Damedame thread, episode 16 should come out soon. Yotsumoe gave us a fun puzzle to solve, and this episode should be pretty good.
Nothing in prerelease pic, so let's just chill out and talk about the subs, and maybe solve last night's puzzle while we're at it.
Stop putting all this ARG shit in the OP.
I've been off the hook since this started to be a full week thing. I liked it better when I only had to worry about finding a thread a week, and it didn't interfere with my real life or took my whole free time. But anyway, I'm kinda bored right now, so I guess I'll give this new puzzle a shot.
If you IRC folks have any insights into the puzzle, please let us know so we don't start from scratch or do the same things you have ruled out.
>Last night's puzzle
What are you talking about?
What we can tell about the puzzle is that it's probably solved through shifting the rows left and right.
That's why it's cut off slightly on the left and added to the right.
So far we're not quite sure of what we're supposed to do beyond that, other than that the numbers probably have to line up in the columns in some way, and it might make a picture in the end. We're unsure.
The monogatari page used to have just the number 116 on it, now it has 141.
The puzzle itself can be found here: http://yotsumoe.tumblr.com/hanjimonogatari
It's not a full week thing, it's only when they release an episode. It really shouldn't even be that often, but the IRC crew has a hard on for diving straight into the ARG.
Did no one recreate it on excel or any other similar program? It would be quite useful.
That's some Nisio-tier shit right there.
Reiner and Dasuma did.
Can one of you guys give us the spreadsheet?
Someone draw a comic of /dmdm/ growing a 10 foot boner the instant they see a puzzle, then the twist is that it isn't even a puzzle.
What do you mean by "give us"? Should I upload it somewhere?
I've seen some murder solving threads during the week, though, and I guess Maddie and Yokkyun were answering the reds and blues. The game was fun, but once I missed a thread, I kinda felt left off.
Well, we can't manipulate the values without the sheet.
Hey Archie, can you give us a rundown of what you learned from Dice?
Don't worry, they made it so now the corpsegame only starts on Saturdays. It only happened once in a monogatari thread, but that was a while ago.
Inclusion is funclusion, after all!
Nines made a pastebin so it'll be easier to keep up. http://pastebin.com/KPbPVk6S
>Do Maddie's friends regularly refuse to play with her?
That was probably when an episode of monogatari was released. If I had to separate this whole thing into arcs, then this murder mystery arc isn't really hard to follow. It's way easier than the hidden files before because it's all linear. But Hell, you could skip the entire thing and just come back for the answer (but you might miss some character development).
Have you seen that twitter conversations between BKITNY and Maddie? They seem to be such good friends.
Oh yeah, Maddie and BKITNY confirmed for yuri lovers.
Poor Yotsumoe. NTR'd by his own tulpa.
>talking about "eating sweets"
They had sex.
Don't go down that train of thought, it's a pure sisterly relationship.
What makes you say that?
Maddie doesn't like or understand why people sexualize her, and grils can't love grils.
When has she said any of this other than grils not loving grils?
Dice said so when asked.
This cannot be verified officially, however.
>Dice said so when asked.
How much have I missed? When did people talk to Dice? Why can't he verify it?
>Why can't he verify it?
Damedame cockblocks us by saying that they can't.
They want to keep info from us so they can use it for leverage.
Archiver is, according to maddie, 'dating' him. There are a few rules, one of which is that while anything said by dice can be repeated and attributed to him, but it is unlikely to be officially verified.
Not missing much, nothing important was said, apart from Maddie might have been doing some of the stuff she has since before subbing, so it might have been going on for a lot longer than expected, and that Dice is in direct contact with Maddie.
Also that she doesn't understand why people sexualize her.
I think we should start making the threads when the episode comes out.
I've been saying that, nobody listens.
That might be for the best, actually. Since almost all of the expository information (via hidden texts) relating to the damedame has been released, the prerelease stuff won't be there. So, making the thread when the episode comes out from next week onward is probably a good idea.
But then they might miss a PAZURUUU XD XD XD
I think it would also allow the viewers to enjoy the subs before the puzzles start.
I can't keep up with this shit anymore.
Post the deito picture.
That's a legitimate argument, and I agree. The more fun people can have and enjoyment through the subs, the better. It used to be a bit different, when we actually got puzzles, games, or texts before the episode came out, but the way it's changed means the order should change too. Episode release, then thread, discussion of subs/the episode for a while, then corpsegame/whatever else comes. Makes the most people happy.
I just caught up with the whole thing.
Maybe it wasn't the best idea to do this at midnight, I'm getting legit spooked.
Please don't post the ARG stuff until the ARG actually starts rolling. I hardly come into these threads anymore because I see all this ARG stuff in the OP and realize I won't be able to talk about the subs AT ALL.
I'm glad you think so. You're probably the most influential person when it comes to the threads in terms of meta, so it will probably be okay if you think so.
That's part of the fun. It's even spooker than that when it's real time. Like the finding of the hidden tumblr, or if you were one of the people whose full names were used in their entry puzzles.
But people talk about the subs, though when it happens they get accused of just pretending to watch them to keep the thread going.
Except people do talk about the subs. You can just ignore the ARG shit and talk about the subs if you want to. Nobody's going to hold a gun to your head and force you to post about the puzzles.
