Slave Maker 3.5 Beta 4


I plan this to be the last beta for the 3.5 release. I have fixed a lot of the reported issues but some have been difficult to track down so far, I should have the last ones fixed in the actual release.

This fixes
  • crashes for .exe version of the game
  • Problems for custom talk to slaves and custom slave orders
  • problems with not working
  • Puppy girl training level could reset to 0
  • Brothel Madam and Wealthy packages did not get access to their houses
  • When a slave becomes ill resting was limited. Fixed
  • Problems changing assistants when training Belldandy. Also fixed her intro screens for widescreen and to be translatable
  • Yurika problems with a range of potions
  • Akane issues for some endgame issues
  • issue with wrong slave details for hints etc after talk to slaves at times
  • a couple of missing images for events
  • owned slaves being used as an assistant charging you
  • plus a range of additional fixed issues

Changes
  • Some images altered to use widescreen versions (fortune teller, some backgrounds)
  • event locating the Faeries Ring re-coded in xml to expose it for other cities and hopefully resolve some problems
  • event meeting Mistress Epona re-coded to expose for other cities
  • option added to make door opening quiet for house exploration (function parameter or xml quiet='true')
  • exe version has a custom icon

Note:
this is a full update, you do not require the previous betas but you do need a full installation of the game to use it.

Note on exe version:

the exe version in this uses the ActiveX version of the Flash Player and you maybe asked to install an updated version of it or the version for Internet Explorer. If you are asked either install the ActiveX version of the Flash Player or do not use the exe version and just use the swf version.

Quick Fix

Here is a quick fix for the beta to address issues for skills and Mistress Epona and some changes to Apron events, and fix a broken image

    1. The game is close 5Gb now and I get a lot of downloads for the game, thus I am using torrects and filehosts for the releases, but if you are willing then sure I am happy to use another mirror for it. I will probably not do an upgrade version for this 3.5 release, I am undecided if I will though

      Delete
    2. Which full version should I host for you?

      Delete
    3. It would be best now to wait for me to fully release version 3.5 and I will share a torrent of it (which can update version 3.4 with small renames of a folder). Or download the filehost version I will eventually post (takes a while with my ADSL bandwidth). Then please host that new version.

    7. i had a glitch in the previous version about training akane, that lead to minor slave cora (who was trained and kept) replacing akane as an assistant, this update has fixed this and seperated the two, however cora has been renamed as akane... its a bit odd

    8. Hope to see slavemaker on Kimochi myself! Been hoping you'd use their services for a while, and so far (not to promote or anything) my own game has really become easier to manage with Kimochi ^^ Hope it helps you as much as it did me!

  2. The Mansion no longer reverts to Abandoned Keep and is fine when I start a playthrough with it, but when I load a save it vanishes and the house simply becomes 'Name:'. Facilities such as the Kitchen and the background art for the house disappear also. Is anyone else having this issue?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I just started a new game and picked the Mansion and immediately saved the game and the exited the game and reran and loaded. No problems

      Tried loading another game and then loading the above save for the Mansion and again no problems.

      If this happens everytime for you save can you please zip all files for the save and post to a filehost of your choice like MEGA, Google Drive etc and give me a link. See the Save Games.txt file in the game folder for locating your save games.

      Delete
    2. Thanks for such a quick reply, Cmac :] Hmm, so it's just on my end. This issue happens every time with every combination of slaver/assistant/slave that I've tried. Anyway, here are my files from the save I'm trying to play: https://mega.nz/#!tkF02YTK!EY0i8QQaujPq7U8dKdbI-whdv0ROgGiLDffc_LO2GMA

      Delete
    3. Your zip file of your save does not include the file
      sm1cities.sol
      Is that file in the save game folder? If you are running the beta version it should be impossible for this file to not be present.

      Maybe you should check the storage limits for Flash Player and set them to unlimited. The exe version does not allow this anymore unfortunately. You can open the game using a browser, right click on the window and select "Settings" and change the Local Storage settings

      Delete
    4. If you do have the file please post it by the way.

