About this mod


This mod is simply a retelling of Act 1 and Hanako's path with a different main character in Katawa Shoujo. I wanted to add more depth to the story by making a different main character as well as put my personal spin on it. I recommend that you play and/or complete Hanako's path without the mod to see how good the original story already is. Any positive feedback and constructive criticism is welcome.
I hope you enjoy the mod! With warmest regards, CGanimated1227.



Requirements


To use this mod, you must have one of the the Open Source versions of Katawa Shoujo, which can be downloaded from the downloads section below.
I have not tried it with the original version of KS nor the 2.0 version of KSOS, but I'm sure the 1.0 version of KSOS works perfectly. Both versions of KSOS can be used by those for those who wish to create some KS mods or translate dialogue to a different language. You also need WinRaR to open the archive containing the mod.


Installation


Before I go through the steps, the files in this mod overwrite the original files in KS's "game" folder, so look inside the mod's and KS's, and make a backup folder to put the original files IN the KS folder in case of future use! First, find your Katawa Shoujo Open Source directory (Ex, C:\Program Files\Katawa Shoujo Open Source).Next, copy the "game" folder from the mod directory and place it in the folder called "KatawaShoujoOpenSource" in your Katawa Shoujo Open Source directory.

Updates & Misc Notes

Updates:The continuation/True ending of Katawa Shoujo:Burning Hearts has been added to the downloads section. Get closure on the story if you felt like it wasn't enough!

Notes:Help needed for art in possible future addition.
The FMVs are the same because I don't know how to edit those, so sorry about that inconsistency.

That sounds interesting, but I can't do any art from scratch. I'm only familiar with MSpaint and that won't be of much help to you I'm sure. IDK if I would do anymore with this game, but I support the idea. You could check with ARCemX, but he is always busy. He hasn't responded to me on steam for a while now. It's good that you are doing this, dispite what some might say.

Can I get some help? Everytime I replace the original "game" folder with the mod "game" folder and try to run it, I get this.
I'm sorry, but errors were detected in your script. Please correct the
errors listed below, and try again.

Don't replace the ENTIRE folder! Merge the mod's "game" folder with the directory's "game" folder and when it asks to overwrite the files, accept or make backup copies of the files in the original game folder then accept.

I see no reason why they should be offended. I endorsed the original game and I just wanted to add my spin on the game. It's not like they would try to make anything more as proved by their april fools "jokes". So if they decide to bully me(especially after I put my soul into this thing), this will effectively be my response: Youtube.com
