It’s been a long time coming, fellas. Hard to believe 2 years have already passed.
There’s a few notable changes I want to discuss.
1.) The blog has its own domain and branding. Eroyume.com You will be redirected to this URL from now on.
2.) A site storage upgrade has been added. In addition, I’ll be able to stream audio directly instead of going through OpenDrive.
3.) All of my video encoding is now done using a custom-built PC with an i7-2600K overclocked to 4.5 GHz. Efficiency is key here if I’m going to make up for lost time, and a PC with this much power will help me get there.
4.) A major advancement has been made in x264 encoding while I was gone. We now have 10-bit depth output or what is commonly referred to as Hi10P. In a nutshell, it allows for higher quality at smaller file sizes but at the loss of compatibility. Anime fansubbers quickly adopted this profile some time around May or June of last year. I will be doing the same for all future eroge OP. I would suggest updating VLC, MPlayer, or CCCP if you haven’t done so in a while, or you risk problems with playback.
5.) Megaupload has just been shut down by the US Department of Justice on several charges. You’ll see this if you click one of the broken links. I will be looking for a new back-up host, but until then, MediaFire will be the go-to place.
For those who have stuck with me through thick and thin for 3+ years, thank you. It means a lot. For anyone new to Eroyume, welcome and enjoy your stay. 🙂
