0.15.4 Story and Language Hot Fixes- Updated 10/15

For discussing anything about House Party that is not a bug, telling us what you want to see in the official Eek! stories or what extra features the game might need, or for asking questions about how to avoid Frank the Eternal Avenger, Lord of a Thousand Fists, First of His Name, King of the Assholes, and Tamer of Flasks.

Story Hot Fixes Pushed 10/10/19:
Restart your game client to download these from our server. If you are a Steam user and are unable to connect to our server, you will need to wait for us to upload these as Steam assets:

In the Original Story:

-Fixed an issue that could cause Leah's content to break if you did "Just in the Kick of Time" (Leah and Lety's "talk") first
-Amy's "Stub Toe" event with Stephanie will no longer trigger during many combat-heavy sections of Leah's content, and while it was already checking to see if the Player was in combat, will now no longer fire if the Player is about to be attacked by an NPC
-Rachael's confrontation with Patrick will no longer trigger during many combat-heavy sections of Leah's content, and while it was already checking to see if the Player was in combat, will now no longer fire if the Player is about to be attacked by an NPC
-Fixed a missing value in Stephanie's Value List
-The Player can now unlock Leah's VR reward if they have fully completed her content, have the Open Briefcase in their inventory, and THEN engage in any sort of intimacy...Compubrah can get data this way, for sure

Story Hot Fixes Pushed 10/11/19

Restart the Application to Download Story Updates from the Main Menu. If you are unable to connect to our server for any reason, you will have to wait for a Steam client update to get updated Story assets:

In the Original Story:

-Fixed another issue that could cause Leah to walk to Lety to start their "Just in the Kick of Time" conversation, even if the Player was just starting the Spare Room search stage of the 0.15.4 content
-Fixed an issue that would prevent Katherine from opening the downstairs bathroom door herself, if it was locked, in the event that Frank was not available to help her. She's too crafty to be stopped by a door!
-Cleaned up some redundant/confusing values associated with Stephanie's "Meltdown" opportunity
-The Player will no longer be able to simply walk up to Stephanie and complete "Meltdown" if they got the Gut Grip but not a bottle of water
-Fixed a few VA-Dialogue text mismatches for Frank and Leah
-Frank will be slightly less likely to fall off the roof prematurely when Leah confronts him during one of the "Good" finales to the "Broken Code" opportunity
-Leah should more reliably point to the places the Player should look during the Garage Search stage of "Snake in the Grass"
-Fixed an issue with Loaded Games (specifically those made prior to 0.15.4) that would allow various versions of the Snake to be visible when they should not have been
-Fixed an issue with Loaded Games (specifically those made prior to 0.15.4) that would result in Frank being literally an indestructible killing machine that no skills, blood sacrifice, or thrown vibratrons could ever hope to topple

Story Hot Fixes Pushed 10/13/19

All customers on all platforms will receive this update. Restart House Party to Download Story Updates from the Main Menu. If you are unable to connect to our server for any reason, you will have to wait for a Steam client update to get updated Story assets, or download the \Mods .zip and apply manually:

In the Original Story:

-Fixed an issue that would allow Players to earn the Achievement "The Harder They Fall...Dood" without actually having engaged Frank in Combat. Hey asshole, I see you with that exploit, you're fucking dead! (If Playing, Don't Restart Your Game if you want to take advantage of this. Luv u fam)
-Modified the back-end relationship values between Frank and Leah, should the Player take Leah down the "evil" route during "Broken Code"
-Patrick will not walk to the Player to talk to them about his VR brahmbat training if the Player betrayed him at any point
-Fixed an issue that could cause the Debug Log to be spammed with events that are part of Rachael's initial confrontation with Patrick
-Fixed an issue that could cause the Player to see multiple Achievement pop-ups for the "Caught in the Act" Achievement
-Fixed an issue that would cause Leah to not punch towards the Spray Paint Can in the upstairs art room closet during "Snake in the Grass"
-Fixed an issue that could cause NPCs to get stuck in the Garage if Leah and Madison/Lety's Garage-based scenes occurred in close proximity
-Fixed another issue that could cause Leah to approach Lety for their "Just in the Kick of Time" conversation while in the middle of Leah's new 0.15 content
-Fixed an issue that was preventing a specific Lety-Brittney BGC exchange from ever occurring
-Fixed an issue that could prevent the Player from earning "Flash" score with Katherine in certain circumstances
-Fixed an issue that could allow the Player to earn "Flash" score with Katherine by flashing the same NPC more than once
-Fixed an issue that would allow the Player to continue with Katherine's content even if they had not flashed all NPCs at the party (Lety and Vickie excluded)

