Soon... soon...

Recently got a generous donation to get a new hard drive. I plan to buy one pretty soon, maybe after Momo con in Atlanta, GA. Once I get it all fixed the way I need it I can start working on the game again. Sorry for the lack of updates. Let me know if anyone here is going to Momo con this week!

New Artist

Hey people!

Sorry I haven't had time to work on the game. I still haven't been able to purchase a new hard drive. But a new artist has taken the time to draw a few sketches for the game and they look amazing! Let me know what you all think! Also, I'm still accepting donations to help pay for the commissions this guy is working on. I am also taking event submissions if you want. I keep them on my laptop for now until I can get my desktop working again. Thanks for all your patience! ~Wizardcraft

Good News Bad News

Nothing normal happens to me I swear.

Recently, I've come across a "hard disk failure iminate" error. In my experience, this error means your computer is about to shit all over your data and run super slow just to spite you.

Right now I am using said computer and attempting to transfer an ass load of data to my laptop (that doesn't allow RPG Maker VX Ace to be installed, for some odd "Windows Installer" reason) using MEGA's free 50gs and Google Drive's free 15g's. I have no idea when this will be complete, if it gets complete. All I know is that it's a bitch.

LUCKILY after going into command prompt and using "chkdsk /f c:" in elevated mode, I was able to fix the sluggish issues (most, but not all of it) and the computer still won't read my external (didn't save game data before this shit hit the fan), so I got a flash drive and put the game's data on it.

So we're in luck on that. Game data that I've worked on is safe and on the asshole laptop that doesn't like rpgmvxa. But now I gotta wait until I get paid again to purchase another interior hard drive. -,- Oh what fun that'll be. It doesn't help this computer is refurbished either. *poor man's computer*

So sadly, after I post this, I haven't a clue when I'll update the game again. I've been reading the emails you all send though. Thanks for the inspiration! =) Hopefully I'll have this computer sucking less sometime next month.

Having said all that, if someone would like to instruct me on how to get passed this message on my laptop "The Windows Installer Service could not be accessed. This can occur if the Windows Installer is not correctly installed. Contact your support personnel for assistance."

With that, I have installed it correctly. As far as I know. I even made sure the registry looked exactly the same as the recommended settings according to Microsoft's website. I deleted it once (when it was still giving this error) and replaced it with a new copy from Microsoft's website and it still gives the error. Not sure what do at this point. Email me for some tips. inb4 delete system32. I'm not that retarded.

With love,

Image hunting sucks

Which is why I'm wondering if anyone would like to do some image hunting for me. I need battlers for the game, really badly too. It's almost hampering my ability to get progress done on the arena. I'd like battlers for these faces...












If you do find some battler images, email me at wizardcraft9000@gmail.com and give me the website you found them on because most artist require to be credited, which is perfectly fine too. I just need to see their terms of usage for their images.

The main reason why I'm asking for image hunters is not only for the obvious visual purposes, but because I will spend over an hour failing at finding a decent image of JUST ONE of these faces to match a battler image. I'm not an artist so I can't/won't be doing art for the game unless someone else does. I've had someone make art for the game (for scenes they wanted, but aren't actually in the game yet) but there isn't really a place for them yet unless I write the scenes somewhere. Which, again, I'm okay with. So if anyone would like to find these please be my guest and I'll credit you for helping me out. Thanks!

P.S. The guards don't need battlers.

Good and Gooder News But Then...

https://productforums.google.com/forum/?hl=en&pli=1#!category-topic/blogger/jAep2mLabQY

So basically TL;DR, blogger is NOT implementing that new update about adult blogs due to adult blogs being on blogger for over 10 years, but instead, they're going to reinforce their current policy.

*breathes*

I'd like to take a moment and revel that I posted this in my feedback:  "If blogger wanted a more strict policy on nudity, it would be easier to change the adult blogs that aren't labeled as adult to private until the owner changes the blog's settings, making viewers agree that they're 18+ (or whatever age in their respective country)."

