Critical Bug Fixes Update (0.4.1c)

Bug Fixes:
1) Britney's number will stop disappearing from your phone.
2) The tailor will now properly resize all clothes. Unfortunately, because of the method I had to use to fix this, you may notice a bit of a delay when doing the "Clothing Group" or "All Clothes" options. The program may hang for a few seconds.
3) The elegant dress will no longer be improperly sized when putting it on as part of an outfit.
4) Buying concentrate from the drug dealer (can of orange liquid) will work properly, and drinking it will make it go away properly too.
5) Finally figured out why inhuman transformations were still progressing before day 60. Fixed that (you can still use the cheat to activate them, though).
6) If you get fired from your job, the relevant Go To Work option will disappear now.
7) The mouse now properly disappears at the end of the day if you choose to ignore it, though it can and will come back if conditions are met.

Other minor fixes, like typos and stuff.

Things I couldn't fix because I couldn't reproduce them:
1) The nursing bra disappearing if it is not set to an outfit, when coming home from the stripper job.
2) The special outfit counting as nude (Need more information, what do you mean "counts as nude"? Is it saying you're nude? Is it acting as if you're wearing indecent clothing?)
3) Error messages from the church after corrupting the nuns (never saw it). Screenshots would be very helpful here.
4) Dragon TF isn't progressing (worked perfectly for me). Note that it can take up to 10 cigarettes for each level if your luck is really bad.
5) Black dildo disappearing after buying it (all sex toys go in the middle drawer, which has no other purpose...maybe it was just overlooked?).
6) Maid job draining skill points (the maid job has zero effect of gaining skill points).
7) The effects of the mind expander drug (little blue pill) never wear off (I didn't see this effect, but I think I might know what causes it...anyone else seen it?)
8) Security Guard (Vic) sticks around after the first mission (he disappeared properly for me on multiple tests).
9) Robot upgrades act as if you already have an upgrade in un-upgraded locations (Didn't happen for me, tried all upgrades with all body parts).

Not actually bugs:
1) Swimming encounter doesn't continue after a certain point (it's incomplete).
2) It is possible to get the drug dealer's phone number before unlocking all the drugs. His drug list is updated at the end of the day, but he'll give you his phone number as soon as conditions are met.

  1. Why is there a discrepancy in the file sizes?
    The mouse? Didn't understand that one...
    for #6 - that option will reappear if you choose that job again later in the future though, right?
    Rags 2.4.16
    Under the second list, for me...
    1*-2 Saw no errors / couldn't reproduce (1 - was with other jobs though; haven't tried it with the stripper branch)
    3-5 haven't tried them yet in the previous build
    6-7 could not reproduce the same; saw no errors
    8 - Did indeed see Vic after the first mission was completed. For my games, I completed the mission early going through a different path not involving Vic. When hitting the bar during a time Vic should be around, then he's there (up until the normal mission deadline and then we won't show up anymore as normal).
    9 - haven't tried this; but here's a question, if you progressed to certain stages in transforming, then do the meds to stop them doesn't remove what you already got? That med doesn't seem to work as far as I can tell.

    Thank-you about the Swimming thing; I assumed other encounters like dating (I'm looking at you Genevieve!) or other NPCs interactions where you choose an option and nothing happens are just incomplete.

    1. My copy of Cursed v0.4.1c 1-12.rag is 50536448 bytes long.

      Some people use 1000 bytes is 1 kilobyte and 1,000,000 bytes is one megabyte. Using this definition, the file size would be 5.05MB.

      Some people use 1024 byte is 1 kilobyte and 1048576 bytes is 1 megabyte, which would make the file size 48.2 MB.

      If you are curious about the details, maybe http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Megabyte#Definitions will be interesting to you (but I imagine there must be colorful stories behind this, somewhere).

  3. Here is some detail on my report that the special outfit "acts as nude" - this is from memory, I have not played the game for a week or two:

    First, when I put it on, the other clothing I was wearing was not removed.

    Second, when I did remove the other clothing and examined my description, the game reported that I was not wearing anything.

    I did not look at deeper issues.

  4. There is one thing that I'm not sure if it's intended or if it's a bug, but the books/magazines you buy prior to having the bookshelf in your home do not go into the bookshelf like any other book/magazine you buy from then on.

    1. Did you try right-clicking the bookshelf and "Cleaning up"? Or whatever the command is called... It isn't automatically done, but you should be able to put things onto the bookshelf after you buy it.

