Mapping Contest submissions end, judging begins. Also: Sven Co-op represented at Comiket 76.

Posted by SvenViking on Oct 3rd, 2009

Just to let everyone know that the Sven Co-op Mapping Contest ended recently, and we're currently preparing to begin the judging process. Looks like we have some pretty impressive entries -- judging may be tough! Once the winners have been selected, all entries will be collected into a map pack and released on

In unrelated news: A couple of months ago, someone named Takeaki requested permission for his literary club to publish a Sven Co-op beginner's guide in Japanese. The guide was distributed at Comic Market 76 (or Comiket) -- the world's largest handmade comic book fair, held twice a year in Tokyo. It also hosts a large number of user-created PC games, etc. Comiket 76 attracted an estimated 560,000 (predominantly female) attendees over three days.

I recently received a copy of the magazine itself, and have taken some pictures for anyone interested. Though I can't understand the text, it looks really useful -- including information on how to install and configure Sven Co-op without English knowledge, various tips and tricks, etc.

More images: Index, Page 9, Page 16, Page 24, Links.

Takeaki also included a sort of catalogue, and the latest episode of Umineko no Naku Koro ni (Warning: Spoilers in Wikipedia's Plot/Story sections), which was pretty nice of him! Now to wait for the patch.

Too bad the anime adaptation is highly inferior to the actual Sound Novel. Go on 4chan and say that the Umineko anime is awesome... go on.

The main problem is trying to cram too much story into too few episodes, imho. :/

It's mostly a translation guide -- explaining how to install, set options etc. if you can't read the English text.
