Crashing fixed by clearing cache

I have a user report that I haven't replicated myself, but it is happening regularly for them with a new game. The game crashes or stops responding on start, and isn't fixed until the game's cache folder is emptied - this then occurs repeatedly. I will paste the text dump they sent me below. Could t...

Re: Are game bundles a good idea for commercial VNs?

Thanks for the responses! I don't see how VNs are different than any other genre of game when it comes to the effects of participating in these bundle deals. The articles you've read sound like they've covered the gammut on the subject, and line up with what I've read myself. I don't have any person...

Are game bundles a good idea for commercial VNs?

The internet has many articles discussing the effects that being part of a bundle sale can have on a game: increased exposure, devaluing the game, Steam key problems, etc. However, I didn't see anything specifically about VNs and I wanted to ask the community here. Commercial game makers: have you p...

Re: Steam integration in 6.99.12.4?

I will have to figure this out for myself before too long. So it would be great if anyone posted info, but I'll share what I learn if I get anything figured out myself.

The game is out! Right now it isn't out on all platforms (I'll post the SFW Steam version here later), but everyone can enjoy the trailer, created by the aforementioned Dovakitteh:

Re: GUI Programmer/Designer/Misc Services [Free/Paid][Open]

Hopping in to say that I hired Dovah to do GUI and video work for my VN, and it went well! They were very willing to rework things and I'm appreciative for everything they did to help me put the game together. ^-^

Re: Crimson Gray [BxG] [Psychological Thriller] [Yandere]

Ooh, this sounds interesting. I'm a fan of the deconstruction of tropes like these. Like others have said, I'm hoping that the treatment of mental illness is handled with care in this vn. I'm also a big fan of the character sprites. Who's the artist? Probably doesn't do a lot of good for me to simp...

Re: Crimson Gray [BxG] [Psychological Thriller] [Yandere]

Hello, thanks for your feedback! Some responses and questions for further clarification: Since mental illness is at the core of your VN, I would hope that you've done a lot of research into the topic. I'm no expert myself, but for one thing, the characters would not just suddenly 'get better,' i.e. ...

Re: Unexplained lag: can we get some people to test please?

Okay, so maybe we're zeroing in on the mouse as a possible problem? I don't recommend config.mouse, since it does lag on some configurations. Is there something else I should be using instead? Or are you suggesting that it's better not to have a custom mouse for the sake of performance? OK, I've tes...
