Sorry for not posting or replying in a bit. I have been a bit ill for the last week and a bit depressed.

For those after a working download for the game, I am aiming for a new release in the next week or so, once I complete testing. Mainly this version will have bug fixes and some small new features, nothing too signifiant.

I'll try to repost the 3rd party release I have not reposted over the next few days, notably
  • Slave Usagi (Sailor Moon)
  • Slave Flannery from Pokemon (somewhat incomplete)
  • update for Sophitia
  • Slave Youmou from Touhou
  • multiple updates by M.I.A
 A beta version of Holo/Horo from Spice and Wolf is available in the Futanari Palace forums, but only available on request.

Note: the futanari palace forum has been a bit flakey recently, been slow and getting 503 errors. The issues come and go, hopefully will be fixed soon.

  1. Any chance for Holo to be in an update when the beta is finished?

    1. A vanilla one is ready, with no custom events, but any release is up to SimounRules

    2. Is it an actual one, and not the oen where she transforms into a wolf and eats you? I remember that troll release a while back. So it's an actualy vannilla one right?

      Yes, it is an vanilla slave. I remember the 'joke' release by Daisy Strike, too.

  2. that depends on the 3rd party contributor. I doubt that Cmac has any influence on it.

  6. Great to hear from you again Cmac hope to see you well soon.
    Sad to hear that you feel down but always remember:
    Life is like a merry go round.
    Sometimes it's up. Sometimes it's down
    Relax, spend some quality time with friends and indulge yourself a little.
    We will be still here later, patiently waiting.
    So no pressure, take one step at a time.
    Its only fun for us, if it is fun for you.

  7. Any chance you can reupload the link to the torrent of the latest (full installation) version, because SOMEONE decided it was a great idea to report the dl link to mediafire, so now that's gone, and there's no way, and I mean No Way, that I'm downloading 10 parts to a game when torrents are available.

  9. I don't know if this is the right place to ask this but when I try to start a new game there are no pictures in the window for the Slave maker. Its blank and when I try to select a girl from the list to train nothing happens. Is this a bug or do I have a bad download? Lol sorry if this is a nub question.

      Might be bad download as I don't have the problem. But I am no expert.

    2. Probably you have just downloaded an update, sat 3.3.03b, not the full version of the game

      Delete
    3. I had an older version of the game. Don't really know which one and when I tried updating it I had the problem. If my internet was better I would just go and download the entire thing lol.

      Delete
    4. My suggestion is: Wait like ten second before clicking on New Game. That's because the game is full of things that must be loaded. If you click too fast, it won't load everything.

      Delete
    5. Found out my Appearances folder was organized wrong. I got it right and then had to go re-organize the Assistants folder. Now the game works fine. Thanks anyways doods.

  10. Hey cmac,

    I hope you feel better soon! Perhaps some encourgment would help with the depression.

    You are doing a great job with the game and everything. I am amazed at the depth of the game and how new things keep showing up as I try different things. The game is throughly enjoyable and I enjoying playing it very much. Hard to stop playing!

    I know you like to develop alone, but if you need help testing I would be happy to help.

  11. Hey dude, we all go through stuff man some worse than others but you got to find a way. It's usually tough though. I watch anime to help me out, one piece and stuff.

  12. Noticed an old bug popping up again. When you load a saved game, the slave's measurements reset to some generic default. Not sure about the slave maker but the slave you're currently training resets to 90-54-85 no matter what changes have been made. Same with clit/cock size.

    1. Usagi is an XML slave, there is no SWF file. Ensure the image folder and the line in the XML both point to the same place.

      Or wait for 3.3.04

    2. i found the problem in the xml. nymphomania didn't match for start and end and the discussion < was place before the 1 so it didn't work

  21. How do you "revolt" against Scarlet when Meiling giving you information about her when in the Acolyte? It says gather your friends and let me and the slave go to the market(What market?) the first thing in the morning. I am curious about this ^^ Sorry if this maybe is a little spoiler. That's why I kept the slaves name a secret.

    1. I do not really want to discuss these things in public really. This is the sort of thing for family and friends, but I do not really talk over with them, I am a fairly private person.

      Thanks anyway.

  24. Google otakubell is a great idea when otakubell works, but either they are down and have been for a week or better, they are blocking me, or my ISP is blocking them. I'd suspect the first or last myself since I've done nothing but browse the pages and don't assume the site is run by a child who would block for no reason.

    Cached page through a Google advanced search seems to work fine for the moment but it's not going to be as current so I hope it gets fixed soon.