Story Hot Fixes Pushed 10/14/19

All customers on all platforms will receive this update. Restart House Party to Download Story Updates from the Main Menu. If you are unable to connect to our server for any reason, you will have to wait for a Steam client update to get updated Story assets, or download the \Mods .zip and apply manually:

In the Original Story:

-The Player will now hit a bit harder and take a little more damage as part of the "evil"/Ronin finale of "Broken Code", should they get "trained"/enraged by Leah
-Frank, due to being terrified by Leah toward the finale of the "evil"/Ronin finale of "Broken Code", will be slightly weaker until "Broken Code" is Completed or Failed, even moreso if he witnesses the Player's descent into Rage...
-Certain food items from the fridge can now be eaten for additional Combat Stat increases, and health restoration. Remember that these may or may not be needed for use in other content! (some may look awkward in your inventory for now, we'll fix that)
-Fixed an issue that could cause the "Signs of Affection" Opportunity to become stuck, if the Player also had "Road to Redemption" active at the same time
-Cleaned up a redundant Derek hint response about getting closer to Ashley
-Drunk Lety will try to avoid bothering the Player about starting the "Try Anything Once" opportunity if the Player is in combat or about to be in combat
-Fixed a couple humiliating typos in one of Rachael's BGC's. This is why we don't have localization for your language...we can't even use our own correctly
-Fixed another issue that could allow Leah to walk to meet up with Lety for their "Just in the Kick of Time", even if Leah was hunting for the snake in the Art Room with the Player
-Fixed an issue that could cause Katherine to ask Stephanie to sing to her, and Stephanie to sing back in reply, even if Stephanie was nowhere near the downstairs bathroom during "Meltdown"
-Fixed an issue that could cause Lety to repeatedly walk towards the Player, if an older save was loaded. PERSONAL SPACE, LETY. PERSONAL. SPACE.

If you are unable to connect to our server for any reason, you will have to wait for a Steam client update to get updated Story assets, or download the \Mods .zip and apply manually:

In the Original Story:

-Fixed an issue that could cause Ashley's "Drunk and Disorderly" to break after the finale fight
-Fixed an issue that could cause eating a certain item to compromise Katherine's positioning, permanently
-Katherine will no longer wait around forever for the Player to get intimate with her. Since she hates her boyfriend so much, however, she will still be willing to give the Player a shot even if he was slow in tending to her needs. What honor. Such loyalty.
-Fixed an issue that could cause Patrick to repeatedly deliver "VR hint" dialogue after Leah's Garage Search in "Snake in the Grass"
-Fixed another issue with Leah/Lety content clashing towards the end of the yard/perimeter search in "Snake in the Grass"

Story Hot Fixes Pushed 10/15/19

All customers on all platforms will receive this update. Restart House Party to Download Story Updates from the Main Menu. If you are unable to connect to our server for any reason, you will have to wait for a Steam client update to get updated Story assets, or download the \Mods .zip and apply manually:

In the Original Story:

-Fixed a few issues that remained in regards to Leah-Lety "Just in the Kick of Time placement and movement event timing, as well as availability of certain Leah dialogue responses right before Leah and Lety's conversation starts
-Fixed an issue that could cause game message spam to occur if the Player was far away from Leah and Lety while they were waiting to talk
-Fixed an issue caused by yesterday's (10/14) Katherine master bedroom "wait behavior" change that could result in her not having her phone or glasses properly mounted or enabled
-There is now an apology response available so that the Player can recover from Untying Ashley's top AFTER having been nice to her all game and completed "Signs of Affection" from Vickie. But pursuing the actual "make up" part with Ashley in this situation won't require the Blue Flower or even be completable depending on your other previous choices...
-Fixed an incorrect criteria in an "apologize to Ashley" line that was preventing the Player from receiving a small social bonus with Ashley
-After throwing beer on Madison, Ashley wills till try to walk to the Player, but only if she is not occupied with other content the Player has involved her with, if the Player is not in combat, etc. This will prevent her from disappearing during moments of the "Family Time" opportunity, or bothering the Player mid-fight against Frank, and more annoying crap
-Addressed an issue which could cause Madison to approach the Player about her Sky Animal crap at inopportune times
-Certain "approach the Player and bother them" or "HEY PLAYER LOOK AT WHAT IS GOING ON HERE!" events like Amy's "Toe Stub" moment with Steph are now delayed by a brief universal time buffer, to prevent them from all happening at once quite as often
-Ashley will no longer react to the Player's amazing, shirtless body if she is in the middle of "Family Time" with Patrick
