Delays, delays

Hi,
things has been rough for me recently. My health has been not great as I have mentioned before. This is limiting my time at work and so I am earning less money. I am finding finances very difficult currently.

All this is just complicating my free time and ability to work a lot on the game. I talked about a 3.3.02 release very soon (like during last week) but so far I have not had the time for final testing and deciding on anything else needed. I hope maybe during this week.

    1. That is not really this game. Try Outland for instance, developed by Daisy_strike who wrote Orihime and Menace and Mugi for the game.

      You can train twins slave (Panty and Stocking) and I was toying with the ideal of male + female Ranma but images are a pain.

    2. Ok, the Daysy's game exist, but SM can evolve, can not? Multiple slaves is a relly very cool idea! Congratulations for the suggestion!

    3. yes! And more quests!

    4. Oh you mean Otherworld that she's doing. I've played that and it's rather fun, but from the looks of things she is updating it to a more interesting version it would seem now.

      Well here's hoping certain things will be fixed and other things improved upon then for 3.3.02 then. Along with your helath of course.

      Delete
    5. Yes I meant Otherworld, sorry a sort of typo

      Delete
    6. I can not download it (Otherworld) because there is a malware on the game page! Anyone knows another site with the latest version?

      Delete
    7. Please contack Daisy_strike if her blog has malware. More likely it is a false positive

      Did you download from her blog

  2. Health comes first; don't stress over this.

    Besides, just about everyone who's been following SM3 for a while knows the next release comes when it comes, and not a moment before.

    Take care.

    ReplyDelete
  3. Even if you haven't been following for a while, you should know that free time can be scarce at times, and that updates come when they come. I honestly only recently found this like 2 weeks ago, but can understand that this isn't a primary concern, as health and money are a bit more important than a hobby. :P

    Also, can't wait for when you finish Red Lily :)

    I also noticed the NaN glitch for Aeris only happens when you have her get naked through the morning/evening preparation. But it'll still increase when you do the appropriate trainings. Not sure if you were aware of that cause for her or not, just thought I'd point that one out.

    Anyways, hope you feel better. ^_^

    1. The NaN issue for Aeris is fixed already.

      Red Lily is developed by a 3rd party Rowadon, so it is basically up to him to get inspiration and enthusiasm to do more work on it

      Delete
    2. Nan is fixed for version 3.3.02, not any current release

      Delete
    3. Speaking of the Red Lily, it just up and disappeared on Me. I'm still running Tabrit under 3.2.06a until she runs out of slaves and retires. Both Snow White and Moka's pic folders are in Images, but neither one shows anything during training. I dropped Rowadon a note on his blog, but he didn't reply. Is he still around? And in that same vein, whatever happened to Palooka?
      Anyhoo, keep your strength up, mind the doctors, and get as much rest and whatnot as you can, dude. You know that we're all pulling for you. :-)

      Can you post your save game from before the end of training. Upload it to a filehost site like rapidshare/mediafire etc

  5. Is there a paypal donate button anywhere? The hard work you've put into the game is certainly worth something to me, if not others.

    1. Thank you, but I do not accept dontations for the game. A lot of the content is unauthorised artwork used without permission so I do not feel it is right to ask money for the game.

      In case anyone else offers say to me personally, not the game, I feel it is basically the same, you know me through the game and would be offering because of the game.

      Delete
    2. Note: it is very, very tempting to accept donations at the time, but won't

      Delete
    3. Yeah but asking donations for this can land you in trouble (like you said, the artwork is used illegally). I doubt it many authors of the artwork used will be happy about a game like this using their work for money lol.

      Delete
    4. Yes, exactly why I said I won't ask

      Delete
    5. Well, there's a path to capitalize on some the work you've done, but it'd take ... more work.

      You can separate the engine from the core game (and the rest), fully document the engine (API or whatever is the equivalent), then ask for donation for the engine and only the engine. SM3, then, would be re-positioned as a freely available demo of what the engine can do. (May also be helpful if you create a new alias just to separate the two works, or hand off the lead of the SM3 to someone else.)

      The engine and the game would have to be packaged separately from then on, of course.

      Not sure if that will net you much $AU, but since you've talked about upgrading to "action script 3"(?) or whatever, might as well take the opportunity to refactor the code?

      Just a thought.

