Old Custom Story [require old game version]

For older custom stories that do not work with the last one to three releases of House Party. Please be very specific as to what versions of the game the story you post will work with. Any posts without documented confirmation of version compatibility or significant user complaints of said story NOT working with the documented game version will be removed.

All other rules and expectations pertaining to the Custom Story Showcase apply. Since this subforum is intended specifically FOR old stories that will likely not work with future House Party client versions, we will not have any auto-pruning of 'old' or 'unviewed' posts, etc. going on.

will authors of custom stories be "re-compiling" their stories for compatibility with 0.8.8 when CSC is released?
Only if they rewritte them using the correct CSC version... :?

Silly question. But I never messed with CSC before.. How do I install it? Do I put it in the mods folder in my documents or...?

"Even Sluttier Party" using 0.8.8 seems to follow the story line correctly but the "embarrassed" posture has got to go! Hoping for a fix.
I know exact changes that need to be added in this mod, to fix this issue. And would be able to do them manually, even without access to CSC.

But I do not want to edit someone else mod, without permission.

Generally speaking, mods made originally for 0.8.3 do not need a lot to be made compatible with 0.8.8:

1) Exhibitionist stat need to be added to characters, with value of 100, if they don't need to be embarrassed naked
2) Roaming command needs to be changed, to use new name

And that's it. Usually the bigger issue are older mods, including those that functioned correctly in 0.8.3.

peter980...Interesting. Care to elaborate? Think a savvy old programmer could do it?

Would be very grateful.

As the guy who actually made that mod I have no problem with you making whatever changes you want. I am trying to remake something similar for this new version but this version is particularly buggy so it may take some time

I was working on modding the original story (doing edit of it directly), as well as looking into converting CSC made stories to readable JSON, that they can be modded by hand.

Let me refresh that knowledge with ESP story, and when I'm able to load ESP story as such, doing those couple of edits should not be a big problem.

I've started making a guide how to convert old 0.8.3 mods to 0.8.8, including conversion from CSC format to readable JSON (so it can be fine tuned by hand)
viewtopic.php?f=9&t=73&p=250#p250

Was able to load ESP story after these changes correctly into the game. 8-)

In addition to these handful of changes that were already called out, any time you're hand-editing a custom story don't forget to ensure that any and all references to StoryName in the files are aligned/an exact match to .story file name and the containing folder for the .story and .character files, and that any references in the files to House Party version are matched to the current game version you're playing.

In short, this kind of thing: http://steamcommunity.com/app/611790/di ... 133182662/

It's done:
viewtopic.php?f=8&t=75&p=275#p275

It will suffice until you make new content version.

To reduce confusion, I've titled the thread: "Even Sluttier Party Re-release".