      Also I am adding a button to the load/save screen to open the local storage settings for the exe version

      Delete
    5. That file was not in the folder when I looked, but I went back and saved the game again and it appeared. Here is the folder; I think all files are present now: https://mega.nz/#!dskgALqC!R-IJb7EvYTCIksSwgrK57eWj826C3a4HegWSdNrXvJE

      I'm running the .exe version so maybe that's my problem, though I have nothing else stored up there at the moment. Good to know you're adding a button in future! I have been using the .exe version, so maybe it is a problem with Local Storage.

      Delete
    6. I just tried out the browser version and it works perfectly! It didn't even occur to me to run it that way. I think I'll just switch to playing this way, as it must be a issue on my end and not with SM. Thank you so much for the help, Cmac :]

      You could do it yourself.
      Firstly, this:
      http://www.macromedia.com/support/documentation/en/flashplayer/help/settings_manager03.html
      , hit Edit Locations specify the folder where SM has a subfolder (in my case "F:\Games\Flash").
      Next, click the second picture tab (it looks like a globe with a folder with a down arrow) and specify how much space you want to give Flash. I gave it 10MB just to be safe. Now close the page. There is no "Apply Settings" button; it's done automagically.
      In case saving still fails, try again. If it still won't, restart your computer. It should throw up a small flash box the next time you try to save, so just hit allow (1MB is plenty of space for an SM save anyhow).

      Delete
  3. Something bizarre seems to be occurring.
    I open the .exe file to test it out and it pops up a warning box:
    "This program requires a newer version of the Adobe Flash Playe for Internet Explorer.
    Update now?"
    What's odd is that a long time ago I deleted Internet Explorer. And am now using a FF derivative called WaterFox.
    Why is it telling me to download an updated version of something for something I don't have, or want?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. The exe version is a wrapper I believe that uses the ActiveX control to run the game. It is a 3rd party program I cannot afford to upgrade Flash to fix better. Either please install as it asks or use the swf version as before.

      Delete
    2. Okay, thanks.
      By clicking the button it brings you to Adobe's autodetect page.
      I had to dig through and find their labs page so I could download a version that ha the ActiveX plugin.
      Works now, thank you ^^

  4. Just started the newest version and have found a couple of bugs;my slave maker's tiredness never drops below 43 even after resting for 3 days and night's straight;the description when you hover the mouse over cock size still say's clit size and the salon and court picture's and contest picture's are only on half of the window.These are all I have found so far,and I will continue to test for anything else.Thank you by the way for the newest beta and I hope you are doing better this week in terms of health.

      Started a new game and started training Shampoo.
      It seems when i let her rest under personal supervision only her tiredness drops (day and nighttime). However if i let her rest under assistant supervision then the slavemakers tiredness drops, too (choosing rest for daytime for slavemaker of course).
      Therefor i think only the personal supervision rest does not reduce the slavemaker tiredness (intended?).
      For the slavemakers cock size it seems to display the slaves clit size in the mouseover.

    1. Char Creation:
      -Secret Old faith, Witch and Expert Traders cannot be selected regardless of Origin.

      -Waepon Master the Whip and Unarmed skills level normally, the the others are unaffected by practice. Totally unskilled weapons that the Lorg shows to train you level normally.

      Game Play:
      - 3 different masters, probably 20+ encounters with Ponygirl at docks, Mistress Epona never shows
      - Visiting Singer, Catslave training stalled at 0.9

      - Repeated visits to Lady Farun never had Cat gear become available to purchase. Asked about Exotics, Court, everything.

      - Miss N's party, after one of my trainers worked a Puppy slave, every Cat Slave L50 party visit she was walked as a Puppy NOT catslave. Skill stalled

      Delete
    2. Secret Old Faith is only available if you select "Old Gods" before hitting the "Advanced" button.
      Witch is available through "Old Faith Stronghold", expert trader is enabled by default, and experienced trader can be yours if you select True Catgirl Tribe Origin AND Expert Trader skill.

