>What the everloving fuck is this?
>Wow those sprites/tunes/tits are pretty neat
Can we get rid of the per-area character thing?
It's a good idea but I'd rather not have my client keep shrinking down to nothing just because I hop around areas to see what's up. I'd rather have it the way it was before.
I'm kind of confused how that works anyway because it seems like multiple people can have the same character at once now so I don't see why the forced switching is necessary.
>I was there for the making of this whole case
The shitty detective testimony ties in Hope you fags can unravel the mad mans spool
Welp, maybe we could suggest het to make it for the next OC contest or something...
My psychiatrist says I should play more social video games to help with my crippling social anxiety and I love Phoenix Wright and just learned about this game today so I think I'll dl this evening
Wew lads. No time limits. Ever. Again.
A judge should hand down a verdict if the case is going nowhere, but should never enforce a time limit.
I've kind of been throwing around the idea of making a doc with short little character profiles for people who aren't as familiar with the series or every single game, so they can get caught up. Most people tend to play somewhat in-character.
Good luck, man. I gave testimony last night and was shaking like crazy the whole time, but it was still fun as fuck.
No, the time limit should be
Ray from that last Area 2 case here.
I am feeling pretty stupid that we lost the case because we didn't ask Atmey about what time the murder happened, but we were super pressured by that time limit.
I don't even necessarily think that all time limits are a bad idea, but 2 and a half hours is too short.
Good luck, anon! I'm in the same boat so I hope this helps you out. Everyone is really nice and welcoming for the most part.
Here's a glimpse of my progress in Young Raymond Shields.
I think I need to fix all of his gifs and make them a specific size to work properly.
I thought of a few ways to implement the putting paper in his mouth and the swallow animations as well.
>/v/ thread is kill
So....t-this is how we die huh?
I mean I'm completely comfortable here in /vg/, I don't know how long you expected a thread in the fastest board on the site to last anyway. That's hardly a sign that the game is dead, otherwise every game besides /v/'s current flavor of the month would be a dead game.
>More people were watching the stream than ever before.
Our average was around 30-40 people everyday and our highest was around 90
We're not even past 20 right now
The case was Turnabout Hairspray, which is archived on Guardly's twitch highlights. Long story short prosecution was on suicide watch after a pretty solid asspull on the defense's part, so both Teikan and Edgeworth were losing their collective shit.
I'll always laugh at these screenshots, they're great out of context but even better if you were there for the case.
Let's not forget this fucking asspull at the end
WE WILL GET THE TRUE END.
Honestly if I had to show somebody one case to convince them to play AO, it'd be Turnabout Hairspray. Solid reasoning from everybody, both witnesses and the detective were great, defense scored a ridiculous turnabout in the face of overwhelming evidence, and it all ended with a heart wrenching cliffhanger.
For future reference
Here's the tier chart for witnesses, support, and detectives so far.
Thoughts and opinions?
Yep, all I need now are the judges
If he's in your courtroom, he probably did it. Manages to incriminate himself every time.
C U C K S L U T
Same with the gym case, although it was Phoenix who ultimately dropped the ball with the homophobia motive iirc.
I'd join but I'm streaming area 3 right now, sorry.
Maybe after this case is done
Why the fuck do we need two people to pick up what the lead missed? One was fine in the games, one should be fine in this.
It's just a role added to get as many people to play as possible, but it makes most cases a chatterfest.
The DAs almost had it. They were fumbling the whole way, but they finally managed to find something solid. The hype was real, people were sweating, hanging on the edge waiting for the witnesses to be found out, only to FUCK IT UP.
FUCKING R U B B E R.
it won't stop making more of these popups
>that sad ending to area 2 where the witness thought the victim had betrayed him and confessed killed him, but the victim is spirit channeled into the courtroom and forgives him, then the living witness kills himself and they go float off into heaven to continue their homosexual relationship; all of this to Steel Samurai Ballad.
Shit was a tearjerker.
the only thing better than god forgiving you for your sins is the person you sinned against forgiving you. Matt definitely went to heaven on this one, senpai.
Also, NEW CASE AREA 2 BOYZ GET IN HERE. Need witness, prosecution, and co-def.
