Ok, here is the patch that brings the game to version 1.09
The actual on-sale version is 1.08, which is known to be generally stable. I’m 99% certain 1.09 is even more stable, and better in every way, but as I don’t have access to a vast range of hardware I’d like to get some feedback before I really push it:
Heres the fix list:
1.09 Fixed missing paintball description
Fixed some faulty job salary data
Fixed bug where NPCs don't improve at bowling.
Game no longer runs at 99% of CPU when not topmost window in windowed mode.
Changed to a different sound engine entirely to fix the crashes with some drivers.
Fixed rare crash with job offers.
Fixed bug where save game would fail to load job data correctly.
Introduced idea of 2 actiivties per day on weekends and unemployed days and sick days.
If you had random crashes and had to disable music, I’d really like to know if this version fixes that, as I basically bought a totally new sound system to hopefully fix that stuff.
In addition to crash bugs and fixes, I’ve also introduced the ‘2 activities in a day’ thing, for the weekends, days off ill, and unemployed. I think it makes it slightly too easy, but then, I know the game inside out, so maybe I’m aiming it too difficult. If you have any feedback on that change it is much appreciated. I’ll start a separate thread in a day or two to get feedback on what you’d like beyond this patch.
