Just wanted to point out that for me the old save games are working perfectly. I can use the saves from the old game for chapter 3. The only problem i have is that the skip button is skipping over everything, even unread text. Thats a bit of annoying, maybe you can fix that? Cant say much about the story since i only played for 10 minutes but i wanted to point that out first. But so far so good ^^

Subscribestar's policy is more lenient: If it is not based on a real person and no real person was harmed during production its okay. Don't know what the simulated necrophilia laws are in russia though.
Yeah, I started a SubscribeStar, but still to create social media accounts to 'prove' who I am.

I think SubscribeStar and others will eventually conform to pressure from payment providers or investors, but hopefully they won't be as clumsy and uneven in their handling of it.

Thanks for the feedback. I've heard that the save thing isn't affecting everyone.

The skipping issue is a feckin' mystery. I've no idea why it's happening. There's nothing in the code that I can see and no bug reported with the Renpy version it was built with.
Planning to use testers to iron out bugs in the future and hopefully it's just a bug with this build.

I think it's highly possible that you have some saves somewhere in the build that log which lines you've seen, thus this info getting to everyone else. Don't remember what exactly is in the package, so it's just a random thought.

EDIT: I've actually DL'd a fresh copy of Ch3. It does contain the save folder with several Autosaves, a Navigation json file and the persistent. Not too deep into Ren'Py, but I'm relatively sure that the "persistent" contains which lines you've seen.

EDIT 2: This is indeed the case. Simply remember to clear the "\game\saves" folder inside any future build you post. The Skip function works just fine. Additionally for testing purposes in the future: Ren'py games store every information they save inside the user's documents. On Win10 it's at "Users\<user>\AppData\Roaming\RenPy\<game folder>". Keep up the good work. And just watch out for future builds and that's it.

Ah. Dammit. I'll do some future testing with this thanks, it didn't occur to me it'd affect skipping.
I usually clean out that folder, as well as relying on Renpy doing a bit of housekeeping as it builds the versions. But, hand on my heart, I can't say whether I followed my own process with this one.

Thanks for this.

I've updated the links on the OP with new versions that should hopefully fix the saving issues that some were seeing and definitely fix the skipping issue.
Of course it's too late for those who have played it, so apologies for this hiccup. This was due to bad housekeeping on my part when creating the builds.

Many thanks to Nubatron for finding the issue, as I couldn't see the wood for the trees (checking code and the app, rather than remainder files).

Now let's see if I've learned my lesson in time for the next release...

Good work on the VN. How long is your usual update time between chapters? 2-3 months?

Cheers. Unfortunately yes and it's far longer than I'd want obviously. I try to make up time where I can, but it'll never be a monthly release (unless things change in the real world).

Of course no problem. Take all the time you need, better than a rushed thing. Although not gonna lie it will be a hard wait after the chapter 3 tease.

Thanks for the heads-up, log and files. I was able to replicate the bug using your save file, but unfortunately I have no idea where the bug's coming from or how to fix it.

Weirdly the same bug has happened with a few games here on F95, around the same release dates and using the same Ren'Py build, but there are no bug alerts about this.
However that's grasping at straws and doesn't fix this issue. And I'm going to blame porting to a larger format. I essentially started a new build, but was positive I'd copied over every aspect, but now I can't be certain.

So I'm sorry, but it looks like you'll need to begin again. I've updated the OP to reinstate the save bug alert.
I'm also going to be reaching out to testers for the next build, so hopefully this is the last we've seen of this bug.
