RosenkreuzStilette ~Blades of the Rose Cross~ Thread
« on: March 13, 2010, 11:26:55 PM »
It's been a while since anyone here discussed anything relating to the world of [Rosenkreuzstilette. So I'll start filling you all in on what's happening recently:

-The Rosenkreuzstilette Fan Contest-

Started late January 2009, Schwer and Schwer Alike has started the Rosenkreuzstilete Fan Contest for those who wish to show their fandom of the series. Many judges will be judging the contestant's entry and decides the winner. The winner will receive a copy of Kiora's Rosenkreuzstilette doujinshi, Rosenkreuzstilette UnOfficial AfterStory which was release at Comiket 77. Rules and entry information can be found at provided links. All entries must be sent by April 1st, 2010

-Rosenkreuzstilette English Patch v1.06a-
With the release of version 1.06a, Darkside Translations is currently in the works of an English Patch for the latest version of Rosenkreuzstilette. Many of the issues found in the initial release will be address among other things. [link]

If you have anything you like to point out that Darkside Translations should see, please let these guys know here!

-The new and improved Rosenkreuzstilette -Freudenstachel- trial version out now!-
The C76 version of Rosenkreuzstilette -Freudenstachel- is available for download at [erka:es] website since August 2009. And this demo shows that there is a lot of promise in this upcoming sequel. Here's what's new in the C76 trial:

- The game's Prologue is playable and you get to face off with Eifer Skute!
- Liebea's stage is not playable in this version of the demo. However, you get a sneak peek of Sichte Meister's new stage instead and the weapon Freudia gets from her.
- Zorne and Grolla has newly designed stages to play.




-The long and overdue delays of Rosenkreuzstilette -Freudenstachel--
Yes, unfortunately Rosenkreuzstilette -Freudenstachel- has been delayed (possibly) to Summer Comiket 78 due to unfortunate circumstances and [erka:es] inability to show up at Winter Comiket 76 for those who hasn't heard of the news by now. So we'll have to wait even longer until the long awaited sequel becomes available. Sorry... :<

If you want to talk about anything Rosenkreuzstilette-related, this is thread to go~!

One more thing: Luste owns! owo

Wait, we seriously haven't had a dedicated thread for RKS before? I find that very hard to believe.

And that bugfix things perplexes me. My laptop has Windows 7, and it plays RKS perfectly.

What happens in Vegas stays on Youtube. I also stream on Twitch from time to time.

It's possible that it was locked after being SuperJustified!

Are you talking about the "Rosenkreuzstilette -Freudenstachel- Has a Release Date" thread that got locked because of Superjustinbros.?

No, not a news thread, but another general RKS discussion thread here. It might've been pre-crash.

To Cephi: I've made the update of the news above about that.

To Sato: This is a general RKS thread, the recent news up there is to fill anyone in who hasn't heard of anything about RKS lately, like the delays of -Freudenstachl-.

So, what you're favorite weapon? Mine is Luste's rendition of the Metal Blade. >w<

Yeah, like that poster I have in my room: Sh*t Happens... but I did find something neat in the demo. Read all about it here.

Was there ever a cited reason of why they couldn't be at C76? What kind of things held them back, and such?

I mean, I'm happy to see that the fan base has still done a lot to be supportive, but c'mon now, erka! 8D

Maybe the time away has at least been fruitful to some degree. I'm hoping for more than just Grolla as a secret char this time.

@ GothamAnswer and VirusChris:
You can download the trail versions of Rosenkreuzstilette and Rosenkreuzstilette -Freudenstachl- from [erka:es] website. You can also download the English Trial version of Rosenkreuzstilette from Darkside Translations.

Rosenkreuzstilette Trial v0.02a
> Trial v0.04a update

Rosenkreuzstilette -Freudenstachel- (C76) Trial v0.03a
> (C76) Trial v0.05a update

Rosenkreuzstilette English Trial Version by Darkside Translations

@ Dr. Wily II:
My guess is that it was developmental issues. The latest update to the trial version was easier than the original v0.03a trial and the C75's prototype (v0.01a) versions of the game. I have to get in touch with TrickMasterMint of Schwer and Schwer Alike with that.

