If you encounter a game breaking bug, please send me your log file at sadambober@gmail.com right after this happens:

  • Windows: C:\Users\*username*\AppData\LocalLow\Glitch Pitch\Idol Manager\output_log.txt
  • Mac: ~/Library/Logs/Unity/Player.log

Your save file might help too:

  • Windows: C:\Users\*username*\AppData\LocalLow\Glitch Pitch\Idol Manager\data\auto_save.json
  • Mac: ~/Library/Application Support/Glitch Pitch/Idol Manager/data/auto_save.json

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

Known bugs and temporary fixes

Game crashes on new day:

1. Open the game -> Continue

2. Open "Policies" tab, "Idol Salaries", select "Manual"

3. You should be able to continue playing now

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

Broken game for Thai, Russian, Swedish (possibly moreusers:

Try setting your windows date format to English and restarting the game


I’m uncertain whether this is a bug or simply me being bad at the game, but I’ve tried to hold audtions for idols and though the game states that the producer is working on auditions, nothing happens even after waiting for a long time. Furthermore, no money was withdrawn from the character’s account. In case this is simply me not understanding the game, is there an in-game tutorial or guide of any sorts?

Developer

The game starts paused, so you probably just need to click the play button on the bottom left

(1 edit)

I’m already on the extra speed  button and things are happening on the screen. How long should it take (roughly) for a local audition to be triggered? I waited around 5 minutes and just now re-started the game.


Edit: I’m playing on a Mac btw, if that info helps

Developer

Green "A" icon should appear and you need to click it. Do you have it?

No, there is no such button :( When I hover over the character, this is the only information.

Developer

Okay, looks like it's some weird bug

Please try sending me your log file:
1. Open Finder
2. Click Go -> Go To Folder (or Shift + Command + G) and enter ~/Library/Logs/Unity/
3. There should be a file Player.log, please send it to me at sadambober@gmail.com

(+1)

I restarted the game and continued the same game (but with a different window size/quality). Not sure if that was the issue? Anyway, it is now working. I’ll still send the player.log though.

(+1)

I'm really enjoying the game and experience so far!  Two things that I've encountered (one of which is a bug and one that might be a limitation of the beta release):

1)  Sometimes the characters will just freeze, and no actions can be taken.  The progress bar and the date will just stop.  Exiting to the main menu or restarting the game fixes this.
2)  I can only release two singles.  When I go to click and release more, I can't.  I don't know if this is a limitation in the beta, or there is a cool-down period that I missed somewhere.

Developer

1) If this happens again, please send me your log file to sadambober@gmail.com

  • Windows: C:\Users\*username*\AppData\LocalLow\Glitch Pitch\Idol Manager\output_log.txt
  • Mac: ~/Library/Logs/Unity/Player.log

2) Maybe you just don't have enough money to release it? There should be a tooltip when you hover the release button. You can take a loan by clicking on your office -> Loans

Developer

2) Okay, at least one other person has this bug too, I'll fix it in an update soon

I don't know if this was the case for the other person who complained, but my problems started after I used the U key to unlock different genres and the like.  I started a new save and it was fine.

Developer

Should be fixed

i get bug 1 CONSTANTLY

i get to a certain point in the game, where ive done about 3 concerts and have about 8 singles out and the time prgression bug happens. If i save and reload i can prgress for about another few minutes then progression stops again. Shame  :(

Developer

Have you updated to 6.1?

Please send me your save file at sadambober@gmail.com

Win: C:\Users\*username*\AppData\LocalLow\Glitch Pitch\Idol Manager\data\manual_saves
Mac: ~/Library/Application Support/Glitch Pitch/Idol Manager/data/manual_saves 

yeah ive updated to 6.1

will send you the file asap

Hello when I tried to add a nickname the game freezed for me. I couldn't cancel the action or give the nickname. If it helps it was a brand new game with only my office in it. I have tried it twice in the same set-up and in both cases the game freezes. I also can't go to the home menu I have to force close my game.


edit:

This only happens when there is no producer in the office. Maybe grey out the nickname option if you haven't dropped the producer in yet?

(+3)

Whenever I click on continue the game replays the intro dialog then gets stuck with the main menu background still on the screen so basically I have to start from the beginning every time 

(1 edit) (+1)

I'm having the same issue, main menu remains on the background and continue just makes me restart. Doing a new game fixed this for now, but I had to restart everything from the beginning

(+1)

Happen to me twice. First time I didn't mind it much but as soon as I got 4 singles out and a steady flow of income just to reset my progress. It got annoying but I'm sure it'll get fixed soon.

This happened to me as well.  I hope that there will be permanent save files implemented at some point.

Developer(+2)

You can actually try using F5 / F9 to manually save/load the game for now

It's just happened to me again even after updating the game

I'm surprised to have seen no-one else mention this but in the intro section the ~flavor choices~ always float to the upper right corner for me. I'm playing in windowed mode, but yesterday when I attempted to restart a few times it also happened in fullscreen. Is this intentional?

This happened to me too, but I’m pretty sure it’s on purpose.

If so, my bad! I've never seen it this way.

Hi, I'm not sure if I did something wrong but no matter what I do I'm not able to get any auditions. I read some earlier comments and I clicked fast forward so it wasn't on pause, I changed the window settings, and I tried restarting it. But no matter what I do I don't get any auditions. It doesn't take out any money and it just shows that my character is auditioning but it wont ever stop. Also  idk if this is weird but the producer people aren't the ones allowed to audition in my game, only the main character person is allowed to.  Sorry for the inconvenience!

Developer

Are you on a mac? If so, I hope to fix this in an update soon.

I am on mac. Thanks for the swift reply. Cant wait until I can play this game~!

Developer

Should be fixed now, please update the game

I accelerated time at max just before my manager came to set up the policies.

It didn't stop the game time and when it was finished, I was one month later and bankrupt before I could do a thing...

I can't train my idols?
Even the Auto Practice button doesn't make them move to a room. They stay Idle all the time.
->Looks like the basic trainers are too dumb and can't train my idols. I had to hire better ones. There should be an explanation about the "Max level".

Also, if basic trainers can't train anyone, what use are they?

And I can't fire them, the button doesn't work... 40K to the drain each week.


I had messages in rapid succession saying that one of my idols recovered -0.07027027 stamina because of her trait. (Tenacious)

Hello, I encountered this bug a few times and it seems to trigger when I choose the main menu option in game and then try to reload my game from the main menu. The introduction dialogue plays again but this time over the picture of the idol, after the dialogue has finished the image persists, you can still click the pause/play buttons however none of the other options are accessible. 

