Thanks, mate. It’s shaping up nicely.
To find Natsu you’ll need to run past the pond and follow the canyon to Greenfen Forest.
Then take the path to the village.
Sorry to hear it. Usually this is caused by antivirus software removing some core files required by the game engine.
NOTE: Don't forge to re-enable your antivirus software afterwards.
It may also be your zip software. Using something free like WinRAR or 7-zip should be fine.
Sometimes the inbuilt Windows extracter doesn't work so well.
Hi Black Finch,
I bought the original models from the Unity Asset Store and then hired artists to make heavy modifications. Tools used varied by contractor, but mainly Blender and Maya.
I then use my custom mesh combiner to assemble the characters with hair, body proportions, clothing, etc. The mesh combiner also rigs the skeleton accordingly.
I would recommend making your own character models instead of buying assets if you have the ability. It makes for a more unique looking game and is a fraction of the cost/effort.I’ll never do it this way again :)
I'm glad you enjoyed the alpha so far.
1) A "Continue" button for the main menu is coming. I am sorting out some bugs with loading of the game directly from the menu at the moment.
2) Rather than add a reset position feature I'd rather just fix the bug. Which H scene is it you are having issues with? Which girl?
You can look forward to some more open levels and more characters in the not too distant future.
I’m glad you enjoyed the game. It is still in alpha, but I have tried to put enough in the game that it is possible to see the potential of what the finished game could be. The bugs will be fixed one by one as I go.
The dev tools are just for me when testing the game. They’re no intended for players so there are side effects like you mentioned. You can use them if you like, but you use at your own risk :)
Akeno, the cat girl, is hungry. Ask yourself what cats like to eat. Maybe have a look around the pond.
If you get stuck again you could ask the community for hints in Discord https://discordapp.com/invite/xwm73bN
Thanks for the high praise. I’m currently working with 3D artists to rework the girls including boob sizes, genitals and clothing. Hopefully I can put the new models in the game by Christmas and then I can fix some of those pesky bugs.
I have not observed the RAM gobling issue myself, but I'll take a closer look.
I have not yet done an optimisation pass on the game so I'm not surprised it runs poorly on low spec PCs.
The good news is that the new female models, materials and textures will drastically reduce the size of the project and the required memory.
It’s a standard zip so your software should be fine.
Just make sure to down part 1 and part 2 zip files. It’s a multipart zip file you’ll have to download from the web page, not the itch.io launcher.
This is my fault. The latest builds are in a multi-part zip file. Turns out that the itch.io client launcher does not like that.
Go to the itch.io website and download both files.
I'm working on a permanent fix for this.
It's in the Greenfen Forest region, but don't waste your time here.
There is a more recent build here https://interlewdcreations.itch.io/monster-girl-tailes/devlog/85041/public-release-0221
You'll need to download a two-part zip file from the website though. The itch.io launcher won't work.
This was discovered recently. It has to do with large resolutions.
Try 1920 x 1080 and it should work. I should have a fix for the next version.
Alternatively you could try using the arrow keys to select the New Game button and press Enter.
If you have not played for a while I think you're in for a real treat.
You should be able to interact with characters and items by walking up to them and facing them directly. If they are in range then you will see an icon appear above their head.
Then just press E and you're interacting. Hooray!
If that does not work be sure to check that your antivirus has not annoyingly removed some game files.
If it has then disable your antivirus , unzip the files again then launch.
If you still have trouble email me some screenshots at firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll get you going.
Good luck, hunter.
Thanks for your enthusiasm.
The success of the Subverse Kickstarter campaign is encouraging for adult games. When I started making MGT I ruled out Kickstarter because back then I was a small fish with no real experience and I didn't think I could run a successful campaign.
It's very tempting to try Kickstarter now, but I have to think about those who have already pledged on Patreon. I need to find a way to be fair to them if I also raised money from Kickstarter.
It's something I'll will have to think about very carefully.
Hi jomeijackson. Thanks for the bug report. These are useful.
1. This combine items issue is a new one. I'll investigate further.
2. I am working on the Dialogue System to use flags, but it is currently under-featured. However, the Inventory System is clever enough to know not to add duplicates.
3. I'm currently trying to solve some pose issues in H scenes where arms and legs do things they really shouldn't :)
4. Not sure what you mean by "graphics do glitch". Can you be more specific?
The game is not yet optimised so some lower end computers can struggle.
I’m so glad you enjoyed it.
I still have to add the hint system & remove the boulders, but the Completion percentage should 100% if you have spoken to all the characters.
Update coming tomorrow ;)
I don’t have any official documentation, but I post regularly on Patreon with dev updates, discussions, polls, etc. it only costs $1 a month.
I am working on new game levels and performance improvements at the moment. Hopefully that alleviate your performance issues.
Ha! I hope you’re exaggerating.
You can see your game “Completion” in the Journal screen to see if you have reached the end of the currently available content.
However, this has been bugged for the last two releases. It’s fixed now, but I apologise if your experience was frustrating.
Thanks for the feedback, Demrottens.
I love hearing from the community.
Right now there is no Save/Load screen, but there is a Quick Save (Press F5) and Quick Load (Press F9) feature.
No need to play the whole game in one sitting.
I am sorry to hear about your overheating issues. I have yet to do a full performance pass.
Have you tried running the game with settings Fastest at 1280×720?
I'm currently working on the other game levels so you can go beyond that starting forest level. There are a couple of small technical issues to deal with first and as well as juggling some art contractors.
There is only so much one man can do :)
Thanks for playing,
Awwww. That’s so nice.
There are rules (mechanics) that determine success/failure. So yes it’s a game.
I appreciate your kind words. There is nothing I enjoy more than making games.
I have a feeling 2019 is going to turn out to be a good year for me and for the game.