      I tried out the weapon skill using a sword. As I had Weapon Master, it started at 10. The first class showed no increase, but every subsequent class did.

      I honestly think skill and item events have had the frequency nerfed. For example, I was search the lake for half an hour to get the apron. I can only assume Mistress Epona is there, just buried under other events, like the apron.

      Don't know about the singer/catgirl trainer bug as I haven't done it yet, due a blank skill panel.
      Likewise with the Cat Stuff from Lady Farun. I just gave up and picked "All cat items for all slaves" during creation. 40 points is expensive, but it seems like the only way for now.

      Can't say anything about the party, sorry.

    3. Ah! The Old Gods makes perfect sense, it just wasn't listed as a restriction.

      Most of the issues went away when I deleted all my old files and did a fresh install and beta update. Haven't tested Weapon Master, but Catgirl and Lesbian trainers now progressed normally.

      Still cannot meet Mistress Epona, I get an encounter and get the bite gag, but that's it.
      Can 'Ino' not receive the Maid Apron? Three encounters where it was listed as given in the text, but it never showed in the equipment.

      In 3.4 Astrid's showed as a map Loc after randomly finding it in the forest, now you have to meet the Centaur Girl? Found the hut randomly many times before I found the Centaur.
      As well, I got obsessive and tried to get Ami to find the Furry Brothel, hit the Forest 204 times after I started counting and never found it. LOL, maybe it is blocked to her?

    1. This is a beta version of 3.5, it includes all featured of 3.5. As noted IT IS NOT a complete game and you must apply it over an existing installation of 3.4.

      If you can only see Shampoo then you are only using the 3.4 beta files and nothing else, or the 3.4 install is broken!

  10. Might be a Slave Pack issue more than game related.

    Was training Holo, when she refused the XXX competition her sneering image filled the games screen area preventing seeing the Do Not Compete or other buttons. The picture could be clicked through to the competitions behind it.

    This might be related to the Slave Market issue I had earlier. Everything else working fine so far, 9 slaves into a campaign so far.
    The 3.4 version had a memory leak like issue for me after 3-4 hours play, no such issues with 3.5 at all, even after a 9 hour session yesterday. Bravo!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I am not sure what you mean here, do you mean you want some of the images in the game to be animated, or do you want to add images for a weapon?

      Animations must be swf animations, animated gif/avi etc are not supported but there are ample tools to convert around.

      Delete
    2. I would like to make an animated image with a sword to attack, I saw that used some chaos Nodati The event, which sets the animation. And I would like to see the animation of the impact was spectacular. Quite do .gif format, convert .swf, that everything works?

      Delete
    3. P.S.
      I apologize in advance, I use a translator

      Delete
    4. Currently the attack animations used in the game are fixed, and cannot be changed by yourself.

      They currently just show an image after a brief pause and auto hide the image after a brief time. Same applied for cases where you are hit.

      It is possible to added more complex animations there, but it is not easy in the current game structure for combat.

      There is an xml system currently in place that shows text when you hit, mostly unused currently, so it might be easy to do, but again it could be hard

      You can create the animation (animated gif or anything is fine) but I cannot say how long it would take for me to integrate it into the game.

  15. Accepted Deala as a slave from the Ruins encounter. A lng time later I was clearing house and sold Deala for the offered -0.33GP.
    Ever since the sale I get pulled into the Sell A Slave screen during each days plan. Even if Slave Auction isn't a selected task on the plan.
    The first few times it happens I just decline to sell a slave and get back to the main screen. A few repeated plans later, when I declined to sell, there was no Leave button or Home tab. I had no apparent way to get back into the game. Restored from an old save and tried the sale of Deala again with the same issue reoccurring.

