Hello Guys

The latest version of iStripper is 1.2.218 but many of you have an earlier version.

We are in the process of setting up an automatic update system (should be in place very soon) but till it's ready, we count on you to do it manually.

Here are five good reasons to update ISTRIPPER to the latest version :

1/ Have faster and more efficient technical support.
With over 15 versions with different features and user interfaces, our support team can't be as fast as they would be if every user had the same version :)

2/Avoid "technical gap"
We improve the software step by step. The differences between a N-1 and a N version may seem minor, but if you look at 4 or 5 versions back, you see how different they are! Adapting step by step is much easier and more comfortable for you.

3/ Be sure that the games and promotions are running smoothly.
It would be a shame not to be able to play the slot machine, isn't it ^_^? (or the upcoming killer games...)

4/ Have as few bugs as possible!
For instance, the latest version fixes a bug that makes the sliding-right console crash on MAC OS & Windows 7 when the buy effect disappears. We fix 3-5 bugs per version in average.

5/ Don't miss important (or cool) features.

Now that you're craving to update, let me remind you how to proceed:

  • Open the settings
  • Click on "check for updates" at the bottom of the page (below "About").
  • Then, click "yes"

Most important, DO NOT uninstall your current version.

See you on version 1.2.218 Guys!

Hi Kaiju —

I've looked into upgrading a few times, but tend to stick with an older version because (a) it lets me manage previews more directly, which is helpful to use as a shopping list and to remind yourself what all the cards you're thinking of buying are like and (b) it works well enough for me to stick with it despite bugs, slowdowns the longer it runs, etc. If the newer versions didn't try to auto-manage previews for you so much (at least for members who are actually purchasing things and not just building a huge library of free previews), I'd be much more likely to keep up with the latest version.

It would be nice if you informed what changes have been made in the user agreement so that one do not have to read it all when it has changed. 😐

And while I have full confidence in the company and that they act fairly, I do not like it that they can terminate my licence for any reason at all. Or, for that matter, for no reason at all. 😟

With that said, thank you for continuing to improve a already great product. 😊

Personally, I usually update but save the update before installing so it's easier to roll back if necessary or for testing issues that others may happen upon...

(or the upcoming killer games...)

??? Teasing bugger... 😈

An account will only be terminated for very specific reasons, So, NOT for just 'any reason' and definitely NOT for 'no reason at all'.

Edit:
Account......license.......whatever. Same thing.

Unless you're talking about individual cards and/or girls.

The girls are all hot, some of them are possible girlfriend material for me, even for 1-night stands & whatever else that may lead to.

I am sure that the company will act fairly and when they do terminate account they do so for "very specific reasons".

I was objecting that in the terms it says " for any reason" and "for no reason at all".

I am merly saying that I do not like such terms. However, I do not expect them to change.

When I first signed up with iStripper I considered the terms and found them easy to understand compared to most other products. And fair. And I do understand that they need to change with time, and that the terms usually become more complicated as well. But I do not have to like it.

La dernière version de istripper est la 1.2.218 mais beaucoup d'entre vous possèdent des version antérieures.

Nous sommes en train de mettre en place un processus de mise à jour automatique mais en attendant, nous comptons sur vous pour le faire manuellement.

Voici donc 5 bonnes raisons de tenir à jour iStripper :

1/ Pour un support client plus rapide et efficace
Avec plus de 15 versions avec des fonctionnalités et des interfaces différentes, notre service client ne peut pas être aussi rapide qu'il le serait avec 1 seule et unique version.


2/ Eviter les "lacunes techniques"
Nous améliorons le logiciel étape par étape. Les différences entre une version N-1 et N peuvent sembler mineur mais si vous regarder 4 ou 5 versions antérieures; vous verrez de grosses différences. Il est beaucoup plus facile et confortable s'adapter petit à petit.

3/ Être sûr que les jeux et promotions tournent de façon fluide.
Ce serait vraiment dommage de pas pouvoir profiter de la machine à sous ou des derniers jeux à venir ^_^

4/ Avoir le moins de bugs possible.
Par exemple la dernière version fixe un bug qui faisait crasher la console d'achat qui apparait sur le côté droit. En moyenne, nous fixons entre 3 et 5 bugs à chaque mise à jour.

