|Failure? If you snatched the Romero they you would have followed the "lead the jealous girl" back to the home sphere strategy, which, IIRC, results in a normal date increase or decrease for the dated girlfriend, and no change in the jealous girl's progress.|
My mistake. What I thought was a failure was actually a successful one, that increased my progress with Denise from 0% to 8%. However, when I allowed Katie to intercept us as I drove into the red marker, it didn't affect my progress with Denise negatively. The progress was equivalent to about 5% or typically a no hot coffee date.
|...but first time evasion (including wasting the other gf before she can approach you) doesn't seem to instantly disable the jealous gf. In my tests, there was always a second chance that you can trigger it again even if you've successfully completed your date with the dated gf, as long as the percentage you attained didn't go higher than the other one at the end of the affair. |
Okay, I'm a bit confused here. Can you give me a specific example I can test?
Sorry again but I think I was kind of slow in getting all the informations about this. You've already basically explained it HERE
about how to keep the jealous gf active.
But the percentage thing does seem to affect it as evidenced by this limited tests I did and I just want to share this for what it's worth.
* 1st date with Denise (after acquiring her from Burning Desire), we ate at Pizza snack, Katie showed up along the way home and I allowed her to intercept us at Denise's place. I snatched her Romero at this point. Progress with Denise climbed from 0%-8%.
* 2nd date, another food date, and Katie showed up again and allowed her to intercept us back home. Progress with Denise from 8%-13%. A couple more tests on this involved evading Katie, one blowing her up before she can approach us, and another is by simply avoiding her. Both methods also resulted in her showing up on the 3rd date.
* 3rd date, another food date. To my amusement, Katie still showed up again, and allowed the same incident on the 1st & 2nd dates to happen. Progress with Denise climbed from 13%-18%.
* 4th date, another food date. Katie never showed up even after repeated replay.
All throughout, my progress with Katie was at 15%.
I was just thinking still at this point if there might be a way that the Two-Timing affair can be re-activated again if it was disabled.UPDATE
I made some tests again on Denise just to play around on Orion_SR's theory on how to keep the jealous gf active for an indefinite time.
Tests were done with Denise starting from a progress of 8% after a successful first date. The first date was with a confrontation with Katie as we drove into the home sphere.
On the second date I opted to fail it by boring Denise so we just parked near her house. Katie appeared and I applied again the lead the jealous gf to the home sphere method. My progress bar appeared green after the dialogue(though the bar was barely showing), but strangely, in my stat, Denise disappeared and only Katie's was there. After saving the game, I made more tests on whether Denise can still be dated again at this point.
I was expecting that she'll dump me when I took her out on the third date, but instead, she greeted me sweetly as if I still have a progress in my relationship with her. So again, I bored her, Katie appeared and then led her to the red marker. The same thing happened afterwards just like on the second date; the progress bar appeared with a very small green showing but Denise was again not registered in my stat.
From the fourth until the seventh date, exactly the same things would happen after the date. I thought maybe this could be one way of keeping at least one jealous gf event active for as long as you want.
