Why VoF!? WHY!!!???

Hey guys. We are here (even though we don't want to be) for an update on VoF. Yes, a stinking update on a game that has been completed since February 2019. So sit down, grab some snacks, and listen to the crappy tale of our woes! Sis, how about you start it off...

Okay, so a couple of days ago, we were looking at a gameplay video of VoF on YouTube. During one of the scenes, we noticed that the lighting was weird looking. At the time we didn't think much of it, until...THE GAME BLEW UP!

Girl what are you talking about!? The game didn't blow up! Y'know what, I'll just tell the story!

So like that crazy gal was saying, we didn't think much of it, until we checked the VoF files on our end, and LONG AND BEHOLD, the glitch manifested itself and I'm not going to lie, I was about to chuck my computer out of the window!

She was going to make that computer believe it could fly!

But no worries, we have found the issue, and have updated the lighting file! So, like always, here is the changelog (v 2.2.4):

  • Updated Lighting File

  • Updated v 2.2.4 patch

Since we were already messing with the files of VoF, we also decided to update the "VoF Tip Sheet". We found out that a lot of people were abandoning the game because they were getting stuck on the "Nightmare Maze". So we added a hint on there on how to conquer the "Nightmare Maze" like a pro.

Alright now, we really hope that VoF gets its life, and stops creating problems. We are working hard on other things, so it gets a little agitating that we STILL have to come back to it. But we hope you enjoyed our sad little tale, and this is Jen&Sis...signing off!

Beta testers!? No, this game needs a goddamn exorcist!
I still haven't started yet. So at least for one of your players, it turned out to be fortunate.

Well we are glad you was spared from the wrath of our problem child. We want to make sure people enjoy our hard work to the fullest without problems arising.

But we're excited that your interested in the game. We hope you like it when you get a chance to play it.

I do a lot of testing both indie and pro. And that's because I'm a kind of bug magnet. So I 100% would've ran into it.

One thing I will say is that the downloads page is kind of confusing from a "what do I download to play the most up-to-date version?" standpoint. Because of the dates on the files being obviously wrong we can't go with that. That's likely out of your hands and is a site issue (I assume it doesn't update). But the version numbers seem kinda weird too.

I grabbed:
Voices of Friendship v 2.2.4
362 downloads01/07/2019 02:30 PM

because it seems to be the base game.

Then I saw:
Voices of Friendship v 1.2.4 Patch (v 1.2.5)
7 downloads01/08/2019 02:33 PM

I grabbed it anyway because it mentions ".2.5" which coincides with your blog post here but going by the name... it's a patch for a version of the game that's an entire whole number lower than current, and then just for the tiny update of a 0.0.1? I just assumed it's supposed to say 2.2.5 instead. Because it doesn't seem relevant to download something that's a whole version number behind the other files.

And the 3rd file I just ignored because I figured it's for people who already had a version lower than 2.2.4.

Oh wow, now that you put it like that, we can see why it can get confusing.

Okay, if you want to play a new game just download version 2.2.4. The version 1.2.5 patch was for a VERY OLD version of the game that crashed (v 1.2.4) that we did a update to, because people were still using that version at the time. I think we are safe enough to take that patch off, because that old version should have fazed out by now. But thank you again for letting us know. We will get that taken care of soon.

Also, since your a bug magnet, let us know if you run into anything detrimental. We want to move on from our first game, but it seems like we always stay coming back. Lol also through your gameplay, if you need ANY help, you can contact us jen.sis.productions@gmail.com and we'll help you through the game there. :-)
