Status

Small update,
version 3.4.01 is still pending, but I have fixed amonst other things the end game issue, that was a little complex to get right!

Note on end games for 3.4.01
  • Freelancers can now get custom endings if you keep the slave, they were explicitly excluded before they can get them now BUT only custom endings for the slave, for instance Shampoo's Dickgirl-Mother, Ayane's Loyal etc.
  • You can get multiple 'Meta' endings now like Dickgirl, Cumslut, and maybe more as time allows.
  • Some text formatting issues were fixed

A few more days until I release the version, I just need to review the bug reports and check all issues are fixed that I can reproduce.

I have also been
- updating some assistants and minor slaves to fix and improve images, or add for new sex acts
- fix a bug for Assistant Taki, mind you she has a nice (brief) story idea that can easily have events added, I must add a few as time allows

The image is one of the edits I have done, to try to make sure we have a pregnant image where possible, so I took an existing naked image for Kitana and added a pregnant belly. Have done the same for Jade as well, and will probably do one for Samui.

3rd Party Updates

Some updates for version 3.4

- I am now happy with the integration of the fairy Pfil for the game, the events and images are done. A LOT of editing was needed!

- Chaos-X has sent me an update for the assistant Kanako, I will release the update soon

- bug hunting otherwise continues!!

- I was adding an event for recruiting a fairy slave, Mercedes
from "Odin Sphere" and found a neat CG set by the circle/company "Vanadis", they really like monster girls and have excellent artist(s). Some of their art is used for Marey for instance. I found some really neat Spider Girl images that integrate with the event for Mercedes. So this means we may have a new capturable slave, but probably in version 3.4.02.

- SeiaDoon and abisal have released an early alpha for Kida from the excellent movie "Atlantis the Lost Empire". It is an early release, and needs a lot of image work. I have been asked to note that Kida is nowhere near releasable yet.

- Baalshazar has been doing quite a few updates for the slave Aya Shameimaru

- Kaiser Ryu is working on an update for Nina Windia

- Silvertop is working on a new slave, Kanu from Ikkitousen, says most images are ready to go, but is looking/editing a range of pregnant images. Silvertop is also working on the German translation for the game.
EDIT: verson 1.0 of Kanu has been released

- ElPresidente is working on a xml alternate version of Asuka with a range of events with the barmaid Sora

I have been a little unwell recently so the update 3.4.01 is still in development. A number of fixes are complete but others are still pending.

I have done some small changes otherwise, bug fixing can be a little boring at times.

I am tweaking the fairy encounters so one possible reward for helping the fairies is a willing fairy slave, Pfil, from the mangas 'Bondage Fairies' by Kondom. These are early H-Mangas I remember fondly, despite the bestiality/insect-sex in it. Pfil is an almost complete slave.

I also have another fairy slave planned you can rescue from a spider-girl in the forest, based on Mercedes from 'Odin Sphere'. She is a young character and generally flat-chested, but I do not think underage.

I have also updated the minor slaves Maid Tara and Anesthesia for additional images and events.

In 3.4.01 there will be the ability to train fully any minor slave. If you do then you will see a lot of default images, but a few minor slaves are updated for more images (Maid Tara, Anesthesia, Pfil, Mercedes and a few images here and there for others)

Problems with verson 3.4

There have been some issues reported for version 3.4 that have not been addressed in the last fix. I am just here going to give some workarounds or direct you to fixes

Issues that can be fixed short of a new game update

Sora
Sora can appear ALWAYS when you have your slave work in the Sleazy Bar.  A small bug, and can be resolved by taking your slave for a walk in the Slums until you meet Sora there.

Chun-Li
The images for Chun-Li are missing for both torrent and Packs versions of the game. I have updated Slave Pack 3 to include the missing files. If you download and extract the pack into your game installations this will fix the issue

Super Sonico and Sona
The images for these slaves were mixed by accident in creating slave pack 11. Super Sonico's images were missing basically and mixed into Sona's folder. This issue does not exist for people who used the torrent. To resolve this download Slave Pack 11 and extract into your game installation. If preferred you can visit the Futanari Palace and download the slaves separately and install.


Issues requiring a new game update

Centaur Girl
If you enslave the centaur girl Marey then she still appears in the Forest. There is no solution to this aside from waiting for the update 3.4.01

Endings for slaves
A number of people have reported issues where custom endings are not seen. I can reproduce and undertand how this happen for slaves you personally own, like Shampoo, Ayane. I am not 100% sure otherwise of the cause of some, but I am aware of the reports.

