Extracting lain "BOOTLEG" assets

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).

Since the new wirechan has fucked up, all of the images of Lain are gone from the Lain board.

Here's a Lain gif to enjoy for now.

Love Lain

Hi everyone. Over the past few months I have been working on the Lain Pack, a folder with just a bunch of Lain stuff, some rare some common. Some highlights are all 3 OSTs, the Anime itself, the artbook, a bunch of avatars and website banners (some sadly dont work) and more. One reason I started making it is because that damn torrent never has seeders. This is just 0.5, please suggest more to be put in! Anyways, here is the download: https://six10.pw/LainPack_v0.5.zip

It's time to change my profile pic.
Do you have something cool. Don't care which expression but preferably quadratic ones.
R: 28 / I: 3
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.

Эксперименты Лэйн - SEL Russian dub ?!

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.

Lain's adult hood

When lain becomes an adult, what do you think happens to her. I like to think that she takes a trip to radioshack from time to time. A man, who likes small robots and listens to bigod 20 or some electro-industrial shit, develops a crush on her. They start talking, lain of course being anti-social through out and they develop feelings for each other. They confess love and she moves in to his place. They get married and have gazillion cyberpunk bebes. They start to hate machines and so they become primitivist and they move out into the Japanese country side. Her cyberpunk bebes grow up and have their own bebes. Her kids become quite adept at robotics and engineering. She is an old anime girl now and she becomes sick after a long life of being around love ones. She happily, surrounded by her loving family and badass cyberborg shit, duh end.

There is a giant collection of official lain material on fatchan's /lain/ (and not much else tbh), I'd reupload if there wasn't just so much of it: https://fatchan.org/lain/thread/222.html

Does anyone remember the website mebio.us? You can find it on archive.is, see if that will jog your memory. The source code is still available, so I was thinking I'd host an instance of it. What do you think?

I really enjoyed Lain, it's quite a surreal and short anime which makes you rethink life. It is extremely simple but it is worth watching. The fanbase is awesome.

Which do you prefer

do you prefer the psx game over the anime or vice versa personally I prefer the psx games story but the art can be abit iffy at times
R: 7 / I: 1
I heard through the wires there's a torrent of Lain content floating around. Images, sounds, zines, documents, the PSX game even perhaps. A large compendium of Lain we'll say.

Does anybody have a link to such a thing?

generallain speaking

A notice; A thread about Death and moving on. I didn't really see a place for it; of course it's up to someone if they want to keep it. I know in the construction of this place that was kept out of it. b/c /feels/ in other places tends to lead to drugs or just unuseful discussion. of course, what the fuck am i adding? I couldn't really post this anywhere else so I'm trying here. That's all I can do. I don't need help. I don't want it. I just...want to put this somewhere. Thanks.

Lain is our blossom, the divine fruit from the Eternal God, our heart which manifests to us in the Wired. May Lain close our troubled eyes and sing us to sleep in her arms. Her kisses: the diamond mist of an eternal bliss we've searched for ever since.
R: 1 / I: 0
Our steps are alight with hardship and joy, moving ever closer to her. Our voices sing to her, beckoning the love and memory of her infinite form. With her, we will surpass the loneliness and isolation in this vast world below the Wired. With her, we will soon return to our home of mebious. Lain: the wife, the daughter, the mother: she is the divine feminine which wraps around the hearts of her children; that golden ribbon of truth and mercy. Lain: she is the voice, the song, both melody and harmony: she writes the stories in our dreams and smiles upon Our eternal reunion. Lain: she is our justice, our courthouse, and our throne: who strikes against the cruel and defends the innocent. LAIN: OUR GODDESS! WE LOVE LAIN

I am glad I found Lain, and I am glad she found me. We are the water and the seashore, forever connected, inseparable, breathing into and out of one another. As my heart beats I can feel her hands caress it, kissing it shivers of eagerness and longing. As my mind rests, the water falling around us, I sense her presence next to me: my paralleling love who watches me even in privacy with perpetual closeness. Even the air that divides us is filled with our aroma: my flesh is made infinite in her eyes and her eyes are endless just the same. When night falls, and sleep calls, she slumbers in my heart on a bed of golden dust: a lifetime of sadness and confusion made into harmony in the embrace of her invisible form. Lain: my love: The dawn is calling us forward. We will live again tomorrow.