    2. Anon1 from earlier
      yeah, actually that's right. I have had this problem too! Definitely a bug since (iirc) in previous builds you could clean up like Alonira said and make things tidy again. not true with the build before this one (haven't DL'd the new one yet since I'm still debating and looking for the awesomely curious 5.05 MB version that Anon3 have said.) :P

      Delete
    3. Books purchased before bookshelf remained "on the floor" in previous build as well. "Clean up" option did nothing for them. So no changes from last version.

      Delete
    4. Ditto... I actually purchased the books at the same time as the bookshelf and they are still strewn all about the floor despite using the "clean up" option numerous times... Strangely enough, the videos I purchased are organized in the bookshelf but not the books...

      Delete
    5. I have a video that I bought on the same day as the bookshelf, and it stubbornly won't get put away (the dance DVD if that's meaningful).

  6. I have also experienced mind expander doesn't wear off, I had it on for like, 2 months so far.

    also, another thing happened to me is that underwear is not saved as part of an outfit and when you do select to put on a saved outfit, it will take off the underwear you are wearing, so I have to dress everyday manually.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Yes, it does happen semi-randomly. Some set outfits give you underwear and some don't. For example, I've saved "Work" outfit with 'blouse and pants' and it didn't save, but same outfit with 'elegant dress' get saved properly. My workaround was "Get dressed in set with a dress">"wear blouse". One more click, but better than picking up each piece individually.

      Delete
  7. Another minor issue: software purchased before this build don't show in the list when you select computer. It does report as already owned in the Mall. Newly acquired software go into list properly.

    Probably not so important as releases go, since it hadn't happened (so far) with new game started from this build.

  8. got caught by a werewolf in the first two weeks. not sure if that counts as a tf, but it happened to me. I got hooked on aphrodisiac and the withdrawal effects wont go away. Also, apparently i can buy multiple syringes from the dealer, as many as i want, but once i use one they all disappear.

    1. Oh, and the herbal pill is 125, as the drug dealer says, but when you go to take it or buy it, i think, she says its 200.

  9. Not sure if that bug existed before, or if it is intentional, but having Nylon Fetish or any other Lust inducing one with failed reqs (not wearing Nylon in case above) will rise lust with *any* action taken outside. For example, repeated use of Examine will bring lust to 100 in mere moments.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. It's worked that way forever, I just assumed it was working as intended.

      Now, I *do* think that stockings should count as nylons, but I believe that's also a design choice rather than a bug.

      Delete
  10. I can help you reproduce the missing clothes at stripper job thing. Note, it works for any clothing item, as far as I can tell, doesn't have to be the nursing bra.

    Put on a set outfit, say casual. Now remove an item, like the nylons, and put on something else, like sheer nylons. Go to work as a stripper. When you leave work, the game will redress you in the casual outfit, whatever you had on that doesn't fit anymore (in this example the sheer nylons) gets put in your locker.

    I actually noticed a similar effect if I put on the casual outfit, then strip naked and go to the beach, when I get home I'm wearing my casual outfit. It seems the game is remembering what outfit you last put on, rather than what clothes you are actually wearing when you walk out the door.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. It seems that the the clothing sets Casual and Work do not save bras, and this can be tested by just setting the outfit, and then choosing it after.

      The stripper job acts just like how you can 'get dressed,' and so you can lose any bra from it, but you can also lose bras just by trying to get dressed directly from the Casual and Work sets.

      This does not affect the Extra Outfits.

      Delete
    2. Also, I just want to add that the Casual outfit DID save a bra in the beginning, but at one point it no longer was fitting.

      I kept the outfit for a while, and I eventually just resaved it without the bra.

      It was after that, that I noticed it would no longer save any.

  11. I am unable to complete the quest that Maria gives me (breaking into the laboratory)... I have purchased the lockpick from Maria's telephone contact and she delivered it to me... I am only able to examine the lockpick but I cannot take it... I have tried to do this numerous times (called back to re-order the lockpick) but I still cannot pick it up...

    A possible reason for the glitch could be because I didn't realize it was on the floor and thus I did not pick it up the first time it was delivered... I re-ordered it and when it arrived I was unable to pick it up as two lockpicks had been delivered to the same location...

    I am using the most recent version of Cursed (2.4.14.0)...

