(you might remember Miakoda made some really epic jealousy scenes for PSCD).
Too true. I think Christophe's may be my favorite jealousy scene ever. I look forward to seeing what's in store for us.

as you can see, each character will react to each of the 16 unique gifts differently :mrgreen:
Of course is just a line since the total combinations are 64 and the game is already much longer than I thought (doh a new thing :lol:).

Sadly I am going slower than I could, this time because there are some bugs on the latest version of Ren'Py. It's not a good idea to use it to develop, but I wanted to help Ren'Py coder to release the new version quicker. Since I'm the only one to always push Ren'Py to its limits, I basically find 99% of the bugs myself :lol: so that often the developer asks me if all is OK before releasing an update.
I thought was all OK last night but this morning found several bugs (so much that it's not even possible to develop with it, crashes too often). Already told him and for sure he'll fix it shortly, but now it's night in USA... :mrgreen:

Asked Miakoda to write custom lines for each date (4 places x 4 love interests x 4 activities on each place = 64 different lines!). Still not full scenes, but being personalized are much more fun, like the one above :)

So I think I caught up with everything and I'm only waiting for Nadia/Kaitlyn scripted path.
I'm only thinking about a thing in the gameplay: I'll do a small poll in another thread :)

Testing the various game endings. The Roommates sad endings are back! :o :mrgreen:
Haha I'm joking. If you don't raise enough one of the two variables (and that's very simple to do, to be honest!! no grinding at all) you get a sort of bittersweet ending, leaving open a future reconciliation but not so happy like the others. So at least raising enough of the stat gives you a more rewarding epilogue :)

After testing this the only thing left is Nadia/Kaitlyn and then all is done! 8)

The scripter just sent me the last path. It will take me about a week to test it, so I think the weekend of 7-8 April the game beta should be ready! :)
