Hi, I am still working on bug fixes for the game, version 3.3.02, should have a release in a few days. This will include
  • bug fixes of course, including the Slave Maker avatar issues, NaN values for specil stats
  • Fixes for Hild and the Slums rape event, so she intervenes more reliably, especially if your slave maker intervenes
  • New event for Hild for Tentacle Hybrid slave makers
  • Dickgirl slavemakers can be Tentacle Hybrid's. Some time I will also enable for female, but a bit more complex
  • Slave Makers Assistants (ie hired assistants) can no longer have their contraceptives altered. They are independent people and choose this themselves. You will have to woo them.
  • Tentacle and non-tentacle pregnancies separately counted
  • assorted tweaks to love, pregnancy, background images. It was a pain to find a clean image of a sports shed/gym storeroom, but I finally found one.
I am still mainly working on upgrades for Ranma, last night I did some image edits for a new set of events when lending to Miss N.


These are just head-paste or combination type edits. The eyes are a bit exaggerated on the first, but otherwise I am quite happy with it. The second is a combination of images by KJ and Takeshi Taya, it was a bit awkward to mesh the art, but the image for Nabiki was the only colour image of her wearing sporting gear I could find.

Measurements
Also, recently a poster in my comments talked about making a python program to create realistic measurements for the game. If you are still around, how is it going?

Update: they have more or less abandoned the work. If anyone else is interested in providing a system or set of measurements I would welcome any help here, thanks.


M.I.A Update
A mini update for the Minor Slaves.

It adds the following images:
Nadia Fortune. Chore - Discuss 16-18, Love Confession images and Sex Act – Fuck 4.
Parasoul. Chore – Discuss 21-24 and Love Confession images.
Tana. Chore – Discuss 21-24.
Tanith and Sigrun. Chore – Discuss 9-12.
I had also made some typos fix in Ruto’s Slave Market text and removed the blank line in the introduction text for Allura.

  1. Measurement tool: Semi abandoned. Sorry, suddenly had new job lead--due to start in days in an unfamiliar field using a very un-Python like language which I don't know well. lulz. If the first project is as easy as I was told to believe, may be able to find time after I get orientated at work.

    3. Hi, I just did some research for ideal weight and found these formulaes

      J. D. Robinson Formula (1983)

      52 kg + 1.9 kg per inch over 5 feet (man)
      49 kg + 1.7 kg per inch over 5 feet (woman)

      D. R. Miller Formula (1983)

      56.2 kg + 1.41 kg per inch over 5 feet (man)
      53.1 kg + 1.36 kg per inch over 5 feet (woman)

      G. J. Hamwi Formula (1964)

      48.0 kg + 2.7 kg per inch over 5 feet (man)
      45.5 kg + 2.2 kg per inch over 5 feet (woman)

      B. J. Devine Formula (1974)

      50.0 + 2.3 kg per inch over 5 feet (man)
      45.5 + 2.3 kg per inch over 5 feet (woman)

      And wrote this code

      function calcWeightMale(tall:Number) : Number
      {
      var TotalInches:Number = tall / 2.54;
      var inchesover5:Number = 60 - TotalInches;

      if (TotalInches >= 60) return 50 + (inchesover5 * 2.3);
      return 35 + (1.1 * inches);
      }
      function calcWeightFemale(tall:Number) : Number
      {
      var TotalInches:Number = tall / 2.54;
      var inchesover5:Number = 60 - TotalInches;

      if (TotalInches >= 60) return 45.5 + (inchesover5 * 2.3);
      return 33 + (1.1 * inches);
      }

    4. Anyone know any tables etc to figure out average bust/wast/hips measurements or cheat/waist/hips given a height/weight?

      Delete
    5. Note: I deliberately used an older of the formulaes (1974)

      Delete
    6. Can't give you a way to get from [height, weight], since I approached it from [height, body_type]. You already have weight, so I won't explain how I got weight.