      Delete
  6. you are a noble man cmac, but also a sick one. Take care of yourself, rest get healthy. I have said this before, it is only a game, a good one but still. I look forward to the update, but it can wait.

  7. Health, finances and general well being definitely come before updating the game. It's not like we're paying you to do this. Although we would if we could :)

  8. it seems you need people to beta test new builds that would lessen the work you have to do

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. cmacleod42 probably wants to test specifically the code he added and changed for 3.3.02 and how the rest of the game interact with those changes.

      As he is the only person who knows what changed and the only person with general knowledge of the code, it means that he is the only person who knows what and how to test. If he just toss the code at us, likely we'd bury him in an avalanche of imprecise and inaccurate bug reports with no guarantee to hit all the new/changed code--i.e. slow down things even further.

      For bigger releases, it'd make sense to have beta tests (after testing them himself), but I'm guessing cmacleod42 doesn't think a relatively small update like 3.3.02 needs that.

      Delete
    2. Thanks, there is no need for beta testing for 3.3.02, it is mainly bug fixes and small additions. It is just I have had multiple small changes while developing Ranma and quite a few bug fixes.

      I would like to make sure I have nothing more needed for Ranma before releasing (I think I am there now)

      Delete
    3. CMac,
      I have a few new Ranma pics that you might or might not have. I'll dig them up and send them along if you like. And thanks again for the Holo archive. She's pretty much complete, but I'm still bolting some things together for Nora as an assistant. That, and I still can't code worth @%#$. I gutted a copy of the Akane.xml to use as a template, since Miss N was included for the same reason.

    4. Thanks, feel free to forward the images. There is a high chance I have the images, I have been regularly checking recently for images for Ranma, but I may of missed some.

      Let me know if you need any assistance with Horo, feem free to send me code/beta to check if you want.

      Delete
    5. CMac,

      I only have three to send for now, but I haven't seen them before. I don't know what thread to use at FP. To be honest, I don't know how you, Leeter, and LoveRobin can keep up with the threads. If I miss one day, I'm totally lost. Lol.
      I'll box up the beta for Holo and send it along presently. I'm still working on the Nora angle, but she can be added later along with a few events I'm writing. Is there a list of what the dress stats are and where to assign them? Looking at all those zeroes doen't help Me figure out what goes where. :-(
      I staked out a chunk of the world map to put Vestmark. I posted it on FP, and LR said the location looked okay. Now we just have to figure out where Mioya is so I can set up the trade routes. ;-) If only I could find a spot in Mardukane for the Ilsens that isn't already occupied...

    6. CMac,

      Holo is ready to send. I also remembered a CD of secondary software that I had for My Mac G5. There's a large hentai archive on it. That's why you also have a rather sizable Ranma folder coming as well. ;-) Just let Me know where to send it.

    thank you

    ReplyDelete

    1. There are two ways

      1) using actionscript/swf. Download the SDK and there are example external events inluded like the original Lady Grey event. You can develop using the free FlashDevelop tool

      2) using xml like the catgirls module, furry brothel and the lower level changes like the weapons addons and cryosaurs tweaks (will be included in 3.3.02)

      Basically the same way you develop a slave or assistant for the game.

      Delete
    2. sorry im a nub at this, i know you can use notepad for the xml but what you mean by the sdk?

      thanx and get well soon :)

      Delete
    3. Scroll up to near top of the page, or use the find function to search for "SDK".

      "Software Development Kit" is a commonly used term without a precise definition; usually, it includes documents plus (some to all the) stuff needed to develop for some software/hardware platform.

      Delete
    4. As the previous poster noted, the sdk is in the links area. But note it only documents the actionscript method for developing slaves/assistants/events.
      This menthod is very flexible but requires programming skill, it uses a language quite close to java for programming.

      xml is still poorly documented,I need to spend a lot more time documenting it.

      There are a number of xml slaves and now a couple of xml events that you can check and work out how to develop your own event/slave/assistant

    5. thank you for your reply and found them, currently however it seems the files have been removed so the links no longer work

      fenoxo's game is entirely written by him and uses only code and images he has clear license to use. So he can legally and morally charge/accept donations

    3. well,

      how about "Tips" then?

      Just for your work putting it all together and almost bug "free"

      Delete
    4. SOLUTION;

      "Sell" the source-code of the game, without any pictures relating to it.

