End of Beta

I have decided to end the beta releases of version 3.3.

I will do a last run through any reported bugs and fix what I can, and then I will release version 3.3

There will definitely be bugs in it, but so far the general consensus I get from a brief poll I did at the futanari palace is 3.3 is playable and most bugs remaining are not major or are slave specific.
As I noted I will try to fix the remaining bugs, notably issues for Aeris.

Note I will be releasing

a) a basic playable game with a few slaves, assistants and minor slaves
b) a set of packs of
  • additional assistants
  • additional minor slaves
  • groups of slaves
c) a full version of the entire game, by both file hosting, torrent + direct download

I many do some small fix tests semi-closed before the release to check I did not break anything important.

At this time I will aim for a release next weekend. This is not in concrete, health and other things can interfere, but is quite likely

  3. Appreciate everyone's hard work that they have put into this project so that gamers like me can enjoy the gaming experience. I look forward to the full version and any extras that come after. I came in just before beta 15 and have been piecing the game together since trying to get all the slaves and assistants. Only missing a few now as the links are dead thanks to government shutting down sharing sites. I look forward to the release but agree with Kremey don't neglect your health and well being for the game or gamers. We've waited this long what is a little more time. Again I appreciate all the work everyone has put into this game. It is a joy to play.

      The full game is in English. Some parts of it are translated in other languages, like French. My Assistants and Minor Slaves got a French translation, the game interface is also translated (the houses, backgrounds, bottoms for the chores/sex acts…). Some standards events are translated as well.

      However, most Slaves introductions and customs stories are still in English. Gardevoir got a French translation and I’ve made one (not perfect, but good) for Snow White. Most of their Slave Market descriptions are translated thought.

    3. Okay thx M.I.A.
      Do you think there's actually someone who is/will work on a complete Fr translation ? Or will I need to do mine ? XD

    4. M.I.A. (Maia Iliana Arina)August 5, 2012 at 11:00 AM

      I guess I could (maybe not all the game), but it’s a LOT of work, and most slaves/events are coded in Flash/.swf and only their developer could decompile the code, put the French translation, and compile it again.

      Delete
    5. Slaves can also use the xml system for text and be easiliy translated but this does require time and effort to recode.

      Some slaves (see Ranma) have their introduction in the xml, but other code in swf. The xml can be translated.

      Otherwise the remaining core events that are not translated take quite a but of effort to translated and it ofent introduces bugs so it is something I am doing every so often

  7. Just a question but will there be more to come after the full release of v3.3? Like fixing bugs, adding new content, possibly even v3.4 or higher. Or is v3.3 the final product with new slaves and assistants released occasionally? I might have a better idea if I was here since the earlier versions of SlaveMaker, but I was here only since v3.2.

      Yes, there will be more versions. Unless Cmac decide 3.3 to be the Final Version.

  8. Bugs so far to help with the 3.3 release:
    - Sakura has no way to train Work as Ninja, the tattoos never appear.
    - Aeris - Milk Her button vanishes when using her as an assistant, also, no image for this. Had Aeris at 200 Charisma/ Nypho & the beach fairy will not talk to her. Bria & Alice/ Velvet images go blank in the slaves screen when you are training other slaves. Many instances of text blocks starting with code string of "True".
    - Morrigan - multiple issues with code strings in place of text. Also, there appears to be no way to increase her max Obedience. Put the increased cap clothing it raises, but when maxed, the Handcuff Bracelets do nothing.
    - Misako - no image for Fisting. Last time I trained her, when I moved to another slave, all images of my Slave Maker & any new slave are blank in game. No slave image in any window after her.
    - Gold randomly dropping to 0 (cannot figure the exact trigger).
    - Minako - Went from being 6'2" tall to 5'1". Went from full Bi-sexual to Hetero (this has occurred with Naru, Aeris, many other slaves).
    - As of 17a Inhuman Ancestry no longer makes the Uninhibitory Drug variant give the Demon tail, it is now random (does not seem worth the 40 points).
    - Discuss / Congratulate still lists text as "You did well at Discuss etc." instead of listing skills.
    I think you have done a great job on creating this game, so I have tried to text as much as I can. However, it gets so broken, I can rarely get into having a working game that goes past 60 Rep.
    Recommendation: The "random" find items: Demon Bra, Fairie Ring, Halo, etc. These items need to available from the shop. Some of these are needed for certain trainings (Rei/ Assistance training). Set the price high if need be, but it beats reloading the game 20 times to get 1 item.