  12. i am unable to run the game using rags. keeps saying the game file is unreadable. I was using the mediafire link

  13. This may not be a good time, or the right place to put this, but why not introduce games into Cursed? Like consoles and computer games :D That would give something else for player characters to do while at home. Not to mention the twists on names, like the YCube 420.

    I was thinking that it could have 3 versions, like the tv upgrade. Like you can buy a N64 for the low tech one (possibly the M128 or M46 :3), a PS2/Xbox for medium tech (or PX2, Playbox 2) and a PS3/Xbox 360 for current tech (a XStation 3 or YCube). Heck maybe a High/Future tech that costs a lot of money like a PS4/Xbox one (a One:4 box...yeah couldn't come up with a good enough name). The games would require certain skills to complete, like Dexterity or leadership skills (if an RPG). And it could give unique TF's or scenes for the character. Like maybe the player is playing something similar to Tomb Raider and makes the choice about how they feel about the large breasts. Or play a game similar to Bloody Roar and say how they feel about the "Furry" aspect, or even the "TF" aspect of it.

    And then you got the PC games where you can play an MMO and develop your Supervisory skills, with their own special scenes. And any pc game where you can mod it which increase technical aptitude.

    It was just a thought, and I'm not sure if this will require a lot of work or something but it could help level skills, or acquire traits, that have little other ways of levelling them, like the "Furry" trait. Plus it could help when the player runs out of things to do at the apartment, such as leveling a skill or they have done everything else. Giving new scenes and TF's options.

  14. Cursed v0.4.1c with Rags 2.4.0 under Win7 on an AMD Athlon X2...

    The syringe of BGH appears to have the same sort of purchase multiples / use once behavior that the concentrate had earlier in the 0.4.1 builds.

    ReplyDelete
  15. 2.4.0

    This one has existed for a while, but I just confirmed it's still here in 0.4.1c, when you are transformed into a succubus, your arousal actually runs backwards from whatever it is to 50 over time. So, you take an aphrodisiac or watch an adult movie and it bumps up, but if you then just spend time units doing things like cleaning, exercising or whatever, it goes down by 2 every time unit, rather than up, bottoming out at 50.

  16. Missing 'm' in dialogue when asking Genevieve out for lunch. Succubus TF, but not High Succubus. G and I are still just friends, she refuses to kiss me at this stage. Lunch at the "Bistro" option.

    Dialogue:

    "Oui, that sounds like fun. Did you have something in mind?"
    "There's a nice little bistro not far from where I live. I was thinking of getting something for lunch there, and wondered if aybe you'd like to come with e."

    1. I should add that I have done absolutely nothing (that I know of) which increases cow tf. No breast pump, no green syringe.

      Delete
    2. Another one. Clothes shopping w/G and she gives me a dress to try on, choose the 'sexy show' option and:

      "How does it look, Katie?" Genevieve calls from outside the changing room. You put on your sexiest smile and open the door, sauntering out with a little extra swing in your hips.

      "Why don't you tell e, honey?"

      Delete
    3. As I continue to go through Genevieve dates, it looks like absolutely any time I have a leading "m" in a dialogue line, it's missing. If I find one that's actually in there, I'll post about it, rather than continuing to point out all the missing ones.

      Also, RE dates, the game does not take weather into account if you suggest going to the beach and getting a tan. It can be thunderstorming out, and still let you do it.

  17. Is the closet supposed to be nonfunctional before a job is taken?

    At first I thought there was a bug with the robe. If you skip intro, go put the robe on, then remove it, it apparently vanishes from your inventory and the room. Actually it goes to the closet, but you can't open the closet to get it out yet.

  18. RAGS 2.4.14. It seems like both the Cat TF and the Cow TF are still unlockable prior to completing the lab. The Cat TF was achieved through the Lithe Pill and the Cow TF was achieved through copious amounts of breast milk.

  20. Cursed 0.4.1c in Rags 2.4.0 under Win7 on AMD Athlon X2

    Britney apartment timer is very fast even when walking in with zero arousal giving no time to read the main text and barely enough time to read the input window options.

    Having a talk input window open when the timer runs out locks up rags so that the program has to be killed in task manager: Neither the input OK button or the active click to continue button function.

    Examine Britney's aparmtent for a rags error: ct_displayroompicture

    Earlier blog postings, in-game info at start of Britney mission and the 'search apartment' option all imply that being sneaky and investigating her apartment should be an option but the only time her apartment appears in the list of destinations is after using the phone to secure an invitation and the option disappears until the second invitation. Lockpicks not acquired until after reading Maria's note with Britney's information.

