See the first beta release for notes and installation but
- upgrade only, not an independent game
- extract into your existing game folder after making a backup

Previous beta links are deleted and not needed, this beta is a complete version itself, a cumulative beta.

Game Crashes/Hangs
I have a number of reports from players having the game hanging or crashing. There seem to be a few possible workarounds/fixes here

1) The game can hang if
  • You are playing ONLY using the update/beta. It must be applied to a fully functioning game
  • If your game is broken, say the download failed partway or the torrent was not 100% complete
2) A number have reported crashes, but only if you play the game fullscreen, try playing it windowed

3) Some report crashes using the exe version of the game, but no issues when using the swf version, so try using the swf version in your browser of choice

I am investigating these but it is very odd, and might be a bad installation of Adobe Flash on my system after a recent harddrive crash and upgrade to Windows 10

    1. Please explain more, what do you mean

    2. I mean the action buttons and System are gone. I only still have the stat panel ones in the upper right (not including the Planning one.)

      Delete
    3. I guessed that, but when does it happen?

      Delete
    4. Right when I get the notification that they realized they were given drugs. Tried with other slaves too, same result.

      Delete
    5. Ok, I will check, for now avoid giving them lots of drugs until I fix the issue

    6. I have the same problem in Beta 1 -- I gave Ritsuko a single dose of Genan, then 2-3 days later when my assistant notifies me that it wore off there's no way to advance past that screen (outside of activating the debug menu and using DoEvent='9999', I suppose).

    7. The beta is updated and fixes this issue

  2. hi, Great game. Thanks for all the effort. I am having a silly problem updating the game. I have 3.4 version and 2 update rar files(3.401, 3.5) but whenever i try to extract and replace the content of folder 3.4 the game won't even open. help pls. what am i doing wrong here. had to download the entire 6 gb of version 3.4 again because of it.

    1. a video explaining it would be very helpful. thx

      Delete
    2. Did the version 3.4.01 version start correctly?

      When you say it will not open, how are you opening it, running the exe, the swf. If you use the swf then what browser do you use?

      Delete
    3. I have no problem playing the 3.4 version( the one i downloaded directly via torrent). But when I try to unzip and merge files together the problems begin. I use the flash file( on mac) and after the replacing/merging( i have tried both) the update , the flash file won't open (same problem with swf file for which i use the chrome).

      Delete
    4. Sorry, I have no idea at all what is going wrong for you. Do you have a different browser installed, say FireFox or Safari, does it work using that browser?

  3. Have a bugproblem.
    After one day and night of training the "system" button disappears.
    only happens when i choose "guild member".
    "Limit saving" is off.

    1. Does it happen every day? I just tried and no problems for me.

      What slave are you training and what assistant. Also doe you have any abilities like mesmerism etc

    2. Same problem here. Closing and reloading makes no difference. Using the .exe

    3. Still the second anon here. Training Shampoo with assistant Alena.

    4. Please can you post your save game that gets this issue. I do not get the issue ever

      Delete
    5. Also try using the swf version instead of the exe, do you still get the issue?

      Delete
    6. Anon#2: I get the problem with the swf version as well. Interestingly enough the system button comes back after the first contest day, and hasn't disappeared again. I'm assuming you want all the .sol files associated with the save, I zipped them up and I hope file dropper will do. http://www.filedropper.com/slavemaker3save

      Delete
    7. Anon#2: Ok it continues to disappear and reappear seemingly at random. Day 8 evening and day 11 morning it is there but not in between. I'm going to continue testing to see if I can make it stay. Thank you for your attention.

  4. i have the same problem on the first night when i do the evening traning the comand buttons fuse and the clicking sound keeps repeeting it self intel you close the game it happens emedietly if you use the command kiss in hte traning at the evening also guild member

    1. See the below discussion, for some reason the game is crashing for some people

      One possibility is Zaix's Cheat Menu, and otherwise the exe version is worse. Run the swf file via your browser

      Delete
  5. I can't seem to get past the slave selection screen (downloaded the full version from the torrent and then applied the 3.5b2 patch on top). I've tried a few permutations (guy/girl slaver, guild or not, shampoo, ranma, and akane as the choice) and Flash always crashes after I select a slave.