Also, to repeat from some replies, please do note the Freelancer Slave Makers do not see any endings if they choose to keep the slave

Birthing Issues
There are some issues when a slave gives birth where the text and stat effects are mixed up with the main slave

There are quite a number of lesser bugs reported, some simple typos and some logic errors, I will endevour to have these fixed in the 3.4.01 release


 For some questions I have been asked

- if you select Rhia as you assistant she moves in, and becomes a permanent member of your home

- you cannot convert a minor slave to a traniable slave. The description I said in the feature list means that developers can do this if desired. In general Minor Slaves do not have enough images to create a full and trainable slave, so if I were to make this general you would see a lot of generic images and blank ones, especially dresses and mundane activities like cooking/cleaning etc.

- I should make the Slave Maker Witch and Pagan advantages more balanced


EDIT: Small Request
 One bug I have had reported a number of times is where the skills for your slave a mixed up, overlapping with the skills from a slave you have been talking to or your assistant. To date I have not been able to reproduce this or had someone tell be how to reproduce this reliably. By this a mean someone say
- do x, then do y, then do z and it will ALWAY happen
- and provide a save game that oes this, or give instruction how to do it from the start of a new game.
If you can reproduce this please let me know.

Thanks all, I have found and fixed the bug

Post Release Notes

Since the release of 3.4 there have been reported a few issues and questions

Small Update
For bug reports here and the forums, here is a small fix for some reported issues. No coding changes are in this (except a trivial one for Krystal), I will release a formal 3.4.01 release in the future once I sort out some issues
  • missing minor slaves due to an error in configuration1.xml
  • missing slaves in the market if you used Slave Pack 9, not the torrent, as it was missing some of the files for Kim Possible. Slave Pack 9 has been updated and new links posted. The torrent did not have this bug.
  • Nina, Lamia and Youmu showed the wrong message as to why they could not be trained.
  • Nina, Lamia and Youmu could never be trained due to a 'bug', their xml is updated to work around this.
  • Mikhaila's naked images did not show, the game required them to be png files, again a bug
  • Krystal had a problem with changing from Feral to Beast
  • Issues for Lunch and Launch, includes the code (xml, swf) for the assistant Roshi

Other reported bugs are under investigation.

Install
just extract the file into your game installation

NOTE:
I will update the packs and torrent to include these fixes, but probably once I release 3.4.01

EDIT:
Assistant Jura has a bug in one of her events that was reported after this update. See the first comment for this post for a fix, it will be included in the 3.4.01 update.

Features in Version 3.4
 To address questions as to the new features introduced in version 3.4

  • should be a little faster to play and to load/save games 
  • a slave can be completely converted from assistant to slave, minor slave to slave, slave to minor slave etc. This was only partially effective previously. I will post an updated version of the assistant Arcueid later that demonstrates this. 
  • Avatars for slave makers edited and improved, but not included in the beta download by default. Also revisions to the avatar.xml system. 
  • many updates and improvements for developers, I will post more details later 
  • 100 slave limit increased and xml editable 
  • unlimited number of weapons, armours, from the 32 limit of version 3.3 
  • equipment page is tabbed to allow more items 
  • much more of the game is translatable 
  •  Puppygirl/boy training, thanks to Beast Master Shino, includes new Slave Maker creation options, new items, potions and a new shop 
  • Additional small events when walking and also for schools, jobs, chores.
  • Vampires (and potentially others) use a nocturnal training mode (jobs/chores/schools in the night), sex in the day. Time restrictions are the same for jobs/schools as non-nocturnal!
  • a personality profile system
  • Additional options with skill points after end of training  
  • birthdates and age tracking 
  • more options in "Talk To Slaves" to be intimate with your slave/assistant/lover  
  • you may choose to have no assistant at all, and also have event during game play that lose your assistant
 Other notes
The Assistant Arcueid now has a set of events where she can have her bloodlust inflamed, she will lose control and then will become enslaved and trainable as a slave

Multiple minor slaves have been updated for additional images for the new minor slave sex acts.

The spider girl Arak has new events, try chatting with her, and try letting her 'Play' as an order.

Since the last full version of 3.3 there have been multiple more slaves and minor slaves added to the game.

