Even if you don't feel like or can't donate via Patreon, your feedback is still critical to the development of Harem.  Let me know what you thought.  What you liked and what you didn't like.  What you'd like more of, what I should focus more on and even what you thought I spent too much time on.  The quality control I get from negative feedback is critical and the morale boost I get from positive feedback even more so.

  1. Okay, I seem to have created an infinite loop fighting the Tu'Than in the deep mines - the fight you're supposed to lose, I think. I killed one of them, and now I just keep getting the message "As one of the Tu'Than weakens, more rush in from the darkness!"

    1. this is not a bug, and is intended for the next scene to happen. Keep with it till the end and dont worry about losing anyone >.>

    2. No, I've been hitting enter for minutes and it still keeps going. I'm pretty sure it's stuck.

    3. Odd, I double checked the code and it seems to be working fine from my side. Could you send a save to haremrpg@gmail.com to see if I can figure out what's going on?

  3. Okay, the overall color change is fine in a vacuum, but why is Ralph now wearing, of all the goddamn things, a collared shirt? He looks like he's about to head off to casual Friday at the office, not crush a tentacle-monster's skull in with a lightning hammer!

    1. Lol, it has to do with the 3dcg male mod used. Ninjician can create a sprite based on it, but creating a male mod to match the ACE sprite would be several orders of magnitude more difficult.

      So ultimately, the main character looks the way he does because that's the best male mod available for 3dcg (imo)

  4. I seem to be having problems loading my old save. In battles Ralph is my only party member and when I try to change formation I'm only given one character slot. I can only switch Ralph with one of the girls.

    1. That's odd. Are you using any kind of save editor that might be changing variables around? If v30 gets changed that can cause an issue like that, but there's very few events in the game which can do so. It needs to be either 0 or 4+

      If you haven't, send me a save at haremrpg@gmail.com so I can take a look.

      Delete
    2. Ok, looking at those saves v30 did get moved. Has anyone else ran into this issue and if you did, do you remember what you were doing before it happened?

  5. When i'm fighting the orcs in order to rescue Angelica, i burn every house and kill all the orcs running in their camp, it's all okay at that extent, but when i try to confront their leader i simple can't talk to him no matter how many times e press the button or change the direction ou party members, i really don't know how i fight him

    1. Ok, that's a bug. There's supposed to be a line of events that trigger combat as you approach him, but the line is gone and there's only a single trigger tile.

      I will send out a correct version in the next few days, but for now step on the tile just beneath the line of 3 stools to the west and the battle should trigger, allowing you to progress.

  6. Can you make a statement about future updates in how far it will be possible to recruit Alena or Rhea on the dark or light route, or will they be important for the story in some way? will it break my game or immersion if i recruit one of them and then change my ethics through minor quests to the other route?

    ReplyDelete

    1. This is all planned, but not guaranteed.

      I am planning on making Alena and Rhea capture possible on both routes, but they are optional characters and won't become story critical.

      The game will actually prevent you from capturing both at this time. When you capture one, it checks the other. If you have both, you have too choose.

  7. I like the new light and dark events with chapter 4. All of the chapter 4 choices feel like real moral decisions as opposed to just being an ass. I found the fights with the Tu-Nathan to be too difficult until I cleared out all the side quests for gear and gold first.

    1. It is possible to do them without sidequests, but very difficult. If you do the hinted Fiona sidequest for the poison proof rings it becomes a lot easier.

      Thanks for the feedback!

  8. At some point Ralph reverted back to the old sprite and portrait. I'm not sure when this happened however.

    1. We're doing our best to catch all those, but it will likely be a few versions before we catch every switch. In the meantime, use skills - Ralph - check id ring - conditional reset and it will fix that.

  9. Hi. Excelent work as always! I keep slamming in a bug, however. After the Rhea's final fight Ralph is stuck at the second character slot, with the first occupied by Rhea. I can change her, but not with Ralph.

    1. Thanks! Switch out Ralph with another character and then switch Rhea for him. I don't think you can re-order directly, but you do it step by step.

  11. I am unsure if it is a bug but my relationship with the Circle Guild is poor in Cossix even though it was good in Eowen. Is it just dependant on my Ethos or like Harem V1, it is dependant on my choices?

    In my dealings with the Circle Guild previously, I chose "That You Were Hunting the Orc Camp as Well" & "Get Her Drunk". I made a mix of Light & Evil choices in my playthrough and my Ethos is -9

    Additionally, it is not ideal to mix it up? Or should we go all in for either path

    1. Ok, never mind. Seems Alexander's attitude is determined by second choice? Seems odd Jessica was kinda pissed at me during the meeting

    2. Essentially your first interaction with them is just flavor. She may be happy/annoyed with you after the mountain but the fact you saved Eowen swings her opinion. Unless you decide to get her drunk and take advantage of her of course. Then it swings back.

      You're encouraged to mix it up. I do my best to make the game adjust to individual choices with Ethos just being the general path. Just be careful if you intentionally oscillate around 0 ethos, I can't guarantee the game won't bug out if you do.

    3. Oh and yes, your interactions with her governs your relationship with the entire guild.

  12. Hey ker are you panning to make something like the tp mode also for mp? 'cause i usually use character like Angelica and Sara instead of Terra and Donna since i don't have to worry about using potion that way. Another option could be a character like samantha who instead can recover the mp of an ally.
    Anyway thanks for the update. I love this game

    1. It would probably be too complicated.
