IT'S OUT MOTHERFUCKERS
Currently there's a bug in the game in that it wouldn't use the video card RAM on some cards. If you're experiencing massive frame rate choking, you'll need to wait for Illusion to patch this thing.
god, the optimization is a complete fuckup. but i'm having a bit way more fun than i should with this. you really need to be able to understand all the clues to play this. and there are like a whole lot of hidden shit, too. they need to fix the vram bullshit asap.
You "Sing up" your customs from main menu and then theyll just wander the world somewhere.
Kick the starting niggas from your inn and add rooms and you can invite the girls to stay there. Its the second dialogue option or something.
And whos big idea wast to make Esc the "ohshitmomshere" button. Any way to disable that?

oh come on, you kinda learn it after an hour playing anyway, just save often. are you new to vidiya games or something?
It's Unity, but at the moment the game is bugged that it apparently only runs smooth for a small group of players. For the rest of us it's literally running like it's on software mode, and probably is, consider my VGA monitor shows no stress on my graphic card at all when running this thing.
It's a shame really. There's actually a good amount of game here. Learning the girl's schedule, finding clues, fund management, etc. It's been a long while since a Illusion game actually felt like a game like this.
I'm gonna have to do like I did with Harem Mate. Put the image files on my phone and look at it while playing so I know what the menus say...
I'm mostly hoping this game will run on my computer. Basically just that the lowest settings will be playable for me! If not then I'll have to wait until I get a better graphics card to be able to play it.
Sadly, after playing it for a day or so, I think that while the open world element was a neat idea, and the character creator/model quality is their best so far. . .the H-scenes are pretty lack-luster.
In my opinion I feel that AA2 had more h-scene diversity. Or just scenes in general. While this game is fun, it just feels less when compared to AA2 in the H-scene department.
What are your thoughts on the matter?
>managed to avoid the cycle of grief since SBZ
>got hyped for nothing for this game
>got the game now, playing at 15fps in open world section with a Goddamn GTX 970 and Haswell CPU
>starting to feel like Illusion is trying to spite him
just avoid this till the shit's patched guys. the features promised are all there for once. only that the game is super unoptimized. my average fps is 10 on my quad core GTX960 rig. it really isn't worth the frustration right now.
Well it's kinda good if you can understand the menus and the clues (wait for translation patch), don't mind going through some trial and errors to deduct the whereabouts of the girls at times, and okay with exploring a bit to unlock the more costumes/items/sex positions.
Basically nothing's being handed to you. Shit don't just happen on their own. You have to go about the ingame map and complete some rootamentary story tasks to get all the freaky shit.
Because I have all the previous games which I have played many times. Yet installing those games was simple. All I had to do with those was download and install. Easy. This version isn't like that.
Illusion hotfix coming soon (9/16) guys.
Open map optimization.
Free H mode
Re-balancing, Bug fixes
Extra costumes, Hairstyle.
This is only the temporary hotfix. There will be a full version update coming later.
Illusion don't normally give a shit about us.
This patch only means that the Japanese, which are the main buyers of this game, fell for the hype as well and got pissed with the poor performance in open world sections.
Also, something stinks... feels like they deliberately released the game prematurely.
Duh, anytime an ergoe company releases a patch it's because their main customer base is demanding it. SBPR's Amazon review is utterly pitiful right now. It's like 2 stars the last time I checked it. It's filled of long complaints about the performance. While people who force themselves to play in spite of the serious frame rate issues actually seem to enjoy it. So SBPR is getting shit rating on Amazon, yet decent reactions on the futaba. Most people just simply can't get pass the performance problem, and it's hurting the sale greatly.
The bad news is that even if this hotfix and the upcoming version update actually made everything 100% better. Whoever got re-interested into purchasing this game will simply buy from the used market. As a huge number of initial owners are already selling their copies at way marked down price tags already.
Bullshit. All the previous games extract and install the same way. And if you've played any of the previous games, how could you possibly have missed the hongfire threads that extensively cover everything about the damn games?
You might wanna check those out.
>people with super computers complaining about low FPS
>mfw playing Illusion games on my shitty laptop
But yeah, this one is by far the worst. Literally a slide show when I try to roam the island.
I'm not bullshitting. When I got the previous games I didn't get them from hongfire and didn't even have to look there for stuff. The games themselves did say hongfire at the menu, bottom right corner, but that wasn't where I got. It's been long since I got the last Sexy Beach game. I didn't have to do any of that mounting stuff. The same thing can be said with the Virtual Sex games. There used to be a site but died years ago. All you had to do was download the game, unrar, and install. It was all set up and ready to go. Then you had to copy and paste a few files here and there and everything was set. You didn't have to go through any mounting.
the game just came out, so most of the copies you'll find online are just the .iso files. what you're talking about is a pre-packaged easy install version, something that hongfire generally develops and then gets disseminated through torrent sites.
The game is pretty meh. I mean everything would be worth it if the sex scenes were good, but they're not. So I soldiered on with the 5 - 15 FPS for about 15 hours for pretty much shit. There isn't significant dialogue either so it's not like there's much of a difference between girls besides chipmunk sound #1 and dying squirrel sound #5.
