Seconded. While I am terrible at it (I've yet to make it through the year) this is a wonderful game that I keep coming back to.
I just need to find a way for someone other than Vonne to be the traitor!

0.8.18 changelog

#137 Post by Spiky Caterpillar » Tue Dec 23, 2014 3:20 am

Changes:
* New case type in.
* Graduation CG in.
* The fix for the reload-2.bcs crash is now actually included in the patch properly. (It had been included as an rpyc, so the game would overwrite it with an older version at the first opportunity - oops!)
* A bug in save/load should be fixed.
* Naming your save no longer discards the part of the name after the cursor.
* Crash stalking a girl when her dealer is suspended fixed.
* Various bugs in the new case fixed.

Not yet fixed:
The looping on OS X, a crash starting the mole case in certain circumstances, a weird save that I need to poke.

0.8.18 MacOS 10.10.1, there's a crash on the start of second semester on one of the Rowan paths where the underground tunnels case never shows up.

Also on the weekend following that, after the discussion with Rowan there's a message that says "XXX fade on to activities, mark ****** absent for the day." Probably can be taken out as the character is absent for that day.

That thing where you realize all the CGs are easily accessible. And here I thought they were encoded.

It's difficult to package them while things are still being added because redownloading 100MB through the updater would... not work well for most people.

Ah, ok, so it's a perk of testing. :D

0.8.18, there seems to be a bug in the phone call ring case where the behavior will be discouraged but the case won't get closed out. If you ignore the bug, the day advances, but no other character behavior will. Traceback uploaded.

There's a little typo in the cinema weekend event (I got it with Thais, but I think the text is the same for everyone): there is apparently a marquis of showtimes outside the cinema. Made me giggle :)

0.8.19 changelog

#145 Post by Spiky Caterpillar » Wed Dec 24, 2014 4:25 am

* A crash when the cards of girls whose names are ácčèntèd finish moving on some systems has been fixed.
* A crash starting the steam tunnels case after a graffiti artist case fixed.
* A crash after you've successfully neutralized girls forwarding an embarrassing picture fixed.
* A crash when apparently trying to target a Councillor has been improved. (I'm not sure what's causing the crash; the improved version should give more information.)

I've tracked down the OS X lockup, should have a fix for it in 0.8.20.

Thanks! For what it's worth, today I had a bug on Rowan as traitor. After I picked her as my queen and mislead the organizer on e-mail, the case promptly disappeared. No crash log, I'll see if I can get it to happen again.

Edit: Just verified it still happens (and that the steam tunnels bug is fixed as noted). Without a crash report, how can I get a stack trace to post?

The case is supposed to disappear and then reappear after the festival, if you successfully misled the organizer. If it's not reappearing, the best thing to do is upload a savegame affected by the bug (and, if you have one a week or two before the bug, that as well) to http://spikycaterpillar.com/savegame-upload.html - mention what bug(s) the save is supposed to demonstrate in the comments field when uploading.

Stack traces aren't usually that helpful for plot bugs - in the event you want to generate one, something like

Code: Select all

renpy.show('crash',what=ui.textbutton('Crash',action=1))
can be used, though.

Erm.. And then at some point I attempted to load from my last save, but a prompter said that there was unknown or new data in my save. So I chose the option to upload my save and traceback and boomz- My game closed on its own and this popped up as a txt file:

Hi there. I've just downloaded and tried to update the game and I'm getting this:

Image

I couldn't get anywhere with it, so I just reported it to SC and pressed ignore.

Not a bad game, but I've encountered another problem while playing (it might be related to the update failure):
One of my minions has been locked in a closet during a failed mission. And she's still unavailable after two weeks, but I've still been able to go out with her on weekends. When it's a weekday, she's back in the closet.