Just look at his face. How can someone who looks like that be innocent?
They're similar in that they're both ad-libby. I don't know how far Area 3 is, I'm assuming early as I think they just finished with the detective or are currently with the first witness.
Area 2 is in the middle of preparations, but witnesses are all filled up.
Area 2 has more people and the cases are generally more diverse, ranging from silly and nonsensical to a bit dark.
Area 3 is slightly more focused on role-playing and tends to be a bit more serious.
I got so far in my Young Shields effort, then it was pointed out to me that a Young Shields that functioned almost exactly the same way mine did exists.
At least my buttons are better.
>Literally JUST finding out Manfred has pierced ears
Good job, Edgey boy. After 18 long years you finally solved IS-7.
Look at his ears. Normal humans don't have teal ear lobes.
I did what it says but it still gave me the same message
The easiest way is to play the games and/or spectate some cases to get a feel for how it all works
Join as either detective or support defense.
If a case has pre-written testimony for a detective, that's the role for you. If it's improv testimony, you'll want to join as a support def/support pro. Keep up with the testimonies as best you can, keep on the look out for contractions between two statements or a statement and a piece of evidence. If your lead doesn't notice the contradiction, Pipe up and say "Hey, Nick, doesn't this statement sound kind of wrong? Even when you look at this piece of evidence?"
Redd White here
What the fuck was that?
Did I at least do okay?
>do complete reinstall of game and files
>still doesnt work anymore
I don't even understand, nothing changed on my computer, I just turned it on and it stopped working.
>putting all of the information on a google doc
But my case would crumble if some details are visible for everyone. My case is gonna be Damon Gant Boogaloo, but it may be a bit too convoluted to hand out different pieces of information to each individual witness and lawyer?
>yanni yogi having a heart attack on the stand
>the defense and prosecution running to the stand to perform CPR
>the witness dies, Steel Samurai's Ballad plays.
>Palaeno brings up a picture to the judge, says it's his son.
All the initial testimonies are scripted because that is how it works, witnesses are heared in advance of the trial, but from there it's improv. I'm 90% done with the case, I just need to find out who the killer should be. The problem is that two of the witnesses have some information they mar or may not confide to their lawyers (may be incriminating), but it might not be easy for them to have a private conversation without letting everyone else see what is written. There is no way to whisper to people, no?
MY NAME WAS ASSPULLO ON THE DOC FOR A REASON LADS
GODOT'S HOBBY, IT ALL MADE SENSE IN MY MIND.
>Judge throws out 3 penalties and moseys right along to the next order of business
Dunno if I should like him for taking no shit or not for that bare flicker of a reaction, but this clusterfuck's getting good.
Is there a way to remomve the green boxes from the game?
Was this the greatest moment in Attorney Online history?
For those who aren't lazy as a motherfucker.
Are you seriously too lazy to click 3 little buttons?
Probably detective, since you just need to go over the evidence and how/why you think it happened
As witness you need to come up with a testimony inserting yourself into the crime scene somehow
Ask any docfag, they'll probably have some.
I know I have a decent amount, but most of them are shit cases nobody will remember, and a few amazing cases.
Wouldn't video records be better than the case docs, though?
>Gant's autism causes the judge to suffer from a heart attack and die mid-trial
Open up the char.ini file in an editor
Change the selected text to the area you want to be at
def, wit, pro, jud, hld, hlp
Any character can be at any position. We had the Payne Train as defense the other night, facing the wrong way and everything.
Also it takes effect right after you save it, no need to reload the game or anything. Just make sure that it's the char.ini file of the character that you're currently playing.
Could you tell me how to do these other emotes? I'd like to be able to object.
Okay can someone please explain to me what DA Support is supposed to do
These cases have two DAs, to Prosecutors, and then Defense has like, some cheerleader on the sidelines. Why? What purpose does this serve? I get that you have one of those in the video games, but the lead Defense player already has a co-counsel, so why do they also need a Maya?
Yeah, to be honest I would understand the point of Support if there was only one lawyer on each side but since both sides already have a co-counsel the role is kinda pointless?
