How do you count visual novel pages? I have to count each screen, are you kidding me? Can I parse the text in ITH them divide the result by 400?

Totally not kidding you. If you are reading Japanese you can definitely use ITH, divide the count by 400, and multiply it by 20.
If you aren’t reading Japanese however, you have to count the screens or use a clicker app to help with that.

フェイト/ステイナイト→ITH→cb’s Japanese Text Analysis Tool to generate word frequency.txt→paste it in Openoffice and click in ∑ to sum the entire numbers colum→14.240 words→divided by 400→35.6。
Note that it is already the equivalent of 35.6 pages in a book assuming that a book has 400 words per page.
Then why should I multiplicate by 20? Isn’t it easier to just send it as @TadokuBot 35.6 #book ? I know it isn’t a book, It’s a visual novel(fullgame as listed in the manual) but why cannot I just use the same method recommended in the manual for net pages?
Multiplying by 20 after dividing 14240/400=35.6 gives me 712 which when sent to @TadokuBot multiplied by 0.1667(1/6 of a page) makes it up to 118.6. That’s crazy mathematics. I didn’t read 118.6 pages, I read 35.6 pages as the simplier math shows.
Btw, what do you use to count the total of words? I use cb’s Japanese Text Analysis Tool which is super precise for sure.
The information about fullgame in the manual should be corrected.
I also OCRed a light novel (ハイスクールｄｘｄ第一) and it was around 58 thousand words big for 286 pages,so There are around 200 words a page in a light novel in average. The 400 words is just for regular novels, right? I tested doing this math you advised me with this light novel and the result was also super wrong again obviously.

Raw character count -> Divide by 400 for page count -> multiply by the rate of whatever the medium it is. For full game this is 6 for game this is 20. You should take this extra step and properly submit it as what you read for record keeping purposes.

Solved. Then it was just mispelling: you sad 20 before which didn’t make sense. But it’s 6 for fullgame. Now the math do the correct job.
14.240 words→divided by 400→35.6→times6(fullgame)→213.6→and @tadoku does it times 0.1667= 35.6.

No misspelling, you said “visual novel” and didn’t specify game or fullgame so I gave you the figure for game. Please be more specific when asking for help.

I’m having trouble updating via the bot. It seems everyone’s tweets are going through except mine. And my score for the January challenge isn’t even listed. I’m doing everything correctly. What seems to be the problem?

Hey, Lordsilent, the bot finally went through, but as a result of the technical issues, I re-tweeted an additional 600 manga pages. I can’t fix it as the challenge had already ended, so I was hoping you might be able to fix it. Thanks!