    5. that's happening to me too when I play it in full screen...when is windowed it works fine though

      Delete
    6. i have the exact same thing the swf file is fine but the direct exe file crashes after slave selection every time without fail

      Delete
    7. @Hiory
      Hey! Thanks for the hint about 'Full screen'. It works fine when windowed for me, too. :)

      Delete
    8. It is not really clear to me why this is happening for some players.

      Some people have reported crashes who have Zaix's cheat menu installed. Others only when they use the exe version of the game.

      Disable the cheat menu if you installed it, and try the swf version.

      Delete
    9. I don't have the cheat menu installed, I also have the problem both when using the SWF version and the exe.

      I seem to be missing a lot of pictures as well, there are no visible slavegirls in the screen where I select Shampoo, no picture of the manor and lots of other buildings, no character picture (though i don't know if there usually is one).

      What I've noticed is that the game even freezes earlier, when I choose any Origin from Elven forest down. The cursor still moves, I can change the char name, I can even press the buttons, they just don't react anymore, no matter which one I try.

      Delete
    10. Oh, and it also doesn'T matter whether I use fullscreen or windowed.

      Delete
    11. If you have no other slaves listed then you are just trying to use the update only, and have not applied this to a full previous installation of the game.

      This is an UPDATE only it is not a complete game, you have to have an existing and working version of 3.4 and then apply this to that version

      Delete
    12. "Same here."
      as what? Have you tried the fixed as noted, tried using the swf? Sorry a simple comment like this is not very helpful for me. What OS are you using, what slave did you pick and what assistant.

      Delete
    13. Sorry about the short comment I was just agreeing that it was not working. I got it to work I just did not use full screen until after I picked my assistant. If you want I can post my error logs if that will help you.

  7. New bug in Beta 2:
    Freelancer Herm SM, training Shampoo with Alena as assistant
    I've capped out Shampoo's stats and choose to complete training in the System menu. In the ending screens, the first two screens of text display as normal, but the third screen and following do not have any text and the "Next" button appears to be nonfunctional. My gut feeling is that using the Unusual Cum trait to herm-ify Shampoo (rather than going through the Dickgirl Mother route) may have set flags such that the game doesn't know which ending to pick.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Do you have a save game from before you ended her training? If so please zip and upload it for me to investigate

      Delete
    2. Replied to the Futanari Palace Beta 2 thread with the upload. :)

      Delete
    3. Fixed, it is a bug for Shampoo, below is a link for a fix for her, copy this file into the folder Slaves for your game installation

  9. Was wondering if the quick save and quick load buttons were removed or its an error on my part?...really liked the quick save option

    Replies
    1. They were removed deliberately as part of the screen re-design

      You can use the shortcut keys Ctrl + S, Ctrl + L and the function keys and Ctrl + Function keys

      BUT
      quite a few have questioned this so I am re-add them somewhere

  14. Guys what about retraing slaves ? This could be add

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. You can train your minor slaves, but that is not retraining as such.

      If you enable sandbox mode in options you can retrain slaves.

      Otherwise not particularly appropriate for Guildmembers (or Freelancers who sell their slave) as another now owns the slave

      Delete
    2. I mean retrain slaves that you have. For example i train Shampoo and own her so should be able to train her again later.

  15. There is this mayor bug since ancient time which i told you about before once but i'll post it here again.

  16. since two days i get message "Adobe Flash Player 9.0 r262 doesn´t work anymore", so i can noch play the Game... someone have the same issue or a solution to the problem? i tried another full game on other partition but the same problem

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. As the above discussion for games crashing etc, do not use the exe version until I resolve, instead open the SlaveMaker3.swf file in your browser. Others also advise not playing in fullscreen but I believe that is via the exe version too.