>low on players
>people insist on picking borderline irrelevant roles like support instead of witness
confession time: I don't know who the fuck half these characters are, I haven't played any AA game since Trials and Tribulations back in 2007. My perception of anyone introduced from Apollo Justice onward is based almost entirely on your portrayals of them in Attorney Online.
No, but would it be unreasonable if I was? There's been a ton of situations where we've had enough players to begin a game, but we're left sitting around talking for half an hour because one or two people want to be a part of the game yet don't want to commit to a proper role.
>But I've been in games with plenty of useful supports!
That's true. But if that's the case, then play as lead roles instead of ones that are ultimately completely optional.
Its the case because most leads miss details. Not everyone is perfect despite what they may think. Leads have the most responsibility but that doesn't exclude supports from being useful. At all. They can still ask questions and help cross examine. Also people hate being witness because they have the hardest job. Go easy on them.
Your argument is invalid because you are claiming that support role is useless, despite it's the more versatile one, you will never know if a support will just sit here or actually carry the entire case from behind.
>hey can still ask questions and help cross examine
They shouldn't. Thats lead and co roles.
Support is "hey what about that piece of evidence / testimony".
If the support is actually doing lead/co roles, then you have 3 people tripping over each other.
At the point, the support should just be the fucking co.
If both lead and co don't know how to move on, then support can being a part of the debate.
And they can also ask additional questions during CEs AFTER the lead pressed a statement.
But yeah, their role is supposed to be giving hints and focus on things lead/co missed, or since they don't have to actively carry the case, they can spend time taking notes on everything and plan a strategy
New guy here. How is the defense ever supposed to actually win this? The AA games rely on a tightly-knit narrative with very specific holes in witness testimonies that very specific pieces of evidence slowly erode. If everyone's improvising from the start with a vague idea of what happened, its kind of hard for something as tight as the stories from say, Turnabout Serenade or Turnabout Trump being whipped up on the fly
It kind of seems like the DA just has to pull insane theories out of their ass and hope everyone rolls with them
it all depends on the witnesses
sometimes they give good contradictions and you can convince the court there's something deeper going on, and sometimes you have a rough case with rock hard testimonies.
I've made my first case, do I just send it in the chat and let people jump on it, or should I go through some kind of quality control first? I could post it here so anyone more experienced than me could give it a yay or nay
>let people jump on it or should I go through some kind of quality control first?
Letting people jump on it is the best possible quality control, as long as you have plenty of time to participate and think the case is solid enough running it is the best choice, you can see if there's anything you should fix and also better ways to play through it.
>Friendly reminder to Pros:
When the DA presses a statement or objects to something, give them the time to explain their theory / contradiction before screaming "What's the relevance of this? / Do you have evidence of this?"
Pros don't need to reply every time the DA opens their mouth.
If you watch some actual Ace Attorney CE gameplay, you'll probably be surprised to see that the Prosecutor keeps their mouth shut during most of the CE.
And when they do talk, it's when they have an actual counterargument ready. Instead of saying "Irrelevant, move on."
I won't be able to participate tonight nor tomorrow, do I just postpone it, then? It would be fun for me to not join it at all and see what happens, as I've made some outcomes to the case on my own. It'd be interesting to see how different my scenario will be from the real outcome.
>do this as lead pro
>people wonder if i'm afk
>let DA dig their own hole
>wow fugkcing prosecution is asleep
>speak up with an actual counterargument and btfo the defense
just fucking kill me senpai
>manfred objects to literally every thing, true to character
>makes being def a living hell
judge gets mad and penalizes him
Some guy is streaming, so I'm thinking of watching the replay whenever I get the time. I'm pretty satisfied with my case, I think it has a lot of potential, but of course, I'll see if it stands the test. I think I'll post it after the current case ends.
>One side literally destroys the other with one sweet counter move
>No reaction from the other side, the witness, or even the judge
>Friendly reminder to faggots like you:
This isn't a real Ace Attorney game. This isn't single player. This isn't the defense attorney show. If you want everyone to behave EXACTLY like the games, then get off AO and get back on your DS. If prosecution plays like you want most of the time they will be doing literally nothing.
