    1. Tell us about your system, is it a Windows or a Mac? Which version? How many RAM do you have?

    Windows 7 64-bit. System operates with 16 GB of RAM. GeForce GTX 960, confirmed update to latest video driver after initial discovery.

    2. Which version of the game where you running?

    Latest, 0.8.1, in an attempt to test new content for problems. Got startup bug instead. (success?) Reinstalled launcher and game and verified driver up to date after first error discovery in an attempt to resolve. No luck.

    3.Describe the problem clearly by answering questions: What were you trying to do? What actually happened? What were you expecting to happen?

    Attempted to load old game first to verify save fluidity.(EDIT: Save was last used in Version 0.7 release) Got the expected questionnaire, and after answering only the gender preference questions (nothing about clothing, if that matters), I briefly see the Amorous splash (2 pairs of characters waving to one another), and then permanent black screen until force close. Clicking around doesn't seem to do anything useful. A seemingly random music plays, it's different every time. (EDIT: It occurs to me that I believe the last place I was at was the club.) Problem occurs identically if started in fullscreen or windowed or if switched to either or after problem occurs.

    Attempted to start new game to see if something broke in my save or if it became incompatible. Clicking new game ->skip prologue causes a black screen with character creation music. Starting a new game with prologue has no issues until I reach the club, at which point I get a blackout with the club music. Windowed and fullscreen produce identical problems.

    4.We're you able to reproduce the problem? If so, what steps did you take?

    All errors were reproduced in triplicate exactly as described to verify.

    5.Add anything you think is useful to us: additional information, screenshots, vague error-codes, etcetera.

    No error codes are shown and the game doesn't close or explicitly crash.

    Can you sent the old save over through pastebin.org? Looks like something didn't go right :) I still feel your club assets got corrupted. The random music is the club music.

    I could, but as you said, it seems like the club assets got corrupted somehow. Not sure how this could have happened twice in a row, across deletions and re-installs to a new directory. The added point about it happening in a new game entirely also points to the club files. Not really sure how I could go about fixing it or if it's another issue entirely unrelated to the game I'm overlooking.

    Just wanted to drop in and say I'm having the same problem. The game is entirely unplayable now after the 0.81 update. I've uninstalled, reinstalled, updated my graphics driver, and I get a black screen with music playing whenever I try to move to a different area of the club. I've had a couple of instances where I am able to click randomly and talk to Coby which takes me out of the black screen, but am immediately put back into it when I try to use an option on the phone or click a different area again.

    Very odd, given I haven't changed a thing in how transitioning works since v0.7 - and also how its apparently specific to the club and not the other scenes...

    EDIT: Try the attached hotfix. Should report as version 0.8.2a when properly installed.

    Where does this need to be extracted? Put into the windows folder of the game, but it's still showing as 0.8.1.

    <launcher location>/games/amorous/windows, overwrite everything when asked (it should ask even). Just run the .exe afterwards, do not validate using the launcher!

    EDIT: Also hit TAB before loading a save. It should show debug-text onscreen.

    Great! In that case I'll make sure it ends up in v0.9, thanks for testing :)

    It is a confirmed fix for 2 people who had this issue - I'm fairly certain you are not applying it correctly. Does the main menu say the current version is 0.8.2a?

    You only had to overwrite those 3 files, do NOT use the launcher after doing this fix, cause it will complain things are not valid and redownload.

    would it be ok if someone could make a video covering this issue because my stupidity levels are so of the charts trying to solve and understand this.
    I've tried to understand and I failed terribly so if someone would make a video that would be fantastic, if someone does end up making one thank you and i'm sorry for your troubles