The centaur girl in the forest can be enslaved, if you have an item, a stat at a certain level and a skill. Only though if she is a dickgirl for now, to be extended for female versions when I write an alternate version of the combat.

Slave Maker Release: Version 3.4

This is the new release for the game, finally ready for all. While it is not bug free from the beta it is fairly stable and I will release fixes.

This contains all released content for the game, all 3rd party slaves, minor slaves, and events. It does exclude some content I do not wish to distrubute, like so loli minor slaves. If you must, there is a thread in the Futanari Palace with some such content.

Due to the amount of time since the last release and the number of changes for slaves, I am only going to provide a full installation for the game. Especially as there were issues people had with the locations of some slaves folders and missing images for minor slaves and so on. This will ensure we are all at the same point.

Still if bandwidth is an issue for you see lower, I will give instructions how you can upgrade an installation with minimal downloads (405Mb), and also by using the provided torrent.

Note: the game is currently 5.7Gb in size

Full Installation
You may download the game using the torrent or the Packs below.

Torrent
https://www.dropbox.com/s/5jdrukwdx4exe47/SlaveMaker%203.4.torrent

Magnet link
magnet:?xt=urn:btih:GBHSFJJDR23DOF6BPD3QZN6AVEEJFAYU

these are all 5.2Mb is size torrents. When the torrent starts it will create a folder
SlaveMaker 3.4 in you standard torrent folder. When the torrent completes, move this to the location of your choice, you may rename it if you wish.

See the upgrade details below for a way to finish downloading faster using the torrent, but with some possible left over, and harmless files.

Note:
I will not provide magnet links for the torrent, please do not ask. If someone else provides me such a link I will repost.


Packs
Theses are the game divided into parts, each allowing selected portions of the game to be dowloaded. This allows you to save download time and bandwidth as you need.

All files in the packs are in the torrent version, there is no need to download both

I will not be providing separate torrents for the packs.

The packs are
  • Basic Pack - this is the core game. It is a basic playable version of the game with a few slaves,  assistants and minor slaves
  • Assistants Pack - an add-on that adds many more assistants for the game
  • Minor Slaves Pack - an add-on that adds many more minor slaves to the game
  • Events Pack - an add-on that adds additional content to the game, developed by 3rd party developers
  • Slave Packs 1 to 11 - These are collections of 10 slaves for the game (packs 10 and 11 have less than 10 slaves)
Installing:
Download the file or files and extract into a folder of your choice. Each downloaded file will create a folder
SlaveMaker 3.4
if asked merge any folders in common, you should not be asked to overwrite any files, but if asked then agree to do so.
DO NOT extract each pack into a separate folder, make sure each are extracted into the same base folder

Whole Game Mirror
 seregil has posted a mirror for the game. These are not my links directly and are not broken up in the same way as my Packs above.

I downloaded the torrent, and then put it in a set of rar files which I uploaded to a couple file hosts. Hopefully this can help others game the game more easily. Since this is the torrent, you can just extract the folder and play the game immediately (just follow the torrent instructions that cmacleod42 gives above for the torrent).

Files are interchangeable between hosts (you may have to rename them a little if underscores are added automatically, etc by the host systems).

Upgrading
To upgrade an existing installation you can use either the torrent or dowload selected files from the filehost links.

Torrent
This process is somewhat safer than the filehost method below, as after the torrent finishes you will have all files in the game in their correct locations. You may have some files duplicated in old locations but they are harmless, but will take some excess space on you hardrive.
  • start the torrent, wait for it to allocate all files
  • stop the torrent and exit your client (do not delete the torrent, just pause it)
  • find the folder your torrent client downloads into and the SlaveMaker 3.4 folder it is using
  • copy your current game into that folder, replacing all files when asked.
  • re-run your torrent client and resume the torrent. It will now continue, and a large percentage of the new version will be complete already 

Filehosts
Download the Basic Pack, extract into a temporary folder. Copy the contents of the folder it creates
SlaveMaker 3.4
and copy it into your current game installation.

Optionally also download the Assistant, Minor Slaves and Events packs, and any slave packs you like. In the game installation there is a file
Slave List.html
that details what slave is in what pack


Important
If you upgrade this way
a) there will be left over files from the previous version that were moved, up to and including complete slaves. Your game will be somewhat larger, but these will not affect game play

b) there are possible issues with using the filehost method where slaves may not work if you do not download the slave pack for them. DO NOT report any bugs, my answer will be to ask you to redownload the game.
