Howdy y’all. Progress has been slow and difficult but at least there’s some progress. I think I have codecs, encoding, et al. in a solid state. Wound up not using Lagrith since just my source files would have been nearly a terabyte, UV works fine so far.
Had a setback. Got replies from all of the publishers I sent my book to and none bit. Got depressed. Agency I was courting to manage my acting decided to pull some treacherous shit and leave me high and dry. Got more depressed. My 2 dollar an hour job got most of the work sent to India devaluing said work to 50 cents an hour. Quit job. Got very, very depressed. Spent pitiful last check on grass. Proceeded to get undepressed. Now back to working on this sumbitch while trying to self-publish. (not giving out details, I’d prefer to remain as just some faggot online and unknown offline)
As a result of said stressful events it has been extremely hard to muster energy, let alone arousal. I’m really hoping it’s not effecting my work. That said, I’ve been putting a lot of careful effort in so I think it’ll be pretty good.
TL;DR Boo hoo, whine, my penis.
Release: Late August. Let’s call it the last weekend to be safe. If that isn’t soon enough I can’t really do much for you.
P.S. As always, thank you for the encouragement (and even offers of help (they are appreciated, but I’m wary of online co-ops)).
P.P.S. I have no clue where Blue/s/ got to. Nor his Fap Hero project. I am not in contact with him so I cannot give updates, sorry. Please stop asking. :)
I’m working on it. I’m also working what amounts to a 2 dollar an hour job to keep the bill collectors at bay while doing overnight shoots on student films for free so that someday I might not have to work a 2 dollar an hour job.
I’m hoping to have FH 2 finished in August. I haven’t been updating because I haven’t had anything huge to update with. Right now I’m working on Round 1 and trying to get some decent screencaps for dialogue boxes.
Breath play is scrapped, I’ve got too much on the plate already to worry about making it work. There’s going to be two reward rounds. One ‘vanilla’, one with futa’n’such that will have a timestamp for skipping. There will be an optional beat bar during the rest periods for those who don’t feel like stopping. There will be either two versions or a dual audio track. I don’t know yet. I don’t even want to think about voice right now.
I truly appreciate y’all’s passion, but I’m not a deadlines kind of guy. Just a faggot.
Right, just a couple features that I want to clear before I go nuts with them. Pretty simple yes/no votes here.
First up is breath play. Basically, the directions might include holding your breath or matching your breathing with the fap rhythm. Nothing more radical than that, I’m not out to kill anyone (excepting la petite mort).
Second, should I try and get VA’s. I know there are a few kinky VA’s on /soc/ and I might be able to interest a few of the girls I know. No promises, but is this something that matters enough to you for me to pursue it. IF I do so it WILL add to production time. You can’t rush art and I’m fairly picky.
What up folks? So…back on my brother’s floor. And damn glad to have a place to stay. On the good news side of things my brother and his wife found out about FH and think it’s A: Hilarious and B: Sort of cool (they’re pretty kinky people). So I’ve got a lot more leeway to work now. HUZZAH!
Fap Hero 2 is now in production. I have Plans and I intend the new project to improve upon the last.
-Tutorial round for those wondering what the hell to do.
-More explicit directions.
-Beat change warnings (and possibly a bigger beat bar)
-If my dumb ass can figure out how to do it, encoding that makes some kind of sense.

Keep in mind I’m JUST getting started on it so it’ll be a few months. In the meantime stay tuned for a Fap Hero project from Blue/s over on 4chan. It looks like he’s doing an awesome job and I can’t wait to see it.
As I’m sure you’ve all noticed I did not make the deadline I set for myself. I can’t really go into why not because it’s personal, frustrating, depressing, and, frankly, no one’s business but my own.
The sad reality is that I am not in a place where I have time to do anything but survive. I’m a stubborn son of a bitch so I’m trying to dig myself a space where I can breath and possibly get back to life as usual but I’m not sure when that’s going to be.
THAT SAID I still desperately want to finish this second project and if I ever get the opportunity to do so I will. Just don’t expect anything soon.
How are you my darling perverts? Well, I hope. I’ve been out of town for a couple weeks and am hazily trying to reorient myself towards the direction of actually editing. This has been complicated by my trying to ready a book for the scrutiny of the feared TOR Publishers. While editing FH 2 is fun, editing the book could get me off my brother’s floor. NOT THAT I’VE STOPPED WORKING ON FH 2! (before you all go rabid on me) The pace has just slowed a mite.
Right, enough excuses. I have another couple polls for you.
The first is in regards to music:
And the last is very simple. Futa got lots of votes, loooooots of votes. It pretty much tied with loli. But I’ve seen lots of people planning to give this amiss because of the /d/ material. I want to make these accessible to as many of you as possible so I’m going to have a really basic vote. (There will be no vote on loli. You cannot take my lolis from me. It is known.)
Howdy y’all. Been a weird week. Got slain by a bad case of authentic Indian food and am now battling the BEST slew of health problems. (I won’t go into details as they would either disgust or arouse and I’m not good with either of those).
MORE IMPORTANTLY! I figured it was about time to start collecting data on what people want to see in the new Fap Hero. The first poll is for content. I’m open to suggestions but just to get it out there there are a few things I WON’T do. Scat, vore, blood, and piss are right out, also no nipple penetration. I just can’t work with those, bad experiences, dark past, all that jazz. Other than that, go nuts. I’m sure you can think of something that I’ve not thought to put in and that it will briefly disgust me before joining my other fetishes.
Second poll is for dem features. I’ve been keeping track of what people were talking about in the FH thread and have included the ones I think I can realistically do. Keep in mind that I won’t just be choosing ONE of these, but if there’s one that doesn’t pique interest I won’t bother with it. A soft flash to make it easier to keep track of the beat, warnings for upcoming tempo changes, and more variation in beat patterns have already made the cut, so no worries.
Finally, I see that Demoness has made the top of the hosting votes. I’m pleased to see it as that was my favorite among them as well. What I need to know is if THIS is the kind of Demoness you’d like to see:
