Blinder than blind, here's Shuffle!

100100000 - Kaede (While hoping for Nerine) 100111000 - Kaede (Admittedly, it's not much different from the above; it's as if I was aiming for "Not Kaede, Nerine or Primula", without specifically aiming for Asa.) But yeah. I shall now count all of 100XXXXXX as being the same as 001XXXXXX. 101000000 - Nerine 101000001 - Nerine (If I recall, XXX1XXXXX and XXXX00XXX both lock out Primula's ending, so from here on I'll take that assumption.) 101000010 - Nerine 101000011 - Nerine* 101000100 - Nerine 101000101 - Nerine* 101000110 - Nerine 101000111 - Nerine* 101001000 - Kaede 101001001 - Primula (From here on, the only expected Primula endings I'll be checking are those which directly follow a non-Kaede ending. Until I get used to Nerine, of course.) 101001010 - Kaede 101001011 - Primula* 101001100 - Kaede* (Really, the change in choice here only makes Kaede more likely.) 101001101 - Primula* 101001110 - Kaede* 101001111 - Primula* 101010000 - Kaede 101010001 - Primula* 101010010 - Kaede 101010011 - Primula* 101010100 - Kaede* (I think I've got this figured out, but there're just a couple more this I'll need to do to confirm.) 101010101 - Primula* 101010110 - Kaede* 101010111 - Primula* 101011000 - Kaede (Alrighty then. I'm now pretty much certain that I know how this works. Time to add it all together.)
Lisianthus - 26 (5%) Nerine - 16 (3%) Kaede - 362 (71%) Asa - 16 (3%) Primula - 92 (18%) While it may seem odd that these numbers say that Lisianthus is around 1⅓ more likely than Nerine, one must take into account that Lisianthus' key questions have 2, 4 & 2 choices respectively, while Nerine has 2, 4 & (effectively) 4 respectively, making her less likely. I'll go into more detail about this soon. That Nerine is just as likely as Asa (assuming random choices made) actually surprised me though. (And whether or not Primula's route has been unlocked is actually irrelevant, so Nerine has the same likelihood even for a new reader)
One of the benefits to have done this all in binary is that it makes it really easy to see patterns. I'll demonstrate with Asa's results: 011010000 011010001 011010010 011010011 011110000 011110001 011110010 011110011 111010000 111010001 111010010 111010011 111110000 111110001 111110010 111110011 Do you see the pattern? They're all X11X100XX, or "Somebody else", "Maybe I should mention Asa?", and "Go home with a friend", with none of the other choices mattering at all. Considering that Nerine & Lisianthus are also short, I'll test theirs too. Nerine first. 101000000 101000001 101000010 101000011 101000100 101000101 101000110 101000111 101100000 101100001 101100010 101100011 101100100 101100101 101100110 101100111 Similar to Asa, this is simply 101X00XXX, or "Ask about Nerine", "Nerine", and "I guess I'm free". Lisianthus is slightly more complicated though: 000000000 000000001 000000100 000000101 000001000 000001100 000010000 000010100 000011000 000011100 000100000 000100001 000100100 000100101 000101000 000101001 000101100 000101101 000110000 000110001 000110100 000110101 000111000 000111001 000111100 000111101 This can be split up into a number of parts: 000000X0X, 0000??X00, and 0001XXX0X. Which is to say, 000XXXX0X when it is not also XXX0??XX1. The ?? refers to all three of the choices when Kaede is teaching Primula how to cook (It's not "all four of the choices" because 00 in that spot is covered by helping Nerine with the garbage). 000XXXX0X consists of the choices "Ask about Sia", "Lisianthus", and "Look around a little longer". As for Primula though, I'll just put it simply and say that it's the afore-mentioned XXX0??XX1. I could list them all as I just did for Asa, Nerine & Lisianthus, but the conclusion isn't interesting enough to be worth the clutter. XXX0??XX1 consists of the choices "Take her in", "Actually I've got something to do", and "Take this opportunity to do something with Primula". Finally, Kaede is the ending hit whenever you don't hit one of the others'. I think it's best summarized as X????????, where every single one of those question marks is very conditional regarding which other choices had been picked.
Aaaand... that's all I can think of that I wanted to do. Sorry if it got a bit boring toward the end there, but if anybody has any suggestions as to anything else they wanted to know about Shuffle, I'm sure I could help. As for my plans now though, that's to get the VN Kanon patched, which has nothing to do with SHUFFLE!. :P おわり
Wow.... Kaede is..... Anyway, play G-Senjou No Maou next.
Yeah, she's a bit much. You can be sure I got tired of seeing the first few scenes of her route. I'll look into it. . ...A fix to the above though:
As for Primula though, I'll just put it simply and say that it's the afore-mentioned XXX 0??XX 1. I could list them all as I just did for Asa, Nerine & Lisianthus, but the conclusion isn't interesting enough to be worth the clutter.should be
I have no idea why this bumped to the top of the LB list, but I'm not complaining. >_> <_<
