As you can see, there is TONS of gibberish and question marks instead of proper japanese kanji/hiragana/katana, hence demonstrating that it isn't set appropriately in japanese.
i'm having trouble with both methods, changing the locale doesn't work and when i use applocale only the first window has proper japanese, the rest of the windows have the random characters

The killer does not always do the best moves, that's been implied since the start. I would say more but that spoils chapter 3.

Well well well. It would seem me and Battler did come to more or less the same conclusion, with a minor difference with the issue of the key. I'm altering my theory to fit with Battler's theory.

Also I feel the need to completely disregard the second murders...

Also after further rumination, I have NO IDEA how to explain the Servant Room and Natsuhi's Room.

The tips don't necessarily tell you the truth.

Really? Just to have a comparison can this be applied in the case of Higurashi? Were those TIPS helping or deceiving?

I'd say all the TIPS are true in Umineko depending on your pov

I noticed in episode 2 Beatrice after eating the sweet that Shannon brought to her she mentions a "Dolce Vita" from "Nero" and a "Rose Dolce".

Now I'm totally clueless about that "Dolce Vita", the first thing that comes to mind is Fellini's most renown movie, but that certainly isn't a sweet nor a cake.

I'm also clueless about "Nero". Is it a city a village? Not that I know of. If that's supposed to be a brand maybe it's a spoof of "Ferrero"?

"Rose Dolce" is a lot easier. "Dolce" literally means "sweet" and it can be used for any kind of sweet food (except fruit) so cake, pastries and even candies.
This is most certainly a "Torta di Rose" (literally: rose cake)

BTW is this a proof that Beatrice isn't just a fancy name and she is supposed to be italian?

Shannon is a good character and it's too bad that she dies right away in EP 1. A lot of people I know pit her as the 'damsel in distress' character, but the amusing part is that Jessica and George are more of that type as seen in EP 2.

I guess at least you pass the mind-raped part unharmed.

Well, there's a lot more fun up ahed in EP3. Enjoy your staying at Rokkenjima.

Just finished reading Umineko episode 2 as well as episode 2 tea party and ???

and I have the following observations:

1. Have anyone else noticed that in the tips Kumazawa is not described as furniture created by Kinzo as Shannon, Kanon and Genji are...... I think there might be some significance to this

2. I really hope that the explanation is not allucinations.... that would suck, I think the magic scenes are just Beato showing Batler how she would have done it with magic, much like she did in the tea party of epi one

3. Beatrice said Battler was incompetent in red which leads me believe that Kyrie. who seems to be a superior detective than Battler, surviving the first twilight is essential for defeating Beatrice, I think Bernkastel would eventually cause this to happen in order to make the game more even.

4. Can anyone explain if the portrait of Jessica-Beatrice, the beatrice with school girl jacket that looks similar to Jessica clothes is real.. Im really confused about this 2 portraits.

5. Am I the only one who finds some religious subtext to Umineko

6. Am I the only one bothered that Battler does not even once think about Ange during Episode 1 and 2...... any normal person would have been thinking aobut how difficult it would be to tell her her parents are dead or at least how his life is screwed becuase he would have now to be parent to her.....