Getting the same issue as well, although I never quitted to the main menu, I saved and closed the game altogether. Now whenever I click on continue, the game does the same thing it does to you: Plays the intro and then gets stuck. Judging from the budget shown down below, I guess it reset everything.

Shame to lose my old save but it ain't the end of the world.

(+2)

I encountered a few bugs on my gameplay (started two new ones to confirm the issues).

  1. When a player hits the U button to unlock all genres of the music, the players are unable to release a new single. 
  2. There are several times when the player is unable to do anything and the most you could do is exit out (the game essentially freezes and the pause button is not active)
  3. There are moments when players try and drag the new song/media/event into their respective rooms, but unfortunately the mouse is replaced with the icon and players are unable to get rid of it and then after a few seconds the game freezes and crashes (at times). 
  4. Sometimes when conducting an audition, the A button does not pop up when the green bar is finished, therefore players have to restart the game. 

So after the intro, the menu screen overlay doesn't disappear. I can still see the game a little behind it.I used the fix you stated above but my save was basically restarted (Idk) if it is intentional . In the json file, before applying the fix the  "story_policies" is missing from the code.  Idk if you know that already, but I figured I'd add it in there.  It seems that for my game, the "story_policies" needs to be added after each  new save.  Also, when I opened my new-new  save, the intro played again (with the main menu pic in the background). So far, everything else seems to be working for me.

(+2)

Concert tasks can't be canceled without breaking the event.

Plan a concert
Assign a task (rehearsal) to a staffmember (choreographer)
Cancel the job on the staff member (X on room avatar)
No new assignment is possible. Concert taskes are locked.

Only option is to cancel the concert and redo.

Bug is reproducible and survives savegame reload.

Gameversion 1.1/Win

Developer

The save/load bug should be fixed for good now: https://sadambober.itch.io/idol-manager/devlog/57095/update-beta-12

It hasn't been fixed, just started up the game after playing last night and turning off my laptop and lost my progress yet again

Actually it has, I think

(+5)

I've had an issue with the mental stamina of one of the idols.  I don't think it would be possible to get to this point if not for some sort of bug.  (Mogichan's mental stamina)


Is it possible to do any 'media' activity yet? If so, I've been consistently unable to do so. I had a similar issue with being unable to produce singles that's now entirely fixed, so maybe it'll fix itself, but does anyone have any input on this? Am I overlooking something obvious?

(+1)

Did you make sure to type in a name at the top?  

Yes, I was able to create media a couple days ago (Haven't played the two small updates yet though).  It took me about 5 minutes to see that there was a name required at the top for media (I kept thinking I was missing some research option).  It seems this can easily be missed with media as with a single you have to name it before you do anything else.  With media your attention is immediately taken to all the options and then you are looking at the bottom right wondering why you can't continue when you forgot to type a name at the top left.  The setup should probably be similar to a single or have a hover if you put your cursor over continue saying what you are missing.

Yup, this was it. Menu blindness is real, folks. Thanks!

(+3)



Even after meeting the requirements for the Level 7 promotion, it still doesn't let me level up. When the show is cancelled, it stops being green. 

(1 edit) (+1)

After downloading the new update. I started a new game after the autosave bug. It appears that I can't take out a loan from the bank unless I take the instant money. And on top of that, after taking out the initial 5mil loan for one month, I owe the bank 6.5mil a week. Now the bank says I'm -15mil.

Also, the assets are messing up in my game lol.

(1 edit)

I can't fire the trainers...and I was wondering, in this ver. Of the game the girl also graduating? And when a years pass, the girl don't supost to grown older? (Sorry for my bad english!)

You need to acquire scandal points to be able to fire the trainers! I know that sounds strange, and I don't quite understand how it works myself, but after a 2-point scandal I was able to fire one trainer, which brought me back to 0 points.

....that why it's say 2 point scandal...I thought that if I will fire them I will get this point!LOL Thank you for the explanation ^^
Developer

The idea is that you can't just fire people for no reason, especially in Japan. So it's like you're blaming them for scandals.

In the December update we'll add a second option to fire staffers with severance pay of 12 monthly salaries

(1 edit) (+1)

But there is no probationary period and if they're useless, we're stuck.

By "useless", I mean when I hired a couple of basic trainers and tried to make them train my basic idols (beginning of the game), it was impossible: "max level 1". But it wasn't told before I hired them and they could do nothing except research.

If I wanted to improve the dance/singing of my idols, I had to recruit better trainers, but I had no money to build new rooms... and was stuck with 2 useless trainers draining my cash.

With a probationary period (or more info before I hired them), I wouldn't have had that problem.

(+2)

I loaded my save to find that my manager research points were in the negative thousands. Also after releasing my 3rd single all of my idol's mental health when into the negative hundreds despite them having green physical stamina. The mental health  bug is not really effecting my game play at the moment but I can't research anything from the managers page :(

(+1)

whenever I try to hire more than one idol/hire additional idols if I just start with one my game freezes and resets my progress 

(+3)

when I reached level 10 in production with my secretary, she produces -20000000 research per day

(+1)

when I load a saved game the idols I push up disappear from the frame (but are no longer selectable, I guess it's still active) so I can select 3 new ones

(+1)

There is a Aavatar mismatch between the menu list avatar and the Audition/Salary avatar


(+1)

The game stops for me at March 19 2023, I'm on Mac and it always freezes whenever I unpause the game. 

actually its freezing again and during another date, I have to force quit the game

Developer

Hey, can you please send me your log file at sadambober@gmail.com ?

~/Library/Logs/Unity/Player.log

(+1)

There seems to be a dupe glitch for idols. When setting them into formation, you can click rapidly on a face and it will replace the spot with another idol even though that idol has already been selected. It seems that the stats also apply to the song as well, per idol you have duped. I only have six idols hired at this moment.

(+1)

There's a bug in loans:
- Go to Loans - Bank, type in the maximum amount
- Go to Fujimoto and you can lend the bank's maximum (10x more) from Fujimoto at 0% intrest rate.


(+1)

The idols that you are "pushing" disappeared when you close the game and then continue the same game save



When you choose three new idols to push, the old three idols you have pushed before you close the game cannot be selected. (The following picture shown that only Momona and Anju's name card can be selected be cause they are either not being pushed now, or not being pushed before the game is saved and closed. The other idols name card is slightly darker and cannot be selected)

(+2)

I can not advance beyond the concert level even though I have held multiple concerts. I reached multiple milestones beyond that but I can not move past the concert objective that is still greyed out. The bug might also apply to world tours, since I have had one of those as well.