It's about time RKS saw some attention on the Rockboard since the English version was released.  Vixy said that she'd be making a news post when there was something to report, but I haven't seen anything aside from Viper's review in eight months (strangely, a Japanese-only minigame in the Lucky Star PSP game warranted a mention...).  I don't like popping in places for the sole purpose of plugging my own projects, so I'm glad Viper brought up the subject.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again:  Darkside Translations and Dark Translations are not one and the same.  One handles translations of all kinds, while the other focuses almost exclusively on [twin slasher]-themed porn games (naturally, the second link is totally not work-safe.).  Please don't confuse the two.  We predate Dark by a good seven years (even though we only released one project during that time...); it's just a coincidence that our names are so similar.

That said, Mint has been in close touch with [erka:es] lately.  If I'm understanding the situation correctly, Isemiya and WOMI were facing problems in real-life and have not been able to touch Freudenstachel for quite a while as a result.  That's also why they couldn't attend the last Comic Market.  I'm not about to fault them for keeping their priorities straight; I've had similar problems with my job hunt and my father nearly being killed a few months back (incidentally, today's his 65th birthday).

Anyway, if you like what you see in the demo, be sure to pick up the full version of the game from DLsite.  The full translation was released back in July; the v1.06a patch will implement the latest executable and tweak a few things here and there.  Ryusui for Breath of Fire II fame is currently touching up the script, but that won't be finished for a little while.
This is TDOMMX signing out.

@ TDOMMX:
I apologize for the mistakes that I've made. Once again, my tendency to over-look something or making some sort of big mistake is often a problem of mine when I type quickly with a lot of text. I'll go make the corrections now...

Sure.  :)

Personally, I enjoyed the game's soundtrack. My favorites are probably Luste's theme, the Stage Select theme, and the Weapon Get theme.

Well, if anyone hasn't heard by now, the RKS Fan Contest has been extended to April 15th.
What the hell happened to the Freudenstachel news thread?
Well it appears that ol' Letty (aka TrickMasterMint) is going through internet difficulties, so the deadline for the Fan Contest is delayed until further notice...

Sadly, yes. though some think it's not a good idea. :|

Well, since there hasn't been much activity in this thread, plus now that I'm a member of Schwer and Schwer Alike, I should probably write something.

Aside from a small preview of Trauare's sprite in ~Freudenstachel~, there has not been any official updates from [erka:es] in terms of official concept artwork, or screenshots/videos of ~Freudenstachel~ itself. I predict the full game will be released by August 22, 2010 the latest, which is only two months away from the current date. (If it doesn't get delayed a third time)

For all that we've been made to wait, Freud's game should hopefully be a full-fledged sequel by now.

Also, it would be appreciated if not only Grolla and Tia returned, but all of the bosses could be playable characters, not unlike how things were done in Rockman Rockman/MMPU. After all, I still would love to play as Sichte. 8D

We'll see though...

Well, I just pray that something doesn't happen to WOMI, Isemiya, or anyone at [erka:es] that would make them cancel ~Freudenstachel~ altogether and make all the waiting and anticipation all for nothing. ;O; If they any other character in the RKS becomes playable, Luste is immediately going to be my mainly used character.

Well, the current scheduled release date for RKSF will come in about two more weeks, and since they haven't announced any sings of fallback (delaying or canceling), I can assure that we will be seeing ~Freudenstachel~ this summer.

In the meantime, just incase anyone's interested (not sure if I should post this, but...), I did make a forum that is for Rosenkreuzstilette-excluvise discussion half a year ago. Here's the link if any of you are interested: http://grollaseyfarth.forumotion.com/

Well Letty has finally came back with some updates regarding the fan contest, plans of interviewing [erka:es]' Isemiya and WOMI to get better insight of the Rosenkreuzstilette series for the Westerners, and Letty has plans to make a fan-made light novelization of Rosenkreuzstilette ~Grollschwert~.

Full post: http://schwer-muta.blogspot.com/2010/08/there-is-nothing-my-posting-cannot-cut.html

If you any questions you'd like to ask [erka:es], comment and Letty will see what he can do. I've sent in some of my questions already.

Well, the [erka:es] blog was updated yesterday, and it appears ~Freudenstachel~ has been delayed for a third time.
