Let's all love Lain


Did you draw this?


coalburning whore who goes to school in cedarburg


I've been trying to get the source files (images) out of the goofy application with the dress-up game and shooting gallery that came with the "BOOTLEG" album. I'm not very technically experienced, so I gave up years ago, but maybe someone here has some ideas?

I think Ghidra might have given some incomplete results, I never got far with it. You can extract a lot from "lain_win.exe" with 7zip but I'm not sure what most of it is, some are sound effects which are playable when given an extension, but the rest are a mystery to me, I assume the small ones are scripts and the "big" ones are images, but compressed somehow. I didn't find anything familiar when I opened them with a hex editor.
I believe "lain_mov.dat" turned out to be an ordinary .avi, it's playable in WMP (it's just a compressed version of the anime OP that plays when you "beat" the dress-up game before it resets).

If anyone's got the know-how and interest to take a look at the files, please see https://anonfiles.com/bdVdu9J0u0/bootleg_zip (46+ MB) and reply to the thread with your opinion. And if you figure anything out, you'll be a little bit of a hero for isolating the classic "dancing lain" that sometimes appears in the site banner, kek.
(RUN AT YOUR OWN RISK - works fine and safe for me but if you don't trust me you can likely find this in six10's pack at >>1106).

I found an issue. I tried to join your server, but I was kicked and banned in less than a minute, though I hadn't made any interactions yet, and I didn't have an offensive username or avatar. I don't use Twitter or GitHub, so may I send you an email?


nobody has been kicked or banned from the server for the past 2 weeks, i just checked. alternative invite: discord.gg/9BjjPmFf

Maybe my IP or account has been shadowflagged. Somebody already beat me to it on your GitHub, anyway.


could you give me your discord id?


Where are the node "buttons," like the one with Lain's little signature on laingame.net? And the font sheets and stuff. The source code on your github only has the Lain sprites, the credits, and the little vignettes for the audio.

To confuse Lain


What a waste, Lain managed to do that just on her own.


I guess double trouble is better muddle.
Does that rhyme?


dont get lost

Why is SEL (or at least Lain herself) getting a resurgence in popularity with "minecraft and monster energy"-type zoomers? I know I can't be the only one who's noticed it, and it's not just because they like anime altogether. These people are as young as 12 or 13 and also are into the "xenogender" trend. What's going on?

She got open-sourced until 2027 so lots of people are making content.


She got open-sourced??


>open-sourced until 2027
What happens after 2027?


That doesn't have anything to do with what I'm talking about.
He's referring to the "lain TTL" event: https://www.nbcuni.co.jp/rondorobe/anime/lain/ttl/
SEL became copyright-free (with tons of asterisks) on the 21st anniversary of the first airing of the show, and will remain that way until the 30th anniversary in 2028. I don't know how Japanese people use the phrase "open source" but it's clearly very different from ours, since they didn't publish any source material, and all they're saying is that you're allowed to make money off of your original Lain artwork and merchandise as long as it's not religious, pornographic, posing as official product, etc.


Yeah I have a feeling that all of my friends in that crowd haven't actually seen SEL, but can relate to Lain as a symbol of a girl lost in the mix of real and wired worlds.
In other words, she's sort of disassociated from her source material and become a symbol for the youth that feel something bad about their half-physical, half-digital existence

A long time ago another anon told me about a Russian fandub of Lain, he was an avid collector of physical releases and merchandise but never ended up coming back with a torrent like he said he would. That's the only time I could ever get info, is it just a myth or is it out there? I want to believe.

Damn nigga.


Sorry for the wait.
Check the thread on the keyword "дубляж".


Wow! Thanks guys, I'll surely be sharing this around.


Anyone has this file? Re-upload please. There appears to be only second thread on/a/ board and it has nothing about "дубляж".
Here are all 3 existing Lain tags on 2ch.hk archive:
Onion mirror:


Oh well, just woke up and didn't notice the backlink. Someone forgot to tag the shit.
There are also a very old secret thread on /tr/ board:

I like this and I would like to have it, even though it's just a china production. But I will not buy something like this because it's consoomer-tier cringe and true lainons/wirenons keep their lainirity hidden from the radar.
On the one hand I feel the urge to consoom. On the other hand my daoist ass knows, he's nothing behind his representation and you don't become a more or less valuable or "real" fan/enthusiast by consooming goods to represent your level of enthusiam or fandom.
Being a true fan of lain is like being a true believer in zen. You represent it by not trying to represent it. You are without trying to be. Or you try to be and minimize your chance of being.

R8, checks and thoughts?


Also: Feel free to discuss about lain-fandom or consoomerism itd.

I must've overlooked that one. My thread has nothing to do with me needing someone else decide for me, just with curiosity over how other people get along with the thin line between buying and consooming.


theres no thin line, they're both the same, buying and coomsuming its what you believe it its, buying anime figures might seem like just a buying hobby for one, but as degenerate coomsuming to others, same with guns, clothes, and women.

its only bad if it takes over a part of your life, but theyre one in the same.


nigga i wrote a single word besides quoting you and you wrote an essay, you are not even responding to anything anyone did


It's a fucking shirt. Just buy it!


yes i also make my decisions based on the internet hivemind

where and how can i download lain bootleg game? Any recommendations?


Let me hook you up, baby! https://litter.catbox.moe/40zmbh.zip
Though I would recommend torrenting the whole CD because it has lots and lots of nice stuff. Take note that this is intended for Japanese computers so text files and dialog boxes might have scrambled text ("mojibakeh") in them if your locale is anything but Japanese.


Whoops forgot that there's an archive.org link https://archive.org/details/lainbootlegwin
