Small Progress Notes

 Wiki
Hi, I am informed the wiki is back up again.

www.otakubell.com/smw/index.php/Main_Page


Recent Changes
I have been revising some of the shops to allow unrestricted contents. The first I have done is the armoury to allow more weapons and armour. I have developed the code using generic classes, to make other shops easier to convert and to allow for conversion to AS3 eventually.



Some general screen shots, Still some fine tuning left
  • buttons need appearance tweaking
  • ideally items need to be adjusted in size. The sword for instance is a bit small


 Updated Slave, Nina Windia

Kaiser Ryu has updated his slave Nina Windia, with significantly rearranged images and now with events and custom content.

dl.dropbox.com/u/60116649/Nina v3.rar

From Kaiser Ryu's post

IMPORTANT: I changed a lot of pics around, got rid of a bunch of look alikes, and some other edits. Please delete the old Nina image folder prior to unpacking this.

Assuming I did it right, here's an updated Nina. Three all new events and the other two events with Rinpuu have been edited to suck less. There are now a total of 3 events with Rinpuu and one each with Deis and Momo. I wanted to do more before new release, but apparently I screwed up my neck which in turn is making my hand slightly numb. 

Now that I'm starting to give a bit more of a story, I'm getting more interested in feedback. As always, if something doesn't make sense or fires weirdly, let me know.

Any feedback about Nina should be posted in her development thread in the Futanari Palace

  1. New shop looks neat... I assume, if its to be unlimited that we'll be able to scroll left and right to see more items?

    1. Check the Weapon screen, you will see a button on the lower right

      Delete
    2. Ah, I see it... not the most obvious location for it... I'd think it'd make more sense in the main window near to the "show [xxx]" button.

      Delete
    3. I missed that too!

  2. When will there be another full release? I had computer problems recently and lost almost everything, I'm hoping for a full release soon so that I can save time rather than getting all the updates at once.

    I also saved the folder that the slavemaker folder was in, if I rename the folders to match the originals, is there any chance of getting my saves back? (it was a factory reset, saved the folder on a USB)

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. The save games are stored in Windows application data folder (similar concept for other OS's) so if you did not refomat or reinstall windows then the saves should still be there.
      It depends on the computer issues and what went wrong.

      There will not be a new release for a few weeks for me to finalise some features and test more.

      Delete
    2. would a factory reset count as reformatting?

      Delete
    3. A factory reset is reformatting, I think. Anyways, you should be able to just copy the slavemaker folder to where you like and play the copied file right where you left off.

  3. Im sorry to say but I have a problem with the tentacles story line. every time i tell the fairy i want to be a man or woman she turns me into a futa and the part with fighting the tentacles in the house it keeps on freezing so im unable to continue. I just hope im the only one with this problem but if its a problem for all please try to fix it.

    1. Had the same issue. Dl'd the alternate event.txt file from an earlier post talking about lockups and it got rid of it hanging up on the tentacle/house thing. Though it got rid of it altogether and i'm stuck as a futa :( At least the hangup stopped.

      Delete
    2. These are known and reported. You will have to wait for a new version of the game and the tentacle raid event.

      See my Christmas post for instructions to disable the event if you want.

      Delete
    3. Are you saying that the tentacle raid is close to being finished completely, barring updates of the whole thing? I have waited a good long time for this event

      Delete
    4. Also.. how do you get the fairy thing? I get to go see whats her name but then cant see her after that. Will there be a walkthrough for the Raid once it is completed?

      Delete
    5. the fairy thing is when she tells you to go to a bar. but its the slezy bar not the regular one and thats the problem with being stuck a futa

      Delete
    6. Alright So let me explain a bit.. once you met her and get the crystal.. what do you do afterwards?

      Delete
    7. meet her again then she tells you to do something else... i think it was to meet the fairy after that but not sure so read carefully

      Delete
    8. I cant meet her again. It says something about it not being a good idea to go back

      Delete
  4. Just wanted to say that the whip is, by far, the most powerful weapon in the game. You literally cannot lose (as far as I've seen) in any battle where the enemy doesn't attack and win on their first turn because of devastating stun-lash combination.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. The zombies in the mine are immune to the whip's stun, but that's less of consideration now that that event is one time only.

      Delete
    2. They are? I probably have a bug in mine, because they never managed to get a turn whenever I played.

      On a different note, Morrigan's looking to be the most 'challenging' slave of the group.