      I start with WaistHeight ratio data:


      # WaistHeight ratio (for women)
      # This is the 'ideal' for low mortality rate.
      # from: http://www.buzzle.com/articles/body-measurement-chart-for-women.html
      WHtR = 0.395

      # Creatively fudged data to relate WHtR to frame (small, medium, large)
      # i.e. pulled out of thin air. (For women)
      WHtRsmall = 0.380
      WHtRmedium = 0.395
      WHtRlarge = 0.410

      Delete
    7. Next, generate waist (ignore any line with WeightRangeFromHeight(...)[...]):

      # Weight and Waist
      if inFrame == "small":
      weight = WeightRangeFromHeight(cm2in(inHeightCM))[0]
      waist = inHeightCM * WHtRsmall
      elif inFrame == "medium":
      weight = ((WeightRangeFromHeight(cm2in(inHeightCM))[0] +
      WeightRangeFromHeight(cm2in(inHeightCM))[1]) / 2)
      waist = inHeightCM * WHtRmedium
      elif inFrame == "large":
      weight = WeightRangeFromHeight(cm2in(inHeightCM))[1]
      waist = inHeightCM * WHtRheight
      else:
      print('Unexpected input, [', inFrame, '], received for frame type')

      Delete
    8. (above is an [if ... elif ...elif ... else] statement. elif is "else if")

      Next, get the hip:

      # WaistHip ratios
      # Inspired by Wikipedia; All numbers are for women.
      # http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Waist%E2%80%93hip_ratio
      WHRidealGenerous = 0.65 # Very curvy figure
      WHRidealFull = 0.70 # Curvy, and most attractive to most males
      WHRidealModest = 0.75 # Slender/modest

      # Generate Hip measurement
      if inProportion == "modest":
      hip = waist / WHRidealModest
      elif inProportion == "full":
      hip = waist / WHRidealFull
      elif inProportion == "generous":
      hip = waist / WHRidealGenerous



      Delete
    9. Finally for the bust measurements, just mirror the hip measurements.

      In the real world, beautiful, fit women (sans augmentation) tend to have slightly smaller busts than hips, though I don't know the exact proportion. Can probably fudge that with a 98% ratio if you really want to.

      Anyway, tool generated numbers are supposed to be used only as suggestions and sanity checks.

      * * *

      Height is in cm, and proportion could be "modest", "full", "generous". (Frame was only used to generate weight, but it was 0/1/2 for small/medium/large.)

  2. Now that you mentioned Hild events, how about other demonic origins or inhuman ancestry and Urd (have you seen full demon Urd chapter, the star on her forehead just like Hild)?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I mainly added the Tentacle Hybrid bit for Hild as I was fixing the rape events and was also correcting the contrqceptive system. I though of an interesting way for Hild to encourage the corruption of your slave maker.

      I agree that Hild should be involved more in the other paths and will work on that when exapanding those backgrounds.

      But as noted I am mainly working on Ranma, with various core game changes as I find needed to help or improve Ranma. The Hild changes were more just a side/fun change for me.

      Delete
    2. I see, guess I got hyped since you mentioned her just after a post concerning Urd. Specially if you recall:

  6. Speaking of measurements, it'd be kind of cool to choose what cup your breasts were if you're female or hermaphrodite -- or at least be able to choose more than three sizes.

    Maybe it's just me, but I go with 'small,' because it's the closest to what I truly want -- flat. Of course, this is just a minor qualm, so if it's too much to try and implement, don't worry about it.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. It is a little complex, maily because there are multiple systems to measure cup size around the world

      Delete
    2. Ah. In that case, could you add a 'flat' choice, then? I don't know why, but I just like flat chests.