  17. found a couple of bugs:
    1- motoko bad end activate with bad events turned off in the options
    2-some assistants ( at least hild and roshi) image sometimes cover the partner selction screen
    3 i can't become noble by selling akane(and possibly felicia & motoko too) to the lord. works fine with dragonballs event from bulma

    1. 1. Almost certainly a bug for Motoko

      2. Are you using this beta 2 version? I had an issue for beta 1 but fixed it.

      3. fixed

      Delete
    2. yes, i'm using beta 2, but i have applied over beta 1, don't know if that is the issue

      Delete
    3. No, if you applied then it should not be an issue.

      Any pattern to when it happens?

      Delete
    4. the only patterns i noticed are that apparently it doesn't happen with the exe,only with the swf(tested with opera & firefox) and the more minor slave the more is likely to happen. with roshi as an assistant + initial slaves it does appear by flicking to much with the buttons(clear,remove) but not in a consistem way

  19. On mac do not know how to extract into a folder and overwrite. When I do it a new slavemaker folder is made inside the original file. Tried copying contents over and overwriting but got the image and slave missing problems listed above.
    Guess I might not be able to help on beta's

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Do you have an existing game installation?

      If so
      a) extract the downloaded rar file, if needed create a new folder and extrac into it
      b) locate in the extracted the folder containing
      SlaveMaker3.swf
      c) copy all files and folder in that folder into your game installation, into the same folder that contains SlaveMaker3.swf

      Otherwise, please wait for the full release of version 3.5

      Delete
    2. Got it to work. I finally recalled what I had to do a few years ago to update. On a mac if you copy files and folders over the new folders totally replace the old folders deleting them. So very carefully you have to take each file and sub file and copy the contents to the new file in a way that replaces old files not put a new one in with the old. After two failed tries got it to work seemingly well by downloading a fresh torrent copy of the base game.
      I probably should look up if there a Mac command to leave contents of old folders alone except for duplicate files and then ask if replace.

      Delete
    3. You should just be able to use the commandline cp to copy the files and folders

      Delete
  20. So... using the brand new update '3.5 Beta 2', that I applied on top of the FULL(most of optional stuff included) '3.4' version, and I'm playing in ''kinda fullscreen''(manually clicking to make it fullscreen, so that I can still see the Windows(7 - SP1, 64bits) toolbar-thing at the bottom).

    Right... The problem is that the 'System' button, in the lower-right corner, keeps randomly disappearing, and only reappears if I close the game(only way to load) or sometimes after passing/playing a period of time(Day/Night).
    This is quite irritating, to put it mildly.

    1. I meant it is to do with the system I am creating it on and how these bugs have started since I upgraded. I agree it has nothing to do with the systems you are playing on, but the system I am creating it on.

  25. Hi, thanks for all your great work on the game. Was wondering if this update fixes the bug with Bulma that prevents you from getting all the dragonballs.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I do not know, this beta does not update Bulma, and I am not aware of a bug in the game itself that is related to this.

      I suggest visiting he development thread for Bulma at the Futuanari Palace and check if there has been an update, I believe there has

      Otherwise it will be included in the full release of 3.5 once beta testing is complete.

  26. I have 3.4.02, is it OK to overwrite it with this update?

  27. My setup (with third party slave packs) runs fine with Beta 2 on Windows 10 with Flash Player 9.0.262. My only issue is that sometimes the "next/system" style buttons disappear and the system tab sometimes disappears (when they clearly should not).. About 40% of the time I'm able to bring them back by going into debug mode, and clicking on People/Place or Slaves (in debug). Otherwise I have to exit and start again from my most recent save.

    I think this game is amazing. How do I donate to your work-load? (I know it has copyright material so I can't pay you for that). Thank you. A lot.

    1. Can you give me an example of a situation where the button has disappeared, what training or event happened?

  29. Minor bug :
    Training Shampoo. If I 'Talk to (minor) slaves', and then go 'Intimate / Fuck', her club skill sometimes just vanish and never come back... forcing me to load an earlier save.
    The 'space' is still there, but it goes ''empty'', with skills still above and under that blank space.
