im not sure if this has been mentioned anywhere else on this thread and there are so many pages but im having issues with this version. most of it runs fine but any animated sexual scenes just stay black. i downloaded game and got a file corruption notice when i unzipped the game. the game loads fine and most of it works like all the talking scenes and that but when it gets to an animated screen for sexual stuff like the bj in the shower it just goes black. i downloaded the bug fixes patch but thats not done anything either. any help would be appreciated

You should know that MR DOTS doesn't take negative comments well.
The latest version of Melody has a sweet tear-jerking scene at Melody's mother's grave. The very next scene is with Steve and Bethany plotting revenge against her.
I felt it was jarring and was shocked that he would put such scenes back to back, and said so on the patreon page.
Even though I have been a supporter at $20/month since the beginning of DMD and throughout Melody, his only reply was to block me from his patreon page and both games.
The fact that I continued supporting him even though I dis-agreed about some scenes means nothing.
If it seems I'm irate, you are correct. I've never heard of a creator treating a fan that way, much less a long time supporter.

What exactly did you say in your post? He could have taken it as offensive maybe; just saying there has to be a reason. Never heard of him doing that to someone before.

I said that putting those two scenes back to back was the worst decision he had ever made, and that he didn't need to resort to shock and evil in order to retain an audience.
If that offended him he has really needs to chill.
His reply included "you always complain", but maybe 4 complaints spread over 20 updates in one game and 8 in the other doesn't fit any definition of "always" that I know of.
He just has 4000 supporters so just doesn't care to listen to negative comments.

I saw your comment in one of his posts. There's a difference between being negative and being constructive. I'm sure saying "the worst decision he had ever made" and "I've wasted an awful lot of money supporting you all this time." is not pretty constructive pal. To anyone.

If you act like an asshole, you'll be treated like an asshole. On his patreon feed and on any other feed. Just move on and go enjoy other games.

So I just finished in one massive 10 hour bing, start to finish. And... I NEED MORE!!! When's the next update?! 12 out of 10, best fucking VN ever. Maybe best romance story ever.
lol.. you should've paced yourself.

Unfortunately this game is only updated twice every three months. March is a DMD update on the 30th, Melody will be updated in late April and late May.

Honestly, it's a bad habit every time a VN game hits me in just the right way. Did the exact same thing with Dating My Daughter and Harem Hotel. The game just sinks its claws it, I lose track of time, and it goes from me starting the game at 9AM and not stopping for anything except the bathroom until the game ends at 8PM at night. But only the very, VERY, best make this happen to me.

Got to say though, playing it straight through resulted in an awesome and wild and highly emotional wild ride of a day.

Oh, and double post, but if asshole A and Bitch B (you should know who I mean) ruin Melody's life with their revenge shit, I am going to go apeshit. I am very invested now, so whatever they plan better fail, I won't be able to stand it if they ruin everything just as it gets perfect for her. Being vague to avoid spoilers.

So it's pretty much confirmed at this point that this game happens a few years or more before DMD since Koko is just getting started, where as she's a big star in DMD. Also we've seen Amy in DMD at dinner with someone who looked like Arnold from the side, so it should be interesting to see if a more Adult version of Melody shows up in DMD at some point, if only from a distance.

The same happened to me with Milfy City. Anxiously awaiting an update on that one so I can play through from the start again.