      Now some of my Assistants give X item at the start of the training. (It can make things easier.) Angewomon, since she’s an angel, give the Halo. Colette, with her angel wings and all, give the Angel Tear. Lillymon and Saria, because of their bonds with the fairies folk, give the Faeries Ring. Finally, Lethe, a True Catgirl in the SM universe, give the Cat Ears and Tail. However, I've not tested that would happen if you switch Assistants. Like, you hire Lethe for the Cat items, and then switch her for one of your brought back slaves. Will the items remains there or…?

    3. M.I.A. (Maia Iliana Arina)August 5, 2012 at 8:38 AM

  11. whenever i pick ami as an assistant her assistant picture always shows up and covers up a large portion of the text that introduces the slave. this appears to only be related to ami (as far as i can tell with my limited assistant "collection") and i tried it with both an ami that had attained the "dark mercury" ending and one that hadnt so as far as i can tell, the unique ending isnt setting any weird flags, but thats all the information i really can get

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I am Ami's developer.

      So far the 'Dark Mercury' end does not cause anything.....yet. But I am in a group of developers and we are working on ALL the remaining sailor senshi (Usagi/Moon, Makoto/Jupiter, Haruka/Uranus, Michiru/Neptune, and Setsuna/Pluto, there is a reason Hotaru/Saturn is not listed, and I will mention it in a minuite.) and if Ami had obtained the 'Dark Mercury' end she can corrupt them as well. I am also working on adding in bonus effects if she becomes Dark Mercury.

      We are working on a storyline between ALL the senshi with MANY differant ways the storyline can go.

      Anyway, Ami's next update later this week will add in a few things including an appearance of the main antagonists of the storyline. They are Black Lady, and Mistress 9.

      Black Lady is an evil version of Chibi-Usa. Here is something from the forum I had posted about the backstory here:

      Back in the past lives of the senshi, Black Lady was the queen of demons. She battled the senshi many times and after kidnapping the young one of the group, she corrupted and aged up the captured senshi turning her into her partner 'Mistress 9'. Mistress 9 the revealed all the secrets and weaknesses of her former allies and friends.

      Together they attacked the senshi. One by one they killed them, and when it was down to the last one, she put the rest of strength into one final attack, and with the dying senshi's last breath she launched the attack, turning Mistress 9 and Black Lady to stone. But knew it would not last forever. For the spirits of the senshi were always reborn, and when the first of their reincarnations had reawakened their abilities and memory, the demon queen, and the corrupted senshi would be released. But it would be to a big surprise to the two of them.

      As soon as the first had awakened their memory, they were freed as expected. However something went wrong, for Black Lady was trapped in the form of a small child, and Mistress 9 had returned to her young age, but her mind remained corrupted. Black Lady tried to use her power to age herself and Mistress 9 back up to adults, but that power seemed to be gone, while all the others remained. Knowing it had to be the fault of the Sailor Senshi, they head out to find them and make them change the two of them back.

My two-cents worth is to drop a link on Rapidshare, which to date has failed Me never. Not to mention that you don't have to wait between downloading the segments, unlike other sites like DepositFiles.

  18. One suggestion, when the slavemaker is a vampire, he can only feed on the main slave. There could be an option on minor slaves/assistants to feed on them

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. This could be easily remedied by including an extra "Feed" button when you spend time via "Talk to Slaves". (the one that gives the additional commands for Intimate/Discuss/Give Orders).

      Is there anyway to create a small coven? I mean make those slaves into vampires too? Maybe some special event when they love you and you are a vampire, they accept becoming yours in mind, flesh and blood?

      On side note, would there be some assistant/slave that could give the ability the Master/Mistress (similar to how Kasumi can give slut maker ability to Slave Maker).

      Just some food for thought.

      Delete
  19. I don't know if this has been mentioned before, but different letters/legnth in your slave maker's name alter what advantages you have for some reason, the name I chose kept selecting fang and claws (or whatever boosts unarmed damage as an advantage) and prevented me from taking blunt and convincing at the same time.

    Also the fortune teller causes the backgrounds to become messed up and use the FT's background for everything.

  21. Something I noticed that was really weird was that if you pick anybody but shampoo as your first slave, the game will have many glitches. One of the most problematic is that after the first slave is finished training, during the assistant selection for the second slave the game will freeze.

  22. you should totally release an update one to update from 3.2.01 it would help a lot of people im guessing, including me

    2. Sorry it is mush too complex to supply an upgrade from 3.2.01, it is too old. I abandoned backward save game compatibilty with 3.2.01 as of 3.2.05 or 3.2.04.

      You can install the new version overtop, but you will likely have to start a new game. If you are not in the middle of training a slave it may upgrade the save ok, but hard to say.

      Otherwise for other updates like slaves etc I have no clear memory of what has changed, aside from a lot!