      Delete
    5. I was thinking to suggest to you to load a "Donate" button for some time, as 90% of the H games developers has one. So here i am as the argument is open now. Maybe the content of SM3 is made by different people but: - You powered up the basic game;
      - You transformed it into something
      colossal for a hentai game;
      - You always was, are and always be
      the main developer.
      As you've done the main work and had the main idea, you ARE "legally and morally" free to load up that thing. By the way, if you do it, i'll be the first (or the second, max the third ;-D ) to donate. P.S. Take care of yourself before everything else. Regards

      Delete
    6. No, the usage of those pictures probably makes it illegal in most countries, regardless of how much work he put into coding.

      There's a possible legal angle by claiming to be a parody work (with social relevance?), but it's unlikely cmacleod42 can survive financially if any major publisher's lawyers decides to make an example of him, donation or no donation. Not attracting their attention is a wise course of action.

      Wishful thinking won't make SM3 "legal" or shield cmacleod42 from liability, unfortunately.

      As much as I'd like cmacleod42 to be able to take donations, it would require careful planning and calculated risk taking.

      (Also, technically he hasn't "always" been the main developer of SM.)

      * * *

      From what gets sold on DLsite.com, it seems like Japanese publishers have relatively high tolerance of fan work for sale, at least by Japanese amateur ("doujin") groups.

      But, there's no guarantee that their foreign subsidiaries or foreign licensees would be as lenient. Plus, U.S. companies like Disney/Marvel probably would not think too highly of the likes of Harley Quinn (of Batman fame) being used this way.

      Delete
    7. Well thank you for explaining better this stuff. I haven't considered the fact of the "attracting the wrong kind of attentions" on all of it, so i guess you are right. BTW i know he wasn't always the main dev, so lets just say he is one of the major ones. P.S. "U.S. companies like Disney/Marvel probably would not think too highly of the likes of Harley Quinn (of Batman fame) being used this way. " XD lol Ghahaha! that's right!

      Delete
    8. From what I understand the thing that holds cmacleod42 back from donations is not any possible legal issues, it's rather a "moral" issue for him.

    10. this debate is pointless if he choses to accept donations im sure he could find a way to avoid the law as well but the question at this point is dose he want to its all his choice and if he has some moral objection i doubt anything we say here will change his mind

      Delete
    11. Sadly, the corporate lawyers are probably more scary than the law.

      Still, it's worth reasoning with cmacleod42 over this topic a bit longer--he can use the money.

      There shouldn't be anything morally objectionable about making it possible to donate to support of a free-to-use GAME ENGINE, if all game logic and (possibly) infringing material are refactored out and contained in a separate package.

      Delete
    12. Hi all, to clarify
      the main reason I do not want donations is really a moral issue, not legal. A lot of the images after all are of odd copywrite anyway, being often doujin so not necessarily officially approved.

      Still, I feel it would be wrong to take money for so much of other peoples work that I am using without their permission.

      Sure I could separate the game engine and take donations for it. But that is a technicality, people would be donating for the game in general.

      Similarly I have though of asking for donations for upgrading my version of Adobe Flash, but the same applies. A little closer to possible for me, but still a no really.

      Thanks all, but I just can't.

    13. If u realy belive it i will not write anymore, but i realy belive your time have some worth too. Make flash game grafic is only 10% of work and majority of pictures you used are for advertising (+censored) just add soure of pictures in text document will make it legal im me country because this pictures are orginaly used for spreading. All u did was just colect them on one place :-) Im realy moral person meself and see some one work without reward is no fair. (Again sorry from me english.)

    14. Again anonymous with bad english :-) Another tought with your game engine u can make another game based just on fight ( like SM3 fighting events ) Just polish skills of main hero + some story line ( fight every time litl stronger oponent dasnt meter.... ) But it will be your own game and u can colect money from it. Only moment u can break law is (NAME OF GAME)and start colect donations :-)

      Delete
    15. I respectfully disagree, since breaking out the engine would enable others to program hobby SWF games easier, not a merely a technicality.

      That said, your position deserves respect more than anything else.

      Delete
    16. Cmac does not want to take donations. End the conversation there. Respect the wishes of Cmac and stop trying to persuade him to take donations.

