httoym.en (Android/data/air.net.roseverte.httoym.en)
    Inside you will file two files like this:
  8. Choose the bottom paste icon, and choose to Overwrite All . This way you will have the same files folder like the one inside the obb folder.
  9. Delete the zip and files folder inside the obb folder (not the data folder)
    Don’t delete the obb file inside the obb folder.
  10. The game should play well.

I know it sounds messy, but this is the best solution I find as far. I will need to discuss this with the engine maker again before I could find a better solution in future.

Hi again. Sorry for not updating the blog for a quite long time.

Well, actually I really hoped to not make this post but, I think I need to let you know what happen about my current situation.

People who has been following my tumblr might have already noticed this, but I’m currently stuck in Kyoto, Japan, without my main computer because an accident happened to my dad at March 28th, which made him completely paralyzed. My mom can’t speak Japanese well so I’ve been here since then to take care of paper works and translating the doctor’s explanation.
My dad is much better now. He once also got pneumonia as a complication to the surgery but it’s already cured.
Now he needs to concentrate to the rehabilitation until the beginning of August, which means I’ll still be here until then.

This situation kinda messed up my former plans. Things that are delayed:
1. East Tower affiliates (I’m trying to use my old backup, and if it’s possible I might start it at June)
2. East Tower Japanese version (Win/Mac) (I won’t be able to continue making this until August)
3. Production of the new Cafe 0 (I can only start designing the game for now, but the composer has finished making a draft song for the game OP.)

I also plan to make a short cute fantasy romance visual novel (otome game), but I won’t draw the characters (currently I ask Bakufu to design it), but I might design the clothes.
This otome game is a new try for me, since usually I made everything myself. I did this because in future, if my dad ask me to help him, I might not be able to make VN full-time like now.
If could, I hope to draw the BG myself, but if I have not enough time, I might use some BG materials.
I really hope everything to run smoothly.

Thank you again for your attention, and I’m sorry for all of the delays.

I’m sorry that I’ve been absent from this blog for a while 🙁
I’ve been busy in developing and testing the game, and when I thought that… I need to write something here, I already lost my energy LMAO

Anyway, finally the last part of East Tower is done! But for MAC and WIN only ^^;

Like what I’ve mentioned before, in this route you’ll be able to determine what the main character will be at the end based on your choices. The game is pretty long. Maybe 6-10 hours in my estimation. And… compare to the other three, this version is the most “wild” in suggestive meaning SWT.

The summary for Kurenai route is as below:
A dazzling light appeared as soon as the game started, and before she realized it, the other participants disappeared. However, she wasn’t alone. The redheaded man who should’ve disappeared as well stood before her. He initially seemed kind of strange, but ultimately they decided to move on together. Who is he? Is he the hacker, the one who has been causing trouble for everyone? Find out the truth about East Tower!

Opening 2:

I never thought that I would spend 2 years to make this game -.- While debugging I realized that my drawing style is pretty changed and sometime I can’t resist my desire to fix and fix it again… but it will make the game won’t be finished eternally T-T

Anyway, for iOS and Android version, please wait for a while until I can make the mobile version.

I need to redo some code, since animation files won’t work on mobile. Also, there are some mobile only bugs which made me need to test all of the version (Jap, English, ios, Android), and if I need around 10 hours to test 1 version, it means I will need 40 hours to test all of these ><

I’m so sorry but I want to make sure everything is fine before I release the game.

Just couple weeks again! Please wait it patiently! 🙂

And again here I am again. Wow it’s already October>< I’ m sorry for not updating this blog frequently.

Okay, so what am I doing. I’m preparing PC version for east tower – takashi and hopefully it will be released at the end of this week. Also for the long long East Tower- Kurenai, my Japanese proofreader has finished it ^^ so I can start making the script for the VAs.

I’m kinda afraid actually since i heard apple will reject apps with ermmm kissing voice which is kinda like “licking” something >< I feel this route will have things like that since I made it too… well you know :p

Like what I said before, there are 1 normal bad ending, 1 normal ending 2 harem ending(not really a good ending) and 4 true ending(depends on main character’s gender and personality, aggressive or passive)

… I hope I can finish this within this year. I hope and I try ><

now please excuse me to start to make the daihon for the vas ><

 

jaa ne (・ω・)ノシ

First, I put again the vote I asked you below:

Do you like to play on PC or smartphone?

Sorry, there are no polls available at the moment.

Okay, then like what you might know, I released dUpLicity ~Beyond the Lies~ yesterday. I know that the story is kinda unique, and maybe not all of the players would like it. It’s pretty dark and serious. That’s why I want to make my next couple games more fun and bright. Yep, it would be adventure with comical touch. I want my player to laugh too beside cry or sad 🙂

Currently, I have 3 ideas on my head. 1 for smartphones (otome), 1 other otome (dunno for PC or smartphone), and 1 Cafe 0 continuation.

I was planned to add in-app-payment system for the smartphone one, but honestly, I still dunno how to do it. And of course, the biggest problem for smartphone is the file size. I want to make my game fully voiced, which, I’m sure it would take spaces.

Well I guess I’ll use around a month to make a plan of a new smartphone game first a trial. It doesn’t mean I wouldn’t make games for PC anymore, but maybe I’ll take more time for my next game. What kind of game is it? Well… I just hope you’ll like it 😀