I feel like they took a lesson from me. But I'm sure plenty of people working on their side were thinking the same thing that I was thinking there. But still. Yay I (think) helped.

That was the good news.

Gooder news.

I'll be working on MGR this weekend. Mostly Sunday. That's the gooder news.

This is the shit shit shitty news.

Leonard Nimoy died today at the age of 83. R.I.P., one of my childhood heroes. Thank you for everything. Live long and prosper.


Thanks for reading.

Seriously Bad News

Hello everyone.

I recently received this email. 


-------------------

Dear Blogger User,

We're writing to tell you about an upcoming change to the Blogger Content Policy that may affect your account.

In the coming weeks, we'll no longer allow blogs that contain sexually explicit or graphic nude images or video. We'll still allow nudity presented in artistic, educational, documentary, or scientific contexts, or where there are other substantial benefits to the public from not taking action on the content.

The new policy will go into effect on the 23rd of March 2015. After this policy goes into effect, Google will restrict access to any blog identified as being in violation of our revised policy. No content will be deleted, but only blog authors and those with whom they have expressly shared the blog will be able to see the content we've made private.

Our records indicate that your account may be affected by this policy change. Please refrain from creating new content that would violate this policy. Also, we ask that you make any necessary changes to your existing blog to comply as soon as possible, so that you won't experience any interruptions in service. You may also choose to create an archive of your content via Google Takeout (https://www.google.com/settings/takeout/custom/blogger).

For more information, please read here (https://support.google.com/blogger?p=policy_update).

Sincerely,
The Blogger Team

Any suggestions on where I should put my blog if blogger shits on it?

Monster Girl Rancher - Gettin' Some Lovin'

I'm working on MGR tonight. Testing some custom scripts I've made too. I'm trying to avoid 3rd party scripts that already work (call me stupid, I don't care).

A few things I will note so far though that will be in the next update.


  • Bug fixes
    • Brothel issue with an invisible wall (Fixed)
    • Game Guidance (Not really a bug, but would be nice for some people) 
    • More NPCs and additional content. (Because most people like content, right?)
  • Improving the Shrine's Monster Girl Introductions!
    • This is important. They all have names! You won't be naming them anymore. They're all special and need love! Special love!! (Adding WAY better dialog and copy/pasta)
  • Locking party size to 4 members at a time. If you want a new party member you'll need to go to the ranch, leave a girl, and recruit someone different. Same goes for unlocking a girl. Gotta have room to take her back to the ranch.
  • Progress on the Arena.
    • That includes arena battles and progressing for future developments. 
    • That also means fixing some kind of ticket glitch people were fighting with. 
    • That also means getting your first rival! I've been kinda itching to introduce "her"! 
  • This update will not include new collectable monster girls. I will not be progressing on the under world area for this update. 


Monster Girl Rancher is getting a small revamp as far as interaction goes with party members. You'll need to leave monster girls at your ranch if you want a new party member. This will help with the "Talk with your Monster Girls" actions much easier on me since I'm trying to not use scripts. Plus I like it a little more because in the original monster rancher games, you could only have 1 monster at a time, up until the more recent games like EVO and MR4 where you could have 5 at a time. I'm going through the process to editing the event sequences to benefit this new implementation. I'm gonna add some stuff to the arena too.

Keep in mind I start my new job next week. I am more happy to work on MGR and SM, but I may be busy on weekdays and sometimes weekends because on Friday and Saturday nights I am usually playing D&D with my friends. I've also considered taking two fetishes off of my "No go" list due to the request emails I've got so far. Those two were incest and bestiality. Personally, I don't care. I'll add it where it will be appropriate but someone might need to wright the material if they REALLY want it in there, otherwise I might over look it. Feel free to write up a random event for me and I'll get to adding it to the game. I might need a few more people to ask me to remove it from the list though before I actually go through with it. You can message me at wizardcraft9000@gmail.com OR you could just add me to your skype using my ID: wizardcraft9000
