So far I've found the .chr files being genuine: two are images, one is an ogg vorbis sound file, one is base64 encoded story about murder for curiosity's sake.

And there are files appearing in the main directory and disappearing after some playthroughs.
Also, I recall a poem or two in base64 (from == at the end), but I didn't copy them by hand into a notepad to decode them. (EDIT: I later gutted the game files open and decompiled the code and got the poem from there, so yeah, it's something, I don't get what it refers to though).
Anyone found anything else?

(Edited 5 times)

I thought that poem looked familiar, that's why (I recognized the stuff at the end like you did but couldn't remember what it meant lol).  I noticed some of those files, I wish I'd realized it sooner because I wonder if there are more than what I saw.  I'm sure the black and white bit in the middle of Monika.chr can be turned into something as well, but I'm not quite sure how to go about it.

I also had a really creepy thing happen where I restarted the game, deleted Monika, then restarted again and Sayori freaked out (restart again for maximum effect).  I'm was legit very very upset about this, I don't know why I'm playing this still so late at night, haha.  

*edit*

Someone on the Steam forums decoded Sayori's OGG file.  I thought there must be a way to make this into something other than an OGG, but heck if I know how they did it.

Hmm, deleting monika.chr is interesting. How do you decode an OGG exactly and what came out of it? It was a valid ogg vorbis, at least file ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File_(command) ) detected it so and it was some crackling in VLC.

I *think* they used a spectrum analyzer (which I feel like I should have thought of first but didn't lol)

here is the in game poem that was in base64

Open Your Third Eye

I can feel the tenderness of her skin through the knife, 
as if it were an extension of my sense of touch. 
My body nearly convulses. 
There's something incredibly faint, 
deep down, 
that screams to resist this uncontrollable pleasure. 
But I can already tell that I'm being pushed over the edge. 
I can't...
I can't stop myself.

This is Natsuki's character file if you cut it in half and switch the two halves around then rotate 180 then apply negative color.

holy shit.. this sends chills down my spine I’m freaking out. You know how the person in yuri’s poem Linda Watson IF YOU LOOK UP LINDA WATSON PICTURES OF A BLONDE GIRL THAT LOOK JUST LIKE THAY PICTURE ( yet your picture is animated) BUT THAT IS TOATALLY WHAT SHE WOULD LOOK LIKE ANIMATED AND STRECHED OUT....is this a real story..if you scroll farther you can see pictures of her hands in frame WITH NO RINGS just like yuri said not married.. and there’s one more thing.. . If you look up Linda Watson and scroll for not to long there’s a picture of the girl in a missing photo SHE WENT MISSING possibly because she was killed?! What if that’s his way of getting it off his chest what if he had the intention yuri did what if he wanted to see what it was like to kill someone im

Reminds me of skins in UT99 a bit, they included entire body in one image so the face looked stretched like that and blended into hair, back of the head, etc. like here, as if it was taken off the model like an actual skin.

The base64 encoded story in yuri.chr is a (supposedly) true story, at least according to this post http://lindawatsonstory.tumblr.com/post/122112932186/linda-watson

It's probably still a creepy pasta and prints, DNA and so many unique details = suicide pretty much for the perpetrator but I know of cases where someone killed someone just out of curiosity so it's at least plausible/realistic.

Ah, that Base 64 poem is linked to this website that some people on Steam found (Sayori.chr led them there), I'm sure of it.  The reference to Third Eye makes me think that.  What that means though, no idea...the website seems unrelated to Doki Doki unless there's something I'm missing.

So taking Natsuki's character file and just running it through a filter you can actually get this picture


Nice job on unscrambling the image, Edmond, but all I can think about looking at this is are her eyes open or shut?

I'm curious as to what you used/did to filter the image

Polar Coordinates in Photoshop.

Nice find!

if you delete sayoris .chr file the game ends and all you see is a picture of sayori hanging herself this is most likely due to it deleting her file when she dies

(+1)

@superleop3108, You'll get a similar "end" of the game if you delete all of the characters except for Monika as well. Presumably, if you delete all the characters, you'll get Sayori swinging as well since there is nobody to interact with. Strange that the DDLC didn't have an exception route for just having Monika.chr by itself as well.

its because because monika can just add them back due to her "powers"

Since we're adding to the secrets here. On my 2nd play through and trying to get cut scenes with Natsuki I stumbled across an interesting "secret" of sorts. 

