How to Install or Update the Game

As I have not released a full version of the game since version 3.3.04c I have been getting queries from people on how to get a full version of the game.

Last Full Release
The last full release is in this post
http://slavemaker3.blogspot.com.au/2013/04/slave-maker-3304c-bug-fix-release.html

To Download and install use either

Torrent
Simplest solution is to download the full torrent using your choice of torrent client. The torrent should hopefully still be seeded. My apologies I am not due to development work I am doing.

To install
none required, but you may wish to move the downloaded folder elsewhere on you harddrive.

or

Download Packs
Download the packs from either the listed filehost links (like rapidshare) or from Love Robin's direct download (note a user name and passworkd is needed and is listed).

Download the following files
Basic Pack.rar
note: this is a fully functional version of the game with a few slaves and assistants

optional
Assistants Pack.rar
Minor Slaves Pack.rar
Events Pack.rar
Slaves Pack 1.rar
to
Slaves Pack 8.rar

To install

a) create a new folder, say Slave Maker.

b) Move or copy all the rar files into that folder.

c) extract all the rar files. DO NOT extract them into subfolders named for the rar files, just extract into the current folder.

I recommend using either WinRar or 7zip to extract the files.

d) this will have created a fully functional game in a subfolder Slave Maker 3.3

Note: if any extracts fail with corrupt files or crc errors you will have to redownload the rar file in question

To upgrade an existing installation
download the latest update
http://slavemaker3.blogspot.com.au/2013/06/slave-maker-3304e-revision-3.html

To apply the update

a) copy the file into the game folder Slave Maker 3.3, or the folder containing SlaveMaker3.exe (in case you renamed the folder or moved it)

b) extract the archive, again DO NOT extract it into a subfolder, and overwrite any files when asked.

That is it you should have a fully playable game with the latest official patches.

Note: there are still bugs in the latest official version Sorry! I am work on another fix.

Slave Maker 3.3.04e (revision 3)

Update 3.3.04e (revision 3)

This is a fix for version 3.3.04e to correct a critical bug and a couple of small other bugs.

  • Fix people and places reverting to the start of game. People no longer available and so on. Caused by a typo in the load process
  • fix an xml typo that prevents some events working while walking
  • fix another xml typo that prevented a maid cafe image showing
  • fix an issue where some images in a few events did not show (say the meeting with Tena where she gives the strap-on)
  • a fix/improvement of purchasing minor slaves
  • fix strip tease images not showing for some slaves
There are no new features otherwise in this release,
EXCEPT
 I had not noted for the original 3.3.04e that the "Show Vanilla" checkbox when selecting slaves now also affects assistants. If you do not have it ticked then assistants classed as "vanilla" (ie little or no custom features) are not shown.

I have some reports of people seeing blank events or ones without text. In one case I believe this is caused by a bug with Aeris when you use her as an assistant.

NOTE: I have posted versions of this fix in comments in the previous post and at the futanari Palace. This one has some fixes not in those previous postings. So even if you downloaded the fix previously I recommend still downloading and installing the partial fix below.


Links - Complete Update Version

Full version including the full version 3.3.04e update. File is 480Mb. This can be used to update any version of the game from 3.3 onwards. Possibly it can update previous versions too, but no guarantee save games will work correctly.

Installation (full and partial)
Move the download rar file into your game installation and then extract it, overwriting files when prompted.

For the torrent just copy the files/folder in the Slave Maker 3.3 folder into your game installation.

EDIT
there is a bug I just noticed (and fixed) if you try loading an very old save game (before 3.3) then the game will hang loading the save.
 Also the load issue this update fixes is still present so a new fix is pending


and to repeat so it is not lost due to my bugs

Furry Brothel
A while ago Drekas99 released an event, the Furry Brothel and this has been included in recent releases of the game. There were some problems with the event, including language issues as Drekas99 is not a native english speaker I believe.

