Posted by on

July 31st, 2020

  • ET-M done.

July 26th, 2020

  • Wrote more dialogue for "A Game of Trust" (EN).

July 25th, 2020

  • Wrote more dialogue for "A Game of Trust" (EN).
  • Updated some maps in Catshill.
    • Updated some maps in Lyon.
  • General small bug fixes.
  • Made character health values a little less arbitrary and less dynamic: almost every class now has the same health growth rate per level.

July 24th, 2020

  • Harddrive recovery successful.
  • Finished adding the third batch of Elliot lines for "The Garden of Angels" (DE).
    • Added the first batch of Elliot lines for "The Poisoned Diner" (EN).
    • Added the third batch of Cheshire lines for "A Game of Trust" (EN).
    • Added the third and final batch of Simon lines for "The Disappearing Act" (DE).
    • Added the first batch of Simon lines for "The Obsessive Valentine" (DE).

July 23rd, 2020

  • Elaine has less of a chance to get stuck and hang the game when first entering Theatre Lyrique d'Ombre.
    • Maci will actually start her intended conversation on the first time entering College Beaufort's gymnasium if Elliot already talked to Lavoie about Vivian.
    • Courtemanche won't give Elliot infinite Back Room Keys if he talks to her without examining the rafters first.
  • Started adding the third batch of Elliot lines for "The Garden of Angels" (DE).
  • Harddrive recovery.

July 22nd, 2020

  • I don't know why preventing the console from opening/closing when "~" is typed instead of "`" didn't work on my other PC, but now it does a simpler check method that works.

July 21st, 2020

  • General bug fixes.
    • Attempted to address an interesting bug I'd never noticed: opening the menu during a thunderstorm throws a shitload of script call errors because it runs the lighting change part of the storm in the menu, where lighting does not exist. Everyone on the VXA forums says this (running script calls in the menu) is not possible. I would like them to meet the Global Common Event script. CHECKMATE, SUPPORT FORUM, NOW WHAT?
    • Fixed by telling the event to only change the lighting on the map.
  • Added rough translations for the script call error message in French, German, Japanese, and Spanish.

July 20th, 2020

  • Officially cast Vincent Fallow as Det. Elliot Mortensen.
  • Bogus script calls no longer crash the game, and instead now play an error sound and display the broken script call before attempting to proceed without running it. This will cause issues of its own if the game fails to activate an objective, for example, but will at least prevent me from losing all of my progress when testing and forgetting to save because I'm an idiot. :')