This happened during the 2nd or 3rd poem creation portion, after Sayori's suicide and the game is corrupted/hacked. I picked a random word that I thought would trigger Natsuki but ended up triggering either Sayori or Monika's chibi paper cutout that was off the bottom of the screen. 

I sadly don't recall what word triggered it but was surprised to see a cutout off screen. Anyone else have luck triggering this?

I also got Monika's chibi jump from out of the screen. I'm certain it's Monika and not Sayori because of the white bow on the back of her head that I clearly saw. I think the word I clicked was "alone" (I don't recall it showing up somewhere else in these mini-games)

i too got the same thing, at this point i know there is a way to get a set of words where you can impress monika and get some secret dialogue or poem but no ending. the word alone works for her because she says it herself near the end of the game, i found another word that works for her i dont remember what it was though

(+1)

I triggered Sayori/Monika jumping up as well, for me it was the last word of the poem and the word was "scars"

(+1)

Yes, I had it too. I didn't consider it too special, just like the glitches, creepy faces that Yuri seems to sometimes make when words are being picked (anyone else see that?  a creepy smile with monster teeth instead of the normal chibi), etc.

No, I missed that and will look for it when I next play act 2.

I got that too! Only managed to make her jump one time though and it took me by surprise but I'm sure my eyes did not lie to me now. This chibi popped in the middle of the other words after I clicked a word I though would apply to Yuri (I chose to help Yuri for the festival and stuck to it through the end).

(+1)

I wonder how many easter eggs are still undiscovered 

Oh, I think there is a secret ending or something too I think, I think I've seen mentions of one when I looked into code.

I don't wanna dig it out of code though and I already threw it all out from my PC, but if someone is interested (although I might be misremembering now).

Anyone else get the somewhat secret "love" poems from Natsuki/Yuri on the 3rd exchange if you focused on them properly? On my first play through I didn't get them, so when I started my 3rd play through, I was surprised to see the slight difference and how accepting they were at that point. Just a fun thing I wanted to point out. 

Yeah, it's possible to get secrets poems just for you. I think you need to focus on that girl tho. Sayori doesn't give you one because she leaves early. I don't remember if I got one from Yuri... but I definitely got one from Natsuki.

Apparently there are 11 different secret poems: http://ddlcwiki.ga/wiki/Special_poems

Warning: the wiki http://ddlcwiki.ga/wiki/Main_Page spoils everything including spelling out all the secrets and even the % probabilities of triggering the easter eggs.

I love that wiki. It's actually made me appreciate the game more by showing me stuff I didn't know even after finishing the game.

how do i delete the character files if im playing on itch.io?

When I booted up the game, I was opening a chocolate bar, so when I realised it said "You are my sunshine, my one and only sunshine" (or something close to that) instead of "This game is not for children or those who are easily disturbed" I couldn't react fast enough because it disappeared a split second later. Has anyone else seen this before?

I got this on while playing after sayori died. what could be the memento?

Here is the note i pick up after looking at the game files

"There's a little devil inside all of us."

Beneath their manufactured perception - their artificial reality - is a writhing, twisted mess of dread. Loathing. Judgment. Elitism. Self-doubt. All thrashing to escape the feeble hold of their host, seeping through every little crevice they can find. Into their willpower, starving them of all motivation and desire. Into their stomach, forcing them to drown their guilt in comfort food. Or into a newly-opened gash in their skin, hidden only by the sleeves of a cute new shirt. Such a deplorable, tangled mass is already present in every single one of them. That's why I choose not to blame myself for their actions.

All I did was untie the knot.

I've noticed that there are some codes with "base64" written in the URLs from the chibi images from the official DDLC page. I can't seem to decode them, but i think someone here should know how to decode better than me.

I can't put the URLs here, cuz they are too big. But i can just put the official page link, so here it is:

https://ddlc.moe

Just go to the bottom of the home page and you'll find the chibi images for you to open.