  7. I'm just a normal peon who likes the game who came up with ideas for later updates like "3.5" or "4.0" and wonder:

    1) Since there seem to be progress with tentacle events, like the "Tentacle Hybrid," I was wondering if there could be some event where the Slave Maker encounters a tentacle conspiracy for a tentacle-hybrid female who is created to mate with males or herm. to bring a new race of tentacle creatures to populate Miyoa and the SM could intervene with or side with them.
    This came to mind by training Aeris and Riesz, mainly the Aeris tentacle story and the backstory of Riesz about the dick girl when she was a captive of tentacles, and among other text with the SM tentacle specials.
    2) Like the Lamia girl, I was wondering if in future updates if someone could think up ideas for slaves like the slime-girl in the port or even a Scllya girl or other tentacle based monster girl of sorts to train or minor story to go along with in the game like there was with Arak.
    3) While training Yureka and the following Astrid event, I was wondering if in future slaves if this could follow up where you could turn Astrid into your personal servent or possibly marry her. I was just mainly wondering if Astrid would be expanded in some sort.

    I like the game and am just wanting to see if these ideas would peak the interest of anyone if they would like to take up these ideas for their own and know it might be difficult due to lack of good images or images at all.

    There is also one thing I am curious about. When getting the slave Arak you see these bells aroud her picture. Is this a representation of marriage to a slave or something else?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Thanks for the suggestions, the Yurika one has been suggested before and will be implemented when I improve on her as I am doing for Ranma now.

      For Arak, if you remember from the text, the elf tell you that you would be taking Arak as your mate, so yes this mean you basically married her.

      Delete
    2. In later updates would this be implimented in for the slaves you buy back and marry.

      And thank you for your reply.

      Delete
    3. You do not marry the slaves you buy back in the game. I do plan to add a marriage system for slaves, npcs, it is just not in place yet

    5. What is the eta on the update. It sounds really good.

    6. If your talking to me (Regigigas), the update for DMG will take a while. I am trying to add in a battle to it irst to where the SM has her use some 'combat spells' to tire out the Goo-Girl/Slime-Girl. If successful the SM can have her use a brain washing spell on it, and make it the SM's slave.

      There is already a Harpy available in DMG's training, and besides the Goo-Girl/Slime-Girl, there are 18 other monster girls planned (10 of which are a large variety of 'Dragon Girls')

    7. Regi,

      I know that your slaves have a slant towards Yu-Gi-Oh, but Might I also suggest the blob girl from Dragon Half? ;-)
      Mint would be fun to try to write up as well, due to her being a human/dragon hybrid. :-)

    8. Thanks. It sounds really good.

      So a Harpy, Slime/Goo-girl, a Yuki-Onna, 10 variety of Dragon-girls, and many more...Not only that but in future updates/slaves the three sisters of DMG.

      Delete
    9. Actually most slaves I am working on are from Sailor Moon. I released Ami (Sailor Mercury) almost a year ago, and me, Poketeers, and Time Wizard, all have formed a group and released Makoto (Sailor Jupiter) a few weeks ago, and we are soon going to release Usagi (Sailor Moon).

      Anyway all of the monster girls are bassed on Yu-Gi-Oh. Just the Dragon Girls, and the Harpy are. Most of the other ones are done similer to the Lamia slave, with pics from differant sources. But there is an image of the main look of the Goo-Girl/Slime-Girl on the wiki.

      It will be quite a while to get them all added. So far the monster girls are planned to be: Harpy (already included), Goo Girl, Yuki-Onna, Minotaur, Oni, Gargoyal, Bee Girl, Anubis, Kitsune, and 10 dragon girls.

      I did have a spider girl planned but am replacing it due to the Arak that has been released. I am considering either a Scorpion Girl, Lizard Girl, or Mummy Girl to replace it. But there are just a lot of other possible ones. I might also replace the Bee Girl too, but am not yet sure if I will or not.

      Delete

    7. I don't think cmacleod42 will run out of ideas any time soon. Heck, maybe he needs to forget some of them to free up more capacity to think about how to implement the features he's already working on.

      After upgrading to 3.3.01, the issues I was having with Shampoo seem to have cleared up. But when I installed the minor slaves pack and followed the prompts, Narry was gone! :-( Her folder was there, but all I saw in the auction was an empty space. The text showed up when I moused over it, but nothing worked. As to moving slave folders around, how do we know which ones need to be?

      She only appears if you have dickgirls enabled. Please check that the option has not reset for some reason.

