checking every week for the new version. i enjoyed playing this game so much.
maybe i should just wait a solid 3 months and then check back for the next version.
their is a question i want to ask, its about the girls you have from the start. by the time i reach the third brothel some girls i had from the beginning of the game, upkeep sometimes are so high they are using more money than they earn, and sometimes even thou they get a good amount of time off, they don't wanna work.
if you have a favorite, you cant keep her on payroll for long
the only mods i have are king traits and chris job.
did i not train them well or is just the way the game was made to be?

Hi! Sorry about the delay for the next version, I am in the writing phase and unfortunately the pace is harder to predict than when coding, sometimes there's writer's block and so on... I've been looking for an extra writer for years but sadly, this is the hardest skillset to come by apparently. It doesn't help that my version of Ren'py is bugging and doesn't let me reload anymore.

Onto your question: It's possible there's a balance issue, but this is the first time it's been reported. I would like some inputs from other players to make sure it's not just an issue with your particular girl builds.

That's not a scenario I've run into.  In my typical play-through, I generally just leave the upkeep sliders at the default (maybe I should try playing with them more). Girl price issues seem (to me) to be controllable through a combination of the perk in the Maid constellation that lowers a girl's upkeep and the bedroom upgrade that lowers upkeep for the whole brothel.  Oh, and I also try to avoid girls with the Expensive trait.

Maybe its how i played the game.

I had to keep her upkeep to green so she wont eventually get depressed, it was 500+ and she wouldn't work more than three unpredictable days a week; maybe four. her income was 400+ when she does work.
I had similar problems dealing with other girls.
If no one else have a problem then maybe i just need to change the way i approach the game.
This game have so many elements, maybe i wasn't utilized them all.
thank you.

Hi, I'm having this error every time I try to select an image in the game CG gallery, the girls gallery seems to work fine instead.

I'm sorry, but an uncaught exception occurred.

hi everyone.
 I Started playing this game for a while now, and i have played both the story mode and the no story mode.
they are both awesome.
it would be nice if you could add custom brothels to the no story mode, similar to how you add mods. Each brothel would have its own unlock requirements.
for eg: to unlock the "Name of Brothel goes here" brothel,
you must have 10 "rank goes here" rank girls,
and two must have "traits needed go here" traits
and have skills over "Skills needed go here".
I know the main game is still under construction but i figured if the GM don't mind. then maybe someone could create a simple way to add them or show me how to.
you could add them either before or after the final main brothel.
since they would be mods, if anyone hate this idea. then they don't have to use them.

I could give you pointers, but I'd need a bit more information:
- What do these new brothels do, exactly? Just change the background picture or have similar stats as existing brothels, or do completely new things?
- What would the UI flow look like?

A quick status update:
- I am still struggling with nasty Ren'py bugs. I have reinstalled Ren'py completely and scrubbed the computer clean which took me a while as I had a dozen versions piled up from years of work on BK.
- Even after a completely clean install, I cannot get the game not to crash on reload (without so much as an error message), except in the very last version (8.2.0).
- Unfortunately, this version doesn't play nice with BK as it has many rendering glitches on buttons and such. It may be because Ren'py doesn't support ProportionalScale objects anymore.

I am left with two bad choices:
- Keep Ren'py on the stable version (8.0), but have development slow down to a crawl because I cannot reload, and risk keeping this crashing bug in the release version without the possibility of diagnosing it. This would also mean no further updates of Ren'py would be possible in the future.
- Port the game to 8.2 and face an uphill battle refactoring all the code that uses ProportionalScale (that's kind of all the code that supports declaring and displaying images in the game - a lot), and it's not even clear if that would fix the graphical bugs as they are inconsistent.

Both options suck, to be honest. In the short run I might keep option 1 going but let me tell you, it's not easy to write events without the ability to reload. :(

me personally, you should go for option 2. Who knows that Ren'py may will eventually fix the issue in the long term and besides, you're still in v0.3, it's a long way to go.

Is there a simple way to find out if ProportionalScale is indeed the culprit?

Probably stay on 8.0 for BK 0.3's release at the very least.

Can you keep two versions of RenPy on the same machine? If so, maybe write/test events in a RenPy 8.2 build and transport them to the main 8.0 branch after they're done. It's a bit cumbersome, but so are the other options.

Would greatly appreciate any help. Additional Information would be:
Mods:
Augment
Friends/Foes
Goldo's Cool (Deactivated)
Headhunter
Chrisjobmod
traitking

Occurred at the end of day (the beginning before all the night jobs/services officially starts). I should be using the latest patch...unless there was an update I haven't noticed in the last 6 months? Don't think I can make a repeat in a new game as it would require the farm. Did edit the overall capacity of the rooms.

Additional Request:
Is there a code that would allow to increase the amount of rooms for the available:
Jobs
Master Bedroom
Farm

To proportional to the overall license?
