February 9th Bug-Fixing Build

A lot of bugs have been reported lately, so I’ve prepared a bug-fixing build. The build also contains one new feature; although it’s a minor one, it has the potential to be expanded and given more utility in the future.

To read a list of everything that changed in the latest build, scroll down this artwork of Osana drawn in the Persona 5 art style by NoicePotato!

If the image looks cropped, that’s because it is; the full image is huuuuuge! Click here to see the complete illustration!

Pool’s Closed

Previously, it was impossible to complete any Mission Mode mission that involved poisoning a bully, because there was never a point in time when the player had an opportunity to poison their food; instead of eating food at lunchtime, they sunbathed at the pool instead, which made them some of the only students who never ate food at any point during the schoolday.

So, I’ve added a method for changing the bullies’ routine; preventing access to the pool. It is now possible to put a sign in front of the pool which announces that the pool is off-limits. (The sign is found in the same storage closet where many other useful items are found.) If you put this sign at the top of the pool stairs, the bullies won’t sunbathe at lunchtime, and the Sports Club will jog instead of swim for their after-school club activity. This sign can only be placed before lunchtime; after lunchtime, it will be too late for the news of the closed pool to reach anyone, and it won’t affect anyone’s routine.

Although it’s currently only possible to close off the pool, I might decide to expand this feature so that it’s possible to close off any arbitrary area in the school. There are plenty of ways this could help you! For example, if you kill a rival in the gym, you could drop an “Off Limits!” sign in front of the gym, so that you could dismember the rival’s corpse without worrying about anyone walking in on you. This feature was put into the game purely to accommodate players of Mission Mode, but it might actually become a full-fledged mechanic in the future…

I acknowledge that the mechanic is currently a bit imbalanced; making an area off-limits is an incredibly valuable ability, and it should require more work than just plopping a sign on the ground. In the future, I think that this mechanic should require a bit more work from the player. One option is to make the sign much more difficult to access. Another concept is to somehow make the pool area become dangerous, which would make the faculty declare it off-limits until the danger has been removed. Another idea is that the player could be given the ability to join the student council, which would give the player the authority to declare certain areas of the school as “off-limits.” Hmm…there are a lot of different ideas to consider.

Anyway, now that it’s possible to kill the bullies with poison, I wonder if anyone would be bold enough to try completing this mission?

Fixes, Changes, Additions

  • Fixed bug that would prevent Osana from properly exiting her “calling the police” state if she witnessed evidence that Yandere-chan was a murderer while she was in the process of calling the police to report Raibaru’s death.
  • Fixed bug that would make a student’s bento float in midair if they were lured away from their bento with a giggle, and then distracted by another giggle while walking back to their bento.
  • Fixed bug that caused Osana, Raibaru, and the bully girls to not behave properly if the player saved the game while those characters were sunbathing and then reloaded the save.
  • Fixed bug that would cause Yandere-chan to dip her mop into the wrong bucket if she was standing near two buckets and the player tried to activate the prompt over one of them.
  • Fixed bug that was preventing the Student Council from pepper-spraying Yandere-chan if she tried to attack them from the front.
  • Attempted to fix bug that would occur if a student was attempting to investigate a dropped weapon that was on top of a table.
  • Fixed bug that would make the sewer permanently appear onscreen if the player played the Light Music Club’s rhythm minigame.
  • Attempted to eliminate the possibility that a corpse could fail to float down the sewer pipe after falling down there.
  • Fixed bug that caused Raibaru to stop following Osana if the player arranged a meeting with her at 3:30 AM.
  • Fixed bug that would cause Raibaru to perpetually “cheer” for Osana whenever the player loaded a save.
  • Fixed bug that caused problems to occur if Osana dodged a bucket of gasoline during any of her events.
  • Fixed bug that prevented the player from being able to unlock the “Push” icon on the Demo Checklist.
  • Fixed bug that caused the tape player’s animation speed to be dependent on the player’s framerate.
  • Fixed bug that made the Calendar screen laggy and choppy.
  • The incinerator area is now surrounded by chain-link fences instead of walls, and the incinerator area now has a door. This is part of an upcoming update to the incinerator area. It’s not finished yet, but I hope you’ll look forward to the end result!