>But people talk about the subs
They really don't. All I see when I do actually come here are some screenshots. No discussion.
Quote any talk about the subs in this thread. There is none, because even though the OP said to talk about the subs the fact that he also paste the ARG links made it so the subs were instantly overshadowed like they always are.
I won't from now on. I've just gone on the assumption that there's not much to talk about in terms of subs, at least compared to the other stuff, but I realized that it won't make a lick of difference if I just post the pastebins after the ARG stuff (like corpsegame) begins. The ARG stuff in the OP is probably a bit daunting to other people not involved as well and it might have the adverse effect of scaring people off.
I'm taking all the feedback I can get into account. Next weekend I'll start thread (if there already isn't one) when the episode is released, and not include any of the ARG stuff in the OP, only bring it up when the corpsegame/some other ARG part of it starts.
It makes everyone happy that way. Ganbare happy!
But the episode didn't come out yet, did it?
But there's 30+ other episodes they were never discussed, aren't there?
There's no talk about the subs in this thread because the subs aren't even out yet.
But then arg people might complain when there is something hidden in the pre-release picture and they have to wait.
I'm not sure what you want to discuss. What's your favorite quote from damedame? I don't see much else to discuss, and that's done when posting screenshots. People screenshot what they like, after all.
>Oh no, I have to WAIT to say "hidden files?" and then wait for someone else to solve it!
This. Only like five of us actually work.
I'm just not vocal about it.
That would be mukkun, nines, archie and some nameless anons.
>[DameDame!] Log Horizon - 16.mp5
There's a lot of people working. But most of the time, we don't post about it, because we're not really solving anything. Like how we tried thousands of passwords for rars, or when we're trying to solve a puzzle. Unless we find the solution, we won't post about it most of the time, so it seems like there's not many people working on it.
Ok, remove archie from the list and add one anon or some kind of irc hivemind, whatever you like.
With the recent trend of nothing hidden in the prerelease pic, or very little hidden, it might just be that there won't be anything hidden in the future. The hidden texts were probably to set the background for the damedame, and now that the background has been fleshed out, I don't think we'll be getting many, if any at all, in the future.
If they do continue, however, it's a situation where it's damned if you do, damned if you don't.
There is no thread for prerelease: IRC isn't including people and doing shit all on their own! waah waah
There is a thread for prerelease: ARGfags shitting things up for the Subbros! waah waah
I think the best solution is to make the thread when episode comes out, try to include the most people by starting the ARG stuff later in the thread, and then hope people are understanding about that.
Now let's drop the subject before the fun gets completely killed.
Let's face it, every answer they've ever come up with has been from a spy that was given the answer because they're incompetent.
I think Phi is going the solo route and just solving everything by himself.
How can he be so consistently based?
Because he's actually Sam.
So he's alive?
You forgot Seph.
Please don't spread lies.
Those goddamn catholics.
It's the french, man.
are you suffocating? no breathing?
Don't give a fuck if I cut my arm bleeding
I'm just gonna get it out of the way
>Maddie will never use her demonic powers to bind you so you can't move, then use her hair to bring you pleasure until you cum, staining her hair white.
Fuck, I forgot to inb4 sexualization and no.gif.
spit some lyrics, maddie
A lot of music references in this episode.
>staining her white hair white
But her hair changes color on its own.
WE RIDE TOGETHER
WE DIE TOGETHER
Let's talk about the subs now.
Best quote so far.
I liked how a lot of things that were long sentences were condensed in subs to one or two words.
Me too. It's amazing how easily you can shorten annoyingly long sentences.
You wish. It takes a true master of the English language to say something in three words that other people can only say in ten.
There is another sentence overlapping.
It's true you know, you should always look both ways, for motorcycles especially.
>You like die already
It's just a continuation of the other sentence, I think.
Is this a new font? Feels unfamiliar.
Or this is something to be taken seriously and is a message to the viewers. Coincidences when dealing with DameDame are none. We're already dead.
Based DameDame teaching us to live our lives correctly and to drive correctly.
Sometimes, the curtains are just blue, Battler.
Impossible. The curtains are blue because they were designed that way.
But that doesn't mean they're blue for some reason like "I'm making these curtains blue to show you I want you to die!"
Or because it was dyed that way, or because the material already had that color.
That's the designers choice of material as is DameDame's choice of font usage and position which led the subs to overlap.
Based DameDame admitting their mistakes and fixing them.
Sometimes whoever produces the curtain has no choice when he only has one kind of material and no dye.
As someone who has used Aegisub before, I can tell you what happened. She used HS' timing and duplicated a subtitle line to make the translator note, and then left the first line the same length as the translator note by accident.
But DameDame has choice on time and position. Let's say font can't be changed for consistancy purposes.
Best scene this episode
>Let's say font can't be changed for consistancy purposes.
Wrong, the font has already changed once. She removed the shadow from the font.
Marielle's lust is so obvious
This made me laugh pretty hard.
This makes sense.
Are subbros satisfied with the way this thread has been going now?
No, it's just screenshots and one guy that thinks nothing is coincidence.
Then what should we talk about?
Then bring up something to talk about instead of waiting for something to come up.
I was, but then you said that and now it all seems forced.