Chaos-X, the developer of Mariya, Kanako, Ringo, Mao in the game updated the event and rearranged it to produce a new version, one he has released as Open Source and has invited contributions.

This is Chaos-X's version (3Mb)

will also be on Love Robin's filehost shortly.

Drekas99
I have not seen any posts or comments from you recently. I will not include Chaos-X's version in the game until I hear from yourself that you approve. Or if you fail to respond for a while.

Please let me know if this is acceptable. If I do not hear from you before the 3.3.05 release I will assume it is acceptabe to use Chaos-X's version of the event.

Slave Maker 3.3.04e Bugfix Release

Update 3.3.04e

EDIT
There is a reported bug in this release that prevents some data loading correctly. A fix is being worked on the this release will be updated 
EDIT
bugs fixed. Update will be posted soon

This is another bugfix update with small additional features. Primarily this is to address bugs in the last 3.3.04x releases. For those who missed the previous updates this includes all the changes from 3.3.04d and most of the fixes from 3.3.04c. My apologies as a result this update is almost 500Mb is size, but a large part of that is the slave upgrades and small slave fixes.

Most notably this fixes  issues for the main slave's pregnancy and stat/vitals refresh issues, and issues for moving houses. Also a number of other bug fixes but this should fix a large majority of all reported bug.

This also has

  • some low level change for city structure that moved a lot of code around.
  • small changes to optimise load times, but did not have any significant effect
  • xml fixes for Tohsaka, Ariel, Ami to correct xml node errors that prevented the slaves working correctly
  • female/dickgirl slaves makers can now become pregnant from 'Intimacy' act via "Talk to Slaves" with slaves who have cocks.
  • ability to customise the human gestation period (see configuration.xml) Note: if you use a value of less than 30 the game will treat it as 30 days
  • image change for Marine to align better with the desired source character, pity I liked the original image, but not on-character enough.
  • adds handjob, footjob, Giga BE, courtesan ending images for Minako, and fixes a long standing bug with catgirl training
  • a tweaked version of assistant Rhia. NOTE: if you use a variant (a sex enabled version) then please backup that version before applying this update.
  • updates for Akane to add handjob/footjob images and to fix some blank endgame images.
  • text fixes for twins slaves
Additionally more small events were added while walking and some were expanded with varinat images.
  • another science teacher variant, a puppy girl version
  • a new mermaid event at the beach rocks
  • new monsters in the secure slave pens (harpy, bee girl, unknown) and more variant images, for instance more elementals
  • added dickgirl versions of a couple of events
  • a variant "puppy worker"
For those who downloaded Slave Pack 6 there is an issue with some missing files for Snow White, these missing files are included in this update.

This also includes the recent updates for slave Heather and Gardevoir.

Note while making this release a new slave Yuna was released but is not included in the update.

Thf772 has released an update for Gardevoir

Version for download:
5.32.043 - β (minor bugs can be found)
|DropBox 7z
|DropBox RAR
|DropBox ZIP
|Google Drive Folder
*GDrive folder is the most up-to-date (v. 5.32.046)

Others
 Updates for Ariel and Lightning were also released by they appear to just be xml fixes that I included in the last bugfix anyway.

If you want them please visit the Futanari Palace for the fixes. I will include them in the next full release of the game.

The vanilla version of Holo should have an update ready soon.


Game Status
Another bugfix 3.3.04e should be released soon, and correct a remaining pregnancy issue and a number of other bugs, and add some minor new features and events.

Assuming I add nothing signficant bugwise this will be the last of the 3.3.04 series and I will work on 3.3.05 release


Desired Game Features
At the Futanari Palace I have been asking people to let me know what new features people want to have me focus on developing in the game. If you wish to comment please visit the forum and post as well.

Otherwise the commonest requests have been
  • Complete backgrounds and events that are incomplete
  • More Lady Grey
  • more content for the Slave Maker, for instance things to do between training slaves
I will be using this feedback to prioritise what to work on for the game in the next release (and later releases too)
