After months of beta-testing, thriXXX is making a big move…
thriXXX’ latest software, the Sexchat-Game “Chathouse 3D”, has left the beta phase and will hit their online store during the next days.
Only a new product, nothing special so far. But the small Austrian company is also about to integrate their years-old community forum gamerotica.com (which also holds hundreds of thousands custom-made items) into the brand new site thri.xxx, which is going to become the central site of the thriXXX universe.
Also, their flagship “3D Sexvilla 2” will also be part of the move! From June 4 on, the game cannot be started the normal way anymore. Instead, players will be forced to use the new game launcher. The idea is to make it easier for players to learn about thriXXX’ other games as well. And to have everything at one place. Basically a good thing, but…
Both, the moves of the website and launcher, are a bit risky if you imagine that the new site and game still look a bit unfinished and are far from being bug free. Well, users are naturally never amused about relaunches and moves of stuff they’re too familiar with. That they haven’t seen any Sexvilla update in more than 6 months doesn’t make it better. The mood in the community reached an all-time low.
Another sad fact is, that thriXXX never managed to develop a cool and working customer relation department. They left the adult forum gamerotica.com totally unmoderated for years, never put out interesting or important news in time, failed to make a Sexvilla follow-up, instead made something that the regular customers really seem to hate… and so on. I’ve have written about it earlier and not much has changed.
But it is too late. The move will not only come, it is being processed right now while i’m writing this!
For Sexvilla players it’s very important to know that they need the new launcher to start the game. A link will be provided when you start the game the normal way. You should be able to get the launcher on thri.xxx/launcher as well.
Before you do that, BACKUP all your files! You find them at C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\thriXXX\3DSexVilla2-Everlust
At least you must make a copy of the “save”-folder. But i recommend – since the move means a huge change to the game’s backend, and you never know – to make a copy of the whole “3DSexVilla2-Everlust” directory. This can take a while but is absolutely necessary.
The new version of the game (it is still Sexvilla 2) will stop connecting to gamerotica.com, all files will upload to the new thri.xxx site. All the stuff you ever posted/uploaded to the old forum will be moved to thri.xxx. In the future you will need to login to thri.xxx, no matter if you like it or not. The old gamerotica forum will be set to “read only” in the near future.
This is only a quick introduction to this controversal topic. If you want to know more, read the official statements in this thread on gamerotica. But please don’t support the shit storming behaviour of some users there ;)