      Delete
    3. I agree. With her Specials Endings conditions and her special stat that always need to be monitored... The other slave that I’ve found challenging for the Customs/Specials Endings is Heather. It took me 3 tries to get the (best) ending 'Suspiria', just because I was running out of time. The others endings were much easier to get.

      Delete
  5. okay, it might just be me, but even the earlier slaves (on the first pages of the slave choice) some of them simply do not show the pony tail anymore ;~; it's really weird

    also, have you considered putting in a puppy training event for the slaves? or allowing for .... more.... uh... nonconsensual training (where you actually can force them to behave in specific ways and train them until they are incapable of free thought o.o)

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I'll check the ponytail issue.

      Puppy training has been considered and has a development thread in the forums.

      The non-consensual side I am not interested in. I'll leave it to other developers of slaves to add such content.

      Delete
  6. Since there's so many new slaves getting introduced that start off mostly vanilla and then get worked on later, would it be possible to introduce an option to "reset" a slave? There's a lot of new slaves that I want to try out, but I also like the "progression" aspect of the game, I like saving after each slave. I don't really want to try out a slave and then not save when I'm done with her. If I try out a slave, save, and then she gets updated, I have to make a completely new Slave Maker to try out the updated version.

    1. there is the sandbox mode whuch lets you retrian slaves over and over agaaing (afaik, I could be wrong)

      Delete
    2. Yes, the Sandbox mode allow you to retrain the Slaves as mush as you want. Once, I train one 3 times in a row.

  7. Hey, the new shop looks great! And I m happy that the Wiki is back. I like your game very much! Sorry if my english is bad, but I m from germany.

  8. The drop box link has had too much activity and is deactivated :(
    Mirror PLEASE

  9. The new shop looks great looking forward to the update.

    I don't know if this was brought up yet or not but during the tentacle monster event the bar scene where if you're a male slave trainer you get turned into a futanari and you have three choices to stay as one be completely female or return to being fully male. Even when chosen to be male the protagonist is still futanari just a little thing I thought might need to be addressed.

  10. Will there be options to tweak the maker's clothes? I mean, like the cut-down version of the chain mail instead of the ordinary one or something like an enchant system.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I plan to add choices for clothing, not just armour. Te chain mail bikini is still there for female slave makers.

      I had not thought of an enchant/upgrade system for armour. It depends on what sort of options?

      Delete
    2. Well, exactly, clothes, that is what I had in mind as you can see from my previous comments. It opens the window for all sort attribute changes or side effects, even some events/triggers.

      What I meant with the example was that while it is to be expected that one would buy the ordinary chain mail, some female maker (not all) may wish to trade the armor bonus for some other (like seduction or S&M or exhibitionism or whatever else you might deem appropriate), hence the need for an altered version/versions of the base one. It was then that my RPG experienced mind flew off to enchantments. As for which ones, well, no idea, maybe a xml system to let people contribute.

      Either way, I don't want to sound ungrateful, and you adding the exhibitionist trait for the maker is awesome enough. Tank you very much.

  11. REQUEST: Calender Update
    This is a fun, simulation game and I've been spreading the word.

    With lots of choices for girls, I have a request and I hope it's not too hard to implement. When your training for a girl ends, can a note be attached to the calender on what ending (special or otherwise) or what happened to her be placed in the calender? For example, Bulma - Marriage Ending; Shampoo - Sold (to Irina or to the Lord); Aeris - Lust Faerie... etc.

    I am using a much, much older version so this might already be implemented and if so, that's awesome! If not, then it'd be nice to have to see how your girls turned out over the course of your career. ;)

    And again, thanks for the great game!

    1. This is not done at this time, but fairly easy to do, I'll add it.

  12. First of all: great game, especially with the flexible Slave-Assistant-Minor Slave engine. There is so much to discover ...

    But never the less I wonder when there will be the possibility to give orders to minor slaves. It still states that it is not implemented yet. It would be quite good to have this action item in the engine to improve minor slaves as well ...

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. If you use a minor slave in a sex act their stats do improve in the same way as the primaryu slave, just at a considerably reduced rate. Similary for bought back slaves etc, and your slave maker.

      But, the option is planned just taking a while for me to get around to it.

      Delete
    2. Thanks for the answer. I know to improve the stats and get them all to love my slave maker. Some stats are getting better, some not.