So I was thinking about this puzzle we had yesterday, and... my brother came up with something (if you want to keep discussing subs, please, do so and just ignore my posts (I'll make two). We can always discuss it later). If you take a look at the numbers, there's almost always an adjacent number that shares a number (as in, 29 an 93 share the 9). So I colored all the squares that were "connected" this way, to see from where to where I could "go" by following this method. I'm including diagonals, and I'm cosidering numbers like 2 as only 2, and not 02. My next post will cover this last case, where I consider 2 as 02.
As you can see, almost everything is connected this way.
So, what I want to say is that maybe this is some kind of labyrinth.
Also, forgive me if I made any mistake.
There is something else to be mentioned. In the original image the 27 top left and the 37 bottom rigght are in italics, it may mean something.
Start and finish for the maze?
Start and Goal? Now that you said that, it really looks like a labyrinth to me.
Doing it with diagonals is too easy for a Yotsumoe puzzle. If it's a maze, there's no diagonals allowed.
I thought about that, too. I'll try to see where we can go without diagonals.
I almost choked
I thought of this yesterday but I haven't finished it.
Just looking at that makes me lose my bearings. I know all the lines are straight, but they look crooked. It's hard to not get lost in that shit.
Ok, this is it without diagonals, and not taking single digit numbers as having a 0. As you can see, it's not as connected as before (obviously).
Heres the spreadsheet I was making the other day if anyone wants it.
How are you deciding on the colors for these? I don't understand the categories.
It's like a map. They are regions that are connected somehow. If you see two things with the same color but that aren't touching, then they are not connected. They are different "countries".
Whatever is the same color connects, but since there's so many sectioned off areas he would run out of colors if he didn't repeat colors. In short, teal is the only color that matters.
I get it now. I'm brain problems, thanks.
I think this is the solution if it's a maze.
I think he's right, actually.
Why? It makes sense.
It's a board, not a globe. If there were some hints about it being connected like that then I would buy it, but there's not.
Look at the far right.
>If there were some hints about it being connected
There are. It's super obvious too
That's not on the top or bottom though.
it's a cylinder.
Ok, missed a connection there, between 58 and 75, in F and G 10.
As you can see, it's solvable if it's a maze, even if you don't use diagonals, but you have to either accept that 0 are in single digit number, or that >>100501213 is right.
It's a checkerboard, as in flat.
yeah meaning its a discus tower, not a rubiks cube, jeeze
Same with diagonals, it would be too easy if it was like >>100501213 said.
that last column belongs to the right side of the first column, if you didnt notice, the first column's numbers are off center.
this was figured out yesterday
If it wasn't like a cylinder, then it would be unsolvable. Try working at it backwards, from the 'end'. You quickly run into the same block I did.
And before someone complains nobody told them anything, it was mentioned here. >>100493879
Where's the block you're talking about? If it's a maze then it's supposed to have dead ends.
there is no block, its a "block" that is not actually blocked but becomes a block when you deny that its a cylinder
No, he means that if you go backwards from the exit, it is impossible without going around the side.
Unless you go to the right and end up on the other side of the 'board', you cannot go past only a short distance from the 'end' onward.
I know what you mean. I want you to point out where you can't get past.
do it yourself if you can solve it without using it as a cylinder.
>Point out the dead end
Burden of proof, the dead end doesn't exist unless you show it.
If it was flat there's nowhere to go.
If you care about the puzzle, quit being lazy and work on it yourself! Otherwise quit complaining!
I didnt say to point it out yourself I told you to solve it without it being a cylinder.
you saying that I'm not pointing it out as a dead end without it being a cylinder just means you think there is no solution doing it your way.
I just rekt you.
Nice catch actually. It's still a cylinder probably.
Ok, guys, stop arguing. It's solvable either by it being a cylinder, or by accepting that single digit numbers have a 0... that is, as long as it's really a maze.
Ok, so what now? We wait until Yokkyun tells us that we're incompetent again, or does someone have another idea we can try to solve this with?
I don't think trying this is getting us anywhere.
well the solution works.
theres multiple ways of reaching an answer in math
if it is not a labyrinth then yes it isnt getting us anywhere
Where? To questions? To art? To his e-mail?
I don't know. Email is probably the best solution.
Ok, give me a second. The first email he gave us still works, right?
Yeah it should.
just do it via question thats how we played connect the dots with him before
I would assume he checks his tumblr a bit more often.
But I can't attach pictures... I can through the "submit art" one, but that seems silly.
Solved it my way
He just deletes the actual submitted art anyway. Tumblr's submit function doesn't work the way it looks like it works on his tumblr, he would have to actually save the picture, delete the submission, and edit the gallery. He basically just deletes all the submissions anyway, may as well send him that.
Ok, sent it to his email and to the art submission form. I guess we wait now.
No notes for Maddie's turn?
Corpse game is over.
There are. Her turn was 「GAME BOARD 三 TURN 三 」
He hides the URL when the game isn't active.
For her truths, I meant. Sorry for being unclear.
The corpse game page is taken down whenever it's nobody's turn. You can access the other pages though.
He propably means the notes by nines, there were none to maddies turn, just the truths.
I've been meaning to edit it to include a small observation about the "did not see Battler" not really meaning much if they saw him but he wasn't trying to escape at the moment they saw him, but it's really not large enough to be worth editing the entire pastebin because pastebin doesn't remember which lines I've highlighted so I have to go back and re-highlight them. Other than that there's not really much to say about Maddie's truths.
