For those who are in the Patreon mailing list you should now have access to the beta for the first chapter of the game. Please keep in mind that this is a work in progress so there are elements that may be subject to change.
- Operating system - Location where the error occurred - A description of the bug - The error traceback (if available) - Is the error consistent / can you recreate it multiple times
In terms of feedback/enhancements please leave them in this thread so that we can get them logged and reviewed. While we can't add everything to the VN we look forward to reading first impressions as well as what you would like to see in the final product.
This beta also contains an experimental fix for the Sierra OS (if you have downloaded the Mac version) which should fix an issue that prevents the program from launching correctly, this is something moving forward that we want to apply to other games in the LiS library. For those with access to this OS please could you let us know if you experience any issues launching the game?
Hi everyone, apologies I did not make this clear at the start but you are permitted to take screenshots of this chapter of the beta for social media.
Please though refrain from recordings (eg. YouTube) and streaming (eg. Twitch).
I would ask as the only requirement that you take the screenshot using the 's' key rather than that of the menu as this will also include the UI in the final capture (which includes the beta disclaimer).
This is something we are aiming to fix for the next chapter so that both options of screenshotting are consistent. For those who take part, thanks in advance for taking the time to promote Shining Song Starnova.
In terms of the next chapter of the Patreon beta we currently do not have any additional information on this as we still have a fair bit to do. There will be a separate announcement closer to the time when we have something new.
Be warned, elements of this post may have been influenced by my 'West Country Logic'!
Magpie: And capture the elegance of Ava.

Rellek: Magpie and I are on the same page. Avalicious

bigfoot: Sorzo Looking forward to the mod!

Somasam: Aye, your videos have been quite good Sorzo. Interested to see how you implement the events so far. Now that Icari has dipped below 1000, I am starting to fear that the entire Icari fan club on steam is going to suddenly turn up and unleash absolute hell
Jul 20, 2017 22:04:30 GMT -8
Sorzo: Honestly, I wouldn't particularly mind that.
Jul 20, 2017 22:18:04 GMT -8
Sorzo: It'd be a lot more entertaining than nothing happening for the next few weeks until she's out.
Jul 20, 2017 22:18:35 GMT -8
Sorzo: I want her to lose, don't get me wrong, but there not being any opposition really takes the satisfaction out of it.
Jul 20, 2017 22:20:33 GMT -8
Sorzo: The thought of major drama between Icari and an alliance of everyone else was what motivated me to make the videos to begin with. If there's no drama, there's not much to work with.
Jul 20, 2017 22:25:47 GMT -8
Sorzo: That said, even if Icari's fans don't make a resurgence, odds are things will be interesting after she's gone.

Rellek: And now we've built a federation. The Waifu War never disappoints
Jul 21, 2017 12:32:13 GMT -8
Somasam: What I was interested in was that Magpie heavily implied something was going to happen to the victor. And I didn't doubt him, considering he is more or less a dev now. Perhaps that's what scared off the Tsun empire.
Jul 21, 2017 21:11:57 GMT -8
Somasam: On the other hand, I wonder what Magpie will do if the federation does end up winning.
Jul 21, 2017 21:14:43 GMT -8
Sorzo: Sunrider has its roots stretching back a full decade. I'm not saying everything's set in stone, but the series is Samu's baby. I doubt that the outcome of a forum game will appreciably impact the series' story.
Jul 21, 2017 21:20:52 GMT -8
Sorzo: Though it would be pretty cool if the winning character was given an extra scene or conversation in the next game.
Jul 21, 2017 21:21:57 GMT -8
Sorzo: Which would make it just as well that Cosette and Chigara are already out, since they'd be the hardest to write a bit of fun fluff for.
Jul 21, 2017 21:26:14 GMT -8
Rellek: I think the forum game is just a forum game, and the implications were just to mess with us
