I am not a fan of Windows 10

I was just doing some work on the game again, just hunting for bugs and small tweaks and Windows crashed on me a few times.

Since I upgraded to Windows 10 I keep seeing Explorer crashing a lot, and a lot of things just run poorly in comparison to my previous Windows 7 installation.

Admittedly my computer is quite old, still a 32 bit system with only 2Gb usable memory. I have a laptop of similar nature, running Vista (I am going to have to upgrade that soon as it is nearing it's end of life) When I can afford it I will have to get a new desktop system, when I can afford it.

But still Windows 10 seems more optimised to be used on a handheld/tablet or with a touch screen and is a pain at times to use. Still, enough complaining, it is the current Windows, and I am a computer professional so I use it to gain knowledge and experience, but I do not like it!

As an aside, still got a damned cold, but the temperatures have passed and just feeling run down and coughing a bit. Apparently the strain going around in my local area is a particularly long lasting one, not as sever as many, just hangs around a lot. But I am a diabetic and these things hit me a bit harder.

Sorry for lack of updates

Hi,
sorry for not posting much recently, I have been ill with a cold for a couple of weeks and otherwise a little sidetracked.

I have only been working a limited amount on SlaveMaker recently, it has been difficult to find time, between health and some other things. I was working a little on another game and sometimes when you are in the middle of something it is difficult to break away from it.

I cannot give an estimate at this time for the next release of SlaveMaker, I hope in the next month or so, but I have said that the last couple of posts, but assuming I get over this cold soon (it is a stubborn one) I hope to keep this estimate.

Still Here!

Sorry I have not posted recently, some distractions with health, and some other games has kepy my work on the game limited recently.

My plan for a release end the end of February clearly fell through but I am hopefule for a release at the end of this month. I took a survey from people at the Futanari Palace as to what I should be concentrating on and my decision is

- bug fixes

- adding alternate ways to obtain slaves, like the change in 3.5 release for Elena and Mileena for instance

- concentrate on features partially implemented and well implement them. So referred events for various Slave Maker backgrounds or disadvantages and so on.


Otherwise

- played and loved the final version of Overwhored!! Nice to see cypress_z is working on a new game as well!
- some work with a person on a generic figure drawing process for javascript, derived from some code in another game I develop though the base code was by another person still
- some work on the game "A Spell for All"

Other Games (and a small status note)

Hi for those interested some favourite adult games of mine have been updated recently(ish)

Overwhored
http://overwhored.blogspot.com.au/
The game has had a 0.9.5 release and is close to a final release. If you have not tried it, it is an excellent game written with good humour and mind control.

Harem
http://harem-vx.blogspot.pt/
This game resumed development to my great pleasure after a long delay. They are more re-writing the game as a version 2, revising and improving it

A Spell for All
http://www.hypnopics-collective.net/smf_forum/index.php?topic=21244.0
I have been involved in a new release of this mind control game, an old game I am quite fond of. It is still incomplete (no final ending) and a lot more possible content to go. You have to register with the forum, but I could post links for the game is desired.


Slave Maker Status
After a delay due to a bad cold and some other things I am working towards an update hopefully later this month.

I have discussed with Kimochi about hosting the game there but unfortunately I cannot currently. My home computers are both older 32 bit systems and the current client for Kimochi is 64 bit only. They have mentioned about a possible 32 bit client or an alternate publishing method.

Futanari Palace, but if you are feeling brave
https://mega.co.nz/#!ctAEACgC!DkNLXsx9YgGeeUZikGWKLLPHUj-RwnNQQWsyKSLTNHw
This is strictly for 3.5.01 instalaltions and I would recommend

load an existing save)

Slave Maker 3.5.01 Update

Since the release of version 3.5 I have had a range of bug reports and I have fixed a lot of reported issues. A majority of the reports were minor, a couple less so.

This update fixes the following issues

- fixes resting while supervising your slave
- naked image for slave maker not working correctly
- a typo while working at the onsen
- a miss-named image for Cammy
- a re-encoded image that was reported as suspect by an antivirus program (it is NOT a problem but this is to try to quiet the AV program)
- some updated Russian translations
- if you installed using the first versions of the packs some files were omitted (translations and an event) All these are included here
- image problems for Urd and Shampoo
- tentacle icon not in the right place on the Take a Walk map
- tentacle attacks not happening is some places, notably the Docks
- no text for tentacle attacks at the docks
- some combats end abruptly, say defeating Marey, or fighting the Orc
- End Game Menu appearing when clicking Leave after starting a new game
- temporary fix for some typos for ElPresidentes 'Extra Events' (Orc and Elf events in the Forest)
- Fix some issues in the Options screen for some hints
- stat bars did not fill the available area
- sex skill icons never disappeared
- fixes for minor slave Louis (Next disappearing)
- Elena was available for sale incorrectly
- Lainath kept asking about Arak even if you said No
- broken events in Dunmyre
- some small edits for Shiziku events
- an image fix for Shampoo Dance contest
- fixes cases where puppytraining skill can vanish
- some typos
- an undefined name in the Kennels
- some blank images for Onsen Service
- a bad background image (too marrow)
- an image replaced in martial training so the character can be used as a NPC (Ayumi from X-Blades)
- fix some small issues around removing puppy/cat items
- incorrectly showing Astrid's home in Dunmyre

Additionally this adds new features
- Implements Catgirl, Ponygirl, Lesbian and Weapon trainers for Dunmyre, so all trainings are possible there, except swimming. Note Lesbian and Ponygirl are introduced quite differently and Weapons are simpler
- the Kennels now also sells Catgirl items, at a higher price than Lady Farun sells them, to allow for no Lady Farun in Dunmyre
- two dickgirl slave maker avatars updated/replaced with more images (an omission in the original release)
- Minor slave Cynthia (Pokemon) has had a major image upgrade to allow for full slave training (some more updates for her will follow for dresses and events), she now has 110 images (from the original 14)
- when you purchase a minor slave it will give you an approximate count of their available images. The count given is a minimum number but the actual count may be a a bit higher
- some improvements for developers

I will update the torrent early in the new year when I return from holidays.

EDIT:
abisal has reported that an xml for Bulma is incorrect for the game
https://mega.nz/#!c9sTABiC!w_sqz_vdthQmMiKNUGAbGlNlFijaUKLCgIp8HcAUEWo

Installation
This an update only, to install
  • copy the downloaded archive into your existing version 3.5 game installation
  • extract the archive into that folder, do not extract into a sub-folder and replace any files when asked
Notes On Hangs and Crashes
People have reported issues with the game hanging or crashing when either
  • loading a game
  • starting a new slave
  • during end game
I have so far failed to reproduce these issues, but I did a small change to configuration.xml that may help (probably not). If you had edited this file you will have to re-apply your edits.

For some peoples reports some of these issues seem more tied to the executable version of the game. If you are using it them I suggest using the swf version on the game. To use it either
Note on some common reports
No need to report any of these issues
 - Lady Grey has no images when she is a member of your household. This is a limitation of the current event implementation and is now a 3rd party event
- there is no more content for the Red Lily
- it is known when you save plannings and reload a game some custom actions like the Red Lily and some others can get blanked out
- Minimum values 'bar' do not appear for statistics.

Developers
The SDK for the game has been updated, primarily for updated classes and an updated XML Creator tool. Some documentation changes but not as much as there should be.

This is of no use for a person who is playing the game, only for people who wish to develop new content for the game
