D.S. -Dal Segno-

D.S. -Dal Segno-

Kazana Island… A cozy, cool paradise where summer never ends.

The protagonist finds himself stepping foot into this island paradise as a transfer student, greeted by a mysteriously glittering sky, as well as the energetic island caretaker Ame, a girl-type AI.

After a bit of a rocky start, he settles at the dorms where a handful of new female friendships await.

She’s a tomboyish beauty, but a bit of a loner: Himari Asamiya.

The manifestation of brains and beauty, and also student leader: Hazuki Murasaki.

The self-proclaimed “Daughter of Darkness”, with a normal side too: Io Kouzuki.

Always trying to act the grown-up, but still a tease (your cousin): Noeri Fujishiro.

And the girl who embraces her role of making everyone happy: Ame.

How will you sculpt your everlasting happiness here in paradise?

A new love is about to begin…

    1. Yeah, pretty good story, and especially characters. I really like the fairly clever banter between them. But could have used some more H-scenes. Out of the 3 routes I’ve played so far, only Noeri had decent amount of scenes.

  1. i can’t open this game for so long i already gave up on playing this game already because i can’t open so if any one try to download this game just forget it.

    1. For those having problems with the game not starting when you click on DSAO.exe, try this: 1) open task manager 2) go to the details header and open that 3) find DSAO.exe and right click it. 4) click on analyze wait chain 5) check the box on whatever processes are interfering with DSAO.exe and hit end process. Game should start

  2. Any plan to post the v1.01 patch that was released on the July 19? Its a pain having to restart my computer each time I want to play because I don’t know which program is conflicting.

  3. Personally, I recommend the route in order of interest
    Noeri > Hazuki > Himari > Io > Ame
    Ame’s Route is only unlocked after all heroines route is played

    The game doesn’t directly inherit the Da Capo series, but subtle references are made inside the game.You could say it in the same world. I found all other routes alright, it was worth playing just for the Ame’s (Final) route itself.

    (Spoilers Ahead)(Spoilers Ahead)*Twice because it is important

    Sadly and maybe thankfully the core elements that make up the Da Capo series are not there, thus its is not an extension of the series. No more Ever Blooming Sakura Tree that grants wishes. No more Suginami, you get his apprentice but it doesn’t feel the same. No more incest, direct or indirect. No ability to peek into others dreams too. No Wagashi producing abilities. No Yoshino Sakura. The only things passed down from the Da Capo series is having an artificial intelligence character (Robot/Puppet + Now additionally an AI).

  4. Hey guys need help i’m getting annoyed about characters doesn’t have voice when talking about i did not change my name so they call me atsuya but to my dissapointment my the name is not voiced noeri is ok because she calls me nii anyone knows how?

  5. Perhaps I’m just blind or something, but does this game not offer stopping the voices upon click? It’s really annoying trying to read and the character is still talking haha

    1. There is an option for that, actually, and you’ve probably already seen it – it’s the Stop Voice-Over setting in the sound menu.

      One catch though – the button placement is reversed. Press “off” to enable the voice stop.

  6. Nevermind, it seems the website that had the patch for concerto note is gone,but there is also “wonderful Everyday discontinued existence”, which sounds awesome because it has 5 protaganists who all have voice acting!

  7. I liked Da Capo and I found this kind of interesting until the pageant. I picked Himari at first and after the pageant it was boring as hell until she broke up with me for some bullshit reason I don’t know and don’t care about. I quit her route at once and tried the route of the daughter of darkness but after the pageant it was boring as hell again until she broke up with me for some bullshit reason I don’t know and don’t care about. I’m not invested enough to play along with their bullshit to find out and I have no interest at all in the other two girls, so I guess I will just quit it and go reading Dies irae or something else insted.

    Also while I understand that not every MC can be a badass like Kazami Yuuji, the protagonist in this one is just one awful bore and pushover.

