This is a work in progress side scrolling game made by the Japanese author Inui. The game is about Aya, a bounty hunter who tries her luck on the frontier planet, Ishukun to earn 100,000,000 so she can pay back the loan from what she bought her new ship. There she meets a hostile community who would rather rape her then help her. Fortunately for her when she was just about to give up she meets a rather nice duck...

Problems & workarounds...

Windows 8 doesn't support this game at all.

Netty said:
If anyone is interested I've an small launch app that has an workaround for Windows 8, it basically does the following:

- Disable Windows Audio
- Start HOTB
- Wait 30s and enable Windows Audio again
- Close launcher

/ UPDATE

Maybe the thread starter or HOTB dev wants to include it but decided to just upload it to Mega so everyone can choose to use it or not, source code is included and requires .NET framework 2.0 which is already included in Windows 8:

mega:///#F!RYZzDJAC!BlKuJYjA_t7_JFDI57nsrg

The launcher might require elevated rights (i.e. run as admin) if UAC is set too strict as it needs to restart the Windows Audio service.
I was pm-ed this...

whatamisupposedtowrite said:
The fix for HOTB on windows 8 is easy, just download this file and put it into system32 folder, click "yes" to replace/overwrite.

Code:
http://www.mediafire.com/download/9fvjtj0tvhbewh0/dmsynth.zip
It is the dmsynth.dll file from a windows 7 system, and fixes both hounds and nanocrisis.
The dev uses slow & akward hosting site

Fenril said:
In addition, I think I should mention a few things about the downloader site that the dev uses.

Namely, AFXC limits downloads and limits traffic. There is a queue system that it uses and you're pretty much going to be stuck solving captchas until you're next in line. And there's an sidebar on the left which tells you when the next download becomes available.

Needless to say, whenever a new update comes out, expect to wait for a while due to high volumes of traffic. You're probably going to be solving captchas for a while unless you're patient enough to wait a few days for the traffic to die down.
Keyboard not working

Unplugging controller...

depending on the system game can still think you have one
try opening config.ini file and changing "select=2" line ([controller] section) to "select=0"

Re: Hounds of the Blade

Was there anything wrong with the old thread? Well, other than the fact that it was over 200 pages long, I guess?

Re: Hounds of the Blade

If you're having trouble getting the forced oral blowjob scene with the green Cobolio gangsters when you fight them (in the Slums--I'm not talking about the first fight of the game), it's probably because it was disabled after fighting them one time in the Slums. Here is a fix to keep that animation part of all the subsequent fights with them:

Sorry guys, I thought Cobolio bj was removed. It still there. :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: Only works for the first time Aya enters the Cobolio Hideout. Get 0 HP and crawl toward one of the gangsters. :)

Here is how to trigger it again and again
Go to " Hounds_of_the_Blade20141123/story/a9 "

In there you'll see "start_2_1" and "start_2_2" files. Open each with notepad.
scroll down and you'll see,

END-------------------------------------------------------------
FlashOut(-200,c_white,0.1,30,SE_b_gard,3)
global.event_flag[66]=1;
A2("goto_room_scr(1,6,1,CommonStartBattleRoom)")

Then you have to add " global.event_flag[0] = 1; " to the third line like this.

END-------------------------------------------------------------
FlashOut(-200,c_white,0.1,30,SE_b_gard,3)
global.event_flag[66]=1;global.event_flag[0] = 1;
A2("goto_room_scr(1,6,1,CommonStartBattleRoom)")

Have fun.

Save file with all other scenes.

Re: Hounds of the Blade

I seem to be having script errors after using the translation for the second time you meet the vagrant in the alley. Is there anyone else who is seeing this error?

Re: Hounds of the Blade

This thread was remade because old thread was too long and the link to Inufactory's site was buried DEEP in pages.

Re: Hounds of the Blade

Have you tried the latest version (#4) of Wessex' translation? I reported that bug and he fixed it. I tried it out, it works now.

Also, issues with Wessex' translation are to be directed to the translation thread (linked in OP).

Re: Hounds of the Blade

Something that should must be mentioned, hopefully somewhere on the front page or first post, is the compatibility problems this game has with Windows 8.

Let's be frank. Windows 8 is crap and hates this game. Fortunately, after doing a quick search, I found a post in the old thread which gives a workaround for issues people have to make it work on Windows 8.

In addition, I think I should mention a few things about the downloader site that the dev uses.

Re: Hounds of the Blade

I just discovered this game and i'm on Windows 8.1

And yes, it seems it's almost impossible to play this game if you are on windows 8.

Even taking fenril's advice in account doesn't help, the game keep crashing right before the first fight.

Re: Hounds of the Blade

Best advice to fix the win8.x issue is to take the free upgrade to win10, because win8 is crap and win10 is not as crap.

Win7 still da best though.

Re: Hounds of the Blade

*Sniffs air* Ahh, nothing like the smell of a new thread.

I'm actually pretty happy about this because it was getting extremely confusing trying to navigate that old thread, at least in my opinion.

Also, keeping an eye on the site, no upload yet, looks like the pic might have just been a tease. Who knows when we'll actually get the update, though.

Re: Hounds of the Blade

Say Wessex, if you ever plan to keep OP updated for some time, maybe I can request adding a Change log?

The creator posted a preview of the next enemy before: The orc enemy. It took months for the next update. I believe he complained about technical issues on his twitter (not sure though). Time periods between updates vary in length. He had a rather fast-paced run for the last few months, i.e. he came up with new content every 1-2 months. Once he took more than half a year. I guess he programs the game in his free time. I wouldn't make any estimations based upon some preview pictures. It comes when it comes (no pun intended)

I don't freaking remember what was when updated in the game in the past. So useless you can pull a list out of nowhere then I cant help you.