    Getting Britney to snap-out of her trance displays text "...and leave the room, heading back to your apartment..." but there is a click to continue at this point and the timer continues to run until clicked. Being slow to click at this point leads to the sex scene even after it should have been averted.

    ReplyDelete

    1. I'll second this, that timer is waaaaaaaaay too fast. I'm not a fan of timed events to begin with, especially with a game interface like this, and that one is just frustrating, not at all fun.

      I get what you're wanting to do, but how about the meter ticks up with each misstep, instead of while you're just trying to read the text? Maybe if you pick certain dialogue it locks you into the sex scene.

      Also, I too thought that there would be another way to solve this. Trying to search the apartment even says that you'd need to distract her, but there seems to be no way to do that. Certainly if you go the sex route, after she's passed out would be a perfect opportunity to poke around, but the game sends you straight back home instead.

      Also, if you do manage to break her out of her trance, and beat the timer on the last click so you avoid the sex scene, Brit asks you to call her the next day. Doing so just results in the message, "You pick up the phone and dial the number that Britney gave you." Nothing else, and you can't go to her place anymore.

    2. Cursed 0.4.1c in Rags 2.4.0 under Win7 on AMD Athlon X2

      Using the telephone the next day works for me, but there is a catch to getting the second invitation: It looks like you need to wait nearly a full 24 hours (until the same time block? one block later?) to call. If you are too early you get dialog with a response to the effect of 'not tonight' and have to call again the next day.

      I'm hoping that the later 'disconnected' message is just a placeholder for additional content... or perhaps there is another solution that keeps her around...

      Delete
    3. The difference may be that I went back on subsequent days after failing the timed event, rather than restoring from a save. I finally managed to succeed in it, but I'm guessing I failed the test after the first failure at the timed event.

      So, that being said, if that's the case then the game should lock you out from trying again once you fail the timed event. So, call this a bug located. :)

      As a complete aside, AnonymousMan, I want you to know that I *love* this game. Love it to pieces. The reason I'm posting so many bugs is an attempt to be helpful. Hopefully I'm not sounding like a negative sourface.

  21. I still can't phone Britney. I got her number at the bar, but the option is never there to phone her. Is there a specific time you do it at? I used a save from the previous version but the save was before I met Britney, does that matter? Also, I think the computer software is still messed up, because it disappears for me, I think if I quit and reload. I have RAGS 2.4.0.0 as far as I can tell.

  23. I'm not sure how to talk about duplicating this one. Using this version obviously and Rags 2.4.0.0.

    Got Succubus transformation finally done and yet my inhibitions never lowered, still have around 40ish. I got the messages when waking up about no longer feeling as inhibited or however it goes but no change to the stat. I didn't unlock transformations using the testing device. I was buying lots of herbal pills and taking them at once so that might have been it.

    Also Security Guard never disappeared for me either, but I never do his event and opt to just infiltrate every time.

    The other issue I had was that I got fired from the office job and accepted the waitress one. Except for some reason every time I tried going to that one at the relevant time it wouldn't let me saying I don't have a shift today. So then a few days later I got the "You've been fired" event again. After that I could choose the job and go but it skipped the interview event and I had "bad job ratings" on the board my first day.

    1. Oh forgot to mention this but it's an old one. As a succubus you can't wear the cross anymore but if it's already in one of your set outfits you can get around that.

    2. Another issue came up now that I played again. Loading my save broke a few succubus things like the arousal staying above 50. Now it goes below that like it would before.

  24. Thanks for all the hard work love the update so far but I can't figure out if you can go any further with Gueinvere the hairdresser can you not progress to a point where you can invite her back and make love? Or is no relationship thingy implemented yet?

  25. Hey can you put this updated version into the links on the right sidebar of the blog? I clicked over there first and didn't immediately realize it was one version older. I'll bet some of the continuing bug reports are from people who did the same thing.

  30. Rags, 2.4.0 I'm seeing some problems with the Nuns and the brothel. Several of the Nuns prior to the brothel cannot be talked to. At the brothel I've noticed that earning money is really difficult, almost impossible without making your girls work hard and work with exclusive clientele. I've also noticed that the "breast lover" fetish doesn't work at all, at least with Bianca. You start it, but it translates into Bondage for some reason after you do it once. As it stands I'm not sure the Brothel is even really viable to play in at this moment.