  1. Hey yandere dev, the last few times you’ve tried posting an imgur link, it hasn’t worked. People have been mentioning it, but I don’t know if you’ve seen.

  2. Hey! I was just wondering, for the medibang contest, what is the deadline? I’m working on something and I want to know how fast I have to get it done..

  3. i found a glitch of where u hold up the sign up in people they dont say anything but student councill if they catch they say its a weapon and i cant put the sign near the pool

  4. Great work on the game so far, Yandere Dev! Can’t wait to experience these changes for myself. But… I can’t access the imgur link you’ve posted here. Multiple pople have been saying the same thing as well. Other than that, keep up with the progress you’re making! And take care of yourself too!

  5. Wow, now the “killer way” is more difficult than before. Now is more dangerous to dispose of a corps in the incinerator unless you cover the corpses with a garbage bag! Hmm…the game is becoming more and more interesting! So proud of you of the work on the game so far!
    And i have a Question! You, as the creator of the game, how’s better to play YS? With keyboard and mouse or xbox 360 controller?
    Thanks!

    • Actually I tested the thing with the gardening club leader and osana and the delinquents didn’t even see their bodies lol

  6. hey yandere dev i dunno if you did this or maybe not but the bangsnap only explodes on the wall not on the ground pls fix it

  7. I have a question. When Ayano’s sanity goes go 0% why are we still seeing Osana Najimi‘s Shadow if Osana is already in the demo? Is that a bug? 🤔

    • No, it was what going to happen in her week. When amai is officially done at the 2nd week %0 sanity shadow is going to be Amais. (Sorry for bad grammar either)

  8. Hey yandere dev can you fix that when all the bully girls dead except for kokoro then when she was going to tanning her swimsuit changes her skin color again.

  9. Ooo, that is so cool! I’d love to be able to join the SC. Will we ever be able to join the bullies too? If not thats chill, i am pumped for this 🙂

  10. It’s time for 24 year old university student to be cringy fanboi “omg Devpai’s considering letting us join the student council ❤ I wanted that for like sooo looong ❤ " (1.1)

    Any way, i'm definitely looking forward to seeing where this idea goes, particularly regards how useful the incinerator is. I was one of the people that claimed it was… unreasonably effective in the discipline of corpse disposal.

    I'm also DEFINITELY (see 1.1) looking forward to this concept of marking areas as out of bounds. Given that one of the most common ways of getting caught while committing murder is by students walking around and discovering the body that's a massive advantage to the player so it will be interesting to see how difficult you think we should have it to earn that ability.

  11. i found a bug where if you save the game with the raincoat on and then you load the save you have the raincoat on but it doesnt show and when you try to take it off it freezes the character, i dont know if this bug is still in the game but its happened to me multiple times

  12. Yanderedev, one thing, in the game You can traje several types of uniforms and several types of style to senpai, but You reset the day everything You chose is no longer there, everyone wear the original uniform and senpai looks the same as always again

  13. Speaking of Demo Checklist, whenever you complete an Elimination Method, the game does not Recognize that you have completed the Elimination Methods.

  14. Hey does someone know how to open the easter egg menu? It says that it’s ? but on my keyboard (swedish) the ? and + is on the same key so it only speeds up time.

  15. hey yan-dev! So I was messing around with the poster,, I first figured out when you ask a student to follow you and go to the pool,, while the sign was up they still go. Another thing, I went in front of a student council member with the sign in my hands, she sent me to the guidance councilor and she said, “You were spotted carrying a dangerous weapon.”????

  16. I think I found a bug… For some reason raibaru and osana skip their convo in the morning and just go straight to the classroom… Was this updated? Cause it just says that in the schedule it’s still there