  23. One minor request: once 3.3 is released, could you include a full list (on the blog entry, of course) of what all's included/been added/changed/whatever?

  25. Great to hear you're gonna push out 3.3!

    However I'd just like to state that the tentacle abduction event(not the raid or the regular tentacle rape scenes) still isn't working, despite doing a fresh install. I figured that it might be something wrong with outdated slave-files but that wasn't it either.

    Is it working for anyone else? It hasn't worked for me at all with any of the beta patches, last time it worked was just plain old 3.2.06.

    Most everything else seems to be working fine and I haven't encountered many bugs, aside from certain screens not showing and some events not letting you continue the game ("next" button not appearing)

      I see, then I must be very unlucky or my whole game (with all the betas and other files installed) has broken on me. No matter, I'm sure everything will work great will a clean install of the future 3.3. By the way, for the ‘weird text position in some events’ issue, I’ve noticed that the events in question (the Latex Slave is a good example) show up fine with a swf based assistant, like Alena, but not with any xml assistant, if that make any sense.

    8. As for events not letting you continue, I don't remember specifics at the moment, but it happens sometimes with, for example, that thing with the bandits in the woods. after you click a choice it may or may not show some text, but there's no button to continue. Another time it happened was during the event where peach gets kidnapped by drug dealers or whatever, if you fight sophitia it might bug and not appear.

      Another thing I've noticed is that pregnancy pictures randomly pop up during mugi events when she tells you what your score is.

  35. In creation of slavemaster with latest beta build

    True Catgirl - do not modify stats during creation

    Starting with leash item for 5pts doesnt grant it at start
    [Only insance it was granted to me was when I played with cock of demonic origin]

    Do not tested other items but I believe result will be the same. Noone chooses those perks anyway :) They are too costly points wise. And after 1st slave training you usually end with surpluss gold.

    Merchant Expert - it grants ability to remember drug/item merchant but they still come to your house/ can be met randomly. Which should be disabled so for 15 points it will confer a little better bonus. [Saving ecounters and time :)]


    Refinement should be obtainable or choosable at more than just one human sub race.

    Same for witch.

    Slave master should have speed value listed [for those combat situations]

    Slave master should have sex skill listed [for those submisive situations]

    After finishing training and choosing to change housing you do not need any gold at all. Still after selecting new occupation you are moved there for free. [Unless you have 10k gold at hand, than you of course lost them :)]

    Sometimes after end of training you loose character portrait
    [Reloading before finishing training after fresh game restart randomly fixes it]
    Changing house increases chance to loose your character portrait

    Skill points after end of training should be issued depending on your score not only +1 if >50
    That way players would be encouraged to aim at better goals. Now you can attain needed 50 really fast but usualy you leave tril of sex addicted mindless slaves behind if you want to advace in multiple skills.

    ReplyDelete
  36. ^
    To above post

    Wealthy perk - It grants ability to live in mansion, not paying rent and granting pretty good minor slave.

    But if you choose on your 1st play to start in other housing you will not get your personal Maid.

    On the other hand when you choose Brothel Mama and start in brothel you will get Miss N
    At least I did every time.

    But when I started in mansion to get Maid and than changed housing I got Miss N as well.

    This should be a little more consistent.

  37. Morrigan code is all over the place. Tons of issues in the text (can see code markers), half of her blowjob tasks do not register as a BJ increase. Also, her Obedience never increases. I used Aeka, Handcuffs, UI Drug (from the shop) and her Ob locked at 118, saw several issues granting a point, but once it hit the cap, it never went up. How do you get the cap to raise? It seems the Master (Ob 190) & love are impossible with her.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. for any slaves that have an obedience cap, you need to use the "spank her" action to raise it by one or two points each time. however, if you ever do it more than twice per night, you do not get the maximum-obedience increase and also get a bunch of other penalties. so if you find a slave has an obedience cap (or know beforehand from things like the wiki) be sure to spank her twice a night until you can max her obedience to whatever your slave-trainer skill allows

      Delete
  38. Mia has no images when you select her. No clothing, no naked, no picture for her at all. I've checked the Slaves folder, the images are there, but they are no properly activating in the game.
    Suggestion: for the slaves with special possible endings (Felicia, Rei, Aeris) that require something happening via a "random" event at X location, change that. The events need to NOT be random. Makes it a pain to know if the event actually works, or if it is broken with it being random. I've run 10 days & maybe 20 re-loads with Aeris for the Forest talk with the Fairie dancer to advance her story. Rei, Demon Corruption, the meeting "Go to the Secure Slave Pens and help Narana free a demon by disctracting the guards" NEVER happens. Same for the event with Felicia.
    If the randomization is removed (or highly increased) we can test to see if this works.
