Happy New Year

Hi All,
I am back from my holidays, and a happy new year to you all.

Sorry I have not had a chance to review comments in the last post much or check forum posts.
Please give me a few days, and I will reply. For the comments here in this blog I will either reply to the comment or I will make a new post addressing any issues.

I had a good holiday, but did not get as much done for the game as I hoped, I suppose it was a good holiday!

I did do a long delayed restructure of my slaves to derive them from the SlaveModule class and this found quite a lot of minor bugs. I have also done some of the abandoned slaves (or at least where the developer is no longer working on them and has said so), like Peach, Menace, assistant Mugi and a few more. Again quite a few minor bugs found.

Note: the bugs are found as the class structure is much more strict and reports typos like variable name/function typos, missing _root and the such better. In the next release of the SDK Akane will be updated for this method. It requires a little more code, notably for images (ie you need to use BaseMovie.xxxclip, not just xxxclip). Mind you I shoud rename BaseMovie to a better naming, at least baseMovie, maybe moveBase, but I need to retain the old name, it is used too much internally by the game.

For Mugi I will also extend her in future to support the later slaves since she her last release by Daisy_strike. If anyone is interested in helping or even doing the bulk of the work please contact me. The source code for Mugi was made open source by Daisy_strike and I can share my updates.

I only did a little work on Ranma, as I had less free time than I hoped, so her/his update will still be a couple of weeks away.

  1. WB Cmac. Happy to hear you had a good holiday. Hope your health is also good. I am afraid that you will find many bug reports filed in your absence. Please take your time, and do not tire yourself.
    You may want to think of a way to tweak the new slave order system. Having slaves lose refinement, inteligence, conversation and charisma in order to keep you house clean, safe and fed is fine. But not providing a method to restore same seems a bit shortsighted, in my opinion. As it is I find paying the penalty is preferable to destroying slave stats.

  3. Cmac,

    What is your favorite slave and why, if you could share the info?

    1. I am very fond of Ranma, the anime was one of the earliest I knew was an anime as such. Also it was really fun. I have enjoyed rewriting her recently, though I might be getting too ambitious. Still the whole boy/girl gender shift I find very appealing.

      I really like Belldandy, Ah My Goddess is also an old favourite. Reisz I also enjoyed making, although I am not familiar with the game she is from.

      Delete
    2. Reisz is from the game Seiken Densetsu 3, but I believe you already knew that since it is in the slave credits.

      I figured that there might have been some fascination with Ranma 1/2 as there are, at least, five characters from the anime/manga in the game.

      Personally, I think that as long as you enjoy what you do with the slave then everyone will as well. Let your ambition soar and create the best Ranma you can. Thanks for replying to my post.

  4. firstly, great revision you have done here to slave maker. i remember back when i played the first slave maker. that was back when you were just starting v3.0 i must say though, 3 gb is quite a lot. any possible way i can get this on a disc? lol no but seriously good job with it. The slave maker website is a bit outdated though. im actually still on 3.3.1. I do have a question, in the slave packs, assistant and minor slave packs, do we have to have every single slave/assistant for them to work properly? i wanted jut a few from each slave pack, would that work though?

    1. Thanks. You do not need every slave, assistant, minor slave for the game to work. You can download a single pack if desired and you can remove undesirable slaves.

      See the file Slave List.html
      it lists all slaves and their numbers. To remove
      a) delete the file for the slave in the Slaves folder, including the SlaveGirlxx.txt file that matches the number for the slave
      b) delete the Images/Slaves folder for the slave if it is present

      Similarly for assistants, but yo also have to edit the Assistantx.txt files.

      Delete
    2. Thanks. and im guessing its the same for the minor slaves? which im going to go ahead and just download the full packs for the minor slaves and assistants.

      One other question, im using utorrent and i can choose which files i want to download, so deselecting the slaves i dont want and their corresponding files would work right? instead of downloading the full 400 mb slave pack files. lol im using the internet on limited data.