(3 edits) (+1)

If an idol is currently practicing vocals or dance, they sometimes can't be added to a concert lineup (neither songs nor talk breaks work). Not sure what triggers it, it doesn't seem to happen consistently.

Edit: This also happens when adding idols to lineups for media (internet, tv, radio shows). Exact same problem, idols currently practicing can't be selected.

Both my producer and managers research points are in the negative.

(+1)

Sometimes when i save and quit, I come back a few hours later and my money would be in the negatives. and then it'll take away about $5,000,000 a day, not week.

(+1)

I have been dying to play this game--And now I can't seem to do ANYTHING with it? I'm on a Windows. Without the 'cheats' someone wrote up in the forum I wouldn't be able to even release singles (need the research points). I can't hire anyone (except from auditions for talent). NO training at all, no ability to get research from choreographers/etc. Am I doing something wrong or is that just ... The way it is right now?

-- How do you know if a single has released?

----> I really loved the ways Kairosoft (a mobile developer) had things 'produced' in-game. It's not really 'copying' or plagiarism since it's a general concept, but they would show a progress bar and allow you to put finishing touches on something if you wanted. 

-----> It could be cool to spend a bit for a release party or something for the girls that are in the single for mental health.


We're told that we get the FIRST FLOOR free, and yet I think I can only use the THIRD floor first and then can use some others? It's really confusing. 

I'm sure I'll have more one day... Man, I want to work on this game as a writer so much :> 

Developer

Does time progress in your game? Like, do days change in the bottom left? It could be a bug

You should get research points when a staffer is assigned to a room and they don't have any tasks (like training or producing singles)

Maybe you can't hire anyone because you don't have enough money, you can take a loan by clicking on your office (or there's a cheat - press Y to get 1M)

Yes, time passes. I have done the cheats (like I said), but even having soooo much money and sooooo many research points I can only hire myself or hold auditions. 

Am I missing the place to hire people? It doesn’t matter which rooms I’ve added, I can’t find hiring them as options. 

Developer

It's supposed to be like this:

1. Open the "Staff" tab, click "Hire"

2. Click a staffer you want to hire

3. Drag & drop them into a room

(+1)

Aha! It wasn't intuitive for me (perhaps it was me). I thought that "HIRE" was more of a  title not a button. 

(+1)

I don't know if its a bug or not, but all my idols are with low mental stamina, like -200.

Developer

Probably not a bug, we'll only be adding systems related to stamina in the January update (like injuries, depression, doctors, etc), so right now it does nothing

(+1)

Hi not sure if this has been mentioned yet, but I started a new game recently and the first few deals were offered to idols I had in the previous game - it eventually moved to only the idols in my current roster.

(+3)

Two things

1: I exceeded the 2.147b mark for revenue at a concert, causing it to turn into a negative and give me a 2.3b loss instead of profit. It still came up green on "revenue" as if it didn't realise.

2: I got this event (picture below) but none of the options worked when I clicked on them and I was forced to close the game.

#2 also happened to me.  I had to close the game when the dating scandal event popped up because I was unable to choose anything.

I get this same bug as well

(+1)

I just did an election event.  I don't think this was intentional, but some of the girls had negative votes.  Here are the number results of votes for the top 10.

1) 9,569,221

2) 2,917,046

3) 2,752,242

4) 1,358,720

5) 901,061

6) 365,029

7) -169,674

8) -326,684

9) -362,195

10) -398,769

(+1)

I held a concert to be released for an election but after the election was over the concert button says 'in production' rather than a countdown and once the election was ready again, the concert option was still in production. I've restarted the game, but it still won't fix.

Developer

Hey, if you want you can send me your save file at sadambober@gmail.com and I'll try to fix it

Windows: C:\Users\*username*\AppData\LocalLow\Glitch Pitch\Idol Manager\data\auto_save.json
Mac: ~/Library/Application Support/Glitch Pitch/Idol Manager/data/auto_save.json

i cant make shows or singles, am i missing something or is it a bug?

Developer

First of all, there's a known bug in this version that breaks the game for users in some regions, setting your date format to English might help: https://pbs.twimg.com/media/Dvv-hiBXQAE_JU5.jpg

But generally, this is how you make singles:

1. Click the play button in the bottom left. If days don't change, then it's definitely a bug.

2. Build rooms, hire staff, drag and drop them into the rooms

3. Wait until they earn enough research points. Unlock a genre, etc in the Research tab

4. In the singles tab, click the green button at the top "New Single". Enter single's title. Select genre, choreography, lyrics and marketing options. If it's not a digital single, enter number of copies

5. Drag and drop idols into formation

6. Drag and drop the single into rooms with staffers (make sure they're not busy with training idols or something else)

7. After all 4 staffers are done, click Release. If you don't  have enough money to release the single, you can take a loan by clicking on your Producer and selecting "Loan"

(+1)

While i was in the process of firing employees two of the employees glitched on me. As you can see I only have two assistants but, four are occupying rooms.

Hellotodaz


I have problem with crash.

It just comes to certian time freeze and it crashes.

I bought game  today.

Since the first election my game keep crashing :/

Occasionally if I max out money and hype in a concert it will say that I made -2 billion yen, essentially killing that save.

(+1)

I'm pretty sure this is a bug at least, but every few days, a certain idol has an age penalty where she loses on stat. it is very often, whereas the other girls lose very rarily

Hello,

I just start the game and I didn't get the introduction, I can brievely saw a discussion bar appear but that's it then the game start


Developer

There's a bug in this version in some regions (Thai, Russian and Swedish are confirmed), this could be it. Try setting your windows date format to English and restarting the game

thanks it solve my problem

I just downloaded the latest update, and the little flask icons showing research points accumulating weren't displaying for coaches  when they're idle, but instead displayed when they started coaching or producing (research points are still only earned when they're idle).

https://puu.sh/CFLz6/3d0e338481.png

Edit: OK, update: they weren't displaying at all when they were idle, then started displaying when they got busy, and now they're just displaying permanently - both when they're busy AND when they're idle.

Son of Edit: This is also happening with the Manager in my game now:

https://puu.sh/CFLMm/82166e99d0.png

Grandson of Edit: Started happening to the producer as well:

https://puu.sh/CFLYN/998ecfbb31.png

(1 edit)

Another one: looks like a white rectangle is sometimes acting as a placeholder image whenever there aren't at least 3 girls in a formation (this also happened when I launched an internet show with a rotating cast - 3 white rectangles). This was a single with just 2 idols in the formation. A single with just 1 idol didn't have this problem.

https://puu.sh/CFNBa/7f68ef6216.jpg

When I started the saved game again, the coaches appeared as if they were not assigned to a room and I can't accept the job offers either.

