Well, the time is now definite. We have been experiencing a greater-than-expected number of bugs in this large, complex episode and have had to slip everything by a week to stomp them all but Wolfschadowe has just committed to a final release schedule.

Episode 1.7 (Chapter 7) of Brad's Erotic Week will be released to our "Early Release" users on Monday, November 20 and the General Public release will be on Monday, November 27.

This one hasn't been easy, folks and we appreciate everyone's patience during the ridiculously long delay between 1.6 and 1.7. Future episodes will be much more manageable and should be back on a reasonable release schedule of 3 to 5 months per episode.

I'm so glad to hear this, but personally I wouldn't mind waiting a few more weeks until most bugs are squashed properly :lol:

The more people playing the game the better as it helps drive the bugs into the open where Wolf and the team can stomp them.

Yup. An example of that is the "Early Release." Our supporters get the game a week early but bug hunting continues furiously during that week before the general public release. [img]images/icones/icon13.gif[/img]

Well, I hate doing this but the previously mentioned bugs have overwhelmed us and the next release will have to be delayed another week to allow for that. We ARE getting them resolved but there were just so many of them that it has taken more time than expected. The sheer complexity of the new episode in which some already existing side characters have been promoted to major status worked against us as well.

New scheduled dates are:

Early release for existing $25.00 and above supporters - November 27
General release for all public users - December 4

After all this problems in adding the new 3 girls I'm very happy that patrons decided on this, I know that the main reason was to not lose all the saves when they would have added at the end, but I liked very much 2 of them and I don't know if wolfschadowe would have done with all 3.
I'm sure that he had that idea, but this is a very big game if you think at what work would have been only add one, begin all that for other 2 time could break the most indomitable will.
Personally I'm so astonished to what he has put in this games that I already know that I won't see all the scenaries, so I can understand what effort he is doing to create BEW.

That was a concern but was corrected early on. The real problems came about when the "new, romantic" content for each girl was merged with the already existing "non-romantic" content for the girls who were already in the game. It wasn't just a matter of adding new stuff. Wolf had to go back and add in new content to older scenes that were already complete. That turned out to be very complicated and caused some logic bugs that had to be seen to be believed.

We are getting it fixed and expect to meet the current dates, assuming something terrible doesn't happen when the early release goes to patrons. The way things have been going on this "episode from hell," it wouldn't surprise me but I don't expect any serious problems.

We appreciate the patience and understanding of fans like you and are taking heart in knowing that Episode 8 will be a piece of cake after this one. :lol:

Tempted to say 'famous lat words', but i suspect that you are right. I know from my early professional career that weaving new features into existing operational code is fraught with difficulty: extending existing capabilities that build on the code base is [relatively] straightforward. 8051 Assembler anyone?