      But it's good to know that it's still in the backlog ... :-)

  13. I find it nearly impossible to get the Naked skill to level up. I cannot remember ever getting it above level 1 and most slaves never reach that. Is this a bug or a misuse of the game system? I have no problem training slaves on difficult setting and getting endings such as Courtesan or Wedding, so I am doing most things well.

    1. One may find that displaying one's true self to the world for short intervals may make one more comfortable with displaying one's true self for more extended periods.

      Delete
    2. You must have your slave do Expose Herself actions several times to increase the naked skill level (3 per level)

      Delete
    3. Ahhh, I always thought it was the Naked action that raised the naked skill.

      Delete
  14. Another question... Can all of the pictures used by the game be brought out into folders so they can be accessible? I like to swap in other pictures and Shampoo's, among others, are unreachable.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Not without significant coding changes for the swf based slaves.

      Delete
    2. OK, I understand, but it was worth asking. Do you have any problem with us modifying swf files for personal use? I'm pretty sure I can manage that, haven't gone that far yet.

      Delete
  15. Topic aside,

    I'm guessing that you're a kiwi cmacleod42? If so then I guess you might get this joke.

    Nice game btw.

  16. When will the next release will be. I'm unable to download any of the previous files because of multiupload crashing and megaupload being seized.

    Sorry to ask you to upload the release soon. But I really love this game and I unfortunately lost all the files for it.

    1. If you had just scrolled down in the main page:
      http://slavemaker3.blogspot.com/2012/01/torrent-assistants.html

      Torrents, or emule, or 4shared links. So your request is invalid.

      People please stop requesting for a new version from cmac, it will be ready when it is ready.

  17. could u make the slavemaker to be able to wear different types of clothing to affect different stats like the slaves. or just to allow clothing that is normally worn by slaves to be worn by the slavemaker

    plus could u tie in the demon/inhibitor potion quest to allow the slavemaker to drink the potion as well

    ReplyDelete
  18. Can you make an update that includes a link to all the latest Updates/Fixes and addons im finding it hard to find them all

    ReplyDelete
  19. Will we ever be able to explore our own homes? Mansion says it has a scary attic (if I recall) and the Keep has "large unexplored areas". So, can we explore those areas, or are there any events that correlate to the houses (besides the Temple)?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Yes, cmac has said time and again that house exploration is planned. However it's not yet in the game, obviously :)

      Delete
    2. Yes definitely, just a matter of time and priotity

  21. I haven't checked the blog in almost a month, and I'm blanching at the thought of looking through the last 8 posts or so and trying to get all the assistants added/updated individually (and making sure I install them right). Is there a cleaned up list or collection of all those updates?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Seriously, you blanch at the thought? Like, effort, too much?
      What is this, the invasion of the anonymous users all mysteriously requesting the very same thing because they can't be arsed to scroll down 8 posts and click 10 or so times? Get real!

      Or, the same person requesting it over and over again hiding behind the anonymous veil. Because I find it kind of strange all these people asking for the same thing, and all anonymous.

      Delete
    2. I am making some downloads of the collected updates. It is just taking a while to get the ready.

      Probably tomorrow

      Delete
    3. @Giannino For the past 8 blog posts there are about 30 separate download links, some of which are updates of each other, with several different ways to implement; some requiring deletion of the original folder, just overwriting what was there, etc. It would have required a couple hours doing it manually and checking the post every time, not copying the links to a download manager and then mass unzipping them.

      And I only posted once; I scanned the other posts, but they were worded very differently than I was thinking. I have no reason yet to make a profile in any of the options.

  22. I'm intrested to work on an slave, thus I'm will surely need help, so which of the two forum should I sign up (or both)?
    For the curisous folk of you, I'm thinnking of 'the wise wolf of yoitsu' and maybe later 'Shion Usuki'.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Futanaripalace without question. It is much more active and most if not all the active people developing a slave have their threads in there. Much more active community for help, questions, and anything else really.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Please consider reducing the repeatedness like excessive clicking etc
    It becomes very time consuming and boring as the game develops

    ReplyDelete
  25. I wish we could also train guys. It's a little bit annoying that there is lots of lesbian sex in the game and no BL love.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I have two questions:
    1. Will later more items?
    2. Unify the images? (Maybe it's sci-fi, but I am a bit distracting, the slave always look different.)

    Anyway, great game and exelent work. I look forward to further improvements. :-)