Developer

Please send me your save file at sadambober@gmail.com , it'll help me find out what happened and I can probably fix your save file too

  • Windows: C:\Users\*username*\AppData\LocalLow\Glitch Pitch\Idol Manager\data\auto_save.json
  • Mac: ~/Library/Application Support/Glitch Pitch/Idol Manager/data/auto_save.json

This happens to me consistently as well every time I restart the game.

The last 4 staff hired will always appear in the staff list as if not assigned to a room, despite still being assigned in the room itself. You can fix it by clicking each room and removing them manually, then reassigning.

It's always the 4 most recently hired staff members.

https://puu.sh/CG2nw/69ae164d93.png

#3: not sure if bug or intentional, but one of my idols got depressed. I dragged her to the doctor's office for treatment, which reduced the # of days she'd need to recover. I tried to drag her again for more treatment, but it wouldn't work (I'd drag, drop, and treatment wouldn't begin at all). My only recourse then was to put her on hiatus (which I can't cancel out of, so she's completely out of commission).

Developer

It actually is intentional, you should only be able to drag and drop her to a doctor with a higher level. I might change it in the next update though.

Okay, thank you!

(1 edit)

And another one!

After hiring some idols in an audition (was nationwide and I hired 4 out of the 5, not sure if that's relevant) the dialogue for the idol wouldn't come up, and clicking around would just click the background elements as if the idol wasn't there:

https://puu.sh/CFQU7/b75fedb493.jpg

Just in case it's relevant, this idol's trait is Forgiving and she had a gold background and a rating of 80.

I'm not sure what triggered it, I'll try to reproduce it again.

Edit: Happened again in another audition, I didn't do anything particularly different. 2 hires, first one was gold, the other was silver.

Hello, I've been experiencing this bug ( it might just be me) since the elections update.  I've been wanting to have an election  and I'll have both a concert and single finished and ready to release but when I try to start a special event for elections it'll say that I need to have a concert in production. I've tried creating an election while the concert is still in the production phase but that doesn't work either. Again this might not be a bug and I might be doing it wrong, if I am could someone please tell me the proper way to start an election?  Thanks!

(1 edit)

Hi again.

One of my idols is, um, very... very depressed.

https://puu.sh/CG1dD/9cb35b6c79.jpg

How this happened was that she had 52 physical stamina, and I took a photoshoot job that cost 51 stamina (I specifically chose her because she had the stamina). Unsure what her mental stamina was before that, but I do know it wasn't low.

Edit: Oh! When I closed and reloaded the game due to the bug below, her mental stamina was changed to 0.

And another one:

https://puu.sh/CG1RU/c9072752e9.jpg

This happened because I got a message about scalpers selling tickets for a concert while I already had a message about a scandal (the game wasn't paused and is still running in the background). After I dealt with the scalper one, the screen looks like this and the other one is gone.

I can't click anything or cancel out of this screen, so the only solution was to force close the game.

(+1)

I have a similar issue after trying to view a nationwide idol search campaign. Just stuck blurred, with nothing to do but force quit.

(+1)

Is it okay to keep posting individually or should I just condense all of these into one post by editing it? I'm just posting as I find them.

Dates on the special event log seem a little wonky.

Elections are all displaying the date of the most recent election.

Concert dates seem to show when the concert was conceived rather than when it happened (it happened with the election, I was waiting for the 6mo cooldown).


https://puu.sh/CG2ql/5b2f91646b.jpg

I have the same issue with elections. It shows the day they occurred as the current date in game

Well, I think its a bug.

Always when I open a saved game, the auto proposals and singles, stopped. I need to activate the autoproposals and start again the singles.

Not sure if this is a bug or if it just isn't included in the game yet, but I can't seem to graduate my idols? Maybe I just haven't been playing it long enough but I wanted to graduate my older idols and I just don't know how

Developer

Yeah, this is not in the game right now

(+1)

I found an error

When I opened my saved game, the coaches were not in their rooms.

I assigned them manually, but I could not assign a room to some coaches.

I closed the game and reopened it, but everything remained the same.

(1 edit) (+1)

I saved after releasing a single that was attached to an election and when I opened the game back up, the concert/election never started. It's been a few mos since the single released.

Edit: Closed and opened the game and the concert immediately started. can't see the faces of the idols on the side though

(+1)

I'm having the same problem, excepting re-starting the game didn't fix it :(

I found these mistakes when playing:

  1. The game is pasma after playing it 2 or 3 hours, it stays frozen the time and you can not do any action, the game does not close only remains frozen.
  2. When starting a new game (you must have played before a game of this game) and start taking actions with the idols you can notice that there are status messages from the idols of the previous game.
  3. When you release some songs and press quickly to jump the messages of the progress states and the stars, you can see that progressively the place where the messages appear are phased out.
  4. When continuing a game, assign work places again, it can be only one part or the whole template.
(+1)

I encounter a bug when playing :

When you create a new game, sometimes you get events concerning idols from a previous game, you can also have buisness proposal for idols from a previous game

(1 edit) (+1)

the "auto" is deactivated while you play.

whenever a disc is released, when I schedule a vote, all the idols fall into depression (mental 0) and when the concert is activated all arrive at -30 or -100 mental health.

Developer(+2)

This one is actually intentional, it can happen if the girl has the "meme queen" trait

(2 edits) (+2)

One of the things I've had happen over the past few days is that sometimes if I drag an idol to the stylist, I can't drag anything anywhere else (singles, concerts, other idols) I drag it there but nothing happens. 
Also is there a limit on how many staffers can be on auto-practice/styling? Originally I had stylist/choreo/vocal on auto. I added another stylist and even when auto styling was selected, it won't work.  It works if I drag an idol to the stylist tho. 

Edit:Can we get a warning telling us our election isn't ready if we try to start to attached concert without putting it through production/ logistics? I forgot to do it and then was unable to do so after the concert had already happened. I cancelled it lol

I noticed that after the 2nd floor, I am unable to drag any idols or singles to staffers in those areas (even after quit and restart).

I think for negotiations, even if you get a 0%, it still changes the amount paid, sometimes more sometimes less. Is this intentional?

Pushes are empty upon restart of the game also

Hi it's me again this game is my life n ow.

A weird thing happened where all of my singles disappeared. They are still listed in my save file . If I create a new single, I am able to use formations from past singles. This happened after I closed and restarted because I was unable to drag and drop my election to production or logistics.

I had a single in progress and it shows that as well


So after the update, I was able to see the singles by switch from the "production" tab to the "released" tab.

(+2)

After changing policies for the first times, most of them won't change again. They do appear highlighted in the droplist but the change isn't reflected at the root. 