What do you think about the wording of her truths?
>Maddie no is see Battler try to leave lab.
>Sam no notice Battler when try to leave
>Sam no see Battler when try to escape
i think these could be interpreted as Sam escaping so maybe Battler attacked Sam.
That's a good point that's probably worth editing in. It could just be Dame english though. I'll put it in.
Just noticed this part was written in blue without being a quote from the OP. Has this been done before?
Probably a mistake. Maddie should know how to use the blue truth.
I was thinking that Battler set a trap for Sam who escaped when he triggered it, and then he met Maddie outside and they went back in to find Battler.
Or you could interpret it that sam didnt see battler when battler tried to escape from the culprit.
>I was thinking that Battler set a trap for Sam who escaped when he triggered it, and then he met Maddie outside and they went back in to find Battler.
Try formulating a blue truth out of it when the game begins.
Will do, captain. The only thing I can't figure out is the footsteps, but I can probably ignore that if my theory just focuses on what happened after that, right?
Probably. There's been several ideas floating around about the footsteps and not many of them have been refuted.
Probably a reference to the blue catholics thing earlier in the episode.
It now says solved.
Someone solved it.
pls respond I think I'm on to it.
Will do, thanks.
It's another possibility. Think up a detailed blue for it and propose it.
Who was right though?
I guess I was asking too much when I expected to have fun today. Good night.
sugar, spice, everything nice
these were the ingredients chosen to make the perfect little girls
but professor tachi accidentally added an extra ingredient to the concoction
thus the sakura trick was born!
using their ultra super lesbianism
haruka and yuu chan have dedicated their lives to kissing girls and saving anime
I feel clever now.
the flat board one. Do you really think he would make the board spherical, and then still make it solvable without a sphere?
If you click on solved in the Hanjimonogatari page, it takes you here:
"talented person monogatari"
>not "talented personstory
We said it was cylindrical, and it clearly was if you paid attention.
If it was then it would only be solvable by using the cylinder shape. But you didn't have to, because it wasn't supposed to be.
whos solution even was right.
if it were a labryinth then many people solved it, if it were a different kind of labryinth then
it was solvable by both methods, and it was clear that you could use both methods, the last column with no numbers is clearly the left part of the 1st column, if you noticed the numbers in the first column are off center.
That was Eins. Battler the Third.
All the numbers are very slightly off center. Face it dude, he wouldn't go through the trouble of making the board "cylinder" if it didn't even matter. He wouldn't make a maze with two solutions, it would be way too easy.
I know it was him.
If he was right then he would've gained a picarat by now.
He wouldn't have bothered making the last row without numbers either.
both ways work whether or not it was cylindrical or not.
>it would be too easy!
This is the kind of overthinking that makes people overlook possible solutions.
Oh, come on, stop arguin about who was right or who wasn't. Does it really matter? We had fun solving it, and we reached two possible solutions. One of us was right (or maybe even both), so what's the point in discussing who?
Is 4chan dying or something
>A puzzle for fun
>Anything to gain
Thank you based Damedame.
>Mukkun ruins the game by never picking a participant
Everything that lives is dying. Why do you ask?
Czech the page.
Yotsumoe would have put up running out of time if that was the case.
I mean is it happening right now?
>background music is from professor layton
Is 4chan alive? Then, yeah, it's dying. You're dying too. As in, every second that goes by makes you closer to death, so you're actually dying right now. It may take a lot of time until you finish dying though.
My appchan X won't auto-update after I post until I refresh the page.
be careful on that edge.
Woah fuck off
Wow, I almost forgot that some of the IRC users have admitted to being underage.
incentive for non-fun seekers to join in on the fun
I was saying both were right, I'm just sad people can overthink and blind themselves to solutions that are hinted at pretty hard just by thinking its too easy. Yokkyun might one day just use overthinking as a red herring itself.
Come on, his question was stupid, so I answered with something stupid.
>Hinted at pretty hard
Dude, there's a thousand possibilities as to why that column is there, and only 1 is your answer. There is no reason to give a puzzle more than one answer, in fact doing so would be retarded. Especially if it's a maze.
besides you should be able to tell that it was a joke.
And no one likes that faggot
>what is math
>there are multiple solutions to getting the right answer
>maddie posted/deleted this yesterday when we were stuck on it
>This maze uses similar digits to find the path
>Must be math
You're terminal, Steve.
Yotsumoe never said anything about that being the correct way to solve it, and second, he only said it was solved after >>100503392
That doesn't mean your answer was right at all. And as for your math bullshit, you could replace all those numbers with two letters for each box and it would be the same puzzle.
He takes a while to respond. That means that is not the right answer.
but that isnt me
But you're arguing it, fuck man.
Lets just go back to theory-crafting for corpsegame as neither of us will stop at this rate.
>thread is awful
You do realize that we're normally waiting way longer than this for anything to happen at all, right?
If you haven't flagged the DameDame torrents for A+ status, you're not even a fan.
The thread being bad because nothing happens isn't his fault.
We had a good episode discussion.
At least we solved a puzzle. That's always good, isn't it?
