Ghost School - Small Update

A quick notification to let you guys know that our translation of Ghost School has just been given a small update.

Based on user feedback, we decided to implement a choice at the start of the game asking the player whether they’d prefer to have message sound effects initially set to on or off, so that the option is now more obvious to players.

Do note that this was already possible in previous versions with an inventory item (which is still in the current version), so it isn’t necessary to re-download the game if you wish to toggle text sounds.

In addition, we also fixed a few minor text and graphical errors we had initially missed. We would like to thank everyone who has played this game!

Well, well what we have here?

It had to be the second try that could put me completly into this game. Personally I am in love with all that classic japanese horror elements such as the dark long hair girl ghosts, cursed houses with a vengeful spirit or similars. So this was a Must Play for sure! It has all you are looking for if you are into this kind of things: an abandoned old school with a terrible curse, a terrorific atmosphere, some young guys here and there and a mistery that claims to be solved while Dead walks through corridors. But most importantly of all, It's difficult af that's for sure!

The place is gigantic and without a map you will get lost after 5 minutes if you don't do a hard work of memorisation. Good thing this boy is a badass who has already gone for the hell of the first resident evil games several times.

Putting that apart, yeah, this game is a hard one. There will be many times where you will have no idea of what to do or where you have to go to continue. Solution? Explore! That's it, there is nothing more than go back where you previously were and check if something new did appear. Secondly, if you are going to play this, be sure to have much free time or at least, play a little everyday. If not It will even more difficult to continue without getting tired of visiting the same corridors again and again.

But on the other hand, some dialogs just don't make much sense in its context. Manabe for example, has a "unique" way to treat with spirits that want to kill her. And I thought that there will be more deaths in the true ending, aren't we in a living hell full of dreadful ghosts?


Anyway, very grateful for bringing us this game, MemoriesOfFear! Will be looking after others projects-

Hi,I have a similar problem to the user Miharu71...
I'm stuck in the library << Unable to find Audio/SE/Flash1 >>
It appears immediately after the ghost.


We apologize for the inconvenience!

We just finished going through the entire game to ensure there are no more missing file errors, so if you re-download the game, it should now be beatable from start to finish. Your saves can also be transferred by simply copying the "Save_.rvdata" files from the old game folder to the new one.

I hope this graphic helps you out with that part with the library game.

In addition, you can also refer to our walkthrough for the game if you get stuck on anything else.


Perfect.
Thanks for the help.

i ment just a straight hallway


Ah, now I know what you are talking about! Unfortunately, you can never really exit out of the hallway, so you must find a way to get that ghost to talk to you. In order for you to progress further in that area, here's an abridged version to help you out:

- First you must make sure someone else joins you, so try exiting out the front doors.

- If you have already done that, go to the Music Room and after the events there, pick up the key by the piano.

- Then go to Former Classroom 2 and watch the events unfold there, and pick up a key there.

- Go across the hall to Former Classroom 1 and follow it through to pick up a Wooden Board outside in the courtyard.

- Then go back to the warping hallway and examine the top corpse for a key to the Rooftop.

- Now go back to the Music Room, then keep going northeast to go to the Rooftop.

- Once you see the full story, now go back to the warping hallway.

- Now you can talk to the ghost there to finish that scenario.

You can read the "SCENARIO 4: CHINATSU" section of our walkthrough for more information.

Hey! Cordial comment to say keep up the good work!
Thanks for bringing this to our attention, Miharu71, and I am sorry for any inconveniences.

I have fixed it, so please re-download the game. Then move all of your "Save_.rvdata" files to the latest version of the game, and you should be able to continue.

I'd like to play the game, but the message "couldn't find Grahics/System/TileA1" keepspopping up


Okay, this issue and any similar ones should now be fixed in the currently uploaded version, though if anybody encounters any further issues, please let us know so we can fix it as soon as possible!

Ah, that definitely is a bit of an issue; thanks for bringing that to our attention!

That particular file is one included with the RPG Maker VX RTP, so it looks like we accidentally forgot to include those files in the latest version of the game. Sorry about that!

I'll let our editor know immediately so she can upload a new version with those RTP files included as soon as possible, though if you want to play the game in the meantime, you should be able to do so if you download and install the RPG VX RTP.

In any case, we'll make sure to mention here once we've uploaded a version that includes those RTP files.

Can you tell me how to deal with the Ghost in the Art Room?
Thank you for the kind words, everyone! And I can't wait to read your review, KerriganSaila!

Does this developer have any other RPGM games?
Kurousagi has made two other games. One is a short game called Ayame's Errand ~Seeking Radish~ (菖蒲のおつかい ~Seeking radish~) for RPG Maker VX Ace focusing around a convenience store. As of this post, it has yet to be translated.

The other is an escape room game called Entlaufen (エントラオフェン) for RPG Maker VX Ace which is currently still in development. You can read more at their Twitter and blog.
Thank you for translating! That's very kind of you and great job. I wrote a review,it's still pending. Does this developer have any other RPGM games?
Thanks for translating. Fan translations are very often underappreciated, and I know a lot of work goes into it.

I'll be sure to give this a try tonight!
