I have the same problem. I bought this game from iWin, not realizing it would have so many bugs (no music, no practice tones, food complaints, etc.). I didn’t know about this site until I went searching for bug fixes. After reading through the forums, I’m still not sure what I can do–do I have to pay double to get an up-to-date version with the new features? Yes, the game is great, but that doesn’t seem fair. (I buy a LOT of computer games, and I haven’t run into this problem before; usually all the game sites have the most recent upgrade.)
Considering the high replayability of this game, I was also surprised that the player avatars are so limited, especially for women (just three faces). I did download the new female avatars posted in the forum, and although they may be showing up for the other musicians, they aren’t showing up when I pick the avatar I want to play. I would also love more diverse avatars (these all look like honor students from lily-white suburbia). Specifically, I would like to play as a multiracial Jamaican street chick with dreads. You can whip that up, right?
Geez, now I sound like my whining band mates–nothing but complaints no matter what I do for them. So here’s a big compliment–I love the way you have made the config file so transparent, that’s a brilliant idea!
Thanks for a really cool game, and please let me know if there’s any way to get an update with the publicist, Moe’s, bug fixes, etc.
