what software are you using? if you're using word or google docs, you need to turn off your autocorrect for those first. It works perfectly for me, cos that's what I do. you don't even need to put the curly quotes in it, just use the flat one and replace all. --Pryun - Talk 17:36, 3 July 2012 (CDT)

Imma using microsoft words. How do you turn off the auto correct? --Castor212 19:02, 3 July 2012 (CDT)

uhh.. depends on the version... for my current version it's file>options>autocorrect>auto format as you type> straight quotes with curly quotes, but my previous version was something else. Just hunt down autocorrect on your menu and get rid of smart quotes. --Pryun - Talk 05:38, 4 July 2012 (CDT)

Got it, thx --Castor212 10:31, 4 July 2012 (CDT)

Cleaning Images[edit]

Photoshop. First open the image and create a Copy layer of the background. Name it "Layer 1". Then go to to the Image menubar item >> Adjustments >> Levels... (Do not choose Auto Levels). Make the adjustments to the black and white sliders found just below the graph, until the whites are white and the blacks are black. Make further adjustments until the overall pic is at optimal viewing form. Hit OK. If you like you can also adjust the brightness/contrast or color balance. Now comes the hard part. You see the japanese text? That has to be removed properly. Use the clone brush. Many times you'll have to zoom in alot and reduce the size of the clone brush and delicately "clean" the japanese text. Use the smudge and blur tools where necessary. Use the pen tool to redraw lines (better to do line redrawing on a new layer and then merge when completed). Finally, you must make a choice. If your images has a lot of dust and scratches then you must remove them by going to Filter >> Noise and then choose either Dust an d Scratches or Despeckle. After making the change compare before and after by undo and redo. Choose the better option even if you have to undo it (there are times when it's better not to remove the dust and scratches. That's all for cleaning. Zero2001 - Talk - 08:18, 29 October 2012 (CDT)

Important: To insert text, first search google for Blambot's Free fonts. You'll find Blambot's site, download all his free fonts and use a font manager like NexusFont to manage them. Anime Ace 2.0 is the default for speech but you can make your choice from Blambot's collection. use the text tool and type it in. That's all. Zero2001 - Talk - 08:18, 29 October 2012 (CDT)

There are manga cleaning tutorials on the web, search them out. It'll be tough work. Even I'm still an amateur at this. Plus cleaning color images are much harder than the grayscale images. Zero2001 - Talk - 08:20, 29 October 2012 (CDT)

Whoa. Thanks, I'll try it. Castor212 (talk) 08:28, 29 October 2012 (CDT)

Here: This might help. You'll have to learn how to clean grayscale images before you can do color images. Don't forget about Blambot, the link doesn't give enough info on fonts, that section is outdated. Although I do admit the fonts there are in my collection as well and sometimes I use them.

This guide is helpinhg me a lot, thx man. Castor212 (talk) 23:05, 9 July 2013 (CDT)

Accel World Yen Press Release[edit]

From what I've heard, the first volume of Accel World will be released sometime in 2014. (Since the first volume of SAO has been officially announced to come out in April 2014, it will probably be around then as well.) As such, you don't have to worry, as I fully intend to finish vol 5 before the end of 2013. That much I can guarantee. --Eternal Dreamer (talk) 10:33, 18 September 2013 (CDT)

Thx for the fast reply. I wish you luck, man.

Accel World Image Fonts[edit]

Can I ask what font did you use when photoshopping Accel World? Castor212 (talk) 10:21, 18 September 2013 (CDT) Sorry for the late reply: Novels Art = Manga Temple Introduction Page AW Title and HIMA credits = Arno Pro Vol Number = Consolas Vol Name = Times New Roman (Bold Italic) Characters and Terminology Page = Tahoma "Accel World" = Lady Ice Info dump page = Tahoma --Armour

They're being worked on. Just some delays with scheduling because we're working on Magisa Garden as well. --Armourcore9brker (talk) 21:23, 9 November 2013 (CST)