    Replies
    1. There's actually a link to the wiki at the top of the page & it is up at the moment. The wikiadmin has been known to block ISPs before - specifically Hughes - but you should see a message from him if that's the case and he's true to form. In regards to your original question - how would you usually tell your assistant and slave what to do? You may find an option that looks helpful (especially if you consider Mistress Scarlet to be a demon...) (the market refers to a generic market in town and NOT to the slave market)

      Delete
    2. I'm not the one who asked the question above about Scarlet, but thanks for the answers anyway. Both of them ;)

      I've for a couple of years used wiki's at otakubell for lovers w pk and others without a problem but over the last week, maybe two, I can't connect but maybe once or twice a week and just for hours at a timewhen I do get lucky. No message, it just hangs on "Connecting to..." but never progresses past that until it times out with a "The connection to the server was reset while the page was loading" error.

      Delete
    3. M.I.A. (Maia Iliana Arina)March 10, 2013 at 10:22 AM

      I did have some connection/access problems for the wiki in the past, but not since the admin have changed the servers. However, now no one can make new accounts, since the ‘database error’ problem with the new Account Approval system is not solved yet. That measure was made to counter spam/bots accounts.

  25. I love this game! Beautiful use of free public images. wonderful theme in general and specific catagories. The story telling for each image just fits the context wonderfully. Keep up the great work!

    1. Thanks!

      Not all images a free public use, one rason I do not charge for the game. I will remove any such images if requested. I have only so far been asked once to do so, and once to give credit.

      Delete
    2. Congrats on your willingness to repsect copyright. I know first hand it can be crushing to have your work pulled because the owner of some file does not like your use.

      I also love this game, maybe too much.

  30. Hm dont know how to put this...
    Your game is the best thing i ever seen.
    But its unplayable. Sort of "for evaluation purposes only".
    You need to straighten up! Clean up all the excessive BS. Make a clearly defined "timeline". (connect all those loose ends)
    P.s. If u want more tips msg me

    1. Best thing you've ever seen, and unplayable? That's an odd combination ;)

      It's plenty playable, it's been through at least a couple of authors and several generations from the old Slave Maker 1 through the current one. Full campaigns or sandbox, either one works just fine.

      The only real complaints I'd have are more nit picky stuff. Such as the wandering trader steals an hour from your day every time you see him and no matter if you buy or not, shouldn't that at least be just for if you stop and shop rather than every time he passes by? It's starting to get to where I hate the sight of the guy. I kinda wish the game was better documented, the Wiki contents organized for download as either HTML or PDF to use locally when the wiki isn't working. But in all it's fine and is plenty playable.

      Delete
    2. Hi,
      in what way is the game unplayable?

      There are cetainly events and backgrounds that are incomplete, but nothing that prevents you playing the game.

      Delete
    3. Unplayable? I think not. Can you compleat every event for every slave? No. There was a bug introduced with the last upgrade that prevents this, and I am sure it will be fixed in the next upgrade. That being said there are roughly 50 slaves that this does not effect. If 50 are not enough and it makes the game "unplayable" for you, I am at a loss for words.

      Delete
    4. something missing from the game because it is showing some of the flaws that had already been fixed and when I give the full day without actions to rest both the slave and the SiGe slm slm but exhausted as zip files delete previous versions DOWNLOAD A and B and full pack but previous failures to show them though perhaps my full pack failures which brings luck and replenish you soon CMAC.

    5. It´s only fun to read the stories once.
      So for the first time i train a slave, its GR8, but there is a whole lot of content that is not slave related, the general content. The first time i played it, AWESOME. But then it just gets boring. To put this clear, i find it hard to jerk off to.
      You play it like a 3 hour hentai. Then its over, almost no replayability.
      The events are recurring, theres a whole bunch of useless clicks to go through, just to reach a few new pics.
      See its great if you play it for the first time, then its just crap.
      Or well its not crap, dont get me wrong, but i rather watch some hentai or another game or whatever.

      The reason for this is, it has not alot of "game" character. See, what is the gold for ? It´s practically useless, its not nearly balanced. The whole economy is ARBITARY.

      You should somehow limit the events to a straighter, clearer line. (especially LESS clicking"
      And rework the whole economy system.
      (Cheap slaves, Expensive Slaves, Buy LOW sell HIGH, expensive equipment, HIGH upkeep, Cheap whoreholes)

      Try to make it playable as a simple! management sim.

      Would love to see that :)

    6. in short terms, it has no replayability.

  32. Hey, uh, Cmac, I hate asking this here, but I don't know where to go to ask, so I'll ask it here I guess...

    Since it seems your doing a pretty big overhaul, do you think you could do two things, if it isn't an issue?

    Add more stuff for Lady Grey (So when she wins it isn't always "Pop my back pimples." (Well, more like wash me, but still.) Perhaps a possible relationship with her?

    And could you add Saber from Fate/Stay Night as a Sword version of Lady Grey? I'd be willing to write the Saber ones, if you were willing to add them in.