      If you can not wait for the next release, download the development kit and make something for the game (like events,slaves,or housing stories) to pass the time or make something for your own use. If you do not know programming, the kit has plenty of examples for a noob to try it out. Picking up something new and having fun with it can pass the time and while you work on it, the next updates or release will be up in no time.

    Exoshare Download link: http://exoshare.com/download.php?uid=RRSHSZYD
    FileRose Mirror Link: http://filerose.com/ed9qvwum7abs/Other_Release.zip

    The new images list.
    Colette Brunel: Chore - Discuss 69 to 72, Sex Act - Fuck 11 to 12.
    Mami Tomoe: Chore - Discuss 39 to 42.
    Marta Lualdi: Chore - Discuss 21 to 25, Sex Act - Fuck 6 to 10.
    Vocaloid Luka: Chore - Discuss 45 to 50, Love Confession images.
    All of Mami images are Halloween themed, since it’s coming pretty soon. Luka got some as well.

    The new assistants
    The last of the Smile Pretty Cures, Cure March and Cure Sunny. They are available from the start, so no Renown requirements.

      There is two possible place the images folder can go. Either in SM3/Images or in SM3/Images/Slaves. So if one slave does not show up, like Ariel or Snow White, her image folder only need to be moved.

      Well, there is the torrent, but it does not contain all the recent updates for the slaves and assistants.

      Delete
    2. since there are so many updates it is very easy to lose track. and i personally prefer torrents since downloadpages all only want you to buy premium...
      does http://slavemaker3.blogspot.com.au/2012/09/slave-maker-3301-bug-fix.html really contaim all the updates up to september 2012?

      Delete
    3. As of that date sort of.

      a) it has all fixes for the core game, but not for all newly released slave/assistants

      b) but I updated the torrents at the same time for all other updates

      So, the bug fix corrected bugs in the core game, and it wou wanted you could download the noted packs and merge into your game for the rest of the fixes

  25. I love this game but I have to say the biggest flaw it has is the number of unfinished slaves. A word of advice, stop padding more slaves till the ones you have are finished. the first like 20-30 you guys started with are awesome and complete, yea there is the sailor scout mission thats kinda started but not finished but its something that the players have to look forward as additional and finished add on. but thats just my opinion.

    1. If you check the Slaves List.html file in the game folder you will see who is credited with the slaves.

      There are quite a few different developers for the various slaves. People develop a slave, a basic 'vanilla' one for a character they like, but adding story/events is a lot more complex, so you ofent just get a basic release and nothing more.

      I have no control over these releases and do not think I should either, people can develop as they like and I'll repost releases and include. I will assist people in improving and fleshing out slaves, but that is up to the developers to decide to do.

      As you may see, I am working to improve Ranma now.

      Delete
    2. Yea a nice update to finished slaves is nice but I have noticed that the main interface is what you all have been trying to revamp. from playing the game on a top of the line $5000+ laptop, from alienware, that the extra slaves is causing a lag in the programming itself. So my advice would be finish the interface, Update ranma and the original slaves if you want, then work on a better way to tie in the extra slaves content where it doesn't stretch the programing code and parameters. I have been off and on again been helping the developers of sim brothel the rebirth and they had a similar issue as well.

      Delete
    3. Also I would love to see the give orders option completed and implemented as well. I feel like it would actually give the game a more "Sim" like feel to it as well.

  26. I don't know if anyone has noticed this, or if has been mentioned before, but the NaN glitch applies to saving/loading, you save then load, click on the planning, and you can do an infinate amount of tasks in a single day. it is a ridiculous glitch, I have tested it a little bit, it seems to screw with your slaves stats for certain slaves, if you save during the NaN. Anyways Private jobs and such dissapear when it happens too

    1. Please take care of your phrasing here. Is it not a 'ridiculous bug' as I do not get the issue and it is not a widely reported issue. I have failed to reproduce the issue just then too. I have had others note issues similar around load/save, but not quite what you report.

      Clearly some flash implementations/versions work somewhat differently than others. With the versions on my system (mostly the current) I get no NaN issues at all. There ia a known and reported one for the special statictistics for some slaves, like Aeris, Kasumi. This bug has been fixed for the pending 3.3.02.

