  • Free Money bug (0.42.6)

    Every time I load a saved game, I accrue:

    32 satisfaction
    20031 sil
    1 Exotic Spices
    85 Purse of Kellos Crowns
    1 Focus Assembly
    1 Royal Hairpin

    As a result, I can rapidly accumulate wealth by saving and reloading the game.

    I first noticed after placing the final casino ad on Sunnyshore Island, after upgrading from 0.42.5 via the "lite" patch. I've completed nearly all the available quests; the only ones left when I noticed the bug were Match Maker, Da Orcest Dungeon, and Crystal Clarity. I also have everyone's affection maxed except Quinta (who appears to be impossible) and Bell (who I acquired too late).

    I've provided a save with the bug (Save12) and a save from Are You Afraid of the Dark? (Save11), which I think is the last quest I completed before noticing the bug (and the completion of which should send me on vacation).

    Thanks for your report, we noticed this bug rather recently, it deals with some code that we put in so that save files from older versions can be brought up to date with updates to content they might have already completed getting rewards added in after the fact. We've added in a fix that will prevent it from happening in the future and remove all excess crafting items you have, but we don't have any way to determine how much of the sil, satisfaction, or vendor trash you have is legitimate vs acquired via this bug, as such players who've been affected by this bug may keep it.

    In order to reduce how exploitable this bug is though, I'm going to refrain from mentioning how it is that you prepare your save file to acquire each part of the items you have listed (there are even a few that you don't seem to be getting or haven't noticed). In regards to Quinta's affection, it is possible to max her out, however for many players it would likely involve starting a new save file as those who have been updating along the way haven't gotten any new quests that end the day added in after her recruitment.

      Thanks for the response.

      I haven't been able to figure out how to level up Quinta. She's stuck at one heart with the other four locked. Gifts and conversation don't seem to help.

        Ah! That's what you meant! That's purely a visual bug, it's also been resolved but her affection will progress like everyone else. She begins with 4 hearts filled.