Ex : i first changed idol salarie on "low" and later came back to make it "satisfied" but the change wouldn't work how many time i tried andit was the same for most of the options.

Hello! I seem to have an issue where cancelling a show will have whatever profit it was at still affect me every week after it's fully cancelled. So if I cancel a show because it's losing money, I now seem to be forever losing that money. And if I cancel a show that's doing well, I'm always gaining money off of it.

I guess maybe cancelling a successful show and still making money can make sense if we were airing reruns or something maybe but it's a real pain when you just forever lose money every week and there's nothing you can do about it if it's a failed show.

Hey I just wondered are you checking what day it says the last episode will be? It actually doesn't cancel until the end of the season

(+2)

Sorry, I probably should've clarified more info about this. The shows are fully cancelled, in that they aren't waiting to be cancelled at the end of the season. I know that radio and TV shows have to wait to be cancelled, but Internet shows cancel instantly. However the current bug I've found seems to happen no matter which kind of show you use, even after they're all fully cancelled.

To replicate, launch an Internet show and then cancel it after launching. You can now look at your media profits and see it still affects your total profit even though it shouldn't since it's cancelled. You can also check this by adding all the profits of your past/current shows up and comparing it to your media profits to see that even shows cancelled years ago still affect your profits.


I've also now noticed that the shows don't seem to take into account revenue vs budget calculation correctly, which could maybe be related. Basically, all radio and Internet shows will always earn money and TV shows will always lose money.

For instance, when I launch a no host TV show, it has a budget of 100k yen a week. That's all fine. But then it launched, it says it earns 128k revenue initially. The amount of profit I earn from the show should be my revenue minus my budget, so my profit should be 128k minus 100k, which is 28k. Yet, for some reason, the game will say I'm actually losing 128k yen a week from the show, which is a bug for a number of reasons lol. One, it should be 28k affecting me, not 128k. Two, I should be getting plus my profit, not minus my profit (at least in this case where I'm supposed to have profit).

With internet and radio shows though, the budget isn't subtracted from the revenue and the profit isn't turned negative like TV shows are. Meaning that, no matter what, internet and radio shows will always earn money, even when they shouldn't. For example, I have an early internet show that has a 10k budget but only earns 5.6k in revenue. Profit = Revenue - Budget = 5.6k - 10k = -4.4k. So I should be losing 4.4k a week from the show, and if it doesn't pick up enough to ever make a profit then I should cancel it. But what happens currently is the budget isn't subtracted from the revenue and the revenue is just given to me as profit.


This issue mixed with the fact that cancelled shows will still affect your profits means that currently you can make a bunch of internet shows and immediately cancel them after their release (which you can do with internet shows). Since it only needed you and a sales manager to produce, it's really cheap and easy to make. Since your revenue is treated as profit without subtracting budget, even if it's not successful it'll earn you money. And since you'll still earn the profit after it's cancelled, you can keep earning the money without your idols losing stamina to run the show.

(1 edit) (+1)

Alright, after testing it out a bit more it looks like the values you see when launching the show actually don't affect your profit in any way. For example, I just made a novice host internet show of the entire cast and when the launch screen showed the revenue and budget amounts it said the show made 31k in revenue and the weekly budget was 20k, which should mean the profit it gets every week (at least at the beginning) is 11k. But once the launch screen goes away and I check the media page for its profit values, it says its making 175k...and I have no idea where that value came from. I'm thinking maybe your fame at the time can heavily affect it (I'm at 10 star fame) so the revenue it would actually get is a lot higher than it looks initially, but if that's the case this should be reflected in the launch screen too.

Also I've now found that even internet shows can launch in the negatives too, but the only real way I've found to trigger it is to higher an expensive host like a 10 star host. And I also had a no host TV show that actually made money...but maybe that has to do with whatever weird thing happens to your profit after the launch screen. So I don't know what's happening but something random happens to the profit values after launch and if it's not that expensive of a show you will more than likely earn a profit that doesn't seem at all based on the launch revenue but heavily affected by weekly budget and some random value. I think just the revenue isn't actually factored into the calculation of profit maybe and this causes more expensive shows to be massive failures? It's all kinda weird from what I've tested so far. I'll let you know if I figure anything else out.

Edit: ALSO the TV show I launched that actually made me money let me immediately cancel it without waiting for the season to end. Did it maybe launch an internet show maybe but labelled it as a TV show? Or are TV shows just able to cancel immediately for the first few episodes?

I can't seem to upgrade the Promotion action past level 6 because of the fame point requirement for variety shows.

To reach level 7 promotion, you have to accept a variety show that gives you over 3000 fame points and a drama role that gives you 5000 fame points a week. The drama role requirement registers fine, but the variety show requirement never seems to work. I've even maxed out my variety contacts at level 10 and accept a ton of big variety show deals now that more than exceed the 3000 fame point requirement, but the requirement never moves up from zero.

(+4)

Looks like I can't level up my performance to past level 8 too. Level 9 requires you to do an election and have the votes for the #1 idol exceed 50k votes. I just had an election that far exceeded that requirement but it still says it's at 0/50k.

(+1)

There is weird bug with media/shows
If I make multiple shows (doesn't matter if simultaneously or one after another), it always overwrites the casts of the other shows.
So for example, when the bug first appeared, two of my girls had three shows instead of one.

I have to try a bit more, but the solution for me seems to save and load after each show. While it doesn't fix the old shows, the new shows cast will be correct.

(+3)

I've run into a bug where I've hired several new doctors, but I can't see them in my staff roster. They're still costing me money, though, and cost money to hire.

Developer

Huh, that's a weird one. Are they still not there if you relaunch the game? Or maybe try changing sort/view options (at the top of the staff tab)

(+1)

I experienced this before but it seemed to only happen after I have so many hired staff and I try to hire a bunch more staff. Sometimes I can see one new staff member but none of the others I just hired. Usually fixed it by saving and restarting and they'd be there waiting to be put in a room.

I have a bug where time has stopped progressing in one of my saved games.  Doesn't matter if I fast forward it or not.  I accidentally opened it in a previous build, and now that game won't progress at all.

Developer

Please send me your broken save file at sadambober@gmail.com, I can probably fix it

Save files are here (auto_save.json or manual_saves\*number*\save.json):

Proposal seems to be stuck for me, changed it only once since starting the game but havnt been able to change it for a long time, at least two months have passed since last change. 

Edit: scratch that, none of my policies are changin. I can pick a different policy in the dropdown menu but they dont change.