    1. From what I can understand is that DMG will receive her spells in the next update or so. I don't think the Lady Grey event went any further for text, just to add images and some text for the choices you make when you beat her (personally would like to see what the sister could do in future events). The akane 'hammer' think...no clue, possibly a bug.

      That's all as a fellow player can come up with, that and reading the wiki and comments here.

  17. While training Shampoo, she acquired Naru's Naked 'dress'. However, when I change her into the naked dress, the game thinks she dresses like a catgirl. I get the catgirl text and she will not wear the naked dress. This also locked me into the menu (leave button dissappeared).

    After buying the catgirl dress, this problem continued, except that selecting the catgirl dress allowed me out of the menu.

    After buying the cat tail and ears, I managed to get her naked, without problem (select naked once, get catgirl, select naked again). However, when selecting another dress, she switches to cattail and ears (she accepted catgirl after all). They can then be removed.

    Ranma suffers the same problem.

    V3.3.01

    Also have event resetting problems. (Lady grey reset once (10 slaves and counting), Lia the furry keeps happening, red lilly events at palace)

      Delete
    2. thanks torrnts didn't work they were sepreate files

      Delete
    3. why not, just download all the torrents into the same folder

      Delete
    4. Some torrent clients (like mine) separates the torrents into subdirectories upon download. (I.e. if I download to .../slavemaker/ it creates .../slavemaker/basic pack/ and saves the files there.) I guess there is an option to disable this but I can't find it.

      Follow up question: If you have the torrents and then update the game to a newer version wouldn't the client recognize that the files have changed and thus invalidate those files for sharing? Or what if I just want to change the base fertility? Or run non-core add-ons?

      I don't know since I keep my torrent files and the game I'm running separate in part due to the concerns stated previously.

    5. You can always leave the torrent downloaded folder alone, but make a copy to somewhere else on the hard drive. There, you can combine slave/assistant packs and modify files as you like.

      1) Azeureus supports downloading torrents into the same folder and works fine with this. But I do understand people do not like to change clients so just a suggestion

      2) Yes if you have edits an xml or other file then the torrent will update it to the standard version
      It will not delete files so in a lot of cases on-core add-ons will be unaffected.

      But to preserve these you basically just need to preserve the configuration files befire upgreading, just copy
      configuration*.xml from your game to another folder and then upgrade.

      Copy back, but be-aware some upgrades change these. For instance 3.3.02 will update configuration.xml. In that case you will have to re-apply any changes to the xml file.

      The change for default fertility is not really needed anymore as we now have the contraceptive system in place and it defaults to 30%

      Delete
    7. Yes, I am aware of some updates overwriting certain files. I do have a backup of my own version of the config file just in chase and I'm always on the look out to make sure nothing that I have customized gets over written without me knowing.

      But do the updates not alter the some of the base files as well? How does your client handle different torrent files overwriting each other? (As would be the chase if I downloaded the basic pack and the 3301 update via torrent into the same folder?) Or what if I just downloaded the packed version from a direct download provider and applied it over my game which I am also sharing with my torrent client? Are the changes to the .exe/.swf so minor that the client do not detect them and over writes it as you state it would do with .xml/other text based files?


      As stated previously I am not having any problems with the game in it self (since I keep my shared files and the game I play separate), I'm just curious and trying to fill a gap in my knowledge of how these things are supposed to work and hopefully in the progress addressing concerns someone might have.

    8. If you seed say the basic and 3301 there would not be an issue as the basic pack has the same files as 3301.

      If you download different packs then files are not in common and would all download/upload fine and separately

      Torrents use a hashing systems that can detect the smallest change to an file type so it is not really possible for the clients to get confused. Well it is theoretically possible, by realistically impossible. Torrect clients do not really distinguish between file types so no issue for exe or swf or xml etc

      Delete
    9. Thank you for taking time to answer my technical questions. I think most of my concerns regarding the use of torrents to seed a game in use has been addressed. For now at least. =)

  22. Hey I can't find answer anywhere. I have a problem with Ruins Quest. I've done it once. But When i tried to make it with another slave, Lady Farun said something that I already owe her a favour. I don't know how to pay the favour and i can't complete the quest. I downloaded the latest version and played from clear saves so it's no save compatibilyty issue I think.

