Quote from: Piotyr on December 28, 2012, 02:40:38 AMMay I suggest a different name? the name is kinda misleading in that I think of the old pc dating sim "True love"I think harvest moon friends of mineral town girl edition and more friends of mineral towns boy edition would work fine.
Quote from: Vanya on January 14, 2013, 02:41:28 PMI haven't wanted to stir anything up with my opinion, but I don't really like the hack's subtitle. Calling "True Love Edition" might seem to imply that same sex relationships are inherently better. Don't get me wrong, I'm all for this and the boy version as well. I just think something like "Free Love Edition" would be more appropriate. Just my opinion.

Quote from: granz on January 14, 2013, 03:52:21 PMWould you guys feel this way if the hack were themed around heterosexual relationships in some way? (e.g. one that makes more opposite gendered NPCs available for marriage)
Quote from: danke on January 14, 2013, 03:38:53 PMExcept that "true love" isn't defined by gender or societal standards.
Quote from: danke on January 14, 2013, 03:38:53 PMAs it's his hack, he can name it as he likes.
Quote from: danke on January 14, 2013, 03:38:53 PMAnd since you have no intention of playing the hack, what's the harm?
Quote from: granz on January 14, 2013, 05:34:33 PM... but you guys are heterosexual. (I guess?) The hack is geared toward a different demographic. If the concept of marrying someone of the same gender is not something you can identify with, then don't play it. I've avoided Harvest Moon games all this time for this very reason - the restriction on the relationship aspect limits my ability to immerse myself in the role. I'd really appreciate having this option after all.
Quote from: Garoth Moulinoski on January 14, 2013, 05:57:37 PMI'm not saying that the content is "wrong". I'm saying that the title with the content combination is misleading. Its implication is that gay relationships are the right or true way to be. Which isn't wrong, but then what does that leave for heterosexual relationships? Are they the wrong way?I feel like I've repeated myself three times already.
Quote from: Garoth Moulinoski on January 15, 2013, 06:01:35 PMAlright...Let's say that we have a game where the original version let's you play as a boy (or a girl) and the objective was to marry someone of the same gender. Let's call it Game X. It's the vanilla version.Now, someone comes along and makes a version of the same game where the objective is changed so now, you have to court a character of the opposite gender and calls that version of the game Game X: True Love Edition.How do you feel about that? It isn't telling me that Game X has had its objective changed from same-sex relationships to heterosexual relationships. It's just telling me it's the "True Love Edition". Is it a Deluxe version of the game? Does it have more characters? Can I do more activities with my virtual significant other? I don't know!Do you understand what I'm saying now? About the title? It sounds like it's a deluxe edition hack when it's an uni-functional hack (changes the gender of the player character to simulate same-gender relationships).
Quote from: DarknessSavior on January 15, 2013, 06:02:57 PMOr simply reverse it. There are BL games out there in Japanese. Let's say someone modded BL Game X to make it straight, and called it BL Game X: True Love edition. I'm fairly certain no one would like that for the same reason. It's just overlooked here for whatever reason.~DS