      Delete
    3. yes, you can deslect files as needed with your torrent client.

      Minor slaves are a bit more complex to skip due to the need to edit xml files but it can be done, but probably not worth the effort

      Delete
    4. Thanks. Will stick with downloading the full minor slave file then. It's only 200 something megabytes. Not too much a big deal. Again, thanks for answering all asked questions.

  5. Hello. Love the game, have been playing for a while.

    I'm having a bug that has stopped my progress, though. I'm training Ino and through the Uninhibitory drug and other bonuses and stuff I got Ino's obedience to 43 on the first day. The problem is that I can't seem to get her fight event to trigger, possibly because her obedience never got stuck at 25. But now it's stuck at 43, and won't go any higher.

    Is there some way that I can force the event where Ino fights me to trigger? I tried micromanaging her Obedience to exactly 25 but it didn't seem to work, and in any case is quite difficult!

  7. matsumoto keeps spending your personal cash even when she is not the slave being trained and this only occurs during and after she is trained, thank god i save it in different folders, try to avoid matsumoto until its fixed unless you like having 300 cash spent every other day

    1. That sound like a bug that was with the catgirl module and the coregame. It was corrected in the 3.3.03b fix, see my last post

  8. Hi and hope you enjoyed the holidays.

    Ever since I made the first upgraded 3.3.01 to 3.3.02 (still persists on 3.3.03b) I had a problem with the option of picking specific people for sex acts, which all get reduced to the player character, assistant, random male (if available) and random female (if available), leaving out the possibility of picking specific owned slaves that don't work as assistants (minor slaves as well) to do the sexual act with the slave in training.

    I went as far as deleting the original upgraded install and replace it with a fresh full download of 3.3.03a (with the 3.3.03b extra files), and start a new save file (moving the old one to file 2), but problem was still present (even tried running it on Linux, and it happens there as well).

    Hope this feedback helps in getting the problem fixed.

    1. This was reported prior to 3.3.03b, and I had corrected this. I'll re-check

  9. can someone link a wikipedia of this game or a walkthrough or something cause i keep fucking something up and simple don't know what :S

    ReplyDelete
  10. There's a very nice advert-free wiki at http://www.otakubell.com/smw/index.php/Version3#Slave_Maker_3 - beware that info for version 2 & 3 is there, you need version 3 (probably...)

  11. i think i found a bug? whenever i try to get any of the ponygirl endings, they never seem to occur despite meeting the requirements? is there something i am missing?

  12. Hello, I have two issues when training the slave Haruka.

    1) The first issue relates to when you go to the tailor shop. When buying her a dress I find just a blank box where the name for the dress should be, excluding maid outfit and ect. I can still buy them, it just looks rather ugly.

    2) When I start training the slave her nymphomonia is at a stat level of 50 and lust is at 30. On the wiki and the XML doc this should be 0 and 5 respecitivly. Also, I can not decrease nymphomonia below 50. I have tried working as an Acolyte, taking Theology Lessons, and using Soothing Drafts.

    This is my first time trying to train this slave. I don't know if this is just a bug or a problem that the developer left. If the developer Naruto XD is still working on his/her slaves, then the first issue can be disregarded.

  13. Hello, I have a small, radical idea related to the Dark Magic event and the slave Imari. Since the both of these come from the same Eroge/H-anime, I was thinking of having the event and slave merge together. This is only up to the respected developers Fluitj and Demercel if they want to do this.

    The reason why I am thinking this is because the event seems to have some problems in it and with a co-development there would be a faster release for bugs/updates. The problems I encounter are from the Seaki route of the event. Since both developers are doing Bible Black based stuff they could make both better as a team.

    Like I said this is only up to the respected developers. I would request if Demercel, Fluitj, or some developer who frequents these posts sees this could they try to negotiate or ask them if they could think about this idea.

    1. I would be surprised if Demercel were able to help with the Dark Magic Event. Imari is a plain vanilla xml slave and The Event is written in actionscript.

    2. Finally, there was a response.