Back then we solved a puzzle which revealed some dark secrets leading us to more datamining and secrets.
It was more fun that way in my opinion.
He's deemed us too stupid to solve his puzzles. This is a training arc.
>food for brain for the fun!
Just wait for tonight's corpsegame if there is one
Madeline Silver @ArgentMaddie 23s
What if more monogatari comes out since we solved the puzzle? Double DameDay!
I totally can't wait for all this blue truth and red truth spam with no conclusion in the end.
>Twisted Nerve is a 1968 British psychological thriller film directed by Roy Boulting and starring Hywel Bennett, Hayley Mills, Russell Napier, and Billie Whitelaw. The film follows a disturbed young man, Martin, who pretends, under the name of Georgie, to be mentally retarded to be near Susan, a girl he has become infatuated with, killing those who get in his way.
Is she calling us retarded?
Think a little, the next one will obviously be the last.
No, skewers are going to take over puzzles 5-8.
Madeline Silver @ArgentMaddie 3m
It's a clue. The culprit became infatuated with DameDame and killed everyone who got in their way (Battler). Now then, who can we say is acting retarded?
>Now then, who can we say is acting retarded?
Every single person in these threads?
There we go! DameDame viewer was the one who actually killed Battler, metaphorically anyways. DameDame viewer has been an important character from the very beginning as has plenty of reason to murder Battler. Obsessed with DameDame they followed Battler and as Battler watched Sam enter the password, DameDame viewer watched Battler enter the password. DameDame viewer is the true culprit!
Isn't that battler the thirds Sephiroth theory?
>A twisted nerve, a ganglion gone awry, Predestinates the sinner and the saint
I'm surprised at how much it makes sense in this context.
Madeline Silver @ArgentMaddie 1m
Yesterday when we were doing the puzzle we asked for help in the IRC and Maddie posted a video making fun of us.
This is probably the same thing.
But what is it trying to tell us this time? We solved the puzzle, and there's nothing for us to... oh, wait, she's killing anyone that gets in the way of the fun?
She's telling us not to be retards.
>Nothing left to do
Yeah, there's only a dozen turns that we can look at.
>and there's nothing for us to
Solve uncertainty box yet?
What? You mean the corpse game? It's no one's turn right now, is it? So we can't really do anything.
Believe it or not, I keep trying from time to time.
>we cant really do-
yeah its not like we could come up with new theories or improve already thought out ones or anything
Look, there's only going to be one more turn, right? So there's probably enough info to find out who did it, if not how they did it.
Wait... there's only going to be one more turn?
who said anything about one more turn.
Umineko only had 4 episodes where the witch was running the game. We've already had 3.
Beatrice and Battler, the true games, are games 1-4. The fake games are 5-8. I can't see how we being as incompetent as we are could solve it without having it spelled out for us in game 7.
If you haven't sacrificed a human or sheep to Maddie, how can you say you love her?
But Battler solved it on EP5. Would that mean that we have to surpass Battler?
No, it means we only get 4 episodes of having the witch give us the game like he did. If we wanna be huge faggots like Battler was then we have to make up our own games afterwards. It won't help though, since we aren't Tohyo.
I think the word you were looking for is desire* her.
It probably means Mukkun who is the intended participant of the game has to solve it by game 5. And won't give us the answer until game 7. And in game 8 we'll be framed as the culprits.
MADDIE WO KIRISAKU OH DESIRE
Umineko joke, not lewd.
Yeah I forgot, I havent watched the anime in forever
But there's a big difference between this and Umineko. In Umineko, there was someone trying to take up the guilt: the witch. Here, no one is doing it. There's no "truth" that we are not believing and denying. We are simply trying to find it, and we are blind. We don't know what the "witch's" condition for winning is.
I said in the beginning that we need to find out Yotsumoe's win condition first.
The most logical reasons are for the fun, to find the true culprit, or training. Got any more? Let's try to find the meaning of the game before this game starts. That'll give us something to do.
This has been my problem. We're fumbling around, completely blind.
Based on how he keeps insulting us and being generally unhelpful, Yotsumoe's win condition is probably to make us give up.
Blinded by science, just like Maddie.
I know you did, but there's no hint for it. We don't have anything to try and deduce it. It's like most puzzles, where we don't know the rules, and are just trying to find a solution that makes sense.
Those are interesting.
Mukkun should get us some hints.
Maybe there's a reason he can't help us. Maybe insulting us is motivation for us to become stronger and better. He just wants to help his nakama improve. He can't really be the bad guy right?
That's the point with most of the damedame puzzles so far. We're not given an obvious direction. For example, we weren't told this last puzzle was a maze, we had to figure that out on our own. Similarly, with the corpsegame, we are given only a single goal. To locate the body.
Presumably, however, in order to find the body we must also:
Find the culprit
Find the timescale
Find the accomplice (and if there is one at all)
and also find the motive and all the other mystery novel-esque things.
Judging by the general actions of Battler and Sieben, his condition is probably to frame DameDame in a good light.
Making us give up doesn't make him a bad guy. Just kind of a jerk.
So Maddie is Lambdadelta and Yokkyun is Beatrice, right?
It implies that he has a reason for hiding the culprit though which makes him out as a bad guy.
Yotsumoe is Bernkastel.
He doesn't seem like that at all.