Historically they've only ever released what are effectively tech demos.
Sure, it's my fault for still getting hyped after all these years, but it was because they're running on Unity, an already popular engine with extensive documentation and a huge community. Even a single bedroom developer scratching his dick in between typing away at the PC came out with better than this shit.
Also, why the fuck haven't they been able to properly utilize the GPU until now? I don't think either AMD or NVIDIA charge license to use their cards, and anyone can sign up for their developer forums and ask for help from their technicians on how to code better.
I guess Illusion's tech demo business model ain't gonna change anytime soon. Them using Unity instead of writing their own code simply means that they rake in more profit, while not bothering to invest more to improve and expand their games.
At least KISS is doing good; better utilization, huge customization options and huge amount of content. It's a shame that Custom Maid 3D series is too animu for me.
These motherfuckers need to fire their 'game designer' and stick to sex scenes and assets.
Make an asset store where people can share sex animations, characters and other shit.
Then they can sit back and watch the yen roll in.
While definitely not 9/10, I honestly don't think this is all that horrible. All the promises were delivered if you really look into their pre-release materials. It's just sucha piss poor execution that ended up fucking up everything. I'd still give it 6/10 or 7/10 if they add in more features via DLC later on. And I do think this is the correct direction for Illusion. As in stepping away from simple posers and make games with actual gameplays.
And yeah, I'm leaning with the theory that Teatime team was the one who handled the core game and dropped the ball. It would explain the huge differences in quality between the character builder and the game itself.
so, since no one's brought it up yet; there's apparently a patch from illusion that should fix the performance issues. maybe take a second and search the hongfire thread instead of bitching here like children.
It doeeeesn't o/~
I'm not bitching, because, hey, I didn't pay for it. Will just wait till it works.
But if I were I'd be angry as hell about their willful incompetence in repeatedly releasing games that they know don't work.
if by huge international market you mean the stupid amounts of people that torrent their product, then yes its surprising that they haven't noticed.
VN companies have been making the move to releasing in other countries, but they often have to edit stuff out to fit the area. a game like this, where you can easily populate the beach with a bunch of underage looking toons, isn't something they'll sell in foriegn countries.
Meh, works fine if you use the available injectors to remove some filters.
Man I uninstalled and deleted files, everything is just a step back.
Clothing system and character models are the only thing that got better.
I wish there was someone better than Illusion, theyve had their time. AA and AG was good, but now they are just shitting out tech demos.
as with all illusion games, give it a couple months and try it again. they'll roll out more content that should have shipped with the game to begin with and the translations will be done by then.
i've got to ask though, how is it worse then artificial girl 3? i liked the game because of all the mod content, but there was pretty much nothing to do but run around looking for the small number of girls you could populate the world with.
WTH? It was working just fine. Then I uploaded the new patch and now after the start menu I get the now loading screen and the screen goes white. But the music is still running in the background. Nothing ever loads up. No matter what I do, nothing happens.
In AG3 the girls went around, sure they couldnt do much but they didnt just stand at some spot like a diablo vendor. Im going to say, yeah their enviroment got better but its no real use and it doesnt do anything.
>A game from 10 years ago
>Girls freely walk around the world
>Can fuck girls anywhere; character creation system where you can even create a girl to be related to you
>Girls come up to you when they are horny and fuck you right there and then
>Other girls, if they walk in on this scene which is happening in real time, either run off embarrassed or watch on in anticipation
>Illusion games are now set in cardboard cutout worlds where girls stand around
>Games have taken 10 steps back, and the only conciliation for this is including the ability to be cucked by watching your waifu fuck another guy in the hotel
>Thrixxx stopped making games altogether because they got greedy, then became lazy, and then ignored everything their customers wanted and released a multiplayer sex game
>Now the modded version of SV2 is stretched to capacity and is unstable as fuck
How did sex simulators become like this? You'd think the new generation of computer literate faggots would be buying this shit up, but instead it's the opposite.
Does anyone else have camera issues well playing the game? mine keeps wanting to spin nonstop and it bugging the hell out of me not knowing what is causing it.
Welcome to the club. Most of us have this exact same problem.
Instead of fixing the damn basic problems, Illusion is releasing more outfits and free sex modes where you can skip the entire gameplay.
Hongfire has got some hotfixes, but most of them don't work or are for the graphics card you don't have. The rest of the hongfire modders are too busy adding Wario noses and big breasted futa mods.
Holy shit I can't believe I skipped over that.
Going to try that here soon
The thing that pisses me off most about this game is they took out tanning. I don't know why the fuck they have the lotion option because the girls literally don't tan. It also doesn't have the thinning fattening lotion from SBZ which was the ONLY good aspect of that game.
>no kissing animation
call me a little bitch or whatever but I will never not get annoyed by this kind of shit in H Games
this is a game, at its core, about courting characters and being intimate with them. why can't the two kiss after an H scene?
