@sakuyas_mmaster , @dce8383 and @PlastificadO. Just want to inform you that I think I've fixed the Jess wake up bug. The bug is tied to MC leaving Jessica's apartment. Specifically, when MC is forced to leave at 6am, (in v0.2.2 after meeting Penny too). The game doesn't get the information that player left the apartment, so game thinks you're still in there.
But the bug only persist if you never use fast travel, because fast traveling sets the information straight. In fact, there is a bug, where it resets the info even if you just open the fast travel menu but don't do it. So to experience this bug you have to walk everywhere by foot.

When Images won't load or show up, download, then install the right codec for your os.
MacOS:
Windows:

When movies won't load or show up, download the webm "DirectShow Filters".
DirectShow Filters:

Downloaded/Installed WebPCodec and DirectShow Filters, but still can't see previews of images, or open images, when I go into the Image Folder.
You can't view the images, because they are not, technically speaking, images. The files are encrypted as RPG Maker files and only RPG Maker engine can read them. You have to use the file decrypter that somebody has mentioned here.

Hi everyone,
it's been a while since I've wrote something. I've been super busy all over the place. My real life is getting quite interesting lately. It's pretty scary how good things are, actually. It's weird, because it stresses me out how good thing are. But that's a problem for another day. Now it's time for some real news.

Last time we were with Jane, we experienced some problems around her cheerleading team. This time I can promise you a resolution to that. In fact, this will shape her personality quite a lot, one way or the other. I hope I can make a justice to the idea that I have. All I can say, there will be some changes around her.
Here's one more image for you.

The exterminated bug
So, what is the bug that I have fixed and almost nobody knows about it? It's a big one, I can tell you that.
Every time you open the save menu on top of a, let's call it a choice box (with the choices for you to pick), there is a chance the game crashes, if you don't actually save the game. There are special choice boxes with hidden options, you see.
I had to use a plugin for RPG Maker to hide a certain option. But the plugin was never designed to use in a game that allows to save the game at that moment. So if there is a hidden choice in a choice box and you open a save menu, this bug happens. If you save, the hidden choices are suddenly unhidden, and if you don't save and close the menu, the game crashes.
If you unhide the choices, you effectively bypass conditions for these choices to be active and you can use them as if there we're available for you from the get-go. Which, of course, may screw up your game.
I've been trying to fix this bug in the past, but to no avail, so I put it to backburner. Last week one player reported this bug to me (first person, if I remember correctly) and I've tried to explain why I can't fix this bug. As I was explaining the situation to him, I've started to formulate a solution to this problem, so I've decided to try to fix it again.
And it failed miserably. The plugin I used was to complicated for me to understand. So I've tried to find an alternative. I knew about one, but it has two major flaws. First, once a choice is hidden, it's hidden for all choice boxes, until it's manualy unhidden. I mean, if you hide first choice, every first choices are hidden in all upcoming boxes.
The second, much worse, hidden choices were not hidden, only the text was invisible, but the space in the choice box was still allocated. You can imagine a choice box with ten options where five is hidden, but the box is still big as for these then choices, only the lines with hidden choices are blank. That would look terrible.
It turns out, this wasn't a feature and since my last attempt this problem was fixed. So now my only problem was the manual reset of information, which choices are hidden. The short story is, after several days of investigating and trying to find a solution I've actually find it.
So this bug is fixed now. It's possible to save the game without showing the hidden choices, the game doesn't crash, if you close the menu without saving. All and all it looks alright. I will have to do more testing, but I'm confident this one is finally fixed.
That's it. I'll have more info very soon. See you later, guys.

File49 is before last quest with Kara and few quests with Joan. File50 is just before licking Joan and make her cum. Enjoy it...
Thank you for this!

I have extracted the files and put them in the save folder, but they won't come up when I go to the load folder in the game! Please help

The saves are now stored somewhere else, depending on whether you play the PC or Mac version. Check @Mikemaster's post

after playing this game for the first time and having experienced issues while saving at choices, I've just stopped doing it and started creating saves in the middle of normal dialogs instead, it wasn't a big deal. Glad you managed to fix it anyway, for the stubborn ones out there.
