Final version of Hetaoni is ready to be released but…
It seems the Hetalia fandom has not taken the rules seriously and has broken the trust of the makers.
On 11/24/12 PianoDream made this announcent
"For now, a public release of the final version of HetaOni English Version is not truly considered.
What I mean is that:
The game is completed, fully encoded and hopefully unbugged. It's technically ready for release.
However, it appears that many, many, many people across the fandom have kept on breaking our rules of use despite the numerous warnings we gave.
The main one of them was: not ripping anything of the game. Especially images.
And INCLUDING SCREENSHOTS.
And yet, if you take a peek at the HetaOni tag on tumblr, you can find more than plenty of reposted screenshots of ripped CGs scenes.
So, well, here's our decision,Neoand I's decision: no public distribution for now.
So far, only a few people who I trust and know are worth it will get the final version, and then, if the fandom behaves, or at least spreads the word and swears to behave, I'll make a public download available, BUT you'll have to read terms and conditions entirely before unlocking the archive, and, if I find one single rule broken, it'll be taken down.
I now would like everyone on the fnadom to spread this word across Tumblr, Deviantart and other websites. Rules are quite simple. It was up to you to respect them and sadly the amount of uncaring weeaboos is now too high for me to not mind."

Guys… Don't blow this chance. They worked exceptionally hard in making this and it would be sad to see that all that hard work goes down the drain because the fandom is taking for granted all of their efforts.
Please spread the word and maybe Hetalia fans can redeem themselves.
La versión final de Hetaoni esta lista para ser lanzada pero...
Al parecer el fandom de Hetalia no han tomado las reglas seriamente y han quebrado la confianza de los creadores.
El 24/11/12 PianoDream hizo este anuncio
"Por ahora, el lanzamiento al público de la versión final de Hetaoni Versión Inglés no es realmente considerado.
Lo que quiero decir es que:
El juego ya esta completo, completamente codificado y "hopefully unbugged" (no sé muy bien que significa lo último). Técnicamente se encuentra listo para lanzarse.
Sin embargo, parece que mucha, mucha, mucha gente de todo el fandom estuvieron quebrando nuestras reglas de uso a pesar de las numerosas advertencias que hemos dado.
La principal de ellas era: no sacar nada del juego. Especialmente imágenes. E INCLUYENDO CAPTURAS DE PANTALLA.
Y sin embargo, si das un vistazo al tag de HetaOni en tumblr, puedes encontrar un montón de capturas de pantalla de escenas.
Así que, bueno, esta es nuestra decisión, la decisión de Neoand I: no distribución pública por el momento.
Hasta el momento, sólo unas pocas personas en las que confió y conozco que valen van a tener la versión final, y luego, si el fandom se comporta, o al menos divulga la noticia y jura que se comportará, voy a hacer la descarga pública, PERO ustedes tendrán que leer los términos y condiciones completamente antes de desbloquear el archivo, y, si encuentro una sola regla rota, serán tomados de baja.
Yo sé que, como todo fandom, divulgarán la noticia por Tumblr, Deviantart y otros sitios. Las reglas son fáciles. Era cuestión de ustedes respetarlas y lamentablemente la cantidad de desconsiderados "weeaboos" (?) es bastante elevada ahora que no puede no importarme."

Chicos... No desperdicien esta oportunidad. Ellos han trabajo excepcionalmente duro en hacer esto y sería triste ver que todo ese trabajo duro decaiga porque el fandom de por sentado todos sus esfuerzos.
Por favor divulga la noticia y quizás los fans de Hetalia puedan redimirse.
Just because a few people are posting the photos doesn't mean EVERYONE shouldn't be able to see the ending. Can't you just ban those people and let us get on with the game? You can't end it on "Italy! Italy!"
I think it's been long enough for us to suffer the wait (three years) and the people who did it in the first place, though how stupid they are for not reading the rules of the game, should just be blocked from downloading it. You could ask for the Email or Phone Number and make sure that you check or track the owners to see what they've one in the past on their computers.
Surely, you could just say, "Yes, you can post the photos as long as you add the source and only post it in this group on Facebook." Then people can say what they want about the game and you can continue with updates.
The people who did that in the first place were probably just saying, "Come check out this game!" or "Wanna play this with me?"
I just don't believe that we all can't find out what Japan meant when he was going to wipe Italy's face or if Spain and Romano will ever get back to their time because of a few idiots who forgot the rules!
It's something everyone has to expect, someone breaking a rule. Tell ME if you've ever broken a rule. Everyone has done it before, even I have.
You've worked so hard in translating the game so far, so why not finish it? It's one game that has to be completed, in my opinion. That's why I've been glued to the laptop, trying to get away from ???.
I don't know if you'll read this but thank you for letting me take up some of your time. I hope you reply soon!
If you still have the files and you don't mind mailing me them, you can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org .
I've just finished the game for the first time and I was so so so so SO excited to see how it would end, only for the update to be ripped from the fandom's very fingers because a couple of people who couldn't follow the fucking terms and conditions.
I mean, I can understand whole heartily how frustrated the game makers must've felt to have their game leaked out into the internet after specifying rather intricately in the Terms and Conditions about what would happen if one were not to follow the rules put into place. BUT IT'S BEEN THREE YEARS.
