>TFW I just realized you can play Visual Novels on this
So insanely convenient. It's a really good device for reading Mangoo too
I have a nexus 7 too.
Is there any way to read with an text hooker though? I'm still studying my moonrunes.
>using an Android tablet
Get a real tablet.
Have you tried torrented mkv's? I'm running Asus's own version of the Nexus platform, their memo HD 7, and can't get the subtitle files to display. I've tried at least four of the most downloaded media players.
Other than ones with native build as listed in the database, there is RenPy builder for android.
For some reason all RenPy games I've tried on my W7 tablet burn through battery faster than 10bit videos or 3D games unless I manually throttle CPU to 400MHz.
I don't really luke tablets but they do seem great foe vn's.
I've played a few vn's and games that are text heavy to the point of basically veing vn's like corpse party, and the ability to lie in bed while playing makes them so much easier to actually finish.
Still, there is something magical about playing them on pc but it's hard to get hooked without enormous breaks between games for me.
Google "Visual Novels on Tablet" and follow the FuwaNovel link. I used that and it works perfectly.
It might not install the sounds, though (voices, BGM), so you might have to do that manually.
VNDS ported VNs
The real question is why would you want to? I can sort of understand things like >>115566003 said about lying in bed, but I have a really nice monitor and almost never leave the house. Why would I play video/VNs on an inferior system? I always find it weird when I see people on the bus watching videos on their tiny little phone screens.
The issue is i've never played a visual novel before (besides the Phoenix Wright games and 999). I actually don't want to watch anime on a device but wouldn't a visual novel be nicer on a tablet?
If I wanted to play Fate/Zero, Ever 17, or Saya No Uta would it be as easy as downloading these apps, downloading the visual novels, and drag and drop?
>watching videos on their tiny phone screens
The average person/normie has basically no standards for media quality.
This is why things like hulu and iphone "photographers" exist.
As long as the video us playing, their somehow satisfied.
Pretty much all that use the kirikiri2 engine.
It's Fate/Stay Night
Anyway, I feel like playing VNs is annoying on a tablet, it's too big to lay down in bed like you would with a phone, and you get tired of holding the tablet to play the VN. In my opinion, laptops are better for VNs.
Some of those phones have 1080p screens, and the people on the bus don't have the option to take your 24" monitor around
>Was going to get a Surface
>Boss got a new think pad and was going to get rid of pic related
>Decide to take it off his hand to see if I like the whole touch pc bullshit
>Works perfectly for VNs and even plays some modern vidya
>Install bluestacks and have Android anyway
>1080p Rayman Fiesta Run
It's no surface, but goddamn is it great
most windows x86 tablets are pretty fucking good, just don't get anything with older atom CPUs and you are golden
I got an LG11t540, shit is pretty good and the slide out keyboard is great for when I have to do some work, it also has 2 normal sized USB ports, shut is great for a portable Vidya machine
Use MX player and fiddle around in the settings, I don't remember what I did but I know I got them to work on my tablet
>Sort of getting bored of reading manga and LNs
>Buy a Nexus 7 to spice it up a lil bit
>Find out I can read VNs on it
Words cannot describe how ready I am.
Ahhh too bad. So I still need a laptop with a touch screen.
I just want to use hand writing recognition in OneNote so the notes I take can be searchable. The ipad works well for a hand writing note taking tool but it is not searchable.
I certainly will. I've been working my way through the classics for sometime now. Hopefully this will make it easier to finish them up.
no, rt devices are all shit
x86 tablets are great provided you don't buy one with a horrible CPU
don't listen to him, get a dell venue 8 pro and the pen (its sold separately) or get the ThinkPad windows tablet if you want something with a digitizer pen
w8 tablets are much better than iOS or android tables, and you can even emulate android apps if you really need it
Windows tablets are expensive because they're 86x arch and not arm. But that means you can run any desktop programme.
I don't have a tablet but I have a Nexus 5. I've considered setting up rdp to play vn. Is that feasible?
I run matlab on mine, and it runs fine, the only chugging up I get it is when I try to run modern PC games on it, Brutal Legend ran, with horrible slow downs whenever I turned the camera around, but HL2 ran maxed out at 1080p
You're just now figuring this out?
I play Superstar Catalyst Project on my phone, adding KS later on to finally finish all the routes.
Wow, you sure got fucked over for a tablet, Only worth getting the e-ink version and only if it's purely for reading.
If you want to be able to do that + any other thing a tablet is the way to go.
Been thinking about getting this ASUS VivoTab Note 8 for manga and maybe drawing.
It's the same price as the Nexus 7 I think ($199).
There is just that one thing at work you know you learned in so and so course, but there is one part you are not clear about.
Of course you will look it up again.
I've been looking for something to replace my (stolen) Cr-48, haven't found anything promising in a while, at least that I can carry around easily since I'm a weak nerd. I don't mind about it being too small since I have manlet hands.
he is talking about the Lenovo thinkpad windows tablet 2
although I wouldn't recommend it since it has the Z2760 CPU and its outdated and not as good as the new Z3740 the Dell 8pro has
check the CPU on your tablet, its an ARM one? give up
its an Intel one, maybe, google it around, you might need to do some tweaking and buying some third party cables and keyboard to be able to install windows on it
gonna be honest, the keyboard on the 540 is not the best, and some you will have to learn to really hit HARD on its keys to be able to write without having to go back and fix misspellings because one key didn't register
however you don't really get better physical keyboards on anything up to 12in in size both in tablets and laptops, 15 and up is when the keyboards start to get good again, and by that size, just get a ultrabook instead
Are you able to play any VN on iOS/Android or only certain ones with compatible engines?
Also, is there a database like vndb that shows what engine each VN uses?