Not sure if this is a bug or not, but at certain point all of my idols suddenly became depressed, at 0 mental stamina, or around that number (1-5) for no reason, concerts were going well, nobody complained, we had one girl who was caught with a boy but nothing happened, just some buzz, I tried to quickly recover and hired more new talents but they also got dropped to 0 mental stamina one or two days later. So either something serious went down and no one told me, or its kinda bugged out.

Every now and then, I'm producing a single and say I want to get the choreo made, if I drag it to the choreographer it won't let me? I can drag it to her, the icon'll disappear but nothing happens. Similarly, dragging idols would ocassionally not drop onto the room but sometimes the icon of the girl remains. It stays like that until I somehow manage to drag her or another idol successfully or reload the save. Sometimes, usually for the marketing of a single, it won't let me click on the single to drag to the staff. I end up having to cancel it and redo it since restarting doesn't fix it (as far as I'm aware).

Edit: I actually managed to fix this issue (editing the save file wherein if girls wasn't -1, change that to -1 and status to 0). Without fixing it, apparently the staff members weren't assigned to a room but time still stopped.

(+1)

I'm having the same issue. I can't progress the development of any of my singles, the staff just refuses to work on them. Reloading the save seems to fix it, but having to reload every 10 minutes or so is very annoying.

I am having the same problem

Just updating.

The issue seems to occur most often when I have three layers / floors and I use the highest floor. For example, offices on 1st floor, studio and dance on 2nd, doctor on 3rd.  As long as I do not use the doctor on the third floor, I can send my singles through the offices, dance, and studio. The second I send one of my Idols to the doctor, I can no longer work on my singles at all.

Just a few things I've encountered while playing the game, feel free to ignore if you've already been notified of this:

1. Game freezes up after picking up an avatar from time to time - requires restart
1.5 After cancelling a job, there is a chance that you can't drag in a new job
2. Character in two places - usually because auto and manual action are performed at the same time
3. While during hiatus, I can still perform Activities/Contracts - don't know if intentional
4. Auto styling turns off every reload

(1 edit) (+1)

Japanese characters are not displayed correctly after game reload.

My group name contains japanese characters and it was displayed correctly, but after closing the game and opening it again I get '?' in place of japanese characters in dialogs.

"Release" button for releasing a single is disabled when it has to be active.

One of the idols was on hiatus and I canceled her hiatus to release a single. But "Release" button was disabled until I pressed "Formation" and without changing anything in the formation pressed "Continue". In the screenshot you can see that all the songs use the same formation but some can't be released until I press "Formation" and "Continue".

I had the game just stop at the audition background the first time I tried a regional (middle) audition. Had to close the game window and then start it up again on the autosave to be able to proceed. Sent you a bug report via e-mail, just in case.

In the previous version the moment the staff asked the policies questions could happen after a while has passed(a few weeks usually which is quite long already). In this new version it just doesn't happen anymore ; i already have  many idols and a few months already have passed but i can't change my policies because until the event the button stay grayed.


Did you already hire the office manager? I did not do that at all when I started playing the game, so I did not even realize the policies talk was a thing until a couple of restarts later.

Of course, i always start a game with two manager, a doctor and sometime a beautician  (my two cent of wisdom, high level doc is life =).  As for the lack of information, i suppose the tutorial priority is quite low as all the core mechanic are yet to be completed.

Just checking. I guess the devs will have to answer that one, then :/

Developer

It also needs a dance staffer, did you have one?

Thanks, that was it !  

I don't remember this character being in the policies event, is it new or did i just forgot her ?

Developer

Haha, yeah, she’s always been there.

I’ll add a tooltip for this or something 

So I think the elections are no longer working. When I try to do an election, even if I have a single and concert in production, it shows me the stats of a past concert. I am not able to select the broadcast method for elections.  Idk if you can see but behind the concert stat block, it tells me i need to have a concert in production.  When I click continue, it creates the election, but I am not able to drag it to production or logistics

When I came back today, the game was fine and I was able to create the election however, the concert only started after save&quit and then after the election the game froze

Oh thank you. That worked.

I've run into an issue with Permanent Cast and shows. The shows aren't being assigned properly to the idols. I've first noticed this when I setup 3 shows (2 internet and 1 radio), and found that all 3 shows were assigned to the same 3 idols despite the fact that I had created them using 9 different idols as cast for the 3 shows. I had then canceled all the shows and re-launched new ones but then noticed that none of the idols had any shows under their profile.


I created a new save to replicate this issue:

  1. Hire 9 idols.
  2. Research Travel topic.
  3. Launch a travel show with the first 3 idols (shows were assigned properly)
  4. Research Hobby topic
  5. Launch a hobby show with the next 3 idols (both shows were then assigned to these idols under their profile).

I've had this happen with less idols. It gets kind of annoying when my first group doesn't seem to exist, and my second group ends up hosting all the shows and dying.

I've hit a bug kinda like the one Kaiyurin mentions a few posts back...

All of the sudden thing (idols, songs, events...) will become undraggable.  (Or undroppable, since I can grab them and move them.  The items in the doctor's window light up.)  It requires a save-and-quit to reset.   Things will be normal for a minute or two, and then it happens again.

(1 edit) (+1)

Update:  Yeah, this should be called the draggable-but-not-droppable bug.  I can grab something, and the cursor icon changes, but when I hover over a drop location and drop nothing happens. 

This happens on all items on the main (building/staff) screen.  It does not happen on the (single) formation screen.

Bug still present in Beta 5.1.  It took about an hour or so of game play to appear, and then steadily becomes more frequent as play time increases.

Saving and reloading clears the problem.

(+1)

Interesting...  I was about to post that I started a new save and encountered the same pattern - no problem at first, then it popped up after I'd played for a while.  But I had added a doctor on the floor above the "rent free" floor before encountering it - just as BrassCrassus posted just a few minutes ago.

Ayup...  Reloaded the save in my first reply to myself, and everything went fine, no "bugs" at all.  And then as soon as I used a doctor on the floor above the "free" floor - boom.  The bug appeared again.

Ayup, started a new save - this time I put the doctors on the floor under the "free" floor.  As soon as I dragged a girl to the doctor's (man, that sounds bad), the problem popped up again.

Seems to be confirmed to be related to dragging to the doctor.

Tested and confirmed, this only happens with dragging to the doctor.  Does not happen when dragging to trainers.

I can't relaunch a show. I finished the concept and production work, but then I can't select the relaunch button.

(3 edits)

I think this is a Bug. If you make a concert with 100k ticket price (maximum) , the attendance is higher than with lower price, and always is worth, even if hardcore fans complains.

If I'm not clear enough I can provide a Screenshot with the issue.