Sam is going to be Bern or maybe Pidgenyan. This should be interesting.
Does that BKITNY AuAu because of Hanyuu or Bern because of yuri with Maddie?
Assmuning the culprit is DameDameViewer it could be that Yokkyun doesn't want us to know that someone here would do such a horrible thing as murdering someone.
Who here would eat Maddie's poop?
*Does that make, whoops.
I dont even know why I cant post this
here is a theory I came up with while reading umineko:
Battleringdamedame+??? duel= Natsuhi and beatrice duel.
Eins(phi?)=, 8th twilight
Zwei(archie)=, 7th twilight
Drei(ribdib)=, 6th twilight
Vier(einonimassu)=, 5th twilight
Funf(jumpy?)=, 4th twilight
Sechs(kanny?crab?june?)=, 3rd twilight
Sieben(Battler Mukkun)=, 2nd twilight
???????(??????)=, 1st twilight
Battlering DameDame = Piece Battler
Mukkun = Battler
99999 = Ange
Yokkyun = Beatrice
YOKKYUN = Bernkastel
Maddie = Lambda
Battler the Third = Erika
DMDMV as in us or as in the guy who came on IRC that one day to give us closure to what could have been the end?
Fix the names of Phi and ribdib.
As in us
Oh shit, Nick has to go into the woods.
Nick confirmed for Rosa and the murderer of Yotsumoe.
also I forgot to mention I wrote this bgefore participants changed places
I'll just sip some tea over here just as inconspicuously as the people that are getting murdered.
I also forgot to mention that the twilights and the duel are backwards because the duel happened first in this nonary game.
>the guy who came on IRC that one day to give us closure to what could have been the end?
You mean Yui?
No witch hunt
Why couldn't you just send that to him directly?
its not a witch hunt their IP is the same in the logs.
so nobody wants to eat maddie's poop then?
>99999 = Ange
I would eat it out of her ass.
That's not true. Seph said someone loves me.
FUCK OFF WITH YOUR AUTISM STROKING TRIPFAGGOTRY THREAD
>HURRDURR MUH SEKRET MESSAGES FROM SATURN HERPDURP
I dont see the issue
reported, everyone helse do the same without replying to him, me, or his reply to me that will probably happen.
Aside from the fact you're supporting a site run by a complete nutcase who has no respect for translators or content creators who faked having a terminal illness to get out of a translation project, you can go to >>>/g/ and they'll tell you how retarded it is to download anything that's preinstalled.
Why would he do that? Was it at least a beautiful lie?
I agree with the rest
you can tell me now how its bad.
>you can tell me now how its bad.
You do understand why you install files right? If you download them pre-installed it can lead to a whole host of compatibility issues, ones that simply cannot be resolved without redownloading from another source that doesn't come pre-installed.
The almost never have the most recent patch and you're going to get permission issue upon permission issue when downloading shit from fuwa eventually. Since arch already has the game downloaded it'd be faster for him to just download the patch.
oh well if thats the only problem, you can be rest assured it hasnt happened to me yet, and I usually install things myself.
even if it does happen I'll just install it next time.
This is weird. Where is the pazuru?
Madeline Silver @ArgentMaddie 45s
"Please to meet you, hope you guess my name" - rolling stones
I don't whore it out with my tripcode.
Mukkun can be here without his trip, you know?
Archie, post your timeline. Let's work on that.
Can someone post the boards? I wan to read them again to confirm something, but I don't have the links here, and the game page is hidden.
He doesn't have it
Here's all of them accumulated into one pastebin with notes.
I apologize if Archie has a problem with me doing this, but I have the timeline that he sent me.
This is what he sent me.
"We don't have the specific day but we've figured out some of the key times. December 8th, in Japan was the release day, so it's not the day talked about in the game boards. It was around 6:05 AM when the prerelease pic came out, 7:00-7:10 when Battler posted 3 times in the thread, 7:19 when the episode was uploaded, but 20 minutes later when it was released. 12:20 was when the brain was posted, and sometime before 1:34 was when Battler's pastebin was changed. We know that Yotsumoe obtained the brain within 24 hours of Battler breaking in. The fact Battler posted in the morning on a release day presents a few options. 1) That Battler who posted, even with the trip, was a fake. 2) That Battler was forced to write what he did and made th epastebin. 3) That Battler stayed in the lab overnight/for a period of time (not sure on exact day of course he entered lab), and posted that from the lab. If he did so, he would most likely leave a dying/SOS message, but nothing of the sort was found. If we can put it into a theory to find out which of the three possibilities is the truth, we can narrow it down to find out the timeframe."
Ok, thank you.
Just popping in to remind everyone that Maddie is blind. Also that June is best girl/princess.
The email from yotsumoe to battler is from 2012
The murder happened over a year ago
Yotsumoe could have kept the brain for awhile before he uploaded a picture of it.
Most of the emails yotsumoe send had weird date.
I don't have the picture on this computer, but here's what we know so far.
In Japanese time, the events surrounding episode 10 of Log Horizon's release was on December 8th, 2013.
7:00 - 7:10 AM) Battler posts 3 times
7:20) Episode is uploaded to Nyaa
7:40) Episode is released to the public
12:20) Brain is posted to Tumblr, shortly after that mysterious object is added to tumblr as well, and the body pic.