    Any suggestions please?

    1. did you try talking to lady farun?

    2. If you are trying to do the Ruins Quest a second time for the same Slave Maker, I don't think that will work (never tried it personally, read in a previous post that someone tried).

      Try getting the nympth tears and giving them to Lady Farun or meeting the NPC who gives them to you to do the task.

      Delete
    3. The quest only happens once now, after all how many times can you rescue the same person? So logically it should only be once, so I changed the game

  23. Is someone trying to make a SM wiki on wikia? I know there is one for otakubell but, when google-ing I came onto a wikia SM wiki that was under construction that included events and the like.

      I've found it. So far it only got the main page and some Changelogs for the game older versions.

      http://slavemaker.wikia.com/wiki/Slavemaker_Wiki

      Hovewer, to be honest, what is the point to make another wiki with the same infos as Otakubell?

      Delete
    2. I have not heard that someone was, but if they want to they are welcome, but I agree with M.I.A, just improve the otakubell one

      Delete
    3. The point is to bring eyeball traffic to Wikia so they make money from all the advertisements that squeeze useful info about the game into a grotesque, malformed layout.

      Until the no-ad wiki goes down, anyway--at which time, Wikia will be heralded as the savior of all SM players.

      So, yeah, keep stuff on Otakubell, and butter up the dude who's footing the bill for it.

  24. Only started playing this game recently, and I must say it's fairly well done; if a little buggy.
    I'm having a lot of problems with images not showing although most of those have already been pointed out. There are some bugs I would like to address though...

    Other daily/morning events have a bad habit of jumping in and over-riding the birthing event, it seems there's no hierarchical order or something for the birthing events so it happens at the same time.

    Sumus' Skill statistic shows in the main text box when you cursor over it. This over-rides the event text that just showed, and if you haven't read it you can't get it back.

    Allowing lesbians to like futnari girls in the options seems a bit off and on... there are times they complain about their partner being a futanari, even if the option is on. If this is programmed to be that way, GREAT! But the option might need a bit of wording to say it's not always the case.

    Is it just me, or does Cora often confuse pregnancy as weight gain? Sometimes she misses it all together. I don't necessarily mind this, and I do understand this is a fantasy set game where medicine isn't all flash (although body altering medicine is...), but a lot of times she seems very unprofessional when it comes to diagnosing pregnancy.

    When will the "give orders" option be done for the secondary slaves? I'd like a bit more interaction with them. Oh wait, that's a personal request, not a bug....


    Moving on, if you're having problems with image sourcing and editing, send some my way. I'm really good at vector tracing, and while it does take a bit longer to do, I've been able to trace over some nice but too small omake squigle drawings from a few artists, clean them up with proper lines and make them into wallpapers. I figure I can do the same for this game too. Let me know if you're interested.

    1. "Sumus' Skill statistic shows in the main text box when you cursor over it. This over-rides the event text that just showed, and if you haven't read it you can't get it back.'

      Which slave? Do you mean Samus? If so this is a bug for Samus not the game itself.

      "Is it just me, or does Cora often confuse pregnancy as weight gain?"
      initially Cora reports pregnancies as weigh gain, there is no relisable pregnancy test in the game. After a while she will report them as pregnant.

      Delete
    2. Samus' special stat's tip text isn't the only one that. And, yes, it's very annoying, but not sure if cmacleod42 can do anything about them if he didn't write them. (Samus uses an .swf file, so possibly protected from modification?)

      From the Slaves.xml file, it seems like Cora would only report it's a pregnancy when it's "pregnancygestation-current='3+'" That probably means 3 days? (For comparison, at '20+', she'd only notice weight gain.) If you don't like that, you can probably change the text of immediately following the tag.

      Delete
    3. I notice it generally goes "gaining weight, take care of her diet" which gets me because you can't. Then she mentions that the girl is "defiantly pregnant" and then "will give birth in the next few days". At least the replies have cleared up some confusion on my part. Thanks!

