Cyberpolice (Minor Update: 19th of March 2024) (WIP)

I tend to have bizarre connection issues where my internet drops without giving any signal it’s dropped (apart from content not loading), so any potential loading time problems I have I assume is a result of those. (That said, I haven’t played the game in a while. I probably should replay it.)

I see I opened Pandora box here :eyes:, Sorry about that.
But yeah addressing your concern it’s definitely more than 1 minute loading time, while it eventually open the next page.

Good thing you told me, I’d never have even imagined it’d be a problem. Better fix it now than later.

I’ll try to fix it within the week. Well, I’ll at least chop the scenes into smaller pieces which will hopefully help. :slight_smile:

Is the same thing true in the final games that are sold as well? Or is it just the WIPs hosted in Dashingdon?

I never see final game loading so long between scenes, I am just joined like a months or so in forum so as far as the demo concerned I think this the unique one I encounter this problem.

Beside the full game is in hard disk on your PC or Smartphone so logically it should be faster loading.

Right, the released games (down)load everything at once, while Dashingdon demos load scene by scene (which is why your internet dropping at scene change is worse than it dropping mid-scene, ahem).

Alright, so it’s just a problem for the Dashingdon version. In that case I might not do too much about it, especially since the poll implies it’s not a widespread problem.

I’ll think about it. I fear chopping the scenes to smaller bits will make it more annoying to go through the file, but the opposite might be true as well. No promises.

Thanks for bringing it up anyway. I’d rather be told about these kinds of problems than not. :slight_smile:

I had one more thing to report. I’m getting “too much recursion” bug trying to load a save on Firefox phone browser. This is specifically this browser problem. PC version and over mobile browsers seems to be fine.

No, I don’t believe I have any problems playing a completed game.

1-3 minutes is an outrageous problem.

Different game, not yours :sweat_smile:

I’ve gotta say, I absolutely hate Mari and I mean that in the best way possible. She’s quite well written and gives off an uncooperative, suspicious corporate toady vibe.

Normally that problem exists when testing the game, not playing it, so I’m very confused. (based on a quick googling, never had the problem myself)

Thanks for the report, even if I have no idea what to do about it. :slight_smile:

Thanks. Many people seem to like her(at least as a romance interest :smiley: ), so it’s fun to hear that you hate her in a good way.

I find her extremely exhausting :grinning:

She’s a complex character. From one point of view, yes. she represents this image of absolute corporate agent who tries to monetise and turn into PR absolutely everythng,

But from another, you must remember that unlike other leaders like CEO or Brand she had absolutely no choice in the matter. She was literally created to act this way on genetical level and indoctrinated from birth, She’s basically new type of human, homo coproraticus or something.

I love during her sex scene and moments after that how you can see some moments of self-realisation of this and attempts to find personal release (possibly through random sex, classic, you know).

This made really invested in her. I wonder, if there is some moment of rebellion for her in the future. :wink:

Can’t like 'em all. Good thing interactive fiction lets you choose paths where you see certain characters more or less, depending on your preferences. At least for the most part. :grin:

Guess you’ll have to wait and see. And even if there is, it might not be present in all branches of the story. :shushing_face:

Well, it’s a huge thing, so it should be something for what she (and of course you if you are helping her) will have to fight a hard fight. :grinning:

No update today.

Deadline for current update: Complete Stillwater one night stand likely first half of April(explicit stuff included)
Deadline for the rest in this segment: Varies. April.

Really good flow on Stillwater scene, so I didn’t do the fixes yet, unfortunately. :stuck_out_tongue:

Just remember that she’s a suspect for what’s going on. Your hard fight may end up being very different from what you expect. :innocent:

Well Mari definitely make me tired, super obsessed and aloof definitely have no chill.

Sure. This ambivalency makes her quite the femme fatale of your story, which is why I’m so invested in her :kissing_heart:

I highly recommend to play through her sex scene, there is so much character delevopment and just fun stuff there.

One of my favourite moment was when during BDSM session I ask her to be called “Mommy”. She was confused about this contrasting with her image and had a little breakdown, ranting a bit about being unable having normal family, which was both sad but also absolutely hillarious in the context :rofl:

Busy today, no work. I’ll focus on the fixes next, then back to Stillwater.

:grin:

It’s kind of unfortunate that there’s so much “non-explicit” content in the explicit scenes, but it’s not like I can do that stuff separately either. Bummer for those who don’t want to see the explicit stuff but would want to see the “context”, so to speak.

Also, good to know the effort I put even into random small things like that didn’t go to waste. :slight_smile:
