Re: The Big Secret - Art Poll

I want an art style where everyone is a jellyfish. I think we need more video games set in jellyfish boarding schools in this world. actually the world does need more jellyfish boarding schools now that I think about it

Re: Where Are The Cheats?

Can you elaborate on that? The bookie case should not be able to fail while the bookie is suspended. It's not written to, and I've just tested and kept the bookie suspended for a month with no problem. I'm trying to figure out if you mean a different case, or if you suspended the wrong girl, or if ...

Re: Where Are The Cheats?

Determining unwinnability mathematically is trickier than that. Say you have one of those expulsion cases, but instead of expelling the culprit you suspend them, and when they come back to school, immediately suspend them again? You can keep juggling someone for quite a while and stop the case from...

Re: Where Are The Cheats?

Actually, related question. Is there any kind of check in the game to ensure that, if you're already at <6 rep, the game won't give you one of the case variants where expulsion is the only answer? I don't think I've ever hit that situation, I'm just curious if you could get into an unwinnable situat...

Re: New Case Suggestions

What if some sort of student-run news organization, official or otherwise, got a hold of some potentially scandalous pictures/information and were preparing to publish them, and much like in the cell phone or artist cases you'd need to determine what the information is and stop it from going to prin...

Re: How did Mallory...

Maybe there's two councils? One for keeping order (Elsa's branch) and one for more stereotypical student council things like pep rallies and dances. In my school freshmen and sophomores couldn't be on the student council at all (the newspaper and yearbook also barred freshmen). Elections where held ...

How did Mallory...

So, Mallory is new. She just started this year. She mentions that her roommate encouraged her to run for student council.

Student council elections are in the spring. She wasn't at the school yet. She didn't have a roommate yet. How did Mallory get elected?

Re: Solving Mysteries - General Hints / Tips / Strategy

It's entirely possible to get cases you just don't have the stats to deal with early on. Sometimes you've gotta know when to throw a case.

Re: The Big Secret - Art Poll

I love it! The expressions are wonderful. Vonne looks so serious and dedicated (and a little creepier in her second pose) now and Rowan no longer looks so gosh darn miserable all the time. And all the character sprites are just gorgeous.

Re: Where Are The Cheats?

I've had Mallory as the traitor once. Ever. I don't know what it is, the RNG just does not like her betraying me. Vonne and Althea are my usual suspects.

Re: Solving Mysteries - General Hints / Tips / Strategy

Just keep searching- it'll take a while, but your minions will find something interesting eventually. Make sure whomever you've got out there has high enough stats; you probably won't see a flat out success here, but remember an ambiguous result can still give you what you need. Might be a good time...

Re: Current Beta information - Bug reports, fixes, and addit

I also got an exception when trying to update and uploaded a traceback. Tried updating from the most recent patch. Mine seems to be complaining about not having "game/students.rpcy".

I'd be fine with just getting the sprites to play with.

Re: Where Are The?

I'm actually considering adding a third difficulty level which prevents game-overs from running out of karma or rep. This would give you a less stressful game mode to practice in, while not (much) falsely inflating how well you're doing. You'd still see that your stats were low and still suffer the...
