Another week of forward progress but might have had a significant setback.
Sarah - 6/8 scenes written, 6/8 imaged and coded. I forgot how much of a pain combat eventing is and it took me most of the day to script the 3 fights with her. But hopefully they'll be interesting. Overall a lot more character in her capture sequence. Only thing left is base scenes.
Terra - Completely rewrote her capture and mind sequence. 26 pages overall. About End will still give you a choice but it's going to different on the dark path and not as immediate of an impact. 2/4 scenes written, again just base stuff left to do. Nothing imaged, see the note below.
1 sidequest implemented.
There will be a series of scripted fights with Sarah
There will be random fights inside of Terra's mind
There will be random fights in the side-quest dungeon.
There will not be random fights in the overland map
Leveling will be two part. There will be exp from battles that will raise level, but it will apply to everyone in your harem atm. I've coded a sequence that will let me bring new slaves up to the same level as everyone else at the same time. But as you progress from one chapter to the next you'll get put up to a minimum level if you haven't done any side-quests along the way. The content in that chapter will be balanced as if you were that minimum level.
Base scenes. I'm not sure if I'm going to do them for everyone currently in the group. Terra will need 2 for story progression. Sarah and Samantha may share a scene and Donna's featured in a sidequest scene so I may just leave it on that.
Jessica's introduction - Fairly simple and the existing writing will just need a few slight tweaks.
What's the setback?
Windows did an update this morning and now 3dcg won't work. Freezes as the default character does her introduction in Japanese. Doesn't matter how long it sits, never moves forward. Tried different compatibility settings, didn't help. Tried to remove all arcs, didn't help. Tried to reinstall 3dcg in a clean spot, didn't help. If anyone knows a solution to this, the help would be appreciated.
Windows 10 Pro 64 bit, set region to : Japanese
Nvidia GTX 670 graphics
Running on a 180gb Intel SSD
What's the result?
Trying to set up a virtual Windows 8 computer to solve the issue for now. But it'll be bad in terms of productivity and workflow. If that doesn't work I can reuse old images or just got imageless until I build another computer to handle this specific job. For 2.0.2 I might go re-used image/imageless and then fill in content over time. I'm hoping this won't interfere with me releasing in early January to Patreons and Mid January for everyone.
