Okay! To solve the Memorabilia error I'm DELETING EVERYONE'S PERSISTENT DATA MWAAHAHA :twisted:

Actually, I'm just going to rename the variable on my end, so all of you will have to generate new data from the start. Only scene unlock data will be erased, other persistent data will remain.

Hopefully, I've fixed certain scenes not unlocking themselves, although some of those ??? mean you honestly did not unlock those scenes.

I'm also going to convert the Memorabilia into modern scene language to also circumvent these errors. This will delay the additional content by a few hours, I'm sorry. :(

0.60 is uploaded!

Image Image

Patch Notes:
- Added Open Mode Main Story
- Added The Blue Rose
- Added Collin

- Fixed Memorabilia
- Added prices to shop items that were missing them
- Fixed Pace's CD list error
- Fixed missing forum banner ad
- Fixed 'ascii' codec error
- Fixed typos

You'll need to re-download the game, or after updating delete "archive.rpa" and rename "archive.rpa.new" as "archive.rpa" inside your game folder.

You'll also notice that all of your scene unlock data is gone. I've re-structured the memorabilia so that A) it works for everyone and B) if I need to make changes to a character's scene list, I don't need to alter anyone else's.

Found out what was throwing those ASCII errors. I thought it was a forum post, but it was actually a stray symbol in the TXT file containing the song names.

We also released a blog post that explores why the game is free and how Starling got involved with the project. I plan on writing a blog about Rose and Collin sometime this week.

In regards to Open Mode's storyline:
Sebastian's later scenes will change based on who you romanced previous in Story Mode. Meaning, Dallas, Beau and Emmitt will have their own versions. In general, those guys will be more present in the story once I release their extended romances (in June). For now, they're off doing their own thing and Robin only references them a little. Sorry!

Just found out that if you skip the introduction, you won't unlock Beau or Emmitt in your Memorabilia, which is a problem only for those who are beta testing because normally you'd be forced to view the introduction at least once. I'll try to patch that tonight.

Also the "u" glitch on the top album chart. (thanks Snow Fluke!)

@lo6otia: I actually removed the game difficulty setting but I didn't update the questionnaire to reflect that. Oops! Thank you for your feedback! So interesting to see how people play the game.

Noo...so does that mean I'll have to replay Emmitt's path again? :O

Nah, just means you might need to skip through the introduction once more, or you can use the cheat "fuck this unlocking shit" which should hopefully unlock everyone possible.

Oo okay cool. I've started playing OM and for the gig objective, it might be helpful if you could specify what venue ^^. I got confused since I had opened all the venues at that point.

Also, in the modify band list, is it possible to see the member's stats after you hire them? Sometimes I would forget what stats I hired who for and wanted to compare to the others. It's a minor thing really, but it would be nice.

What objective? The only one I can think of is one where it says you must play at the "Event" venue.

I want to re-do the recruit list entirely so that it conveys information better, so this is definitely something I will add when I do.

I have a question about Faust - yesterday I unlocked him and now when I updated the game and played again through Dallas' path I hadn't met him at all. I tried not to change anything from my previous playthrough and yet he's not there. Does he show up randomly or did I just messed up something? I can't remember what was the date/ month of the bachelorette party to load a save that's near it :(
And I found something that I think needs an improvement - not enough save slots!!! I like to have many saves, these slots will do only for story mode :D

Yea, that event gig. When I saw that you need to play a gig, I played at the arena a couple of times but i didn't see the story progressed. So I had to play at each venue because I must have read that part a bit too fast ^^". I also want to romance Collin, but I don't want to lose all my money when I dump him for Wizz and to find out that I can't pursue Wizz so I have to start a new game and Wizz hates Robin so much because I'm throwing gifts at him and his affection only grows so little :'( .

I tried going back to my band, I tried loading up the band with Faust in it only to end up with my original band--which had Jammy in it. Maybe this is an error?

---Edit: Also encountered an error while going through Blue Rose's route. It's the restroom scene at the theater. It works after clicking ignore.

Wow, you're burning through 72 save slots? Well, you can always go forward an infinite amount of pages (you aren't capped) so you can get more that way.

Faust appears after April 1st in your 2nd year and then subsequently when you go shopping.

Wizz has a lot of chats that will raise his affection, so I had to balance it out with his gifts.

Why are you afraid of losing all your money? :|

I think there may be a bug with firing/hiring people that breaks saving. I'm going to research this. I believe I can fix it, just need some time.

Thanks for that bug report.

@Aleema: the reason for that is 'cause I really don't want to lose the town house. But I guess I would have to make multiple bands if I were to pursue each open mode romance. *sighs* I'm just really lousy at naming stuff.

And about Wizz, I guess that explains it. I was thinking that "man, is Wizz annoyed with Robin that much and that he can't let go of the throwing the cds to the floor incident??" I know they had a bad start but he's really making Robin grovel and spend lots of gifts on him. ^^"

I also made a mistake of giving Claudette a senseless gift and Emma some makeup...never before had I seen the friendship meter go down so fast. I didn't purchase the shopping assistant cause I was saving.
