A review (kind of) and bug report for 0.15.5

A review (kind of) and bug report for 0.15.5

Post by masterspanker » Tue Nov 05, 2019 6:29 pm

Hello,

I came back to this game after a long break and holy crap I really am impressed with some of the improvements. But I was a bit disappointed because I expected Vicky's content in the original story to be complete by now. (Which is the most important content for me) While the features that was announced with 0.16.x is nice, it isn't what I wanted.

Some of the new lines added sounds bad. It is like they do not even belong to the the same person. (even though it is obvious that they are) They have incredibly high background noise and some of them sound like they have a higher or lower pitch.

I had not noticed this before, but it appears all of the girls have exact the same body (with small changes to their boob size.) And they have exact the same sex animations. I kind of expected better especially from Vicky. She is a professional after all.

Vicky's content is still exclusive with Rachel and compubrah VR will still not offer anyone else other than Patrick depending on the circumstances (your choices), which makes it really useless. Mostly because I haven't been able to find out how it scans people, even though I slept with half of the party goers. It still offers only Patrick.

No matter where you used it, VR puts you behind some bushes and there is a chance you will get stuck there, unable to move. It happened to be and I forgot to save my game for an hour or so. It was painful.

There is a path you can take which completely breaks Madison's prank quest, even before you start it. I played it twice and I could not find what caused it the second time, so there is that.

After finding out how you can invite her to the party, Lety appears right in front of the front door, but unlike Lety, Vicky appears far left corner of the map instead of the front door. Also there is a chance she will get stuck there. (When she gets stuck, she makes it impossible to continue the quest)

Sometimes when you invite a character to sleep with them, they will not like the spot (because there are people around) and they will walk away instead of fallowing you. When that happens, you will be unable to talk to them, because they will keep repeating the line "there are people around" or something like that. And because they will not fallow you, you will not be able to sleep with them, or initiate any conversation with them. This happened with Stephanie. Now I am unable to even talk with her.



This is all I can think right now. Maybe I will add to it when I have the time.

Actually Patrick and up to 3 girls are available there.

So I have heard, but I have no idea which 3 girls those might be.

I am sure one of them is Rachael, but like I've said, depending on how you unlock the compubrah you might not get her at all.

I am pretty sure other two doesn't include Vickie, Ashley, Stephanie, Katherine or Madison. (Because unless it is a bug, I have tried all of them and none of them worked on my last playtrough.)

Even if you unlock Patrick, you will get Rachael option. You just need to select Patrick and refuse. It will not be the same as full Rachael experience, but that is on you, due to way you solved Patrick/Rachael spat.

Other two are Leah and Lety, and you need to progress through their quests to get them available.

Hey, thanks for the feedback! We may take a pass at audio processing again later on, prior to leaving Early Access. As for the body shapes and intimacy positions, from a technical perspective it's just easier for us to work with similarly sized characters and a limited number of intimacy positions. We're going to finish Vickie's story as one of the final content updates before we start working on the female playthrough.

Can you provide any more details on the other bugs you reported? Any debug logs, etc.?

Dear erasmus, I just wrote two pages worth of stuff and because this site automatically logged me off after.. what? 10 seconds, it was all gone when I pressed submit. ALL GONE. This isn't even the first time this happened. Why does it log users out so fast? For what possible reason? Please tell whomever is in charge of the forums design that I think really nasty stuff about them right now. I simply do not have the energy to write all that bug related stuff again.

I understand where you are coming from. I really do. Faster the game reaches to a more finished state the better. But there must be a way to do this without making things too difficult on you.

Only reason I can think of why you couldn't have more body types is because of the animations. But in most games where you can actually change the height, weight and body shape of the characters, every character still use exact the same set of animations. So it must be possible somehow. Some slight variations between characters could make them feel a lot more human like without breaking anything.

Also, at least Vickie should have a unique animation given her profession. I hope you get what I mean.

I can hardly wait. Please make it fun. Vickie's story is one of the biggest reasons why I bought the game.

Sadly I didn't save any debug logs. Next time I will do that for sure.

I tried to give all the information I have on these bugs when I first tried to reply to you, but I do not have the energy to write it all over again.

One thing I will point out, I think the down stairs bathroom might be the cause for some of the bugs. If you try to initiate something with someone while being locked there will teleport you out of the bathroom. (at least when you try to change positions) VR bug also happened in the same way. Right before Vickie tested me again, I was locked in the bathroom and I was trying to raise my stamina, I tried to use VR and seeing how my only option was Patrick, I backed out. I found myself behind some bushes, I was able to move the camera, but all I could see was some bushes and I was unable to move. I could still hear the other party goers.