Sometime before 1:34 was when Battler's pastebin was edited.
December 8th could not have been the day talked about in the gameboards, however.
So there's a few options.
A) Battler stayed overnight/possibly multiple days and posted. Would most likely leave a dying message/SOS
B) It was a fake Battler who posted those 3 times/wrote and published the pastebin
C) Battler was captured and forced to write those against his will.
It was bought within 24 hours of the murder.
My brother. YotsumoexJune is the OTP of damedame. Maddiefags can fuck off.
Not of the murder, it is within 24 hours of battler invading the lab.
It couldn't have been. All of Battlering damedame's posts had been in the year of 2013, and the body is the body of Battlering damedame.
Also, test with pidgenyan was on day in gameboards. Pidgenyan was only 'born' a few months ago.
Maddie x BKITNY is the OTP, June isn't even a DameDame member.
>wrote and published the pastebin
Published it but didn't write it. What was in the pastebin was taken from what Battler had written on December 1st.
Shut up, no member of the damedame (bar BKITNY) is blind.
>Buy it a day before
>Don't upload it until after
But Maddie is blinded by science.
Ok archiver, wanna get that said in red?
I did, she's probably not blind.
He can't right now, it's nobody's turn.
what is the point of damedame, may I ask?
>But Maddie is blinded by science.
She was talking about sex with BKITNY.
Mukkun just choose someone already please?
It's just generally some retarded fun times.
He needs his time to find someone worthy.
What's the point of crunchy roll? Fucking faggot I hope you all die.
HSL please pls go.
It's called fun, you won't understand.
The subs are actually pretty funny, and they do 3 series (but KlK is on hold), also they produce small files for their subs and they are active with the fanbase. There's also a bit of an ARG that goes along with it.
I would say the same purpose as DUWANG, but DUWANG didn't keep the plot intact very well. There's also an ARG.
Fun and people enjoying themselves as well as the subs.
HS has been passive towards damedame, you shouldn't get so hostile. It's Daiz that's been a dick to them.
Future technology created for the sole purpose of defeating Daiz. But don't let Daiz know we're on to his schemes, he may launch a counter-attack.
Get to enjoy a bunch of blind people having fun.
pls no joke theories
I don't even care about damedame
I just think CR is shit and HSL is a faggot
In case you didn't know he works for CR
>Falling for the facade.
Daiz isn't the villain.
nice virus f aggot I'm not clicking links again
Daiz has never been mentioned once by the real DameDame.
Alluded to several times
Shitting on HSL is tradition. No homo
you fucking heard me bitch
Never. Once, if you want to spin vague statements in that direction.
Virus don't click
Sure he has. He isn't the culprit. Said in both gold and red.
fucking tripfag please fuck off and die
No one reply to this bait.
>archive for another website
listen if you're trying to keep the e-peen wanting shitposters from us we already know they're skewers so you dont have to try and keep us from going to doushio.
Your /v/ is showing.
Ok, guys. Want to hear a crazy theory? Remember when we played tic tac toe with Mukkun and we thought it was standard tic tac toe, but it was actually quantum tic tac toe? What if this board is the same? Board 1 and 2 are completely different. Battler acts different, and different things happen, so we thought we were seeing something like in Umineko, where things differ, but the culprit and everything is the same. But if it was a quantum board, both boards would be happening at the same time.
What's even worse, it matches perfectly. (Battler 1 is from board 1, Battler two from board 2):
Battler 2 arrives at the lab. He enters, and searches around. At that time, Pidgenyan is not in the house. While he's looking around, Battler 1 arrives. Battler 2 thinks it's someone from the damedame, and decides to hide. Battler 1 looks around, and gets the paper X. After looking around for a while, Battler 2 decides to come out and face whoever is out there. Battler 1 gets scared and hides at Pidgenyan's house. At that time, Pidgenyan is already there, but he's tired, so he's sleeping (also, the "egg" is nowhere to be seen). Battler 2 goes around a bit more, and gets some papers. While trying to get out, he gets lost (he's loosing his mind at this point). Battler 1 gets this chance to try and scape. He hears something behind him (Battler 2 hitting the walls), but he's confident he can scape. But he can't. At some point, Battler 2 and Battler 1 meet each other, and, thinking that the other is a product of the evil science of the damedame, one kills the other (remember that Battler 2 had a knife). It's not clear if both die, or only one does.
I've never been to the place, tell me what it's like crossboard scum.
Your forgot your epic bait image
It's the same exact guy who always comes into these threads and starts shit. Please ignore him this time.
>Remember when we played tic tac toe with Mukkun
No, I don't.
wow I've never even been in these threads before.
Why are you so paranoid? Next you are going to say I'm IRC or something.
But they both share the name Battler and Battler didn't solve the puzzle to leave. Perhaps it could be reference to one Battler but not another? Also personal motive.
He means with Yotsumoe.
He meant Yotsumoe, not mukkun.
Well, it was a IRC thing during the week (that week before the apocalypse where we almost killed damedame by fighting each other). It was fun.
>battler is sane
Well, of course I meant Yotrumoe. What was I thinking.
>But they both share the name Battler and Battler didn't solve the puzzle to leave.
He didn't need to solve it. They could meet inside the lab and kill each other.
