Having a bit of trouble with the full version routing back to the main menu when I get to the bridge for day 2 if saved over a demo save or any slot after a demo save. So if I saved in the demo on slot 2 then slot 3 on would route me to the main menu. At least I think that's what is going on because I was able to make it through so long as I didn't load past slot 2.
When I do make it through, Lu's branch seems to be inaccessible. I've gone through pretty much every option following your guide as well, is his branch intended to end with him dead? It would make sense but I thought I'd ask just in case.
If your save slots are causing you trouble, I'd recommend deleting all of them rather than saving over them. Hover over the slot with your cursor and hit the delete key on your keyboard. That's the safest way to avoid possible issues.
The guide is a little bit tricky to avoid spoilers, haha. It says you can 'consider helping the guide'. Not that you 'must help the guide', like it says in Margret's section. So, yes, when it comes to Lu, there's something else that can be done~
If you need more of a hint, let me know! Good luck having everything work out :]
I'll try deleting them, I considered it but then thought not to just in case for more information and all the slots seem to be affected too beyond the first save slot. I'll just delete them all and start over, shouldn't be an issue.
Yeah, I tried helping, I tried watching and I tried letting the choice time-out and all resulted in Kikka dying or him either dying or never being seen again. x'D I first tried branching off from Bemelle's story but when none of those options worked, I went back and made sure to get 0 affection with everyone else, then I tried it with Margret making it to day 2 and I haven't been able to get to the second day with Margret alive without being routed back to the main menu. I'm pretty sure I've tried every combination while still gaining the sufficient affection with Lu and nothing seems to be working.
I hope that works out for you!
And here's the specifics, instead of just some hints;
-Lu needs to have three affection points by the start of Night 2. That means saying he has worth after sticking with him during Night 1 then spending time with just him during Day and choosing both options that show concern/kindness towards Lu
-Margret needs to be alive on Night 2
-When deciding to throw the lantern or just watch, you have to remain undecided until the time runs out
-Finally, when the guide has left Margret and Kikka to wait, you have to go check on him
Following that I am still getting the ending where Kikka falls in and Lu dies... Trying to avoid spoilers but like I'm trying to make sure this is just operator error and not something breaking. Though if it were to break I would be the one to break it. T^T
I'm sorry ;;. I'll have to give at least a little spoiler. That is how it's meant to go. You've gotta keep trucking past that horrible event and keep trying to get everyone to the other side. It isn't over until it's truly over.
And be sure to bring Margret along, instead of Bemelle.