  8. Ican’t+seem+to+open+the+application.Everytime+I+try+to+open+the+DSAO+that+says+application,it+doesn’t+do+anything?Anyone+having+this+problem+too?

  9. WTH, i anticipating Mei route but what kind of ending is that?!! it’s like happy-fail bad ending.

  10. If someone still has a problem runnin the game just run directx check from launcher and that fixed it for me.

  11. Thanks admin, you just made someone happy and even took some of his problems away.
    BTW Himari best girl <3 (for me… well, basically because of
    personal preferences)

    Thnx again admin

    1. Agreed! Himari is best. But I’m not sure I like the true ending… I wish it could have been more cheerful.

      1. Yeah, i was… i guess anticipating for a far more cheerful and satisfying set of events and also to top it off with a memorable and romantic closure of her story. But all in all it’s still great, i stored up a months worth of happiness from this. I might try the other routes after some weeks.
        Admin u rock!

  12. Well, the game looks okay so far, but “naming your protagonist” is the most dumb thing this game has, at least with the translation, since it’s poorly executed. Not sure if VN’s are capable of such programming, but having entered a last name, eg. Studdlecock, you might expect it to at least write the same last name in the dialogue box, but we instead have the vanilla last name of the protagonist. The voices are not giving the last name, which is good; but the dialogue box is completely sucking, making the choice of naming the protagonist nonsensical and stupid.

    In short: Don’t edit the name of your protagonist.

  13. If your having issues launching the game and the mentioned solutions don’t work like I ran into. I had luck using sandboxie to launch the game.

  14. For those of you who can’t launch the game, try disabling Nvidia share/shadowplay
    worked for me

    1. yeah guys, try disabling the nvidia shadow play on task opr start up. for me it was called Nvidia Capture server proxy. it should work

  15. I mean, Damn dude! I’ve downed like 300 games from here, and I’m like 25% thru Ryoko Sensai, and you just drop another “MUST HAVE” on me. You’re heartless! But I love you! Thanks for all of your hard work. And the plus sign in the posts is pretty annoying. Five seconds to write a post, 3 minutes to delete the plus signs, but it’s better than $642,000 to play a video game. Thanks Admin!

  16. I don’t really care about this.. i am waiting for Imouto Paradise 2 and Kyonyuu Fantasy Gaiden MWAHAHAHAAAAHAA!!!!!

      1. well that too, but it is kind of worrying, princess evangile has a story and it is pretty good for me, so if the fandisc is badm it could destroyed my whole image of the game. I just hope the Fandisc is the best junk ever.

        1. I doubt it will be good as the original, remember its only a fandisk, its a continuation of the original plus new routes. I just want to play the routes.

  17. The windowed mode is way too huge, can someone tell me how to change the size of it ?My display is 1024 x 728.

    1. You will have to play it in the full screen mode. I don’t think you can change window size. Drag up the game as much as you can, and go to config to change to full screen. Try changing your display settings to a larger resolution.
      If the config button is too low for you to click even then, try ctrl+alt+(left or right arrow). The screen will be turned sideways, so you will be able to reach the config button. By ctrl+alt+(top arrow), you will be able to return to your original orientation. Once the game is in full screen, I think you should be able to play it with no problems.

    2. I just realized, you can get to the config by just using arrow keys and enter. Just get to the config and use full screen.

      1. <.< Alright, I just wanted to change the resolution so I could be in windowed mode and switch between it and the guide I'll be using with ease. I didn't have any troubles switching to fullscreen by the way. The response, while unfortunately not the one I wanted, is appreciated regardless. ^.^

        1. You could always use Alt-Tab to switch between the guide and the game. That’s what I did anyway.

  18. Spoiler: the ero patch is free. So if you buy the steam version, you patch it with 18+. The patch is on mangagamer site (you need to log in). There is also the link on the officjal FAQ on the Dal Segno steam forums.