      Delete
    2. As a note, I can fairly routinely reproduce the error: At least for the morning.
      Take 5 "Take a Walk"s and save the game, go to the Planning Screen and load the quick save for that save, while the save is loading the times for the 5 Take a Walks get set to NaN:0Na for a short period of time, if you Click the Leave Button while the times are still NaN:0Na, you'll leave the planning screen and all of the stats will display 0 while retaining the actual values, the clock won't change time, but if you go back to the planning screen it'll be blank and you can now place any of the default SlaveMaker actions, none of the slave's unique actions. And they'll all have time of NaN:0Na.
      Noting that if you delete an action it'll clear all of them, and if you leave the planning screen it'll clear all of the items. Enjoy, this if from SlakeMaker 3.3.01 and Flash 9,0,262,0 (according to the "About Flash Player 9...")

  27. sorry for not mentioning it clearly, when I save, and load a game, loading repeatedly if need be and quickly entering the planning screen, as I have said before, you can use any number of tasks(such as walking or jobs) and infinate amount of times, if you want to. I was just into the game recently so I was wondering if anyone else knew about it, thanks for clearing it up.

      There's apparently a bug with hitting "Plan" quickly after loading a game that results in a mess of NaN, but it's difficult to reproduce for me. (1 in 50 tries or less frequent; running the .exe on WinXP.)

      If you have a sure fire way of hitting it, I'm sure cmacleod42 would be very interested.

      Be as detailed as you can, and let him know if you're using the .exe or the specific browser/Flash player you're running in.

    3. Oh, and he'd probably want to know the version of SM3 you are using; it's listed on the lower left-hand corner when the game first loads. ("This Version:")

      Delete
    4. I may of sorted out this bug (possibly?) I have better disabled some buttons/feature while the game loads so it should be impossibe to go to planning now while the game finishes loading

  29. Can a female slavemaker become pregnant and if so how? And, no, I don't mean by tentacles.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Presumably, it's controlled by the "Using Contraceptives" check box.

      From the Morning/Evening menu, hit "Take Potion", hit "Drinker" button, then select the slave maker. Should in the menu/picture area, on the bottom right.

      Delete
    2. Yes i know about that. no success

      Delete
    3. I think there were some issues with game by having a female SM get pregnant, so they cut it out. In a comment above or a previous posts comments that talked about this and by stating that a female SM could make female slaves pregnant.

      For a spoiler if you have not tried getting the Alena bad end, there is text that the SM had contraceptive magic cast upon them (SM) to keep them from getting pregnant (female SM).

      You could take it at that or dig through comments from the past couple weeks and find the comment talk that concerns this issue.

      Delete
    4. Ugh. What's the point of having contraceptives for female Slavemaker's then? This game would be immensely fun if it wasn't so dang glitchy, and if it wasn't filled with typos and horrible grammar. I guess eventually it will become more streamlined and fine tuned.

      Delete
    5. Originally pregnancy for female/dickgirl slave makers was purely for tentacles. This has expanded when the new pregnancy and contraceptive system, but so far I have not significantly changed the slave maker side.

      slave makers only give birth between slave trainings, not during. It is something I will change given some more free time.

      For the comments about typos/grappmar, feel free to post any corrections. Please remember I use Australian/British english for spelling. ie colour,honour, realise not color, honor, realize etc

  30. Hi, having trouble with Slave Kyo/Kyonko to get Path K's Sister.
    After Helping the Sister, there is no Mysterious Woman at the Court.
    I'm playing Game Version 3.3.0.1 and Slave Version 1.
    Did I missed a update, or is it possible to fake this event?
    I guess I should set one Flag of BitFlag2, but how?
    Meanwhile I learned about the debug Mode (ctrl+shift and click on G from Gold), but
    BitFlag2=0x1110 sets odd flags (Flag0 to true, Flag1 to false ...)
    Could anybody help?

    1. It is an unfinished feature. The developers have been tied up as of late and have not edited a feture in "Attend Court" to accomodate the changes made from the version upgrade.

    2. Thanks, I suspected such a problem.
      Thats why I asked how to set a specified Flag of BitFlag2 in the debugging menue,

  31. When I do 'Intimacy' with loved or bought back slaves, it only uses anal images never anything else. Is this intentional? I've had to decompile the .swf and replace the images to fix it.

