I need everyone's help in testing the game! I'm looking for bugs and tweaks I can make to improve the game. I'm happy to receive any kind of feedback, such as if you liked the story, characters, etc but I won't be re-writing a lot because I want the game to be finished.

We've decided against rushing everyone out and dealing with a thousand bugs at once (that would be the worst) so we're rolling out the content over time. Story Mode is complete in content, however, and is playable right now. Open Mode characters will be released when they are completed, like free DLC.

Image


THIS IS A BETA. THERE WILL BE BUGS. SAVED GAMES MAY BE CORRUPTED. If you want a very smooth experience, this is probably not the time to jump in. You're more than welcome, but you've been warned.

Helpful things you can do for me as a tester:
  • Attach a traceback to your post for any game-breaking errors and describe the scenario you were in when it triggered.
  • If you catch a typo, I wanna know about it!
  • Refrain from modding the game your first time through.
  • There is a questionnaire attached to this post that you can fill out if you're not sure what kind of feedback to give.
  • For some reason everyone PMs me their bug reports & feedback but I'd rather that be public so people can know what is already reported. If you don't feel comfortable with that, that's okay. You can still PM me.

FAQ
My game won't launch / crashes immediately.
This is likely a problem with your video drivers / video card or you have a corrupted download.

Where are the rollback/game menu buttons on screen?
You'll need to use keyboard/mouse buttons. The mousewheel or PageUp/Down buttons work for rolling back and the ESC key or right-click brings up the game menu. All of the game's controls can be viewed from the "Help" screen on the main menu.

Who's that guy on the Open-Ended Mode graphic?
You'll find out when I release that mode's story next week!

The Open Mode characters don't have anything to say.
They're probably not released yet.

Will I be able to continue playing my band that I made in Story Mode after the ending?
Not right now, but I am thinking of making a cheat code where you can enter to play Story Mode endlessly.

Why can't I scroll down the thread on the Public Opinion forum?
It is a fake thread. You will only ever be able to see 2 posts in every thread.

It's taking a long time to generate $1,000,000 in CD sales.
Your CDs sell more if you're more popular, meaning you should probably play more gigs.

Certain things in the story happen no matter what I do!
These are pre-determined and won't change. They are there for character growth and to account for Open-Ended Mode.

How do I mod the game?
Instructions are here.

Why doesn't the music being played in the gigs reflect the actual instruments I have in my band?
The amount of time it would take to accomplish that outweighs how much that would add to the game.

Can I accidentally romance other characters?
Not in Story Mode. You pick your romance path early on at Sophia's party ("Who do I want to hang out with?") and you can only fail that character's path from then on. So you don't have to ignore the other band members. :)

What happened to the characters that I met in Story Mode that just disappeared? (Wizz, etc.)
These are band recruits for Open Mode that you are unlocking for later. Once they are officially released (see release schedule above) and you recruit them in Open-Ended Mode, their story arc will begin to trigger.

Why is this game free?
Because we started this game 6 years ago when commercial VNs were barely a thing and quality otome/EVNs were few and far between. Also, I built this game with a lot of resources with strict non-commercial licenses.

I'm getting an error about "mini_Faust_love.png" whenever I try to save/load.
There was an error while updating that didn't let the GUI files update. Follow instructions here to fix it, or re-download the game. Sorry!

Known Bugs
- Arrow in tutorial goes under stat bar
- Skipping in mini-games breaks them

Bug: When you showcase Robin's baby, on the gig screen when the band is playing, you can see the coding on that one with Robin flickering on and off. The game continues after that.

Also, tried opening the memo. after completing Emmitt's path. This is what I got.

Oh, haha. I didn't write the correct file name for her sprite. I'll include that in tonight's update. :) Thank you. (You're already so far in the game!)

Yup! I finished one's path. Also, is Open Mode safe to play? I saw that it's a skeleton and I wasn't sure if it will be alright to play around there since it doesn't have a story to it yet.

You can play around in it. No biggie. Nothing happens really.

I downloaded the beta this morning and i'm still playing the game and enjoying it sooo much. For now I haven't encountered any mistake, i may have overlooked them though, or bug.

I'm filthy rich in open mode that it's not even funny. I have almost $4 mil in total. Though I have been working the members to death chugging out songs left and right. But other than that, I don't know what to do with all this money just sitting here ^^. Though I know I can use them on gifts but even then, I wish there was more stuff in the music store or decor for your pad.

Will there be like an annual AMP awards in open mode? I feel like I need a purpose right now ^^".

Oh, I tried adding Seth but it gave me a traceback.

Clicked on Public Opinion in Story Mode. Got an error screen but I could ignore it and just go on.

Got an error on Beau's path right after the battle scene. Clicking ignore still allows the game to progress.

Ah, that would be the elusive ’ symbol! Thanks for finding it the hard way! :mrgreen:

Seth and Beau's errors are actually really easy to fix. Nice.

selenity, could you explain how you got that error? It's from you being in the music shop buying drums, but it couldn't find a drums player, so I'm curious if it's someone specific triggering this.

Which error? Is it the open memobrilia one or the open mode one? If it's open mode, I believe I added Marcus to the group but I didn't add him to drums, but rather to guitar or bass. I also had Emmett in the group as well.

And I don't know if I didn't made a save file, but I didn't see any of the characters I unlocked from Beau's or Emmitt's path. I also didn't see Wizz as well :(. I don't remember what OM characters I had, but they were Marcus, Joel and Natasha.

I made an update to how OM characters are unlocked between updates, so you may need to unlock them again. Sorry. :(