Sounds good, but remember that no matter how well done or simple a case might've been made people will always find new ways to add conspiracies and hours of debate, it's part of the magic of AO.
I finished editing all of Young Shields's idle sprites to fit within the game properly!
I'll definitely finish him sometime today.
I was made aware that there is already a Young Shields out there, but his animations don't lead into one another very well (and the buttons are sort of unappealing) so I plan to make this Young Shields perfect, hopefully in time to make it into the next update.

And also here's the missing AAI2 fantranslation english voice clips I pieced together for anyone who missed that.
Mostly. The events that ushered in 'the dark age of the law' are in AJ but aren't elaborated on in DD. It's a significant plot but not required to enjoy DD.
Apollo gets more characterization in DD than he does in AJ honestly.
Hey guys I've been replaying AA:T&T because I never finished it.
So friendly reminder that if you have no "motive" for a witness you could always ask them to testify about their relationship with the victim (even if they are complete strangers they can add a few contradictions, if the player is smart obviously)
Anyone gonna try to revive the /v/eekend thread today? It's still the weekend after all.
Making an improv case is a lot harder than I thought it'd be
I already made two, but none of them had any major success. If anyone wants to make it, here's the OP picture I used. Remember to include the download link, but not the full OP.
>Witnesses and a few guys tryhard to make a case better and " save " it.
>" Inner " fags and salty fags literally take more place than actual case solving
>Judge is a piece of shit
>Judge finishes with pic related
THANK YOU FOR WASTING MY TIME.
Trucy here, I had the fucking case solved I swear.
Fucking pros keep stopping me from saying anything with their shitty inner speech.
This is the full theory I had.
Matt had noticed Layton was not himself, at all.
Layton would never need help for a puzzle, yet showed this to Matt, along with a pistol.
Matt claimed that Layton was ready to kill a man.
Matt was worried and came to the scene.
"Layton" was killed, but a puzzle was left in the defendant's wallet, the same that was shown to Matt earlier today.
It was a plaque number for a boat.
They were to meet up at a lake to go on board, which is why the defendant himself was there as well.
The Layton at the scene had a pistol.
It was a case of self-defense.
The real Layton was to be found with the third witness.
It was Don Paolo all along.
Ahh. At last I truly see. The defendant is still completely guilty however, and you still completely lost. You had no idea what your goal was the entire time, and spent 3 hours asking questions about the most inane and useless trite.
Because you fucks derailed it.
You never seemed interested in letting us explain the situation.
It's improv for a reason.
Why do you even fucking play the game, you literal Cuck.
>wasn't part of the case, but...
Now that isn't a bad explanation for the case, but you had way more than enough time to get through that prosecution or not. You had a good argument but presented it in a crappy manner.
not disagreeing with that at all, but still, you didn't really present your ideas in a very orderly or timely manner at all, and it really just looked like you were completely bullshitting
Dude, you are absolutely delusional. The prosecution's job isn't to help the defendant find the truth, and the defense's job isn't to find the truth. The defense's job is to find the defendant not guilty, something that you were completely unaware of and didn't even try asking questions to save your witness. Your bench was a complete failure the entire time, only spouting conjecture and asking questions that had already been answered to try to elicit a different response. The prosecution tried to stop you and get you on track, but you kept on getting your dick sucked by the judge, and continued to ask the most irrelevant questions ever. Even if the prosecution hadn't have interrupted, the trial would have had exactly the same outcome, the prosecution was just trying to get you to stop badgering the witness and stop wasting hours and hours of our time interviewing witnesses over irrelevant shit.
Area 3 needs a Detective and Witness 1 in order to begin.
Trudy was the only good one in that shithole desu
Apollo leaked enough salt to soak up an ocean
Mia and Franny were too buzy trying to up each other in le bantz
And Greg waited far too long to push things
The less said about that Judge the better
>this chart is actually right about people
Mia here, I was trying up until the very end. That was when I realized that literally nothing the defense could do would change our position, so I just started bantering. And even then, I wasn't nearly as bad as the cancerous inner voice shit that might as well have been white noise for all it added to the case.