      Another question now, are children going to have an impact on the game, or are they just wall decorations? I'm not sure how to implement it, but slaves with children should/might become harder to train or have some of their time allocated to raising the children and have increased tiredness from said care/raising, but I've yet to see such behavior in the game. Not important, but would be nice. A choice to help the slave care/raise the child to increase joy, sensibility and lowering tiredness (plus a greater boost to love, so far the only way to raise a minor slave's love is more grindy than a Korean jrpg). Of course, tentacle babies not included.

  25. Feature request: an option to reset the game on loading saved game. When loading a saved game while playing Kallen Stadtfeld (and possibly a few others), certain pictures can be left in the picture box, which then stay there until the program is closed and relaunched.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Which images for Kallen fail to be hidden? This is a bug for Kallen not the game in general

      Delete
    2. "Bondage Outfit" (as selected from Equipment menu), for example. If load a saved game while that's displayed, it stays.

      There are many others; does the debug menu specify the name of the image that's currently being displayed? If you really want a list, it'd be helpful if I can be more specific than "one of them sex picts."

      And, yes, figured it was not a game engine defect, but it's not the only slave that's bugged, so wanted a general workaround. (Really, a very low priority request--if there's already a way to reset the game w/out shutting it down and relaunch or clear out the picture display area, I'll take that.)

      Delete
    3. Please let me know other affected images, I do not see this issue when generally using her.

      What other slaves do you see a similar issue for?

      Delete
    4. Ok,
      I think I have found the cause of these issues. It is a bug in Kallen, but I can also fix it in the core game.

      Still, please let me know any other slaves you see this issue for

      Delete
    5. Ohhhh. Thank you!

      I'll try to find the others--just can't recall the names at the moment.

  26. Just out of curisoity did you know that there is no pic shown for Reimu as an assistant at all. Also, when I try to talk to her I end up getting her intro pic, but I can still talk with her or be intamate with her. Although the immages that are from her .swf or something like that tend to stick around at times.

  27. I don't know what happened. But Alena, who'd already had a child. Suddenly had 2 more. I'd switched out assistants making that impossible. Unless she was sleeping around.

    1. There was a bug in version 3.3.0 which ignored the use contraceptives setting, but was fixed in 3.3.1. If you have that set and still knocking up Alena, make sure you're running 3.3.1.

  28. I have been having issues where saves become corrupted and I get NaN values. In my case it seems like virus scanner (AVG for me). When I added the location of the .sol files and the locating of the executables to the exceptions the problem went away. Might want to try it if you're having this issue and see if it solves it.

    1. Which values get NaN?

      There is a known and fixed bug for the custom statistaics for slaves like Ranma's feminitity, Kasumis martial arts, Aeris's Fairy magic etc

      Otherwise save coruptions are most likely caused by restrictions on flash local storage. Please see the comments in my last post for issue and fixs I posted.

      Especially Chrome seems to have issues and can require a reinstall of it's flash plugin

      Delete
    2. In my case (literally) all fields were returning NaN with the next day event being end of training regardless if where I was in the training time frame (would also lose slaves). I would get a slave or two in before this would happen. Delete the .sol files and try again only to have the issue occur again. I did read the other posts about flash and did follow the advice (such as dedicated HD space etc.. but I was already set to unlimited) and I use the supplied .exe file, not a browser to run the game. Ever Since adding Slave maker to my Exceptions in AntiVirus problems went away so my issue may have been unique

      Delete
    3. Did AVG log any event regarding SlaveMaker or Flash?

      Seen fairly frequent NaN's in 3.3.0, which are much rarer in 3.3.01, but no AVG on this computer. The only way to trigger it in 3.3.01 seems to be load save file and hit "Plan" button fast, and it's not very easily reproducible. (Small timing window.) Think I was hitting that problem quite frequently in 3.3.0 because the loading was much slower (because the save files were much bigger?).

      May not be a bad idea if cmacleod42 just disable most inputs (except close application, resize, max/min window) while loading saves, if that's not too much trouble.
