I was going to try it out, since I recieved and in stalled XP, but it didn'twork.

The program would boot, but after that, all I would get is a "no hdd installed" error.
*sigh*

I'll tell you how it all goes.
(Btw, how big is your windows partition? I have a 320gb hd, that was bought and had a little less than 300gb when used. I gave around 61gb to the windows, and plan on taking off 11gbs with camptune)
I too have to 320GB/300GiB harddrive; that decimal (10^9) and binary (2^30) difference really stands out at these large sizes. My old computers hard drive was 30GB (about 27GiB) though so I never noticed the difference till now.

I split it evenly in half because I hate uninstalling games (I play old ones alot) or running off the discs (silly since all the cases are lined up in easy reach) and I plan to do multiple installs of a couple games so I can use either language (planetarian and little busters are at the top of that list). I have about 100GB open on each half right now but I still need to install some applications since I have a Windows family and work with Windows at school (sadly...)

If you cut it down to 50 GB you will still have a plenty of room though :) I know quite a few people who squeeze into 32GB just for FAT32 support and it works out alright.

EDIT: (Missed your last post at first). Couldn't find the hard drive at all? That seems like a strange error even for beta software. Atleast you didn't lose any data (though hopefully you have Time Machie configured)

I learned my lesson many years ago when I dual-booted Windows and Linux on a mere 20GB hard disk -_-. I underestimated how much crap tends to accumulate on the Windows side, requiring constant reinstallations since I didn't have unallocated space to grow into. I suggest whatever you originally have intended to have allocated for Windows, add 50GB to its partition.

Vista tends to grow in size (and you can't shrink it!), but XP doesn't take much space, 4GBs should be enough for windows + office. For games and another programs I install them to another partition (that also containt music, pictures, video etc...).

True, I barely use my windows side though. It is kind of sad.
After I picked up a $60 mac office 04, I have been using the windows side less and less. (Only for games now.) It is kind of nice, cosidering how I can leave it in japanese uni to play eroge and visual novels. (No problems with clannad, kanon, or other games. I just wish some games I have had patches so I can actually read the story rather than click and prey.)

MS Office < OpenOffice.org < iWork ;)

Yeah the only weird thing with leaving it in JP is how things like Apple software updater (used to get drivers etc) will insist on running partially in Japanese but also partially in English.

Yeah, you get used to the yen sign very quickly. And, yes, a number of applications will decide that you want a Japanese language interface, but hey - I've got no problem with getting a bit of extra practice with the language =P

Agilis' and Healeth's policy has always been "it's done when it's done".

:3 Though, I find it how funny and ominous this post made in 2007 has proven so true. And ironically, I wonder if they can even make this kind of a deadline? o_O;

Meh, either way. I sit here waiting patiently, looking forward to it, no matter how long it takes. Take your time guys!!

Hm, Ag, or someone on the translation "team" (If I may say so ^^;;)

What is the plot of Narci2? I've actually been wondering that for these longs years. I know it is a prequel, but can you give us a quick runthrough on the story?

If not, no prob! :D

There's quite a bit of content in Narcissu 2 that can be compared to Narcissu (1). And depending on your view point, you'll either like it or dislike it.

My friends that have also read it can be pretty evenly divided into these two camps. The people that like it view it as interesting and well-used juxtaposition of the two games whereas the ones that dislike it insist that it is bad recycling. I am in the former camp.
