Player can no longer sic Madison on Patrick at highly inopportune times that could lead to broken 0.12.x content
Player will no longer have the Throw Beer On option with Madison during the final sequence(s) of 0.12.x content due to a very, very crowded radial menu
Amy will no longer try to walk to Katherine repeatedly after speaking to her about Stephanie’s intentions while Katherine is sick in the downstairs bathroom
Added self-limiting criteria to a number of events in the game to prevent them from needlessly setting the same value repeatedly and clogging up our precious Debug Log
Stephanie will not put her own underwear back on after the “$50 exchange” with the Player after several seconds
Patrick’s behavior after the end of “Family Time” is now less rigid, and he won’t doggedly attempt to access the downstairs bathroom repeatedly if it is locked
Madison no longer cares what state of dress the Player is in if they should fail her “endurance”/stroke test during Like a French Girl
It should no longer be possible for Madison to loop through her “endurance”/stroke test dialogues should the player fail the test during Like a French Girl
When saving and loading a game during Like a French Girl (when In Progress), Derek will kneel back down
If Like a French Girl is In Progress and the player was naked and saved, loading that game will no longer result in the player being fully dressed
Derek will no longer stay locked in a permanent state of planet-scorching, self-sustaining, nuclear rage towards the Player if the Player experiences a magical moment with Frank after the High and Dry opportunity. TLDR: Derek is less jelly.
Player and Stephanie won’t immediately get dressed like speed demons after they complete their fornication
Slightly tweaked availability slightly of Amy’s new “GTFO AMY I NEED TO HAVE SEX WITH THIS PERSON RIGHT NOW AND HERE IS AN EXCUSE” (internal ID reference) response option
Added a few more safeguards to prevent Derek from magically warping into the scene once Like a French Girl has started
Stephanie’s recovery from various states of inebriation and the effects this has on her behavior should be more consistent, including across save-games
The “item hunt” phase of Stephanie’s Meltdown-initiated content should now resolve more reliably
Katherine will no longer respond to the Cell Phone Jammer if waiting for the player to hook up with her (naked on the bed) or in the middle of an intimacy act. She may, however, wave it frantically around in the air as she searches for dem bars
Adjusted some of Rachael’s post-dare “get dressed” behaviors to coincide with changes to her clothing in 0.12.x
Corrected an issue that could cause Derek to use redundant dialogue if his shirt was already off prior to Madison’s “art show”
Player can no longer Rummage through the Orange Bin in the garage multiple times as part of Amy’s Scavenger Hunt, presumably in order to amass a treasure trove of panties like some kinky dragon-kin
Tied in Achievement images for newly added Achievements
Fixed an issue that could cause various character dialogues and events to be unavailable after finishing or failing Madison’s new content
Derek will no longer put his shirt back on after Madison’s “art show” if the Player has already progressed past a certain point in Amy’s Scavenger Hunt
Adjusted NPC placement during a select few moments throughout Madison’s new content
Cleaned up Katherine’s “greeting” behavior after the Player successfully helps Stephanie with Katherine’s bathroom emergency
Made minor tweaks to Rachael’s dare-text receipt behavior to improve consistency across certain dare possibilities and prevent Rachael from potentially holding her phone in her hand for the rest of the party…or maybe that is just an unlisted superglue dare? …Nah.
The Player and Amy will no longer be auto-warped to the center of the Spare Room if the conditions for getting intimate with Amy are not met when the player propositions her
Made minor adjustments to Amy’s behavior between Derek congratulating the player for earning Ashley’s trust and Ashley showing the player her room and trying to get away from Amy’s sorority pitch
In the side story “A Vickie Vixen Valentine”, fixed an issue that could render the master bedroom door unable to be knocked on IF Vickie’s sprint into the master bedroom was exceptionally fast

In the side story “A Vickie Vixen Valentine”, made various minor emote/reaction tweaks to Vickie as needed to accommodate other 0.12.x AVVV story adjustments
In the side story “A Vickie Vixen Valentine”, made small dialogue and thoughtbubble tweaks to accommodate other 0.12.x AVVV story adjustments and rectify one or two VA inconsistencies
In the side story “A Vickie Vixen Valentine”, Vickie will no longer react to the player getting near the locked slider door based solely on proximity, which was causing some players not to experience the full extent of her flexibility and wardrobe
In the side story “A Vickie Vixen Valentine”, resolved an issue that would cause an opportunity to start and log its start twice
In the side story “A Vickie Vixen Valentine”, the player needs to be a bit closer to Vickie in order to initiate sex. No more big-dicking from across the room
In the side story “A Vickie Vixen Valentine”, fixed an issue that would prevent the Player from being able to follow up with additional intimacy with Vickie or talk to her at all if she finished a blowjob first.

In the side story “A Vickie Vixen Valentine”, masturbating at a certain time while also consuming the chocolate bar will no longer result in the Player’s position being unchanged upon the game fading back in to play Never Have I Ever with Vickie. This is a feature, not a nerf…obviously

Patrick now knows how to not only pronounce, but also spell Brittney’s name
Fixed an issue was causing Ashley to reference an incorrect character under certain circumstances when verifying if the soda was tampered with
Fixed an issue that could prevent the Player from progressing further with Rachael’s dares under select circumstances (this fix allows the player to continue selecting more dares, it does NOT change the choices required to engage in intimacy/finish her dare content)
Madison will wait a bit longer to stop Shoo-ing others out of her bedroom during the finale of Magnum Opus/new 0.12.x content
Player can fail Amy’s Scavenger Hunt if they are particularly aggressive in turning down certain dare requests from her (requires repeated choices)
Added more control to Amy’s roaming during her Goodbye Kitty selfie sequnce during her Scavenger Hunt, a lack of which was contributing to Amy potentially walking away from the Hot Tub during her Scavenger Hunt finale
Player should no longer be able to ask about Scavenger Hunt steps from Amy while in the middle of the Hot Tub finale of the Scavenger Hunt (dialogue response; does not remove the failure-causing Truth or Dare response option)
Amy will no longer try to cover herself up while also undressing and changing during the Goodbye Kitty selfie sequence
Choosing the Truth or Dare response specifically mentioning the Scavenger Hunt in front of Brittney while in the Hot Tub will now officially fail the Scavenger Hunt quest and release Amy to roam around again. Will no longer confusingly leave missing dialogues and responses for the player to choose which were in reality doing nothing.
Ashley will now remember that the Player untied her top minutes beforehand early on in the game, and will not allow them to progress with the prank vs. Madison until the Player resolves their dispute with grace, empathy, and aplomb
Tweaks to Ashley’s top reactions; it is possible to indirectly fail out of some content if the player repeatedly unties Ashley’s top
Fixed an issue that could prevent Ashley from returning to her room after being humiliated, when only given the bathroom skeleton key back after the Opportunity completes
The player should no longer be able to inadvertently trigger the Family Time sequence with Ashley and Patrick immediately after Madison’s art show until they’ve finished the sacred duty of inspecting Stephanie’s panty situation alongside Patrick

Added more protections to prevent Amy from bugging out due to roaming state or event interruptions between Madison’s “art show” and the end of her new 0.12.x content

Ashley will only get like, totes super mad at the Player about being given the cell phone jammer at very specific times

The Player can complete the prank vs. Madison towards the very beginning of her new content if it is already underway…but not without consequences
Fixed issue that occurred when the player was being intimate with Madison’s…statue and suddenly decided to put away his junk. Also adapted said statue to new genital mechanics
