Potato Shields Activated
First of all, thank you for your support in the last post, is not like I was expecting hostility or anything, just… you know… delays and stuff, even though, I’ve never given a precise date (that I remember), all have been “hopes” and “maybes”… but still.
One of the stuff I’ve been doing was fixing and finishing the art, since my artist half bailed on me I ended up doing some extra corrections, I’m not entirely pleased with it but maybe I’m just too picky, I don’t think it’s bad, just not awesome as I expected… I dunno. Feel free to tell me if I should get him for next time, once you see all of it of course.
So OK, we’re pretty much done, I have a very big memory leak somewhere but I hope to fix that in the next couple of days, then I will finalize details and send it to my tester for a final beta testing run, if no more bugs, glitches or extra details in need of polish come out of that, it means we’re done.
Aside from that memory leak, I don’t like one bit that the game eats up from 600 to 800k in ram, that’s way too much, not even 3D games go over 500 – 600, cause you know, they are well optimized, looks like that memory leak could be the thing making it go up to 800 but I’m not sure, even with that it’s still perfectly functional with a decent system, low end systems may have a problem though, even without the memory leak, so, I don’t think I can help you there. Again, hopefully that will be taken care of in the next few days since it’s really the only thing left to do.
My PC is pretty lame though, 2gb RAM, 2,7 Dual core, the only extra is the Gfx Card which is not very good either, but it helps a lot.
Anyway, I’m guessing it will be ready within this week, depends on how well memory fixing and testing goes, after that I don’t know how much it will take to set up Paypal and all that, but I hope not more than a week, or maybe less, no idea.
In non important news, I received word from Curious Factory, who are the contact with DLsite, and the game needed more censorship, I see how it did now, I was thinking about those manga with very tiny white strips that pass for censorship but don’t really cover anything, but that doesn’t work here, they demand full cover of everything. I already did that and it was stupid annoying, specially for something that is intended to be removed, as in, you will be able to remove it and I will have lost all that work that was censoring, because you’re not going to see it… no jokes allowed.
See you later.
Edit: Censor will be removable, that’s what I implied… we’ve been over this already in previous posts, there are no changes, censorship has always been planned to be patched out.