He was sane before getting the papers, man.
he was sane after trying to leave too(after getting the papers)
That tests the unscientific thing. We're going based on the current day and age's science, nothing using future tech, really. Unless you count pidgenyan.
>Battler try read paper X on way and what read scare him. Battler begin lose sane now.
Password changed. Go figure it out guys.
But if the lab acts as a Schroedinger box (as far as we know, it's completely closed), it should work as today's science.
>current day and ages science
>anything that isnt this day and ages science isnt science
but it is science, just not known to this day and age.
Password change on the tumblr.
you guys are fucking cancer
go read the pastebin you are obviously retarded.
everyone report and ignore, dont respond.
Stop replying to it, it's seriously the. same. fucking. guy.
report me for what?
tumblr fags aren't welcome here
please take your normalfag street slang back to facebook
>replies to the guy telling not to reply to not reply
stop being a redundant fuck
Pazaru time no time for replies.
So, I wasn't here when we broke the password the other two times... how did we do it?
theres a difference between tumblr fags and people who use tumblr for an actual use
Please stop shitposting with one of my waifus.
If you guys weren't bitching at each other and falling for pre-K-tier trolls you would have literally heard the password being said over and over again for the past half hour on his tumblr.
We just added the numbers on after the first time which was the order of the participants of the new study being chosen which was 45362798.
>using tumblr at all
>one of my waifus
SHiN pls go
Then what is it?
>Then tell us
No, you deserve this.
Wow, you're cancer.
Inclusion is funclusion, you piece of shit. Maybe he just got here.
You are all fucking cancer
I don't care, this was the perfect opportunity to leave behind people who just fed the troll every thread.
DameDame threads have gone way downhill, jesus.
Funclusion and more minds working on puzzles.
Guys, STOP. We have a rar with a password, so get to work.
>More minds working on puzzles
Yeah, no. It'll be the same 3 people like always.
Oh god. Rar passwords
Then start working on it instead of complaining.
you guys aren't even good at fucking puzzles
Sure ok sorry IRC Police Force.
I actually work on the puzzles unlike you faggots.
The password to the rar is 72930465
From what do you get the impression I wouldn't work on it?
It looks like the needle length problem to me what was that named again? ugh. You have a needle and the question is to find the probability of it landing in a certain way or something like that?
No, it isn't...
The answer is pi.
Does that make you feel smart?
I wouldn't even call these puzzles, it's not worth my time to participate in such plebery.
No it is not. How did you get that anyways?
So what do you think will happen when BKITNY and Maddie go to bed this time?
Why is there so much shitposting in damedame threads?
Nothing because BKITNY isn't real.
>why is there shitposting in cancer threads
because people respond to bait and shitposters
Literally the worst kind of poster.
Because you people literally can't ignore the same troll that pops up every week.
It's just that idiot, and the fact that the puzzle come out too late. Just report and hide.
he meant in a physical sense
>expecting good posts in and overrated shit with a vocal circlejerking fanbase general thread
>tumblrfag cancer in charge of knowing what the worst kind of poster is
fuck off retard
>Posting worst girl of last year.
Now you deserve a ban.
Ok, so let's look at the pic. It has this thing at the lower left that looks like 王 (king/ou). There's also a red spot to the right. Any ideas of what it could mean?
as expected of tumblrfag cancer
What's the problem, is she oppressing you too much? Not checking her privilege enough?
So these dots are probably important.
It looks like the red spot is in position 268, 113 to about 272,117.
pretty sure that's just some dumb macaroni art
I know Maddie's secrets~
That is the map of a forest and the big dot indicates the location of the body. the smaller dots are the damedame standing around it.
The top part of the image sort of looks like a road with those lines in the middle
It's a map. The top lines are a road, everything else is a forest. The big dot is the lab, the smaller dots are the members of DameDame.
I also thought about that... Also, the upper part is clearly a road and the bottom left is the lab... but it doesn't really help us to fund the password.
Only three small dots.
Maddie, Yokkyun, Sam. Bkitny has no physical body and Pidgenyan might be at the lab.
Maddie, Sam and Battler.
The puzzle contains a .rar by the way
And that's why we're looking for a password.
THe road is probably the sweetfish river.
Why do you say that?
I feel sympathy for her
I believe this is a fourth dot. Going by this theory: a fourth person.
Indeed, it has a different color than the line. Maybe that was Battler hiding in the bushes?
Sorry about that. Hopefully this will be clearer.
...You're kidding, right?
That isn't a dot, that's just the end of the line. It's on every line, both ends.
No it isn't. Only on that line the color changes at the end.
No. That is the only line where there is any discoloration. Also, given its proximity to the other discolorations, I believe it to be relevant.
No it isn't.
The big clearing is the mountain. Maddie is the far away dot returning from the mountain.
That's unlikely, since she found Sam on her way back.
>dropped down to page 6 in as little as 10 minutes
Just a heads up we'll need a new thread soon.
Where's this map? Sorry I've been far from /dmdm/ a while and I'm still catching up.
Yeah, Sam isn't in the lab, is he? No. He's outside it.
Password is kagomekagome
Oh, I just needed to refresh, thanks.
New thread anyone?
Tell us the answer you blind fucking cunt before I wring your neck and fuck your cunt bloody.