I would love to start reading VNs in bed since i don't have the attention span to do it on a my desktop. Thanks/a/nons
I've done it before, it's pretty good. Only thing is with some games clicks don't register. Also splashtop doesn't have a 1:1 pixel option which really annoyed me. I've been wanting to try other remote desktop shit like RDP or VNC to see if it's better.
you dont replace windows, but you can emulate android
if you replace windows with android why did you pay more for a windows device when there are X86 based android devices? (they are just like normal ARM based android devices though)
And yes, there is sound, if anybody was wondering. The only thing paid gives you is the added ability to access your computer from an internet connection outside your house.
Windows tablets are terrible because they either are part of a race to the bottom to create the cheapest devices possible or ludicrously expensive. The cheap ones all come with shitty screens, crappy build quality, and underpowered processors that can barely run Windows smoothly. Not to mention that the experience of using Windows on a tablet is even more excruciating than the experience of using Windows in general. The thought of being able to run "full Windows programs" on your tablet might seem appealing at first, but then the combination of the terribly small screens and the lack of a physical keyboard end up making the endeavor pointless. Most Windows programs aren't designed with touch input in mind, and even the most basic tasks become a huge chore to do with your fingers, especially on small 8 and 10 inch screens.
On the other end we have the expensive options that also have a myriad of other issues. Lack of expandability and repairability. Constant overheating or thermal throttling. Simply being too bulky and heavy to be able to be used as a tablet comfortably. And the price in general. You're looking at over $1000 for most devices in this category. The Surface Pro 3 starts at $799, and is a pretty decent device, but you also need to spend $129 on a keyboard cover if you want to use it for something other than content consumption. Everything other option is way worse. They simply aren't at a competitive price point compared to other options.
What does /a/ think of the Nexus 6? /g/ is split.
The free version, I've compensating by adjusting the zoom level to an image like pic related. It never fits perfectly.
No idea, never tried
I'm actually trying to do that right now by using Splashtop.
It works, but the quality could be better. Also, I'm getting some problems with the touchscreen, but I might have fucked up somewhere when messing with the config.
get up with times grandpa
weak CPUs are not a problem ever since Atom Z3740, there are people running Dark Souls 2 on these CPUs on low settings with stable framerates
there are several models with physical keyboards
10inch is not small, is around the same size most netbooks, and if you REALLY need huge screens, the Yoga exist for that, though enjoy carrying around a 16 inch tablet, or even worse those sony 20inch tablets
for programs that are not touch friendly like old Windows 2k software and stuff is better mouse driven there are mouse emulators that make an area of the screen behave like a laptop touchpad, driving a cursor
over heating is not a problem anymore either
neither is weight
Dell 8pro is cheaper than a Nexus 7, and its not even the cheapest of its configuration if you don't mind getting no name brands, shit can get as cheap as 100 bucks if you go Chinese
Surface pro 3 is a good machine, but if you want something with a physical keyboard on the same specs, there are models like the sony VAIO SVD13223CXB that have keyboards
update that pasta, anon
Because laptops are already portable enough. If you're going to be carrying a laptop around, you're going to have a backpack. A 8 or 10 inch tablet + a retarded keyboard case or something will not be any portable than a laptop in that situation.
I read Fate for the first time on my Nexus 7, I don't know if VNDS fix it already, but the Realta Nua patch didn't work before. I didn't even realize about that until last year and I had to read the three routes again in my desktop to be able to watch the new shit. Also, effects and zoom don't work in Android.
Asus A100, LG 11t540
both with built in keyboards and more portable than a laptop
anon, I have a laptop that I carried around all the time, ever since getting this, I haven't touched it in months, the only trade out I have up was the HDD space and the raw hardware power, as an atom CPU is much weaker than an i5, but the most I play on this is old games and some emulators, so its not that bad of a trade
You must have had some shitty xbox hueg /v/ tier Alienware gaymen laptop or something then. Most modern laptops are perfectly portable. The extra inch or two and or extra lb won't make a noticeable difference in a backpack compared to a tablet.
16in, which is pretty much the standard size for a normal laptop and around 3 to 4lbs in weight, with an amazing battery life of 3 to 4h at most and if I only do text edition
now compare that with a 10in, 10h battery life that weights 1lb and its thinner than just the monitor part of my laptop
which do you think is the most portable one?
if you really want to do multi tasking I suggest something bigger than 8in
10 inch is the minimum to do multi tasking and Im talking about 2 windows, maybe 3 at most in the screen
I would not recommend the 8pro if you want to multi task, maybe the Asus t100 if you don't mind the plug in keyboard (it does have an extra battery and HDD inside though)
The Asus t100 does not have an extra battery within the keyboard. In fact it actually has worse battery life with the keyboard plugged in since it has to power both the keyboard and the hard drive now.
its not a gaymen laptop, it was actually more marketed as a media consumption laptop when it was for sale, it can barely run modern games on low settings
its not a behemoth, most basic 16in laptops are around the same specs, dimensions and weight as it
the only interesting part of it is that it came with a BD burner for some odd reason, also a SuiCa card reader
>All these faggots who would rather use that buggy piece of shit called VNDS than the glory Splashtop 2 where you can just start the game on the pc without any compatibily issues, high FPS and adjustable resolution
My bad. I am looking for a tablet that can open a pdf without too long of a loading time, while running OneNote in the back ground, and the ability to switch easily between them.
is the Dell Pro 8 or ASUS Vivotab tier of tablets enough for that or should I aim for the ThinkPad tier?
Did you know what Splashtop did to us?
The original Splashtop 1 cost money to buy. So the original customers bought it. Then lol and behold, the company switched to Splashtop 2, made it free, and made the original buyers pay extra just to access the same function they paid for.