Edit: I gave a concert in every country and the requeriment for level up promotion doesn't pop

Edit2: Want to host a radio show with a newcomer co-host doesnt work

The "auto" feature disables randomly (training or doctor, in office works OK)

(+1)

A fun one with the doctors...  They aren't choosing the lowest physical stamina patients.

(1 edit)

I'm back again (lol). It seems as though I'm not the only one experiencing what DerekL now calls the 'draggable-but-not-droppable' situation. Fortunately, it isn't as frequent as it previously was. Strangely, for most of the people facing the same issue its after they drag someone to the doctor from another floor— afterwards it stops working. For me, so far, I've only ran into this issue again when dragging to the doctors at my lowest floor (it isn't the lowest floor, as seen in the image). 

I was going to mention that the issue only seemed to be present with those two doctors, however I discover later on that this seems to trigger the rest of the staff members to be undropped to. The rest of my doctors, which are much higher up don't seem to trigger this issue (as I mentioned earlier, I dragged an idol to one of the lower doctors; did not work, however I managed to drop her to the higher up doctors. But the issue returned).

Edit: It seems like it now no longer just apply to the lowest doctors— rather I can drop idols to the doctors and then dropping stops working.
(1 edit)

I did a few tests, since this prevents me from actually playing the game. Looks like dragging an idol to a doctor's office will lock all rooms to the right and below it. I'm able to drag again once I take the idol out of the doctor's office.

So, If you build your doctors offices all the way to the right, it should keep the bug from happening? Time to test.

(2 edits)

I meant all rooms to the right and all floors below. You're going to have to place all doctor's offices at the lowers floors and drag idols in order like the image, also wait for everyone to finish before dragging idols again.


Cancelling a TV show seems to show the wrong cancellation date.
My show was supposed to be cancelled on 9 April according to the tooltip, but the season is not yet over so it's still going one day later.

It seems the tooltip for general info (total new fans, next episode date and such) also showed 9 April for the next episode. It finally got canceled one week later on 16 April, so the tooltips just seem to be one week off from the correct date.

I'm having an issue where the game just freezes. Everyone just stops whatever task they are doing. Saving and reloading does not work.

Developer

Have you updated the game to 5.1?

Please send me your broken save file at sadambober@gmail.com

Your log file will help too:
Windows: C:\Users\*username*\AppData\LocalLow\Glitch Pitch\Idol Manager\output_log.txt
Mac: ~/Library/Logs/Unity/Player.log

I updated the game, but i saw using a save file from the old version. So I just started fresh! 

I just had my first chance to test Idol Manager. I'm on Linux ( KDE Neon, Ubuntu 18.04-based ) but I suspect this is not Linux related. Apparently the game doesn't seem to support UltraWide screens very well:

https://imgur.com/a/kWh5Y9V

Even though the option is offered on startup to select my native resolution ( 3440 x 1440 ). When I select a lower-than-native resolution and windowed mode, the game seems to start fine, so I'll just give it a go like that ;-)

Developer

Oh, thanks, I didn't know 21:9 options are available in the launcher. Yeah, you'll have to stick with 16:9 or 16:10 for now

Bankruptcy countdown timer resets after game reload.

When I have a negative balance I can see countdown timer: "(bankruptcy in 28 days)". But after saving game and loading it I don't see any timer. And then bankruptcy timer starts all over again from 31 days.

Anyone else experiencing their Idols mental stamina plummeting?  Every single idol becomes depressed almost immediately after hiring them, it's infuriating because once they become depressed their stats plummet and there's seemingly no way to improve the mental stamina except them going on a hiatus which is extremely long.

Developer

I'll look into this issue, but, judging from some other reports, I suspect there might be a bug with some marketing option for singles that drains way more stamina than it's supposed to

Doctors will raise mental stamina, but they're a bit expensive when just starting out.

theres a bug were one of the singles (i started before the 5.1 update came out) i cant finish, it  doesnt become green so i cant drag and drop it into another room.

Same bug happened for me too.

theres a problem with the election event, i click it and the ui for it shows up but i cant click on any of the options.

One of my girls has the wish to be on a cooking show with a legend co-host, so I made a cooking genre radio show and put a legendary host in, with her as the permanent cast. When that didn't work, I tried it was both internet and tv shows, but it still shows up as unfufilled :(


Also, my relationship with her randomly went from 100 to like 14. I think it might have been because of her salary - but the change was waaaay faster that I could catch.


Elections won't auto-start either after I release the single.

Developer

Hey, I found the cause of the bug with the show. For now you can launch a show where the co-host is lower level than she wants, then it'll work.

(+1)

Hey, the new Patch seems to have introduced a Bug, that Freezes the game when you break a contract.

Observed it twice now, when an Idol got In jured. Time stops and can't be restarted.

I've noticed that some idols experience permanent stat decreases as a result of experiencing depression and going on hiatus. Certain stats fall to 50% of their value and do not bounce back once the idol recovers. I imagine this is not intended. Has anyone else experienced this?

(+1)

Certain idols portraits won't match. It will switch between the correct one from the audition (bottom image) and a totally different one (top image in middle). I've had this happen several times during previous versions as well.

A few things I noticed:

1. Graduated idols are still available to be added to singles and can still get into scandal
2.  I am unable to create a concert because it always says one is "in progress" 
3. Game seems to freeze when I drag a show to work on concept if trying to relaunch

Not sure if this is the only way to trigger it, but I was working on a song's concept (manager) and decided that I wanted to plan a date with one of my idols. Dragged her in, did the date, and then suddenly the song couldn't be worked on. I didn't cancel the concept process, and (if my memory is right) I couldn't drag the song at all.

Same thing happened to me.  closing and reopening the game does not help

(1 edit)

I decided to plan a date with one of the idols, and when the coffee cup icon showed up and I clicked on it, nothing happened.  After that, I couldn't plan a date with any of the idols--the room was blacked out with "1 Day Left" showing.  Waiting a few in-game days did not solve the problem, and neither did exiting and re-entering the game.

I just started playing today and ran into two bugs:

1. occasionally everything just kinda stops

2. Everyone's mental stamina just dropped to 0 when they were all at 100 not even 2 seconds ago

I'm having that first problem happen to me as well.

I have my salary policies set to automatically keep idols satisfied.  Yet one of my top idols has her idol satisfaction set at 25%.  I couldn't figure out a way to manually fix it.

After holding a concert with an Election, I am unable to make another concert even after the 1 month cooldown. It shows up as " In production" when I have none on my waiting list. It stays like this even after restarting the game.

I'm having the bug that everyone else is having. The game just randomly freezes. I cant nail it down to anything specific. Reloading the game helps for about a minute, and then the game just freezes again. I am using the latest version on a clean install.

