It's been a while

Sorry about the communication blackout, folks. Ten hour days plus two hours of travel time (total) make for one tired Anonymous Man.

I've been looking at a few of the bugs reported when I have the time. A couple of things to note. First and foremost, the timer going absolutely batshit when you're at Britney's apartment is not intended. My understanding (and past experience!) with live timers is that they're supposed to bloody well stop when the game itself is paused, which apparently they do not. Which is bullshit. But anyway, the timer will be a little more generous, while also being a little more constraining (longer intervals, but bigger steps, essentially) in the next update, as well as actually pausing at times to give you time to read text.

It also looks like a lot of stuff got borked from the last big update somehow, so I've got to take a look at those and figure out what the deal is. The brothel-church will be the bane of my existence, I swear.

Once those bug fixes are in place and I have a chance to catch my breath, I'm going to spend time finishing up otherwise incomplete content. Some of it is easy, like the swimming at the beach encounter. Some is much more time consuming, like the Genevieve dating simulator. But it's been languishing for too long and needs to get finished, if only so that I can get people to stop reporting incomplete content as bugged.

It will take time, mainly because I have so little of it, but hopefully, it will make the game seem more complete.

Also, there's apparently an alpha version of RAGS 3.0 available for testing. It gets away from .net framework and everything loads much faster, but given how badly I've been burned by unready RAGS releases before, I'll probably hold off for now.


  1. I wonder if Rydia is another potential partner in the future? I would like to see more of her than just the 3 or so talks. Only if you have time, though, hang in there.

  2. It probably is best to stay away from alpha versions of anything. I stay away from things until its in mid to late stages of Beta. Anyway good luck :D

  3. Are we going to see the Church Brothel fleshed out a bit more? I love everything else you have put into the game, but I want to be able to improve the stats of my girls, and also start the event without cheating.

  4. The new Beta version of RAGS uses the WPF (Windows Presentation Foundation) which is a graphical subsystems found in later versions of .NET, so it is not real moving away from .Net as such. lol

  5. Something to think about before using the new RAGS beta, it requires .Net 4.5 which is not supported on any Windows OS less than Vista SP2.

    So anyone still running Window XP will not be able to play your game without doing some hacking, and even then it may not work correctly.

  6. Are we going to see any more careers, like nurse or waitress?

  7. So you've been away for a while now, just wondering if you have something out in the real world keeping you busy. It'd be nice to know mate. :)

  8. For some reason I can't call in for maternity leave it still says I have to go to work.

    1. Yeah, I know that feeling, maternity leave has never worked for me.

  9. is there any way to play this game on mac? I just found this game.