5/ Ne pas manque de fonctionnalités importantes


Maintenant que vous souhaitez ardemment mettre iStripper à jour, laissez moi vous rappeler comment procéder :
  • Ouvrez les paramètres (la roue crantée en haut à droite)
  • Cliquez sur "Vérifier les mises à jour"
  • Cliquez sur "Oui"

Attention, surtout ne désinstallez pas vore version avant de mettre!

A très vite sur la version 1.2.218 :)

I was trying to edit my post but had to answer the door.

@Firescale. I apologise if a recent post of mine elsewhere gave you cause for concern. You would have to do something REALLY bad to have your account terminated, such as attempting to pirate the software or content.

A serious infraction in the forum might be a racial or sexist slur against another member or model or whomever and that might earn you a permanent ban from the forum.

Just play nice and there's nothing to worry about 😊

@HombreSinSombra

No, no post of yours gave me concern. 😊

And I am not worried. And I do try to play nice. 😊

My post was prompted because I updated the program and noticed that the terms were updated so I decided to read some of it. And I didn't like the wording of some of it. So I stated my objection to it.

Anyway. Thank you for your concern, HombreSinSombra. 😊

I don't plan to update from my ancient 1.2.132 version of the software - EVER -
It does what it is supposed to do, and that is to play clips of downloaded iStripper models. It does that very well in both desktop small mode and desktop fullsize mode, and that is ALL that it has to do.

The next point. Is the writer of this quoted post possible material for a 1-night stand?

Hmmm. Not for me, obviously as I can't be impregnated. Well not with humans anyway...

I usually upgrade as soon as I am aware of a new version.
However, discovering the existence of a new version is dependent of my going to the bottom of the settings page and 'asking'. I am not in the habit of visiting the settings page as a matter of course.

Then, when I have upgraded - or even before I chose to do so - I would really like to know what the new or improved features are. Bug fixes too, though that isn't necessarily as important to me unless I am experiencing a bug, which I rarely do.

I have searched the forum after an upgrade to discover what might have changed, but usually (not always) fail to find a relevant post from the team. Am I looking in the wrong place? Or is the search keyword 'version' not good enough?

So, just as the Totem Team would like us all to keep our version up to date, I would much appreciate it if the team graced us with a regular post of exactly what the upgrade is bringing to us.

I would be much more motivated to update if you would post something (on the news screen) when a new update comes out with a list of the improvements. Honestly I have no interest in taking my time to update if there isn't a new feature that I want. When you can auto-update during off hours that will be great.

The software could only update while it's running/connected online.

Then, when I have upgraded - or even before I chose to do so - I would really like to know what the new or improved features are. Bug fixes too, though that isn't necessarily as important to me unless I am experiencing a bug, which I rarely do.

I guess the onus is usually on the member to check the forum for these updates. Unless it's an official release version, these new beta versions are usually posted in Bugs & Fixes.

I'm guessing Totem are planning to show us when these new updates become compulsory, as suggested, probably in the News section. That's what I would do...

Terms of service most everywhere are written by the most paranoid of lawyers to protect their clients from the least likely risks.

Sorry kaiju

But of those five reasons

I would not miss the slot machine or new bugs which you are not aware of when releasing a new version.

When they open a Beta thread, I'm pretty sure they do tell us what was fixed/improved/added. When the Beta becomes the current version, the Beta changes apply just the same. Do they not ?

But you have to go into the forums and look for them. They don't even pin them to the top. Too much work. If they want people to update they need to publish release notes and put it on the news page. EVERY other piece of software I have tells me what I am getting new when I update... Without me having to go search for it.

I Always check for updates at least once a week. Over time the issues for me have been fewer and further in between. I like the idea of auto update, then I don't have to look for it anymore. Yes. We do lose some features and gain others in their place. All in all a happy customer.

If "close iStripper" comes up, and you can't do it from the taskbar, do the CNTRL-ALT-DELETE function and turn it off in the "task manager". Be sure you shut down "iStripper" and not "iStripper Installer" and it should work fine from there. I had that happen to me this morning on my laptop and had to do the C-A-D thing to shut it down.