On Beta 6 I'm having both the freezing time bug (that pausing and unpausing the game sometimes fixes, sometimes doesn't fix), and additionally at some point my revenue tab emptied out, showing me only my contract gains. 

Also, the Media tab is empty, even though I have a show running (and remains empty if I try to create a new show; I go through the setup process and then it's just gone and never shows up in the sidebar. Stamina for an ongoing show is still deducted.) This problem persists even when starting a new game.

Seconding the time freeze bug on Beta 6, it is happening every few minutes for me. One thing that I noticed seems to trigger it is as soon as I see the notification "___ has gained 30 mental stamina points for an unknown reason", every time after that my game freezes. If I notice anything else that seems to consistently cause it I will list it here. 

A couple of art bugs in Beta 6:

The producers icon art is oversized and low res:  https://imgur.com/Fn2xvbu

The girl's faces are scrambled on the Hiring screen:  https://imgur.com/PpXdkqH  https://imgur.com/oM1SoKW

I'm also getting the game freezing option, as well as still seeing incredibly low sales for songs. The only way to actually make money seems to be through the managers getting different deals for the idols, not actually making music :(

Developer(+1)

Hey, I just pushed an update that should fix the freezing bug.

For single sales, there's a big penalty to sales if you release singles too often (-50% if there's been less than a month from the previous single), maybe you're hitting that?

Could be! I'll keep playing and see how I do!

(1 edit)

You really need to concentrate on getting fans to get sales up...  Look at Promotion on the Activities screen or Details widget.  Fans are love.  Fans are life.

Yeah, I've noticed that. It used to be that I needed 100 fans to be able to sell 100 albums, but even at 1k fans I only sold about 14 albums.

Are you watching the demand/satisfaction indicators over on the right hand side of New Single screen?

Hello I found a bug where when you go and drag an Idol to a room and she get's automatically placed in a different room while still dragging her that her icon doesn't dissapear from your mouse even in cutscenes. All the rooms where she can't be placed will keep being dark because of this. I can still press the pause button, options and menu's. I tried removing her from the room she automatically got picked in and she stopped being in that room but her picture stayed. I can make the picture dissapear by dragging a different Idol.


One small bug I am noticing is that I am receiving messages about stat decreases due to age penalty for girls who have already graduated, not a huge deal but it does clutter up the news feed a bit. 

(1 edit) (+2)

So far, all of my (few) graduated idol are staying in the salary tab and get payed, they are also still eligible for events and preset formation. They also stay in media projects (the stamina cost doesn't change for the other idols in the same project).
Graduated idols don't count against the 5 idols requirement for elections, and don't show up during the election, but I was able to select them when I wanted to swap the envelope.
I tried all the three options (staff, successor and goodbye), and made sure that they aren't in any media projects. I also restarted the game for every try, to make sure there is no weird interference, and waited ingame for at least a month after the graduation.

I also tried to fire them by myself. Fire them directly only works after the second try on the same girl. It has the same salary/event problem like the normal graduated idols.

It also seems you get a lot more freezes the more graduated you have. During my short testing, I tried to run a save with 3 graduated idols and one soon to be. The game freezes all couple days for no obvious reasons. Restarting the game did unfreez the game for a couple days.

Currently having an issue where an idol currently practicing (vocal, dance, style) can't be selected for a media show. Is this a bug, or working as intended?

i'm having an issue where whenever i click into the singles tab, the time freezing bug happens

Hey, um my game freezes a lot. Like lets say my character is writing a song, while the choreographer is practicing a dance, their jobs will be frozen. And literally no process happens. Then I can't even leave the game, because even if I click on main menu or save game, its frozen and wouldn't let me out. 

Developer

Have any of your idols graduated?  Could be a bug that can happen when a leader of a clique graduates, it will be fixed in the next update soon.

Hello.  I found a bug that occurs when I make a tv show. Sometimes the game automaticly cancels my tv show and when I click on the tv button sometimes I can't see the shows I do have in progress. I can only see my cancelled shows. Thankl you and great game! I can't wait for the full version. 

Not sure if this is so much a bug as just kind of a rare thing to happen, but I did wind up getting double idols in an audition. 


You can see the two there. 

Socializing can be prompted even when you're working on another project, and breaks the project (it will not be worked on when socializing is done, and is locked as being worked on so it can't be reassigned, only canceled).

When a girl goes on hiatus, the game does not tell you that it will do whatever it wants to the roster. It does, however, do that and reslots whatever it feels like to make up the space for the missing girl. This should not be done, because you can still schedule girls on hiatus for events and just have to delay it until they're back, there is no reason it should retroactively change things already established and even less than no reason for it to do so without telling you. Caused 3 disasters in my concert thanks to that.

Hi there - I've been having an issue with starting idol elections. Instead of the prompt that says I need a concert in production I'm seeing this screen:


And it doesn't let me select a single or make any changes? Is the concert displayed some kind of minimum requirement before you can do elections?

That's definitely a bug, looks like there's something wrong with one of your singles or concerts. Please send me your save file at sadambober@gmail.com

Firing staff using the scandal points seems to freeze the game. Saving and reloading fixes this.

An Idol graduating also froze my game, after reload the graduation dialogue came up again, but this time it went without problem.

When an Idol Auto-Starts an activity, while trying to drag and drop her somewhere, the cursor turns into her picture and only a restart of the game fixes this.

This is for the mod editor, but the color tags do not work. [color:red] adds a visible color tag to the event in game. (The first two instances are wrong, because I was testing a different method., but in the bottom half, I did use the documentation provided.)

The color tags also appear in  the results panel when it tells you how the stats have been updated as the effects.

Again with whompy girls in auditions -- These ones have ... weird hair? Not at all where it's supposed to be.


With Beta 7, it seems that elections do not work. The game keeps telling me that i need to hire at least 5 idols. I have 8 idols at the moment.

I've been experiencing a bug where girls from other save games are showing up as my options for business deals. Also one of my girls is in a relationship with a girl from a different save, not sure if this is a bug or intentional? Also, is there a way to delete old saves? I have a few from older betas where I was mostly just messing with new features and I'll probably never touch them again, I'd love to delete them.

Same here. I'd like to have the option to delete old saves as well.

- Special Events still not showing up in Details panel

There is a bug that causes shows to cancel on their own. :/

- An idol with low mental stamina graduated

- I retained her as a staffer, then fired her (as she didn't appear as the kind of staffer I needed).

- I'm still getting the warning on the Details widget that I have an idol with low mental stamina.  (Lowest mental stamina of the remaining idols is 78.)
