House Party 0.11.3 Stable Release

 
Hey guys!
 
Here’s the stable release for the 0.11.x series!  Lots of technical and graphical updates overall, and a little more story for you.  Next update cycle will focus on Madison’s main story events.  Enjoy!
 
CHANGE LOG:
 

Implemented ability to unlock achievements both locally and on Steam
Implemented logic for upcoming DLC Explicit Content Add-On (Uncensored Patch) for Steam
Implemented partial Russian localization
Fixed an issue with some phantom shadows
Fixed an issue where the camera audio and visuals weren’t working when snapping a picture
Fixed an issue where the escape menu can sometimes get stuck on the screen
Fixed an issue where Amy wouldn’t change into her alternate outfit
Increased the radius of Ashley’s Top hit box slightly
Fixed an issue where some Interactive Items weren’t initializing properly
Fixed achievements so they won’t fail to pop up if a dialogue or other important UI element is on display
Fine-tuned lip syncing
Improved animations for laying and oral sex
Fixed Brittney’s crooked head in her sittings animations
Fixed Ashley’s eyelids blinking trough each other
Added more achievement images
Made the mound of dirt brighter
Ashley’s prank vs. Madison (if not caught in the closet) will now break/remove the Madison Smooth Operator reward if the player did not use it yet
Fixed an issue that was keeping Madison bra-less after any Sibling Warfare/prank “ending”
Being needy af towards Madison after she clearly indicates that you should leave her general vicinity will fail Smooth Operator: Madison.
Fixed a couple typos
Madison will no longer follow the player past the slider during the finale of her Drunk and Disorderly, and will instead pause dramatically near the slider door for her final showdown with the “worst of her stock”
Added two other sensible dialogue routes to the game that will allow the player to ask Katherine about hacking phones
Amy will no longer mention her stubbed toe via dialogue if the player is already speaking to another NPC
There are now overhears programmed for Frank to beat the player up if the player gives Madison a beer while near him.
Fixed reference in Ashley’s story for more “Quest : 0” naming issues.
Madison can now be given beers again after the player fails out of Humiliate Ashley by leaving a door(s) unlocked.
Ashley running into an unlocked bathroom during Humiliate Ashley will now actually fail the quest that was the catalyst for her running into a bathroom in the first place.
Frank’s overhears during Madison’s Drunk and Disorderly now take into account possible mental injuries he may have sustained in pursuit of getting a better look at Katherine.
Once Madison is well on her way to being shitfaced, she will redirect her default dialogue to a more appropriate drunk line until her D&D is completed.
Fixed an issue that would cause Madison’s interactions to break if she reached the master bathroom before yelling at Patrick near the finale of her Smooth Operator opportunity

House Party 0.11.2 Released to Beta Testers

 
 
Hey guys,
 
If you are already a Beta Patron or would would like to learn how to become one click here.
 
Here’s House Party 0.11.2 Beta!  Mostly tweaks and fixes in this version, and Madison’s reward system is working.  We also tweaked out some of the other character’s dialogues so that if you have negative interactions with them, it’s less forgiving in terms of their relationship status with you, however, you can now redeem yourself by completing Madison’s Smooth Operator quest.
 
There are also a few new sex animations in this version (though they still need some tweaking).  We’ll have them polished up by next week’s build, which is slated as a stable release.
 
We’ve also got some new redesigned models coming in.  To date, we’ve got Rachael, Amy, Brittney, and Vickie in addition to Stephanie, so we’ll be implementing those in the coming weeks as well.
 
Enjoy!

Fixed an issue that was causing a response from the player to Patrick and Ashley to be miniaturized
Slider door will now auto-unlock after a few seconds following the end of Madison’s Drunk and Disorderly so that NPCs who may be going through the door don’t bounce off it like a super dumb looking bird
Giving Madison’s phone to her first will no longer result in being unable to pursue her Smooth Operator opportunity
Player can now fail Madison’s Smooth Operator opportunity if they insist on being a jerk multiple times and opt for no take-backsies