You can't always expect a group of people (much less a fandom) to not leak any images/spoilers on the internet. I mean, they're excited fans and they just want to spread their happiness (but mostly gut-wrenching sadness) to their fellow peers.
I'm not saying that this type of thing is going to get any better. It's really not. There's always going to be that one group of rule breakers that decides that it would be okay to post anything from the game on Tumblr, Deviant Art, etc.
It's just something that you have to expect and look out for.
Instead of punishing the whole fandom who's been waiting patiently all this time to play the ending of the game, maybe it's about time to release the long-awaited update, but with a little more caution and awareness.
Understand that not everyone is able to have the same ethical motive as each other, and build off from that rather than deprive all of us from playing the beautiful game you worked so hard to translate.
(P.S I doubt that they will actually read this but I just needed to get this out of my system. I hope this proved at least a little insightful.)
I really loved it
My Emotions : something that I had in my heart so it was unknown but mixed of happy,sadness and anger
Reasons of these emotions : Happy to make translation, Sad of disappointed people who breaking it, and Anger is same reason of sadness
Reasons to typing this comment : I'm sorry makers.. but don't worry... we will do our own right now....sorry making you mad...you can type what you want to this comment...you can send someone or spread it I have no reason of it
Real reasons : Thank you...of our new consequences...we're really appreciate it...I know you did your best to translate of it....
anyway it still looks AMAZING! GREAT JOB!
please.... release the game, RELEASE THE HETALIA WITHIN YOU!
edit: I meant "Us"
Because they’re being fucking ridiculous.
Honestly, what the hell do they expect? Search up any game movie and you will get screenshots. You will get gifs. You will get photo-shopped pictures. You will get fanart. That's just how it goes.
You don't see schools shutting down because a student got suspended right? It's pretty much the same situation here, but with a different story.
The fact that I know that this thing is actually finished but they won't send it just because of a group of people who decided to share the game on the internet, is hysterical. In the bad way. I mean, they’re killing their own creation! Don’t they want to get it to stretch its way into the fandom so people will play it?
Because if they really thought people weren't going to break the rules, the game shouldn't have been made in the first place.
And who are they to pick favourites by giving it to friends? Sure they're friends, but those friends are also part of the fandom. And just like their friends, a lot of the fandom as well have done nothing to break the rules in any way.
I have to admit, I was literally clutching my tissue box at the anticipation for the ending, only for it to be discontinued. Okay? After finding this out, I threw that box at the fucking wall.
What am I trying to get at? They should not expect us to treat them like some almighty God and beg them for our forgiveness. They’re as much of a stranger to us as we are to them. I understand that they are the makers of the game and have the judgement to choose whether or not they release it. But how they’re doing it is just unfair to everyone who hasn't even done anything. My advice to them is to use some common sense. This is the internet we’re talking about here. If you really think everything is going to go your way or the highway, you are mistaken my friend.
I apologize if this post/rant was rather blunt and rude, but in all honesty, it had to be said, as well as had to be out of my system.
I heard that too, but they seemed so defensive and strict about the game, I simply figured it was theirs.
This is the Internet, after all. Do you know what really got on my nerves? They added a screamer to the MMDs should someone try to screenshot those. I accidentally experienced that, and I had a nightmare afterwards. What to do, though? Tell Pianodream? No one would believe the whole 'it was an accident' thing and dismiss it, tell me it's my fault. It's stupid. People are excited, no one has EVER claimed that they MADE any of those, and even if they did, they'd be taken down faster than the game after a broken rule. Seriously. You made those and you placed them in the game. Worst it could do is make you more popular.
Thank you for putting it into words. I'm tired of their shit.
Absolutely correct. I don’t see how the fandom could just be manipulated so easily into siding with the Makers into blaming the rule-breakers. Yes, I understand they broke the rules, but rules shouldn’t have been laid down in the first place, because you can’t expect everyone to follow them.
And are you serious? No, like, are you actually shitting me? Why the hell would anyone think it’s okay to put screamers? Those things can cause fucking panic attacks and they thought it was okay to put them in the game if someone tried to take a screenshot? Did they really have to resort to that? Now that gets me pissed.
And I agree, if no one claimed that they made the MMD’s, the level design or whatever else, they shouldn’t fucking care. “Hey! I drew that! Yes, I know you didn’t make it, because it’s mine, but you have a copy of it! So that means you stole it from me!” That is not how it works, okay.
And finally, you’re welcome, and don’t worry, you’re not the only one that’s tired them.
You’re welcome, I would have taken more time to write that whole rant, but boy was my blood just boiling.
Also, I checked their facebook page-at least one of them didn't even know the link had been taken down until recently. This is all so petty.
sorry if this message is rude of me to post, and its kinda long sorry.
It's sad but true, even though the rules are so clear, there will still be a few people that break them and ruin it for everyone else..
I have been re-watching the Let's Play of HetaOni I originally watched when I found the game and this is my eighth time this week doing so.
(I also may or may not have been attempting to draw certain scenes and also may or may not have been failing)
