Libra Adult Patch, Steam and Shipping Update!

Posted by MiKandi Japan (Creator)

Vampire Princess Army,

Today is an important flash update about adult patches, Steam, and reward shipping! 

Adult Patch (for PHYSICAL Game Only)

We recently sent out a notification from BackerKit to all VPA members who's reward tiers include the physical copy of LotVP. Please check your email for instructions on how to obtain the adult patch. Also, once at the download page, please be sure to read some additional information regarding this special patch. Thank you!

Patch FAQ

Q: After I install the adult patch, the game crashes, wont start, I receive an error message, etc.

A: We are aware that some backers are experiencing this issue. As soon as we determine the cause, we will work with backers directly to make sure it's working for them.

In the meantime, if you do encounter an error related to this patch, please direct message us here or email us at mikandijapan[at]gmail[dot]com and please include...

  • Your backer name
  • The error message (in a screenshot if possible) Example: Task No.0 Adr : 0x3681f8d[0x1f8d] (0x4b0) Command : @gload
  • Your operating system. Example: Windows 10 Home 64bit
  • Your System Specs: Processor, RAM, Video Card. To find your system specs, here are two links that should help: Link 1, Link 2
  • An explanation of what you were doing at the time the error occurred.

Thank you to those who have already reached out to us with their reports!

Q: Is the patch required for me to play Libra?

A: No. The patch is optional and intended for those that wish to explore Libra's "erotic" interludes.

Q: Is the patch uncensored?

A: Yes.

Q: Is this patch for the digital version of the game?

A: No. Physical copies only. We will announce the full details of the digital adult patch soon.

Q: Are there bonus scenes?

A: Yes. Finish each girl's route (Mari, Calen, Lycoris, Aoi) to unlock them all.

Q: Harem Scene?

A: Yes. We've got harem, too.

So... lewd scene lovers, what are you waiting for? If you want to whet your appetite to LotVP's ecchi side, check your email for the download instructions, then grab your patch!

Steam Game Update

Just to review, as you already know, the May 16th launch delay was because of Steam achievements and trading cards (Update #54). We then submitted the game on the 18th: (Update #55). 

What's happened since then?   

While Steam was reviewing the game, we kept testing its stability. On the 23rd, the programming team discovered an issue that both MiKandi Japan and XERO felt was problematic enough that it should be fixed before we launch the game. The Steam code is pushing the CPU higher than the physical version of the game. The program team is worried that computers with our game's listed minimum specifications can bog down or even crash during visually heavy action scenes.

As everyone knows this is our first game on Steam and so we've had to learn a lot of new things in relation to the Steam ecosystem. Steam has actually approved us (it happened on the 24th), but we want to have this CPU issue fixed before we announce a launch date (to prevent a second false start). 

A lot of people have been asking, and are hoping that the Steam version of the adult patch will be released simultaneously with the game. Today we can confirm that YES it will be! Please realize though that after the CPU issue is fixed, the program team will still need time to test that the adult patch is working properly. As soon as they give us the thumbs up, we can set a new launch date.

Shipping Update  

In the meantime, we have been focusing on shipping backers rewards. In the next 3 days we should have all of the backer rewards shipped out (**except for delayed items which we've contacted backers about directly**).

The NEW, super awesome official Libra cosplay disc "TRINITY" was one of the delayed rewards but it's finally shipping out. The wait was DEFINITELY worth it! Didn't grab it (the disc!)? Pick it up on LvXero!

      @Ash : We're glad to hear it! ^_^

      @TarzangEng : We'll be sure to let you know of all future projects! I don't think Libra will make you cry like you've described. Pee... maybe. That all depends on your weakness to vampire auras. Hehe.

      @Ross : Interesting. I'll send that info along to the programming team. Cheers!

      To be fair they have clearly stated this throughout the campaign so you can't really hold that against them imo. Otherwise I agree but their reasoning of the patching situation is, as far as I know, because they were under the impression that Kickstarter does not allow adult-themed content whatsoever. They've later told me they will take it into consideration for future projects so I'm staying hopeful until we will be shown otherwise.

      Personally i have a very different thought. Why is the game I receive even a child version. I don't get why you would force everyone to need a patch. The physical game should be the adult version. If you wanted you could have made the option to turn the content off in the settings. Really a royal pain in the a**. Don't understand why you did it. If you can give me a logical reason I will not mind all that much but if it is not a valid argument it is going to color my view of your work and capabilities very greatly.

      Can't wait to get it on Steam. Let us know if you are planning for another project. If this turns out well... I will back you guys again.

      I really hope it is good though and not like another game that makes the backers cry like an anime fan on prom night

      Has anybody tried the game on Wine? Mine hasn't arrived just yet, so I thought I'd ask.
