I accidentally removed my hud on the top right of the dialogue boxes and idk how to bring it back. I'm on Android

Hey,

Swipe left and right in one motion and this should restore it for you.


There should also be a help section in the main menu with all the gesture controls if there are any problems in future.

Hope this helps!

Defending Lydia Collier v.0.12.1E

Tue Nov 30 22:07:09 2021


This is using the full new download, so not the update.

(+1)

Hello, thank you, you should be able to "Ignore" this for now and proceed, or alternatively edit the script in notepad by adding default OFFICEBETA = FALSE at the start to fix it permanently, but it has been fixed for the v.0.13 update.

This is one of the best AVN games I've ever played, and it's only a 10th of what would be in the full game! Characters are all easily identifiable but not one-note, your choices have a genuine impact, the sex scenes are great and you actually care about the story. 

I'm unsure whether this is an issue or whether it's simply to simplify earlier production by having hard-stop choices, but some paths end because you didn't take the option to *go out of your way* to impress them feels strange. For example, [SPOILERS] if you go to the pub with Steph instead of Ellie, suddenly Ellie seems to have no interest in you anymore? Or how you can contact Jenna on Steph's romantic route, but not her bimbo route? [SPOILERS]

Once again I'm assuming it's just a case of simplifying for early production, but just wanted to point it out as a bit confusing. If anything, it speaks to just how good the game is that what may be expected in other games feels strange in this one.

(+1)

Hello, yes this will be fixed in the final version once the last new update (0.16) is done. Then I'll go back and add/edit scenes so things like closing a path and the character reacting makes more sense and are more fleshed out.

The reason with the Bimbo Route is simply the opportunity, if you make Steph a Bimbo, she is with you virtually 24/7 for the rest of the game as she quits her job. Whereas non-Bimbo she will be working as a Police Officer still full-time, giving you the opportunity to see Jenna.

So you'll be definitely closing them off rather than allowing them to intertwine? I know that obviously intertwining them would be a lot more work, but for some characters, it feels like it could work. For example with Bimbo Steph and Jenna, it feels like Jenna could be the side-chick and eventually be brought in once Steph has been totally 'bimbofied', or that Ellie could become a side-chick with Connie (I assume that since Connie and Steph are very much one or the other that the possibility of them together would be difficult). Either way, excellent game as I said before.

(+1)

Some may intertwine, but most will be closed off. There are already two different paths for each girl, enabling these all to interlink would be too much for me to develop without years between updates. The Game also is set to have its finale Tuesday Evening (next update is Saturday) so there isn't a great deal of time left for those relationships to now develop if they haven't already been started.

1. Android version cannot be downloaded (missing file). 

2. The game ended suddenly before the flight to the vacation

Hello, thanks for letting me know, a new android link has been added for v.0.12.1.

what about the game ending suddenly before the vacation?

The first day of vacation is fully included in v.0.12.1 from the morning to flight then arrival and the first night at the villa.

This game is currently sixth in my Best VNs ranking (you can see my full ranking here: https://vnrank.blogspot.com/2021/11/ranking.html)

There is no much room for improvement as the game is really great but the mechanics could be improved by adding some building MC character features through tough moral decisions.

Why i can't download it? Im ANDROID user btw

Hello, sorry about that. The Android Port is provided by a member of the community and they had some trouble with their link. I've updated a new one they provided me and it should now be up and running. Let me know if there are any further issues with it!

(+3)

Just wanna say I think your games are awesome! really enjoyed the writing and the art style is amazing too, can really tell a lot of time and effort goes into creation! The characters are gorgeous, and it's kinda nice to not have the same old macho MC that a thousand other games have. Looking forward to the next update :)

there is a bug with one of the TITAN articles on the browser that prevents the player from reading it, gives a bug prompt and we have to rollback. i did two different gameplays and it only happened in one of them and maybe it is related with the lydia route. idk  

Hi, thanks for letting me know. Was this to do with "Central Government" not being defined?

(+1)

yes that is the error msg

Thanks will have it fixed soon!

When will the update be released to the rest of us

there will be an update each month, stay tuned :v

Hey, are we getting the update today?

Finished playing your game. I really like the different routes you can take and the interactions with your girlfriend.

(+2)

One of the best visual novel games I've played recently. My only complaint is the MC. He is supposed to be younger than Vanessa yet he looks like he is 50 something, lol. Rough life maybe? Anyways, you just earned yourself a new patron!

Interesting premise will check out

Link for android isn't working

Thanks

Just something i noticed while playing, even though Steph is your girlfriend, you dont feel it when she stops you for speeding. she acts the same even if u choose to go with vanessa instead of her.

Any estimation when the new update is coming out?

(+1)

Mid-July, however this is a very rough estimate. More information will be posted at www.whitephantomgames.co.uk/news nearer the time.

(+1)

Will this be available for android?

(+1)

Hello, I've added a community made Android port to the download links

(+1)

Thanks!!!

(+3)

When the next update?

(+1)

Just been released!

(+1)

Ellie's path is my favorite, it's worth dodging all the other women through the first days xD

(+1)

Yoooo just found out about this game! It's been the best 5 hours I've spent sitting in front of the pc in a long time :D   Waiting for v10!!

(+1)

Please Keep this Game Updated! It's been awhile since the last update, and i'm just wondering if this game has been abandoned.

(+3)

v.09 is now available on itch :)

Is there a pateron or something i can use to get the full verison?

(+1)

Hi, you can go to www.patreon.com/whitephantomgames or www.whitephantomgames.co.uk to get the latest versions. The versions uploaded here are the full versions, but backers do get these versions before they become available to the public.

How far ahead is the patreon version?

(+1)

The Patreon and Public versions are currently at equal stages.

(1 edit)

I'm guessing that this game is abandoned?  its been\ nearly 6 months ago.since last update

there was a update 0.9 is out since a half month

v.09 has now been updated on itch :)

6 months between chapters wouldn't even be unusual for a game developed part time by a single person. just saying

(2 edits)

Dev, just a suggestion, maybe you can give help button in game to make player know what the function of unfaithful point, kinky point, exhibitionism point, etc 馃榾