    ReplyDelete

    1. Yes this is intentional sort of. Older assistants were only required to supply an anal image so the game uses those by default. More recent ones can use arbitrary images as do xml assistants.

  33. I'm having troubles with my assistants. When I create a new game and then select a assistant to initially buy one, some assistants do not show up when the new game starts and yet I'm still charged for them. Also I can not find the button to make my slaves go out under assistant supervision even when i do have one now that I updated from 3.108 to 3.3

    P.S. Hope you get better soon/ are better.

    1. I am gussing there is something broken in your installation, and you are missing some xml or swf files for the assistants.

      I suggest download the assistant pack and install overtop of your game, this should mostly resolve your issue.


      If the assistant supervision os missing this means something when wrong with the assistant, probably related to the other assistant issues you are having, so should also be fixed by applying the assistant pack

  34. Hey Cmac how are you doing? I have a little question to you: i just can't figure out how a female slave maker can be a tentacle hybrid. Can you throw down some explanation about it, when you have some extra time. As always, thanks in advance.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. A female slave maker cannot currently be a tentac;e hybrid. As of 3.3.01 only male slave makers can. in the coming 3.3.02 dickgirl slavemakers can also be one too.

      So far most of the existing events for tentacle hybrid are rather tentacle cock centric, so does not really work for a female version. Riesz sort of fills that role for a female so something could be expanded and made for her, but that will wait

      Delete
    2. I don't know how the events would carry over but if you start as a male slave maker with tentacle hybrid background then do the farm milking event and choose the answer I have breasts? or w/e it says exactly then you become a woman with the same stuff as your male sm so basically a female tentacle hybrid though I'm not 100% sure this works since ive only done it to become a dickgirl tentacle hybrid.

  35. All is clear now. Thanks again for the fast answer dude.

  36. I have a few technical issues with the game that aren't really bugs but I think should be reported as important.

    A small but very annoying issue first of all, the way money is taken out for schools. I cannot comprehend why it is done on the schedule, but it is very buggy: changing schedule or removing the school actions can freeze the game for incredible amounts of time. There is also a bug where dance school removes 50 gold instead of 25, thus infinitely taking away money if you keep removing the action.

    Then, regarding the management of minor slaves. I really think this should be worked on, especially if it is to be expanded. In particular, selecting slaves for night actions is done very poorly. There is no need to load all slaves every time the user adds or removes one from the list. Trying to add all slaves can take multiple minutes. Everything else about minor slaves also takes much longer than it should.

    Lastly, this is not something I really expect to be fixed, but the memory leaking on this game is quite something. The game can seemingly take infinite amounts of memory with extended use, I have personally seen up to 10 times the starting usage, which amounts to more than 2 gb. Flash is not very good at taking care of that by itself, and although I don't know much about as2, I suspect it is even worse. In any case, it isn't something that should be prioritized unless the code is remade from scratch, but any work on resolving a few memory leaks here and there would certainly be appreciated.

    we only show all slaves if you want to select the participants. How else should I do it to allow you to pick the slaves? You have generic options already like 'a male slave' etc to pick a random slave of the type desired.

    1. (Not the anonymous you were responding to)

      For the list of all (possible) participants: If there's a way to grey out just the selected slave instead of removing a slave every time it's slected and then re-flowing then re-painting all the slaves (tiles?) left, it may possibly speed things up. (Un-selecting would became un-grey out, of course.)

      Delete
    2. Keeping the current way selected slaves are displayed shouldnt be a problem. Moving a slave tile around and updating the display should take no time at all. What's probably slowing things down is if all slaves and images are reloaded at every change, as if you were entering the menu again with new data, instead of only changing the positions of needed tiles.

      The greyed out idea or something similar could possibly work better though.

      Delete
    3. Not a good theory; just now, monitored the disk activity using perfmon while adding 30+ participants to an night action. (Running .exe version) CPU got chewed up (100% utilization), but only minor disk transfer/queue-length during that time.

      This performance issue isn't I/O bound.

    1. See the link to the top right, Latest Game Version. But there is not really a single link, the game is over 3Gb now, so either
      a) a set on torrents to download and then merge (depending on client)
      b) a set of file host links (again to be merged)
      c) direct link that is a folder for all files in the game. Use a website copy program like httrack to copy all the files