  19. Is there any point in changing the default name? I set it to something else, but the characters still refer to you as the default name lol

    1. Yeah, basically that thing was useless from the start lol XD Even if you change the name, they will still call the mc atsuya-kun.
      But, i don’t dislike it.

          1. Reporting back that this does not work for me. I too use win10.
            I’m guessing this is a crack problem as someone else suggested as the jap crack does work but messes up the text.

          2. It did work for me after some fiddling around. I’m also on Windows 10. I installed the font and the direct X inside the game folders and it still didn’t work. I tried deleting it and my computer froze so I restarted it and deleted the files for real, since none of the processes using the files were open. Afterwards I took the game out of the zip files again and tried the Dal Segno game launch application. Smartscreen stopped me as usual, but for some reason, it worked his time.

          3. same’s happening to me i tried running as ADM the game just runs on the bg and I already waited 30min and didn’t work … guess will have to wait for the crack or bug to be fixed I’m planning on buying this VN but before that i just wanted to know if its worth

          4. Apparently , the crack is not a problem but the game, i found a guy with teh same problem on steam who bought the game. He said in wasnt working on his pc but when he downloaded teh game to his laptop it works.

          5. This game doesn’t use any crack – files posted here are exactly the same as the one provided to buyers. Mangagamer stopped using DRM in their games some time ago, since every release was being cracked within minutes anyway.

          6. To ADM so will have to waitch for a patch to fix it? i tried steam solution but it doesnt work and i’m on a laptop

          7. I fixed it here. My photoshop was open. After I closed it, the game started by itself just fine. See if there isn’t any other program open.

          8. thanks
            i had to restart the pc, every other programms are closed now it works
            what a pain XD

          9. Closing Logitech Gaming Software fixed my problem too. Seems like looking for some running incompatibilities is the way to go.

          10. I don’t know if it was part of the problem or not, but when i restarted my laptop and closed the guildwork app, it seemed to work fine. *shrug*

    1. sevenforums.com/bsod-help-support/122804-process-running-programs-dont-open.html

      try this solution

    2. i had the same problem but i found my issue,as you the proess was showing in the taskmanager but the game was not working,since after a restart the game was working i was sure one process/program was blocking the game.
      to see what is blocking the game:
      open task manager
      resource monitor
      search DSAO(dal segno process)
      analyze wait chain and check what’s the problem


  20. love ya work admin, i was wondering if u know a H-game about an desert island with gameplay its kinda old i cant remember the title but it was something like “savage island 4” something like that. Thx 4 u work =D

  21. still doesnt open
    checked my task manager
    it opens in background processes
    but i figured out my save data issue just had to make another file called AdvData inside advdata
    pls help

    1. I have the same problem as you , its running on background but its not showing up, only in task manager, i tried using the non english crack and it works but the text is all messed up. There is a problem with teh crack.

  22. Pass, honestly, Circus ceased to impress me, this is another dacapo like history, I even searched for a character like Suminami and there it was.

  23. I’m thinking I’ll try getting this later. Right now the parts are dling at slower speeds than usual to the point where it will take me an hour per part instead of the usual maybe 12-15 mins per part. Thanks, though.

      1. When I saw the abbreviation D.S. followed by -Dal Sengo-, all I could think was “This has to be from the people who made Da Capo.” Thanks for confirming that for me.

    1. it is, Ame is an Ai, the product of Amakase Research Institute from Da Capo Series. So you could say Da Capo, Suika, and Dal Segno take place in the same world, but idk about timeline.

    1. Not really. Sure, you can change the name at the beginning, but every character in the game will always call you by the default name “Takamura Atsuya”.

  24. And finally, that moment u finish at downloading ALL the Kyuketsi no Libra files, that shet appear, then, i wonder, which one should i play?

      1. definitely should play this one. been looking forward to this one since last year. Circus doesnt disappoint

    1. I’m gonna download this one and try . I Have been playing Libra for some time and it’s so so overall . I expected it to be more fun and have a better story but meh.