  16. I downloaded the game again on my mac computer. i followed the install instructions in the readme in order to get the game running. After I started it up, everything was working fine except trying to use the original city mardukane caused a fatal error. Whenever I tried to talk in the city, there were no locations to click on and additionally no way to exit (no save, load, etc). Therefore I could only reset the game. When I went to the other city Dunmyre I could see the locations, but for some reason non of the events were varied. I got the same two events in each location, for example, I couldn't even see astrid. Additionally, non of the farm events worked. Did I install something, or am I missing files?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Did you download the full version 3.4.01 and apply the beta to it? The beta is not a complete game.

      Dunmyre is not a completely functional city yet, a range of events, including Astrid are not implemented there, with the intention of adding specific versions of the events for the city, not just relocating the events.

      Otherwise, also please try just opening the swf file in your browser of choice, not using the .app and see if the game works there

      Delete
    2. Thanks for the quick reply. I did download the 5.7 gig file from kimochi.

      I am having this issue. If I just use the 3.4 then I can play the game just fine without any real issues, but I can't play the game with the new content. If I try applying the update by copying and pasting (replace) then I get a bunch of blank images. For instance I can't see the Master on the character stats screen, I can't see slaves, etc. It's as if I just downloaded the beta. If I copy and paste (merge) then I can play the game in Dunmyre, but I can't play in mardukane. Additionally, in Dunmyre the events repeat. I don't know how to fix that.

      Any suggestions?

      Delete
    3. Most likely this is an issue for the way you are applying the beta version. I have had people have similar issues in the past on Mac OS X where unzipping and moving foolders did not work correctly or they replaced and did not merge the folders

      Did you try just using the swf file as I suggested. Does it get the same errors?

  20. I wonder if Aeris is still working properly. I can't seem to get the 2nd step of her fairy queen endings to show. The dancing fairy never gives the invite for the nightly talk. It might be related to the changes you made to the fairy ring, as having it equipped is a prerequisite for it to show.

    I used lilymon for my current save game and thus also the fairy ring she comes with. I still need to try if the message shows up if you get the ring in the campaign itself.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. The changes I did for the fairy ring are not likely as they just affect the event where you get it, nothing else. Possibly it is an issue for lillymon but I am not familiar enough with this event chain to know otherwise. I will check sometime after I get 3.5 released

  21. cmacleod42, Why not have your game on patreon? Perhaps monetary support you receive will more actively engaged in the development of the game. And the development of the game will turn into full-scale operation . Perhaps even allow you to hire a staff that will positively impact on the game.

    1. Among other reasons:

      Because soliciting payment in respect of a project which is basically one gigantic ball of copyright (and probably trademark) violation is an incredibly bad idea, especially when it involves things like "bondage porn of Disney princesses", so cmac would basically have to throw away all the slaves, get new art for all the semi-original characters, etc.

      (Also, having "develops a bondage porn video game for money" on your CV shuts an awful lot of doors career-wise.)

      Delete
    2. Yes that is basically it, I think it is unethical to accept any form of payment or donations for the game.

      The CV not so much of an issue as I am already a professional developer and have enough to write on it otherwise.

    3. It might be an issue on my end, but the kimochi download wouldn't play nice with 7zip and gave an invalid archive error.

    4. Tried the wiki site?

      http://www.otakubell.com/smw/index.php/Downloading_Slavemaker#02-nov-2014_Slave_Maker_3.4.01

      The 3.5 patch is just a patch on the existing files, it needs 3.4 first.

    1. By "Custom Slaves", what precisely do you mean?
      Slaves not made by Cmac? Or slaves with custom stats and events?
      Both are already incorporated into the full game. From what I hear, there is still some slave development going on over at Futanari Palace.
      .... Mods? In a Flash game? Well... there are some values you can edit yourself with a plain text editor. For anything deeper, I think your best bet will be a program called .minerva.

  29. Is there planned to be an update to the final version of 3.5 anytime soon? or is bug fixing and development going to continue for a while longer?

    1. It'll be ready when it's ready. He's already said that he's going to try to have it ready by the end of the month at the latest.
      Be patient. There are still some bugs in the 3.5 Update, but he's said that the last of these should be fixed in the next full release.