Trucy spent the entire time going on about "le puzzle" and "meme time gap". Why do people give the supports more credit than they deserve? Nobody on the defense bench was competent at all.
>Why do people give the supports more credit than they deserve?
Because it's normally the support themselves who posted that, presumably in an attempt to fight back against the "support is useless" notion (which it is).
goddamn it someone please have a solution to my problem
I'm able to pick most characters, except a few like Phoenix and Judge. If I try to pick one of those it says "This character is protected with a password."
Someone know how to fix this? I've already reinstalled twice.
Eh Im not sure, everytime I see someone trying to ask for a role (for example, if co-def has to leave) after the game began the Judge says NO, unless its a witness that bailed and need a replacement
>All of the other businessmen were drunk
>Marsh is LITERALLY the ONLY person who could have shot the gun
The DAs should have tried to indict him and end the case there.
DOC maker here. No one took them out except one asshat. I put the support roles back in myself, but they had already left. Oh well.
>haven't played an AA game since like 08-09
>this makes me wanna get back into it again and replay some of the games so I can play the characters right

Totally, I've even started to play through the AAI2 fan translation now
not as gay as pic related
Question: Comments collected from User’s Voice say that although he’s gaudy, there’s a fondness for Mitsurugi. How was creating Mitsurugi’s character?
TAKUMI: Compared to Naruhodo, Mitsurugi wasn’t easy to think much up for. I had to play around a lot with him. Once I included the fact he was rich, I was able to steadily add more to his character.
Q: When you say “rich”, fans (and I) obviously think about his high class tendencies.
T: I wonder why they would think that? (laugh). Maybe he breeds big dogs? He’d put the white cravat on their necks. So that he could keep them indoors, of course he’d have a big rich mansion. “Hey Pesu, what are you barking about?”
T: The dog’s name. (laugh) Mitsurugi can’t communicate well with people and horses, so he can only talk to Pesu. (laugh)
Q: Only with Pesu. (laugh) You speak fondly of him.
T: If Pesu died, I think Mitsurugi’s world would completely collapse. Then he’d be a dangerously unbalanced man.
Q: The foundation of Mitsurugi’s heart, Pesu. (laugh) Ordinarily he puts up a strong front, but in front of Pesu he can show his weak side?
T: Joking aside, Mitsurugi does have two faces. At first my plan was to write an unlikeable man. But…in Futabasha-san’s Capture Book, Suekane-san drew “Mitsurugi likes the Steel Samurai” in a comic. (laugh) That’s the first time I thought a likeable man would be cuter.
Q: Naruhodo and Mitsurugi, which do you think is the cutest?
T: Naruhodo is a lot like myself, but I’ve never thought of him as “cute”. I can see things from his point of view, is all.
Q: Then, from Naruhodo’s point of view, Mitsurugi is…
T: He’d probably say he’s become a pretty cute guy. (laugh) Mitsurugi’s character’s flavor really came out from around “Gyakuten Saiban 2” on. In that game I wanted to really expand upon Mitsurugi, so I thought up the episode where he rescued Naruhodo from that pinch.
Guys why the fuck do the .ini files of the new unofficial characters look like this on my end?
I didn't touch them or anything
I'M SO SORRY.
I WAS OUT OF OPTIONS.
I DIDN'T KNOW WHAT TO DO.
I WANTED TO PIN IT ON MARSH AND CAMMY BUT I JUST COULDN'T DO IT, THE JUDGE WASN'T HAVING ANY OF THAT SHIT.
>this Wright in Area 3
I love you mysterious Wright player.
IT'S JUST EVERYONE HAD THE ANSWER BUT ME AND POLLY.
THE ONLY THING I COULD DO WAS MAYBE FORCE CAMMY TO TESTIFY ABOUT WHEN SHE GOT THE JOB.
BUT EVEN IF WE HAD GOTTEN THROUGH ALL THAT SHIT.
WE STILL WOULDN'T HAVE HAD PROOF.
Payne here, glad to hear that you had a great time.
was apollo, judge was busting our balls the entire time, we barely had any wiggle room to come up with theories, and the witnesses got progressively less helpful as they went along.
